aril !. Wheal Abroad,
The calendar year 1009 will show a
smaller exportation of wheat ft nan any
year In the last decade, and an In
creased home consumption, both In
amount and per capita average, says
a report of the Ilureau of Statistics on
wheat production, exportation and con
sumption of tha Vnlted States.
The continued decline In exports of
breadstuRs lends Interest to the state'
ment. The exportation of wheat for
the nine months ending with Septem
ber amounted to only 27,768,901 bush
els, against 68,178,935 bushels In the
same month of 1008; flour exports were
6,388,283 barrels, against 9,423.347.
This reduction In exports of wheat
seems to be due to Increased consump
tion at home rather than at any de
cline In production. The average an
nual production for the last five years
has exceeded any earlier five-year

rural mall delivery Is to be discontin

by mall patrons, who are supposed to
keep the roads In good condition, In
many parts of the country the roads
aro maintained and kept In fairly good
condition, but thousands of miles of
roadways traversed every day by the
carriers are wretched, and later In the
year will become next to Impassable.
Ware It a matter of great expeaia or
effort to keep country road In good
condition It might be aomtthlng of a

gent ua of the pllt-log drag ha prac
tically aolved the problem of country

An Interesting experiment In fruit
growing has been recently carried out
by the Count da Cholseul and de
scribed Iu Cosmos, When a south wall
Is uied for fruit trees the north sldo
of the wall Is practically wasted as far
as fruit Is concerned. Count de
ChoUeul kaa used a glass wall, and
grown fruit treea'on both sides. The
produce on the north sldo ts little In
ferior to that on the south. A photo
graph shows heavily fruited pear tree
on both sides of the wall. The wall,
C0feet long and 6V4 feet high, had fif
teen pear trees planted on each side.
In 1907 134 pears, weighing 91 pounds,
were gathered on the south side of the
wall, and 109, weighing 77 pounds, on
the north side. The variety grown
was the Doyenne L'lllver.

Lewis Itoesch, the veteran nursery
man, says the best time to plant every
thing except strawberries, black rasp
berries and perhaps peaches. Is the
fall, say from Oct. 15 until tha ground
freexes up. Tha next best tlma Is as
early In ths spring as the ground Is
dry enough to work. In case the
ground to b planted Is exposed to se
vere winds or else Is so damp as to
heave In winter all stock bad better
be planted In spring.
(Irttlnc Hid of Weed.
The best plan for ridding the fields
and pastures of noxious weeds Is to
cut all of them out before they
go to seed. It no seeds are al
lowed to form the crop will at least
be reduced next year. Many of the
weed pests are biennials, blossoming
and seeding the second year; hence
by keeping them from going to seed
the second year they will die and that
will be the last of them. The Canada
thistle belongs to this class.

W, D. I'ltcalrn, In his "Two Year
Among the Savage of Now Guinea,"
relates nn adventure which befell a
friend of his, Dob Bandorson, In north
Queonsland. This friend, who won a
man ot good education and an experi
enced bushman, was on on expedition
In search of new country adapted to
slock raising. He had with him
party of men with tcnta and all neces
sary provision for the Journey.
After traveling about four hundred
miles they found a good looking coun
try, and pitched their camp. Mr, San
derson wandered aorae distance from,
his party, and on returning at night
fall, found the place deserted. Ills
followers hod struck their tenU and
He was four hundred miles from

Day aer day he plodded wearily
along, without any covering at Bight
except the trees, finding here and
there a few borrlei, and often suffer

One morning at sunrise he was de

about fifty vords below him. be saw

DO NOT FKOLOKO CALLS.
.laarertaar ( Meat Tlmaa Makra Oaa
When paying calls on one's frleads,
whether formally or Informally, do not
utterly disregard the hours for meals,
for It Is not good form to linger until
the lunch or the dinner hour when
you have not been Invited for the
meal. If you do, you are likely tc
place your friend In an awkward posi
tion. Either she must ask you tQ re
main because she feels It necessary,
or she has the meal delayed waiting
for you to take your departure.
Do not put yourself in the position
of allowing either of. these alternative
to occur, for no housekeeper likes the
routine Interfered with, andajvex
pected guests are not apt to oerpbpu
lar. for In all well regulated house
holds tha table Is as conventionally
laid for luncheon as for dinner, and to
rearrange It at the last moment ne
cessitates considerable change and
special orders for the kitchen. All of
which many housekeepers dislike, and
therefore donot feel obliged to Invite
callers at the last moment.
It you are really wanted, you will
be asked during the early part of your
call, for the hoatens who wants you
will Insist that you take off your hat
and stay for a long visit. If she does
not ask you In this spontaneous way,
do not embarrass her by remaining
until the moment the meal Is an
nounced. No well-mannered hotteos allows her
mold to announce a meal' while a
caller Is present, and If the visitor Is
thoughtless the lunch or dinner Is
often delayed until It Is almost spoiled,
for cooked foods should be eaten aa
soon as they are done. This waiting
Is a trial to the housekeeper and a
cause ot Irritation to her husband.
If she has one, and the visitor respon
sible for such a state Is never popular
In that family.
When you oak guests to a meal. It
one ot them Is late, do not wait more
than ten minutes. At the expiration
or that time the meal should be served,
This ts only fair to your punctual
guests, who deserve to have a good
dinner, and not one that has been
spoiled by standing. Iu order to get
their guests together at juat the right
time soma hoatesaes resort to tha sub
terfuge of naming a dinner hour halt
an hour i earlier than they mean to
have the meal served. This gets tha
tardy one there on time, but It Is not
quite fair to the punctual ones, who
aro kept waiting. That old adage,
"Punctuality la the courtesy of kings."
should be observed by everyone.
