The pricing of tfie products of the
farm, by the producers themselves. Is
the next great step forward to be ta-
ken by the race.
Are^you roady to hold your cotton
if the price does not suit to sell. Is
your warehouses completed? Let us
be at all times ready.
A country is great only when the
people own their homes. Let’s build
homes, beautiful homes. Let’s make
conditions such that all can own
homes and be happy.
The way to succeed is to be pre-
pared for any emergency. Let’s not
be dumpers this time.
The producers must not compete
with each other. They must have an

That the farmer who persistently re-
fuses to# help, now that his Union
neighbors are building warehouses for
the mutual protection of all, is not
anywise overburdened with public
spirit and the sense of fairness.
The Union farmer is striving for
better agricultureal conditions. He is
working, not for self alone, but for the
elevation of the entire farming class,
realizing that the broader, deeper in-
terests of all producers are insepara-
That the reason some men are so
loud-mouthed and noisy at a State
Convention is that their home people
won’t listen to them, so they simply
must work off extra steam when they
get away from home, or "bust."
That the delegate who is always on
the floor or struggling to get recogni
tion, ought to be brained with a corn
stalk or a rotten banana.
That the delegate who expects to
have everything fixed jus; percisely as
he w’ould like it will return home a

spend millions in the useful work of
promoting the science of agriculture,
but not one red cent in promoting sci-
entific marketing of farm products,
which is of even greater importance.
The farmers must do this themselves.
Union farmers are building for the
future. They seek to improve the so-
cial features of rural life, and they
aim to adopt the best business meth-
ods for elevating their calling and
making it the most desirable, ns well
as the most useful of vocations.
