The onion question is a rather
strong one, but the price has been a
rather weak one.
The result of the efforts of the
growers in this neighborhood to ship
their own onions is not yet definitely
known as returns for the last cars
have not yet been received.
There is no doubt but that if the
farmers would organize properly
that they could save much money in
marketing their crops. The peach
growers of Georgia have saved hundreds of thousands of dollars in selling their crop.
The time for organization is now,
so that the organization may be on a
business basis for next season's crops.
Three classes will be enemies to a
farmers organization. First: The
shyster and dishonest commission
men who like cormorants have sucked the life out of the farmers for
years. Second: Dishonest, designing and incompetent men who will
seek positions as manager, agent,
etc. Third: The dishonest member
of the association who for the love of
money will pack his products dishonestly and thereby injure the sale
of the products of the association as
a whole. The big task of an organization will be to protect itself
against these classes.
Don't go at an organization too
rapidly, but by beginning now move
slowly and surely and make as perfect an organisation as possible,
safeguarding ejrery interest.

House of Robert Stout Last Thursday
On last Thursday morning at 2
o'clock Mr. Robert Stout, a well
known farmer living about three
miles east of Jeffersontown, had a
thrilling experience with a burglar.
He was awaked from his sleep and on
opening his eyes beheld a negro
kneeling beside his bed and running
his hand under Mr. Stout's pillow.
The latter made a leap at the burglar,
who made a quick
the door, which he had propped open
for just such an imergency. The two
had a lively race for about one hundred yards, Mr. Stout being barefooted and in his night clothes. The
negro cut across a corn field after
leaving the yard, and Mr. Stout ran
into a barbwire fence, badly scratching his face and hands. This stopped
his pursuit, for when he had loosened
himself the thief was out of sight.
Mr. Stout returned to the house
and telephoned County Patrolman
Tyler and neighbors of the presence
of the thief in the neighborhood. Mr.
Tyler got out of bed, and with Patrolman Schaefer and several of his
neighbors, went in search of the
negro. Though bruised and footsore,
Mr. Stout participated in the chase.
The negro was tracked across the
corn fields for several miles, but he
could not be found. Mr. Stout says
he would not know the negro should
he see him, as it being dark he could
not recognize his features.
Mr. Stout kept a shot gun in his
room, and the negro had removed
this out in the yard, and returned for
the money which Mr. Stout kept
under his pillow, as the negro thought.
