WARREN WILL BE HOST TO BIG
FATHERING OF FARMERS, FEB.
24 TO MARCH 4FARMERS' IN-
STITUTE AND SCHOOL OF
The biggest gathering of farmers
ever seen in Marshall county will be
in Warren from Feb. 24 to March 4,
to attend the school of traction engi
neering and lecture courses that will
be arranged for their benefit. Pro
gressive farmers from all parts of the
valley will be here to attend the en
gineering school, numerous applica
tions for enrollment having already,
been received by Nels Johnson, who
has interested himself in this matter.
The Sheaf believes that the commer
cial clnb as well as every business
man in the city should co-operate and
push the good thing along. Let com
mittees be appointed to secure good
speakers and. lecturers on various
farm topics, so that it will be worth
while for every farmer to come here,
regardless of whether or not he
wishes specially to study traction en
gineexing. The extension division of
the State University will gladly send
its best men here, if asked to do so.
It is too big a task for one man alone
to make the necessary arrangements
Cor a gathering of this kind.
It is up to the whole city to take
ihold and the Sheaf knows before
hand that it will do so, and that a
good, big profitable farmers' week
will be held here at the time men

ANOTHER SILVER WEDDING IN
Mr. and Mrs. A. P. Palm, of Vega,
celebrated their silver wedding on
Jan. 18, an account of which is given
by our North of Alvarado correspond
ent. They were united in marriage at
Warren by the editor of this paper,
who then held the office of justice of
the peace. We had the honor to of
ficiate at quite a few marriages, when
there was no minister at hand, and,
as far as we know, we tied the knots
firmly, as in the case of Mr. and Mrs.
Palm. We regretted very much that
we were unable to be present at their
silver wedding, and we do therefore
now congratulate the honored couple
and wish them God's blessings as
richly in the future as in tbe past.

their way just by means of this train

least ten graduates that are employed
in banks. When you consider that
an education is value, then also think
of it that an education produces value
for you. Think also of the innumer
able others that have graduated from

SANATORIUM IN EACH COUNTY
Health Talk No. 27
Aid for Minnesotans suffering with
.tuberculosis is planned in two import
ant bills introduced at the present
session of the legislature. One pro
vides for the appointment of a State
Tuberculosis Commission and the oth
er for the erection of county sanato
ria, part of the cost for which is to be
paid by the state. v'
The tuberculosis commission, as
proposed, is to take the place of the
advisory committee in charge of the
State Sanatorium for Consumptives
at Walker. This commission is to
consist of five members, three of
whom are to be licensed physicians,
and the fifth, the executive officer of
the State Board of Health. The Gov
ernor is vested with authority to ap
point the commission.
The more important of the pending
bills, probably, is the one providing
for the erection and maintenance of
county sanatoria. According to the
provisions of the bill, the state will
pay one-half of. the cost of the erec
tion and equipment, providing not
fewer than twenty beds are maintain
ed. In cases where persons afflicted
with tuberculosis are unable to pay
tor treatment, the state, will pay $5 a
week, and the county $5. All persons
$vho are financially able, will pay $10
a week for their care and treatment.
Provision also is made in the bill
whereby counties which already have
sanatoria, shall receive $500 per bed
from the state treasury.
Erection of county sanatoria has
met the approval of a vast majority
of persons interested in the fight
against the "great white plague".
They are looked upon as preferable
to one big institution because they
will tend to keep the sufferers nearer
home where they may be visited by
their families and friends. Both of the
pending bills will probably be
adopted. ALLEGED MIND-READING STUNT
The Holt Northern Light last week
tells a story that sounds rather
say- the, Jga^w, A man by fePf^ get this time,.
there recently under peculiar circum
stances, leaving widow and several
children without visible means of sup
port. But John Gunderson, who for
merly lived near Thief Lake, now and
for several years a resident of Cana
da, wrote a letter to Mrs. GronwaM,
upon her request, and told where a
large sum of money, recently owned
by the deceased, was hidden, the hid
ing places being described in detalil.
Gunder P. Sorter, a neighbor of the
woman, assisted in the search, and
found some of the money in the barn,
some in the cellar and some under
the kitchen roof just as stated in the
letter$715 in all.
How the woman could think of in
voking the aid of Gunderson to find
the money and how he was able to
tell where it was, are mysteries yet
unsolved. Gunderson in his letter al
so hints at foul play in connection
with Gronwald's death.

