HAS PLAN TO KEEP
BOYS ON THE FARM
David F. Houston.
Washington, D. C, May 16. Secre
tary of Agriculture David F. Houston
has been doing a lot of thinking for
a long time about the farm problem
of this country. He knows pretty
much what they are, and while in of
fice he hopes to solve some of them.
The secretary is a great believer
in education, though all that he will
say about his own career is that he
was born in Union county, North
Carolina, Feb. 17, 1S66. and that he
has served as professor or principal
at many of the leading educational in
stitutions in the country.
He's a believer in education gener
ally, and is especially earnest in his
stand for education of the farmers.
He believes they have been sorely
neglected in that respect; that their
advantages have been few as compar
ed to those enjoyed by city dwellers.
"Have you discovered any induce
ment to persuade young men on the
farms to remain on them?" he was
asked the other day.
"It is a problem which cannot be
easily solved," replied the secretary.
"You can't hold men on the farms
unless you offer sufficient induce
ments. It is little wonder that farm
ers and their sons have flocked to
the cities for more lucrative and con
genial employment. For many years
they have been contributing to the
partially artificial upbuilding of our
industrial centers, to the development
of the cities as against their own com
munities and what have they receiv
ed in return? You cannot find the
best educational advantages among
farrr.icg 'communities. They are to
he obtained only in the larger cities.
"Take a farmer with six small chil-
jdren, for whom he desires to provide
! an education. They will be sent to the
!country school as ions as some one
can be found to take charge of it, but
at best the education received there
is meagre. If he would give them an
education which will be of benefit to
them, he must send them away to
some institution of learning, entailing
perhaps greater expense than he can
afford. He must either maintain his
farm at the expense of the education
of his children, or move to one of the ;
larger cities, bo, education, amoug j
other things, is driving occupants of
farms to tV.e cities. j
j "Don't think that the department of
agriculture has any idea of a policy
I of 'uplift' among the farmers." con
I tiuued the secretary. "What I have
i in mind, and what I believe will be
! fcr the beat interests of all concerned.
is education along the lines of better
production and better marketing.
More scientific methods must be de-
! vised to benefit both the producer and
the consumer. The farmers, especially
those in the south, must hare better
banking facilities; they must be able
to secure loans at a lower rate of in
terest. A system of rural credits must
j be devised to give them equal advan
I tages with city folk."
j The secretary believes that a gen
i eral reduction of the tariff will also
I help the farmer b7 reducing the pric
es of necessaries.

otlice until 9 a. m. May 19 for con

Permanent Organization. Pending j"
appointment next Tuesday evening by j
the Moiine club of six members of the
Greater Moiine committee, the com
mittee as temporarily formulated was
unable to take up at its meeting yes
terday the matter of permanent organ
isation on to definitely arrange there
fore. It is expected that the 18 men
appointed by the Retail Merchants' as
sociation, the manufacturers and the
Moiine club will be present, and the
men who have launched the plats; will
turn the whole plan over to them. Ac
cording to the plan already outlined
these 18 men are to appoint 12 others.
If these are appointed in time, then
the work of permanent organization
can be taken up next Friday. Or at
least a committee can be appointed oif
constitution and bylaws. There was
some discussion at yesterday's meet
ing of the advisability of limiting
membership on the committee to 31
members, including the mayor. . The
consensus of opinion seemed to be
that this would be a matter that
ought to be left Jo the committee of
31 when organised. It was explained
by Mr. Lourie that in Davenport the
Greater Davenport committee is limit
ed to 30 members.
Trouble With Patient. George Kem
merting, city health officer, and Dr.
Perry Wessel. city physician, are not
finding a path of roses in the fulfill
ment of their duties in connection with
the stamping out of Moiine' s smallpox
epidemic. Another case developed yes
terday and in a place which made it
peculiarly difficult for the health au
thorities. The case is that of a young
Lithuanian, who has been in this
country only five months and is" un
able to speak a word of English, much
less understand the legal restrictions
governing the handling of smallpox.
As a result the officers found it nec
essary to use force to remove him to
the pest house.
Fire Limit Extension. Question of
extending the fire limits west of Sev
enth street on Fourth avenue wiy be
brought before the city commission at
an early meeting, as result of in
formal conferences that have been
held recently between some of the
residents in that section of the city
and certain of . the commissioners.
Since that section of the city is build
ing up fast, residents wish to decrease
the fire hazard that the construction
of additional frame buildings would
Fined $100 and Costs. After a night
of intoxication during which he enter
ed a restaurant owned by Victor
Phelps, known as Vic's place, on
Fourth avenue, near Fifteenth street,
and raised a disturbance by throwing
the crockery around, Charles Gossel
skl, a young Russian, was fined $100
and costs in justice court yesterday.
The Rusian entered the restaurant and
ordered a meal, asking for a certain
brand of sauce. Al Stevenson, then in
charge, explained that there was none
in the place but GossolskI Insisted
that he be given some. Explanation
did no good and he finally became an
gered, picked up a heavy glass bowl,
weighing several pounds and hurled
it at Stevenson's head. Fortunately
his aim was bad, and the bowl crash
ed against the wall, but Stevenson re
fused to take any more chances and
called the police. "Too much drunk,"
was Gossolski'B explanation. "Twen
ty days to sober up," was Justice
Fred Entrikin's reply.

Kr. Richard's Experience With Dif

Buttermilk for Three Yer$.
Cccilton, Md. Mr. George Richards,
ot this place, during the past 12 year,
has probably tried more different diets
than the average person would ever use
in a lifetime.
What he has to say about his experi
ments, must therefore be hiehly interest
ing to anyone suffering from indigestion
or stomach troubles of any kind.
He says: "For more than . 12 years,
"suffered wilh stomach troubles, and
paid hundreds cf dollars for doctor bills

I lived on dried peaches an j buttermilk

that would not ve me pain was raw eggs.
