dollar arsi taut s ctetarvshtp to United States Senator McCreary to nuke the race for mayor of this good town I was offered the alternative of resigning if I even announc ed fr this office and I did not best itale lo give up the certainly of a Washington soft snap for the un certainty of being nominated far Mayor and of later winning the election This I succeeded in do ing and I now am happier than any Congressman or Senator from Kentucky and I ask only health and halfhearted support of the people and I shall be satisfied In city affairs the dear people are asleep They awaken in time to tear their shirts for some man who wants to go to the Senate or to Congress but in a little matter like city offices they are criminally apathetic Here in our little cities is the one important place to keep wide awake Ve get no better government than we deserve and we get no better than we demand I am going to devote my whole time and talent and sink ambition and per sonal gain to the one end of giving the people here a run for their money aud that done I shall be perhaps happier than I am to day Mayor of the Best Town on Earth TEE London Echo says that news received from Washington in

did Mr Crittenden Ian guish in the shade of Mr Clay and afterward in the shade of his memo ry But he possessed some very atrong and striking qualities and did the state and the country some important service Mr Watterson suggests Henr Clay and John C Breckinridge and there is much to support the selection Geneaal Breckinridge was a man of great force himself and represented morever a family of the highest distinction in the state The Brecklnridges were- among the first corners helped to shape things held the most important offices and stamped their char acter and abilities on the new in stitutins This scion of the stock made rapid progress in public life and after the death of Mr Clay was probably the most influential man in the state He was greatly admired by the young men and led a large number of them into the Confederate army One could wish to see General Breckinridge accompany Mr Clay here for the additional reason that in the hands of e competent sculp tor he shonld make up

