The circulation of books in the school and public library is greater this year than in previous years. This marks a step in advancement of the community. The value of the public library is not realized by the adults The “grown ups” are setting a good example if they use the books in the library, for in this way they will induce more children to be on the list of patrons. tVlauy new books are ready for circu lation in school and town libraries.

Forest County Forest County was a forest originsll y but that wonderful crop of nature is l fast disappearing and at present we find vast tracts of cut-over lands and a sprinkling of farming communities here and there over the .county. Three years ago there were 550 far mers located in ttie county and today the figure is close to 770. Not such a sensational increase, but just a steady influx which means progress as time passes. The county possesses a loam soil which spells success in the agriculture industry to those who make proper use of the eoil resources. Many of the farmers are just beginn ers and the cow has her place with each family through necessity, because dairying is and will be the most im portant type of farming in Forest County. One faet will strike an observing tourist and that is that the county is divided rather markedly into the east ern and western halves. The east side of the county caters to the Holstein breed of cattle and the western half to the Guernsey breed, and not very man y herds have cattle having all the col ors of the rainbow. Th is fact has come about by the introduction of registered pure bred sires so that most of the herds are either grade Helsteins or Guernseys. Two years ago 65 per cent of the far mers were using pure bred sires on their herds, and althougn figures are not availadle the percentage is a great deal higher now. The affair of conditions spells only one thing and that is better dairy cows and success to the farmer. During 1920, thirty pure bred heifers were introduced into the county through the medium of the Boy’s and Girl’s Calf Club. Tnis was a larger number of pure bred animals introduced than was the total amount of all pure bred females owned within the county. All the heifer calves were reared by the youngsters, aud who can determine what this line of effort will mean for the future prosperity of Forest county? On May Ist., 1920, the first Cow Test ing Association within the county com menced operations among the farmers of the western part of the county. At the end of the year results showed that 23 per cent of the cows belonging to the Cow Testing Association were “Star Boarders” and “beefed” as un profitable. The testing work has put new life and vigor into the dairy game and many a member has become a much better farmer as a result. As only 8.6 per cent of all land in the county is in farms, it can readily be seen that the problem of clearing up more land for farming purposes is the prime factor considered. For the past several years, farmers pooled their orders for stump and rock blasting explosives, thereby being ab le to buy in carload lots and obtaining the explosives at low prices. Without any question the potato erop is the most important cash crop in the county and every possible effort is exerted with farmers to grow this crop at the least possible cost and pro duce the largest crop of the best qual ity. Many other lines of progress are be ing made by forming organizations be sides the Boy’s and Girl's Calf Clab, all tending toward more efficient, satis factory and profitable farming in For est county.—Antigo Journal.
