to 4 THE PRIVATE DETECTIVES THEIR NAME IS LEGION AND THEY WATCH ALL CLASSES OF BUSINESS EMPLOYEES Some Clever Schemes for Swindling firms and CorporationsSharps- Who Make a Regular Business of Getting Damages In no other country in the world are so many private detectives employed as in the United States Every great corporation has its staff of secret service men many of them recruited from the detective forces of European countries The chief occupation of these com mercial detectives is to protect the various institutions they represent from the depredations of professional swindlers of all kinds These crooks are a formidable army Groups of them travel from city to city concocting and carrying out frauds of all kinds aided in their ne farious plans by shady lawyers phy sicians and even at times by tno employs of the corporations which they seek to victimize Insurance companies are the favorite prey of this robber bands Of one audacious swindler who was recently brought to justice it is stated that assisted by his confederates he defrauded seven different accident In surance companies of sums aggregating some 13000 Had he varied his method it is quite likely this particular crook would still be reaping a golden harvest But he repeated his device too often His trick consisted in slipping on a piece of soap while taking a bath land sustaining severe internal in juries He always had a doctor of course a confederate to testify to theserious nature of his accident but although the trick in itself was diffi cult of detection a constant repetition of it naturally awakened suspicion and led to the downfall of the swindler Some of the sharps pose as mechan ics and prey upon employers of labor their method being to pretend to sus tain some injury in the course of their work Aided by shyster doctors and lawyers they bring actions for dam ages Sometimes by taking out acci dent insurance policies they contrive to gain a double share of plunder Railway companies are victimized in much the same fashionthat is to say by bogus claims for injuries and accidents In these cases the frauds are generally more elaborate involving not only the services of dishonest doctors and lawyers but the testimony of witnesses paid to perjure them selvesOf one group of railway sharpers the ringleaders of which were brought to justice it came out in the evidence that they made more than 5000 a year by their practices- A real railway accident especially one of any magnitude is a perfect wind fall to some of these rogues if they are anywhere in the vicinity Taking advantage of the confusion SENATOR OHro Mrs Magdalene Dick is one of the few mothers in Washington who can visit the United States Senate chamber and look down upon a son who Is a member of the most powerful legislative body on earth That son is the Hon Charles William Frederick Dick senator from Ohio who succeed ed the lamented Mark Hanna There is especial swelling of pride in the breast of Mrs Dick as she looks down from the Senate Gallery upon her boy for the reason that she knows better than any one else how many were the struggles and how rough the paths that led to his present honor Both of Senator Dick were born in Germany but they met and married here settling in Akron Ohio where the father was an humble arti san He was careful and frugal after the German fashion but was not very successful in business The little fam ily knew what it was to work hard for the necessities of life The future senator knew what it was too to be born of the traditional poor but honest parents His schooling was limited for he had to begin work when able 4o earn even a little bit First he was a messenger boy In a bank then clerk in a hat store and and excitement they make their ap pearance among the injured Their injuries are generally of course of an internal nature and uttering heartrending groans they are carried oft to be attended if possible by some medical accomplice Now and again the conductors of trains are in league with the sharpers which of course greatly facilitates the frauds Indeed it is said that railway accidents such as small collisions have been deliberately brought about by conspiracies of this kind One particular crook made large sums by conspiring with conductors to push him oft the train when it was in motion In this way he acquired a profitable crop of permanent injuries to the spine for which the railway companies had to pay smartly So numerous and so astute have the American detectives become of late years however that such frauds have become increasingly difficult The suppression of malpractices of this kind is as stated the principal work of the great army of commercial detectives many of whom are apparently ordinary citizens or even work ersknown as plain clothes men Among their minor functions Is the watching of suspected employs especially those of banks and great financial houses Any tendency to extravagant habits or irregular living on the part of em ployes 13 noted and reported upon by these unsuspected watchers Others there are wno in the guise of clerks and laborers secretly note any ten dencies to disloyalty or discontent In this way approaching strikes are detected and oftentimes nipped in the bud Studied by the Artist One of the greatest difficulties In art remarked a critio U is to get ones facts right and for this you have to go not to art but to the people who understand the things represented- I received my first lesson in this direction when as a youth I painted a coast scene with a ship in the foreground It was highly praised by all who saw it with the of