Agricultural Department
Some time has elapsed since 1 have
been able to give our readers a description
of some of the country where my duties
have led me. so I will now try and inter
est the reader for awhile with a descrip
tion of entirely a different section from
former fields, i have from time to
time had much lo gay of the great west
and of its great possibilities. But now I
want to have something to say of the
great east, for this is a great country and
there is much of great interest in all parts
of this the greatest country in the world—
made so first by our great natural ad
vantages and next by the education and
enterprise of our American people.
it was my pleasure to receive an invi
tation to attend as a guest the seventh
annual convention of the Association of
American Agricultural Colleges and Ex
periment Stations, held In the city of
\\ ashington. L). C., November 17 to 19.
rI hrough or by the courtesies of the
Southern railway T was permitted' to take
my wife with me, and on reaching Wash
ing. through the courtesy of the great
Pennsylvania railroad, we had the pleas
ure of visiting Baltimore. Philadelphia,
New York and many intermediate places
of historic interest. We managed our
trip so that we were able to see all the
country between Birmingham and New
York in the day, so that J might sec and
study the general conditions and especial
ly the agricultural and horticultural con
ditions of the country.
To start out I must confess that T was
sadly disappointed in these conditions as
they presented themselves to me all along i
the route, and especially so on as far as
Philadelphia. I was surprised to see the
country so hare—not a winter pasture
anywhere to he seen, except now and
then a small plot of some wheat or rve.
Tills whole section of country needs the
primary missionary educational work
fully much or more than the west.
From what f had been reading I had con
cluded that much of this educational
work had been done In Virginia and the
Carolinns. also Georgia, but in this I was
disappointed. True that these states have
made wonderful improvements in many
respeetB. but this Improvement has been
more along the lines of manufacture
than along the lines of improved agricul
ture. The groat agricultural and horti
cultural advancements that we read of
in the states named may prevail in some i
sections of the states, but they arc no
where to be seen along the lines of the
roads thut we traveled.
Now let me say right here that I do
not wish to he understood as a critic, but
I want to give the plain facts as I see
them, hoping to awaken and stir up a bet
ter Interest along this line of Improve
ments. for there certainly is great room
for improvement. There are few sec
tions where people canfiot do better titan
what they are now doing. I was surprised
to see so much waste land, and to see so
F tie effort at improving and building up
the lands. We saw hundreds of pretty
and prosperous factories all along the
line. Many of these were surrounded by
beautiful cot ages, occupied by people
who work in the mills, and these people j
all seemed to be making a good living and I
seemed to be contented.
ir me agricultural and horticultural In
terests of the country was only kept up
with that of these factories the country
surely would he one of much prosperity,
for there is always at hand a ready mar
ket for everything that is produced on
the farm. True these people in many see
tions of the states named have a hard
soil to contend with, and It seems at first
sight that it would he a hard matter to
get a living from such a soli or soils, yet
we find occasionally a man who Is fur
nishing object lessons of what energy and
education will accomplish on even these
seemingly worthless worn-out soils. In
this primary educational work along ag
ricultural and horticultural lines the first
and most Important lesson for the farmer
to learn Is the rare of his soil. As the
population of man Increases in or on the
earth the greater will he the demands
upon the soil for his support. From the
soil must come directly or indirectly the
wealth of our country.
only are our home people depend
ent upon the productiveness of our soils,
hut other countries are looking to us for
much of their food supplies. More than
<10 per cent of our last year’s exports
came from tli*-* American farms.
Take Care of the Lands.
This being true how important it Is to
take care of and huild up our lauds and
quit wearing out and turning out so much
of our land. The general government has
taken this matter in hand and is trying to
show the farmers the importance of a
well regulated system of rotation of crops.
A plot of land has been secured at St.
Louis, near the exposition, where tlie gov
ernment will prepare and give object les
sons along this line of rotation of crops,
and every farmer who visits the great St.
Louis exhibition should visit this plot and
get tlie benefits of its teachings. I want
to say light here that in lion. James
Wilson, secretary of agriculture. the
south lias the best friend and the ablest
educator along these lines that she has
ever had.
When Secretary Wilson visits the south
ern farmers he mixes and mingles witn
them and takes si great Interest In sill
our welfare. He Is always looking out
to see what he can do for us, and it
would he to^the Interest of all our south- |
orii farmers to keep in close touch with
Secretary Wilson and heed his able and ;
timely advise along the improved methods
of farming. It was my pleasure to have
visited the secretary while Jn Washing
ton and to have quite a talk with him
regarding conditions in the south. I coul.l
readily see by his questions how much ho
was interested in our welfare. He paid
me a high compliment on the work that
1 am trying to do, and said to me that he
wanted me to feel free to call upon him
at all times when he could bo of any
service to me or to our people. Secretary
Wilson has an able set of educators to
assist him in this great work, and the
government expenditures are greater than
over before for tlie encouragement of this
work. Farmers from all parts of the
country should send for the bulletins Is
sued by the government, all of which are
free for the asking. Only write your
name and address on a postal card and
address it to Secretary Wilson. Washing
ton. I). C. Farmers all over the country
are pretty much alike In many respects.
Another very important matter is that
farmers lack, first, confidence in their
country, and next, confidence in them
If they only had this confidence and
hack it up by industry and economy we
would soon see a very different country.
In our great convention at Washington
we had about 200 representative men, ag
riculturists of the country. Many im
portant subjects were discussed and many
new ideas brought out. Many of these
subjects, of course, are too high advanced
for the common farmer, yet they are of
vital Importance and should be taught.
