The Review of Review for December con
tains an Interesting and Instructive story
of the National Corn exposition, written by
Will A. Campbell of The Heo. It Is com
prehensive and yet concise, covering the
subject with fidelity to facts In most read
able fashion. This story Is here reproduced
In its entirety:
Now that the season's crops have been
harvested, and a new American president
elected, while the country, fully recovered
from the financial unpleasantness of the
winter of 19O7-0S, faces a prosperous holi
day se.ison nnd promising New Year, a
National Corn exposition will open at
Omaha, where, ten years ago the Trans-
mlsslsslppl and International exposition was
a Jubilee of victory at the end of th
While sentiment might have been In ;
measure responsible for the world' fairs
and great expositions held In Chicago,
Buffalo, St. Iouis. Portland, and James
town, tlure Is no sentiment In th organi
zation of the National Corn exposition, the
newest of western enterprises. It will com
memorate no victory, discovery, nor great
event In history, but It doubtless is the
formal opening of a new era In the com
mercial history of America.
The National Corn exposition is really
the first great national agricultural show
ever helil in a country more dependent on
agriculture than tin anything else. It Is a
business enterprise a necessity to ennble
the people of the great Mississippi and Mis
souri river valleys to show to the- world
the wealth bi corn and Its products; In the
fields of wheat and barley ; in the "Great
Plains" long ago weary of growing sage
brush, which have now become waving seas
of alfalfa, and in the heavy-laden orchards
Four great movements have Influenced
the governors of western states, county
and state agricultural societies, railroads,
and business men of Omaha, now one of the
largest primary grain markets of the world,
In launching the National Corn exposition.
They came in this order:
1. The "short course" In dairying and
stock-Judging started at the agricultural
colleges of Wisconsin and Iowa In 1M9 and
now developed for other lines and adopted
by Almost every state In the west.
2. The local agricultural experiment sta
tions on the county poor farms begun by
Iowa In IS03 and since adopted by Illinois,
Minnesota, Nebraska, and other states.
3. The "seed-corn special" trains started
In 1!XH by Prof. P. O. Holden of the Iowa
Agricultural college, which, during the sea
sons of 1!4, 1!, and W, traveled 11.000
miles, made 789 stops, and enabled more
than 150,000 people to hear 1,265 lectures
which pointed out to the farmers that the
seed they were planting each year should
be tested, that they were wasting one-third
of their time and one-third of their land by
planting seed that did not frrow, leaving va
cant places that cost just as much to culti
vate as If they were filled with good stalks,
each bearing twelve to fifteen ounce ears
4. The "short courses" held In many Illi
nois, Iowa, Nebraska, and Oklahoma towns
each attended by from. 200 to 1,000 farmers
who brought In corn tJ study and exhibit
for prizes, and organized county and then
state corn shows In connection with their
short courses and Institutes.
About the time agricultural interests were
aroused to the possibility of producing more
corn by practical testing and planting ot
the seed. It became more apparent that the
grain producted on tho great farms of the
United States must be Improved In quality
and more care given to the distribution of
varieties. Grain buyers In the markets of
the world, the Department of Agriculture,
experts In agricultural colleges and tran
sportation companies, have recognized that
American grain has been actually de
teriorating in quality.
Such complaints have been coming from
Europe, from official and semi-official
sources. Out of the rejection of shiploads
of corn from the fnlted States, tho shipping
Of poorer grades than ever before, and the
"gambling in Inspection certificates," or
careless Inspection, grew the demand for
federal Inspection which has so agitated
some senators and representatives In con
gress, and alarmed the grain interests to
active opposition to the measure. But the
truth remains that Europe has been taking
less of the surplus grain of the I'nltcd
States, and South American competitors are
securing a constantly Increasing share of
the European grain trade.
As this fact became apparent to those In
terested in agriculture, and, the farm lands
Increased In value year by year, It became
a question whether the farms of Iowa.

eoind he mdo to continue the payment of
dividends on such enormous valuations.
Then the grain dealers, Implement manu
facturers, railroads, and business men In
the corn belt began seeking a method of
Imparting to the largest number Interested
In agriculture, the knowledge which year
of study has given the army of experts In
the agricultural colleges and the Depart
ment of Agriculture, and the benefit of the
experience gained by thousands of farmers
who are already careful plant breeders and
scientific grain growers.
a great national agrlculturel show was
outlined by the National Corn association
which has In its ranks leading fanners of
fifteen states and of which E. D. Funk of
Bloomlnston, 111.. Is the president. These
men believed that such an exposition would
do for agriculture what the world's fairs
have done for commerce and for the
mechanical and f'ne arts; what the national
and Internationl stock shows have done for
the stock growers nd' breeders. They be-
iirru nun me competition in such an ex
position would Inspire neighborhoods, town
ships, counties, and states to produce more
and better grain: they bel'eved that the
bringing together of the corn and wheat,
oats, barley, and grasses from all the
states in the agricultural region of the
1'nlted States would show by comparison
many things about distribution of varieties
and values that would be invaluable to
agricultural Interests and to the country.
Members of President Roosevelt's com
mission to Investigate country life In the
United States and make recommendation
manager to make the exposition at Omaha
an Inspiration to the farmers, and the first
important meeting of the commission has
lieen called to convene In Omaha during
the exposition, when a erie of eonferencf
will tie held with the leading agricultural
thinker and biiinrra men whose interests
am most intimately connected Willi agriculture.
lege of agriculture, who compose the com
mission appointed by the president.
The commission will first meet. In three
morning sessions, farmers nnd business
men, ministers and physicians, bankers,
editors, and grain buyers from country
towns and communities, who will be given
an opportunity to express their Ideas as to
the needs of rural America. The commis
sion will then meet with the leading cereal
food manufacturer! of the United States,
and the grain buyers and exporters from
the primary markets. A session will be
devoted to a discussion with the editor! of
the agricultural press, and another with
railroad presidents, traffic and operating
officials, a number of the presidents hav
ing expressed their desire and willingness
to meet with the commission In Omaha.
Governors from many of the states Inter
ested will open the exposition on Wednes
day, December 9, which day will be known
aa "governors' day." Implement manufac
turers and dealers will have three special
days, as the state conventions of three
associations will meet In Omaha on De
cember 15, 18 and 17. One of the special
days which will attract many to the cor-i
show will be "agricultural college day,"
December ll, when special trains will carry
hundreds of students from the schools and
experiment stations of Iowa, Nebraska,
Minnesota, South Dakota, Kansas and Mis
souri to Omaha.
Numbered among the speakers who will
deliver addresses during the exposition aro
Dr. W. M. Hayes, assistant secretary of
agriculture; H. M. Collingwood of New
York City, editor of the Rural New Yorker;
William J. Bryan; E. S. Conway, Assocla
tion of Commerce,. Chicago; Lie Luis Gor-
ozpe, Chavcrlllo, Mexico; T. R. Garton,
Warrington, England; Samuel H. Smith,
Chicago Board of Trade, besides the g.iv
ernors of states. Including Cummins of
Iowa, Hoch of Kansas, Johnson of Mlnne
sota, Brooks of Wyoming. Sheldon of Ne
braska and Crawford of South Dakota.
Buildings of the exposition consist of the
main exposition building. Industrial hall

