of ra.mpu.lgu Hull was to lie pursued
and the success of the undertaking Is
eloquent evidence of his ability to

claim or covet praise for the part he
played in successfully floating the
MeKlnney district's share of this huge
war loan for our government, but our
people see in him not only the quali-
ties of successful leadership, but In-
domitable energy and an intense de-
sire to serve his native city and county
In whatever place may be necessary to

war enterprise of our government. J.
Perry Burros Is Justly known and

Mrs. Margaret Ferguson Mathews

not expected to go so low as tu tho

Storms are expected to lie most sevore
near Oct, 24. I expect Winter grain
to bo at its best at end or November.
Iirouth conditions in largo sections
will continue at. least thirty days.
November temperatures and preci-
pitation will be about normal; highest
temperatures near 10 and 27, lowest
near 7 and 21; most severe slorius and
most precipitation during week cen-

of Newfoundland near Nov. li. Storm
wave will follow about one day be-
hind warm wave, cool wave about one

This period will average colder than

intensities a little greater than usual.

Mnrly in the year I predicted an end
of the World War before tho 1918
crops are gathered. Mv reasoning wns
bused on cause and effect as I saw
thoin. Benders will soon determine
whether 1 reasoned well.
A general reconstruction will fol-
low the great war. May we hope that
economic clauses will not be arrayed
against ouch other's Interest as was
the case following the civil war. There
Is enough prosperity in this country to
go around and I hope to see each n-
tcrest get Its own. No real statesman
will sanction another long war be-
tween economic Interests, but such
dangers are to be dealt with following
great wars. 1 hope that the. policies
will not again be favorable to ex
ploitatton anil that agriculture xvll
reap Its own.
♦ t. My hypothesis Is that agricul
turo would be greatly benefitted if of-
ficial science would recognise tliut no
plant food can puss through the skins
of vegetable roots, that the principal
purpose of rain. In the growth of veg
station, is to wet tlie soil In order that
the electric forces can pasa Into the
earth through the vegetable roots un-
der the same conditions that they pass
Into the Barth from the lightning roil.
The latter will not operate if the soil
la dry where the rod enters, because
dry soil does not conduct electricity.
For this reason the soil should be
broken deeply in dry senson In order
that tho roots of vegetation can go
down to wet soil. Grape vines have
been known to send their roots two
miles in order to get dnmp earth.
These facts should be used to benefit
airrlculture, but official science block-
ades the path of progress in this, as II
does In reference to planetary meteor-
ology. Hut official science, like mili-
tary government, seldom makes pro-
Worvlcq, although this bus not been
confirmed at this hour.