The science of plant and animal breeding
may be beyond tin* thought of the com
mon farmers, yet it is of great importance
to know ns much as possible of these
things. While these are important, yet in
the rural districts the primary, the a b c,
of agriculture must be taught. We must
have the primary teachers, the Davie
Crockett# and Daniel Boones, to pave out.
blase out the way. and prepare the people
for these higher questions.
While In Washington I also had the
pleasure of meeting Prof. John Hamilton,
who has been employed by the depart
ment of agriculture to take charge of
this primary farmers’ Institute work. Mr.
Hamilton said to me that he had been
thinking the matter over seriously and
that he had arrived at the conclusion that
the leading trunk lines of railroads would
have to take up this primary work and
send out competent men along their lines
to educate their people, and that he had
concluded to first take tills matter up
with the leading railroads. I handed him
ray card and said to him our line, the
Frisco Railroad company, have taken an
advanced step in this work, and have had
me in the Held since the first of January
doing this lecture work. Mr. Hamilton
complimented me very highly, gave me
his card and requested that I write him
often and freely; said he wanted to keep
in close touch with me and with the work
I was doing; said further that he would
hold us up as an example for others to
profit by.
Now the general government, the state
colleges and experiment stations, the lo
cal newspapers, the railroads, one and
all. are engaged hand in hand in this
great work of development, and the ques
tion is, will the fanners form themselves
into farmers' institutes and help in this
great movement for the general good of
the whole country.
Educational Work.
That there is great need for this educa
tional work all over our country no think
ing mind can question. Much has been
accomplished and much more Is yet need
ed to be done, and the groat problem now
is how to reach the masses of the people
and how to get them interested.
The people need object lessons, as these
object lessons teach faster than words,
but it takes so much talk to get these ob
ject lessons of what our soli and country
is capable of doing started. We arc pro
gressing in this matter, however, and to
day we have men all through the south
furnishing these object lessons. I can
point to farmers who have cieared $100 per
acre on sweet potatoes this season; to
fhers who are making money on eante
loupes. fruits and vegetables. I can show
one man In South Carolina who cleared
from fifty acres of canteloupes the past
summer $f*i<)0. This man is now using this
money buying and selling horses and
mules F came down with him a few
weeks ago from St. Louis, where he had
just bought several ears of fine mules. I
can show men who have cleared over $300
per acre on apples. Associations whose
net returns on canteloupes. potatoes, to
matoes and other truck crops are common
all over the south.
These furnish object lessons, but these
crops are not to be grown on lands that
are not cared for and kept up. W bile
such results are obtained in many sec
tions of the south, yet T was disappointed
in seeing so few of such results on our
fecent trip to Washington. But that the
country—much of it through which we
passed—is fully capable of such results if
properly managed, there is no doubt. Now
in thylng to persuade our farmers to take
in trying to persuade our farmers to take
lessohs to teach is the Importance of
keeping something green growing on the
land the entire year. The soil needs pro
tection in the summer against the hot
summer suns and in the winter against
our heavy washing rains. Now. as stated,
nearly all the country from hero to Phil
adelphia is baked and bare, left for the
winter rains to beat and wash away.
I will continue a description of this trip,
with practical suggestion, next week.
Paderewski's Hard Luck.
From London Men and Women.
Literary and musical celebrities are
often unfortunate in their investments,
and M. Paderewski, according to a re
port. has encountered the fate of -Mark
Twain and practically lost his savings,
amounting to JC100.000, which lie had in
vested on the advice of a Polish friend.
Instead of retiring from the platform,
as he had Intended, he Is obliged, it is
said, to start his recital work again.
There Is a grim pathos, in the light of
his misfortune, in a remark he once made
to his agent, who had sent him In his
earlier days a kind letter from Mme. Mod
Jeska testifying to Ills brilliant qualities:
"Whenever business Is slack you can use
this on me. If you hear that Mme. Mod
jeska is not doing well, change the gen
der and say I said il about her. It ought
to lie good for either of us In nil emer
gency." The savings of ten years gone
at a blow is not such an evil fortune
as overtook Scott, who was plunged in
debt and wrote hlmaelf literally to death
lo pay off ills creditors, and II comes to
M. Paderewski at a much younger age
than was Mark Twain when he learned
that his publishing firm had collapsed,

The Country Pastor.
From the Haptlst Argus.
MV have a fast growing respect for the
country pastor as a preacher. It is more
Inspiring to preach to country people than
to townsmen. The most inspiring ad
dresses that we have heard during I he
past summer have not been by the metro
politan ministers, hut by men from the
country and small towns. It is evident
(he rural brethren are better supported,
mure studious in their habits and more
influential with their churches than ever
before. It is perfectly glorious to he a
first-class country pastor.

""“A Second Boer War.”
From the* New York Tribune.
Any war talk is indiscreet. Talk of a
“second Boer war” is worse than Indis
creet; flor in the most regrettable .con
tingency of hostilities -between this coun
try and Colombia—which we do not for a
moment believe wllj occur—there would
be no conditions corresponding to those
of the Boer war. No sane man contem
plates an American invasion and conquest
of Colombia. To land an army at Buena
ventura or Cartagena and march it up to
Bogota would doubtless be a formidable
undertaking—far more so. wre may con
cede. than the marching of an army from
Cape Town to Pretoria. But Americans
are not thinking of that, any more than
of marching an army to Timbuktu, and
even the remote possibility of a declara
tion of war by Colombia, if it were real
ized. would not an tail upon them such an
undertaking. That remark of General
Reyes was entirely away from the point,
and it is to be noticed only to be re
