MICHIGAN'S HARVEST.
The Yield of Corn, Oats. Potatoes,
For this report as made to the State
Department returns have been received
from 789 correspondents representing
G29 township3. Five hundred and four
of these returns are from 371 townships
in the southern four tiers of counties.
AREA SEEDED TO WHEAT.
The area seeded to wheat this fall is
estimated at three per cent, less than
was seeded in leal, and the condition
is estimated at ninety-two per cent,
the comparison being with vitality and
growth of average years.
THE CORN CROP.
The number of acres of corn raised
in Michigan in the year 1831, as re
ported to the department by the super
visors, was 773,533, welding nearly 21-
000,000 bushels. The acreage was
greater than any previous year, but the
aggregate yield was less than in 1880
or in 1879. The acreage in 1882, esti
mated by correspondents in June, on
the basis of the acreage in 1881, was
nearly 810,000, acres. The yield per
acre, as estimated November 1, is 68
bushels of ears, or about 34 bushels of
corn, indicating an aggregate product
of about 27,500,000 bushels. Though
corn was fully matured at the time of
the first frosts, yet it is evident that
the crop as a whole has .not been ma
terially damaged.
OATS.
The area ia oats in 1881 was 465,303
acres, and the yield 15,352,706 bushels.
The acr iage this year was about 483,-
000 acres, and the yield 15,400,000
bushels, or upwards of 50,000 bushels
more than produded in 1881. The
figures for 1882 are based on the cor
respondents' estimate of acreage made
in June, and the returns from thrash
ing machines made in September and
October.
CLOVER SEED.
Both the acreage and yield per acre
of clover seed are less than in 1881.
BEEF POTATOES APPLES, ETO.
Potatoes are estimated to yield one-
fourth more per acre on" an acreage
eleven per cent greater than that of
1881. The estimates on the condition
of beef catt le and sheep, and the prob
able yield of winter apples, are sub
stantially the same as in October.
WHEAT MARKETED.
Reports have been received of the
quantity of wheat marketed by farmers
during the month of October at 302
elevators and mills, or these, 247 are
in the southern four tiers of counties,
which is about one-half of the whole
number of elevators and mills in these
counties. The total number of bushels
reported marketed is 1,870,663, of
which 310,016 bushels were marketed
in the first or southern tier of counties;
544 632 busnels in the second tier; 333
026 bushels in the third tier; 375.832
bushels in the fourth tier, and S07.066
bushels in the counties north -of the
southern four tiers. At thirty-four
elevators and mills, or eleven per cent,
of the whole number from whici re
ports have been received, there was no
wheat marketed during the month.
The total number of bushels reported
marketed in the four months, July,
August. September and October, is 4,-
214 257. Statistics for the above re
port closed November 1.
Iron and Copper of Michigan.
There was mined and shipped by lake
tnd rail from the iron mines of this
district in 1881 an aggregate of 2,321,
315 tons of ore, whose market value at
the point of delivery was nearly $19,-
000,000. If we added the value of the
quartz exported and the pig iron pro
duced it will bring the figures fully up
to f JO.000,000; which we will let stand
as representing the money product of
the mining industries of the district for
that year. The Lake Superior copper
mines produced and Bhipped during the
same year a fraction over 34,174 tons
of crude copper, worth in the market
not less than $1 1,000,000. Adding this
to the $20,090,000 representing the
value of the iron product, and we have
a grand total of $31,000,000 for
the Lake Superior district; or within
$3,700,000 of the entire gold production
of the country, and but $12,000,000 be
hind the total production of all our
silver mines, whose wealth has been a
favorite theme with stock operators
East, and with travelers who returned
from the "boundless West" to relate
marvelous tales of what they did and
beheld in that wonderful region.

All ANGEL UHftWARES-
Such a turn iuf upside down of things
as there whs m', the Roxtmry House.
Such a pcriibbliiii of bare floors, and
brushing up vi faded carpels. . Such
planning and co ttilvlng to hide the
grim ijliantouiof gtiiterl poverty whicli
iiaa lung been a guest in the Mouse
hold. Mrs. Roxbury flew about from
cellar to g.irret with her head tied up
in a huge, yellow handkerchief, and
was fretful enough to make little Dor-
ette s life a ouiden to her.
Dorette was only a poor relative,
who did all sorts of drudgery for the
family, and had a home in return, be
sides an occasional cast off dress or bon
net of one of the girls.
