ANCIENT CABBAGE CAUSES
A MOST FANTASTIC DUE AH'
I came into a
through which a
meadered its way,
on either side of
which a fringe of cedar, fir aud
spruce trees formed the edges of ex-
tensive forests. I landed at tho City
of C by mil and took the P. D. Q.
water flier to tho City of B where
I found a happy, prosperous and grow
ing city, composed of mills, factorios,
meat shops, laundry, foundry, niachinu
shops and various other mercantile
establishments, and all necessary bus
iness establishments usually found in
any up-to-dato and growing city.
A city water supply, though not
perfected, still being improved, fairly
good strcots, also being rapidly im
In fact, I found an up-to-dato city
of its sizo in every respect, with rap
idly advancing property values and in
Being a farmer naturally I became
interested in that phase of tho coun
try's development and I beheld many
agriculturists operating in a small way
ono with a basket of eggs, another
with a basket of carrots, another had
a sack of potatoes another a few box
es of berries, another with two or
threo rolls of nutter another with a
few heads of lcttuco and still another
with a push cart containing perhaps
:t dozen cellery plants.
All these tho merchants brought,
trading groceries for them at tho rate
of twenty to fifty dollars a ton al
though all could be produced in quanti
ties at a big profit for from fivo to
ten dollars a ton nnd the lettuce for
ono fourth of what tho farmer re
ceived for it. And thu eggs brought
prices that would m'ako our forefath
ers turn green with envy.
I also beheld many peopla carrying
from tho store goods for which they
promised to pay, some of which
ivhilo somo remembered for a time
and a few actually paid as they a
greed. and almost I decided to cense
to roam, but being a cautious man, I
decided to wait a wnilo, wlien ono
night I fell into a deep sleep and
I dreamed I was a farmer among
these I beheld and seeing a merchant
who had lost a hundred dolllais on
Mr. A. charge me who "nlways pay
my bills" five cents more for tho sack
of flour than would otherwise have
been necessary, in order to pay his
rent and continue to be a distributor
and market finder for our class. I
tired of such "wholesale robbery" and
decided to organize a company anil put
in a farmer's store.
I consulted my neighbors, somo o
whom had forgotten their promises to
the merchants, and some who had a
grievance like my own, and straight
way we launched our craft on the al
luring sea of commcrco swearing ren
gonnco on tho wholo robber mercantile
class and vowing to put them out of
business. Being fortunate in our ser
vants, our business prospered and tho
robbers lost out, of course, though to
beat them wo forced down our apples
from $1.00 a box to 50 cts and our but
ter from 30 cts to 25 cts per pound
r.nd all our other produce in propor
tion, but we beat the robbers at their
game and saved ten cents on a sack of
flour and twentyfive cents on n sack
of sugar and had n chance to buy the
robbor's stock nt bankrupt snlo.
Tnnu passed and I beheld but one
store left, onu end of which was
waruhousu wheru all kinds of good
were stored. Thu streots and side
walks fell into ruin, electric lights nnd
news papers wero alike extinguished,
many business buildings were burned,
some by the robbers for the insurance
we vorily believed.
The robbers crowded into other lines
securing many of the best positions
left, such as talley clerks, bookkeep
ors warenouse Hands nnd even our
faithful servant who helped us to the
undoing of the robbers lost his job to
n more competent man und was turned
out in the cold world to tramp with all
the lionproducinir workers tn whom
Undo Sam forgot to givu a farm,
and even God seems to have overlook
ed creating one for.
w mi tneso conditions we had to
send our butter, our eggs, our cheeso,
our potntnim, our fruit and our vege
table to thu cititm and null Uient for
a Ninall poitiou of whut wo formerly

The Dream of What .Might Re
4 saw when our farmers' stor was
yist under way a p.ew corporation or-
Jfanized and called "The Merchants'
farming Company" the robber
merchants all taking stock therein
luts novt'l concern secured a large
tract of the best laud in th county
and put a practical farmer, several of
vTiium were louiu mon- tliiir nwn
number, at the head. Modern inaehm
ery and scientific methods were Mn
ployed. Their fjrm imfiirn,l t.m.nti.
fully of carrots, beets, onions, cabbage
cauliflower, narsnstia. tun.ii.s. ..,!
tatoes also celery nnd eggs, in fact
all that tho farmers brought to town
before in their baskets and Utgs was
furnished to tho .morrhHnta fnr illBf
a small percent mora than tie actual
cost of production, with Wu further
understanding that even the profits
wero to bo divided at the end of the
year in proportion to the amount used
and tho monoy invested. Carrots wero
furnished tho merchant for hi ct a lb
and sold to tho landless laboring man
at 1 ct per lb instead of threa cents
as formerly. Ono aero produced 12,000
heads of lettuce at a cost of about ?100
dolivered to tho merchants aud at one
cent per head made him a fabulous
profit nnd saved tho customer 80 per
cent of the former price, thus onabling
him to purchase aud consumo moro
This was U-as of mauy other items of
vcgotnbles. Our farmers sora was
compelled to buy of pack basket men
and wero soon without produco being
uuablo to obtain as cheaply as t ha
merchants. Besides tho merchants in
vaded our pet domain, having made so
much from his vegetables that ho had
money and was able to undersell us on
flour, sugar and crackers as so that
even our farmers deserted us.
