THE   DISAPPEARANCE  OF ANDERSON  The disappearance of Mr. William  Anderson of Matsqui, a farmer of  Matsqui. is still shrouded in mystery  and the ccorts of police have failed to find any trace of the missing  man.  Anderson left Lane Bros, store at  twenty minutes to twelve .on Thursday last to catch the ferry. Since  then all trace of him has been lost.  The man who looks after the C. P. R.  bridge has a faint remembrance of  seeing a man on the bridge about  that time, but as a boat was going  through the draw, no particular attention was paid to wliom the man  was.  Anderson, who was about 35 years  of age, had just a small sum of  money on him it is believed.  He was an industrious man and  Mrs. Hougen. from whom he rented  the farm he was working, speaks in  the  highest terms of him.  "BROWNS   IN  TOWN"   AT  RIDGEDALE, JANUARY 28TI1  The.

Now we have often  Avoiidered Avhat Premier Oliver Avould  call real "mudslinging"'.  But believe us John will "boar"  himself into the Avrong stall sooner or  later and then there will he some-'  thing doing.  Shame! John Olive."���������  The . follOAving is taken from a  speech of Premier Oliver at Alder-  grove this Aveek���������the biggest public  meeting ever held in Aldergrove, and  here is the report:  , "He (Premier Oliver) announced  that the Government -will at the coming session make an appropriation  for cheap stumping powder for settlers and farmers engaged in land-  clearing.  "Economically such a policy is indefensible," sand the Premier *'"According Lo sound economic science  land Avhich cannot, pay for'the cost  of its own clearing and cultivation  ought to be left until it will pay for  its oAvn treatment. But avc are dealing Avith a condition;   not, a theory.  Our boast! Our pride! that there  is no more fertile laud in the whole  world than that in tho .Fraser Valley  seems Lo fall to the ground v.-ith one-  grand slam when wc realize that at  Aldergrove the premier insinuates  that   the land is not   worth  clearing,  Then he says "a wi.se government  does not stand on precise scientific  principles  at a   Lime   like this."  We were always under the impression that the lands of tho Fraser Valley were fertile. Surely Mr. Cov/por  has.misrepresented Mr. Oliver. Cheap  .stumping powder is required Lo enable men Lo clear tho land, hut not  because that land "cannot pay for the  cost of its own clearing and culti\'a-  tion".  ii-lall. it .'las boen a   .question  (disputed   recently.  j      Under  the old  ael.

Im  ''duty of the board as it now    stands,  'Mrs.  Watt continued,  is to carry out  the  plans of the department,  whereas ihe original intention was that1 thy  board carry out the wishes of the institute.   The  institutes   are     practically  forced into setting up a provincial   organization,   the   speaker   emphasized, since, first, thoy Avish to be  in  line  with other    provinces,    and,  secondly,  since  the  only  central  organization they had, namely, the advisory board, has been so divested of  responsibilities 'and' powers as to  be  of no value to    the     institutes.  Mr. F.' W. Lang, represeniiagithe  Department of Agriculture, was,  present, Lo tell-the ladies AvhaL the  department is willing to do if such  an organization v/ere formed. He  pointed out that if they receive financial assistance from the government after forming the new organ-  such an organization must be a government official of tho department.  He agreed that Mrs. Watt Avho said  that they, as a neAV ' .organization,  should he in a position Lo say Just  Iioav their work Avas to be carried on  and Iioav the money was lo be spent.

It was pointed out in a discussion which foIloAved, that there  Avas a strict Uiav regarding contagious  diseases and (hat it Avas the fault of  (he community if it were not enforced.  II.