on one of the routes out of the city

From the reports of the secretary

son, who for several reasons wanted
lo repre. C. A. Lindell was elected
president and Peter Erickson, vice
innection with this, permit me
a few words in regard to co
on. '$.-$& has been proven time
ain, that by working co-opera
farmers can accomplish bigger
tter results than could be done
king individually.. Let me give
example: Five years ago the
farme|g of Viking organized a coop
ative creamery association. When
this association had nicely started, it
also %,d a nice debt on hand. But
what has been done during these five
years ?j I will tell you. At its last
ann.uaj| meeting almost a year ago, it
hadvpd up every cent of debt, being
thlfsofe owner of the plant, and had
several hundred dollars cash in the
treasury. Besides this, it has all the
tira| paid as much for butter fat, and
sonibtimes more, than any other
creamery in this part of the country,
except one or two.
Si there you see, Mr. Farmer, what
co-qperation can do. No! it is no
danger to invest your money in a co
operative company, providing you get
an .bonest set of officers and a man
age*: that understands his business.

Four Great Sauces.
A Frenchman has declared that
"man has created the culinary art
he does not eat like an animalhe
breakfasts, dines and sups."
The French are particularly elo
quent on the subject of sauces.
Among their famous chefs are recog
nized four great sauces: Spanish,
Veloute, Bechamel and German. The
Spanish and Veloute were known as
far back as the seventeenth century.
In the eighteenth they were modified
by the masters of cookery, particular
ly by Careme, who was called "the
Raphael of the kitchen."
The Spanish sauce Is composed of
juices extracted from a mixture of
ham, veal, chicken and pheasant
Veloute Is similar, but is not colored.
Bechamel is Veloute to which cream
has been added, and the German
sauce is Veloute plus the yolks of
eggs.Harper's Weekly. i,

STATE ART SOCIETY GETS ARCH-
ITECTS TO PLAN MODEL RU-
Minnesota farmers are to have the
advantage of a vast amount of new
information about farmhouse build
ing which will be gathered by the
State Art Society through a competi
tion of architects. The conditions,
which were sent to all architects in
the state this week indicate that the
director of the Society, Maurice I.
Flagg, who has had helpful confer
ences with many farmers on the sub
ject, intends that the designs submit
ted shall provide those simple but of
ten forgotten conveniences which
make the work of the women folk eas
ier and living conditions more pleas
It is specified, for instance, that on
the first floor there shall be a wash
room and toilet for use of the farm
help. This provision was the result
of the complaint, frequently heard,
that the housewife is annoyed and in
convenienced by the farm hands
"tracking into" the kitchen and wash
ing at the kitchen sink.
Another provision is that two up
stairs bedrooms for farm hands shall
be separated from the other (bed
rooms, and entered by a separate
stairway from the wash room. This
will give members of the family pri
These are but two of the features
to be covered in the plans which the
architects will draw so the farmers
may have the most modern ideas in
homebuilding. Virtually all Minne
sota farmers are prosperous enough
to have the very best machinery and'
stock, and pianos and automobiles'
and most of them have these things.
But few.fix up their houses so they
beautiful as they might bethey Just
"put up with" the old home and its
old equipment. This doubtless has
been due largely to the difficulty in
getting trained architects to take up
their peculiar problem.
Now the State Art Society, a de
partment of the state government,
has taken up the problem for them.
Prizes totaling $500.00 will be given
and it is expected that a large num
ber of plans will be entered. They
will all be shown at the exhibit of the
State Art Society in the Auditorium,
St. Paul, March 1-8 In the Minneapo
lis public library, March 21 to 31, and
in the Owatonna public library, April
12 to 31.
At least six prize-winning plans
will be published and may be obtain
ed by any Minnesota farmer. Later
the first prize plans probably will be
carried out in a house built on the
agricultural college grounds in St.
The whole enterprise promises to
be of great value to Minnesota farm
ers, who, if they avail themselves ef
the information, may transform the*
appearance of their farms and add
greatly to the pleasure of living on
them. One of the features will be a debate.
