The progress of scieuce, art and civilization has been so great within the limit of his mem? ory that few of the present young? er generation can realize what has happened. Whil*! Mr Morton has seen this tremendous advancement in ail lines of endeavor, he hus accomp? lished the proud distinction of be? ing young at 82 He is not by any means an old man except as figures go* A reporter spent an afternoon with Mr Morion at his delightful coyntry seat, Ellerslie, upon the Hudson near Rhineback, the other day and found Mr Morton the same genial modest, retiring gen? tlemen that he tins been in all his public and political association VERY MODEST. If modesty ran be a fault, Mr Morton is afflicted with it in an ex? aggerated form. He does not like to talk about himself in any coi), conceivable way. "What," asked the reporter, ''hHs impressed you most as a public event or development for the good in the history of the United States during your long experience?" "That is rather a hard question to answer," replied Mr Morton"but while I haye seen wars nnd territor? ial acquisitions nnd scientific mar vels accomplished, the one thing that just now occurs to me as be? ing most prominent of all was the time when Cyrus Field completed the Atlantic Cable. It was then made possible for the President of United States to have almost im? mediate communication with the Queen of England. Tfiat has loomed up big in my memory, and I know of no event which has im? pressed me more." Mr Morton's name is associated with success. During all his long public career as congressman, goy ernor, minister to France and vice President, and his piivate career as a financier and a distinguished per? son of affaiis. there has been no smirch on his record. In these days when "muck-raking" is so prevalent and so pronounced Mr. Morton's name has in no way been defiled. HONESTY UNQUESTIONED. Mr Morton's political honesty has never been called into question and his influence for good in the political life of the United Slates has been so conspicous as to win the approval of all political parties almost without regard to his own determined partisanship. His record of busir.e.ss undertak? ings also, as well as his career as a statesman, is well nigh spotless. He has accomplished-it not merely by brain force, but by inherent de? sire to be honest and upright. The keynote of Mr Morton's personali? ty has not been money-getting, al? though in that line of endeavor he has been remarkably successful. He has won the esteem of his fellow men largely because he has consid? ered and treated them ai fellow human beirfgs and not as objects of greed. When the sporter suggested to Mr Morton that physically he seemed quite sf young as he did 20 years ago the former govenor of the Empire State and Vice-presi? dent of the Un Ped Sf-tles. replied "Possibly I look it, but I do not feel it. The laziness of age is on me. I feel indolent and ready lc rest." In spite of Mr Morton's declara? tion ot; laziness he is hu3y prepar? ing for his annual European trip and will sail in the course of the next two or three weeks. His interest in current events is keen and discriminating. When Mr Morton was forced to an issue and asked what message he could give to the young Ameri? can of to-dav his only reply was: ??lie llonest.,, Thousand annually bear witness to the efficiency of Early Risers.

Cheap Rates for the State Farm? ers' Institute A rate of a fare and a third-for the round trip on all rsilroads in Virginia can now be definitely an? nounced for the State Farmers' In? stitute at Roanoke on July 10, ll, aud 12.

Any person wishing to at? tend the State Farmers' Institute should apply to his local ticket agent several days in advance of the date of the meeting, and see that he has received instructions with regard to lins rate. Should any tichet agent decline-to sell at the reduced rate mentioned, the purchaser should call for a certifi? cate and bring this along to Roa? noke with him. This will fully protect him, and will enable him to get a cheap return ticket. The rate mentioned will apply on the Atlantic Coast Line, the Seaboard Air Line, the Southern, the Chesapeake & Ohio, the Nor? folk & Western, the Southern aud the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac railroads. The program for the Institute is well under way and will be published at an early dale. The meeting promises to be the best of its kind ever held in the State, aud since the railroads have made sugL a generous rate, the farmers in every part of Vir gilli* should avail themselves of the opportunity of attending the meeting. A special train will conyey all delegates free of cost from Roa? noke to Blacks-burg to visit the College of Agriculture and Experi? ment Station and see the work iu progress there which is couducted especially in the interests of the farmers of the State and fer the purpose of finding out useful facts for their benefit.

"The poor dog is tired out," said Mary as the wagon drove into the yard, and Towser, covered with the dust of the road, dropped lolling and panting upon the gras, runs a good .old story. k"'Tisii't the journey he had to take that's tired him," laughed the farmer. "He used himself up by zigzagging from one side of the road to the other, and tendiu1 to eyen thing that didn't concern him He couldn't pass a gate without running through it to see what was on the other side, nor see a hen any where along the road without feeling call on to chase her. Every dog that barked started him to barkin, and everything that moved took him out of the way to find out what it was, and where it was goin'. No wonder he's tired, "But you'll find plenty of human bein's that are traveling their lives through in just the same way.They ain't satisfied with the road marked out for diem, but watch their neighbor's goiu's and doin's, and take charge of no tnd of things they can't help nor hinder. They are like old Towser, lt wears 'em out. If they'd follow straight af? ter the Master, and not invent so rn niy extra cares for themselves, the r<>ad would't be nigh so long nor hard.