Certain it is, however, that the flaring up 0f the spirit  ' of organization lhat has gained  extra emphasis from .the'world  Avar,  ..will leave in its train one potent  influence that must, henceforth; he  reckoned with by all business inter-  ests./This significant heritage of the  social and commercial .-heritage is to  be found in the farmer's co-operative  marketing movement which, with all  ,duc respect, may ,be said to find its  most inLeresting exemplification in  North America. -It is an element to  be reckoned witlv by all makers and  marketers of goods.    ���������  _ Essentially, the farmers' co-operative marketing movement is "collective bargaining," pure and simple.  That is -what rends this neAv trend  to joint effort in barter'and sale so  important Lo all, men and \vomen of  affairs. Generally speaking, the- tillers of the soil in the Now World who  are joining hands show no disposition  to go to the extremes of syndicalism  in the Old World. Various organizations of farmers "and stock .raisers  have varying vIoavh as to tho-province  of the "new instrumentalities but, by  most retailers endeavoring  wares and ..L the same Lime sell    direct to lai'i.ir-is, perhaps a,  prices Liiat  thanks to spot ' cash    arm    quantity  purchase, are appreciably     less    than  .dealers have been wont Lo ask in the  individual  transaction  the manufacturer  in  direction;  is   the   consideration   that  a number of the proposals for    direct  purchase come from isolated farming-  communities- where the manufacturer  has no representation.    Furthermore  there is the lure of   prestige    to    be  attained if all Lhe farmers, in a community can, by tli'o joint'transaction,  be enrolled as consumers of a given  product.,  Ketailers, in communities where  the farmers have lined' up strongly  for joint purchase, face even greater,  perplexities than the manufacturers.  If a merchant is fortunate enough Lo  hold an exclusive agency for a, .line  for which the farmers in his district,  have strong preference ho may sua])  his fingers at oppressive collective  "bargaining.'A'id this,.,, by the by.  explains the higher estimate of appreciation that has come Lo be placed  on exclusive agency contracts. Similarly me merchant avIio has been wont  to "carry" his curtomers frovi ���������o'auL-  ing time to harvest, by selli.'ig goods  on lime, is not perturbed by schemes  'or join-, buying'for cash.   Hut.  aviIIi  o sell on  and large, there is no ambition to  ���������* abolish private ownership of property  or attempt other daring inovations.  Primarily, tho Impulse of the "get  together" movement among , North  American farmers is purely commercial, Avhich renders it all the more  interesting to captains of industry  and distribution. '    '  The aspect of the unrest among  the farmers most deeply Impressive  to manufacturing and merchandising  interests is that the latter-day disposition of Lhe agricultural cohorts  to indulge in collective bargaining,  coming and going, as the saying is.  In consequence, there are advertisers  and distributors avIio accepted, as a  perfectly natural and logical evolution, the trend to co-operative sale of.  farm products, but are deeply disturbed iioav that so many of. the  general and local organizations of  farmers show an inclination to go a  step farther and undertake the joint  purchase of all manner of commodities' Avithin the common need of the  farming community.  Here then Ave have two distinct  and contrasting but equally interesting angles of the-co-operative movement in-agriculture as it establishes  contact Avith the other 'forces of  business. On the one hand Ave have  co-operatiAre selling Avhich has  brought in its train co-operative advertising and collective trade-marking and notably in the case of food  products, has developed markets that  woujd not othei'Avise have been uncovered. On the other hand, avc have  ' co-operative buying which has manifested itself in a desire to purchase  direct from Lhe. manufacturers or at  least to gain the..benifit *of quantity  discounts and the lure of which lias  grown since the advance in transportation charges has rendered it especially advantageous to purchase in  carloLs.  Many   pages   of   Marketing   might  be devoted Lo a survey of the various  types and    classes    of    co-operative  organizations among the farmers and  to   enumeration   of   the   sundry   and  diverse activities  in  which  they arc  engaging Avith  more or less success.  Plainly,     however,    the    paramount  interest    of    the    everyday,    adviser  or seller, outside the pale of farmdou,  lies  not "in the structure of the cooperative organizations,    nor yet    in  the intimate details of the   co-operative program, but in Lhe present and  prospective  effect  of  this  iioav  influence upon business policy and practice. ���������    Therefore, attention Avill    be  concentrated on Avhat is, for a large  majority, Lhe most practical phase of  the subject.  