VERNON ROCKCASTLE COUNTY KY MARCH 9 1906 Pages 1 to4 RICH WEDDING PRESENTS GIFTS TO PRESIDENTS 1A UGH TER THE MOST MAGNIFICENT EVER PRESENTED Valued at Hundreds of Thousands of DollarsRare Tapestries Silk Jewelry and other Ornaments from Every Country Xo other American girl has received wedding presents so numerous valu able or interesting as those which have been showered upon President Roosevelts oldest daughter Nelly Grant who next to Alice Roosevelt had the most brilliant White House wedding received many costly gifts from all parts of the world but her trophies pale by comparison with those of the first White House brideof the present century For one thing there were only two hundred guests at the marriage of Nelly Grant and Algernon Sartoris whereas nearly one thousand persons were invited to the White House wedding of 1906 and of course the number of presents in the latter case outnumbers those in the former instance in the same proportion Recognized as Great World Power Then too Uncle Sam was not nearly so much of a World Power in the days of President Grant as he has been since the SpanishAmerican War and consequently it is small won der if the various rulers of the world have manifested greater interest in the nuptials of the daughter of the pres ent Chief Magistrate than they did In the similar event a quarter of a cen tury ago- However it should be explained just here that President Roosevelts daughter has received very few presents from foreign governments al most all of the gifts having come from the sovereigns or other rulers as in dividuals That the governments should not send tokens was the express wish of President and Mrs Roosevelt and was clearly indicated to the OF TAPESTRY FROM FRANCE United States Ambassadors and Min isters in the various capitals of the world Two governments those of Cuba and France had already made all arrangements for governmental gifts ere the intimation came from Washington and cf oourse in each case the original plan was carried out but at the other courts of the world the governments took no action but merely left matters in the hands of the rulers who were to be sure at entire liberty to send presents provided they paid for them out of their own pockets IncomParable Gobelin Tapestry Of the thousands of wedding presents valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars which arrived at the White House during the first half of the month of February undoubtedly one of the most attractive was the won derful pieces of Gobelin Tapestry the gift of the Republic of France and which was presented to Miss Roosevelt In person by M Jusserand the French Ambassador to the United States This gift has especial significance from the fact that the factory where It was manufactured was established by Louis XIV and Is under the direct con trol of the government of France Never before have the looms in this French governmental tapestry plant produced a work of art that was not designed as a gift either for royalty or for some distinguished son of France and even such honor has been paid but rarely It was thewish of the French people and officials to present to the White House bride the most exquisite and precious thing that could be selected and quite naturally they selected a special product of their best workshop This Gobelin tapestrythe only one of the kind ever sent to this country has as its design a reproduction of a painting made by Ehrman of Stras burg a famous Alsatian painterI The tapestry is two feet wide and four feet long and the predominating colors are blue green and yellow It was made fully fifty years ago and the subject is allegorical in character representing a woman of the Middle Ages dressed in long flowing robes of blue and yellow and standing before a lectern making illuminations upon a scroll The figure is almost in profile and the dark hair is curled about the head in classic style Around the main picture is a border wider at each end and narrower on the sides in which wreaths leaves and medal lions appear at intervals This tapestry small as it is is said to be worth from 25000 to 50000 Jeweled Necklace from Cuba For the new Republics gift to the daughter of President Roosevelt the Cuban government appropriated the sum of 25000 and the Cuban Minister at Paris was entrusted with the task of purchasing the handsomest jeweled necklace that could be obtain ed with this sum The White House bride by the way has received sever al pearls and diamond necklaces Most of them have come however from relatives of the bride and wealthy New York friends The German Emperor did not take the world into his confidence with reference to the present sent to th young lady who christened his yacht but it proved to be a jewelel bracelet for which the Emperor and Empress personally selected and matched tEe PIECE GOBELIN gems The Kaisers envoy in America and his bride scuta set of dessert plates of Dresden China The Represent atives fellow Congressmen from Ohio gave a silver loving cup said to have cost 800 and the Congressmen representing the State of New York made up a fund and purchased a splendid set of ornamental glass made by Tiffany The White House bride has reason to congratulate herself that all foreign donors including the Eur opean and Oriental sovereigns arrang ed to themselves pay the duties on their wonderful collection of silks rugs vases and other ornaments If the Presidents daughter had been obliged to defray from her private funds the import tax on these sou venirs it would have played havoc for some time to come with her personal income of 3000 a year A Vast Greenhouse The atmosphere of the earth acts very much in the same way as does the glass of a greenhouse it allows the rays of the sun to pass through but Imprisons the heat Thus It Is colder on the top of a mountain than at the sea level because though the mountaintop Is slightly nearer the sun the atmosphere Is very much less dense MORGAN A GOOD LOSER VENERABLE ALABAMIAN SHOWN NOT TO BE A PANAMA CANAL OBSTRUCTIONIST Is Second Oldest Man in the United States Senate But Possessed of Great VitalityStrong But Always a Square Fighter Senator John T Morgan of Alabama eightyone years old or eightyone years young is with the exception of his colleague Senator Pettus of Ala bama the oldest man in the United States Senate He is one of the very active men of the Senate and of late years has achieved considerable fame because of the vigor with which he champion ed the Nicaragua route as the proper way for the transisthmian canal and also for the ardor and perseverance of his opposition to the Panama route Because of the bitterness of his antagonism to the purchase by the United States of the concessions of the FrancoPanama canal company and because of his determined effort to defeat the adoption of the Panama route Senator Morgan has in some quarters gained the reputation of being an obstructionist A SquareFighter Nothing cou I be farther from the truth He is a great and strong fighter but his opposition is fair and square he has resorted to nine of the tactics employed by Congressional obstructionists and when he has been beaten he has admitted it This is clearly shown in a recent letter to the Panama Canal Commission declining an invitation to accompany the Com mission on a trip to the Isthmus In this letter the venerable Senator says HayVarllIadone all that I could and much more than I thought could ever be of advantage to the country to sustain the government In its purpose to construct a canal at Pana ma Yet I have not believed that success could crown their efforts even In their most costly and desperate form You may find the key to unlock the barriers that nature has Interposed at Panama Ifyou should be so fortunate I will applaud your genius and courage I will vote tq provide you with every reasonable au yourtasksponsibility This letter shows that Senator Morgan is a good loser as well as a good fighter To be a good loser is n admirable trait He does not rankle over defeat and does not nurse a cause which he sees is irretrievably lost This is practical statesmanship An Active Record Senator Morgan has had an active life He was born at Athens Tenn June 20 1824 and with his parents went to Alabama when he was nine years old He was admitted to the bar of Alabama in 1845 was a Presiden tial elector in I860 for the State at large and voted for Breckinridge and Lane was a delegate in 1861 from Dallas county to the State convention which passed the ordinance of secession joined the Confederate army in 1861 as a private in the Cahaba Rifles and when that company was assign regimentJohn regimentHe1862 and raised the fiftyfirst Alabama regiment and came out of the war a

