A Native Editor Says Worse Than,the
Boxer Rising May Happen.
Vom the Shanghai Mercury, September 1.
The Universal Gazette claims that mis
sionary troubles are bound to break out
afresh. The Boxer uprising was due to
long and growing enmity between the con
verts and people. The result was that
80,000 or 40,000 Christians fell, the allies
came to Pekin to quell the disorder, build
the burnt churches, build monuments over
the graves of the murdered missionaries,
punish the officials and gentry who abetted
the Boxers, in fact, the missionaries got
everything they desired (?)
Some say that after such a punishment
there will be no more troubles, and foreign
ers preaching In China may sleep on a lofty
pillow without anxiety. The editor is of s
different mind and replies: "If things are
not differently managed it will not be many
years before a calamity a thousand-fold
worse than the Boxers will again over
whelm the churches, and why? Because
there has arisen a vicious distinction be
tween convert subjects and ordinary sub
jects which has even found its way into
public dispatches. The convert subjects,
it is said, must be protected. Those who
are not converts hear the words with a
suspicion that they are not to be protected.
At any rate, that the convert subjects are
to reap benefits peculiarly their own.
But the officials make a big. mistake when
they lay the blame on the missionaries for
siding with their converts. For if China
could but only hold the scales of justice
evenly and love her people, all this appeal
ing for protection to outsiders would as a
matter of course cea'se. If our own officials
were known to be honest, where would be
the necessity of outside interference? There
would be no encroachment on their author
ity if the officials understood~ the limits of
their power and the need of promptitude in
Yesterday's paper told of Jung Lu's
friend's enemy, failing to get justice for
the attack made upon his shop and as
sistants by his (Jung Lu's) henchman, re
solving to enter the church, whereupon
even Jung Lu took fright. Now, even if
this report Is untrue it shows the general
opinion that even the highest in the land
fear the church.
Another instance in point comes from
Kuel An-hslen, in Chekiang. An old wo
man lost her child and applied to a for
tune teller for help. She told her to go
south and she would find it. She went
south and, 1o, she came to a church, where
she inquired after her child. The church
people said they had not seen It. Shortly
after the woman found the child on the
north, and, thinking it would please the
church people, informed them of the fact.
They, however, were angry, suspecting the
woman of a design to stir up a riot, and
had her sent to the yamen. The official
gave her 300 blows, which was entirely be
yond the intention of the church people,
who merely wished to catition the woman.
Herein the official showed his flattery of
Another case comes from Sungkiang of
this province. A scholar had rented a
house to a man who after a while would
neither pay the rent not vacate the prei
ises. The scholar entered a suit against
the tenant, but the official would not at
tend to the case at alL. The wily scholar
was not to be non-suited In that fashion.
He handed in a second petition in which
he adopted the style of "church people,"
and the official opened his eyes and did
him justice forthwith. The official then
asked him which he belonged to-the Pro
testants or the Catholics. He replied: "To
neither: I am a Confuclanist." And why,
then, did you write that title, -'church
people?" "Because I knew that without
that magic name I would not get justice."

