Mistake In Dates Made a Jumble
On Attendance—A Free
Trip For Farmers.
The farmers' institute given at Colfax
Tuesday, under the direction and at the
expense of the 0, R. A N. Company, was
a success in all things except the attend
ance. This was practically nil. At do
time were there more than a score of
tanners in the audience, though enter
tainiiig and instructive addresses were
made bj Prof. W. J. Spillnian of the
Agricultural college and Hon. C. L.
Smith of Minnesota, both morning and
The fact that there was an error in the
dute of announcement of holding the
meetings, as given by the official posters,
was recponsfble to a large degree for the
slight attendance Tuesday. The dates
announced were for Monday and Tues
day, while the speakers understood it to
be Tuesday and Wednesday. Conse
quently they failed to put in their ap
pearance on the day the first crowd did.
and the crowd failed to appear when the
The object of these institutes is to
draw the attention of progressive farm
ers toward diversification of products
on their farms, thus enlarging produc
tion and enriching the country and the
Mr. Smith, a pioneer of Minnesota
and an active worker in farmers' insti
tutes for many years, spoke on the ad
vancement of the farmers of his state
after turning their attention to diversi
fied products a dozen .\earn ago. lie
told how, when he first went among
them preaching diversification, they
were in poverty and yearly growing
poorer through exclusive wheat growing,
according to their own arguments and
statements. Their land was worn out
through constant wheat cropping. Yet
one and all declared that cows, hogs
and diversity in general would not pay.
For years they would not take hold, but
kept on growing wheat, until the chinch
bugs came as blessings in disgni.se and
literally ate up the crops for two years
They were thus forced into other lines,
until now Minnesota is the great dairy
state of the union, covered with co oper
ative ereameries,|which are paying hand
come dividends, pastured by hogs and
cattle which largely add to the incomes,
and swarming with poultry which pay
the grocery bills —while now more wheat
is raised on the farms so tilled than was
ever grown when devoted exclusively to
wheat. Year by year, since the adoption
of the new plaus, the farmers have pros
pend. The board shucks have disap
peared, or are disappearing, and in their
places are reared substantial modern
farm houses and barns. The farmerc
generally have money in the bank*; they
are free from debt, ami prosperity is
theirs. This great change has been
brought about in a lew yetirs by aban
donment of tiie one-crop system; it is
largely due to dairy ing alone.
Mr. Smith asserts that when the Min
nesota tinners were first approached on
the subject of diversity they were filled
with doubt atid distrust. They though!
the institute workers theorists; but, he
said, there was a hundred times more
theorists among the farmers than among
those who were nsking them to change
their systems —and the greatest trouble
of all was (hat all their theories were
wrong. Th« institute workers did not
deal in theories; they stood on facts and
actual reMilts only. The speaker said
the greatest obstacle to progress, ad
vancement and prosperity is doubt and
distrust: that, of course, success could
only come through new lines by kuowl
edge gained. He had known some la-i
mentable failures where new lines had
been taken up, because practical good
sense had not been employed. He ad
vised more thinking, more dependence
upon the brain and less upon the horny
hand undirected by the head.
The address of Mr. Smith was sensible,
practical anil eniertaining. It was well
worth the attention of every Pelouse
farmer, each of whom could have learned
something to his advantage, and it is to
be regretted that they took so little in
terest in the meeting as to fail to furn
ish a respectably sized audience.
Professor Spiltman spoke on the sob
jects of dairy cows and their proper
rations. He mlso illustrated a model
lUO-aere farm, divided into as nearly as
possible 30-arre fields, with I<> acres' for
buildings, orchard and garden, rotating
crops on each, so that neither field raised
the same crop twice in succession, thus
preserving fertility. He advocated live
stock growing an ,j returning to the land
the fertility taken away.
Free to Farmers
In the name of the O. It. & N. Co , Mr.
Smith extended to his audience an mvi
tation for ten farmers to signify their
willingness to attend the school of dairy
ing opening at the Agricultural college
January 14, promising free trausporta
tion to them in order that they might i
study the progressive methods' taught.
The required number arose and will be
passed to and from by the company.
The dairy school will be in session eight
weeks. Students will be under instruc
tion of l'rof. Harris of Michigan, one of i
the most skilled men in the United States i
on butter making, and Prof. Ludwig
Bngelmen of Lndiaua, a noted expert in \

Splendid Orchard of General Tan- !

