WHEAT FAMINE I'ltKPKTKI). An Intensely lntoreHtlng article In tho Technical World Magazine for May starts out with the query: How joou will the world starve to death? Last year Sir Wlllam CrooLes pre dieted that unless something Is dono to lut-rcase the yield or wheat per acre, ttiero will noon be a world famine. He pointed the finger of scientific prophecy at' tho fact that the average yield pur acre, tho world over. Is only 12.7 bushels, so writes Professor F. Knorr, of Colorado Ag ricultural collcgo In the Technical World Magazine. Professor Crookes .was denounced as presslmlatlc alarm 1st. But within a year of his state ment the alarming condition he pre dicted has beou reached. "The world has a wheat deficit of 400,000,000 iburheln," says a leading statistical authority. "Tho United States has a surplus available for export of 493, COO, 000 ibushHs, against a minimum requirement of over 000,000,000. We ran supply the demand only by selling from our emergency supply." The population of tho United States increases much more rapidly In pro portion than the acreage added to farming lands used Tor the growing of the great primary crops. Since IS 98 the area devoted to wheat prowlng has been Increased by only a few thousand acres; corn acreage has Increased a little more, but comparatively speaking, only a tri fle; oals nre on a par with wheat Along with the vastly enlarged do mestic consumption goes a constantly Increasing demand for export. 8TOCKMKV8 CONVENTION'. After Homo manipulation, the na ttiro of which w nw not gvirn If has been decided to hold the next convention at Itoswell, New Mexico The Panhandle. Stockmen's Conven tion might just ns well be held In Now York as In New Mexico. . De reasonable. It Is not Identified with N'ew Mexico; It has no business In New Mexico, and the men who used the means instrumental In placing It In New Mexico are not friends of the Panhandle, nor of the stockmen of the Panhandle. ' There are many stanch, true and tried stockmen, friends of the Pan handle and of the Stockmen's As sociation who have denounced the underhanded means. - by which this so-called election wag conducted, In unmeasured and most vigorous terms. They will not attend the convention In New Mexico, but they will sever their connection with the Stockmen's Association, at least un til such time that the members shall come to their senses and look out for their own Interests, and the In terestH of the association, and In the meantime it will bo found that the membership of the association will not be In the ascendency. It 1 a really remarkable fact that, during the three days of the conten tion there was not a hitch, nor a mishap, nor a difficulty, nor a dis turbance, of even the most meager Kind on. our streets, even though the1 Wfrft GftVArn! Vitinfia.t fowners within our gates. The moral, and social, and religious, and busi ness tone of our everyday,, equlll- rrinm was not in the least dis quieted.. T(i our visitors was graciously ex tTtrW !,pv !r the city; they took omTnnrt. enrj th tnrit above cnum- There's a limit to everything ability, ambition, endurance, skill, etc., etc., etc., ad IH. ond there Is also a climax to all human action. D i t for the preHent let us talk of the limit that may be reached In the ex cellence of breeding stock. The Pnl- )y panhandle Is proud of the showing made In stock exhibitions here, some high class Hereford, Durhams and oi hem of world wlk fame bearing blue ribbons from Kansas City, Den ver, Fort Worth, having been beaten by our local stock stock bred, raised and shown by our own John Hntson of Canyon City. We ftato above there's a limit and by CliiKer we think he's about reached It. These rattle are recognized and looked upon by expert Judge as "par excellence" In their particular line and !t'n a great source of satisfac tion and pleasure to know there are no better rattle In the Panhandle today than those raised toy Mr. Hut son, a fact that thin country Is grad ually but rertalnly awakening to. The amateur baHeball team hereto fore known as the "Devils" la no more. The organization Is main tained and the same players parti cipate ln gunies arranged, but the Houston (Jas company has been adopted nud the name of that cor poration assumed. Ex. Yes, indeed, these boys were "toad actors.1' "naughty things." They even smoked cigarettes and dared spit on the sidewalk. Rut since winning two games out of eleven, they have decided to reform, change everything, name, clothes, tactics, oh well everything, and the chances are they'll amount to something yt. O. L. Harry Burton of Australia has ar rived ln thl country. Mr. Rurton Is champion tn a game that will seem both odd and Interesting to Ameri cans. In London, recently, be broke the club-swlnglng record of tho world. His latest feat was the swing ing of two three-pound Indian clubs for sixty-one hours and thirty min utes, without stopping. While per forming this feat he averaged 132 revolution! a minute. The record was made In public competition. "Oh