SHORT GREEN
Great changes are pending ni
the paper currency of the coun
try The long green soon will
be made shorter and other alter
ktions will be effected which will
increase convenience and decrease
the likelihood of counterfeit and
fraud Economy too enters into
the plan
The paper from which bills are
made is very expensive being
ing prepared by an elaborate
secret process Under the new
plan a sheet of this paper will be
cut into five bills where now it is
cut into four It is the same sort
of homely economy which makes
holes in the doughnuts and then
makes more doughnuts out of the
material punched from the hole
While this change is being
worked out it is hoped to form a
feasible plan for making bills of
different denominations of differ
ent sizes so that a 2 note cannot
be raised to a 20 or a 5 to a
50 by the clever fingers of the
crook or the crooked fingers of
the clever Changes in the en
graving on the face and back
will add to the difficulty of tarn
pering or counterfeiting
The3e changes in the form of
paper currency are undoubtedly
desirable but they wont interest
the common citizen very much
All his money is too short as a
Jrule und his difficulty does not
lie so much in bills raised from
one denomination to another
in raising any at all
is
WINTER SIGNS
Weather prophets who base
j their prophecies on homely ob
servations of nature forecast a
hard winter Squirrels Ihey
- say are gathering largeer stores
of nuts than usual Corn husks
are thicker Fur bearing
mals have heavier pelts There
is more moss on the northern side
of trees Birds that winter in
the north have warmer coats of
feathers And so on through
the whole familiar gamut
These may or may not be
facts according to the observers

The county agricultural agent
is a public official whose business
it is to make available in practical
form the knowledge of agricul
tural science as developed oy tne
State experiment stations the
United States Dedartment of
Agriculture and the resultsof
the best farm praptico tie is
expected to show by demonstra
tions in the Held publications
and otherwise the application ol
such knowledge to local farm
conditions i

in tha county wnere tne ageni -employed
are called to the atten
tion of the farmers in his terrN
tory With those demonstra
tions before them individual
farmers are able to determine
intelligently the extent to which
they will apply the lessons of the
demonstrations conducted by the
agent
The county agent is an on
cer of the State College of Agri
culture and the United States
Department of Agriculture t
Ho may also be pmployed in
coooeratioion with the county
government or the county farm
ers organization contributing to
his support and aiaing in nis
work He is Inot however
oxpectqd to act as the business
ngelit of the individual farmer or
of group3 of farmers in carrying

work
Definite Plan of Worfc
As a cooperative employee of
the Unitdd States Department of
Agriculture the State agripult
ural college and the county the
county agents first duty is to
inform himself as to how Ije can
intelligently serve all the people
of this county He must get gen
eral idea of conditions of the
local system of farming the kind
of people he is to work with and
a knowledge of soil conditions
He must meet with represent
ative iarmers of tne county and
with them formulate n definite
accuaacy of perception And if phui of work in regard to their
the facts are as stated it need not
be acceped without question that
the interpretations are true If
Squirrels are gathering more
nuts it may bo because there are
more nuts to gather or there is
finer weather for the work
Summer and fall weather may
account for the protective cover
ing now in vogue in the fields
and woods There is no con
vincing evidence that - either
plant or animals have any such
prescience as the goosedone
prophets assign to them Their
growth sartorial styles and cus
toms of work and play are pro
bably a natural reaction to con
ditions from day to day shaped
by the present and immediate
past rather than by the future
There are more rational reasons
though for anticipating a severe
winter Meteorologists figure
it out along two lines For one
thing we have had an unusually
warm year so far and the total
amount of heat in any given 12
months seldom varies much so
II i t i m
me proDaDiiity is in iavor or a
cold winter to even things up
For another thing ithasbeen ob
served that winters get into tho
habit of alternating between
warm and cold and aro likelv to
keep it up for a period of about
10 years Three or four such
periods aro on record with severe
winters following mild winters in
surprising uniformity They say
that such a period seems to have
begun four years ago with first
a bitterly cold winter then a
mild one again If there is any
thing in this we or now due for
another arctic period
It is all guesswork at best
Nobody knows Just the same
when the goosebone prophets and
the scientists agree its just as
-well to emulate the squirrels and
h
Jay in a good Bupply of fuel
3
more ureent problems
As he must endeavor to reach
as many of the people- as pos
sible and help thpm raise the
average standard of farm prac
tices there must be a number
of concrete demonstrations well
scattered over the county from
which definite reports of results
can bo secured The county
agents strength of leadership is
demonstrated by his abjjjty to
perform his duties without drift
ing into superficial work to
maintain a well balanced program
to distinguish between essentials
and nonessentials under existing
conditions to get people to help
tnemseives ana to cooperate
with them in such a way as to
secure their assistance and to
assifit them in making and carry
ing out the general program
While the county agents posi
tion and duties make him the
leader in agricultural subject Me
should have a sufficient general
knowledge to advise dnthe lead
ing questions and he should know
on what specialist to call for help
on technical or difficult problems
that may arise
Those in charge of cooperative
extension work both in the
United States Department of
agriculture and tho acrricultural
colleges believe that the agents
should assist tho farmers of tho
countv with every problem con
nected with thelrjbusiness from
the preparation of tho soil to the
marketing of his products
It is natural for farmers to look
to the agent as their agricultural
adviser and leader in marketing
as well as production and to ex
pect him to give them information
on questions of harvesting gard
ening and packihg For the pustl
two years tne marketing probjem
has been the most vital one to all
branches of agriculture It is
believed that it is legitimate and
proper for the agentto encourage
cooperative marketing to obtain
information as to what products
uhould be worth where the best
