Is An Organization Being
Formed in Charlevoix County.
It is proposed to employ In Charle
voix county a farm, expert under con
tract with the United States govern
ment. Kent. Kalamazoo and Allegan
counties have already engaged such
expert and they are now at work,
giving good satisfaction.
The duty of t he expert is to advise
with the farmers respecting the prep
aration of their soil, the rotation of
their crops, and improved market
conditions. It Is expected that he
will be a horticulturist and will be es
pecially qualified to be of assistance
to f i u it ..grower., lie will be in con
tinual touch with the best authori
ties on agriculture in both Washing
ton and Latoing. If unable to ans
wer the quesi ions asKed. he will find
a man who can. If necessary, special
ists will b brought into the county
to assist in the solution of difficult
It is estimated that the salary of
tins expert will be $1,800 per year and
that the cost of transportation, cleri
cal hire, and office equipment will be
$ 1.2(H) per year
Toward- these expenses the United
States will pay"$l2U0. Th (imp Im

yvhich male humanity has an exclusive

in which the intelligence of women is

women are concerned, but-even more
because the problems of goverment
