GREAT NORTHERN ROAD
BEHIND IN BUILDING
GREAT PROJECTS DELAYED
LAQK 0 7 MEN.
Four Hundred Miles to Be Built Next
Year in United States and Canada
and Five Hundred Are Now Under
ConstructionNorth Bank Line Is
Lack of men has hindered Great
Northern extension work seriously this
year and promises to delay or prevent
some work that had been planned for
1907. One of the officers of the line
says that projects are only half com
pleted that should be finished, and oth
ers are not begnu that should be well
Next year some 400 miles of line will
be built in Washington and Canada,
while in 1906 the total in Manitoba,
Washington and North Dakota was 500
One Great Line.
The company regards the most im
portant work to be the North Bank
line, called the Portland & Seattle, to
throw competitors off their guard, run
ning 130 miles and eosting $75,000 a
mile. Canyons are being crossed and
mounains hewed thru, an expensive
proceeding. The Great Northern takes
pride in pointing to what it considers
the best fine in the country.
One reason for this encomium is the
fact that the road will have a grade of
only ten feet to the mile up the Co
lumbia river, and it will be downhill
westward. It will have 3 per cent
curves, compared with the much larger
percentage of ten on
way & Navigation line.

ASSISTANT AT FARM SCHOOL
ISSUES VALUABLE TREATISE.
Edward O. Parker, After Years of
Practical Experience, Writes Bulletin
Which Is Issued by Department of
AgricultureSubject Treated In Way
to Be of Great Benefit to Farmers.
Glance at These Sample Bargains:
$125 $200 $245
The most interesting and original
document ever issued by the depart
ment of agriculture will make its ap
pearance on Monday next. It will
bear the endorsement of Secretary
Wilson, head of the department, Victor
H. Olmsted, chief clerk of the bureau
of statistics, and of Willett M. Hays,
former Minneapolitan, now assistant
secretary of agriculture. It will deal
with the cost of producing farm crops,
will represent investigations never be
fore made in the history of the country,
and will afford basic material for stu
dents, economic writers and agricultur
ists for years to come.
The publication of this bulletin will
reflect additional credit upon the al
ready noted Minnesota experiment sta
tion at St. Anthony Park, for it is
from this station principally that the
investigations have been carried on.
Edward C. Parker, assistant at the
farm, has devoted months to the accu
mulation of the statistics and spent
this summer and last on the farms of
Minnesota and the northwest in pur
suance of the work.
Farming as a Business.
The bulletin takes up farming as a
business. It deals with systematic
farm management. Crop rotation and
farm operation are covered. The cost
of producing an acre of wheat, flax,
corn, barley, millet, hay, oats, or other
is fo the

be difficult to construct, trains will be
running within a year. It will be
found then that more freight can be
hauled thiu the mountains by one loco
motive than on the Great Northern and
the Northern Pacific combined, both 2
per cent grade roads.
Other than natural hazards were pro
vided for this work if an official of the
company can be believed.
From the beginning Harriman
forces have tried to impede our progress
in every way by court proceedings and

Cram or root crops has been calcu
with reference to changing con
ditions, differences of soil and location,
and methods of work. It is a fact that
no class of industry is less able to
show by statistics the results obtained,
and to learn from comparative figures
the methods most advisable than
farming, and in all the agricultural
literature of the "United States the
works bearing upon this phase of agri
cultural economy are limited. The
work thus leads into a field not often
traversed by the agricultural investi
gator and in most of its chapters pre
sents matter entirely new.
Two Typical Farms.
A typical 200-acre farm in south
eastern Minnesota is taken as the basis
for the work of replanning, which is
an important part of the bulletin. A
typical 200-acre farm in southwestern
Minnesota is also taken. Both these
farms appear as arranged originally by
the owner, apparently without regard
for some of the essentials of econom
ical management, and these things, con
sidered in advance and put into effect
appear in the replanning, the benefits
being clearly shown.
It is predicted by the few who have
seen the advance copies that the bulle
tin will prove one of the most valuable
ever issued by the department.

he says. It could be rented fpr em
ployment agencies, but that is only an
other reason why the old building
should be demolished. Any business
enterprise that would rent the build
ing would not be likely to be any credit
or benefit to Nicollet and Hennepin
avenues, says the alderman.
While the council has not been can
vassed, it is believed by the aldermen
who have been seen that the council
would be practically unanimous in de
ciding to destroy the building. A
movement in that direction would be
assisted by the council, but no alder
man is likely to take the initiative in
view of the opposition created by the
former attempt to make a start for a
civic center and to beautify the en
trance to Minneapolis. Now that it is
impossible to obtain any revenue from
the building, and it is useless for mu
nicipal purposes, it may be that the
opposition has died away, but the al
