The Support of the Farmers and Bus- iness Men All That Is Needed to Ensure Success.—Immediate Evi- dence Required That Bureau Is Wanted to Ensure $1,000 Appropria- tion from Crop Improvement So- ciety.—State and Federal Appro- priations Assured. The story is tpld in the headlines. C. Fred Beshart who has just returned from Albany, where he attended the annual meeting of the New York State Agricultural Society, has had charge, of the detailed arrangements of the further organization of the farm .bureau and reports that 22 counties in the state are organizing these farm, bureaus, that the amount of cash available for New York frpm the Crop' Improvement Society of Chicago is limited and that not much more will be apportioned to this state, but that Lewis ceunty will receive $1,000 if its farmers and business men really want it. Important Meeting Called. The pnly requirement, new that a county appropriation is made, is that the movement must be backed by a streng local organization and in the absence of a chamber of commerce, the Lewis County Farm Improvement Association has been organized to stand sponsor for the farm bureau. The membership of this organization must be enlarged and for the purpose of perfecting the organization and in- creasing the membership, a meeting of the association and of those desir- ing to promote the prosperity of the A. agricultural interests of the county ' ..

It gpes witheut discus- Sipn that an irritation pf the body af- fects the.mind and that, of course, no . matter how produced has a detrimen- tal effect upon the progress of the child. An examination would often times bring to light some little trouble that might be corrected at once and with little attention. At our schools in LoWville an examination of the eyes and ears is made each year and this examination is made by the teachers. Some people are inclined to suggest that such an examination should be made by a physician, but I am not of that opinion. It is the duty of a teacher to know her pupils, and there is nO i better way of getting ac- quainted with them than to study them. If these examinations were iimifip'ftniented by the practiced physi- ^cian something worth while would re- sult, however. '' It is true that the state claims the right to< educate its children and in my mind to do that successfully means that the, state should go about the matter in an economic business-like manner. It seems farcical to think pf trying to educate a boy or a girl while some irritant exists. Any ill places one in an unnatural state of mind, and when a pupil is not happy in his existence he can not be train- ed economically. The school systems are expensive institutions and they are beund to become more so and a few dollars in examinations of the body to- gether with a few simple remedies might save much trouble and expense for \the state, home and individual. There are many mothers and fath- ers who are opposed to this sort of thing while on the other hand there are those strongly in its favor. If the use of common sense and good judgment in these physical examina- gpujd be guaranteed I am sure ^opposition 'would disappear. jfrom out of town were Mrs. Albert Peebles, Canastota; Mr. and Mrs. E.

Mrs. Kenealy sustained three strokes of paralysis during the past year, the third one occurring Friday night. She was formerly Miss Loretta Shepard, daughter of Anthony Shepard. She was born in Martinsburg 33 years ago. She was educated in Lowville, and for 17 years taught school in Lewis coun- ty. At the time she was taken ill she made her home on .Campbell street in this village. Her mother, Mrs. Shepard, died four weeks ago from the same cause. Her husband, and an infant daughter survive, also her.father and a brother, LeRoy Shep- ard, all of Martinsburg. The funeral services were held from St. Peter's church in Lowville at 10:30 Tuesday morning. Rev. Father George L. Mur- ray officiated and the remains were taken to Port Leyden. for interment. ducts, $7,42.15' w# : s realize in cash and food tB.ihe Value-of $2764.27. was consigned at the 'ceunty house. This item added to the cash disbursed for subsistence, as shown by the repert, makes a tptal for. the subsistence ac- count of $4752.24, providing that an entry of $2764.27 is made on the other side of the ledger, to the credit of the farm. The number of inmates was 44 a t the beginning of the year covered by the report and the same at the close of the year, although 31 persons were admitted during the year and the same number discharged. May Work With Farm Bureau. . In View -of the appropriation of $500 by the Board or Supervisors for the establishment of a farm bureau, the Democrat asked Superintendent Strong if it would be feasible for a portion of the county farm to be placed under the management of the director of the farm bureau, whon he shall be apopinted, with a view to making the farm a county demonstra- tion farm and local experiment sta- tion, on which improved crop rota- tions might be illustrated and \pedi- greed,\ grains and potatoes raised for distribution to the farmers of the county for seed. Mr. Strong heartily approved the suggestion and pointed to the report made by the Superintendent of the Poor of Alleghany county who raises pure bred Jersey cattle on the county farm, with the result that the herd earns an amount equal to the entire expense of keeping the county poor, relieving the tax-payers from any bur- den whatever on this score. \V\ County Home Ranks High.'Oa. It is a pleasure to note that «un\ county home ranks among the five or six in the state which are scored as perfect by the state board of chari- ties.

Julia Stephens. The remains of Miss Julia Stephens, who died in New Yprk Friday, were brought to Lowville for burial.

With the dawn of the New Year one of the cherished members of the Mis- sionary Society of the Presbyterian church, Mrs. Cornelia Stoddard Scott, passed to the higher life—one who at all times had her lamp burning, and light shining to help those around her. By her gentle and quiet person- ality and her sincere interest in the Society she had endeared herself to her many friends and associates. She had positive convictions as to duty in all matters, and never digressed from them. She was frank and outspoken, and always ready to give reasons for her faith. And it is the sentiment of this so- ciety that we extend to the bereaved daughter -sincere and heartfelt sym- pathy in this dark hour, trusting it will be brighter bye and bye. MRS.

A good ad is the best salesman a merchant can employ. has been called for Wednesday, Jan- uary 29th, at 2 o'clock at the fire house on Dayan street. Financial Support Assured. In a nut-shell, the proposition is this: Lewis county will secure $600 from the state, $1,200 per year from the federal government, $60 a year from the New York Central Railway plus free transportation for the direc- tor of the bureau, and the county con- tributes $500, which has been ar- ranged for. The $2360 thus provided will pay the salary and expenses of an expert i-whtj. wjll heEt^he^isppsajl ,pt every farmer in\ the cpun'ty^*wKfiouf^c»sC , fpr advice, instruction and help, whp will make a special study pf the soil types ef the cpunty, with a view to their utilization at the maximum profit, who will introduce superior varieties of seeds and improved methods of culture and of dairy prac- tice. In short, the director will take to the individual farmer the results of the expenditure of hundreds of dollars in experimental work, which can be secured by the farmer, at present, only at the cost of much time and study. To Be Had for the Asking. And all that is required to bring this about is the desire of the farm- ers expressed through membership in the Lewis County Farm Improvement Association, that these facilities be placed at their command. The village of Lowville has bonded itself for a large sum in order to se- cure the benefit of a lot of state money in the improvement of its streets. The farmers are in a position to benefit from the expenditure of a considerable sum of outside money without putting up more than fifty cents a year and expressing their de- sire for the outside money. BUT THIS DESIRE THEY MUST EX- PRESS. Otherwise it will be assumed, and justly, that they are not interested in the work of improving the farming conditions, that they are fully satis- fied with their profits, that there is no room for improvement in this county, that Lewis county has reached its climax in profitable farming! The director of the farmers' insti- tute recently held in Lowville stated to a Democrat reporter that the aver- age of the farming efficiently of Lewis county was not more than 20 per cent, meaning that in his opinion the farm- ing land of the county was not yield- ing more than one-fifth of what it might be made to yield. If the work of a farm bureau, through a term of years, resulted in an increase of 10 per cent in the profits of farming in the county, it would be well worth while, even if the cost was a charge against the farmers, which it is not. Mrs. Harvey FarringtOD attended the tenth anniversary of the Boon- ville Chapter, Daughters of the Amer- ican Revolution, on Tuesday last, as regent of the Lowville chapter.
