was ni3de by the Secretary of War
recently in pursuance of an act of
the Uuited Stated Philippine commis-

the Department of the Interior, an in

shall conduct investigations and dis
seminate useful information with reference-
to the agricultural resources
of the Philippine Islands, the meth
ods of cultivation at present in vogue
and their improvement, the practi
cability of introducing new and valu
able agricultural, products, the intro
duction of new domesticated animals
and the improvement of the breeds ,
of domesticated animals now found
in the islands, and shall in general i
