Country Life Commission Following is the address of Pres ident E. A. Bryan, delivered to the school officers of Whitman county, October 29th, 1910: Ladies and Gentlemen: Last winter I rode from Pueblo, Colorado, to Leadville, up the grand canyon of the Arkansas river. The scenery is magnificent—sublime, as any of you who have crossed by the Denver & Rio Grande will know. But for the first time in going over this route I was attracted by a bar rel flume, conducted for miles along the canyon wall for a water power development below. What struck me most was the ingenuity of the engi neer in adapting each part of the flume to --.act conditions where it was to be carried, always having in view economy and efficiency, but with almost an infinite variety in the means of support. Here a little shelf was gophered out of a sheer rocky wan; then it hung suspended by a wire rope, now it crossed a chasm on a specially designed spider web-like steel bridge, again It stood upon a single foot, reaching to the ground below and on with endless variety and remarkable adaptibility to the particular conditions. Not one, but a hundred problems, were solved. When I suggest to you today certain ways in which country life may be bettered, certain institutions which might well be employed under cer tain conditions, do not dismiss it be cause it does not look feasible in your particular circumstances or Invlron ment, but look rather to the realiza tion of the principles upon which it rests and the ends which it pro poses to attain. In 1908, in response to a wide spread consciousness that rural life was not all that could be wished in a country which had boasted of Its sol id foundation in agriculture, and In response to definite suggestions from men who had already given heart and soul to the problem, President. Roosevelt, without authority of con gress, and upon funds derived from private sources, appointed a Commis sion designated "The Country Life Commission," and charged it with the duty of collecting the necessary data looking to a gen eral betterment social and political, economic and educational, In rural life and rural affairs. At the head of this commission was Prof. Liberty H. Bailey, of Cornell University, Dean of the school of ag riculture, and director of experiment stations, a graduate of the agricul tural college of Michigan, known cv where not only as a high author ity on agriculture, but likewise as § wise, intelligent, statesman-like stu gatherlng data in response to lists of questions sent far and wide, seeking Information as to the schools, the freight rates, morals, difficulties, and needs of all kinds in all parts of the nation. Then dividing it into groups a rapid recognizance was made, cov ering the entire country in which ru ral groups were met face to face and the problems drawn out and an attempt made to ascertain wherever national or state legislation or ad ministration might better country life and conditions. The committee made a hurried report and necessarily left buried the mass of replies receiv ed from all sorts of people. This happened as the term of President Roosevelt was coming to a close and, unfortunately, at a period when tho strained relations between Congress and the Executive were growing worse. The upshot of the dent of country life and conditions. Another member was Pres. Kenyon L. Butterworth, of the agricultural college of Massachusett., a young, strong, sane and high-minded edu cator. Henry Wallace, the veteran agriculturist and agricultural writer of Wallaces' Farmer, was also" a mem ber. There are others, forming a strong and well-chosen committee, The first movement consisted ot matter was that Congress virtually declined to have anything to do with the matter, and it was only by par liamentary dexterity that the print ing of the report of the commission was secured at all, and then only in a very limited edition. The disappointment at this out come was great, and nowhere more so than in the Pacific Northwest. A result of this was that a conference held at Spokane in November, 1900, after an intimation that such an act ion would be well received, asked the Chamber of Commerce of Spo kane to print the preliminary report of the Commission for general distri bution. This the Chamber of Com merce readily consented to do and thus this report was made available to every citizen of the United States sending for it. The same conference of Inland Empire citizens adopted a resolu tion looking toward organized action. It was first proposed that the Gov ernor of Washington be asked to ap point, a Country Lite Commission, but instantly representatives of Ida ho, Oregon and Montana demanded the extension of the organization and so the Governors of these respective states were asked to make similar ap pointments. At a later date Govern or Hay, whose sympathies were hear tily with the movement, called a con fer! nee at the city of Spokane, and as a result of the conference, appoint ed a commission of five to act for the state of Washington. It is understood that the primary financial aid for launching such work was sought and obtained from that remarkably pro gressive body, the Spokane Chamber of Commerce. The personnel of the Commission could not have been better. At its head was placed David Brown, president. of the Hazel wood Dairy Co., a man noted for his breadth of view and his untiring interest in advancing the public interest. Mr. Brown is what we call a "self-made" man and he be lieves that ho can use his time and his wealth in no better way than in making a better and happier people. Another appointee was J. L. Du mas, of Walla Walla. President