The Kandiyohi County Horticul tural Society held its annual meet ing in Bonde Hall last Saturday, with President P. H. Frye in the chair. The first order of business was the reading of the minutes of the previous meeting by the secre tary-tieasurer, C. C. Selvig. After these hctd been read and approved, Secretary Selvig, as chairman of the committee that had been ap pointed last year to wait upon the county commisisoners to see if they would not appropriate $400 to en able Kandiyohi county to have an exhibit at the state fair, reported that the committee, together with a number of the leading business men of Willmar, had met with the county commissioners and ad urged upon them the necessity of such an exhibit, pointing out the great benefit that would accrue to the county, not only in bringing it to the notice of the whole state, but a'so as an incentive to the farmers of the county to put forth their best endeavors to raise the standard of the various products raised and marketed by them. The county commissioners, how ever, on the advice of the county attorney, claimed that Chap. 99, H. F. 336 of the revised laws oi Minnesota, 1907, did not apply to Kandijohi county, as there was not 40 per cent of uncultivated land in the county, and for th^t reason de clined to make an appropriation. It was decided, however, not to ac cept this decision as final, but to put bring the matter forward at a later period. The meeting then adjourned in a body to the Delmonico Cafe, where lunch was partaken of. At 11 5 p. m. order was again called, and the following papeis were read: "Strawberries," by J. Ahlstrom "Grafting and Top Working," by J. Wieklund. "Tomato Culture," by F. W. Powell. "Picking and Marketing of Ap ples for the Local Market," by P. H. F»ye. "Pruning of Trees," by C. C. Selvig. The reading of the various papers was listened to with a great deal of interest, and the many questions a-ked of the readers gave evidence of ihe intense interest taken in the vaiious subjects by the members present. The papers had been care fully prepared, and gave proof that the wi iters had made themselves practically acquainted with the sub jects handled. After the finance report of the secretary had been approved, the election of officers for the ensuing year took place, and the list is as fobows: Piesident, P. H. Frje vice pres ident, J. Ahlstrom secretary-treas urer, C. C. Selvig executive board —S. J. Walgren, E. R. Rasmuson, J. Kleberg legislative committee— H. Frve, C. C. Selvig, F. W. Powell delegate to state meeting, J. Kleberg alternate to state meet ing, S. J. Walgren. It was also decided that a sum mer meeting be held some time to wards the end of June, and the in vitation of Mr. S. J. Walgren to meet at his farm and sample his strawberries was accepted. The question as to the date of the next meeting t1 en came before the members, and it was suggested that it be held earlier in the fall, in or der that an exhibition could be held at the same time. Alter consider able discussion it was proposed that a committee be named to go into this matter and also see if it could not be arranged to hold an exhibit uf poultry, vegetables, grains, etc., at the same time. They were to consult with all parties who are in terested in these various products, and to report the result of their canvas to the members at the sum mer meeting. The following gen tlemen were then named as the com mittee: Dr. J. M. Rains, Russell Spicer, J. Bjornberg. As the hour was getting late, and many of the members had a long way to go to their homes, it was decided to adjourn, and one of the best meetings of the Kandiyohi County Horticultural Society was brought to a close. The meeting was a most instruc tive ne, and all who were present felt that the time had been well spent, for all had gained some further knowledge of horticulture than they had known befcre, and it is by such meetings and the inter change of opinions, and the telling of the practical working out of a theory, from one to another, that men are enabled to produce a better article and more of it, thus giving credit not only to their own com- ^^^iiiii«^i.ifly»ii»Mi%i^w»^a1^ife)am munity but to the state at large. The members of the Kandiyohi Countv Horticultural Scoiety are out, first, for the county, and thru the county for the grand old state of Minnesota. Every farmer in the county who has a garden or or chard should be a member of the society, and anyone who wishes to know further about it can commun icate with Mr. C. C. Selvig of Wiil mar, who stands ready to answer all questipns. CEMINARY *4 NOTE? Alfred Jenson arrived last week to become a student at the Semin ary.

CANINES ARE BEING SHOT AND CREMATED "Every Dog has his Day" now reads "Every Day has its Dog— and then Some,'' for during the nast few days no less than 36canines have been sent to the happy hunt ing grounds. This wholesale dispo sition of dogs started about a week ago, following an announcement to the effect that one of iheir number had been found afflicted with canine insanity. The mayor then issued a proclamation ordering all dogs to keep their mouth shut or get shot, and as a great many of them were without home and friends and con sequently unable to secure the nec essary equipment, they were obliged to go. Saturday got away with the largest number, no less than ten being shoved into the big furnace at the power house on that day— and Fireman Larson says that it was the "dog-gonedest" fuel he ever saw. Yesterday's cold wave put an end to the massacre, no dog with any respect for his health ven turirg out. Willmar is said to have had a dog population of about 200 before the days of the proclamation. Out of this number only 20 have been granted a license by the city to live like dogs this year. Consequently it looks as if there are still 144 canines who are not recognized by law as having any license to live, and it is up to them to either pay up or "smoke Miss Ella Feig came home from Dawson for a few days' visit.

POPULAR AUCTION EER LEAVES COUNTY It will be a matter of sincere re rget to Willmar people to hear that A. C. Crawford will soon leave the city for Ottawa, Kansas. Mr. Crawford came here from Luverne about nine years ago and ever since has been one of our most prominent real estate men. Aside from his real estate business, he has also had charge as auctioneer of a goodly number of the auctions held in the county, and the fact that he has officiated at more than 400 sales is itscf a most eloquent proof of his abilities along that line. About a year ago, feeling the need of a change of climate, Mr. Crawford visited several prospective locations. After traveling a good deal and investigating conditions in various parts of Kansas, he final ly selected Ottawa as being the most desirable, and he expects to move there with his family in about two weeks. Mr. and Mrs. Crawford have been prominently connected with church work in the English M. E. church, and they will be greatly missed there, as well as by a large number of friends, who know them and love and respect them.
