NO. 20 MINNESOTA SOIL GOOD FOR TOBACCO Wisconsin Buyers Pick Up All Of Sherburne's Crops at Good Figures St.ClOud Minn., Des. 6— The adap tability of central Minnesota soil to tobacco is shown by a large display of the weed in the specimen cases of the Farmers' State Bank. The tobacco was raised on the reformatory farm and on the farm of residents of Clear Lake and Palmer, in Sherburne county. Charles Lien has been sent to Sherburne county to conduct an experimental farm for the state to determine what varieties of tobacco thrive best in the soil of this vicinity. The samples on display are Connecticut, Havana and Spanish Comstock. Those who have raised tobacco in Sherburne county have found it profitable. The sales average $100 an acre. Its cultivation is not difficult, and it demands but little more care than cabbage. Representatives of Wisconsin tobacco houses have purchased the entire crop hereabout at liberal figures. The quality of the Sherburne county tobacco Is said to rival that of the famed Connecticut wrapper leaves. FORTY NEW TYPEWRITERS IN- Dir DAI II TDV <J I H LI. Ll/ Transcript; The Little Falls Business College has just received the last ofthe forty new typewriters purchased this fall. Of the machines purchased 25 of them are No. 10 Remington and fifteen are No. 2 L. C. Smiths; all visible of the latest make and model. The College now owns over seventy-five machines. About half of them are used in the school and the others are rented to students who take them to their rooms. Mr. Millard says this home practice is one of the secrets of the success of Little Falls Business Collgee graduates. The 35 new commercial desks and chairs have been received and put in place; making a total of 125 desks and chairs of the same pattern. It was necessary a few weeks ago to advertise for no more students to come in until after Thanksgiving, as every desk was occupied. Indications now point to every one of the new seats being occupied inside of sixty days.
