Harvest help will probably be very
scarce this year. Thus far there have
been fewer harvest hands around than
in former years. It is possible,
though, that the poor crops in North
Dakota will cause many of them to
shift to Minnesota, where long jobs
and good wages are assured.
The following is clipped from a farm
paper and just about states the case:
"We have noted the suggestion that
the cities be combed for idlers and un
employed, and that they be sent to the
farms. Shake out this riffraff from
the city pool halls and saloons and
send them to the country, and the
country will be worse off than before.
They do not know whether alfalfa
grows on trees or is dug out of the
ground like potatoes. In hitching up a
horse they wouldn't know which end
to put next to the wagon. We suggest
that these fellows be put into the
army. It will take a great deal longer
to drill them for farm work than for
army service, and will be more expen
sive Leave the farm hands in the
country to man the plows and the har
vesters, and put no handicap on the
farmer and stockraiser if you want
bread for the nation and support for
the army. The farmers and stockmen
are loyal and equally philanthropic
with their fellows. They will do their
Vote "Yes" For Bonds.
There seems to be a misapprehension
on the part qf some of the citizens re
garding the bonds to be voted on the
7th of this month. These bonds are
not payable by taxes but through the
earnings of the electric light and water
When the Electric Light & Water
Commission asked* for a bond issue of
$10,000 00 it was for the purpose of en
larging the plant on the old direct cur
rent basis, but after studying the sys
tems of applied electricity, it was con
vinced that the time had arrived to
change the system irora direct current
to alternating Ihis change cost con
sirerably more luoney, so the ten thou
sand dollars did not prove enough to
irake the change.
The Commission proceeded to make
the change with the aim in view that
the plant would take care of the extra
c,ost, which under normal conditions
it is believed it would, but abnormal
conditions have arisen, coal^ and all
other material used in the extension of
lines, poles, transformers, etc., have
advanced to such jan extent, that it is
impossible to meet the operating ex
penses and pay the obligations at this
As the matter stands, the city owes
the amount of the proposed bonds in
the form of outstanding warrants
drawing 6 per cent interest. These
warrants, when due must be paid out
of any money, that may be available
in the fund, regardless of whether it
leaves the commission without work
ing capital or not.
It is therefor necessary to trans
form these warrants into bonds, said
bonds to be payable at such time as it
will be possible for the plant to pay
them from its earnings. The bonds
will draw a lesser rate of interest
than the warrants, so it is economy to
issue the bonds.

As no two lots run alike, it is very
difficult to mix straight by-products
of oats, barley, rye, corn, cotton-seed,
flaxseed, etc., by measure, because it is
purely guessing. Only a few years ago
intentional fraud or unintentional
carelessness was the rule. Before the
feed laws were passed, each manu
facturer adulterated all the trade
would stand.
Every can of feed sold to the con
sumer is not analyzed, and the farmer
cannot become a feed expert because
he has no laboratory. Not one car
out of five hundred is officially in
spected. In the old days country
millers were throwing feeds together
with no knowledge of feed and were
ruining Valuable cows and making the
farmer poorer. In those days the feed
tables were wrong, tile feeds didn't,
fit the tables the digestible analysis
method was incorrect feed standards
for animals were not agreed upon nor
complete the animals didn't fit the
standards the buyer didn't -know
what was in the feeds he bought to
mix and tlfere was an Unavoidable
variation in the concentration of the
These conditions have been largely
overcome through the joint action of
the government and state experiment
stations and the mixed feed manu
facturers who have every facility for
maintaining a umiorm prou^c
using these scientifically prepared
feeds, many a herd has doubled its
yield ajnd profits. There are some
painters who can buy lead, oil and
dryer and mix and match their own
color uniformly tout the best painters
of today have learned that mill-made,
brands are much better than any
thing they can' mix with a paddle.
The same is true in fertilizers to a
great extent. In mixed feeds there
can be no economy in home mixing
because the mixing factories, being
near the large markets, can utilize
by-products to the very best advan
tage. "Home mixing cannot be accom
plished at one-tenth of a cent per lb.,
besides the result is never twice alike
and cannot be without the help of a
laboratory. I ,3WJbV'*
