Various Organizations Relating
to Bettering Farm Conditions
Will be Pushed. -
fm FARMERS ARE BEING AROUSED.
According to previous call, the
Good citizens ot Polk county assem
bled in large numbers, on Monday,
Feb. 3rd, and in meeting assembeled,
by a unanimous vote decided to or
ganize a Board of Trade to take care
of every legitimate business in the
To this end a. committee of five was I
appointed on organization, to 'secure
data and report to another meeting of
citizens for further action;
Now the movement is for Polk
county's betterment in every way im
aginable, and every citizen should get
his best thoughts to work, along the
line of his own business, and see if he
cannot aid this committee in devising:
the best organization possible, and
one that will do the work I will be
in Raleigh next week and will seek
all aid possible. Then on my return
will call a meeting of farmers in each
township for a full discussion and un
derstanding of the movement, and see
if the farmers of the county will or
ganize by townships, and then the
county. A it is, every man is for
himself, and "THE DEvIL TAKE
THE HINDMOST." We must better
these things. I have just made an
effort to give the farmers of the coun
ty nitrate of soda -through govern
ment channels,at cost, and have made
a signal failure because the farmers
have no kind of organization through
which we could use car lots . It will
be no trouble to organize the bank,
- the merchant, manufacturer, etc., but
the farmer. And I am sure by this
time that the farmers of Polk county.
are wide enough awake to ii.k -warn.
MZ f what 1 s coming if they do not
' organize. Ample : notice of these
meetings and when they are publish
ed 1 vnt every farmer in the county
to feel that his imperative duty on
that day is to attend : this meeting:
f ' morr. or ioss,.tne aesrany oi nemcr
this year. Then another ; feature of
this work will be another system of
poultry, schools, next August, by Mr.
Ivey, who Will - bring to pure bred
poultry growers the latest noultrv in
formation and hold a poultry house
Duiiaing demonstration in each town
ship. This will be a new feature of
the work; and Polk county will have
the distinction of being f the x first
county to start such an Witernrise.
This will ,be worked out fully by the
people themselves; by a well arranged
plan. ' ;- Respectfully,
J, R. SAMS, County Agent.
