Daniel Morgan, banker and landowner of Spokane, where the convention was hold laai year, states that the extra increiiso this year, because of dry-farming, methods, of the agriculturnl products hi Wiishington, flguren up to ?ri,O00,0OO. Worth while working tor And It;;it-did'tjiat much>for Waahlng-lon it' wlJl" do twice' or three tinioa as ni'uCH tor California. In the plat form of the Dry-Parniins Congress goes a co-operdllon-atandardlzatlon plank, at its next (?ouventlbn, October 21-3C, at Lethbridge, Canada. What does co-operailon-Bta.ndardji'.a-tlon mean to the Calircrnla fruit growers? Head the ""Worid's Work" for June and see how the Tonitown farmers, when refusing RO cents per barrel tor their apples at the orchard, turned around, co-oporaitcd and standardized and jis a result got $C.0O per barrel for every barrel picked, in gross .returns. Crilt-edged apples only packed and sold at a premium, a la Hood lltver; then canning, nuder co-opera-tiou; then drying, under co-operation; then cider, under co-operation, and then vinegar, under co-operation. The number of picked barrels froifi the orchard divided into the relurng gave |(i.00 per barrel. That idea crystallz-ed .in every county in Callfomin, does that mean ?l,00O,O00 or $10,000,000 ad-ditiouHl revenue fo cur fruit growers when applied to all the fruits? Does It enable them to profitably send only the gilt-edged fruits east? Dees co-cperatlon-standardization mean anything to California, The coming of the convention to Lbs AngoloB In 1913-1!)14 means that yery thing for Calltornia. It Is worth while to the counties in tho state, every one of them, for the farmers and fruit gTowers to "dl.i; flown into their Jeans" for a 26 or 50-ecjit piece, and "chip in'' on a delegate's expenses? 1 think It Is. There's no tlmeito lose, hot a moment, and every farmer in the state should si-lip and take notice and get busy, for tho Letlibrldge convention Is lessiihan a mouth off. , 1 It all hangs on a good delegation feoing up, for if no interest is shown iiy California, no convention can be jnducod to come. So 'It's to get busy and get husy at once. Don't wait a mlnuto. Hold ;i meeting, select your best talker and the mcst practical and euccesBful man In tho county; pass urounii the hat, hand him a purse of ^100 and God-apeed him to Letlibridge to "bring homo HAY'8 HAIR HEALTH K;\'| 'sY )> I I 1 .1 Ill' '.V S!.m ud SOc ot receipt ol price aed___ Ifiil botlit.-i'Mia Hw said: "We own eighty aeires^of cdal mine.

IS ROOSEVELT SANE (Toronto Saturday Night) The San Francisco Argonaut, �. journal which repreaenta the beat . of American theught, and ia non-.. partizan.and without political,bias . commenting upon Theodore Rooae velt's aingular conduct at Port- , land, Oregon, during hit abort � stay there some two weeks ago, remarks that there appoara unfortunately to be but one explanation, and that is the one put forward acme time ago by Or. Allan .McLane Hamilton, the celobratad alicniat, who declares that Hoot^ velt is a pronounced paranoiac- that Is one in whom vanity, love of .applause, and an exaggerated estimate of his own virtue and power have destroyed normal sensibilitiea. Or, in other words, to put it bluntly, the man ia crazy. The Argonaut says that; withal this is the kindest jtidg-ment that can be passed upon one who acted as did Mr. Rooaevalt during hia stay in Portland. And this la the man who will, if he can place himaeif in the chair of the chief executive of a great nation. Some of the world's rulera have gone crazy during their tenure of office, but few have been crazy when they took over the rtlns. His election would, to say, the least, be an intereating development in thf hiflory ot the'ijreat republic, 1 ^^^^^ RANGE controlled. That's why it is such a marvelous fuel-saver and so popular with thrifty housewives. ^ For Sale by f STAFFORDAONEW CO;-^ ;
