WHY NEW ORLEANS
CITY IS LOGICAL POINT FOR
WORLD'S PANAMA EXPOSITION.
Its Geographical Position and Many
Other Considerations Mark It at
Most Suitable Spot for Dedi
cation of Great Work.
Public sentiment lias decided that
tho completion of llio Panama Canal
In 1915 shall bo celebrated with a
Great International Exposition In
"which all tho natlonn of tho world
may participate; and tho question of
jwhero this Exposition Is to be hold
iwlll bo settled by Congress at its ap
New Orleans and San Francisco
nre contesting for tho honor of hold
ins this Exposition, and both cities
have guaranteed Immenso sums of
money as an evidence of their ability
to flnanco so great an enterprise.
An Exposition worthy of tho term
"World's Fair," such as New Orleans
rtroposoc to build, will bj a great ed
ucational movement. Its success as
Buch, however, will depend entirely
upon the pcrcentago of our popula
tion who can secure Its educational
ndvantagen. this In turn, depends up
on Its location, as tho time- In travel
ing to and from tho Exposition, and
tho cost In railroad and Pullman
(arch, ure the most Important factors.
Considering these matters, New
Orleans' claims to being the "Logi
cal Point" for this Panama Exposi
tion, seem to be fully substantiated
by the following facts:
Now Orleans Ib 500 miles from tho
center of population In the United
States. San Francisco Is 2,500 miles
Within a radius of 500 miles from
New Orleans thero nre 17,500.000
people. Within tho same radius from
San Francisco there aro only 2,000,000.
Within a radius of 1,000 miles from
New Orleans, thero nre 05,000,000.
"Within tho same rndlus from San
Francisco there arc only 0,000,000.
At an avcrago of 000 miles from
New Orleans, there nro 70 of our
principal cities with a combined
population of 20.000,000. Averaging
000 miles from San Francisco there
nre only 8 largo cities, with a com
bined population of Just 1,000.000
Tho average distance of all these
cities to New Orleans Is 702 miles,
to San Francisco 2,107 miles.
Over 75 per cent, or the people of
the United States could go to an
Exposition there nt an nverage ex
pense for railroad fare of $12.50, as
against an average of $37.50 to tho
Pacific Coast; and for several mil
lions of our people, tho Pullman
faro and Dining Car expenses alone,
lor a trip to San Francisco, would
hmount to moro than all their trans
portation expenses for a trip to New

SCIENCE IN GROWING CORN

vno testing of seed corn is very lm
portunl this spiing. Not In ninny
years has tho question so closely ap
pealed to the fanner us It does now.
Much of tho seed corn saved In tho
coin holt states for this season's plant
lug Ik showing low germination and
bitter cultivation than oer will be
necessary to pioduco a big crop.
A good seed bed Is the foundation
of tho crop, or lather the llrst stone
upon the real foundation, the seed.
Presuming that the corn ground Is In
proper rotation and Hiilllelently man
mod, It should bo worked up as mel
low as a garden bed. If stalkH are on
Iho ground they should bo disked both
wnys, the rollers being ground sharp,
then follow with n spading disk, and
work the soil thoroughly four or Iho
It Ik hardly possible to spend too
much time In preparing the ground.
It should be disked three times ouch
way, making six workings beforo
When stalks aro plowed under n
good plan Is to harrow tlrst then plow,
then harrow again and plant.
The harrow should follow tho plow
closely and all plowed ground should
be llnlshed every noon and night.
Another good propitiation Is to disk
the ground four times, using n spader
the llrst time and uu ordinary disk a
week later. Then hariow tho land
after each double dlbklng and plant
close aft it the harrow. Rowo the II
llnols man says that after several
years' oxporlence lie prefers disking
to plowing. Of courso sod ground
must be plowed.
It Is also important to use the right
kind of a com planter ubo an edge
drop plnnter or one that will drop tho
exact number of kernels for which It
Is set Uu times out of 100. It should
even do better thnn that, If tho seed
has boon carefully sorted according
to size to lit the holes In the different
plates. This Is the only way to get
an oven Bland of corn. An even stand
from good need Is tho only way to
grow a profltablo crop.
Test the planter well before taking
It to the Held. Do not spoil n lot of
ground and wasto a lot of Bced trying
to find out whether your planter Is
reliable or not.
