It was onco generally believed that some day ho would live there with his di vorecd wife, whom tho wealthy mine owner married undrir romantic circum stances.

FZ&JG I V FltAVK VRPFVTER Special "orre?pndn-e of The Sun.iai R public Washington. June J4. Fresh dates will some day be as common in thli country as bananas arc now." These were the words of David G. Falr chlld. the agricultural explorer, who re cently returned from Persia, where he was rent to look up date culture In the interest of the United ites. Mr. Fairchild is one of tho first, and, I may say. the chief of his profession. Educated as a botanist, he worked for a time as such In the De partment of Agriculture, and then resigned to go to Buitcnzorg, Java, and study plants and fungus disease In the botanical garden there, the largest and-flnest garden of, tho world. The expenses of this trip were furnished by Mr. Harbour LaihroD of Chicago, at whose suggestion and under whose patronage Mr. Fairchild later on be gan to hunt the world oer for new plants lor the Unlttd States. PHIIiANTHHOPY IN SEEDS. Andrew Carnegie's philanthropy runs to libraries. Stanford's millions were swal lowed up in his great California Unlversity and John ltockefellcr's surplus a t.mafl part of It. I fear goes to the Baptist Church and his famous Chicago college. Barbour Lathrop. although a poor man in comparison with these three, has devoted his surplus to a pursuit which may result in greater value to the I'nitcd States than all the others. Born rich, his life beforo he met Mr. Fairchild had been largely de- .uicu iu iiiiveung up anu aown tne world for his own study and amusement. A typi cal American, with practical business sense, he Investigated the vegetation of other lands, and as he went conceived tho Idea that manv forelcn nlnnts rniohr h profitably grown in the United States. Ho had been traveling thirty years beforo ho caino to me conclusion to put tnis thought into action, and It was with this idea that he sent Mr. Fairchild to Buitenzorg, and later took him with him as a plant expert, and traveled from continent to con tinent, seeking new seeds and plants for Uncle Sam. All this was dono without cost to tho Government, save that the re sults were distributed through the Agricul tural Department. Almost at the same time Secretary Wil son became Interested in the subject. In deed, ho had taken it up about the time that Mr. Lathrop began his active Inves tigations, and since then the work of the two men has gone on side by side. The Secretary has established a bureau for tho introduction of valuable plants nud seeds, and ht- has to-day a number of agricultural explorers traveling over tho world at the expense of the department. At present Mr. Fairchild Is hero at W ashlngton In chargo of this bureau working directlv under tho Secretary, al though most of his work as an explorer has been under the ?oIo direction of Mr. Lathrop ami in connection with him. I nrat met Mr. Fairchild in 1KJ7, Just before Istarted out on n newspaper trip of 23. 009 miles, which was to cover tho South American Continent, nnd at his request I sent him corn and other seeds from about Lake Tltlcaca and other nirts of the Andes. I afterwards tramped over his track In Slam and Java, and I found him Just ahead of me In Sumatra. New Gui nea. Australia and tho Fijls. Slnco then he has explored South America, has pone up and down the coast of Africa, and late ly trf Arnhla and un the Persian Gulf to Bagdad, the land of dates and the "Ara bian Nights." DATES FOR EVERYONE. "Yes," said Mr. Fairchild. "ne will have fresh dates, and no one who has not tasted tho date fresh from the tree knows what that means. Dates aro of as many varieties as apples, and feme are so de licious that thev will form one of the fa vorite fruits of our tallies. We have in troduced date palms on the high, drv lands of the Southwest, and now know that they can bo as well crown in somo parts of Arizona and California as In the Desert of Sahara and Mesopotamia. In deed. President lloosevelt and members of his Cabinet have eaten dates thus grown In America, and we have men in tho West who are going into date raising as a business. The new Irrigation works which are being established will open up a large area of possible date country, and dates may In tho futuro be one of our most profitable fruit crops "How much will d"tes mv to the acre?" ..... ........ A. jMiic. wjiu inves tigated date culture in the Sahara, esti mates that 4,000 pounds can be annually produced" on an acre of land, and that after setting asldo a good amount for ex penses tho net profit from them will be $150 per acre. .As It Is now, we use only about 1S.O00.O0O pounds of dates a year; but If they were raised here and sold fresh tho consumption would be enormously Increased, and tho profits can hardly bo estimated. SEEDLESS DATE AND ORANGE. "Wo have Introduced a number of dif ferent .kinds of dates Into tho West," con tinued Mr. Fairchild. "and we are raising somo as delicious as any I have tasted In Persia. I have heard lately, however, of seedless date, and am trjlng to get suckers to plant In Arizona or in Califor nia. So far'I have not been able to trace It, but there Is no reason why it shduid not exist. No one knew of navel ornnires unUl an American woman, traveling along" me coast oi xsrazn, was given a seedless orange while her ship stopped at Bahla. She asked about It and was told that It Was cultivated by the people of thati State. When she came to Washington" she called at the Department of Agri culture and told Mr. Saunders about It.. The old gentleman was very polite, and although he evidently doubted the state ment, he sent down to Bahla, asking about this orange and for slips