SECRETARY'S REPORT. can be visited and inspected. On September 12th, 1908, we had another meeting and in- vited all the Farmers selected by the appointed Committee to meet with us and every one present pledged himself to work faithfully for the good of the Association. On November the 9th we petitioned the Honorable County Board to grant us the use of the Court Roomn and on Novem- ber the 12th we had a good meeting. Almost every member of the County Board was present beside some outside Farmers and again all promised to use their influence in behalf of our Association. February the 7th, '09, we held again meeting to get ready for our next Convention. Monroe, Wis., was agreed on to be the place for our next Convention. The date shall be March 11th and 12th, 1909, at the Turner Hall. On account of the 10 days free Course at the Agriculture College at Madison and the 3 different Farmers' Institute in our direct neighborhood we could not set an earlier date. It was agreed to have a suitable Watch Fob instead of a Badge for each member; also to engage again Mrs. Wegg's celebrated Badger Girls Orchestra which gave such splendid satisfaction last year, to print Circulars setting forth the reason why we should have the help of every Dairyman and Cheesemaker and to send such Circulars to every Farmer selected by aforesaid Committee for distribution; also to give an Invita- tion to the different Advertisers in the 1909 Program of the Wisconsin Cheesemakers' Association. A Program was lined out and the Secretary was instructed to try and get the different Speakers. In conclusion and in the name of the Association I wish to heartily thank every one who so freely and splendidly assisted us in making this Convention a success. HENRY ELMER, Secretary.
