Happenings of the Week
in Minnesota.
Hundreds of men from Minnesota
farms, and large numbers of women
from Minnesota homes, are expected
to attend Farmers' and Homemakers'
week at University Farm, St. Paul,
Jan. 3-8, 1916. The members of the
committee at the College of Agricul­

total of 35,376,000 bushels. The esti­
mated value of the crop on the farm
was $17,688,000.

fied to vote on the proposition were
