Clarksburg, who now lives iu Marietta,
Ohio. ,
Notice has been received at Congressman
Sutherland's office from,
the Pension Bureau that a ponsion had
been granted Catherine E. Smallwood,
of Little Birch, W. Va., of J20 a moDfh
from last October, and that pension
due her hueband at the time of his
death was also allowed.
Talk of an extra session of Congress :
has been revived. If the appropriation

of March 4. It Is considered that Congress
will have gone at high speed.
Night sessions are now being held.

i uciv ubs uubu uo railway legislation

highest court, and nothing has been
done to "prepare" for what Is UUcly to
happen there.
However, the present talk of an extra
session Is believed to bo fathered
by the administration in the hope that
It will cause Congress toj speed up. As
a matter, of fact, it was probably put .
out by the administration when it
heard that the Republican side of the
Senate is likely to filllbuster against
the newest and lateBt revenue-raising
bill. No momber of Congress in either
branch wants an extra session. But
?the Republicans in both branches are
against the taxation on excess profits
of corporations, smalt and large. It
Is eaid that they are of a mind to fllllbuster
against the revenue-rai-ing bill
because of that item. If they do, they
can prevent it and, unless there is a
satisfactory substitution, an extra ses- ,
ston is inevitable.
president Wilson, it is claimed, does
not want an extra, session. The House
of the next Congress is either going
to ho Republican or so close that he
can't drive it as to has this one. Both
parties are claiming that they will organise
the next House.
There is hardly a chance ot this Congress
passing anything much between
now and the tlmo it ceases to oxist except
the appropriation bills. It it
passes all ot tbein in the allotted time
it will be iacky. If there is a tilllbuster
on the new taxation bill, and the
party In power doean't compromise. It
seems that there is nothing else left
but to convene the new Congress in

AID FINE AYRSHIRE HERD
Property is in the Best Possible
Stage of Development.
(Special Dispatch to West Virginian"*
MORGANTOWN. W. Va., Feb. 13.
?The most important public bene- *
factio" in tlio history oI West Virginia
has Just been made through the
farslghted generosity o? the trustees
of the Lawrence A. Rcymann estate.
As stated in tho deed, the purpose of
the gift is to promote, develop and
advance the science of agriculture iu
Its most comprehensive scope, and, in
addition, to give particular care and
attention to the breeding and development
of the herd of registered Ayr- ,
shire cattle which consi.iutes a part
r?P flin irlft
The real estate involved in this
transfer consists of 931.25 acres of
land located on Capon River, Hardy
county, West Virginia. Most of this i
tract is fertile land equipped with the
necssary farm buildings. In addition
to the farms transferred to the i
Exprlment .Station, there Is included <
one of the oest Ayrshire herds In tnc
country, consisting of 76 cows, 3 mature
bulls, and 13 calves, all registered
or eligible to registration; a liberal
amount of farm machinery and ;
equipment, including work animals;
and a "hecse factory recently con- :
Btructed for the purpose of manufac- <
turing cheese from the milk produc- ;
ed by the herd and the herds of
neighboring farmers. i
As stated in the deed of gift, the i
late Law r nee A. Reymann was, at
tho time of liis decease, at the age of i
32 years, in possession of a large and i
valuable herd of pure bred registered I
Ayrshire cattle, whicli for type and
production was recognized as one of I
the leading Ayrshire herds In the
United States, the assembling of .
which herd was the direct result of i
MiSsJteymann's expert knowledge of ;
this breed of dairy cattle, acquired :
by years of careful observation and i
close study. It waB well known that !
bo keen and deep was the interest of i
Mr. Reymann in the promotion, development.
and advancement of this i
herd that this was regarded as his
lues worn. At me lime 01 ills decease.
lie had succeeded iu gathering i
iogcther a herd containing the most i
Lotcd strains of Scotch and American ;
bred Ayrshires, and only time was re- :
quired to verily the wisdom of his
selection. !
In direct connection and associated
with the breediag and uevelopmont i
of Ayrshire cow (which Mr. HoyLinnn
believed by her nature, habits ,
end surroundings in lier native land ]
lo be better adapted to the typogrn- i
phy, climate and other natural condi- i
tions of West Virginia than any other i
breed) he had also, during his life- i
time, given much study and attention ]
to the promotion of modern and ad- i
vanced methods of agriculture, .his i
Interest in thlB direction being large- <
ly due to his desire to be helpful to
the smaller breeder of dairy cattle
and to the average farmer, and
Llirough these two source.3 to encourngo
the development of agriculture
In his native stato on a large scale.
After his life had closed, a corporation
was organized, consltting of his
father, Anton Reymann, his brothci,
Paul O. Reymann, and his three sisters,
Anna Reymann, Antoinette Reymann
and Emma Cox, for the purpose
of taking up and perpetuating
ihese two features which were so
mucli a part of the life of Mr. Rey- i
inanu. The Ayrshire herd has since
iargely increased in number, Its l
standard of breeding and production <
has been maintained, a large and val- ]
liable farm has been acquired and
stocked with a younger herd or Ayr- i
shires (consisting partly of descevl- i
ants of Mr. Reyruann's original herd i
and partly of purchases made by said
corporation), and in addition tbo ;
(arms have been sufficiently well
equipped to form a substantial basis
upon which to carry on and extend i
the purposes and objects of the corporation.
It la further stated in the deed I
transferring the property, that the
State of West Virginia, by reason of 1
Its Independent position, its capacity i
for continued existence, and in consequence
of its more complete and efficient
organization and unlimited re- J
sources, is better equipped than the
corporation to carry on, promote and
extend'the two purposes to which Mr.
lUymann bad given so much time

