In tlte latter purt of I VI. a con tract between a Montana cattle own er and three Seward cmtnt y farm in wa negotiated. The owner outraged to load Hie tattle at In own expense and all partir agreed to accpt the cattle wright at load ing, and allow a lirinkase of 3 per tent in transit. The owner further Breed to pay two-thirds of the ship ping expense, the selling expense at Omaha, when the cattle were ready for market, and two-thirdr- of the lost of any teer by death from the ittne of shipment until marketed. No Mcer wa to be valued at more than $40 in case of los. 619 Cattle Fed. The Seward county farmer con tracted to feed the cattle at their own expense for not more than 120 day, to pay the remaining one-third freight and wiling expense, and to receive rte-third of the net receipt at the time of market. Some 619 cattle were fed. divided among the three farmers. The profit to each feeder was ap proximately $.'8. plus the hog gain, less his share, of the freight and sell ing expense. The first feeder lost one steer dur ing feeding and rvjacrc an average gain 4 270 pounds, exclusive of thrink age. The cattle sold at an average of $7.38 prr hundred pounds, with a few spayed heifers in the lot. An average of 45 bushels of corn per animal was consumed during the feed period, about 75 tons of Mlagc and II tons of alfalfa hay. valued re epcctively by the feeder at 28 1--rents, $5 per ton and $11.50 per ton. The excess of gains above 200 pounds was divided equally between owner and feeder. The second feeder put on an aver age of 277 pounds and sold at an average of $7.12 per hundred pounds. A ration of snapped corn and straw, crushed snapped corn and atfalta hay and straight shelled corn, supple mented with alfalfa hay, was the feed outline on this lot. Save Freight Bills. The third lot gained an average of 257 pounds, divided into 50 yearlings and 118 heavy cattle. The yearlings averaged 851 pounds at Omaha and the heavy cattle averaged 1,1" pounds. The heavy cattle brought an average of $7.05 per hundred pounds, while the yearlings brought Jg.7.50 straight;. The older cattle were put on an unhusked corn ration,1 fol lowed by a dry yard and snapped corn and alfalfa hay. This soon was changed to ground ear corn, includ ing cob. and alfalfa hay. The year ling ration consisted of a dry yard, bran, oats.' ear corn and alfalfa nay ration, followed by ground car corn and cob meal, augmented with al falfa. . , t Another feature pointed out was the saving in shipment on a feed and transit billing, eliminating con siderable overhead expense, as well as two commissions and two extra freights. One feeder explains, how ever, that all cattle cannot be han dled in this manner. Still another significant factor pointed out was that the cattle gainsf each lot indi cated that each feeder handled them in a way that the feed given the cat tle produced similar results.- Each feeder ran bogs behind the cattle, the contract providing that the feeder was to have the hog feed in addition to the one-third of the net returns of. the cattle when sold at market, which gain was another item of some profit.

A conference of manager oi to opeiative associations in eastern Nc-L-ratka and western Iowa will be held in Omaha April 12 under the auspices of the Farmers union audit department and the Farmers' union state exchange. This will include managers of elevators and stores, produce station, lumber yards and implement businesses. The purpoe of the conference is an exchange ol views and experiences on subjects concerned with the operation ot co operative enterprises. One subject that is expected to receive more at tention than others i co-operative buying in carload lots by associa tions located in contittious territory, with distribution in less than car load lots from convenient points. Other subject on the program arc accounting, merchandising' and capi tal requirements. A large number of managers have already signified their intention to attend. Later in the year a similar conference will he held in the central part of the state, and one in the western part. Urge Credit Bill. A. C. Davis, Gravette, Ark., secretary-treasurer of the National Farm ers union, is urging members to pe tition their congressmen and sena tors to support the Farmers union rural credit bill now pending in con gress. The bill provides for the es tablishment of a corporation, to suc ceed the War Finance corporation, for the special purpose of rediscount ing agricultural paper and taking care of the credit needs of farmers. Under the terms of the measure, the government would supply all of the original .capital of the corporation, but this would gradually be repaid from the profits of the institution, and when fully repaid the corpora tion would become a co-operative in stitution for the permanent use of agriculture. Failures Are Few. Failures among farmers' co-operative enterprises have not been so numerous as many persons believe, according to figures compiled by the Farmers union " audit department. The department has record of only four co-operative stores and one co operative elevator going out of busi ness in Nebraska since the business depression began in September, 1920. This number of failures out of 987 co-operative enterprises in the tate make a very low pcrcenisg. There may have bent a tew failure of which we have run beard." aid one of the Farmers union auditors who made this investigation, "but it is certain that they are very few, foe we arc in totrdi with practically all of the to-operalhe association in the mate." Interest in Local Herman "I have visited many Farmer union local in thiirrrnt nurt of the tate, but I dare to thai-it-tig e any local to show a deeper co. operative spirit or a fuller under standing of the needs of co-operation than tho.e people !of" said Waller Sandiuit of Walthill alter attending and addrekking a meeting of New F.nghnd Local No. SJU ot the Farmer union sis miles wet of Herman.

