The Agricultural Short Course will interest every farmer and
every business man in Holt County. If you believe in your country
or if you want to make more money from the same amount of
work you are now doing you cannot afford to miss the Agricul
tural Short Course.
One of the main themes of the Agricultural Short Course will
be dairying. The future of Holt County lies in dairying. It has
saved the homes of more Holt County farmers than any other
one phase of farming. Dairying is destined to make Holt County
one of the most prosperous counties in the state.
Successful dairying demands an intimate knowledge of the
business. While Holt County cows have done well by their owners
they have produced but a fraction of what they should have ori
the same feed. Lecturers at the Agricultural Short Course will
demonstrate how dairy revenue may be doubled without additional
work or expense.
The Agricultural Short Course will be conducted by experts
from the state agricultural extension department—men who have
combined scientific study with practical experience. Nowhere
can more authoritative information be had than in these lectures.
It means the actual loss of money to miss hearing these lecturers
with their valuable information.
While dairing will be the main subject discussed various
phases of farming will be treated. Considerable time will be de
voted to poultry including a splendid display of latest appliances in
poultry work. These will interest every farmer and his wife. A
most interesting dairy exhibit will also appeal to the whole family.
Speakers on various subjects will fill two full afternoons,
Monday and Tuesday, February 4th and 5th. The meetings are all
free. There will be no collections or assessments of any kind, all
expenses being paid by the O’Neill Commercial Club and the Holt
County Farm Bureau as a token of their good will toward the
farmers of this county.
The Agricultural Short Course is given by the O’Neill Com
mercial Club and the Holt County Farm Bureau because they
have faith in their county and believe that this course will be of
mutual benefit to the farmers and to the club and bureau. Pros
perity among the farmers means prosperity to all others. Better
knowledge of one’s business means an increasing prosperity. The
O’Neill Commercial Club and the Holt County Farm Bureau ex
tends a cordial invitation to every one to attend and enjoy the
Agricultural Short Course.

But the money you spent,
which ought to have been
saved, will circulate until it
reaches the hands of some
one who does save—then he

it’s easy to acquire once
you’re started. A dollar will
open an account here and
will draw 5% interest.
