INTERESTING WHEAT DATA.
Interesting statistics ancnt the
f wheat crop of the state of Washington
"are contained in a statement com
pilcde by P. J. Fransioli & Co. of Ta
jcoma. It says in part:
"The average net rice received by I
* the farmers of Washintgon for wheat
this year was 66 cents a bushel, or a
total of $16,000,000 for the entire crop.
As the entire population of Wash
ington is less than 1,000,000 this
wheat crop alone would give each
man, woman ant" child in the state
over 16.7 bushels. An average of 22
bushels an acre at 55 cents a bushel
shows the value of each acre of wheat
to be $12.10 a year. This wheat is I
grown on land that ranges in value
I from $7 to $50 an acre, while the east
ern farmer, on land valued at from
$50 to $160 derives a revenue of abeut i '
$5 an acre each year. *
"From the recent indications the *
: crop [of 1906 promises to be a great ]
deal larger than that of 1906 and thou- '
sands of eastern farmers will no doubt
be attracted this way. (
"The shipments of oflur to the ori- ;
ent have been somewhat checked by
the Chinese boycott, but the present '
market viatic of wheat is on a healthy °
basis and admits of export at the pre- l
"Following is an estimate of the
wheat crop of Washington, Oregon
and Idaho, and its distribution, to
gether with the shipmments from the
beginning of the season, July 1, to
January 1, 1906,
"Washington—l,3B7,ooo acres at 22
bushels an acre, 30,500,000 bushels.
'"Oregon 790,000 acres at 18 -
bushels an acre, 14,150,000 bushels.
"Idaho 376,000 acres, at 22 bushels
an acre, 7,600,000 bushels.
"T0ta1—532,50,000 bushels. '
"Consumption — Washintgon, Ore
gon and Idaho and adjacent territory
or one year. 12,250,000 bushels. (
"Seed requirements — 2,500,000 '
California requirements— 9,000,
--000 bushels. 1
"Balance available for export in
wheat and flour— 28,500,000 bushels. J
"Total 52,500, bushels." '

Reading and Thinking.
Tti« doinetinies m hlnifilcal Jerome X
Jeroma gets seriously aroused on tl\t
ruhj*rt of reading and the time wasted
over printed "rubbish." He concludes
that a month of waking hours Is frit
tered away annually by the typical
i render, who taken op « book when hi
doesn't want to think, reversing th»
ways of tli.> past, when people read Is

but about hla mltid I am not so sure,

B< ik« to be of any use, Mr, Jerome
insists, imist demand thought, even
"furious" thinking, by an appeal tc
the Intellect Instead of flic emotions,
To quote farther:
The very young man and woman <\e\ 1
believe, read to think. They stand on the
threshold of life; the road stretches in
front of them unknown and mysterious.
They seize upon books In the hope o!
learning something to satisfy their nat
ural curiosity. It Is unfortunate that the
great mass of printed matter is only go-
Ing to mislead them—give them utteri]
Literature, this author think*, will
have to be taken more seriously and
the makers of it Rice the responsibility ,
for the thoughts put before young '
winds, for "a book either does good
or i! does harm."
Tin? New President of France. i
President Loubet retired from the ex '
ecuttye chair of France at the end of a j
full term to make way Cor a regu- i
larly elected successor. This was the '
first case of the kind in the history of ■
the republic, for with one exception
only besides that of Loubet the terms '
for which the presidents have been !
'leeted have been curtailed by death :
ir resignation. The other exception '
was Jules Grevy, who' served a full
term of seven years, was re-elected "
md resigned during His second term.
The first president, Thlers, resigned, (
as did also Marshal Ma.cMab.cm. Car- l
not was assassinated in IMH. Faurc | !
died En office, and Caslmir-Perier re
signed under the pressure-of impending
France has in President Fallleros a
representative of the radical legislative J
forces of the republic. Sis supporters !'
In the presidential congress were rad- ■ (
lcals, radical Socialists and Socialists, '
three elements which were arrayed
against the auti-repiiblieans or Impe- '
rialists, the moderate republicans and
the conservatives generally. The proc- :
ess of electing a president in France
is undemocratic. The-people have no I
voice in it, and the electors, number- '
Ing about 900 senators and deputies of
the lower house, exercise their own ;
choice in making combinations.
The concomitant of true heroism is [
modesty, as witness the remark of the
New Jersey girl who has received the
latest award from the Carnegie hero I
fund, "1 don't see 'now any one could i
have done differently." So Captain ?
Casto, who brought off the passengers
from the Cherokee at Atlantic City,
when lauded and medaled and dlnecJ
for his conduct, laid, with a brave
mail's bashfulness: '-I li.-mllv think I
deserve all of that 1 think they wont
a little too far. Now, 1 have a crew.
They're all every bit as brave as 1 am." |
The true hero never poses hat in hand
for applause and reward.
It Is somewhat assuring to learn that \
M. FnlHeres, irew president of France, |
!s fond of books, music, open tiros!
cud his family. That klndfof man Is
likely to avoid international farce com-j
edlea, discord, cannon tiro and cbrnpll- j
cations with other pepplo'a families, j
Still, Nero was fond of books, music and j
very large tires, and he had so much:
of a family that he never tried to.keen!
track of it.
Frankness, sincerity and boldness j
generally pay best in polities. The
worst whipped candidates in the Eng- j
li.sU parliamentary elections have been !
those who have wabbled on tuo Issues
involved In the campaign.
