Co-operative Congress, Plymouth, 1910. (Co-operative Printing Society, Manchester.)—This, the Report

of the forty-second Congress, is, as might be expected, full of interesting matter. It is illustrated also with photographs of various objects and portraits of delegates. We cannot go into the details of the many subjects dealt with ; one, however, we may mention. Something, it seems to us, might be done in bringing producers more into touch with the Co-operative movement. Most of the articles sold in the ordinary Co-operative Stores are imports ; of the few that are not, fruit is one. Does the ordinary store manager make it a rule to get into relations with the grower ? This is now especially important in view of the increase of small holdings.