Dale oi 1'niven.tiy I'lace. a member of the organising force of the state rarmer union. He presented the work of the Farmers' union under three heads the ocial, the educational and the economic. On the social side, the Farmers' union brings the farmers and their families together for pleas ure, entertainment and fellowship. On the educational side, it arouses inter est in the whole range of subject in which farmers are interested as pro ducers and citizens. And on the economic side it seeks, through to opcration, to establish justice in buy ing and selling. Mr. Dale was greet ed by a good audience. Speak on Co-Operation. Craig C. H.

A well cooked egg dish is always a welcome substitute for meat for the light meal of the day. Fiscal loped eggs, curried, scrambled, shirred and stuffed eggs, egg salad and omelet are some of the ways of using eggs which have a food value comparing favorably with meat, milk, cheese and other animal foods. The following is a tested recipe for foamy omelet: Four eggs, four tablcspoonfuls milk or water, one teaspoon salt, pepper and two tea spoons butter. Separate the yolks and whites of the eggs. Beat the yolks of the eggs until creamy; add seasonings and milk or water. Then beat the whites until stiff and cut and fold them into the yolk mixture. I'lace the butter in a pan. heat, and turn the omelet into it. Cook slow ly (this is an important rule in good omelet making), occasionally turn ing the pan so that the omelet may brown evenly. When the omelet is set and delicately browned under reath, place it in a hot oven for a few- minutes to dry the top. Fold ami serve immediately. To fold an omelet properly, first run a spatula under the omelet to loosen it, then make a slight incision with a knife through the middle of the omelet at right angles to the handle of the pan. Grasp the han dle of the pan in the right hand, placing the back of the hand under neath with the thumb pointing away from you. Turn the omelet upon a platter.

Blair The Washington County Honey Producers' association will meet here to morrow, at which time instructive discus sions will b arranged for the benefit of county honey producers. Charles Gaudou, secretary of the state association, will ad dress the meeting. "William Iverson, a poultryman near here had a flock of Black Langshans last year that netted 70 eggs per day from about 2o0 hens. The county agent. Carl Oison, urged him to try a self-feeder. The result Is that he Is now getting 140 eggs daily from 248 hens. Jorgen Sorenson harvested four tons of grapes last year on one acre of land. -The production brought him 1460. It was the best crop he had raised and he attributes much of his success to the fact that he mulched the acre with Btraw. Several co operators have announced they will mulch their vineyard this year. "Hot lunches for every school chil5 In Washington county," is the slogan sug gested by Mr. Olson for the ensuing school year. Several hot lunch clubs were or ganised during the winter and results show that the hot lunch greatly tenefita the child in schooling, according to Mr. Olson. FILLMORE COUNTY. Geneva Cost of production records kept by Nebraska corn and wheat producers was one of the factor that prompted the reduction of freight rates, on these crops last fall, Lee W. Thompson, county ex tension, agents, declares. However, Ne braska did not furnish as many records as it should have done, he adds. "When a larger number of these cost sheets are put together they tell a story," states Mr. Thompson. 'One member of the Interstate Commerce commission, after looking; over a number of these reports, was amazed that such conditions existed in the mtddlewest. Nebraska as a state should keep more of these records, not only for this purpose, but as an inventory of their own costs. Fillmore county should do its share. Records should be kept on the important crops of the county in every road, district, if possible. To enlist In the campaign for better sires, better stock, a farmer is required only to sign an enrollment blank, use nothing; but purebred sires of good types and quality to head all the farm livestock, but does not necessarily have to own such sires, Mr. Thompson asserts. "By im proving the livestock over the entire county, each farmer can improve his own stock, so why raise scrubs when it costs no more, and usually less, to raise good stock?" asks Mr. Thompson. Six townships were represented at the millinery schools, held last week. Eleven adult and four children's hats were made, the total cost being $25.31. the estimated market value, $97, and a vaving of $71.69.

