Berries of Finest Quality and
Size Raised Here.
Tin; lower end of Jasper county
is known far and wide as a straw
berry section, and down there they
live right up to their reputation
year after year, .shipping hundreds
of carloads of this fruit in a season
and giving employment to an army
The strawberry liclds begin a
little over 12 miles below Jasper,
ami the land all through that sec
tion is said to be no better for
berry growing than that surround
ing this town, and this opinion is
borne out time and again by the
practical experiments of farmers
in this vicinity John B. Kincaid
and G. A. , McVay are mnrkettng
berries here this week that are the
equal ol any coming, up from bo
luw here. Mr. Kincaid lives three
miles southeast of Jasper and has
three-quarters of an acre in berries.
Saturday he sold S38 worth "and
Monday S50 worth, and at that
time he had hardly got started.
Mr. McVay brought berries in
Monday that weighed more than
an ounce each 15 berriofc td, the
M. Burkclt is also marketing fine
berries this week.
The fact of the matter seems to
be that this section can be made
to equal the Sarcoxie section in
the cultivation of strawberries any
time our people want to make it so.

Will Help Farmers Build Silos.
The College ot Agriculture nt the.
University of Mibioun has pcrl.ct-
cd plans to help farmers build con
crcte silos The chief dirriculty
which confronts the individual
farmer who wants to build a con
crete silo is the expenie of the
"foims" used in the construction.
If several farmers join m making
the forms it is less expensive. It
costs still less to rent the foims.
The College of Agriculture has
made a limited number of these
forms for building concrete silos
and will rent them to farmers un
der the following conditions.
1. At least three farmers in a
community must apply at one
2. The rental charge will be ten
dollars each when there- are three
farmers, nine dollars each lor five
fanners, and eight dollars each
w iien six or more silos are ron
structed in one community. The
rental must be paid m advance.
,5 The College will send a man
free to help start the construction
ot the first silo, and will pay the
freight on the forms.
If a group of farmers desire to
construct their own forms, plans
and specifications will be furnished
under certain conditions. Under
the latter plan the College will
send a man when possible to holp
start the building of the first silo,
provided his expense!, are jKiid by
Full information regarding this
plan of cooperative silo building
may be had by writing to the Un
iversity of Missouri Dairy Depart
ment. Columbia, Mo.
