The flying cloud, the frosty light;
The year is dying in the night; .
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.
Ring out the old, ring in the new;
Ring, happy bells, across the snow;
The year is going let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
Ring out the grief that saps the mind
For those that here we see no more
Ring out the feud of rich and poor;
Ring in redress to all mankind.
Ring out a slowly dying cause.
And ancient forms of party strife;
Ring in the nobler modes of the
Ring in the Christ that is to be.

Elberta peaches the size of a tea
cup are reported by John M. Howell
of Parker County, Texas, who attrib
utes his success as an orchardist to '
the practice of dry farming methods.
In an interview, Mr. Howell stated
that his peach tree did not have a
drop -of rain for three months prior
to the picking of his crop.
"Dry farming or scientific soil cuL
ture," said Mr. Howell, "will mean a
great deal for our agricultural inter
ests. It is practiced successfully in
sections of the country that have far
less rainfall than we have in Parker
county and there is no question but
that it will do the work if the proper
methods are followed.
"On my orchard tract there has
been practically no rain for three
months. I broke the orchard land
between the trees in the spring with
a disc harrow. Since that time I have
cultivated the soil both ways with a
section harrow every week and the
result has been astonishing. There
is a fine dust mulch four to five inches
deep over the ground and the trees
are growing as nicely as if there had
been plenty of rain. The fruit has
grown and matures without rain and
is now. ripening into as perfect speci- '
mens as any one could desire."

My daily says a man in Chicago
has made $1,000,000 in the past ten
days of "May wheat." What is "May
wheat," anyway? Can Judge Wilkin
son grind it in his mills, does Wade
raise it on his farms, is Professor Mil
ler testing it for yield and qualuy,
and what kind of bread does it make?
One time a man told me thatMay
wheat was not wheat at all, but just
a name that a lot of fellows have for
a gambling game, and if this is true,
the constable at Chicago ought to haul
that chap up before the squire and
have him fined and socked in jail for
six weeks on a charge of gambling.
Maybe the Chicago constable and the
squire and the rest of the people there !
are all in one and the same game like j
the councilman in Cincinnati who was ;
hauled up for keeping a gambling
den. The farmer who grows real ,
wheat, the miller who grinds it, the i
baker who makes it into bread, and j
the ooor man who can only afford to !
fi)uy one "nickel loaf" at a time, have )
all helped to make up the million dol-;
lars that Chicago manias made in
ten days on his "May wheat" This
