Progress of the University.
Wisconsin. The institute system in-
augurated by Wisconsin has been
adopted by many other states.
  The Agricultural College includes
activities in three lines:
  1. Experimentation and investi-
gation in scientific agriculture.
  2. Instruction in agriculture to
those who attend the University.
  3. Spreading agricultural infor-
mation among the people through
the Farmers' Institutes and by the
various publications.
  The completeness of the system
and the beneficent results following
show the wisdom of the legislators
in Madison and in Washington, and
the far-sighted administrative ability
of Dean Henry, who has gathered
about him a corps of investigators
and practical instructors of which
the University is proud.
