to be to put a candidate from the eaat?

YIRGINIA*S BIG INCREASE IN CORN.
Leads Southern SUtes in Average
YicW Per Acre Makes
Governor Mann was recently much
elated to laam from the Department
of Agrfculture at Waahington that
Virginia leads all the other South At
lantic and Golf Statea In average yield
of corn per acre. He waa also pleaaed
to note the increased total State yieli
as coropared with last year.
The department gives the increase in
the production of corn for the nine
Statea at 158,294,000 buahels. which
amounts to 45 per c#?ot. of the total
gain for the entire country. This indi
cates, as much as anything could do,
the wonderful advance in agriculture
being made in the Southern Statea.
In Virginia the average yield per
acre for 1909 waa 23 2 buahels. which
has grown to 26.5 buahela in 1910. In
ten years the average yield in this
State haa increaaed from 22.7 buahels.
Seeond to Virginia in average yield
is Louisiaua, which haa gone up from
23 bushela in 1909 to 23.6 buahels in
1910. Georgia ia the lowest, but is im
proving, having increased from 13 9
Ia??t year to 14.3 buahela thia year.
The total crop in Virginia laat year
in buahela was 47,328,000, which haa
gone up to 54,621,000 buahela in 1910.
Thia is a gain in one year of 7,293.000
bushels. or 15.4 per cent.
The following nine statea as ofrkially
reported by the United States Depart?
ment of Agriculture show an increase of
158.294,000 bushels of corn, which ia 45
per cent of the total increase for the
year, for the entire United Statea:

Virginia ia determined that none but

of the pureat and trueat that ever lived)
I had to lay aaide my booka at an early
agc and go to work to help aupport her
and an orphan aiater. Perhaps, had my
father lived, and aerved on some city
council for a numbcr of yeare, I could
have aecured a better education.
Lack of education ia not my fault,
but my miafortune. However, prof.
Cooper, permit me to aay that if it af
forda you and your achool boya?eapeci
a'ly the membera of your Latin claaa
(of whom you write ao boaatfully aimply
because they, after having atudied Latin
aeveral aeaaiona. correctcd one who
never studied that language for as long
a period as one minute in the spelling of
one word of only four lettera)?any
pleaaure to rldicule my miafortune you
are hearlily welcome to the aame; as I
am alwaya glad to contribute to the
pleaaure of othera even though they
uae me unkindly and diacourteously. for
the blesaed Maater tells me to return
good for evil and to do good to thoae
who deapitefully uae me.
In conclusion, Prof. Cooper, permit
me to say that ahould I be drawn into
another newapaper controversy, I ain
cerely truat it may not only be done by
a graduate of a High School or college.
but alao by one who haa taken a few
leasona at leaat in that very important
and moat uaeful inatitution- uaually
known aa the achool of politeneas.

Colonel Button. Inaurance Commia
sioner, after hearing from the officera
of theGalilean Fiahermen, of Baltimore,
ordered that its licenae be not revoked,
and that it can continue to do busineas
in Virginia. The ofncera promiaed to
levy an additional aaseasment in order
to meet the expenses and deficit due by
the recent failure of the Fishermen'a
Bank some time ago, and under thia

Calling upon President A. Ilolmea to
convene the Grand Fountain of the
United I >rder of True Reformera in ex
traordinary aeasion for the purpoae of
dealing with the trouhlea of the order,
a maas-meeting of colored citizena of
Richmond favored the guarantee by the
Grand Fountain of all the liabilities of
the defunct aavings bank. It ia pre
sumed that extra aasessments would be
necesaary on the part of the membera
to pay off the obligations of the bank,
but those preaent took the ground that
the order ahould take high ground and
announce its willingneas and its irten
tion of reiciburaing the depositors of
the bank and of paying off in full all
claims against the True Reformera.
