H ' U m Talk about the farmer learning his m business these days. Why, actually, M even .his fences . arc getting well M posted. B o M We wonder if there is- anything else 1 besides this glorious autumn needed M to convince the most skeptical -that M Utah has the greatest climate in the H world. . M The contributions from a great 1 many of the members of our staff H sound suspiciously like Hubbard's Es- H say on Silence. H o M When you hear a man knocking M things during weather like we have B been having, you can know for a cer- m tainty that it is cither his liver nr his B head that is out. Pretty sure to be a M btd'Hvtr too, for no man -who has a B 1im4 would do a thin like that. Masculinity for the last thousand years has, and for the ncyt million years has, and for the next million shrine of the girl who can make biscuits. In journalistic work, it is not the man who knows how to write that makes the hit, it is the man who knows how to quit when he has said what ho wants to. o Short courses in our various Indus trial schools begin in a short time. Better prepare to have your boy be taught how to be a farmer and your daughter taught how to cook biscuits. That is the trend of education these days. o A contempory says: "There arc a great many disadvantages in going out and buying dairy cows. Best grow them yourself, under your own eye, if possible." Impossible place to grow a cow. She would' obstruct the view. 7-5 o Mr. F. D.' Farrcll, Government Ex pert in change of Dry Farm Experi mentation al Ncphi, left last -week for ' his winter's work in Washington, D. C. Farrcll's summer's work has been unusually successful and wc look for some interesting material in bulletin form, to appear from his office in Washington in the near future. And the good work goc on. The Assistant Editor was down in Millard County last week and saw hundreds of acres of the best dry farming land in the world being broken up between Leamington and Oak City. The land around Fool Creek country some day - fs going to rival the great "Ridge" south of Nephi. o The Mt. Pleasant Pyramid recom mends the following as a remedy to avoid serious spells of illness, and as a sure preventative for typhoid: "Drink strong hot lemonade twice a week of an evening." The Pyramid man has got the makings of a good remedy there, but it is stated wrong, and there is too much to it. Wc rec ommend the following alteration which if not strictly up to W. C. T. standards at least has the advantage of great popularity. We suggest he put the words "strong0 and "hot" be fore "drink" and cut out the lemonade. And now Dick Palfrcyman, the en thusiastic horse breeder and exhibitor of Springvillc has a plan on for- the establishment in Utah County of a large importing and breeding estab lishment. Palfrcyman thinks in terms of horses and the major part of his attention will Ibc directed in their di rection. At the present time we do not know what Palfrcyman plans, but arc sure that with a man of his knowl edge and experience nothing but suc cess can await his efforts. Wc anx iously await details. From far away Canada comes the report of one more Utah trained toy who is making good in his profession. At the annual Fair held in Alberta re cently, Mr. Don Skauscn, a boy who has received his training in the Ag ricultural Department of the B. Y. University of Provo, won virtually every big prize offered for select wheat. Among his two big leads were "First for Turkey Red!, both threshed and in the head, and First for Red Fife,"' both in head and threshed. The Deseret Farmer extends con gratulations to Mr. Skauscn. o Our Editor-in-Chief at the present writing, together with Dr. Ball of the Experiment Station, and President Stohl of the Board of Trustees of the Agricultural College, arc somewhere in the Middle West inspecting Ex periment Stations and filling up on ideas that will be useful to the farm ers in this section of the globe. Mer rill, Ball and Stohl certainly make up a trio that ought to capture and bring back to us anything useful they find lying around loose back there. They want to watch him closely or Merrill is liable to come with the precipitation of that section. It is larger than ours and our editor could use it beautifully in liis dry farm business. Wc offer this suggestion merely for the protection of our east ern friends. . The following few lines arc from the pen of Mrs. A. J. Stanley bf Lin coln, Nebraska. Mrs. Stanley wrote them in answer to the inquiry from a Boston firm, "As to what consti tutes success." Tlxe lady received first prize in the contest and two hun dred and fifty dollars for her' trouble. We don't know w'here 'she got ' her stuff, it smells suspiciously 'like Hub- bard, but that does not matter. It is 1 the thought in it that we care about. I Read it, think it over: 1 "He has achieved success who has lived cll, laughed often, and loved imtchifcwho has gained the respect of intelligent men, and the love of little childVcn; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who has left the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a per fect poem or a rescued soul; who has never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who has always looked for the best in others, and given the best he had; whose fife was an inspiration; whose memory a benediction." HORSEMEN PROPOSE ORGANI ZATION IN UTAH COUNTY. There is a movement on foot south of here that will have for is culmi nations the organization into a work ing body, of the horsemen of Utah County. The association will work with the State Board of Horse Com missioners in the upbuilding of Utah's great horse industry and it will also fe affiliate with the larger national in- I stitutibns. fl The plan means a great deal to the horsemen in that section of the coun try. It means "get together and pull together for Utah County," it means to advertise to the world what Utah County has in this particular line, it means that Utah County horsemen to an individual, will behind the State Board of Horse Commissioners. It is meeting with the glad hand down there everywhere. Dr. Spalding and Professor Peterson, Veterinarian and Animal Husbandman, respectively of the Agricultural School of the B. Y. University, together with officials of the Provo Commercial Club arc working on the matter and we look 1 to sec it come to a speedy head. Wc welcome the developing or ganization and say to Utah, "Give us more of such institutions." FOR SALE. Arid land in Cedar Valley; 520 acres, adjoining Cedar Fort field; J4 mile from town and railroad station; $5,000 part cash, balance time. Address, SAMUEL STARK, 7.30 S. West Temple. St., S. L.
