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
