WILSON MAKES '
Washington, D. C, Dec. 8. Nothing
ahort of omniscience can grasp the
value of the farm products of this year,
Is the statement of the secretary of ag
riculture In his annual report for 1910,
published today. At no "'time in the
-world's history has a country produced
farm products within one year with a
value reaching 18,926,000,000, which is
the value of she agricultural products
of this country for 1910.
The corn crop of 3,121,381,000 bushels'
exceeds that of the record year 1906
and is greater than the average crop
of the preceding five years by 14 per
cent. "While the value of this corn crop
is below that of 1909 and also of 190S.
Its amount belongs to stories of magic.
It ?c&n hardly be reckoned as less than

Farmer Share of Consumer's Prices
In the case of milk, in 78 cities
distributed throughout the United
States where the subject was in
vestigated by the department, the
farmer receives a scant 50 per
cent, or one-half of the price paid
by the consumer. The railroads get
about 7 percent, so that the remaining
to ijexueui oi tne consumer's pne- is
received mostly by che retailer.
The farmer receives nanily more tnan
half of the consumer's prices m the
case of poultry; 69 percent in the case
of eggs. The secretarv of agriculture
suggests that the problem of high
prices is one for treatment by the con
sumer. "Why do not consumers buy
directly from the farmers?" he asks
A distribution of farm products in this
simple way has already begun In Eng
land where cooperative organizations
of farmers are selling by direct con
signment to cooperative organizations
of consumers in the cities."
Production Per Acre and Population
Production per acre is beginning to
overtake increase of people, declares
the secretary, in discussing one of he
features of his report. "The evidence
is very plain that the yields per acrp
of our crops are now increasing-, and if
the facts were assembled in detail 'or
the states it would be found that the
percentage of increase in yioli of manv
of them Is greater than the percentage
of normal increase of population that
is, the increase of. births over deaths in
the old native element."
Cases reported to the attorney gen
eral for prosecution under the oeveral
laws administered by the department
of agriculture numbered 1738. Pood and
drug cases numbering 990 were report
ed, 766 for criminal action and 224 for
seizure proceedings. Of criminal cases
246 resulted in convictions, 3 in verdicts'
for defendants, 96 were dismissed 152
were pending In courts at the close of
the year, and 252 remained under con
sideration for future action. No len
iency was .shown in cases involving un
fit foods or dangerous drugs.
Fifty-two violations of the meat in
spection law were reported; 18 cases
gave convictions, eight were dismissed .
and 26 are pending. '
The cost of meat inspection during
the year was about $2,940,000. Animals
Inspected before slaughter numbered
Entire carcasses condemned number
ed 113,742; parts of carcasses, 874,211.
That is, about 2 percent of the animals
inspected were condemned in whole or
in part- Tuberculosis caused 46 per
cent of the condemnations among cat
tle and 96 percent of those among hogs.
Nearly 6,250,000,000 pounds of meat
food .products were prepared under su
pervision; on reinspection 19,000,000
pounds were condemned as having be
come unwholesome since the Inspection
at the time of slaughter. A steady im
provement in packing house methods is
Eradication of Animal Diseases.
The work in cattle-tick eradication
resulted in the release from quarantine
of 57,518 square miles. The total area
so far released is 129.611 square miles
in 11 southern states.
Areas aggregating 390,000 square
miles,' including all of Washington and
parts of Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Arizona
and Colorado, were released from the
The efficiency of the serum treat
ment for the prevention of hog cholera
devised by the bureau of animal indus
try, was strikingly demonstrated in a
test at Kansas City. Thirty-five pi&s
were placed inja. pen together, of which
four had beeninoculated with virulent
hog cholera blood, 22 injected with the
preventive serum and nine not treated.
The four and the nine died of hog
cholera, while the 22 remained well.
The secretary says that it is now
clear that the pioneer methods of agri
culture are inadequate for the increas
ing needs of our growing- population.
There is also abundant evidence that
with a thorough knowledge of the soils
and the intelligent application of mod
ern intensive methods the yields per
acre of our staple crops can be increas
ed many times.
Much space is given in discussing- the
work of the bureau of entomology in
its effort to control or eradicate the
The bureau has been largely aided in its
campaign against the moth family by
the importation from abroad of moth
parasites. The results from their im
portation are sufficient to justify
further work along- these lines.
