AND COUNTY INTERESTS

Free Account Books
Within a few days time each
farmer in Roosevelt county can go
to his banker and get a free account
book, and it is recommended by the
State College of Agriculture and
the United States Department.
The farmer will find that these
farm business record books are very
simple and can easily be understood
and are so complete that they will
furnish the farmer with a complete
statement of his business at the end
of the year.
Every farmer in the county should
ava ji himself of the opportunity to
se cure one of these account books
because it is through farm business
he is able to find his "leak" for the
year.
Elevator Convention
The directors, stockholders and
managers, together with the county
agent and Farm Bureau presidents
of the counties of Sheridan, Roose
velt, Richland, Valley and Phillips,
are planning a meeting sometime
during the latter part of January, to
be held at some central point, prob
ably at Wolf Point, for the purpose
of talking over and working out
some definite plan of work for the
elevators.
There are many lines which the
elevator, if organized, could take up
which would be a benefit to their
farm patrons, while as it is they are
working at a disadvantage.
Bureau for Good Roads
At the annual meeting of the
Farm Bureau the executive com
mittee decided to make good roads
one of the projects for the coming
year. Every community in this
county should take up its road pro
ject through the county Farm Bu
reau organization to be able to work
out the best possible road project
for your community. If the com
munity wish any aid of the county
surveyor or of the County Good
Roads Association, they should regis
