Great Meeting in Ohio.
At one meeting in Ohio upon the
farm of Joseph E. Wing, near Mechan
lcsburg, nearly 4,000 people gathered
from all parts of Ohio and adjoining
states to learn more about alfalfa. At
this great meeting the Ohio State Al
falfa Growers' association was organ

the alfalfa train. It is recorded as
the greatest agricultural assemblage
in the history of Ohio. Other Ohic

t An Unnecessary Menace.
* It is a wonder to us how the
people of the city can be so patient
and so happy, when the crossing
in some of the streets of the city

us that they would put the things
nearer the road bed either by grad
ing up to the crossing or lowering
the crossing. This is expensive to
owners of vehicles.
