TERMS CASH W. L. Wli-SON, Auot,^ In order to raak� our mixed fanning propaganda a real and living succees one of the first problems we have to consider is the marketing of what we may 'terra the smaller products, i.e., the produce of the dairy, the poultry yard and the garden. The first essential to consider would be the rapid marketing of these products in the best possihle condition, direct from the producer to the consumer. Qome of our newcomers, and we shall have newcomers with us for many years to come, have had experience in certain lines which they can rapidly turn to account, provided the means of doing so is available. It is most important that these means should be available for it is out of the profits of the by-products of the farm that many a family might live in peace and plenty until the larger products had time to materialize, for being larger these take longer in coming into being. It is the small farmer and his wares that must be looked aftteT in the mixed farming line, and it is the small or smaller farmer that will flii up the country and make the country more prosperous. System will have to be evolved in the marketing of the smaller products to obtain the very best results, and this should lead us into co-operation, which is the very best method for handling the smaller products of the fa-rm and distributing them direct to consumers at the least possible cost and with the least possibte delay. Thif\ injures no one, for the general store or the country store would prefer to be relieved of the tourden of taking in produce in pay for its wares and taking the chances of getting rid oi them at a profit. Co-operation 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 packing so that it is most attractive, to the consiiiher. ' . To make our mixed farming pay we shall need at once the local market in our lai^ger towns and <;ltles, not only one market but city lot markets scattered about the different precincts under proper supervision where consumers can buy vegetables, fruit, butter, fresh cheese or what not, de-'livered by the producers fresh from the farms and sold at a moderate price in th^ best possible condition. We are behind in all these matters and too many of us are too proud to do our marketing ourselves, so use the telephones and pay accordingly. We should take some leaves out-of the books of other countries, becoming more thrifty and help, out the farmers by buying direct from them. Perhaps the greatest channel of all will be the Parcel Post or Parcel Express. � 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 flgured tiiat this parcel post has reduced the cost of shipping the small 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 our-s hut have abandoned it because they could' not get their produce from' the garden to the city consumer at a reasonable cost. Think'what 4i 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 copaumer. Hampers of fresh produce could be made up in the country and shipped by post direct to an,y house in town or city, arriving in first class condition in rapid time. This would be a great stimulus to development in many lines at present hardly toucihed. Besides which many. a city dweller is going without articles he or she would dearly love to have if 'they could be transported frorei 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 goin^ to waste in Alberta to make quite a difference in the general profit and loss account of the whole community and this is largely "brought about by poor marketing methods and the high cost of transportation not only in Alberta, but all over Canada. 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 tp the d'weller In the city, but would soon be a great source of profit to the farmer, inoreaflng the trade by leaps and bounds. Now 'this brings us to another matter that requires to be taken up by the farmer. The farmer, as' a general rule, is the one business man that does not spend any money to place his wares before his customers. The introduction of cheaper parcel post woulc* necessitate this and the method has "been in practice for sbm^ time by the breeder of pure-bred stock, poultry, fruit, etc. In the farming and country papers wq read nmnv advartisementa ot those 'vvhp specialize ia live stock and other lines, and they are aJlve to tue value of advertising. This also means they have t.o stand. anllzQ their products, so that the buyer can rely upon a steady supply of products of uniform qualltv. The United States auttiorlties are already making this possible m their parcel post operations by Introducing the C. 0. D. system. Just a post card sent to the city by the farmer and a package comes out C. 0, D.; Jiiat a card from the city dweller to the farme-r, and �ome fresh butter and eggs go into town C. 0. D. if the farmer sends in for a dozen yards of cheese cloth he knows that what he orders will come out; if the position is reversed, the city dweller would be just as sure what the toutter and eggs will be like when they arrive. This is Just what standardjzation of the farm product means, and" it should be just as reliable one way as the other. All that it needs is a complete change In our methods, rapid transit at a lower rate, cooperation and method in marketing, with standards for everything that we can all go by, Under 'the C. O. D. system, the farmer is pretty sure to get pay for his products and the city dweller who sends the money for some butter and eggs will get the butter and eggs. If the butter and eggs are bad, tlie farmer loses, the trade, if good he increases his business. 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 our disposal, but there is no good reason why the postal bank 'Should not be adjunct to the parcel post, and would develop with it as postal ibnnk cheques could be used in payment tor goods. Considerable i)ower has been left in the hands of the United States Postmaster-General, in order that he can amend conditions and make additions to 'the sen'vice In the interest of tlie public, it having been recognized that the making or lowering of rates and the changes in other lines are not legislative, but administrative functions. This saves a great deal" of time and rapidly helps to improve the system without submitting of little changes to parliamentarly procedure and consequent /delays. The development of business between the producer and consumer direct will depend a good deal upon the personal relations, estabiisihed. 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 so'me product. As it is necessary for the farmer to have a clientele in order to build himself up 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 himself more prosperous, and the country more prosperous, at the same time by rea-j] son of piis prosperity. The more money 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 cu'stomers. Or hampers of mixed products could be made up lor city dwellers and mailed. The parcel" post will not be called upon to handle large quantities, for 'the town dweller will want constant supplies of farm produce In small quantitieg and strictly fresh. As the btisiness, develops, rales will fall, 'the mailing of the smaller parcel will 4ld the development of the rural delivery, probably' making tills a : payhig proposition, where now It may he a loss,: and carrying it into every xbad and by-way as a paying proposition, where now It is limltied, and a doubtful quantity. The more we study the parcel post' and Its possibilities,; the greater the B'Ubjeot becomes. It. smoothes' out so many tangles', opens up so many new channels, and leads us on until we are in. danger oif being too enthusiastic. And the great advantage of The Wires All Carry The Same Message-**I Want Youhftvt got to nse some kind of salt on the tabic. 'Vou must use salt ia 2;aui cooking: aud bakiuff.

WINDSOR SAIfT ispureandfincand the system Is that it hurts no one, and will be doing something that has never been done before in this country. As was predicted by a few, the Introduction of the parcel post in greater volume at a lower rate has been such a gigantic success in the first three months of its being in the United States, that it has not only come to stay for all time, but will be increased by leaps and bounds until it embraces far more tlian it even does now. . The first three months of the parcel post service in the United States Slave d/tmomstrated that the rates might be cut in half, and It would still pay, and the size of the parcel can be increased far above the eleven pounds. In conclusion, let me say that it is my opinion that if the average farmer would work to a comnaon end, and in the same manner as the breeder of pure bred poultry, the breeder of high-ciass milk cattle, Clyde horses, pure-bred sheep, or pigs, or what not, and work along the lines of having a stajidard to work up to, and place standard articlts on the market in good shape, there would be less complaint about finding markets and low prices. We require uniform quantities of uniform quality In �sufficient quantity to build up regular markets, and obtain the beat prices. And if such products were available in any sort of regularity at town or city local markets, or on farms where they could be shipped by parcel post these products would sell.
