FARM EXTENSION SCHOOL.
Will Be Held in Newberry Beginning
August 2.- Every Farmer
The Herald and News has -hereto
fore printed the notice of the exten
sion school work w-hidh it is proposed
to do in Newberry under the direction
of Clemson College and the United
States department of agriculture.
The school, because it is intended
to be a school for the instruction of
farmers and others who desire in
struction in matters pertaining to
agriculture, will be held at Newberry
beginning on Monday, August 2, and
continue through Friday.
The trustees of the Newberry
Graded School have kindly permitted
tihe school to be held in the Graded
School building and it is hoped that
not only farmers but citizens of the
city who are interested in the sub
jects to be discussed will attend and
enocuraae the tanjhers
Prof. D. N. Barrow, of Clemson
college, was in Newberry last week
in consultation with Mr. A. D. Hud
son and other progressive. farmers
making the necessary arangements.
If it is desired the professors in
this school will igrve lectures at night
using stereopt-icons and c'iarts il
lustrating their lectures. We would
.think that these stereopticons lectures
would be very interesting and largely
attended. Announcements as to
these, however, will be made later.
Interest in agricultuiral matters in
this county has increased very great
ly in The last few years and as a re
sult the farmers are making better
Crops, larger yields per acre, and
iving more attention to the conven
iences and comforts of their homes.
This school will do much to increase
this interest and it is hoped that the
farmers will appreciate what is to be
offered t1hem and that as many as pos
sible will attend.
Arrangements should be made to
serve picnic dinner on the grounds,
and we hope that the people in this
city will cooperate with the farmers
in ma-king this extension school work
a decided success.
Newberry has the distinction of be
ing one of the very few counties in
this State whieh will have the oppor
tunity and privilege of such a school,
and they should show their apprecia
tion by their presence an-d interest.
From Clemson college the follow
ing lecturers, who are experts in their
lines, will take part in this extension
school work: D. N. Barrow, . G. G.
Ainslie, A. F. Conradi, J. H. Burgess,
E. Barnett, and D. W. Daniel, and
