AT COURT HOUSE JAN. EON.
There will be a farmers conven
tion convened here on the 20th of
this month for the purpose of meet
ing Prof. Tindsley, soil physicist
of the agricultural college and ag
ricultural station at Las Cruces.
This meeting will be held at the
Court House at the hour of the
day of the 20th which will be ad
vertised in a later issue of this
Prof. Tindsley writes the news
that he is very anxious to have a
large number of farmers attend this
meeting and he also has requested
us to say in the announcement ot
this meeting that he desires a small
sample of each of the various pro
ducts the farmers produced last
year and that the manner ot seed
ing and cultivation be explained
by the individual who brings the
sample and a general discussion
of the best mode of planting and
tilling of the soil will be thoroughly
gone through with. This is a
matter that should be promptly at
tended to by every farmer in Quay
county and if they will meet Prof.
Tindsley here on the aoth Inst.,
much good may be derived from it.
The advertising alone that the ag
ricultural college will give Quay
county through this convention
and the exhibition of our farm
products where Prot. Tinsley can
study them will be an excellent
means of advertising our town and
