H'c says that the farmers are being aai'ed to sign a petition for a cold storage and packing plant, and he wants to know what benefit this would he to tlic {armtr when the wholesalers will not buy the products for storage ftUd packing. Our friend should come to Loth-bridge a.md talk it over with the wholesalers. Ono of them, said to the Herald this afternoon: "Wo aro i-n-structed to buy everything that the farmer has to offer, namely, butter, eggs, hogs, sheep, poultry, cattle and chickens, and to pay tiie market price for everything. These commodities caimot be brought in too fast, and. the market here is never overorow'dedi" ; ' ;;During the conversation a home-sfcoader came in. He had 40 head ot hogs for sale, whicli he ottered to the �r'nanager o/ the wholesale concern.. The manager said ; "Why of course we'll buy your hogs, and' will, give you J0_4c. per Ih. for thorn, it -they are the o-right sort. H-ave you got anv chickens or turkyvs, or butter or eggs or other live stockTlie, homesteader said he had,-and the result was that a siJecial buyer is to make a" trip to that section of country at once, aud buy up all this stuff. � If'a' farmer places his produce -oji tlie market in first class condition be will' get the top pr\ce every .timeand will never want for a market.
