It is possible within a few years to. double the average production of corn per acre in the United States, and to accomplish it without any increase in work or expense. It should not be understood that the present corn crop will be doubled, but that, the same yield will be produced on a smaller number of acres. If fifty-five or sixty bushels are raised on one acre instead of two, the labor of plowing, harrow ing, planting, cultivating and harvest ing will be greatly reduced, and con sequently tue cost 01 production will be reduced. Poor corn crops -. are . usually attributed to unfavorable weather conditions, and quite often this is the true cause as there are-f few summers during which the crop' does not suffer more or less from ub- favorable weather conditions at somje stase of its growth? However, there are other conditions which . are . re-! sponsible for the low production. These conditions are under the direct control of the farmer and it is up to him as to whether" he "will increase ' and in many eases double his present yield. So. 7-'10.

Than Six Thousand Millions of Dollars. New York City. While the Amer ican public has been surfeited with the recitals of the muckrakers, and stories of fraud, chicanery,, corrup tion, outrage and oppression have followed each other in such bewilder ing succession that the ordinary cit izen can hardly keep abreast of the headlines describing them, much less become acquainted with the multitude of details, there is one process, started years ago, which has never halted, and which steadily and relentlessly keeps it3 course, utterly regardless of, :-nd unaffected by, the narratives of fraud and corruption that ostensibly form the important news of the day. It is the Morganization of the United States. A list of the present holdings of the Morgan group would make all former lists look pitiable and trifling In comparison. . The one billion dol lars of wealth controlled by it, which used to be spoken of as if the amount were so stupendous that it could, h&rdly be grasped ' by the human mind, has grown to the still more Incomprehensible figure of ten billions. The process of ' wiping the small capitalist . off the financial slate through the superiority of the Trust form of organization, has of course j never haJted, but in addition to this, we have seemingly arrived at the point where the large capitalist the erstwhile master of from ten to fifty or one hundred million dollars is be ing absorbed: or eliminated with ap parently as; much ease-as -his smaller brethren. This is the day . when the large capitalist is called upon to stand and deliver.. ' i' ' Hardly had the late E.' H. Harri man been buried when the fact was made public that the control of hi3 vast railroad properties had passed into the hands of the Morgan - in terests. - . .- , . The results of the panic notably en riched this financial group. Coal and iron companies, railroads and indusr trial plants by the dozen were irre sistibly drawn In their direction. Little more .than three years ago, Charles W. Morse had consolidated a coastwise steamship trust, an ice trust, and established a chain of banks. Morse has disappeared from the financial world disappeared into a Federal jail, where he Is now known merely as "No. 2814" and his hold ings, have gravitated In the same gen eral direction. Pending the confirma tion of his sentence he wa3 permitted to leave the prison .for the purpose f securing seven, or eight millions , of collectable assets, which he duly turned over, tcr the creditors and was then thrust into jail again. Heinze, the estwhile copper king, has been eliminated. ' His holdings, accredited at about the same as that ot Morse sixty - millions have dis appeared, and in all probability have taken the same course. John R.- Walsh,., banker," railroad promoter, mine owner and general all-round financial crook, has gone the same-route as Morse. A search for jthe heirs of his financial ' power would-' disclose the trail running in the same general direction. In a, little more than a week. after the. municipal elections in. New York City, came the news that the financial control 04 the enormous assets of the Equitable Life Assurance Company had passed from -Thomas F. Ryan to J. Pierpont . Morgan. - - v And this is hut the beginning of the passing of Ryan as an active financial power in the economic life of the country. Signs are not wanting that his grip on the existing traction prop erties of New Y$rk City is being loos ened, and the ever ready hand of the Morgan group, is waiting to act as 'receiver.- . . ; .. . ' - Just as Mr. Ryan compelled August Belmont to stand and deliver' several years ago,- so how is Ryan himself Narrow Gauge Line Will Be V Built to the Garden of Eden. Constantlhdple. A narrow gauge railway Is to be constructed tp the site of the Garden of Eden, which. Sir William Willcocks, British advissr to the - - Turkish Ministry of Public Works, thinks he has . located. Ac cording to Sir William's measure ments the homestead of Adam . and Eve was situated in the Harilah dis trict, about 250 kilometers north of Bagdad. The spot is an oasis situated in the centre of a vast desolate plain. i traversed by the Euphrates. ' s '.

In the face of these impressive ex amples of the ruthlessnes of one-man power there has grown 'of late even a greater personal dominion of the financial world. By purchase, by com bination and by community of inter est there is now a J. P. Morgan power which, embracing banking and trust, insurance, industrial, and transporta tion companies, controls or influences capital amounting to more than six thousand millions of dollars.
