FINE BUILDING PROPOSED.
Finally, there is the division of pub
lication, which gives out with a lib-/
eral. hand the information secured
through the experiments of the bu
reaus and divisions, as well as the
army of agents at home and abroad.
George William Hill is the chief. He
compiles the Year Book, edits the re
ports and send* out the farmers' bul
letins.
The importance of a department or
the Government devoted to the fur
thering of "the interests of agriculture
was recognized by Washington, who, J
as Presldent/suggested it. The first j
appropriation for this purpose was
made in 1S39 and amounted to $1000
for the distribution of seeds. An in
dependent department was created in
1862. with Isaac Newton the first Com- j
missioner. The department was
raised to the first rank in the execu
tive branch in 18S8, during the term
of Commissioner Norman J. Colman,
who less than a month after being ap
pointed Secretary, was succeeded by
Hon. Jeremiah M. Ryak. There have
been but two successors to the office.
Hen. J. Sterling Morton, 1893-1S97, and
the incumbent, Hon. James Wilson.
From a room in the patent office in
18C2 to the proposed big but said to be
inadequate buidling in 1904 is an index
to the growth of the department for
the future as well as the past. The
building is to be located just'back of
the present building and out of the
line of Senator Newlands' vista 900 feet
wide from the Capitol to the monument
across the* mall. This vista is another
idea of Washington's, at this late day
being carried out by the Newlands bill
to allow no building within its limits.
The arbitrarv lines, seeing that no
other adeauate site has been provided
for the big department building, are
proving rather embarrassing to its
projectors, for it throws the struc
ture close out against B street, with
no room to grow additions and wings,
and the prediction is made that about
the time it Is to be occupied there [
will be need of still renting- the houses
across the street.
The building will comprise three
structures, ' two laboratories flanking
the central executive building, but
joined to it by covered curtains and
corridors. The executive building Is
to me (monumental in character and
square, extending front and back be
yond the line of the laboratories, which
extend' from it 256 feet each way, thus
giving to the building the form of a
cross. The material will be marble or
white granite and, completed, will form
one of the most imposing structures
in the city, a proper token of the im
portance and dignity of the great In
dustry in the interest- of which it is
builded.
A special foreign agent reports upon
these crops in other countries. He es
timates also the number and kind and
condition of animals on the farms and
ranches of the United States. He sends
his reports out by telegraph and by
poster through the mail for the in
formation of the farmer and others in
terested.
An important division of this bureau
is that of foreign markets. It works
to the end that the export trade in ag
ricultural products may be extended.
It gathers information as to the status
of supply and demand throughout the
world and distributes the same. Chief
of the bureau is John Hyde. Chief of
the division of foreign markets is
George K. Holmes.
Then there is the office of experi
ment stations, of which A. C. True is
director, and the j experiment stations
themselves in Alaska, Hawaii, Porto
Rico and several in the United States.
The office maintains relations with in
stitutions for agricultural education
and research throughout the United
States and aids in the formation of
farmers' Institutes. The office is very
effective in that it takes the initiation
along interesting lines. It publishes
the Experiment Station Record, com
prising abstracts of the bulletins and
annual reports of the experiment sta
tions of the United States. Irrigation
investigation and nutrition investiga
tion are conducted by this office.
There is the office of public road in
quiries, of which Martin Dodge is di
rector. It prosecutes inquiries touch
ing the making and management of
systems of roads and conducts experi
ments.

