COUNTY CuURT APPRO PRIATPR ai nnn vnu a COUNTY FARM ADVISER On April luth there was a fatal ! ers meeting in Farm ington to hear J Prof. R. S. Heese of the Missouri i Agricultural College explain the ' plans and purposes of the Farm Ad jviser movement, and a committee of representative fanners was ap pointed ut that time to get up peti tions to the County Court asking its assistance to get u Farm Ad viser for St. Francois county. As a result of this movement unite a j delegation or farmers waited upon j the Court lust Saturday and pre- -ei ted the matter to the Judges. Their presentation of the advant- ages that such an adviser would be to the agricultural interests of the .county made a tavoruble impres sion upon the Court. The minimum salary of a County AdviBer Is I-J.OW). Qf (bit Hie , l nited States Agricultural Depart I man! agrees to pay SO0O and the i Agricultural Department of the State I'nlversity J.VW to counties where the County Courts uppropri- ate $1 ,IHH) for the same purpose.

Cpon this showing the Court I made an appropriation of 11,000 oon- IditiOaal upon the facts set forth ! above There will doubtless he some op position, at ti titaal to tbli enter- prhla, for there ure many farmers ' a ho do not understand the duties uf an Adviser or how they may be banafttad by his advice and help; but many of utir most successful and. progressive farmers are en thusiastlcally in favor of It. It may be said that in those counties that have employed C. unity Advisers, farmers who at first ipiestl d the advisability and practicability of the plan, have been converted and are among Its warmest supporters. It is not the province of the Adviser to interfere with any farmer's method of conducting his business, but when trouble arises on the farm among the stock or in the fields for which the farmer cannot account or does not know just how to remedy, the adviser when called on will give ttiat particular trouble his attention ; and enough of such cases arise to keep him too busy to be "nutting In" where bU services are not asked or wanted. It is said that In (Jape Girardeau county thousands of dol lar. have been saved to the farmers by tbut county's Farm Adviser In the line matter of stamping out hog cholera alone. The Farm Advisers are men of practical knowlege of all mutters pertaining to the farm the feeding of stock, growing of grain, diseases among stock, Insects tbut prey up on crops, etc., and are selected and t mi mended by a committee from the fj. S. Agricultural Department, tlie State Agricultural College and the County Court of the county where each one is to serve, or some one selected by the Court to act for It. The next move is the selecting and securing of an Adviser for this county. SOME OOOD STREET WORK. Some good work In the way of grading Is being done on several of the streets of Farmlugton that bad ly needed It. Especially was this true of Washington street from Har rison south to and beyond the Ma sonic cemetery. An excellent piece of work has been done on this street, and wbon properly macad amized and graveled will be one of the smoothest and nicest streets in the city. A street from Cnlleirc avenue north, on which the electric railway runs is also being graded. Part of College avenue from A street east is badly in need oi improving. It Is nuriow and rough, and haaama of the railroad track driving along this atreet is made soiitowimt dun. cult. It ought to be properly gradeo ana the ruilroad company be quired to (III up the inside of re the track with chatB. This would elp mattera wonderfully.
