FURTHER FACTS ABOUT WHEAT YIELD BY USE In a Test at the State Agricultural College tfre Experts Found that Early Preparation of the Seed Bed Increased the Yield of Wheat Ten to Fifteen Bushels an Acre. - By L.. E. Call, Professor of Agronomy, Kansas Agricultural College. T HE LARGEST yields of wheat J! and the largest profits result from those methods of seed bed preparation by which soil is work ed early in the season and kept culti- 4 if. - i This shows the increase in yield due vated until the wheat is sown. This was proved conclusively in the .test of early preparation of wheat seed beds just finished at the Kansas Agri cultural College. And the results ob tained this year corroborates' observ-j ations and the results of past trials, j There may be an exception to very ! early plowing on fertile soils in wet j seasons. Upon soils rich in plant food ! and well supplied with moisture very j early cultivation and continuous work- j ing of the seed-bed may liberate plant ; food in such large amounts that the j ' wheat lodges, resulting in a decreas-1 ed yield. Under these conditions, j medium early plowing is advisable. In dry seasons and on soils of aver age fertility the best yields will be produced by starting the preparation :of the seed-bed as early in the sea son as possible.

Thre ... to rotating wheat with corn and oats plots were plowed in September, one seven inches deep, another three inches deep, and the third, which had been double disked in July, was plow ed three inches deep. After they were plowed the three' plots were worked alike. Of these methods of preparation, the plot plowed deep in July produced the largest yield, 35 bushels an acre, and as an average of the three-year trial was produced 4?i .bushels of wheat more than any other method employed. The land plowed three inches deep on this date for the last three years produced 2iy2 bushels an acre, or 13 2 bushels less than the seven-inch plowing. Of the plots plowed in August the one that was worked during the first month after plowing produced 32 bushels an acre, while the other, which was hot worked, produced 284 bushels, a difference of 4 bushels an acre in favor of working the ground the first month after plowing..

An occasional mowing along the roadside is but a slight expense and a coating of grass will soon be the result, instead of noxious and un sightly weeds.

When cut too short at that time, or if cut only once in" a great while, the hot sun on the lower parts of the grass will kill it.