There were Aguts, and Harriet, and
Clara, all after the same pattern, tall,
thin featured, and black eyed, and the
raiher scanty wardrobe of each was
overhauled and considered with much
anxiety.
And all this excitement was caused
by a letter from a young man, whose
mother had been , Mrs. Roxbur's
school-mate. He was the fortunate
poe Lessor of a handsome propeity, and
unmarried, and he was coming in ac
cordance with his mother's wishes, to
visit the Roxbuvys.'
Agnes wore pink ribbons, Harriet
wore blue ribbons, and Clara wore
green ribbons, and they all wore curls,
and looked very much like three ani
mated dolls.
It was a ( very sultry day, and little
Dorette, who had just come in from
the pasture, wKero she had been pick
ing wild strawberries for tea, was glad
enough to go arouud to the cool, back
porch to hull her berries. While she
sit there, her crimson stained fingeru
working busily, an old man with a bun
dle on a stick came feebly up the path.
IU' seemed very old and very feeble.
His clothes were poor and faded, but
clean. A long white beard covered the
lower part of his face, but as be paus
ed and smied at Dorette, she noticed
that his eyes were brown, and clear,
and bright. 'Good day, little daugh
ter,' he said tremulously. 'Can you
give a poor, old man a bite of some
thing and a night s shelter r
Dorette get up and gave him Ler
chair. 'Sit down, sir,' she said kindly
'You look tired. 1 will speak to Mrs
Roxbury.'
She disappeared within the house,
and soon the old man heard a woman's
sharp voice.
Supper and lodging r No, Indeed,
Dorette. You know better. You
know we've had to plan every way to
have things suitable for Mr. Wilder.'
Rut, aunt, the poor old man
'Oh, send him alonz about his busi
ness, Dorette,' called Agnes from the
sitting-room.
Then the three w hite dolls came
fluttering out to peep at him curiously-
Horrid looking old creature,' said
Clara, in disgust.
A tramp, said Harriet, shrugging
her shoulders.
You can go on, old man,' said Agnes
coldly, as she looked out the door.
We haven t anything for you.'
Dorette looked at him wistfully, her
eyes filled with tears. 'It's cruel,' she
saiiJ, 'to eend him on this way, he looks
so feeble, and the next hous9 is a mile
away.'
Rless you, my child,' said tne oia
man, smiling at her as he moved on his
way.
And the Roxbury girls laugned
scornfully, and rustled back into the
sitting-room. But the old man had
gone but a few steps, when little
Dorette came running after him, with
a bowl of milk and a slice of brown
bread.
It is my supper, sir, she said, 'but
I am young and strong, and a cracker
will do me for to-night.'
There was a strange light in the old
man's eyes as he ate the bread and
drank the milk. And he watched Dor
ette as she ran swiftly back to the ,
house, her soft, brown curls tos'ng
lightly upon her head.
Rrandon Wilder did not come on trie
ttage, his valise did, however, and he
followed on foot an hour later. lie
was a stalwart, manly, looking young
fellow, his handsome, upper lip smooth
shaven, and his dark hair closely trim
med, his eyes were big, and brown and
shining.
Such a smiling welcome as ne re
ceived, such alis and graces as the
three white dolls put on for his bene
fit. Little Dorette, who had prepared the
supper, only pot a glimpse of him that
night through the kitchen dotir, but
she at once decided that he wa? very
handsome. He made himself very
much at home in the house during his
two weeks Ktay. Mother and daugh
ter were delighted with him, and each
one of the'latter cherished the unex
pressed hope of one day becoming Mrs.
Brandon Wilder. How angry they
would have been had they known that
he accompanied D jrette on Tier berry
ing excursions, and' that he neglected
no onportunlty of becoming better ac
quainted with her.
On the day Derore nis aepanure, as
they were walking down the lane
together, Dorette pulled a briar from
his coat sleeve.
He smiled at her with his bright,
brown eyes, dropped his broad shoul
ders, drew in his cheeks and said, tre
mulously:
Bless, you, my cmui
Why! you are my old man,' cried
Dorette, staring at him with wide-eyed
astonishment.