an old seaman who when he examined the rigging politely turned aside to conceal his amusement No ship he explained could possibly have gone to sea with the ropes and tackle arranged as in my picture So I had to humble myself to learn to draw reeving blocks shrouds yards and other por tions of a ships rigging as they really are But it Is not always possible to be true to fact Take for instance a typical picture which represents a herd of selfdeny ing cattle grazing in a meadow where the herbage is of the scantiest while near at hand are unprotected fields of grain into which they could walk at will Why did not the painter include In his picture the fences which ac tually surrounded the corn fields Simply because they would have spoilt the composition and consequently reality had to be sacrificed to the demands of art MOTHER OF DICK OF parents he was very proud when he acquired a half interest In a feed and machinery establishment All this time however he kept studying at night to gain an education and to achieve something better than an anxious interest in the market price of oats The good mother who looks down upon him in the Senate can recall with much pride the struggles of the son to better his place in the world and she did her part to help him He went into politics and was elected county auditor before he was 30 This is always the best office in any courthouse and gave the young man a start not only In politics but in business His activity and shrewd ness in local elections led to his selection in 1892 as chairman of the state executive committee He won the election by such a small majority that there was no glory in it but the following year he managed the second election of McKinley as Governor with splendid results Later he went to Congress from the old Garfield dis trict and when Hanna died came to the senate by unanimous vote Mrs Dick is of fine appearance not yet 70 and remains calmly complacent over the romantic career of her son who may yet achieve still higher honors i THE AMATEUR SMUGGLERS MOST TRAVELERS FEEL JUSTIFIED IX OUTWITTING AND BEATING GOVERNMENT Foreign Dealers

PRESENTED TO CONGRESS BY WHICH MANY DEFICITS COULD BE AVOIDED During the Past Five Years the Government Has Lost Over a Hun dred Million Worth of TimberThe and then there is a sharp passage at arms in Congress between the East and the West In fact some of the rather prominent men of Con gress still seem to think that the West is a separate country and not in reality a part of the United States and entitled to the same consideration that it shown the Mississippi Valley The Atlantic Coast or the New England States An instance of this kind oc cured the other day when Senator Tel ler of Colorado was addressing the Senate He resented the intimations that the funds used in connection with vTHE the the irrigation reclamation service had been given as a bounty to the West In the first place since the money is all paid back to the government he stated that it was simply in the nature of a Lucky Baldwinfs Irrigated Rand Twenty Years Ago a Desert loan and further he contended that the irrigation law was of as much Import ance to the east as to the west that it was national in character and that it wotiV benefit not only the section where It was applied bat reflexly every other section In fact the west was somewhat tired of this ideawhich seemed to obtain among some eastern statesmen of being considered as an outside dependency of the nation That the commercial interests of tIle east if not its statesmen are alive to the desirability of promoting the settle ment and internal improvement of tho west is shown by the very comprehen sive action taken recently by the National Board of Trade in Washirgtp a powerful association composed oC representatives from most of the great commercial bodies of the United States The organization represents a combined capital of billions of dollars employing several hundred thousand workers it has been a strong factor In urging legislation on various important in ternal works it was the first of the great commercial bodies of the East to advocate the passage of the national irrigation law and it has a regular standing committee on forestry and irrigationThe of the oganization this year is most interesting and reads as follows It is gratifying to note that much of the legislation rn Forestry and Irrigation matters which has been con sistently urged by the National Board of Trade has been enacted into law The National Board was the first organization representing the commercial interest of the whole country to recommend a national irrigation policy and June 17 1902 a National Irri gation law was enacted There is in the Irrigation Fund at the present time about 30000000 which is in creasing from the sale of public lands at the rate of at least 3000000 a yearIn thy matter of Forestry legislation the National Board of Trade recom mended the passage of the bill providing for the consolidation of the various forestry branches of the Government into the Bureau of Fores try of the Department of Agriculture This bill was enacted Into law at the last session of Congress The National Board of Trade has stood against the practice of exchang ingworthless U scrip land in the national forest reserves for valuable public lands outside of the reserves and has repeatedly recommended the repeal of the law permitting this prac tice This law was repealed at the last session of Congress At the last meeting of the National Board opposition was expressed to what was known as the 640 Acre Home stead bills increasing the homestead