vested at such a high general level of pro

two or three second-class crops makes no

Valae on the Farms.
The corn crop Just harvested In the Unlteo
states is placed by the secretary at 2.7o
OOO.ftOO bushels, a gain of 42,000,000 over the
next lowest year, that of 1899. Wheat
yielded 684,0O0.ono bushels, the second larg
est yield In the history of the country.
Oats, with a yield of B30.00n,000 bushels, tell
60,000,000 bushels short of the record pro.
ductlon. The farm values of the average
crops, according to the estimate placed on
them by the secretary of agriculture, Is:

After explaining that the values given
"are farm values, and sre In nowise to be
mistaken for exchange, ' middleman's or
consumer's values," the report goes op.:
While It may he observed that only one
crop corn reached Its highest production
this year, four crops reached their highest
value namely, corn, hay. wheat and rice.
The general level of production was high
and that of prices still higher, so that no
crops for which separate estimates can be
made fall below third place In total value
compared with the crops of preceding
years, except potatoes, barley, tobacco, rye
and buckwheat. The cereals more than
maintained their previous strong position
In production, and their aggregate yield
Is'.n.nno.OOo bushels, with a farm value of
$2,123.(J0u,0f, or $145,000,000 over last year.
Dairy and Poultry Products.
Other Items than grain, potatoes and
forage enter into the estimate. The old
cow Is doing her share, and so Is the hen,
for the report says on this topic:
Both butter and milk have higher price
In 1905 than In 1904, and these, combined
with Increased production, permit an esti
mate of the value of dairy products at
J6tK,000,ooo, or above the estimate
for last year. No crop but corn produces
the Income that the dairy cow does.
mittee on athletics, today pronounced foot j
bull, as played under the present methods,
to be "a brutal and abominable game" and
said that if he had his way it would be
prohibited. Speaking of the rules commit
tee, appointed a number of years ago by
the now defunct University Athletic club,
Mr. Bangs described Its members as 'irre
sponsible. Impervious to public opinion and
culpable to their disregard of the Increasing
danger of the game as they have made it."
He declared that they had done nothing to
better conditions and that he did not think
the revision of the rules could be entrusted
to them now with any confidence.
Of a proposition made some months ago
to refer the question of stopping foot ball
to the athletic associations of the various
universities. .Mr. Bangs said:
"You might us well trust the cooking of
u steak to a cage full of lions."
President Butler suid that he was not I
yet ready to make a statement for publica
tion, but that the views of Mr. Bangs ap
peared to him to be entirely sound.
The university council several years ago
authorised the president to appoint a uni
versity committee on student organizations
to supervise and control all student organ
izations, athletic and otherwise, which In
any way represent the university before
the public. It is in the power of this com
mittee to tuke whatever action on the pres
ent question seems to them wise.
it was said today at Columbia, appar
ently on good authority, that President
Butler has only awaited the end of tho
foot ball season before calling this commit
tee together and urging them peremptorily
to forbid the further participation of. Co
lumbia students lu the game of foot ball
as It is played at present.

CLEVELAND. Nov. ST. With reference
to evils In foot ball, President Charles
Twlng of Western Reserve college, said to
night: Among the evils of foot bll as now
played are danger to life and exposure to

The farmer's lien Is becoming a worthy

and, after supplying the needs of factories,
tanneries, bakeries and other trades, they

