From Keelboat to
Emery Streele
tie MIGHTY activities and marvelous progress the
world naa worn ip the past 100 years are strikingly
illustrated in tbe centennial celebration of the Incor
poration of St. Louis. Picturesque pageants with
everything in the way of the spectacular which is
most likely to stir the imagination of the spectator
Into appreciating the work of the past through con
trasts with the present feature the week's program.
The greater part of the history oi early St. Louis
I - really more fit for the unwritten American epic
poem than it Is for mere prose. Its work as a frontier
town In the first half of the nineteenth century made
it the mid-continental city of the United States in the
seconi *L*lf. Its pioneer trade routes are now the great routes of s'tcm
transportation between Lhu Rio Grande and the Canadian border and be
tween the Mississippi and the Pacific. It established the first water routes
from the headwaters of the Ohio to the mouth of the Missouri and of the
Illinois, opening the first water connection for steam transportation between
the Ohio and the upper Mississippi and Missouri, developing the Ohio river
states on both sides of that stream.
Every state now on the map west of the Mississippi was penetrated by
its hus.'ness pioneers, establishing the first centers of trade. The whole west
is interested with St. Louis in celebrating this great event, because in
foundiug the first great city of the trans Mississippi west the pioneers
made the western beginnings uow explained in
scores of other western cities and in actual thou
sands of other incorporated towns, which, if they
are not already great, are not unduly modest in
their expectations of becoming so. The Invi
tation to a thousand mayors of American cities
to participate in the festivities shows that St.
Ixrnls fullv appreciates its position as the pioneer
city of the great west.
As there were less than 200 houses, including
outhouses and barns, in the St. Louis which lncor
porated in 1809, It could not have had much over
900 people. The town was already the chief seat
of the western fur trade, with its trading atatlona
pushed to the headwaters of the Arkansas and far
towards the sources of the Missouri and the Yel
lowstone. Doing business wholly by barter, with
almost no money in hand, in sight or in circula
tion. with resources represented almost wholly by
the spirit of its 900 people; with the ae and rifle
and blacksmith's stodge as its Implements, with
the one-horse cart, the keelboat and canoe as Its
i rausportaUen facilities, the little town, when It
incorporated, already looked on its work as that
of opening up the I'nited States of the future to
the Rocky mountains and beyond them to the Pa
cific In 1809 ft had lost Meriweather Lewis, but
it still had his companion explorer, William
■Clark. to fctund for the spirit of the American and
F.cnch "makers of destiny" who thought little
more of starting a thousand miles into the un
known west from St. I,ouis than the average St.
Louisan now thinks of starting for the Pacific
•const in a sleeping car.
From a village of 9UO Inhabitants Jo the fourth
city In the I'nited States, with a population of
three-quarters of a million, is a wonderful
achievement, but It sinks Into insignificance when
com paled with the giant strides of the past cen
tury in the world of science, commerce, the arts
and every field of endeavor which makes for a
tilt-'her snd hotter civilization.
It Is e severe strain on the imagination to at
tempt to tirldge over the gap between the mean
ing of an airship crossing the Mississippi river
at St. Louis this year and what the ancient keel
boat* of 1809 meant, as they landed at the foot
of Walnut street, where the town was founded in
1764 by the pioneers who had paddled and cor
delled their bateaux painfully up the river from
New Orleans under Laclede as he advanced In
the hold attempt to control the fur trade of half
a continent with his handful of men.
The keelboat then was no more out of date
than the airship is now. It was the best modern
boat in 1809 which could be equipped by the capi
tal of St. Louis, of New Orleans or of Philadel
phia. Recause of it Philadelphia and St. Louis
commanded the east and west movement of busi
ness as that north and south was commanded by
New Orlea. s and St. as soon as their first
fleets of kcelhoatf. were regularly organized. It
helped to make great history, even if it did have
to be pulled up stream by a rope dragged by men
on the bank.
