They are always cheerful, we are ioici.( How  can we be cheerful and yet not enjoy Christmas  this year. It may not be as usual, but it is up  to us all to be as cheerful as possible. While a  very large number of boys are at the 1' ront  nVhting for Home and Freedom it is up to us  to keep the Home Fires burning, and to do this  we must make everything around as bright as  possible.. 1114  We must be bright ourselves,   and   help   to  make others the same.  DOES CQ-QPER-  *PAY  US?  Question of Co-Operation Taken  U]> in an Interesting' Planner  Compares  Averages.  Many of the fruit growers in the',  Mission-Hatzic district are intending |  ' i.o. ship   their   products   individually  next, season.    Having   become     dissatisfied with the co-operative methods and results of  the  past season,  they intend to launch forth on'their  own   hook,   claiming   that   their  own  efforts in years gone by have proved  more fruitful to them than shipping  through co-operative channels.       No  doubt this is quite true if we compare  the returns for rhubarb and raspberries with tlie returns the  individual  shippers received five years ago. The  returns  for  rhubarb and  raspberries  shipped co-operatively this year Avere  very unsatisfactory. Tlie average nett  returns received for rhubarb was    a-  bout  3.r,<!.     Last  year's  average  was  nearly twice as much.    This season's  average for rasps is not available as  all of the returns have not been sent  in.   However,   this     year's  nett     returns  on  rasps  will   lie  considerable  lower  than   those   of   last  year,   due  no   doubt  to   Hie  adverse- conditions  experienced in this year's picking season.     Now  tho  demand     for     small  fruits on the prairie markets exceeded  the   supply,     in   short,    the   eastern  markets including tho  centres    that,  arc usually glutted, had to go hungry.  Why  then,  you  ask,  is  it thai, with  Hiich   a   strong   demand   tho   returns  were so low.    This can be attributed  lo  the condition  of a  couple -A the  cars on arrival and also to the lack,  get this, of co-operation at the selling  end.     Herein  lies  the. secret of successful marketing and without, which  is    hair-hearl.cd    co-operation    only.  Wholehearted    co-opnration    of    the  trovers at the ������rrowing end is an absolute necessity and is the foundation  Hiat   creates the  f-o-opcrat.ion  at   the  filing end that gives the best: results.  In  order to distribute  to give tlie  best   results  it   is  essential   that  the  -rowers  be  in  close  touch .with  the  markets that, they supply-     Familiarity with the trade that is supplied is  nothing more or  less  than co-operation and is good business. The growers interests are no loss important at  the selling end than at. the producing  end   therefore they should bo linked  more closely together.       Control    ot  the ������ource of supply, judicious advertising, an established agent, or brokerage connected with or representing  the'growers are  only  a   few  of  the  many suggestions that, constitute cooperative distribution. m  This last season, tho growers in the  Mission Hatzic districts were orgamz-  ed better than ever before. The Hatzic Fruit Growers Association had a  larger membership than in any previous vear. Crop contracts wherein,  the growers agreed to ship all their  '���������:>������p", through the organization were  Figneri hv memebrs of the Fraser Valley Growers. This made the F. V. G.  '.-olid inasmuch as It controlled every  shinning berry that its members produced. The results of last seasons  co-operation have not probably appeared to the grower to have been:  beneficial from a financial point of  view, but from a shipping and distn-  -:������nBS aiinb sew 31 unodpuirjs Sunuri  factory.'  There was very little difficulty thus  season in getting the required' number of crates for a car and every car  went out above the minimum. There  was absolutely no congestion at any  point where the  worries were distributed" and the L. C. L.' shipments were  not   considered   to   be   a   competing  factor.    There was practically no A  1 merican  rasps  brought into  Alberta  'or Saskatchewan, which was due part  ly to the weather conditions at that  time but mostly to the fact that the  F.  V.   G.   had  contracted to   ship   a  specified number of cars, which the  growers had contracted    to    supply  them'with and the trade naturally ex  pected that their wants would be supplied with B. C. stuff and did not en-  Furnisher of Funeral Supplies  Phone Connection. WisLion City _  courage or make provision I'or importing the American borrios. It is  unite true that tho prairie market  will give preference to the 13. C. rasps  if possible through thorough organization.  In regards to indiscriminate shipping, the jobbers of Calgary who  handle considerable L. ��������� (.!.' 1- ������tn  state that next season they expect to  -eceive enough rasps from points oiit-  sidoof the-Mission-Hatzic districts to,  practically supplly their wants. Further east there woul dbe a market tor  a quantity that could be shipped  C. 1,. although the large centres  .v'ould have to be avoided. In other  words the success of indiscriminate  shipping depends practically on llio.  uiiiall townB where a retail trade is  worked up and where the Trait would  be sold at a F. 0. 13. shipping point,  price.  ��������� Word has been received that our  once popular young lawyer, I������.
