Among th! resources of this vicinity
the potato industry, though secondary
to stockralsing, is of considerable- im
portance. For the lasj. seven or 'eight
years, during the dry years, the potato
crop has been uniformly good and the
price litis, been such yiat It has been
atull times profitable. Our, potatoes
have an established reputation for
quality in the markets to which we
have access both for table use and for
seed. Since it has been demonstrated
that this crop can be grown in our
soil during, the dryest years with profit
there ought to be a greatly increased
acreage in the county next year. The
introduction of new ami pure varieties
should be attended to not only by our
Intelligent aud progressive farmers
but by the county board who might as
sist by a liberal appropriation. In
eastern Nebraska the agricultural so
cieties experiment with the different
varieties of corn, wheat, oats etc., by
giving seed of the different varieties to
farmers in the different counties or
different parts of the btitne eountv I
when they possess diversified soil.
These are closely observed and the
details of their growth are reported
and from these reports much useful
information is obtained regarding their
adaptability and so forth. There is
but a small quantity of seed shipped
into this county and as a result it is be
coming difficult to find pure varieties.
If pure varieties arc no longer grown
then the seed outlet for potatoes will
soon be gone. This has always been
the most paying market. It seems to
us that the thing to do is to experiment
during 1003 with many varieties by the
farmers with the assistance of the
county commissioners and for potato
raisers to go to the expense of securing
pure varieties of seed, northern grown
which are known to do well here. An
agricultural society, which of course
would include a stock department,
ought to be a success in this count'
and if organized could have charge of
experiments in this line with potatoes
and also in the line of grasses which
fiourish in a semi-arid region. Govern
ment and state aid could be secured in
