There are some among the more con

look askance at the action of the sen

a particle of difference in the market

In this community about seven years,
and In that time have endeared them
selves to the people. A family of nine
children (four girls and five boys)
have blessed their home, all grown
to manhood and womanhood, all of

occasion. The family are staunch
adherents of the Presbyterian church

them a long and happy and prosper

are all in the past, and that coming
years may be full of sunshine, and
"soft south winds blowing softly."
That many more anniversaries of

Co-Operation Among Farmers.
Men In all other lines of business
organize and work together. Farmers
are beginning to see the need of con
certed action, but as a rule we still
work single-handed. At Lombard, 111-,
about twenty miles west of Chicago,
the farmers who produce milk for
sale In the big city have tried several
times to organize in order to force
the milk trust to pay them a price
in accordance with what the customer
pays, but the trust is always able to
hire some farmer to break the rules
of the local association or to talk
Against the project to such an extent
as to defeat its ends. That is one
great difficulty in forming protective
measures among farmers. There are
always a few men in the community
who are willing to sacrifice future ad
vantages to gain a few cents in pres
ent price.
