VOLUME 42. No. 40 SPECIAL FARM MARKETS PAY LaMOURE COUNTY PRODUCERS FIND WAY TO GAIN SUCCESS Farmers o£ LaMoure county and other sections of North Dakota are finding that it pays to raise special quality produce and to look for spe cial markets. R. A, Regelein, a farmer residing near Griswold in LaMoure county, has proved the advantage of careful cuiiing in his poultry flock and also in developing a special market for his produce. Mr. Regelein ships all of h.3 eggs to one of the leading hotels in Fargo and reports: -V "I ship ail my eggs all the year round. I have only one breed and the eggs are uniform in size and color. 1 get the advantage of a steady mar ket the year round at the Fargo price which is always a few cents over the local price." Mr. Regelein, by .careful selection has a flock of hens none Of which prodi\ees under 100 eggs a year and many cf them are elose to the 150 mark. Another LaMoure county farmer, Ernest Steele of Edgel^y, having pro duced an extra flue-crop of durum that graded No.' 1 amber, made a con tract with the Quaker Oats company to take his suppiy, to be made into puffed wheat. He' is getting a pre mium price for several carloads. "These two cases are typical of what many LaMoure ctfunty farmers are doing in the way of developing a special market for their produce" is the commtnt of C. H. Pollock, former Fargo boy, who is county agent of LaMoure coutny. "Putting out a good' product cannot be emphasized too strongly," he says. "A very little study and some care will improve most farm products and make them more saleable. In the case of eggs, clean eggs produced by having deep straw on henhouse floors and in nests and eggs of one color and even size, produced by a single breed of chickens, will sell anywhere and frequently pay a premium. "A Grand Forks county woman yliips eggs by express to New York city and makes from 7 to 10 cents, a dozen clear over the local price. Hotels in larger towns seldom have all of the first class eggs that they need. Even potatoes have sold well this year when prepared for market. "A farmer from near Velva is re ported to have received more than a dollar a bushel net from a Chicago hotel where he had stopped and wrote asking if they could use more. The hotel answered with an order for six carloads at a price that is rare for this year. George Rust of Marion has several inquiries for his potatoes for seed. He has a white variety ot potato that sells very well both for table use and seed. At present Dean H. L. Bolley at the agricultural col lege has a request from a New York seed firm for the names of growers of 12,000 bushels of North Dakota seed potatoes, Ohio, Cobblers and Triumphs. "Henry Pinkey of Marion get a special market for his corn by hand ling it carefully and producing seed. Breeders of purebred livestock are in the class of those who get special prices for special products. Sweet clover growers of Verona sold their seed crops directly last year and made a good profit. "Special markets are a common thing in states farther east, particu uarly near larger towns. Even ii. smaller towns there are" always peo ple who prefer to buy eggs, buttei and poultry directly from farmers often at a few cents above the loca price, if the product is well prepared. MICKIE, THE PRINTER'S DEVIL "It takes more work and thought to secure and use special markets but tanners who have made use of them are not slow to express their satis faction both with the price they re ceive and the pride ot putting out a superior product." ,-r METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH Rev.

At the morning ser vice our little Congregational circle was enlarged to make room for a few morewho were desirous of help ing make the Church more effective in its service to the community. At the evening service the 'seating capacity of both the auditorium and the lecture room was taxed to capac ity. We are pleased to believe that all present enjoyed the service. Those who assisted in the program have placed us under a debt of gratitude. On Monday evening the members' of the Ladies Aid Society met at the home of Mrs. L. H. Smith for the annual business meeting. Among the items of business matters cared waa the election of officers for the coming year. Mrs. Smith begged to be relieved of the burden of the presidency with reluctance the ladles accepted the resignation and shifted the responsfbility to Mrs. Egan. The retiring president has rendered ex cellent srvice during her term of of fice and has set a high standard. Mrs. Egan is a worthy successor and will strive diligently to keep the standard high. We speak for her the hearty cooperation of, the entire member ship. The little people of the primary department of the Sunday school will enjoy a little session around the little Jhristmas tree in the bastment of the church on Saturday afternoon, under the supervision of the respective teachers of that department.

We shall be pleased to see that this is done each week if the desire is made known to us. Any item of in terest to any departmen of our church work. These are the delightful days that fill us with joyous expectancy: Many of the young folks who left us last fall to go to their respective Places or study or employment are now preparing to return home for the •Jhristmas vacation.

Poor team play, miserable ball handling and worse shooting accounts for Fargo's loss. The Midgets, who have only participated in seven prac tice sessions to date, were worse than ragged. Only in flashes did the fam* ous Rusch-Miller combination of last year'B championship aggregation get in action, and their efforts were usu ally completed by a miserable at tempt for a basket. Hope Quint Strong Hope doubtless will be a prominent figure in the district tournament next March. The visiting team showed fine teamwork and their physical con dition was remarkable for this early in the season. Hope's outstanding work was done on the defense. Time after time Rusch and Miller worked tho ball down the floor only to be smothered under the furious attacks of the visit" ing defense. The Hope team was in excellent shape and went the entire route at a terrific pace. The visiting team, un less overtrained, should prove to be a trouble maker In the district. Fargo Prospects Good Fargo followers should not feel de pressed over the defeat. The Hope aggregation put a fine clean brand of basketball and deserved to win. A -basketball team cannot be developed in two weeks time and Fargo has the nucleus of a strong team. In Captain Miller and Rusch, Fargo haa two aggressive floormen who should mak^tjiin^p Interesting when they flivd the.tiseHei rtusch was the outstanding performer of the game last night, but his inability to handle the ball, effectively kept him from scoring frequently. Clayton Watklns, the third veteran on the team, played his usual bril liant game at standing guard. Wat kins' work kept the Hope forwards well out of the range of the basket, the majority of the visitors shots be ing long ones. Coach Kimball has demonstrated his ability to coach basketball In the past, and there is no reason why the Gate city quint should not be In the running for th title again this year— but many long, hard practice sessions will be In order before tho team will be presentable.
