The "Successful" Abroad.
If any person has an idea that the incubator business of this country is sleeping, or is not sharing in the "ex pansion" of American trade, of which we hear so much, it would be a good plan for him to drop into Dcs Moines and look into the factory of the Dcs Moines Incubator Company, where the "Successful" incubators and brooders are made. Your correspondent was astonished at the general activity about the place. It seems that the great factory, filled with busy workmen, ought to run out enough incubators to supply the world and in fact, that's just about what the Dcs Moines factory is doing. Europe, Asia, South Africa, South America and Australia are drawing upon the Dcs Moines company for machines, and the most gratifying feature of the growth of this foreign business is the fact that it has not been brought about by excessive booming or extensive adver tising by the company, but as a result of personal investigation of represen tatives of foreign farms, who have se lected the "Successful" as the machine best suited for all climates and condi tions. The company has on file in its office an unusually fine lot of letters from foreign customers, of which these may be taken as fair samples: "Dear Sir, —The Dcs Moines hot wa ter incubator purchased from your company during the past season, gave the greatest satisfaction. I found it very easy to manipulate, and although the printed instructions were often contrary to my ideas, I followed them out to the letter with highly satisfact ory results. I consider the incubator one of the best on the market, and would purchase no other. Yours faithfully, WILLIAM CHADWICK, Equitable Permanent Benefit Building, Land and Saving Inst., Sydney, Aus tralia, June 6th, 1901." "Gentlemen —In reply to your letter of the Ist inst. inquiring what success had attended my efforts in working the No. O Dcs Moines incubator, I have to say that I had 90 per cent, hatch from it, with my own eggs, and the machine is now running very smoothly with another lot, the result of which you will be advised. So far as I have gone with the machine, it has been quite up to expectations. Yours faithfully, CHAS. P. HARINGTON. Rock Lily, New South Wales, Nov. 14th, 1901." Of course these letters only confirm what thousands of Americans have al ready said, but it is gratifying to note that other lands appreciate a good thing as well as we do, and that a good honest machine, built on the right plan, of first-class material, by careful workmen, and sold at a fair price, will win favor and popularity at home and abroad.

In another column we publish the announcement of the Tacoraa com pany, a recent industrial organization whose plans contemplate nothing less than the establishment of a great iron and steel industry, at some point on the Sound. We have reason to believe that this company will do as it agrees with investors. Its managers, embrac ing such names as Henry Hewitt, jr., and A. M. Ingersoll, are successful bus iness men and above stock jobbing. The company already owns six great iron properties and the great Marble Bay (Texada Island) gold-copper mine, while its leases cover 12,000 acres of the richest coking coal lands in Wash ington. Our friends by writing the Provident Security and Trust Com pany of Seattle, may learn how to se cure an interest in this very promis ing home organization. Vessey & Mcßae have let a contract to H. W. Creason to build 20 miles of wire fench around their sheep range in the Rattlesnakes. The fence will cost about $3,000 and will enclose many thousand acres of good grazing land. Charles Lee, a pioneer bee-keeper of Yakima county, died last week. A visit to the Oregon Agricultural College shows that there has not only been a large increase in attendance within a few years, but also an even greater relative gain in the character 01 the students. The average age of those in attendance appears at least two years more than it was four or five years ago, and at present the stu dent body gives one a strong impres sion that the great mass are there to learn and have more than the average ability of young men and women of their ages. In connection with these facts it is gratifying to know that the proportion of students in the agricul tural course is growing.—Oregon Ag riculturist.
