Lemmon's municipal saloon has n ade a net earning during the past six months of $6Ji87.66 and the Signal thinks that this is a good showing. Personally, w e i n k i s a a o n e e receipts of the saloon for the month of December amounted to $3405.09. In other wordi, as much money is being spent for booze at the Lemmon saloon as is being paid out for cream by the Hettinger creamery. Or to put it another way: If the Lem mon saloon had the same lift of patrons as the Hettinger cream ery, it would take all of their cream to maintain the saloon. What a waste of perfectly good cream! —Adams County Record. The municipal saloon enjoys a most excellent trade from points west in North Dakr.ta. Beats sending the cream to Sears. Roe bu«k& Co. anyway. iThink It Over Trie weekly newspaper pro motes the interests os the town in which it is published to such an extent that it becomes im possible to place an estimate up on its worth. There i3 no enter prise that doss so mueh for the corporation or the individual citizen as the paper. It stands opposed to the town knocker, the town kicker, the town fan atic and the town drones. It stands for action against dry rot It stands for progress against stagnation. It is ever ready to combat the schemes of visionar ies and as ready to aid the con structive plans,of the wise and level-headed citizens. It is for the upbuilding of the community, The paper has not yet come into its own, however, because it is never appreciated to the extent of its worth by the people at large. Yet when battles are to be fought for the town or county a rush is made to the newspaper office always to find the loyal ed itor ready, frequently without hope of reward. Many other enterprises are encouraged by a bonus, but rarely is the news paper offered any such help and still more often not given the support it is entitled to. Com munities frequently lose sight of their real benefactor when they fail to recognize the weekly jour nal as such. The editor and his paper stand as the bulwarks of defense apain.st the attacks of evil or designing schemes affect ing the good of the individual or the town. For these and other reasons the newspapers of the town and county should receive the support of the public at large in a liberal degree, :or it is really the most important busi ness enterprise of the community AGRICULTURAL NEWS from So.Dakota State Colleie furnished by Extension Dept. Ceo. A Starring Editor New Sweet Clover Bulletin "Trials with Sweet Clover as a Field Crop in South Dakota" is the title of a new bulletin by Dr. A. N. Hume and Manley Champ lin. This bulletin gives a de tailed account of experience in growing sweet clover in this stat?. Two significant facts are brought out: 1. Sweet clover benefits tl e soil and is well a^nt°d to rotate with corn and suitui grain. 2. Sweet clover is profitable both as a hay crop and as a seed jcrop.

Mure Tab* W Student! The tut Jfcgian, pub. lished by th" students of the State College, announces that the year's tota! attendance thus far is 1050 students. Students are arriving each week for vari ous short courses, so that a total of 1100 is expected. The total number of regular students loc ated on the campus at one time is something between seven and eight hundred, the balance being sh rt term students for Farm and Home course, Creamery course. Traction course, etc. It is an extremely busy year for the college professors, many being obliged to give instruction to more than one hundred in a class. A majority of the instruc tors are teaching too many hours per week in order to care for the increased attendance. In fact, many classes are so large that they must be run in two or three sections to accommodate all. To make the work doubly hard, many professors are called upon for outside extension work among farmers, demonstration or irs:itute work, or for research work. More men and more equipment are sadly needed just now. State College is suffering from "growing pains," Fetcrita as Forage Crop H. B., of Fall River county, makes the following inquiry: "What do you know about Fet crita as a forage crop for Fall River county? Do you know of any place where the seed may be obtained that was raised in the s''mi-arid country? From what 1 can learn it has done well in western Kansas rfnd Nebraska." Reply by Manley Champlin, Ass't Agronomist in Charge of Field Experiments, State College Feterita does not ripen seed dependably as far north as Brookings and Highmore and we have not yet tried it at Cotton wood, but I know that it has ripened seed and given very satisfactory results at Draper, Vivian and Interior, South Dako ta, It is widely grown through out western Kansas as a dual purpose crop and seems to be replacing all other forms of grain sorghum in that area. "I think it will mature in Fall River county and if so it would make an excellent drouth resist ent, dual purpose crop for that region. As a forage crop only, it is inferior to Dakota Amber cane.
