Thousands of Bushell Piled on the Open

For the first time in its history, says
Leslie's > Weekly, Kansas has more wheat
than it knows what to do -with. Not only
ar e. 'the. -granaries and bins running over
.-with grain, but the elevators are filled
.and the farmers are still bringing it to
market by hundreds of thousands of
**ushels. The tong dry weather was, in a
sens?, a bonanza for wheat raisers. Much
of the grain was so heavy that it fell to"
the ground and would have been lost had
there been wet weather. But with the long
hot. Clear days every straw could be
gathered, most of tthe farmers running the
threshing machines into the field and haul?
ing the grain from the shocks to the ma?
chine. The grain has all been of the best
Quality and the yield from twenty to
thirty-five bushels per acre. Not less than
80,000,000 bushels w?rbe gathered, and the
high price is giving the farmers a fine in?
As the strings of wagons came to mar?
ket in (the wheat belt the railroads' were
swamped. They could not furnish cars
and the elevators were soon filled to over-"
flowing. Even in the small stations twenty
to thirty teams were waiting to be un?
loaded all day through the latter part of
the threshing. The buyers finally began
piling the grain on the prarie. Great heaps
of 30.000 to 50,000 bushels have been stored
on -the open sod and there they will remain
until such time as cars can be secured in
which to Ship the grain. The sun does not
hurt rt, no one can steal it and so little
rain falls during the summer that there
is practically no danger from that source.
Some enterprising buyers have secured
circus tents and placed them over the piles,
making curious features of the prairie
The Boston Transcript (Rep) points out
that the demand for the ship subsidy
scheme does not proceed from the alleged
beneficiaries theory. "Subsidy or no sub?
sidy, the ship building interests of the
country do not appear to be in a languish?
ing condition," remarks the Transcript.
"The law of supply and demand does not
cease its operations to await legislation,
and just now the ship builders do not seem
to be worrying much about the future."
The real benefits would be confined to a
limited clique, which, with the assistance
of the politicians, are making all the de

I have observed in . looking over the
goods for autumn that all that is CJ
new, paradoxical though it may seer
really old. This, is the modern tendenc
all-things related even in the slightest
degree to art - The painters are drai

In clothes7 I find indications which poi
to the' usual "fight of .the tailors to for
..-hfew fashions. In the . first place, wevs
have the annual cry for color, in evenii
dress and for -the freedom from blac
and-whites iii day dress. All of tnis I ?
not think,will-, amount: to much. The be
tailors are making trousers rather wie
but avoiding ?the, peg-top form. The trou
ers .. are about ' seventeen ?and bne-ha
Inches at "the knee and fifteen and on
half .at the bottoms.- They will hang pe
fectly, straight from the hips. For eve:
ins dress the white waistcoat will be giv<
a very prominent place. These will 1
made both single and double-breasted ai
will -have.-buttons covered with the mat
rial pf, which;: the waistcoat is made. 1
evening dress, coats there will be no chani
worth recording. That garment is
staple fixture and it seems impossible 1
improve' upon the existing standard. Tl
frock coat ;will ': be. practically. the san
as .last year.'
The e"*ening jacket will not be made ?
all by smart taHors. It is now a readj
made, "Cheap John" article, and may i
banlsh?d entirely from the wardrobe of
gentlemans A. new coat something like ti
evening jacket will be made. It will hav
a breast arid side pockets and silk-face
shawl collar and will close with two but
tons. . These coats are designed for hom
and club wear and are worn with singli
breasted waistcoats and trousers of tb
, same material, white shirts, black ties an
either lace or-button shoes. They're jus
handy dress coats to wear down to dinne
or to hang around the house or club in.
One of- the best tailors on the avenu
will introduce several novelties this com
ing. autumn. One of these is an evenin;
suit made of dark gray cloth. The coila
is of the shawl pattern, faced with gra:
silk. The trousers and waistcoat are madi
-of the. same material as the coat Th
suits are designed for wear at stag affairs
; about hotels and clubs and for the theatrt
when women are not to be in the party.
Another new idea is a house suit. It wil
bc . made of a heavy rep sifk and lihe<
. with silk. The colors are very brilliant
The trousers are-made like pajama trous
ers and ? fasten about the waist with t.
broad bit of ribbon, with large silk tassel:
at the ends. The coat is cut double-breast?
ed and has large pockets. The suit maj
be worn with a silk shirt. It "is just foj
wear In one's room
In overcoats the long Chesterfields anc
the skirted coats will be very popular. The
skirted coat will be worn in the evening
as well as during the day. These are eui
like the "Paddock" and have well flared
skirts. The "Raglan" will only be in rain?
proofs and in coverts. The covert coat
will be very popular. It will be cut full
and quite short..
Sack suits will be made on lines that,
while conforming to the lines of the body,
do not .accentuate them. The military
jacket is passe. The new jackets will be
loose and will have perfectly straight
In shoes the principal departure is in the
shape of the toe. The latest model snows
the flat last with the outswung sole, but
the tip is brought in to a much narrower
point than last year's model. Low shoes
will be worn* during the autumn and on
pleasant days during the winter, but many
look upon the low shoe as a mere winter
fad. ' The patent leather shoes with kid
tops will be the formal footwear. Shoes
will be very plain for dress, and quite
elaborately trimmed fer neglige and busi?
ness wear..

