C. O. Drayton of Greenville. 111.,
ras not only elected for the sixth
time yesterday president of the Na
tional Farmers' Equity union in the
convention at the Castle hotel, but
his salary was doubled.
Ha la to get $2,000 a year instead
of $1,000 as in the past.
John L. Boles of Liberal, an., made the
motion first to raise the prendent to
$1,600. "This man has tolled hard arid
has built thia institution up from nothing
to a treat, bin. powerful national insti
tution, and here we are paying him
S1.000," he said. "Why, men, 1 hire ho
boes on my farm and they charge me for
day labor at the rate of pretty nearly
1.000 a year. Yes, and the little country
school teachers come out there on the
farm and demand wages almost that
Everybody Favors a liaise.
In a moment the motion had 1U second
and waa rolling along smoothly without
a single bit of opposition. Everybody
was giving It another boost. That is why
it waa not voted through immediately.
.Everyone wanted to say a good word
for the president and apologize for not
having raised him sooner.
'hen Alex E. Borg of Java, 8. D.,
caught the spirit of the B&nta Claus sea
son so strongly that he leaped to his feet
and moved to make it J2.0. Time was
worth tnoney to the president.
J. P. Larson of Mott, N. ., seconded
the 12,000 amendment, and said, "It's a
dlBgrace the little money we've been pay
ing a man with the brains that our pres
ident has. We're paying our local man
ager up there In Dakota $1,600 a year,
and our bookkeeper $75 a month, and our
yard men big money, and all the time
we're making money like dirt. Why
should we disgrace ourselves by paying
our national president a little salary
like $1,000, or even $1,500? Make it $2,000."
And they did make it $2,000 unanimously.
A. Hoffman of Leola, g. D.. was elected
Vloe president. The state bank of Holies

to arms for the American dairy industry.

"Per capita throughout the whole
United States." he said, "we are consum

of a pound of cheese. And wo are

He gave figures also showing that the
formers of Nebraska are at present milk
ing 700,000 dairy cows, and that the value
of dairy producta In Nebraska for 1913
waa about $30,600,000.
He called attention to the fact that
there Is now considerable agitation for
creameries throughout the country, and
that there are many promoters around
who want to promote creameries for the
farmers any time, and any place, selling
the stock, building the plant and turn
ing it over to the co-operative company
for a aet price. Ho advised the farmers
to beware of these, as the creamery
should spring from the heart of a dairy
community and not from the heart of
the professional promoter, who would be
willing to build one where there was no
demand for it, providing he could talk
fast enough to sell the stock and get his

a package of oatmeal and a few matches.
A case of coal oil was also washed
