On motion of Arthur Elliot of Peabody to choose a 
committee to revise the premium list and report to the 
trustees at their meeting in N^ovember it was 

Voted — To refer the whole matter to the Executive 
Committee, 

The committee appointed at a special meeting of the 
Society, June 4, 1907 to report at the annual meeting of 
the Society to ascertain as near as may be the valuation of 
the Society's grounds and buildings in Peabody, reported 
through its chairman Mr. Nelson of Georgetown as 

follows. 

That it appears that the grounds contain about thirteen 
acres of land, capable of being divided into 100 building 
lots worth $200.00 per lot, as land has been sold nearby. 
A second estimate is that the land is worth from five to 
ten cents per foot, lots 50 by 100 feet would be worth 
from $250.00 to $500.00 per lot. The property is on the 
town books at $10,000.00 but we are informed that the 
assessors are of the opinion that the actual value is much 
more than that, from $15,000.00 to $17,000.00, as no tax 
is assessed the valuation remains the same as years ago. 
We are of the opinion these figures represent a fair and 
conservative estimate. 

Voted to adjourn. 

John M. Danfoeth, Secretary.

1907, and tabulated for comparison as follows: —

54 
INSTITUTES. 

The Society has held four Institutes the past year, on 
as many different days, both forenoon and afternoon at 
which the following subjects were discussed by any of the 
audience who desired. 

The first Institute for 1907 was held at Grange Hall, 
Andover, Friday, Feb. 1. Subject, forenoon, "Dairy 
Farming as a Business," "Inspection of Barns," afternoon 
"Four Months Experience Milking by Steam," by War- 
ren C. Jewett of Worcester. 

The second Institute was held at Grange Hall, Haver- 
hill, Friday, Feb. 15. Subject for the forenoon, "Farm 
Buildings" by P. M. Harwood, General Agent of the 
Dairy Bureau ; afternoon, "A Healthy good-natured wife, 
a Farmer's best investment," by Mrs. S. Ella Southland. 

The Third Institute was held at the Town Hall, Dan- 
vers, Friday, March 1. Subject for the forenoon, "Mar- 
ket Gardening," by Henry M. Howard, of West ]!^ewton; 
afternoon, "Profitable Poultry Keeping," "Eggs and 
Poultry for Market," by A. F. Hunter, Associate Editor 
of American Poultry Advocate. 

A field Institute was held at the Danvers Asylum, Fri- 
day, April 26. The principal speakers were P. M. Har- 
wood on Judging a good Dairy Cow, Dr. Francis W. Page 
on Pure Milk, and Tuberculosis Cows, and Dr. Xewcomb 
on Bovo-Vacine. 



To THE Massachusetts State Board of Agricultuke: 

Having been requested to take the place of Mr. N. Sa- 
gendorph, the assigned delegate to the Essex AgTieultural 
Society at Peabody, I visited the exhibition on the 17th of 
September, which was the opening day, and therefore a 
little early for all arrangements to be in perfect order. 



55 

An innovation was made this year, by holding the en- 
tire exhibit on the grounds of the society ; a part being for- 
merly held in the Town Hall, and the change Avas an im- 
provement, giving a more satisfactory display. The 
grounds are comparatively level, easily reached, and well 
suited to the purpose. A portion of the show had to be- 
held in tents, as there was not sufficient room in the per- 
manent buildings, these are aparently economically built 
and in good order. There was a large number of miscel- 
laneous occupants of the grounds, but I saw no gambling. 

There were on exhibition 60 cows, heifers and bulls, 
of pure breeds and grades, and herds of milch cows ; also 
one pair of steers. In the horse department the entries 
were 30 in number. In swine there were 23 entries, with 
125 pigs and hogs. There were 8 or 10 sheep and a few 
Angora goats. In the poultry department there were 250 
or 300 hens, cocks, chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, and a 
large lot of pigeons, the latter entered by boys. The Mas- 
sachusettts Fish and Game Society had a fine exhibit of 
clams, in various stages of growth, Avhich was quite inter- 
esting. 

In vegetables and fruits good displays were made, 
considering the dry season. In fruits, apples, pears, 
grapes and plums were shoAvn. There were 20 entries for 
children's work, also art work, carpets, rugs, etc., as well 
as bread and cake. 

A large tent occupied by the wares of Salem mer- 
chants was an agreeable feature. 

The attendance was large, and very wisely the school 
children were admitted free in the afternoon of the first 
day. 

Respectfully submitted,

EEPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON GRASS AND 
GRAIN CROPS. 

There was but one entry submitted to this committee, 
a crop of English hay entered by George L. Gleason and 
Son of Topsfield. 

The Committee viewed the grass just before it was 
cut and found a heavy crop on all the pieces. Mr. Glea- 
son has been very successful in growing good crops of grass 
by his method of fertilization without the use of stable 
manure. 

The Committee recommends that George L. Gleason 
and Son be awarded the first premium of seven ($7.00) 
dollars. 

Charles H. Preston, Frederick A. Russell, Charles J. 
Peabody, Committee. 

Statement of Geokge L. Gleason and Son. 

Topsfield, Oct. 28, 1907. 
Mr. Charles H. Preston, Hathorne, Mass. 
Dear Sir: 

Lot No. 1 was grown on a field formerly in pasture. 
It was first plowed about twenty years ago. No stable 
manure was ever applied, was for several years dressed with 
wood ashes, unleached, and a small quantity of Ames' fer- 
tilizer. Two years ago it was plowed and reseeded, 500 lbs. 
of ferti'lizer was applied similar to that manufactured by 
Hogers and Hubbard, Middletown, Conn. No clover seed 
was ever sown. In the spring of 19()6, 400 lbs. of fertili- 
zer similar to the last and Top Dressing of Rogers and 
Hubbard was applied, also the same amount in the spring 
of 1907 was put on — 200 lbs. was applied Aug. 1. The 
drought prevented our getting large return. The soil is 



57 

sandy loam, part of it with a clay and part a gravel bot- 
tom. 

Lot 'No. 2 was raised on two fields. The first three- 
£fths of an acre was heavily manured by my tenant and 
seeded to grass five years ago. A part of it was a straw- 
berry bed and had no seed applied but still gave us a good 
stand of Timothy. It received the same amount of top 
dressing as lot ISTo. 1 both spring and summer. Part of it 
produced very little second crop for lack of rain. The 
other lot of l^o. 2 consisted of one-half acre and was seeded 
to grass in September of 1906, was used as a garden 
by my tenant and was highly manured. Was treated the 
same as Lot No. 1. The soil was very similar only a part 
of it was next to a river meadow and had plenty of mois- 
ture. Think one-quarter acre of it must have given us 6 
tons the first crop and 2 the second. The second crop of 
Herdsgrass was headed out when cut. This field gave us 
the best returns we have ever had. We are not used to 
reports and you may wish for further information. 

Sincerely yours, 

G. L. Gleasox & Son.

hay was well packed and solid. The second crop on this 
lot weighed 890 lbs. a total yield for the year of 4 tons, 
890 lbs.