entry in parts of South Dakota Colorado and in Montana from 160 acres to 640 acres these bills were all defeated at the last session of Congress Much however remains to be done The National Board of Trade has con sistently advocated the saving of the great public domain for the use of the real homemaker as against the land and timber grabber and the speculator Trade and commerce will increase as population increases and our National land policy should be administered to preserve our remaining half billion acres of public lands for those who will build homes upon them As laws which tend to overcome this policy the Na tional Board has continuously since its meeting in January 1902 urged the repeal of the Timber and Stone Act the commutation clause of the Homestead Act and the Desert Land Act in accordance with the recommendations of the President In his annualMes sages to

advantage whereas the menace to her water sup ply from forest destruction is equally as great Large areas in the Southern Appalachian and White Mountain Ranges should be created into forest reservesFor Eastern forest Reserves In a speech at Raleigh N C on October 20th last President Roosevelt said It is the upper altitudes of the wrested mountains that are most valu able to the nation as a whole especially because of their effects upon the water supply Neither state or nation can af ford to turn these mountains over to the unrestrained greed of those who worJd exploit them at the expense of the future We cannot afford to wait longer before assuming control in the interests of the public of these forests for if we do wait the vested interests of private parties in them may become so strongly inirenched that it may be a most expensive task to oust them If the eastern states are wise then from the Bay of Fundy to the Gulf we will see within the next few years a policy set on foot similar to that so fortunately carred out in the high Sierras of the west by tho Na lanaI government All the higher Appalachians should be reserved Such reserves would be a paying investment not only in protection to many inter ests but in dollars and cents to the government The importance to the southern people of protecting the south ern mountain forests is obvious These forests are the

In the earlymorning the crowds which spent most of the night at the bulletinboard were gathering again At no time had the place been entirely deserted Several men had never been out of eyeshot of the bulletins One of them a shockheaded youth in overalls and wearing the cap of a government electrician sat on the stone curbing by the entrance to the power station smoking a small black pipe seemingly more occupied with meditation than observation Most of the men who were now gathering about the board were coal miners on their way to the shafts Here and there were electricians The vastness of the power station from which they had come was no more than suggested from where the crowd stood the build ings being partially hid in a grove of treesThe groups of miners and electricians were almost silent They seemed to have exhausted comment and surmise and to be waiting for the tangible to take place of conjecture On the Verge of War In Washington the federal news editor apparently had worn out himself and his staff in keeping up a detailed account of the allnight session of Con gress As daylight came the service wabbled and what had been a con nected wellsustained story of congressional proceedings had slumped to a series of jerky bulletins of which the last had come a halfhour before read ing Williams still has the floor He Is majorityTo the men starting for the shafts this carried no news which they had no known before they had gone away a few hours earlier to get such sleep and rest as they could While they stood watching another bulletin came- Congress has taken an hours recess for breakfast No action The coal miners in the crowd read this and then started for work Soon there were left only a few scattered groups but the shockheaded electrician still sat on the curb and smoked his black pipe Mail by Airship A speck developed in the eastern sky and drew nearer enlarging rapidly Then the Washington mail came into sight and landed at the areoplane sta tion near the entrance to the power station A mail clerk came down the elevator after the sacks had been thrown into the chute He was questioned eagerly by the men still standing about the bulletin board but had nothing of news later than that which the bulletins had given them As he stood talking another message was flashed on the board Williams says that opposition to the majority will cease War will be declared before night At that the shockheaded youth arose suddenly from the curbstone walked rapidly through the gates and on into the grounds of the power station Vast Central Power Station The Susquehanna Coal and Power District supplying not only Washing ton but New York with electricity for all purposes of light heat and power was the largest of the government power areas into which the country was divided Its coal mines were of the greatest extent its power station gigantic and Its employees an army New York with its millions and Wash ington with its institutions secured all power from the wires charged by the dynamos of the Susquehanna District The shockheaded electrician kept his rapid stride through the grounds until he came to a onestory brick building marked over Its doorway with the word Administration It was surrounded by beds of sweetpeas wnich a gardner then was watering The young man went up the graveled walk without looking to