Anbor Day will be officially pro claimed some day In this month but as an effective force In the rehabilita tion of forest supply it is about as harmless a holiday as flag day .is for the cultivation of .patriotism. Outside of a few lessons in the primary grades of the public schools Arbor Day will come and go without so much as a recognition on the part of the public. It Is unfortunate, too, that our peo ple can not be made .to realize the Im portance of tree planting. Farmers who are malting big money sawing up old cottonwood groves for hog house •lumber do not seem to realize that ten and twenty yeajrs from now lumber Is going to be higher and scarcer than ever. The department at Washington predicts that all of the lumber-bearing forests In the United States will have been cut In thirty-three years, and yet it Is possible to make the rough hill sides and waste corners of our Amer ican farms yield an annual rental of $5 to 97 per acre for a period of twenty years by the mere planting of trees. Twenty years seems so far !n the future as to be -planting for future generations, but one's neighbors .ap proaching sixty years of age are quite numerous on the farm and any farmer under forty can reasonably expect to live to enjoy the fruits of a forest •which he may plant this year. Think of the luxury of raising your own •lumber and posts when dimension stuff is worth $50 .per thousand and that Is a conservative price estimate for 1928. Think of being independent of strikes In the coal mines and of com binations among mine owners when fuel costs 50 per cent more than it does now. A man who will build a house for the future and who has Imagination enough to brave the hard ships of the frontier in order to grow up with the country, ought to be able to see the profit in trees on the farm. Arbor Day should last all spring. CUMMINS CARRIES SOUTH DAKOTA. Cummins has carried South Dakota is the somewhat enigmatic statement of the recent delegate convention in that state. South Dakota is peopled very largely, by men from northwest Iowa. Ever since Cummins has been .in politics no set of Iowa men have watched his career and his fight against the old railroad machine in politics with any more interest than ha.ve these Iowans In South Dakota. Sen ator Kittredge, from that state, rep resented the leadership of the railroads in politics and it was a natural out come that Coe I. Crawford should be come governor as leader of the anti railroad or Cummins republicans of South Dakota. Having won control of the state ad ministration and having followed the Cummins program in Iowa closely with a primary law, two cent fare and other reforms, the same movement developed Crawford as a candidate for senator to succeed Kittredge. The skirmish came in the selection of a Taft delegation to the national convention and here the South Dakota progressives proved themselves far better politicians than the Cummins men of Iowa, They made the delegate fight a factional issue and set out to control the delegation mere ly for the prestige it would hg,ve in the senatorial primary. They did not drift •unorganized with Cummins men In some counties seeking to control and Cummins men In other counties giving the delegate conventions to the enemy by default In the name of harmony. The fight was made all along the line for control with the result that the state convention endorsed Crawford and instructed for Taft. One of the most significant aspects of this Cummins fight In South Da kota was the results In the different counties. Wherever the old caucus sys tem prevailed in selecting delegates the local railroad attorneys, land men and professional politicians carried the counties for Kittredge and wherever the primary was used the farmers came to the polls and voted for a Crawford delegation. This feeling of greater strength for the progressive cause at the primaries was so dom inant among Cummins men at the Des Moines convention that al'tho they were there in the minority they seemed to be the cheerful faction of the two. The result in South Dakota .is believed to be significant of 'the result to be In Iowa. It also points expressively to the kind of politics the Cummins men ought to have played in this state. OLD ANDOVER SCALPED. The religious press has been stirred to indignation more iby the recent amalgamation of old Andover Theolog ical Seminary with Harvard Univer sity than by any event it hat has oc curred in years. One alumnus asserts that Andover -at Cambridge will bear the same relations to the old semin ary as a scalp at an Indian's belt bears .to the head (from wihlch it was taken. It is a real tragedy in American the ology that has been enacted in the passing of Andover Theological Semin ary. This famous stronghofid of New England orthodoxy will be transferred next September and become a part of Harvard university in Cambridge, Mass. The portable wt of the school consists of seven instructors, twelve students, and a library of 56,000 books. In this Is seen a profoundly signifi cant tendency In American .religious life. Yet the New York Tribune sees the tragedy "displaced by hope." It says: --A-: "Andover seminary passes because in tits .present location it can not at tract students. With an endowment of $850,000 in productive l'unds, and with dine buildings and equipment, the school has been able to secure only two or three students far each class. If the annual income of $35,000 has been entimly spent from year to year, then each student at Andover has cost the institution between $3,000 and $5, 000 annually. And even if a large part of the income has ibeen hoarded, th« small attendance makes Andover a very poor investment for the Congre gational church. "Why can not students bo lured hit her even by tempting scholarships? Among many contributory causes three stand out prominently and ex plain not only Andover's change of base, but also the general scarcity of candidates for the Protestant minis try. "First, but least important, is the •rising generation's dissatisfaction with traditional theology. This hindrance has been largely overcome by the In creasing liberaility of seminaries: to •the great credit of leading theological (faculties .be it said that itoday they not only welcome but actually receive students of almost every belief which jniight be called Christian by any cour tesy of language. And yet the high ways have to ibe scoured every sum mer for students and enticing scholar ships held out Plainly, the trouble flies deeper than theological differ ences it roots in the practical Amer ican temperament. College students eager to better mankind are carried away from the ministry by sociologists lecturing on sweatshops and leading 'slummiing parties.' 'Seculair charities today are em ploying hundreds of noble-minded workers who, with an old-fashioned education, would have chosen the church as a means of realizing their altruism. Prospective theologs who have resisted this influence are at least prejudiced in favor of metro politan seminaries, all of which offer (limitless opportunities for practical work among the poor, the suffering, and the criminal. Hence, while all seminaries feel secular competition, those In small towns are especially menaced by the fate thait has driven Andover out of her quiet retreat back to humanity."

