It Is Interesting to note that th? Pennsylvania gentlemen,who were ar? chitects and civil engineers themselves became interested In those water pow? ers when they were in Hanover on a hunting expedition, and not there with u view of Investing money In Virginia. And so It turns out that those vnlu ! able water powers and ample lands, foi j factory sites and for homes for factory I operatives are available, and It Is up to the people who once wanted them to whet their blades und try again. 1 renew my suggestion of July 16th that the Industrial Department of the C. & O. Road may f.nd here an opening to do some of tho good kind of work it has been doing all nlonp Its line, good work that has located Industries that , became big freight payers to the road, t F. S. W. DEIS 10 CONTEST ON MANY NESTS (Continued From First Pnge.) I of keeping accounts will form the val [ uable data on the contest, to be pub- ; llshed In a bulletin by tho Storrs Ag- \ I rlcultural Experiment Ctatlon at the | close of the competition. The value of t Iiis bulletin and published accounts of results and observations will make the publication n veritable t*xt-book for the poultryman. Some of the questions which these exhaustive and authenticated records will nnswer for the poultryman are: If all other conditions are equal, can nn Increased egg yield be produced by any method of feeding without In? creasing tho cost of production be? yond the limit of economy? The an? swer to this question alone will be worth the entire effort being made to bring about this competition. Which breed or variety will lay the I greatest number of eggs? Will the highest market value be reached with the etrgs produced? Will full sisters lay equally? Will different breeds and varieties lay tho same percentage of eggs In the same season? Which breed or variety produces the heaviest egg? There are other questlonB which this competition will answer. The poultry man of the futur3 who pos? sesses the knowledge which these an? swers and the results this competi? tion will provide will be far better equipped than the poultryman who works without this knowledge. The determination of this compe? tition will govern some of the prac? tices for breeding for egg produc- I tlon. and the operators of "egg farms" I will >,e able to accomplish some of the ; heretofore apparent Impossibilities in ' the management of layers. It Is the effort to contribute to thi3 poultry knowledge of the world the' j Is Interesting breeders all over tlve world in the competition. Poultry i men throughout the country have . urged upon the American Poultry As i soclailoh, the poultry journals and sev I eral State organizations, the advlsa i blllty and necessity for some method ' of improving the natural functions of the lu-n. They see In the competition which the newspaper has Inaugurated a stop toward the solution of this | problem. Problem to Be Solved. In its public aspect, the competition Is winning Interest from the fact that every economic problem, even if only partly solved, adds something to hu? man welfare. The cheapening of the cost of production, or Increased pro? duction without additional cost, in so short a period as one year, will have its economic effect, and an effort that may be calculated In figures and In money. For poultry production, as a faotor In reducing tho cost of living-, has assumed a national Importance. The consumption of meat in the United States has decreased over 50 per cent. In the last twenty years. Some of the Western States, on the other hand, formerly engaged In the production of beef cattle, havo Increased their poul i try products as much as 194 per cent. ! In ten years. These two observations may bo related by cause and effect: at any rate, the production of poultry has increased, so much so that Sec? retary of Agriculture James Wilson j describes its growth as so rapid that "ordinary arithmetic falls to follow It." With the poultryman and the con? sumer directly Interested In this com ' petition and Its results, the poultry ' Journals and doily newspapers will follow the records and keep tho world informed ns to what the various pens, breeds and vnrletles entered are do? ing nt Storrs. I'ouitrymen will recognize In the personnel of the advisory board a i guarantee that tho competition will he conducted Impartially and with scien? tific accuracy. The members are: ? Professor F. II.
