Earth Slide at Ninth and Bank
Caused Temporary Suspen?
sion of Cars.
Serious slides of earth in the exca?
vations for the new Rueger Hotel
caused the temporary closing of Ninth
Street to traffic yesterday afternoon
?bout 5 o'clock. Just at the time the
uptown movement was hea vies t. The
slides were under the sidewalk on
the Ninth Street side of the new o.t
cavatlon. and were apparently in?
creased by the vibration of each pass?
ing car. Passageway along that -sidv
of the street was closed by the contrac?
tors, and, fearing a repetition of the
disastrous Eighth Street slide, the
fVlice Department closed the entire
street to traffic. After heavy beams
had been placed to prevent a further
collapse. Building Inspector Beck or?
dered the removal of the barricade's,

WANT TEST FARM
III EVERY COUNTY
State Board of Agriculture Has
Ambitious Scheme for Ex?
CAR TO ADVERTISE STATE
James Hellwood Presents His
Exhibit, and It Is to Be Taken
Test farms in every county In Vir?
ginia is the program of the State
Board of Agriculture, pi.mind at the
nieiting held yesterday morning at the
t'apitol. This ambitious scheme will
be put into operation at fast as the1
work can be orgamred and the means
at the disposal of the board may per?
It is unnecessary to say that the
board has no idea of having
extensive larms owned by the State in
each county, 'or that would involve an
enormous outlay. But it Was believed,
that by a plan of moving from one lo-,
cality to another, and renting land, the,
benefits of experimental farming; may
be carried Into every community in
t'esasalttee Is Massed.
To carry the scheme Into effect, the
board appointed a committee, composed)
of Berkley D. Adams. N. W. Nock.
Frank Lindsay and W. W. Sproul. to
inquire into suitable locations for the
establishment of test farms. It will;
be the duty of this committee to select
places and to rent land.
1 or the purposes of the board, some
thing like twenty-five or thirty acres'
will be sufficient. This can be rented'
for a sra.tll surn. Pains will be taken
to have the land, as far as possible,
typical of the county, so that the needs
Of the locality may be studied. Of
lourse. cotton will not be experimented
with in Wise, nor will tobacco be tried
in Clarke. The work will be appro
,o i.... to the location.
May Be Dene Cheaply.
Supervision will tc in the hands ot
the exports of the Virginia Agricul-'
tnral Kxperiment Station at Blacks- !
burg. Labor will not cost a great deal.
Altogether, the scheme is" not expected
to involve Targe amounts of money.
After a few years in a county. lt|
will be taken that the entire popula?
tion will have had an opportunity to
learn what the experiment farm haa to
teach, and the land will be surrender-,
ed to its owner. Then another coun-1
ty will be sought. By establishing a,
series of such tests tracts in different?
sections, the entire State may be cov- j
ered in a reasonable numbe: of yeara.
As a matter of fart, the board mem- j
bers who have vision believe the work'
will grow so that this time may come'
earlier than might ordinarily be ex-1
Advertise State Everywhere.
Commissioner Kolner had another,
proposition before the board, which:
was unanimously agreed to. and which:
was consummated before sunset. It I
was that an effort be made to secure'
possession of the splendid farm ex-|
hibit of James Bellwood, o? Chester?
field County, for the purpose of adver?
tising the State and her possibilities.
This advertisement Is to be taken
throughout the West if the funds can
be secured. It wtll till a car. and thenj
some of It will be left outside. It is I
intended to astonish the people of the j
West with the posslblUties of one farm j
in Virginia, as all comers to the State
Fair have been astonished. If the'
money can be had. the car will be
taken from place to place, leaving j
literature a?oout this State in Its wake.
Resides, the car will be attached to
farmers' institute trains in this State,
and sent from place to place. All this
will entail some expense, but the
State Board of Agriculture uaabjwuu the
Legislature will help.
Mr. BeJlerood ? oesewta.
The board took hold of the idea en?
thusiastically'. The first proposition
was to get the exhibit which belongs
to Mr. Bellwood. A committee was
appointed ,to see him at once, com?
posed of Commissioner George W.I
Koiner. Berkley L?. Adams. W. W. J
Sproul and Frank Lindsay. Theyi
hunted up that enterprising farmer.'
and advanced the proposition He ex?
pressed himself as flattered at the de?
sire to advertise his work throughout,
the Cnlon, and turned over his exhibit:
to tho committee on the spot, to do'
with as It wills.
Incidentally Mr. Bellwood said that
he hoped it would be an Incentive to
othera to do as he haa done. Coming
to Virginia an ill man. with hope
Magging, he la now halo and hearty
and haa made a fortune to boot.
The board agreed to meet in Nor?
folk next month. There the com-!
mittee on test farms will be expected
to report on tho first location, which
is ta bo somewhere on the Eastern
Shore, where a station will he es?
tablished to work with the track ex?
periment station already located n?ar
Norfolk. Accomac and Northampton ?
counties have already shipped 1.500,-1
?Oft barrels of potatoes this season.
