The Home Paper Ex-Gov•. David R. Francis, ol Missouri, once said the following of newspapers: "Each year the local paper Rives from $500 $1,000 in fr?e lines to the com munity |n which he is located. No other agency can or will this. The editor, in proportiui to his means does more for his town than any ten men, and in fairness he ought to be support ed not because you like him or admire his writings, but because the Ii cal paper is the best in vestment a community can make.

A Starring Editor Send Seeds In Early Citizens of South Dakota who desire their field crop seeds test ed for purity and germination should send them to the State College not later than March 1st. It requires time to make these tests and the samples are work ed in the order of their receipt. Every spring, many send in samples just at seeding time and ask for an immediate report. It takes from four to twenty-one days to germinate the various field crop seeds. It is worth while to have purity and germin ation tests to avoid planting nox ious weeds or dead seeds. Therefore send your seed aamples for testing in before the 1st oj March, See that they are labeled carefully with your own (name and address and marked to show what you want done: with the words 'purity test, ger mination test or both' on the package or tag and be sure they are plainly addressed to the Ag ronomy Department, State Col lege, Brookings, S. I). Dfciry Farming Furnishes Work During Slack Season The central northwest states, bv some are objected to because of the short crop growing sea son and the long winters. From a standpoint of crop growing only, this is undoubtedly a valid objection. To grow crops or to produce new wealth only during about five months, and have this manufacture of human food stopped the remainder of the year, is not good farm economics. There are about 80.000 farm* in South Dakota. It is safe to say that each of these farms employs labor at the rate of two men in the summer and one dur ing the winter. Granting this to be true, an army of over 100, 000 of South Dakota's best and strongest workers is every fall turned from a field of produc tion of new wealth to a field of non-production of new wealth: in some instances from a field of activity to a field of inactivity. This is a serious loss. The total loss of so much inlelligent hu man labor is almost indescrib able and beyond comprehension of the finite mind. Who can say how many of these men thu* turned away from a productive field might not be able to pro duce a Banostine Belle De Kol. •Jacoba Irene, or a Spots woo Daisy Pearl. Sure it is that i certain percentage of these mer, would invent or produce some thing that would be a benefit and lasting monument to rea constructive and more pleasan' arid profitable dairy farming. The time of the yea: for the dairy work can b* regulaied not with other crops. The time of freshening is within reasonable control o! the owner. For the averag* dairy farmer, the fall-freshen ing cow is the most profitable. The winter affords the most fa vorable condition for the farm er to get the best and mo6t work out of the dairy cow the labor is cheaper and more plentiful: the price of dairy products ar about a third higher: the cov. gives irore milk during the year, and the fall calves are easier raise. In addition, the dairy cow af fords opportunities for the vari ous members of the family partake in the work on the farm. The work in the barn and the dairy is not heavy work. It is work which requires attention and intelligence, two important characteristics which we wish t" stamp upon every young person's life. So the work of the dairy cow is not only to use labor in a profitable manner, bu* to aid and develop industrious, attentive young people of regular habits.
