Bets Pace for All States with
Her Agricultural High
y' Schools.
By W. W. Jermane.
"Washington, Oct. 33.W. M. Havs,
assistant secretary of agriculture,
talked very interestingly toilav to The
Journal correspondent regarding
Minnesota agricultural college work,
contrasting what is being done in Min
nesota with similar work in other states.
The importance of the Minnesota
work is emphasized every dav, he
said. Our plan of the agricultural
high school work is finding a place in
the country life educational system of
the entire country. Nebraska WPR the
first to follow our plan, and Oklahoma,
North Dakota and Maine w*re next in
line. Alabama has organized nine
agricultural high schools, practically
one for each congressional district.
Georgia has recently passed a law for
the organization of eleven agricultural
high schools and the department will
help locate them. Wisconsin has made
a good beginning in its experiment with
county agricultural schoools.
Agricdultural educators all over the
country are following with undisguised
interest Minnesota's recent enlargement
of its plan shown in the new agricul
tural high school of Crookston, and our
state is regarded generally as the lead
ing force in this important work.
Chance for Teachers.
"The work of special interest at
present is the development of men
trained to superintend and teach in the
agricultural high schools. The depart
ment Washington is constantly re
ceiving requests for such teachers and
the salary paid ranges from $1,000 to
|'Just at this iuncture the Minnesota
university could not do better work than
to gather scores of the right kind of col
lege graduate thruout thewest who have
had farm experience and train them
with a -year course into the ways
and sub.."'/ matter of the school and
college oi "griculture at St. Anthony
Those who have delayed in develop
ing faith in the agricultural education
should now sit up and take notice. Dur
ing the past two years this department
of agriculture here has increased its
appropriations one-third. The increase
at the last session of congress was more
than the entire appropriation for the
department when Secretary Wilson as
sumed office nine years ago.
The growth of agricultural matters
in the northwest is shown by increased
circulation of Minnesota's three exeat
agricultural periodicals, Farm. Stock
and Home and the Northwestern Agri
culturist of Minneapolis, and the Farm
er at St. Paul, have increased their cir
culation in fifteen years from 25,000 to
upwards of 250,000."
Crookston School a Boon.
Professor Hays thinks that the new
school at Crokston ought to help rather
than harm the St. Anthony Park insti
tution. This Crookston school will no
doubt show by its large emollment the
oft-proved fact that secondary schools
need to be nearer the homes of their
pupils to get the best results.
Professor Hays continued: "Th
course of study wrought out by the fac
ulty at St. Anthony Parks thru it eight
years of existetioe-

New York, Oct. 13.An associate of
James J. Hill says:
Mr. Hill is enthusiastic over United
States steel, and while he considers the
ore deal which he has made in the in
terest of the Great Northern and
Northern Pacific one of his greatest
financial coups, he is frank in admit
ting that the benefits to the United
States Steel corporation are as great
as are the benefits to his railroads.
"The delay in the announcement of
the ore deal was not due to Mr. Hill.
The lease had been arranged for many
days before the announcement, but be
all the signatures were affixed one
of Henry H. Eogers' associates went to
J. Pierpont Morgan and informed him
that Eogers said he saw no good rea
son why the steel corporation should
purchase the Hill ore lands. Morgan
saw the point and he and his associates
were given an opportunity to purchase
a line of steel stock before the official
announcement of the lease."