Wealth Prodnctlon of Farms.
Just to show where the farmer stands
In the matter of accumulated wealth, the
secretary says:
Dreams of wraith production 'could
hardly equal the preceding flu urea Into
which various Item of the farmer's
industry has been translated, and yet
the story is not done. When other
items, which cannot And place here,
are Included it appear that the wealth
production on farms in 1005 reached
the highest amount ever attained by
the farmer of this or any other coun
try, a stupendous aggregate of results
of brain and muscle nnd machine
amounting in value to .,4 15,000,000.
The deduction from wenlth produced
made in the report of last year on ac
count of products fed to live Ntock
is not continued this year, because t!ie
duplication of the produced wenlth in
the consumption of products by farm
animals is much less than has been
assumed and is undoubtedly more
than offset by the amount of wealth
produced on farms which cannot be
estimated or even ascertained practi
cally by census enumerators.
It might reasonably have been sup
posed in 11)04 that the wealth proT
duced by farmers had readied a value
which would not be equalled perhajw
for some years to follow, and yet that
value is exceeded by the value for this
year by 250,0)O,0OO, Just as the
value for that year exceeded that for
10O:i by $242,000,000.
The grand aggregate of wealth pro
duced on farms in 1005 exceeds that
of 1004 by 4 per cent; it is greater
than that of 1003 by 8 per cent, and
principal offices at Minneapolis an
vantages to the scholarship of some play
ers; too great frequency of games: ina
bility of athletic associations to handle
properly large sums of inony; the public
exhibition of young men who are primarily
students; reports in newspapers giving false
interpretations of college values.
To eliminate these evils President Twlng
says: "Let the sport to be Idealized, the
ideal be not victory but love of the sport
Itself;' wise administrative bodies in charge
of the teams; competent medical supervision
of players; players be required to maintain
reasonable standing In studies; officials in
sufficient number and power on the Held
instantly to check unduly rough playing;
fewer games and fewer still hard games;
permitting every student in college to play
foot ball if agreeable to parents and the
student Is physically fit."
Harvard Defers Action.
CAMBRIDGE. Mass., Nov, 27. President
Kllot of Harvard stated last night that he
would not call a meeting of the university
and college presidents to undertake the re
form or abolition of foot ball. A request
that he call such a meeting was received
by President Eliot in a telegram from
Chancellor MucCracken of New York vuii
verslty, after the death of Harold P. M.ifre
of the Union college foot ball team.
"I have not replied to Chancellor Mac
Cracken's telegram," said President Eliot.
I expect to write him a letter soon. I shall
decline to take the action requested. I can
not see why such action should come from
me. It should come from the Board of
Overseers or tho corporations."
When asked whether he thought such a
move nus contemplated, President Eiiut
suid :
"I know absolutely nothing about It. Mi.
Storey (an overseer of Harvard), according
ttf tho newspaper, is thinking of Introduc
ing a motion to abolish the game. How
ever, he denied to me that he had any
such intention. He denied It to the news
pupcrs too, but they published It, neverthe
less." Favors Tnree Year Role.
PRINCETON, N. J., Nov. S7.-Prof. W. B.
Scott, chairman of Princeton's Athletic
committee, said tonight in regard to
Pennsylvania's proposals on foot ball: .
I can only speak personally as one mem
ber of the committee, but Hie new proposals
will affect Princeton in only one particular
and that is the one-year residence rule.
All the other propositions are now being tn
torced atrlctly. I cannot see that debanlng
freshmen would do any good, unless It wi re
accompanied by a three-year clause to keep
a man from playing longer than that time.
Unless this were done the evils would be
transferred from the beginning of tne
course to graduation when the athlete
would be forced Into a professional sehoul
so aa to use up his four years. With the
time of playing limited to three years 1
would be In favor of the proposed one-year
residence rule.

