FARM CUJB HBD
Dual Purpose Cow ably Dis
cussed at Session of Niag
.Niagara, N. D.. Dec. 12.—The first
tncctlng In December of the Niagara
Btimvnee Agricultural club had un un
usually large attendance. The M. W.
A. hall where the meetings are held
was well flUed and many could find
standing room only. The abundant
and appetising lunch prepared by the
lunch committee proved entirely ade
The program was opened with
music. A chor.us from Shawnee con
sisting of Mr- and Mrs. Urness, Anna
Ness. Christine Moen, Uldrlck Moen,
Frode Hemmingson and Mrs. Kolding
rendered a number of selections which
were much appreciated. Mrs. Ernest
Kirk read "The Christening."
The dual cow was discussed by
David Kirk. He emphasized the fact
that the average farmer of today
needs stock to restore his farm to its
former fertility. Farmers in other
countries, he stated, have been forced
lo resort to cattle raising to redeem
their lands and the time has come
when the North Dakota farmer must
follow in their footsteps. The speak
er suggested the Shorthorn, the Browu
Swiss and the Red Poll as acceptable
for general purpose cattle.
Andrew Drengson in his talk on
feeding cattle brought out the point
that it is not necessary that a farmer
should have expensive barns and
standard bred stock in order to make
cattle raising a profitable business.
Of late years nearly every farmer has
harvested a goodly supply ofrwild oat.-,
and Mr. Drengson said these could
be turned into good butter and beef.
Corn, while being fine feed, helps to
clean the land.
Krnost Kirk in talking on the sub
ject of milking and feeding cows, said
the hired help problem was the great
est hinderance to the dairy business.
A farmer to bo entirely successful in
this line must specialize in it. Tie
ndvised cement floors in barns, the
use of a night yard as well as a dav
pasture, the use of the Bahcock milk
tester and recommended that each
farmer should make his own butter
and sell the surplus cream.
Henry Fink gave a short, pithy and
Instructive talk on feeding and raising
calves. After the third week he ad
vised feeding ground oats and separ
ator milk. This ration, he stated, pro
duced strong, healthy calf.
At. the meeting: a superintendent.
Mrs. Harry Jopling, was appointed to
organize patron teachers' clubs in the
surrounding rural schools.

Brother Bob was just of age, and
a civil engineer, or soon to be one,
and he was both smart and lovely.
There were other brothers in the
world, but no other brother Bobs.
Girls laud their brothers and try to
make matches and don't succeed once
in 60 times.
Miss Addle liked smart men. She
had been hearing of Bob Harmon tor
the last two years, and now she was
to see him alive.
He would be tall and have a pro
fessional look about him, and when
she wandered arm in arm with him
across the meadows farmers driving
past would stop their teams to stand
up in their wagons to whisper:
"Gosh, but can you beat that!"

On the fifth day of her visit, and
while Miss Molly was taking her mu

Alleged Horse Thief, Brought from
Canada, is Bound Over.
Minot, N. D., Dec. 12.—At a hear
ing held today, Arthur Snyder, charg
ed with horse stealing, was bound
over to the district court for trial.
Snyder was arrested at Regina, Can

"O, I don't know," replied Bob an
hour later when thanked. "I just hap

Long legs! Miss Addie smiled.
Then she became serious. Was she
near-sighted? Was Bob Harmon en
titled to be called "long legs" instead
of 'Stuck legs?" It might be.
At any rate, she measured him with
her eye and decided that he had
grown an inch in the last 24 hours.
It was in the middle of the third
week that the climax came. The
three were out in the auto when they
enoountered an automobile with two
young men riding in it.
They were heard for some distance
singing a ribald song. As they drew
nearer they became more boisterous,
and seeing two girls and a small boy
in the other machine they halted theirs
