out to me.
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 ,

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 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
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
With the poultryman and the con?
sumer directly Interested In this com
' petition and Its results, the poultry

known as the leaf tobacco exchange.
For many years the building has been
occupied as offices by various tobacco
dealers, brokers, etc. Mr. WallerBteln
last week sold It to a man or com?
pany or firm, whose purpose It Is to
establish there on lmmenso cofteo
roasting- shop, and Install a whole lot
of machinery for the business. The
namo of tho buyer (the coffee roaster)
is withheld by Mr. Wallcrsteln, and
so also Is tho price ho paid for tho
property, but the brood smile which
adorned Wallersteln's entire face when
he let ou( "the few facts he did let out,
after sovere pumping, indicated that
he got a lively little profit on his
deal, and. figured hy the smile and by
a side knowledge of the former price.
It is safe to say that tho coffoe roaster,
whoever he may be, paid about 130,
000 for tho property, and that wasn't
too much for It.
The Lovely Suburb*.
All of the agents who handle subur?

the recent purchasers tlTere may be
mentioned E. W. Farley, of the Amer
