QUEST FOE COMMEECE
DR. FAIRCHILD'S MISSION TO
Hunting : for Food Plants Those on
South American PUlns Will lie Cul
tivated Here If Successful Our Food
Supply Will lie Increased.
Dr. D. G. Fail-child of the department
of agriculture has gone to South
America in search of new food plants ,
which will be introduced into the
United States. If these plants can be
successfully cultivated here , a revolu
tion will result in the character and
amount of our food supply. According
to Professor N. L. Britton of Columbia ,
Dr. Fairchild will make a careful study
of South American plants of all kinds
.such as can be grown in this country.
"I refer , of course , " he said , "to
plants of utilization the invaluable
commodities that commerce deals in
and which are essential to the well be
ing'and comfort of civilization. There
are vast tracts of desert lands in our
west where nothing grows , and where ,
it is believed , nothing can grow. I ex
pect that this state of affairs will soon
be changed , and that before many
years these desert lands hundreds or
thousands of square miles of waste
will be made to blossom like a fertile
"There is a vast desert in Chili , sim
ilar to the deserts in this country ,
where various plants of great use to
civilization flourish. We believe that
these plants can be transplanted here ,
where the same conditions obtain pret
ty much as in the Chilian desert of
Atacama , and these immense stretches
of unproductive land will be converted
into tracts of great fertility. From the
isthmus down to Patagonia there is a
variety of plants of immense value.
None of these is produced now within
the territory of the United States , but
they can be.
"There is a food plant known as
quinoa. This grows high on the An
des and produces a great quantity of
small black seeds which the natives
grind into meal. It serves the moun
tain men as bread food , and a very
gcod food it is , too. It is a starchy
stuff and takes the place of our own
grain , corn and buckwheat and is cul
tivated at high altitudes. This plant
is unknown in this country , but we be
lieve it can be grown everywhere in
the high altitudes in this country ,
where no other food plant will flour
ish , and also in Alaska. The introduc
tion of this plant alone will transform
what are now cold , uninhabitable ,
cheerless and barren stretches of
land into farms of great productive
ness. I myself grew this plant next to
my house here last summer , but it
didn't ripen to seeds. It does not thrive
in warm spots.
"Besides a number of other South
American food plants which can be
grown in this country , according to the
section , climate and altitude , there are
the drug and fiber plants. The indis
pensable quinine and the expensive
ipecac are now imported and grow no
where within our borders. The cin
chona bark is carried in , British or
German ships mainly from Brazilian
ports to ports in Great Britain or Ger
many , where it is ground into qui
nine powder and then exported to this
country. Now , the trees from which
quinine is extracted can be cultivated
properly in Porto Rico , Cuba and
doubtless in the Philippines. Here is
a trade worth untold millions that can
be , and undoubtedly will be , placed
within our own borders. So with ipe
cac , which is expensive because the
fierce competition for it has well-nigh
exhausted its roots. Balsam of co
paiba , tonca beans , Ferubian balsam
these and many other drug plants ,
yielding a tremendous revenue to our
merchants and a great gain and bene
fit to our people , can all be cultivated
in United States territory. New Yorlr
Religion and the Possnm.
An incident told by the Rev. V. B.
Carroll in the November Homiletic
Review makes apparent the necessity ,
in this transition period , of getting the
negro inwardly right in order that his
relationship to society may be right.
Wo were driving out one Sunday
from Decatur when we came upon a
negro , with a club in his hand and a
freshly killed possum on his shoulder.
We stopped to examine the prize , and
the colonel said :
"My friend , do you know it is Sun
day ? "
"Sartin , boss. "
"Are you not a religious man ? "
"I are. I'se jist on my way home
from church. "
"And what sort of religion have you
got that permits you to go hunting on
Sunday ? "
"Religion ? religion ? " queried the
man , as he held the possum up with
one hand and scratched his head with
the other. "Does you 'spect any black
man in Alabama is gwine to tie hisself
up to any religion dat 'lows a possum
to walk right across the road ahead of
him an' git away free ? No , sail ! A
religion which won't bend a little
when a fat possum heads you off could
n't be 'stablished round yere by all the
preachers in de univarse. "

of one mile an hour we use 800 , two

pleasant method and beneficial effects of the well-known remedy , SYRUP OF FIGS , manufactured
by the California Fig Syrup Company , illustrate the value of obtaining the liquid laxative principles
of plants known to be medicinally laxative and presenting them in the form most refreshing to the taste
and acceptable to the system. It is the one perfect strengthening laxative.
CLEANSING THE SYSTEM EFFECTUALLY DISPELLING
COLDS AND HEADACHES PREVENTING FEVERS ,
OVERCOMING HABITUAL CONSTIPATION PERMANENTLY.
Its perfect freedom from every objectionable quality and substance , and its acting on the kidneys ,
liver and bowels , gently yet promptly , without weakening or irritating them , make it the ideal laxative.
In the process of manufacturing figs are used , as they are pleasant to the taste , but
THE MEDICINAL QUALITIES ARE OBTAINED FROM SENNA AND OTHER AROMATIC PLANTS ,
by a method known to the California Fig Syrup Company only. In order to get its beneficial effects , and
toa\roid imitations , please remember the full name of the Company printed on the front of every package.
Consumers of the choicest products of modern commerce purchase at about the same price that others
pay for cheap and worthless imitations. To come into universal demand and to be even-where considered
the best of its class , an article must be capable of satisfying the wants and tastes of the best informed
purchasers. The California Fig Syrup Company having met with the highest success in the manufacture
and sale of its excellent liquid laxative remedy , SYRUP OF FIGS , it has become important to all to have a
knowledge of the Company and its product. The California Fig Syrup Company was organized more than
fifteen years ago , for the special purpose of manufacturing and selling a laxative remedy which would be
more pleasant to the taste and more beneficial in effect than any other known. The great value of the
remedy , as a medicinal agent and of the Company's efforts , is attested by the sale of millions of bottles
annually , and by the high approval of most eminent physicians. As the true and genuine remedy named
SYRUP OF FIGS is manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Company only , the knowledge of that fact
will assist in avoiding the worthless imitations manufactured by other parties.