right or left pushed open the door went the length of the Inner hall turned to the right and knocked at a closed door He was told to enter and did so taking off his cap A middleaged grayhaired spectacled man sat at a desk in the center 1of the room He did not look up unti the young electrician was standing be side his desk Then he glanced at lila sidewise inquiringly Young Inventor Busy Mr Shod said the younger man I wanta two weeks leave of absence The elder then looked squarely ai him but did not reply merely brushing back his hair In an abstracted pre occupied manner The young man repeatinghisGo back to work said Shod finally seeming to dismiss the request as preposterous He had started to speak calmly but his manner changed and he brought his fist down on the desk as he added sharply Atsins you make me think your crazy Havent you read the bulletins Look herea message from the chief We expect you to run double capacity from the instant war is declared Leave of absence Man go back to work J Atsins became confused and awkwardly abashed but he persisted nevertheless urging great necessity- If you even ask again cried Shod becoming thoroughly angry Ill have you locked up for attempting desertion Daring Plan Explained He wheeled around in his chair and busied himself with the wires leading off the keyboard on his desk Atsins hesitated an instant and then suddenly lost his awkwardness and became alert He bent over his senior speaking rapid ly energetically and sharply He drew from the inner pocket of his blouse a print spreading it before Shod The anger of the older man gave way to astonishment He was held spell bound by the youngers vehement explanation until finally Atsins ceased talking folded up his print returned it to his pocket and stood waiting Shod contemplated him silently for several moments Then he said You have a chance It Is too great a chance to lose It might be our sal vation Ill inform the chief He reached over toward the keyboard but Atsins put out a restraining hand and held him shaking his head in vigorous protest Well I guess you are right there too the older man said do as you think best Catches Airship for Capital Atsins turned away instantly and again with rapid stride went through the grounds On lookirg at his watch he broke into a run heading for the aeroplane station By quick sprinting ho reached the lift just as it was mak ing its last trip up to connect with the fast Washington mail ship It touched as he came out on the platform and he was aboard just in time II In the early history of the nation there had been a much applauded maxim In time of peace prepare for war The people had never deviated from their policy of applauding and ignoring this wisdom of one of their earliest statesmen The nation had never lost its complacencyhad never succeeded in disillusioning itself It Imagined Itself peaceful but in reality injuryfanciedlar demand for war and least prepared to carry it on- Nation in a Trance With the selfdeceiving theory that theyhadthe xiief that war for them was next to impossible Their history a record of conflicts made costly because undertaken without preparation did not serve to destroy this illusion it was a tart of the national life Now popular outcry was forcing an other war At any moment Congress which had been In the throes of debate for three days might open hostilities with a declaration mlUtarymenpIe were holding themselves In restraint confident In their abIlity found ed on thorough preparation The na tion In general knew this but allowed itself no thought of the inevitable product of Incompetence urged into action by rashness- In all this unprepared country no one appreciated so thoroughly the Impending danger as did Montrus the un ortunate commanderinchief of the small military forces Commander in Despair He had been dean of tho Department of electricity in the national univerI sity when transferred to the military service having prior to this been an- a instructor in one of the national mili tary schools In appearance he was scholastic his figure spare and bent his hair and eyes gray and his face hinjowled He was alone in his office looking out of the window across the Potomac the only inactive figure in the War Departmentwhen one of his aides en tered the room Curtis had been located said the aide He is at Kiel We got his sig nal followed by some code which is being transcribed Another aide came in Curtis says he is effectually hidden and can send electrigraphs if we can aka them Where is he asked Montrus eager ly Scouting the Upper Air He says he is out of the path of their scouts and thinks he is safely posted He must be above them Can you reach him 1 We have but he warns us not to try often I suppose his position Is precarious at best Tell him to send what ho can an swered Montrus Ill go into the tower to take it A hundred yards farther us the Po tomac stood a gigantic tower the exact longitude and latitude of which was burned in the memory of every opera tive in the secret service To this Montus and his aides hastened being carried directly to the summit by a lift While tho aides adjusted the films and reflector of the electrophotogra pher Montrus stood at the railing look ing out over the peaceful river scene and drumming his fingers on the wood en barsI it Is coming said one of of the aides finally and the general stepped over to adjust about his head the hood which shut all light from the eyes looking at the reflector Looking Across theOcean At first this remained in black and Inky darkness Then came little waves of dim light which rippled across