Minnesota's annual Christmas gift to the County Agricultural Societies of the state went forth 'Ax,s week when R. P. Chase, state :.Aditor officiating as Santa Claus, co,xpleted the mailing of checks to the amount of $100,832.97, state aid to the societies. The B:" ;tone County Agricultural Society :. reimbursed to the extent of $1,132.98, having reported total prem- iums paid amounting to $1,231.50. The Swift County society is reimbursed in the amount of $1,564.00 and the Traverse County society in a like amount. This aid to the agricu]tural asso- ciations of the state is directed by law and is based on the premiums paid by various societies, the maximum basis of pro-rating reinbursement to any one society being $1,700. The largest amount received by any society in the state is $1,564. /The 1921 legislature appropriated $140,000 for this pur- pose and this with the balance avail- ble was divided pro-rata at the rate of ninety-two cents on the dollac. The appropriation for aid to the agricultural societies made by the last legislature is the largest since the law was enacted and its encouraging effect is found in the large amount of prem- iums to exhibitors this year. The cash outlay for this purpose, as made by the societies in conform.Sty with the legislative act, amounted to $182,718.- 77. According to Mr. Chase state aid to county fairs has been of material ben- efit in an agricultural and community way. It has stabilized quite a few tottering agricultural organizations and at the same time it Idas given to the county fair movement a.degree of permanency which augurs well for the future of the societie, s. In this Year's division of the aid nearly every county in the state is interested. ! n all.nine= ty-six societies participate. COUNTY TO GIVE CORN TO : NEAR EAST SUFFERERS (Continued from page 1) fort to raise in Minnesota 90 Carloads of corn and 47 carloads of Wheat which is the state's quota of the 5 miV lion bushels being raised ir the United States. ' r ' Corn donated last year by the far- mers of this county after having been manufactured into hominy and corn meal became a part of the cargo of the steamship, "Datchet," at New Or- leans, according to Mr. Dawes and was transported to the Black Sea, port of Batoum. From there it was sent to Armenia and Trans-Causia where it is now saving the lives of women and children. The 90 carloads of corn to be raised in this state must be secured in the 45 southern counties, which makes an average of 2 carloads per county. Those who heard Mr. Davies talk at the Farm Bureau meeting were deeply impressed with the importance of relief for the Near East, voicing their approval in a resolution endors- ing an4 reeammending hearty sup- port of the Near East Relief campaign here. Charles A. Matthews, of Prior town- ship, was appointed by Mr. Davies as organization manager covering the southwestern counties in this state. Mr. Matthews has arranged to meet with the Traverse County Farm Bureau on Thursday of this week, and with the Lac qui Parle County Farm Bureau on Saturday, December 10. "It is extremely importantJ, says Mr. Matthews, to speed this work up as rapidly as possible if those under the care of the Near East Relief are to be kept from starvation during the im- mediate future, because of the fact that the Armenians have had no crops for the past five years." Mr. Matthews has placed the raising of two carloads of corn from Big Stone County for this relief in the hands of A. B. Kaercher. The corn will be accumulated at a certain elevator in each town of th county, and must be delivered to these elevators during the week commencing Monday, December 19, and ending Saturday, December 24, to be desig- nated "Gift Corn Week."

Cir- cular letters sent out 5393. in reporting on the State and Na- tional Organization, Mr. Matthems mentioned three main problems that were being worked out, those were, Co-operative live-stock marketing and sale organization, and U. S. grain growers. In livestock marketing, the Central co-operative Commission Co., was put in operation the first of August and is now handling all the livestock from over three hundred local ship- ping associations. This company sells for 25 per cent less than the other companies and has already acctmu- lated a 20 per cent dividend which goes back to the shippers and accord- ing to the rate this company is going, they will be handling better than 10,- 000 cars for the year. If this num- ber is reached they figure they can handle the business for about $8.00 per car. There are now 275 creameries signed up in the Central Co-operative Cream- ery Organization. The organization cordially invited to attend these ser- facilitates both the sales end and pur- vices. chasing of creamery supplies for the $ state. The U. S. grain growers have begun organization work in Lyon County and Marshall. All the farmer elevators in Lyon county were signed up the first week. -: The potato exchange was also men- t'ioned as coming to the front rapidly as a sales agency ihru vhich the far- mer could market their potatoes. An instructive talk on the War Fi- nance Loan was given by A. B. Kaer- efier. He outlined the" plan under which the War Finance fund was be- ing placdd in the agricultural districts and further,explain'ed his views of Better Rural Credi .... Mr. Davies, state director for the Near, East Relief, gav an illustrative talk on the fanile-strcken cdnditions of Armenia, Syria an4 adjoining na- tions in which the Near East Relief organization is functioning. He also presented some facts where the gift corn of last spring had saved many lives in this region. He said the Near East Relief like the Red Cross was incorporated under an Act of Congress for the specific service it was perform- ing, and that less than 5 cents for every dollar given was consumed in expense of handling.

