Strawberry Association
Should Be a Winner.
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
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.

Farmers Have Big Day.
A big farmers meeting w
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

better the conditions of tlu
farmer. Mr. W. O. Stanly, Sec

To The Voters.
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.
