H The surest cure in the world- for

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

H sound suspiciously like Hubbard's Es-
H say on Silence.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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."