Pennsylvania the Inventor of a New Wireless Telegraph System WllkesBarrethe next month or two to be able to bymeansnow in practical operation Since the completion of the aerial developmenttoFather Murgas has been experimenting with an underground service which he believes will be more valuable than the aerial system His experiments so far have been limited to short distances with moderate electrical power and shallow holes But he is now completing underground stations in WilkesBarre and Scran ton and will conduct the experiments on a larger scale So far as he has proceeded with this work so successfully has his theory of underground wireless tel egraph worked out that recently he announced he had no doubt of his messIagement will shortly be made despite the fact that it is estimated it will cost 22000 To accomplish this he says a shaft 3000 feet deep must be sunk in this country and one of similar depth in Europe Each of these will have to be concreted to render it impervious to dampness which would destroy the efficiency of the wires with which the sending and receiving apparatus will be connected with the surface A great deal of power will also be re shafts at WilkesBarre and Scranton are 300 feet deep and the distance Is eighteen miles The shaft at the former city was completed and partly concreted when it filled with water and another one will have to be bored The Scranton shaft is now nearly completed Father Murgas wireless system differs from all others by dispensing with the Morse system and substituting musical tones each tone represent ing a letter or a code word or group of words so that a speed about ten times as great as the fastest Morse code can be attained REWARDED BYCARNEGIE Miss Maud Titus Presented With a Medal and an Education

persons were brought forward as worthy of reward Since receiving the medal Miss Tituss father died leaving insufficient money to send her to college as she craved Miss Reifsnyder apprised the Carnegie commission of her friends desire for an education and the com mission decided to grant her 2500 Five hundred dollars of this is to be paid upon her entrance to a school 500 annually in advance for

tenement child himself yet home Is the childs great est necessity Authorities on the sub ject strongly advocaia the private fortunes of philanthropists as weii as state and municipal funds be devoted not to building Institutions for depen dent children but to pensioning widows with families and finding foster parents for orphans Of the 600000 children under 14 years of age who form 18 per cent of the population of New York City 25 000 are homeless waifs About half of these forlorn little ones are babies between the ages of two and four The causes that operate to bring about this pitiable condition are those that fill the workhouses and prisons death of one or both parents injury through accident consumption vice crime inability to obtain work and incompetence desertion juvenile de pravity Many Half Orphans Complete orphanage is less frequent than fs generally supposed In most cases that come under the attention of the charities associations the children are half orphans However when the father is the surviving parent the result as far as the breaking up of the home is concerned Is the same Ai man rarely succeeds in keeping hip children together If they are very young a womans care Is imperative and where poverty prevents the hiring of nurses the charitable institution Is the alternative If a widow Is left with a family the cbildzxa stand a better chance IQr not only is it a notorious fact that a mother will work harder and more effectively than a father to keep the brood together but the charities commissioners recogniz ing the value of even the poorest kind of a home to the child will give substantial if limited aid to that end The Great White Plague Consumption carries off 18 the met ropolitan population The lingering illness in tubercular cases is more dis COUNTRY astrous to the family than sudden death of the providing head The healthy members are deprived of the necessaries of life to provide some slight aid and a small measure of comfort for the invalid so that by the time the end comes the whole family is frequently half starved as well as wholly impoverished and to make matters worse the survivors are apt to spend the last cent on the funeral Vice and crime are yet more discour aging sources of distress The num ber of children rendered homeless through the misconduct of their par ents is large and Is increasing In temperance is the most common form of vice and brings countless evils In its train Sooner or later Gerry agent comes down on the miserable home The parents are sent to peni tentiary or workhouse or are simply put under

parents is reckoned by thousands As to the little unfortunates who are classed as ungovernable who runaway from home etcthe fault lies largely in the home Indifference neglect and ill treatment are

