The argentine republic is rapidly
becoming the great rival of the
United States in the production of
wheat. In 1802 Argentine exported
omy 0,500,000 bushela of wheat, bnt
in 18I wheat exports amounted to
24,000.000 bushels. The cheap labor
of that country enables tho farmer to
sell at a low fignra and then realize
a small profit. Precisely what effect
tho wheat supply from Argentine is
going to havo upon the future price
of that cereal cannot be foretold, bnt
mai it will be considerable is evi
dent. Our farmers will have to
adopt economical methods, thorough
cultivation, and closo application to
the details of their farmiog opera
tions to compote with them in tho
wheat markets of the world.

more exacting than those wherebv the
college professor leads his charges. The
teacher is not a creator of system to

experimental, aud after observing the
regularity with which the animals follow
the same habits, lie bases his method of
training them on these lines. Whatever
the auimal he wishes to train, the teacher
begins by watching it closely, eudeavor

of the race, but the I'orsoual disposition
ot tho individual iu iiuuution. One
specimen raises itself naturally upon his

HE SAW LINCOLN SHOT.
Captain Silas Owen's Experience in
For 30 years Captain Silas Owen has
carried in a little envelope, securely
hidden in his pocket book, a square
piece of cardboard, on which are these
: FORD'S. :
: Section B. ;
: Scat 173. :
It Is the coupon of the ticket which
Captain Owen used at Ford's Theater on
tho night that Lincoln was murdered
The captain was thea the commanding
officer of the United States ship Prim
rose, and he and his master's mate, Wil
liam R. Flood, hadgono to the theater
especially because It was understood that
that the president would be present, and
Owen had taken seats that would be
directly in the line of vision with the
presidential box. He cherishes the me
mento warmly, and frequently talks to
his friends about that awfnl and impress
ive incident. He is a trustee of Round
Lake, and in one of his recent official
visits here he gave an interesting remin
iscenee of it.
"Flood, " said he, "was the first wan
to reach the president's side, an I was
the second. The firing of the shot
hardly gave us any idea of the awfnl
deed that it indicated. Booth clambered
down the side of the box and crossed the
stage, and even then we could compre
hend nothing of the nature of the catas
tophe, until Mrs. Lincoln leaned over the
edge of the box, wringing her hands, and
with a face of terror and amazement that
will never be erased from my memory,
called aloud, 'They have shot pa.' I re
member the homely phrasing so well.
"That was enough. Flood was out of
his seat as if he had been shot from a
mortar. He jumped over the head of
'.he leader and climbed into the box be
fore the rest or the audience seemed yet
to comprehend it. To shoot the presi
dent seemed, even in all the horrors of
the long war, to be yet something too
"I followed Flood and was second at
the side of tho dying man. Flood found
him still sitting in his chair, but with
his head resting on hii breast, and be
gently lowered him to the floor. There
was no sign of any wound and no flow of
blood and we believed that there was no
disaster until while Flood held his head
in his lap he felt the soft trickling of
matter. It was not blood. He showed
it to me and we knew that the dreadful
deed was complete. It was the pure
white matter ot the brain.
I ste stated that tbey show people

all dabbled with the president's blood If
this is so it is a mistake, for Mrs. Keene
was not at the president's side that night,
to my knowledge. The blood was shed
most likely by Booth's knife, or the
asassin made a stroke at her with it.
And that calls for another correction. It
has been frequently told how I'ooth
strode majestically and tragically across
the stage and with a flourish of his dig
ger cried "sue Semper Tyranms!" Asa
matter of fact he did not stride majesti
cally at all. He pulled one foot after
the other very slowly, lor he had fallen
as he jumped, bis foot being caught in
the folds of the American flag which en-
veloped the lower edge of the stage, and
sprained Ins ankle, and bis stnne was a
most painful process. At the side of the
stage, just between the curtain, which
was down, and the edge of the prosce
nium box, stood Mrs. Keene, who had
been there some time. She was! not in
front receiving the applause of a recall,
as has also been stated, not was Harry
Hawk with her. Booth dragged himself
up to her and she seemed to compre
hend ahead of the rest of us what had
happened, for she put her hands out
towaid him and said, "What have you
done, John?" He.then made a thrust at
her with his dagger and seemed to rip
the sleeve of her dress, and he probably
wounded her in the arm, for it was a sav
age blow. It was then that he uttered
the cry, "Sic Semper Tyrannis" that
incredible parody and mockery of the
noble Roman's utterance.
'The memory of that great eveut,"
Baid the captain, "will remain vividly
with ice forever, as it remains now, over
30 years after it happened. New York
