Editor Graham Vreeland, of the Frank

of the Climax should have taken otf some
of the time he used in studying Scrip

read it. There it is again, and coming
from a man who neither knows Scrip
ture nor can write, it is a little too much.

William Cullen Bryant in a pessimis

this:
The melancholy days are gone,
And the sweetest of the year
Come with this bright Autumnal time

In Richmond, where whisky is only
known of by legend, it may not be inter
esting to state that E. H Taylor &Co.'s
warning in regard to the overproduction
of whisky, is creating much discussion
among distillers of ihe better quality of
liquor, while the manufacturers of rot-

the manufacturers of higher grade goods
for the purpose of increasing their own
sales in the event of a shortage in the
cheaper grades.

Five Billions For Farmers.
With a total quantity of agricultural
products twenty-lwo cents loss than in
1812, the year's gross revenue for the
farmers will be six per cent, more than
last year, according to a bulletin issued
bp the Orange Judd Company, which
publishes several agricultural papers.
Total value will be $5,000,000,000, or
$269,000,000 more than a year ago.
Te reason for this extraordinary con
dition is, of course, the high prices per
unit for several of the large cereal crops.
Corn, for example, will show a total vol
ume of 20 percent under that of 1912,
but with a value of -of 42 per cent better
will produce for ihe farmere $100,000,000
more than a year ago.
"The wealth th farmers will receive
for their decreased tonnage," says the
report, "also has these two decide! ad
vantages: Less labor and expense will
be required for harvesting and market
ing the crops this year, at a time when
farm help is scarce and high,
"Only the decrease of about 50,000
tons in the weight of these staples will
enable American railways to move the
crops of 1913 without a veritable break
down of the transportation system, i i
view of the heavy tonnage of other
freight and of passenger traffic caused
by the resumption of good times.
"The outcome of the agricultural sea
son, therefore, is profoundly beneficial
to industry, commerce an finance, taking
the country as a whole, although certain
individuals and limited sections have
been hard bit by the drought.
'The shortage in new corn is not a
disaster. It is a blesaing in disguise.
For with over 10,000,000 or old corn on
hand October 1. the aggregate supply of
maise this autumn - will bs some 2,750,-
000,000 bushels. This just about equals
the corn supply following the harvest of
1911 only two years ago, when the yield
was 2,C50,090,000, and the supply of old
corn was then only about one-fourth as
large as now." "
The wheat output will be the greatest
in quantity and value in the country's
history, and the value for potatoes, $-'24,-000,000,
or $40,000,000 more than last
year.

Who Tailor Best In Richmond
John B. McFerraa
We have had it on our heart for some
time to write something about John B.
McFerran, of Louisville, who was born
in old Warren and who never forgot it.
We do not believe it has ever been our
pleasure to meet him personally. But
of his benefactions to his old county.
none can forget, except that Mr. McFer
ran does not himself proclaim it.
Four meetings were held throughout
the various sections of the county during
the summer and autumn, the object of
which was to bring the farmers into
closer touch with each other in order
that their educational, social and com
mercial life might be brought into belter
relation.
It was only after some reluctance that
it was drawn from Dr. Cherry that Mr.
McFer. an had agreed to stand behiodhim
for a reasonable sum in carrying out his
plans. This had to be told in a modest
way to the people, because everybody is
suspicious of anything he is gelling for
nothing.
But we were speaking of Mr. McFer
ran. There is no marble slab erected to
him, but down in the hearts of the peo
ple of Warren county his name and bis
good deeds will be enshrined while life
shall last. After all, is this not the most
enduring monument? Bowling Green