Uncle Sam Can Gauge Horsepower of Human Body WASHINGTON If you want to know your exact horsepower and the amount of energy you can gen erate under any given condition, call on Professor Langworthy at the chemistry bureau, department of ag riculture, and he can give you the an swer. He can register your horse power as easily as the engine manu facturer rates his engines. To Professor Langworthy the hu man body Is but a machine. He is the chief of division of .nutritive in vestigations, and solves the problems of food values. Like any other en gine, the human body has a maxi jnum capacity of so many foot pounds of energ3 and to generate this, a cer tain amount of fuel in the form of food Is necessary. Doctor Langwor thy makes it his business to find what food is adapted for the best results from the majority. He described his unique depart ment In his workshop, surrounded by an endless series of laboratory instru ments, ovens, graduated scales and queer tubes and pipes where every thing under the sun is concocted and cooked up, to see how many calories, how much nitrogen and how much en ergy it will give the human body when it's eaten. In the laboratory Is a. respiration calorimeter, a chamber in which Uncle Sam's scientists put subjects to measure the energy which the subject gives off while he is engaged in dif ferent tasks and while fed different diets of food. The calorimeter is a valuable in strument in many ways. It enables the government to recommend certain diets as being of the greatest use to men and women in different occupa tions, and It enables them to recom mend a combination of foods that are Mingling His Politics With Virgil, and Horace ACCORDING to Arthur Krock, that bright luminary of a favorite Blue Grass paper, who loves to mingle his politics with the classic honey of Vir gil and Horace, Representative McDer mott of the stock yards district in Chi cago is lacking In his appreciation of the beauties of the dead languages. Ar thur, with a cigar one and one-half yards long, in a voice which would have soothed the raging brine, told this yarn in the press gallery. "Robert Gordon, who is now ser-geant-at-arms of the house," said Ar-. thur, "studied Latin twenty years ago, when he was a schoolboy, and evi dently he clings to a knowledge of it. Two members of the house got into a wordy row a few days ago. They reached the point where they began to roar at one another. Mr. Gordon, sergeant-at-arms, sat nervously finger ing the mace eurmounted by the in toxicated eagle which is the symbol of his authority. " 'If I had my way,' he said to the stock yards statesman, "I'd pitch them out nolens volens. "Jawbreakers" Cause Much Laughter in' Senate RNfTROCHiJOR rrRAMUN I I WHEN Henry M. Rose, assistant secretary of the senate, arrived at his office the other day he wore a harassed, hunted look. His mood was not lifted when Senator Gallinger en- j tered with a hearty "Good morning and an apparently radiant emile. Mr. Rose gritted his teeth and showed symptoms of apoplexy. This was the reason: Secretary Rose, acting as reading clerk, was struggling through the first pages cf the tariff bill the day before when Senator Gallinger arose. We have now reached paragraph Old "Mammy" Is Entertained by Secretary McAdoo T OLK who know William Gibbs Mc- , k Adoo, secretary or tne treasury, as an austere, dignified person would have been surprised the other after noon to see him standing in the big reception room of his office in the treasury department engaged In an Intimate conversation on childhood episodes with an old colored mammy. After it was over the secretary frank ly confessed he just had enjoyed the most pleasurable visit fce'd had since he entered the cabinet- The old mammy was Julia Gibson, mother of seventeen children and who still lives in the McAdoo home town. She came to the treasury department to call cn'the secretary, and not only was she received, but she was enter tained for more than an hour while a crush of business and visitors, as well as treasury officials, waited. Incidentally the secretary is treasur ing what he believes to be an invalu able memento of Aunt Julia's visit. She left with hira an cld-fashioned brows daguc-iveotype of his mother cheap, but at the same time sustain ing. The apparatus Itself is six and a half feet square and of the . same height. There Is a window In the side to permit light for reading or studying, a couch, to permit the sub ject to lie down; a pipe through which air enters, and another through which it is expelled. The expelled air is caught and its components ana lyyzed, for part of the food you eat is expelled with every breath. The heat given off by the subject's body is weighed and measured and then carried off through a brass pipe that has a current of cold water run ning through it. The heat-absorbing power of the pipe Is enhanced by a series of copper disk1 that are sol dered to it. The method is merely the reverse of that practiced In bring ing heat into a room by the hot-water method. In one, the cold water carries it away; in the other the hot water brings it In. The exact amount of heat expelled from the subject's body is measured by the flow of cold water, one calorie of heat being nec essary to raise one kilogram of water one degree centigrade. When the bureau of chemistry ex perts decide that it will be a matter of national import to know just the modicum of energy that a diet ol stewed beef, bread, beans and radishes generate, while a man is using hif muscles, they feed their subject, put him in the calorimeter, set him tc work pedaling something that looks like a bicycle, and then stand around and watch the dials and thermome ters. Incidentally, to discover the amount of energy on the same diet that a man engaged in hard mental work gives off, they get a subject whc has a particularly brain-puzzling task to perform and watch him. The last subject was a college stu dent who had to pass a very rigid ex amination. He spent a couple of days in the calorimeter, alternately study ing and resting. When he rested, he lay upon a couch at ease and read if he wanted to, or just dozed. At all times the scientists watched the little thermometers, taking- copious notes. .

"Mr. McDermott sought out a friend: " 'That sergeant-at-arms is a Dago., he complained. "The Chicago man explained the situation. The friend, unable to recon cile Mr. McDermott's memory of what Gordon had said with any language he had ever studied, asked Mr. Gordon about it. Then the friend went to Mc Dermott and explained: " 'He said he would throw them out nolens volens, which is Arabic for head over heels. 24," said the senator gravely. "While the secretary had been doing very well I hope he will read this clearly and distinctly." "Coal tar products known as anidine oil and salts and various other ar ticles," began Mr. Rose, blandly and halted. "I protest," said Senator Gallinger. "He is not reading the complete para graph." Mr. Rose appealed to Vice-President Marshall, but the latter was obdurate. Pitching his voice so It reached for out side the senate chamber and with an agonized expression on his face, Mr. Rose called off the various items. "Toluidine, xylidin, cumidin. blni trotoluol." he chanted. "Binitrobenzol, benzidin, tolidin, dianisidin, naphty lamin, dlphenylamin, benzaldehyde. benzyl chloride, nitrobenzol and nitro- toluol, naphtylaminsulfoacids " j At this point the gravity of the sen- j ate gave way and members joined the I galleries in a burst of laughter. and father that Aunt Julia and her mother had preserved for perhaps half a century. It was to present this gift that Aunt Julia called. Her moth er was the "mammy" of the secretary during his babyhood and childhood. Aunt Julia departed with a picture of the building autographed and with a message from the secretary telling of the joy her visit caused. Aunt Julia also carried away almost a hun dred new nickels.

