Producers as a class have made In
late years long strides along the line
of more intelligent and systematic
methods or marketing their stuff.
Time was when they were the luck
less victims of commission men, too
often unscrupulous, who extracted
fat commission and turned over as lit
tle as their generosity dictated. But
producers grew weary of the holdup
game and organized themselves Into
co-operative associations whose chief
object was the securing of a better
market This movement was fought
bitterly by those who had waxed fat
under the old system of Individual
buying, but it was of no use. The co
operative movement Is here to stay.
and Its success Is assured. First grain
growers organized; then followed the
organization of growers of oranges,
apples, grapes, small fruits and gar
den truck, and In almost every in
stance market and price conditions
have improved as a result In those sec
tions where such organization has
been effected. Not only doca such or
ganization make possible the estab
lishment of a standard of excellence
In the grade and quality of the prod'
uce marketed, especially true In the
case of fruits, but It makes possible
the hiring of experienced men whose
chief business it Is to look after and
report on market conditions in the va
nous distributing centers. One may
give his stuff the most scientific and
painstaking care, but if be Is held up
when it comes to selling it It avails
him little, and It would be decidedly
to his Interest to organize. Producers
In any locality who are still marketing
Individually should look into the pos
sibilities of this co-operative move
ment, not for the purpose of exacting
extortionate prices from the consum
ing public, but to Insure fair returns
for themselves, who endure the sweat
and bear the brunt of production.
A TIMELY WARNING.
The Rocky Mountain Husbandman,
one of the pioneer agricultural papers
of Montana, bas lately been publish
ing some timely words of caution for
the benefit of the bomeseekers throng
ing Into the state from the east and
are filing on the bench lands away
from the river valley with the Inten
tion of raising wheat. It states that
these lands must be worked by dry
farming methods, which many of the
newcomers know little or nothing
about Of the advice and suggestion
which a recent Issue of the Husband
man contains the following Is worthy
of reproduction for the benefit of those
who are about to go to the seml-arld
sections of the west to make their
homes: "The worst mistake It is pos
sible to make Is to try to raise a crop
of grain on sod land the first season.
The man with as much money as our
dry land farm experts recommend Is
all right anywhere, for be can eat and
bis family will have plenty, but the
man who undertakes to build a dry
land home without ample funds will
find it different from a like undertak
ing on Irrigated land. For the wife
and children of the dry land home
builder who is short of a year's main
tenance our heart bleeds. The dry
land home Is not meant for such. The
proposition is essentially one for the
well to do class." The advice which
this paper gives is brave and honest,
and its suggestions cannot be charged
with having been dictated by a selfish
Interest when the natural tendency
would be to minimize rather than give
at face value the difficulties with
which the settler on the dry lands
would be confronted.
CARE THAT COUNTS.
As showing that It Is scientific care
of orchards rather than an alchemy of
soil or climate that is the largely de
termining factor In raising high qual
ity and prize winning fruit it la worth
noting the fact that It was a south
western Iowa grower who won some
of the best prizes offered at the Den
ver apple show in less than carload
exhibits, and that, too, in competition
with the best box fruit of the west
It is doubtless true that conditions are
better in Colorado, Idaho, Washington
and Oregon for the production of ap
ples than lu lown, Missouri, Arkansas,
Michigan or New fork, but notwith
standing this it Is the care which the
western fruit ranchman gives his trees
that is chiefly responsible for his splen
did success. Were methods that are
at present in vogue in some eastern
orchards to be adopted In the western
fruit valleys there would not be enough
marketable apples produced on the
ranches to pay taxes and cost of till
age from season to season. As we
have before said in these notes, It la
the pnlustaklng rare that the west
erner gives his fruit ranch, and that
as bis primary and chief occupation,
that makes bis labor so profitable.
Many an eastern orchard owner has
learned this fact and Is profiting there
by. Many more should profit by it.
SHE MAY BE "MRS. SPEAKER."
If Mrs. Decker Goat to Congrats and
tha Stateame.l Elect Har, What Thenf
Lots of women waut to vote, Mrs.
Manila ltlcker wants to become gov
ernor of New Hampshire, Mme. Mar
guerite I mm nd wants to be president
of France, and Mrs. Sarah Piatt Deck
er wants to go to congress. There; it's
all out -all lu one breath! You've got
to hurry uowadays when you want to
tell what women waut to do. Itefore
you get through saying It they may
have dune it.
Of course Mrs. ltlcker doesn't really
think she'll be Mrs. Governor Rlcker
or (iovernor Mrs. Rlcker, whichever is
proper. And Mme. Durand probably ad
mits In private that she hits not decid
ed on a uew color scheme for the pres
iilontliil Apartments lu the Palais de
I LIysees. Rut Mrs. Sarah Piatt Deck
er really thinks she will be elected to
tl.e house of representatives next fall.
What is more to the point, the women
voters of Colorado seem to have about
made up their minds to send her there.
Woman suffrage is stronger In Colo
rado than ever before. The women
were greatly Interested In the efforts
of Judge Ren B. I.lndsry, the famous
children's friend, to have himself re-
MRS. SARAH PLATT DECKER.
elected to the bench of the juvenile
court, which he founded. They turned
out In great numbers to vote for "Lit
tle Hen," and he was re-elected.
Mrs. Docker's appearance In the na
tioiuil capitol would create quite a sen
satioii. Constitutional lawyers are not
sure whether the supreme law of the
uatjou forbids a wouiuu to act as a
legislator or not. Of course there is
the word "he" in the cluuse relating
to the election of congress men, but it
is thought that a woman could get
around that by pleading that in the
constitutional provision the word "he'
Is used Interchangeably with "she," as
elsewhere. "If Mrs. Decker is elected,
Is any man going to be ungallant
enough to question her right to take
her seat?" said ouc authority.
Mrs. Decker Is surely qualified by
experience to render wise service to
the nation in the matter of legislation.
She is known as a student of ques
tions relating to education and the
uplifting of the downfalien. She has
been chairman of the Colorado board
of charities and correction and presi
dent of the Woman's club of Denver,
one of the biggest and most enthusi
astic In the world, and president of
the General Federation of Women's
Clubs. AMANDA RIDDLE.
