State Board. Clftat EttthiniMm ffas fteM llle Striking Feature of the Meetings! --Plans for January. I •. -1-. 1 •, .w J. I E. Kaufman, Sec. Farmers* ttilti tutes: The conductor of the farmers' institutes handed me some notes re garding the December institutes with a request that they be elaborated and given The Forum. About, the only change I have made in the notes handed me by Mr. Gfeeley has been to include something of the speakers and the various subjects treat ed by them. The farmers' institutes have beert a success from the opening meeting at Fingal oh Dec. I to the last session at Wahpeton, Dec. 19. At times the weather was severe and stormy but not a single afternoon or evening ses sion failed to materialize on this ac count. Many of the meetings were large and the halls crowded but in some of the more sparsely settled sec tions and a few times when the weather was unfavorable the attendance Was small. Even in the latter meetings those in attendance frequently came long distances and were not only rep resentative farmers but representative men. The records show that about 1,635 different people, attended the in stitutes while the total attendance at all the sessions was nearly 3,000. The interest shown by those present was most encouraging to the speakers. Many questions along with the person al and local experiences of the farmers added much to the value ofthe meet ings. All kinds of stock growing at tracted much attention and there seem ed to be a general disposition to grow more of it and breed and feed it bet ter. During this series of institutes M. F. Greeley, editor of The Dakota Farmer, acted as conductor and discussed the questions of "Poultry and Economical Meat Production." On the latter sub ject Mr. Greeley gave particular at tention to the growing and feeding' of sheep believing it possible for the North Dakota f&rmer to produce huit ton fully as cheap if not cheaper ttyan it was possible to make beef or poyrk. He called particular attention to jfhe wastefulness of allowing the sh£ep feeders at South St. Paul to make sniall fortunes out of North Dakota shiep and North Dakota feed. A. K. Bush of Dover, Minn., qis cussed the questions of "Hog Raising" and "Beef Cattle," using his own fariras at Dover, where he feeds fr6m fifty? to 100 head of cattle and 100 head of hefgs, as an illustration. The subject of "Dairy Husbandry" was covered by L. D. Stilson of York, Neb., apractical dairyman of that state. Much interest was shown in this sub ject at various points along the Soo and in a few places creamery meetings were held at the close of the institute with indications that there will be a number of creameries built in the early spring. Mr. Stilson paid particular at tention to selecting and testing the SURETY BONDS for persons occupying positions of trust.

"The Draft Ijorse" for the North Dakota Farmer, His Care and Man agement," was thoroughly discussed by E. S. DeLancey df Valley City. Mr. DeLancey is a new man in farmers' in stitute work but with the large fund of valuable information at his command He was able to present the subject in a pleasing and interesting manner to the farmers. The institute board has noW made arrangements with Mr. De Lancey to accompany the corps the rest of the winter. Q. A. Thompson, superintendent of the Edgeley experiment station, dis cussed the subjects of "Rotation of Crops," "Soil Moisture," "Tillage," etc. These with "Forage Crops" and "Pas ture Grass" seemed to be of the great est interest and brought out the most questions and experiences. It was also a surprise to note the interest in potato and corn growing and still a greater surprise to the in stitute corps to see the corn and po tatoes grown. Mr. Bush, being a practical potato grower handled this subject in the best possible manner which never failed to elicit interest on the part of the farmer. At the Milttor institute Mr. Horton reported a yield of 240 bushels to the acre while at a' number of meetings yields of 150 and 200 bushels were re ported. In a number of instances po tatoes were exhibited at the institutes that were simply perfect, besides being absolutely free from rot or scab of any kind. The Early Ohio and Hebron and other standard varieties were the kinds most frequently found, although "Hun dred Fold" seemed to have the greatest yields to its credit. Mr. Horton's po tatoes were all of this variety. The corn grown and ripened this trying corn year was a surprise to the entire institute corps. At many of the insti tutes samples were exhibited that would have done credit to almost any corn section. The corn brought into the meeting at Wahpeton was exception ally good. Ears of dent corn fully ripened and over one foot long were included in a number of collections. The entire institute force was unani mous in its praise of the interest and enthusiasm shown in this series of in stitutes and their treatment by the farmers in attendance. These meetings promise to be of inestimable value to the state and the interest in the work is rapidly increasing. Another series of meetings begin Jan. 4 and will continue until the Grain Growers' Convention opens. The speakers will be M. F. Greeley, con ductor, assisted by Mrs. Bertha Dahl Laws, and Messrs. A. K. Bush, E. S. DeLancey, T. A. Hoverstad and Col. R. A. Wilkinson, the Shorthorn and Hereford breeder of Crookston, Minn. This is a sample of the letters re ceived: Barney. N. D., Dec. 19.— Farmers' Institute Board, Fargo, N. D.—Gentlemen: We take this oppor tunity to express our thanks and ap preciation to you, for the valuable fund of information meted out to the peo ple of Barney and vicinity by the insti tute speakers. These gentlemen in turn, gave interesting and valuable talks along their respective lines, cov ering farming, stock raising, tree cul ture, etc. The institute, which is new to this immediate locality, was a marked suc cess, and has been followed by many flattering remarks by our farmer friends and the desire seems to be unanimous, for a repetition of the in stitute here during the year 1904, We don't wish to be selfish but it is our candid opinion that much good can be done in this vicinity through institute work and we trust you will give our ap plication for another meeting to be held here next year careful consideration. Again thanking you for the courtesy extended in the meeting of Dec. 16, we beg to remain yours very truly, A. Kressin. Committee— C. C. Moffet. W. F. Rhea.