como, all ye weary, "And he will give you rest." The criticisms of Ignorance are encomiums on Intelligence. It has been suggested that one's dally life la a pretty fair Indication of the sort of books one reads. Now la the time to plant trees. Why delay? Make your home beau tiful, valuable and pleasant. Let's see! ' What was the name of the papor who's editor imed Le Paee'a glue so his editorials would stick? The bold, bad plagiarist of the Des Moines Tribune has noticed that the things that people want to know most are usually none of their bus iness. ' Wooden Indians aa cigar signs are to be put under the 'ban of legislative action in Oklahoma. There are large number of real Indians In that state and they will not stand for any counterfeit. . We have lost the convention. Let us forget It and get after a fair, a dairy experiment station, a packing house and everything else we can get. In the meantime let us not forget the premiums that are offered for farm products. Sizing up the proposed new street car franchise in tne proper light, we cannot see where a system running only west from Polk street would of great benefit to the city ln gen eral. We do not believe In doln things by half. The fact that cotton can be raised In , this section of the Panhandle should not be overlooked. Cotton is a big money crop. Cotton, wpuld menn an oil mill for Amarlllo, and an oil mill would menu a valuable adjunct for a'packlng house. 1-pt n, this - fast - growing com- merda! center Amartllo-nnnounce, uttgign&TO, declare a day In the near future eg a clcan.up day. On that day let everybody, man, wo man and child do his and her bout to rid the premises of every atom of filth and rubbish, and aim for a cleaner Amarlllo. Saturday night's session of stiff wind did a little damage hereabouts. Onn man got home with a breath like a pestilence, and a stomach bloated to the full, and with a third ringer of the left hand minus a ring. Ills wife noticed all, and bis explanation of the missing ring was that tho wind In Its wild ravortings had dls ponHCHncd him of tho same. part of what wa known M "the Oreat American dert." Tree ara In full foliage all oaer the city. Amarillo'i trees are mostly small, but there are thousand of them, and In a few years the me tropolis of the plains will be known as tho city or groves, The forerunners In any Important enterprlne In any city are entitled to some consideration by the people of that city. The men who pave the way for a community's advancement, regardless of losaea and personal sacrifices, are true benefactors of that community, and their Interests tihould not be jeopardized In tho pro motion and encouragement of latter enterpriser The recent rains have laid the foundation for the display of pret. tleot horticultural effects ever known lu this locality. The dainty house wife who has spent. a few minutes Inserting a few seeds will have the xatlsfactlon of gazing upon a scene of floral beauty heretofore unprece dented. And the farmer, upon whom we all depend, will have the un equaled pleasure of witnesiilng an unstinted livelihood bursting from Mother Earth, from which we sprang, and to which we will eventually return. It Is anticipated that the Merry Widow hats will have a discouraging effect on the parasol trade. It does look as though it would b0 foolish to carry a parasol In the hand when one las one on the head. the grief, and sweet forgetfulnnss throws a mantle over the sorrow whoso coiiHtant presence would drive us mad. However much w0 may dote upon a fine memory the ability to forget must not bo desplaed. A number of contracts for new residences have been let the pat few days. Doth business and residence lots are selling rapidly of late and there Is every Indication that the building campaign and real estate activity will shortly be on stronger than ever. One of our expert Amarlllo chaf. fours told his passengers the other day that be always ran his automo bile at a speed that prevented tho sun from shining on them except In spots, and they need therefor0 have no fears of getting tanned. A real estnte man lately adver tised four land bargains In the Dally Panhandle. Before the man awoke next morning a customer was on tho way from Dalhart to Chnnnlng to look at one of the bnrgalns. The land was sold In twenty-four hours and the man made over $50 per hour. "Go thou and do likewise." I0 his poetic glorification of Juno Jaines Russell Lowell declared "Then, If ever, come perfect days." Iowans haae been quite, unanimous of late In believing that one does not have to wait until the gladsome June-time ln order to seo "perfect days." In noting these things the Des Moines Capital says; Nothing rarer can be recalled or Imagined than some of the days re cently enjoyed. The skies never senied more fair.. The soft wind has seemed like the breath of heaven. The trees with their unToldlng leaves are bowers not only of beauty but of melody, for the birds are here and the air s constantly aqulver wiht their incomparable sons;. And