T How a Yankee Woman Looks Up- on Farming In Trxas. Farming here is like a man who is educated to be a mechanic u;> North. He knows naught else but mechanism. Hence,when he gets out of a job with no money or friends, he turns his back on the locality of his misfortune and starts to the land of Dixie, where the warm hospitable skies. will shelter him from the biting sleets and snows. Tins is not all. The Yankee is a thrifty industrious man, who will not tolerate idle- ness and so Mr. Tramp is put out on a rock pile to work for the wherewith to keep soul and body together. As soon as he gets an opportunity he marches on to Dixie It should be the purpose of every free man to own a house. If he is not able to own a stately mansion he can own at least ten acres of soil and erect thereon an humble cottage and have a morn- ing glory across one corner of it, a few old-fashioned hollyhocks, flags and buttercups and daisies in one corner of the yard. This is a start toward liberty. The rea...

J - /> j A Farmer's Daughter. If you will allow me space, I will say a few words, as I am one of the press committe of our union, No. 2972. We met Satur- day ^id held an all day meeting. We areo enjoyed a delicious din- ner prepared by a few of our la- dy members. Different members of our union furnish dinner on each third Saturday, a plan our local has adopted, and I think it is a real nice plan, for what is more enjoyable than to spend a day with our neighbors and talk of business matters in general? If we are farmers, farmers' wives and daughters, let's be genuine "country" folks and be social and help each other, and in so doing you help each other to be loyal. I am a farmer's daughter, although my father, C. E. Roberts, is a farmer and stockman by trade, he devotes most of his time to the cause of the Farmers' Union. He is an organizer, and is away from home most of the time. While now he doesn't spend much of his time doing the farm work, he is out in the field working for ...

1 I V What is the Dairy Cow? The dairy cow is the cow, that under favorable surroundings and with a sufficient amount of the proper kind of food, will pro- duce a reasonable profit on her value after paying for feed and care. Any cow that will not do this should not be classed as a dairy cow. no matter what her breed. In the selection of a typical dairy cow, a few points might be observed that would serve the buyer well. First, she should be reasonably young and have the appearance of health. Second, she should have a reasonably large udder full before and be* hind, with plenty of room for ex- pansion, with medium sized, well placed teats, far enough apart to allow free movements of the hands and fingers without inter- fering with each other; her udder should be free from flesh and capable of a large expansion. Third, the milk veins should be large and kinked and should en- ter the bod y well at the front with a large well or passage for the vein into the body. Fourth, she should ha...

The various local Unions in Mississippi County, Arkansas, met March 5, and organized a County Union. The following of- ficers were elected: Joe Lynch, president; F. D. Robertson, vice- president; W. D. Pierce, Secreta- ry-treasurer; James Craig Coun- ty lecturer. Other officers were elected, after which we listened to a very interesting talk made by brother H. *B. Levels of Black- ton. The meeting adjourned to meet with Blytheville, May 26th. We have some wide awake Un- ion men in our county and we are doing business. Our local was organized less than a year ago. I joined and was made sec- retary-treasurer. I was green as to my duty and realized the ,needofhelp. I sent a dollar and got the great helper—The Na- tional Co-Operator—which helps me prepare a good lecture for my local every meeting. The Co- Operator is the best educator the Union has, and 1 would suggest that eve...

The lack of opportunity has kept many a ooor worthy bov in the background of obscurity with his nose to the grindstone through life. Many years ago I knew a family of boys who had been brought ud in the brush be- yond the pale of society, till they were about grown. Undoubted- ly they were seemingly about the greenest specimens of the cop- peras breeches type I ever saw. As an illustration of their su- preme gawkishness I will relate that upon an occasion when they were permitted to visit the town church afoot one warm Sunday, one of them upon entering the door made a bee line double quick down the aisle for the pul- pit while the minister was read- ing bis text to the congregation, and "yanked" the minister's glass of water from the stand and gulped it down at about three swallows. Not satisfied he hand- ed the glass to the preacher, say- ing, "Gimme mo." His request was granted and d...

THE FARJIGRS' UNION A QRAND ORGANIZATION. Some Impressions Made on Union Men by Non-Union Men. From Uuton New*, Oh.] Mr. Editor:—Will you allow a short space in the columns of your valuable paper from an out- sider's standpoint? Believing that the F, E. and C. U. of A. has come to take the place and do the work of the grand old institution known as the Farmers' Alliance, or rather finish the work it un- dertook to do, and correct the mistakes made by the Alliance where necessarvi I believe that the Union men of Georgia and other states should be very care- ful how they act or who they take in, for fear they make the man that has not yet taken part. Some may say you do not be- long and do not know anything about it. Granting that as true, but I think I do know the inten- tion of the order, and, not criti- cizing anybody, but "a stitch in time saves nine." That being true, then I think we should be willing to accept anything we know to be right. Feeling the need of the Union as I do, ...

