Stock of Corn Is 100,000,000 Bushels Less
' Than I-ast Year.
Chicaoo, Feb. 28. The March report
of the Orange Judd Fanner, which ap
pears in the issue of the current week,
makes the total stocks of grain now in
farmers hands: Corn, 503,239,000; bush
els; wheat, 104,578,000; oa4, 254,174,000.
The stock of corn is 100,000,000 bush
els less than last year, but the crop from
which it remains was 275,000,000 smal
ler, showing that economy in feeding
and the partial substitution of other
grains is bridging over the deficiency in
tho crop. The distribution of the re
maining farm stock is abnormal, more
than 30 per cent of the total being in
three states, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois.
These states hold 40,030,000 more corn
than a year ago, but Iowa, Kansas and
Nebraska hold less than 30 per cent of
last year's stocks at this date. The stocks
of wheat remaining in first hands are
apparently 10,000,000 to 15,000,000 bush
els smaller than the actual stocks of last
March. a determined by the final dis
tribution. It is possible that this
difference is almost offset by the
increase in visible stocks and in country
elevators, that it is almost safe to as
sume that the aggregate supplies of
wheat in the country are little changed
from a year ago. The great bull: cf the
wheat remaining is in the winter wheat
states, where a very large crop w:is liar
vested, but in Minnesota and the Da
kota nearly 20,000,00!) bushels are yet
on the farm. A careful investigation as
to the amount fed farm animals shows
that the earlier expressions were exag
gerated. Local returns from every coun
ty indicate that the amount thus dis
posed of up to March 1 will not exceed
37.000.000 bushels. Corn was relatively
dearer than wheat only during a short
time in the early fall. At the time feed
ing of wheat was general, but when
valuer returned to their normal range,
feeding largely ceased. In Iowa, Kan
sas and Nebraska it was maintained,
and still continue. In the main winter
wheat states then' was a large corn crop,
while- in thi spring wheat district but
comparatively little feeding is ever done.

Complaint Against rrowtit I.aw Cuutld-c-.rcl
by tlir National Council.
Vashintion, Feb. 2S. Complaints
against tho present system of divorce
laws was the burden of today's session
of the National Council of Women.
The entire day session was devoted to
this theme, and a number of interesting
addresses wero delivered before a crowded
hall. The discussion was led by the of
ficial report of the common divorce re
form, read by Chairman Bottello Die
trick of Massachusetts. It embodied re
spouses received from a number of state
governors who were asked to call tho at
tention of tho legislatures to the status
of the divorce laws and to appoint a
committee tocousistof an equal ntimber
of men and women to consider tho mat
ter. The question, the report said, was
one vitally concerning the happiness
and welfare of a great many people, of
whom half are of tho female sex, and
added: "Women should thoughtfully
consider the significance of the fact
that 31 per cent of tho masculine
servants of the people made no response
to this just- request of representative
women. Only two, Crovernor Green
halge of Massachusetts and Governor
Brown of Rhode Island, promised to do
all in their power to carry out the re
quest. The g jvernor of South Carolina
wrote that that state had no divorce
laws and its people wero batter satisfied
than their neighbors whose states have
divorce laws. Tho report said that tho
fact that 23 states have appointed bodies
of men to tinker with divorce laws with
out appointing any women ought to
show women in what estimation tho
men of the United States held their
opinions. Tho officials serving the in
terests of tho United States cherish
frank contempt for woman's opinions
and wishes, was the conclusion expressed
in the report.

Los Axoki.ks, Fob. 2S. It is said

HOUSE WILL NOT YIELD,
Hitt's Motion to Concur la the Hawaiian
Cable Amendment to tho Diplomatic
BUI Snowed Under Honse and th
Sundry Civil Dill.
Washington, Feb. 28. Lucien Ba
ker, the new senator-elect from Kansas,
was on the floor of the senate for the
first time ad was introduced to his as
sociates by Mr. Martin, whom he suc
ceeds. Mr. Gallinger briefly addressed
the senate at the opening of the session
in favor of a plan presented by the
Daughters of the Revolution that a copy
of the Declaration of Independence bs
conspicuously displayed in every post
office. The deficiency appropriation bill
was reported by Mr. Cockrell, leaving
only one bill the naval remaining be
fore the appropriation committee.
Consideration of the sundry civil bill
was then resumed. Mr. Pettigrew of
fered an amendment appropriating
$300,000 for seed for the drouth sufferers
of the northwest.
After a short debate the amoudment
was agreed to 33 to 17.
Mr. Stewart moved to reconsider tbe
amendment already adopted for the par
ticipation by the United States in the
national monetary conference. He said
France was the only European country
in a position to take part in such a con
ference with any prospect of fairness to
silver. He, therefore, would propose an
amendment to the proposition, instruct
ing the United States delegates not to
agree to any ratio below 10 to 1.
Mr. Wolcott (Colo.) said he greatly re
gretted this division of opinion among
senators from tho silver states, who had
so long stood together. Tho senator
from Nevada (Stewart) declared this
was a scheme of the goldbugs. Was ho
forgetting the gallant fight of the friends
of silver the world over which has just
culminated in success in the British par
liament and tho German reichstag in
favor of an international conference.
France, too, was taking the initiative.
Success was almost at hand. It was tho
work of the friends of silver throughout
the world. Were the friends of silver
to pause at such a moment of success?
As Mr. Wolcott closed his vigorous
speech there was a burst of applause
from tho galleries, which the vice presi
dent checked by rapping the gavel and
giving a sharp admonition.
Mr. Stewart again took the floor, de
nouncing the proposed conference as a
"trade with our oppressors." What
ever others might do, he would never
consent to such a scheme.
The Stewart amendment to reconsider
was defeated yeas, 9; nays, 52.
In the House.
Washington', Feb. 28. There was a
large attendance on the floor when the
house met today. The speaker laid be
fore the house the president's veto of the
bill to pension Catherine Ott, and it was
referred to the committee on pensions.
The 54 bills passed by tho senate Tues
day night were laid before the house
and disposed of. Tho senate amend
ment to the bill to prohibit the wear
ing of the sign of the red cross with
out permission from the Red Cross so
ciety was agreed to.
A motion introduced by Mr. Hitt to
concur in the Hawaiian cable amend
ment to the diplomatic bill was lost.
llou,e nod Sundry Civil Itlll.
Washington, Feb. 28. Much dissatis
faction is expressed by members of the ap
propriation committee of the house over
the amendments which are being added
to the sundry civil bill by the senate. In
particular this is manifested against the
sugar bounty provisions, on which the
houe has already voted, and always
signified its opposition to the bounty.
That it will do so again is not doubted
by the Democrats, and there may bo a
serious difference between the two
houses over the question. Another
matter that troubles the house is tho
number of public buildings for which
appropriations have- been added to tho
suudrv civil bill.

