F. D. Coburn, secretary of the Kansas
board of agriculture, must be unusu
ally careful with his crop statistics and
his advice to the Kansas farmers in the
future, says Charles Cessions, in the
Kansas City Journal. Secretary James
Wilson, of the federal agricultural de
partment, is on his trail, hoping to pick
up something on Coburn that will crip
pie his fame as an authority on agricul
'"Watch everything Coburn does; read
everything Coburn puts out, and report
any mistakes or misstatements to me,'
is the order which Wilson has given to
his army of experts. And the experts
are watching and reading Coburn's stun
very carefully. So far, they have found
no mistakes or misstatements to report
to their chief.
Secretary Wilson is nettled over
couple of jabs which Mr. Coburn made
Two years ago Secretary Wilson put
Kansas in the class of "aria" states.
Coburn wouldn't stand for that, and
he Issued a pamphlet showing that
Kansas produced more stuff than
Iowa, the home of Mr. Wilson; that
in the production of wheat and corn
combined Kansas led all states of the
union; that Kansas farmers had more
money on deposit, per capita, than the
farmers of any other agricultural
state, and a lot of information of that
kind, which thoroughly discredited the
Wilson statement that Kansas was an
Then, to rub salt Into the wounds,
it just happened that Secretary Wilson
had some speaking engagements in
Western Kansas, and had to use boats
to tret to the places on account of the
heavy rains. Coburn gave the Western
newspapers the tip, and they printed
cartoons of Wilson doing "arid Kan
sas In a boat.
When the green bug was devastat
ing the Kansas wheat fields recently,
out of the goodness of his heart Sec
retary Wilson decided to give the
Kansas farmers some advice as to how
to heat that bug in the future. He
wrote a letter to Secretary Coburn and
asked that it be, printed in the Kan
sas naners. In it Mr. Wilson advised
Kansas farmers to plant turkey red
wheat. He paid that in 1S97 he made
norne experiments and found that tur
kev red spread out and withstood the
ravages of bugs better than any other
kind. It was great on tne stool, etc.
Coburn printed the Wilson letter an
right. Then he, gave out a statement
himself, showingthat for the past
twenty years , Kansas had practically
nroduced no other kind of wheat.
Millers and wheat growers over the
country began to poke fun at Wilson
for makinsr experiments in is wun
turkey r?d wheat, which Kansas had
grown successfully, and almost ex
clusively, for a decade before. For the
federal agricultural department to be
held up S3 ten years behind the times
grated on Mr. Wilson s nerves, in
fact, it was the straw that broke the
camel's back. He couldn't endure the
grilling of Coburn any longer without
trying to get even. so ne gave ti
order to his experts.
"I have read Coburn's last biennial
report of a thousand pages or more
from cover to cover," said one of Mr.
Wilson's experts, "and I could not find
a thing that we. could attack. It
should be used as a text book in every
agricultural college in the world. But
I dare not say so to my boss."
Secretary .Wilson recently added to
his reputation as an agricultural and
cattle sharp by stating that there
5-hould be no objection on the part of
the public to paying the present high
prices for meat, "as It Is all owing to
the good times and high wages paid
Some people contend that Secretary
Wilson is not a humorist.

Gibson, the artist, and his family are
back home from Paris where they have
been since December, 1905. They will
spend the summer in this country chief
ly at Mr. Gibson's place at Dark Har
bor, Maine. Mr. Gibson has been study
ing in oils in Paris.
Speaking of his work, he said that
he' had been "just working away and
destroying things." He is not studying
under any particular master, but has
his own house in Paris and paints
there instead of one of the regular
ateliers. He expects to spend at least
another year there, possibly more. He
said that his lines of work had been
much the same as when he left this
country only they had been in a dif
ferent .medium. He had been painting
laces and figuies and striving for
technique. He has not given up black
and white, however, he explained, and
orobably would not for some time.
Other than a determination to return
to Paris for another year, his plans
were unformed. The foreign artists in
Paris have treated him with much
kindness, he said, and he had learned
NEW USE FOR OLD CARS
They Are Being Worked Into a Sum
mer Hotel for Girls.
New York, June 24. Discarded street
cars given by the New York City Rail
way company are being used to con
struct a summer hotel for working
girls within ten miles of New York
city. About 20 of these have been trans
ported to the chosen spot and volunteer
workmen from the ranks of East Side
settlement workers are putting them in
shape for occupancy.
Undertaken by two or three young
women who have for years been identi
fied with settlement work, the new plan
is well under way and within two
weeks it is expected there will be a
fair sized colony of car dwellers. Only
20 will be used this season. They will
be divided into" suites of two cars each
to an apartment, one for sleeping and
one for use as a sitting room. There
will be one devoted to kitchen uses for
the entire colony. It is expected that
the undertaking will be become self
sustaining. Girls will pay whatever
they can afford, $1. or $3 a week, and
each girl will be permitted to occupy
one of the little suites for two weeks.
