Prof. L. May, head of the May school
of professional and commercial art
of New York City, has been secured
to succeed Prof. H. A. Mills, who
has retired from the teaching pro

an, M. A. degree from Columbia uni

training as a teacher of art both in
New York City and in the state col
lege for women.
According to the prediction of ed
ucators one of the most outstanding
changes of the colleges in the next
25 year j , will be the increasing em
phasis upon the aesthetic work of
colleges ind universities. ' English,
the material sciences, and the social
sciences and foreign languages have
had their places highly developed.
Nnm ncvrVinlnctist are iolnincr with
educators in urging that the aesthetic
side of the individual should oe de
veloped along with the physical and
the intellectual. , V.
In harmony with this . tendency,
and possibly . assuming a: Pjace of
leadership with regard to it. Cornell
college has taken an advance step
in conection with the ,art work of
that institution this year.

B?EM Nt DUMP
Says Health at 77 Years
Due to Daily Horseback Ride
loves his horse and dogs and because
he fully appreciates the value of
such exercise. He expects to ride as
long as he can creep to the side of
his horse and crawl into the saddle.
As he sat the other day in. the
shade at his beautiful home making
a mental survey of his whole neigh
borhood and his old neighbors, Mr.
Shourds said that -most of or his old
friends, many of them about his age,
"I would have gone along with the
rest if it had not been for my saddle
horses," he mused, gently fumbling
the soft, tissue-like ears of his old
pet dog, Beeswax. "Riding horse
back is the best exercise I know of,
and it's good for persons of all ages.
But if you expect to fully enjoy it
you must love a horse.
His Favorite Mount.
Teaching his horses tricks is one
of Mr. Shourds hobbies, and they
seem to enjoy it. He does not need
a mounting, block to climb on the
back of- Monte, his favorite mount,
for as soon as Mr. Shourds begins
to gather the reins Monte makes
short steps forward with his front
feet, stretching out as far as he can
reach and lowering his back for his
master to mount. He- stretches out
in the same way for the dismount.
Then Monte will pick up his mas
ter's hat, handkerchief or glove as
they are tossed to the ground,
stretching his long, slender neck as
far as he can reach to place them in
the rider's hand. With the attitude
of a clown he will blink his eyes,
wiggle his ears, and shuffle across
the lot in a hurry when he is told
to mount a pedestal. But Monte al
ways expects a lump of sugar at the
conclusion of each act. Smoking a
Missouri corncob pipe and jumping
through a hoop . are some of the
tricks Beeswax, his glass-eyed dog,

myself. I knew nothing about the
work, but I read about children mod

chunk of clay I started out just as
other students at the Art institute,

Corn Crop Well
Advanced Aug. 1
Estimate hy United States Ex
pert Puts Average This,
Year Ahead of For
First estimates of ; probable crop
yields in South Dakota for this sea
son have just been, made by'H. O.
Herbrandson,. field agent in South
Dakota, of the bureau of crop esti
mates, United States Department of
Agriculture. The report of the
field agent in which the estimates
are set forth is in part as follows:
"All counties of South Dakota in
dicate their Corn crop to be greatly
advanced, as. compared with the
usual condition of. August 1. The
state yield is now estimated at 30
bushels per acre or a total produc
tion of 108.780,000 bushels, which
is still the largest corn crop ever
produced in this state, regardless of
the injury which- has been done.
"Winter wheat is found to have
yielded 14 bushels per acre in
South Dakota, or a total production
of 854,000 bushels.
"The intense heat which the state
experienced; hastened the maturity
of spring wheat and no doubt has
redqeed the annual production con
siderable. Following the first few
days of July, climatic conditions im
proved for spring wheat Addition
al precipitation and lower tempera
tures permitted the berry to fill bet
ter than previous conditions prom
ised, resulting in a much higher
quality of grain.
Little Rust Damage.
"There was scarcely any rust this
season to damage the quality. Be
cause of the drouth the growth of
the plant Jibs been dwarfed and
therefore the yields are comparative
ly small. Especially is this true in
the northern half of the James river
valley territory, which is the most
important wheat growing' region in
South Dakota. The north and east
ern counties have a better crop. '
"It is now estimated that South
Dakota's spring wheat crop will
yield about nine and three-fourths
bushels per acre, or a total produc
tion of 25,390,000 bushels. This , is
about the s,ame production as that
of one year 'ago, but the quality is
"The oat crop has suffered from
the same cause as the spring wheat
crop. Oats are more extensively
grown in' the southern portion of
the state. The production, based on
a yield of '24 bushels per acre, .is
placed at 54,864,000 bushels. This is
about . 21,500,000 bushels . less than
the estimated- crop, of one year ago
and closely approximates the 1919
production but is less-than South
Dakota's usual crop of oats. .
Frost Damages Barley.
"Barley has experienced most un
satisfactory conditions for produc
tion this year. The sowing was most
favorable, but shortly after starting
growth, the May frosts damaged the
plants. Following this came the tor
rid heat of June, which matured the
crop prematurely, reducing the pros
pect of yields and shriveling the ker
nel. The result is that there is
practically no barley of good quality
in the entire state. The prospect
now is for a production of 17,833,000
bushels. This is a decrease of ap
proximately 2,000.000 bushels since
the July 1 report and is the smallest
barley production since 1913.
"Potatoes give eveh poorer prom
ise than on July 1. The-prospect
now is for a yield of 52 bushels per
acre. Lack of precipitation . when
needed most, together with intense
heat, were the causes of the damage.
"Flax is giving very poor promise
now, with practically no opportunity
for improvement. Most fields were
planted early and hurt by drouth
"Rye production has been decreas
ing annually of- late years and the
crop this year is approximately the
same as in 1916, being placed at
"Much of the western half of
South Dakota has a poor native crop
of hay. The eastern portion is
somewhat better, especially the
Sioux river valley and the southeast
ern counties. Fortunately, South
Dakota has an unusually large hold
over of hay from last year."

Only 1.9 Per Cent of Farms
In Slate Being Operated
Nebraska has fewer "farmerettes"
than any other state in the union,
only 1.9 per cent of the farmers in
the state being women, according to
a report by the Department of Ag
riculture. In contrast to this, the report says,
a recent census showed that Rhode
Island has 7.2 per cent women farm
ers, placing it ahead of all other
states. Only in five states is the
proportion of women farmers over 6
per cent of the total. Those five
states are Rhode Island, Mississippi,
Connecticut, Alabama ' and Massa
chusetts. This report does not take into
consideration the number of women
who work on farms, but only those
who operate farms through owner
ship, leasehold or management for
another party.. Separate figures by
states are not given, but a total of
261,553 farms are. operated by
women in the United States, or 4.1
