V--#V--r The State Agricultural College at Ames lived up to its reputation again this year by capturing some of the big prizes at the International Live Stock Exposition. Since this annual exposition was es tablished more thai* ten years ago the Ames school has carried oft more championships for fat cattle and hogs tbad ALL OTHER AGRICULTURAL COL LEGES COMBINED. It follows that farmers will do well to take notice of the new plan of this college to tell stockmen during tbe winter course how to fatten stock. This oauraeopenB New Years Day at Ames apd continues two weeks. All the knowledge and experience of the college instructors have been con densed into this short course, which will include feeding, breeding and management of all classes of live stock It is clear that the course ought to be woith while to the average farmer. .. The horticultural department is planning a similar course, which will be aB valuable to the fruit grower. Tbe prime object of this course will be to show Iowa people how to make apple-growing actually profitable from a commercial standpoint. It is a puzzle to many people that Iowa carries off regularly many of the pri zes at the national apple shows, and yet Iowa apple-growers make no mo ney out ot the business. This course will show why this is true and how this condition may be remedied. Ames instructors believe that there is money in Iowa apples and in view of the fact that they have generally proved themselves right in the past, orchard owners will well to "get a line" on them in their new propa ganda.
