Urge Farmers of County'

will be a fine opportunity for farmers
to get much needed information
on better farming, especially
soil improvement. Every aCre

As a dealer in livestock, and
knowing what it would mean to
the county if wc had all the farms
stocked with high grade cattle and j
more of them. I want to urge every
farmer, large or small, to attend
the Farmers" institute to be
.held in Boone next week.
It :s an opportunity to get information
that wc all heed just
ARL1E W. BROWN.
It seems that the Farmers' Institute
should appeal to every
farmer w.'.io wants to improve his
soil, grow better crops, have better
livestock and have a better knowledge
of marketing. Never before
h?.? a faculty of highly-trained people
ever come to us for three days.
If the people of this county will
take advantage of the opportunity
it will mean much to them.
B. B. DOUGHERTY.
1 have just learned of the Farmers'
Institute which is to be held
at the Appalachian State Teachers
Collope on January 28, 29 and 30,
and want to congratulate the farmers
of Watauga County on having
an opportunity to hear trained men
discuss farm problems of our county.
1 intend to attend every meeting
because 1 know that it will be
worth at least ?150.00 per ye-r to
me to learn how to prevent and
cure grubs and stomach worms in
the few sheep which 1 own.
i sincerely hope and believe that
every progressive farmer in Watauga
County will attend every one
ot these meetings.
BAXTER M. LINMEY.
In our opinion no more forward
step looking to the best interests of
Watauga County has been taken in
several years, than the campaign
launched by the citizens of this
county for better livestock, more
production and greater economy
along all agricultural lines. As a
result of these efforts we .Save
called together some of the best
heads in North Carolina to discuss
with us the all-important questions
of livestock, horticulture, soil
improvement and marketing, which
we believe will ultimately place
Watauga County in the high position
she deserves to occupy in the
farming life of North Carolina.
Our county is sua agricultural
and liv^itArlf ??J L.
perity will be measureil exactly in
proportion. to the degree of success
attending her agricultural endeavors.
We helieive our farmers
prosper in proportion to fc'ie intelligent
thought they give their problems,
and the Farmers Institute
next week offers a free and equal
opportunity for all Wataugans to
receive an authoritative education
along every farming line. A more
intensive farming program, in our
opinion, will result in several hundred
thousands of additional assets
to the county each year and
thus increase bank deposits, Building
and Loan subscriptions, and
promote a financially independent
citizenship. Our officials are practically
to a man, not only interested
in farming, but are active farmers
themselves, and they consider
the problems of the farmer their
individual problems. Meet us at
the Institute and let's have a pleasant
and profitable time together.
