The census bureau announced that
the statistics of this report for 1914 j
are subject to slig' t corrections in the f
full rpnnrt tn ha nnhli^hrvl pnrlv in !
A feature of the crop was greatly increased
production in California and
Arizona, two States where the cotton !
growing industry is in its infancy, and j
where a superior quality of the staple j
California's production amounted to i
4y Dales, or Z4,yiv,oUU pounas j
while Arizona's was 7,142 bales, or-!
3,571.000 pounds. |
rnofficial estimates place the value I
of the crop, which this season :as been
greatly reduced by t':e effect of the
European war, at ?570,000,000 for lint.
That is based on an average price of j
7.2 cents a pound to producers and an
estimate cf 70 per cent, as the quantity
a 1 rp.nrlv snM with Mia remainder sell
ing at an average of 7.S cents a pound, j
On the same basis the lvalue of t' e j
seed is estimated at $134,000,000. These !
make the estimated value of the 1914- ;
1") crop to cotton farmers $7(4,000,000. !

(Iiampion Chicken Story.
Knowing that it requires -'1 days to j
batch an e-gg tyv incubator or hen heat, j
William Rensch, a popular and pro- j
aressive plumber and stoamfitter here,,
figured that if the i eat were increased !
21 times an egg could be hatched in '
one day, thus saving much worry ana |
anxiety, according to Caldwell (X. J.j j
correspondent, New York World.
From the steam heating boiler in the
cellar of his home -.e strete ed steam
pipes to an incubator in which he j
place 13 eggs yesterday. He kept an
extra weight on the safetv valve for !
- - - , V. I
21 hours and this afternoon wnen ne j
opened tJ e incubator l':e was gratified ;
ro find a chick picking through his ,
Rensch ran upstair., and prepared a j
mash of infant chicken food. On his I
way back to the cellar he :'~eard a loud j
and l;-sty crowing and soon found tl at
the chick luid grown into full and vig-,
crcus roosterhood. i
The plumber went back upstairs to |
obtain more vigorous iood for such a j
bird and when he returned 10 the eel
lar ' e found that the roaster . ad died
of senility. The chick in the other
e^gs had died of old age before they
had a chance to break their s ells.
Xr. Rensch, in vouching for t' :e veracity
cf this narrative, says that the
extra heat gave the chickens too fast j
a start. . !