eagerness In this direc tion after the child has reached an aga where It can earn money To Make Better Citizens New York gives more largely to charity than any other city and its methods are most severely criticised Nearly 8000000 was contributed last year almost half of which went to in Btltutions for the dMute It has been universally agreed however that the best means for caring for the waifs of great cities Is by providing them with homes in country families The precaution of first making that the childs parents or relatives wiH never be able or willing to care for It Is urged When this point has been established and a family can be found willing to accept a foundling the child may be adopted outright But if there Is uncertainty on this point or for any reason the family is unwilling to definitely adopt a child he may be out with the understanding that he Is to receive wages for such worse as he may be fitted to do but be treat ed as one of the family In Massa SCENES OF

ventor Chapter III To the surprise of the nation Con gress held back during the day a narrow fringe of conservative members standing between the country and war The news service which had picked up again and was voluminous and detailed once more still carried the prediction that war was inevitable and could be only delayed Meanwhile the stolid helplessness t the War Department which had blan keted even the energetic efforts of the department chiefs to do the best they could at the eleventh hour had give away to a feverish activity extending even to departments unaware of th had taken a fast express ship back to Susquehanna returning at top rneed with the concentrator the plans of which he had shown Shod and Mon trus and which many months before he had constructed Shod had his orders regarding power orders which carried a sig nificance to him but to none other at the power station At No 10 Sending Station Atsins with an army of electricians and mechanics under him worked at nerve racking speed during the day Mon trus possessed by a devil of impatience foreboding and fear could not contain himself either in the office or at the station The work progressed the death dealing concentrator went into place GERMAN AIR FLEET reinforcement was added to every detail of the station its capacity was increased to the limits of possibility Night had come and was advancing Still Congress held to its tense debate Ten oclock came and Atsins Bought Montrus finding him nervously pacing back and forth in his office The young electrician was calm and charged with quiet we can get their location they will not leave he said Maybe you cannot furnish It We can if we can get Curtis said Montrus What if we cantIThen we shall have to take them when we get it replied Atsins It would be safer to annihilate them before they start Try for Curtis again ordered the general turning to the aide in the room They waited for an answer which came back presently The operator at the Sending Station No 5 reported that his efforts were not successful and he advised against many repetitionsIt him he said He 5vilJ report when he can With nothing to do but walt in nervous tension they saw the hours mount to 12 Then came a bulletin from Congress The vote was about to be taken Of the result there could be no doubt and there was none in the minds of the men sitting in the office There had been none from the start and yet now that the moment had come they looked at each other pale faced and heavyeyed Come outside said Montrua to At sins Well feel better in the open Before they could step out of the door a messenger came in Curtis reports he said The fleet has left Kiel He will send location Tell Curtis said Montrus speaking lowvoiced that the outcome of this war depends on him Wo want the location We must have it If he can send electrographs send them but first the location Wtb Atsins he walked out into the night The sky was black The air was heavy and wet A gentle drizzle was starting The two men took a few deep breaths and then turned to each other Neither spoke but each held out his hand One close grasp and they parted Atsins for the sending station Montrus for the tower When the latter stepped off the elevator at tho top he found two assist nts busy with the reflector Far away i the drizzle were the lights of Washington and the Capitol The general glanced at the bulletin but it told him nothing new The rollcall was being layef1 by members who insisted on explaining their votes notwithstand i that they and the others had reach ed tht limits of human endurance