Besides being a subject of vast economIc
importance, the breeding of plants Is a fan
cinating study and a most enchantiig
pastime to those interested &n the welfare
of the work. The Department of Agricu
ture has issued a bulletin on the subject
whidh says: "It is one of those subjects
in which students like to specialize.
"In looking toward the future, it seems
probable that plant breeding will receive
far more attention than heretofore. In
European countries much more attention
Is given to the Improvement of planis than
In America. In two to*ns in Germany
there are nearly thirty large seed firmst
with an aggregate capital Investment prob
ably five times as great as the capital
of the general seed firms of America. In
that country owners of large farms breed
and raise seeds of wheat, oats, rye, sugar
beets, potatoes and other crops. They get
better profits from this work, and they
build on their farms -chemical and seed
laboratories where the seed selection Is
done systematically. Those farmers to
whom they supply seed which will make
their yields larger are also benefited.
"In England the average yield of wheat
is over thirty bushels per acre, while In the
United States it Is below fifteen bushels.
This difference is in part due to the bdtter
preparation of soil and the moister cli
mate; but doubtleSs It is also due in part
to the selection and breeding of wheat dur
ing a much longer period than has passed
since wheat was first grown In this new
"Breeding plants, since the literature on
the subject is growing in volume, gives op
portunity for wide study. Especially as an
art does the breeding of plants give the
opportunity for the development of skill
of a high order. The breeders of planEs,
as well as the breeders of animals, need 1
to make more of a study of records, of
relationships; In a word, design, collect
and study pedigrees of the plants and ani
mals with which they deal.
"In America Indian corn has been tred
for numerous conditions. Early, large
yielding dent varieties have finally been
bred for southe-n Minnesota and other
northern states. -
"What farmer would think of returning
t3 the smaller ears of fifty or one hun
dred years ago? Yet It Is quite possible In
another half century, by more careful
breeding and with greater attention to the
composition and quality of our corn, to
make as important improvements as have
been made in the past. It Is probably safe I
to say that the farmers, by adding 25 per I
cent more to the care and labor of rotating I
crops, manuring the soil and cultivating
the corn, could secure 25 per cent larger I
yields. And it is probably just as safe to r
say that if one-tenth of 1 per cent of the t
corn crop's value were devoted by the gov- c
ernment to breeding this plant so as to
better adapt It to each locality, 10 per cent V
more could be added to the yield. While
better farming and better cultivation are t
ultimately the more Important in the aggre- I
gate, plant breeding Is relatively more Im- a
portant until our crops are brought up nore
nearly to their Dossible maximum of yield. a
"Our ten leading field crops in the United c
States yield an annual income which is I
valued on the farm at something like $2,- t
000,000,000. No man who has earnestly and
intelligently tried to increase the yields of
any one of these crops will doubt the as
sertion that by breeding alone, other con- h
ditions remaining the same, an average in
crease of 5 per cent could be added to the
yields of these ten crops in twenty years by
a line of thorough experimentation. Prices 1
remaining the same, this would add $100,- 9
000,000 annually to the aggregate valuation
of these crops; or, in twenty succeeding 1
years, $2,000,000,000. If to the increase in 0
value of our principal field crops are added I
the increase in values of orchard, garden, c
greenhouse and forest crops, we will have c
a much greater aggregate gain. All these
crops are capable of improvement by breed- 1
ing, the same as corn and wheat, and the 9
general principles to be followed are the r
same throughout. In many of the flower c
and vegetable crops changes nave already e
been produced by breeding that are far
greater than the anticipated changes in the 'I
yields of corn and wheat. . t
"In the case of sugar beets, for example, J
the percentage of sugar in the juice of the c
roots has been increased probably 100 per t
cent by rigid scientific methods practiced J
or. a large and expensive scale by Euro- l<
pean seed growers. This work, started by
Vilmorin of France, has made possible a
large industry, profitable to the farmers
and to manufacturers, and has resulted In I
much cheaper sugar for the entire world.
Here, as in other lines of breeding, the
principles and practice are comparatively
simple and easily mastered. Remove it
from the domain of abstruse reasoning, C
where some teachers of heredity place it, n
and plant Improvement becomes a practical c
business proposition, an important affair of a
RAISING MACARONI WHEATS.
Well Adapted to the Semi-Arid Plains a
of the West, t
About 15,000,000 pounds of foreign maca- t
roni are imported Into this couuitry each ~
year, solely because, being made Irom true

better quality than our domestic macaroni, ~

product would be saved to this country if E

factories with the right kind of mat.'rial, il
the Department of Agriculture has been '
making extensIve Investigations on the a
Macaroui wheats differ radically from the a
ordinary bread wheats, and in the field look a
more like barley than wheat. They are ex- I
tremely resistant to -drought and resist the t
attacks of leaf rust and smuts to an un-t
usual degree. On the other hand, they will
not withstand hard winters, and are usually 1
grown as spring wheats. South of the C
thIrty-fifth parallel they may be sown In &
In the case of macaroni wheats it is not

million or more of acres can thus be given E
to profitable wheat raising which on ae

ought to be an addition of tlyirty to fifty
million bushels to the annual wheat pro- u

