COLLEGE INFLUENCE FELT
Prosperity la Declared Apparent
Everywhere and Only Criticism
Made Is on Lack of Greater
Diversity In Products.
BT ADDISON BENNETT.
PULLMAN. Wash. Aug. 19. (Spe
cial Correspondence.) The distance
from Moscow, Idaho, from which place
I wrote last, to this little city Is 10
stiles, the direction traveled to get here
almost due east, the road practically
leading through one vast wheat field
and such wheat! Some of the fields I
am told will run as high as 50 bushels
to the acre, the average being nearly
4 bushels. The land Is not Summer
fallowed every second year as in the
real dry farming sections, but once' In
three to five years while some of the
fields bear continuous crops for seven
or eight years.
In traversing this last 10 miles
through this wonderful Falouse coun
try J saw from the car windows but
five Summer fallowed fields, practical
ly all of the rest of the land in wheat.
The harvest is now about at its height.
Much of the grain has been cut and
lies in the fields rn shocks, same has
been threshed, and threshers and har
vesters are seen on every hand. The
combines are practically a thing of the
past, not only here but in most wheat
sections. The better class of wheat
growers would hardly take one now
as a gift, principally because they
leave the weed seed on the land and
foul the land and crops.
' College Bmildtags Extensive.
Pullman, like Moscow, is a college
town, the great state college of Wash
ington being located here, which em
braces the state agricultural experi
ment station. This Institution has
buildings worth 11,600,000, and is be
ing enlarged every year. Like the Ore
gon Agricultural College and. Univer
sity of Oregon, it has until recently
depended on the State Legislature for
appropriations to sustain it and en
large it, but now it is on a millage
basis, the state tax for its support
amounting to about one-third of a mill.
So much has been written about
this institution, which during the
school term has some 1400 students
and an experimental farm of 400 acres,
that I am not going to try to go In
to further details about. The people
of Pullman are exceedingly proud of
it. as every citizen of the state may
well be, but one ought to pass a week
or two with the faculty to write in
telligently about it. I simply made a
tour of the farm with Professor Sev
erance, chief of its agricultural de
partment, got a view of the livestock,
saw the wonderful crops being raised,
took a look over the surrounding coun
try from a promontory, so had merely
a casual and superficial oportunlty to
see what is being done.
Water Great Asset.
"Artesian water brought the college
and the college built the town," is the
way on of the citizens summed up the
theory of Pullman's existence and
growth. Of course) there has been a
little town hera for a good many years,
but artesian water waa struck some ti
years ago and the college was located
here about Si years ago. There are
now in the city limits about 20 ar
tesian wells, the depth running from
to 135 feet, with a flow from eight
to It feet above the surface. The water
is pure and cool,, the supply appar
The city waterworks use this water,
forcing it into a reservoir above the
town, and the college has a system
of its own. I might here interject the
statement that the precipitation at the
college campus is from 22 to 25 inches
a year, and further that they irrigate
none of their crops.
A leaflet Issued by the Chamber of
Commerce of Pullman gives this brief
synopsis of the city's advantages:
"Pullman is a city of homes, has eight
churches and no saloons, a population
of 20i, exclusive of the 1400 in the
student body, is the geographical and
cultural center of the famous Palouse
country, ia located 85 miles south of
Spokane at a junction of the O.-W R.
Jb N. and Northern Pacific railways,
ia on the south fork of the Falouse
River, is a city with electric lights, ar
tesian water, macadamized streets and
a modern sewer system, is the home
of the State Agricultural Experiment
Station, home of the State College of
Washington, has $45,000 invested in
public school plants, 604 pupils, 147 in
high school, percentage of total enroll
ment attending high school, 14.14. In
New Tork City only 3 per cent.
Much Paving Done Rceatly.
This leaflet must be several months
eld, perhaps older, for it-makes no
mention of the two or more miles of
splendid hard-surface pavement and
cement walks that have been laid re
cently. These pavements are all in
the residence portion of the city, so it
ran be seen that Palouse people do not
clean up their front dooryard and leave
the backyard covered with litter and
garbage. The main business streets are
macademised. good enough streets
for any town, so the citizens think they
will do until the residence streets are
taken care of. As ths improvements
are paid for by the property owners,
and the work done on the petitions of
those who foot the bills, and nearly
every street Is soon to be paved. It will
be seen that Pullman has an enter
