What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

PAUL EQUITY CO-OPERATIVE GRAIN MARKETING AGENCY MAY LEAVE MINNEAPOLIS NEW LOCATION IS ENCOURAGED Mercantile organizations of Saintly City Negotiating With Farmers to Get Their Busindss and Handle Biggest Share of Northwestern Crops. Indications are that the Equity Co- operative Exchange, the farmers' ter- minal grain marketing agency, will move from Minneapolis to St. Paul. Business organizations of St. Paul are negotiating with the farmers and If present plans are carried out the headquarters of the farmers' co-opera- tive grain marketing movement will locate in the Saintly City. This means also that St. Paul Will be headquar- ters for the co-operative ruarketiea movement in various other products in which farmers are interested. The many Northwestern farmers who are back of the farmers' co-oper- ative marketing movement feel that their terminal grain marketing agency has never received a fair deal from business men of Minneapolis. The Equity Co-operative Exchange has made steady progress since it was or- ganized in August, 1912, but it has had the fierce opposition of the com- bined grain interests in the Minne- apolis Chamber of Commerce right from the start. The Chamber of Commerce interests are closely affil- iated with banks and other business institutions of Minneapolis. At the big co-opeimtive marketing convention held in Minneapollaaa few weeks ago, St. Paul business men In- vited the farmers to locate their co- operative exchange in that city. The fact that the large volume of grain handled by the Equity Co-operative Exchange is sold almost entirely to mills and buyers outside of Minne- apolis, which would make it possible for the farmers' exchange to establish its headquarters in either city, gave St. Paul its opportunity. . St. Paul business men see in the Farmers' Equity Co-operative Exchange an op portunity to get for St. Paul a good share of the grain trade. It is predicted by men who have given the matter careful study that the Co-operative Exchange will be handling a large percentage, of the Northwestern grain crop in a com- paratively few years. The farmers ot Western Canada entered the terminal grain markets with their own agency only a few years ago and are now handling almost one-half of Canada's annual grain crop. The Equity Co- operative Exchange has shown that it can build up a market for grain out- side the Minneapolis Chamber of Com- merce and Duluth Board ot Traie and, with adequate terminal e? fi'cilitlei aá fair - treattsent la bank- ing accommodations the velume of grain handled by the Farmers' Co- operative Exchange is expected to in- crease rapidly. This business cleared through St. Paul would.add mightily to the Saintly City's trade totals and subtract Just that much from the busi- ness of Minneapolis. The farmers Interested in the co- operative marketing movement are de- termined to secure better terminal marketing conditions. The recent co- operative marketing convention in Minneapolis took steps to carry on the fight for an open public grain market and to reform abuses which they say have grown up in the grain trade Some of these abuses they propose to reform by legislation, others by cre- ating an open board of trade, which will be established in St. Paul in case the Equity Co-operative Exchange moves to that city. The Farmers' Equity Co-operative Exchange is entirely a co-operative organization. It is owned by farmers The men In charge of the exchange work on salary. The profits, over and above the 8 per cent dividend on capi tal stock, are shared among patrons according to the amount of grain shipped to the exchange. The movement to establish a farm- ers' co-operative grain exchange in the terminal markets originated among Equity farmers in North Dakota, but the movement rapidly spread to other states and there are now on the board of directors of the exchange represen- tatives of the principal farmers' co- operative organizations of Minnesota, North and South Dakota and Mon- tana. The exchange has the endorse- ment of the genuine farmers' cc, - operative organizations of those few states. The farmers' co-operative termieel grain marketing movement is the out- growth of the farmers' co-operative elevator movement, which established the ferment' elevators as importaat factors in the local grain markets at hundreds of points in the Northwest. These farmers' co-operative elevator companies are now carrying their CO - operative marketing of grain late tile terminal markets with de purpose of controlling the marketing of their grain from the fields to the actusi consumer.

