THE READING HERALD Pazes, Reading Lyon County, Kansas, March 6, 1914 Vol. NO. 10 FARMER'S INSTITUTE. March 7 is the date for the next Farmer's Institute. You, no doubt, remembered it, but there is more than the announcement this week.

We have the program for the Institute. Read it over. Everyone knows what the Institute is for. The Institute is a place for you to tell the other fellow what you know and what he don't. There is a benefit to be received from the meeting by all who come out and attend.

The last Institute was a very good success and this one is going to be much better than the last one. Everyone likes to tell what they know, and wise people like to hear it. There are many successful farmers that were not at the last Institute. Many were there, however, and we venture to say that they will be there again. You have the time to spend.

Don't make that excuse, for you know that this is not your busy day (time of the year), and you know, too, that ever; week you have enough idle time to attend an Institute. Be sociable; be a philanthropist in dispensation of knowledge; be a leader in your community. Make your community the best in the world, and maybe get your name in the paper. Don't come by yourself if you can bring a friend. Tell your neighbors that a Farmer's Institute will be held in Reading March 7, and invite him to come.

Spear, in Kansas Industrialist 1. Because it will pay. 2 Because the country needs more meat. 3. Because the soil needs more fertilizer.

4 Because the raising and feeding of live stock on farms enhances soil fertility. Soil fertility is the foundation of agricultural prosperity, and agricultural prosperity is the basis of general prosperity. 5. Because neither corn prices nor land values can be ed without the raising and feeding of live stock on farms. 6.

Because live stock utilizes farm waste and turns it into money. 7. Because live stock condenses values on the farm; can walk to the market or shipping point; can be transported and marketed at less expense; and realizes greater net returns than any other farm products. 8 Because the market demands younger animals for slaughter. 9.

Because pure bred stock is now selling at relatively low low prices, and those who stock up first and stay in longest will reap the greatest rewards in improved herds and more profitable returns. 10. Because association with domestic animals on the farm is essentials to the right devolopment of the character and partical knowledge and ability of children. I1. Because the presence o' live stock inspires a love for the farm, and tends to prevent desertion of the farm for the city.

I2 Because it is every farmer's sacred duty to leave his farm in at least as good condition as when be found it, for use by future generations, and this be cannot do withou: the fertilizing elements furnish by live stock. KING-SUTTON. Miss Madge King and Mr. W. P.

Sutton were quietly married at the bride's home in Reading, last Saturday evening, February 28, by Rev. C. A. Budd. The wedding was attended by the immediate relatives and friends of the young couple.

Mrs. Sutton is a young lady who has grown to womanhood in this vicinity, and has many friends who wish her a happy and prosperous life. She is bright young woman of much talent. For the last three years she has worked as operator on the Santa Fe road, and has made many friends while at work there. Mr.

Sutton is a dentist, of Blue Mound, and is carrying on a prosperous business. He is a stranger to this city, having made the acquaintance of the bride while she was away from home. He is a pleasant young man and will, no doubt, provide a good home for his bride. The young couple will make their home at Blue Mounds, where he will continue his dental work. The Herald joins their many friends in wishing them much happiness prosperity in their journey through wedded life.

Mrs. Wallace Jones, who has been in Kansas City, for some time ordering millinery supplies, has returned home and is now busy preparing for the "Easter Opening of the Very Latest Styles in Millinery on the Market." Her announcement will appear in these columns later. We note, with regret, that "Uncle Johnnie" Fagan has been confined to his bed for some time, and is not able to be around. We had missed Uncle Johnnie, but had supposed the bad weather had kept him close indoors until we were informed that he is unable to be around. Dr Reid will be at the Jacoby Hotel next Tuesday prepared to do all kinds of dental work adv J.

A. Gordon was in town, Wednes- The meeting of the Commercial club Tuesday evening brought out some more interesting facts concerning street improvement. A good crowd was present, and heard the report of the committee appointed to investigate the cost of improvements. The committee had acquired some very definite information in regard to the cost. From present indications, there seems to be nothing in the way of improvement.

There has been rumors of complaint since the first talk started, but none- of those opposed have had the courage to take a stand against it in public. We are not saying they shall or shall not pave the streets. We believe that it should be done, and will be done before many years go by. If anyone can show a good reason for not paving the streets and is willing to stand for his reasons in public, we will give them a just consideration. Some are against paving for no other reason than that it will cost them a few dollars of their spare money.

We don't believe that the paving will work a hardship on a single person, if followed as planned at present, and will benefit them much more than the few dollars they spend. If the town can spend the money so that it will do more good we are for it, whatever it is. If a man has some money, he should invest it in someting, and not leave his money idle. Street improvement is an investment, not an expense. All the talk we have heard in public has been for it.

If those against it want any support for their side from this paper they must take a stand against it in public, and not go around the 'corner and do all they can against it. We would be very much pleased to see some of our streets paved in such a way that the expense will not be burdensome, and the improvement will be permanent. From present appearances this can be done. If the merchants, the citizens of the town, or in a broader terms, the whole town, would take more pride and interest in our town and boost it along, these improvements would come of their own accord. GERAGHTY Miss Mary Geraghty and Mr.

Patrick Curtin were united in marriage by Rev. Fr. Victor, at the St. Mary's Catholic church, of Reading, Tuesday February 24, 1914, at 9 morning, o'clock. Miss Margaret Geraghty acted at bridesmaid, and Mr.

Frank Fagan as best man. Mrs. Curtin is a young lady who has spent her life in this community and is well known here. She has a host of friends who will wish her a long and happy life. She will make pleasant and happy home for her a husband.

Mr. Curtin is a young man who came to Reading several months ago from Chicago, where he has spent most of his life. He is an energetic man, and will make his way in young the world. He is a man who will provide a pleasant and comfortable home for his bride. The young couple expect to make their home in our community.

The Herald joins their many friends in wishing them a life of prosperity and happiness. Henry Frye moved into the Jacoby hotel, Saturday evening, and will take up the proprietorship. Mr. Simkins has had charge of the hotel for the last year, and has had a very good year. He has had many travelers to feed and a number of regular boarders.

Mr. Frye has had but little experience in the work, but we feel confident that he will succeed. He bas spent most of his life here, and is starting into the business with a host of friends to help him. The town must have a hotel, and the town, the business men and all who have a chance, should help it along. They have in the past and we know that they will again.

We have had the pleasure of knowing that we have as good, or better, a hotel in our town than in most any other town of its size in the state, and we believe it can be better. We believe Mr. Frye will do his part to better it. Hardy Carrithers, John B. Fagan and E.