Wilder laughed out heartily, and
drew the girl within bis arras. 'Dar
ling little Dorette,' he said, 'will you
take your old man for better and for
wcrser My mother was desirous or
marrying me to one of her old school
mate's daughters, and I wanted to take
them unawares. 1 came, as you know
in the disguise of an old man. I near
ly killed myself eating your supper,
poor child, and walked back two miles
to resume my own ciotnes, wnicn I bad
secreted in the bushes. I knew that
day, that little Dorette was the wife
for me if I could win ner.
Me?' faltered Dorette for getting
her grammar.
Yes. me,' -answered' the young man,
kissing her red lips tenderly.
'Will you have me, iioretter
Of course she would have him. She
had never seen anybody half so hand
some, and noble, and altogether splen
did as Brpndon Wilder, and although
she had known him but a fortnight,
she was ready to go to the end of the
world with him.
He took her home to his mother,
much to the consternation of the Rox
burys, aud they were married a year
later, and laugh to this day over the
time when Mrs. Roxbury turned away
an angel unawares.'
They propose to finish the Washing
ton monument by June. 1833.
A ERRONEOUS BELIEF.
How a Mistaken Theory Xearly Co3t a
Well-Known Minister His Life.
Chicaao Standard.
The following remarkable statement,
made by a well known Baptist clergy
man, besides the unusual matter of
value it contains, will be found most
readable and interesting:
Messrs. Editors: I have always
Dfiiieved most firmly in the brother
hood of men, and that every human
being is in duty bound to assist his
fellow man to the fullest extent of his
power. The relation, therefore, of my
personal experience will, I trust, prove
oi oeneut to many thousands in this
land.
My earlier years were full of health
and pleasure. After the completion of
my educational studies I undertook the
profession of teaching, and under the
severe strain to which I was subjected
I gradually became reduced so that
the least exposure or excitement would
bring on sick headache, biliousness and
general prostration. I gave up teach
ing and began to prepare for the min
istry, and although I studied hard my
health seemed to grow no worse. Fi
nally I commenced preaching, and then
my old physical troubles returned. The
slightest amount of certain kinds of
food distressed me and brought on
heavy dullness, dizziness and often
great depression of mind. A change
of room, atmosphere or clothing was
almost certain to cause a cold, accom
panied by most painful suffering. I
attributed all this to the severe work I
was obliged to do in the ministry, and
so did not attempt to remove it. I
next began to grow nervous and no
ticed that my feet were cold, while my
left side and back frequently pained
me. i ieic a drowsy or sleepy sensation
after eating, while a little excitement
caused me to lose my appetite entirely.
At times my spirits would be light and
I would feel as if I might live to a cood
old age, when possibly in less than an
hour my head would reel, my body ache
and I would be overcome with a death
ly sickness. After such an attack a
told sweat would break out upon me
ana uns would oe followed by complete
prostration. It wouhl be impossible to
describe the suffering I endured at
these tirnei, and yet I attributed it all
to overwork and not to any special
trouble or disease.
It was more than a year from the
time the attacks first began that I con
sulted a physician. He examined me
and declared that my lungs were af
fected and that I was on the roaa to
consumption. I derided this idea and
so called upon another dictor. But he
told me the same thing, as did also the
other medical men whom I consulted.
Indeed, they all informed me that un
less I went to Colorado. Dakota or the
sea coast there was little hope. How
ever, I did not change climate, but tri
ed to continue my work as best I
could. A year ago last May and in th
.November and December following I
had three severe attacks of what the
doctors said was lung fever or pneu
monia. I recovered from these bv the
most faithful nursing, but I felt all the
time as I know now that my troubles
did not originate in my lungs, but in
some other organs of the body. It is
true, I felt severe pains in my lungs
and I expectorated a great deal. I was
extremely sensitive to cold, and the
least draft'or change of apparel tended
to bring on a cold. My breathing was
often most difficult and it frequently
seemed that with all my exertions I
could uot get enough air into my lungs
to satisfy them or keep my blood pure.
As I am large in stature, weighing over
00 pounds, and being in the prime of
my usefulness, you can imagine how I
shrunk from the inevitable fate which
seemed to stare me in the face.