Hitherto the scientific' college roan ha
not been held in very high regard. Manta
facturers had wanted men who had grow:
up in shops, "practical" they called there
no "book learning fellows, who .were al

even the most old fashioned soon came t
appreciate that these "fellows," too, cam
from "shops," "shops" in the colleges tba
had a wider variety bf machinery in act
ual use than could ever be found in J
single factory. They grew to see that th<

Then, one after another, the far seeing
manufacturers chuckled. They had
bridged the gulf between capital and labor
and found real master workmen. They
gave these men more swing and power
and kept on the lookout for more youths
from the technical schools. They came to
see that the product from these institu?
tions was getting better every year.
The' technical schools and universities
had won their point. They realized the
growing demand for their m?n. They Re?
doubled their efforts, added to their
courses, consulted with the greatest and
the most progressive manufacturers as to
what, their needs, were and built up more
perfectly, their equipment. Not alone did
they reach out for machinery, but the
newest and the best They had at last
created a new market for m?n.
If a concrete, striking instance is wanted
of this, Sibley College or Cornell Universi?
ty may be taken. That institution has a
very famous railroad course. The "orders"
that come to the college each spring for
graduates are. greater than. Sibley can
possibly supply. She cannot turn out
enough men to meet the demancL Twice
as many as she graduates each year cbtfrd
be assured of positions. For the railroads
say simply: "These are the men we want;
they are the men that will rise with .us
or with some other company. We can?
not now get too many of them." "
And so the demand is spreading out in
many another branch of science.The
American technical schools are turning out
the product. It is these men that in later
years do the inventing and the great
pieces of executive work and make the
; discoveries. ' Is it any wonder :that the
youth of England and the Continent are
commencing to come to this country for
technical training? .
Why be Lived and Died on a Stupendous
Cliff, Within Sight and Sound of the
There is one feature of Cape Malea that
rarely fails to attract the notice of the
most careless voyager doubling;-, it by.
day, a touch of human tragedy and
pathos, belonging in point of chronology
to our own time, but in universal inter?
est to all ages. At the extreme pitch of
the cape a stupendous cliff rises, sheer,
from the fretting, waves for about a hun-"
dr?d feet. Then . comes an irregular
plateau, cr shelf, of perhaps two acres
in. area, the mountain rising, .again
abruptly behind it to a height of about
2,000 feet. This plateau is apparently, in?
accessible, and yet, perched upon, a huge
bowlder in its centre, a mass of/rock de?
tached from the mountain ages ago, is
a house. It Is.rudely built of wooden
fragments Ingeniously fitted together,
but its outlines convey at once, the idea
of its designer having been an Anglo
Saxon. It must.be firmly built, too, for
it is exposed to the full fury of wind re?
bounding from the mountain face, and
- the observer instinctively wonders vwhy,
if a house must be built on 'that shelf,
so terribly exposed a position was se?
lected. Then if he be fortunate- he will
hear its story, says E. T. Bullen, i in the
London Spectator.
About twenty-five years ago there was
a young sailor, who, by dint of hard work,
integrity of "character and firmness of
will, reached at the age of 26 the'summit'
of his ambition-becoming master of what
would then be called a good-sized..steam
ship, some 900 tons register. Upon this
accession to good fortune he married, the
girl of his choice, who had - patiently
waited for him since as . boy. and* giri
-sweethearts they parted oh his first going
to sea. And with rare complacency his
owners gave him the inestimable privilege
of carrying his yoting bride to sea. with;
him. How happy he was! How deep and
all embracing his pride, as,, steaming
down the grimy Thames, he explained :to
the light of his eyes . all the. wonders
that she was now witnessing for the first
time, but which, he had made familiar to :
her mind by his oft-repeated sea stories
during the few bright days between
voyages that he. had been able tor devote
to courtship! The ship was bound to
several Mediterranean, ports, the time. be^
lng late autumn, and consequently the
most Ideal -.season for a honymoon' th?t
could possibly be .imagined. Cadiz,. Genoa,
Naples,-Venice, a delightful tour, with not
one weary moment wherein to wish for'
something else! Even a flying visit to
cid Rome from Naples had been'.possible?
for . the two officers, rejoicing in their .
happy-young skipper's joy, saw'ito it that
no unnecessary cares should trouble him,
and bore willing testimony, in order , that
he should get as much delight out ' of
those halcyon days as possible, that the
entire crew were as docile as. could be
wished, devoted to their bright command?
er and his beautiful wife.
Then at Venice came orders to .proceed
to Galatz. and load wheat for -\ home;:
Great Was the glee of the girl-wife. She ?
would see Constantinople and the Dahr
?be. -Ulfe would hardly be long enough
to recount all the wonders of this most
wonderful of wedding trips. And. they
sailed, with hearts overbrimming with
joy as the blue sky above them seemed-1
welling over with sunlight. Wind and
weather favored them; nothing .occurred |
to cast a shadow over their happiness
until, nearing Cape Malea at that fatal
hour of the morning, just before dawn;
when more collisions occur than at .any
other time, they were run into by a
blundering ' Greek' steamer coming; the
other way, and Cut down amidships to i
the water's edge. To their peaceful sleep;;
or quiet appreciation, of the night's '?il--'
vern-splendors succeeded the overwhelm^
ing-flood;' the hiss and roar of escaping
steam, the suffocating embrace of death;
Bi that 5 dread fight for . life. all perished;
but one-he so lately the happiest. Cf
men-the skipper. Instinctively, clinging
to a piece of wreckage, he - had been; j
washed ashore under Cape . Malea at the
ebbing of the scanty tide, and his-strong'
physique, reasserting itself," enabled him
to climb those rugged battlements- and
reach the plateau. Here he was found?!
gazing seaward by some goatherds,' who^
in search of their nimble-footed flocks;
had wandered down the precipitous. side/
of the mountain. They endeavored, to;;?
persuade him to come with them back,;
to the world, but in vain. He would dive,: ,
gratefully accepting some of their poor
provision, but from that watching place
he would not go. And those rude -peas?
ants, understanding' something of. hisv
woe, sympathized with him so deeply
that without payment or hope of anyV
thev helped him to build his hut and
kept him supplied with such -poor mor?
sels of food and drink as sufficed for his
stunted needs.
And there, with his gaze fixed during
all his waking hours upon that inscru?
table depth wherein all his bright hopes
had suddenly been quenched, he lived
until quite recent years, ".the world for?
getting, by the'world forgot,"-a living
monument of constancy and patient, unr
complaining grief. By his humble friends,
whose language he never learned, he was
regarded as a saint, and when one day
they came upon his lifeless body,' fallen
forward upon its knees at a little glazed
window through which he was wont to
look upon the sea where his dear one lay,
they felt confirmed in their opinion of the ?
sanctity of the hermit of Cape Malea.

