The Chihuahua aud Pacific railroad
has inaugurated au enterprise which,
while expensive now, Avill suou be of
great lK?nefit to the couutry aud indi
rectly to the road itself, says the' Chi
huahua (Mexico) correspondent of the
New York Post. This is the education
of the Mexican farmer, 'the primitive
way iu which many Mexican farms are
couducled would seem ahuot-t impossi
ble to the average American, who is
familiar with the improvements in ag
ricultural machinery used iu the United
States. Hut in many parts of this coun
try, especially In those away from rail
roads, wheat is still thrashed out with
a hand flail, w ine is made by treading
the grapes under foot, transportation
is accomplished by ox teams drawiu;
huge and immensely heavy carts, iflie
wheels of which are made from the
holid truuks of trees, and modern plows.
harrows ami cultivators are unknown.
With such appliances only small crops
. can be obtained, aud the officers of the
road decided that if they could Intro
duce modern methods they would in
crease the productiveness of t lie farms
along their ronte and would In the end
greatly Improve their own business.
So they hired Professor J. Ci. llaney
of the United Slates agricultural ex
periment station In Kansas aud told
j him to show the Mexicaus how to run
a farm. They furnished him with a
supply of modern farming implements.
such as the Mexicans could buy if they
wished, and sent him along the line to
give practical lessons to the hacieu
dados. Mr. Iiancy found the farmers
willing students. He furnished them
with seed and showed them how to use
the tools which he had with him. For
the first time iu the history of the coun
try American plows, harrows and dou
ble cultivators were used on the farms
alomr the line of the railroad. The
Mexicans were quick to see the bene
fits of the new tools, aud the crop that
they have just gathered has proved to
them that the results of properly work
ing the soil are to their financial good.
The result is that they are buying im
plements similar to lliose used by Mr.
Hauev aud are preparing to cultivate
their farms more Bcieutically iu future.

Pennsylvania railroad officials are ex

telegraphy on the lines between Phila

the prepared papers are placed Iu a

throne of the queen of beauty and. by
way of compliment, raised their hands
to their brows to imply that her beau
