M'hat to do with the wheat of tlm
country in asked ly each farmer who
goes with his load to ' the warchoUHH.
Not that he fears the markot will grow
worse, liut whether he bhall not soli
upon the first advance. The Hperu
lutors in wheat are filling his ears with
tho distressed state of the market
abroad, the probability of a further de
cline, the immense surplus on tlm other
Hide of the Rocky mountains and iu
Europe, and yet the present price
leaves him so small a margin of profit
Hint J a hesitates to dispose of it. In
order to answer the inquiries sent us
with somo facts upon' which a fair judg
ment might le founded, we called upon
Mr. Montpelier, the manager of the
Granger's hank. As is well known,
the Grangers' hank is tho creature of
some of the most prominent menilirs
of the Grange practical farmers, who
desired to carry the co operativo prin
ciples of the Grange into (he money
circles of the country. It has heen,
since its organization, the balance wheel
of the machinery of grain production
in this State. The paNt year, hy (he
circumstance of general business de
pression, it had an opportunity to fully
develop its power and the purpose of
its origin, for, to steady tlm decline in
wheat, it distributed nearly $3,000,000
among the farmers, preventing the
crowding of the market ly the needy
Wo found the manager in the midst
of his maps of the wheat-growing
world, and about him carefully pre
pared data obtained by daily communi
cation with every commercial center
from San Francisco to India. He very
cordially invited us to examine the
facts in his possession and the conclu
sions presented by the statistical tables
prepared by himself.
We can only summarize the details
he so fully gave, which begins with the
shortage of wheat this year as com
pared with last in America of 140,
000,000 bushels. East of the Rocky
mountains his comparative tables show
that all that can bo had for export is
the reserve of last year, the short crop
of this year being required for home
consumption. This reserve amounts
to 70,000,000 bushels. The annual
consumption of the United Kingdom
of Great Ilritain is 27,000,000 quar
ters; divide by four and the number of
tons is given. The crops of Groat
Britain this year, according to the most
reliable economists, will amount to
9,000,000 quarters, leaving the balunce,
18,000,000 quarters, to be imported.
The short crop of France demands
an importation of 4,000,000 quarters.
Austria and Austria-Hungary have a
surplus of wheat, but the rye crop has
been a partial failure, and the loas of
rye bread will need to be repaired with
wheat, no exhausting tho surplus of
wheat in that district. India is the
next of the great feeders of the non
producing nations, The export of
wheat of India since 1880 has boon
between 700,000 anl 900,000 tons,
making an average of 800,000 tons,
showing no increase since that time,
but on the contrary has been less than
the average of the last two years.
Recent intelligence is that a famine
has been threatened in that part of In
dia where 3,000,000 of people died of
starvation, caused by the drought of
five years ago, and that tho overflow of
the Ganges has inundated the rico and
grain producing districts adjacent to
Calcutta. Since the last great drought
connection has been made by rail with
the southern portion of India, so that
it is possible to savo the population
tlieru with the product of the moru
fortunate sections of the country. It
is not f resumed that England will, at
this time of danger to her Indian pos
serious, permit her subjects to suffer,
and to avoid it will be obliged to drew
upon tho greater parL of the annual
export of that patt of her kingdom.
India has a population of 22.1,000,000,
190,000,000 of whom are under Itrit
ish rule, and all of whom are bread
eaters, With one third .the area it has
five times the population of the United
From California in August and Sep
tember of the last year sixty-eight ves
sels cleared with wheat, while this year
up to this time in September but ten
cargoes have been shipped. Taking
these general ftcts from the mass of
details tabulated by Mr. Montpelier,
the farmer should he ablo to exercise a
pair judgment upon the disposition of
his wheat. We give them in an ir
regular way, because they will be just
an striking in this form as any to the
mind of a farmer, who wou'd never be
patient enough to expend the labor of
examination devoted to them by our
informant, even if he had the ability.
Such general facts would seem to con
vince any mind, given to the most mod
erate calculations, that tlm rt ln.ttt mar
ket, however gradual in its movements,
must tend upward.
ItVould have been a great satisfac
tion to have obtained a prediction as
to the near future of the market, from
one who bears no speculative relations
to the wheat product, but Mr. Mont
pelier would only say, that with this
array of facts, and to-day's report from
Europe of tho increasing firmness of
the market, he should be surprised if
wheat did not advance some dollars
per ton before the 1st of January.