Virginia's Building. - That Virginia will be represent? ed by an adequate and beautiful solonial building at the Jamestown Exposition is now a settled fact. rhe plans accepted by the Virginia !omniik8ion for the construction of he State building are those sub? mited by Messrs Brees-3 and Mitch ill, architects of Norfolk. The ruilding will be of brick, of origi? nal colonial design with 116 feet rontage including the piazzas. 50 eet deep, and two storieg high,sur nounted with an attic. Th? first floor will contain two arge reception rooms, a very large tali, corridors with a longitudinal txis, the Governors suite of rooms, ilso the lady commissioners suite. The second floor will contain oven bedrooms together willi two ?athroorrjs, The building as de igned id a very hund-tome one aud i to be peimainent. The decision if the Virginia Commission was eachcd by a process cf elimination adi of the designs shown being oted upon, the one received the owest number of yotes heing elim nated until the final decision was ecorded. The choice was a diffi ult one, as all of the designs sub? mited were meritorious and at ractive. The work of eiamina ion and decision occupied the Jommission for the better part of day. In addition lo Governor Swanson, he Virginia commission consists f slate Sen W W Sale, of Norfolk )ol CF Dav, of Smithfield; Hon It V. Withers, of Fansemond, Col. A. 1 Bowman, of Salem; W W Baker f Chesterfield and Nat Erly, of ireene Co. Messrs Sale, Day and dithers constitute the building ommittee.. The architects were asked to sub riginal designs or a reproduction f an historic Virginia building of olonial- architecture, but it was nggested to them that the prefer nce of the building committee in lined toward a structure of origil al design, the building to be a tructure of colonial architecture, n accordance with this view all ol lie architects submitted original Ians and designs. The terms on which architects ere invited to compete called for lie erection of a state building for irginia, the building pf which ras to be superintended by the de esigning architect. It was speci ed that, the building is to be of olonial style of architecture, is to ave both land and water fronts, t can be an original design or a pproduction.

Today the State Board of Public Works completed the assessment of the railroad property of the State, and the total assessment foots up in round figures, $177,000,000. The 'Same class of property was assesssed last year at only $30,000,000, and in 1904 at only $30,000,000. The new assessment therefore is nearly 500 per cent of the former assess? ment. In view of the fact that the total real estate assessment of the various counties has been increased about only 250 per cent it will be seen that the railroad assessments have been increased more largely than almost any other kind of prop? erty in the state. Yet the increase is not unfair as is shown by the fact that the U S census bureau es? timates the value of railroad prop? erty in West Virginia at about $200,000,000. The assessment of the stale board is therefore well within fairness and reason. The B & O railroad property is assessed at $80,000,000, formerly it was assessed at about $15,000,000. The C & 0 is assessed at $28,000,000 aud the Norfolk and Western at $29,000,000. Both were preyiously assessed between five and six mil? lions The board has yet to take up the assessments of the telegraph and telephone companies, express com? panies, pipe and car line.s. Tin work will be completed in about a week and will doubtless show the same proportionate results as V. i railroad assessments have. Homemade Clothes For Yale Hen. I have the letter at home ill which my great-grandfather Richard Hal. wrote to his sons, Enoch and Nath? an, who were students at Yale Col? lege, to instruct them about their new winter's clothing. He and their brothers, their motlier and their sis ters had all been at work for the cloth, and now he says if one of them can get leaye to ride over from New-Haven to Coventry he can pe measured for the wihter out? fit for both and the clothes shall be made ready on the farm. Ah, me! let the young gentlemen at New Haven rejoice that their eager studies of eyolution and the corre? lation of forces, of the nice distinc? tion between the optative and the subjunctive, and more im? portant yet, the rights and the du? ties of a shortstop in baseball, need not now be interrupted for three days while one goes to his mother mid is measured for his clothes ? Dr Edward Everett Hale in Wo man's Home Companion for June RENT PAYS FOR LAND. Fertile Sections Of The South? west, Where Land Sells For $15 And Rents For $5 Per Acre. One of the remarkable things about eastern Arkansas and north Louisiana is the fact that cleared lands rent for $5 per acre cash, and can be bought for $7.50 to $15 per acre. It costs from $6 to $10 an acre to clear it. Other improve? ments necessary ave sligrvj and in? expensive. The soil is rich alluvial, or made. It produces a bale of cotton per ac:e, worth $45 to $60. This ac? counts for its high rental valjje. Other crops, such as corn, small grains, granes. yegetable and fruit thrive as well. Alfalfa yields 4 to 6 cuttings, a ton to a cutting, and bring $10 to $16 per ton. In other sections or these states, and in Texas as well, the rolling or hill land is especially adapted to stock rai?:ng and fruit growing. Land is vrrv cheap, $5 to $10 per acr*: improved farms $10, $15 $" per acre. The new White River country offers manv opportunities 'for se tiers.