Coach Fuhrer seems to think will h a hard

that game Fuhrer has four first class men

by 36 per cent, and this after a lapse
of only sit years.
If there is no relapse from this high
position that the'farmer now holds as
a wealth producer, three years hence
be may look back over the preceding
decade, and, if he will add the annual
figures of his wealth production, he
will find that the farming clement, or
about 35 per cent of the population,
has produced an amount of wealth
within these ten years equal to one
half of the entire national wealth pro
duced by toil and composed of the
surplnses and savings of three, cen
turies. Balance of Trade.
During the fiscal year ended June SO, 1908,
the exports of domestic farm products were
valued at $?27.000,oOO, a loss of (b2.000.000 as
compared with 1904 and JSl.OOO.OOO behind
the flve-year average; although it was $332,
000,000 above the average of the five years
from 1895 to lfOD'and $167,000.00 above he
1R90-1S94 average. Here the secretary says:
"Hurlng the last sixteen years the
domestic exports of farm products
have amounted to $12,000,000,000, or
$1,000,000,000 more than enough to
buy all the railroads of the country at
their commercial valuation, and this
with mere surplus for which there
was no demand at home."
' Imports of agricultural products, which
were mostly noncompetitive, for the fiscal
year ended June .10, 1905, were $554,000,000, or
JI25. 000,000 more than the annusj average
for the preceding five years. The net bal
ance In favor of the farmer for the year
is $285,000,000. During the sixteen years
past the farmer has secured a balance of
$3,635,000,000 to himself In his International
bookkeeping, and out of this he has offset
an adverse balance of $543,000,000 in the
foreign trade in products other than agri
cultural, and turned over to the nation
from his account with other nations the
sum of $5,002,000,000.

Not content with his other achievements,
the farmer lends his strong shoulder to tho
support of the manufactures of the coun
try by furnishing raw materials. Computa
tions based upon census information dis
close the fact that farm products, to some
extent obtained from other countries, con
stitute ftrt.4 per cent of the total products,
and 8. ft per cent of the total materials, and
these Industries produce 3ivS per cent of all
manufactured products snd use 42 per cent
of all materlsls employe,! in manufacturing.
At the same time these Industries using
agricultural materlnV employe 37.S. per
cent of all persons engaged In awennfactur
Ing. and the capital of thepo 1U(istrlee Is
42.1 per cent of the capital of all manufac
turing establishments.
Resisted In absolute terms, during the
last census year the farm products eni-
'loyed In manufactures were valued at
2,679.000,0(10; the value of all materials. In
cluding the preceding amount, was $3,0s7.
000,000; and the products of the Industries
using these materials were valued at $4.720,.
OnO.OOO. These industries employed ?,154,O00
persons and had a capital or $4,132,000,000.
Such are the enormous Interests, not en
gaged In agriculture, but In Industries, that
oould not maintain themselves without the
farmer and his extraordinary productive
Influence on Banking;.
The farmer has also become a bahker,
says the secretary, and he proceeds to
demonstrate his position by giving figures
on the growth of national banks In the
strictly agricultural sections of the country.
On the matter of deposits the report says:
In the north central states farmers have
been depositing money In the banks until
the rate of interest on deposits has fallen
so low that they have diverted a large por
tion of their savings to permanent Invest
ment. In spite of the fact that the banks
do not receive and keep all or most of the
farmers' savings, the increase of bank de
posits In agricultural states and larger re
gions is most extraordinary. The following
are some examples of the increase of the
deposits In all banks In the agricultural
states during the year ending June SO, 1906:
In Iowa and South Dakota the increase
was 14.9 per cent; In Nebraska, 13 5; In
Kansas, 9.7; In North Dakota, 25. During
the same time bank deposits In the great
capital state of Massachusetts Increased
9.1 per cent.
If a comparison is made with ISM, within
the latest prolonged financial depression,
the comparisons are still more striking.
During the ten years from that year to
June SO. 1905, the bank deposits of the
United States, all banks Included, Increased
129.2 per cent. In comparison with this is
the increase of the South Atlantic stales.
quota to the above by having placed thousands of homeseekers
Inning. His best runs were S4, 51, 47 and 24,
and his average 15.
The rules governing this contest are 9M
points, 14-lnch balk line, two shots In.
Gardner's highest runs were 29, 24, 24 and
13, with an average of 7 15-20.
The Cudahys were too much for the Black
Kats last night and took tinee straight
games. The first contest was very even
throughout, the Cudahys winning out by
picking up some hard splits on the finish.
The second was a runaway and the third
never in doubt, after the first two frames.
The black boys were Inclined to he rather
despondent over the result, but the team
has some first-class material that can win
games from any of the teams. Tonight the