In some quarters it Avas assumed  that the first effect of the leaning of  arganized farmers to co-operative buy  ing would be to sharpen the competition betAvcen the large mail-order  houses and the local retail merchants  who serve the retail trade. This  theory lias not been shown to bo avcII  founded. Some manufacturers avIio  sell direct, via their own mail-order  departments, may have gained a  larger share of farm Ira do but the  goods of Lhe large catalogue houses  are, supposedly, rather closely priced  and fi majority of such concerns have  been tumble or unwilling to shave  advertising unit prices as much as  the allied farmers have deemed to be  warranted by'-a. largo order.  Discounting, then, the effect oi  joint action by ��������� farmnrs upon the  business of the catalogue houses  carrying a general* line,'there in left  for analysis the influence upon mauu  facturers and upon retail merchants.  In both quarters avc behold impress  not manifest in the case of general  mail order houses, wholesalers or  jobbers. In the case of the manufacturer the new turn of affairs'has  brought, in many instances, strong  pressure for the sale of goods, in  quantity, direct to unions of consumers on the farms. Instinctively  the experienced manufacturer feel's  that ho cannot serve two masters.  As a. general proposition he cannot  l(ocp faith with the retail dealers avIio |  have  long given  distribution   to  his i  prosperity is '.-ontingciil ��������� upon ihe  maintenance of lhe established channels of distribution arc doing- their-  part to promote-dealer service.  'J ho reader will sense the fact that  yet," pulling.'this considf.ration of "service," as a'  tho    opposite 'most interesting 1'i.etoi* of tho new era.  of agricultural conditions, is Avithout  rclcrcnce to whetleror    not    dealer  service is "free service."    There is   a  Avide difference of opinion    on    (hat,  score, or rather a liversity of opinion'  as to    Avhat    amount    of    "service"  should' be given tc a purchaser ivith-  out charge.   A  progressive school of'  thought holds Lhat. all service    after  the. purchase and delivery of an, article should be charged for in accordance* with   a   consistent   schedule of"  prices.  It is insisted that, any'   other  system operates le place . a.    burden  upon  the,,   efficient,    intelligent farmer   who  perforn.s  his   own   service  but is called upon to pay his portion  of the outlay nec<jssitaled to aid the  less competent or    less    self-reliant  farmer.  But, as lias  been  said,  it is  not  felt that, the question of whether  service charges should    be    assessed  directly-or individually or should* be  incorporated in original, sale   prices  is one that lino more than incidental  j bearing upon the    question of    "service" its a    deterrent    of    collective  Duying.  The  imporla  with a large propor  Just as Avith  a goodly percentage of  -automobiles,    "service" is an important   consideration.     Statistics     just  compiled by the United States govern  !ment show that a    heavy    quoLa    of  farmers   are   demanding   "more   ser-  ratlier    than  mon;l:anl also as regards the  LhaL result from Ihe exhibition  demonstration  of goods,     fOven  iiuus  a lid  thu  intuits,  have .t   'SUispioioii  (('p'.n*ativc.   buying,     unless  coddled,   is  lionifi-'ial   el  'Users' good  that    coca reful ly  ,ouud  to  have  none too  feci,     upon     iin     adver-  wiil. On the    one  shorter credit and with Lhe farmers'  -organizations providing loans for  members on Joint responsibility, the  old-time factor of dealer accommodation is losing its potency.  What approximates Lhe proverbial  alternative of (he devil and the deep 'VjCe" as time-goes by,  sea is before tho relail merchant, who [jess SGrvice.-  faces the demand, now so common as  to be characteristic of rural co-operation practise, that he act as the  "agent" of Lhe mobilized purchasers.  Usually the co-operative organizations that approach retailers with  this proposition make a virtuous  sIioav of solicitude for the Avelfareof  their local merchants. It is declared i  that the amalgamated farmers have  no desire' to drive the storekeeper out  of business' but'demand is made that,  in the case of joint purchases where  the farmers are to pay cash and  undertake all the responsibilities of  delivery of the goods from the 1 ������cal  freight station, the retailor shall -?i *o  nis services and facilities for ,'i modest commission computed on i lie percentage basis. If he does not accept  the role of agent in'the big 'oopcru-  tive ..transactions, the local merchant  may see the lumped .orders go else-  Avhere and with them tho incidental  trade of members of the buying  combine in items not covered  joint   commitments. ,  It is Lhe plight of numerous retail. fyri^.������Lf ll^^"?."; wil1 "not  merchants in tho face of .the revolu-  tioncry influence'of co-operative buying by farmers Lhat is bringing about  that evolution and glorification of  ���������'dealer service," which constitutes  Lhe most conspicuous reaction of the j  business   world   lo  the  new  clement j the co-operative  . |sell at full retail prices.