of the state Horticultural Society. Mr. Dumas was a teacher, and one of the teachers who early saw the new light in education. He saw that to direct the youth to a deep and abiding In terest in the ordinary activities of human life would result in better education and better living. His deep Interest In the new agricultural had lead him into the fruit Industry in which he has grown rich. He now has the leisure and the desire to help the state to accomplish through the new agriculture greater things than it has yet dreamed of. The next appointee was Miss Mary B. Carpen ter, County Superintendent of What con county, a lady through whose in fluence Whatcom county has almost revolutionized its rural schools. Man ual training, domestic economy, ag riculture, etc., the consolidated schools, and clustering the civic and social life of the rural community about the school have characterized her work. Mr. A. L. 'Rogers, of Waterville, and Senator W. H. Paul hamus, of Sumner, complete the list. These two progressive citizens are in the heartiest sympathy with the newel movements In education and in social betterment. Senator Paul hamus has been Instrumental in the transformation of the Puyallup val ley into a great horticultural center, one of the most remarkable of its kind In America. While the Rural Life commission recognizes that its work reaches far beyond the school, yet it also sees in the school possibilities as an in strument of social betterment that have hardly yet been dreamed of. One of Its advantages is that It is freo from the dangers of „„.,--- politics, and does not have to co? tend with the prejudices of sectartU religion, and that Is th. great | n »S ment of rendering the coning J democratic in thought, word __ deed. It is due to this perhaps that one of us proposals i 8 that, whereT can be wisely done, the uplift , J take place through the establish,,^ of so-called "civic centers- Th consolidated school at least the on solvation of the upper grades of ll joining schools shall form the J" 'raj feature One of the great^ evils appearing throughout the IJni led States has been the short tenure of the teachers in the rural schools preventing any permanent policy 5 any consistent organization. There lore in addition to a school building i large enough and adapted to the newer idea in Industrial education there shall be, when possible, a cot' tage for the teacher and his family where he shall live all the v*A round, and where he shall have as permanent a tenure, and as great an opportunity to establish a permanent home as possible. Where It can be done, on the same grounds shall be a "grange hall," as their central meeting place, where social, political; and educational gatherings of the en tire community may be held. Natur ally at such a center library and; reading room facilities will arise. To '". make a proper foundation for such a system the school ground shall con-■'" tain ten aires. Part of it should be planted to trees. A garden and plats for experimental and -demonstration-•"■ al work in agriculture would go with it. Suitable sheds for work and play form part of the plant. All this basis would make possible the newer In , rial subjects along with the old tried and true school subjects, domestic economy, working in wood and metal, elementary agriculture ! and horticulture, would thus find a; permanent and useful place. With a wise man as teacher who would spend years in one place there would be possible a neighborhood development beyond anything to which we have yet attained. Nor would this cost much more in the long run than the old system. Meas ured by its efficiency it would be a great gain in economy. Minute dis trict subdivision, with the building of school houses, and hiring inefficient teachers for schools of a mere hand ful of pupils is false economy. The reaction thus possible on the Industries of the community can hardly be overestimated. Dairying and animal husbandry, the various types of horticulture, general farm ing, would receive a great stimulus and become a pleasure rather than a drudgery. The temptation to seek a city life would be reduced and rural life would assume its best form. The mission realizes that not every community can accomplish this at the outset. We have many densely popu lated districts, particularly where Ir rigation is practiced, and it may be gin there. 1 bespeak from you a sympathetic study of its undertakings and co-operation in its work. Fighting the Jim Hill Mustard POMEROY, Wash., Nov. B—Dr. C. (',. Black, who owns hundreds of acres of farm land in Garfield county has received instructions for fight ing the Jim Hill, or tumbling mus tard, from 11. Kent Beattie, botanist at the state college at Pullman. "The best way of fighting Jim Hill mustard Is, first of all, to be careful not to bury the seeds. The ground should be disced in the fall lightly, so the mustard seeds are covered just enough to make them sprout. Then if you should have dry weather in the winter go in with a weed kil ler or cultivator of some kind and cultivate them out. "It is easy for one man to seed down another, and you should enlist the co-operation of every one in the region." Bran is a good and handy feed to have in the dairy bam, but it is not needed where there is a good supply of alfalfa. It is a good plan to give late calves a little extra food ami care to help them gel a good start be fore cold weather sets in. iRT THE MIKEWRI6HJ rgmnwiem—mv^mmimmmm—mmmmm—mmmmm——^^^ WESTERN MADE Clear Havana Cigar A Fragrant, Satisfying SmoW AS GOOD AS ANY AND TiU^ THAN MOST HIGH CLASS CIQV" north pacific surri^ co. 302-303 PACIFIC BLOCK.
