In either event the follow ing dispatch shows what is happening to the market on a number of agri cultural products. An Associated Press dispatch from New Yorkhas the following which is of more than passing interest to con sumers of corn at this time: "Nearly 300,000 bushels of Argentine corn was being unloaded in this port today, and millions more from the South American Republic is under contract. The importations are the direct result of the removal of the duty on the staple under the recent tariff act. "More than 1,000,000 bushels has been received in the United States since the tariff went into effect, the first from the Argentine ever brought here, and already the competition with American, corn has forced a decline in cash values. "Thirteen ships are now en route from the Argentine, and one Ameri can manufacturing concern which uses corn in the manufacture of syrups and kindred products, has 5.000,000 bushels from that country under contract for ubiucij.

Editor News: After seeing that my letter was printed in the columns of your last week's paper, will try to come again with a short letter. The school at this place is pro gressing nicely. A few of the boys thinking they had to have their cig arettes, undertook to walk the streets of Berea with a cute lit tle cigarette in their mouths They tlid that all right, but be fore breakfast next morning, they were summoned to appear before Prof. Edwards, teacher in charge of common school, where they were tried and found guilty, so by complete manage ment, he got them to the depot.. i ju3t in time to board the first North-bound passenger train. Sorry to give them up, but this js strictly not a smoking school. So boys if you want to learn to i smoke don't come to Berea. j With the exception of the tobac- co habit a boy can take up any ! thing he wishes, but you certain- i ly can not "chaw" tobacco or j puff a cigarette, and be a stu- : dent of Berea College. Get rid I of the habit and come and enjoy i your share of as good schooling as vou will find in the State of (Kentucky. ' On Monday, the 2nd of Febru- aiy Prof- Durham will direct a ' walking party, consisting ot j ,. t ten boys and the same amount of . , ,fnr . n- i .. girls to "West Pinnacle," the point fron where Daniel Boone among the number of this crowd, and if so will try to tell later as briefly as possible, the inter esting things seen and heard.
