Each an,d every one of these places
extends to you a cordial and welcome
invitation to attend the sessions of
the institute most convenient to you
As speakers at the Institutes we
are sending Mr. J. E. Eastgate, of
Larimore, N. D., one of.the leading
beef, sheep and alfalfa growers of
the state, who is also thoroughly
posted on such subjects as crop rota
tions, soil fertility, production of
feeds, etc. Also E. W. Smith of Park
ers Prairie, a practical farmer, who
has for years specialized in pork, clo
ver, and potatoes.
It is hoped that every farmer- who
can -possibly do so will attend some
of the sessions and plan for the other
members of his family to attend with
him. There are no charges of any
kind for admissionlocal people fur
nishing the hall and the state paying
the expenses, or the lecturers.
Copies of the new Farmer's' Insti
tute Annual No. 32, the best book
ever issued on potato growing, handl
ing and" marketing, and using, will
be on hand for this institute. This
256 page book ought -to sell for three
or four dollars, but you can get a
copy free by going to the institute.
Remember the dates for holding
at 10 a. m. and 1.30 p. m. sharp,
Make a holiday for all the members
of the family. Come with the Idea
of getting all the information xou
can. Ask questions on subjects of
special interest to you and don't be
'backward in giving your own experi
ence. It's the mutual interchange of
experience and ideas that makes the
institutes worth while.