One Sunday evening last February,
upon coming down from my pulpit, al
most prostrated and feeling that pos
sibly it would be the last time I should
ever enter it again, a member of my
church approached me and said;
Brother Humphrey, I know just what
you need to restore you to health. I
have been troubled just as you are and
1 am perfectly well now." I thanked
him for his suggestions, but shook my
head sadly, for I felt that there was
little hope for me. However, after I
returned home I began to reflect upon
the subject, and finally sent my son to
procure some of the medicine which
had been so highly recommended. If
faith were an element necessary to the
success of a medicine, it certainly was
lacking in this case, for I was really
hopeless. Greatly to my surprise.how
ever, I began to fell much better, and
the following Sunday I was able to
preach with comparative ease. I con
tinued to grow better as I continued to
use the medicine, for it seemed to reach
my entire system. I was able to
preach, sing and wotk without exhaus
tion, and to-day I am a well man, sleep
souudly, eat heartily, feel no lung
troubles, and I bolieve I owe my lite
anl health wholly to Warner's Sife
Kidney and Liver Cure, which I con
sider a benefaction to suffering human-
ity.
It is only natural that since my re
covery I should feel enthusiastic over
the remedy which had restored me and
also observe its effects upon others. As
a result, I am forced to the conclusion
that very much sickness which is sup
posed to originate in the lungs, arises
wholly from disordered kidneys and
liver. I believe thousands of people
are suffering to-day and looking for
ward, as I was, to a consumptives
grave, when their lungs are wholly
sound and they might be restored to
perfect health by the same means that
1 employed, iteueving these truths
and realizing their importance to the
world. I come out thus openly, and
say that I believe, under God, this rem
edy is a public benefaction, and I would
most cordially and earnestly commend
it to the world as a blessing to human
ity. (REV.) B. F. HUMPHREY,
l'astor jsaptist church.

Rather a Blow Train.
"Conductor," said the gray-haired
man. who had been crainlug his neck
out of the window to learn the cause
of the delay, what's the matter?"
"We're on the side track, waiting for
the freight," replied the conductor.
"Are we tied to a tree?" demanded
the gray-haired man.
"Certainly not," replied the conduc
tor. "Not hitched to anything?" exclaim
ed the passenger, rising in dismay and
makinur for the door.
"What do you want to be hitched up
for?" inquired the conductorsomewhat
disturbed by the gray-haired man's
actions.
"Nothing, nothing; only suppose that
freight train should strike us and drive
us back a foot! Oh, you may ' play it
on the rest, but you can't catch me for
a sleeping-car berth while you make up
for the lost distance! I went over this
road when I was a boy, and now I'm
on my way back home! Give it to
strangers, but don't try It on life-long
passengers." Traveler's Magazine.
An Illinois Woman.

Not a bit of it. She first wrote ajetter

ment with a neighbor, and let it fall in
to his hands. And it about drove
him wild. He fired the servant girl
out of the house, and sat up all night
with a shotgun to shoot the villain who
was after his wife, and has been since
then the most devoted husband in Illi

The Spood of Thought.
Some recent investigations on the
subject are thus summed up in
the American Journal of Arts and
Sciences;
"Sensations are transmitted to the
brain at a rapidity of about 180 feet
per second, or at onc-flfth the rate of
sound; and this Is nearly the same in
all individuals.
"The brain requires one-tenth of a
second to transmit its orders to the
nerves which preside over voluntary
action; but this amount varies much
in different individuals, and in the same
Individual at different times, according
to the disposition or condition at the
time, and is more regular the more sus
tained the attention.
"The time required to transmit an
order to the muscles by the motor
nerves is nearly the same as that re
quired by the nerves of sensation to
pass a sensation; moreover,
it passes nearly one hun
dredth of a second before the muscles
are put in motion.
"The whole operation requires one
and one-fourth to two-teuths of a sec
ond. Consequently, wnen we speak of
an active, ardent mind, or of one that
is slow, cold, or apathetic, it is not a
mere figure of rhetoric, but an abso
lute and certain fact that such a dis
tinction, witli varying graduations,
really exists."
Dramatic Effect. A hussar is
sitting on the summit of lull over
looking a garrison town. His horse is
picketed near by. He is smoking leis
urely, and from time to time glancing
from the esplanade to a big oflicial en
velope he has in his hand. A comrade
passes, and says: "What are you do
ing there?" "lam bearing the king's
pardon for our friend Flinchman, who
is to be shot this morning." "Well,
then, hurry along with it." "Not much.
See, there is hardly a soul on the es
planade, and the firing platoon has not
yet been formed. You surely would
not have me rob my appearance of all
dramatic effect?"
The following data in reference to
the area, depth and elevation of the
chain of lakes constituting over thirteen
hundred miles of our northern
boundary, derived from the latest sur
