Secretary Wilson, flrobably reatest'.student of agricultural The science of agriculture instead of being a chance on the pleasure of the elements as it once was, is now almost as exact as that of the mechan ic. The farmer's first business is to know what his land is best adapted for. and to select his crops best suit ed to it, and to treat it according to its needs. The agents of the department are hunting the world for the crops best adapted to the different parts of a wide expanse of territory, so that even now there^are arid tracts in the great southwest once thought capable of producing only rattlesnakes and liz zards, where bountiful crops reward the tiller's hand. The richest harvest now ripen in what only a few years ago was ac counted a part of the great American desert. The varieties of wheat and corn that require more heat 'and moisture, for example, are selected for locali ties affording abundance of both. Thosfe which' are able to withstand much cold and mature in a short sea son have been selected for the fertile regions of the northwest. This seed selection carried out is developing a class of plants for every portion of the country that are cap able of developing under normal con ditions in ^he climate and soil con ditions in which they are placed. These things will not prevent drouths. Neither will they avoid a flood in the Red river But they will make agriculture as certain as any other avocation, and will largely elim inate pie element of chance. MERRIFIELD'S INFLUENCE. The gift of thirty thousand dollars •to the state university by Andrew Car aegie to he used in establishing a .library is of far more importance to khat institution and through it to the estate at large than would appear from a casual study of (he matter. The university occupies a strong position in the list of institutions of its character, though it' is among the youngest. Congress recognized its Importance when the state was created and gave liberally of the public domain for its endowment. It hps stamped its character upon the people of the state.

APRIL 10. 1B06 •IS .60 1.50 through the donation of the ex-iron master. It is worth while to pause for a mo ment to ascertain the reason for the, unparalleled success that has marked the history of the state university. During the last decade the present head of the institution has directed its affairs. He has been surrounded by the ablest men in the several depart ments that could be found. No chair has been unworthily filled. But as an executive power. Presi dent Merrifield has been a leader even among leaders. It is well known that Mr. Carnesle is willing and even anxious to dis tribute his vast millions among de serving applicants and that this dis tribution has been largely in the form of libraries. But at the same time it is known that these donations are not made without due consideration, and only upon strongly presented cases. If it were otherwise, the Carnegie fortune, vast as it is, would soon be dissipated to the four winds of the oanh. One of the conditions of these dona tions is that the recipients shall pro vide a means of perpetuating the ben efits of the gift. In the ca^p of the university there is practically no conditions. Mr. Car negie recognized in President Merri field a man of strong character and lasting influence, and it was upon these that the gift was based. N'or will the donor be disappointed. The impress of the present executive will last long-after the snows of age have silvered the hair of those who are now his pupils. The principles which he has lived into the university -will remain as its unwritten law when its walls no longer echo to the voice of those who knew him. His influence upon the lives and characters of the students will be a power that will de termine the course of the people to wards the institution with which he was associated. It was such considerations as these that secured the money to make avail able a library that is iir keeping with the university. It is a high compli ment to the ability and the character of a deserving man, THE WAYS OF THE DEMOCRACY. The Evening Times was prepared from the day of its first issue for the ti%atment it was accorded by the em inent democratic orators who spoke at the Duis celebration the night of the election. We knew that the'establishment in. this city of a genuine republican paper —something that Grand Forks has not had for many years—would arouse the hostility of every democrat here and for miles about. We knew that it would stir the truc ulent blood of those—few in^number, we are glad to say—who have been content to fatten at the republican crib, ever ready then as they are now to drive their poisoned daggers into the back of the party at the first op portunity. We knew that the Evening Times would be sneered at, condemned and maligned by all of these. We are not disappointed. On the contrary, we are serenely happy in the thought that the first outpouring of wrath has taken place. We had not ventured to hope for so early a demonstration, although its coming was as certain'as it is that democratic politicians like the smell of blood. As the Evening Times grows apace and continues to advocate re publican principles, there will be more of the same kind: there will be further exhibitions of the ways of democracy, and ere long republicans will begin to see the meaning of it. The republican party Isn't perfect. It has its faults, but we think it has improved and we know that it has performed a great work ig the world. The democratic party has not im proved. It is the same yesterday, to day and tomorrow. THE HOSE OF THE RENTER. There'is little need of a man rent ing land In this' state. The average fanner with sufficient stock and ma •chinefy to operate a farm on the rental plan is able to purchase a farm of his own in the newer portions of the state and pay for it out of the money he would otherwise pay as rent In all the western portion of the state land can be purchased at a fair price on what is terped the crop pay ment plan. This usually means a small cash payment, and then the value of one-half the crop raised'' an- nually until the balance is paid. The renter will not be able to do much better than this on a rental con tract, and after several years will be just where he began. But If the money paid in had been applied on the pur chase of the land he would hare had a considerable amount paid on the purchase price. The man who has been renting in the older states and who has been pay ing tribute to the land owners will be surprised to learn that these things are possible in this state. He has probably been renting for years and at the end of the year has been just about able to make his looks balance.' Me has his stock and machinery and probably a few hundred dollars in the bank. He can purchase in this state a farm on the plan outlined for probably fif teen dollars per acre, with three hun dred dollars cash. On an average quarter with proper cultivation and a fair season the yield should not be less than one thousand dollars. Half of this should pay the expenses of the crop except the labor of the farmer1 himself, and pay the living expenses of his family. This would enable him to pay for his farm in three years. There have been instances where one crop paid the price of the farm, but. if it even required five years to do so, it would be a profitable investment. No other state can offer such in ducements to the industrious man with small capital. It is only possible here because of the great discrepency between the selling price and the yielding value of land. In this connection it is worthy of note that land which sells for twenty and thirty dollars per acre in the open market will produce a crop that is worth ten to fifteen dollars per acre. Not all parts of the state will do this of course, but in many counties there is plenty of land of this kind on the market. ASSISTANT BOSS SORLEY. We had almost overlooked the fact, but was not the Honorable John Sor ley once a member of the legislature? and didn't that legislature elect a dem ocratic United States senator, whose vote gave us the Wilson-Gorman bill and a subsequent train of industrial calamities that cost this country bil lions of dollars? And how did the Honorable John Sorley vote in that senatorial fight? He voted for Roach. And now the Honorable John Sorley, who lives in the Seventh legislative district, tells the republicans of the Sixth district what they must do. Municipal Boss Winship, it would seem, is to have a Sixth district boss in the person of Honorable John Sor ley. Republicans should make a note of these things. ApriL Ho, the wonder of it! Is the winter swept away? Blown before the balsam breath from out the south today? Jewel-like, a blue bird gleams in circles far and high Under all the wonder of the sapphire shining sky Down and down and down to us tlie lilting bird notes fall— Mo. the wonder of it when we hear the April call! In a magic moment comes the making of the brook. And it runs to rouse ,the roots in meadow land and nook, Lingers laughingly awhile amid the tangled vine That has loosed its hold upoivthe bows it used to twine Hurries on and fluTries on.and echoes all along In the mystic measures of the murmur ed April song. Earth and sky has heard it it has swept across the night Touching all the little stars with new and gladder light, Softening the depths of space until in them appear All the subtle glories of the morning of the year Dead and dull artd dark before, and dis mal overmuch, Now the sky of night is answering to April's touch. Ho, the marvel of it! April's feet upon the hills Find the olden pathway to the valleys and the rills Now the sunshine shimmers in the dis tance of the day And the wintry veil of mist is blown and rent away. Morning songs are singing in the happy hearts of all— Ho, the music of it when we hear the April call! —W. D. Nesbit. AMUSEMENTS The Sleeping Beauty and the Beast. Possibly without any exception, the big spectacular Drury Lane and Broadway theater production of "The Sleeping Beauty and the Beast," which will play at the Metropolitan next Saturday, April 14, is the rriost merit orious attraction before the public thft season, and on looking into the many reasons why, the average play goer is soon convinced. The entire outfit from stage to fly. gallery was alone, it ran successfully for thirty continuous weeks, the receipts reach ing upwards of half a million. Even then it would have continued an en-' tire year, had not the house man agers been compelled to end the en gagement, owing to previous bookings of other attractions which they were unable to cancel. The management this season has decided to make a tour of the states, playing 'the larger and medium sized cities, affording an op portunity to outsiders to witness a real, big, London and New York suc cess. That they have framed up one of the strongest entertainments ever put together for a road company will be conceded when it is known that the entire New .York production is carried in everyv detail by this com pany. Although announced as a pan tomime^ "The Sleeping Beauty and the Beast" is iff Reality a gigantic musical extravaganza, displaying magnificent scenery, beautiful cos tumes, elaborate mechanical effects and an army of people.