This distance in point of change in the way
thtags are done is almost Impassable for the
Great Preacher Had Fun with Girls at
Summer Resort—Practical
Aid to Editor.
An old friend of the late Dr. Ed
ward Everett Hale contributes several
characteristic stories of the flood of
reminiscence which has followed the
great preacher's death
"Dr. Hale was pre-eminently a man
who practiced what he preached." his
grandfathers not only navigated the river in
keelboats, but lay flat behind the goods the boats
were loaded with while they were being shot at
by Indians along the banks.
It Is almost if not quite as hard now to imag
ine what the world meant before the age of
steam as It is to think cut what will be Its mean
ing in the age of the perfected airship and aero
plane. Every contrast possible in the St. Louis
centennial week of pageants Is a challenge to
look backward and forward in the attempt to
find out what a hundred years already mean, as
the first success in the attempt to find what It la
to tucun shortly, for this generation and for the
grandchildren of this generation in 2009.
The makers of the centennial week program
were keenly alive to the opportunities for spec
tacular effect suggested by the most striking
events of the world’s progress. The aeronautic
events such as balloon races, aeroplane and diri
gible balloon contests, suggest the future possi
bilities of transportation in contrast with those
of 1809. For comparison with automobiles and
ueroplanes the bateau of i.aclede's day. with its
stumpy mast, its cordelle and its sweeps, is an
educational feature of the water pageant, which
includes crafts of nil the kinds which now ply the
waters of the Mississippi. The Veiled Prophet's
pageant, unique and picturesque, is another fea
ture which is full of domantic interest. The edu
cational parade, the parade representing 3,000 of
Bt. Louis’ industries, the procession of a thou
sand mayors and the other evemts which find a
place on the program all suggen that as a great
week for St. Louis its centennial week is still
greater, as it belongs to a hundred years of hla
tory-making for the continental United States.
The city of St. Louis was founded by Pierre
Leclede Liguest in 1764. The territory west of
the Mississippi river was then in possession of
friend writes In the Woman's Home
Companion. "He was constantly fol
lowing the last of his four famous ad
monitions and leading a hand him

I his travels brought him to a town
! where a friend of his was editing a

"When he called on him this friend
i unfolded a tale of woe. His wife was

mind. In point of
fact In St. Loula it
la only a matter of
the third generation
between keelboat
and aeroplane. In
1907 the first air
ship on record as
crossing the Missis
sippi river crossed
it at St. Louis dur
ing the Internation
al contests of that
year. It is something
to remember now as
part of the record to
which belongs the his
tory of the first loco
motive crossing the
Mississippi at St. Louis
In 1852 to complete
the work of the St.
Louis argonauts of
1849. crossing to the
Pacific in their "prai
rie schooners."
If we suppose aero
planes and airships
circling In the air
above the St. l/oul*
keelboat landing of a
hundred years ago we
may imagine. If we
can. how they appear

he took a vacation the paper must

hts hotel sat down at his desk.
“Before hie got up he had written
with that ready pen of his enough ar
ticles on topics of contemporaneous
interest to fill his friend's editorial
columns for a week. Returning to the
suncum he threw his copy on the
editor's desk with the remark:
France. Laclede landed at the foot of what ta
now Market street, organized the village and
resided there for 14 years. He named the new
site St. Louis In honor of Louis XV.. the reigning
sovereign of France. The territory was trans
ferred by France to Spain by secret treaty In
1762, but It was not announced in the new village
until October, 1764. In 1803 Spain retroceded the
sovereignty to France and on April 30, 1803
France sold all the territory west of the Missis
sippi river, known as the Louisiana purchase, to
the United States for $15,000,000. Napoleon re
marking: “This accession of territory strengthens
forever the power of the United States."
With lesß than a thousand inhabitants when
the whole country had not quite seven and a
quarter million in 1809, St. Louis emerged from
the era ot the keelboat and pirogue to pioneer the
steamboat on western rivers. Loading Its first
steamboat in 1817 it had more than doubled Its
population of 1810 In 1820. From 4,000 In 1820.
two decades of steamboating gave It 16.469 In 1840.