Rodents anil Reforestation.
In attempts at reforestation of, the
treeless areas of our national forests
by the forest service it was found that
on an average half of the seed was dug1
up and eaten or carried away by mice
and chipmunks. Attempts to poison the
animals, however, have proved very
successful. Oatmeal mixed with strych
nine and water, or wheat coated with
hot tallow mixed with strychnine as a
protection against rain or moisture,
proved very effective. The poison
should be distributed several days in
advance of seeding.
Irrigation In-i estimations.
The office of experiment stations has.
endeavored to enlarge its plans to meet
the demands for information. In the
past water for irrigation purposes was
plentiful, great quantities were wasted.
In many parts of the west this old
method still prevails, but the improved
principle of irrigation advocated by the
department Is rapidly displacing- those
oil former days and good results are
noticeable. When the irrigators of the
San Joaquin valley first began irriga
tion they used over nine feet. About
one-third of this is found to be ample
The water users of Greeley and neigh
boring districts in Colorado thoughT
their crops would burn up unless they
had a miner's inch of water to the acre.
Now they are raising crops on the same
ground that are worth about four times
as much with one-fourth the water for
Forest Fires Cosily.
During the year forest fires burned
over an area of 3,000,000 acres, at q
rough estimate at a loss of $25,000,000
and the destruction of over 6,000,000,
000 feet of timber. During 1909 the
burned area was 362,014 acres as com
pared with 115,000 acres in 1906.
It is estimated that there are about
530,000,000,000 board feet of timber on
the national forests.

BY MRS, MAE
Hester: You say you are takiug on
flesh at a rate that dismaj-s you, and
will faithfully follow my advice If I
tell you how to secure stylish slender
ness. I am glad to say you will not
find my directions difficult to follow,
for I do not believe in starving or
violent exercise, to avoid -obesity. Just
get four ounces of parnotis from your
druggist, dissolve it in l1,? pints hot
water, and take a tablespoonful of this
harmless fat dissolver before each
meal. Weigh yourself at the end of
each week for four weeks and you will
be delighted with the result. You will
e lighter in spirit as well as body, for
parnotis benchts the general health.
Mrs. R.: To allay and soothe the ir
ritation and rouginess of your com
plexion caused by hard water, sun or
winds apply a lotion made as follows:
Dissolve four ounces of spurmax In a,
half pint Of hot water and add two tea
spoonfuls of glycerine. Apply with the
palm of the hand and "gently rub un
til dry. Use this inexpensive and ex
cellent face wash daily instead of pow
der or cometic. Spurmax preserves
the skin and beautifies the complex
ion, making it soft, smooth and white.
M. S.: I do not think brunettes are
afflicted with superfluous hairs on the
face 'any more than are blondes. Of
course black or dark hairs are more
noticeable. You can easily get rid of
them if you will use delatone. Make a
paste by mixing a little of the powder
with a little water, cover thejskin. from
which you wish to remove ths disfigur
ing hairs, let remain two or three min
utes, then wipe off the paste and wash
the skin thoroughly with warm water.
Delatone is pretty expensive. Drug
gists charge one dollar an ounce, but It
Is worth it. If the hairs should re
turn they will be thin and almost col
orless and another application of dela
tone will permanently rid you of them.
W. J. G.: Especially at this season
of the year you should be feeling ener
getic, full or life anfi have a good appe
lte. Even though you do not feel
really sick, you should take, a good
tonic to rid your blood of Its impuri
ties and build up your health and
strength generally. Get an ounce of
kardene from any drug store and dis
solve it with naif a cup of sugar in a
half pint of alcohol: then add enougn
hot water to make a full quart This
is a splendid remedy for that run
down, tired, indifferent feeling you
speak of. Take a tablespoonful be
fore each meal and in a short time It
will restore your aDpetite and free
your skin from those "pimples and liver
blotches which now annoy you.
Lucy M.: You have made a great
mistake in neglecting your hair so
long. But it is not too late to restore
it to its former beauty, even if it is
"falling, scurfy and weak hair," as you
call it. Regular use of a good quinine
hair tonic will accomplish wonders. To
make this tonic get one -ounce of quin-
