Onlv a few days before he was called hence, when within the hour of leaving for another city for important businos this patient, big-hearted man did not hesitate to make one of these chari ty call. All this without the slight est ostentation on his part, for I never heard of it only through those ministered to. He possessed a ereat sense of obligntion to the less fortunate among his people. Any helnful word or deed of kindness In their behalf, always met with an ex pression of sincere appreciation from htm. The Impression given was aj ways that of having received a per sonal benefit. Rurh n spirit dealing in the heart of renresentatlves of a people Is good to see, and flearly be speaks the future success of the race.

Rather he goes away with skill In all the various lines of his work. The story of this year's peach crop at Tliskecpp Tnotltllto will llliictrnta in detail this system of agricultural i Ul ine A88ciauon. training. In the. orchard there were I Although only sixteen years old several students specializing in fruit j this 13 the largest body, and composed growing'.' u Of - course they were I of 8ome of the strongest women of taught in a practical "way how to ; cr. in this country.--' - grow other fruits than peaches, but : Every other section having had as peaches called for the biggest har-! a President except the South, and vesting they will be taken. To be-! takin& Into consideration the work gin with the school bought 1,000 i and wrth of the woman in the As naach schrubs and set them out on ' relation from its Incipiency, Mrs. land that was good for little else, ! Booker T. Washington was unanl but excellent for peach growing. It j mously elected president. The next taught the student how to set out a meeting w..l be at Wilberforce, Ohio, oeach tree, how deep to dig, when j in 1914. . to dynamite a hole and why, what i After the close of the ladies' meet vegetables could be grown in the or-i Ing Mrs. Lewis spent a few days in chjrd and why, when-the growing Washington, D. C, as the guest of of any other product in the brchard Prof. John R. Hawkins and wife, the should cease and why. At the same Financial Secretary of the A. M. E. time there was a vast orchard over Church. Also stopped a short time there bringing forth peaches. What was to be done here and why. There was smudging to be done if the weather was cold; there was the making of solutions for spraying the trees. Moreover there was spraying for different purposes and at differ ent times of the year, each requiring a different solutions. There was one kind of spraying 'for San Jose Scale, another kind for insects, and still another kind for worms. All the theories of spraying peaches were learned, and then applied right there on the trees. Then came the peach , harvest Given a large peach crop, how shall he student save i ? The first prob - lem was that of labor. Persons were hired to pick by the bushel, but it is found that tliey raked anyihlag off the tree to fill up the measure. Thus they ruined the. harvest. Then these same persons were hired by the day, but an average number of bushels was determined upon and re quired of each picker. If a work man fell below the average for any length of time he wa docked". It was found, too. that.very small bfoya and girls can pick peaches, thus sav- ing the heavy workmen for other tasks. ' Another problem they learned to handle was that of marketing. What will a man do when his products overrun the local markets? Bteakl into other markets. How, and at what gain? All this v .V- young fruit - grower learned this , by actually doing, for this was the nation that confronted the fruit-growing division at Tuskegee Institute. Thus the student fruit grower learned how t plant, harvest, pack and ship his fruit, meeting in a practical way every problem he would meet In act ual life. The incident In the fruit growing division is typical as showing the i kind of training the Negro agrlcultu miint rrepivps Tip mppto this same happy combination of theory and ed eood music. A number or visitors practice in farming, truck gardening, i from Chattanooga, Summit and Hook market gardening, care and manage-1 f'r. Ga, were present.

For this work the In- stitute gave him certain advantages. In the first place all other students on entering school pay $10 entrance fee; the post graduate agricultural I student has this sum omitted. All ether students nav $10 ner month j for board, part of which they may .work out. The post graduate agrl- : cultural student receives $15 per month for his work. Thus after his board Is taken out he has $5 per month. In this way he receives his training and1 earns, a small wage be- sides I That good positions awalt him (Indeed there Is Jealousy arising that the agriculturist Is getting over paid) i shown by the positions held 1 during the last few years by the Tus- kegee graduate In Agriculture.
