Duke'Farson was for long a well known flgure about Chlcago Prospe r Ing In the business world, he chose religion as more suited to his inclina tions than mere money getting. He founded the Metropolitan church of Chicago and the Holiness society, and his fortune went largely Into the sup port of these institutions. At the re vival meetings, which were held fre quently, he was the leader. He con tributed a large amount of money to wards the purchase and furnishing of a palatial home for the society in Waukesha, and he likewise took an active part in the establishment of branch churches In various parts of the country. In 1906 he announced, while on a trip to California, that he had sold out his business to his brother. John Farson. and would in the future de vote his time and fortune to the cause of the church. Since then but little has been heard of him, and his name has not been on the assessor's books for the last two years. Now he is In the bond business at 240 l,a Salle street, where the assessors found him. He failed to Schedule his personal property, and the board of assessors, finding that in the past he had been rated as a wealthy man, assessed him $25,000 and added the legal penalty of one-half that sum. This assessment brought a protest from the one time millionaire, and when he had explained the paucity of his personal possessions to Mr West and the latter had in turn, explained the matter to his confreres on the board the assessment was reduced to $760. _ Ever notice how the other fellow is applauded for saying the good things you might just as well have said had yon only thought of them?— Chicago News.

On this account, the balanced ration, the care ot milk cans, and testing of cattle, to see which one gives highest persentage of butter fat, are questions of little home Interest. Wheat Is the staple crop, with some berries, and much fruit. "T. W.

"In handling the wheat, after it is cut by the binder, there is no at- | tempt at stacking, but eight or ten teams may be seen In a field, hauling the sheaves to the thresher. A team ! lines up on each side of the machine, and perhaps two men on each load begin pitching off the sheaves, which are caught In the hopper and dragged . through by the self-feeding device, no ) one untieing or cutting the bands. , The thresher will handle 3,000 to 3,500 bushels per day, and at busy moments It turns out three bushels io [ the minute. Wheat this year brings j 97 cents per bushel. "While this Is going on, fire to seven teams will be hauling away the wheat from the threshed to the wharf, where a steamboat or gasoline launch will call for it. Nearly every farm along the Chester or the Sassafras River has its own wharf, just as a factory along the railroad has its own siding. __ "One of the sights of that locality is Captain Judson's boat, near Quaker Neck Wharf, or rather a mile inland there knows Captain Judson, who thirty-five years ago set himself the task of building a craft to go and search for gold. He knows a good place to look for treasure, away off on the sea, and this be will not reveal, but when bis boat Is ready he hopes to try the voyage, and may bring back huge wealth.
