For the benefit of those who may not
have bad an opportunity to examine tho .

that tho services or Joseph ?. Wing, tho
well-known expert on altalfa, have been
secured. Mr. Wing, has mudo a wonder?

as one of the leading authorities on the
subject in this country. If there is any
subject engaging the attention of Vir?
ginia farmers at tho present timo mora
than any other It is that of alfalfa grow?

laud tills full or next spring In allitlla
will bo well repaid for making any ?acri?

ly >o say that there is no crop that will

than alfalfa, lio matter in what section

the subject, of Sheep Husbandry In Vir?

places, tliere Is room for Improvement and
development. Wo have' made wonderful
progress along many agricultural lines
in this State and there are few States
which compare with Virginia, in diver?
sity of crop production and climatic and
soil resources, but many of our Industries
are only In their Infancy. We are to-day
growing a small per cent, of lambs as
compared, with what we could grow with
advantage and prollt. The hoof of the
sheep is golden; he will grow and thrive
to advantage In much of our rough land,
nnd by laying It down to grass we can
preservo It indefinitely, Therefore, Uns

good thing? for tho former. As has been
said before. It represents an agricultural
education In three days, for there Is not
a man on tue program who has not made
a practical success of the work he will
discuss. Furthermore, it I? nn Inspiration
to com? in contact with such men and
to realize that by educated cirons mucn
more may ho accomplished In the future
for tho improvement of oar soils and the

Wliat we noed In tneso day? ot seen

who succeed on the form In the futur?
must make science tho handmaid of good,

that right here In Virginia tnere are

thing to think.that tomo of our citizens
arc leaving the State each year seeking
their fortuneirelsewhere because they bo.
lleve tho soils of Virginia are exhausted,
or that there is no chanco for a poor man
to acquire a competency and atay at

about from the fact that education has

The aim and object of this And other

Is ?Imply to give hundreds of farmers
an opportunity to feel the ln*plra.tlon that

Intelligent conception of the qualities of

that the State farmers" Institute hopes
to stimulate, and purely this Is an Inter?
