In nine cases out of ten the straight, bread way leads to bankruptcy sometimes much farther. Chicago has recently witnessed more than the usual number of smash-tips In the "smart set." The latest Is the (allure of W. V. Tracy, broker and so ciety favorite. Mr. Tracy hai failed for more than a million, in Chicago and New York the Tracys have been admitted social leaders. They followed the hounds ever the fashionable Onnnntsln course and occupied tho most conspicuous boxes at the horse shows. Now the house of Tracy Is bankrupt. Society grieves. But this Is not tho only loss the "smart set" has re cently suffered. There are the John Dickinsons and the Sidney C. Loves and the Vernon Dooths, the last named being "Master of the Hounds" and a shining light In the temple of tho socially cloct. The Dickin sons, the Loves and the liooths went the pace, and the pace ended In the receiver's office and before the bank rupt court. Lart, but not least, there was Broker Reyn olds, whose butterfly carer In the ranks of the "smart set" ended where prison shadows He. No wonder So ciety grieves and refuses to be comforted. Who will be the next victim of the social Juggernaut? The hounds are tugging nt their leaihes and the polo ponies are stamping and fretting In their stalls. It takes barrels of money to be in the "smart set" and play the game. Who will be the next victim? Chicago Dispatch. showing In the decade than wheat In regard to Increase, but the gain In each of these cereals has been compart lively slight. Out there may be some relief near at hand which Mr. Hill overlooks. All the European producing countries raise more wheat to the acre th'an we do, and on poorer lands. The high prices will offer a powerful induce ment to our whfat growers to adopt some of the meth ods of their counterparts across the water. The waste ful practices on our grain-growing lands are discred itable to our farmers, as well as unprofitable, and the campaign of education which the high prices has set on foot ought to bring results which will tell in tho crop yield of the near future. In aggregate wheat pro duction the United States has still a lead over every other country, but It Is not as long as formerly. Russia, Prance, Italy, Argentina, Austria-Hungary, Germany. H Spain and Canada are large wheat growers, but only Russia, Argentina and Canada and one or two others of those countries are exporters of wheat When the day approaches that we can no longer supply our home needs the duty on wheat will be removed, and It may be removed long before that time. Probably the low prices of a doxen years ago for wheat will not return again for the United States.

We raise now about 650,000,000 bushels of wheat In the United States annually under good crop condi tions. This will leave ua but 20,000,000 bushels as a surplus for export, while In the past we have exported upward of 120,000,000 bushels annually. So everybody can see -that we will soon need all our wheat for our own people." Possibly this forecast Is correct, and therefore high prices for wheat will be the rule hereafter. On the face of the figures the outlook for any large surplus of wheat again Is not bright. The wheut crop or 1898 was 675,000,000 bushels, while that of 1908 was about 670, 000,000. In the ten years In which tho population of the country increased about 21 per cent the wheat yield remained stationary, although twice within the decade In 1901 and 1906 the wheat crop crossed the 700,000,-000-bushel mark.

But the women, who make a lasting Impress upon the world In the home, in the arts and In literature the women who give dis tinction to "society" In the best sense of that term, the women who have the most elevating Influence main tain their sway and dress "properly" without spending a fortune every year on their wardrobes.

