- - lows Instructions. -
.Washington, Jan. 7. "Agriculture
ii this country," says Professor Milton
Whitney, chief of the bureau of soils of
the; Department of Agriculture, "is in,'
its - infancy; we have hardly more than
cleared the ground and got the fences
up. When we settle down to the real
- business of farming and get a thorough
knowledge of the soil of each field, -as
the people of the longer settled coun
tries " of Europe- have done, we shall
have fewer" failures to Bull down our
average of poductivity. .- There never
have been greater opportunities Offered
for American farming than at the pres
: ent: time. In the East and South 'es
pecially are cheap' and productive' soils
awaiting re-settlement and re-occupa-
. tion.'Vi :-Jf.y;J;
- Dr.Whitney believes that .farms in
.all parts of the Union which have long
. since been abandoned may be developed
so as to yield generous harvests for
those who are willing to follow the in
structions laid down by this bureau.,
- ' "The work of the soil survey," says
Dr. Whitney,; "began In i very, small
way in 1899, and 6z,595 square miles
of terrrltoy ; have been -surveyed and
mapped. Over 900 different types of
soils have been mapped and classified.'
and thereby it is now known for what
crops the different types, are adopted
, and how they should be treated to ob
tain the maximum yield. Within the
next twelve years every type of soil in
the country will have been mapped and
classified.;'"J.?;tt';--"5.i w'i

Home
In New York Except
Senator Clark's.
F rick's new home on Tifth avenue
taking in the entire block between Scv
entieth and Seventy-first Streets, on
the site of the. old Lenox l ibrary, will
be the second most costly and most
nianilicent of any in the city. The
cost of the building will approximate
$3,000,000; the land has co't $:-,400,
000 to acquire, so the entire expense
of putting up a home for Mr. Frick
will be well over $5,000,000. It will
cover a plot i00.10 by 175 feet.
Work on the new house will be start
ed this spring and the contracts will
call for the completion of the build
ing within a year and a half.
The residence of Senator Clark, at
Fifth Avenue and Seventy seventh
Street, is the only private dwelling in
the city which cost more than the
Frick home. It was built at an ex
pense of between $6,500,000 and $7,000,
000. The new Frick residence will not
be a gaudy, showy affair. It will be a
long and low structure, simple in de
tails. The art gnllery will be north of
the house, facing on Fifth Avenue.
The. principal entrance to both the gal
lery and home will be from Fifth Ave-
nue. The exterior ol the house will
be in the Italian renaissance style.
The dining room will be at the
southwest corner of the building, be
hind the drawing rooms, and will look
out upon a large fountain and sunken
gardens. A wide corridor will con
nect the library and the drawing rooms.
The nrt gallery will not be as high
as the main building, and will be about
100 by 35 feet. ' It will be one and one
half stories high. This building will
contain Mr. hricK valuable collec
tion of art treasures, in" which are
Lome of the rarest and most valuable
pieces in the world.
One of the features of the sunken
garden, which will beclose to Fifth
Avenue, shut off from the curious by
a stone garden wall, will be a pool,
sixty feet long and fifteen feet wide.
This will be in the centre of the garden
and at its south eml will be a large
fountain; "
Andrew Carnegie and Charles M.
Schwab are the only persons who have
homes in New York on larger plots
than Mr. Frick.

the Craven County Boys Corn Club
which was organized several days ago.
Each teacher is being forwarded a
quantity of this matter and is a.ked
to distribute it a mong the boys ot the
schools. Although the Club has been
organized only a short time a number
of inauirics have been received from
prospective - members. '
The warm weather of the past few
days had had the effect of reviving
the spirit bfrbaeeball among the young
sters and each afternoon a number of
the exponents of the ball and bat
have been "tuning' up" on the school
campus. - The school team last season
was one of the best amateur teams in

TO EXHIBIT AT INSTITUTES
A Number of Such . Meetings To
Be Held in Thla Section '
Tills Month and Next.
The North Carolina Department 'of
Agriculture. hasYrraned for Farmers' -
Institutes to be' held at a number of ,-f
towns inthis section of the State at -i '
an early 'date. ;. The following towns
and dates have been specified for these
Institutes. Polloksvillc, January i 7;
New s Bern,: January . 9; r Bayboro,
January 30; Newport, January . 31;
Vanceboro, January j Dover, February
4j Richlands, February 5 and Trenton,
Februarv 6. ' . '
At each of these institutes premiums
iwill be offered for the best loaf of
bread and the best five ears of corn
exhibited. The bread will be a year's
subscription to some good magazine.
The following rules, must be observed:
Bought or home made yeast may be
used, but bread made by the ,"sahv:
rising" process will not. be awarded
a premium. -The following score-card
will be used : ' "Flavor, 35 points; light-.
ness 15 points; grain and texture, V0 ,
points; crust-color, depth and texture, .
10 points; crumb-color and moisture,
10 points; shape and size, 10 points;
total 100 points. Size of pan recom
mended, 7 1-z by i l-e by 1 inches.
A prize of a years' subscription to a
good agricultural journal will be given
to the farmer exhibiting the best five
ears of corn. Also a year's subscript
tion to an agricultural journal will be
given to the boy under seventeen years
of age who exhibits the highest scoring
five ears of corn. However, no award
will be made unless-the exhibit is'
meritorious and worthy of a premium.
To wiu the above premiums care.
must he taken in selecting the' five.
ears of corn. The ears should be of
uniform length,' "that is, all . of them
practically the same - length; uniform
in size; in shape: size and color of grain
and color of cob. .The corn most .be
sound and considered good seed corn
and well filled at the tips and butts of
the ears. ' '
These institutes were held last year
and although there 'were many who
took considerable interest in them ,the ;
number who attended them was ta .
several instances very unsatisfactory.',!
These institutes are of much benefit to
the , farmers' and they ara urged to
strive to mike 'them a success and to
profit from the valuable information. .'
