DRY FARMING CONGRESS
Greatest Agricultural Convention Ever Held Now in Session in Colo rado Springs. Colorado Springs, Oct. 19.—Ten nations are represented at the sixth annual international Dry Farming Congress and Exhibition, opened to day in Colorado Springs. The con gress will be among the greatest ag ricultural conventions ever held and the display of dry farm products class es the exposition among the big ag ricultural and horticultural shosvs of America. International divisions cf the con gress, formed originally to develop the semi-arid districts of the western United States, have been established in Brazil, British South Africa, Aus tralia, Hungary, India, Mexico, Cana da and other countries. A conference of agricultural col lege and experiment sation experts will be held during the week, at which dry farming topics will be discussed exculsively. An international con gress of farm women, to discuss bet ter homes, as suggested by Theodore Roosevelt's country life commission, will begin tomorrow. The congress was opened this af ternoon and will continue in session until Friday neon, with ample time be tween sessions to permit the visitors to inspect the exposition. Two eve nings will be devoted to joint sessions of the Dry Farming Congress and tlie Conference of Farm Women. The international section will be addressed by scientists from many nations. It is pointed out by officials of tire congress that practicably every na tion of the world has more or less acreage for which there is either lim ited rain fall or limited moisture in other forms. To solve the problems connected with the profitable devel opment of these semi-arid lands is the work of the congress, and the exhibi tion affords ample proof that much has already been accomplished in that direction. The program provides for the dis cussion of plans for a rapid enlarge ment of the necessary agricultural ed ucation propaganda; cooperative work between nation, state and farmer in developing a higher type of methods and production; exchanging reports between nations, states and farmers, as to methods of overcoming problems in the conservation of moisture, soil fertility and of breeding more drouth resisting plants and fruits; studying the rebuilding of soils and overcom ing the diseases of plant life, trees and soil, enlargement of experimen tal methods; national and state leg islation affecting dry farming; immi gration, the interests of the home steader, and other matters of inter est. AFFAIRS AT WASHINGTON Events of Political and Public Intrest as Seen From the Washington View Point Washington, If. €., Oct. 19.—"What is tiie sentiment i.i Washington in ro g- ru io reciprocity, and its effect upon the next Taft compaigu?" Old-timers w.ll tell you that there is uu Mich thing as sentiment in Wash ington. Tue national capital is the war disk that acts as the recorder, and by means of proper mechanism it gives forth exact sounds, it it the country that has the sentiment-—the phonograph through which it is given voice is operated at the seat of gov ernment. President Taft may draw tens of thousands of people together in San Francisco, yet many a time lus automobile has passed through New York Avenue in Washington, and would hardly be observed but for the guards who always follow on their motorcycles. Nevertheless the situa tion is never overlooked here, and by devants means perfected through long years, there can always be secured a more accurate knowledge of the senti ment' and conditions of the country from here, than from any other point. President Taft and has party disa greed upon the issue of reciprocity with Canada, and when it passed con gress the democrats claimed a fell share of credit for the measure. The American farmer had kicked up a big fuss, and when President Taft had gotten as far west as Michigan on his trip, and ev: 'ontly was bent on car rying the issue of reciprociy before the people in all his speeches—then when the Canadian voters had cried out unmistakably, "nay, nay,"—well, there is no questioning the fact that the regular organization listening to the voice of the country through the M ashington wax cylinder, heard sweet and joyful sounds when our Canadian neighbor emphatically broke off all negotiations with us, and thereby re moved hte issue of reciprocity. Wash ington learns that the president's tour of the country is not producing start ling results. Everywhere Mr. Taft goes he Is being well received, and his speeches are given close atten tion. His talks concerning world wide peace are striking a responsive vnord, particularly in view of the dal ly tie ,.'s of a horrible war in Europe. There is no denying the existence of a condition of rampant insurgency in a great many stales, and among the people there is positive unrest, whioh the democrats and progressive re publicans are asserting is due to the tariff. Wall street is bitter, and it is not unlikely that the money power will "go democratic." The country uever has had much use for tire Payue-Aldrich ariff, and the presi dent's defense of it has undoubtedly worked more to his disadvantage than Canadian reciprocity or any other is sue. The future of Mr. Taft undoubtedly lays in the outcome of the struggles to begin in December over the tariff. The people are patient, and it is safe to say that the die is yet to be cast. Thoughtful men everywhere are In clined to believe that most tariff leg islation has been consummated more or less after the manner of horse trading, a good deal of it being along the lines of David Harum s style. President Taft is promising the coun try scientific revision, by means of the work of the tariff board. Many people are confident that he is going to be able to make good—he is tell ing the story of his expectations in so reasonable a manner that the people are wondering whether it is not all going to prove true. They are recall ing the vetoes of leh special session, »re listening to the administration— are also going thoroughly over the complaints and remedies proposed by the progressives. Nor are even the republicans failing in paying respect ful attention to the case of the dem ocrats. The wax cylinder on the Washing ton phonograph is playing a strange tune. It sounds something like: I'll think about this thing, and at the nu merous headquarters of factions and creeds those most closely interested are listening attentively, in hopes that they may cateli a different strain. The senatorial party en route for a visit to tlie Canal Zone, to inspect the work thus fur done and make a study of ocuditions there, with a view to legislation for the future will be away three weeks. Among he sena tors who are in the party are Messrs. Brandogee, of Connecticut, chairman of the committee on Inter-Oceanic ca nals, and Cummins, of Iowa, Bristow, of Kansas, Chilton, of West Virginia, Thornton, of Louisiana, Page, of Ver mont, and Overman, of North Caro lina. The question of tlie proper gov ernment ol the Canal Zone, when con struction works is completed, must be dealt with before the work is ended for that will be an important tiling and must be decided upon in ample time.

A few weeks ago the Agricultural Depart ment, having concluded that through ins manner of doing things, Wiley was a sort of nuisance, a movement was started to get rid of him. Nobody doubts Wiley's good intentions, but he is regarded as a sort of "blunderbuss." The result of the anti-Kiley agitation has been that the whole country has been urshing to his support, and the latest news from the Department is that he has been given increased pow ers, and is in control of the Pure Food Board, and hereafter will be able to do things in his own sweet way. The Supreme Court is againf in ses sion, facing a calendar of nearly eight hundred cases, a hundred more than last year. Every conceiveable prob lem of litigation faces the court, but there are no cases of importance equal to the Standard Oil and Tobacco trust matters which came up a year ago. Everyone will wonder just why it has not. been done before, but Mr. Hitchcock is one of those kind who believes it is never too late to mend. He has ordered that mail boxes be placed on all railroad platforms to accommodate passengers traveling on trains. The strength of the army of the United States is 77,523.

WONDERFUL TORPEDO FISH. In the river Nile, alone, lives the torpedo electric fish, a oafish of strange power. They can give an electric shook similar to that of a Leyden jar, and it is strong enough to lie communicated through a spear when they are struck under water. The shock is an unpleasant but not dangerous one to man. So unusula is tlie sensation given by the powet of the fish, that once experienced it it never forgotten—just as one trial of the famous golden grain belt beers is always remembered pleasantly.
