Marvelous Highways. "We have been traveling now somewhere between four and five hundred miles over marvelous highways, and one thought has occurred to mo everywhere, namely, that the outstanding genius of- it all is the man . who found the way, who had the conception, the .perception and the. coa- . tidence to find an open pathway . through the mountains, tho wilderness and tho canyons, and to surmount the various other difficulties which oocossaiily had to be encountered. "I do not suppose any individual or eet of individuals would bava undertaken tho construction of such a-rail_ way. It had to bo loft to tho government Itself. Generous Government. **I am glad a geporous government uudortook and carried to completion tho construction of tho Alaska railway. It is not pussi'ble to liken 'railway to a magician's wand, but the effect to mo is the same. "I hope that development which will accrue will be all that the people of Alaska are hoping for and more, but I hardly presume It will come In any hurried way. I cannot sea how it may,. In my humble Judgment the qualltlos of the pioneers cooperating with thd transportation line which has now been opened will do more to work out tho development of this wonderland than anything which tho government ot the United States can do. I hope that the greatest expectations of the people of Alaska may comnleto- ly bo fulfilled." Ooffeyvlllo, Kan., July 10.—Arthur A.

Special campaigns to induce larger home consumption" will have little- visible effect,' and all these agencies working together can -only modify tho symptom. "The most effectlvo and direct remedy lies in the management of the farm Itself. It seems reasonably clear that the farmers' greatest problem Is to help farmers' Independent method.
