A bill has been introduced in
Congress for the loan of $1,000
000 for the use of the Jamestown
Exposition, which is to be held
in old Virginia next year, near
the spot where the Causasian race
first settled i on the North
American . Continent, three
centuries ago. Congress in
former years, has dealt generous
ly with the big expositions, that
celebrated events of far less
importance. The first settlement
on this soil is not only the great
est event of three centuries but,
next to the discovery, it is the
greatest in the world's history
for more than a thousand years.
Congress will only be voicing the
sentiment of the entire country,
when it makes this appropriation,
which will be returned in due

Campbell Method of Dry

plausibility of the Campbell
theory to try it myself," declared
Mr. McCombs to a Herald

"In the first place, about ten
inches of rainfall a year is all
that is claimed to be necessary.

during the fall, winter" and
spring seasons of the year the
moisture may be made to enter
the ground by a process of har
rowing and dragging. The
ground should be plowed in the
fall about ten inches deep then
harrowed with what they call the
disc harrow The surface is then
gone over several times with the
same harrow during the winter
and spring until the seed begins
to come above ground. This!
