es, directly and indirectly 16,000,000
annually to carry on this work. It
reaches every state and territory in
the onion and thi Island a of the sea

Co-operation is had with the state
experiment stations, and with many

T he world Is carefully searched tor
new Tarintles of grains, fruits, grasses,
vegetables, trees and shrubs suitable
to various localities in onr country,
and marked benefit to our producers
The activities of oar age In lines of
research have reached the tillers of tbe
soil and inspired them with ambition
W know more of the principles that
Kovoin the forcee of nature with which
they have to deal. Nearly half of th
people of this counter devote their
ena.gieato growing thinga Iromtb
soil. Until a recent date little has
been done to prepare these million
for their life work. In most lines of
hnmao activity college trained men
are tbe leaders. The farmer had no
opportunity for special training until
the congress made gravis on for it 40
years ago. Uu ing these years prog
ress has been ma and teachers have
been prepared. ' Over 500 atudente
are in" attendance at our state
agricultural ool leges. Tbe federal
government expends ten millions
of dillars annually - toward this
education , and for . researuh
in Washington and in the several
states end territcriei. The depart
ment of agriculture has given facili
ties for postgrad ate work : to . 6U0
yiuog men during the last seven years
preparing them for advanced lines of
work in the department snd . in the
Tbe fa:ts concerning meteorology
life and being systematically inquired
into. Temperature and moisture are
controlling factors in all agricultural
operations. The seasons of the cyc
lones of the Caribbean sea and their
paths ate being forecasted with in
creasing accuracy,. The sold winds
that come fro.u tha noith are antioi
pated and their times and intensity
told to farmers, gardeners and fruiters
in all southern localities. t
We sell S290.U00.000 worth of ani
mals and animal products to foreign
countries every year, in addition to
supplying our own people more oheap
ly and abundantly than any other
nation ts able to provide for its people
Successful manufacturing depends
piimarily on cheap food, : which ac
counts to a considerable extent for
our growth in this direction.
The department of agriculture by
careful inspection of meats, guards
tbe health of our people and gives
dean bills of health to deserving ex
perts, it is prepared to deal promptly
with imported diseases of animals and
maintain the excellence of our . flocks
and herds in . this ' respect. There
should be an annual census of the
livestock of tbe nation .
We sell abroad about $600,000,000
worth of plants and their products
every year. ..Strenuous efforts are be
ing made to import from ) foreign
countries suoo grains as are suitable
to our varying localities.
Seven years ago we bought three-
fourths of our rioe. By. helping the
rioe growers on tbe gulf ooaet to'eecure
seeds from the Orient suited to their
conditions and by giving them ade
quate protection they now supply
home demand and export to the is
lands of the Caribbean sea and
other ice-growing countries. -
