(Spec ial) The Directors of the Breckin ridge County Farm Bureau held a most important meeting at their of fice last Saturday. Those present were: Jack Jolly, president; J. R. Eskridgc, .secretary and treasurer; G. N. Lyddan, Irving ton; J. E. Hart, McDanicls; J. M. Howard, Glen Dean; Orrin Hardin, Cloverport; Earl Wright, Kingswood and former president Vic Pile, of Hamed. The Bureau decided to purchase a mimograph or duplicating machine and to publish a bulletin twice a month to be sent to each member. This work will be in charge of County Agent Jos. W. Harth. Organize a Pig Club. Mr James McCoy, Jr., of Harned was employed to take charge of Club Work in the county and will begin work the first of May. He will begin the organization of a pure bred Pig Club at once. The McCoy boys have had astonishing success in breeding pure bred big bone Poland Chinas. The Bureau also decided to get be hind the diary business in the county and push it for all it is worth; be lieving that dairying will bring money to the farmers and upbuild their soil. In this connection it is needless to say that success in this business is arrived at only in keeping high pro ducing cows. To this end the County Agent was instructed to put himself at the service of those interested to test their cows for butter fat or in struct them in the use of the Bab cock tester. The Bureau will also encourage the movement to introduce and keep pure bred sires in the county. There is no use trying to argue the proposition that "blood will tell." A Meeting on May 9 A meeting of prominent citizens and Bureau members will be held at Hardinsburg on the second Monday in May to put in motion a membership drive in the county. The membership has had a steady growth since the organization of the Bureau. The Bureau hears that there is some criticism being made against it; but this criticism is of itself a rccom- ' inundation of and for tiie Bureau as ' it comes from middle men who ha've been handling commodities that the i Bureau is now buying at cost. It certainly is a narrow-minded cit izen who ran object under prevailing conditions to the farmer trying to save some money in this respect. i Everyone in the county is dependent in a large measure for success, upon the prosperity of the farmers. It might be well in this connection to add also, that the Bureau absolute ly knows no political or religious dif ferences, its sole object being to pror ' mote the best interests of Breckin ridge county. As to its paid em ployees, two are Republicans and one a Democrat. As to religious views no ' questions are asked, and members and sympathizers are welcome even though they are not religiously inclin ed at all. The Bureau office will be open from 8 o'clock in the morning until five in the afternoon with an hour for lunch at noon. It is at the service of all. Call in person or by telephone.