yet we occnsionally hear the question propounded "Is life worth living?" It. might be worse. Just suppose the girls were wearing hoop skirts to balance those hats? Ideal Panhandle weather still con tinues. It is worth whilo to live In this country for the weather alone. Chancellor Day says that "the rich do not live long," but he cannot make prospective heirs believe anything of the kind. A Kansas merchant advertises: "We want eggs and want them bad." He should have no difficulty In get ting that kind. We are not of a revengeful or vin dictive disposition by nature, but we would like to knock the professional "knocker" from Amarllo to the far thest Ice clump on the farthetit bor der of Alaska. Rain has been falling almost con stantly for twelve daya in some parts of Oklahoma. It hasn't beon very many years since that state was a "Upon what meat doth this, our Caesar feed that he hath grwn so great?" "And now Is It Rome In deed when there Is In If but ono only man!" Slop your flshting for or against palley. Devote the same amount of energy to tho building up of your city and country and you will be doing something that's worth while. There came to our exchange desk this morning a copy of No. 1. Vol. 1 of the Fluvanna Herald. Fluvanna, the paper states, Is a new town ln Scurry county. It is a well edited, well prlntod, promising looking pub lication, starting out with its first Issue, supporting ,Jre Ralley, which of course, Is its privilege under the constitution of the United States, Wo wish for our new sister every success ln her business career The complaint Is made that there are few orators today compared with the number that existed In the days of our fathers and grandfathers. The Baltimore American's answer to this Is that oratory, which Is only ora tory, is not countenanced today as It was a generation ago, when a pretty piece of sentiment, clothed ln rhet. orlcal phraseg and uttered with feel ing and motion, was hailed as great. Tho modern man demands that an orator hare something to say mat ter Is of more importance than sen timent, practical worth than artistic verbiage. . EXCHANGE COMMENT. With the motto, "Farmers to tho front," the politician would noon have to be mado of hard-headed, horny-handed men, Instead of the police court lawyer. Ex. Still A-Yeaniin. With yearning palpatators do we think of those $20,000 macadam streets, and the good they would do Just now In lifting Balllnger out of the mud.

Bollin ger Ledger. A Bantam rooster was crowing around In a stable where a number of blooded horses were stalled. The horses began to rear and kick be cause of the presence of the boast ful Intruder when the latter exclaim ed, "Take care, gentlemen, let us not tread upon each other's toes!" But no one Is going to condemn a Ban tam for his crowing after havlne been pulled out of a mud bole with ins palpatators" still a-yearnln.'

Last Saturday night word was re. reived by telegraph that there would 'be a patient on the night train, com ing from Texlco to St. Mary's Hos pital. Ambulance arrangements were made, and when the patient arrived, he was found to be D. F. Brooks. aged 52 years, a helpless Invalid, af flicted with several ailments and ab- si l itely without means. Of course the man Is to be pitied, and his lot Is a sorrowful one. But that has no bearing on the actions of the people at Clovls In the matter. The officials, or whoever it was that sent him, simply 'bundled up one of their pauper case8 that they Bhould have cared for and sent hlni to Ros well as a burden on the people here. jThey imposed on the good nature of the Sister of St. Mary, knowing they would not turn him out, and In this I cheap, heartless manner shipped him 1 nff vrfttlAlif fnnrla n . ...

The power of memory Is a won derful acquisition and akin to It Is tho ability to forget. It would be a sorry old world If the power of for getfulness were withdrawn and poor, suffering humanity wero forced to Btand constantly In the presenco of the reverses, the disappointments and the bereavements of life.

When the tree of that wood Is plant ed, thirty years must elapse before It becomes fit for tho first stripping of the bark, and even then the cork Is of no use, being much too coarse. After eight years more a second crop arrives, but that again is of but noor quality, and eight years more, mak ing forty-six years in all, must pass before the grower can reap any ma terial benefit from the tree. Then. again, the greatest care is necessary for the manufacture of the , best champagne corks 'because should they be defective in size and shane the quality of the wine will suffer. For that reason they are not made by machinery, like the ordinary cork, but are cut by hand, as finer worfc can be done that way. Philadelphia Ledger, We don't remember ever havin taken time to Inspect the stopper, and It has been so long ago since we bad an opportunity of Inspecting the contents of a bottle of live water so we think we'll take It for granted that the corks are good.
