EDUCATION FOR THE FARMER
Department of Agriculture Distributes
Thousands of Publicauons on
Men who were farmers fifteen years
ago. but who have become city busi
ness mon, would find a vast change In
the methods of tilling the soil and
raising crops were they to retun. to
?heir original way of earning a liveli
hood. Farming methods have under
done a wonderful transformation.
Many labor-saving devices have been
'nvented, new ways of dealing with
-parasites have been discovered, in
tensive farming is in vogue, and fhe
sys: em of rotating crops is In force.
The farmer cf fifteen years ago would
find today that planting and growing
and doctoring are on a more scientific
basis, and that profits are more cer
tain and regular. While the knowl
edge of successful experiments was
circulated from farmer by word of
mouth in the old days, new education
al forces are now at work, says the
Washington Post. Probably the great
est of these is the department of ag
riculture. From a statement JUP*. Is
sued, lt appears that nearly 200,000,
000 publications of all kinds have been
printed and distributed since Secre
tary Wilson assumed control. More
than half that number has been cir
culated in the last five yearn. Four
hundred and fifty different pamphlets,
discussing subjects of special interest
to farmers and expressed in terms un
derstood by all, have been Issued, and
$4.000.'?00 copies have been placed i TI
the hands of applicants, mostly farm
ers. who had need of the Information
they contained; and nf these more
than 39.GOO.CnO were distributed with
in the last five yen rs. The magnitud*
of this work of disseminating the in
formation PO earnestly sought and so
carefully verified is only measurable
by the immense advance of scientific
agricultural knowledge and practice
by the progressive farmers of the
country, lt has cost many thousands
of dollars to issue all the pamphlet!
and documents of various kinds, btr

Dr. Maurie? F. Egan, Minister tai
Denmark, Relate His Views of the '
Farmer? of Dixie.
A new -solution for the high cost off
living problem hoe been found* by Dr.;
Maurice Francia Egan, American mte
iater to Denmark, after a month's]
Journey through the Eouth. Mr. Egan)
waa Invited to make the trip by tfcet
Southern Commercial Congress, tai
order to lecture on farming in "Dixie."1
Mr. Egan's opinion of tb? farmer]
of the states he visited is not very!
flattering, but he declares that they*
are rapidly advancing, and In th?
course of time "will be on a par, Inj
so far as efficient conservation off
crops ls concerned, with the ruralitesj
of Denmark." To a newspaper repren
sentative Mr. Egan said: i
*The Dauish farmers are an inteUi-'
gent class of persons and devote all
their timo to close study of their soil)
and how to improve its Income. Theyi
are all members of the Co-operative
Society, which, to my mind, is tho
solution of the high cost of living
problem. Such a society does away*
absolutely with the middleman, and:
In addition to reducing the price of1
the commodity to the consumer, yields
a larger profit to the producer.
"Denmark is^ purely an agricultural
country. There are no industries and
no minerals, therefore, the people
must turn their attention to earn their
living by agricultural pursuits. They
nave their choice between conserving
heir soil and emigrating, and they
have chosen the former with all the
patriotism worthy of good Danes.
"An opinion I formed on my trip
may surprise the majority of your
-eaders, but I am convinced that It is
i fact. I believe that the farming
p.puntry of the southern states fe more
adapted to the production of butter,
"egf? unrf hnpon than ft ls for tho rals
!ng of cotton and tobacco.
"Denmark farmers get every inch
of fertility out "of their soil, while
American farmers do not. One Mis-i
sissippi fnrmer told me that he had1
exhausted' three farms, and would*
igaln move as soon ns the one he is
now tilling is exhausted. Dermark
'armers are educated and do not 'ex
haust" their soil. They believe Int
rotation of crops. A specialist visits
each f.irmer every eighteen months
and explains the workings of th?
"The southern farmers are showing
a great Interest in conservation, and
ire becoming more open-minded.
They are ever ready to receive sug
gestions which will enable them to
profit most., and should be. It 1?
bathetic to note that these men. who
live cn the most beautiful and fertile1
soil In the world, do not realize their
advantages. There the cattle could
.--raze al! the year round. As it is,
the feeding of live stock is much neg
"The key that will release them
from their handicap ls found In tho
co-operktive system and education."
Assurance of Farm.
There ls nothing like the farm
when hard times come knocking at
tho door. There may not be much
mcney going in seasons of stress, but
there is always the assurance of a
full table, a roof over one's head and
no fear of an evicting landlord. .
The man who provides himself with
everything new and useful In the way
of labor-saving machinery may be a
good farmer but he is a poor citizen
and falls far short of his duty if he
fails to provide equal facilities to help
his wife in her share of the work.
Thinker I? a Winner.
The farmer may not have as much
time to read as would be good for
him. but he Las plenty of time to
think. Ana the thinking farmer, tl
he thinks along rieht lines and backs
his thought with his muscle, is a sure
Economy may also be practleed by
several poultrymen in one locality
co-operating and buying their grain in
cnrload or half carload lots, direct
from the miller: in this way saving
the profits of the local grain dealer. .
Kindness Never Lost.
Kindness to animals as well as to
humans is never lost. It ennobles th?v
nature of the giver, whether there bn
an immediate or a visible return or
not. Usually It does Its work unseen?
Advantage of Co-Operation.
One advantage of co-operative dalry
improvement associations, says Prof.
Hayden, is thnt proved bulls can To t
passed from one herd to another. An
other ls that money can bo saved by
