to have the invltutlon list limited to

He said he recognised Hint the fnir-!

thought It wus part of the Inauxurnl

Of The Soil Are Quite Few
Washington, Nov. 29 The 'element
of agricultural labor, not only In the
United States, but in nearly alt other
civilized countries, Is relatively a di
minishing ono, duo to tho rapid In
crease of Industrialism, and there
seems to bo no way at present of meet
ing successfully tho problem thus pre
sented, say exports of tho department
of agriculture They add that this do
clino In farm labor, whllo very notice
able in lato years, has been evident In
tho figures following ovlory census
slnco 1820. In that year 83 per cent
of all persons having gainful occupa
tions woro omployed In agriculture. In
1840 tho porcontngo was 77, In 1870
It was 47, In 1880 it was 44, In 1890 It
was 37, In 1900 it was 35, or about
one-third ot tho persons having gain
ful occupations. The agricultural frac
tion declined from 1820 to 1900 almost
48 per cont, and during tho samo per
iod tho number ot persons having gain
ful occupations In agriculture increas
ed from 2,008,958 to 10,249,651.
Tho figures for other countries com-
blno tho occupations of agriculturo,
forest work and fishing and for tho
purposes ot tho comparison tho same
combinations are rnado for this coun
try. In tho United States In 1900
thoso three groups employed 35.9 por
cont of alt persons having gainful oc
cupations. In Germany this porcont
ngo was 35, In Franco 41, In tho Neth
erlands 30, In Kngland and Wales 8,
showing tho extreme subordination ot
agriculturo to Industrialism. Tho por
contngo for Switzerland was 31, for
Austria CI, for Hungary 09, for India
C7, for Italy 59 and for Sweden 19.
Tho Increased productivity of labor
duo to tho iiho of Improved machinery
ami Implements Is Illustrated In the
caso of corn From 1855 to 1891 the
tlmo of human labor to produce a bush
el of com, on an average, declined
from 4h. 31m. to llm. This was be
cause Inventors had given to the farm
ers the gang plow, tho disk harrow, tho
corn planter drawn by horses, tho lour
section harrow for pulveilzliig tho top
soil, the Hoir-hludor drawn by horses
for removing husks from the eats,
stalks tiud hladea for footling, and
many others. The corn shullor, operat
ed by sleaui, will shell u bushel ot
corn in one minute, whllo lit the old
wny It required tho labor of a man
for 100 minutes to do the same work.
With regard to the futuio, the ox
perlH or the agrlcuturul department
say that farm labor will not ho recruit
ed In any appreciable degree fioni the
cities. "The farmer would not need
to get his labor from the cities," suys
one authority, "If ho could hold tho
country population to the soil. Recog

tho chlldieii on the farm and of keep
