The Ponca City Curier prints a poem
entitled "When The Bills Come Due,"
without credit to anyone. That is not
fair. It is all right to steal from some
dead celebrity, but that poem was
written by Freeman E. Miller and ap-
peared in his column of "Oklahoma
Sunshine, in the Stillwater Advance.
However, it is an unconcious compli-
ment to Miller that Headly thought it
where it came from. It is good. It
and others such, would give Miller a
department on any New York paper.
During the past week the Osage

The movement to secure an agricult-
ural education through the public
schools of the country is steadily in-
creasing and from time to time mani-
fests itself through unusual channels.
At the recent convention of the Trav
elers' Protective Association at Spring
field, Illinois, addresses were made on
this subject and the Association voted
to present the matter before the Na
tional Educational Association at its
coming annual convention at St. Louis.
The Travelers' Association passed
comprehensive resolution setting forth
that the stability of our social and
business conditions and the prevention
or recurring periods of trade depres-
sion require that the balance of our
population should be maintained on the
land as independent home owners and
producers from the soil and that way;
should be found and carried out for
placing upon the land all unemployed
labor and transforming every "out-of'
work" into the owner of a home on the
land from which he can at all times
get a comfortable living with his own
labor. It was set forth that the entire
American educational system should be
s ) modeled as to induce every child to
be a lover of nature and of the country
and to train him toward the land as a
source of livlihood rather than away
from it: that children should be taught
to farm as they are now taught in
France and Denmark in the public
schools and that farm training schools
should be established by county, muni-
cipal, state and national governments.
The resolution further called atten-
tion to the great remaining public do-
main in the west as by far the most
valuable asset of this nation which will
furnish an outlet for our surplus labor
during this and coming generations
urging that it be reserved for real
home builders who will farm it
The Association appointed a perma
nent committee on Education, Irriga-
tion, Forestry and Land, with a mem-
ber from each state and territory to
carry out the idea of this resolution.
DESTROYED A WHEEL!
At 3 o'clock, Saturday, Col-
onel VV. A. Bauslin, demonstra-
tor for the Racine Buggy Co., pub-
lically destroyed a wheel selected
by a committee composed of citi-
zens, from the stock of W, I).
Packer. The demonstration was
made for the purpose of showing
the superior quality of the Racine
goods over any other on the mar-
ket. A good crowd of interested
spectators witnessed the destruc-
tion of the wheel and all were
convinced that the goods were
just as represented. Following Is
the report of the committee:

000,000 this work must be recognized
as one of the very large internal im-
provements of the country. Although
irrigation operations are confined large-
ly to the sixteen arid and semi-arid
western states, the eastern part of
the country must be more or less inter-
ested for several reasons. Men are
constantly moving westward looking
for new homes where they can earn a
a livlihood, or become land owners,
while business men are interested
seeing a development of the west
which will afford them wider home
markets for their manufactured pro
ducts. The changing of the western
deserts into teni of thousands of new
and productive small farms will not on-
y relieve some of the overcrowded sec
tions of the east but will stimulate
business of all descriptions, just as the
opening of the great Mississippi valley
provided a market for the Americai
manufacturer, such, as Secretary Wil-
son says, as can be found in no other 'S'

irrigation policy in full operation
The $25,000,000 now practically avail-
able for irrigation construction, is by
no means the limit of this work since
the fund is constantly growing through
the sales of western public lands, and
as soon as the first irrigation work is
completed, the cost of its construction
will begin to come back into the fund
for use on some other project. It is
not Intended that the government shall
give away the irrigation works. What
government land is placed under irriga-
tion will be given the homesteader free,
conditional only upon his residence and
cultivation; but the cost of putting the
water on the land-the construction of
th« dam and the main ditches-will be
borne by the settler. It is this busi-
ness-like feature of the irrigation act
which has found for it such support
among the businessmen of thecountry.
