While the crop was larger than In 1909, In some sections it was badly damaged by rains, bo that the amount of merchantable leans Is no greater than a year ago, hence the wholesale price Is not apt to show much of a change. The Michigan P.can Jobbers' association is holding its nild-winter meeting In Detroit and about '.0 men who handle the I.oston delicacy In car load lots are on hand. The report of J. A. Heath, of Lenox, president of the association, called at tention to experiments that are being made in bean growing whereby the yield Is greatly increased. The use of fertilizer was commended and Mr. Heath told of a farmer In MaconVb county who by careful study and prac tice had increased the yield from thir teen to twenty-two bushels to the acre. He thought the agricultural college should make extensive experiments along this line, for nn increase of five bushels to the acre will mean $4,000, 000 more for the farmers each year. V. P. Cash, of Rlversdale, secretary of the association, explained that the farmers think any time there Is an or ganization of dealers In any product It Is formed to put the hooks Into said granger. He wanted to show them what the bean Jobbers have accom plished. Eight years ago beans brought from J1.2o to $1.50 and during the last two years the price paid the farmers was fully fifty cents a bushel more than that. Judicious advertising has caused the people to eat beans and with the Increased demand the price has advanced. Without organization this never would have been. Secretary of State Frederick Mar tindale told about bean statistics and how they are gathered. He also re minded the Jobbers that the appropria tion for gathering crop reports had been cut off and there would not be such reports other than in the census year.

The 'first long jaunt of the club was taken today, when nibout fifteen of the members walked to the Manhattan location, n distance of nibout ten miles, where luncheon was 'served. The merits of walking undertaken today is about as far as the ordinary individual would care to attempt, It 13 nothing com pared to some of the stunts whic h have (been mapped out by those, who would emulate petVstrlan Weston. It Is expected that throughout the win ter months, most of the tramps will be on snow shoes 'but with tho return of warm weather the club will become more active. Some of tho most In fluential business men of the town are Interested In the organization and It Is xpected the membership will show marked Increases as soon as the (ben efits derived ibeeom.o known. Chicago, ill., Jan. 27. President Murphy's invitation to Cub tans to discuss the possible! changes In tho rules, the overslldlng of second and third bases by players In nn attempt ed steal, and three balls Instead of four for a pass to first ns at present, has caused an eruption In the ranks of base ball players wintering In Chicago that resembles a small Mount Vesuvius In full action. Ret Sweeney, catcher of the New York Americans; Billy Sullivan. Char- ! ley O'Lcary, of Detroit; Herman j Sehaefer, of Washington; Frank Roth, formerly of Cincinnati; Arthur Devlin, 'of the Giants; Joe Tinker, actor-play-j er, and King Cole, nlse actor-player, i are among the local w inter colony who j have declared against the proposed changes. They are not alone In their perturbation, however, semi-pro play ers and managers voicing an opinion that the game would go to the dogs. Jimmy Callahan, Frank McXlchols, Jimmy Ryan, and Chic Prazer are among the latter. "If a player were allowed to over slide second and third bases on nn attempted steal," declared one of the players, "there would be a general ! procession around the eliamond of all jtho fleet runners who were fortunate e nough to get to the first corner. Cobb, Collins, Bush, Speaker and plenty more The Famous I Gives the Best Light at Any Price When you pay more than the Rayo price for a lamp, you are paying for extra decorations that cannot add to the quality of the light. You can't pay for a berter light, because there is none. An oil licht has the least effect on the human eye, and the Rayo Lamp is the best oil lamp made, though low In price. You can pay $5, $10, or $20 for some other lamp, and although you get a more costly lamp, you can't pet a better light than the white, mellow, diffused, unflickering light of the low priced Rayo.

Once a Rayo User, Always One Dtt'.trt Everywhere, if rtt atyeurs. wriUfcr deicriptu circular to the nearest agency ctkt Standard Oil Company ' (Incorporated) i m 1 1 IP of their kind would be more than pleased to see the charge In rules go into effect. It is the danger of over sliding the bags at the present time that keeps these fellows from stealing on the first ball pitched to the batter. "When - they kiow,-is -i't.ires'nt, that they must stick to the bag once they hit It, It becomes a gamble with them to know whether they can do it without breaking a leg or two. If the rule should go Into effect, being flee t of foot they can take a chance and touch the cushion as they p iss cm the slide and not have to slacken speed In coming to a stop." The four to three ball change was put up to King Cole for discussion: "Nix on the three ball game-. That goes all right In billiards, but never In baseball. The handicaps on slabnie n nt present are enough to keep them busy in overcoming them. Whenever a change In the rules has been made ' the poor pitcher has received the worst j of it. Four balls is little enough lee , way to give a pitcher to work on, now J that the ijanie has developed Into a j t attle of brains instead of braw n and i musc le. If the magnates change the rule so th:it only three balls are nec ' cssary to gain first base, then the third i foul should be called a strike and the ! batter declared out. Nix, I say en that c haiiKe." RECRUIT TO HEAD LIST. New York, Jan. 27. Eugene Klliott, a third baseman who was purchased from the McKeensport club of the ohio-I'ennsylvnnla league last fall by President Frank Farrell, has signed his contract for the Season of 1 11 1 with the New York Americans.