LOUIS CATHEDRAL SINKS New Orleans' Historic Old Church Building Causing Much Concern to People of City. New Orleans. The sinking of the foundations of the historic old St Louis cathedral In this city is giving much concern to citizens interested In the welfare and prestige of New Orleans, as well as to the members of the church Itself. It is a problem whether the cathe dral can be restored as It was, or will have to be rebuilt, and that is now In the hands of a commission of engi neers and architects to be solved after due consideration. The present cathedral was com pleted In 1794, under the care and from large contributions by Don Andres Almonaster y Roxas, a wealthy Span- hi A"- ? .T....S. -X V - St. Louis Cathedral. lsh nobleman and official of the city, under the then Spanish domination of Louisiana. In 1850, one of the towers having collapsed, damaging the entire , front of the structure, the facade was rebuilt as it now is. but the sinking again of the foundations of a tower presents new problems and demands. Everybody who cherishes the his tory and traditions of the city preserv ed and perpetuated desires that the historic old structure shall be restor ed and made permanent, but there are others who want a new and splen did structure as the chief ecclesias tical edifice in this archiepiscopal dio cese. Not less tha a million dollars, and probably more, will be required to build a new and magnificent ' cathe dral. All these matters should fur nish food for thought, for they con cern every citizen of New Orleans, without regard to creed or part-. OLD NIPSIC IS AN ICEBOX Warship That Survived Samoa Storm Turned to Commercial Uses by Canning Company. Washington. Converted inn a gi gantic Coating icebox for salmon, the old United States cruiser Nipsic lies off the San Juan islands, near Belling ham, Wash., being now a useful piece of property of a canning, company. The interior of the old warship, which is of wood, has been made over into a row of great bins, into which the salmon, brought from the fishing ground, are dumped through a long funnel at the bow and iced. The proc- j ess will not freeze the fish, but will keep them in cold storage until they can be canned. Frozen fish may be sold for table use, but are not thought good for canning. The Nipsic has had an interesting history, though never in battle. Built in 1873 at Washington, she was long attached to the Pacific fleet. She was one of the American warships that were overwhelmed by the hurricane at Samoa in 1SSS with vessels of the English and German navies. All but the English cruiser Calliope went ashore, but the Nipsic fortunately went on a sandy beach. The crew of the Nipsic performed heroic deeds in saving seamen from other vessels. After being hauled off and repaired the Nipsic became a receiving ship at Bremerton, and was later turned into a prison ship.... Last spring she was sold as no longer of any use to the navy. MURDER MYSTERY IS SOLVED i Merchant Who Disappeared From Canada Found in Texas After Long Search. Montreal. The mysterious xiisap pearance some two years ago of Wil frid F. Pope, a well known merchant of Bromptonville, Quebec, has been cleared up. The disappearance of Pope created quite a sensation, for it was generally supposed that he had been mwrdered. Word, however, was received by Chief McCaskill that Pope was well and re siding In Texas. Pope's horse was found one winter morning two years ago, lying dead on the snow, and, there being a long trail of blood, it was supposed that Pope had met with foul play, as he had drawn money on that day. The detectives could find no trace of the man's body and the case remained a mystery until now. HAILSTONE DOWNS A HORSE Marietta and Vinclnity Suffer Heavy Damage by Rain Windowi Are Smashed.

In view of the inquiry now in pros-' re s In London in connection with th $itys motor traffic, including the qne Uon of the motor 'bus, it is of inter est to note that while in 1903 there were 3,500 horse 'busses plying the itxeets of the metropolis this number has now been reduced to 100, and it is sxpected that by the beginning of 1914 the horse 'bus will have finally Tan ished. Richard Tilling, whose well known firrn started the famous Till ing 'busses in .the year of the great exhibition with, a single one-horse "om nibus, recently stated that "there will not be a single omnibus horse seen in London by the end of this year." Old horse 'busses are now used as bunga lows and cricket pavilions, and though the average original cost of each was $700, they are now sold for about ii& a piece. How to Handle Obstacles.
