There is no reason why a man with

Cultivation should not be continued
too late In the season, or the wood

Some one has said that the measure
of the corn crop depends not so much
on the fertility of the land as on the
available amount of moisture during
the growing season. This is a truth
which many of us fail to realize, and

The importance of plenty of shade
cannot be overestimated. Stock may

be well protected even though It costs
considerable labor to haul water from
a distance. Good food is also essen

used without serious result

NATIONAL DEBT UP A NOTCH.
Complete Turnover of Four Millions
from Month of July.
Washington. With an increase of
$3,273,325 in the public debt and a to
tal deficit of $17,371,468.08, the United
States treasury closed the second
month of the fiscal year, keeping on
an even keel, all circumstances con
sidered, with a working balance of
$30,826,057.23 on-hand and the general
fund down to $89,523,207.59.
The increase In public debt, which
is a complete turnover of four millions
in round numbers from the month of
July, is due largely to an excess of na
tional bank deposits over redemp
tions. The general rule of excess of
expenditures over receipts during July
and August is also a contributor.
Total receipts in the month of
August were $34,969,253.54, roughly
five millions more than for the same
month last year. This brings the re
ceipts for the year over the $113,000.
000 mark and five millions better than
those of tho preceding year.
