STATE IS RICHER
On Account of Just One
WHAT HE DIDFORJJORN YIELD
Exploits One Idea at a Time
But It Has Done Wonders
WHAT KAHMEKS SHOULD IU3AD
In the November American Mag-
azlnc appears an article about Pro
fessor I'. (1. Holden, of (lie Iov.a
State Colleg0 of Agriculture, who
taught the people of his State how
to raise more and better corn. Since
he began his work nine years ago,
tlie average yield of corn in Iowa
has Increased 27,000,000 bushels
annually. The following Is an ex
tract: "If you were told that one man
had Increased the wealth of one
State by thirty million dollars you
would be Inclined to be skeptical,
yet that was the declaration of Gov
ernor Cummins, of Iowa, with ref
erence to the contributions of Pro
fessor I. G. Holden to the knowl
edge of corn raising in that State.
Professor Holden occupies n chair
in the Iowa State College of Agri
culture, and outside of this, holds
a unique position, which has been
aptly characterized as that of the j
evangelist of sclentilic agriculture.'
He has done more than any one
man to popularize the work of tho
Iowa Agriculture College among
the farmers there. He soon dis
covered, In his college work, that
the farmers were not going to learn
how to farm; but, on the other
hand, had very little use for the
bdentlllc farmer. To change this
condition became the professor's
ambition. His thinking on the sub
ject evolved big Ideas which re
sulted in the establishment of the
farmers' short courses, special seed
corn trains, the county demonstra
tion work on the county poor farm,
tho State corn show, and finally the
National Corn Exposition. Thes"
have made it posslblo for him to go
to the farmers Instead of waiting
for them to come to him.
i "Professor Holden is an enthu
siast whose enthusiasm Is conta
gious. His convictions are deep
beated and. anything ho believes In
he can make others Bee as he does.
For this reason he was able to go
to presidents of railways and con
vince them that It was to their In
terest to run special seed-corn
trains and pay all the expenses.
"The special tralns would have
been failures If Professor Holden
had not known how to tell wnat he
knew. He did most of the speak
ing, until his assistants had learned
how to talk to farmers In their own
language Farmers will accept
scientific facts fiom Piofessor Hol
den as readily and gladly as child
ren will take sugar-coated pills.
"Part of his success is due to the
fact that ho exploits only one Idea
at a time. When he went out on
his first seed-corn train, his slogan
was 'Test your seed corn,' saying
nothing nbout tho preparation of
tho soil, fertilization, or cultiva
tion. He asked tho farmer to
study his own cornfield and ho
would discover that about one-
fourth of the stalkB were loafing
around all summer, doing nothing.'
This was1 due to poor germination
of the seed, and the latter required
as much culrtajlpn nnd care as tho
thrifty' stalk. "' The effectiveness of
this sort of teaching Is shown in tho
increase of an average of 27,000,
000 bushels annually In Iowa, since
Professor Holden began his work
in that State."

M'LEAN COUNTY FARMERS
FAVOR CUTTING IT OUT
As Regards Tobacco An Ap
peal For Other Farmers
To Do Likewise.
At a great meeting of Equity
farmers and tobacco growers held
at Faith, In McLean county, last
week, much Interest Was, manifest
ed and among other Important work
done, the following resolution was
unanimously adopted, viz: "Re
solved, that we, the Jtobacco grow
ers in session at Faith, Ky agreo
to stand by the price as fixed by tho
A. S. of E. for the 1912 crop of
tobacco and we respectfully ask all
other local Unions to take similar
action nlong this line; and, when
the proposition was put as to
whether we would stand by the or
ganization in proposed action for
next year, the vote indicated a
complete landslide in favor of
standing firm for the A. S. of E.
T. L. SON, President.
E. G. MATTINGLY, Sec'y.
The foregoing resolution has the
right kind of sentiment in it and
we hope all locals will respond to
the request as made, call meetings
nnd put beforc your members tho
matter as to the planting of no to
bacco in 1913, provided tho present
crop is not sold by December 15
as provided in the Central City Con
vention. It appears that sentiment
Is rapidly growing In favor of the
output proposition, and farmers
both in nnd out of the A. S. of E.
will gladly cut out and take a rest
for one year. So we urge local
county and district unlona to take
action at once and report all such
action to State Union Headquarters
and also be ready to give this im
portant matter proper attention
when we meet in State Convention
at Calhoun an December 11, 1912.

Sat moping, draped in spirits low,

As only one who's fizzled can?
