It is interesting to note that ap-

childhood, being more frequent 1n

It is more common in males than
in females and occurs more frequent-

seasons. It is a disease met offen

The Key to Better Business
LIFE IS A GIVE AND TAKE PROPOSITION
@ ARE ESSENTIAL
Equal Responsibility for Their
Support Rests Upun the
Farmers and Merchants,
MUST ASSIST EACH OTHER
Prosperity of Community Depends
Upon Each of These Two Classes
Buying Products and Goods
of Each Other.
(Copyright, 1917, Western Newspaper Union.)
The first essendal in the develop-
ment of any business is the possession
‘of a market. The manufacturer must
have a market for his products or he
cannot succeed, no matter how valu-
able those products may be or how
efficiently his plant may be operated.
The wholesale merchant and the re-
tail merchant may have the choicest
stocks of goods, but they may as well
go out of business if they have not a
market where they can dispose of their
stocks. The farmer may produce
bumper crops, but they will rot upon
the ground if he cannot find a market
for them. The wage earner’s skill and
muscle bring him no returns unless
there is a market for his labor.
The question of markets is the big
one in every line of business and in
every community the question is a
vital one. In each community, which
must be taken to include not only all
the people who live in the town but
the farmers who live in the surround-
country as well, there are two
| sides to the market question. The busl-
| ness men of the town must have a
market for the things which they have
Otherwise they cannot con-
tinue in business. At the same time
the farmers must have a market for
‘the things which they raise or they
‘may as well go out of business.
When Either Falls Both Suffer.
The merchants of the town can pre-
ride a market for the products of the
farmers and the farmers can provide
a market for the goods which the mer-
chant ve to sell. As. long as each
class of citizens provides a market for
the other class all is well and the goose,
hangs high, but when either class fails.
to provide a market for the other the
goose is cooked, not only for the class
which is deprived of the market but
for the other as well.
The farmer has a right to expect the
town which is his natural trading point
to provide a market for his products,
and the town is not performing its
of its community if it does not sce
that such a market is provided. The
responsibility of looking after the ful-
fillment of this obligation rests largely
upon the merchants of the town. The
farmer is a producer and he must dis-
pose of his products before he can be-
come a consumer. It is, therefore, not
only rigl.t but necessary from a busi-
ness standpoint that the merchants
should aid the farmer in turning his
products into money. Otherwise the
farmer naturally will have no money
to spend in the stores of the town.
Obligation on Farmers.
On the other hand, the merchants of
the town have a right to expect the
farmers to provide a market for the
‘merchandise which they have to sell,
and the farmers are not doing thelr
duty to their community if they do not
provide such a market. In this case,
also, it is not only right but it is nec-
essary to the prosperity of the farmers
that they should aid the merchants in
turning their merchandise into cash.
Otherwise it is obvious that the mer-
chants will have no money with which
to buy the products of the farmers.
This is a double-barreled proposition
and the obligation rests equally upon
both the merchants and the farmers to
maintain the markets which are essen-
tial to both classes of citizens. Any
town which would import from points
hundreds of miles distant the farm
products which it could buy at home
would be pursuing a very short-sighted
policy, for it would be making it im-
possible for the farmers in its terri- '
tory to buy the goods of its mer-
chants. As a matter of fact no town
does this unless it is forced by unusual
conditions to do so. A town may be
located in a community which is not
productive enough to meet the local
demands, and in that case it is forced
to import farm products but the town
which is compelled to do this is at
a disadvantage from a commercial
standpoint unless it is essentially a
manufacturing town, in which case its
products are sold to other communi-
ties and bring in enough cash’ to offset
that which is sent away to purchase