building, an auditorium whero a number
of bands will give concerts and speakers

Ing, containing the exhibits made by wo
men, as well as the domestio science d-a-
partment and model kitchens.
States which will he represented In the
exposition building number twenty-eight,
somo of them making elaborate exhibits,
for which funds have been secured by varl
(.us means, some appropriated by state
boards of agriculture and a large number
made by contributions of commercial
bodies. The states having exhibits aro
Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut,
Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas,
Kentucky. Michigan, Minnesota, Missis
sippi. Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North
Carolina, New York. North Dakota. New
Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota
Tennessee, Texas, Washington, Wisconsin
As the products of these states nre so
vast and varied, tho premium list has taken
them all Into consideration, and provision
has been made for each state in some way,
and while some of them exhibit largely
the products to which their soil and climate
are adapted, the predominating exhibits are
of grains and grasses. Thirty days before
the dates set for the exposition to open
4.000 Individual entr'ea had been made,
which Included -100,000 ears of corn, which
is expected to get Into tho prize winning
class and has been placed In cases, where
the "thoroughbred" corn may be examined
This corn is no mere decoration. It Is all
carefully marked and placed on shelves
which wind around a balcony In the main
exposition building three and one-half
miles of prize winning corn.
Some of this corn will win big premiums
premiums larger than those paid at the
big live stock shows on thoroughbred ani
mals. Ten ears of corn will win 2,5O0 Just
$250 per ear In the corn sweepstakes. It
will bo a poor ten-ear sample which does
not win J10 or an award medal, as more
than $50,000 Is offered In premiums. The
Indiana corn growers offer a silver com
monwealthy trophy worth $1,000, which was
secured by contributions of $10 from the
corn growers In each county of the state.
When the exposition Is ever and tho pre
miums awarded there will be a gigantic
auction sale of prize winning corn. Somo
of the corn will doubtless sell, Judging from
past experiences, at from $1 to $50 per ear,
and the sweepstakes winners will bring the
exhibitors something like $500 for samples,
besides the premiums.
But while corn remains king and alfalfa
is now acknowledged to be queen at the
National Corn exposition, wheat and other
grains and grasses will not be wanting In
the exhibits. Grain dealers and authorities
from agricultural colleges have inaugurated
a new test for the wheat, and In order to
win prizes it will not simply be declared
"good wheat" by the Judges, but It will
have to make geod bread. The proof of
the pudding will be truly In the eating, as
the wheat will be milled and the domestic
science department will bake bread from
the flour. But If the bread Is good the
prizes will be worth while $500, for In
stance, for half a bushel of wheat.
Mexico, England, Canada, Hawaii and
Argentina are the foreign countries which
have arranged to make exhibits, though
gralr s have been brought from many other
countries by seedmen and manufacturers.
Zeferlno Domlrguez, a Mexican planter,
wlic Is taking the lead In Introducing ths
scientific farming methods of the United
States In Mexico, arranged the Mexican
exhibit, assisted by Mayor Forflrlo Diaz,
1r., son of the Mexican president, and the
two commissioners appointed by the Vers,
Cruz state depa-tment of agriculture. The
Mexican agriculturists have also arranged
for the government to offer a solid silver
trophy, costing $1.5no, to the students' Judg
ing team winning the highest number of
points In corn Judging. The trophy Is a
rare specimen of the Mexican silversmith's
art, and a bust of President Dlai has been
worked Into the design.
In explanation as to why the trophy was
offered by Mexico for this accomplishment
Mayer Diaz said Mexico would soon press
Into service the graduates of the agricul
tural colleges of the United States as ex
perts to handle the old lands of that
country and he thought an Incentive should
be given to the young people In the colleges
to become competent Judges of ccrn.
From the largest plant breeding stations
of England T. R. Garton, an expert, brings
to the United States an exhibit showing
the accomplishments of twenty-seven years
of careful work and hard stu.lv. Among
the new grains which England will show
ore the hulless oats, which American mil
lers hope will lie adaptable to the climate
and soils of the United States, as such an
oat will result In a large saving In the cost
