We were made to feel at home (like a county agent holding an Interview on animal husbandry) at one of the meetings, when Mr. Easten, agricultural representative of the Pennsylvania railroad, asked concerning a local herd of Shorthorns he had heard of through Will Johnson, of the American Shorthorn association. The entire week from Chicago to Washington and return was a pleasure, and although on two previous trips we had thought we had seen all of Washington, still our recommendation now to neighboring county agents is to win such a trip if they want to spend a week where every consideration Is made for personal enjoyment and professional information. And in all of it some of us could not help but hesitate long enough to be proud o£ the cooperation and support among folks of the home county through past years that made such an experience possible for the present Kossuth county agent.
