Si The Students' Farmers' Club One of the most Interesting and in structive organizations connected with the Kansas Agricultural College la a fanners' club composed of students In terested along agricultural lines. This club meets weekly, and has a member ship of about seventy-flve. Subjects pertaining to the farm, as soil, grain, stock, dairy, horticulture, landscape gardening, veterinary science, botany, entomology, chemistry and even domes tic science are discussed. These discus sions bring out points of great value to the young man who expects to return to the farm; and not only that, but the expe rience he gets by being placed on the pro gram enables him to. express to others his own thoughts and give them the benefit of his knowledge and experience. At times the club secures the services of some veteran farmer or agriculturist outside of the college to discuss some special subject. During the present school term the programs have been ar ranged with a view of devoting one even ing each to certain phases of farm work. For Instance, one evening will be de voted to grain growing, another to beef cattle, others to horticulture, domestic science, chemistry, botany, bacteriology, dairy, etc. This arrangement of subects la proving very satisfactory and in structive, and the young man who at tends these meetings with eyes and ears open, cannot fall to learn much that will be of lasting benefit to him in after years. This kind of an organization should be a component part of every Agricultural College. The young man leaving college for the active duties of farm life will usually put In practice what he has learned, and his example will serve as an object lesson to his neigh bors. He will also realize the benefit to be derived from an exchange of experi ences, and will be an enthusiastic sup porter of farmers' institutes, farmers' clubs, or meetings of any kind that will result in benefit to the farmer. It is impossible to estimate what an Intelli gent, enthusiastic young man may ac complish when he determines to push things. D. H. OTIS.
