HORTICULTURAL
SOCIETY MEETS
Kandiyohi County Gardeners and
Fruit Growers Met in An
nual Convention.
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.

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

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. They all join in
wishing the Crawford family God
speed and good fortune.
The Olson Obsequies.
The funeral of Mrs. I. Olson
was held last Friday afternoon.
The church was crowded with
friends who came to pay their last
respects to the departed one. The
coffin was loaded with beautiful
floral offerings, among them being
a wreath from the Ladies Aid soci
ety, a cross from the county offi
cers, a harp from the fire depart
ment, and a collection of flowers
from the Luther Seminary at Ham
line. The following acted as pall
beraers: C. E. Lien, L. O. Thorpe,
S. S. Glarum, John B. Boyd, R.
Telstad and L. A. Tjosvold. The
remains were laid at rest in the
Synod church cemetery.
Among tho who attended the
