Tho avorago corn production In this country Is about 25 bushels to tho aero. In a good year It may rise to 30 or thorcabouts. Yot hero and thero In many localities, we hear of farmers "Who got CO, 75 and occasionally more than 100 bushels. Tho averago pro duction of wheat tho country over Is barely 15 bUBhels; It Is not much over 20 In localttlos especially favorable for wheat raising. Yot occasionally 75 bushels are raised. Tho south does not got half a bale of cotton from an ncre, nnd very many of Its acres yield a good deal less. Five years ago n Mississippi former had ICO acres of land and a mortgage of $900, and couldn't got credit nt tho store for a plug of tobacco. But ho had brains enough to bo Impressed with tho ef forts of tho department of agriculture to lncreaso production, and he was willing to bo taught by tho "book far mers," says the Philadelphia Record. Tho first thing ho was told tqdo was to break the land eight Inches deep. Ho had small plows and two ponies that woro unequal to this task; but ho borrowed a team from a neighbor, and instead of "making" three bales from 12 acres, ho "made" ono on a Blngle acre, all that ho had applied Intensive culturo to. He got half a bale an aero in 1908, three-fourths of a bole on acre in 1909, and he expects ultimately to get two bales from an acre. He is out of debt, has four One mules, and bo has a son and a daugh ter In college. The storekeepers are chasing him around trying to sell him goods ,on credit. He was willing to learn from the "book farmers," and It has paid him well. Tho French government hns reach ed the conclusion that tho drum is no longer necessary In military affairs. Acting upon the recommendation of a military commission, orders have been issued to cast It out of tho serv ice. Tho history of tho drum is most ancient and honorable Ttfo Egypti ans employed it and tho Greeks at tribute its 'origin to Bacchus. Tho Spanish conqueror, Plzarro, is said to have found drums in South American temples. Tho snakes of Ireland, wo Are told, fled from the Emerald islo because of the drum beats of St. Pat rick. The French report sots forth that tho drum is a serious encum brance in marching; that rain impairs Its usefulness; that its calls cannot bo distinguished in timo of battle; that it consumes a period of years to turn out an efficient drummer, and that by abandoning the drum many thousands of youthB will bo released from the service ' Perhaps the worst Infant prodigy on record was Christian Heineckor, born at Lubcck in 1721. At ten months ho could speak and repeat every word spoken to him, at twelve months ho knew by heart a great portion of tho Bible, at three years ho spoko and read French and Latin as easily as his native tongue. In his fourth year ho employed himself In tho study of religion and church history, and his fame as a scholar spread so that the, king of Denmark sent for him, and was astonished at his learning. Just before ho was flvo, however, Heineck or fell sick and died and tho world breathed more freely. Tho bonfire and matches as play things for children are gathering in their regular harvest of victims. Thd bonflro should have as vigorous pro hibition as tho toy pistol, which is now almost extinct With the dangers of matches, only parental vigilance can deal. But it Is entirely possiblo to lower tho numbor of infantile burnt offerings annually offered up on tho altar of carelessness. Eggs that havo been In litigation for threo years havo boon put on salo with tho declaration of tho Now Jer Bey board of health that they aro at least not poisonous. Litigation may presorvo eggs, but it spoils near ly everything elso. I Tho man who takes his pay envoi Dpo homo to his wlfo without open ing It may not buy very many Jjeors tor tho "bunch," but ho can always greet tho rent collector like no old pUmi. , I to Disappearance Something of a Mya- tory to Mr. Jones, Though Ho la a Roast of .Beef to the Good. It was found necessary to do away with tho family cat because Bho hnd developed gorms and tho doctor said It was dangorous for tho children. But this cat was tho children's particular pot, so It was decided simply to havo her disappear, with no funeral or flow ore or Juvonllo tears or a tombstone In tho back yard. Accordingly tho animal was chloroformed and then Mr. Jones did tho romalna up in a neat parcel of convenient shapo and took them along when ho started for his placo of busi ness In tho city In tho morning, Intend ing to drop tho packago in tho rlvor. In tho train before tho river wns reached Mr. Jones saw tho packago re posing in tho rack abovo his head and determined that was a good placo to leavo It. So when ho etarted to got out of tho car he did not tako tho pack- ago down. "Hoy, thoro, Jones! You'ro leaving your package," called out a friend. So Jones turned back and got tho pack ago. On tho boat ho was surrounded by a numbor of friends and realized that to drop tho bundlo overboard in their presence would rcqulro a lot of expla nation and doubtless result In more or less joking at his expense. So he took tho packago to, his office with him. Ho saw tho Impossibility of disposing of it thero and determined to get rid of It on tho boat during tho trip back home. But thero again he wns surrounded by his friends of tho morning trip and took tho package to the train with him. An attempt to get off tho car without it resulted just as It had in tho morn ing. Mr. Jones thus found himself returning to his home with the bother some bundlo and ho knew tho children would meet him on tho front porch and Insist on knowing what it was. Accord ingly ho made his wny homo across the back lots, deposited tho bundlo on tho kitchen porch and finally got to tho front of the house without detec tion. Fifteen minutes after ho had seated himself on tho front porch with tho solution of his great problem tho cook appeared. "Mrs. Jones," said she, "what's dat extra roast of beef out on tho back po'ch?" Mr. and Mrs. Jones both went back. Sure enough tho bundlo contained a six-pound roast of beef. It only remains to say this story is a true one. Tho thing happened as here written. Mr. Jones is still wondering whether the man with whom ho somewhore ex changed bundles had much difficulty in disposing of tho remains of tho dead cat. DEATH OF JOHN M. DRURY. "V In the death of John M. Drury of Toledo, Secretary of the National Wheel Company of Perrysburg, this village loses a prominent business man who fias dono much to upbuild the business interests of the town. Mr. Drury has been in poor health for sever enl months and every possible effort had been made to restore his health, but without avail and he pass ed away on Sunday morning at 1 :30 o'clock at the age of 44 years.
