NO. 33- feARNES COUNTY BIG GBRN SHOW AND SHORT COURSE IN A6RICULTURE Over $1,000 Offered In Premiums by Business Men of Valley City—-Final Connty Contest— Valley City December 2 to 6, Inclusive. Mr. Edwin Mayland, of the Better Farming Association, announces that the Barnes County Corn Show will he held at Valley City, December 2nd to 6th- At this time the prize winning exhibits from the various local fairs recently held, and such exhibits in the vicinity of Valley- City, as have not heretofore competed at fairs are to be brought together in general competi tion for the county as a whole. These products comprise corn, all small grains,'and vegetables. The merchants of 'Valley City have been very liberal in response to the efforts of Mr. Barton and Mr. Zetterberg in obtaining the donations for premiums. Arrangements have been made at this time whereby the Better Farming Association, in co-operation with Miss Minnie Nielson, county superintendent of schools, will hold an Agricultural Short Course for rural school teachers The morning sessions will be devoted to instruction in agriculture—the after noons to work under Miss Nielson. The Agricultural Short Course for teachers will ibe designed especially for the teachers, of the rural schools. It will have for its purpose the demonstration of the simpler agricultural facts that may be used in illustrating their school work and in interesting their school work and in interesting the country boys and girls in rural problems. In connection with the Corn. Show, an Agricultural Short Course for boys under the age of 18 years will be given. This course is designed espe cially with a view of giving the farm boy an insight into the application of better farming methods to the farm. Especial attention will be paid during this week to the subjects of livestock and corn production. These two sub jects will take up the entire week. The work will consist of lectures, of demonstrations and of competitive judging of the livestock and corn on the part of the boys themselves. The work will be entirely practical in its nature and will be illustrated by some of the best livestock in the vicinity of Valley 'City. Any boy in the county is eligible for attendance to this school so long as he obeys instructions and gives evidence that he is in. attendance for the purpose of taking advantage of the opportunity for instruction that is offer ed. Each boy is required to supply himself with note-book, pencils, etc. so that he may take all notes required in class work. Boys will be permitted to bring their parents with them. Later on in the winter it is planned to hold a short course for men and women- Through the activity of Mr. Zetterberg,. secertary of the Commercial club, we have obtained the most desirable rooms to be used for class work in the judging of live stock and corn and for the lecture work in agriculture. The instructional work will be given by various experts of the Better Farming Association. As tentatively outlined, the fallowing men will spend their entire time, or part of their time, at these sessions: Mr. Edwin May land, in charge Mr. 'Frank White, Mr. T. E.

For a number ofr years, the public schodls of this state have set apart a portion of Children's" 'Home Day for the purpose of bringing, to the attention of the pupils the' worthiness of the cause which the' North Dakota Children's Home Socie ty represents. In past years, pupils) have been requested to make small do nations for the support of the home. The wisdom of this has been fully demonstrated and the custom has been fully vindicated. I believe that there is no better way of lnculatlng the lesson of charity, than by having a short program, and requesting the. pupils to assist in this very worthy cause. I therefore request that in ev ery school in the State or North Da kota, on tiie afternoon of Friday, No vember 22nd, special consideration be given the matter of the care of unfor tunate children, and that each pupil be re-quested to make a small contri bution. (, All moneys collected should be made payable to the order of the North Dakota Children's Home Socie ty, and mailed to Supt. Frank D. Hall, Fargo, N. ©., or sent through the of fice of your county superintendent of schools. I trust that there may 'be a generous response this year, and that the need may be remembered by those who are so situated that they are able to contribute from their abundance.
