iWEDN KSLA EVENING, FEB. 2.
FACTS VERSUS OPINIONS.
'v An eastern exchange referred to
the fact that Gilbert K. Chesterton, a
noted English writer who is lectur
ing in this country, said in his first
lecture that he had come seriously to
the conclusion that the most pro
found criticism of the education and
culture of the present time was to be
found in an utterance which he at
tributed to Artemus Ward, but which
if we are not mistaken belongs to
Josh Billings: "It ain't so much peo
ple's Ignorance ^hat does the barm as
their knowing so darned much that
ain't so."
This is suggestive oC a v»st amount
of writing and -talking just now cur
rent-about business conditions, and
particularly about the manipulation
of markets against the farmers. The
billowing paragraph is taketi from a
recent 'article in a weekly publication
of high class and large circulation:
""The markets are crowded with
crops at one season and are almost
empty oi them at all others. This
means that when the farmer is har
vesting his year's return, his products
bring him in the least. They are
bought up by speculators when they
are cheap and wiien the farmer must
sell in order to get money to pay his
and then the dealers manipulate
the amount they will let loose on the
market until harvest time comes
again, and at prices to meet their
own speculative and immoral wishes."
The publication quoting the above
then appends tiie ligures on grain
prices supplied by George H. Jonn
s-ton, of Wales, N. D., and recently
published in The HeraJd, which fig
ures upset these speculations entirely.
Yhe' recommendation is made That
these figures bo studied to the end
.Hit a octter understanding oi the
situation may be reachcd. It is un
io: tai:utoly true that the people who
ii.-t lAuig the most shouting are im
,,ivvUius to iacts or figures. They
fciive reached certain conclusions and
certain theories. If tne tacts
ui-. uoi in accord with these theories,
facts tuygt be wrong.
FKEE SEEDS.
Tat annual free seed humbug is

us attain. The department of
:tKLiculture asked for an appropria
tion of 523!*,000 for a repetition of
Lhis hoary fake. The appropriations
nuiiiiiUeo refused to niak" any pro
vision whatever lor seedK. But the
/iLa c- in a tit of generosity, not only
provided for as large an appropria
*-on as the department asked, but
increased it 50 per cent, making the
appropriation $|60,000. L'nless the
•senate cuts out this appropriation it
will stand, and the taxpayers of the
country will pay for the distribution
of a lot of seeds which might just
as well be jumped in the ocean and
this at a tfme when the whole coun
try is clamoring for efficiency and
economy in the management of the
government
.The usefulness of the free seed dis
tribution vanished a generation ago.
At its inception the practice was well
intended, and the method employed
was probably as good as any that
could be used under the circum
stances then existing. The purpose
was not to make donations to any
one, but to bring about a wide dis
tribution of samples of new and rare
plants for experimental purposes.
Recipients of such -seeds and plants
atis were distributed were expected to
t&t them carefully and to report the
results. But however good the intent,
the results were negligible. Few re
"ports were ever sent in, and such as
were sent were of little value because
there were no proper means for as
certaining the conditions under which
tho experiments were made.
With the establishment of agri
cjaltural colleges and the development
of experiment station work, whatever
.Reason ever exists for thp general seed
distribution disappeared.. For a quar
tr*©f a century the only use that has
.lj£en made of the seed appropriation
•ljas been to' enable congressmen to
fftake little gratuities to their con
tinents at the expense of the gov
ftment. Many people to whom
-1 steeds aie sent have no upe for seeds
"of any kind, and regular growers will
-*r not bother with them because of the
/Uncertainty which exists as to variety
jl^id quality and the ease with which
jfcrfectly reliable seeds can be pur-
Bd in the ordinary way.

