Comedian Relates Story That Would
Seem to Be Almost the Limit
Even In That Line.
Raymond Hitchcock is to be credited
with this story, says the New York
correspondent of the Cincinnati Times
Star. He deserves it, for of late he
has milked cows from the wrong side,
fussed with his wife on the deck of
an ocean liner and been kicked Into
the water by a motor boat In his hunt
for" first page position and something
better than a No. 4 headline. "An old
friend of mine came to me last win
ter," said Hitchcock, "and asked me
to get him tickets to the show In 'which
I was then appearing 'I 'nould if I
could, old chap,' I said, 'but honestly,
I can't get 'em for jou. I have no ac
count at the box office. The only way
In which I can get you tickets would
be to pay for them, out of my own
pocket.' -,!-,. . , .
" 'Aw,' said he, 'any old place will
do. I don't care where I sit. See If
they won't let you have a pair for me.
Explain to 'em that I'm an old friend. "
Mr. Hitchcock admittedly lost his
temper. Ho pulled a five-dollar bill
out of his pocket and walked toward
the box office window. They had
been standing In the theater lobby.
"I'll prove to you," he said, sourly,
"that I have been telling the truth "
And to the man behind tho cash reg
ister: "Two seats at a dollar and a
half each." And then he handed thein
to the persistent pass grafter. "Now,"
Fald he, "I hope you're satisfied."
"'Yep,' said the other. 'I am, and
my wife will be tickled to death. But,
gee, my sister-in-law will be disappoint
ed because I only got two.'"

thoughtful observers believe the same
true of Germany.
Patrons of the prize ring used to
say that a man weighing 180 pounds
weighed enough. A man of that weight
was deemed big enough to encounter
any adversary, and additional weight
was thought as likely to be a hin
drance as a help.
The rule may hold good with na

no one knows where to draw the line.

Bicycles In France.
The number of bicycles in France
appears to be on the increase, judging
from the latest returns for 1911, which
give a total of 3,000, C2C, as compared
with 2,697,406 of the previous year.
Tho total revenue from the tax on bi
cycles last year amounted to upward
of nine millions of francs, or about
half a million francs more than in
1910. The ten departments having the
greatest number of bicycles last "year
were those of the Seine, with 309,759;
Nord, 159.05C; Selne-efrOlse, 97,271;

(the I H C Service Bureau proposes to
heip do for all the states and for Can
ada what Holdcn has done for Iowa.
.After considering many offers, and
after an investigation of the company
and its works, Professor Perry G.
Holden has entered the service of the
IHO Service Bureau at Chicago.
Professor Holden is known wher
ver real agriculture is known. His
whole life is one pj service. He orig
inated he idea of carrying informa
tion direct to farmers. He ia the fa
ther of the demonstration train, short
school courses, the corn show, county

demonstration farms, and the National
Corn Exposition. As head of the ex
tension department of Iowa State Col
lege of Agriculture he did a work
which, Senator Cummins says, up to
tne present time has increased the
wealth of Iowa $30,000,000.
The object of the I H C Service Bu
reau is the promotion of agricultural
education, and a co-operation which
will tend to raise the whole tone of
commercial, industrial and farm life.
Since agriculture Is the basis of pros
perity and progress, naturally farm
problems claim first attention. The aim
Is higher efficiency, both on and off
To do a big work a big- organization
Is necessary. Not only the bigness,
but the perfection of the International
organization as well appealed to Pro
fessor Holden. The big general agen
cies, scattered all over the United
States and Canada; the salesmen,
travelers and expert machine men;
the 40,000 dealers every one, so far
as possible, is to be made an apostle
of better farming.
For years the International Har
vester Company has realized the Im
portance of service. It has spent mil
lions of dollars in the perfection of labor-saving
machines, and now the
company is going in for direct service
dlrep to the farmers, and direct to
the farmers' children, that the men
and women of tomorrow may be more
capable and so more prosperous than
the men and women of today.
It is no longer a. theory that if we
are to get the most out of life we
must raise more per acre, "Inten
sive farming" is in the air. It is the
battle cry of peace and plenty. But
raising more is the result of mind,
sot muscle. We must know. And
sot only that, we must Know we
know, and know why we know. "We
must know good seed from bad, right
cultivation from wrong, and the whys
and wherefors of climates, soils,
fruits, cattle, horses, poultry, and to
For these things the bureau was
established, But the bureau and
Professor Holden see more than an
average Increaso of a few bushels.
They see a time coming when farmers
will raise twice as many bushels of
corn, wheat and oats to the acre,
and like yields of all other kinds of
farm products They see a time when
farmers and farmers' wives and their
children will think more and work
less. Every bushel raised means Just
that much profit, and the profits of
the farm promote commerce and In
dustry, After a period of good work in Mich
igan agricultural college, better work
l at Illinois, and a great work at Iowa,
Professor Holden now enters upon a
world's work. While ir future Pro
fessor Holden will designate Chicago
as home, he says he Is not leaving Iowa
he Is merely carrying Iowa to th
rest of tho world.

Editor's 0pinioi4on .Stock Show.
rV. R. Goodwin, managing -editor of
the Breeders' Gazette, Chicago, in
speaking of the International Live
Stock Exposition, which will this year
be held from Nov. 30 to Dec. 7, said:
"I have sepn more of the great stock
shows and fairs in America In the past
thirty years than any other man and I
ought to be somewhat case-hardened:
but the "International" annually fills
me with awe. I approach each exhibi
tion of the consummate triumph of
the breeder's art with afalrlv,reverent
mind. A man may become indifferent
to the roar of Niagara, but I do not
see how any man can fail to find new
Instruction and inspiration in each of
these shows. If I were wholly a stock
farmer, as I am partly, I would sacri
fice much rather than miss an 'annual
trip to the "International." The pro
fessional breeder may about as well
take down his sign as omit this show
from his years programme, and the
stock farmer can gather almost as
much of value from a study of the
lessons.2 We must have meat to eat.
The jaw of the civilized world rises
and falls in the mastication of meat.
The farmer of America chiefly the
farmer of the corn belt must make
this meat He can learn more about
Its production at this great exposition
than at any farmer's institute or spec
ial stock train that ever offered Infor
mation. The stock farmer who works
his brain as well as his body can make
no more profitable Investment than a
study of the exhibits of the "Interna
tional" the cattle, horses, sheep and
swine. The farmers of no other na
tion have such opportunities There
Is only one "International" on the

built it. Their fellows should appre
