DOUBLE CROPS LIKELY SOON
Wiaconiln Seed-Breedlnn Profestor
Tells How Selection Doe It
with Unfailing Success.
Chicago. -A doublliiR of the pres
ent production of "farm staples Is In
sight, nccordlng to Prof. H. C. Durium
of Worland, Wis., who Is a pioneer In
the sclenci- of seeding breeding.
"We already hare practically doub
led the yield of corn by selection and
plant-breeding." said Prof. Uuffum
yesterday, "but wo need not stop with
corn, as wo can deal with all other
crops In a similar way. The reason
that this has not been done earlier la
that plant-breeding has been utilized
heretofore mainly for the production
of curiosities. Men who brought out
anything new were 'wizards.' Few
saw any pramlcal value In what was
being done. Much waf accomplished ,
In an aesthetic way with reference to
Improvements of flowers, but tho
great farm crops were neglected.
"4s Mark Twain said in "Pudd-n-hcad
AVilson': 'Training is everything.
The peach was once a bitter almond,
nnd cauliflower Is nothing but cabbage
with a college education.' Plant
breeding supplies this 'college educa
tion' to the plebeians of the vegetable
world, and therefore by increasing
crop yields, promises mors than any
thing else with referer.re to tho
growth of tho world's permanent

Value of "Stooping."
Always be civil. Try to treat lch
and poor alike. In not tho poor man's

nound? The. working man's wire
with her basket on her arm, says Sir
Thonins I,inton in tho Strand, is en
titled to as much respect n3 the lady
who comes in her carriage. When
Benjamin Franklin wns ambassador
at the French court, speaking to a
young man. he said: "The last time
I saw poor father he received me in
his study. As I was leaving he showed
me a short way out of the nouso
through a narrow passage crossed by
a beam overhead. Suddenly he cried:
'Stoop! Stoop!' I did not understand
what ho meant until I felt my head
bump ngninst the beam. He was a
man who never failed to give good ad
vice. 'You are goln,' he said, 'and
have got to go through the world.
Stoop as you go through It, and you
will miss many hard thumps.'" I
have never failed to be Impressed by
this lesson of humility.
MKshig Satellite Once More Seen hj
Slrlus, the dog star, which is tho
brightest to our eyes of all tho fixed
Htars, has a very remarkable com
panion, never vlsiblo except with
powerful telescopes. It wns first seen
In 1S62, and In 1890 11 disappeared,
the reason of tU disappearance be
ing that It had moved so close to
Slrlus as to bo lost to vlow In tho
overpowering light of that grent star.
During tho time of Its visibility tho
fact had been ascertained that It was
rovolvlng about Slrlus at a rate
which would carry it completely
around In noruo fifty years. Tho
shapo of its orbit, which Is an ellipse
with Sirlus situated In one of tho
foci, being calculated, nstronomors
felt certain that In a few years the
vanished star would reappear as It
moved Into a part of Its orbit more
distant from Slrlus. This expecta
tion has now been fulfilled, for re
cently tho missing star waB seen
again at Flagstaff Observatory in
Although probably half as largo
as Slrlus, It Is but one ten-thousandth
part as luminous as that star.

It Is a popular fallacy that the first

Ir the best of all he will paint in the
course of his life: that the first speech,
the first book, the first statue, the first
composition, will be the best of the
statesman, novelist, sculptor or musi
cian, as the case mny be. First works
have all the imperfections of uncer
tainty, of Inexperience and Ignorance.
And it Is rather by chance than by

Cupid's ways that tho first love turns
out to be tho great one.
At one time tho apostle Paul seems

even though he did know Christ In

Seamen are strict disciplinarians,

is described by a writer In the Lon
Telegraph. Ono day, whllo the ship was in a