of the tree. Some came, and they were planted Ih tho department garden. They grew Into trees, and upon them were produced' the first navel oranges ever seen In tho United States. Slips from those trees were sent to California and Florida, and oiir enormous seedless orange crop of to day is the result. Not long ago a dele gation of California fruit growers visited Washington. They called at the depart ment garden, and one of them said: " 'Those navel orange trees have given more to the United States than the con of the Agricultural Department since Its beginning' NEW FRUITS FOR PORTO RICO. "I should think that such things might be grown In Porto Rico, Mr. Fairchild," saidl. "Not the date, for that requires a dry country." said Mr. Fairchild. "But the nnvpl nrnnen can undoubtedly be crown there. Porto Rico Is a virgin field for ' J&FlN3uWriDE:PFtL . PFEf? JL7MT. ' plant Introduction. He are now Mud"ig the tropical fruits to -pe what will grow there, and I think it is fmr to s.,i th it that island will some time he the tropical fruit garden of the United States It In not f.ir from New York, and the' shipping fa cilities will grow better and belter. One of the fruits which we are introducing in to Pnrto Rico is the mango We are scour ing the world for tho best varieties and are planting them in various parts of Porto Rico. I don't know that you realize that there Is as much difference in man goes as there is in peaches and apples. I have seen some in East Africa as large as a small cantaloupe, tinely flavored and de licious. Thero Is a mango with very thin seeds grown In the Philippines, and there aro other mangoes with different flavors in other parts of the tropics. A few years ago bananas were no more common in the United States than they arc now in Germany. Mangoes will some day be eaten all over this country. It is not true, as has been stated, that the fruit has so much Juice that the only place one can eat it U In the bathtub. "Another fruit which we aro setting out In Porto Rico is the mangosteon. which grows In the East Indies, and which is the delight of all traveler. We shall havo a largo quantity of trees planted and hope that tho arrangements will lie such that the fruit can be exported to the American cities. I have kept mangostcens three weeks on a steamer, nnd in cold storage chambers they could bo preserved fresh for a month. It Is only about four days from San Juan to New York, and there is no reason why the fruit could not be Bhlpped from one pince to the other. SALTED ALMONDS. "Are we doing anything In nut culture?" "Yes," said Mr. Fairchild. "I spent some timo a vear or so n;o looking for almonds that mfght bo successfully grown in Cal ifornia and similar regions. I found that the Jordan almond was the best variety for tho salted or burnt almonds which aro served on our dinner tables. e arM now nnmrilnp n. million and one-half dol lars annually for such almonds, and the demand Is rapidly Increasing. This Jor dan almond grows in the mountainous regions of Southeastern Spain. I visited that country and brought back a great lot of scions from bearing trees. These were sent by the Agricultural Department to California and used to bud and graft thou sands of young trees there. Some of tho trees are already producing, and tha prob ability is that we shall grow all we need. TV.cn Tirilnn nlmnnd. Ii.IVi. lllird ShdlS. The women nnd children of tho Spanish mountain villages crack nuts and take out the kernels for shlpWnt. When they are thoroughly introcued hero cracking ma chines will do this work. "Another nut which we arc introducing, said Mr. Fairchild. "Is the cashew- nut. which grows in different parts of Africa and elsewhere, it Is served roasted and will some day be far more liked than, tho peanut Is now. I think the cashew tree can be grown In Porto Rico. BAMBOO TREES FOR UNCLE SAM. "One of the most important projects in this line," continued Mr. Fairchild, "is tho Introduction of the Japanese bamboo for the Gulf States, Florida and Southern Tfjcas. Wo have imported thousands of bamboos and have placed them In tho hands of a few selected men, who, it is thought, will bo capable ot handling them. Wc hopo that comnvrclal groves of bam lioo timber can bo grown throughout the South, and they will lie as profitable there ns they are in Japan." "Give me borne idea of tho bamboos of Japan and the money in them?" I asked. "It would take a book to tell the story,, said Mr. Fairchild. "There are many a rietles. used for all sorts of purposes. The bamboo, you know, 1s a giant grass, which grows not only in the tropics, but nlso in the upper regions of the Andes and Hima layas, which arc covered with deep snow in the winter. The plant is found almost everywhere In the Philippines, and the dif ferent varieties may be Introduced into Porto Rico nnd Hawaii. Some of the bam boos havo edible shoots, which look like giant asparagus sprouts and may be cooked and eatsn In the same way. They aro a delicious vegetable and will some day have a place In the American mar ket. Other bamboos are grown entirely for the timhor nnd for use in manufactur ing. I think the timber species can be grown along the Yazoo River In Missis sippi, and that they would be a very val uable crop." "Are bamboos cultivated?" I asked. "Yes. the Jnnaneso treat them with all tho caro ot other Held crops. They set them out In orchards or groves, taking a harvest of poles in August or later. Of some varieties there are 4.000 or 5.000 to the acre and more than a thou sand culms or stalks can be marketed from them every year. The plants are usually set out about twelve feet apart and the first stalks cut when the grove Is about four years old." "Give mo some Idea of the