treasury of ?8, 000, 000. She spends
twice as much for education and

White Mills did well to organize
that protection fire company. It
was and Is badly needed. We are
glad to be able to chronicle the fact
that CO White Mills business men,
many of them prominent in the life
of the village, joined It without de
lay and that for Its officers there
were chosen some of the most solid
citizens in that corner of Wayne
county. The next time a house
right In the heart of the village com
mences to smoke at 4.15 In the
morning there will be a trained and
systematic effort made to reduce the
flames, with the probable result that
tho property will not be converted
into a heap of ashes. Success to the
White Mills fire company, nnd con
gratulations to the men that have
started this very necessary organiza
tion on Its way! They are desirable
citizens in the most genuine signif
icance of a term which has been
somewhat overworked and abused
during recent months.

Americans certainly learned some

Its sessions at Brussels, and whose
deliberations ought to be spread
broadcast throughout the United
States. Hero in Monroe, where great

that the great lesson of the congress
for America Is the showing of the
absolute necessity for tho Introduc

building In the United States. Josoph

representatives of the Automobile
Touring club of America, says that
chaos is bound to prevail so long as
the idea that local engineers should
have full control of road building,

CORN CROP CONDITION POOR.
Hut Givnter Acreage Means 80,
(1(10,0(10 Increase in Yield.
The average condition of the corn
crop Aug. 1, as estimated by the
crop reporting board of the depart
ment of agriculture, made public
with the general monthly crop re
port sent out of Washington, was
79.31 as compared with 85. 4 last
month, 84. 4 a year ago and 82.1,
the average on August 1 for tho last
The average condition of spring
wheat on Aug. 1 was C1.0, as com
pared with 61.6 last month, 91.6
last year and 81.9, the ten-year av
erage of that date. The average
condition of the oat crop on Aug. 1
was 81.5, as compared with 82.2
last month, 85.5 a year ago, 76.8 In
1908 and S2.C the ten-year average
on that date.
In spite of the lower condition of
the corn crop, the Increased acreage
devoted to that cereal probably will
increase the crop of the present
year about 80,000,000 bushels over
the crop of last year, according to
the view of expert statisticians In
State Grange For Systematic Crop
At a meeting of the executive and
legislative committees of the state
grange in Harrisburg Tuesday plans
were discussed for a systematic gath
ering of crop reports and statistics
from all parts of Pennsylvania. It
is proposed to launch such a project
The executive committee adopted
resolutions urging the dairy and food
commissioner to revoke the licenses
of dealers convicted of illegal sales

he has no authority to revoke li
censes. Health Hints for Late Summer.
Although diseases incident to ex
cessive solar heat may soon be ex
pected to decrease, a word of caution
Is needed to guard against those
which are so frequent and severe In
late summer. It is notable that the
number of prostrations in cities
which are so frequent last month
have been comparatively few since
the season became less torrid. But
the danger of being overcome by the
heat during prlods of great humid
ity continues throughout August, es
pecially In our eastern seaboard dis
tricts. As tho summer days shorten and
the fall of temperature Is frequently
rapid at night, on aggravation of
acute intestinnl diseases (which aro
rife in all the warm months) is of
common occurrence, and such disor
ders become very serious when hot
spells are suddenly broken by chilling
winds. Malnrla, too, is doubtless
now on tho increase in all low ly
ing, damp nnd mosquito Infested
districts. But in the last half of
August and during September it is
exceedingly important to guard
against typhoid fever, which has
been recently reported as unusually
prevalent, possibly as a result of the
dry season, in which tho water sup
ply Is apt to become Impure. West

BOY BUILT HIS OWN AUTO.
It Ha Made 30 Mile an Hour Can
Carry Three Passengers.
Brlco Cowen, a Los Angeles boy; 16
years of age, has Just completed tba
construction of a real automobile, He
calls It the Callfornlu Mid got.
It la built upon principles similar
to those of the factory made cars and
is capable, demonstrated by actual
tests, of skimming over tho road at
twonty-flvo to thirty miles nn hour.
It has also climbed hills of 30 per
cent, grade, according to tho Techni
cal World, and has carried threo pas
sengers over ordinary roads.
Tho car Is six feet In length and
weighs about 300 pounds. It la pro
vided with a 3 horse-power engine, has
a friction transmission and a double
chain drive. It has a throe foot tread,
with nine speeds forward and throo on
The machine is air cooled, the bat'
tery control Is through an oloctrlo
light switch and the differential oper
ates successfully. There are exter
nal brakes on the rear whoels. and
tho machine Is otherwise fully equip
Aside from the engine, the ma
chine was built entirely by too boy
and even the engine had to bo re
built to conform with none of tho pe
culiarities of tho automobile's make
up. His other purchases consisted
only of rods, wire, nails, pine boards,
a few casings and such material, ovon
tho wheels representing his workman
ship. The latter are equipped with
Wild Flowers of the Tropica.
Between Tonala nnd the Guatemala
border exists one of the greatest flor
al bowers in the republic. This Is
tho time of year when all of the morn
ing glories and many other wild flow
ers of the tropics are beginning to
bloom, and railroad men who ore fa
miliar with all the roads of the re
public say that the grandest sight of
nil Is to be seen hero. Tho maoslvu
trees In the forest which line for miles
the railroad are covered to the tops
with vines and blossoms, and the tclo
gTaph poles and wires present a simi
larly beautiful sight
Along the line nre hundreds of
cornfiolds, and it seems that each
stalk of corn forms a pole upon which
Is growing a morning glory vine. This
does not In the least hinder the crop,
for the corn of tho particular season
has been topped ready for harvest
Near Mepastepec, below here, there
Is a lane some six kilometers in length
where the tops of the trees on either
side of the track almost meet, forming
a most strikingly beautiful floral arch.
These trees are all covered with vines
with the millions of blossoms, and the
Bight Is one rarely, If ever, seen In
other parts of Mexico.

much more dry weather. In gener
al it will be about half a crop, but
differently distributed from last year;
more apples on tho Pacific coast and
rather more In the New England and

Attractions at the Lake will be in full
REFRESHMENTS on GROUNDS
Middle states, but not so many In tho
central west and Canada.
As for prices, thnt will depend
somewhat on general business con
ditions, ns well as on the shortage
of tho crop. Growers have not for
gotten how in 1907 tho prospect of
high prices was spoiled by tho panic
and business depression.
Just now tho outlook seems nono
to6' good In that direction, and for
any reason, so far as It goes, grow
ers should not try to force prices
too high before accepting a fair of
fer. Also, remembering the numer
ous failures of that year, it will be
well to use a little extra caro in se
lecting a reliable dealer when making
a salo contract.
Chicago milk producers have been
suffering from dry weather, in com
mon with most dairy sections of the
country. Thoy are hoping the drouth
will prove a blessing in disguise by
bringing about a shortage and ad
vance in tho retail price of milk.
They believe they are well organized
enough to secure a part of tho bene
fit In case the dealers put up the
price to consumers. Many of tho
small dealers have been selling milk
at seven cents. A uniform eight
cent price Is wanted in order to es
tablish a standard which would en
able tho producers to name a larger
price for coming bidders of price
settlement. Chicago producers re
ceived $1.10 for a 32-quart can in
July. It is expected the August
price will bo $1.15, and tho Septem
ber and October price $1.25.