Anna had agreed to it long ago. It Is said that Count iBoni was a cherub in deportment compared to Helie, and Anna is destined to a Helie of a time as the result oif the wedding. It makes very little difference whether Senator Allison was paired on the Aldrich bill or was afraid to vote, the facts aire that the banking and commercial interests of the country are demanding something different and as great a financier as he is said •to be he ought to have made some effort to serve the public. Aldrich Is not ex pected to, but did the record ever show Allison opposing Aldrich ln anything? Land 4s sometimes slow to sell until the right buyer comes along. News paper advertising takes the land to thousands upon thousands of people and a buyer usually emerges from the crowd.

It's better to go into a first class restaurant after it if one happens to have the .price. And now the manufacturers. Job bers and merchants of St. Paul have resolved against the Aldrich bill. About the only real friends it has Is Aldrich and his friend Allison.

When we built our ba.rn we put a good cupdla on the roof and above that we raised a. good metal rod,, sur mounted by a compass and arrow to show the direction of the wind. It cost us something 'to do that. The compass and arrow themselves cost about te,n dollars. The little house above which iit was placed cost per. haps fifteen dollars more. But nothing albout the premises has ever been consulted more frequently than that arrow and compass. Never a man passes it seems to us, tha.t he does not look up to see what direc tion the wind is ln and I have no doubt many have shaped their day's work by that pointer.

The following inquiry from H. Bean Humeston, Iowa, has been referred to me: "I take the liberty to write you for a little information: How to raise cane and Kaffir corn to produce the most feed put up as hay? "I am going to move to the western part of South Dakota where conditions are similar to western Kansas and eastern Colorado. I want to know if this seed should be sown broadcast or with the drill for best results, also about how much seed to the acre? What is the best kind of field pea to sow and the proper stage to be cut for hay?" Cane and Kaffir corn are extensively used as forage crops in Kansas. The usual method o:f culture for cane is to sow broadcast or In close drills, at the rate of about a bushel of seed per acre, there being little preference be tween the two methods of seeding. Possibly drilling is preferable In the drier climates. The crop Is cut for hay when It is in bloom or milk stage, the usual plan being to cure it in wind rows* and oocks in the field and not stack until late 1n the fall. Often the cane Is left In the field In large cocks and hauled during the winter a3 needed for feed. It Is necessary to have a rather thick stand of the cane in order to make a good quality of hay and handle it in the way de scribed. If the cane is thin on the ground, the stalks grow too large and succulent and cannot be handled well as hay and the fodder does not cure well. Kaffir corn may be grown for for age In a similar manner as already Enter- described for cane. It -Is a common practice also to grow kaffir corn ln rows and ci^Itivate the crop, planting the kaffir corn rather thickly In the row when the purpose is to harvest It for forage only. •The Canada field peas are a stand ard variety for growing ln the north ern states. The usual practice Is to harvest the peas when the majority of the pods have filled and the vines be gin to show some yellow leaves. Care should be taker to cover the crop well In the stack to prevent Injury from .rains, since the pea hay will not shed water well.—A. M. Ten Eyck, Kansas Agricultural College.
