the farmers to a realization of the |
necessity of harmonious ana efficient
organization and the establishment
of permanent headquarters at the j
capitcl of the nation.
After Mr. Elmore's address, Mr.

talk on the advisibility of procuring
better live stock. He advocated the
organization of pig clubs, by the
young folks and suggested that fl

improvement, would be given, if
necessary, by the Waterman Banks.
Mr. Gron*nger is doing a great
work it trying to build up the live
stock industry of the Clearwater

ers were attentively listened to.
