FARMERS AND EXPANSION.
Prank Hitchcock, chief of the sec
•tion of foreign markets, shows where
the termers benefit from commercial
expansion. He says:
Our sales of agricultural products
abroad during the past three years,
/1897-1899, were over $500,000,000
greater than in the preceding three
years, 1894-1896. This enormous gain
affords some id^a of the possibilities
that await a further development of
our agricultural export trade.
"Wider markets axe becoming
not only an advantage, but a, neces
sity. The products of our farms, like
the products of our factories, are in
creasing far beyond our own require
ments, and the surplus thus resulting
must be disposed of abroad, or we shall
have a constant glut in the home mar
5, ket. To avoid such a condition, we
are striving as never before to increase
our shipments to foreign countries. We
are searching the world over to find
new markets in order that the Ameri
can farmer may have a readier and
more profitable sale for 'his products.
"Our control of the markets of Cuba
\vand Puerto Rico will mean money in
the pockets of our farmers." Under
normal conditions .these two islands
purchase annually $50,000,000 worth of
agricultural produce, chiefly bread
stuffis and provisions, and practically
all of this trade shoula come to the
-. United States.
»f "In due time, the Philippines also
2 "will furnish an important market for
fthe produce of American farms. This
"'group of islands is particularly impart
,• ant^ because of Its relation to the valu
able commerce of the urient. All the
$ks'great commercial nations are expect
gj'antly looking toward China, with her
400,000,000 people, as the most promis
ing field for trade developmentthe
world now offers. The American farmer

wants a share of that trade. With a
commercial foothold in the Philip
pines, and a naval base there to insure
the protection of our commerce on the
Pacific, we shall be better able to reach
forth into the coveted markets of
China, Japan and the rest of eastern
The foreign trade of China, Japan
and the East Indies, even under the
present undeveloped conditions,
amounts to more than a billion dollars
a year, and of this vast commerce the
United. States enjoYs less than 10 per
cent. The possibilities of commercial,
expansion in this direction are simply
enormous. Our exporters are begin
ning more fully to recognize this fact
and to take advantage of it. The re
sults already obtained are significant.
Five years ago our exports to China
were valued at little more than $12,
000,000: last year luey* amounted to
nearly $40,000,000. Products of the
farm enter extensively into this rapidly
growing trade. The cotton planter^of
the south and the great wheat grower
of the north arid west are alike bene
fited. During the past year more than
100,000,000 pounds of American cotton
were shipped to Japan, as compared
with only 11,000,000 pounds five years
ago. Our 'exports of wheat flour to
Asia, in the meantime, have increased
from less than a million barrels to over
a million and a half. Many other ag
ricultural exports of the United States
are finding anew and profitable market
in the Orient, and all indications point
to the development there of an exten
sive trade in the products of agricul
The farmers' benefit froan commer
cial expansion, however, is not meas
ured merely by the larger scale of his
own products abroad. He profits
nearly as much from the growing ex
portation of manufactured wares. The
increased production of manufactures
in the United States to meet the re
quirements of a broadening export
trade naturally creates a larger home
demand for the products of the farm.
Every additional pound of cotton cloth
sent to Asia means a better market at
home for our raw cotton every addi
tional pair of shoes sold abroad means
abetter market here for hides of cattle
and so on through the long list of ag
ricultural products that form the ma
terials of manufacture. Then, too, all
the various industries that are ex
pended to meet a gipowing export de
mand require additional workmen, and
these workmen must be fed from the
produce of the farm. Thus the Amer
ican farmer finds that the policy of
commercial expansion results to his
great advantage in the home market
as well as in the foreign market.
In the consideration of the Aiacira^
bill in the United States senate, Mr.
Hansbrough. made an earnest appeal in
behalf of the Carter amendment He
held that an alien on the public domain
was a trespasser, and had no yight to
better treatment than accorded a tres
passer. "The American miners," he
declared," will not stand idly by and
see claims usurped by men who have
no right 1» them." Mr. Hansbrough
asserted his belief that there was a
monstrous conspiracy in the Opposi
tion to the amendment, to grab the
richest gold fields on the face of the
earth, and that the conspirators were
the millionaires and corporations that
had acquired the claims in the Cape
Nome district "So long as I. retain a
seat/in this senate" said he, "I gha.ii
expoep such a conspiracy, and direct
my efforts in favor of .the mn.n with
the pick and pan, the man in the
and gulches, the man behind the rocker
and not in such circumstances in favor
pf the American millionaire."
It is stated that former Congressman
M. N. Johnson wouiu like to be na
tional committeeman for the state, suc
ceeding Col. W. H. Robinson, and is
making plans to that end. A report
from Mayville says that letters received
there state this to be the fact and urge
that only tried friends of the former
congressman go to the state conven
tion, who will labor to that end.

A fat steer of 1,000 pounds weight is
said to have in It 500 pounds of water,
about 25 pounds of nitrogen, 18 pounds
of phosphoric acid and two pounds of
potash, says The American Cultivator.
To buy this nitrogen to return to the
soil would cost (bout $3.50, and the
phosphorle acid would cost about $1.
In selling such an animal raised on

$4.50 worth of fertilizing material is
taken. If bran, linseed meal or other
grain is bought to feed It, more than
this would probably be added to the
farm, and It, would be growing nktber,

bare been robbed of much more.
SOME PRAIRIE BREEZES.
A MATTER OF POLICY.
While honesty is policy
And truth a jewel too,
I'd hate to be the person
Wh6 told everything that's
Who instead of lying glibly:
"What a lovely child is that!"
Must in truth say to its mother:
"What an ugly little brat!"
Just suppose at some reception,
Entertainment should be slow,
And we fret and fume and fidget
As we often do you know.
Who would care to make his farewell
Truthfully to host and say:
"I've been simply bored to dteath, sir,
And I'm glad to get away!
Who would care to meet a lady
Whom he hadn't seen for years,
Greet .her pleasantly and tell her
How much older she appears.
How much nicer to lie glibly,
Lie sincerely, and to say
"Why it seems to me that you are
Growing younger every day!"
Be he saint or be he sinner,
Would a mortal man, forsctoth.
Ever dare go out to dinner
If he had to tell the truth.:
Say the roast was tough and tasteless,
Say the soup was seasoned wrong,
Say 'twas strange how weak the coffee
When the butter was so strong!
When the amateur canary
In the parlor warbles gay,
Like a buzz saw on a tantrum
Who would care to rise and say:
"Goodness me, but how you flatted,
My, how shrill your high notes are,
I have heard young calves that blatted
Better music—better far!"
If to truth you have a leaning,
It's not always wise to say
What you think on some occasions,
There's another, wiser way:
'Twixt your policy and conscience
Just effect a compromise,
And let what you think be truthful
If what you must tell be lies.
AN ARBOR DAY REGRET.
What does he who plants a tree?
He plants cool days and tender shade,
He plants the oak and hickory
From which stout switches may be
To wallop the small boy that he
May bless the man who plants tree.
What does he who plants a tree?
He plants the cool winds's tender tones,
And limbs the small boy may climb up
Fall out again and break his bones,
He plants a big, fat doctor's fee,
And that does he who plants a tree.
What does he who plants a tree?
He plants the trunk to grow and grow
To cordwood that the youth must chop
The while he would a fishing go.
He plants toil, sweat ^nd misery,
And that does he who plants a tree.
What does he who plants a tree?
He plants axe-handles, hoes and picks,
Plows, shovels, hammers and fence
And stumps to pull and cordwood
He just makes work for you and me
The fellow does who plants a tree.
