Last Saturday afternoon in the I. O. O. F. Hall in Mansfield, a very enthusiastic strawberry meeting was held. More than 50 farmers and husiuess men attended this meeting, and it seems that there is a strong probability of sufficient acres be ing secured to justify the organ ization of a Strawberry Associa tion at Mansfield. Another meet ing will be held in the same hall next Saturday afternoon, and it is hoped that these committees and "workers will have secured sufficient acreage by this meet date to "put the thing over". Otherstrawberry men and straw berry growers have been invited to this next Saturday's meeting, and we believe some of theiu will lie wild us. Come out and hear what they have to say. Mr, F. Fa u rot, director of the Mis souri State Fruit Experiment Station, Mountain Grove, was with us last Saturday, and de livered a very interesting talk. Mr. Faurot made a very conserv ative talk, confined to facts in the erowinc of strawberries. He says strawberries are a real "mortgage lifter" when they are properly handled and cared for. There are fewer things, if any, that would be of greater benefit to Mansiield and vicinity than a large acreage of strawberries But whatever is done, must be done quickly, as the time for set ting is NOW. The following is a clipping from the Globe-Demo crat, w hich shows the large ac tivities and the "money that will be gathered" from this year's crop in the berry growing sec tions of the Ozarks. Strawber ries will do as well here as they will anywhere in Missouri: M9XETT, MO., March 19. Strawberry raisers at present are fearing a shortage in help to harvest the immense strawberry crop that is predicted in the Ozirks this year. The produc ers fear that the berries will rip en faster than they can he gath ered, and already are making arrangements to get as much early help as possible. The es timate of the yield in this sectiou of the state is now placed at 3000 cars, which will exceed produc tion of former years by a wide margin. This estimate holds good. Lirge shipments are ex pected to be made during the year from Marionville, Sarcoxie, Aurora, Pierce City, Munett, Neosho, Liuttertield, Cassville, Republic and Hillings in this sate, and Farmington in Arkan sas. Picking of the berries is expected to begin in about six weeks. The Mirror editor wi&hes to call the attention of our readers to the Flat Rock Items in this week's paper, signed by 'Poddy'. We feel certain that a good strawberry acreage in the vici nity of Mansfield would be one of the big things that could hap pen to this country, and would produce' more money per acre in cultivation than perhaps any other crops the fanners could engage in raising. To say the least of it, as our friend"Poddy" suggests, it will bring good re turns for our labor, and will fur nish employment to hundreds of boys and girls, after the school year has been closed, which will cultivate a habit of thrift and in dustry, among the rising gene ration, 60 much needed just at this time. We hope that the farmers and producers uf this part of the country will get be hind this movement and put it ove"; handle it themselves, elect. from among themselves, their own officers and directors, and handle it according to their own good judgement. Take it from us, that the only interest the Chamber of Commerce has in this strawberry movement, is to see it a "going bushiest", and sufficient acreage to elfiect a good strong Strawberry Asso ciation, which will justify ship ment in car load lots, and will be the means of bring hundreds of thousands of dollars into the country. We notice a little in difference in the strawberry movement, among some farmers and business men, but we ob serve one thing which is especi ally commendable, and that is, among the farmers and produc ers around Mansfield, they are, as whole, quick to see a good thingiHod ; are enthusiastic workers "fur the same. We want to congratulate "Poddy", of the Flat Rock Items. S. K. Seal lias gone to Califor nia. (a A K DEN FOU KENT. In quire Mrs. Elizabeth Coday. Farmers Have Big Day. A big farmers meeting w ras held in Mansfield last Friday, iu which many of the leading far mers around this city participa ted. The leading feature of this gathering was an address by D. M. Gause, of the State Farmers Bureau, whoso home is at Buf falo, Mo. Mr. Clause made a very interesting talk along the lines of co operation and the needs of the fanners to stand together. Ho denounced the Board of trade and the city grain pits as one of the great enemies to farm progress and farinpriees. A.J. Clarke, of the Bank of Mansfield, who was a member of the Chica go Board of trade for 17 years, was called on for a talk. He corroborated what Mr. Gause said, and said he was in sympa thy with anything that would better the conditions of tlu farmer. Mr. W. O. Stanly, Sec retary of the Wright county Farm Bureau, also made a shor talk, reviewing the work of the farm Clubs in this county V'.

There seems to be some mis understanding about the school levy. According to, law if a dis trict levies more than -10 cts. on 100 valuation, it must be voted on at the annual school election. This coming election the voters are to vote on $1.50 for school purposes. This is exactly the same levy that the district has this year. Since the valuation of this dis trict is about 400,000, the defeat of the levy would mean about $1000.00 of taxes to support the school for a year. Hasing state aid on previous years, the school in addition would receive about $1500.00 making a total of about $1)0. This would not be enough to support the grades. Should the $1.50 levy carry this would give the school about $0000.00 Hasing State aid, high school aid, and vocational aid, on previous year, the school would receive over $3000.00. This will make a total of about $'.HX;0 to meet the expense of the school. The school needs every dollar of this to meet the cur rent expense. It will need an equal amount for next year. Docs it mean anything to have afirstclass high school? Should the voters kill our high school, jou deprive about 75 of your boys and girls from any high school course; you will lower the value of real estate and will keep out desirabld people from locating in your town. You will send the money out of your towm to educate your boys and girls at other places. Your school will come underthe coun ty unit, which has always been controlled by a board at Hart ville. Every voter should think before easting a .vote against the levy. Do L want to kill fhe school? Do I want our school to be governed by a board at Ilarb- ville? If not vote for the levy. By a voter, Musings of a Good Natured Grouch. A bit of prosperity is like a piece of money. If you take care of it, and let it grow, you will soon have more.
