The steady concentration of the
tainting and fishing privileges of
America into the possession of elnbs
is illustrated by the reported lease
of George W. Vanderbilt's famous
North Carolina estate, Biltmore. A
club of ten members will thus have a
monopoly of 125.000 acres. It Is true
that In this case the land was already
monopolized by a single owner, but
i his is not true of the holdings of most
of the new clubs which are being or
ganized all over the country. The
obvious fact is that there Is no longer,
as formerly, enough game for every-
body who cares to shoot or flsh, and
the time is near at hand when sport
of this kind will be, as In England,
the prerogative of a privileged few.

Sax-e the last tulereulosis congress
in Germany the Interest of physician
aud bacteriologists has been largely
centered in the rapid development of
theories regarding the prevention and
cure of consumption. The announce
ment by lir. Koch that consumption is
not an inherited disease, that it 1
communicable and p.eveutible. appears
to be generally accepted by the medi
cal fraternity. Beyond this there ap
pears to be abundant ground for dis
agreement. The most revolutionary
theory regarding the origin of the dis
ease is proclaimed by Professor Von
Beliring. a noted German bacteriolo
gist. Ho accep's the announcement of
lr. Koch, that consumption is not an
inherited disease, as a proved scientllic
fact, but he challenges the correctness
of his theories as to the cause and
infectious character of the disease. He
declares that consumption Is not in
fectious in the ordinary sense, ami is
not acquired by inhalation of germs in
the air; that it is not communicated
to adults from cattle through milk;
that it is conveyed during infancy
through mother's milk, and that about
txi per cenL of persons over .'S'l years
old have the germs In their bodies aud
consume the germs dally. It is Pro
fessor vou Iteliring's contention that
the iufant stomach ha not the same
power of iligesting the genus as the.
stomach of an older person. In tht
infantile body the bacilli find a favor
able breeding place, and remain qules
cent until the body stops growing
when they take on new life. He cite
the fact In support of his theory that
in many families a few of the offspring
have the disease, while one or twe
escape and are healthy and strong
lunged. The obvious deduction from
Professor von Hehring's theory is thai

If a correspondent of tlie Sun Is
right, the despised and buffeted spell
ing reformers may weil hold up their
liead hopefully. They may get a re
icruit which will compel people to fol
low their ideas, whether or no. Here
tofore the trouble with even the sanest
and tust moderate suggestions as to
einiplirylng the spelilng of our knotty
tongue has been that no man was con
strained to accept them unless he felt
like It, and that before the reformed
spelling of the slnipllfyers could reach
the eye It was at the mercy of com
positors and proofreader. This corre
spondent says that a inotlou is on foot
to change the keyboard of the typeset
ting machines In such a way that these
machines, which set an increasingly
Isrge proportion of the prlub-d matter
every year, caunot return to the old
style even at the command of the men
who own them.
The plan Is to drop the letters "q"
tnd "x" from the keyboard- of the
machines. Writers would then I?
forced to spell words In which "q" ap
pears with "cw", and those having an
x" wltb "os." This sounds cweer, but
Ibis ecaample should ecsplaln the
tbange. For the two keys thus made
variable the reformers would Invent
two new letters. One of these would
represent the sound of "ah," which It
how Indicated by combtnatl ma of two

fihif le ttr would stand for "th." The
advantage of this would te the taring j

The corn plant grows In sbont awery
state in the Union, and peopie
lnoughout the country think they are
'amiliar with It; but to appreciate
a tmt corn really means one should
nake a tour through some of the
.Vestr-m States where the fields may
je miles rather than acres in extent,
tin where the harvest of a farmer

Hs, ays tlie New York Tribune. It Is
In this part of the country that one
an as easily get lost In a cornfield as
tie would In a forest, so vast are the
Selds. In the "bottoms' of Kansas
tnd Nebraska a man riding through a
patch on horseback will often lie hid
Jeu from view, as the tops of the
plants extend slsve his bead. res-m-bling

It Is no wonder that the people of
many of the prairie States celebrate
:he coming of "king com" as the
"outlierner does the appearance of
"king cotton." for some of these coru-uouwi-ulUis
alone produce enough
orn In a year to feed a nation. The

tiuntles In Kansas where one ran see
iquare miles not acres planted cn
urely with corn, where fields are so
argc that standing at one end the
tlsitor se-s the horizon unbroken by
inylhing except a mam of jbiit-s
rwaylng In the breer.e.
It Is not strange that the corn liar
vest Is made the occasion of fetes or
'arnlvals in some of the Western com
munities. The Idea probably origi
nated from the corn festival of the In
llans, but the red man would never
"cognize the old-time festival In the
transformation which It has under
gone. Weeks before harvest time preje
rations are made. The prominent
citizens of the town contribute to a
fund for decoration, music snd usually
tlie entertainment of townspeople and
gui-st ut a banquet.
The services of some leading orator
ire secured and the governor is invited
io attend with othiT notables. A spe--lal
week Is set apart at a time when
'he fanners have finished gathering
tlie grain and have leisure to attend.
Tlie railroad companies nre Induced
to offer special rates for transportation
iind with others offer prizes for the
'jest diwigns and decorations. A pro
gram Is arranged, consisting of proces
sions, public meetings, concerts mid
)ther attractions which will interest
'.he townspeople and visitor. Gener
illy a committee of leading citizens,
headed by the mayor, take charge,
and large sums of money are expend
ed in arranging the carnival.
Each resident vies with his tielghlsir

what can be done with the grain In
lonor of which the celebration Is held,
fame of the designs are truly wonder
ful. As single stalks can be procured
.vhich are fifteen feet In height, an op
mrt unity is offered to construct pa
jimIiir, IsKtths and other ornamental
luildings with walls and roofs of the
plant The Rtnlks have such streng'h
and lightness that they can lie easily
made into representatives of castles,
forts and historic structures. The
leaves are worked Into an Inconceiva
ble variety of designs. The women
and girls make costumes out of the
dusks, even to hats and bonnets. They
ire woven Into parasols and umbrel
las, while frequently the front of a
building will be bidden by a covering

England's Superior Natural Gas.
The English natural gns has two ad
vantages over the American.- In the

tounds per square Inch, which is
nough to carry the gas to any town
n Kngland. The other advantage is
hat, while American gas, when burnt
n a fish-tail or Argand burner, has
iractically no illuminating power, the
