CARROLL TO DAIRYMEN.
r - - '
Gov. D. F. Carroll.
Maintaining that Iowa land is be
coming so valuable that no farmer
can afford to feed an animal thwt is
rot making him a profit. Gov. ll F.
Carroll gave vx address before t the
Htate dairymen's convention at Cedar
Rapids that gained a warm place for
Iowa's first official in the hearts of
everyone present particularly the
dairymen It was an eloquent appeal
for better methods on the farm, and
likewise better profits, better living
ko the boys and girls will want to
stay at home and lor better roads
the latter being a proposition in
which the governor is especially in
terested. It was an address that car
ried with it conviction.
Gov. CnoII assured the dairymen
that the state is intensely interested
In the industry in which they are en
gaged, and spoke of the splendid les
Bon taught by the exhibits, particu
larly the cattle in the basement, and
felt that the men would get great
benefit from it He stated that it was
rather an unusual thing lor the state
to make an appropriation and put the
money in'u the hands of an associa
tion or the officers of an association
where thfse oilicers are not directed
by the stite and by the laws of the
late, although they have for some
lime been making appro; nations for
county agricultural stations and for
the carrying on or institute work,
"Wlitiher the legislature will feel
like repeating that appropriation."
said the governor, "will, or course, de
pend on ourselves and how you have
used the appropriation and the tenor
of my remarks at the legislature will,
of course, depend upon your report.
"The dairy interest is one of the
greatest of the state Mr. Wright, our
food and dairy commissioner, has just
filed with me his annual report, and I
hae been studying it a little. There
sire some things in that report which
I feel I ought to bring to your atten
tion. We have something like 1.000-.
3G3 mi.ch cows in the state, and
1 don't know whether the number is
increasing or decreasing. His report
Khows that the creameries turned out
about 102.UOO.000 pounds of butter last
year: the total butter production was
about 170.000.000 pounds, or about 21.
pounds of butter per cow per week If
by producing the amount of butter per
animal that is now produced renders
lis any profit whatever, practically
every pound you can add to that is
cjear gain II may take a little extra
feeding, but it is practically all profit
If it could be brought up to six pounds
per week I think at least 2 pounds
would be clear profit Is it not pos
sible to improve our dairy herds so
as to get more butter from our cows?
"I am net in a position to criticize
yoar methods, but I often wonder if
you are looking at this question in a
broad enough light Last year we
produced more than 300.0il0.000 bush
els of corn in the state of Iowa. It
is a great compliment to the soil of
this state, but I am not sure it shows
the greatest wisdom May we not be
running too much in one rut? Are
we not paying too much attention to
the raising of con.? It is not the
greatest thing "to say we raised more
bushels of corn this year than last
year unless we raised it on less
ground. The business of dairying
serves to keep the things which im
prove the soil in the soil
"J am glad that the man who just
pearanee. The arrangement of tho
building is quite harmonious in every
way. On the main floor are the officps
of the auditor, treasurer, clerk and
recorder, with large fireproof vaults
for each. One the second floor are
the superintendent's room, county at
court room. The basement is ar
ranged for assembly room, G. A. R.
read the paper by Prof. McKay made
reference to the fact that there are
very few silos in this state. When I
travel through the northeastern por
tion of the United States and up into
Canada I see 50 silos to where you
see one or where you see none in
Iowa. It must mean something. It
means that these must know there is
some benefit and some advantage in
having silage over the way we are
feeding now. It is one of the things
I think you ought to study.
"I am trying to work up a little sen
timent on another line and I know of
no people more interested in it than
you dairj'iuen the question of good
roads It means you can get your
cream to your factories cheaper and
brtter if we have better roads. This
means that your profits will be larger
and therefore 3-ou can pay more
profits to the farmer. I don't know
just how we are going to bring good
roads to Iowa, but I believe it should
be done by using the supplies we
have at hand. I was talking with the
governor of New Hampshire recently
and he told me that they were build
ing miles of macadam roads there,
and that they were getting their stone
from Massachusetts and shipping it
into the state for the purpose of mak
ing roads. He said they had stone in
New Hampshire, but they could get it
cheaper and better from Massachus
etts. If this can be done in Iowa I
think it would be a good plan, but I
believe there is plenty of good stone
in Iowa, and I believe at least some
of it should be on the roads in the
shape of macadam.