tnd endeavor, and therefore would
bring sooner to a larger number ol'
people of West Virginia the benefits
ind advantages which Mr. Rcyinanu
sought to secure for tnem. and In the
course of time the Ayrshire cow, bens
more extensively developed and
tmdins uer way throughout, all parts
}[ the state, West Virginia would
come to be known us the home of the
Ayrshire In this country, and also of
even greater Importance would be
the fact that through the operation
of these farms under the control and
scientific management of the Expert

through agricultural students,
who would secure practical experience

College of Agriculture nnd Its Work.
The College or Agriculture of West
Virginia University consists of three
great divisions?the Experiment Station,
the Division of Ilesldcnt Instruction
and the Extension Service. It is
the business of the Division of Jtesident
Instruction to train lenders. Ten
years ago there were only 7 students
In this work; five years ago the number
had increased to 43; now there
are nearly 200, or flvo times as many
as five years ago. Ten years ago there
were only 30 at the winter conference
for farmers; five years ago
there were only 31; this year there
were 914. In other words the work
of this division Is growing by leaps
and bounds.
It is the tusk of tliu Extension Division
to employ these trained leaders
and carry the instruction In agriculture
out to the farmers and their
wives, their sons and their daughters.
Ten years ago little or no work of
this character hud been done. The
ueare3t approach was a limited
amount or Institute work carried on
by the State Hoard of Agriculture.
Mow the system of county agricultural
agents is fully organized with
agents in 31 of the 3u counties; now
the system of boys' clubs is as well
developed: the organization of exten
sion schools of agriculture anil fat-I
Biers' institutes is rapidly extending,;
correspondence courses are offered
end specialists are at the call of .ho
farmers, with wonderful results.
The Exroriment Station, the recipient
of this gift. Is maintained jointly
by the State of West Virginia and the
federal Government, for the purpose
of studying agricultural problems to
the end that agricultural methods
may bo improved, thus bringing
about an increased production of the
land and an improvement in the ipiality
ol' agricultural products. Thia
work Is of importance to all classes
of people, as everyone is directly or
Indirectly concerned in the production
or consumption of agricultural
products. Experiments aro conducted
with reference to the correct
methods of producing plants and animals,
how to fertilize the soil and
maintain It in a high condition of
productiveness, how to select the
right varieties so as to get the largost
possible yields, how to breed animals
and plants so as to muke these
animals and plants of the greatest
rmssihlp sprvlr.p tn irtnn anri thla /1r?_
nation will very materially Increaso
the facilities for carrying on investigations
with reference to the production
of dairy products, the study of
problems in the breeding of dairy animals
and in tlio handling of agricultural
lauds. The Extension division
carries the results of the Experiment
Station to tho farmers.
This is the second very important
gift to the Experiment Station within
two years. About one year ago Monongalia
County, in which the central
offices and laboratories of the Experiment
Station arc located, presented
the University with about (JOO acres
of as good farm land as there is in
the county (together with improvements)
valued at about $75,000, for
the u3e of the College of Agriculture,
especially the Experiment Station.
These two gifts combined would sell
on the open market lor at least
$200,000, thus giving the Experiment
Station and tho College of Agriculture
as- large and as efficient a

