The.tact remains however that ihe main weakness ot the farm er Is his inability to organize, for bo sides the fact (hat he fs a poor or j gauUer, the conditions with which he has to contend make the task moro difficult. We are firmly convinced tha if the .agricultural class is to achieve that .'are necessary to pir the- business on a standing that i deserves and must attain, this achieve- ment must be through our own c( forts and through the one road of organization. .This Is apparent in so many fields Squeeze the juice two lemons into a bottle containing, three ounces of orchard shake well, and you iiave a quarter pint of tbe best freckle and tan lotion and complexion beauti- fler, at very small cusL Your grpcer'-nns tbe lemons and any drag store or toilet counter will supply threo ounces 'of r orchard ;white for a few tftis sweetly frag- .rant lotion-Into the face ,necfe, arms and hands each day and see how freck- les and blemishes disappear and how clean, soft and white the skin becomes.

While it is nol good business, uur is it the predisposition of the west, (o be pessimistic, still there Is nothing to be gained by conceal iu g these facts from the public, many oC whom Know the situation already, while many others desire to kiiow it for business reasons. Should .copious raica come by July 15 everything would be chauged very much for the better. Aud, 'of course, no countr; can fee grotv a good crop. or even fair one, without rain.

Nevertheless the Alliance conceded Sunday delivery for that season up to the 1st of October. Tim coucessiou was refused. As to necessity the Al- liance contended that the Ontario eov- orament ruling of 1907 which required dlscoutl'.iuaiicp ot Sunday delivery and manufacture in cheese factories ap plied and supported this by citing the manager's statement that, with prop er care, Sunday's milk could be deliv- ered on Monday In good condition, the practice of tho company in accepting for some time Sunday's milk on Mon- day, and for D considerable period "the Sucday supply of patrons, represent was unanswerable.
