happened down at the Indiana dairy convention. I was talk- 
ing to a certainryoung man, and I noticed all the while he kept 
using the word "we." "We" are doing so and so, "we"

appointed a member of the committee to pass upon some essays

that was a most excellent idea, offering prizes for essays on farm 
dairying. We had a number of those essays delivered, and the 
coninittee went over them, each by himself, and then we got 
ourselves together and we labored over those essays, and worked 
over them for two hours before we reached a conclusion of where 
the prizes should go, and two members of the committee were 
graduates of their agricultural college, bright young men. Well, 
we finally made up our mind, the committtee reported, and. the 
essays were read and Ihen we learned who were the winners, and 
the winner of the frst prize was this gentleman's partner. I 
want to say, too, that this lady attended the convention with her 
husband and partner, they were pulling together as they should 
be, instead of his coming to the convention and getting all the 
benefit and she staying home and doing all the work.