About that time It began its great transcontinental
work with the “prairie schooner,” reinforcing the
steamboat in overland transit. With the trans
continental overland movement, to Oregon aa well
as California, growing. In 1850 it had 77.860 people
and was beginning its work as the first pioneer of
railroads to the Pacific. After bringing the first
locomotive west of the Mississippi in 1852. It more
thau doubled its population in that decade, reach
ing 165,587 in 1860. With the foundations of the
states now west of the river, already laid along Its
first trade routes In 1860, It advanced In the next
two decades to 350,552 people. Chicago was pass
ing it In population then, without being able to
take from it its historical place as the "first great
city of the west," the pioneer and founder of the
west of the present. Since 1880 It has doubled its
population once more, advancing from 350.000 to
over 700,000. At its present rate of Increase, re
sponsive to that of the Mississippi valley. St. Loula
is doubling business in a little over 10 years. Its
bank clearings increased from $292,000,000 in 1869
to $3,074,000,000 in 1908. Its tonnage of merchan
dise received and forwarded was 20.162.000 tons
for the first six months of this year. Its bank
resources reported June 23. 1909. at $385,881,000.
more thau double the total of the tenth year back.
Such figures Illustrate much more than local
progress. They are mid-continental before they
become lord, m the sense that the people of the
whole area between the Allegheny and Rocky
mountains are now exerting new energies and util
izing new forces of growth, unforeseen even as
late as 10 years ago. As the percentages of this
growth are of course greatest west of the Missis
sippi river. St. Louis has almost “made itself over"
in 15 years In growing up to the new growth of
the country. Since It began work for the world's
fair, celebrating the Louisiana purchase. It has
learned to look back on itself in the last decade of
the nineteenth century as “old St. Louis." In
looking back to the older St. Louis of 1809, it can
boast that as a frontier outpost it led the progress
of the continental United States. In looking for
ward. in its centennial year, it can see that the
greatest results of the history It has made are only
the beginnings of greater results, which belong to
the immediate future of the continental United
• States, whose progress makes the frontier town of
1809 the midcontinental city of 1909.

Hydraulic Ram Best Irrigation
System for Small Farms.
Small Stream May Be Capable of
Watering Good Bized Tract of
Land Open Up Great Possi
bilities for Cheap Supply.
Of the various irrigation systems
for the small Individual farmer the hy-
Iraullc ram, where it can be applied,
is perhaps the most attractive. The
use of the ram pre-supposes the pres
ence of a waterfall; not necessarily a
cataract, but a stream of water with
a fair fall, which might, as an ex
ample, be used for running a grist
mill, says the American Cultivator.
The stream may be a very small
one, and still be capable of irrigating
a good-sized tract. In various irri
gation plants the water is pumped up
by rams into a reservoir excavated
on a clay hill, or made by throw
ing a dam across a ravine, and thus
backing the water up Into a little
lake, its situation being higher than
the land to be irrigated. The water
thus accumulated for months is held
until needed, when it is run through
open ditches on 10 the fields below
tho reservoir level. A tiny stream
having a flow of 80 gallons a minute
and a fall of' 20 feet will operate a
ram that will pump 15,000 gallons a
day to a height of 100 feet above the
ram. This amount of water, stored
as stated, will furnish all the neces
sary irrigation for from ten to fifteen
acres. A ram of this size takes its
water from a four-inch drive pipe.
The improved rams of to-day open
up great possibilities for cheap water
supply. Their first cost is very
moderate, and they pump by water
power, requiring no attendant. They
are manufactured of large capacity,
and can be relied upon for pumping
water to any desired elevation for Ir
rigating comparatively high lands.