AD of the ldbmbd& of the board of po
Iee comm nerswere preset at the
regular monthly meeting of that 6ody held
sat evening. The session, which was brief,
was presided over by Mayor George L.
Simpson. The discussion of sagters per
alning to the Improvement of the police
force took up modt of the session. It was
lecided to defer the election of a poi*ce
nan to fill the vacancy caused by the resig
lation of Officer Keith Davis until this
vening. The resignation of Mr. Davis was
=mbodied in the monthly report of Catef
ebster, which was read by the secre
ary. Accompanying the repost was a edn
nunicatlon from the retiring officer, thank
ng the board for kind treatment. Mayor
limpson remarked that Mr. Davis had
nade a good and- efficient officer, and said
hat he regretted to see him leave the forct.
Lhe resignation was accepted.
The matter of electing a new policeman
was taken up and the mayor said that as
Moncil at its last meeting had taken no
iction on the resolution for a reduction of

laual. Attention was called to the custom
of the board In such cases, requiring the
Lpplicants for the position to appear for
physical examination. A list of thirteen
Lpplicants was read, and it was ordered
hat they be notified to appear before the
'oard this evening at 8 o'clock.
Penalty for Smoking.
A resolution recently offered by Mr.

ound smoking on the street, while on duty,
oe dismissed from the force, was next taken
Ip. The resolution was amended so as to
[lake the first offense punishable by a fine
f $1, permitting policemen to smoke be
ween the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., and
tilowing them the same privilege in the
nen's room at the station house. In this
orm the resolution was adopted. After

Mayor Simpson has announced his inten
Ion of vetoing the resolution passed at
he last session of council granting the Old
)ominion Glass Company the use of one
ialf a square of ground near the old canal
acks. Under the terms of the resolution
he company was given the privilege of
sing the land for ten years for $20 per an
um, with the option of purchasing at any

ompany wanted additional ground for the
nlargement of its plant by constructing
rarehouses. Buildings were erected several
rionths ago on land near the old canal

luaband and Wife Wanted a Divorce
and Wanted It Quick.
An incident somewhat out of the ordinary
ras noted today within the somber walls
f the city hall. A well-dressed couple
Lan and woman-passed along the main
arridor of the building, both glancing at
i the signs, as though in quest of some
articular office. It is by no means un
sual for well-dressed couples to enter
to city hall, bult for the most part they
re in quest of licenses to wed. The coun
tnances of the couple today, however, were
o serious for the matrimonial allegation
"Where do you get divorces?" finally
sked the man, in a tone almost savage,
f one of the court criers.
Although completely staggered, the off!
lal managed to gasp,. "What?"
"We want to get a divorce, and we want
quick," the angry stranger explained.
The crier inquired If a petition had been
led and if the applicant had obtained the
ervices of an attorney. -The answer being
the negative, the crier called a lawyer
rho was standing nearby, and the latter
iade clear that certain preliminaries areI
tsentlal before the matrimonial bonds are,
a a rule, severed. The indignant man
nd the equally angry woman recited their
rievances. She was determined to go on
lie stage and he objected. That was the
!Lle of woe In a nutshell.
The lawyer suggested that as there had
eon no cruel treatment the simplest ground
n which to secure a divorce woul be do
trtion. That course, however, would re
uire at least two years to obtain a decree.
"Humph," said the woman sneeringly, as
lbe turned to her husband. "Your Ignorance
l' law is .appalling. You told me all that
'as necessary wa to come here to the
urt house and aign a book."
"I'd admit Ignorance or anything else to
et rid of you," growled the man.
"Well, then,. I'll desert you," replied the
'oman. "These gentlemen, are witnesses
what I say. I hereby desert you,"
The disappointed couple thereupon de
irted frons the building in company, and
