It has long been a custom among business people that everyone con
nected with the business is entitled to a vacation of one or more weeks dur
ing the year. Farmers in like manner should so systematize their work
that both they and the members of their families may have certain periods
of rest and recreation. The work on the farm will be taken up again with
new vigor and will be viewed with more cheerfulness than can-possibly be
the case of those who never look forward to anything but the same old

Next week occurs the big Second Annual Farmers' Short Course
to be held in Willmar, Jan. 20-24, 1913. At the close of the Short Course
last winter, which was so successful, a vote was taken by those in attend
ance expressing their desire to have another Short Course for the year
1913. From that time until this, inquiries have been made about the course
and assurances have been given that there will be a large attendance dur
ing the week.
1. The work this year will be broader in scope and at the same time
more intensive than the work of last year. Besides the General Course,
Avhich will correspond to the course of last year, there will be a Department
of Home Economics for Women, a Boy's Course for the boys of the farm
above 10 or 12 years of age, a School Officers Department, a Poultry and
Horticulture Department, a Poultry Show, a Corn Show and a Teacher's
Day. Each evening there will be a joint session, which will be addressed
by some prominent citizen of the state. These addresses will be on sub
ject of general interest.
2. For the corn work large tables will be furnished where 30 or 40
bushels of corn will be placed for study and judging. This work will be
carried on in a room distinct from the Court House, probably in the Parish
House across the street to the west of the Court House. There will also be
the corn entered in competition for prizes as announced in this booklet.
3. There will be no prizes offered this year for stock but there will be
enough stock on hand during the week to serve for stock judging work.
Various stock breeders of the County have offered to bring in their stock
for this purpose. Mr Hurst of the State Farm has kindly offered some
of his Holstein cattle for one day. This work will be conducted in the new
City Fire Hall, where temporary raised seats will be provided so that the
workers may be warm and can also see and hear what is going on. There
will be stock judging classes and also talks by the experts, who will point
out the strong and weak points of the animals and compare them with
4. The Home Economics Course will be held in the Kitchen of the
High School Industrial Building, the Boy's Course in the Laboratory of the
High School building and the Horticulture and Poultry Course in the Agri
culture room of the Industrial building. The General Course and evening
meetings will be held in Court House.

diseased portion of the ear. There is only one
way to cure deafness, and that is by constitution
al remedies. Deafness is caused by au inflamed
condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian
Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a
rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when
It is entirely closed Deafness is the result, and
unless the inflammation can be taken out and
this tube restored to its normal condition, hear
