IMPLEMENTS Should you judge the farming operations of Delta county by the size of the letters at the head of this article you would conclude it was done on a large scale, and that is just exactly the impression we want to make. And it is intelligent farm ing, too. Delta county farmers want to keep their farms up to the highest efficiency, and one way of doing this is to fer tilize. Hut some of them are still piling the manure on a JB || sled, hauling it out and spreading by hand, whereas they should get an International Manure Spreader. It will save its cost in one season in time alone; it is under perfect con trol of the operator, and is guaranteed to be ahead of anything else on the market. Let us show you one.

The Delta Business Men's Association has taken the bull by the horns and de cided to do business on a business basis. At the regular semi-monthly meeting, at the court house Monday even'ng, the Association instructed its board of di rectors to employ a salaried secretary, said official to devote his entire time to the business of the Association, which is to build up Delta and its contiguous territory. It is the plan to keep the secretary occupied in carrying on cor respondence with capitalists relative to the erection of a beet sugar factory, a canning factory, evaporating plant and any other industries which can be profit ably conducted. It will also be the business of the secretary to assist the packing company in interesting a prac tical packer in taking hold of the well equipped plant already established in Delta. The secretary will send out literature to people in the east and can, if he will, be a tremenduously busy man. The reason for employing a man to give his entire time to the work is to keep the work going when the aver age business man turns his attention to his own business. Mr. John J. Travis has been secre tary of the Association and has made a most excellent official, but he could not give up a larger part of his time “for the good of the cause,” than he has been doing, and in fact it was an impo sition to ask him to give as much. At a meeting of the board of direc tors, held on Tuesday evening, Percival E. Coombe was elected to the secre taryship. Mr. Coombe has been a res ident of Delta for many years. He knows the country like a book and be lieves in its future with heart and soul. He has already assumed his duties and is working hard in giving proper atten tion to a quantity of accumulated busi ness. The Association will rent a room in which the secretary will have his office I and where regular meetings will be I held. A display of products will be kept at these headquarters so that the stranger can be introduced to the pro ductiveness of the country immediately upon his arrival. It is also the plan to ultimately use these headquarters as a public comfort station, such as was ad vocated in a splendid letter to the In DEPENDENT in a recent issue. This in substance is the arrangement as outlined by the Association and its board of directors. There is a great work to do in promoting the interests of the community. It is a work that should be attended to anil not neglect ed, but which necessarily is neglected if left to the tender mercies of those who have more private atTairs to attend to than they can get done. In order to raise funds to meet the increased expense, membership dues have been raised to SI.OO |>er month. The Association should be able to ac complish a great work this year.