V.:
the members of the University foroi
have ever done to aid In bringing
about conditions which will njake It
possible for the farmers of the state
to pay higher salaries. The article
closes with the injunction to the mem
bers of the University staff to get
I 7.00 busy and help to remedy the condi
I 3.76 tions, so that their efforts may receive
due recognition.
In other words, let the professors
all join the Nonpartisan- League and
show their faith by their works by
getting behind the,. Socialist program
and helping to put it over. Then,
having shown that their hearts are in
the right place they may expect to be
rewarded according to their deserts.
Of course there is nothing new in
this idea. There has been constant
effort to make politcal agencies of
all the educational institutions in the
state, The fact that these institutions
were established for' the purpose of
carrying on the' work of education In
its various departments has cut no
figure. Men have been proposed for,
and in many cases appointed to edu
cational positions for the sole reason
that they were expected to prove use
ful politicians. In spite of the rebuke
that has been given to this policy the
Fargo paper cannot get the notion out
of its system.
We take it that the people of1 the
state expect a professor of geology
to teach geology, and a professor of
English to teacl) English. If compe
tent people are to fill these positions
they must be remunerated on a basis
that will compare fairly with the
needs of the situation and the customs
of other communities. If a different
policy is followed out institutions will
deteriorate, and educational positions
will be filled with third rate men who
may be quite willing to make up for
their educational deficiencies by po
litical activity.
BERGDOblj
The unfortunate thing about the
whole Bergdoll business is that Berg
doll ever got away. This young man,
reared in wealth and luxury, played
the part of a slacker and a coward
during the war. Subjected, as other
men of his age were, to the draft reg'.
ulations, he failed to respond, and
when search was made for him he se.
creted himself. Finally discovered
and placed under arrest, he was, held
for many months while his mother,
using her wealth to employ the best
legal talent available, took advantage
of every technicality in the law to ob
tain his freedom. The case was fjr).
aliy brought to trial, and the man'was
convicted before a proper court and
sentenced to imprisonment.
The conditions surrounding his es
men some of whom died in the per
formance of their task, and others are
bearing on their scarred bodies the
marks of their service.
Th# men who attempted to abduct
Bergdoll and spirit him out of Ger
many meant well, even if their method
was illegal. It is to be hoped that
their violation of military regulations
will be dealt with as leniently as the
circumstances will allow. Their effort
would probably have been tutile, even
if they had succeeded in getting their
prisoner across the line. Germany
and the United States are still tech
nically at war but they are operating
under the armistice compact which
provides for a cessation of hostilties
and lays down regulations for the con
duct of the forces of each country.
The invasion of the territory of eith
er by members of the armed forces
of the other would undoubtedly be
held to be a violation of that agree
ment.

almost equal to alfalfa. Sweet clover,
if sown alone early in the spring, on
good soil, will make one cutting of
hay the first year, depending on the
-amount of rain and other conditions
being favorable. It should not be cut
for hay the first year until it has
reachcd its maximum growth, and it
is well to cut rather high so as to
leave some protection.
The second year-the growth will
start very early, and if conditions are
favorable, will be ready to cut for hay
earlier than will be expected, June
10th to 16th. The growth is very
rapid, and it soon begins to get stem
my. It should be cut when twelve to
eighteen Inches high before the stems
develop very far, which will be long
before any bloom appears.
The cutting of the whiti?- sweet
clover must be high. The new growth
does not come from buds at the crown
like alfalfa or red clover, but from
branches on the stems. If it is cut ber
low.these branches, the plant will be
killed. The ordinary fnower does not
admit of being adjusted as high as
it should be. Extensions can be put
on the shoes to hold the sickle bar
four to six inches from the ground, or
a harvester or binder may be used.

A
row
of bundles was then moved at Inter
vals to allow the wagons to drive
through in gathering them up at
threshing time.
The threshing was done with an
ordinary grain thresher, with full
concave, the riddles set for flax. The
seed is very easily knocked off the
stems, but not more than 10 to 20 per
cent was hulled by this method of
threshing. The seed is put through a
fanning mill to remove broken up
stems and other trash before it is
ready to seed, or put through a scarlf
er if it is desirable to have all the
seed germinate at once.
Cut Sweet Clover When Slightly
Green.
The seed does not all ripen at once,
and the first, to ripen will begin to
shatter'off before it is all ripe. Tho
crop should be cut when the largest
part of the seed has turned brown.
There will be less waste in cutting
when slightly green than in letting it
get too ripe. When dry the seed will
shatter very easily, but if the weather
is a little damp, or the cutting can
be done early in the morning or late
in the evening, there will not be so
much loae. Since the seed shatters
very easily, the crop should be handl-