its surface These ripples became stronger indistinct shapes unrecognizable and mystic seemed to rise out of its depths They cleared away and there grew up in their place the forms of a citys roofs and towers which stood revealed in distinct outlines for a moment and then seemed to drop further and further down into the reflector White fleecy clouds came between the eye and the citys roofs the latter growing less and less distinct There was a sweep of a dark object athwart the clouds It crossed the en tire reflector blotting It out In blackness again but light followed almost instantly Again nothing but the white clouds but finally a faroff flock of specks which came nearer and nearer until they stood out each distinctly and separately clearcut in outline and identity There they stood Aerial Torpedo Boats Montrus almost held his breath as he ran his eyes over them For ten minutes he studied Then he drew the hood from his head and looked out over the river scene again A hundred I should say he remarked at last quietly but in great bitterness Every one ready In twentyfour hours from the time those awful fools in Congress declare war those hundred torpedo ships will be here Tell Curtis weve seen enough With that he went back to his office and in moodiness took his post by the window again Nothing he could plan could avert the calamity he had seen in readiness Presently one of the aides came in again A government electrician is out side he announced and insists on seeing you We have done everything to get rid of him but throw him off the groundsThe stopped and waited expect antI1TeIlhim said Montrus angrily but stopped Let him in he concluded sullenly Young Inventor to the Rescue The aide went out and came back with the shockheaded electrician who had spent the night before by the bulle tinboard His embarrassment was great but his earnestness equalled it The former showed in his awkward posture and twitching fingers the lat ter in the direct look with which he sought the generals eyes Well exclaimed Montrus sharply- I have a concentratorI want you to look at ItI thought he began excitedly but ended brokenly in the face of a cold stare from Montrus Here it is he concluded unfolding the prints Montrus cast one careless and a second interested glance at the plans He drew up a chair and studied them the moodiness giving away to keen appreciation Then lie pushed them awayYou seem to have something he saiduSome other tfme if theres anything left of this country some other time Ill look at them But not now I cant now Death to Distant Fleet But you dont understand ex claimed Atsins quickly and vehemently Nows the time dont you see That will direct a million voltstwo million voltsaccurately to any distance at any object Man if it works If It will do Itdont you see Montrus stared at the shockheaded boy in a daze Atsins held himself in check and leaned forward- Will the ships at Kiel ever leave their moorings If It works he asked drawing in his breath sharply The two men looked at each other and as Montrus stared he saw also in his mental vision those hundred dark Shanes on the face of the reflectorIThen he pressed a series of buttons on his desk and men entered from different doors Take this young man Mr Not a name said Atsins Just an this Jdea continued Montra speaking rapidly to Sending Station 10 the largest Let him direct any changes he desires Tell Susquehanna to give us ten times the usual power from now until notified otherwise The men started to obey and Atsins to follow his guides when Montrus stepped to him holding out his hands- I hope you succeed he II cant fail saidIyoung man To Be continued ACTIVE NORWEGIAN WOMEN Occupy Good Positions as Stewards on Coasting Steamers Bright

DIAMOND CUTTERS WATCHMAKERSJEWELERSDepartment CHICAGO ILLINOIS US A WETHER BUREAU lOREI The Government Macaroni WheatI PropagandaIGUY ELLIOTT MITCHELL Itsforecastsjokes and duns at the hands of the newspapers yet seriously the Weather Bureau reCOrds are now having in creased use as evidence in the courts of the country During the past ten years observers of the Weather Bureau have appeared with records in court nearly three thousand times Evidence as to the weather isa great factor in a variety of cases both civil and criminal Civil eases are largely personal injury dam freezingOrcases are usually confined to murder trials In most cases claims for dam ages are almost always settled outside of court Information as to the existing weather conditions having been secured by both sides As a usual thing when an MHcial of theWeather Bureau appears in court with records to give testimony he does not know the character of the suit arrangedbyStand immediately upon his arrival in court and he is excused after his testimony has been given An observer of the Weather Bureau was once called in a case in which the plaintiff had stated that while she was attemptedtothe raw cold weather As the car reached a curve she was suddenly thrown headlong into the street The railway introduced the weather record to show that on the date of the alleged accident the weather was warm and sunny and there was no occasion for shutting a window The wind records of the Weather Bureau are valuable during trials involving damage by wind such as blowing down of build ings super structures and flag staffs the wrecking of vessels on the lakes and ocean etc and seldom is a suit for damage caused by high wind brought in any of the large cities that the Weather records are not called into court Evidence is sometimes desired in a lease of damage by lightning Several years ago a