Fielding at Lisbon.
Lisbon contains the grave of Henry
Fielding. It was on Oct. 4, 1754, that
Fielding died In the Portuguese cap
ital, and It was In 1830 that his tomb
wns erected In tho English cemetery.
And Fielding didn't like Lisbon. "As
the bonnes, convents, churches, etc.,
nre Inrge," be wrote, "and nil built
with white stone, they look beautiful
at n distance, but ns you approach
nearer nnd find them to want every
kind of ornament all Idea of beauty
vanishes nt once." At that time a
voyage to Lisbon was nn undertaking
not lightly to be contemplated. It
took Fielding exnetly fifty days of
foul weather. St. Jnmea' Gazette.

Falling Back Into Mountains, Where

El Paso, Tex., Dec. 8. News from
the insurrection infected region of Chi

are falling back Into the mountains as
the troops advance, In the hope of
drawing the troops Into the rough
country before fighting. Machine guns
have been sent from the City ol Mex
ico to Chihuahua for the regular army,
and these are to be sent out against
the rebels, who have only rifles and in
some instances are short on ammuni

Washington, Dec. 8. The sccretnry
of agriculture, J nines Wilson, has Is
sued his nnnual report. Ho reviews
conditions throughout the country In
n comprehensive manner.
He says In part:
"Nothing short of omniscience can
grasp the vnlue of the farm products
of this year. At no time In the world's
history has a country produced farm
products within one year with a value j
reaching $S,!)-'0,000,000, which is the
value of the agricultural products of
this country for 1910. The value of
farm products from 1899 to the pres
ent year has been progressive without
interruption. If the value of the prod
ucts of ISO!) is placed at 100 the value
for this year is ISO. or almost double
the vnlue for the census year eleven
years ngo. During this period of un
exampled ngrlculturnl production, n
period of twelve years, during which
the farmers of this country have stead
ily advanced in prosperity and wealth
and in economic independence, in in
telligence nnd a knowledge of agricul
ture, tle total value of farm products
"The corn crop of 3,121,381,000 bush
els exceeds that of the record yptr
190G nnd is greater thnn the average
crop of the preceding five years by 1 1
per cent. While the vnlue of this corn
crop is below that of 1009 nnd also of
1008, its amount belongs to stories of
magic. It can hardly be reckoned ns
less than $1,500,000,000, a sum suffi
cient to cancel the interest bearing
debt of the United States, buy all of
tho gold and silver mined in all of the
countries of the earth in 1909 and still
leave to the farmers a little pocket
"The growing Importance of the
south in corn production Is becoming
conspicuous. In 1889 it produced
hardly more thnn one-fifth of the na
tlonnl crop; now It produces onc-thlrd.
The cotton crop of this year may be
worth In lint nnd seed nround $900.
000,000 at the farm, or more than the
corn crop was worth In any year
prior to 1901. This value Is 13 per
cent above the five year nvernge. The
value of the hay crop Is nbout $720,
000.000, an amount which has been ex
ceeded but once, and that In 1907. It
Is 13 per cent above the nvernge of
the preceding five years. Fortunately
the wheat crop is divided into two
sowings, autumn nnd spring, so that
the two crops nre subject to different
climatic accidents, us wns the ense
this year. The production of spring
and winter wheat is 091,707,000 bush
els, or substantially the average of
the preceding five years, whereas the
value Is nbout $025,000,000, or 7.0 per
cent above tho five yenr avernge.
"Production per acre Is beginning to
overtake Increase of people. The evi
dence is very plain that the yields per
aero of our crops nre now Increasing,
and If the facts were nssembled In de
tnil for the stntes It would be found
that the percentage of Increase in yield
of many of them Is greater than the
percentage of normal Increase of pop
ulationthat Is, the Increase of births
over deaths In the old native element."
After presenting many details with
regard to the Increase of prices on
farm products between farmer nnd
consumer, the secretary of ngrlculture
declares that "the conclusion Is
Inevitable that the consumer has no
well grounded complaint against the
farmer for the prices that ho pays.
The farmer supplies the cnpltal for
production and tnkes the risk of his
losses; his crops nre nt the mercy of
drought nnd flood nnd heat and frost,
to say nothing of noxious Insects and
blighting diseases. He supplies bard,
exacting, unremitting labor."
The report nlso says:
"Twenty-eight new associations for
j the co-operntivo testing of cows be
longing to members wero formed dur
ing the year; flfty-flvo are now in
operation. Such tests, which ennble
the owners to disenrd unprofitable
cows, raised the nvernge annunl profit
per cow in one association from $21.43
to 42.82 In four years."

penditures by the Westchester Racing
