Made
Institute at Faith.
F. A. Finch, than whom there
is no greater agricultural booster
in these parts, returned Thurs
day from Faith, where he took
in the farmers' institute and fair.
Mr. Finch says:
"The institute at Faith was
big success, and everybody joined
hanns in making it so. There
were upwards of 400 people in
attendance-this contrary to the
opinion that the Faith country
has been nigh deserted. Some
came quite a distance—one man
from 50 miles away.
They had some agricultural
exhibits, and also quite an at
tractive chicken show. But the
big interest centered in the ta
stitnte meetings.
The main speakers were a Mr.
Wenz, of Brown county, and Mr.
Bierwagen, of Stanley county.
Both spoke mainly on "Dry
Farming" and "Alfalfa.' Both
being practical farmers, their
talks bore good weight, and the
lectures by Ms. Bierwagen were
of especial merit, he speaking
from a vast store of experience
gained in Stanlev county. The
Faith country is thoroughly alive
to the importance of its agricul
tural problems, and an energetic
and intelligent public is going to
put in effect the many good
things learned at the institute.

Chris. Don't Know.
The following unique opinion
is one of this week's contri
butions to the Herald's columns.
If nothing else it in appeals, the
humor of it surely will:
Lemmon Herald:
My son George has about all
the bulletins, state and U S. on
proper methods of farming, and
their wisdom has been boiled
down to the following couplet.
The wisdom of his neighbor
"Chris," a noble Dane, is equal
to that of our astute politicians,
who never commit themselves
until the child is born.
I trust the crop this year will
be a boom ohe, and give all the
people great prosperity.

"DRY FARMING'
Sung to the tune of "My Gal's ft
county queen she eao play on the a
cod-deeri."
It all depends on "If" or "but,'"
Whether to plow when thecrop is cut.
Some say "no, don't take the risk
Let plowing wait—just double disc,1'
Some say, this, but some say, "no,
Lot stubble stand to hold the snow.
Or the ground will dry and thf» soil
will blow."
Some say thus, and some say so.
Chris says. 'Maybe, don't know."
REFRAIN.
Plow in the springtime, plow in the
fall.
Plow deep, plow shallow don plow
at all.
Some
say
thus, and some say s.
Chris says, "Maybe, I don't know.''
L. L. Dorsey, of Anchorage,
Ky., Writes: I have sold the
Morgan stallion Goldwood to
Lewis C. Peck, Lemmon, S. D.
also four weanlings by Goldsheen.
Mr. Peck bought a Morgan colt
from me eleven years ago, on an
order, which I shipped to him by
express. He states that the colt
has been a gold-mine for him,
the best breeder of government
horses in the Northwest. He has
decreased his breeding stud from
1,000 to 250 head and has secured
from me as good a lot of large
Morgans both in quality and
breeding as it is possible to buy.
I also sold him two Jersey cows
and some Poland China pigs.