It  is    this  /recognition of    the ' sales    stimulus,  afforded by a permanent., well-stocked store in contrast to spasmodic merchandising   from   a'make-shift0 base  ihat'impels many a   mauufaclurcr to-  be only hike-warm with, regard'   to  co-operative    buying    Avhereas      he  grants  discounts   that   recognize   the  advantage of dealers' stock orders.

As  has been' mentioned, the  1 effect of the creation of - the "large  combinations* of individual purchases  is to bring to bear upon many manufacturers unparalled' pressure to  sell direct. Meanwhile, retailers have  grown increasingly sensitive on the  subject, so that a manufacturer unless he be most careful and consistent  in his sales policy' may fall under-suspicion of the retailers and the retailers' associations that regard it as- no-  less a sin for the manufacturer to sell  to co-operative stores and corop.ra-  tive associations than to sell to* mailorder houses.  As the situation stands at present,  many manufacturers whose products  by | are consumed on'/the farms but who  i have abiding faith in'the time-tried  sell  Lo: co-operative 'stores or syndicate  of buyers. Other manufacturers do  not sec their way clear to discriminate so rigidly against    the    co-opera-  'tive institutions and will suply them  !on the understanding, however,  Lhat  establishment    will  in consumer    demand.

Prou- Just "ere, Lhat it is by this same  ablvno businessman avIio has looked; strategy that certain manuiacturers  closelv into the    situation     believes  sidestep the issue of selling direct. Lo  the manufacturer of a "full line" fa  ces the prospect that if he allOAvs cooperation buying to drive out of business any considerable share of the  independent-retailers he may.have to,  in oi*der,to save the day, turn around  and- establish his ' oavh stores or  branches-on the "Winchester plan"  or some other formula.  If the,large producers, with many  irons in-the fire, have, for-the reasons  just outlined, occasion to knit their  liroAvs over the complications of cooperative merchandising    the    same  must be said of small manufacturers'  and iioav entrants in the    advertising  field. There is. no getting away from  the fact that the inevitable influence  of co-operative buying is to standardize the, purchases.    In    order    that  there may be quantity    purchase, In  order  that  carlot shipments  may  be  .made, etc. it is    essential    that    the  rural buyers shall agree    upon _ one  make or model. And they    are    apt  to compromise upon a familiar brand,  hot because it is necessarily the best,  but because it is known by reputation  to most of the co-operators and    can  be accepted oir faith. Given a system  that requires a unanimous  vote and  'the   placing   of   orders    months    in  'advance, what chance has a new and '  untried product?

