These wonderful results have been obtained by men who have always found tinie to :ittend ooiinty fairs and It is a veil known fact ihat the exhibitors til the fairs are as a rule the mefi who have few failures of crops. In a recent artic'e in the Kansas City ^lar it was stated that "farmins Is an, industry that renuiros the hipli- est intelligence to make an assured uredly true and int when the big wa.v to the big in value when nu 'thiMls.

There are so many subjects of great 'merest that -.each and every farmer should be coiiveivant with, to conic b?fom the nic'ctinp, that cannot i>'< gbne into at this preliminary orgiiiii- zation. No farmer in Allen cmiiity should remain away from this meeting. The institute is in a position to obtain great results as the agricultural department will give every aid possible.
