each county to supply all necessary
wneai lor lan seeding.
Give Notice to Chairman.
"Any farmer who may not be sup
plied with tall wheat seed and who
wishes assistance in finding the seed
he needs is requested to apply to his
precinct chairman, who will in turn
report to the county council, we tug
geat alio that any farmer who may
need teed wheat should consult the
bank with which he does business and
te if tome arrangement cannot be
made for shipping in seed wheat if It

"The theep industry of Nebraska
should be fostered and farmers will
find it to their advantage to do to.
The demand for wool and mutton it
very large and very farmer in Ne

ture to keep a flock of sheep, even
though a small one, on his farm.
"At the present time the govern
ment is needing vast quantitiea of
woolen goods to clothe its soldiers
and tailors, and every ounce of wool
possible should be grown. Mutton
now comprises a large part of the
most supply of the country. There
is no better place than Nebraska to
raise sheep in.
"The-Nebraska State Council of
Defense .calls the ' attention of the
farmers of Nebraska to this important
matter and urges the multiplication of
sheep herds throughout the entire
atate. On the-small farm sheep are
especially profitable and useful.
