After calling the meeting to order 1

stated that the exhibit was designed

ing. The addresses by Dr. II Hny
wa-d, of Delaware College, and Mr.
J. C. McDowell, of the
U. S. Dairy
Department, and the Boys' and Girls'
Heifer Shows were very interesting
features of the two if-etings.
Due to the splendid showing made
bv the boys in the dairy cattle judging
contest at the State Fair it was
pro
posed that a judging team be sent to
the National Dairy Show to be held
in Chicago in October to enter the
national boys' judging contest, but
upon receipt of the rules of the con
test it was found that boys from Del
aware were not eligible this year, but
would be next year. A team will
doubtless be trained and sent next
year.
In reporting the meeting of the
State Bankers' Association. Mr. M
O. Pence stated that the bankers of
..
Delaware are behind the county farm
bureaus and that they have guaran
teed an appropriation to aid in financ
ing a farmers' short course which will
probably be held at Delaware College
this winter.
A motion was
made and carried
that the secretary be instructed to
write to the Delaware Senators and
Representatives, urging them to vote
for the Hersman Bill, which exempts
farmers .f eim criminal prosecution
under the Clayton anti-trust law.
Home-Coming
The best ef weather for an outdoor
gathering favored the annual Home
coming at Red Men's grove on Satur
day. Early in the morning a brilliant
poster done in the national colors bade
a cordial welcome to the visiting
tribesmen and their families, whi, bo.
gan to arrive before lunch time.
Red Men Have Quiet
Tables had been spread under the
trees and here joyous reunions were
held while they awaited the others
who could not come until afternoon
Officials of the order from Wil
mington had planned the exercisis
and expected with a large delegation
from that place to arrive here
trucks early in the afternoon. Thev
in.
were to be escorted to the grounds by ;
'mnehrha Band. These turned o.i.
man, but when the appointed ,
nour for the arrival of the Wilming

f put in an appearance. The band
marched to the grounds and relier cd
the tedium of the waiting by playing
patriotic and other airs. The younger
psembers of the order and the pa
pooses played ball, tag, and other
games. About 3 o'clock a few Wil
mingtenians came by train and stated
that owing to a hitch in the matter of
securing conveyance the others wuld

This fungus disease can be easily
controlled if the proper measures
are taken to treat llie seed. If the

is used for combating stinking

Spread. The seed on a clean floor

thoroughly moist, but not wet
enough to drip. Stir the seed re

evenly, then shovel into a pile and
cover with sacks or canvas for turn
