Our Great Country.
The Importance of agriculture to
(be material welfare of our general
country is admitted without argu
ment. Yet when we encounter the
cold figures that represent the an
nual output of our farms, we get a
much better notion of the real extent
of the farming industry.
The Department Of Agriculture has
Just made public figures on the ten
leading crops of the t'nited States
for the. year 1910. It snows a total
valuation for these crops of $3,751,
268,000. The lesser crops and the
live stock output will raise this total
very close. It not quite, to the seven-bllllon-dollar
mark. For some rea-
non the department does not Include
cotton In Its summary, but the cotton
crop for the year Is valued at above
three-quarters of a blinn. The ae
grrga.te value of manufactured prod
ucts in excess of the cost of material
was about eight billions, which shows
the very ' close balance between the
two great producing interests of the
These figures are most impressive
when considered concretely. They
afford the basis for the greatness of
our country. Their story is an elo
quent recital of the tremendous
energies of a race whoso like Is not
known to history. If this array of
material production w:.s n unusual
showing, It would still excite serious
reflection, but it is the annual ex-J
hlbltlon of the productive capacity of
the United States. Year, after year
similar totals have astonished the
world outside, where the fecundity
of our country Is not appreciated,
and enormous as the aggregate is, It
does not by any means represent the
limit of our capacity for production,
improved methods of cultivation
and caring for crops, newer ideas In
stock raising and the general closer
attention to the care and manage
ment of farms is certain to result in
an Increase in the annual yield.-And
whllo the husbandman Is extending
his dominion over nature in one way,
the manufacturer la equally attentive
of business and active in pushing for
ward his enterprise, so that the grand
annual total of wealth produced Is
steadily growing larger and the
strength of the poople of the United
States Is Increasing correspondingly.
The wonder excited by the growth of
this country will be yet aurpassed by
the marvelous things that will be ac
complished. - .

secretary of war in his discussion of
the Panama canal under tbe caption,

way o(securlng the vital competitive

The Wabath Eeceiverihip.
The ' receivership of the Wabash
occasions no surprise to those who
had kept posted on the affairs of
that road. This culmination of a
long and tangled skein of bad
finances was to have been anticipated
when the road fell Into tbe over
seers!) I p of Kubn, Loeb ft Co. It will
not -be surprising if other Gould
properties in which these financial
overlords have a directing Interest
will be put In much tbe same status
for reorganization purposes. That
the Wabash will soon enter upon a
career of rehabilitation goes without
saying, and in order to bring this
about it was probably necessary to
declare the receivership.
Some will Insist that this is the
Inevitable result of the Gould sys
tem of squeezing out dividends at tbe
expense of the physical rendition of
tho road. Others will contend that
the present crisis is the direct out
come of the road's failure to get suf
ficient funds in the last five years.
That, however, Is merely corollary to
the former. Undoubtedly funds have
been denied for equipment and bet
terment because of a discount on the
financial management of the prop
erty. Tbe Goulds persisted in hold-
ng t othe old methods ard these did
not commend themselves to tbe
moneyed Interests, Hence, as the Wall
Street Journal puts it, the Wabash
finally found the task of trying to
'lift Itself by Its boot straps" too
much. This struggle has been going
on for five years anfi the road has
been unable to keep abreast of the
industrial progress in its territory,
while its competitors were making
great headway in larger and more
modern-rolling stock and road facil
ities. Of course, but one end was
But the Wabash is a powerfully
rich road, traversing the richest sec
tions of the country, and, under the
spur of more efficient financial con
duct, will unquestionably display re
markable recuperative powers and
come out of the receivership, as
most other roads do, stronger than
ever. Compared with other lines of
its importance, the Wabash carries a
low" capitalization per mile and, ac
cording to the Wall Street Journal, if
its present unsatisfactory capital po
altlon can be improved in the forth
comlug readjustment there Is .plenty
of margin for capitalising $10,000,-
000 cash needs of the next three
years and. also making provision for
the $60,000,000 which It will need
in the following ten year. Its chief
needs, so far as physical Improve
ment is concerned, are new motive
power and. equipment. a
The Lincoln Star reads a long
lecture based on the alleged Jury

The city council ought not to be

I know another world
Than thla wherein I stray.
And often there I walk apart.
Alone by night or day.
Alone, yet not alone.
For always there with me
Walk others, answering to my Call,
And keep me company.
Sometimes afar I go.
To realms that hold ramance;
Past ages come agln to view
And linger In a glance.
In palaces I bide.
With kings and courtiers grand, ,
Or on some famous battlefield
.'Mong mighty warriors stand.
Perchance a genii comes
And iwondrous wings are apresd
To bear me for a while away.
Where poet flights have led.
There's no forbidden land,
No plane I may not go;
A thousand beacons to the mind
Forever are aglow.
My books companions sre,
I cannot lonely be:
Their covers are the door that ope
- That other world to me.