Chicago, April 10.—Mrs. Maud A. King, widow of the late James C. King, a wealthy board of trade operator who died in 1901, has been given $1,000,000 of the King estate by a decision hand ed down in the circuit court by Judge Walker. King's estate at the time of his death amounted to $3,600,000, and $100,000 was given to Mrs. King under an ante nuptial agreement. Mrs. King insti tuted suit for one-half of the total estate, which, with the exception of the $100,000 given to her, was de vised for the endowment of a home for old men. Under the decision just made, $900,000 is taken from the fund for the home and given to Mrs. King.

GENERAL BOOTH'S BIRTHDAY. Anaoclated Praa Cable to The Evening: Time*. London, April 10.—From every country of. the civilized world mess ages conveying congratulations and good wishes poured in today upon General Booth, founder and head of the Salvation .Army, on the occasion of his seventy-seventh birthday. Not withstanding the fact that in the early part of his career General Booth wis the butt of ridicule and insult and not infrequently was pelted with rub bish when he appeared in the street, no Englishman has been more sig nally honored than has the head of the Salvation Army in late years. He has been patronized by King Edward, received in audience by the rulers of many countries, and on his return from Palestine last year he was granted the freedom of the city of London "in recognition of his great work for the moral and social eleva tion of the people," an honor which the city of London had been accus tomed 4to bestow onlfe-on members of royal families, military and naval heroes or statesmen of marked pre eminence.

STORIES OF THE STREET. Persistency is one of the qualifica tions of a certain Grand Forks young man who has been paying attention to a young lady who lives on Belmont avenue. He has made it a habit to call upon the young lady regularly three times a week and stay until after all the other members of the family have retired for the night—all this in spite of the chilly receptions he has received several times of late. He was the recipient of a particu larly frosty Jolt an evening or two ago, but it hasn't dampened his'ardor in the least and he still considers him self upon the young lady's calling list It was nearly midnight. The light burnedi low and, the lore-4orn swain spoke fiercely. "I cannot stand your indifference^" he Said.

"Maybe you have, maybb you have," the head of the house conceded, "but I'll bet you never saw anything In the language more paradoxical than this." He spread open the sporting-. page of a Chicago, daily. "Look he said, "here's the' story of a prize fighter being knocked out by another. The headlines announce that he was!' 'bested.'