THE HAND GLORIOUS Baccalaureate Address Delivered By Rev. J. H. Durand to the Graduat- ing Class of the Moore H. S. And the Lord said unto him, \what Is that in thy hand?\ Exodus 4-2. It is with a deep sense of privilege afforded me, that I stand before you, ,here this evening, and yet at the same time I recognize my responsi- bility, for who known what may be the result, direct or indirect, of this service, upon. some who are gathered here to listen to this address. This class of young men and wo- men, who are juat grad -eating from High ,Sellool, have reached a turning point in their lives. The world will (never be the same to them again, for they are about to step forth from the magic circle 'that has surrounded them from childhood, and, in a new sense, take their places in the world, to give to it the push *and vim of their young manhood and young womanhood. Lite is a marvelous possession, it 'contains such wonderful possibilities and opportunities, and opens up be- fore the young graduate a glory of mighty achievement. . So, my young friends, I come be- fore you tonight, at your request,' to deliver your Baccalaureate sermon, bad I sincerely trust that my lips shall be the medium through which the Voice of the Divine may speak to the &Gull of every inaltviduaill here present. ' Ft is barely possible that the text may appear peculiar at first glance, and some may be led to wonder wherein Dies its significanice for this °motion, but I have not chose It beetily, or without thought, and I sinderely trust it will be as a beacon light to your vision, as you may con - eider it and elbow it to open up be- fore you in the days that are to some. \What is that in thine head?\ Time question came from the lips of Jehovah to one whom He bad chosen to be a leader of men in the world. It le. genearlly conceded that Moises -was a mighty general, a great states- man, a man with a deep religious ex- iperlence, and yet, upon receiving the 'call to his life's work, he hesitated , and -feared and doubted. Marvelous was God's patience with him, marvelous; the way God lest him, end made him to recognize the power beyond, - whieb was his, if only he laeould reach out and grasp it. It is not good for us to be over -con ildent, yet self-oontemrpt in ruinous. The meekness of ,Moses blinded his eyes to the possibilities of his own strength, and turthermorei this blind - n ose prevented him from recognizing as his own, the Mighty of Him. who had cabled hint from the narrow (-on- line* of a shepherd's life to be a representative, mast amongst men. It was a simple method God took of teaching him, but it Was sulfioient. In the midst of his doubt luiik kr . and questioning kednee the queation, \What is that in thy hand?\ and he answered, \A rod.\ And He said, f'Oast it on the ground,\ and he cast IA an the ground, and it became e serpent, and Moses fled from before It. And the Lord said unto Mamie \Put forth thy hand ,and take • it by the tail.\ And be put forth his hand and caught it, and it became a rod in his band. Is it not a fact that God often does Hie greatest work by the humblest means? We do not find great force of nature in the earthquake whit* tumbles the city into ruins, for this power lasts but a few moments at the most. 'The soft, silent light, the warm simmer rain, the stars whose voice%) are not heard, these are the mighty forces which fill the earth with riches, and control the worlds which constitute the wide universe of God. So with the Workings of Providence. Martin Luther was a poor monk, yet within him .was a deep conviction, and the world shook under its power. Linnaeus was the son of a country Person. He had very little of this world's goods. In fact when. he commenced to study botany he had but eight shillings to his name, yet he became the most eminent betanist of his time. Columbus did no.. amount to much in the eyes of Europe. Men thought him a visionary, and ridiculed his Ideas. He had no great steamer to carry him across the Atlantic, but he ?was a , man of conviction, and at last Induced the rulers of Spain to back litm in his enterprise, and set Ball across an unknown sea . with three entail Miles. How wondrous was the result of that voyage. The founders of our Republic were humble, pious Men, yet how mighty the foundation they laid. /the Pilgrim Fathers sough, only a place where they could wor- ship God in lance, 'yet now the world - rises up and calls them blear& The founders of the mighty force which !We call Christianity were fishermen, ttnd their leader the eon of a carpets , - 'er. \What is that in thy hand, Moseties Just a rod, a shepherd's crook, but in that rod is manifested the power of Cod, and I wouSal have you to notice that in calling Moses to his life's swork, God doe % not require of him 'what he has not. He does not re- quire af him sword and shield and Ispear and armies, in order to go forth to be the deliverer of Israel. The question is not \What canst thou do? (\must thou secure those who will en - 'list minder thy banner, albeit thy Com- mands, and go forth to fight for aibertY end right? Catast thou auDOW NUMBER 37 Such an army with weapons and (munitions of war?\ Thee would have been an impossibility for the sliep- pourricAL heed s and then, Moses might truth- fully have deelareel himself unable to take teethe work at hand. What God &aid to him iwar, \What is that ln thine hand?\ Not \What can you seeure?\ but \What have you?': . and this is the question for On to oensider here today. The Power of the Human Hand Now I would have you know that in itself the human hand is a mighty enstrusnen t for accomplishment. The 'hand was- called by Gatem the in lerument of instruments. Cicero eulogized it, and 'writers before and OPINION BY ATTY. GEN. KELLY !since have done the same. \No -other animal poseeee the hand. It is the 'principal oigan of feeling, it can, be .
