S^IE^TIFIC AGRICULTURE.
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.

•to the state university by Andrew Car

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. It has sent

it means that man has so studied these

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.

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

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

the city of London had been accus

royal families, military and naval
