"Tlier In no such thing a bad soil In
th Fitted Slate. The matter la. there Ia a
poor man on tha top of good soil."
Till statement wan made at the Saturday
Itim-henn of the T.unchenn club yesterday
by pTof. Seamen A. Knapp. chief expert
of the Department of Agriculture. There
was delighted applause l.y the biggest
crowd th club baa had at such a meeting
till icir.
There are l,Of,nno,of acre of land on
which ther ia constant loaa by eroalnn. Im
proper tillage, floods, atorm, etc. Pla
cing thla loss at $1 aa aora, aa a eonaerva
tlve eatlmst ll.ono.ono.nno la lost to the
country each year that could be saved If
proper method were tiaed."
Laying down the prostioaitlon that folka
are alaveH to fashion, not only In clothea,
but In food, the expert aald:
We are not fed according to the pht
loaophy of what will produce the beat re
aulta. but according to the dictates of our
appetite. If the people of the Vnlted
States would only aave 130 a year apiece
cn their food and' clothea, which could
eall be done. It would mean that the
country would benefit 11,000.000 a year. The
avrrag llto In thla country la thirty-three
year. If properly fed and clothed, there
la no reaaon why the average life of the
Individual should not be Increased to fifty
year. The Increase of Juat ona year of
ltfo would menn a savin to the people of
merlca of IS.OOO.Ono.OOO a year."
As reined lea for preaent condltlona Prof.
Knapp said farina ahould be run on a busi
ness basla. Juat aa are manufactures, and
that the only way to teach this Is through
personal contact. Along thla line, he aald,
tli a Department of Agriculture haa put a
representative In every district of the south;
has org a nixed a department for the In
struction of boya, with an enrollment of
tt.2;!6 at th end of laat year; haa organised
girls' clubs, where the proper canning of
farm products Is taught, and haa taken
means to help farmers' wives.
Another conclusion Knapp enunciated
til that "gardens are at the bottom of
the hi h cost of living."
lie, Said tTleivVa.rA.-S&.OOO.OOO ""1'dren idle."

taught properly to till a garden.
"And this la not an expensive job," he
taJd. "If they would only give me one

strators In every county In the country. I

pumpkin, carrot and a beet than with all

The proposition to Induce the honorary
stem at Columbia, Which waa Inaugu
rated a few dayt ago by the students in
the senior class of the school of applied
science, la threatened with failure because
of the example set by John Jay, a mem
ber of th elaas of 176-1. and later the flrat
chief Justice of the Vnlted States. The
honor system depends for its success upon
th willingness of the students to report
rases of cheating to the faculty and stu

dent In Jay's student career. John Jay,

Speaking of Colorado he eaya: "We have

Oat Tariff l.eaislallon
WASHINGTON. Jan. K When republi
can leaders In congress were asked If there
Is likely to be an extra session because of
the congested condition of the calendars In
both branches they Invariably answer In
the negative. They Insist. In spite of the
extra session gossip, that the present abort
aeaainn la not Jammed more than was the
short aeaslon two yrars ago. so far as ap
propriation bills are concerned.
Comparison proves the truth of the lead-
era claim. Already the house has passed
the Indian, rivers and horbors, pensions,
legislative, urgent deficiency and army ap
propriation bills, and la nearly through with
the poatofflce bill. Two years ago the
house had passed only the pensions, legis
lative. District of Columbia and naval bills
In the aame time. It Is true the senate has
paaaed only the urgent deficiency bill, but
two years ago only the legislative bill had
been passed.
Leaders Not Disturbed.
Senate leaders are not dtaturbed by the
situation. Two years ago. thirteen big ap
propriation bills were passed In the laat
four weeka of the aeaslon. and the republi
can leaders say what has been done can
be done.
Some senators believe there has been no
particular effort made to prevt conges
tion and that appropriation bills have been
delayed to kill off general legislation. It
would surprise no one now If members op
posed to votes on the Lorlmer case, the
resolution providing for the election of
aenatora by direct vote of the people, the
tariff commission bill, and other contro
versal matters, should be victorious in their
effort. The ship subsidy bill la being used
as a buffer and there are several treaty
matters that may be brought In If needed
to kill time.
War and Means Meetluar.
Gossip among democratic members of the
house Is directed toward the meeting called
for next Friday night of the fourteen dem
ocrats of the new ways and means com
mittee. Theee will select the democratic
members of a new rules committee and
map out a program for ('he preparation of
tariff legislation.

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Jan. 22. (Special.) The
fourth week will be an easy, on for the
members of the leg'slature. Neither house
will convene .tomorrow until late In the
afternoon and an adjournment will be
taken In the house and probably in the
senate also to Wednesday morning. The
members of the house will leave Tuesday
morning for Omaha ami spend the day
there aa the guewta of the Iand Show,
the live stock dealers and the Omaha Com
meiclal club.
The session of the senate will be very
light during the remainder of the week,
because nine members those who are on
the committee on public lands and build
ings will be gone all the week on a tour
throught the state. This will block legis
lation and the upper house will not show
any great disposition to take radical action
with one-fourth Its membership lacking.

