Prepared by the United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture.
Specialists in the United States Ds-
partment of Agriculture urge con-
stantly the establishing of uniform
standards for farm products, and de-
clare that if these standards are
maintained, once they have been
adopted, the confidence of the public
will be established, and the success
of co-operative marketing more gen-
erally assured. Too many organiza-
tions are brought into Ming as a re-
sult of enthusiasm created by appeals
to prejudice and by misconception.
The proper foundation is through a
well-recognized need for an organiza-
"Co-operative principles," said a co-
operative specialist of the bureau of
markets, "must be adhered to In the
organization and operation of farm-
ers' marketing associations. The
farmers themselves cannot be expect-
ed to have a vital Interest in a mar-
keting organization operated for the
profit of and controlled by a few per-
sons. Such an organization should be
operated, of course, to effect savings
and to render service and not to earn
profits for distribution as dividends on
money Invested. A fair rate of inter-
est is granted to the capital invested
by the members, and the remainder
of any surplus to be distributed should
be divided in accordance with patron-
age, that is, the amount of business
transacted with the organization.
Loyalty Is Essential.
"The membership should be open to
producers only who desire to avail
themselves of Itj facilities, and there
should be safeguards to prevent the
ownership and control of the enter-
prise from falling into the hands of a
few persons. The success of the en-
tire effort depends upon the loyalty of
the members and their interest in the
organization, the high standards they
maintain, and their distinct under-
standing that as a business associa-
tion it should be managed by a man
or men able to earn a dignified com-
pensation. Disloyalty has caused the
failure of more than one co-operative
organization, and it is a weakness
which can be remedied only by the
members themselves.
"The manager, of course. Is' the
keystone supporting the business. The
salary offered him should attract high-
class ability as in any business look-
ing to success, and he should have au-
thority to support his work. An en-
tire business can be ruined by an in-
competent manager at its head.
"A co-operative marketing associa-
tion may be likened to a typewriter,
which is a very efficient machine, but
useless until you have some one com-
petent to operate it. The success of
co-operative marketing depends al-
most entirely upon obtaining a suffi-
cient volume of business, observing
true co-operative principles, employ-
ing capable management, having
thoroughly modern business methods,
and finally, loyal membership."
Steady Growth Tend6 to Success.
Men who have traveled in every
part of the United States observing
the work of co-operative organizations
of various kinds, believe that the suc-
cess of widespread co-operative mar-
keting may be endangered through a
poorly conceived hope or expectation
that a hard and fast organization of
producers will make it possible to sell
anything and ever.\|hing at a prede-
termined price without regard to qual-
ity or conditions. This is a dangerous
attitude to assume.
Men who have given close attention
to the subject declare that there is a
widespread feeling that it is possible
to revolutionize completely the entire
system of marketing and attain suc-
cess from the outset. This, of course,
is impossible because It Is necessary
to build upon a solid foundation and
to work out the many problems in-
volved carefully. Steady, substantial
and healthy growth tends to perma-
nency and success.
No one should believe that because

tive association, unusual prices are as-

does not receive food enough to keep
herself in thrifty condition and at the
same time develop her calf, say spe-
cialists of the United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture, both she and the
calf mtist suffer.
In endeavoring to raise good, thrifty
cnlves many dairymen handicap them-
selves at the start by not properly
feeding the pregnant cows. Such cows
should have an abundance of palatable
and succulent or Juicy feed in order to
insure good body flesh and healthy,
thrifty condftion at calving time. The
calves will then be well developed,
strong and sturdy, and ready to re- council to an Oklahoma City electric
dormitory authorized by the last ses-
sion of the legislature, will be com-
pleted. The dormitory is to accom-
modate 36 students.

Bureau of Plant Industry Working
Out Preventive and Control Meas
ures for Diseases of Different
Cereal Crop*.
Prepared by the United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture.
If all the wheat now destroyed an-
nually by pests could be saved and
made Into flour the United States De-
partment of Agriculture says it would
add approximately 29,463,700 barrels
to the yearly output to the nation.
The annual production of wheat In
this country for the four-year period,
1916 to 1919, Inclusive, was 783,849,-
500 bushels. The annual loss from
disease during this period was 147,-
318,500 bushels.
While it is not possible entirely to
eliminate wheat diseases, it is pos-
sible to reduce the toll much below
what it has been In recent years, says
the department. One branch of the
work of the office of cereal Investiga-
tions in the bureau of plant Industry
is to work out the preventive and con-
trol measures for the diseases of all
cereal crops. Another branch of the
work of this office, which is of equal
importance In increasing production
of cereal crops, is the development
and introduction of iuperlor varieties
of grain which produce higher yields

One of Very Best Ways Farmtr Can
Dispose of Surplus Milk Is to
Feed It to Fowls.
The dairyman (or the farmer who
runs a small dairy In connection with
his farm) is in an enviable position
to make the biggest proportionate
profits from a flock of poultry. One
reason for this Is that the best foods
as milk producers are also excellent
egg producers. For instance, clover,
alfalfa, middlings, rye, etc., are all
palatable and beneficial to cows and
chicks alike—and so is an occasional
mess of finely chopped silage.
Furthermore, the cows furnish one
of the best of foods for laying hens,
for milk is a valuable egg food in any
form. One of the very best ways any
farmer can dispose of surplus milk
with profit Is to feed It to the hens,
or to growing young stock. It fur-

Impossible to Get Light From Wax
Candle Without the Presence of
Necessary Gases.
A wax candle really Is a gas torch,
fou will find that when you apply a
lighted match to the wick of a candle
It will not light readily. You have to
hold the match to the wick until the
wick burns sufficiently to heat the wax
hot enough to turn it into gases which,
on mixing with the oxygen In the air,
produce the fire in the form of light.
The candle will continue to be
lighted and to burn as long as the
wax continues hot enough to give off
the gases or until the candle is en-
tirely consumed. Any Interruption to
this process of transforming the wax
into gas will result in the extinguish-
ing of the light.
The reason the candle goes out
when you blow on the flame Is that
the gases which feed the flame at
the end of the wick are blown away,
the process of turning the hot wax
into gas is Interrupted and with the
pus supply shut off the flame Is ex-
tinguished.—Cleveland Plain Dealer.

According to Organist, He Was Alwayf

In the organ case over the performer's
head. It remained there for about
a year.
It was a musical little fellow, and
when the man began to play it would
spin down almost to a level with his
shoulder and gently swing to and fro
and listen. When he had finished a
piece it would draw itself up to Us
nest, and when he began another,
down it would come again and resume
its position as an interested listener.
It had six legs. Two it put out In
the air as a balance pole, two it
handled the web with, and the third
pair It used In pulling itself up hand
over hand, as sailors climb a rope.
The organist came at last to watch
for the little fellow, and it was always
faithful, so that he was sure of at
