Mr. Woods declnred that the Unit
ed States, with national wealth three
times that of France nnd nearly double,
that of either Great Britain or Ger
many, was a nimmo to the world in the
prodigality with which it wastell its
substance. Lack of thrift, he asserted,
was a menace to the continued, pros

"We have a wealth of $150.000.000.
ooo ns compared with $85.000.000.000
for England mid $80.000.000.000 tor
Germany," snld Mr. Woods, "More
over, our Income of $35.000.000,000 ti
yenr is larger in proportion to this
wealth than that of any other nation.
Not ouly have we therefore the great
est amount of weulth and the greatest
income, hut the greatest proportionate
income, 28 1-3 per cent.-, comparing
with 14 tier cent of Great Britain. 12%
per cent of Germany nnd 12 per cent
of France. We uro lncreaslug our

"Out of n commerce of the astound-,

"What is true of America as a nation

stated Mr. S. ?M. Byars, demonstra

is mi her carly for the tim crop, but
owing to the drought, the growth
has about stopped and it should be
cut down this week.
"A great many people, think.- they
ought to wait until the alfalfa is in
bloom, but under the circumstances
lt should1 bo cut- at once. If those
who-have alfalfa will jet down and
examine the crown right next to tho
roots they will seo that ? new*crop
ls starting and that tho little shoots
are already putt'ng: forth. Tho old
crop is now feeding from the - roots
and so. is tho now one. It tho old
crop was cut forth the roots would
then be able to better feed the new
crop. Tho dry wether will prob
ably prevent any further growth of
tho old crop, and many of the loaves
will fall off within the next few dsys.