HaaMVMMHOTKMBMaMm-BMBMBHaMaaaBBKB MBMMB THE THE ELLII6I0I HOWJO fill! H" A good many people who are kind hearted and believe in kindness are sorely lacking when It comes to prac tice. "It is always a good plan," say a writer in the Emporia Gazette, "to remember that a sick horse or cow suffers as much as a sick uncle, and the thing to do is to help or put the beast out of Its misery." This story Is told to clinch the point: An Emporia man went out to his barn the other day to feed his foam ing steed the usual allotment of hay or oats, and found the animal tied up in a knot In a corner of the stall with colic. There is nothing like the suf fering of a horse with the colic, be cause he has "such a lot of him in side," as tho children say. This Emporia man is kind and hu mane, and It pained him to the quick to see old Dobbin in such plight. But It never occurred to him -to send at once for professional assistance. In stead he mixed up some medicine ho had on band, together with about a quart of turpentine and gave It to the horse. When that had no appreciable result he tried soda and singer, and all the pepper sauce In the house. Then he recalled that cne of his neighbors had the reputation of belug a cow-doctor, and as cows and horses seemed to bo somewhat alike he summoned him. The neighbor came, regarded the an imal wisely, and said that he would have him up and eating In half an hour. Then he got some warm water and some tincture of aconite and pour ed It Into the horse. All cow doctors use tincture of acon ite, which is a deadly poison, and when the animal dies, as it always does, they declare that they were call ed too late. The horse got worse. Finally the man, thoroughly nlarm ed, telephoned for a veterinary, Tho man came just as the horse died, and Is now being abused by the late own er, tho cow doctor and the nolghbors because he could not rescue the dying steed. Tho next time but we will not predict for there" will be no doubt within a fraction of a foot and a fifteenth of a second. Perhaps It Is cruelty to Inform speeders of the sword of Damocles hanging over them. It Is certain they cannot profit even by a detailed de scription of the Ingenious machine which will bo their undoing. They may hope to escape only by mending their ways. Tho deadly Invention used by agents of the National High ways Protective Society consists of a double lens camera, fitted with a split second chronometer. The lenses are of equal focal length, one placed above difference In size between the twe Images corresponds to a mathemati cally accurate distance In feet between the first and second positions of the automobile. A table has been worked out on this basis, both experimentally and with the aid of trigonometry. If, for example, tho second Image Is one third as large as tho first, the automo bile must have been -60 feet further from tho lens. Supiose the ascer tained distance to be 68 2-5 feet while tho chronometer registers a full sec ond of time, the speed of the automo bile Is proved to be 40 miles an hour. A magistrate or Jury can study pic tures and negatives and be convinced of the accuracy of the method. The number of the car Is there to clinch the case. New York Tribune. TO TRAP AUTO SPEEDERS. In Its crusade against automobile speeders, and "Joy riders" in particu lar, the National Highways Piotectlve Society has resorted to a new Inven tion, which la as terrible to malefac tois of the road as the Dertlllon sys tem and the telegraph aie to ordinary criminals. The Invention is being tried out at the piesent time or rath er, Its Hist fruits are being preserved in secret y, so that a sudden and over whelming exhibition of Its scope may be Bhcn in the near futuio. With out warning some line day a number of scorchers, who base Been no speed traps nor been molested by watch carrying cops, will be haled to cotut and confronted with the iriefutable eldenco of their lawlireaklng. It will make no difference whether tho off gi He was committed In a lonely road In tho outskirts or In a crowded street. There will be no chance to dispute the testimony on the ground of human error on tho part of the accuser, for the accuser will bo somo tiling meclmnUally and mathematical ly Infrlllblp.

The oper ator does not alarm his prey by ex posing the camera for a front or side view plctuie. He waits until the whizzing machine has passed, present ing Its back and the vulnerable and Important number board. Then he presses the bulb, which opens the shut ter of the upper lens and starts the chronometer going, with a second hand covering l." divisions of a circle. Almost Immediately the operator pi esses tho bulb again, and this time tho shiitter of the Jower lens opens, and the chronometorls simultaneously halted. It takes nd expert to make these two snaps at the back of a speeding car. Whether the time be tween the two exposures Is a small fraction of a second or a full second Is immaterial. When the plate Is developed It I shows a largo Image on the space ex posed by the upper lens, when the car i was close by, and a smaller image on the space exposed by the lower lens, while the second hand of the chronometer Is pictured as It started on the dial and as It stopped. The The CommoB Need. Unless one has traveled the arid re gions, one has no Idea how good water really is, declares Dr. William T. Horn aday In "Camp Fires on Desert and Lava." He explains further that he does not mean Apolllnarls, but Just plain old-fashioned well, or "water hole," or desert "tank" water, as the case may be. This appreciation of water made the party sympathetic In regard to the fate of certain wild fowl which appeared at the "tank" near which a night's camp had been es tablished. Just at sunset, when our little lone some world was settling down for tho night, some one excitedly announced a discovery. 'There are two ducka In the tank!" Some one else quickly caught up ft loaded shotgun and hurried along tho side of the embankment to the upper end of the water. Secretly, I hoped that those ducks would take alarm and fly away In time. To shoot tnose little lonesome birds that bad flown on weary wing over a good hundred miles of waterless des ert, clear down from the Gila River, seemed to me like a sin against na ture. Those two individual ducks seemed entitled to our hospitality and protection. The god Vishnu elected to preserve them. When we heard the report of the gun our spirits sank; but when the hunter quickly returned with the terse announcement, "I missed them!" some one said: "I'm glad of It!" and to our sur prise he answered, "So am II" Tho Unconquerable Foe. John Bright once described the va riety of stage fright with which he was familiar with telling and quotable point. He was discussing public speaking with George Dawson, an emi nent Englishman of his day, when, ac cording to a paragraph In the late Da vid Christie Murray's "Recollections," he said: "Tell me, Friend George, you have, I suppose, as large an experience In public speaking as any man In En gland. Have you any acquaintance with the old nervous tremor?" "No," Dawson replied, "or It I have It Is a mere momentary qualm, which Is gone before I can realize It." , i'Now for my part," said the great tribune, "I have had practice enough, but 1 have never risen to address an audience, large or small, without ex periencing a shaking at the knees and a sense of a scientific vacuum behind the waistcoat." $1.00 !
