i SIXTEEN YEARS OF FARM PROGRE8S
B ' "Men grow old In service and In years, and
, ceaso their labors, but tbo works of their labor
H and the children of their brains will llvo on,
( and may whatever of worth Is In theso bo ever
This quotation Is from tho report of the Hon.
HJ Jnines Wilson, Secretary of Agriculture, who at the
Hj ripe ago of soventy-scven Is about to "cense his
H labors" In the ol.iclal family of tho President of
H tho United States. Hut the work of his labors
H will go on, nnd tho many things of worth that he
H , has done for the people will bo ever blooming. Un-
M ' der tho nbovo caption tho Literary Digest reviews
B , the Secretary's labors as follows:
H It Is true that Iowa has never given ub a Presl-
M t dent, but "she has dono better," In tho Provldonco
Journal's opinion, in giving us "James Wilson, of
Traor, Tama County." Since Secretary Wilson's
H f "sixteen years of Cabinet servlco breaks all rec-
H f ords for time and equals any In public usefulness,"
m r he has every right, thinks the Chicago Inter Ocean,
H f to Introduco his last annual report with the words:
H ' "At tho close of a long administration filled with
B f accomplishments, It Is fitting that the record of
B I sixteen years should bo written." This record,
HHj I writes the Secretary:
M j "Ueglns with a ) early farm production worth
H , $4,000,000,000 and ends with $9,532,000,000. Then
H tho farmers were loaded with debts that wero pain-
M fill burdens; prosperity followed and grew with
H unexampled speed. Then tho farmer was a Joke of
Q tho caricaturist; now he is like tho stone thnt wns
H rejected by the builders and has become the head-
M stone of the corner. . .
H "During the last sixteen years the farmer has
M steadily Inci eased his wealth production year by
H year with the exception of 1911, when1 the value
1 declined from that of the preceedlng year. If tho
M ' wealth produced on farms in 1S99 be regarded as
B 100, tho wealth produced sixteen years ago, or in
B 1S97, Is rep'escnted by 84, and the wealth produced
H In 1912 by 202.1. During the sixteen ears the
HHJ farmers' wealth production Increased 141 per cent.
H "The array of Jlgures that eires3 the farmers'
PH ' contribution to national wealth production testifies
H. to the farmers' basic Importance to the nation.
H During the last sixteen years the wealth production
M . on farms, according to the census items reached
M tho grand total of more than $105,000,000,000. This
M stream of wealth has poured out of tho armors'
Bj ! ' horn of plenty and In sixteen years has equaled
H about, three-quarters of the present national
H j wealth."
M ! A little farther on In the report tho Chicago
H ; Inter Ocean finds "good news for tho city dweller,
M i on whom the Increased cost of living, which Is
H mainly cost of food, has prcst sorely for somo
H l years past." For Secretary Wilson declares that this
t Increase of agricultural wealth has just begun:
PH ' "The most effective move towards reducing tho
J cost of living Is the production of greater crops,
fl Heginnlng8 havo been made In a production Increas-
H )' Ing taster than tho natural Increase of population."
B . Tho Secretary calls attention proudly to this
M year's eno'mous crops, of which on'y two wheat
Hj and tobacco, ha Itui ocre(lfd twice In prodtic-
H tlon, and only two, cotton nnd rice, have been ox-
PB ceeded once in production. "All of tho other crops
PPj stand at high water mark all of tho cereals but
H I wheat and rice, the great hay crop, potatoes, flax-
H seed, nnd beet sugar." Ho n'so recounts the ad-
H ' ' i vances mado In n Department which has In sixteen
PB years "progressed from the kindergarten through
PH the primary, middle, nnd upper grades of develop-
IP merit until now it has a thousand tongues speaking
H with authority:"
PPJ "Bureaus have been created and expanded.
IP Lines of research, Investigation, nnd demonstration
P havo been multiplied. Congress hns piled duty on
P duty from year to year. The corps of experts
P needed in the Increasing amount nnd variety of
H' service has grown greatly. The Department has
PPJ become a great agricultural university for post-
P ' graduate work. Discoveries for tho benefit of farm
BP practises and Improvements of old ones havo been
BP countless. The Department hns both promoted nnd
BP begun a revolution In tho arts and sciences of ngrl-
PPJ As tho press dispatches summarize the figures:
P "Prom a department with 2,444 employees In
P 1897, nnd an appropriation of $3,272,902, It has In-
BP creased to 13,858 employees nt the beginning of the
PP present fiscal year, with an appropriation this year
H of almost $26,000,000. Whereas thero aro now
P 62,000 requests every week for Department publi-
P cations, thero were but 600 In 1897, and In this po-
H rlod 225,000.000 copies have been distributed."
H This brief summing up of tho public life of
Hj James Wilson appears In tho New York Evening
PP "He wns born In Scotland seventy-soven years
HI v ago, but has lived In tho United States for sixty
P years. Ho served In several of tho general assem-
PH bl I oa of Iowa, In ono of them as speaker; and also
Hj ' as railway commissioner, regent of tho State Unt-
HH V vorslty, director of State agricultural experiment
P ' jstatlons, and profeseor of ngrlcultnro In Iowa Agrl-
H ' y cultural College. Ho waB first elected to Congress

In 1872, and served In tho Forty-third, Forty-fourth,
and Forty-eighth Congresses. It was President
McKlnloy, who In 1897, made him Secretary of Ag
riculture, reappointing him in -1901, as Koosevelt
did In 1905, nnd Taft In 1909."
