A feature of the convention which
will be different from anything in the
history of previous sessions, and or
unusual interest at this time, will be

Creamerymen ard buttermakers of
Oregon wi'.l meet In Eugene Decem
ber 7, to complete an organization
and discuss matters of Importance
to dairying. Dairymen are Invited to
attend this meeting, which will make
really three days convention.
"The Eugene people write that the
are preparing to accommodate one
thousand delegates to this conven
tion," says Carle Abrama, Secretary
of the Oregon State Dairy Associa
tion, "and I wish to make a personal
appeal to the dairymen of Oregon to
be present. Let us make this the bin
gest ' convention ever held in the
West. Dairying Is not on the best
footing and many are of the opinion
that it is growing worse. Consider
able dairy legislation ia being plan
ned, some of it of the most pernic
ious character which will o harm to
the industry. Let us meet in a body,
consider these matters, and decide on
what kind of legislation we want.
Then we will go to the legislature
-with sufficient force to carry our Idea
through and prevent any other legis
lation from, being passed." ,

Form of Organisation For Corn Crow

Perhaps nothing peaU more encour
agingly for the future of farm life
than the new Intercut which Is being
Umpired lu iur boys nud glrla lu thooe
thine, which iiert.tln to farm uctlvt-
tie. Boys and girls' agricultural clubs
nd the Juvenile grauge. of the Order
of Patron, of Husbandry are evidence
of a new order of things. In the agri
cultural clubs this Interest In fnrtn
matters very often has Its beginning
In competitive contests for prlxea of
one form or another, and eometlmes
the clubs hove been au outgrowth of
such contests, and so it Is that we
have club fcr corn growing, potato
growing, fruit culture, live stock study,
home culture, etc.
The first state wide movement of this
kind began about 1S03 In New York
under the aunirfeea of the College of
Agriculture of Cornell university as a.
development from Its nature study
lessons. This work hns now gone over
the whole stnte and has taken a vari
ety of forms, such as corn growing,
ooiato crowing, "fruit growing and
garden contests, with special prizes to
glrla for the best work In sewing
and brendmaking. The Cornell Farm
Boys and Girls' club now has a ruem
bershlo of 75.000. In Nebraska this
club work has been very thoroughly
organized, and neurly every county Is
included In the movement, fcany in
the fall a local content is held in each
school, the prize winning exhibits and
the best three essays being then taken
to a township show, then to a county
exhibit and finally to the stnte corn
growing and corn cooking contest at
Llucolu. This meeting Includes a
grand "corn banquet," which gathers
from 2,000 to 3.000 boys and girls from
over the state.
Similar work lu Ohio under tho di
rection of the agricultural extension
department of the Stnte university has
reached practically all the rural boys
and girls in the schools of the state.
In-Illinois this work begnn under the
Initiative of certain county superin
tendents of schools and the farmers'
Institutes. The exhibits of these young
nomi are frequently the most inter
esting at our county fairs and state
fairs as well. ,
The work which Is 'beiug done by
these boy and girls' agricultural clubs
Is JUBt the work that the juvenile
granges are doing or should do, and In
the juvenile grange even more can be
accomplished. These Juvenile granges
natitiitPd of boys and girls un
der fourteen years of age whose par
ents are members or ine uw'"'
grange, and at every meeting they
have their literary programs, all be
ing under the supervision of a matron
appointed by the subordinate grange.
It would appear to be quite practica
ble for these Juvenile granges to in
corporate tho work of a corn growing
club or others of similar nature Into
their own general plan of work, adopt
ing, so far as circumstances would
permit, the rules and regulations of
the boys and girls' clubs relating to
these contests. The following gen
eral form of organization as given In
farmers' bulletin No. 385 of the United
States department of agriculture may
be adopted, with modifications:
Article I. Name of club.
Article 2. Oblects of club.
Article 3. Membership.
Article 4. Officers. (A president, one

its the procuring and awarding of prizes,

THE BALDWIN PIANO
IS -THE BEST
After a areat many year, of practical axperlence In the piano bu.lne..,
we are convinced that In many re-pect. the Baldwin I. the beat In.tru
ment on the market. The Baldwin people make the be.t piano that mon
ey and skill can produce. No other Instrument will stand the test of
time like the magnificent Baldwin. Some of the most renowned .rtlsts
In the" world use the Baldwin and cannot praise It too hlflhly.
The greatest academic mu.l.lan of France, Raoul Pugno, -Honorary
Professor of the Conservatoire, Paris, celebrated pianist and composer,
uses and prefers the Baldwin piano at home and abroad. He writes:
"It satisfies me completely! A great piano!"
In the same esteem Instruments of Baldwin manufacture are held by
artists and connoisseur, without number In all part, of the world. Vol

But not only the artist, and connoisseurs delight In the praise of the
