While Grange members in this or- !
ganization, which number nearly 1,- j
000,000 Patrons at the present time,
have all benefited from the above
practical program of half century, so
successfully achieved, the fact is sig
nificant that all farmers outside the
Grange have similarly benefited, as
its service has been conspicuously of
overflowing character to all the rur
HELPS A LLM FARMERS
THE PRACTICAL WORK OF THE
GRANGE NOT CONFINED
Few of the farmers who have not
yet joined the Grange realize how
much they owe to that organization
for the service it has rendered to
agriculture as a whole during its 60
years of existence, in addition to the
benefits it has brought directly to its
own membership. This is significant
ly emphasized in the following con
cise summary of actual Grange achi-
evmcnts for the benefit of the rural
welfare, about which many farmers
will be interested to learn:*
It was through Grange initiative
and presistent agitation that rural de
livery of mail brought to the farm
homes of the United States one of its
greatest blessings, and in which all
farmers have shared, non-Grange
members as well as those affiliated
with the organization.
The earliest organized champion of
the good roads movement was the
Grange, and discussion of the subject
in thousands of Grange meetings
created the sentiment which first de
manded better roads in the various
states, particularly those from farm
to market, whose benefits are shared
by all farmers today.
Grange mutual fire insurance com
panies doing business in a score of
states carry nearly $500,000,000 of
fire risks for farmer members of the
Grange, with a very marked saving
over the rates in old line companies.
Even more important, however, is the
fact that the presence of this exten
sive group of Grange mutual com-
panieshas has had a highly salutary
effect in holding down rates in gen
eral on farm property everywhere.
With the certainty that if the com
petitive feature which those Grange
companies continually provide were
removed, insurance rates on all rural
property would take a big jump.
Of the millions of farm women who
are running a sewing machine today
very few realize that the first great
fight successfully carried through by
the National Grange was to prevent
the renewal of monopoly pate..t right
on sewing machines, and that in con
sequence every sewing machine pur
chased by the housewife for the last
40 years had cost many dollars less
than if the Grange had not been on
guard for the rural welfare.
No class of people derives greater
direct benefit from the operation of
the parcel post system than do the
famers, and yet for years the Grange
unaided, conducted a fight for the
enactment of parcel post legislation,
opposed by the powerful financial in
terests represented by the great ex
press companies of the United States.
Few legislative measures espoused
by the Grange have been more vigor
ously fought than those in behalf of
pure food laws and requiring the
package marking of fertilizers, insec-
tides, etc., showing their actual con
tent; while pure seed laws, staining
of seeds, etc., have been other Grange
measures of similar practical char
acter from which every farmer con
Other measures which the Grange

farmers universally have included the
establishment of the Federal Farm
Loan system; legislation for the pre

animals thus slaughtered; enactment
of strict laws prohibiting the manu

Federal appropriations for the eradi

corn borer, San Jose scale, cattle
ticks, and various other destructive
insects and plant and animal dis

manufacture of tilled cheese and an
other to prevent the sale of adulter
ated lard; advocating rigorous gov

all packing plants and to insure the
wholesome handling of food products
everywhere; initiating strict prohibi
tive legislation against the manufac
ture, Oslo or transportation of adul
terated and misbranded insecticides;
the prime mover in securing the so-

Road building is now an interna
tional industry. America started the
movement with its unprecedented us
of automobiles. It devised machinery
which made it easy to build a hundred
miles of road, where formerly it was
a task to build one mile.

newspaper advertisement publised by
the Province of Ontario Department

was in Ontario that the practice of
putting on gravel or crushed stone in
thin layers was first proven to be
more economical as well as more safe

“Ontario developed the asphaltic

In ten minutes after being laid, it is
hard enough for traffic. Deours are
not necessary while this construction
is being put down.
“In building the highways, every
consideration has been given to the
safety of those who use them. The
greatest factor of safety now lies in
automobile drivers themselves * * *
