innocent of block-signals and other

human element is better on branch lines?

The United States, says the Depart-
ment of Agriculture, is probaiily the
largest consumer ot Circassian walnut,
one of the world's best known and
most expensive cabinet woods.
The high cost of Circassian walnut is
due to the scarcity of the beautifully
figured variety demanded for furniture
and interior finish, for the tree ltself is
more widely distributedthan almost any
other of commercial imnortance. The
demand for the best wood, however,
has alwavs outrun the supply. Even in

Elbert S. Brigham ' Appointed
CommlsJloncr of Agriculture.
Tho appointmcnt of Elb;rt S. Brig-
ham, Middlebury, 1903, as Commissioncr
of Agriculture will please his many
friends in this vicinity, wlio have fol
lowed his career with interest. Tho
following editorial is from the Burling
ton Freo Prees:
Governor Fletcher's administration
will have its effcct, not in tho present
alono, but also in the futuro of the
State. A demonstration of the prob
ability of this asscrtion is found in the
appointmcnt of Elbert S. Brigham to be
commissioncr of agriculture and in the
policy Ieading up to this appointmcnt.
Thc policy pursued by Mr. Brigham's
predccessor, O. L. Martin, in his
very excellent work for the State had
for its object the education of the
farmers. This was valuable, but from
its very nature was sure to reach a
point where it could be handled better
by the distinctively educative depart.
mentofthe State's machinery. Gov
ernor Fletcher's policy, if we intcrpret
it aright, is that if there is education
along lines of agriculture to be done we
should aim to make this the charge of
the agricultural departmcnt of the
State University, and leave the com-
missioner of agriculture free for other
Under the new'policy the commissioncr
of agriculture should be the advance
agcnt of the farmers of Vermont. It
should be his work to hclp fmd new mar-
etsfor our products, nnd open them to
our farmers. The governor believes that
given profitable outlets for thcir pro-
duce the farmers will be quick to learn
the most cconomical way to grow it.
When Governor Fletcher outlined
this thcory to one man, the comment
called forth was something as follows :
'The only trouble with the scheme is
that it calls for a ten thousand dollar
man. io hll this place the Uovernor
hast appointed the one available man
who measures entirely up to the re-quiremcnts.
Elbert S. Brigham is a native Ver-
monter. Furthermore he is a native
farmer. He is not only a farmer but
a college graduate. He is not only a
college graduate but a practical suc
cess. And the manner in which he
achieved practical success on a Ver
mont farm was by discovering and
opening np for himself a profitable new
market. The initiative and originality
which enables Mr. Brigham to make a
lucrative new market for himself in the
production and sale of seed potatoes
should make him of exccptional value
to the State.
This appointmcnt is the better for
being non-political. Mr. Brigham is en
tirely aloof from politics. By persona
persuasion in the last campaign he was

Unknown Pleader for the Rural
A contribution to the Wisconsin Agri-
culturist, a weekly publication that has
an extensive circulation among the
rural population of the Northwest, pub
lished, in a recent issue, the following
plea for the mral carrier:
"Don't expect tho mail cairi-r to do
more than what Uncle Sam says is his
duty, when you are not willing to do
even as much as Uncle Sam expects of
you to do. Don'texpect him to pick up
loose coin when the weather is cold,
just because he may have sometimes
accommodated you in the warm weather
by so doing. Dont expect the carrier
on days when you would postpon a
trip to the city because you are afraid
of the snow drifts. Don't expect the
mail carrier's team to make twcnty
four miles with the snow up to the
neck-yoke, just because you may have
plunged a big plow team two or three
miles into town nnd back.
"Dont expect the mail carrier to
break the roads when you don't think it
worth your while to do it. It is you
who will miss thc mail, not he. Don't
sit in the house and wait until the mail
is stalled before going out to help, for
the carrier will turnaround and be gone
back before you can reach him, as he
don't know that you are coming. Don't
write to Washington about the carrier
failing to get through some road before
he reaches your district; you will get
moresatisfaction ifyou notify the town
"Don't wait until the last minute be
foro you buy stamps, money orders,
etc. ;itmay be a stormy day or you
might miss the carrier, and it is not the
way you buy your coffee and sugar for
breakfast. And don't wait for the path
master to ask you out before you go
out to open the roads after a snow
storm; he may be sick or away from
home. "One Who Knows."