and then he turned to the assistants jerking out his commands Ready there We ought to get something from Curtis in a moment Tell the Capitol we must have instant notice of the declaration- At another televue be got Atsins at Sending Station No 10 There they also had a duplicate of Curtis message giving the longitude and latitude of the hostile fleet Ready asked the general Ready said the electrician Montrus enveloped his head in the hood at the reflectorhardly a necessity so black was the night Across the Atlantic day had broken and Curtis had the light he needed in his electro DESTIUCTION OF THE GREAT confidence- If photography and transmission Some where above the hostile fleet Montrus knew the scout hung precariously in a position to send not only informa tion but a continuous reflection of the movements of the airships He might be discovered but that was the hazard of his occupation If he were well concealed by distance and out of the path of the enemies scouts he would win out If otherwise he at least had done his duty to the best of his ability With one finger on a button which would give the signal to Atsins the general waited word from the Capitol Sixty seconds after the vote had been taken and war declared the world would know it The hostile fleet would know it almost as soon as Montrus It was in the arrogance of superior force tha the enemy had waited the formal beginning of hostilities Ripples of light were chasing each other across the reflector shadowy forms appeared and disappeared In vapors and fos Then came an outline presentlyheOutside the hood was the black drizzling night Inside the face of the reflector was glowing with a picture of clouds lighted by the early rays of the sun and of a fleet of airships languidly floating at rest Montrus tvMiid see the flags floating from the ships could see their torpedo tubes and the graceful movement of one here and there as it changed position slightly One of the assistants at his side stooped over and shouted at bim through the hood Heres the flash Wars declared The general twitched with suppressed excitement For a moment longer be watched the picture in the reflector Then he saw that the fleet had the news Across the Atlantio the instantaneous service had carried the declaration of war Far below him was the chief city of his nation now subdued in the knowledge that it and the nation had been brought to the final test In the sending station WWi the man on whom his nations hopes depended He Crmly pressed the button In the reflector he saw the enemys squadron move He knew that it had been in readiness to start and on the instant of the receipt of the tidings was setting forth If it came unmo IectItto his nation It seemed an eternity of time as he watched the reflector Suddenly one of the ships disappeared in a blotch which sent confused shadows over the reflector Montrus trembled in his excitement The pictures grew clear for an in stant Then another blura quick succession of blurs between which ha could see nothing He grew dizzy and held tightly to the supports of the reflector to steady himself His unblinking eyes were so held by the grim silent chaos of destruction portrayed before him that the seeing faculty seemed a thing apart from him and separated completely by his dazed condition The tumultuous heaving and blur ring on the reflector cleared away It revealed a torn and shattered fleet twothirds of the ships had vanished completely others beating feebly and in their last efforts others slowly sinking through the air a few trying to escape from an unseen terror General Montrus veteran though he was shuddered at the horror of the sight Unseen unheard softly through tho thick darkness the wireless death had swept that proud aerial fleet out of existence In one tense instant And Atsins the shockheaded youth was the destroyer sitting calmly up there in the sending station with one soiled hand on the lover of his great terrible concentrator It was he who had uti lized the means formerly used to send messages to bear Intelligence across boundless areas which Increased a hundred thousandfold In voltage had now carried absolute destruction Still breathing heavily Montrus threw off the hood coming back to the utter blackness and the drizzle of the Washington night- A bulletin was flashed on the board which carried the duplicates from CurtisFleet goneVanished in Convul sionPictures Actual and Accurate Disturbance not caused by dofects but by destruction of fleetCant explain it but America is saved Montrus turned the wireless televue on to the sending station and saw At sins sitting Quietly on a box in one corner of the little room gravely smoking a short pipe his shock of blondo hair badly rumpled a smile on his freckled face Atsinsthe corn manderinchief was trying hard to ton trol his voice Atsins You have saved us It is all over Their fleet was an nihilatedIt to the old soldier

answered calmly Come over here Montrus went on Hurry and come Tomorrow Congress ll be giving you a vote of thanks youll be a bigger man than old Dewey ever was A troubled frown came on Atsins face Excuse me please general he said Im going back to the shop Ive just thought of a big improvement on my concentrator Good night longest Climb in the World Imagine making the ascent of Mount Washington by means of a staircase But a feat akin to this many travellers in China have accomplished in going to the top of the holy mountain some six thousand feet above Tainganfu The road leading to it is the best in all the kingdom About a mile north of the city walls stands a large gate amid the ruins of a once flourishing suburb Leading from this gate the road is lined with temples convents and shrines where pilgrims stop to pray If they are fortunate enough to rid them selves of the hordes of beggars Where the real ascent begins there is a stone portal which is inscribed with the fact that here the great Con fucius halted 2600 years ago not hav ing the strength to ascend the six thousand stone steps leading to the top These Taiscban stairs are by far the highest in the world for taking the number of steps in one story of an ordinary house to be twenty the num her of Taischan steps equals three hundred stories The coolies will carry a pilgrim up the stairs and back a dis tance of twice sixteen miles for thirty cents fifteen cents for each coolie When the ascent is made one finds himself upon a large plateau which is covered with numerous temples and stone monuments The main temple is that of the holy mother consisting of several buildings surrounded by a stone wall The several courts are adorned with magnificent statues and monuments of bronze with a huge statue of the holy mother on the altar Thes doors are opened once only each year when an imperial commis sion comes to collect the money offerings of the pilgrims By means of a substantial tip the guard may be in duced to push the bar of the main gate aside so that one may have a glimpse within The floor of this large temple is usually filled with a heap of coins of every description size and value probably representing 10000 in American currency The money is divided among the convents and beggars of the holy mountain but the largest share goes in to the pockets of that enterprising lady the Dowager Empress In all Man cigar factories in the West Indies Key West and Tampa a nublic reader is employed This man occupies a high seat and reads aloud newspapers magazines and uOels to the cigarmakers as