They are made from a one-inch size,
using three gallons a minute, to a du
plex 12-tnch ram. using two 12-inch
drive pipes. One of the latter placed
>n a stream having a flow of 1,500
gallons a minute, which is, by the
way, a very small creek—with a 20-
root fall—will pump nearly 300,000 gal
lons a day to a height of 100 feet
above the ram. Such creeks or
branches with near-by Irrigable lands
are very plentiful In any of the hilly
sections of the country, and where
’.hey exist should be recognized as the
basis of certain wealth. It may be
necessary to construct a small canal,
just as in the establishment of the
ald-fashloned overshoot mill wheel. In
fact, old. abandoned mill sites, where
much of the work has already been
done, can sometimes be utilized. Any
amount of fall, from four feet up to
10 feet, can be utilized. Incidentally,
water for house and stock can often
be provided.
It may, therefore, pay to look into
the question of water supply on the
farm and to figure out a plan to use
this greatest of natural resources. The
certainty of production and the great
ness of the yield under irrigation
make it worth while to go to consid
erable trouble to benefit by the water
supply. If the farm is so fortunate
as to have a good-sized one. Even the
flow from a good-sized spring may be
utilized. In the west every opportu
nity for using water in this way is
quickly grasped, and it is an astonish
ment to the eastern traveler to see
with what ease and at what little ex
pense he could have always used the
paters of the small stream flowing
through his farm back home.
While Irrigation Is Good Thing. It
Must Bo Properly Handled to
Get Bast Results.
While irrigation is a very good
thing too much water is very disas
trous. We know one instance in which
an orchard of several acres was
planted. Soon after the water had
been applied above it seeped out on
the slopes of the bench and rendered
the upper part of the orchard impass
able for man or beast. In a few days
the first three rows of trees next to
the bench were practically all dying
or dead, except on a small knoll of
rising ground which was high enough
to escape, and the Injury was extend
ing to the next few rows adjoining. A
deep trench was dug so as to Inter
cept and drain the seepage water with
the result that the land below the
ditch was hard and firm while that
above was impassable as before. The
trees below this ditch rapidly recov
ered their vigor and it appeared that
the orchard was saved. A cave-in oc
curred. however, in this ditch near
one end. damming up the water for a
small distance, when ft immediately
appeared on the surface in the or
chard below the ditch and within
three or four days .the adjacent trees
were brown and scorched as If they
had been rwept by fire. The ditch
was cleaned and repaired and the wa
ter soon subsided from around these
trees and all but one of them recov
ered and put forth a new crop of
leaves, the one next to the. break be
ing the only tree that died.
Perils of Orchards.
Even If an orchard does have rea
sonable care and become a -source of
revenue it is qlwgys facing a peril
which is more pronounced in an irri
gated country than elsewhere. In
food years like the present the
branches bend low in early summer
with the weight of promising fruit
and the owner cannot bring himself
to thin the crop for the sake of the
tree. He props the weighted limbs
with old boards and prongs only to
find later In the season that the wind
breaks down the brittle branches or
the fruit is too small to be of any
commercial use.
Fall Litters.
The man who raises pure bred hogs
rarely breeds twice a year; but the
commercial hog raiser finds It profit
able to get litters both in the spring
nnd fall. The fall litter is the more
expensive to raise, but unless there is
an unusually large supply of hogs in
sight, the market prices will be better
than for the spring litters.
Experiments Prove Conclualvely
Stockmen Were Right in Ascribing
Poisonous Properties to Plant.
It was evident that the first thing
to do in the field experiment was to
prove whether the loco weeds did or
did not produce the disease. That
there was some disease causing loss
there was no question. The pictures
show aome of the animals at different
stages of the Investigation. Horses
and cattle were furnished by the Col
orado Experiment station, which co
operated in the work, and at a later
stage in the investigation another co
operative experiment with the Nebras
ka Experiment station was carried on
in western Nebraska, writes C. Dwight
Marsh in American Review of Re
views. Two similar pieces of land
were selected; one was freed of the
loco and In the other the loco, which
was there In an abundant crop, was
left standing. The stock was divided
and part Dastured on the loco pas
ture and part on the loco-free pas
ture. Other animals were fed in the
corrals purple and white loco which
were cut for the purpose.