BULLETINS ARE WELCOME.
CALL BUREAU, HOTEL BARTON,
WASHINGTON, May 24.— Stakes have
been driven in the mall— that stretch of
green extending a mile west from the
Capitol-*-for the new home of the De
partment of Agriculture. It is to be a
beautiful home, although it will cost
just $1,000,000 short of what Secretary
Wilson asked Congress to spend upon
it. Secretary Wilson is therefore not at
all satisfied with it, although confess
ing that it is a vast improvement upon
the present housing of the department.
That is not much of a concession, how
ever, for it can hardly be said that the
department is housed at all — it is
stowed away in a dozen haphazard
places, more or less distant and inac
cessible from the central building, most
of which is rented and few of which
were remotely designed for its use. The
museum of the department, the de
struction of which would be a great
loss, is In an old ramshackle wooden
building. Many of the bureaus are quite
as poorly disposed; some of them are
broken up through not being able to
get all their members into the one
building provided.
So that to say the proposed structure
improves this condition suggests the
question as to how much. It will bring
the many bureaus that are now em
braced by the department into compact
groups about the executive building,
but it will not leave them much room
to expand. And that is the difficulty.
For this department is one of rapid
expansion, and there is no limit under
the law by which it was created, ex
cept, of course, the annual appropria
tion. And the chances are that as Con
gress is educated to the good works of
this department year by year, so, year
by year, will it raise the denomination
of the treasury warrant as the Secre
tary may desire. And not the depart
ment itself will work upon Congress to
this end as will the farmers of the
country.
stance, in England and Germany. This
bureau maintains a special dairy di
vision which not only gathers and dis
tributes information, but maintains a
system of inspection. It also main
tains an experiment station. The chief
of the. bureau is D. E. Salmon.. .
The Bureau of Plant Industry
studies plant life in all its relations to
agriculture. It has charge of the ex
perimental and test gardens and sta
tions; it searches the world for new
plants and seeds and distributes vast
quantities over the country without
charge. This bureau is the one that,
perhaps, gets closer than any other
to the agricultural community and its
work is of the most far-reaching im
portance. The chief of the bureau is
Dr. Beverly T. Galloway.
The Bureau of Forestry was allowed
by Congress in 1899— just five years
ago — the sum of $28,520. For this
year its provision is $350,000, which is
a sign of the expansion of this par
ticular branch of the department.
The bureau stands between the for
ests and the lumber men for both of
their sakes and for the sake of agri
culture and other interests as well. It
labors for the conservative lumbering
of the forests, it studies commercial
ly valuable trees, takes measures to
protect the forests against fire and
gives practical assistance to tree plant
ers. The importance of the work is
shown in the recent creation of the
bureau from a "division" of another
bureau and in the large funds al
lowed it.
GREAT WORK BEING DONE.
Dr. Harvey W. Wiley has been with
the Agricultural r X>eparJ.ment for
twenty-one years. He was conducting
experiments and making analyses
years before there was any Bureau of
Chemistry, but now he is at the head
of such a department and 120 men
are employed in its service. He can
remember when J 15,000 was gracious
ly alowed by Congress for the Agricul
tural Department and this year he was
granted $50,000 for his department.
The bureau is one of the oldest in the
department, having been organized
with its establishment in 1862. It di
rects its attention to the investiga
tion of soils, fertilizers and irrigation
waters, insecticides, foods of men and
animals, quality of materials used in
road construction, inspection of ex
port and import food products. This
terse statement covers a wide field of
experiments. There is a food labora
tory, a special sugar laboratory, a
dairy laboratory, a road material
laboratory, soil and fertilizer labora
tory, Insecticide and agricultural
water laboratory, drug laboratory,
contracts laboratory. The bureau co
operates with the Association of Of
ficial Agricultural Chemists, with the
experiment stations and also with
other departments of the Government.
There is the bureau of soils, charged
with the study of soils in their rela
tion to practical agriculture. The great
work of this bureau is the classi
fication and mapping of soils in ag
ricultural regions throughout the
country, showing the distribution of
the various soil types with a view to
determining their adaptability to cer
tain crops and their management and
treatment. This is an immense con
tract, but is being steadily prosecuted
with excellent and valuable results.
The work has been carried on in thir
ty-four States and Territories. Of the
area covered In the several States.
North Carolina leads the list accord
ing to the latest report, with 464G
square miles, California following with
3921.
An investigation is also carried on
as to the materials and methods in
volved in artificial fertilization and
its influence upon the original soils.
Extensive investigations have been
and are still being carried on with re
gard to the alkali problem. Milton
Whitney is chief of the bureau.
SYSTEMATIC STUDY OF PESTS.
The study of insects affecting field
crops, orchards, forests, etc., and in
sects in relation to diseases of man
and other animals in all the wide ap
plication of the term Is under the di
vision of entomology, L. O. Howard
chief. The work, of course, is directed
at a cure in every- case. The division
has been having a long and expensive
contest with the cotton-boll weevil,
for which Congress appropriated $258,
000, and despite which the pest still
remains in devastating activity in the
cotton belt. That a cure will be ulti
mately discovered and applied, how
ever, under this patient, persistent and
comprehensive Government system of
investigation as it could not be by pri
vate and sporadic attempts, there ?can
be no doubt. It was this division that
dispatched C. L. Marlatt to China,
who brought back with him several
colonies of the ladybird proving so ef
fective against the San Jose scale and
which brought also the flg fertilizing
insect from Smyrna.
The division of biological survey
studies the geographical . distribution
of animals and plants and maps the
natural life zones of the country. It
encourages the - preservation of the
beneficial and the destruction of . the
injurious species. C. Hart Merriam Is
chief of the division. ' :
The bureau of statistics is an im
portant one. The statistician, through
the agency' of about 250,000 correspond
ents, collects statistics and makes es
timates concerning the products of ag
riculture. He figures up the area sown
to all the leading crops and through
the growing- season collects \ and pub
lishes statements as to their- condition.
The work of the department is di
vided uo among various bureaus, di
visions and offices, each with its chief
and corps of experts. First there is
the weather bureau, the work of which
is most familiar to all the people. The
work of this bureau was one of the
first undertakings of the department.
It was inaugurated by the first Com
missioner of Agriculture, Isaac New
ton, while the present department of
the Government was a mere division
of the patent office. It was at first
given over to the War Department,
subsequently taken back by the Ag
ricultural Department, again handed
back to the War Department and final
ly, thirty years after Commissioner
Newton's suggestion, developed into a
full-fledged bureau, with Willis L.
Moore its present chief. The bureau
maintains stations throughout the
United States and West Indies, 180 in
number, and from their reports fore
casts are made up covering forty-eight
hours and these are published broad
cast. Through an arrangement with
those Governments advices , are re
ceived from Mexico and Canada, the
Azores and also along the Western
coast of Europe. This bureau also
keeps advised through similar stations
numbering nearlv 300 as to the condi
tion of the rivers, and foretells floods.
It gathers statistics on climate and
the condition of the crops and dis
tributes the information and is con
stantly experimenting within and ex
tending the lines of its province.
,The bureau of animal industry in
vestigates the problems "and difficul
ties that beset the live stock indus
try. It fights disease in a compre
hensive and scientific way, inspects the
stock living and the -food products
when entering into interstate and ex
port commerce and bas' been instru

