In these wordi Prof. P. G. Holden
of the Ames Agricultural College sum
marizes the results to be expected of
the campaign instituted by himself
and the lowa Corn Growers' Associa
It isn't increased acreage that Prof.
Holden wants; it Is better results
from the present acreage. It is not by
any artificial culture that he would
bring about these results. le prom
ises that they shpl be realized if the
farmer does the simple thing of put
ting a hundred live kernels of corn in
every thirty hills.
Entirely new in agriculture is the
experimental work of Prof. Holden,
and throughout Iowa he has convinced
meetings of farmers that for once a
professor in an agricultural college has
a reform that is thoroughly practical.
In a word, his plan requires only the
sorting by hand of seed corn and the
filling of plates in corn planters in
such a way as to drop the required
iinber of grains of corn in each hill.
To find how much the farmers of
Iowa are losing each year by not prop
erly planting corn, Prof. Holden last
year sent 1,00) letters to all parts of
Iowa asking the number of stalks in
each hill in corn fields. Ile found that
the stand was but 75) per cent. of what
he has demonstrated will produce the
largest yield, and last year's corn crop
was generally considered a good stand.
The other day he himself inspected
twenty-four of the best corn fields he
"I found," he reported to a imeeting
of the Iowa Corn Growers' Association
in Sioux City, "from 3. to 86;.2 per
cent. of a perfect stand. The average
loss was 28.7 per cent.
"I do not mean by this that the field
that has live stalks in each hill is bet
ter than one with four and that hills
of six stalks are better than hills of
five. I have found that the best re
'cults are obtainued from an average
of about three and a third stalks to a
"T have found one stalk in a l1ll
will produce but one-third as much
corn as a proper number of stalks,
two stalks three-fourths of a yield and
five stalks three-fourths of a yield. In
making my tables I counted either
three or four stalks a 100 per cent.
'For ten years the average yield of
corn in Iowa has been approximately
35 bushels. A yield of thirty-live bush
els with a 70 per cent. stand. which is
the average found in a number of
years, wvould become lif ty buahels with
a 10t) per cent, stand." -4
The acreage planted in cornu in the
seveun States growing over 100.000,000
bushuels of corn in 1902 was: Illinois,
0,023,.180; Iowva, h.3()2.O88; Nebraska,
7,81 7,th;2; Kansas. 7,-is51.093; MissourI,
0,775,198; Indiana, 4,520,937; Ohio, 3,
The combined acreage was about 48,
000,000. A ,,ainu of ten bushels an acre,
or a 90 per cent. stand, wvhich Prof.
liolden thinks is easily attainable,
would mean an increase in the annual
yield of these States of 480,000,000

The Humbert Trial.
All France has beei agog for the
past three weeks over a crIminal trial
whichl in Its demand upon public inter
est almost rivaled the Dreyfus court
martial, of which it was remni)iscent in
that the chief counsel for the defense
was N1. Maltre Labori, who defended
the unhaippy prisoner of 1evil's isle be
fore the military court at Iennes. It
was the trial of the notorious I lumbert
family, which by tales of a va.t inher
Itance from a mythical inillionaire, tied
up by litigation with other heirs, the
mysterious Crawford brothers, gulled
French banks and financiers out of
$10,00.000. Not content with this, the
Humberts added the bourgeoisie to
their victims by promoting the com
pany known as the Rente Vingere.
For years "La Grande Therese," as
Mine. Humbert is known in Paris,
moved in the highest society, entertain
ing royally in her luxurious apart
ments, while her husband waas saving
his country as a member of the cham

her friends some of the most prominent
oilcials of the French government.
With the inevitable collapse, when
bankers would lend no more and the
mysterious millions of the Crawfords
were not forthcoming, the Ilumberts
fled to Midrid, and the cry sent up by
the poor stockholders of the Rente Via
gere ascended to the throne of French
That cry received little hearing at
first, and it was openly charged that
the delay in having the fugitive pro
moters apprehended and returned to
Paris for trial was due to complicity in
their schemes of those who sat iII the
seats of the mighty, especially the
French ambassador to Spain. The trial
came at last, attended by audiences
more brilliant than those at the fetes
of Longchamps. and all Labori's elo

Minister's benevolent dispositioni and

admitted in itussia that these secret