Financier Gives
Large Contribution
to Memorial Fund
Man Who Will Hot Divulge Name
Presents Hundred Thousand to
Washington Project.
NEW YORK. Jan. 22. The purpose of the
George Washington Memorial association
was advanced today when $100,000 was do
nated by a New York financier. Thla gift
practically makes sure the collection of
1500,000, which the association lias aet itself
to get before a site Is decided upon. The
donor prefers, for the present, not to dis
close his name.
The proposed memorial building Is to be
practical In plan and construction and of
the most durable character. It la to furnish
a home and gathering place for national,
patriotic, scientific, education!, literary, art,
medical and similar organization's, which
may need such accomodations It will
contain a great auditorium, and rooma for
large congresses and small meetings, of
ficea and research rooma.
It la purposed to raise S2.0O0.0OO for the
building and an additional SOOO.000 as an
endowment for maintenance so that con
ventions and societies can use the building
without charge.
Two million dollars of thia total will be
raised by popular subscription, so that the
memorial may be really a gift of the peo
ple, and the association Is not encouraging
further big individual donations.

"God Manifest at the Land Show" was
the subject of a most forceful sermon
preached yesterday morning by Rev. J. E.
Hummon, pastor of the Kountze Memorial
church. He took for hla aubject. Psalms
111: i. "The works of the Lord are great,
sought out of all of them that have
pleasure in them. He hath made hla won
derful works to be remembered. He hath
allowed his people the power of his works.''
"Every child of God should rejoice In
the coming to our city of the represent
atives of the soil In th various parts of
this great land," said Mr. Hummon, "and
accordingly should congratulate the enter
prising press. The Omaha Bee and Twen
tieth Century Farmer, for the thoughtful
consideration of that sphere of life and Its
opportunities which at tnia time Is at
tracting the attention of almost our en
tire population. Every man who has 2o
cents should see the Land Show and if
you do not havu It and borrowing ia not
agalnat your principle of finance, make a
loan but by all means see the Land Show.
"t personally have no time for the aver
age show. A great deal of nonsence and
worthless stuff Is brought before the In
dulgent publlo and often out of sympathy
rather than Interest la supported. But
this Institution which at preaent la the
talk of our city, and which Is commanding
the attention of our cttlsenshlp as well as
the cltlienshlp of men and women from a
distance, ia moat worthy worthy of the
thorough support and diligent atudy of
every thinking man. I commend this dis
play of the product of the soil and the men
whose labor and toll has made It possible
to your thoughtful consideration.
"Now, methlnks I hear someone say our
pastor Is advertising the I -and Show this
morning Instead of preaching the gospel.
And It may be that aome will go away from
this place 'his morning with the thought
that ou, time has been misspent. But
God haa put It into my mind to call at

marked. ' - -
"Horry f Interrogated a Jesting visitor at
his side. '... ,
"Not a hit of It. Best Investment ver,"
answered Mr. Walters., "We'll get it back
and make a profit, too; on this display in
the results that It will show along the lines
of the Northwestern."
Frank A. Wadlelgh, general passenger
agent of the Denver & Rio Grande rail
road, arrived Sunday to Inspect the Land
Show. Last night h proceeded on to hi
headquartera at Denver,
"The beat land show I hav seen." said
Mr. Wadlelgh after he had made the
rounds of the big display and was seated at
last In front of the big panoramic display
which forms the background of the exten
sive showing made by the Colorado ex
hibitors. "1 am glad of the showing that Colorado
Is making here, and I'm especially proud
of the share the Denver at Hlo Grande has
In the show.
"We owe much to The Omaha Bee for
the conception of the Land Hhow Idea,
which has made possible, this purely west
ern display, and much to the men who
have carried the ahow project through to
Ita successful consummation In the seen
laid out before us here."
Mr. Wadlelgh waa shown about the land
products display by Fred A. Khank, wuo
covered Colorado territory for the Land
Stow In the preliminary arrangements for
the showing made by the state here. Thu
railroad man was more than satisfied wltu
the big display made by hla state.
"The Land rthow and Ita lessons embody
the same alms that our western railroads
arj working toward," continued Mr. Wad
lelgh. "We are trying to Instill agricultural
education Into the minds of our people a-i
well aa to bring new people tn. No farmer
or farm Investor can visit the Land rJhow
and get away without getting a world ot'
Ideas which will bring him money and
some measure of prosperity to those In hie
circle of Influence.
"The ahow has today given me some Ideaj
that 1 will be glad to utilise In our agri
cultural educational campaign which we
are to carry on along the lines of the
Denver ac Hlo Grande by special exhibit
trains. We will have displays of products
and Illustrated lectures by specialists. We
have been working In this direction In the
Improvement of the otato crop for aome

"The Land Show Is a proposition so deep
that it will take a great deal of time to
Mil in up It's manifold benefits, not only to
Omaha, but to Nebraska and the people of
the great weM In general," s.irrl Henry
tii-iIng, president of the Ad club. "As an
Oiuabu proposition It deaervts not only tha
KitatcKl of prute, but will Miow Its Im
