The executive committee of the Illi
nois farmers' institute that met in
Springfield last week called a special
meeting of the full Imnril of directors
for Thursday, April 3, to elect a scCt
retarysuieriitendeiit to fill the pres
The committee recommended to the
directors the importance'of instruc
tion in agriculture in the rural
schools and that this may le made u
special feature of institute work this
yea r. '
Directors II. F. Wyman, II. (5. East
erly and F. I. Mann, the committee on
status and progress of the work the
past year, reported as follows:
"We find there have lieen held in
the state during the past year 111
county and congressional institutes,
beinir a irain of four over the ire
vious year. The average attendance
at institutes has increased from :;)
in icon to ::T1 in 1001. making a total
gain in attendance in the stateof
O.'.iOO people. We find 1hat a higher
grade of talent has been employed in
the selection of seakers. and the
questions discussed of n much more
. "The institutes from all parts of
the state report greatly i increased in
terest in the work. The libraries
sent out bv the state institute are at
trading much attention and the de
mand for them is constantly inerea
"The scholarships in the University
of Illinois college of agriculture
granted to the Illinois farmers' in
st it ute seem destined to help make :
wonderful revolution in agricultural
methods and are eagerly sought for
by young men from all parts of the
"Secretory A. 15. Hostette is main-
Iv responsible for the advance that
has been niade. We find his office af
fairs kept in the most systematic and
orderly manner and we believe the
prosei'ous condition of the institute
of Illinois are largely due to his en
eraretie efforts in their behalf." i
It stands alone, it towers above.