profits of bamboo raising." "They should be greater here than In Japan." said Mr. Fairchild. "and as far as I could learn the business pays very well there. Doctor Shiga of the Japanese Bu reau of Forestry told me that tho bamboo was one of the best crops of tho country, often yielding K0 gold per acre. Of this 20 per cent came firm the edible shoots. Another Japanese who raised bamboo tim ber told me he was annually making about $) per acre out of his land, nnd near Klota I heard of men who were making as much as $S0 per acre. Prices rise and fall from year to year. About five years ato some of tho planters who were rais ing groves of black bamboo were realizing J2W , per acre. They are now netting about $50. i"The bamboo," continued Mr. Fairchild, "is the most Indispensable of all trees In the far East. It is used for everything un der the sun. It forma the building material, the furniture wood, tha kitchen utensils, tho water pipes, and in some places the floors and rafters of the houses. It Is used to make ropes and mats, fans and um brellas. It largely takes the place of Iron and wire nnd of many other things. Here it is used chiefly for fishing poles, of which wo import millions every year. It would indeed be a valuable addition to our tim ber crop." JAPAN'S PAPER PLANT. The conversation here turned to the Jap anese paper plants which are now being brought to the United States. The Japa nese make the finest papers of the world. They have some which look like silk, so strong that a large sheet will snpport the weight of the average man. They have the finest of tissue papers, some of which are Imported by opticians for wiping lenses and glasses, and the dentists all over the country dry out tnp cavities In teeth preparatory to filling them with sold 'Tri FftT, ''"''' "J.. - with n it rr js pjpr made in J pan Mr Fuin'lmd htwd me simples of ome of thei- iijper-,. ,md, jmong ot!"r things what li 'iked I ke a li ntln r poitfolln, whii h would, Mirrpus'. enj-t at le.ist J." at any notion ston1 in th!- cuuiitrj. It was made of paper instead of leather, and I was told It had cost just IS rentei "Tho Japanese papers.' said Mr. Fair child, "come from different sources, but chiefly from the mitnimat.i p'ant. which covers the bill-dds nnd Is also grown be tween th rice fields throughout Central Japan. It is a perenni'il slirub with long, lance-shaped leaves and yellow- llhwers. Its b.irk has long, delicate libers, and it is se cured by cutting the plant and stripping off the bark, which is then macerated and made Into paper. This plant could be grown in the United States, and It might be harvested bv ma chinery The plants are grown fiim the tx'ed and afterwards et out and culti vated. They are cut off from year to year, other sprouts coming up for another crop. The Japanese make their napkins, um brcllns and lanterns out of such pnpr. It takes the place of glass In the walN of the people's houses, and as olUd paper serves as rubber blankets and rubber eoas. I see no reason why such plants should not be raised here and why, with our modern machinery, they might not form an Important part of our paper In dustry. I understand that from n0 to 2.0X) pounds of bark can be annually produced on one acre, and thit this when made :nto pulp Is worth in Japan from 15 to IS cents in gold per pound. This would m ike a profit. I should say. of $lu0 or upward per acre Copyright. 1904, by T. G Carpenter. BELL GIRL EMPLOYED IN HOTEL FOR WOMEN. - f.rat f nor Kind Make Her Appenr- mice at the Mnrtlia Washington. REPUBLIC FPECML. Now York, June 25. The first of the bell girls appearc." in the Hotel Martha Wash ington, Just as everybody said she would. If sho pleases tho patrons of the estab lishment the cry will be "Front, Miss!" and all cards will be taken to and fro by femlnlno attendants. Tho six bell boys In the place eyed her askance and wondered If her presence meant the knell of doom for them. It was the consensus of tho "bench" that they would hold their positions for a little while yet, although a more meek array of serv itors never before sat In a hotel corridor. Bell girl No. 1 walked lightly about the tesselated floor. "No. 1317." said she. In a voice which was tremulous and low, Nobody answered "No. 1317." she said, with more decision. "No. 1317. No. 1317." "Gracious, child," exclaimed an elderly woman, rising from n, seat near the news stand, "what's all this? You're calling the number of my room." "Wanted at the telephone, madame," was the reply. Bell girl No. 1 is short In stature. So are her skirts. Ilrr hair Is worn In a lingering braid down her back. She is a page at present. "It's an experiment so far," said Mr M. Caldwell, who recently came from a leading hotel to take charge of the Martha Washington, "and I don't see why It should not be practicable I bellee belt girls will give good servlco here."

Mr. Vlllanl, at a meeting of the Coloni zation Society of the Province of Queb'c three years ago presented plans for estab lishing the silk Industry in Canada. Be ing told that his scheme was Impossible, he said he would undertake to rove to the contrary ami that it could be made n commercial success. He sent samples of his first crop of silk tj the silk expert of the Italian Government, who Informed him that his silk was firmer, more dura ble and more consistent than .Chinese or Japaneso silk Last year Mr. Vlllanl showed 50005 plants. He planted a carload of mulberry treas last year nnd sowed three acres of land with mulberry sped that will yield l.OOO.ono plants. This he expects will enable him to establish a colony of 2,000 persons de voted to the silk Industry STRANGE BIRDS CROSS OCEAN. Interesting Fowls Build Xests in San Francisco Bay.
