A. E. SCHAFER, OWNER COL Wm. WELLENDORF, Auctioneer. GOLD & COMPANY STATE BANK, Clerk "Plus a substantial balance"-- At a meeting of farmers and business men of eleven counties in Ellsworth, Wis., F. A. Sprin- ger, banker at Elmwood, said: "Old lady Dairy Cow produces in this state annually a sum equal to two and half times the entire mortgage debt on our farms, plus a substantial bal- ance. She has been a lifesaver r ' in this state the past two yea s. Not so hard hit Read this, from the August business bulletin of the National City Bank of New York: ......... ,:: .............. ' "During the depression the districts in which dairying was an important factor have been much less affected than others. Although dairy products declined in price the decline was less than in the case of grains and cotton. Dairying means diversi- fied farming; pigs and the production of animal foods." Changing from the grain farming to diversified farming as financial conditions permit must come in this section. This bank realizes that and offers its facilities to aid in every way possible. Firs00 State Bank Odessa, Minnesota Talking Sense If all of the counties in Minnesota had produced butter in 1921 at the same rate Carver county did ($8.12 for every farm acre in the county) the state's creamery output in 1921 would have yield- ed $218,099,351.12 instead of $65,805,969.24. More and better dairy cows will create untold new wealth throughout the Northwest. Farmers of Big Stone and Traverse Counties x find The First National Bank of Graceville and the Johnson State Bank always willing and ready to aid in the promotion of diversified farming. The farmers MUST realize the necessity of raising more corn, more hogs, more chickens, and engaging in dairy- ing. ....... -'   "WHAT OTHER COUNTIES HAVE DONE j .  ... THIS SECTION CAN DO."
