With the recent warmer weather our neighbors can come out on the roads again, hauling grain, hay and bolts. The good price of hay may induce some farmers to sell more than it would be advisable. If they could know how soon the meadows will be green, it would help matters considerably. According to general accepted ideas half the winter feeding is done at candlemas.
Potatoes have a hard time of it this year. In the fall they froze on the field and now they froze in many cellars. Besides they are used up every day at the meals.
As the days grow longer there are coming into the minds of the farmers the questions concerning plowing and seeding. Now is the time to get seed grain ready while there is time between daily chores. Clean seed is an essential part of a clean crop. The fanning mill can not be used too much.
The roads in some places are a bad proposition to tackle with heavy loads and as the snow keeps on drifting the center of the roads is quite often as high as the fences, and if a horse if compelled to turn out it goes down to the bottom and a light cutter is liable to go over.
Mrs. H. Prust and Mrs. Dan Cattanach made a business trip to Marshfield, Monday.
The M. W. A. and Royal Neighbors held an open installation last week. Some of the neighboring Camps attended and also quite a number of invited friends. A good time was had.
