Carter county has hud tho services
of a county agent for several years, in
fact from almost the beginning of
' the system, and the agent has been a
; big factor in bringing about bettex
I conditions on too farm and better
methods of fornring.
The work of the county agent is no
.sinecure ho mu.it bo a man who un
derstands people,, know whereof he
' speaks and .be oblo at all times to
, t,"lv true and direct Information to
; the farmers upon all subjects In
! which they are interested. Such a man
j is a valuable asset to the community
, and worth every dollar the state and
'county pays him for his salary.
Agents Well Informed
Carter county has been extremely
' fortunate in this respect, inasmuch
lbs all agents who have been assign
ed here have been men who were
well up on the duties and require
menta of their office, and the labor
l they have accomplished is very evi
1 dent to thoso who knew conditions as
1 they existed on the average farm be-1
lloro the work was started. I
