That is whv advertising is now  a highly specialized business.  The public are educated and  otherwise influenced to- buy  specific makes or brands of articles in preference to others by  advertising, which must, however, be backed up by a standard grade and quality that the  consumer will slay with because it can bc relied on as uniform at all times.  Can a single grower continue  to bold or create a special demand for his produce in thc  face of such competition or conditions as may be concentrated  against him at any moment or  would it bc better to co-operate  with a thousand or so of bis  In-other growers to establish a  standard"brand and slrong demand for same in many markets ?  Did you ever bear of a grower deliberately dumping or glutting his own market? Of what  ������������������ use is a high price on a starved  market to you if your stuff is  on a glutted market somewhere  else? Can a thousand or so  growrcrs or even a few small local organizations keep in touch  with each other sulTicicntly  closely that the distribution of  their produce will bc so even  that each market will have just  enough to keep the demand just  where you want it���������������������������at its maximum���������������������������or would it bc better to  co-operate and specialize on this  . work?'  Have vou ever had an idea  that lhc "distant buyer of your  goods bin (led you inlo acccpt-  ingHcss for your car than hc  would Jf you had been thcrc on  . the spot, by claiming it was not  np lo grade or similar excuse?  Can you afford to accompany  caclv of your cars lo ils final  des I inn lion or would it bc belter  "to" co-operate with your ���������������������������ncigh-  "bors and maintain'salaried rcp-  ."rcsciilalivcs at market centres  -whose only interest will bc to  sec lhat your "best interests arc  served by seeing lhat your province is sold on the right grade  and at thc right price?  ' Someone will say, "Wc admit that a big organization is  necessary to do these things but  it does not necessarily.ned to be  co-operative." In reply I havc  not claimed lhat all brainy, ethical men of fine character arc  confine! to co-operative movements. There arc men in business today, many of whom live  up lo a code of ethics lhat many  a so-called co-operator might  well-study lo advantage. No  race, seel, or syslcm has a monopoly of all straight-men, or  bad cither for thai mailer. The  son does nol always follow in  lhc footsteps of his father, nor  docs lhc new owner always  adont the method of the old.  ==*^Whal^guarai>lee^have****^youf-  and for how long, thai lhc private business of loday which is  giving vou a reasonably square  deal will not become tomorrow  a monopoly lhat will hold you  helpless in ils grasp and drive  you back until, wilh your back  againsl lhc wall, you havc lo  Jight I'or your very existence.  JXo, lhe co-opcralivc organization owned by the growers  and operated- by themselves is  Ihe correct and only solution.  Their chief aim must always bc  in the disposal lo best advantage of their own products, and  lhcir financial interests will always be in the same place, i.'c,  their farm. Can wc not do here  what farmers have done in almost every other coun try and  where tliey iui proving every  day lhat they can with proper  organization and understanding  among them selves, develop a  degree of business efficiency  and success that no other system can equal.

Year  after year, notwithstanding the  practice of crop rota lien'," thc effects of soil infection often become so pronounced as to cause  what is popularly known as  "soil sickness." One of thc most  notorious of these diseases is  clover and alfalfa wilt (Sclcro-  tinia) which has given rise to.  the belief lhat land may become  clover sick. This disease has  just begun to show up on the  continent of America, and unless * prompt precautionary  measures are taken there is a  possibility of the disease causing  similar losses to what it docs''in  Europe.  A disease similar in nature  attacks .beans, and .there, are  oilier instances which call .for a  word-of general advice on matters of prevention.
