Each of the eight years has seen a larger company in volume and numbers, and stronger financially than Us preceding year. One hundred and two new stockholders were added this year. One and a half million gallons of merchandise were handled. The net profit is the largest in its history and the dividend is the largest in dollars ever paid. Our course thus far has been upward. It will continue that way if we have the' unswerving loyalty and patronage of our members. It can be torn to shreds overnight even by a few, if we let the horrible cancer of dissension, selfishness, internal friction, jealousy and gossip creep in. Let's avoid these by adopting a powerful program for boosting. It will cost us nothing and will mean dollars in every patron's poektt. J. P. STUDER, Sec'y.
