Songs are given free to them. It is the public the dear public that pays for it all and keeps Tin Pan Alley prosperous- A singer sings a song. The audience li taken with It.

What home Is so humble that it hath not a piano? The tender ballad that made the young woman you took to the theater cry is for sale In the great department stores and by all music dealers. The young woman can hardly wait till the stores open to rush off and buy a copy. The songs that appeal to the sentiments, such as "Don't Wear Your Heart on Tour Sleeve." 'The Little Lost Child." "Only a Bird in a Gilded Cage," and the like, are the sorgs from which money Is made by the publishers. It will be rememterei that every piano In every home had a copy of thes or "After the Ball" or "Just Tell Them That You Saw Me." or similar effusions uoon It. Some of the coon songs are hummed and whistled by everybody, but are bought by comparatively few.

S. A. Knapp of the United States Bureau of Agriculture Is In Houston on an errand of exceptional significance to Texas. Dr. Knapp has recently traveled through China, Ceylon and Corea for the purpose of ascertaining what uses are made of arid lands In those countries, and especially to Investigate the culture of rice, lie has subsequently made trip through Tennessee tor the purpose of seeing what application can be made of what he learned.

Secretary Wilson accompanied him. Concerning the trip and Its purpose Dr. Knapp said: "The section of country through which we traveled in Tennessee Is excellent tobacco land. It might be described as the foothills of that mountain range that pushes down into north Alabama, north Louisiana and Mississippi through Tennessee. It is a section that has not been considered valuable as a farming country.

It has a subsoil of red clay, covered by a light loamy soil, not deep, anywhere from five to ten inches deep. It has been proved by the demonstration farms and methods to be very fine lor tobacco production. Thousands of acres of these lands had been deserted as not being rich enough to cultivate in competition with lands accepted as much better. 'Texas has thousands of acres in the greatly with its sales. For while its composer made FiO.WiO out of It, his profits would have been considerably greater had it been easily remembered.

It is during such days as these In spring, gentle spring, that Tin Pan Alley is at its busiest. The actors are back In town and nre preparing for next season's productions. The noted figures of minstrelsy and musical comedy can be seen in Tin Pan Alley these days looking for new songs for next season. It is the songs, and generally the Interpolated songs that make the show a success. Unless It have good Jongs, brilHant dialogue, funny situations and Una cos Marie Cahill.

Shamrock II not only experienced aster when King Edward was on board. but she suffered considerably from the weather In crossing the Atlantic, and later she lost Some of her stores In a fire at the dorks In New York.

It is to be called "Winsome innle." She wants two songs to interpolate in it. She may be seen in Tin Pan alley listen ing attentively while the house singer bawls a few new ones for her and the house piano player, a sulky young man addicted to cigarettes, pounds the clashing accompaniment. Dan Daly Is rehearsing in "John Henry." He wants a good melancholy-funny song to the companies at least the full amount of these totsl premiums.

"While on this trip Mr. -Wilson empowered me to carry on the work in Texas to get at the available land of that character that is good and valuable land for the purpose. You can get a.

pretty good idea why this should be dor.e when I tell you that this country now imports of tobacco annually. This work and its prosecution is all arranged for. It his been under consideration for foms time, and to have mentioned It earlier would have been premature, but not so now. He also has directed me to or rather to inquire, into that semi-arid region of Texas and the northwestern with a view to making it valuable bv finding a crop that will flourish upon it a crop that will make the land valuable instead of almost worthless, as it nowappears to he. or is considered.

There are almost whole states in the northwest made up of these lands. Their boundary lines are so Ion? that they can not he sjiven. Tt appears to be a big undertaking, but. as thev say nowadays. I am "up against if and "will do the best that I can.

The case is similar to that of the rice lands of our ooapt rountrv. onlv few years ago. They were, regarded as practically worthless, except to hold world together. Now they are fold anywhere from t20 to or more per acre for the growth of rice. Tn other words, a burden upon us is turned into one of the great wealth producing factors of the section.

Millions now come from a jmurce that was formerly worth, nothing. If we can turn this great arid into a pro-ductivt territory. th l'mlt of its value can not be measured now.
