BELDING, -:- MICHIGAN. nn s mm w Will Average Only About Seven Bushels to the Acre. CORN AND OATS MUCH BETTER Corn lia d i Wonderful Growth, Jlakloc Vi for 1'i Kate Start The Total Number of Dcitlis In Michi gan for August was 2,951. Monthly Crop Itullrtln. The monthly crop report, issued ly Secretary of State Stearns on the 10th, says that on the whole August was the most favorable month for agriculture generally that we have had in many years. The final intimate of Michi gan's wheat crop c ' this year will he made next month. Th present aver age estimated yield per ..ere in the southern counties is six 1. Is, in the central counties nine bushels, and in the northern counties 11 bushels, the average for the state being seven bush els. So much field was plowed up and so many lields cut for hay that it is diflicult to fix the average actually harvested. The quality of this year's crop is poor. Mueh of it is light in weight, while in many localities it is badly colored, the discoloration being due to the wet weather in July. As compared with an average, the quality for the state is 7t'. It is estimated that 12 per cent of the wheat crop of ls'.iy is still in farmers' hands. This season has been very favorable to oats. In some localities they were not harvested and stored before the frequent rains came, but on the whole the crop is much larger than the aver age. The estimated yield for the state is 3C bushels per acre, while the qual ity is 0.". The estimated yield of rye for the state is 15 bushels. In mst counties corn has made a wonderful growth during the past month. Frequent showers and the prevailing high tem perature enabled the crop to make up for its late start. In some eases corn has been blown down by the high wind, but this did no material damage, except to increase the cost of harvest ing. From present indications Michi gan will this year harvest one of the largest crops of corn ever grown in the state. There are some complaints that beans have been injured by excessive rains; also that they have grown to the vines too much. The probable yield as com pared with the average is S2 for the state. The probable yield of potatoes for ' the state is 03 per cent of an average crop. In some cases the crop has been damaged by blight, and, on low ground, by water. Cloverseed has been in jured some l3 insects, and in some places has not filled well. The pros pect is for TO per cent of an average crop. Pastures have been exception ally good, and in most counties live stock of all kinds is in excellent condi tion. There ar some complaints of lambs dying from various causes and some reports of swine plague. 2,954 Deaths In the State In AtiRnat. There were 2,0." t deaths in Michigan reported to the department of state and published in the monthly bulletin of vital statistics for August. This number corresponds to a death rate of 14.5 per 1,000 estimated population, as compared with a rate of 12.4 for the preceding month, and a rate of 13.S for August, ISCi'j. Tl" mortality of the state of Indiana ft - . iust was 14.3 per 1,000, or p a1 the same as that of Michi-. The number ot deaths returned for August is 44. more than for July. There were fcll deaths of infants un der 1 year of age, an increase of 2.o over July; 203 deaths of children aged 1 to 4 years, inclusive, and 030 deaths of persons aged 03 years and over.

As compared with the preceding month, a slight increase is noted in the number of deaths from diphtheria and croup, a considerable increase in the fatality of typhoid fever, and a large increase (308) deaths in the mor tality from diarrheal diseases of chil dren. This latter increase is charac teristic of the annual "slaughter of the innocents," chielly from "cholera infantum," a type of disease which is entirely or largely preventable by proper sanilarv and hygienic methods.

"The per son who three years ago would have asserted that Michigan would stand second as a beet sugar producing state," says the report, "would have been classed as a crank, but he would have been speaking correctly, as that is Michigan's standing fct present. When the legislature of 181)7 made an appropriation of S10.000 for the pay hient of bounty upon sugar manufac tured during the years 1807 and 1808 some of the lawmakers thought the amount too large, yet it fell short $24, 2(52.00, with only one factory in oper ation."

Pefore the eyes of a multitude of witnesses on the afternoon of the lfith, two youths were drowned in the Detroit river by the capsizing of a small sail boat. There were six in the party, four having been rescued. At the time of the accident the wind was blowing pretty still' and the sea was quite high for the river. The captain of the boat found himself unable to bring her about in the wind so he was forced to allow the boat to go around with the wind. As the sail jibed the two young men who were drowned allowed themselves to be swung to the lee side, and their weight together with the weight of the swinging sails caused the boat to capsize. Got.

JUektHa Due to I'utvuoleoouie Food and luipur Air. 3 This Is one of the most distressing If bta which we so frequently notke In the poorer districts of our largo town. The trouble which Is common ly known as "rickets," Is mainly due to unwholesome food, bad ventilation and insanitary surroundings generally, and is rarely met with in children who are well cared for. There la great comfort, however, in the knowledge that the deformity can be cured by suitable surgical appliances if steps are taken in time, and before the bone3 are set in their disflgurins shape. The symptoms are first ob served about the age of six months, and may be recognized by slight fev erishness. swelling of the Joints, and various other symptoms which are not otherwise seen. Where there is any suspicion of rickets a doctor should be consulted without loss of time, as there may be complications, and in the meantime do all you can to remove the cause, by giving a nutritious diet of an easily digested kind, plenty of Egs, if the patient is old enough to take them, and good milk. Give a daily tepid salt bath, rubbing the body with a rather rough towel, and obey Implicitly all your doctor's advice. Remember that unless your child is well cared for in all the minor details of everyday life, you are making the task more difficult for the doctor as well as prolonging your child's pain and suffering. Perfect cleanliness, constant fresh air. as much sunshine as is possible, and regular baths are the strongest aids in fighting such a foe. Regarding the medicine which should be given to a child who is af flicted with rickets we will not pretend to advise. Iron and lime enter very largely into its composition. We sug gest nourishing food, sanitary sur roundings, and perfect obedience to the doctor's rules. CONCERNING DIVORCES. ma of th Danger Periods In Married Life. Somewhat more than sixty-five per cent of the petitions for divorce in .England and Wales are presented by ithoee who have been married from five to twenty years. In the early years of married life the proportion ot husband to wife petitioners are 'much the same. But a larger percen age of petitions are brought by wives after twenty years of married life. The highest figures are in relation to marriages of between ten and twenty years duration, which is obviously the most trying period of married life. Thus in 1893 21. 6S per cent of the hus bands' petitions and 17.42 of the wives' petitions relate to couples who h.d lived together between ten and twenty years. During the period of Ave yara and less than ten the percentage of husbands' petitions is 13.7S and ot .wives' petitions 13.41. In marriages of twenty years and upward the hus .bands' petitions amoun to 6.39 per .cent and the wives petitions to 8.14. In France and Italy divorce is sought mostly by people who have been mar ried five years and less than ten, the percentage of cases being 36.66 and 24.97 respectively. The general figures confirm the impression that divorces are commoner In the case of childless marriages, the proportion varying from 36.91 to 41.24 per cent. It is alsa notlceablo that in the largest propor tion of divorce cases the marriige took place in a registry office. Pauperism in I-n gland. The recent half-yearly statement on pauperism in England and Wales, pre pared and printed by the local govern ment board, shows that one person In 30 out of the whole population re ceives relief out of the public funds. This is bad enough, yet within the memory of some now living one-seventh of the whole population were pau pers. One-fourth of the total of 817, 000 for the current year are children under 16, and the least creditable part of the report is that only l-29th of these are boarded out in respectable families, where they may grow into normal and useful life.
