U. U. Orcutt, president of tho New

told the commission that ships can be
built In England for 75 per cent less
than they can ho build here. The
causo of this difference, he asserted,
waa tho 75 tier cent more pah! for
labor In the yards of this country than
In Cieat Britain, and at the same
time (hire Is 40 to SO per cent In thu
cost of the material In favor of the

ference In cost of material. Mr. Or
cutt bald that while a few battleships
had been built In American yards for
foreign countries, he was of the opin

William J Hryan addressed the Hull
House Women's club on "The Value of
An Ideal." In Chicago. An Ideal, he
said, measures the dllTerenco between
success and failure, between a noble,
lite and a wasted existence. Kveryone,
he said, should have an ideal so high as
to keep one constantly looking up and
far enough In advanco to keep one
constantly pushing forward. An Ideal
that should be overtaken, he declared,
was a small Ideal. Political parties,
according to Mr. Hryan, should strlvo
for tho highest Ideals rather than for
temporary victory at the polls.
America, bo said, had followed an
Ideal that had taught other men to pro
tect their lights. It should labor to
achlovo an Ideal that, would teach tho
nations or the world to respect the
rights of others. A great navy was
denounced as a tax upon tho people,

Less than a score of years ago the
country along tho river was wild. The
bluffs seemed unsuitable for cultivation
and were covered only with hazel and

turkeys found retreat. Now nil Is

the hills and small fruits, among the
finest In tho world, and -with a profu

tho middle states, adorn these bluffs

tion. Fruit farming ha3 been reduced to
an exact science. Thero Is no haphaz
ard. Experience has demonstrated
that the small orchard properly cored
for Is better than a large lot of tim
ber allowed to run to seedlings. Only
the choicest varieties are grown; hence
the highest market prices rulo for
Thero Is a regular rotation of crops
on tho best regulated fruit farms. The
small fruits, strawberries, raspberries
and blackberries, cherries, plums,
peaches and nppleo follow In proces
sion, each bringing Its shower of gold
to tho producers.
Many of tho growers occupy Uttlo
tract of ten acres or less, and yet, as
the years go by, these small farmers
are gaining a compotency for them
selves and families.
At Wnthena as many as six express
ears of blackberries have been sent out
In ono day. The territory north and