"I had a talk with a road enthusiast
a short time ago who suggested this
idea to me. We have an appropria
tion to levy a four-mill road tax. He
advised taking a certain percentage of
that and setting it aside to be used for
dragging the roads everywhere after
evsry rain. He said it could be done
for six or seven dollars a year per
mile. I was talking with ox-Gov..
Larrabee a few days ago and he said
he thought that was too high. He in
vestigated a pVce of road that is be
ing kept in shape near his home at
Clermont and wrote me that 11 hours'
work per year served to keep that
road in condition. If we can put our
reads in shape on three mills on the
dol'ar and keep them in shape on one
mill on the dollar it would certainly
be an improvement worth while. The
soil is such that it is more difficult to
keep roads good than in most other
places, yet I believe that we can get
a good deal better results out of the
appropriation and taxes than we are
"It seems to me that those things
which are most attractive to a boy
or girl by way of rural entertainment
have passed out of existence and our
country people are catching on to city
ways. I think that is a mistake. We
are talking about keeping the boy on
the farm. If we are keeping the right
hoy on the farm that is the thing to
do. Not every boy, however, born on
the farm will make a good farmer;
some of them are not good for any
thing. If you have a boy who will
stay on the farm that is the best place
in the world to Keep him.
"Don't try to osvn all the land that
borders on your land. It is against
the laws of na'ure. and you have no
business with -t You don't need 320
acres of land In Iowa. Give a part of
it to the boy and keep him at home.
Don't set him up as a poor excuse for
a lawyer or a doctor, but keep him at
home to raise a family.
"How are you going to keep the
girl at home? How much money did
you make off your cows last year?
Don't try to put all that money into
big barns. Good buildings and im
provements for the stock are, of
course, necessary, but put some com
forts into the home to induce the girl
to stay there. Henry Wallace said at
Des Moines last week that if he were
a housewife and the husband would
not put hot and cold water in the
house he would put a tent in the yard
and stay there until he did put it in.
There is not a class of people in the
state of Iowa better able to have good
homes than the farmers. He has an
income big enough to take care of
him. The farmer may rob himself by
failing to farm properly, but you can't
rob him of his farm if he has it paid
for. There is no man in the state
that ought to have a more comfort
able home than the farmer, and the
best way I know to keep the boy and
girl on the farm is to furnish them a
home that they will want to stay in.
room, storage, engine room and gen
eral utility rooms.
The people of Iowa county are just
ly proud of this structure, and it rep
resents in a measure the thrift of this
county, and the fact that they have
spent $74,000 for a temple of justice
indicated the high standard of im
provement throughout the county.
You can have gas and hot and cold
water and a furnace in your house. It
is a source of great pride to ride over
the state and see the magnificent
homes, but you can make them better.
And If you make them better you are
going to keep the children at home.
"I don't know of any one industry
in the state that is more important or
more profitable than the dairy inter
ests of the state. You can just as well
double the production of butter in this
state as not, and you ought to do it
In order to do that we must do one of
two things: We must vastly increase
the number of cows or increase the
quality of the animal. Which would
be the easier and most profitable? We
have been talking of making two ears
of corn grow where only one grew be
fore and two blades of grass grow
where one used to grow, but it is not
always profitable to pasture two cows
where one cow should be pastured. It
is profitable to get a cow to give two
pounds of butter rather than one Ynn
ought to teach the farmers that if a
cow is not profitable to send her to '
the slaughter house and put in her
place a cow that will produce enough
butter fat to be profitable.
