THE WINTER SERIES OF SES
SIONS—MANY ATTENDED MEET
INGS HELD ALL OVER STATE
Preparations are rapidly going for
ward at the agricultural college for
the opening of the winter session of
the farmers' institute which will open
Dec. 7 and the prospects for the meet
ings are very promising. Supt. T. A.
Hoverstad of the institute corps said
In regard to the matter that a com
plete schedule of meetings would soon
"Last year 89 institutes were held
in the state of North Dakota," said
Mr. Hoverstad. "In 233 sessions there
was a total attendance of 38,000 peo
ple. This large attendance can be at
tributed to several causes. Roads, as
a rule, were excellent. Stormy days
were very few. Bad roads and stormy
weather always reduce the attendance
at the meetings. The business men
of the town took unusuc.1 interest in
the institutes. They helped in the ad
vertising. Very often free dinners
were served to the farmers who at
tended the meetings.
"The institute season will open about
one month earlier than last year. We
have now on file about 70 applications.
In order to hold meetings in all sec
tions of the state every year it will
be necessary to make the institute
season as long as possible. Profesor
Thoma Shaw of Minnesota has already
been engaged for this winter's circuit
as a special lecturer. We consider
ourselves fortunate in securing his
services as other states were anxious
to have his name on their list of In
"Institutes will be conducted on the
same general plan as in previous years.
New topics for discussion will be In
troduced. A new edition of the in
stitute annual is in process of prepar
ation. Articles are being prepared es
pecially for this edition which will be
ready for distribution by Dec. 1.
"The schedule for the winter circuit
will soon be made out. All towns de
siring an institute the coming winter
should send in their applications as
soon as possible. Commercial and
farmers' clubs, private individuals or
organizations may send in requests
for meetings and the same will be
considered by the board. It is desirable
to hold meetings in localities where
none were held last year, so as to dis
tribute the work over the state as
much as possible."

The name Farmers' Supply
House is a misnomer in a way,
as, while the bulk of the trade
Is from farmers, there is also
a large demand for the pure
food goods at ten to thirty per

'Another secret of the success of
this house and its growing busi

co-operative profit sharing
plan, whereby a system for the

costly premiums. A great

CHRONIC DRUNK AND VAGRANT
AND WILL 8ERVE TIME IN TH£
Peter Shea is his name and for the
second time Inside of two weeks he
hobbled into Judge Ryan's court this
morning on a pair of crutches, charged
with being drunk and a vagrant.
He is a man about 50 years of age.
A physical wreck from excessive drink
ing, penniless, friendless and appar
ently almost hopeless. The first time
he was arraigned before Judge Ryan
he was quite defiant. He told his
story, which has been substantiated in
the principal facts, stating that he had
his feet severely froxen at Michigan
City last March, that he had been un
able to work since then because the
wound on one foot failed to heal prop
erly and Is now a running sore.
The police officials told him to go to
the Cass county officials and get trans
portation to Nelson county, as this is
the county to which he belongs as a
public charge, according to his story.
The man promised to do this and
Judge Ryan gave him his freedom, but
he evidently did not like to tear him
self away from Fargo and the vicinity
of Moorhead, for be was picked up
again last evening In a'terrible state
This morning he was "down and
out" and when Judge Ryan read the
charge of vagrancy to him he pleaded
guilty at once and was sentenced to
serve thirty days in the county Jail.
He will receive proper care and medi
cal attention there and may be braced
up at the expiration sufficiently to
keep himself straight.
