Demonstration Train

.Weotliigx.
The visit of tho Salt Lako Route
and Agricultural College demonstra
tion train hero last Monduy wus a
great success. All dny crowds visited
iho curs and cxuin'urd tho exhibits,
.vhlch wcro full of Interest.
Tho silo modolB woro thu chief
points of Interest, and will probably
, result In boiiio of our local farmers
adopting this method of storing sum
mer feed for winter uso. The differ
ent measuring wlors woro also InliT
PBting, particularly to the high achool
students, who visited tho train In a
body, Professor McLaughlin, who
spoke at ono of tho meetings, advo
cated that ovory farmor construct
measuring wlors- bo us to tell just how
much vater was uacd,
i Tho students anil many furmern
! woro deeply Interested In tho many
1 kinds of grains and erasecs exhibited.
Tho stock probably created moro In
terest than anything connected with
iho visit. Thero wcro two fine speci
mens of Uerkshlro and Poland China
plgu, a Shorthorn cow and a Jersey
mtlkor with a record of 7C79.G pounds
of milk nnd 108 pounds of butter in
ono year.
Tho Hereford bull shown weighed
but Bovcnty pounds less than a ton
and Is less than threo years of ago.
The prlzo whlto fnco steer was of
I'iirtlrulor lutcicat In tho stock judg
ing contest, as it had taken tho grand
championship prizes in n half dozen
eastern fat stock shows.
At moil i, number of local Rtoclriu'n
brought their animals to tho Co-op.
yard to bo judged. This probably
gnvo moro Information to local farm-
nrs than anything connected with the ' v fllra.M
