From tho foregoing, It will be soon
that most decidedly the Kxchange Is

whole record Is one of consistent ef

of the Times in
Tho North American Fruit Kx-
ganlzntlon recently have admitted
their problem In this regard, nnd
have expressed the hopo that sooner
or later, increasing tonnage will en
able them to employ more salesmen.
Hut Increasing tonnage of only
northwestern fruit will never enable
the work to be done with maximum
efficiency, for the reason stated.
The Northwestern and Its asso
ciates In the North American, handled
during tho year ending December
31st, 1913. over 11,000 cars of fruits
and cgctablcs, maintain over 100
direct agencies in as many different
cities, and represent. In Its operations,
(estimated ( over 15.000 growers, In
all parts of tho country, all of whoso
tonnago combines to support service
of a kind not parallelled elsewhere.
at a cost jcr unit lower than produced
under any other conditions. It will
bo seen then, that the Kxchange has
been practicing, slnco 1910, practical
co-operation In a positive, effective
way. Proven performance Is always
more convincing than theories and
promises for tho futuro.
Now, tho whole question rcsoltc
Itself Into this: What Is our object
In growing fruit? If you nre In the
buslnofs primarily to mako money
for yoursolf, you owe It to oursoir
and to your family to got right down
to braes tacks and romparo tho re
sults of tho various marketing agen
cies. Thero are bound to bo several
of them. Never doubt that.
Kvon In California, so often men
tioned as tho homo of co-oporatlvn
marketing, there are several large,
strong factors In tho deal, nnd the
successful growers nro not by ar
means to be found In any one of
thorn. Mr. C C. Chapman, the most
successful individual orange grower
In California, and the owner of the
famous "Mission Ilrand" Ik not u
member of tho Cullfornla Fruit Grow

roady settling down on similar Unci.
and no ono concern, co-oporntlvu or
otherwibo. will over control all or
even nearly all of tho fruit. Fur
thermore, It would bo trenmondously
against your interests If any one con
cern, co-operative or otherwise, wore
to control it all, or nearly all.
Human nature, you know, Is hu
man nature, whethor found in tho
ranks of pure co-oporatlon or outside
thoni. And monopoly tends to
abuses, to Inertia, to extravagance to
corruption. This Is true when one
political party controls the govern
ment machinery for too long, nnd It
Is truo of any other human Institu
tion. Competition is needed by overj
man to sharpen his faculties; to
bring tho best out of him, Theso
things being fundamentally true, It
Ik up to you to study the whole ques
tion and decide for yourself In which
method of marketing you can rely
most advantageously to yourself, If
oii want money, jou would bettor

I wnut to warn you ugalust the
sophistry of supposing that co-operation
and organization Is a pannten
for all market Ills. Wo liuvo noticed
of Into the growing use of tho expres
sion "Itemember 1912," much ns the
expression "Itoiiuniiher tho Mitliio"
was used In ISUK. u Is nil very well
to teiueinber I HI-', uud take what
step we inn lo gunid iimiiIii a re
petition of IhOHe conditions. If fit (
is eipmlly well not tt fool ournolenf
In tho belief that co-operation ulnne
will prevent thorn. As a tuntter of
fact, there will be lean ears - en
loan years -as well ui fnl years, In
tho futuro ns In tho past Co-operation
Is not responsible for this .eiirV
Reed prices, nor will It prexeut some
future year's very bad price. Fit
te you realize tho truth of this and
build jour business nccordlngly, yon
will be greatly etnbnrrassed later on.
The California Fruit Growers' Kx
change to often quoted ns the ne
phi ultra of co-operation, has not
been nhlo to avert this ear's mar
ket disaster: many scores of cars ol
oranges from California have re
turned red Ink to the growers and
many more linvo sold for les than
cost of production, despite the fact
that huge sums of money have been
sent and are being being spent In
newspaper and magnztnn space to ad
vertise the fruit.
