C. L. Guttoraou , svho was horn on a
dairy farm in northern New York
and waB brought up in the buisness ,
made an excellent spoach in
advocacy of dairy busiuoss for Custor
County and Nebraska. He said
those who followed dairying in
this country were the only class of
people "who have- the dead mortal
cinch on their business , " while all
other business is effected and some
times completely paruly/.od by hot
winds , drouth or hail , the man depending -
pending upon his cows for his sup
port could not bo driven out. Uo
advocated improving the milk OOWB
and providing shelter and food for
them and good returns was sure to

On Monday but three milk routs
had ho on provided with carriers.
For the South-Went J. H. Palmer
was Hoourcd to deliver the milk to
the station ; in the North-East W.
P. Wootors ; and the South route
L. O. llobluo. ' 1 ho E t and South
East had not yet completed arrangements -
monts for carriers. Pory Foster of
Mason City has charge of the
Station hero , and Mr. McCurry
will remain several days to com
plete the work ot establishing route
and eooing the work start oil. The
price paid for cream in 18 cents at
the present time. Upon the whole
the outlook ie very favorable for
the Station to bo a BUOOOHB here ,
trusts it
as every one
shall bo. For the benefit of those
who could not be present wo herewith
with publish the p ipor road by J.
D. Ream one of the successful
farmers of Ouster County.
"Tho farmer who succeeds beat In any
country whether It bo new or old , Is the
ono who adapts his methudM and enter
prises more nnarly In harmony with the
resources aud conditions ot tuo country.
Ho nttompta to conform his Idona and
experiments to natures requkomonts
ruthor tlmn to attempt to bend natures
laws and forces to 6uit his preconceived
ideas. The most of us Ouster county
farmers cumo hero Imbued with the Idea
that wo could make a good living by
crowlnx strain for the market , and wt
did not stop to examine into the coudl
tloua and reason RH to the resources o
the country and Inquire as to the enter
prises for which it was best adapted
But wo proceeded to apply our precon
ceived ideas anO oven when the short
crops and failures oamo we failed to
lonrn many useful lessons they should
have taught us for wo were still deterrn
Inoa not to ohauKO our Ideas , consequently
quently our cry was for some method by
which wo could grow corn and whoa
during these drouth periods. This crj
for now and bettor methods was al
right for we ought to push the Invcstiga
tion along these Hoes much farther ami
mote thoroughly than wo have yet done
because wo must do some farming hero
aud if we succeed wo must do it Intelli
gently too. Hut while we are adopting
bettor methods and awakening to the
value of more thorough and oarefu
work wo must also awake to the lac
that nature never intended this for a
grain growing country in the aomtnoi
acceptance of the term. Those hills am
canyons were never intended for the
plow and the ouo who conceives the bee
plan for converting their nutrition
grapBos Into oaeh and carries his plan in
to effect will bo the successful man.
It Is a fact that this country does pro
duce largo quantities ot gram and Ii
years of good crops wo do it very cheap
ly too. But we must give up the idea
of depending entirely upon grain grow
Ine for the marker , Wo must recognize
that the conditions require that grain
growing and stock raising should go
hnud In baud and that the dairy shoulc
form an Important feature of the etock
Interests ,
The average American farmer and
moro especially the western follow ha
become BO accustomed to doing thing
on a large soalo that It has become a
second nature to him and he has learned
either consciously or unconsciously to
dosplao the small things in hli farming
operations. Ho is bullion the whole
stxlo plan and aeoins to shun the rctai
features of farm economy.
Hut let mo suggest that wo Gusto
county farmers bettor somewhat contrao
our largeness of views and more nearly
adjust our Ideas to suit the changing
conditions aud the natural resources
that wo Hud hero. Tbo day for money
making In the bonanza wheat Jlolds of
the great west Is passing away these en
terprises are being trauBfered to other
countries where land and labor are both
The Improved American machinery
has been scattered all over the world and
the sort ot Russia the coollo of India und
the poor laboring cluisus of all the for
eign countries are being taught the arts
of the American farmers and today the
labor of tbo American wheat grower
comes In competition with the labor of
this ignorant class of foreign puoplo who
often receive but , eight to twenty-tlvo
cents per day for their labor. Is It not
plain that the American farmer must
diversify his enterprises and take up
hose lines of work best suited to his
urroundlng conditions and best caten
ated for the employment and develop
ment of his superior intelligence if ho
desires to aecoro and mentula the com-
orts ot lto ( that now marks the differ
ence between his condition of the farm
aborors In many foreign countries.
It you will visit the dairy districts of
Iowa , Wlscoubln and other western
states where they once grow grain for
the market , you will now ilnd that
nixed farming forngo crops , dairylug
md poultry raising Is the general em
ployment ot the farmers. And ihero
il will Ilnd a country that denotes
ibrift and order , thoroughness of work
aud management and also a prosperous
Shall wo continue to compete with the
Ignorant foreigner with his low wugeu ,
his Initu and hovels , until wo are reduced
in a like condition , or shall wo profit by
aud emulate the example of our farmer
friends In our sister states who have
abandoned the extensive or wholesale
plan and adopted the Intensive.
Wo stnilo at the Now England Yankee
on account ot his careful economical
methods. Hut lot mo say to you that If
wo Cuoter county farmers would adopt
some of Yaukec thoroughness and
watchfulness and care moro for the
Beemlugly small things about the ( arm ,
wo would eucceed much bolter than wo
now do and what Is moro the time is not
far distant when wo must do tula or
reap still greater diasHter us the result of
our neglect.
The establishment of successful skim
ming stations at different points in tbo
country will result In much good by Il
lustrating to our people not only the
value of thorough and careful work but
the necessity of it. There is probably
no other business that so quickly responds
spends with bet'er returns for thorough
manngtment than does the dairy and
probably none other that shows the lack
of It more quickly.
The man who lipnglus that the dairy
can bo successfully managed In the same
slip-shod hap'httzzMd manner that most
of us folhw in our farming will ba bad
ly disappointed.
It is a business that provide ) a broad
Held for the diligent application of In
telligence In Ha management. Of course
the skimming station rolie-'ea the operat
or ot much of the Intricate features of
tha regular dairy. But even with the
.station as wo now have it , there la much
for most of us to learn. We are told by
these who ought to know tliat not only
good breeding Is necessary In order to
produce the good dairy cow , but also
that the feeding from the time the calf
is dropped until It is developed into R
cow , is of great Importance. They tell
us that ono line of feeding tends to make
good care of the dairy cow are also
essential in the management of all
other kinds of stock , And as the
dairy business spreads over our
county and our people , become edu.
cuted as to the conditions it re
quires , the practice of allowing the
cattle to seek shelter behind a barb
wire fence during a blizzard and the
hogs to sloop in an open unpro
tected yard without bed or shelter
will have passed away and the more
business-like and profitable method
of careful housing of all stock in
cold stormy weather will have tak
en its place. And again I Ray , bid
the dairy business a glad welcome
on account of the valuable lessons
it will totoh in other lines of work
upon the farm.
