"I never saw general conditions so excellent all over the country, and in talking about the corn crop I can only say I know there are no unavoidable rocks, and if corn suffers it will not be a disaster, but a delay because we will have to swing our national ship f trade around that obstruction and it will mean only a little delay In the progress of our voyage of prosperity."

O'NEAL DISSOLVES SOME FALLACIES LECTURE GIVEN AT METHODIST CHAUTAUQUA YESTERDAY UNDER DISADVANTAGES, MUCH APPRECIATED. A large number of people were dis appointed at tlit Methodist chautauqua last evening In not hearing the lecture of Kmest Wray Oneal. w hich had been announced for tho evening. Mr. Oneal arrived yesterday noon prepared to give his lecture at 2:30 as had been previously arranged. On being in formed that his lecture had been nost. poned until the evening in order to give more people an opportunity to hear him. Mr. Oneal told of another engagement for fhe evening that ne cessitated his taking tho afternoon train. His lecture was therefore given In tne afternoon. Mr. Oneal appeared to a disadvan tage as the audience had come to hear a concert and not a lecture. His theme was "Popular Fallacies," and ho won the appreciation of all. He based his talk tm the supposition that all men were seeking success, and spoke particularly to the youth In his audience. Ho emphasized three falla cies In particular: First, that success could le attained without health or proper physical development; second. that success could be attained without work: and third, that the goal of a man's ambition could be reached with out morality. Under each head he gave several concrete examples and also the exceptions to his argument, if there wero any to give. 'To make a successful career with out a proper physical development of tho body." said Mr. Oneal, "Is like the mounting of a Krupp gun on a frail carriage." He spoke of the great care exercised by tho ancient Egyptians In regard to tho body, even after death. Milton nnd Peetlmven were exceptions to the convral rule of health, Milton being hampered by his blindness, and Hoethoven by his faulty hearing. "The necessity of hard work In the lives of siifcessful men and women Is Illustrated by Kdison, who said. "Oen- lous Is not Inspiration but perspira tion." Genius 'was further defined ns the result of hard work by Carlyle's. saying, "Genius Ta concentration. Under the division of morality, Mr. Oneal said that success was getting In to the rlht relations with other people. and this can only be done by exercising a due amount of morality. In conclusion, reputation nnd char acter were compared showing that ap pearances do not always prove the man. These lines contain the meat of his closing remarks: "Reputallon is seeming, ciiumvivr o being." "Reputation is the photograph of the man, character Is the face." "Reputation shows the outside, char acter the Inside" , Reputation will get a position, char acter will enable us to retain it." "Reputation Is what men say of us. character Is what tho angels know." Mr. Oneal Is a very rapid speaker and held his hearers deeply interested. Ills lecture wns Instructive ami nis words seemed to come from a wide ex perience showing a wonderful power of observation. Iist evening the Apollo quartette and bell ringers mado their last ap pearance. Tho quartette made a de cided hit at the chautauqua. The mu sicians, with their varied instrumenta tion, their splendid solo selections, their clever bell ringing, their large flection of popular and classical se lections in all lines of music, nvade n wonderfully good impression on their nuditors. The bell ringing wns n very Interest ing feature of the program, and popu lar songs such as "The Storm King." "Swanee River." "Glow-worm," "Auld t., Kvm." "and -America." were very well received. The most beautiful selections on the mandolin, flulc, and guitar, wns undoubtedly the overture, "Poet and Peasant" by Suppe. Mr. Holmes showed himself to be an oxpert with the comet In the selec tions of the J.rnss trio, and Mr. Well:' amused the audience iby his stunts on the banjo, et one time playing the tre molo atunpnniinent and the melody at the same time. The lecture ? v Mr. Wbkershnm this evening promises to be bn of the best In tho course and there Is no doubt that the attendance will be large. The wolf In sheep's clothing runs tho risk of being devoured by the oth er wolves. ItYDtPIVf UTS Alt! GENERALLY FAIR TONIGHT AND SATUR DAY. LIGHT T MODERATE VARIABLE WINDS.
