Mr. O. II. Rogers, of Lynne, one of

A. P. Spencer, of the farmers' co cooperative
operative cooperative demonstration work of the
University of Florida, is authority for
the statement that the corn crop of
Florida will this year aggregate fif fifteen
teen fifteen million bushels, as against eleven
million bushels last year. This, too,
is largely due to the good work dona
by the demonstration agents. Times Times-Union
Union Times-Union Short Talks.
The increase in this single crop will
probably pay all the expense, and a
great deal over, of that department
of the University since it was established.
The Times-Union rejoices over the
fact that the Mexicans backed out of
firing across the border as soon as
positive orders were given American
soldiers to fire in return, and says
that if President Wilson will issue a
positive warning to Great Britain to
stop interfering with our commerce,
the British lion will be as complais complaisant
ant complaisant as the Mexican buzzard. Possibly
the T.-U. is right we would like to
think it is, but Mexico is a small po potato

not sure that even Mexico is entirely
As will be seen by the report of
the city council meeting elsewhere,
the rate for electric current for light

cents to 6. The council has desired
to do this for some time, and has only
delayed the reduction because; it had
to have money for other purposes.
This gives Ocala one of the very low lowest
est lowest rates for electric current in the
country. A notch at a time, our mu municipal

the plant,' the people would be pay paying

Germany and Austria "are putting

tons Teutons will try to capture Paris and the

way to an invasion of England. It is
a tremendously big program and may
succeed, but the possibilities are that
it will not. The Teutons may and

unless the Russian resistance col collapses

only a short distance into their own

but if she does she will lose her west western

for the Teuton offensive in the west,
the French and British line will be as

once the Teutons come out of their

way against a much more powerful

The clause in the latest American
note, which says the United States
and Germany are contending for the
same principle, namely, freedom of
the seas, has caused some, uneasiness
to the government of Great Britain,
which sees in it a possibility that Am America
erica America and Germany may come to an
understanding if not an alliance, on

feeling is probably what has caused
Sir Edward Grey to withdraw the

and promise another in a few days.

When the steamer General Slocum
was burned in the East river by New
York a decade ago. there was a great
outburst of public indignation. The
captain was sent to the penitentiary,
but the owners, each one of whom
was more guilty than the captain,
were not interfered with. There was
an immediate revival of vigilance,
however, in regard to excursion boats,
and the public firmly believed that
such accidents would happen no more.
Now comes this even greater horror,
for the same reasons greed of the

owners and carelessness prooaoiy
corruption of the inspectors. The
men who kept the death-craft in ser

who is really guilty will ever be pun

their rights if they stood together

Did you ever stop to think of the power of co-operation of the strength men
have when they pull together?
Take the marketing of citrus fruit, for instance. It would he an impossible
thing for any one grower whose grove contains but a few acres to hire mm to
represent him in the leading markets. Even it would burden the growers of
one community or one county to employ such men in any consideraole number
of markets to look after the sale of their fruit.
Yet the growers of the entire State of Florida can engage competent salesmen
to look after their interests in every city of any size in the countrya t a cost of
only a very few cents a box on the fruit of any-of them. By getting together
in a truly co operative way, the citrus fruit producers market their crops them themselves
selves themselves instead of trusting to commission men and speculators
It is the same thing in the advertising of Florida fruit. Any one grower or any
single community of growers would find the cost of an adequate advertising
campaign to be prohibitive. But by getting together in the matter with the
growers of other communities in every .county of the State, a grove owner mqy
have his fruit advertised all over the country for only a few cents a box.
The Florida Citrus Exchange is a co-operative body. It is entirely controlled
and managed by the growers who are its members. Any director representing
them, on the local association board, the Sub-Exchange board or the central
board for the State, maV be recalled by the growers who elected him, at any
time they choose. There are no stockholders in the Exchange and there is no
possibility of profit on its operations to any individual except as he participates
in profitable marketing of his frut just as every other member may.
The most aggressive sales force of any in the citrus fruit field is maintained by
the Florida Citrus Exchange. Yet such is the power of co-operation that in the
past year the entire operating expenses for selling purposes was less than ten
cents a box. The Exchange conducts a nation-wide advertising campaign to
introduce Florida oranges and grapefruit to the consuming public yet such is
the power of co-operation that this advertising costs the individual citrus fruit
grower only three cents a box.
Last year the Florida Citrus Exchange shipped more than twice as much fruit
as any other marketing agency in the State. It shipped as much fruit as the
five largest other marketing agencies combined. So that a given amount per
box expended by the Exchange for selling or advertising does more than twice
as much work as the same number of cents charged by any other marketing
agency four or five times as much as the same sum expended by most others
Now is the time to join the Exchange and get full value for the money you pay
for selling your fruit.