Mm. Granl'i Income.
Notwithstanding the financial diffi
culties that cut short the career, of
General Grant, and which were brought
about by his connection with the firm
of Grant Si Ward, his widow is left in
very comfortable circumstances. Mrs.
Grant will have the income of the
fund of $250,000 raised by the pro
prietor of the New York Times, which
was invested five years afo for the uso
of the General, and which was beyond
his reach in life and is beyond the
reach of his creditors now. The in
come for General Grant's book is un
derstood to be secured as the exclusiye
property of Mrs. Grant, and will be
subject to her own control and use. A
leading Southern Senator has already
drawn up a bill to introduce in the
next session giving Mrs. Grant the
$5000 pension per year granted to the
wives of deceased Presidents. The
profits from the soldier's autobiography
as estimated will be 300,000, and not
less than $250,000. All these sums
certainly . ought to place Mrs. Grant
beyond the reach of the caprice of
fortune. The widow of the "hero of
Apponmtlox" will be in far better cir
cumstances than any of the widows of
our past Presidents, not even excepting
Mrs. Garfield. The widow of Presi
dent Tyler has no income but the
$5000 annuity granted her by Con
gress. Mrs. James K. Polk has her
Nashvillle home, besides a small in
come brought by interest on Tennessee
bonds, which that State in its insol
vency has never defaulted, in addition
to her $5000 per year pension. Mrs.
Gartiold has her beautiful Mentor home
and a tesidence in Cleveland, Ohio, tho
$5000 annuity and the income from
the $300,000 fund contributed soon
after her husband's sad demis?. Stand

The total annual revenue of Hol
land Id, writes a correspondent, about
$50,000,000, and her total annual ex
penditures for the last few years owing
to the extraerdinary cost of building
new dykes and repairing old ones, has
leen .about $53,000,COO. She pays
303,7d0 annually to her king and his
household, and in annual interest of
$13,151,160 on her publio debt. She
has about 16u0 miles of dikes on her
seacoasts and water courses and the
the annual cost of keeping these dikes
in repair is aliout $2,000,000. These
dikes are immense embankment, from
from ten to twenty -five high and as
many feet broad, thrown up on the
seaooants and water-courses to prevent
the inundation of the entire country.
On the water side they are protected
by stone or timber lining, and on the
land side they are covered with
beautiful, green sod, hushes, mostly
willows, largely used in their construe
tion and frequently by trees, and in
many instances there are fine, shady
roadways on the tops of these dike
When you stand on the land side of
some of these dikes, you can hear the
waves of the sea beating against the
other side from five to fifteen feet
above your head. The entire kingdom
of Holland i's also interlaced and inter
sected by thousands of miles of canals.
The brilliant life and Bad death of
William Pitt, England's great Prime
Minister, seem a satire upon personal
a.ubitinn and popular gratitude, He
was Chancellor of the Exchequer when
but 23 years of age, and for 18 years
ruled Great Ilritain. The contrast of
the brilliant beginning of his publio
life with its somber ending is painful
Pitt died at his house, Putney !
Heath, and in a very neglected state,
none of his family or friends being !
with him at the" time. One who was ;
sincerely attafchrd to him, hearing of
his illness, rode from London to see
Arriving at his house, he rang tho
bell at the entrance gate, but no one
came. Dismounting, he found i-his
way to the hall door,' and repeatedly :
rang the 111, which no one answered
He then entered the house, wandered '
from room to room, till at last he dis
covered Pitt'on a bed, dead, entirely
neglected. It is supposed that such j
was his poverty ho had not been able 1
to pay the wages of his servants, and j
that they had absconded, taking with ,
them what they could. ,
Much complaint is heard because
Mr. Adlai E. Stephenson, the First;
Assistant Postmaster General, was a)-
sont from Washington a week on a
visit in Illinois. It is urged that dur
ing the time he was away only 1 00
fourth-class postmasters were removed,
and it he had remained at his desk tho
nuraW would have been increased to
500. Cut Slcphenson is buck now,
and has resumed operations at the old
stand. The fact of the business,
is that the country cannot gel
along very well without Stephen-'
son, and when he goes otf on r .
little trip you bet the Democrats mis:
him. The administration can get along
very well without some of ils officia's
but Stephenson is not one of them
He is dear to tho Democratic heart
and they want him to take no mor
trips not even for a day.
