PROMISE OF GRAIN CROPS.
Many people who get but very
vague ideas from the averages of I
the government's monthly crop|
report, like to see the averages
translated into their equivalent
in bushels. On the basis of the
conditions officially reported for
July 1, 1903, the expectation is
that winter wheat will yield a
harvest of 463,498,000 bushels
and spring wheat 257,129,000
bushels, and that the total har
vest result for wheat, corn and
oats in the United States this
year will be as follows:
This would make the wheat
harvest 50,500,000 bushels in
excess of that of 1902 the corn
harvest 260,688,000 bushels low
er, and the crop of oats shorter
by 136,470,000 bushels. It would
be a bountiful cropnot quite so
large as that of last year, but
large enough for home needs and
a profitable export tradelarge
enough to keep the traffic of
grain-carrying railroads up to a
point at which their dividend
paying capacity will not be unfa
The European crop situation is
far inferior to that of a year ago,
and English estimates points to a
shortage of 160,000,000 bushels
in the European wheat output as
compared with 1902. This will
assure a reliable foreign demand
and will enable the farmers of
the United States to sell their
surplus at least as advantage
ously as they did last year.
The Long Prairie Leader won
ders why it is that there are more
railroad accidents in the United
States than in any other country
on the globe. The Leader says
that the railroad accidents in
England are less than 10
cent, of ours in numbeivand that
about the same proportion holds
good in other countries.
It is no more than natural that
this condition of affairs should
felist, for" this country has more
than ten times the railroad mile
age of England, and consequently
it is not surprising that there
should be ten times the number
of railroad accidents in the
United States. One reads in the
papers every day of railway acci
dents but it must be remem
bered that the country is a large
one and the smashups may bo
4,000 miles apart. Accidents will
happen, on the railroads as else
where, but it must be confessed
that railroading has not yet byforgive,
any. means reached a state of per
fection. Every year, however,
traveling public are being made,
but as long as the American pub
lic live up to their reputation for
hustling and always being in a
hurry wrecks will occasionally
occur. An absolutely perfect
railway system on which ail
danger of wrecks will be averted
is practically an impossibility in
thfe day and age. It is the men
who handle the system anyway,
not the system itself, that is
usually responsible for the acci
Pessimism in the Sunny South.
Glory is but a transient dream that
gives color to a sleep bespangled with
illusions of greatness a mirage, glit

KNOCKED OUT BY A WOMAN.
Pugilist Put to Sleep by Girl Who
Had Taken Boxing J-Sosons.
Toledo, Ohio, July 19.Last night
a private entertainment to a few in
by vited guests was given at the Haggctt
home, 1216 Lincoln avenue, this city.
Miss Minnie Haggett had been taking
private boxing lessons of Prof. Fred
Brown, ex-pugilist. He had expected
to go on for four rounds for points
with Miss Haggett, but he sprained
his thumb and his friend, Charles
Johnson, an Indianapolis pugilist, was
induced to take his place. Johnson is
a very clever boxer, but he underrated
his antagonist and was inclined to be
"easy" with her. Miss Haggett went
at him hammer and tongs. In the third
round she planted one on his wind
pipe. The blow dazed him for a mo
ment, when the girl, seeing her ad
vantage, followed it up quickly with
a left on the chin and a right to his
jugular and the point of the jaw.
Johnson sank like a rag to the floor.
Miss Haggett screamed, for she had
never seen any one go down like that.
It was more than two minutes before
Johnson regained consciousness.

FILARIA IS A NEW DISEASE.
Responsible for the Death of Mar.y
Capt Charles Kieeffer, a United
States army surgeon, says the Phil
ippines are infested with mosquitoes
more troublesome tux' dangerous from
a medical point of view than those
that swarm in the Jersey swamps. A
strange malady known as filaria is
traced directly to them, and is com
mon among the American soldieTS
quartered on the islands. Soldieia
contract the disease by drinking
water from stagnant pools.in which
the mosquitoes have laid their eggs.
The nrst indication of filaria ap

tion, which in itself is dangerous and
rarely successful. If the worm, which

into the blood, the disease is increased
a thousandfold and the chances of re