RISE OF A DEPARTMENT.
essential part of their business. Any
thing the Agricultural Department
wants they think it ought to have. And
seeing that there are some six and a
half million farms in this country,
what the farmers, when they get to
gether, say is very likely to "go."
The appropriation ipr the work of
the department is less than one per
cent of the sum of the annual appro
priations, less than one dollar per farm,
less than the cost of one battleship. It
is the only department that turns
money into the pocket of the Govern
ment. Under this condition the farmer
is dispc-sed to say to the Congress, "let
our department do all the good it can."
As an illustration of the expanding
power of the department the multipli
cation of its members or employes will
serve. When Secretary Wilson took
charge seven years ago the census of
the department totaled 1900. To-day it
is 4100— considerably more than doubl
ed. And the increase during the last
two years is above that of the pre
ceding five years. This explains the
labels on the residences and barns all
about the neighborhood as showing
them to be in the service of the de
partment and accounts as well for the
anxiety of the Secretary as to the ade
quacy of the new building. He would
build for the future a little, taking into
account that when the present build
ing was constructed only thirty-six
years ago it was deemed all sufficient.
There are more department workers
outside of that building now than in.
And why this expansion? The law
creating the department defines its
"designs and duties" to be "to acquire
and to diffuse among the people of the
United States useful information on
subjects connected with agriculture in
the most general and comprehensive
sense of the word." By this leave the
Secretary may go into merchandising
if he chose as did Secretary Rusk when
he introduced cornmeal into Europe
and Secretary Wilson when he sent
American dairy products to London to
test the conditions under which they
might enter into competition with
European goods. He can explore the
earth's surface to discover if it have
in any hidden or remote place any de
sirable plant that might be grown to
advantage in some section of our own
diversified soil or climate, or if there
be any art or Insect of plant that
might combat the ailments of our na
tive products. By this right he has
discovered and brought here the won
derful fertilizing insect by which the
growing of Smyrna and Capri figs is
broueht to perfection in California;
dates~ have been brought from Persia
and Africa that have made themselves
at home in California, new strains of
rice from Japan have been domesticat
ed in Louisiana and Texas, Sumatra's
tobacco is made to grow in Connecti
cut, and macaroni wheat is found to
thrive when transplanted in the semi
arid regions of the Northwest; insects
have been brought from far South
Africa and beetles from China and
Japan that have been set to destroy
the destroyers of our fruit trees. Every
foot of soil in the whole country is be
ins tested and mapped, showing its
needs or its best capabilities: the
farmer is being met individually and
in groups and "shown how." educated,
taught his own best capabilities; the
young are being interested in agricul
tural pursuits; farmers are not only
shown the necessity and great advan
tage of £ood roads, but the Secretary
undertakes to show the experts how
the best roads may be made better.
All these things he does and a great
many others and still a great many
others he is going to do when he gets
round to it.