through the Experiment Station and r!
J ne Extension Service has already h
commenced to show results far be- yond
the dreams of those who even __
ten years ago predicted great possl- v
bilitles for West Virginia. One or
two illustrations will suffice to show
the importance of tills movement. There
were !)rl boys enrolled in the F
cere corn contest in 1916, and whereas
the average corn production of the V
state (lid not reach 28 bushels per rl
acre, these boss had an averace yield
of 5U bjishcls per aero, or inoro than
twice tho average recorded for the S1
(state as a whole. One boy produced J,
more thun 100 bushels per acre, or y
lour times the average for the state.
There were 1,081 boys in the potato contest
with an average production h
of 100 bushels per acre. Tills production
is at least twice the average 2
for the state as a whole. One boy d
produced at the rate of 408 bushels >
per acre, or more than four times the =
eve rage for the state as a whole.
Many other illustrations could be ^
given, but this is sufficient to show
the possibilities and also sufficient to _
show that the Experiment Station _
and the Extension Service of tho Col- "
lege of Agriculture arc now showing ?
the possibilities witliin the statb. If j
the Extension Service could carry the
results of the Experiment Station to i
all forms of farm work, as is now i
being dono on thousands of farms
under the guidance of county agri- =
cultural agents, the increased value
of farm production with present *
prlc.es would equal more than one 2
hundred million dollars each year
for this slate. ti
These two magnificent gifts, one j:
by Monongalia County and the other r,
by the Reymann family, will make it I
possible for tho Experiment Station 1
to multiply its services many fold,
while the construction of necessary C
laboratories and other buildings pro- n
viried by the stato will bring the Col- r
lego of Agriculture of West Virginia <1
second to none.
Laurence A. lte.vmann?His Work. =
With the preceding outline of the
work of the College, of Agriculture \
the gift announced hero is of a greater
slgnilicunce. Lawrence A. Key- ?
rnann was far ahead of Ills time. Dur- 4
ing his lifetime lie was the best
friend that the Experiment Station _
had. At thut time, when the agricultural
work was in its infancy, he gave
encouragement to those in \
charge of the experiments, stluiulat- i,
Ing them by his enthusiasm to fur- c
ther renewed efforts, thus bringing <)
about a continuity of purpose which i
has meant much as affecting the vol- r
no of tlio investigations carried on at
tho institution. ,
Not only did he give of his time
and counsel, but he made donations of
considerable momeA to the Ex- c
perluicnt Station. The first dairy p
herd procured for the station consist- j,
cd largely of purebred Ayrshirea t(
loaned to the Experiment Station c
from his oivn herd and of his own
breeding. Later many of these anl- p
mals were donated outright. Among v
the animals loaned or donated was v
Moxemall, the moat celebrated Ayr- j,
shire sire over in this country. Today ,j
this bull has more daughters and r
gruddaugliters in the advanced regis- 0
try than any othor Ayrshire bull. t;
.White Cordelia, Daisy Jewess and ^
Cordelia Jewess, all celebrated animals,
were members of this first do- ~
nation. ^
Lawrence A. Reyraann was one or S
tho greatest breeders of dairy anl- B
mals that this country has produced. 8
This is a broad statement, but when g
ono recollects thut from his matings B
world-record cows have been produc- &
ed, the statement can not bo contro- a
verted. ?
In Ills hands the Ayrshire breed be- g
came plastic and ho moulded it to '0
suit his Ideals, straightening the top jr
lines, springing the ribs to give g
greater capacity for the heart and 8
lungs, improving the form of the ud- S
der and teals, all for the express pur- o
pose of producing animals great In 8
tne ability to produce milk and but- g
ter fat, of beautiful appearance, and ?
yet hardy to such a degree that they 8
would thrlvo on the herbage growing g
on West Virginia hillsides. 8
Not only was Mr. Rcymann a great R
breeder, a lawyer of recognized lead- o
ership and a practical man of affairs, 8
but he was a dreamer as well. He S
dreamed of the time when tho innu- 5
merable hillsides of West Virclnia S
would bo dotted over with beautiful c
Ayrshires, wbicli he loved so well. ?
To him a dreniu meant action, and a g
short time before his demise he con- S
tided to Mr. Horace Atwood, who has S
for twenty years been one o? the q
leading members of the Experiment _
Station stuff, his plan to provide the nucleus
of a purebred Ayrshire herd r
for eacli ot' tho six or seVen tarns !
maintained by the state at that time
?these herds to bo so fed and managed
as to bo a credit to the various
stato institutions owniug them, and
to be bred so as to be a credit to the
breed. These herds were then to act
as centers of distribution to the farmers
surrounding the various institutions.
This plan was never carried
out, owing to his untimely death, but
due to-the wise liberality and farsighted
generosity of the Reymann!
family, lids drcant may he realized
in a nay oaoecdiug even his fondest)
anticipations.
Mr. Reymann realized that as a
producer of milk for human consumption.
the Ayrshire is not to be
surpassed, and consequently lie betamo
interested in the production of
