In two hours probably one million
bushels of wheat were saved to this
county alone. The reports from every

considerable acreage that was past

The farmers are in the best of
spirits, business men rejoice at the
bright prospects and a ijeneral revi
val of depressed hopes is felt in the
cordial atmosphere that surrounds

soaking shower came.
Ilanges were suffering greatly by
the continued dry weather. Gardens
and orchards were endangered in
many places and the roads were an

"While tho local money market was
not affected to any appreciable de

to all that it soon would be, if some

Historically, the nigged district has
been a plague to Europe. Its bandits,
brigands, assassins, scandals, mad
ness and unspeakable brutalities are
known and deplored In all Christen
dom. Since the days of the Scythians and
the barbaric tribes that swept down
out of the dark northern fastnesses
upon the unprotected frontiers of
Rome, that territory has been a hot
bed of anarchy nnd revolution.
And it will remain such until the
civilizing influence of democratic
government succeeds the tottering
despotism that surrounds it.

find that the callings resemble their
names in the calls tbey are making
upon the educated ranks for trained
young men and women. Three presi

in the past half-year complained that
the Inroads of the industries upon
their ranks of students and instruct
ors had become serious and that they
could not furnish one-half as many
desirable workers as were needed in
the applied arts alone. Four of the
scientific schools say that this year's
graduates will step at once into lu
crative employment, and more could
do so if they were at hand. In the
tremendous developments of the past
decade nothing has been more Big-,

for educated workmen. This wonder

scramble for quantity and is now rac

science and skill ana originality are
of the utmost value.
One nanny result of the new condi

order. The professional men no long

than the man who simply belongs to
a profession. Neither law nor theol

department of education, effort or In

but it has remained for the truly

is folly, of course, to think that the
big places In any of the professions
are all filled and that greater prizes
are not to be won, but the Important
fact is that the professions do not