HOW AN AX IS MADE.
the Numerous Processes It Undergoes la
tlio Course of Manufacture.
On entering the main workshop the
first step in the operation which is seen
is the formation of the ax head without
the blade. The glowing flat iron bars
are withdrawn from the furnace and are
taken to a powerful and somewhat com
plicated machine, which performs upon
them four distinct operations, shaping
the metal to form the upper and lower
part of tho ax, then the eye, and finally
doubling the piece over so that the whole
can be welded together. Next tho iron
is put in a powerful natural gas furnace
and heated to a white heat. Taken out,
it goes under a tilt hammer and is weld
ed in a second. This done, one blow
from the "drop," and the poll of the ax
is completed and firmly welded. Two
crews of men are doing this class of
work, and each crew can make 1,500 axes
When tho ax leaves the drop, there is
some superfluous metal still adhering tc
the edges and forming what is technic
ally known as a 'fin." To get rid of
the fin the ax is again heated in a fur
nace and then taken in hand by a saw
yer, who trims tho ends and edges. The
operator has a glass in front of him to
protect his eyes from tho sparks which
fly off by the hundreds as the hot metal
is pressed against the rapidly revolving
saw. Tlio iron part of the ax is now
complete. Tho Bteel for the blade, after
being heated, is cut by machinery and
shaped. It is then ready for the welding
department. A groove is cut into the
edge of the iron, the steel of tho blade
inserted, and the wholo firmly welded
by machine hammers,
Next comes the operation of temper
ing. The steel portion of the ax is heat
ed by being inserted in pots of molten
lead, the blade only being immersed. It
is then cooled by dipping in water and
goes to the hands of the inspector. An ax
is subject to rigid tests before it is pro
nounced perfect. The steel must be of
the required temper, tho weight of all
axes of the sauio size must bo uniform,
all must be ground alike and in various
other ways conform to an established
standard. The inspector who tests the
quality of the steel does so by hammering
the blade and striking tho edge to ascer
tain whether it be too brittle or not. An
ax that breaks during the tests is thrown
aside to be made over.
Before the material of the ax is in the
proper shape it has been heated five
times, including tho tempering process,
and the ax, when completed, has passed
through the hands of about -10 workmen,
each of whom has done something
toward perfecting it. After passing in
spection, the axes go to the grinding de
partment, and from that to the polish
ers, who finish them upon emery wheels.
The Way to Get Old.
To the banale and eternal question,
"How are you'r" the wise old man allows
himself but one answer, "I am very
well." He knows perfectly well that his
innocent deception, if deception it be,
deceives no one. Perhaps it is well that
he does not realize, for of self conscious
ness we have enough and to spare, that
the remembrance of his fortitude, pigeon
holed and forgotten perhaps for long
years in the mind of the listener, may
come forth one day to hearten that same
listener along the cruel way when it shall
be his turn to tread it.
For so are accounts carried forward
and not always to the wrong side of the
page, and if it is true thdtthe sins of the
parents are visited on the children it is
equally true that the luster of their vir
tues shines on long after the darkness
has covered them. Is he of those who
desire pity for their falling power? The
surest way of getting it is to keep si
lence. Almost as important and almost as
much neglected is the care for personal
appearance. After 60 vanity of the per
son should be carefully cultivated. After
60 coxcombry in a man and coquet- in
a woman become cardinal points. Can
it be said that the old as a rule so con
sider them? Contemporary Review,
The Acacfemy calls attention to
what is believed to be a personal
relic of Martin Luther. In the
possession of the late Lord Zouclie
there was an old book, and within
its leaves he found a folded paper.
The paper had a large spot on it
and was somewhat eaten by worms.
Lord Zouche catalogued the paper
as having been printed some time
in 1530. Examined recently it was
discovered tliat the folded paper
was what might be called today a
poster, and there is fair evidence
that it has been used by Luther for
a special purpose. It was the re
former's habit to -travel over the
country challenging disputants.
The paper is'printed in Gothic type
and consists' of two leaves which
have been pasted together so as to
form one strip. The translation
from the German reads: "Dr. Mar
tin Luther, preacher of the holy
Church of Wittenberg, will main
tain the following theses against
the whole schooIof Satan and all
gates of hell (wider de ganze
Satansschule und alle Piorten der
Holle)." It must have been Luth
er's habit to affix this challenge,
by means of a wire, to a church
door. It might have been that the
poster, having served once or more,
was preserved by Luther for some
future occasion. The grease spot
is pe'cttliar. The paper may have
been the wrapper of a sausage or a
bit of cheese, and served to hold
Luther's luncheon. It is possible
that the reformer stored away the
poster in an odd volume and then
forgot all abouf it.
