REPRESENTED AT THE
NATIONAL CORN SHOW

their national exposition to the satis
faction of all concerned. The expens
es of two demonstrators from ea*:h
state were borne by the exposition.
North Dakota's exhibit was in
charge of O. W. Dynes, associate pro
fessor of agronomy at the state agri
cultural college, and W. R. Porter,
superintendent of the state demonstra
tion farms. The exhibit was one of the
most attractive on the grounds. Two
notable features of the exhibit inter
ested all visitors to the booth. One
was a twenty-four-foot suspension
bridge built entirely of North Dakota
corn bearing the inscription: "Corn
Bridge Leads to Future Prosperity for
North Dakota." A train of cars pulled
by a locomotive and loaded with corn
is featured running over the bridge
into a tunnel. This bridge was design
er! and built by John Fryberger of La
Moure for LaMourc county. The other
feature was the college seal, made of
North Dakota grains and designed by
Prof. E. S. Keene. The seal is Eix feet
square and has upon its face a repre
sentation of an anvil and a plow, sur
mounted by a rising sun. Across tho
face of the seal appears the motto:
"Practice With Science." The seal
typifies industrial education. Its strik
ing beauty attracted crowds to the
North Dakota booth.
The corn bridge and the corn exhibit
v, as a sufficient answer to the question
to the oft repeated exclamation of the
visitors: "Why, I didn't know North
Dakota grew any corn!" An exhiibt
of primitive types of corn as grown by
the Indians along the Missouri created
much interest. According to reliable
chronicles the Mandan Indians when
Lewi.s and Clark visited them over 100
years ago, jvere growing nine separate
varieties of corn and probably knew
more about com breeding than many
white farmers of today Prof. E. G.
Montgomery of Cornell university, one
of the foremost authorities on corn in
America, stated that it was one of the
most interesting collections he had
ever seen. Arranged in ten ear lots,
were samples of .the standard varieties
of the state. The importance of corn
to a proper system of agricultural
practice for North Dakota was proper
In 1912 North Dakota ranked first In
the production of wheat, first in flax,
third in barley and fourth in oats.
Cereal investigations have always
been an important line of work on the
North Dakota Experiment station and
some of the projects were illustrated
and explained. The product of thai
crossing of wheat types was shown in
mounted panels. The work of the
Dickinson substation on alfalfa breed
ing was also shown by means of dia
grams and charts.
A milling and baking test of North
Dakota wheats was a feature that was
of particular interest to the women
Bread made from the several standard
wheats displayed the comparison in
color, size and quality of loaf.
The valuable work accomplished by
the North Dakota demonstration
farms during the seven years they
have been in operation was thorough
ly diagrammed and explained by a
series of elaborate charts. The rela
tion of moisture and yields, cost of
production, total income and typical
rotations adapted to TTorth Dakota
conditions weTe displayed In such a
way that they could be easily inter
preted by the average person.
North Dakota's showing in the com
petitive classes of grasses, grains and
corpse and offers a prayer, which I
have heard called the greatest dra
matic speech of the past fifty years.
It is: „.
"Oh, Thou great Jehovah, God of
Abraham and Moses, with my face to
ward Mecca and a christian cross in
my hand, I ask if Thou are there.
Have mercy upon this poor boy who
comes to Thee after a life of faithful
service and love. 'For greater love*
hath no man than this, that he glveth
his life for a friend.'
"Of such noble spirit was Omar. Is
it any wonder that I am proud of the
opportunity to portray the character?
Ono thing that endears me especially
is that Omar, while loving his fellow
men beyond the pale, did not forget at
the same time to love the woman be
side him who had given everything for
him. Perhaps the sweetest moment in
the play is when he draws her to him
reverently and says, 'Smile, mother,
smile!' She looks up at him and
smiles. He murmurs, 'Ah! There is a
tomorrow, a happy tomorrow, for us,
and then another" and another unto the
"Omar is one of the gentlest and
sweetest, and one of-the-biggest men
of history. If I have helped to make)
him a little better understood I am

New York World: Not in a person
al sense, but as a general rule of con
duct is President Wilson's remark at
Philadelphia to be considered—"If you
think too much about being re-clected
it is very difficult to be worth re-elect
To the practical politician this will
sound like hereey. He has small re
spect for the president who fails to
strengthen himself with his party, to
keep his ear to the ground and to court
popular favor for himself and his po
Mr. Wilson has In mind something
wholly different. He holds the presi
dency to be an opportunity for service
to tho people, not an avenue to popu
larity and self-promotion. His ideal is
that of an official whose acts aro gov
erned not by ambition and lovo of ap
plause, but by loyalty to his principles
and steadfast devotion to the public
It is the conception of a man who is
master of himself, not the slave of the
ever fickle and capricious multitude
who studies not how to make votes,
but to make his ofRcc and the govern
ment worthy of confidence in the eyes
of the people.
