FA KMC KS J1EET AND DISCUSS
FLAN OF COUNTY AUFNT
About thirty fanners met at the
court house Wednesday afternoon to
discuss the organization of a "farmers'
bureau and the employment of a coun
This meeting followed a campaign in
n good part of the county by Mr.
Holland, an authorized organizer, and
a preliminary organization which had
been effected n week beforo at which
Henry Frels, living south of Suther
land, was elected as chairman, and
Frank Strollborg, residing at Bird
wood as secretary.
C. E. Gunnels, associated with the
United States Department of Agricul
ture, and who has supervision of the
county agents In Nebraska, addressed
the meeting in which ho gave In detail
the plans undor which the farmers'
bureaus are organized and maintained,,
and the benefits which tho farmers ob-;
tain from having a county agent. Tho
officers of a bureau consist of a chair
man or president, secretary, an exec
.utlvo board and customarily n rep-,
resentatlve from each county pre
cinct. The oxpenso of maintaining
the bureau and tho county agent is
jointly paid by the federal govern
ment, and tho county, each paying half,
and tho average cost of tho bureau and
tho agent is $2,900 a year. Under tho
law the county commissioners may
authorize the organization of a bureau
upon tho presentation to them of a pe
tition containing at least ten per cent
of tho farmer land owners of tho coun
ty. The payment of tho coutny's por
tion of tho exnense comos out of a
created fund following a levy made for
the support of tho bureau and Is col
lected from all the taxable property.
It is figured that each farmer would
pay but a few cents a yonr for the
suport of tho bureau and the agqnt.
Tho members of the bureau select fii
agent nnd designate his pay. Th
agent's duties are many, nnd If he is
an efficlont man, he Is a valuable as
sistant to any nnd all the farmers. He
advises on tho growing of crops, as
sists in stamoing but and preventing
the snread of hog cholera and tolnck
leg: ho a'ssists the farmer in finding
market for his produce: he helpB out
on the labor proDosItlon and is n
"trouble doctor" he is Jn position
to lighten the burdens of all tho farm

An old-time engineer says ho does
not remember a timo when the Union
Pacific was so short of coal at his
season of tho year as at present. It is
not an infrequent occurrence to find
no coal at some of tho coaling stations

A Warning to (ho Consumers of Coal I
We think it tho duty of every citl
zon of North Plntto and Lincoln coun
ty who has room for tho trtorngo of
his winter coal to buy his coal at this
timo while It can be obtained. This
would help tho wholasulo coal dealers
In tho different towns of Lincoln coun
ty to use what storage room they have
for storago for thoso who aro unable
lo buy nt this timo. Tho doalers of
Lincoln county aro Btlll nblo to get n
limited amount of coal, but later on
with more sovoro weather which will
hamper tho railroads and also cause
a greater domand for coal, wo nrtT 11
ablo to seo a coal famlno In Lincoln
county. Wo do not say this to get
people to hoard this coal so that oth
orsi will not get any, but it will help
other peoplo to get coal who aro not In
a position to buy nt this timo. Neither
nro wo saying this to ndvertlso our
business buy your coal from any coal
dealer you wish. Howovor, wo have
a full stock and can mako prompt de
