Recommendations of the New York State Grange. Each year there is a standing com- mittee of the New York state grange appointed to visit the experiment sta- tion at Geneva, N. Y., with which the grange is working In harmonious re- lations. The station is under the able management of Dr. W. tI. Jordan. and its function, as fixed by law. is to con- duct experiments and investigations for the promotion of agricultural sci- ence, to perform and report to the commissioner of agriculture such an,d- yses and other expert scientific work as said commissioner shall request, publish bulletins and reports and in other ways to promote agriculture in its various branches. There are now thirty persons in the scientific sta- tion of the institution, and the total number employed there, including la- borers, is seventy. The total amount appropriated by the state for station CALVIN J. RUSON, NEW YORK COMMIS- SIONER OF AGnlCULTURE. purposes is $95,S00. There is urgent need for new buildings, particularly fro" administration and demonstration purposes, and there is up place now on the station grounds suitable for tim as- sembling of a large audience except out of doors. The committee of the grange recommended an immediate ap- propriation of sufficient size for the erection'of a building as above describ- ed and an annual al)IU'ol,riation of s sufficient sum for s:tlaries to enable the dh'ector to retain the services of the best eqntpped men that money ran hire and so prevent the removal of dc sirable men to otfier institutions and. third, an appropriation of a sufficient size to enable the director to (.patinae investigations heretofore begun rctat ing to the grape industry of Chautau qua county.

POMEROY I Ferguson, who wrote plays, argued that it artists need models why not playwrights? But where are the play- to00o, At Monroe Wash Ferguson was engaged to be mar-  ried to a young lady to whom plays, ro-, all ideal things-were as real as they were objects of art to The tO uch little aglc in- 'lew s to ze Be Awarded her betrothed. It had often occurred to him when he desired a model for some espe('ial scene to deceive her into a like situation and put her words into the month of his character. trouble was that he (.ouldn't bear to subject her to a strain. She was such a delicate, sensitive, clinging thing that he was afraid any tragic experience would result in positive in- Jury to her. However. at one time he had in view I a play in which the hero confesses to the heroine, whom he loves and who loves him, that he is a criminal. love for him is so strong that she can- not discard him, but consents to de- vote herself to him for life in an en- deavor to help him outlive the effects of his crime and become a self re- specting and respected citizen. Late it turns out that he has confessed to a crime committed by his brother, whom he desires to, save. Ferguson knew that if he made such a confession to his Rosalie she would take it all in earnest. It would be a serious business for the girl. But he would get a model for an emotion that would result in certain fame and pro- spective profits. Surely Rose would forgive him when she knew why he had deceived her, especially when comforts would accrue from the royal- ties that come as a result of the de- ception. There was a side issue to the matter that was tempting. It would be love- ly to have Rose act according to his i ideal--that is. to show such love for him that she would cling to him de- spite his crime. And the denouement would be very pleasurable. One night he called upon his fiance and before she came down to receive him hid one of these little phonograph- ic machines for taking in the human voice under the sofa in order that he might put her exact words into the di- alogue of his play. She stepped play- fully into the room, but stopped on the threshold, observing the dreadful ex- pression he had assumed. "Oh. Harry, what ls it?" "Rose, sweetheart, how can I tell you !" "'Tell me what? Speak at once!" "I cannot." "You must. Don't fear for me. ! can bear It." "'1 don't know how 1 could have done it." "Done what?" "Rose. in a moment of madness ! was tempted to"-- "What?" "Commit a forgery." The little machine under the sofa was getting it all down. There was now a brief interval, a moment of fear- ful suspense for the hero, one of emo- tional indecision for the heroine. Fer- guson had made an attempt to put the dialogue in his play. using his inven- tive powers. Thus far the real and the ideal coincided. The next lines, as he had written them, spoken by the hero- ine were, "Oh. Harry, how could you have done it!" But when Rose spoke them they were different. She stood looking at him with a heaving bosom and flashing eyes. Then, pointing, she q)oke her part: "'You Just walk out of that door, and don't let me ever see you again!" Ferguson was astonished, not only that she coul'd treat him thus, but that she should show so much strength un- der the ordeal. "Is there no hope?" he moaned. "Hope! No! Haven't you been fool- ing me with your high toned talk about honor and integrity and all that, and yet you have been weak enough to commit the most contemptible of crimes. I'd rather have had you com- mit murder." "Rose. if you cant me off 1 shall go down, down. from this point, becom- ing at last a hopeless wreck on the sands. With you to lean on"-- "l don't want a man to lean on me. 1 prefer to lean on a man, thank you." Ferguson stood looking at her for a few moments; then a sickly smile broke over his face. "As a model for an Ideal, self aacrl- ricing woman who loves her lover so well that she will cling to him, though he confesses himself a criminal, you're not a success." "'What do you mean?" "Tve been stuffing you. I wanted to see how you would act if I confessed myself a criminal." "'Well. i hope you're satisfied." "1 am. I won't make any more such confessions." "1 don't think you will." "Why?" "'Because i don't want a lover who will nse me for any such purpose. tood evening and goodby." And she swept out of the rmm. Ferguson spent more thought on ap- peasing her than he gave to his 0lay. However, be succeeded in time and 18 now married and is still a playwright.
