July 14, l'!21 __36 if-u ^^||||||||^^ '' The Farm Bureau of our county has been in operation long enough for us to form an opinion of it. 1 have had opportunity to know enough of its working to be in a position to testify to its worth. I have personally pro fited by my connection with it. 1 never spent ten dollars to greater ad vantage than the ten dollars I paid l'or stock in the Bureau. The profit I have received has been more than merely an increased price for what 1 have sold through the Bureau, and a decreased pripe for what I have bought, but I have felt advantageously the influence f the Bureau on the prices I have paid for goods bought through other chandles. My experi ence I find is the same as that of my neighbors. The Farm Bureau is a good thing for us. We are on the right track in tfcis bpsiness, and .1 FARM BUREAU PICNIC JULY 19. AT BURGESS. It has been a long time since the people of Burgess have been so en thusiattic over a Picnic as the one which is to held July 19th in behalf of the Lafayette County Farm Bureau. A committee on arrangement is mak ing elaborate preparations and prac tica'l.v everybody within five to ten miles of Burgess will be on hand to say nothing of a good number of peo ple from other communities in our adjourning Counties who are advising us daily that they expect to be there. Everybody is invited to come and don't forget your Basket. The Farm Bureau is the greatest foresee very great benefit to the coun ty tlirough this agency. May I sug gest, without giving offense, that this is not the proper time for “knockers,” everything human may be adversely criticised if one will hunt for the faults. The Farm Bureau, whatever its faults, has a very great prepon- j denance of good points. It is so necessary to the farmers, and holds the promise of so much future good, depending on ur co-operation, that we may wisely leave the correction of the faults to the management and give our undivided attention to the good things, to be said about it. There is no doubt in my mind that the best thing that can be done for the county financially just now is a large increase in the number of stock holders in the Farm Bure W. D.
