The body of William Gaynor lay in state Friday night at the foot of the grand stairway of the Town hall of Liverpool. It was an unprecedented honor that Liverpool paid the dead executive of !he American metropolis, for never be fore had anyone lain in state in the historic edifice. Covered with the Stars and Stripes and with the British Union Jack draped over its foot, the casket rested on a catafalque brought here from Westminster Abbey, Lon don, and on which has reposed the bodies of many of England's most fa mous men. It was last used ' at the funeral of Field Marshal Lord Wolee ley in St. Paul's cathedral last March. Candles in the great golden candel abra from Westminster Abbey cast a yubdued light up the wide stairway and over the detail of picked . men from the Liverpool police force who 3tood guard all night about the cata falque. - John Sutherland Harmood-Banner. lord mayor of the city, who is absent, on vacation, had telegraphed the city authorities of Liverpool to do every--r.hing in their power in honor of the dead mayor of New York, and they carried out their instructions in mi nute detail. . Six policemerrrwho were relieved at Intervals, stood at attention around the casket all night and continued this duty until the body was removed from the town hall Saturday for the sad homeward voyage on the Cunard line steamer Lusitania, on which a special mortuary chapel has been pre pared. Eight uniformed quartermas ters will form the guard of honor dur ing the voyage. Rufus Gaynor was on the point of collapse. He expressed deep gratitude at the honors accorded the late mayor . here.

Mackaye, author of -Jeanne d'Arc" and "The Scarecrow." The president and Mrs. Wilson were in the audience. The play was well received. It is a protest against the slaughtering of birds for millinery purposes. With a dramatic skill which sur prised her closest friends, as it was her first attempt, Miss Wilson voiced In soft and appealing tones the spirit of the bird lover exhorting the hunter to forsake his weapon. The sharp crack of a gun, followed by the sudden fall of '"Orals, the bird spirit." Miss Wilson's role, marked the climax of the piece. Wounded and sobbing, "Ornts" Is consoled by the fauns, poet, dryad and naturalist, who dissaude the repentant plume hunter and 'make 'of -him a bird lover.

' On November 12, 1912, a few .days after he was - elected governor, Mr Fuller ; continued, SSulzer walked Into the office of Harris & Fuller with ten $1,000 bills in his hands.. These, he. paid on his account his indebtedness, owing to other transac tions, having increased to $60,613.

Commissioner of Agriculture New man estimates that the com crop for . this year will be IS bushels an acre. The yield last year was 30 bushels to the acre,, so that the drought has cut the corn crop almost half in two. This estimate is made up from the reports received for making his September crop report One hundred and fifteen estimates of the cost of growing an acre of con- show an average estimate of $13.35. Last month's estimate of the cost of growing an acre of wheat was $10.16. It is interesting to note that the gen eral opinion is that 1 costs $3.79 more to grow an acre of corn than an acre of wheat Corn would have to bring about 77c per bushel on the average. based on this- estimate of $13.50, to pay ' the actual cost of : production Corn has dropped to a condition of 58.4 per cent, which means but little more than half a crop. Burley tobac co still remains at 65 per cent, but dark tobacco has dropped to a condi tion of 54 per cent Alfalfa is 70 per cent, cow peas 84 per cent and soy beans 72 per cent of an average crop. The spring sown clover shows an aver age condition of 63 per cent The leguminous crops have held their own better than any other crop during this drought. Blue grass is given 60 per cent, orchard grass at 62 per cent and pastures, as a whole, are very inferior. Live stock has suffered very ma terially on account of short pastures and scarcity of water. The condition of horses is given at 90 per cent cat tle 83 per cent, hogs 85 per cent and sheep 92 per cent. The condition of poultry has likewise declined. Chick ens are given, as 92 per cent turkeys 80 per cent and ducks 85 per cent. All fruits have deteriorated.. Apples are small, many dropping from the trees,, and their condition is shown as 67 per cent peaches 74 per cent, plums 58 per cent and pears 58 per cent Garden conditions are deplora ble, dropping to 44 per cent. Abundant rain falls would not help anything as far as this year's crops, are concerned. The corn crop would grow worse instead of better should abundant rains fall now; the same is true of tobacco. The danger in the curing period for corn and for tobac co is in having an- excessive amount of moisture. Rains now would only have a tendency to spoil what is left of these ' two crops. Moisture i3 needed very badly for fall seeding, and would benefit next year's crop in this respect. Good rains would im prove fall pastures. Water for stock is a serious problem in many localities and many fires are reported as a re sult of the dry weather. A match dropped in the pastures In the condi tion in which they are at present is almost like dropping a spark in a pow der magazine. The water supply in many towns in the state has given out. and fire losses as a result of the drought are bound to be great. Requisitions Are Issued.
