WHY HAVE A
1. Iiecause every thinking person
who studies the subject must admit
that agricultural conditions nro not
what they should be. The land Is
not being made to produce whnt It
should nnd Its finality Is becoming de
pleted. Productivity Is not keeping
pace with Increase In population.
2. ltecnttsu tho l 8. Department
of Agrlculturo nnd the stnto college
of agriculture hns a vast amount of
scientific and useful knowledge gain
ed by resenrch nud experimentation,
which lr practically applied will bo
Immeasurable benefit In Improving
the roudltlous mentioned. Part of
the tnxes which tho people pay Is
used to glean this knowledge nnd It
Is right that tho Informntton gained
should bo returned to them to bo used
:. Because a farm ndvlsor, In
closo touch with these sources of In
formation, is generally considered
the most practicable medium through
which Oils agricultural knowledge
can bo made available for use by the
farmers of a county.
What In the Duty of u Fmm Adviser V
Ills duty Is to help Improve the
agricultural conditions nnd methods
hi tho county by consultation with the
dinners Mid by practical demonstra
tions on their farms. He has an of
fice In the county-vent whero for two
nr three days In each week the farm
ers may consult with him about their
particular problems of 'farming nnd
where the testing of seed and moII
and other experimental work may be
carried on. Tho balnuco of tho week
would be spoilt by the adviser In visit
ing farms to study their needs, In

What it iv llio Qimllfk-ntloiit of
Fit I'm AdvUcrV
llo would be n representative In
the county of the l. S. Department of
Agriculture and the utato college of
agriculture. As suci he would hnvo
knowledge of the latest and most Im
proved methods and be In clone touch
with the best sources of Information,
llestdeB u thorough technical training
he must hnvo practical experience as
well. No more untried nud Inexperi
enced agricultural student could be
chosen for tho plnco but only .vim
through practical experience had
demonstrated his ability and could

In the Work of n Farm Advisor Prac
Yob, The splendid results nchlnv-
ed by such men In the southern
statCB as representatives of the V. S.
Government are almost unbelievable.
In our ownstate, Pettis county testi

will help the farmers to mako 1 per

How In the Work of the Farm Adviser
to bo Supported'.'
A good man, such as Sallno county
Bhould have, would cost 2,500, or
$3,000 n yoar. This would cover his
salary and expenses In traveling over
tho county. The U. S. Department of
Agrlculturo nnd'the state collego of
agriculture will pay half of this am
ount, providing the county contributes
tho rest. This is certnlnly a fnlr
proposition nnd Is a chnllongo to our
county prldo. Can Sallno county af
ford to decline? Forty petitions aro
being circulated over tho county nsk
Ing the county court to appropriate
$1,500, a year for three years as Its
part toward this work. These peti
tions must bo signed this week. There
