"Sow the Imi4 way of getting a right economic measure of North Carolina is hy couiimi ing it m it b some other Stale of a generally simi lar character ami opHrtuuity. I therefore invite you to make a cotu Ktristi bctweeu North Carol lua and low i. They are Mb agricutiir.il Stale. "North Carolina ha ts.tnal square mile ami Iowa ,Vi,ntMi; North Carolina baa nearly two million people; Iowa nearly two ami a quarter lllllliollS. 'When we come to nil cilucalioiial comparison of the two Stales, Iowa li.utlif U'tter of us. Of childreu from . to ! year of age North Cirdiua h.is;til percent, at school: Iowa hastiT tier rent. Of children from 10 to 1 1 yearn North Carolina ha ! tier eetit.; Iowa !! imt cent Ittit the progrcsit made in popular education in twenty year in much to our rreilit very much to our credit, lhe descending black line of il literaiy hax comedown from -is per eeut in I.vwt to 2s per cent. Ivhi a wonderful record to the everlasting glory of the North Carolina school -master, school mistress, school agitator, ami to the nudyiiig credit or an awakened people. 1 Ins w one of the most creditable chap tera in the recent history of any commonwealth or of any country. ''So luut'h for these general item in the comparison. Now, let us look at the imlustrial Uillerence between tltesetwo rural State. Sixty four H-r eent. ot the person ho woik in North Carolinu work on farm; forty -seven ier cent, iu Iowa. We have more farm workers in North Carolina than they have in Iowa. Itnt iu trade nml IransiHirta tion they have more ticrsons engaged than we have. In manufactures each State has approximately the same Iowa having a few more. In each State aUntl tiie same numlier are engaged iu domestic and H'roual service. We have a few more servants than they have. Itnt iu pro fcsnional service the lowans have many more. That is, they have more lawyers, prenchcrs, doctors, editors, etc. The main facts are that in a general way the number of x-isons engaged in manufacture are the Maine in each State and the number engaged iu finning. They have a few more worker iu factories anil in shops; we have more farmers and farm laborers. 'Now to consider farming for a moment although we have more farm workers and very nearly as large nn area, their farm product are every year worth more than four times as much us our are w orth. "Not only are their farm pnsluct worth more than four time ns much as ours; hut their farm pros-rly is worth eight time a much as ours. Our farm property has increased fifty er cent, in twenty years; theiis hits increased one hundred and fifty icr cent. It is two and a half times as great as it was twenty years ago. "What ha caused this difference? We have rich html. Klsc our Immigration Bureau and our Agricultural m-partincnt have many sins of misstatement to answer for. We have a grealer diversity of soil than the lowans. We are as near market a they are. We grow some great staples that they cannot grow such its cotton and tobacco and I ice. "The key to the dilfcrcuce i the elliciency iu labor. "The average income of farm worker in North Carolina is $1 Hi a year, urn iu Iowa ?l 1 a year. Iu other words a farm worker iu Iowa makes, earns and gels nearly four times as much as a farm worker iu North Carolina. Iu other words, he is four times us capable a man four time as good at his business. "Thai' the whole story. It' the dillerenee tat ween the men lie hi ml the plows. "Now, how have the lowans made their procrty eight time as valuable a our, their farm products four time us valuable, and their income for farm worker nearly four time a great as the income of our farm workcrsf That i the lesson for lis to learn. "Iu the tirst place they have letter men. Many of our farm w ork er were slave. A trained w bile mail on an Iowa farm i U-tter than an untrained negro on a North Carolina (arm. He is Is tlcr also than an untrained white man on a North Carolina farm. "They have trained their farmer. They have had agricultural KchiHils, and they ure now having agriculture taught in the public schools. "This Uthe central secret of the whole dillerenee they have trained their eople letter. They till the soil better; they know it lietter: they use moK machinery; I hey use more intelligence. "Our first duty then clearly is to train the man behind the plow. If many of the men behind the plows in Norlh Carolina were slaves, that is our misfortune a misfortune of our inheritance; but there is no other way to remedy the matter than to train them. So long as the ina n Is-lund the plow is untrained, the earth resents the insult and be comes barren; and every untrained man U'hinil the plow makes the soil of Norlh Carolina poorer make the Stale poorer make us all pooler. i he old mistake of supposing that cheap labor i a Urn-lit. "Here comes your opportunity you who an' the lirst generation of incii iu North Carolina that ha had a chance to be trained to scien tific agriculture. You have the high duly to make the man behind the plow tin efficient man. Iu doing this you will do more than to add in calculably to our wealth. You will bring also a Ix-ttcr view of life. "Although the value of Iowa' farm products i more than four times as great u the value of North Carolina' farm products, Iowa's manufactured product are not twice us great a our. If the lowans are four times us good farmers as we are, they ure not much better manufacturers. "And the average auuiiul wage ier hand in manufactures is only little more than twice a much in Iowa iu in North Carolina. You will notice that the farm woiker in Iowa get il 1 a year; the factory worker only 108. Hut in North Carolina the factory worker gets I !Hi, and the farm worker only llti. Yet every factory worker in Iowa turns out a product aliout twice a valuable a the factory worker iu North Carolina. "Our manufactures have gone licynnd our agriculture iu value. This ha happened only because we have had better trained men iu our f factories, and better trained men to manage them. "Now, gentlemen, what the lowan have done, we can do, mid more -iu manufacture, iu agriculture, in the sum total of civilization; and we can do it by the right training of men of all men, not of a few only; and we ran do it no other way. "And it is a pleasure to survey the prospect that lie before you vou who make and who urolit bv such an institution as this. You understand the right training to work to work with the hands. Ol course no man can work iroerly with hi hand without working with his brains and hi heart also. Labor by mere main strength, a mule or a donkey enirine can do. Y our institution, therefore, comes right down to the bottom of the problem of life iu North Carol ina. Oilier eoplc may fool themselves, if they Mill care to do so. Some may think that it is lietler to lie a iackleg law yer than a master cariieutcr. Some may think tliut a lazy drone of a preacher is better than a good blacksmith. Some mar think that a life of idleness, makes a gentlemen. Home may think that to be an unproductive "prominent citizen" is better than to make good split bottom chairs. Hut you know better.

In the tropic he yet gath ers food w ithoiit toil, iu our one we plant and plow and reap w ith some improvement over the know l edge Abraham had. Hut we ure yet ignorant id' the fertility of the earth. We ure iM'gintiing to learn that there is no infertile land. Men can make any laud fertile.

Ily properly heating the soil, men now make their own climate mid grow fruit in Northern latitudes thai were n little while ago thought to he confined to softer el imate. There is no infertile land.

"And we are only beginning to leant the secrets of the breeding of plants how one breed of corn or wheat may increase the value of a crop by many millions of dollars mid how we may improve the kinds of wheat as we improve the breeds of berries or live Mock. I he secret of it all is in the bcltrr training of men. The fertility of the earth and it variety of grow th we our wive are but part and parcel uf if one of the product (for the sacin poet was right when he said that we ure made of the duM ) the fer tility of the earlh remains the most interesting fact thut man liuslaceii No mil n yet live w ho can estimate the iHitential yield or any single acre of lain.

The dif f.-renee is not in the soil. It is iu Fie men. Next to the fertility of the soil is it constancy. All other occupa tion change iu relative value. Agriculture remain constant.