Mason and Dixon line. It was owned by
some prominent Methodists of Ithe South,
1 among them the Rev J. W. Bingham.
Some time ago its owners decided to do-,

the 'St Luke's Society as the organization
best su?ted 'to carry out their plans.
The farm will be turned into a sanita?

Little Hope of the Ultimate Recovery of
the Kel ic, but After the Laps? of One
Hundred Years the Heart of the Graham
May Once Again Bent on Scottish Soil.
y+JFrom Chambers's Journal.)
Alas ".that no one knows where-but
somgwnere, certainly-the heart of valiant
James Graham, Marquis of Montrose,
awaits the collector of curiosities! Tossed
among- bits of armor, old china, bric-a
brac, in some old curiosity shop in the !
north of France; possibly now carried tb |
Paris or London, it may lie in some old i
lady's lumber attic; or, trampled years ago j
into the ground of a back garden in Bou?
logne, Pierre and little Marie may turn it i
up any day with their spades. "Qu'est-^ce
que c'est donc," this little old, beaten, !
egg-shaped box of steel? Wiry, Pierre and j
Marie, it holds, if you only knew it, the !
dust of a Scottish hero's heart, and,the|
case itself was fashioned out of his good j
steel sword. j
Montrose knew Merchiston Castle, Edin- ?
burgh,-well; it was, in fact, a second home !
to himin his boyhood, for his sister Mar?
garet -had married Sir Archibald Napier !
when.,Montrose was 6 < > 7 yeairs old, and
he spent much of his tiiie with-them. The
Napiers had, besides, a town mansion;
within the precincts of Ho?yrood House;
but to little Montrose, brought up in the
country,--the old castle, with its barns and
out houses and granges, was no doubt .a J
more attractive holiday home than a dull
town house in the fashionable Cannongate.
One can fancy the little figure, in its
clothes of "green camlet" or "mixed par-; !
gone" and "cloak with pasmcnts," wan-i I
dering with his bow and arrows about: the
'parks, or, maybe,, escaped from;his watch?
ful '"p?dagog," Master William Forcett;
imperiling himself, bpylike, on the battle?
ments bf the castle. ' .?
But to get to the story of the" heart one.
must^ leave the life and hasten to the
^eath pf Montrose. His sister and broth
errih-law had died long . before, .and the
owner of Merchiston in 1650 was Mont
rose's nephew, the second Lord Napier. A
great affection existed -between. Montrose
and his niece by marriage, Lady Napierp
and as a mark of it he bequeathed to her:
his heart-a strange, and, if one must tell"
the ?truth, an embarrassing,, legacy; but
looked :upon by the lady.-"herself as a su?
preme honor and a sacred trust.
Montrose was executed at the Market
Cross of Edinburgh on Tuesday, May 21,
1650. The. extraordinary composure . arid
gallantry of his bearing are well attested".;
.An {unsigned letter in the'. British Museum,'
.written by a spectator while the execution:
was. actually going-on, says: "I never, sa^
a more sweeter carriage in a man in all
m^life.; He is just now turning off from:
the ladder; but his countenance changes,
not." Another account says: "He stept
along.the streets with so great state, so
much beauty, majesty and gravity as
j amazed the beholders. And many of his
enemies . did acknowledge - him -to be [the]
?bravest- subject in the world, and in him a
gallantry that graced all the crowcL'^