life of her four-month-old babe, by ad
ministering a dose of carbolic acid
mixed with laudanum, and then com
mitted suicide by taking: a dose of the
same poison at her home in this city
late to-day.
The discovery of the bodies of the
mother and child was made by a six

his return from school. His cries for
help attracted the neighbors, who found
the babe dead and Mrs. Stratton bare
ly alive. She^died before medical as
sistance could reach her. Mrs. Stratton
had been ill and despondent for some
time. She was 28 years old. /

The Judiciary committee made a
special report late to-day upon the
question as to whether the Philippine
field could be treated as '"foreign ter
ritory" with reference to the mission
ary Bishop situation. Th*» judiciary
< oinmittee decided that it might be so
treated. It is possible that the episco
pacy committee will recommend a mis
sionary Bishop for this field, but
ecareeiy rirobable at this late stage of
the conference.
There was very little interest in the
••lection of editors, as the field had
been" thoroughly canvassed by the re-
candidates and in most cases
there was but one nomination for each
office. The Southwestern Christian
Advocate, published at New Orleans,
furnished tne only contest and it took
two ballots to elect R. E. Jones to the
editorship of that publication. Other
editors named are: Methodist Review,
\Y. V. Kelly; Christian Advocate. J. M.
Buckley, New York; Western Christian
Advocate, L«vi Gilbert; Northwestern
Christian Advocate, D. D. Thompson;
'Central Christian Advocate, C. B.
Spencer: Pittsburg Christian Advocate,

tian Advocate, D. L. Rader, Tacoma;

Editor of Haus and Herd, Frederick

There was a warm and prolonged de
bate agair.st the fixing of Philadelphia
as the place of residence of a member
«>f "the Episcopal Board, as was also
the case in regard to Cincinnati. There
¦was" a strong effort made to substitute
Fort Worth for Philadelphia and when
this failed the champions of the Texas
city sought to have it substituted in
place of Buenos Ayres. Both failed,
hcrwever, aVid in the end the report of
the episcopacy committee was adopted
\rithout change. The places adopted
are as follows: New York. Boston,
Philadelphia. Nashville. Buffalo. Cin
