EMPEROR WILLIAM'S GIFT . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 June 1903
EMPEROR WILLIAMS GIFT . In the broadest sense the entire country is the recipient of the great collection of casts or famous statues the first consignment of which has just reached Boston as the gift of German Emperor William to the Germanic Museum of Harvard University . No new country , however rich or enterprising , can hope to compete with the leading monarchies of Europe for the possession of art antiquities of the highest fame and value . Such tilings are not . in the market . But for the purposes of study and for culture s enjoyment casts of the world s masterpieces of sculpture are of great value ; and this new Harvard collection will , when completed , contain copies of COL . CHARLES F . MILLS . Secretary Live Stock Department Louisiana Purchase Exposition . nearly all the famous statues in Germany . The gift is a graceful and unostentatious one , well chosen to avoid offense to national pride , and fitly though indirectly expressing national good feeling toward the United ...
A PACIFIC PROTEST [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 June 1903
A PACIFIC PROTEST In these imperialistic days when the leading nations of the world are strlvng which of them shall possess tho greatest warlike resources , there are many thoughtful persons who cannot become enthusiastic over great armies and gigantic fleets . Those who love peace and hate war hope for the good time coming when nations shall not learn tbe art of war any more . Whenever opportunity offers they record tbeir protects and argue against bloated armaments . The trend ot popular Sentiment Is . however , In tbo other di rection . In a discussion in the House of Commons last week Sir Charles Dilke suggested that Britain should take the initiative in proposing to the other nations a reduction of their naval forces . The secretary of the admiralty showed that at present such a proposal would be Useless , as the leading nations were bent on a large increase in their navies . He did not consider the increase of the British navy disproportionate to the actual needs of the countr...

UNCLE SAM'S BIG RURAL ESTATE . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 June 1903
UNCLE SAMS BIG RURAL ESTATE . By James Wilson , Secretary of Agriculture . Twenty years ago the Department of Agriculture was still in the formative period . Established in 1862 , and commissiened to acquire and diffuse information of use to agriculture , its first duty was to investigate the problems which confronted the farmer and to take steek , as it were , of Uncle Sam s . rural estate . It was only in 1884 , with the formation of the Bureau of Animal Industry , that it developed into a truly administrative department of the . government service . The commission of the head of this department is a broad one . His functions are not only to investigate , which he does through a small army of sci- ¦ entists ,- but where occasion requires , to control , for which he requires another small army of inspectors and other ¦ officials . It may be said that during this first twenty years the department was mainly edueating itself ; without ceasing the pursuit of that valuable work it has ...
FIFTY MILLIONS FOR GOOD ROADS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 June 1903
FIFTY MILLIONS FOR GOOD ROADS . When Col . Brownlow , ot Tennessee , Introduced a bill in Congress appropriating twenty million dollars as a fund for national aid to road Improvement in the United States , a good many people were startled at the size of the figures . The amount , however , seems very small compared with the sum that a single state now proposes to raise and spend . The New York legislature has adopted a constitutional amendment proposing to raise and spend five million dollars annually for ten years , or fifty millions in all . This amendment must pass the legislature again in 1905 , and then it will go before the people for ratification or rejection . It can reasonably be expected that the measure will meet with popular favor . The people of New York have given the principle of state aid a thorough trial and the results have been highly satisfactory . A very important advantage that comes from state aid is Intelligent supervision ln laying out roads , selecting mate...

His success froib the first public sale of fancy poultry has been such as to warrant his continuance in this comparatively new method of selling poultry . Colonel McCracken made a marked success of the public auction of prize poultry held in connection with the annual shows of the State Poultry Association at Springfield , Illinois .

AN IMPORTANT BABY . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 June 1903
AN IMPORTANT BABY . Most Americans would be astonished if told that the birth of an heir to any European country was of any great importance to this country ; and yet the future of the United States , the future of the Monroe doctrine , and the future of South America may be very seriously affected by the failure of the young Queen of Holland to have issue . The heir to the throne of Holland , ln the eventuality of the Queen dying without issue , would be a German Prince , who , though he would be obliged to swear allegiance to the Dutch Constitution and must promise to protect the independence of the Netherlands , would nevertheless be strongly German in sympathy , and therefore could hardly be expected to make a very sturdy battle against any attempt of the German Emperor to possess himself of the little kingdom . That Germany wants Holland every one knows , and that the other powers would hardly be likely to interfere very seriously if Berlin found some excuse for gobbling her up...
