Beadle adds that in this matter there is

most gratifying success. The regents
have requested Dr. Beadle to remain in

Prof, tiolden Travels Through
Iowa Talking to Farmer#
About Good Seed.
Sioux City Tribune: When he visit
ed Sioux City this week Professor R. (i.
Holden, apostle of good seed corn, was
starting upon a trip through the state of
Iowa, over every railroad, into every
county and to almost every hamlet, to
tell his story to 50,000 growers of Iowa
Provided with a special train of six
coaches, enjoying all the equipment
tendeied a president of the United
States iu touring the country, this man
will this spring travel practically as far
did Koosevelt in'hi* "swing around
the circle," and all to hold no two
giains of corn, one bad and the other
good, and explain to the farmers the
lifference letween the two.
Of all means of dl-seminating knowl
edge heretofore employed that placed
at the disposal of Professor Holden is
the mod remarkable. To travel over
every one of the Iowa railroads and car
ry his message to every county and al
most every hamlet, Professor Holden
cannot stop to deliver his lectures alto
gether at the towns, but invites the
farmers to fill up the two "lecturecars''
on his train, and, as the train speeds
along to the netx station, tells his story.
Arriving at the next point his audience
disembarks, another takes its place
while the professor talks from the rear
platform and tne performance is dupli
cated. Thus the apostle of good seed
orn is literally talking at fifty miles
And so valuable is considered the
creed of thi quiet little man that Iowa
railroads are donating this year a ser
vice for which they would receive
at regular charges. $15,000. And they
are glad to do it. for they believe Pro
fessor Holden when be says that prac
tice of his teaching will add $50,000,000
to the annual crop value of Iowa's corn
"By devoting winter evenings to the
simple task of sorting grains of coin
and putting them in little piles, the
bushel com crop of Iowa will
be increased one third, or lt0.000.000

"Do you believe it At Pocahontas,
la., the Allen brothers, who plant from
5,000 to 6,000 acres every year, followed
this plan. They sorted their seed and
tested it thoroughly liefore they planted
it. The result was they produced from
to 40 per cent, more corn on the same
land than they had evei produced be
fore. Funk brothers, at Bloomington,
111., did the same thing, aud reported
an increase of from 12 to 16 bushels per
acre, and all of better grade.

"I did not vote for President Roose
velt. neither did I vote for Mr. Parker.
I believe, however, that it was far lct
ter for the country that Mr. Roosevelt
should le elected than that Parker
should succeed him, and I should un
doubtedly have voted for Mr. Roosevelt
if the contest had been so close that it
was necessary in older to elect him.
Since the election the president 's cour
ageous and manly attitude with regard
to tho trusts and railroads has won my
admiration and that of the great masses
cf the American people, regardless of
party, who are the producers of the
wealth of the nation. His clear knowl
edge of men and affairs enables him to
see that there is no remedy for the trust
evils as long as the railroads continue
freight discriminations in their favoi,
and he clearly saw that it was these re
i bates and discriminations, which have
aided and fostered the trusts and which
make every effort at their destruction
impossible so long as they are continu
ed. His broad national policy and his
endorsement of Lincoln's views mark
him as a statesman of great ability and
knowledge, and if lie continues in his
present course- and there is no doubt
that he will do so—even though he has
declared that he is not a candidate for
re-election, the demand will be so great
that he will be nominated and elected
even in spite of his protests. I have
heard many men say they did not vote
for Roosevelt, but would now do so.

thousands of voters in every northern
