been found In a supposedly useless

lewly discovered rubber plant of Colo
rado, however, grows at an altitude of
horn 5,000 to 12,000 feet, where the
climate holds all the rigors of winter

"Ioaf and grow f;it" is the trite ex
pressiou an old truism supposed to
have the hscklMg o? physiological re
search and medical experience. The
farmer w-ho wishes to fatten stock for
tbe market does not permit it to roam
the fields. He puts the stock in a pen,
where it can get little exercise, and
feeds It fattening material. But it bus
never beeu supposed that loafing made
a person healthy or strong. It favors
an increase of adijiose tissue, but no
one ever contended that n made mus
cular tissue or improved the circulation
or strengthened any of the organs of
tbe body. But now come certain mem
bers of the American Medical Associa
tion with the declaration that hard
work Is deadly, that the "strenuous
life" is making the young men of the
United States as decrepit as their
grandfathers were at the age of TO
years. The introduction of the cinder
path, football and other forms of out
door athletics into college life, it is
claimed, has resulted In the alarming
growth of an Incurable disease that is
sapping the vitality of the young men.
This disease, which the doctors have
named "arteriosclerosis," is a stiffen
ing and deterioration of the arteries,
causing them to age prematurely and
bringing about a serious affection of
the heart It should not require the
admonition of the learned doctors to
Impress young men with the danger
and foolishness of "strenuous" athlet
ics, or with the benefits to be derived
from rational outdoor exercise. The
loafing that permits an excessive ac
cumulation of fat is dangerous. The
work or the athletic exercise that does
not respond to the rational needs of a
particular body Is also dangerous. Ex
perience and common sense teach us
th4 without the testimony of the doc
tors. Loafing does not bring health.
Nor does "strenuous" exercise neces
sarily bring strength.
Friendly Birds of Prey.
Every farmer and gnmekeepei
should have a copy of the biological
survey's report on the stomachs of
birds of prey Besides immense quan-
tites of mice hawks and owls kill
snakes, rats, weasels, skunks, and
squirrels, all of which specie destroy
more or less young game birds and the
eggs of game birds. Therefore it be
comes necessary to know whether the
bird of prey himself or all these other
enemies kill the most game before
Judging of his harmfulness. The kill
ing of hawk or owl is probably almost
always tbe killing of one of your game
preservers, .whether or not be takes
some game in pay. You might as well
abolish policemen because they some
times offend.
Sportsmen wage war against herons,
kingfisher and fish hawks. Now, since
It is well known that the main devour
ers of trout spawn and fry, for in
stance, are not any kind of bird, but
certain species of fish, you are proba
bly helping thin your trout by removing
these birds, since the latter doubtless
prey more on the spawn devourers
than on tbe trout This is plalu, be
caruse trout are swifter and heuce hard
er to catch and live commonly In deep

what the heron and kingfisher get are
no doubt generally the enemies of your

Selecting Seed Corn.
The true selection of a istter hrped

of the best ears by any means, al
though this Is the popular idea of com
improvement As every corn raiser
knows, certain seed will raise corn
that is almost Ideal, so far as the ear
goes, but there are but few ears on a
This being the case. It Is evident
that the true selection of corn Is the
selection of the plants which show the
desired eharactcrlHtics all through their
growth up to the time of harvest, so
that the plants should be closely
wtrtched from the time they break
ground and thus securing the habit of
.Towth as well as the perfection of ear
so desirable.
Many of the plants will make a
ftronger growth than others and ripen
( hi full crop earlier; if such a plant
Is what Is desired, it can only be found
by watching Its growth through the