General T. R. Tannatt of Farmington i
was in the city Wednesday on a taxpay- ■

Only about one-third of his orchard is

CITY TICKET NAMED
Not Probable That Any Opposi-!
tion Will Be Developed.
Race For Major Was Close and
Exciting Between W. J. Daven
port and Julius Lippitt.
The mass convention of Colfax citizens
held at the court house Thursday even
ing of last week, for the purpose of
nominating a ticket for the municipal
election to be held next Tuesday, was
the most interesting and best attended
of the kind in the history of the town.
On th>- ballot for mayor the vote reach
ed 219, gradually dwindling away as
the less exciting offices were balloted
for and the citizens left the hall.
The result of the convention was the
nomination of the following ticket. It
is not believed it will be contested by
the placing of any independent ticket in
the field, as the mode of balloting was
absolutely fair and it was undoubtedly
a fair expression of the gathering:
Mayor—VV. J. Davenport.
< it v Attorney— E M Warner.
Treasurer—H. G. DePledge.
Conncilman-at large—££. 11. Wheeler.
Councilman First ward—J. A. I'.yrns;
Second ward, Patrick Codd; Third wardi
The counciltnen for the various wards
were chopeu in ward caucuses, their se
lection being simply ratified by the
larger convention. This was also
practically true of the councilman at
large, to which the Third ward was this
The First ward caucus chose J. A.
Byrns. by the following vote: Byrns 22,
S 1) Lommasson G, John Dingle 7.
The Second ward caucus took two
ballots, the first 119 votes, aud the sec
ond 124 First ballot—A. J. Davis 44
I. Codd 40, Dr. Harvey 1(5, R. P. Bill
19. On the second ballot Codd was
nominated, the Harvey and Hill men
going to him in a body. The vote was:
Codd 78, Davis 46—total 124.
The Third ward selected Wm. Mastin
to succeed himself and Hugh Wheile.r as
its choice for councilman at-large.
Close Vote On Mayor.
After the selection of J. N. Pickrell as
chairman, Elmer Bellinger secretary,and
Frank Woodin, W. C. Fudge and L E
Allen as tellers, came the close and ex
citing ballot for mayor. J. A. Byrns
named W. J. Davenport and Mayor
Stnbt propfised Julius Lippitt. These
were the only nominations and 21 U
votes were cast as follows: Davenport
107, Lippitt 105, G scattering and one
blank. Davenport was declared the
nominee under the plurality rule
Mr. Lippitt in the ltace.
While it was thought early In the week
that no opposition to the city ticket
nominated Thursday night at the citi
zens' convention would be put forward
in the city election, the close vote on
mayor has decided the friends of Julius
Lippitt to push him on a ticket nomi
nated by petition. The petition will be
filed today, and Mr. Lippitt will be an
active candidate against Mr. Davenport.
Mr Lippitt announces that it is at the
earnest solicitation of leading taxpayers
thar he has consented to enter the race,
and that he is bound to no clique, fac
tion or interest, having no entangle
ments except those looking to good and
economical government of the city.
When preparing for nominations for
clerk J. T. Brown moved the adoption
of a rule dropping the lowest man on
each ballot aud requiring a majority of
ail votes cast to elect. The motion did
not prevail. C. M. VV'yman named H.

Howard Bramwell, J. G. Combs brought
out John Stinson, Chas. Platt named
I. B. Doolittle, Wm Mastin brought for

Thanksgiving wasspent at Colfax with
I innumerable home dinner parties and

EIFTV FEET THKOKiH SPACE.
Dr. Boswell Throwu Hard in a
Tear up Runaway.
Dr. Cal. M. Boswell narrowly escaped
death Wednesday in a runaway. As it
is be is laid up for a season with his
back badly sprained from neck to hips
by being hurled in a dozen somersaults
fifty feet through the air. Soft ground
was all that saved him.
The doctor was on a professional visit
to the daughter of Henry Hickman near
Almota. When within two miles of his
destination his team ran away. Paul
Maury, who was beside the road and
witnessed the accident, says of the affair:
"I saw the doctor coming, and was
just ready to salute him when one of his
horses shied violently, and immediately
began kicking. Soon the other let its
heels fly and the dashboard and all the
top works of the buggy were in splinters
iv a few seconds. Even the double aud
swingle-trees were demolished and shod
hoofs were flying over the crouched head
of the doctor in bewildering style. Then
the team ran wild. 1 mounted a horse
and followed, expecting the doctor
would be killed. For about half a n\ile
the doctor held them in the road, until
finally all was kicked loose except one
trace. They were going at terrific speed,
when the buggy tongue dropped and ran
in a bank. The buggy turned to one
side and the doctor went straight on. 1
saw him go whirling through the air,
turning over and over like a circus aero
bat over elephants. Myself, Geo. Down
ing, Wm. Reuben, Jos. Hanlisty and Mr.
Champlin reached him soon after. He
was lying uncouscious fully 50 feet from
where the buergy pole struck the bank,
but he soon revived and we brought him
immediately to town on a bed made in
the bed of a hack."
Dr. Harvey, who examined Dr. Bos
well's injuries, said soon after: "No
bones are broken. The injury is severe
spraining of the back, from neck to hips,
resulting from a fall on head and shoul
ders. It is not expected that serious re
sults will follow. The soft ground is the
only thing that saved him."
