Voyage to Brobingnag.
The world is indebted to Swift for
his definition of greatness. ' Doubt
less many folk were of similar opin
ion when the lines were written.
The thought itself is a hardy peren
nial. But Swift said it compactly
and left an imperishable precept.
Though the lines are almost two
centuries old, they are applicable
today to James Wilson, former sec
retary of agriculture, whose death
is recorded in the news columns.
One imagines that Mr. Wilson
did not leave any considerable store
of material wealth. The biographers
are silent on this point. If we.
measure public men by their for
tunes we choose a shortened yard
stick. His legacy was to the agri
cultural workers of America and to
the sound prosperity of his nation.
Viewing it so, one perceives that it
races into the billions. For of him
it could-be said without empty flat
tery, and with statistics to back the
statement, that he made two blade3
to grow where only one grew before
in the fields of this country. States
men have left less valuable bequests
to those they served.
President McKinley named James
Wilson as secretary of agriculture,
and he served with eminent effi
ciency under three republican presi
dents McKinley, Roosevelt and
Taft. It would cheapen a just tri
bute to claim party eredit for the
accomplishments of "Tama Jim."
The fields and the fruits thereof are
of no political faith. Nor is the
genius that knows their usual needs,
anticipates their exigencies, and
makes the soil bear abundantly.
This wa3 the strong forte of the
Iowa farmer who, for fifteen years,
shaped and directed the growth of
agricultural progress in the United
States. The . lesson -of his service is
that practical men, fitted by funda
mental experience to serve, are
those to whom the portfolios of cab
inet office should be intrusted.
Wheat is of such antiquity as a
food staple that the tombs of Egypt
yield their withered grains. In an
cient China the farmers termed it
the gift of heaven. They were not
alone in this conception of origin,
for many races in antiquity have
claimed divine origin for this first
of all cereal crops. Our colonists
grew it, and shattered the tradition
that white wheaten bread was an ex
clusive luxury of the aristocrat.
One would have said that we, as an
agricultural people, knew a great
deal about wheat even before James
r:i fnir Ms nost in Washington.
VV 113U11 j. .,11
Yet it was he who introduced durum
wheat to our farmers-a crop which
i9 said to. return -approximately
$50,000,000 in annual revenues to the
northwest. '
... i. .Amiianbii of bread as
food staple, felt the sure touch of
"Tama Jim's" comprehension. In
foreign landa the beet-sugar indus
try was established and indispensa
ble, but it' was this man who 'fos
tered the sugar beet in. America and
placed the cane product in competi
tion in its own jeld.
The f oi'ebU . were merely fields on
a larger scale, to the practical vis
ionary from Iowa. He spoke for the
planting of trees on these unlovely
acres where ax and Are had left na
ture desolate. The results of his pol
icies in forest .conservation and re
forestation are but an item in the
valuable legacy) he left his fellow
citizens. To him the land of Amer
ica was a broad and fertile farm, dif
fering but little in indicated tillage
from his own acres in Iowa.
No biographer will ever compas
the worth of James Wilson's service
as secretary of agriculture. We know
that the science of farming in Mc
Kinley's time was no science at all,
when contrasted with the agricul
tural methods of today. It was the
rule of thumb system, which held
that any dolt could tickle the soil
and make ip bear some sort of crop.
Today our agricultural industry is
broadly diversified, intelligently , ad
ministered, and certain of success
in any season. Th farmer is no
longer a rural character or gaping
yokel he is a modern business man
whose factories are the fecund fields.
Results are cumulative, tier on tier,
but it is safe to say that the foun
dation's of this agricultural success
were laid by an Iowa farmer.
Two blades of grass, two ears of
corn, to grow where one grew be
foresurely there is, at a glance
nothing of inspiration in such a task.
It is prosy with hard work. But the
completed project, tall forests and
green and golden fields, illimitable
save for the oceans, mean that
America is economically secure even
though the imports of the world
were denied her. Among those
Americans who have striven effec
tively, and to enduring results,
there is no minor place in apprecia
tive memory for "Tama Jim."
Swift knew whereof he spoke. Ore

New Thread Has Fine Qualities.
A spa grass that grows abundantly
about the shores of Japan has been
!ouml to yield fiber which, properly
mixed with (ottoti, forms a thread

of all cotton. The process of remov
ing the rind of the weed, which has
been patented by Its Japanese inven
tor, Is to dry the plant, boil It in lye
for two hours and cool slowly. Wash
ing it In water then separates most of
the coverings, and the rest comes off
vhen It is soaked In water containing
lice brnn and brought to the boiling
point' The resulting fiber, after rins
ing, resembles cotton, and Is ready for
nse. The grass Is harvested in the
fall and the fiber can be prepared by
fishermen. It is expected to have a
marked effect on the price of cheap
clothing, and to improve thn durability
of fishing nets.