"hose That Produce Butter and Milk, Regardless of Markings. In this age of progress it ls sur? mising how few breeders of pure red cattle are keeping records of ach animal so they will know the ows that are producing the most ailk and but?3f fat. Men of ex erience must admit they cannot tell ow rich milk is simply by looking t it; neither can they measure the uantity the cow gives with their yes. We must say there are a few len who .are keeping records of their erds, but then: are still too many ho are breeding their animals sim ly on pedigree and breed character? ises. They pay fabulous sums for res and purchase many expensive dws, but still think they cannot af )rd to spend the time for finding ut just how much milk and butter it their animals are capable of pro ucing. Is lt practical to purchase xpenslve cattle and breed for them hen no one knows whether they are ipable of producing even 200 pounda f butter fat in a year? Will it not ay to spend some time to know hether your most expensive cow ls ipable of producing 200 to 400 ounds of butter in. a year? It will ot cost a man more than three dol irs in time, per cow to have a com lete record for a whole year of what hie is doing. What folly it is to retain animala i the herd simply because they ara ure bred and conform to breed char cteristics when they do not produce 8 much as the so-called scrub. Will ie time ever come when the breed rs of dairy stock will refuse to be overned so much by fads and say, We want a dalry cow that will yield s the largest profit tor the feed con iimed, whether she be black or white, r red or yellow, or giay or brindle, r a combination of all these colors." [any a gdpd performing Jersey has een turned down in the showing Imply because she had a meely nose nd many a Guernsey because her nose ras dark. The question before the dairy breed r to-day is, not how am I to retain ids and beautiful markings of dairy attie, so much as how am I, through reeding, to increase the productive apacity of the cows that I am breed lg. If we can retain fads and beau ful markings and at the same time icrease the performance of the ani lal, all well and good; but we should ansider the utility of the cows first nd then consider the fancy points. Care of Calf Buckets. Calf buckets may be kept clean by insing and scalding after each feed. lo more grain or hay should be given ian the calves will eat up clean, hould any remain uneaten it should e removed before giving any fresh .-eil. Calves like salt the same aa ny other animal. Warm, sweet milk iven in clean buckets with ac-ceaa to ara meal or kaffir-corn meal, bright Ifalfa hay, fresh clean water, salt, lenty of sunlight, shelter and bed? ing in cold weather, shade in sum ler and regularity and kindness in ?eatnent will usually insure good irif :y calves that will gain from a ound and one-half to two pounds ally. Such calves are the only things -orth the expenditure of time and loney these days of close margins i profits in any kind of business. Cantal Cheese of France.

These heeses weigh from sixty to 100 pounds nd are regarded as a second quaJ ty. Stamping Weight on Cheese. The practice of stamping the weight if cheese soon after it comes from he press is one way of getting ahead f the consumer. In this dry climate vhen a cheese is weighed right from he press, and again two weeks later . -ahrinkage of from ten to fifteen per cent, will usually lje discovered, lerchants like to handle cheese tamped with the weight, when they an sell the whole cheese to one suc omer for it saves weighing and also overs any loss in shrinkage while he cheese has been kept in the store, 'he consumer, however, gets the worst f the deal._ Shipping Milk In Tank Cars. The latest idea in transporting milk s to carry it in tank cars. The pract? ice grew up in Denmark and tor ome months milk has been shipped jng distances and recently all the -ay to Berlin in such cars. The tanks re not boiler plate cylinders, but /ooden casks, each of 210 cubic feet apacity, two of which are fastened to he floor of a covered freight car. Ve all know how the old-fashioned In cans are cumbersome, expensive nd subject to damage. By the use f tank cars for milk the cost of hand? ing has been greatly reduced and hey are being successfully used on ome of the lines in this country. * London uses about 160,000 gallons ?f milk dally.