she is absolutely incapable of making up her own mind as to what the warts Drapers foave long tolerated this form of mental weakness Now they have revolted and the day of the Decider has come The

as a customer vith the earnest intense sale face that one now sees every day In the Xls stores She sees a customer a little worse dressed thai herself hesitating over the purchasD of a dress length of chiffon velvet Tho shonman has done his best to persuade the lady that It is the superlative bargain QI the season You ought to take it at once mad am he says eagerly you leave it to think the matter over you will regret it I suppose so the lady says but I want to Igok about first it is so hard to decide an evening gown is so very important And she surveys the dress length again from three different angles Entrappins the Ytethn It is now Ce Deciders moment to stop in Prstsnciing to have noticed the chiffon elvet for the first time she thrusts out a perfectly gloved hand and eagerly catches hold of an end of tho material She hangs it up against her flngure and looks at it admiringly The doubtful lady looks annoyed gives tho chiffon a tug but the Decider holds on If you are not going to buy this dress length she sasHI will take ii It Is the only one I suppose she adds turning to the attendant and is told it isMeanwhile the genuine customer has observed the exquisite turn out of the eager salehawk as she im agines the Decider to be If si ele gant a person is anxious to buy the stuff it must be worth securing she argues so without further doubt she says sharply But I am going to take it The transaction is closed and the seeming ly chagrined Decider disappears Having settled this little business of the chiffon velvet she sails off to the fur department Hero she fixes

is too ashy The tone Is despairingTry one on again madam says the saleswoman and the wife turns to take it but it Is gone She finds herself confronted with the elegant figure of the Decider who has arrayed herself in the boa and a bolo ster muff The young wife looks at her hus band and sees his eyes fixed on the charming vision of bright hair bright eyes gleaming teeth and warm com plexion set

