Agricultural Development by
Uniting All Interests to Assist. !'
How to Develop Agriculture and
Commerce Through a County
National Crop Improvement Service.
There is a certain class of men, and
finfortunately many of them arc now
in authority, who look with suspicion
and prejudice upon the development
of all .agricultural projects, except
their own particular one.
W. J. Bryan, Secretary of State, in
a talk before the Chamber of Com
merce, Trenton, New Jersey, during
"Team work is the slogan of mod
ern thought. The surest test of a
man's sanity is his willingness and
ability to co-operate with others in a
great work. The surest evidence of a
man's insanity is his inability to co
operate." It is the purpose of the Crop Im
provement Committee of the Council
cil of Grain Exchanges to learn of
the good work of all the forces, and
to encourage the County Farm
Bureaus to adopt as many of these
plans, for their own development, as
All of these projects must be car
ried along together, which means
team work. This can only be accom
plished by an organization, which par
takes of both an agricultural and a
commercial club, with practical com
mittees appointed to take charge of
each phase of the work.
Modern life is so complex that,
like the game of JackStraws, it is
almost impossible to segregate one
subject without disturbing the entire
"One thing at a time" is a very
good slogan, but who shall say which
one thing shall be developed at the
expense of all the others?
This world is made of little things,
and the great come by simple addi
tion. Therefore, in appointing county
wide committees, it is necessary to
select men who have a financial in
terest in the success of that portion
of the work, which is placed in their
charge. Then by correlating all of
this work and by arousing a com
munity spirit, the work in each county
will become a success.
ROAD DRAGGING LAW.
Work for the County Road Commit
tees. Highway Board Should be
Recommended by and Co-operate
With the Advisory
Council of County
National Crop Improvement Service,
A new road law enacted by the
recent Missouri Legislature that ap
plies to every county in Missouri is
what is designated as the "County
Scat Road Dragging Law," the pur
pose and provisions of which arc to
have all of the public roads connect
ing the county scat towns of all ad
joining counties improved by a regu
lar systematic plan of road dragging.
This law provides for the appoint
ment of a county highway board by
the county court, to consist of three
members, of which the county high
way engineer is one, who hold their
positions for two years and serve
without compensation. This board,
acting with the state highway en
gineer, is authorized and required to
select "the most practical road from
the county seat to the county seats
of each adjoining county." After
these particular routes, which are to
be designated as county seat roads,
have been selected the state high
way engineer certifies to the state
auditorthe number of miles of such
highway in each county. The county
highway board contracts to have such
roads dragged under certain pre
scribed regulations at a cost per mile
per year of not exceeding $15, which
amout is paid out of the state good
roads fund, and all claims under these
contracts arc audited jointly by the
state highway engineer and the
county highway board and certified
to the state auditor for payment, and
these payments to-the several coun
ties are made direct and without any
requirement that the'counties dupli
cate said amount or any portion
therof. In other words, it is a direct
free donation from the state road
fund to the several counties.
HOW TO ACHIEVE A SUCCESS.
National Crop Improvement Service,
"Many communities spend time and
money in trying to develop resources
that they haven't," says Mort. L.
Bixler, Secretary Meridian Progres
sive League, Meridian, Miss. "They
imagine that factories are necessary
to make a city, and yet commercial
clubs have often secured factories,
which have been rank failures on ac
count of the lack of natural resources.
We believe that, in order to achieve
rhe greatest success, every com
munity must develop its agricultural
resources and in order to do this, the
business men must y co-operate with
the farmers in bringing about mod
"Many communities overlook the
greatest item, and, like the old fable
of the 'Dog ar.d the Water Dog,' !n
attempting to grasp something pos
sessed by others, neglect that which
h'ay already have."
