The Short Course Plans
So much has been said about this
Short Course and Farmers’ Institute
work that it almost seems unnecessary
to further mention the matter. How-
ever it is a matter of so much im-
portance to our farmers that it very
desirable to fully impress them with
; the value of this work and thus se-
cure their co-operation in making it a
success. Tho work heeds no intro-
duction to the progressive farmer and
he is the one who is in the front ranks
: boosting it on to success.
Mr. Huulinan, who willhave charge
of the work, lias his plans all made
and will use his best efforts to do his
part and with your co-operation the
success of the work is assured. In
speaking about the matter Mr. Haul-
“This meeting needs no introduction
to the farmer. We all know the wave
of agricultural meetings going all
over the United States. You will
never have a better opportunity, to
get an ideaof what this work Oonsis's.
Bring the boys and spend a little time
time with us. If wo can’t tell you
anything good or new, we would like
to hear from you on these subjects.
| This is a mutual work and everybody
has a voice. If you don’t want to
enter class work, just come as a visit-
or and you will be welcomed. The
Commercial Club is doing a good
work and the farmer should turn out
in large numbers and make this meet-
ing a success. It won’t cost you any
money, so you won’t get the worst of
it. If you take the corn work bring
5 ears of corn with you white or yel-
\ low. If you take the stock judging
bring a good animal along to work on
and show what you have. We want
to see lots of good stock. Come.”
The Press wishes to emphasizes
all that Mr. Haulman sc vs. The good
which willbe accompli 1 •! willbe of
inestimable value to ca.

been assured that a rate of one and
one-third fare tor the round trip will
lie granted for the Annual Convention
which is to be held at Presho on Jan.
11th and 12th, 1910. Those attending
should ask for a certificate when they
buy their ticket to Presho, and this
certificate will enable them to get

Rnmared “Still Hunt” For County
It is rumored that the representa-
tive men of Philip are laying plans
for a division of this county in two
' parts with Philip as the prospective
1 county seat of the new county pro-
posed or present western half of Stan-
ley county. This is upon the same
lines as proposed two years ago and
only given up when Philip found that
the northern and western half of
Stanley county which is the greater
tax paying and better part of the pro-
posed county would not stand for a
! ‘‘twodivision” not desiring to be an-
nexed to Philip and help build up
another county seat octopus. There
is no objection to county division if
upon the right lines, equitable and
fair to all. That Philip desires to be
a county seat is alright, the people
of this end of Stanley county while
wishing Philip all success do not wieh
tto be on their band wagon, not be-
cause of any feeling against Philip,
j but that if there be a county division
;it should be at least in three parts,
and that situated west of range 24
and north of the Deadwood trail
should be a county by itself. If or
when division of comes, by all means
' have same upon permanent lines.
Should a two county division be made
now it would only result in another
fight for re-division later, with a
harder struggle to get away and in
the meantime the tax payers of this
' section would have been paying for
. building up another county seat, hav-
ing the same cause for complaint as
is heard throughout Stanley county
at this writing. Conditions existing
being most unsatisfactory. It is im-
portant that all in this northwestern
part of Stanley be on the watch that
no plans be sprung at the last mo-
ment or railroaded through as rumor
proposes, whereby a two division can
be made. It should be three counties
or no division, no less.—Marietta
