American Enterprise Utilises the
Wire Grass of tbe Northwest.
Peat bogs unci marshes that produce
wire grass cover vast areas throughout
the northwest. Only a few of these
areas have as yet been surveyed, but
there are at least 1,000,000 acres of
these apparently worthless marshes
scattered through Minnesota and Wis
consin and stretching away Into enor
mous areas through the Canadian
This wire grass (Carex stricta) differs
from the true grasses In- having a solid
stem and in having no lateral leaves.
The plant is almost entirely devoid of
mineral substances, like the soil or peat
upon which it grows; therefore wire
grass is pithy and tough, is not brittle,
but is, in fact, a peculiarly strong, du
rable and workable fiber.
It Is less than five years ago that
really practical efforts were begun to
utilize this unlimited supply of fiber, al
though for several years previous at
tempts had been made In this direction,
but without definite results.
Growing as It does in waste places,
wire grass shoots up early and grows
rapidly and is usually ready for har
vest from July 1 to September. ; Wire
grass is harvested much like wheat. In
the early harvest a self raking reaper
is used, which lays the grass in gavels,
where it cures for about 24 hours and
Is then gathered by special machines.
Later, when the grass is not so succu
lent, It is cut with an ordinary self
binder and bound into bundles like
wheat In both cases the grass is al
ways kept straight and untangled. Aft
er curing it is put into great stacks or
sheds, protected from rain and snow.
Here the grass goes through the sweat ,
or ordinary curing process, when it is
baled Into large bales averaging about
200 pounds In weight. These bales are
hauled to large warehouses at conven
ient shiDDine points on rivers or rail
roads, from which the grass is deliver
ed as required to the various factories.
As described by American Agricul
turist, in which the foregoing items oc
cur, the harvest is conducted on an im

S pedal Training; For Wide Awik
and Ambitions Yonig Poultry Men.
Poultry culture has its fascination
for village and city people as well as
for the rural population. The matter
has also its moral bearings. It is well
for tbe lads as they are growing up to
become interested in the beautiful
birds of the poultry flocks. Something
alive, that has motion, beauty and pos
sibilities of development, will attract
and "Interest the young and growing
boy and help to keep him out of idle
ness and mischief. A suitable pet or
hobby means much in this life and may
in the end make the difference between
virtuous and a . vicious life. This
work is akin to and a proper continua
tion of the valuable "nature study" of
the public schools. The Rhode Island
experiment station has a plan of spe
cial instruction in poultry culture
which seeks to place the poultry farm
ing of that state and to some extent of
America on the very best scientific and
practical foundation. It states that
provision is made by this course, sup
plemented by subsequent practical
training in the poultry plant for the
prompt and rapid fitting of young, ca
pable poultry men for taking up the
poultry business in this or other states
for themselves or for filling positions
remunerative and honorable as mana
gers of the poultry plants of the coun
try. The poultry business, which is to
day developing wl mazing rapidity

profitless and In many -cases depreciat
ing In y,alue.
According to a recent bulletin issued
by the state board of agriculture, there
are 349 farms for sale In Rhode Island.
Many farms In the state can and
should be devoted to poultry keeping.
This industry ought also to be devel
oped as a side branch upon numerous
farms where some member of the
farmer's family has the Interest and
the enterprise to secure the training ob
tainable in this poultry course and then
take up this profitable branch of farm
ing at home. PioDerlv extended It
means the establishment of this spe
cialty in many parts of Rhode Island
as it Is already developed In the east
ern part of the state, where the farm
ers raise fowls and produce eggs in
such quantities that buyers regularly
come to the farms for supplies of eggs
and market poultry. They thus relieve
the poultry producer of the trouble of
seeking a market unless he prefers to
be his own salesman and deliver the
products of his poultry farming direct
to retail customers. Thus may increas
ing thousands of land and water fowl
be raised in Rhode Island to supply
the demands of a large nonproductive
factory population and of the inhabit
ants of several cities within the state.
Boston and New York are within easy
reach and can readily care for any sur
plus If such should result. The danger
of a glut in the market for fresh eggs
and prime dressed fowls exists only in
imagination. The export trade, now
rapidly developing, will take care of
any passible surplus for many years to
come. Several men and women have
lately come to this state to purchase or
rent rarms to be devoted to poultry
keeping. Surely it Is well for Rhode
Island that her abandoned farms and
numerous neglected acres should be
taken by native Americans and devoted
to a progressive, profitable specialty.

ON THE PLANT SYSTE!.
HOW IT CAME ABOUT.
.Eagjllsb, Prohibition -of Msrrisvgro
WltB.Si Deceased Wife's Sister.
This prohibition, which has caused so
much discussion in England, grew out of
the ancient tribal law forbidding a father
to sell more than one daughter to the
same man when the Briton was emerg
ing from polygamy and when -for 21
shillings of the present money a man
might dismiss his wife or kill her if she
would not go. As civil law it was to pro
tect the living wife and knit tribes closer
together by intermarriage.
When ecclesiastical law became su
preme, a misreading of some Scripture
text was used to pnt the sister of a man's
wife among the prohibited degrees of re
lationship. This was the act of 1541 (32
Henry VIII): "A man may not marry his
deceased wife's sister nor her daughter,
but he may marry his first cousin."
While the marriage laws of 1541 have
been altered and amended and rewritten
until they no more resemble now the laws
of that day than a, modern locomotive
resembles a chariot of Alexander this one
section has been preserved intact and
reads today word for word as it did then.
The prohibition is not known today in
any other country. It does not apply in
Scotland or Ireland only in England. It
is avoided by any persons wishing to
marry going to Scotland or Ireland or
France or the United ' States, and the
English civil law is that a marriage valid'
where contracted is valid everywhere.
The lex loci governs except in polyga
mous countries. The luw of 1541 is a
dead letter in England, except for the re
ligious who will not disobey their bish
ops, and it gives rise to uo small amount
of scandal and bitter feeling and re
ligious rancor when Smith marries his
wife's sister in Edinburgh and brings ber
back to New York to live as his legal
wife, which she is. The marriage con
tract depends ; poii the law at Scotland
and must be decided by it. New York
Hook Pabliahlnci and Bookselling;.
The old comfortable idea about a $1.50
book was I bat it was made for about 75
cents, sold to a jobber for about $1. pass

and then, neatly wrapped by itself, with
a pleasant remark about the weather

Today the same book is mude for about
50 cents, but it is sold to the customer
for 00 cents or $1. and it is handled by

5,000 copies were a giddy success uo one
begins to talk sales now much under
100.000, but the percentage of success is
no bigger, and the original risk on the
new book is equally big for success or
The practical result is that more books
have to be sold for the old profit, and the
chance of a publisher getting a good book
is no better. The "standard classics"
have to be sold by the carload to make a
profit. There are no stocks which sell
year after year. No one can afford to
carry them. The fag ends of editions are
cleared out as "remainders." The $1.50
book that makes a failure, which was
once decorously allowed to die out
through the slow sale of 1,000 copies
over a decade, is cleared out in 15 or 20
