Tlio American farmer has no causo for complaint, evi n if Mic grain pricu level ls a small fraction of a per ?eut below thc seven-year avorage for this lime of year. As matters stand, it is about enc per ci nt higher than u j year ago. ami in any event the cnor- i mons volume of all the principal crops will more than counteract any pos- . slble lowering of prices. Hie government's crop report for i July l Indicated Hie greatest agricuL 1 taral output in our history, or in tho ' hUtory of any country. Wheat is ex . peeled to total 063,000,000 bushels, i which is about 70,000,000 bushels more than last year, and more than one third of thc world's 1914 production Corn is expected to reach thc 2,814. 000 mark, which has been surpassed three times in our own history, bul which Is more corn than tile entire world produced last year. Oats, If it reaches 1,390,000,000 bushels, will be ( los.- to our highest murk, made in 1912, and will be 44 per cent of the world s output a year ago. Therd are no crop failures what ever. The condition of nil crops to gether, ou July I, was 2.3 per cent ubov the average for ten years. It's great for the farmer, great for the merchant, great for the railroads und great for thc general public. Re inforced by the growing boom in tho iron and steel industries, and bul warked by the general shortage of Brain In Europe, lt insures nt least mic lat year after the lean ones. THE ?ELI OF OF LAWS. ".I had a count made not long ago in tho Library of Congres?" says Elihu Hoot, "of the number of lawB that had been passed in five years ending December 1, 1913. I found that more than 62.000 laws bad been passed by congress and the State legislatures in this country in tliut live years, nod I found that there lind been reported during Hint five years and published In 630 volumes of reports of thc courts more than 65,000 decisions of courts of last resort In this country. Now, not even Mr. Clioate knows them all by heart. How can you conduct your business and keep out of Jail?" How can any man, whether In busi ness or not. keep out of jail, with' those 112,000 laws. and 05,000 court decisions on his trail, reinforced by the hundreds of thousands of laws und decisions of-other years? Per haps the reason is the very fact hinted at by Mr. Hoot-that no human being eau possibly keep track bf them. Anybody would think that the legal profession, in sheer despair at trying to keep up with*legislation and court decisions, would try to curb tho out put, limiting tho scope of legislation to essential thing:?, and reforming out semi-legiBlatlvu judicial system. AMERICA* TEA. The recent death of Dr. Charles ?. Shepard has? attracted attention to bis unique agricultural achievement. Ho had succeeded in doing something that tho experts of the government had long attempted without BUCCCBS-the domestication of the tea plant. On his South Carolina plantation ho not only made tho exotic herb live and ?jifow, hut made lt commercially prof itaiile. lils yearly production was about 15,000 pounds. That isn't much compared to tho 91,000,0*0 pounds we import from <ASla every year, but nevertheless it's as creditable a feat ns many of tho celebrated ?iicccsses of Luther Burbank who creates new species of fruits, vegetables and grain. lb doesn't seem likely that toa will over be so thoroughly' domesticated In America ns to bo raised easily and profitably by thc overago farmer. Na tu? o seems to hove marked out cer tain sections of China, Assam, Japan, India und Java for this plant just an definitely as she has made Kansas thc great corn State, and adapted South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Texas particularly to to thc raising of cotton. THE RETORT ALCOHOLIC In reply to the question asked by Leslie's Weekly, "Who drank all the B8.000.000 gallons of whUkey made in the United Staten last year?" the Madison ville (Ky.) Hustler says: "We sincerely hope lt hasn't been drunk. If tho American nation has degenerated to the extent of drinking whiskey less than a year old, ?ien all tho mean things thc Germans have said about us must be true." Large Tomatoes. Tho Enterprise has received a num ber of fine tomatoes this season, but tho largest we have yet received was grown by Rev. Edw. S. Jones at the Methodist parsonage. Mr. Jones brought up two yesterday, one of the "Crimson Cushion" variety, was un doubtedly the most perfect tomato that we have ever seen. It weighed more than a pound (the parson's word for the weight) and was smooth and beautiful.

The arrest of Huerta and thc threat to prosecute his alleged financial backers is another Indication of thc present atUt;:de of the administration toward the former president of Mex ico. On the assumption that Huerta was a disturbing element in Mexico he waa forced out of the coutry, and it was given out at the.state depart ment that the Carranza-Vllla faction would Bhortly reBtore peace. Later when there was a break between Car ranza anl Villa tho latter received thc support of thc administration and was heralded as a second Washing, ton. When Carranza appeared to have tho upper hand a statement came from the president which was construed In some quarters as a threat of .intervention. More recent ly Villa seems to be becoming strong er and nothing 4s being heard of thc purpose of the administration to as sume a more aggressive attitude In dealing with tho Mexican troubled. Its entire attitude seems to amount to a declaration that nono of the leaders of the Mexican factions will be tolerated with thc exception of Vil la. If this government intends io pros ecute the financial backers of Huerta, fairness and neutrality in dealing with thc different factions would ap pear to call for similar treatment of the Villa and Carranza Juntas. No one will seriously contend that Villa and Carranza are without financial support from this country. If the secret service of th government will take the trouble r watch the Villa and Carranza agents ss closely ss they have Huerta and his friends they will discover that both factions have financial backers hero.

If it ls a crime for Huerta to start another revolution in the United States, why, it is asked, should Carranza and Vil la forces be allowed to conduct their propaganda from this country? Many Americans acquainted with conditions in Mexico have more faith in the ability of Huerta to establish a stable govcrnmont than any of the other leaders. At least he could do as well as Villa if he bad the moral support of the administration. Every one acknowledges that what ls needed in Mexico ls a strong dictator, and Huerta sizes up to these specifica tions better than any of the other loaders. Of course, no one who has any knowledge of Mexican afTairs considers seriously any probability of establishing a real republic in Mexi co. Not over 15 or <?,0 per cent of tho voting population of the country over exercised the right of suffrage, laud the majority of the people do not expect it. What the great mass of Mexicans want ls an honest govern ment which would give them an op portunity to make a living without interference of bands of robbers who aro ravishing the country under the guise of fighting for a principle. Whatever should be based upon the recognition of facts, and not upon beautiful theories. The facts were well understood at tho beginning by a large class of our citizens who bad learned, by close observation and ex perience, the actual conditions in Mexico.
