The excayation work is now well under way.

Daniels was elected to arrange the details of the meeting to be held at Langdon on March 18th for the purpose of perfecting a county organization. This is a step in the right direction and we think it can be made a great benefit to all in the county, others as well as club members especially in help iug us in marketinir whatever we have, take horses for instance there seems to be quite a large number in the county for sale but not much of a demand. Now if it was known by horse buyers that they could gather them here by the car load we would have buyers en ough because the demand is good in other sections. With a county organization they could all be listed with the secretary and the list advertised in our local papers and the list would be large en ough to attract outside buyers. Where at the present time if I advertise what I have individually it would be of no at traction to them, the same would hold good with whatever we have to dispose of The way we are situated at the pre sent time a buyer has t.ospend too much time and money hunting up whatever he may want to buy and he deducts that from the price he pays which is our loss. Every club should see that they are well represented at the meeting and every farmer should make an effort to attend and do so if possible. We should have the co-operation of every progressive farmer in the county. All other branches of business have their organizations and gather together to improve their conditions. Its about time that the fHrmers, the biggest in terest in the county. by far, make up and profit hy the experience of other lin *s and do something to improve their conditions and thereby help all other en terprises in the countyO.II.
