International Dry Farming
Congress
Will Be the Greatest Gathering In
Canada
.The coming International Drjj Far
ming Congress which convenes nt
Lethbridge, Canada, October 21st to
26th gives promise of being the great
est gathering of agriculturists and
other prominent men Interested In
agrlculturo nnd Its related subjects
In the world. This will be tho first
time tho Congress has been taken
out of tho United States, and our
Canadian neighbors nro making every
effort to Insure a satisfactory time to
nil who may attend. Special rates
nre being mado by tho railroads and
every inducement offered in order to
draw a largo representation to Leth
bridge. A special effort Is going to
bo mado by local agriculturists to
get n worthy representation from
Utah, fhero has been considerable
talk of making nn effort to bring tho
next Congress to Salt Lako City, but
whether or not this will materialize
Is as yet problematical. .
I A feature of tho gathering that will
H be of moro than passing Interest Is
tho International Congress of Farm
Women, which is called to convene
I contemporaneously with tho Interna-
tlonal Dry Farming Congress. Mrs.
I Lesllo M. Stavert of Winnipeg, Manl
I toba, Canada, Is tho president of this
N newly organized congress, and Mrs.
I John A. Wldtsoo of Logan, is third
vice-president of the organization.
I Mrs. Lewis A. Merrill ot Salt Lake
H City is tho executive committee mem
I ber from Utah, and theso ladles are
making on effort to sccuro a dole-
gatlon of Utah women to accompany
H them to Lethbridge. Tho work of
the International Congress of Farm
S-jyomen is towards some organized
JjRfort ,0' rural community building,
H the beautifying and brightening of
H the home, the more frequent oppdrtu
H nlties for social Intercourse, the bet
H ter education of children, tho llght-
enlng of toll in tho home, and the,
H raising ot standards, mentally, mor-
ally, physically and socially in each
I neighborhood. Tho program nt each
session of tho Congress will bo do
voted to the discussion of these sub
jects. The speakers will Include
many notable men nnd women from
Institutions of learnmg and women

women who havo had actual contact
with the problems of farm life.

VERY IMPORTANT
INQUIRY MADE
The following communication was
received at tho Republican ofllco yos
tcrday. Dear Sir: From a report in tho
pross u short tlmo ago I was led to
bellovo that tho Stato Highway Com
lulesion had been converted by tho
Commercial Iloosters Club to spend
tho money which has been hi a lo
cal bank for two years on tho Stato
Road, but I urn sorry to say that ono
can seo no evidence, so far, of any
such a movo. Horo it Is lato in tho
season nnd I presume nothing enn or
will bo dono until another season.
What, therefore, will bo tho result
when wo ask tho Stato Legislature
for an 'appropriation for tho Stato
Highway hi this county? I think
they will reply, "You evldontly do not
need any moro as you havon't spont
that which has been avallablo for
two yoara."
Another thing, what is tho Agricul
tural Collego going to do with tho
road near their new powor plant at
tho mouth of tho canyon? Will wo
bo expected to pull ovor that high
grado all wlntor? It will bo cruelty
to animala if this bo tho case.
