THE MANTI FARMERS' CLUB.
To the Editor Doscrct Farmer:
While at Manti last Friday, Aug.
Sth, I called on the secretary of The
Farmers' Club of Manti and had a
very interesting conversation. I
learned from him that this association
had been the; means of ibencfiting the
farmers in many ways. They -arc do
ing better farming than ever before,
and arc using more scientific methods
than were formerly used.
Through the efforts of this club a
system of rotation is being tried, a
thing which hitherto has been un
known there. Peas Ivavc been intro
duced as one of the crops to be
grown in this system of rotation. Up
until this year farmcri have only
grown crops on half of their land,
wi.ilc the other half lay fallow. By
the present method of rotation they
expect to use all their land every year.
Previous to this year Manti has not
produced enough potatoes to supply
the loaal demand. Now the secretary
is looking for a good market where
he can dispose of several carloads for
the farmers. They arc iall raising one
variety (the rural New Yorker) for
the market.
This organization has been able to
get twine, for the binders, at almost
rost this year, thus making a great
I saving for the farmers. Through the
1 rganization the seed potatoes and
I I)eas which were introduced were ob
H tained at greatly reduced rates.
I The secretary advises me, that
H though they have done a great deal
1 o benefit the farmers this year, they
I re just beginning, and with the cx-
1 erience of tfic past will be able to do
m great deal more in the future.
It is indeed a pleasure to visit far-
iers when one can get them inter-
