Member of a County Farm Bureau Discussing Seed Corn with the . County Agent one of Hie points of strength In America's agricultural organisation has been found during the war to he central organisations of fanners to plan and develop tin- best methods of farming for their region. That these organizations are to be of even greater usefulness In the era of peace Is indicated In a re cent statement addressed by the sec retary of agriculture to the farmers and agricultural forces nf the I'nited States As one thing that seems clear, tin secretary noted the need of perfecting ihe organization of agricultural agen Clas fur the purpose of Intelligently executing such a program as may neern wise. "We should not only have Ihe hesl possible organisation and co-operation of the department of agriculture, the agricultural colleges, the slate depart ments of agriculture nod farmers' as sociations." sai.l the secretary, "but we should especially strengthen the local fat in bureaus and other organiza tions which support ho effectively Ihe extension forces and assist Ihem In their activities. The perfecting of this organization is highly desirable, not only during the continuance of the present abnormal conditions, but also for the future. The local, aa well as the state and federal agencies, are of supreme Importance to the nation In nil Its activities designed to make rural life more profitable, healthful and attrac tive, and, therefore, to secure adequate economic production, efficient distribu tion and necessary conservation." The county organisations. Known ns county councils, county bureaus of ag riculture, or farm bureaus, often em ploy a county and a home demonstra Hon agent arid aid Ihem In their work They usually are composed of farmers and others In the county Interested In agriculture. As a part nf the organiza tion there are local groups or commit tees to aid the agent In different com munities of his county. At present there are more than 1.000. 000 farmers who are members of or ganizations assisllng the county agent In his work. In (he South special emphasis Is laid upon community organizations of farm ers. These are increasing rapidly nnd Involve the work among men, women and children. The tendency, and general policy of the work In most of the Southern states Is gradually to form rentral county organizations, oompOMd of representatives of the communilv or ganizations, tn deal. In co-operation with the county agents, with such problems as nre enunty-wlde in their nature. In Ihe Northern and Western states the county organization Is usually' l.nown as a farm bureau. The farm bureau Is a nonpartisan, netl sectarian, nonsecret organization represent Ing the whole farming population nf a county, men and women alike, and acting as a clearing house for every other associa tion Interested In work with rural peo ple Its primary purposes are: (1) To bring to the agent the coun sel nnd advice nf the best farmers In ihe county ns tn what ought to be done and how to do It, (2) To provide an organization for easily nnd quickly reaching every community in the county with Infor mation of value to that community or to the county as a whole. tH) To provide a plan for organized self help, enlisting the CO -operation of all farmers Interested In carrying out a county agricultural program ,,f work.

Times with out number, wells have been sunk to Kreat depths In the belief that event ually a plentiful supply would bi reached, only to find that water was not there, or that it was unfit for use. or that h mere hole or lump has been created, which served but to drain water from relatively near the surface. There Is no short cut ami no better Rutdo Iti this matter than Information as to the kind, thickness, porosity, and dip of the strata of the region and of the results obtained in neighboring wells, study of the land ski pes nnd character of the vegetation, and itaml ns t ton for evidences of seeps and springs, Regard I net the use of n forked willow, hasel or peach stick for locating under ground water, it can be said safely the method is without merit, although 10 called forked TiNt artists from their experience and obMfvat Ion of surf aye conditions usually are better able to Judge of the probabilities of ground water tban ts tho average person not thus trained So, also, there Is little tn recommend certain patented auto matic water finders which are based upon the possible, but largelj conject ural, proposition that electrical ex- t-hanKen between the earth and atmos phere lire stronger In tho vicinity of lUbtSllswieen waters.

Let us show an individual ease to prove by its handling iust how the system works. Slew pavers who are still doubtful after reading this ad may make a test for themselves. Mr. Slow, we will call him. is requested by Store ABC to clear up an overdue account. He resents the credit man's efforts to make him do bis duty, and decides he will strike back by patronizing (?) another estab lishment. He betakes himself 'to Store XYZ down the street. The credit man there interviews him. "Mr Slow," says the C. M., "we can't open an account for you here. Vou take too long to pay your bills." "Nobody ever lost anv monev on me that I know of," expostulates Mr Slow "That's Mist, where you are mistaken," the credit man counters. "The firm that carried your account on its books for more than sixty days lost the interest on the money that was tied up m your account, as well as the money that could have been made with the funds which would have been available had you paid as you should have done." "But how do you know that I do not pay promptly?" Mr. Slow wants to know. "By our system of exchange reports," he is informed. "I knew before you came in here that you were rated a slow-payer on Store ABC's books. We credit men keep tab on all customers; those who pay promptly are rated away up, and we do everything we can to show our appreciation of them ; you folks who take your own time about paying are also known to all of us; we know your credit record even before we make your acquaint ance personally, and none of us will let you open a new account until you have given convincing evidence, of a complete reform. Better get back to your old friends at Store ABC and work cut your salvation with them. We don't want you until you come with clean hands, speaking from a credit standpoint." Very few debtors fail to see the light alter an experience of this kind. And, in most cases, an immediate improvement in their habits of paying has been noted. Some, we are sure, are sincerely thankful to this associa tion for having set them on the right track. Pay up. Get on the right track without being set there.