feet," his dress \was "more becoming a
j bridegroom: than a. criminal."
i-f; After hanging on the gibbet for- three;
i hours, the body was taken down ?j and the
? head was affixed to the Tolbooth; " the
I limbs were dispersed to various - places
throughout the Kingdom, and the dismezrir.

hastily and none too deeply buried; body;
and. cut from it the heart of Montrose.
The master of Merchiston was in exil? :io
Holland; it was Lady Napier alone wiio
planned the night excursion and saw it
carried out. Did her heart fair ner that
. May night,' waiting at the foot bf the* turi"
ret-stair : until her messengers, Teturning,
put irr herjtiands something not seen, but
felt, with, the square of fine linen all

square of linen and the pair of stockings,
of "incarnate" silk showing ? still darker

treasured possessions' of the ?apair fanU
.-. For a? time, then, the heart was safe at
Mefchistom It was embalmed and-'in?
closed iii a little steel case "made of the
blade of Montrose's sword; the case-was.
placed' in a fine gold filigree box. which
had; belonged to John Napier, the inven?
tor' of rogarithms; and thevbbx in its turn
was deposited "in a silver um.
Before very long,, however, Lady Napier
dispatched the casket by some faithful
hand to the young Marquis of Montrose,
. who, .with Lord Napier and .others of . the
onn?ction, was'still living in exile in Hot
land, and here begins the first part of Jjts
adventures, of which, unfortunately, no
record now* remains.
For many years the'heart was complete?
ly lost sight of, and any. hope of ever re?
gaining it had long been given up,. whehVa?
friend of the Napier family recognized- the:
gold filigree box enclosing^ the steel case
among a collection of curiosities in Hoi-:
land; He .purchased the relic at once and
returned it to Merchiston, at that time
the property of Francis, the fifth Lord
Napier. .There for a second time the. heart
reposed, but not for long. On the death
of the fifth Lord Napier it passed into the.
keeping of his only surviving daughter^
Hester, afterward. Mrs Johnston.
Some years after her marriage Mrs John?
ston was on a voyage to India: with her
husband, her little, son, and all their
household goods, when their ship, which
formed part of the fleet under Commodore
Johnston, was attacked by a French
-frigate, and a stiff fight ensued. Mr John?
ston busied himself with four of the guns
upon the quarter deck, while his wife? who
had refused to go below, remained beside
him, a heroically obstinate figure, holding
by the one hand her little boy, and in the
other a thick velvet reticule, into which
she had hurriedly crammed all the things
she valued most, including, of course, the
heart, %In the middle of the fight a splin?
ter struck Mrs Johnston on the arm,
wounding her severely. The velvet reti?
cule gave little protection-to its precious
contents, and the gold filigree box was
completely shattered, but the inner steel
case remained unharmed. It must have
been some consolation to Mrs Johnston
that, when the attacking frigate retired;
the English commodore left the flag ship
and came on board the Indianman to offer
his thanks and congratulations to the lady
and her husband, who had set the crew
so gallant an example.
Arrived in India, it was easy to find a
clever goldsmith, who constructed another
gold filigree box in place of the one broken,
also a silver urn like the original. On the
outside of the um was engraved in two
native dialects a short account of Mon?
trose's life and death. The um soon came
to be regarded by the natives as something
uncanny, and the report spread that it was
a talisman, and that its owner would
never be wounded or taken prisoner in bat?
tle. So one is. not surprised to learn that
before long the urn and its contents were
stolen, and in spite of every effort could
not be traced. Mrs Johnston, however,
discovered after some time that it had
been sold for a large sum of money to a
powerful chief in the neighborhood of Ma?
