If you are a buyer of corn you will

not. It depends entirely on the point
of vip.w. 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

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
' On Monday, the 2nd of Febru-
aiy Prof- Durham will direct a
