WE NEED MORE BURBANKS.
The boy in school fifty years ago looking upon the map of the United
States in his geography found the vast territory between the Pacific Coast
states and the Missouri River designated as the Great American Desert.
Since that time the surveyor has clearly defined the state lines, and
into these states hundreds of thousands of brave people have pioneered.
There today great cities stand, sky scrapers pierce the sky, the hammer
is heard, business thrives, the parched lands are kissed with irrigation
ditches that drain the glaciers' melting flow and spread bounty and pros
perity into the lap of an aggressively progressive people.
On that desert land the great Burbank lives. From out that hopeless
wilderness he brought forth fruits that have been the wonder of the world.
Daniel Webster was a wise man. But amazement would make him
wiser were he alive today. On the floor of the United States Senate he
opposed the acquisition of the Oregon territory because he said, "You
cannot roll a wheel out there." he
Soon after Daniel made this declaration a fellow by the name of Whit
man rolled a wheel out there. On his wheel Whitman laid a load of apple d
tree roots. With them he planted out there what have grown to be the
greatest apple orchards in the world.
The changed map has taught anew the old lesson that all things are
possible to the men who deny defeat to the men who dare. a,
Twenty years ago we used to speak of undeveloped sections as "the
last west." As we have closed in on these unsettled places we found the "t
new east. m
While developing ways to fertile fields in what was once the desolate m
desert we learned much. Now abandoned farms in New York and New su
England are attracting the college trained agriculturist of the West. The at
Carolinas and the Southern States about them are revealing farms that so
lure the Iowan, than whom there is no better farmer known. Florida, long
looked upon as a tangled mass of semi-tropical verdure, is proving to be
a matchless garden spot. Good land Is everywhere.
Our agricultural colleges are turning out engineers to irrigate and be
drain; chemists who teach us how to replenish the soil; agronomists W*
who tell us how to grow better grain and captains of commerce who show
us how to make a better product-pack and find a better market. These S''
colleges are changing farming from drugery to a scientific profession. ti
Lincoln said, "I always plucked the thistle and planted a -lower I
wherever I though a flower would grow."
Give us more Burbanks; give us more scientifically trained men, and
we have land enough in the United States to feed and clothe all the people
in the whole wide world.

EDUCATION-! PAYS BIG.
An in\e atlo~ ol the income of
554 turlmlers in one coulnty of Missourt,
made by the Missouri college of agri
culture, showed that the educated
farmer's income was 71.4 per cent
larger than that of the untrained
farmer. A survey of the incomes of
635 farmers in seven counties of Kan
sas, made by the Kansas State Agri
cultural college, showed that the
trained farmer has a greanter income
by nearly $1.000 a year than those of
farmers with a conmmlon school educa
tion. The United States Department
of Agriculture reports a survey of
•i three representative areas in Indiana,
Illinois, and Iowa. It is shown that
tenant farmers with a college educa
tion received an average labor income
'u of $41' more a year than the man
d with a high school education and $979
more a year than the man with only a
d common school education.
Cornell university reports that men
-s having more than a high school educa
tion received $'25 more a year than
farmers with a high school education
and $529 a year more than farmers with
a common school education. They also
report that 5 per cent of the farmers
with a district school education had
1 labor incomes of more than $1,000,
r, and that 20 per cent of the farmers
I- with a high school education had labor
incomes of more than $1,000. Thirty.
per cent of the farmers with more
than high school education had labor
incomes of more than $1,000. A high
school education is worth as mucn to
the farmer as $6,000 worth of five per
cent bonds. A college education is
worth twice as much.
Someone has estimated that if a
married woman, during a period of
30 gears' married life, has attended
to the ordinary duties of the house
hold. she has served nearly 300,U()
meals. has put up more than 9,000 jars
of preserved, devoted about 35.104
hours to sweeping, washing and scrub
i bing. and so on at some length. Then
I this investigator has figured that, at
accepted prices for this work, it is
worth considerably over $100,000, and
he asks the question, "Why cannot she
retire 6on her savings?" And he
answers his own question by asking
another one, as follows: "How do -

An enterprising Parisienne has
opened a millinery establishment with
the interior appearance of that cele
brated one-story place in Paris, "A
la Belle Anglais." The original little
shop stood from 1765 till some few
years ageo In the Place St. Jhilippe du
Roule, and was famed throughout
Europe. Its clients had included Marie
Antoinette. Princess de Lambelle,
Madame Recamler, Pauline Bonaparte
and Elizabeth Foster, duchess of Dey
onshire. To these was added one dis
tlaguished male customer, K. de Cha
teaubrliand, who preferred over all
others obtainable elsewhere, the cra
