A Valuable Late Corn.
Mr. George T. Williams special
agent of the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture located at
Athens Texas sends the following
The United States Department
of Agriculture desires to call atten-
tion to a valuable late corn known
"It was grown by a Mr. Wilson
of Hetty Texas last year and gave
a yield of 50 bushels of good coin
per acre planted as late as July 15.
"As much of our best corn land
was flooded so that it could not be
planted up to the present time we
suggest that some of nir progres-
sive farmers plant eight or ten
acres of this corn and give a fair
trial and report results to us.
"There will be plenty of time to
get the seed and plant by June 15th
to July 1st. We would especially
like for those who have agreed to
co-operate with the department to
give this corn a test trial." Pro-

He Got Some Belafted Information That
It is best to be sure of the ground
before one goes too far. A mining
expert tells in the New York Press
' something that happened to him
when in the self confidmce of his
1 youth he was prospecting near what
is now Leadville. He had been after
a load of supplies and rode into
camp alone at noon one day. It
was no uncommon thing for a stran-
ger to come to a camp and wait for
the owners return so the pros-
pector was not surprised to see a
man sitting at the door of the rough
hut or shelter.
Paying no particular attention to
the guest I cast the lash rope from
the pack and called liim to help re-
move the load. He responded cheer-
fully and that done I told him to
rustle a little wood and we'd Vave
dinner. He quickly brought a load
of dead limbs and f sent him for a
second lot. Then he asked what
further sarvitc he could perform.
Wishing to humor his desire for
work I told him he could fill the
camp kettles at the creek. After
this I graciously gave him permis-
sion to sit down while I got dinner.
Among my various weaknesses at
that time was that of imparting un-
restricted information to apparently
uninstructei strangers. The habit
came from a desire to escape from
the tantalizing distinction of a ten-
derfoot which I then enjoyed.
No sooner were we at the tablo
which was a board wedged betwean
two treai than I bags is. I poured
forth a Niagara of information con-
cerning minoc &nl mining. Hi
prored to cxedteat listener and hie
appreciation encouraged and grati-
Finally my information becoming
exhausted 1 had to rosort to other
things. I happened to turn to the
chril war and sailed along manufac-
turing hatory riht and left and
making a freo gift of it to thfistran-
ger. Pausing a moment for breath
I was startled by my hearer modest-
ly venturing a correction as to a
portion of the mass of detail I had
so generously given him.
I began to reconnoiter. Had he
been in the army? Well yes he
"Were you a private or an offi-
"Well an officer."
"How did you rank?"
"Well I suppose I ranked as a
general at the close of the war."
I realized trouble was ahead and
"What may I call your name?"
"My name is Logan" he replied.
For the first time I scrutinized
his face. There could bo no mis-
takes in the dark swarthy features
of the man the long hair the high
cheek bones. Smiling a sickly smile
I slowly rose stretched my hand
across the table grasped 'his and
"General Logan I can only ex-
press my regret at noi having beem
able to furnish you with this infor-
mation at an earlier date. It might
have changed your course of action
during the war."
The general laughed heartily; but
best of all although he remained in
the camp several days he did not
mention the affair in the presence
Sir William Hamilton who was
appointed astronomer royal for Ire-
land at the age of twenty-two and
who discovered quaternions kept a
headstrong horse and on cne occa-
sion mounted him in Dublin just as
a mathematical problem had sug-
gested itself to him. The horse took
a mean advantage of the rider's abr
straction and ran away. "When I
found it impossible to stop him"
the philosopher said "I gave him
his head and returned to the pob-
lem. He ran. for four mil nd
stood still at my gate just as t'ae
problem was solved."
