We will take our last convention for an example, where more than forty nominations were made In the most liaphazard manner... Any person who happened to think that his friend should be nominated was permitted to do so. Nom '{nations were made by members,.-or persons that lived remote from where the nominee lived. Some ot these might have been made tor ulterior motives. We do not say thai this w&s �he case, but it might be the case, "with the result of much confusion on the part of the delegate who might not be well posted as,to the qualifications of the different nominees, as well as the convention as a whole. Should this be the case? Is it in keeping with the. dignity of our us-soclatlon? Should not even a nomln-' ationi for vice-president moan some-thlngr � Several reroedies migh't be suggested. One would be the appointment of a nominating, committee. This i^ the usual method, but It has the objection 'of tioi being all together democratic and is justified only by the necessity jof/some safe-guard.' Itdoubtless would ,be better than the present method.

PAGE Cost ot breaking, will be from one. to two dollar.s higher por acro^thati last spring, according to those^'Who are taking contracts. The price charged last year Averaged .about $4 an acre. ContractB have already been signed up by owners of outfits tills year for as Mg\\ as $6 per acre, while some' are signing up for ?5 and $5.50, according to the distance necessary to travel with th'b outtltB. . The reason tor the increase in the price Is, of course, obvious. Wlcies ot all repairs have Increased tremendously. Prices oT food have,, as everyone knows, also soared, and the cost of running an outfit Is therefore considerably enhanced.
