Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 25, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta / Friday, April 25,1913 THE LETHBRIBGE DAILY HERALD Page 5 r � . - MARKETING OF SMALLER PRODUCTS OF THE FARM (Paper read by E. N. DiirkoP, Cardston at Mixed Farming Convention) eREHM You will find it a, great satisfaction to do More Home Baking You will make biscuit, cake and pastry clean, fresh and tasty-better every way r than the ready made foods. Dr. Price^s Baking Powder is specially devised for borne use, and makes borne baking easy and a delight It will pro^ tect you from the dread alum baking powders, which are too frequently found in the ready made articles, and insure you food of the highest healtbfulness. In ovdor to makio our mixed farming propaganda a real and living biiccgbb one ot Uui flvflt prohlemH we havo to constdor \n tho marketing of what wfl may'term the Bmallcr productB, I.e., the produco of the dairy, tlu> poultry yard and tho. gardon. systf'm, the farmer Is pretty sure to jiot pay for his products and the riiy dweller who sends the money for some butter and I the system Ik that It hurts no one, and will be doing Koniethlng that has never been done before la Mils cnnn-try.

In conclusion, let me say that it iB my oi)InIon that if the aviuage farmer would work to a common rnd, and In the same manner as the breedor of pure bred poultry, the breeder of high-class milk cattle, (Jiyde hor.^es, pure-bred sheep, or pigs, or v.hat not. and work along the lines of having a fttajidard to work up to, and jdaee standard articles on the marltet in good shape, there would be less complaint about finding markets and low prices. We reuuire uniform quantifies of uniform (luallty In -sufflcleut quantity to build up regular markets, and obtain the best prices. And If such products were available In any sort of regularity at town or city local markets, or on farms wliere they could be shipped by parcel jjost these products would sell.

Thir injurea no one, for the general store or the country store would prefer to be relieved of the burden of taking In produce In pay for Its wares and taking the chances of getting rid 01? them at a profit. Co-oporatlon could also take care of advanced marketing; and prevent congestion. Besides this the Co-operative method enables the standardizing of the produce, the sorting of It and proper This later will lead us up to greater postal banking facilities, but this is too great a subject to take hold of now in the short time at nur dist)0sal, but there is no good reason why the postal bank should not he adjunct to the parcel post, and would develop with it as postal *bnnk cberiues could be used in payment for goods. Considerable power has been left In the hands of the United States Postmaster-General, in order that he can amend conditions and make additions to the fie*rvlce In the interest of the public, it having been recognized that the making or lowering of rates and LEGISLAIURE W ADJOURN MEANWHILE COMMITTEE WILL INVESTIGATE CHARGES AGAINST WHITNEY AND HANNA committee member, together with Samuel Clark, of Northumberland, Thn new cippositlon appolniees were Messrs. filliott.

Perhaps the greatest channel of all will be the Parcel Post or Parcel Kx-press. This parcel post has been growing by leaps and bounds In the United States since it was inaugurated on the first of .Tanuary. It is figured that this parcel poet has reduced the cost of shipping the s-mall parcel by one-third to one-half. Think what this means, Just stop and consider that there are men, and good men, who have tried truck farming in this Southern Alberta of ours but have abandoned it because they could not get their produce frora the garden to the city consumer at a reasonable cost. Think what iv check this is to out development. The development of the parcel post means the bringing together into direct communication the farmer or gardner and the copsumer. Hampers of fresh produce could be made up In the country and shipped by post direct to any house iu tow-n or city, arriving In first class condition In rapid time. This would be a great stimulus to development in many lines at pxe-sent hardly touched. Besides which many a city dweller Is going without articles he or she would dearly love to have If they could be transported from the farm at a cost that would make them available. The greatest trouble with om' present system, or want of system, Is the waste of it all, for there is, as a rule enough going to waste In Alberta to CREATING NEW POSITIONS Ottawa, April 24.-Hon. Robert Rogers tonight gave notice of a resolution, providing that it is expedient to Incorporate the National Gallerj' of Canada, and to transfer its pfro-porty to and vest it in a board of irusteea for tho government, this board to be authorized to purchase pictures, statuary, works' of art, etc., and to bo remunerated.

This saves a great deal of time and rapidly helpK to improve the system without submitJing of little changes to parllamentarly procedure and consequent delays. The development of business between the producer and consumer direct will depend a good deal upon the personal relations established. This has been a great factor In the development of the business of raising and selling of pure-bred stock, and those who have followed that game know-that it Is by satisfaction given and guaranteed that customers are added to the list, and the satisfied customers are the best advertisers for the seller. Customers satisfied 'are also constantly coming back for some more of the same product. As it Is necessary for the farmer to have a clientele In order to build himself tip as a mixed farmer, it is up to all of us to try and help him to means by which he can build up this clientele, improve his products Improve the prices he obtains for his best wares, and make hlms^elf more prosperous, and tho country more prosperous, at the same time by reason of his prosperity. The more n.oney the farmer has to spend the better for the town and city. Depots will have to be erected in our smaller towns in charge of co-operative institutions, where eggs could be collected and such like farm produce, sorted, repacked and mailed to customers. Or hampers of mixed products could be made up for city dwellers and mailed. The parcel post will not be called upon to handle large ((uantities, for the town dweller will want constant supplies of farm produce In small quantities and strictly fresh. As the btislness develops, rates will fall, the malilng of tho smaller parcel will aid the development of the rural delivery, probably making this a paying proposition, where now it may be a loss, and carrying it into every road and by-way as a paying proposition, where now it is limited, and a doubtful quantity. The more we study tho parcel post and its posBlbiUtles, the greater the subject becomes. It. smoothes out so many tangles, opens up so 'many Toronto.

If the city dweller could order a pair of dressed fowls or a dozen eggs from a farmer friend, to be sent at once by post at a cheap rate, it would not only be a great convenience to the dweller In tho city, but would soon bo a great source of prolit to the farmer, increasing the trade by leaps and bounds. Now this brings us to another matter that requires to be taken up by the farmer. Tho farmer, as a gen-' oral rule, is tho one business man that does not spend any money to place his wares before his customers.