of Trade in Washington the report adopted from the committee on agricultural statistics presents many facts of great interest to the farmers throughout the country and those dependent upon them for their prosperity showing the large scope of the work of the Department of Agriculture and the enormous actual benefit which its Investigations have been to all of our producing areas After discussing the question of the Departments methods of gathering statistical information regarding growing crops the National Board of Trade recommending a modification of the present methods including the cutting down of the great army of farmers and others who are called upon by the Department for reports on conditions of their crops and the reorganization of the Bureau of Statistics upon a basis of fewer but more reliable reporters carrying greater Individual responsibil ities and also in the cutting down of the free seed appropriations and the substitution of a practice of distribut- Ing only those seeds and plants which will be a probable benefit to the various sections of the country as a nucleus cbout which to build up a substitution of more valuable crops than those now grown by the farmers In response a request the committee received aIstatement from Secretary Wilson CAMEL LOADED BERSEEM is the Clover of Egypt is Believed to Be of Great Value to Certain of Dryer Climates lug upon the work of the Department In the collection and distribution of experimental seeds and plants which contains much of interest The Secretary says to the committee am pleased to give you a statement showing in a general way the portance of the work of seed and plant introduction to this Department and to the agriculture of the United States The appropriation for 1906 is 290000 which will be practically all used in this work In Touch With the Farmers Through the medium of the distribu tion of seeds and plants the Secretary continues the Department workers putt into practice the discoveries which they may have made in the laboratories and in their field work He mentions the distribution of disease resistant cotton seed to such portions of the south as are affected with the cotton wilt dis ease The annual loss to the south from this disease will easily reach 500000 and the Department has done much to reduce or prevent this loss at a cost of not more than lUUU for the eeed and experimental work The in troduction of some of the hardy oranges developed by the workers in the Bureau of Plant Industry is another similar illustration By a series of crossbreeding experiments between the ordinary sweet orange and the hardy Japanese citus trifoliata a very valu able and semihardy orange has been produced which will probably grow almost as far north as Washington It is expected that with several more gen erations of improvement an orange practically equal to the ordinary type of Florida or California orange will be able to withstand comparatively severe freezing weather Through the co operation of the Laboratory of Drug Plant Investigation with the Office of Seed and Plant Introduction and Dis tribution we are endeavoring to in troduce into the United States the culture of a number of different drug plants the annual importation of which at the present time runs into millions of dollars in value It is this prin ciple of cooperation which renders the work of particular value to the Department itself and of course enables the Department to do better work for the country at large Great Value from SmaH Expenditures In regard to the value of this work to the United States m my opinion the Secretary says there can be no doubt that the distribution of seeds from the time the work was first be hum introduced in the early sixties at snce in the development of our agriculture The rather hasty survey of the old records that the time at our disposal has permitted shows that the De partment has been helpful in the Introduction of many of the crops are at present considered the most valuable in the United States Among these may be mentioned the Fultz and other varieties of wheat Chinese gum Introduced in the early sixties at a cost of about 2000 and now worth easily many millions of doilars an nually to the country Kaffir corn the Introduction of which cost the Depart ment not more than 5000 of which the annual value at present is estimat ed to be about 20000000 macaroni wheat on which during the past three years we have expended about 10000 and which has enabled the farmers of the arid west to grow crops worth from 6000000 to 7000000 on lands on which they could not grow the or dinary varieties of wheat Japanese rice which has been a large factor in the phenomenal growth of the rice in dustry in Texas and Louisiana The acreage devoted to this has increased from 210396 acres in 1898 to a toW of 610700 acres in 1904 raising theI value of the land from between LOO and 150 per acre to from 3500 to 5000 per acre and the output has been increased from 179919293 pounds of poundsInbe remembered that the Department introduced the Bahia orange known as the Washington navel orange which has become the standard orange throughout California More recently the Department has expended in the neighborhood of ten thousand dollars in the introduction of the date pm into Arizona and California and al though sufficient time has not yet elapsed to enable us to state positively what the outcome will be there ap pears no reason to doubt that an en tirely new industry will be built up in these sections as a result of the efforts of the Department The present value of date importations is roughly speaking half a million dollars This consists largely of the cheaper grades of dates the finer varieties from the Sahara seldom coming to this country except in very small quantities These can undoubtedly be grown in our south west American Sugar Beet Seed The introduction of the sugar beet while not due primarily to the efforts of the Department has unquestionably been greatly assisted by the dis WITH This and Our im that sor tributlon of seed by the Department and the establishment of the sugar beet seed industry in the United States which from the present indications will be a question of only a few years will have been due directly to the work of the Department Seeing the im portance of developing our own sugar beet and seed industry plans were formulated three years ago to encourage the growing of this seed The amount expended on this work up to date including salaries and the an nual cost of American grown seed for distribution will not exceed 15000 while the value of the sugar beet seed used in the United States is at least half a million dollars annually besides the much greater value to the sugar beet laisers of having seed adapted to American conditions A theValueof using higher grade seed than is usually sent here by German seedsmen will easily aggregate 1000000 an nually Our work along this line has progressed so far that we shall dis tribute during this year 15000 pounds of American sugar beet seed and the growers will probably produce in the neighborhood of 300000 pounds next year all of which has been for at the present time Most of the Money Wasted Although the amount of money which the Secretary may use out of the annual appropriation for the distribution of seeds for the discovery collection and distribution of new seeds and plants is quite limited and but a pittance of the amount authorized by Congress for the distribution of common cabbage radish tomato and other garden and flower seeds the Department nevertheless is doing some im markable work in searching through its special agricultural explorers the countries of the old world where ag riculture has been carried on for centuries and tens of centuries and where its history of crops fades away into dim tradition and from these countries some of the most useful and attractive plants have been introduced which promise great things for American agriculture It is a question among farsighted plant breeders and JAPANESE BAMBOO TREE The Bamboo is the Staple Wood of Japan and Its Uses Spell Legion growers whether this part of the work of the Department of Agriculture does not hold out the greatest possibility to the future of America of any branch of the government Every now and then a new plant or new variety is discover ed and introduced which may revolutionize that particular branch of crop production The macaroni wheat which the Secretary mentions is a fair example Extensive trials of this wheat have been made throughout the middle belt of the United States just west of the producing area for ordinary wheat and it is believed that a vast section of possibly a million square miles heretofore thought unfit for any agriculture is capable of producing this new grain at the rate of from 15 to 20 bushels per acre With such a startling showing as this due entirely to the experimental work of the Department who shall say when the food producing limit of the world may be reachedBringing Asia to Our Doors For every section 01 the vastly di versified soil and climate of the United States says Secretary Wilson there is a corresponding spot in some portion of the old world where agriculture has been successfully prosecuted for centuries What we need is full and com plete information regarding the old world agriculture and the intelligent application of that knowledge to our own country- It would be possible to extend his letter almost Indefinitely the Secretary continues were we to go into the var ious agricultural possibilities which are now being worked up by the Office of Seed and Plant Introduction and Dis upontheting rush into the United States There are imported annually into the United States something like nve million dol lars worth of matting The owners of a newly invented loom guarantee that the value of the annual consumption of raw material to supply their fac tories will not be less than 2000000 We are working to establish the cul ture of this matting rush in the aban doned rice fields of the Carolinas and the work has already progressed far enough to justify a reasonable assur ance of success We are also working to introduce a disease resistant strain of Bermuda or Easter lily and with fair prospects of success We

