That j.ood roads are closely related to prosperity there is uo question of doubt. Only a few years ago this section ef Virginia had but one macadam road, one creamery, which went to the wall, and a mere handful of pure-bred dairy cattle, writes C. C. Conger. Jr.. of Virginia in the Practical Farmei. One not familiar with the many blessings good roads bring about might wonder in what way good roads would affect creameries and purebred en vs. l-et n-j take, for instance, Koek'ngham county, and see just what good roads did in this sec tion in the dairy business alone, to say nothing of the prosperity good roads brought about in various other ways. Previous to our good roads the one creamery did some business during the summer mouths, when the dirt roads were at their l st, but business dwindled to nothing during the winter mouths because farmers could not get over the roads to deliver their milk. The creamery finally closed down for the lack of milk. About tins time a mere handful of progressive farmers began a movement for better roads, calling a meeting at a little village centrally located in the county. The attendance was good, and a great deul of "good roads" cnthuiani wa aroused. It was the tirst step in better roads that gained impetus by leap-and bounds. Tda. in a few short years, we be a network of fine mae-adam roads throughout the entire county. Following good roads came creameries. They sprang up over nigTi like mushrooms, till today the county is dotted with creameries, the sight of which does not look much like closing down for the lack of milk, particularly during the early hours of the day, when auto trucks are pouring in from the country, bringing milk from every nook and corner of the county. lure-bred cows came with the creameries, till today scrub stock no longer dominates our farms. Ask any farmer why he disposed of his scrub cows, replacing them with pure breds. and he will tell you the creameries did it. Stretch of Hard Surface Road in Virginia. Ask him what brought the creameries, and he will tell you better roads. While milk has slumped somewhat at times In this section, it has never halted the dairy business, and farmers are now reporting fair profits in dairying. The wealth that good roads has brought to this section in dairying alone Is astonishing. We are striving for more wealth and prosperity by building still more good roads. Experience has taught us that good roads, wealth and prosperity go hand In hand. ROAD MARKERS AID TOURISTS Trunk Highways Designated by Num. ber to Correspond With One on Official Map. Since the adoption of a standardized system of highway markers by the state of Wisconsin, five other states and England have followed the model plan. Each of the state trunk highways is designated by number to correspond to the number on the official road map. Markers have been placed at close Intervals carrying the number shown on the map, making it easy for the tourist to reach the most remote Tillages In the state. J4 ry vr - 5 cient volume of business, observing true co-operative principles, employing capable management, having thoroughly modern business methods, and finally, loyal membership." Steady Growth Tends to Success. Men who have traveled in every part of the United States observing the work of co-operative organizations of various kinds, believe that the success cf widespread co-operative marketing may be endangered through a poorly conceived hope or expectation that a hard and fast organization of producers will make it possilJe to sell anything and everything at a predetermined price without regard to quality or conditions. This Is a dangerous attitude to assume. ilen who have given close attention to the subject declare that there is a MPread feeling that it is possible to revolutionize completely the entire system of marketing and attain sue cess from the outset. This, of course, j is impossible because it Is necessary j to build upon a solid foundation and ' to work out the many problems involved carefully. Steady, substantial and healthy growth tends to permanency and success. No one should believe that because be is a member of a certain co-operative association, unusual prices are assured. TO INSURE HEALTHY CALVES If Cow Does Not Receive Abundance of Palatable Feed, Weak, Puny Calf Results. Poorly nourished cows give birth to weak, puny calves which are hard to raise. The feeding of the calf, therefore, begins before It is born. The food elements necessary for the development of the calf are taken Into the stomach of the cow, digested, assiml- j lated and transmitted to the calf through the umbilical cord, the connection between the mother and the calf. It is evident that if the cow does not receive food enough to keep herself in thrifty condition and at the same time develop her calf, say specialists of the United States Department of Agriculture, both she and the calf must suffer. Iu endeavoring to raise good, thrifty calves many dairymen handicap themselves at the start by not properly feeding the pregnant cows. Such cows should have an abundance of palatable and succulent or juicy feed in order to insure good body flesh and healthy, thrifty condition at calving time. The calves will then be well developed, strong and sturdy, and ready to respond normally to proper feed and care. eliminate wheat dtseases, it Is possible to reduce the toll much below what It has been In recent years, says the department. One branch of the work of the office of cereal investigations In the bureau of plant Industry Is to work out the preventive and control measures for the diseases of nil cereal crops. Another branch of the work of this office, which Is of equal importance in increasing production of cereal crops, is the development and introduction of superior varieties of grain which produce higher yields in localities where they are especially well adapted, or which have disease-resistant, qualities. This work is carried on In co-operation with the various state experiment stations, and in many cases has made profitable farming possible In sections In which agriculture was hazardous previous to the Introduction of new crops or varieties particularly well suited to local conditions. It Is not necessary to build expensive poultry houses, but they should be serviceable, fairly roomy, well lighted, and well ventilated without drafts. Prt-pared by the tTnited States Depart-ment of Asxiculture. Specialists in the United States Department of Agriculture urge constantly the establishing of uniform standard for farm product?, and declare tht if these standards are maintained, once they have been adopted, the confidence of the public wUl be established, and the success of co-operative marketing more generally assured. Too many organizations are br'"t:cht into beimr as a result of enthus'asm created by appeals o prejudice and by misconception. The proper foundation, is through a w ell-recognized need for an organization. "Co-operative principle," said a cooperative specialist of the bureau of markets, must be adhered to in the organization and operation of fann- ers' marketing associations. The j farmers themselves cannot be expect-I ed to have a vital interest in a mar- Keimg organization operated ior me V6t of antl controlled by a few per- sons. Such an organization should be f perated, of course, to effect savings and to render service and not to earn profits for distribution as dividends on money invested. A fair rate of inter-' est is granted to the capital invested by the members, and the remainder of any surplus to be distributed should be divided in accordance with patron- age, that is, the amount of business transacted with the organization. Lcyalty Is Essential. "The membership should be open to producers only who desire to avail themselves of Its facilities, and there should be safeguards to prevent the ownership and control of the enter- prise from falling into the hands of a few persons. The success of the entire effort depends upon the loyalty of the members and their interest in the organization, the h!gh standards they maintain; and their distinct under-; standing that as a business association it should be managed by a man or men able to earn a dignified com-! pensation. Disloyalty has cau-od the failure of more than one co-operative organization, and it is a veakness which can be remedied cnlv by the members themselves. "The manager, of cours.-. Is the keystone supporting the business. The salary offered him should attract ! igh-' class ability as in any business 'oofc- ing to success, and he should h:.o authority to support his work. An entire business can be ruined by an incompetent manager at its head.
