It ia interesting to compare the
work done by the Department, with
the crude agricultural methods of
a few years ago. In order to talk
intelligently as to farming, today,
one needs to ba quite a scientific

smattering of chemistry ; he aboald
have a fair knowledge of geology
and be will be hopeleasly atopid if
be ia aot Informed in botany. And
bow there ia a department of vege

The analogy between vegetable
and animal life ia no new discovery.
Dr. Henry Drummond in hla great
book, "Natural Law in tbe Spirit
World," bae traced tbe analogy ;
but, long before his day, Dr. Benja
min Bush made it the subject of
more than one of hia lectures be
fore hia medical students. In 1860
a retired Alabama pbyaician a
most devot "Busbite" applied the
principlea of vegetable pithology to
hia orobard and vineyard.
: Tha writer recalla one instnnce
of remarkable success. A musca
dine vine showed eigne of disease.
The bark waa hard, the leavea were
abed prematurely and the frail
dropped from the vine before it ma
tared. The doctor made hia diagno-
aia and decided apoa "heroic treat
ment" of tbe patient. Firat there
waa copious bleedings no Baahite
ever failed to begin with the lance
-i-aad thla waa followed by insert
ing into tha Tine, near tha roote,the
most draatio .compounds known to
the maffWd mtdica. The result
waa wonderful. The plant put on
new life, grew with remarkable
rapidity, and prodaced the largest
and moat luscious trait ever seen of
that variety. Hundreds visited
the vine and partook of tha de
licious grape. Perhaps ninety aine
in the hundred of anch experiments
would have failed, but a single
success should stimulate inveatiga
tlon. One discovery leads on to another.
Each star that aoieace brings to
light is sa observatory from which
to look far more distant worlds.
We trust that the Agricultural
Department will go on with ita in
vestigationa. A hundred expert
menta may result in disappoint
nient, but a discovery in science ia
worth a life time of labor. Wa are

they never will. The spirit of
apecnlation is more general and
active now than ever, lint we
have ohaaged the farm of specula
tion. Instead of going, aa formerly,
to a Wall street, a Board of Trade
sr to a backet shop, we go to a
real estate office and bay a lot in
a boo mint- town, or take stock in
some land company, whose' Agent
lets oa all tn on "the ground floor.77
The millions that went to New
York and Chicago for apecolative
purposes until of late are now
coming South and being invested
is real improvements, and for the
purchase of property. It is the
absence of theae millions that has
disturbed Wall street. It Is tbe
presence of these millions that is
building ap Virginia, Tennessee,
Alabama, Georgia, and indeed all

tion is far more healthy and pro
fl table than tbe Wall street kind.
Money in Wall street is like water
in a rat bole, never seen again.
In real estate it is like bread cast
upon the waters It will be gather
ed again though in some cases it
may be many days hence. There
ara always risks, but a deed to a
town lot, where the boom has
'busted," is better than a receipt
for "margins absorbed.,. In every
heart there is something tbat
responds to the touch of haaard.
The almost unlveraal desire to
gamble rests upon this natural
fast. It were better that the youth
of the land be buyers of real pro.

the exhaustion of oyster bads affirms
tbat in tbe case of fixed animals like
