While the government's report places
the condition of the crop on Septem

the estimate of the total corn yield f
the stato Is 10(,OW,000 bushels, as a
182,000,009 bushels last year. The lo
78,000.00 bushels In tho total Is qTTllo
scriou enough to be noteworthy, but tho
fact that 101,000,000 bushels remains to
be marketed is proof that the crop was
far from being a total loss. In point of
fact, what is left of the ' corn crop Is
much better showing than was experi

corn was caught by frost and proved
"soft" and unmarketable.

Bees Gather Honey
for Church Carpet
CRESTON, Ia Seps, 10.-(Spectal.)
While many may doubt the efficacy of
prayer, It seems, howeve'r, that tho Pres
byterian women of this city havo relied
on this means with surprisingly good re
sults. It seems that the church for some
time has been running down, and that
the male portion of the congregation has
been slow in producing1 the necessary
money for recarpetlng the sacred aisles of
the church building. The "sisters," how
ever, got together and held a prayer
meeting, and thereby hangs the tale. A
largo 'and Industrious swarm of bees
came and took up their abode in the
church steeple unknown to the members.
There they worked no one knows how
long, and gradually accumulated a flno
batch of precious nectar. One day a
neighbor fan noticed a new swarm leav
ing from the steeple and Immediately
started Investigations. The raid dis
closed the fact that a blessing had in
deed descended and over 400 pounds of
honey were removed. The honey was
sold at market price and now tho church
boasts the best carpeting in the land as
well as other Improvements.

proceed to New York In a day or two.
Unofficially it is understood here that

negotiations which John IJnd began,
provided the Washington government de
cided to receive blm and the Huerta
government acceded to the conditions
which will be imposed.

Present System. J
WASHINGTON, Sept. 10.-Thc ndmliH
Istratlou current) bill today started on
Its doWollS wny of tho statute books when
Clous ot the houso banking committed
and one of tho fathers ot tho measur
opened tho currfrcy debato In the house.
In n lonrr speech Mr. Glass expounded
the principles underlying tho bill and nn
piled to various criticisms of tho meas
u r c. Tho democrats hope to conclude th
general debate on tho bill this week ant
begin Its dotallcd consideration Monday.
Mr. Glass replied at length to the crltU
clsm that tho federal reserve board,
placed by the bill In control of tho pro
posed financial system, would with lt
wide power bp subject to political Influx
"There- Is no politics In this matter;
there can bo none. It. Is my earnest con
viction, based on long and serious rei
flection, that no man can conceive, asi
none has jot pointed out, how any para
of this system can bo perverted to po
litical uses' said he. "I happened tn
be present when nn eminent banker sug
gested such a possibility to tho present:
occupant of the cxccullvo chair, and,
heard tills banker vainly challenged to
show how It might bo done. I shall nob
soon forget the emphasis with which tha
president of tho I'nltcd States declared.
that no mnn would over be fountf who
would bo willing to Imperial, his rcputat
lion or tarnish his tamo by so flagrant
a prostitution of his high office."
Unnks Wnnt to Speculate.
Mr. Glass declared that opposition tot
the, bill by bankers was caused by thai
fact that the bill would sever tho rclm
tlons between banks nntl stock gambling.
"Tho whole flghuof tho great banker
Is to drive us from our firm resolve to

try andrihe8tock speculntlvo operational
In the money centers," ho said,
"The avowed purpose of this bill is tot
cure this ovll, They do not want existing
arrangements disturbed; they deslro tn
perpetuate a fictitious, unscientific sys
tem, sanctioned by law, but condemned
by experience and bitterly offensive ta
the American people a system which,
everybody knows encourages and pro-t
motes tho worst description of stocW
gambling. The real opposition to this
bill Is not as to government control, on
which wo shall never yield; It Is not as
to the capital subscription required.
which is precisely that ot the Aldrtch
scheme unanimously Indorsed by tha
American Bankers' association; It Is not
as to the C per cent dividend allowed,
member banks, the exact limit prescribed,
In the Aldrlch bill; It la not as tc com
pulsory membership, which was provided
In another way In the vAldrlch scheme;
It Is not as to the bond refunding prop
osltlon, Infinitely simpler and less ex-t
penBlve than tho Aldrlch device.
"It Is none of these things that vexes!
