Whether or not the Russian sun ower would fill the long felt want f|>r a silage crop for higher altitudes hka been a question foremost in the mimia of aspiring dairymen in such sections. Though this has be^n a pro bability for the past few years, it a now fast taking on the aspect of « demonstrated fact. The three im portant phases to demonstrate were: first, would the crop withstand the climate of the higher altitude; sec ond, would the yield per acre bo sufficiently largo to justify planting it; and third, would its feeding val ue as ensilage justify its production. The first two propositions were dem onstrated in this and neighboring valleys during the past summer. That tho. crop can be grown, and grown abundantly was clearly proved by a number of men who grew experi mental plots. As much as thirty-four tons per acre was pronounced local iy. As to tbe feeding value of the sun flower ensilage one may draw his own conclusion from the following taken from an article on Sunflowers as a silage crop which appearel in Hoard's Dairyman of January 7th, 1921. H- • • * "Three years' trial at the Saskatchewan University farm has shown that sunflower en silage compares favorably with corn silage, having at least an equal feed ing value. At the Manitoba Agricul tural College extensive feeding tests were made last winter by feeding dairy cows with sunflowers, corn and other ensilage. It was found that the milk flow of these cows was slight ly heavier after being fed on sun flower ensilage than any other. The increase did not amount to much, but it was there Just the same. More over, during the sunflower feeding period the cows gained more weight than they did at any other period.. Professor G. H.'Hutton, on the Can adian Pacific railway farm at 8trath more, says that he had a simifiar ex perience with the cows of the pre bred Holstein herd maintained there, Their milk flow slightly Increased and the cows gained slightly more weight when given sunflower en silage than when fed on ensilage made from corn or peas and oats." According to an experiment car ried on by the Canadian government at the government farm at 8cott, Sas katchewan, sunflower ensilage when fed to beef steers had a value of $13.82 per ton. Are there not some enterprising farmers in Bear Lake county who will be ready to plant sunflowers in the spring and build a silo in order that they might take advantage of this discovery which means so much to dairying and general stock raising in these higher valleys f The executive committee of the County Farm Bureau organization J hà8 Called a meeUn * of th « Commu -njty Chairmen, Rodent Control Pro jeqt Leaders and as many Farm Bu n members as can possibly attend for; 10:30, January 22, at the Court Houso in Paris. number of important matters ining t>t Farm Burean work will b^ discussed at tbe meeting and a campaign for the destruction of the ^now-shoe rabbit will be outlined.

One more step has been taken to bring the local high school up to tha standard and to provide for Us stud ents advantages which many other cities in the state, smaller and less prosperous than Montpelier, have long ago given their boys and girls. The Board of Education has ranted tha Pavilion tor three hours each af ternoon to be used ss a gymnasium for high school student^T Though it lias the «tsadvanug» 6f being locat led some distance from the school and is neither arranged nor equipped as a real gymnasium should be, It does provide a place tor much needed physical exercise and relaxation, and though a makeshift in this sense, is to be greatly appreclatad. ' Regular classes, under the direct ion of faculty members are held ev ery school day and the present sched ule makes it possible tor every boy or girl in the high school but blip* to obtain at least two forty-five min ute periods per week In the gymna sium. For the past three weeks at tendance at the gymnasium has been left optional with the atudenta but beginning Monday, January 14, tha beginning of the second semester, all students In the building will ha required to attend except where*evi dence of physical unfitness Is pre sented, and such cases should be very few. Any Innovation ie likely to bring forth protests and this Introduction of systematic exercise In the school Is no exception. Already a few, tho very few, parents have raised half hearted objections to their children, especially girls, being required to take the work. In many cases the ob jection Is evidently made In ignor ance of what is planned for these classes. Parents should at least In quire what tha word "gymnasium" in this case signifies before they seek to deny their children Its beue fits. To begin with It does not mean basket bell, exclusively, and may not even Include it unless the Indi vidual student desire# that activity in connection with the regularly planned class work. The classes will be conducted in general according to some such scheme as the following; About ten or fifteen minutes will be devoted to setting up exercises.These are Intended to bring into play the muscles which are seldom used to any degree in regular dally habits and yet which should be developed; to cultivate proper co-ordination of mind and body and thus lead to de sired physical control; to cultivate proper habits of Carriage; to encour age the capacity end habit of deep |rnath1ng. Marching % Introduced In connection with the setting up ex ercises. About ten minutes will be devoted to "stunts" such ss "pull up" skinning the cat", "sqaw wrest ling", etc., which used to be indulg ed In but which are being rapidly rorgotten. Those things have in the main the same object as tbe setting up exercises but with ths added stim uli of exhibition, accomplishment, and contest. The remaining fifteen or twenty minutes will be devoted to games which will give exerciaa, "ihres deep," "cat and mouse, Igy races, etc. Thus the scheme is to provide physics! and mental re laxation and yet do so In such a way as to promote health and vigor. These things will be worked out gradually and easily with proper precaution that students unused to vigorous activity shall not over ex ert themselves. It Is not "physical torture" ss some people seem to sug gest, but on the contrary physical culture mixed with a generous por it BUILDINGS MUST GO SAYS C!ïï QFFICMLS Legal Notice Will be Served on Elisha Strong to Remove Unsightly Buildings In Business District.
