JPr Cotlrcxndnt 1Ytu; York Grnoe LOOKING AHEAD, A Discussion of Our Food Supply and Demand. A Paper Read Before the Centerville (N.Y.) Grange by Mr. S. D. Babbitt Which Contains Soma Interesting Particulars on an Important Subject. When we study the history of our country we are impressed by the great advancement which has been made along the lines of iulprovement during the short period of our existence as a nation. Unlike the histories of some coun- lrles, it Is not the number of wars or t.onquests or bloody battles fought which most impresses us, but it is the marvelous advancement made along the paths of peaceful progress. It is safe to say that no other coun- try In the world can furnish a parallel io the progress of our own country along the line of the peaceful arts, which in reality are the only elements which tend to.nlake a nation powerful and progressive. When noting the rapid development in other ways we nlust also consider agriculture. In no other industry or occupation have we made such strides as in the art of agriculture, for in recent years It has actually become an art. When con- sidering the past we can but conjec- ture what it will be a hundred or even a much less number of years from now. We are already approach- ing the time when the methods and conditions of farm life are to undergo a great change from what they now are and have been in the past. This change will not be entirely due to the farmers, but rather to meet an economic condition which has Just arisen within recent years. Last year the value of all our farm products was the largest it has ever been, reaching the enormous sum of over $8,000,000,000. Although this sum is larger than that of any previous year, yet our exports were not so large as those of previous years, while the agricultural imports were the largest they have ever been. This is the first time in the history of our country that we have had this condition to contend with. Hitherto our agricultural exports have far exceeded the Imports. but the time is not far distant when the exports will not even equal the im- ports. Ever since our ancestors first crossed the Allegheny mountains and commenced the cultivation of the so called "unlimited western plains" has the United States been looked upon as the lrincipal granary of the world. This was a natural condition. The overcrowded countries of Europe were unable to produce food products enough for their own use, and their people were obliged to search in for- eign lauds for the products which they needed. The United States was in ev- ery way well fitted to supply their wants. Instead of their overcrowded condition and lack of land we had millions of acres of the best agricul- tural lands in the world, which needed only to be cultivated. Thus we sup- plied our own growing population and at the same time furnished a large part to the people of Europe. Under this condition the natural re- sult was to settle the west as fast as possible and consequently to encour- age the extensive instead of the in- tensive cultivation of the soil. But at that time our population was nearly 4,000,000 people, while now it is nearly 100,000,000 people. For many years the increase in popu- lation nearly correspouded to the in- crease In the cultivated acres, but of late years this condition has disap- peared. There are two reasons for this result. First. the natural in- crease Is greater each year than in the one preceding It. and, besides, we have nearly a million immigrants coming to our land annually. This causes the home (:onsumption to be much greater :each year. But net only this; the "un- lhnited western plains" have ceased to exist. We can no longer bring the vast number of acres of virgin soil under cultivation as formerly. All the best part of the western land has been taken by the home seekers excepting that which has been re- served for the Indians. The best terri- tory now left is the Irrigation, which can be claimed but slowly. With this condition and the demand for our own products coming from our own people it is a natural result that the tendency should be reversed to- ward intensive Instead of extensive farming. It Is estimated that within a dozen years we will not produce the food crops for our own use, while in the past we have been producing for the people of all parts of the world. Probably the most noticeable ex- ample of this case is in the meat sup- ply. In order to produce large quanti- ties of meat cheaply we must have an abundance of good grazing land. With the settling and cultivation of the west the Industry of herding has been the first to be affected. The United States has been produc- Ing one-fourth the beef of the whole world and five years ago exported 733.000,000 pounds, but this has been reduced by half in the last five years. This Is mainly due to the vast rang being divided Into small farms for the homesteaders. One-third the food of our People I,| meat, and we are facLtllf a condition like that in Europe, where only the wealthy can afford it regu- larly and among the poorer classes it is practically unknown. The govern- ment is now considering a scheme to introduce the hippol)otannls into our southern swamps to postpone what they term the inevitable meat famine. The question of food supply con- cerns over 19.000,000 families and dur- ing the next half century will com- pletely change the methods and condi- tions of farming. Our population will then be nearly double what it now is. and the effects of this change call only be met by more intensive methods of farming. All tile older, more thi('kly settled countries of the world have already had to do this. All ttle coun- tries of Europe produce more grain to the acre than we do, and none of them has the natural advantages and facili- ties we have. There is no land in the world with so many advantages for progress and many prosperous cit- Ies. so many fine harbors, so ninny railways and navigable rivers, with such broad and fertile valleys and far- reaching plains, with such varied and vast mineral wealth, with so many good institutions for learning, and. above all. with such a Irate, noble and emancipating and protecting form of government, binding them all into a nation leading in the progress of the world. Americans have long led in the mak- Ing of inventions, and before many years have passed economical devices will save nearly all our present fuel waste, while the tides, waterfalls, ann's ray and even the interior heat of the eartll will all be ntiiized and harnessed to help promote our prog- ress. BUILDING A GRANGE HALL. How a New York Stats Grange Fi- nanced Its Grange Home. A writer in the American Agricul- turist describes how grange No. 311. located neat" Rochester. proceeded to erect a new grange hall, and the ex- perience may help others with like purpose. He says: "We had $600 iu the treasury. Some members advised waiting until suffi- cient funds were in hand to pay the cost. The majority said, 'Go ahead now.' Our first move was to incorpo- rate the grange under the membership act. We then purchased our site for $300. "We hired a mason to lay the wall for the basement. Members volun- teered to do the excavating, draw stone, sand. etc. When the wall was completed our $600 was gone. "We let the woodwork, painting, etc., on contract for $2,175. We issued ten year bonds for $2.000. The grange re- served the right to pay them off at any time. The bonds were subscribed for by members, but we still lacked $175. To meet this several members paid dues in advance. When the hall was completed we had no funds for equip- meat. Here our loyal membership showed its enterprise and grit. To get a furnace we started a subscription and soon secured a good one. "A new range was then needed. The lady members got up a soap order club and secnred a splendid range as a pre- mium. Other things, such as dishes. tables, etc., and some inside furnish- ings. as shelves, closets, etc.. not in- cluded in the carpenters' contract were wanted. Here our young members showed their hands. They organized ,lnd gave a very creditable theatrical play. and from it they secured over $100. Later sociables and special sup- pers were held once a month. We charged 15 cents for supper. In this way we have managed to equip, fur- nish and pay for everything except the bonds. "We expect to pay $100 on the bonds this year. We have not raised our dues. Our membership at present is over 300. Our dues will eventually meet and pay off all the bonds. Out" entire cash outlay for building, lot. furnishing, etc.. was $3.277. The labor douated was estimated at $200. The size of the building is 32 by 60 feet." National Grange Meeting. The national grange executive com- mittee met recently at Atlantic City, N. J.. and selected the Hotel Chalfoute as headquarters for the meeting. This Is one of the largest hotels there, hav- ing 600 rooms, and will be an ideal place for the grange headquarters. The sessions of the grange will be held on the ocean piers. Owing to the at- tractiveness of the place and its loca- tion in the east a very large attend- ance is autieiimted.
