The Annual Farmers' Institute was
held In Cowles Monday anil Tuesday
oi i ms ween, ine nueiiiiuiiuu nn
quite large ami very gratifying to the
manager. In many respects this win
the best institute ever held ill Cowles
and the farmers and business tueu arc
well pleased with this year's exhibition
and program The value of nu In
stitution of this eharacler eiiuuot be
measured in dollars mid cents. Ex
periences are exchanged, new methods
learned, and every farmer and stock
raiser is stimulated to do better the
coming year. If one man is induced
to rulse oue bushel of corn mure to the
acre, raise a better colt, or increase
his ctUcieucy in auv manner these in
stitutes are well worth the time Hnd
care It takes to make them possible.
The good people of Cowles are to be
congratulated on the exelluut maimer
in which this Institute was conducted.
Mot a word of condemnation was beard
and cveryoue was delighted with the
success of this year's effort.
The display of agricultral pioducts
was very laige aud also very fine.
There were twenty differeut sets of
ar corn in the exhibit HUd every ear
was of-good quality. The wheat and
oats exhibit was good aud the potatoe
display was one of the best ever shown
in this section of the state. Then
there was garden truck of every des
cription wuieh delighted the eye aud
convinced all on lookers that we have
a great slate.
The Ladies' department was filled
witu the haudlwork of the house wife.
All the work was an unitizing array of
needle work, fancy stitches, tatting
aud muny others. ,
The school exhibit was exceptionally
good. The work in the plaster relief
maps showed great pains and accuracy.
The details were well carried out aud
the evidence of exceptional ability was
-displayed through out the entire ex
hibit Our country schools are rapid
ly forging to the front aud their work
is simply astonishing.
The poultry exhibit was not as good
-as might have been expected. This
department seems to have been ne
glected but there was plenty of evi
dence to convluce on that the coming
of another year the chickens will have
.an equal show with the other depart
ments. Practically all the birds were
uuder weight but the exhibitors will
Uuow better what to select another
The Lectures given by the state
workers were all well attended aud
highly appreciated. The speakers were
practical people. They have not only
studied the theory of farming but they
have also had actual experience on
.the farm. Mr. Leonard is sixty years
tld and has been a careful observaut
farmer all his life. What he had to
say carried much weight because he
knew what he was talking about.
Mr. Odell had a very busy time as
fsoon as he struck town, Mr. Keeney
taking him in hand and steering him
.to the corn exhibits where he judged
the corn samples. He reported that we
should test our seed corn.
On Tuesday evening at the M. E.
-ohurch tho first thing on the program
consisted of a few selections by our
-band, followed by Miss Sabln whose
talk surely pleased the people, and
was Instructive. She was followed by
,Mr. Leonard who went back 50 years
.and worked up to our present time.
Next came Mr. Odell who is a very
interesting talker, and while he did
.not announce his subject the large
.crowd all remained and listened and It
proved to be very, very good.
All the old officers were re-elected,
President, II. G. Keeney.