If our farmers column is not as good as you think it should be suppose you chip in and make it better. A good practical farmer is sure to know something which, if told will benefit his neighbor. Usually the man that knows things has no trouble in telling what he knows, and then he stops talking. Men that really know little, or nothing, talk long, try- ing to tell something they don't know. Farmers' Institutes are good schools for both old and young farmers, but they don't come your way but once a year, while our Farmers' Union column vis- its you each week—that is, if you subscribe for the right paper.

T W ^ I ' I A Warehouse Proposition for the Farmers' Union. Editor Co-Operator: As the president of The South- ern Warehouse and Storage Co., I desire a word with the mem- bers of the Union interested in cotton culture. As many of your readers are already advised, the company I represent has received the endorsement of the National Executive Committee of the Un- ion on its proposition to receive cotton at its warehouses, issue warehouse receipts therefor which are negotiable, and ad- vance two-thirds of the value of the cotton to the owner if he de- sires, at the rate of six per cent per annum, making an endorse- ment on the receipt of the ad- vancement and then to hold, at the Company's risk, all cotton so stored until the price fixed by the Union is realized, the Union to have the right through its ex- ecutive committee to increase or reduce that price at its pleasure, the Company to charge the low- est rates possible for warehous- ing. At a glance you can see that such a method w...

The Need of a Rochdale Co-Oper- ative Company Owned and Controlled by You and Your Neighbor. Have you one in your commun- ity? If not, why not? Give a reason. There are now about seventy Rochdale stores in the state of California, federated in their own wholesale store of San Francisco. The movement was begun in California about six years afro by a small concern in Dos Palos whose original capital was $24. It is now a successful commercial enterprise doing an annual busi- ness of over $50,000, and has never failed of its annual interest and dividends. Another Rochdale company in the same valley does a business of more than $100,000 yearly, and in two years paid its members in interest and dividends more than three-fourths of the amount of the original cash capital. There are now eleven Rochdales stores in that one valley. Four new companies have been organized within the past three months, and inquiries are daily coming from all parts of the state. Get a move on and get in line. Don...

Editor Co-Operator: Dear Sir and Bro. - You know I am not much of a fellow to go to the press with our business, but it is very necessary some- times. I had rather read the ' communications from the good brothers, but I feel like, at this time, I might say something that might be of interest to the farm- ers. The time for action is now. Will we act? I believe we will. After meeting with the spinners and learning of them what they wanted us farmers to do that we might sell our cotton direct to them, I believe we will act. They said that we, as farmers, raise our cotton to sell, and, if we wanted to sell direct to them, we must put our cotton in good condition, keep it dry and ar- range our finances so that we could furnish them the quantity and quality of cotton that they would want and at the time they would want it; we migh...

Coat of Cotton aod It* Selling Price. There is at present a great deal being said about the cost of rais- ing cotton. This is a question of merit and should be clearly understood by every man that raises this product. If a man engaged in raising stock he counts the cost, if in merchandising he keeps a correct expense account; then why not the cotton rais- er? There are a few people telling us that it can be raised at from 5c to 8c, but these farmers raise their cotton on paper. The thing that we want to know is what does it cost to raise cotton from the soil? We would like to have every farmers that reads this to write us what it cost him to raise cotton. We ask every local and county Union to take this question up and discuss it fully, and name a price at which they think this crop should sell, and mail same to me before August 1st. I will compile these votes and furnish same to committee, and from them they can take the average. This will put the minimum price where it should be, ...

I m D D Vol. 2. MINEOLA, TEXAS. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 1, 1906. THE NEW YORK AND OTHER COTTON EXCHANGES The fundamental principle governing the market in all corn- mod ies is the law of supply and demand when legitimate trading is carried on in actual things. It is a known fact that when the 'offerings of any commodities are unduly and abnormally pressed upon any market, the takers will necessarily shrink from the bur- den thrown upon them, and pric- es will thereby recede in propor- tion to the enormity of such offerings. This principle at cer- tain periods and under proper conditions is seized upon by the members and allies of these large exchanges; thev being well or- ganized and governed bv rules and by-laws of which the out- siders know nothing, and all trades made m such exchanges by outsiders, are compelled, to be made through some member holding seats in the exchange. Consequently the outsider^ who are composed of many honest and legitimate dealers, can have no knowledge of the c...