building in Illinois col lapsed during a severe thunderstorm It was insured by loss against lightning and not against loss by wind The owner claimed full insurance on the ground that the destruction of the house was caused by a bolt of light ning The matter was placed in the lands of the adjuster who in turn tailed to his assistance a scientist then tin charge of one of the principal weather bureau offices to whom by mutual consent the decision was left No Mud on His Boots The subject of rainfall was important in a peculiar way in i trial in Con necticut some years ago A burglary had been attempted one night in a prominent residence and the occupants believed that they recognized as the intruder their own coachman who lived near by in a stable A thunder storm with heavy rain prevailed at that time and shortly afterwards the officers who had been summoned put the coach man under arrest He denied the charge and called attention to the fact that his shoes were not wet and muddy During the trial the Weather records were produced showing heavy rain at the time and the jury concluded that it was case of mistaken identity and jthe man was discharged Saved His Life Weather Bureau records have gured In some of the most notable murder trials In one instance an observer was Called by the defense to show that the night the victim disappeared was dark and threatening This evidence con tradicted that given a witness for the prosecution who had testified that although distant several hundred feet te saw the accused take the victim into ra factoryIThe relations between the WeatJier Bureau Station on the Crest of the Blue Ridge and the Weather Bureau are mutually agreeable The value of the Weather Bureau records is appreciated and the thorough cooperation of its officials is acknowledged With the increase in the number of observing stations and more comprehensive and complete meteorological data athand theweather service will naturally be a still more important factor in the adjustment of claims and the trial of suits in which the question of weather in any of its phases may enter- Macaroni Wheat Introduction Mention has been recently made of the great value to the American farmer of the importation of a new variety of wheat known as Durum or macaroni wheat As has been stated this grain has been Instrumental in bringing into production land which heretofore u not been considered valuable for wheat raisingThe introduction of macaroni wheat into the United States came about through the pilgrimage to Europe and Asiatic Russia in 1899 of Mark A Carleton of the Department of Agri culture then the assistant in charge of cereal investigation He was sent there by the Secretary of Agriculture in order to gain all possible information in regard to macaroni wheat and to select such varieties as would probably succeed in the great grain regions and especially in semi arid portions where the ordinary bread wheats were sometimes at best but an indifferent crop Mr Carleton made a thorough explpra CROP OF MACARONI WHEAT RAISED AT tion and secured a large number of varieties In the Russian provinces north of the sea of Azov already the home of the best of macaroni wheats he found the climatic conditions ap proximately the same as those of ouf Great Plains He secured a number of bushels of the best varieties of wheat grown there and these wheats the Department of Agriculture distributed to growers in suitable localities thereby increasing the stock The crop secured together with two fresh importations was distributed in 1901 to the farmers of the northwest through the experi ment stations of the various states Great Crop for Northwest Since the Department of Agriculture undertook the work the production of macaroni wheat in the northwest has increased with astonishing rapidity Perhaps no other new crop has been so warmly welcomed by the farmers in the regions suitable to its growth It has been found splendidly adaptable to the climatic and soil conditions of the Great Plains region It thrives in abundant sunshine does not require a large amount of moisture resists vigorously all the smuts and rusts and is a strong grower yielding far in ex cess os the ordinary bread wheat A peculiar property of macaroni wheat which makes it valuable for its distinct uses is its protein or gluten contentIn general way the methods to be employed in the cultivation of maca roni wheats are similar to those required for the best results with any other wheats The first and most obvious use of the macaroni wheat is the manufacture of macaroni vermicelli and other forms of edible pastes At the present time this country is importing these products largely the importations amounting to nearly 30000000 pounds annually with a value of 1250000 In 1900 there was not a single factory in the United States manufacturing ma caroni from macaroni wheat All thatc The United States Bureau at- Waslttngton was made in this country was of an inferior quality and was sold as such on the market being produced from the bread wheats Now there are 20 or more factories using American macaroni wheat and proudly brahding their products Made in America from American Grown Wheats Macaroni flour is also used for the purpose of blending It Is mixed with a low grade of bread wheat flour making a most valuable article for bread making and pastry cooking Macaroni flour is also used for ordinary bread making Tests made by the Department of Agricul tore and by private families have do- monstrated that bread made from macaroni flour is very palatable and nutritious many people preferring it to ordinary