there It undoubtedly some benefit attached to the distribution of vegetable seed each year the real value to the country of such distribution cannot be compared with that of even one good introduction like macaroni wheat Japanese rice an improved variety of cotton or various other articles which might be men tioned WHY FENCE WIRE RUSTS saysFarmersA bulletin setting forth the results of an investigation made by the Department of Agriculture into the corrosion of iron and steel wire fencing was sued recently to the farmers of the country Many complaints have been made to the department in the last year regarding the present quality of iron an steelwire used a fencing and to improve these conditions wit the hope f determining some rented for the corrosion Secretary Wilson order ed a thorough investigation an th perts ame to the conclusion that the chief trouble is that the average arm e insists on using the cheapest vir for fencing and the cheap wire natural ly corrodes The department claims that some manufacturers hold that if it were possible to make a better rae or wire at even a slightly higher price It would be useless to put it on the market as the American farmer would not buy it because he desires cheapness above other consideration The result of preliminary experiments made by the Agricultural Department pointed to the manganese in the wire as undoubtedly being he chief cause of the corrosion and it is stated that the more manganese there is present in fence wire the quicker it will rust or deteriorate- To show the possible causes for the MITSUMATA RAIN COAT Woven From a Japanese Plant Which the partment is Introducing in the South corrosion and that manganese is at the bottom of all the trouble the department quotes a number of steel iron and metalurgical authorities on the subject SOUTHERN FARMS Rapid Increase in Values Makes the Whole South Prosperous Manufacturers Record While it is true that the industrial development of the South is going for ward with amazing rapidity it is nevertheless true that by virtue of the extent of the agricultural interests in the South agriculture is yet the foundation of the business of that section A change from poverty to prosperICY of the farmer and a change from land without selling value to land in demand at an advance of 50 to 150 percent over the nominal price of one or two years ago is the most far reaching development in Southern advancement of the last quarter of a century It is farreaching in many ways It means that within the last year or two Southern farm properties have increas ed not less than 1000000000 in value probably at least 1500000000 But more than that it means that under this improved financial condition the Southern farmer has gained new cour age new backbone that he has learned how to market his cotton crop that he has fought to a finish the great battle as to whether the producer or the spec ulator is to control the price of his staple Having won this fight the en tire handling of cotton from the field to the factory whether the factory be in this country or in Europe has en tered upon an entirely new stage in its history It also means that land win be more thoroughly cultivated for the successful man whether he be a farmer a merchant or a manufacturer is always better able to work to good advantage than the one who is fighting a losing battle More and more the diversification of agriculture has gone on and more and more have fruit growing and truck raising hog and hominy with the meathouse at home rather than in the West been developed throughout
