Foard, County Agent) SOUTHEAST MISSOURI The Garden Spot of the Imperial Mississippi Valley The annual meeting of the St. Fran cois County Farm Bureau Saturday wajS a success. It may be said by some that the Farm Bureau in this County is dead, but if it is dead it is one or the wiggliest, livest corpses I have ever seen. The Bureau now has 62 active members. The membership started at the meeting of the Bureau February 17th at the zero point and has worked its way rapidly up to the marK, ana l am informed by the omcers mat more are coming in, ev ery day. The germ is spreading. nas u reacneu your community yet ; If not, arrange for a metting at your school house. Get in touch with the County Agent. I will attend your meeting at any hour in the day you may suggest, from 7 a. m. to mid night. Get your farmers in your neighborhood together and nroani.e for you cannot accomplish lasting re sults without an organization of your community. I am getting calls from all over the county from different com munities to meet with them and help them plan some work for their partic ular community needs. I am dating these calls up right along. But about the annual meeting. I was about to forget. Sixty-five farm ers were present from various nooka and corners of the county. Mr. P. H Ross, State Leader of County Agents of Columbia. Mo., addressed the meet ing and went into considerable detail explaining the Farm Bureau work and its function in the countv from the standpoint of the farmer and County Agent and State and Govern ment. He mentioned some of the good work that is being accomplished in otner counties tnat have County Agents and some of the good work mat nas Deen done in St. Francois county through its Farm Bureau and County Agents. "St. Francois county is particularly noted throughout this State and other States for its soy bean work and its abvancement of live stock which have been accomp lished through the Farm Bureau," saiu aw, koss. Mr. Ross presented some nroiects to the Bureau for its approval which he and the County Agent had decided would be of fundamental interest to St. Francois county. Some of these projects which were approved by the Bureau and which will be immediately put into action in this county are: Boys and Girls' Club work, Live Stock Exhibits, Investigation for the Use of Limestone, Soil Saving Dams, Farm Management Survey, Orchard Demon- StrationH Cnnfr.il of Haaaion IP1. Control of Contagious Diseases and' Growing of Soybeans. W. D. Ashburn Elected President The Farm Bureau elected W. D. Ashburn as president for the coming year, ine otner omcers elected were as follows: W. E. Matkin, first Vice president; Robert Sellors, second vice president. Delegates: Walter Cartee Weimer, J. H. Shaner, J. M. Bester feldt, Will Kinkead, Wm. Bruett. The president and as many other officers and delegates as possible, with the County Agent, will be glad to meet with any body of farmers in the county and help them organize a sub- bureau in their neighborhood.

As soon as the wheat is off the field in the latter part of May it is usually sown in cow peas which makes the land yield two crops in one season. besides cow peas being a legumen, they are fine for the soil. Nowhere does cotton grow so successful as here often attaining a height of six feet, and what makes it a safe crop is the fact that the destructive boll wee vil, which so often devastates the cot ton through the South, is unknown here. Here, too, alfalfa the crop which lifted the mortgage from the farms of Kansas grows in riotous luxuriousness, yielding from five to six cuttings per year, and often net ting a profit of $60 per aire. What may be said for the above croD is al so true of watermelons, Irish potatoes and sweet notatoes. and all other forms of garden truck which finds here a soil and climate marvelously suited to them. In no other section of the United States is there a region with better railroad facilities than Southeast Mis souri. The chief lines are the Frisco, Cotton Belt and Iron Mountain, which, together with their innumerable branches, furnish more than 1000 miles of trackage. In addition to these is the packet traffic on the Mis sissippi which furnishes cheap river transportation and all of them are only about 100 miles removed from the great city of St. Louis, which is one oi ine greatest grain, live stock and produce markets in the United States. There is no more healthful climate in the central section of the United States than Southeast Missouri, and any reputable physician in this region will tell you so. Years ago there was more or less malaria, but with the digging of the big ditches it has dis appeared almost altogether, while such diseases as typhoid fever are seldom heard of. The sandy subsoil has the effect of purifying the water which makes it exceptionally whole some. All you need to do to be con vinced on this score is to glance out of a car window at any railroad sta tion and see the rudv glow on the cheeks of those who crowd the plat form. Winters are mild and the sum mers are tempered with the cool gulf breezes which blow ud from the South.

The high value of its seed offers the most promising pos- Hionity. ior ine iuture use oi trie soy bean as a seed crop, according to W. C. Etheridge of the Missouri College of Agriculture. Soybean seed are the richest in crude protein of any seed used for feeding, are extremely high in fat and are highly digestible. Feeding exper iments have shown soybean seed meal to be slightly superior to cottonseed meal for dairy cows and only slightly inferior to cottonseed meal for fatten ing cattle. Soybeans are also excel lent feed for horses, sheep ana" pies. It must be understood, however, that soybean meal is a highly concertrated nitrogenous feed and as such must be fed sparingly in about the same ra tio to other feeds as cottonseed meal is fed.
