In the following article Prof. ten, an Iowa grain expert, tells _,.. Hoi how grain crop clear to the upper boundary before many years and land values will double as they always do in corn states.' The way to hasten such a desirable consummation is to plant only early-maturing varieties, however small of ear, remembering the larger number of ears will so com pensate for the smaller size as to make the yield per acre practically as large as that from bigger ears in Min nesota localities where the latter will mature. Then, each year, let the farmer select for next season's plant ing the ears which have matured earliest, and which are otherwise the most desirable for seed. By this course an earlier day of maturity may be secured until the corn crop can be depended on to ripen in advance of any probable frost eVen on the upper boundary." iMrtadaL,. ].itfjTj| School District News Notes.

They Spat Out Fury From Tongues Barbed With Flame. i Dragons were important animals in ancient and medieval natural history. Until comparatively recent time no scientist ever thought of questioning the existence of this most formidable of beasts. The annals of Winchester !for 1177 gravely state that m& ,4in this year dragons were seen of many in (England." Gesner, professor of nat ural history at Zurich, gave a detail ed description of the dragon, while Aldrovandus in his "History of Ser pents and Dragons," published in 1640, devoted fifty pages to the monster. A good specimen of a dragon would seem to have been a beast about the size of a sheep, incased in a coat of scales which shone like silver. Its back was serrated like a saw. It pos sessed a long tail, a pair of batlike wings, four heavily clawed feet and a wolvine head, the jaws of which' were armed with- very formidable teeth. The tongue was barbed with fire, and fury issued from the mon ster's mouth, and the head bore a crest. Dragons were the most wicked and vindicative of creatures. They seem always to have been in a tow ering rage and spent the greater por tion of their time in rushing up and down the earth destroying everything that came in their path. The origin of dragons was a disputed point among medieval naturalists. Some maintained that these animals were generated by the heat of India. Others were of opinion that the volca noes of Ethiopia used to belch forth the monsters. One scientist. John Leo by name, declared the dragon to be a hybrid, a cross between an eagle and a wolf. PUZZLED ALL AROUND. A Russian's First Encounter With English In London. A Russian tells a funny story of his first encounter with the English lan guage. The day after his arrival in London he made a call on a friend in Park lane and on leaving inscribed in his notebook what he supposed to be the correct address. The next day, desiring to go to the same place again, he called a cabman and pointed to the address that he had written down. The cabman looked him over, cracked his "whip and drove away without him. i This experience being repeated with two or three other cabmen, the Rus sian turned indignantly to the police, with no better results. One officer would laugh, another would tap his head and make a motion imitating the revolution of a wheel, and so on. Finally the poor foreigner gave it up and. with a great deal of difficulty, recalling the landmarks which he had observed the day before, found his way to his friend's house. Arrived there and in company with one who could understand him, he delivered himself of a severe condemnation of the cab men and the police of London for their impertinence and discourtesy. His friend asked for a look at the mirth provoking address and the mys tery was solved. This was the entry: "Ring the Bell." The Russia^ had with great care copied, character for character, the legend on the gatepost, supposing that it Indicated the house and street.Pear son's. ^W^TC* 1 ^m *mUMm^0a9aa*9mnmw^m **mmm^*u*0n9mu^nW*aamm* This Genuine Rogers Orange Spoon FREE Save 12 "Sunkist" Orange (or Lemon) wrappers and send them to tts, with 12c to pay charges, etc., and we will present you with a genuine Rogers Orange Spoon Of beautiful design and highest quality.
