BOYS TO ATTEND
Final arrangements are being
completed for tliu ilth Annual

hold at College Station, August 2ndi
to 7th, inclusive. The Indication* are
that this will be the lurgest and most
successful Short Course ever held In
the Southwest, according to County
Agent G. Dudley Everett,
It is Imperative that everyone go-
ing from this territory secure receipt
for his railroad ticket, as he will
have to present this to un officer . of
the College In order to secure the
one-half rate on the return. Tickets
are to bo on sale July ill and August
1 and 2.
Married couples, both agents and
regular students, will bo given rooms
un the first and second floors of Mll-
ner Hall, Everett said. They, togeth-
er with all other Short Course stu-
dents, will register ut the main build-
ing, Agents who expect to bring their
wives should notify me immediately
so rooms can be reserved for them.
The following farm boys of the
county will accompany County Agent
Everett to College Station to attend
the Short Course: W. E. Ward,

THE RURAL TELEPHONE RAISE.
(R. C. HORN.)
So fur as I have learned (he people
In the rural districts do not expect to
keep the phones at tin* new rates.
While the Company raised the rates
for city residences twenty-five cents
• hey raise the rural one dollar and
twenty-five cents. The writer nn<l sev-
' ral others gave the management no-
tice to come and get their phones, but
they have not done so and nearly a
month hns passed. While the phones
remain in our homes we expect to use
them. We did not bring them out and
tlo not feel It our duty to return them.
When there were two companies In
the city and we had competition the
McKinney Telephone Company charg-
ed the rural people 75cts. per month.
The Union Company charged one dol-
lar. After the merger the rate was
one dollar. This is all the contract
that we have ugreed to, and all we will
pay except a new contract is made.
But says some one, "The City Com-
mission allowed the new rate." Well
I was not aware that the City Commis-
sion reached beyond the city limits.
We were not allowed to vote for them.
The rates fixed by them do not apply
to the rural patronB. If so our raise
would be only twenty-five cents as
that was the raise on resident phones.
The people of the country should
stand together sad demand justice or
have the phones taken out. No farmer
can afford to pay such a rate for good
service, and almost nothing for such
as we have had. I had the Union
phone before the merger and we got
rood service. It was an exceptional
call that did not get answer to the first
ring. Now if we average one out of
five we are lucky. The way Is open
lor some proposition from the Com-
pany to the rural patrons. If they pro-
pose to stand to the new rate their
phones are ready for thein at any time.

ROTARIANS TO HELP
Helping to make McKinney a better
cotton market Is one of the self-im-
posed tasks of the Itotary Club taken
upon Itself at Friday's noon-day lunch-
eon served this week by the First Bap-
tist church ladies in their accustomed
hospitable and most gracious manner.
J. Perry Burrus, chairman; J. Ed
Rhea, W. R, Abernathy, Mayor H. A.
Finch and E. W. Hollow compose a
committee appointed by President
llountree to co-operate with a like
committee from the Business Men's
Association to work out a detailed pro-
cedure for the city to follow in a uni-
ted effort to get the best results. Ac-
tion in the matter was proposed to the
Rotary Club by Avery Doweli who Is
both an enthusiastic liotarian and
President of the McKinney Business
McKinney Cotton Classer.
By the initiative of County Farm
Agent O. D. Everett, who was cordial-
ly co-operated with by President Dow-
ell and Secretary C. W. Smith of the
McKinney Business Men's Association,
an official cotton classer has been se-
cured for this county for the approach-
ing cotton season. This cotton classer
will office at McKinney, which city is
centrally located, for the entire coun-
ty, whose salary will be secured by a
nominal charge for each bale of cot-
ton that he classes. About 40 or 50
landholders and farmers have guaran-
teed his salary and expense amount-
ing to about *3,500. The McKinney
banks have in turn underwritten these
guarantors to the government under
whose supervision the classer is ap-
pointed and operates.
Benefits From a Classer.
A competent classer will officially
classify and grade each bale of the
farmer's crop so that both the produc-
er and the buyer may know exactly
what grade the cotton is that is pro-
duced and offered for sale. Both the
farmer and the buyer can act intelli-
gently when each knows the grade and
class of the particular bale of cotton
offered on the market. Another ad-
vantage is that farmers will he Induc-
ed to raise a better staple of cotton
and to pick it more carefully and take
better care of it after It Is baled, not
letting it lie out In the open weather
perhaps for weeks before selling it.
If farmers wish to hold their cotton
they ^111 have greater inducement to
shelter it and give it protection from
Prizes For .Farmers.
According to thlB Rotary proposal,
liberal prizes will probably be offered
by McKinney citizens to the farmers
who sell the best and cleanest staple
and class of (*otton in this market
during the season. Details as to cash
i rlzes and amounts will be forthcom-
ing soon from this Joint Rotary and
Business Men's Association of five
members from each organization. The
co-operative move is a commendatory
one on the part of the Rotary Club
and is In strict accord and In harmony
with its motto of "service" to its
town, county, and Joint citizenship.

County Farm Agent G. D. Everett
