VOLUME XX. Farmers’ Institute. (by oar special correspondent) The Farmer’s Institute at Lamar last Friday and Saturday bad but a slim attendance the first day, and not nearly so large as it should have been the second day. J. K. Steven son was selected as chairman. Hon. C C. Goodale, in a most felicitous manner made the address of welcome, responded to by the Hon. Fred P. Johnson of the state agricultural college. Prof. *T. W. Carlyle then took up the subject of Dairying and stock* raising, and it is to be regretted that every progressive farmer in the coun ty was not present, especially the young men. It was replete with valuable information. His knowl edge on these matters is broad and he has the faculty of imparting it. He said, altogether too much dairy ing was done on horse back and it was time to quit it. He said that an ideal green pasture for cows could be had by drilling about six pounds grass seed on each acre of alfalfa needed for that purpose. It solves what has been heretofore b most difficult pioblem. The question box elicited much profitable information. At the afternoon session Prof. Gillett talked on spraying for the codling moth and other injuiious in sects. He advised using srsenates instead of Paris green or old time formulas. He said, should spruy as soon as the bloom hud fullen and then again about July 10th. W. S. Ellenberger one of the prominent east Bent county farmers and beet growers followed, giving much intrinsic advice as to soil se lection and culture of beets. Had never seen a field made too rich to grow beets. He also recommended fall plowing, alfalfa land preferable Prof. Olin was of the opinion that the beet sugar industry in this state was but an infant one. That the Prowers county sugar was equal to if not superior to any manufactured in the state. W. B' Ebberts of Rocky Ford, ex president of the state beet growers association, told of how he and his neighbors grew successfully large crops of beets, he said he soaked the land before plowing or planting Would fall plow whenever possible; work harrow and level the land and firm it to the extent that in walking over it would make no deep er impression than the thickness of shoe soles. Time to plant about April first and plenty the seed about \\ inches in depth. If one leaned on 40 acres of beets for a living make two or three plantings, rows 20 inches apart with beets about 10\ inches apart, wben thinned in row. Water them twice and try to avoid flooding, and would furrow between every two rows. Thought we would improve quality and tonnage if our seed could be grown in America. The address by Miss Theodosia Ammons and Miss Ida Tilson at the woman’s meeting at the Presbyter ian church was listened to most at | tentively by a goodly number of ladies and a rare fund of timely sug gestioms concerning household duties and domestic science was very instructive. That more could not be present to hear and learn was regret ted by every one present. At the evening session the ing features were an address by M. J. McMillin on the Arkansas Valley as he found it nearly 25 years ago, which was quite a contrast to the present conditions and very interest ing to all, especially those who have come here of recent years. Also an address by Aug. F. Buck, of Grana da, on Cantaloupe Growing, which was considered one of the best feat ares of the institute and will be pub lished in full in the Agricultural College paper, as giving the very bast facts and instructions in regard to this important branch of agricul ture. Miss Ida Tilson in her poultiy talk convinced all that she had had large experience in handling profit ably the various breeds. Her favor ites as egg producers were the white Leghorn and Minorcas. Said a hen W that would not lay 80 eggs a year was not profitable. The cost of boarding should not exceed 60 cents a hen per year. When asked the difference between a hen and a man The Lamar Register We are £oing to £ive away the fine AUTOMOBILE and CHINA SET which we offered during the Holidays but* our patrons failed to take away $25 Each are Valuable Presents worth $25 and will go to some of our customers absolutely free.

Advised giving either a va riety of feed to keep them tractable, and to obtain most satisfactory re sults. Mrs. L. A. Cook’s paper on prac ticol turkey raising was heartily re ceived. You may not succeed in raising several hundred turkeys each year as she does, by following her plain and careful instruction, but it should encourage those who heard her, that they can do better than in former efforts to grow this grand and profitable olass of poultry. Prof. Olin on seed selection, was ineeed a valuable address. Hiß sug gestions if followed would add maoy thousands of dollars in an increased yield to the farmers of Prowers oonnty alone, and advised procuring the best seed though they cost twice or so more than ordinary seed. Advised thorough grading of seeds of all kinds by every farmer by the free use of fanning mills, as the light and weak in germ wonld be thrown oat and the strong and pro ductive give yield and profit. Mr. C. B. Thoman on the subject of insects, pests and their extermin ation brought forth much beneficial information, and a spirited discus sion suggested that light by lantern or torch placed over a pan of water in the fields at night when the moths were in flight bring distraction to many thousands each night and this lessens the worm brood sure to fol low. Am sorry we can not find spaoe for the many good features not enumer ated that were brought out in the addresses and discussions and wonld say that onr stay at home farmers missed one of the riohest and most valuable treats it was onr privilege to enjoy. Much oredit should be given to M. J. McMillin for his untiring ef forts and for his earnestness and the time bestowed by him to make the institute the success that it was.