The Caps County Farm Bureau News, the monthly organ of tho county farm bureau federation, in Its cur rent issue contains the following state ment: "Cass comity will' help the Nebraska Farm Bureau federation whenever it proves that it deserves our support. The national federation has made a wonderful record and has been notified that Cass county will rent direct, 60 cents per mem ber to help continue the good work. But we refuse to collect $4 additional to send to Secretary H. D. Lute of the Nebraska federation, under present conditions. "Cass county was a member of the Ne braBKfe. federation last year and paid $5 for each member; 60 cents ot this should have been sont by Secretary Lute to the American federation. This was not done, since at the state convention, National Treasurer Gunnels stated that Nebraska had assisted with only $500. Nebraska should have sent Gunnels about $9,000. "The Cass county board asked by phone and by letter for a financial report, but were ignored. We want to know all about our own business all of the time. Cass county has one poultry club, one dairy club, four sow and litter clubs, one pure-bred pig club and one market hog club, according to L. R. Snipes, county extension agent. Two other clubs will bo organized eoon.

My cow v.erc grade, fart Durham ami part lertey. tlte lalfr Mpod predomiimt iiir. 1 found Hut whenever 1 Rot a male euti it ki practically worth less. On leepiug (or a thort time a record of the feed coiiuiiici ly the cow I found that they were- hardly giving enough milk to pty for their ited. 1 began nn invetiiation. I undertook ti ascertain whether there wa not some breed of cattl? that were Rood milkers and of Mich tie that the male ralve were mar ketable lor beet without. too much of a sacrifice. My investigation took me through the records oi all breed of cattle, both beef and dairy. I made two or three trip to Lincoln and discussed the matter with I'rof. Davis of the dairy department of the state university. I wa seeking to find if possible a breed that embodied a combination of the beef and dairy type. Ayrshire Dual Tvoe. As a result of my inquiry I l v came convinced that while the Ay. shire cow is primarily a dairy animal, yet they approached more nearly the dual type than any other breed. I purchased from the university herd two aued Ayrshire cows and a 2-year-old heii'er, all bred to bull from a heavy milk producing family. In making this chance ' in my herd I concluded to buy pure breds. 1 found that the initial cost of a pure bred was only a trifle more than a good grade and the cost of keeping one was no more tluui the other. With Ayrshires 1 found that if J could sell a pure bred male for breed ing purposes now and then, well and good, if not he could co on the market for beef with vcrv little if any handicap. Ayrshire welsh from 1.000 to 1,500 pounds. ThcV can be bought for $50 for a calf a few weeks old to $250 for a mature cow, ac cording to age and oualitv. Good Milk Production. Ayrshires as a breed give a little less milk than the Holstein and a little more than the Jerseys or the Guernseys. The butter fat content of 1 heir milk is considerably higher than the Holstcins and somewhat less than the Jerseys of the Guern seys. The average butter fat con tent of the milk from 560 cows test ed officially during the year 1921. was 4.1 per cent. My two Ayrshire cows are 15 years old. One fresh ened in September, the other in Oc tober. One is giving a trifle less than three gallons of milk, the other a little over four gallons of milk daily. Considering their age this is a creditable performance. If I am correctly informed male calves of this breed both grade and pure bred when sold for beef are acceptable by the packers with little if any discrimination. This with their creditable milk production is their chief asset from the fanners' viewpoint. If there is such a thing as a dual purpose cow it comes nearer being true of the Ayrshire than any other. They are the ideal breed for the farmer who is mak ing the cow contribute to the income of the farm where his chief activity is growing grain and hogs. Advisable for Clubs. I advise boys and girls joining calf clubs to buy an Ayrshire calf. If you are interested in Ayrshire calves, heifers or cows, write me for particulars. While I have no fe males of my own for sale, yet I anr in communication with Ayrshire breeders from all over the country and can probably buy them for you to better advantage than you can get them yourselves. My services will be free of charge. I will be glad to assist any one wish ing to go in the business in a small way or otherwise. My compensation will consist in the satisfaction of be ing of service in introducing to the farmers of the state what I consider the best all purpose cow for the farmer.