"The reason that our cattle are not
producing more butter is because one
half of them are poor cattle. It will
not take any more grain or more care
to feed a good cow than a poor one I
want to say to you that I am trninc
to watch with more interest next year '
than I have in the past the nrosrress
that is being made along the lines !
that vou are working fnr fr tn-n poi
sons because I want to know about
it and because I iive here and am in-1
terested in it. And then I want to
know whether you were correct when
you said 'if you will give us an appro
priation we will produce more butter.'
I want to see if that Is so. I have no
doubt but what you folks get great
good out of getting together. I am in
terested in it because I believe that
the time is coming when we must re
sort to something more profitable ,
than simplying plowing corn.
"I think I am correct in saying that
every country as it grows older has
the same experience that the lands
of the country grow more valuable.
There has been a great tide of emi
gration from Iowa, so that our farm
population is actually decreasing. The
time is coming when that tide of.
shall I call it migration, is going to
stop. When these lands become more
valuable the thing is going to work
bac'.c on us and we have got to resort
to something more profitable than
simply tilling the soil. I don't know
of anything better than dairying "
PROVED HIS REMARK CORRECT
Dr John Bascom was a stickler for
pure English. On one occasion as a
student was leaving the doctor's house
he called back: "It's raining cats and
"The rainfall Is excessive," immedi
ately corrected the doctor.
Dr. Bascom then ventured down the
steps to determine the force of the ele
ments and was thoroughly drenched
by the driving rain. Hurrying back
upon the porch, he exclaimed: "In
deed, it is raining pitchforks!"
The student glanced at the doctor
questioningly, who was visibly em
barrassed because of his exaggerated
reference to the storm. In confusion
he dismissed his visitor after giving
him the use of an umbrella.
On the way home the student ran
into a projection of an awning, which
pierced a hole into the umbrella.
The next day both men were plan

doctor for using "pitchforks" and the
student for ruining an umbrella.

Oysters are one of the few animal
foods which contain a large amount
of carbohydrates. These are present
in the liver in the form of glycogen.
The oyster is especially easy of diges
tion, if eaten uncooked, or not over
cooked, as they require little cooking.
In preparing a stew, cook the oysters
in their own liquor and remove them
as soon as they are plump, and the
gills are curled. More cooking makes
them tough. The one great objection
to the use of the raw oyster is that

Recent advices from Canada, one
next door neighbour, the neighbourly
country across the boundary line,
are that upwards of ninety thousand
settlers from the United States went
into Western Canada during the past
year, most of them for the purpose of
taking up and settling upon the va
cant lands, 160 acres of which are
given free by the government, and
lands adjoining held by railway and
land companies are selling at from
nine to fifteen and twenty dollars per
acre. Even if thirty and forty dollars
per acre were paid, the price would bo
low, as the lands produce wonderfully
and at these higher figures there is a
large interest on the money and labor
invested. The ninety thousand set
tlers of last year, followed about sixty
thousand of the previous year, and for
several years the number has been
running into these large figures. There
must boa reason for it It may bo
found in the single phrase, "they are
satisfied." Nothing attracts peoplo
more than the success of others, and
the news of this reaching other thou
sands, causes them to investigate. Tho
investigation in this case is always
satisfactory. The splendid land of
Iowa, of Indiana, of Nebraska, Kansas,
Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio
and other States has risen to a high
value, and it is worth every dollar
asked for it. But there is not room
now for all on these lands. With the
ever increasing demand for grain,
there comes the ever increasing de
mand for land. Canada is the only
country on the continent in a position
to supply it. Land there that costs,
say fifteen dollars an acre, produces
on a reasonable calculation, 25 bushels
of wheat to the acre, or about $20.00.
The most liberal calculation as to cost
makes the cost to produce J7.50 per
acre, leaving a balance of $12.50 per
acre. The $7.50 carries good wages
for the farmer, and all other conceiv
able contingencies. With conditions
like this, covering the entire area of
about 500,000 square miles. It is read
ily understood why 90,000 Americans
should follow the sixty thousand of
the previous year. Canadian Govern
ment Agencies at different points in
the Union are always ready to give In-
1 formation regarding the free home
stead lands, ready to advise the set-
. tier as to the districts which would
suit him best
