During the fourteenth ballot Bryan

CASSELTON, June 29— Yesterday
was a hard bot day for the people on
the Farmers' Institute special. Put
it was a profitable one. The train
covered the Cooperstown branch,
which is without doubt one of the
prettiest and best farming parts of
At Rogers there was one of the best

town of its population. In dress and
manners these people compare well
with, the cities and the questions ask

For many miles around the country
was covered by automobile rides, and
the soil and crops closely examined.
The stock farms of Frank Sanford, C.
J. Christianson and others werevis
ited and many fine horses and good
cattle were seen.
A Fine Farm and Crop Rotation.
The Sanford farm has about 220g
farnf 500"acres in flax, 750 wheat, 300
oats, 200 corn, 75 alfalfa, 100 timothy,
25 broom grass and the lauds needed
for house, barns, gardens, etc. The
buildings are good and the stock on
the farm consists of 46 head of hors
es, 150 head Aberdeen Angus cattle,
the same number of Duroc Jersey
hogs and other stock.
There has been a system of crop
rotation on this farm for about fif
teen years and the yields last year
were for wheat 17 bushels, flax 12,
oats 50 and the corn crop was about
Just Changed Ownership.
In west of the Sanford farm was
seen a beautiful herd of stock cattle
consisting of 55 in number. Inquiry
revealed the act that the cattle were
on the Christianson farm but had just
been sold by Mr. Christianson to Ed.
Land in this neighborhood is very
fertile but should have careful rota
tion and much grass as it is, in places,
inclined to blow.
Beautiful Groves, Large
Barns and Good Houses.
From Rogers to Cooperstown is
seen one of the most beautiful groves,
the largest barns and finest houses in
the state. It looks like the most fer
tile part of Indiana or Illinois where
the farmers are largely interested in
the stock business. Land is worth
540 to $75 per acre.
There is much stock around Coop
erstown but not as much as there
ought to be. E. C. Butler, of Fin
ley, is engaged in raising short horn
cattle for breeding purposes. He
says that the demand now for good
breeding animals is far beyond the
supply and that if the people are not
very careful there will soon be a ser
ious shortage of the meat supply and
that prices are going to be higher

credit cannot be given these people.
The people of Buffalo made a good
appearance and turned out in large
numbers to greet the train. The band
was out and rendered good music.
The crops around Buffalo are fine.
Barley is beading out and other grains
show up equally well. The ground
is now beginning to dry out the surf

good. But at one place in the field

The party will be composed of some

ST. LOUIS, June 29.—"St. Louis is

The Mound City has climatic condi

winters alow the road tests to be
made every day in the year.
It was certainly fascinating to see
the cars to be tested start out on
their long grueling trip. The immense
elevator brought them down from the
factory testing room. They had just

tory test—one day the motors were

another twenty four hours under their
own power by gas"oline—then the as

by gasoline under their own power.
