Record Herald. The ever, t was cele

About the board were the men who

Three days now have the plow mag

Negotiations proceeded in secret, but

Look for Export Trade.
Judge Vincent said of the combine
We expect that the -greatest part
of our trade will be export trade when
we are once fairly started. The com
bine will be able to promote the plow
trade in South America, Africa and
elsewhere in a way that an individaal
company could not do. There ar no
steel plows at all in South Ameiica.
Most of the people there use primi
tive devices lor plowing. All that is
needed is to show them the superior
ity of steel plows and they will buy
them. One of our members is now
tilling an ''order fir 3 000 plows in
Rus-ia. There is no resvn why
tbould not stnd them to every coun
try, not only in Europe, but in south
America and Ala. "

The week has been excellent for car

How Association la Conducted.
The manner of transacting the bus
iness rf the association furnishes a
valuable lesson in practical efTiirs for
the members. Tbe constitution is
explicit and is followed to the Utter.
Ibe organization is self supporting
througn small does and the collection
of gate receipts at the games played.
The teachers stand personally respon
sible for the payment of all obliga
tions incurred. Tbat the association
pays its own way may be judged by
the fact that it had about 1 150 worth
destroyed in the high school fare last
inter. Last spring another start
had to be made, and it will be some
time before a full outfit is again ac
cumulated. Through the supervision of tho
teachers, both in practice at home
and when away to meet opposing
teams, cleaner sport and greater pro
ficiency has been secured. Througn
the rules of the association all prop
erty when once secured has been care
fully accounted for and saved from
year to year, thus preventing tbe de
spoiling Ji tbe entire outfit by tbe
outgoing class at
the end of each
school year, as was formerly common.
