State boards of sgricul- lure, th most common form of oriran- ization for that purpose established by law and maintained at public expense,: are found In about half the states.' The other typical form is a de psrtmenk or bureau of agriculture, presided over by a single oflicer, usually designated aa commissioner of agriculture, la aeveral cases, however, this office com- bines a number of functions, and his bureau is known as the buwau of agri culture and Immigration; the bureau of agriculture, labor and Industry; the bureau of agriculture, atatistlca and mines, or the like. These oommls- aloners are found chiefly in the south, but also in the main, Washington or North Dakota, while in Pennsylvania there is a department of the state gov ernment presided over by secretary t mc BUetiug t ouipaules' consolida of agriculture. Finally, in Wisconsin, i T, . , . ,hft Minnesota and Iowa the place of a. board of agriculture Is filled to a great-1 er or less extent by the executive com- mlttee or board of directors or man-j agers of toe state Agricultural so ciety; and in Utah a similar arrange ment is in effect with the directors of .1. r . t : 1 1 I ..j if. I tor irsrrri ngnwujiuj ai auu jnsoiuiav- turlng society. "The principal modes of designating the members of state boards of agri culture are election by state and local agricultural societies or their dele gates, and appointment by the gov ernor, usually subject to confirmation by the upper house of the legislature. In some slates lh two methods are combined. "The members of the state bosrdsof agriculture commonly serve without compensation other than the expenses incident upon attending the meetings and' performing their official duties. The actual executive work is usually in charge of a salaried secretary chosen by the board, in some instances from its own number. The functions of this officer,' therefore, correspond somewhat closely to those of the com missioner of agriculture In states hav ing such officials. In some stntes there is both a state board of agriculture and a commissioner of agriculture who acts as Its executive officer; while in Kentucky the commi-.ioner of agri culture, labor and statistics is assisted by an advisory board." The commissioner is also preparing a digest of laws and court decisions relating to prain inspection, elevators and warehouses. NEW YORK TO PARIS BY RAIL. Loleq de Nobel, French Emarlnrer, Plans a Boate by Way ol Alaska and Siberia. Loicq-de Nobel, the French engineer who is the organizer of the project "from Paris to New York by railway," is waiting impatiently for the United States congress to grant him a conces sion in Alaska in order that he may go to Russia to demand similar privileges of the czar, which, a group of Russian financiers assure him, will be gladly given. "As soon as congress acts," said M. Nobel the other morning to the Paris correspondent of the Chicago Daily News, "a Franco-American company, with a capital of $300,000,000, will be formed to exploit the project, the practicability of which is now widely recognized. The request for a conces sion was sent to Washington October 1, where I am assured it will soon be discussed by congress. The next step will be to ask Emperor Nicholas to de termine the point where the new line shall detach itself from the trans Siberian railway. Having secured these concessions we shall go to work immediately, since there is no lack of money for the enterprise. Thus every thing depends on the speedy action of congress." M. Nobel's son, who is also a skillful engineer, is now in Alaska studying the project of making tunnel under Behring strait. Gam to Shoot tl Miles. As soon as the new trunnion hook can be received from the ethlehem Steel company work will be resumed at the United 8tatea arsenal at Watervllet on the new 16-inch gun which ia to be made for Fort Ham ilton, in New York harbor. This gun will be the largest ever made in the world. It is a breech loader, and the breech will be so constructed that a child can open and fire It. It will shoot a distance of tl miles, but in order to do so, the shot will as sume an altitude as high as Pike's peak.