A COUNTY BEFORE WE DIE
Wo wish our friend tho little editor a few paccs
west of us in this good year 1913 could renllzo that
we nro not living in tho dark ages, but that wo aro
cbreast of the twentloth century, and that thero
Is a chance hero to make a city and n county be
foro we die. Ho seems to have an awful grouch
against individuals nnd things. In his last Issuo,
ho takes a stab at Tho Fra, and we nro again wdn
dcrlng Just what has nettled him. We read ,hd
following in Tho Fra:, - j
Natural resources can bo conserved until tho
peoplo starve for lack of food and freeze for want
of fuel. Things aro valuable only ns th;y arc.
That perhaps hit him hard Judging from his at
titude on tho recent railroad franchise, nnd espe
cially when It Is considered thnt tho frnnchlso wns
granted ngalnst his protest. Again Tho Fra says:
A water power s(to where tho water Is used
to turn the wheels of trade means a prosperous,
growing, expanding; city. It means parks, school
houses, 1-allro.ids, good roads, automobiles, happy
homes furnished with books, pictures, rugs nnd
all tho luxuries of life. Until this power of tho
waterfall Is mod, however, It is only n place that
thrills the Heart of occasional tourists or bridal
couples who linger In the neighborhood and say,
"Oh!" and "Ah!"
No doubt our friend hns never expanded his
brain to the extent of thinking of these things, nnd
when they nro suddenly thrust upon him ho gets
n doso of sulks. Again Tho Fra says:
Those who clamor loudest for conservation do
nothing but complain and find fault with the men
of enterprise, nnd tell how tho things should bo
dono. They are villagers all, lifted to the nth
Our little friend perhaps never beforo realized
that Tho Fra could get such a true photograph of
himself, but hero It Is. If this little relic of the back
nges could only realize as Tho Fra again says that
"Duslness men nnd men of Initiative, who
possess the far prophetic vision, nro the men
who create capital, and If they are the men who
know how to use It."
What a different world he would 11 vo in. He
would then be found supporting enterprise and men
who hnve tho inltiatlvo and tho money to build .up
After nil the blocks ho has nttempted to put
In the' way of the U. It. T. Company, it Is refresh
ing, however, to havo him say that so far this com
pany has "mado good." The only regret Is thnt
ho nnd his paper did not know it would "make .
good" ns tho multitudes knew It nil the time ho
wns trying to knock tho enterprise.
, Last Tuesday morning we read the following
on this subject in Tho Journal: "Have you over
been engaged In promoting any public enterprise
that deserved to succeed, that jou havo not been
supported In by THE JOURNAL, if you mado
known to It what you were striving for." Yo gods,
hold jour breath for a moment while nervo taks
back seat, and egotism reigns supremo. Fancy
for ono moment tho late David Ecclcs calling upon
Tho Journal worthies and unfolding to them the
gigantic problcmb of his stupendous brnln for tho
development of n great commonwealth. "Make
known to Tho Journal what ho Is striving for,"
truckle to The Journal and Us support will follow.
Judging from results such men as David Ecclea
Just brush the opposition of such lightweights aside
as they would a fly, nnd uso tho timo to building
railroads nnd establishing Institutions thnt go 'to
make up a rcspcctablo community. Yes It Is true
thnt tills great venturo is a success, but not through
any encouragement on the part of our Journalistic
friends. Tho best part of the cntlro matter is that
they wero not needed, and the peoplo will enjoy
tho blessings. In spite of the nngglng nnd knock
ing of this sheet, enterprise Is hero nnd hero n
great county will bo built beforo wo die.

PROTECTION HAS A HARD KNOCK
Protection has received a hard knock nccordlng,
to tho London Dally News, nnd Governor Wilson
has many warm friends on Drltlsh soil, according
to tho same paper. In a recent Isbuo appears tho
"Tho election Is tiio greatest blow which has
fallen upon protection In our time, though It has
been everywhere nssalled by thoso who havo suf
fered under it. If, therefore, as there Is tho best
of reasons to expect, Mr. Wilson and his party
prove true to their faith, this election will be 67
moment to tho world nt large as well as to the '
United States. Tho war against protection Is nn
Interest common to nil peoples, nnd the world
has too long been denied that Inspiration and that
leading which wo hnve a right to expect from tho
greatest of all republics.
"That tiio Democratic party should return to
olllco nfter sixteen years In the wilderness Is
nothing. What matters Is that It Is n regener
ated party which has returned; entrusted by the
American people with a definite mission and led
by a man who has tho character nnd the Intel
lect to carry tho mission through."
Judging from the fluttering down tho street,
one C. England must have been "hit below tho
belt," Very kind of Mr. England to say that our
answortto tho offect that wo would tako his own
version on himself and agreo with him that ho wns
as "pure as Bnow." When Mr. C. England speaks
of inconsistency In the last paragraph of his last
testimonial on hlniRclf ho must havo boon In tho
