The Virginia Agricultural and Mechanical College offers for the first time a free winter course for the farmers themselves. There are no conditions of age or education, young men and old are both wanted. There will be practical courses in Agriculture, Horticulture, Animal Husbandry and Dairying. This winter course lasts three weeks and is mainly demonstration—just what the practical farmer needs. Write to Dr. P.B. Barringer, Blacksburg, Virginia, for an announcement.

Night telephone service will be established in the very near future, it is stated.
