J. Cheyenne Wells A Letter From Kansas. Sawyer, Kan., August 4, 1912. Editor The Times Cheyenne Wells, Colo. Threshing is pretty near over in this vicinity. J. R. Wheatley & Sons threshed 5050 bushels of wheat and 250 bushels of oats. E. J. Weigner had 1500 bushels of wheat and 225 bushels of oats. My crop consisted of one day's raking from field and had 25 bu. of wheat Mitchell, Phillips, Brown and Freer of south of Arapahoe, harvested in this vi cinity: Jas. Mitchell is making good as separator man for F. D. Mueller. Phillips pitched bun dles for two weeks. When threshing headed grain began, Pry said he was too much of a democrat to be a pensioner or a ■grafter, and left for other fields of labor. Dry weather has materially in terfered with preparing ground for seeding. A rain on Friday, August 2nd started listers and plows again. Wheat in this vi cinity is making about 20 bushels per acre. It is conceded by all old wheat reisers that the wheat belt is moving westward. About 100 miles west of here, wheat is making thirty to forty bushels per acre. Wheat is selling from 75c to 80c per bushel. A number of farmers are holding for SI.OO. An increased acreage is ex pected to be put in this fall. Some are plowing up pastures for wheat ground. Wheatley & Sons expect to put in 240 acres and Ed Weigner 120 acres. Kaffir corn is a sure crop here, making 80 to 40 bushels of seed per acre. Also corn is a staple crop. Alfalfa does well. Grasshoppers are injuring some corn and alfalfa fields. Farmers are obliged to use poison and bran for these pests as the fall wheat starts. E. B. Mason. To London by Airship. (totting Into their h«Tjr padded jieb eta they stepped oat, end leaning over the rail, looked downward. It was about seven o’clock, and the air was as dear as crystal, go far below that it looked like a half-tJbe picture epread on on an open page was a city, vast in Its extent, with Its great build ings and spires showing above the average level and the river threading tnrough. Like the vapor ol the breath on a frosty day, smoke was beginning to rise in laxy exhalations. And the eye could follow the trail thread of the river out through the misty distance to the waters of the sea. “London,” sali the professor. "We'll give them a little entertainment, and they can’t accuse as of lack of appre ciation of the city, because we lust took a look and went away. We’ll stay quiet awhile, and give them Something to talk about."—Top-Notch Magaslne. Plucking Asparagus. They were very young end very hap py and very foolish and very newly wed. And they kept a kitchen garden. "Angelina, darling," said the youth ful husband, "as I was passing through the garden I saw some as paragus ready for cooking. Perhaps you'd like to go and gather the first fruit of the season yourself?" She would lore to, but she wasn't expert In horticulture and didn't want to "let on." If she went alone she might commit some egregious blun der. “I tell you what, Edwin," exclaimed the girl wife enthusiastically, "well go out together. Tou shall pluck it and I will hold the laddet.” Women and Domestic Duties. We do not fall to appreciate the Im portance of women's domestic duties, but we see that In the modern condi tions of life which drive 9,500,000 women Into the struggle for a living outside the home It is absolutely nec essary to go beyond the bounds of do mestic duty. We regret, therefore, most deeply that our efforts to Bt modern conditions of life have by this Imperial criticism been brought Into discredit among the unthinking and unreasonable.

Bathing Brahmins. Constant bathing Is all the time a big part of the religion of the Brah min. One bath a day. at least, is ab solutely indispensable and compul sory, and those who want to prove how bully good they are do It two or three times a day. Remember, we white folk got our way of dally bath ing from India. It was brought back to England by the old nabobs who had contracted the strangb, uncom forable bath from years in India: This was sJsant . American "Outs.” We think It le both fair and desir able that some American novelists should now speak some plain truths to an American audience about the Englishman's love of orderly proced ure which makes a London crowd so easy to handle and nn English village a delight to the American eye that Is accustomed to dnd tin cans, ash heaps and broken-down fences too often In plain view of the passerby on a pub lic street. If It were not a pretty hot summer and there were not already twice as many societies for social re form existing In this country as we really have any practical need for, we should suggest the creation of a new ; International organisation to be en title! in American fashion, "8.

A man who took the trouble to look into the conditions and re muneration of labor has written a book on wages paid in the United States. Here are some facts he has discovered: Not more than 10 per cent of the in dustrial workers of the country receive over tIOOO a year. One-half of them get less than SSOO a year. The individual earnings of % of the women workers amount to less than WOO a year. After exhaustive investigation, the- United States bureau of labor haa concluded that S9OO a year is the low est wage upon which an American workingman can support a family and maintain his efficiency as a worker. On this basis and with conditions such as statistics prove exist, it ap pears that approximately only a little more than one-tenth of the workers of the country are providing their fami lies and themselves with a proper liv ing. These facts are most vital. The perpetuity of civilization is involved. Unless it can maintain its workers, the nation cannot be maintained. It is shown by existing, wage condi tions that there is cause for grave concern over the high cost of living ami the chief duty of American states manship is to find a solution of the problem.