'The fanners appear  Lo be committed to joint merchandising, be.it a case of give or take.  Uut' what dealer's service is, by. its  champions1, counted upon to do, is  to preserve the rank and file of  "regular" dealers a proportion of the  trade of each communisy that will  enable (.hem Lo remain in business  and to obtain remuneration commensurate with I heir ability and efforts.  The interest in the trend of Lhe  agricultural population Lo joint purchase of the articles of un.'vors'il m*-*d  is intensified by the fact that a considerable proportion of the standard  items of farm equipment and f-'.rm  supplies arc not especially suited to  purchase at long range. This aspect  of the situation has been stressed,  morcver, in recent years' when the  farmers of North America are rapidly  "motorizing" their farms and resort  farmers, either individually or in  groups.-Producers avIio take this tack-  do not refuse absolutely to sell  ultimate consumers direct ' ut limy  make such sales only at Lhe full retail  price and with some firms it is a rule  that if Lhe house has a retail outlet  anywhere in the vicinity of the buyer,  the retail merchant is given credit for  tho sale. This manoeuvre of reluctant selling at retail and only at full  retail price enables a manufaci invito garner the trade that his national  advertising begets in territory Avhere  ho has no retail representation and  yet it saves him for the most part,  from the resentment of "regular'"  retail dealers. Some manufacturers  arc so solicitous that legitimate retailers shall have a square deal, (hat  Lhey follow the plan of making retroactive the payment of dealers' commissions.

His numbers are  not decreasing to any notable extent while his quality has ever an  upward, trend'. Breeding stations are  being established and every effort is  being made to maintain breed type.  Pasknieliewaii's success in winning  c'lauilJiunshii's  at   the   recent   fnier-  na'IOTial Slock show in Chicago is  an evidence of (he marked success  that has been met with in Canada,  i'lut the West is not alone in the  inarch of horse improvement and  development. Than the French-  Canadian horse there is probably no  breed thai, is more hardy or agriculturally useful. The French-Canadian Horse Breeders' Association  has long been in affiliation for record  purposes with ' the National Live  Stock 1,'ecord Board at Ottawa, and  in the last two years that Association  has turned over Lo the Dominion  Department, of Agriculture for  twenty years a farm of five hundred  acres at St!' .Joachim, Que., lo be  mainly, used for the breeding of its  particular type of horse.

It Avill be found to  pay Avell to look over the potatoes  from lime to time if-a winter's supply  has been stored and remove ' those  which show the disease or are rotting  so that,the others Avili not be affected It Avill not be long before the potatoes Avill begin to sprm.: and if :he  sprouts ?~re removed promptly the  tubers Avill remain in better condition than if they are allowed to  grow long.-It will ��������� e nocessarv to ������o  over them '.wo or th.v.3, times or  more before spring to remove sprouts.  If potatoes are in boz-'S it bins  where sprouts can be r-adiiy sot-n  'one is more likely to remove the  sprouts in good time t'-aii if they are  ' kept in bays.  { If onions are rotting, put them in  a drier place and spread out well..  j 'If carrots, beets, parsnips, and tur-  l n?ys are withering, a good plan is to  j in i hem in boxes and keep a damp  l bag* or piece of sacking over the top  i of the box. To keep Avell all these  j vegetables should, IiOAvever, be stored  whore it is cool,but. not very dry.  If cabbages are rotting, keep (he  heads apart so they will not touch  one another and so there will be a  good circulation of air about them.  While they should not be in a very  dry place, yet one that is fairly dry  is better than one that is inclined  to be damp particularly if it is  rather warm and not Avell ventilated.  They should be kept cool, but .will  noi stand many degrees of frost.  Squash  aid  pumpkin's if  kept  in  a cool place may have rotted by this  : time, but if they are still in good con-  idition they will keep much   longer u  iput in a room Avhere the temperature  jis  above  50   Fahr.  j     If celery has begun    to    rot;'   (he  ! plants should be all gone    over    and  ! diseased parts or plants removed, urTd  'when replanted see that the tops are  'kept  dry as. long as the plants last  and if there is room    have a    small  ; space between the top of each plant.  "To keep    celery in    good    condition  during the Avinter the tops should be  .-dry but the    roots    in     moist    soil.  hence if watering is necessary great  care should be taken not to wet the  : tops.  I     It is nol difficult for a    farmer to  care for his vegetables in Avinter as  he has, a*- a rule, a cool cellar, but  in cities cellars are usually too Avarm  , for most vegetables, hence Avhere the  I main cel'ar is Loo    Avarm    Avherever  I possible a part of it Avhere cool    air  ! can be almitted    should be    parlit-  j ioned off from the rest for a-vegetable roon.
