PROFITS AND ACREAGE.
A census bulletin just Issued shows
that tho total value of tho crops la
this country mado tho Immense In
' creaso from $2,990,000,000 In 1899 to
18,487,000,000 In 1909, or 83 por cent.
Wo do not need tho furthor Informa
tion that tho acreage of crops with
acrcago reports lncrcasod but 9.9 per
cent, to know that "a largo part of tho
extraordinary Increase in tho total
value of farm crops betweon 1899 and
1909 Is attributable -to higher prices,"
BayB tho New York 'Evening Post.
Cereals, for examplo, Increased In
production only 1.7 per cent, but their
value rose by 79.8 por cent. Their in
crease In price was thus no less than
47 times their increase in quantity.
Tho production of hay and forago was
much more in 1909 than in 1899, tho
percontago of Increase being 23. Tho
Increase in value, however, reached
70.2 per cent. Of cotton, tho produc
tion increased 11.7 per cent, while
the lncreaso in value was ten times
is much, or 117.3 per cent. The aver
re porcentago of increase in prices
Ing tho decade was 0G C. Had tho
prices of 1899 provailed in 1909 the
value of tho crops In tho latter jear
would have bscn only 10 per cent
above what it waB in tho former. This
10 per cent, accordingly, represents
tho increase in quantity in the ten
years, and may be compared with tho
21 per cent, lncreaso In population
In tho same period. Other statistics
have demonstrated tho truth of tho
.bulletin's conclusion: "It is only by
reason of a great reduction in the ex
portation of agricultural products that
the Increasing consumption of tho
country has been supplied."
; Before the eyes ot tho average man
there Is but one bugbear old age. In
those days when specialization is in
evitable the spectre of penniless de
clining years Is mora to bo feared
than formerly by the jack of all trades.
To the caoo In point Is information
Imparted to a Chicago college class
iby Superintendent Graves, of the King
Homo for Old Men. "Only one man
In 10,000," he says, "is self-supporting
at seventy. In the United States there
are now 1,126,000 former wage earn
ers slxty-flve and more, dependent up
on public and private charity at a cost
Of $220,000,000. Moreover, there are
300,000 old men and women in homes
whose upkeopi costs $50,000,000 an
nually. "In these days of efficiency
tosts when one must mcasuro from
70 to 80 per cent of porfoct service
,to hold his own, industrial old ago
comes to many who are mentally and
phyBlcally able to work. These facts
and figures teach tho need of training
oneself how to do what there is to do
a little better than the other fellow,
nays tho Now York American. Tho
train grows more capable with use.
Allowing that we have provided for
jour old age, we ought still to provide
against the mental poverty that is
aura to come in the days of enforced
There will be no reform of our
schools until parents of this country
understand tho nature and extent of
the problem. Parents are prone to
shift on teaches the whole of the in
tellectual and the moral training as
well. Teachers are blamed for things
noi within their province. No child
or youth is properly educated who
does not get much, if not moat of its
training, at the hearthstone. In
practice, parents imagine that paying
taxes for school purposes makes
teachers the mental, moral and
physical guardians of their children.
In truth, parents take too little inter
est in the education, using the term
in its broadest sense,, of their child
ren. One man in a hundred reads a
book; ninety-nine in a hundred read
a newspaper. Nearly a century ago,
when the American press which is
now a spreading oak, was in its green
twig, Thomas Jefferson said he would
rather live in a country with news
papers and without government than
in a country with a government and
without newspapers. If the great
Thomas Jefferson could speak in such
gloyvIng terms of newspapers, every
other citizen might feel juatin&d in
M saying a good word for, his home
'"japer. TJoJt now.
In an ondoavor to restrict tho
carrying of firearms a, bill has boeu
introduced in tho Ohio legislature
which makos it necessary for a citizen
to obtain a liconso to owu a gun or to
purchase firearms or cartridges in
this State oxcopt under restrictions
which makos such purchase almost
prohibitive. Tho law iswell iutended
but in its present form will make it
almost imposiblo for nn honorable
citizen to own or use any kind of fire
arms, whilo the thug uud robber can
easily provide himself with all sorts
of weapons. The bill should bo
The members of St. Rose Parish
aro about to make extensive improve
ments-on their parish cemetery in tho
early Spring. Over 500.00 will be
spent by the lot owners. A porma

the Avenue road. Strong cement
pillars will be erected at tho main en

will be placed. Lator on other im

This committee is collecting the funds
and will supervise the improvements
to be made in the parish cemetery-
Palestine 1b fast becoming one of
tho great orange-growing countries of
tho world. Much fruit of excellent
quality is being shipped every year to
London and other markets in north
ern Europe, and this year the crop of
the district near Jaffa, tho port of
Jerusalem, is estimated at '1,600,000
boxes. Farther up tho Syrian coast
Tyro and Sidon are expected to reach
a total of 400,000 cases of oranges ex
ported and 200,000 cases of lemons.
For a Binall country Palestine has
many interesting and valuable prod
ucts. Its olive groves are as produc
tive as they are ancient, and Its vine
yards yield grapes of fine quality in
great abundance. Notwithstanding tho
drawback, of a sometimes very defici
ent and usually scanty water supply,
Syria produces a large quantity of ex
cellent food. But It Is not easy to
think of Palestine's exports of oranges
without thinking of the Immeasurably
mora Important exports and Ideas
and Ideals from., that little country.
By comparison with tho moral and
spiritual forces which have gone out
from Syria to enrich the world, all the
products of tho soil which can bo
shipped from the ports as long as the
earth shall endure will be of little
