Tks Farmers' Institute
By far the most Interesting session
of the Farmer's Institute that has
ever been held in this county Is In
session here today.
It'began<yest«rday and will close
this evening The things that have
been discussed at this saeslon have
been practical Ideas for the practical
farmer who wants to make his farm
pay The chief subject yesterday, and
the one that will mark this meeting,
is the organization of what Is com-
monly known as the Truck Growers
Shipping Association. The purpose
of these organizations Is to get as
many farmers as will sgree to put
out from one acre upwards of pota-
toes. or cantaloupes,'or watermelons,
and by planting one hundred seres or
over of potatoes io any community,
the big buyers will send a msn here
to grade the products and will but In
car load lots on the track and pay the
farmer for hla product st the depot,
giving higher prioes than the local
market affords and taking all that can
be raised. Mr. F. 8. White of the
Frlaoc IndustrUi office waa one of the
speakers and gave a most Interesting
aooount of what has been acoompllih
ed by these organizations In other lo-
calities, and it Is deeply to be regret-
ted that no more farmers saw fit to
be present and hear this talk The
Assoloation will be formed. Seed
potatoes will be furnished oo terms
that all can resch. We will have more
to say later on In this regard, but we
would like to Impress upon every
farmer the great benefit to be deriv-
ed from these meetings, and the im-
portance from- a financial point of
view of Informing himself on the in-
creased returns by planting ten acres
of potatoes for market where they can
be shipped to the market In csr lota.
