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.

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-
"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
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

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
"Mrs. Jones," said she, "what's dat

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
Mr. Jones is still wondering whether
the man with whom ho somewhore ex

disposing of tho remains of tho dead
DEATH OF JOHN M. DRURY.
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.
The funeral services were held on
Tuesday morning, at the church of the
Immaculate Conception, Solemn high
mass bbing conducted by Kov. Fr.
Chevreau as celebrant with Fr. Dean
and Fr. Ilorr as deacon and sub deacon,
assisted by Fr. Itedding of Maumee
and Fr. Sawkins of Toledo.
Mr. Drury was united in marriage
with Miss Gertrude Bfllabrand of Per
rysburg, in Sept. 1003, and although
they have always resided in loleao,
1 hey haye been regarded with great
favor by Perrysburg people, and Mr.
Drury had made many friends here
for his gentlemanly character and his
high business qualifications which
made luni a valued citizen and his de
parturn is deeply deplored.
Although his sickness during the
past three months had been a hard
trial, his patience never forsook him
and no word of complaint ever passed
his lips, and he gave every evidence of
being ready to accept and patiently
endure whatever a miction wus to be
his, and his last moments were those
of peaceful submission to the will of
the great Master.
