Farmers 8oele.tr Meets.
GENEVA. Neb., Dec. J. (Special. )-The
monthly meeting of the Farmers' Society
of Equity was- held yesterday In the In
dependent Order of Odd Fellows building.
One hundred farmers with their families
were present and a dinner was served
In the banquet hall at noon. The society
la In a flourishing- condition and did a
very satisfactory business this fall.
The officers of the Agricultural De
velopment commission of Nebraska were
re-elected at the annual meeAIng at the
Commercial club rooms last night and
four new members of the commission
were elected to fill vacancies. TBiey were
Arthur C. Emlth. C, H. Pickens, Thomas
C. Byrne. O. W. Holdrege and Charles
The officers re-elected for the ensuing
years are: Carson Hlldreth of Franklin,
chairman; Ooorge F. OMmore of Omaha
treasurer, and W. 8. Whltten of Lincoln,
sec rets ry.
It was reported that gle.000 Is already
subscribed for the work of furthering the
county agricultural demonstrator system
In the state, and that more subscriptions
still are wanted. A systematic campaign
for subscriptions from the wholesalers
was planned. The committee Is to meet
Thursday noon for luncheon and for a dis
cussion of the plan at the Commercial
Fifteen Cownties as Start.
The commission hopes to raise funds
enough to get some fifteen counties In
the state operating successfully under the
farm demonstrator plan, as a half dosen
or more counties are already doing. This,
they believe, would be sufficient to show
to. the whole ninety-three counties the
success of the plan and crests a general
sentiment In favor of the work.
Prof. C. W. Pugsley of the University
of Nebraska college ef agriculture made
an oral report of ths farm demonstrator
work In the state as far aa It has come
mto vogue. There are now seven counties
in which farm demonstrators are work
ing. Prof. Pugsley reported that Wayne
and Scott's Bluff counties have taken the
necessary atepa and are now ready for a
demonstrator, but that no funda are
available to help them. He said he knew
of four other counties that hs believes
are ready, but he Is not urging them be
cause he knows no Immediate way they
can get the necessary funds.
Plaa Is Saeressfal.
"The plan haa worked very nloely wher
ever It la In foroe." be said, "and it has
everywhere been worth a great deal more
than the amount of expense t haa occa
sioned." Prof. Pugsley explained that alncs the
legislature two years ago had passed an
act allowing counties to appropriate funds
for this work one county, namely, Kim
ball, had already appropriated for the
work, and that there was talk of doing
the same In Madison, where a demon
strator has worked successfully already
for some time on funds furnished by an
association of farmers, together with the
government appropriation allowed.
Prof. Pugsley explained that one of the
difficulties Is in raising money In the
counties, as the fanners who join ths
association for this work do not like to
bear all the expense when they know
that ths farmers who do not join the
association are to get the benefit of the
demonstrator's services aa well as them
selves. He said ho could not blame them
for this, although there Is no way to
prevent the demonstrator from giving
the benefit of his education and services
to all who apply In the county whether
they be members of the association or not.
Especially is this true, ho said, because
only part of the funds come from the
asoclatlon In the eminty while the rest Is
supplemented by the federal govern
ment. The Agricultural IVvelopment commis
sion has for Its purpose the raising of
funds to help the movement along In scat
tered counties until It shall become so
generally popular that It will eY-erywhere
be self-supiHr1lng. "We have been slid
ing along for twenty or thirty years with
nothing but farmers' Institutes." and
Chairman Hlldreth; "and now we pro
pose to gt something more definite.
"Instead of filing the results of valuable
experiments at the state farm away In
the archleves In musty volumes and re
ports, wa prooe to send a man out In
the counties In real flesh and blood to
demonstrate the sclnntlflq truths to the
working farnx-rs, and thus Increase the
product on the farms."