wheat bread The use trf the Sour extends also to many other articles of common diet such as rolls breadsticks griddle cakes etc and fficials of the Department of Agricul ture think there is no reason why a breakfast food far excelling a majority of those in common use at the present time both as to palatability and nu tritiveness cannot be prepared from it As a stock food macaroni wheat and its products have been found by actual experiments to equal if not surpass bread wheat Owing to the fact that it is a surer crop than the latter with a heavier yield farmers will learn to turn to this abundant source of protein in using balanced rations Rapid Increase in Production The progress of the macaroni wheat industry in this country may be under stood when it is known that the first crop of any considerable amount was in 1901 when it was estimated that from 60000 to 70000 bushels were har vested In 1902 the yield was between 1500000 bushels and 2000000 bushels In 1903 nearly 12000000 bushels were obtained while in 1904 the yield amounted to nearly 20000000 bushels While the possibilities of the crop of S ITHE NEW MEXICO EXPERIMENT STATION 1905 cannot be accurately determined at this time estimates run from 25000 000 to 30000000 bushelsthis is a comparatively new crop in the United States Instead of importing macaroni wheat for the purpose of manufac turing domestic macaroni the United States is now exporting annually about 2000000 bushels to France and Italy and other European countries for it has been found by the manufacturers there that the American grown wheat makes a most excellent product Sec retary Wilson stated that the value of the macaroni wheat industry in this MACARONI WHEAT SEED ROUTE TO S EAP ountry now reaches more than 7000 annuallyWith splendid possibilities- in its favor officials of the Department of Agriculture believe that macaroni wheat has a great future Bread and pastry made from it will find a wel ome addition to the tables of the American people while the introduc lion of the wheat into the Great Plains region has proved an inestimable boon lo the farmers of the semiarid belt xtending from North Dakota to Texas While it may take some time to edu ate both producers and consumers to its excellence and value it is believed that macaroni wheat and its products will give it high rank among standard farm crops The Vegetable Vender- If a man who turnips cries Cry not when his father dies Tis a proof that he would rather Save a turnip than a father There were 593000 cattle exported from the United States in 1904 They were distributed as follows United Kingdom 387000 Cuba 135000 Canada 38000 Belgium 18000 and other countries 15000 The people of the United Kingdom eat annually about 200000000 pounds of American ham King Victor Emanuel of Italy is said to be the best shot among the royalty of Europe The first shipment of frozen meat was made from Australia was a lot of 400 sheep sent from Melbourne in 1880 The trade did not gain much importance till 1890 In that year one hundred million pounds of frozen beef and veal and 66000000 pounds of frozen mutton and lamb were exported The British Columbia Fish and Game club has arranged for the im portation of a large number of English pheasants to be distributed in western for fat women are now being made to lace up on the Inside ankle instead of up the instep No one can tell why the blossoms of fruit trees are limited in color to white pink scarlet and purple There are no viole or yellow fruit bloffomg Keeping Records on the rteThe Bureau of Animal Industry has published a very valuable book giving Records of Dairy Cows in the United States This publication contains valuable information and excellent halftone illustrations of record cows of the country It urges dairymen to adopt better business methods on the farma complete system of bookkeeping whereby definite knowledge of the sources of profit and loss may be ascer tained In no department connected with the farm is there more need for absolute data than in the dairy While village merchants and grocers for example average about alike in their knowledge of their businesses their prices and profits being nearly equal the records show that there are progressive and unprogressive dairymen one making a good profit while his next door neighbor with the same soil and market may be losing money The difference in their profits therefore must be accounted for largely by the difference in the intelligence put into their business Experts of the Depart ment of Agriculture believe that one fourth of the cows In the entire coun try kept for milk do not pay for the cost of keeping and nearly onefourth more fail to yield an annual profit The object of the book issued by the Bureau is to show dairymen the importance of keeping records complete enough so that it will be possible to avoid the handling of unprofitable animals and to bring the dairy industry of the coun try up to a paying basis Trials of a Turkey Raiser Members of the House of Representatives are having quite a lot of fun at the expense of Representative Charles D Landis of Indiana who has been making some experiments in turkey raisingRepresentative Landis bought a few pairs of bronze turkeys paying a big price for them spent a lot of money in a turkey house with all the comforts of turKey home heated rooms for the expected chicks etc and laid in a stock of literature on how to get rich on tur key raising At the outset one of the finest hens became disatisfied with the luxuries of home and finding the trammels of the modern method distasteful made off
