After many decades of attempted organization under various plans and under various names, the fact remains that the farmers are yet the most backward of all major groups in effective co-operation. All the farm organiza tions together represent but a relatively small percentage of the total number of those engaged in agriculture. It may be that this can be partially accounted for by the distances which separate them, making it more diffi cult to get together frequently for a discussion of their problems. But with automobiles and better roads this handicap is not so great as formerly. The principal hind rance to effective organization is evidently the lack of interest among them and the tendency of each to shift for himself. Progressive farmers realize that marketing is one of their most vital problems, and one which it is impossible to solve without united effort. But until the great body of farmers grasp he benefits which strong co-operative marketing organizations can bring to them, the entire ag ricultural industry will labor under a severe handicap. In order to obtain the fullest measure of relief, whether through legislation, better production methods or co-operative marketing, farmers must unite, as other groups do, for mutual protection and advancement. ----------oOo---------- ELECTRICITY, THE MODERN HIRED MAN This statement was made by Victor when they get stuck in a mudhole, Give Us a Chance on Your Purchases E Varconi, one o f the best known mo etc., etc. One day the fire alarm rings out. tion picture players o f Hollywood) . . . . 11111111111 m 111111111 m 11 i 1111111111111111111111111111 ■ 1111111111111111111: 1111111111111111111 • i provoked heated debates during the It is the chief’s home again but this filming o f “ Chicago,” at the De time a fire is really attacking it. j i u i i i i m i i i i i i i i i i i i i m i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i m i i i i i m m i m i i i i i i i i m i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i m i i i i Mille studio.

It is a great story of the Chicago underworld. “ The day when farmers will be able to “ lie in bed on Sunday morning and merely press a button” to get most of their work done, seems to be approaching reality,” says the Universal Farmer. “ Modern inventions, chiefly those which find new uses for electricity on the farm, while they may not bring about this millenum will greatly lighten farm work. ‘Nowadays it is practical, where rural transmission lines bring electricity to the farm, to milk the cows, sep arate the cream, grind and mix the feed, bale and dry the hay, clip and curry the animals, light the farm buildings, operate machinery in the repair shop, and perform many other jobs by electricity that formerly took time and hard work.
