Once every minute, day and night,
the fire engines dash to a burning

Fire losses in this country are 11
times as great at Europe.
There is no Justification for our
appaling fire waste, but there is no
dearth of reasons. Building construc-
is superior in Europe with many
tion. both in design and materials
rieid protective codes. And most
important reason of all we Amer
icans are apparently the most care
less and wasteful people on earth
when it comes to fire.
A little knowledge, intelligently
used, will prevent most fires. The
dangers of unattended wiring, care
lessly disposed of waste, cigarettes
and matches "flipped" about, are
hardly understood in the average
American home. And because of this
carelessness and ignorance every
American citizen must make his an
nual contribution, directly or indi
rectly, to the fire-waste bill.
DEVELOPMENT IN AVIATION
Chicago Air mail and passenger
planes are now flying 84,656 miles

five lines flying passengers on 178
regular schedules; nineteen of them

with twenty-two foreign countries.
The longest is to Buenos Aires, 5,784

in Production of Corn All
Crops Are Good.
Washington Yields of corn, po
tatoes, sweet potatoes, rice, beans,
peanuts and sugar beets all ran sub
stantially above earlier expectations
in the department of agriculture re
port Monday of conditions as of Nov.
1, chiefly because October weather
was more favorable than usual for
Combining all crops, the depart
ment said, prospects averaged about
1 1-2 per cent better than they were
a month ago but chiefly on account
of dry weather during the summer,
crop yields averaged 5.8 per cent be
low those secured last year and 2.6
per cent below the average yields of
the previous ten years.
The preliminary estimate of corn
production was 2,621,000,000 bush
els or 3.7 per cent over the Oct. 1
forecast. Practically all of the im
portant corn producing states show
ed an increase over October due in
most instances to more favorable
than average weather conditions for
maturing the 'crop. The 1929 corn
crop was, however, the department
said, a relatively short one, being
7;7 per cent below- the 1928 crop.
The buckwheat crop, estimated at
11,896.000 bushels, is the smallest
since 1916. Last year's crop was
13,148.000 bushels. Low production
this year was due, the department
said, to drouth and frost in New
York and Pennsylvania, the leading
The flaxseed crop also was classed
by the department ' as a short one.
An estimated 16,060,000 bushels will
be the smallest crop since 1922.
The potato crop, estimated at 353,
977,000 bushels is about 9,000,000
bushels more than the estimate of a
month ago but about 23.8 per cent
less than the 1928 crop.
The tobacco crop was estimated at
1,4S0,965,000 pounds compared with
1,378,139,000 pounds in 1928, or an
increase ot approximately iu,uur
000 pounds. State Journal.

her money, stated to be

her mother, may be known as the"

Money Left by John Neal.
Miss Shotwell's money came from
an inheritance nine years ago. John
Neal, a stockholder in the R. J.
Reynolds Tobacco company and a
district manager for the company,
left her 75 thousand dollars worth
of Reynolds stock when he died
about 10 years ago. He was a friend
of Margaret's father. Franklin Shot-

play when he was entertained at
the Shotwell home.

me," Mrs. Shotwell said. "Every

thought she couldn't lose.

how Margaret might react to the
catastrophe. "She was terribly low-