The results of these experiments
proved very interesting. The animals
in the loco pasture ate freely of the
weed; their coats became smoother
and they gained rapidly In flesh. Ev
erything pointed toward the probabil
ity of the non-poisonous character of
the plant. This opinion was strength
ened by the failure to find, in the
Washington laboratory, any evidence
of poiso®.
After some weeks of feeding, how
ever, it was noticed, somewhat sud
denly. that one or two of the cattle
stumbled as they walked. A series
of symptoms followed rapidly upon
those first noticed, and in a short time
our animals began to die. Before the
end of the season nearly all the ani
mals to which had been fed any con
siderable amount of loco were dead,
while those that were kept In the
loco-free pasture remained perfectly
well. The first season's work proved
conclusively that the stockmen were
right in ascribing poisonous proper
ties to the loco plants. Loco would
kill, and the manner of death showed
those symptoms which the stockmen
claimed to be characteristic of lo
coed animals. Further work in Wash
ington laboratories was confirmatory
of the field work, and the demonstra
tion was complete of the poisonous
character of the loco weeds.
Tims for Tipping Raspberry Is When
Long, Slondor Branches Incline
Toward Earth.
Many of our readers have Black
Cap raspberries as well as the pulple
Columbian and Schaffer red rasp
berry bushes which do not produce
sprouts, but must be tipped to prop
agate new plants. The process is
ho simple that anyone who can handle
a spade may succeed with the work.
The opportune time for tipping rasp
berry bushes Is when the long, slen
der branches incline toward the earth
and form roots on the terminals on
irrigated ground. Nature must bn
assisted In the covering of the ter
minals to insure a full supply of
plants. A spade is the ideal imple
ment to use for the purpose. Thrust
the blade into the soil and push the
handle forward which will open the
earth to receive the tips of the rasp
berry bushes. With one hand grasp
the slender cane and hold the ter
minal in the opening while the spade
is drawn out with the other. The
soil will immediately fill the cavity
which should be firmly packed with
the foot to keep the branch in the
new home, where roots will soon form
on each and every lateral twig or
terminal thus covered. These root
ed ends will become independent of
the parent plants as soon as they
take food for growth from the soil.
However, it is best to leave them
undisturbed until they are needed for
planting next spring. If a large num
ber of plants are desired the parent
busbes should be pinched back to
about three feet when the growth'is
well established. This treatment will
produce a large number of lateral
shoots, each of which may be tipped
as suggested.
To Make Arid Lands Fertile.
The main idea of irrigation is to
make arid lands fertile. The attend
ant result has far greater interest to
the United States. For the cherished
thought of a nation of home owners Is
getting steady encouragement wher
ever this work is being pushed.
The word irrigation is full of mean
ing to the people of certain of
the western states. Its story Is
told in stages. There is hopefulness
ns the project is presented. There
is development as its effects begin to
appear. There is assured prosperity
as the desert blossoms as the rose.
And the desert is blossoming, not for
owners of vast areas, but for hun
dreds and thousands of individuals
who are carefully cultivating compara
tively small farms with most satis
factory results.
When to Milk Heifer.
A heifer should be bred to freshen
at 24 to 30 month* old, depending on
the size and condition of the heifer at
the time of breoilfag. It is held by
the best breeders that It. Is'Well to
milk the heifer at least£s|l to 12
months before permitting to go
dry. as the first period of lactation
tends to establish the length of the
lactation periods that follow. The
heifer should be bred, however, so
that she would have about two. and in
some cases three, months rest, de
pending upon the size and growth of
the animal.
Provide for Comfort.
In raising chickens for profit, do not
waste money in making houses and
equipments look like pictures, but pro
vide plenty of comfort for the birds,
and do not overlook that caring for
them ought to be thought of when
building or furnishing the house, to
the end that the work can be done
quickly and with ease.
