With the present crop prospects of
the country as a basis for optimism
the Manufacturers' Record says:
"Taking the whole country from
, the Atlantic to the Pacific, from the
Lakes to the Gulf, the crops were
put into the ground under more favor
able conditions of weather .and of
" cultivation than ever before. An
abundant supply of labor due to in
dustrial depression, made it possible
to thoroughly cultivate it since. With
,the exception of limited areas, wea
ther conditions have been remarkably
favorable, and as a whole the outlook
indicates the most abundant yield
which our land has ever known. The
fruit trees everywhere are breaking
beneath their load; the wheat and
corn and oat crops promise to be
equal to the largest ever garnered, or,
if they fall short at all, only to the
extent of a few million bushels; while
throughout the South the cotton and
corn fields are in splendid condition,
freer from grass than for many years,
and the sugar plantations of Louis

"Everywhere the song of prosperity
is heard in the agricultural regions,
and once more, with his work well
begun, the farmer has already much
more than half passed the danger

count on a continuation of the splen

"Under such conditions, and with
reviving industrial activity, evidences
of which are seen in many directions,
the time is near at hand when every

be in demand, and then once again

tation facilities greater than has been
the scramble of the railroads for
freight during the, last six months.
We have "turned the corner, and
ahead of us is the long straight road
of business prosperity."

"Little Fun Now and Then."
In the late financiai stringency a
clerk in one of the New York banks
was trying to explain to a stolid old
Dutchman why the bank could not
pay cash to depositors as formerly,
and was insisting that he be satisfied
with clearing house checks. But the
old German could not grasp the situ
ation, and finally the president of the
bank was called upon to enlighten
the dissatisfied customer. After a
detailed explanation of the financial
situation, the president concluded:
"Now, my good man, you under
stand, don't you?"
"Yes," dubiously replied the Dutch
man, " tinks I understand. It's just
like dis, ven my baby vakes up in der

Washington last month, told a story
abbut a statesman of the past.

with flags and flowers, before the
court house of a Western county town, I
facing an audience of farmers and I
their families that had come from 1
miles around, the statesman arose to i

"He was not incapable of an ora- a

face and disordered attire stioke ill t

"Sure!" responded the busy butcher,
depositing the little human bundle on

"But," commented the watching

Germs Cannot Hurt A Sound
When you are in good health and
the world looks bright, it is because
the white corpuscles, well- supplied
with ammunition, are fighting your
fight for you all over your body. It
is when your opsonins are deficient,
and your soldiers are fighting a losing
battle from head. to foot, that the
aches come and life seems flat and
unprofitable. Your ills are only the
after effects. To be logical, you
should greet your friend with, "How
are your opsonins?"
This, then, is the welcome message
that recent discoveries have brought
us from the field of battle-that
germs are powerless to affect a
healthy body in which the vital- re
sistence is maintained by good habits
of living. Alcdhol, tobacco, and
- other such drugs,. whether narcotic
or stimulative, are aids and comforts
to our invisible enemies. Too much
food, especially hearty food, such as
meat and beans, forms supplies for
I the commissary department of the
r enemy, instead of for the brigades of
On the other hand, every breath,
drawn deeply into the lungs, of fresh
sun-warmed air, is a direct blow
struck at our foes and on the side of
our defenders. Every sip of pure
water aids the forces of life. So
too, does every motion of walking,
running and other exercises--when
exercise is not excessive. Every'
mouthful of pure food adds fuel to
the flame of life.
So, too, does every pure thought;
this is to say, every cheerful, normal
action of the brain when uncontami
nated by gloom, morbidity, or any of
the poisons of pessimism. Thus you
can aid your bodyguard to fight the
attacks of the invisible army of germs
by the adoption of a few simple princi
ples, and the attainment of a little
real, up-to-date knowledge on the
subject of hygiene; and by combining
can help each' other in the war that
must ever go on.-Michael Williams,
in "Success Magazine."

SEX CONTROL IS PRAfTICAL.

Producr the Boys.
Control of the sex of infants is a
practical proposition, according to Dr.
Kraft, secretary of the American in
stitute of Homeopathy. Dr. Kraft
says he hal discovered no new -prin
ciple, but has shown the jractical
application of one Qriginating with
the evolution theory. The principle,
he says, is based on the law of the
survival of the fittest.
, It is well known to, scientists, as
serts he, that savage races and races
which exist where the conditions of 4
life are hardest, produce a prepon
derance of male children. From this
fact he deduces that nature recog
nizes in the female the weaker sex.
Thus, he says, in times of plenty fe
males are likely to predominate.
Some thinkers on the subject even
go so far as to state that the hard
times produce male children.