S. grain growers. In livestock marketing, the Central co-operative Commission Co., was put in operation the first of August and is now handling all the livestock from over three hundred local ship- ping associations. This company sells for 25 per cent less than the other companies and has already acctmu- lated a 20 per cent dividend which goes back to the shippers and accord- ing to the rate this company is going, they will be handling better than 10,- 000 cars for the year. If this num- ber is reached they figure they can handle the business for about $8.00 per car. There are now 275 creameries signed up in the Central Co-operative Cream- ery Organization. The organization cordially invited to attend these ser- facilitates both the sales end and pur- vices. chasing of creamery supplies for the $ state. The U. S. grain growers have begun organization work in Lyon County and Marshall. All the farmer elevators in Lyon county were signed up the first week. -: The potato exchange was also men- t'ioned as coming to the front rapidly as a sales agency ihru vhich the far- mer could market their potatoes. An instructive talk on the War Fi- nance Loan was given by A. B. Kaer- efier. He outlined the" plan under which the War Finance fund was be- ing placdd in the agricultural districts and further,explain'ed his views of Better Rural Credi .... Mr. Davies, state director for the Near, East Relief, gav an illustrative talk on the fanile-strcken cdnditions of Armenia, Syria an4 adjoining na- tions in which the Near East Relief organization is functioning. He also presented some facts where the gift corn of last spring had saved many lives in this region. He said the Near East Relief like the Red Cross was incorporated under an Act of Congress for the specific service it was perform- ing, and that less than 5 cents for every dollar given was consumed in expense of handling.

Fearing a subterranean inwove we put out forty-five mile 'ff the shore, and on September 5, !led a violent earthquake which book the ship.

The B:" ;tone County Agricultural Society :. reimbursed to the extent of $1,132.98, having reported total prem- iums paid amounting to $1,231.50. The Swift County society is reimbursed in the amount of $1,564.00 and the Traverse County society in a like amount. This aid to the agricu]tural asso- ciations of the state is directed by law and is based on the premiums paid by various societies, the maximum basis of pro-rating reinbursement to any one society being $1,700. The largest amount received by any society in the state is $1,564. /The 1921 legislature appropriated $140,000 for this pur- pose and this with the balance avail- ble was divided pro-rata at the rate of ninety-two cents on the dollac. The appropriation for aid to the agricultural societies made by the last legislature is the largest since the law was enacted and its encouraging effect is found in the large amount of prem- iums to exhibitors this year. The cash outlay for this purpose, as made by the societies in conform.Sty with the legislative act, amounted to $182,718.- 77. According to Mr. Chase state aid to county fairs has been of material ben- efit in an agricultural and community way. It has stabilized quite a few tottering agricultural organizations and at the same time it Idas given to the county fair movement a.degree of permanency which augurs well for the future of the societie, s. In this Year's division of the aid nearly every county in the state is interested. ! n all.nine= ty-six societies participate. COUNTY TO GIVE CORN TO : NEAR EAST SUFFERERS (Continued from page 1) fort to raise in Minnesota 90 Carloads of corn and 47 carloads of Wheat which is the state's quota of the 5 miV lion bushels being raised ir the United States. ' r ' Corn donated last year by the far- mers of this county after having been manufactured into hominy and corn meal became a part of the cargo of the steamship, "Datchet," at New Or- leans, according to Mr. Dawes and was transported to the Black Sea, port of Batoum. From there it was sent to Armenia and Trans-Causia where it is now saving the lives of women and children. The 90 carloads of corn to be raised in this state must be secured in the 45 southern counties, which makes an average of 2 carloads per county. Those who heard Mr. Davies talk at the Farm Bureau meeting were deeply impressed with the importance of relief for the Near East, voicing their approval in a resolution endors- ing an4 reeammending hearty sup- port of the Near East Relief campaign here. Charles A. Matthews, of Prior town- ship, was appointed by Mr. Davies as organization manager covering the southwestern counties in this state. Mr. Matthews has arranged to meet with the Traverse County Farm Bureau on Thursday of this week, and with the Lac qui Parle County Farm Bureau on Saturday, December 10. "It is extremely importantJ, says Mr. Matthews, to speed this work up as rapidly as possible if those under the care of the Near East Relief are to be kept from starvation during the im- mediate future, because of the fact that the Armenians have had no crops for the past five years." Mr. Matthews has placed the raising of two carloads of corn from Big Stone County for this relief in the hands of A. B. Kaercher. The corn will be accumulated at a certain elevator in each town of th county, and must be delivered to these elevators during the week commencing Monday, December 19, and ending Saturday, December 24, to be desig- nated "Gift Corn Week." The eleva- tors named to receive gift corn are as follows: OdessaFarmers' Elevator Co. CorrellFarmers' Elevator Co. Ortonville---Farmers' Elevator Co. Beardsley--Geier Bros. Elevator Co.

S. grain growers. In livestock marketing, the Central co-operative Commission Co., was put in operation the first of August and is now handling all the livestock from over three hundred local ship- ping associations. This company sells for 25 per cent less than the other companies and has already acctmu- lated a 20 per cent dividend which goes back to the shippers and accord- ing to the rate this company is going, they will be handling better than 10,- 000 cars for the year. If this num- ber is reached they figure they can handle the business for about $8.00 per car. There are now 275 creameries signed up in the Central Co-operative Cream- ery Organization. The organization cordially invited to attend these ser- facilitates both the sales end and pur- vices. chasing of creamery supplies for the $ state. The U. S. grain growers have begun organization work in Lyon County and Marshall. All the farmer elevators in Lyon county were signed up the first week. -: The potato exchange was also men- t'ioned as coming to the front rapidly as a sales agency ihru vhich the far- mer could market their potatoes. An instructive talk on the War Fi- nance Loan was given by A. B. Kaer- efier. He outlined the" plan under which the War Finance fund was be- ing placdd in the agricultural districts and further,explain'ed his views of Better Rural Credi .... Mr. Davies, state director for the Near, East Relief, gav an illustrative talk on the fanile-strcken cdnditions of Armenia, Syria an4 adjoining na- tions in which the Near East Relief organization is functioning. He also presented some facts where the gift corn of last spring had saved many lives in this region. He said the Near East Relief like the Red Cross was incorporated under an Act of Congress for the specific service it was perform- ing, and that less than 5 cents for every dollar given was consumed in expense of handling.
