No Profit on the Corn
Occasionally somebody visits my
place in the country who entirely
misunderstands its purpose.
"That's a beautiful lake," he says.
"You should stock It with flsh and
To which I answer that I don't
want to make money.
He is sure he has not heard me
correctly, and so he continues.
"Some of your land is pretty well
run down, but if you would put on
plenty of fertilizer for a couple of
years it would produce valuable
"I don't want to produce crops,"
I say a little louder.
He looks bhocked, but tries again.
"Why don't you buy some of this
wood-land and raise foxes?"
At this I am tempted to set our
dog on him. Our dog is symbolic
of the place. He is good for noth
ing. He barks at friendly visitors,
and once he slept soundly while the
house was robbed.
Instead of committing any such
inhospitality, however, I try patient
ly to explain that this country place
was not bought for profit, is not con
ducted for profit, can not possibly
show a profit, and, if it could, would
not be so dear to my heart It is
a beautiful, inefficient and wasteful
oasis in a rushing, efficient world.
Money is a grand possession, an
essential measuring stick. But there
are more people who seem to think
that there is no other measuring
stick, that nothing is justified unless
it is producing income, or increas
ing in value.
Such folks should consider the
lilies of the field, which sew not
neither do they spin; yet by simply
being their beautiful selves justify
They should learn wisdom of
Henry Ward Beecher, who once
bought two little pigs for two dol
lars, fed them twelve dollars' worth
of corn, and sold them for ten dol
lars. "Thus I made eight dollars," he
exclaimed triumphantly, "on the
pigs." And added, "I never expected
to make any profit on the corn."
New York is my pigs. I make
my profit there. But I never expect
ed to many any profit on my home,
my children, or my place in the
country. And I never shall.
People of the eastern part of the
United States have just had another
glimpse of that gigantic monster of
the air, the Graf Zeppelin. In the
teeth of terrific storms the great
German airship crossed the South
Atlantic from Europe to Brazil,
then flew northward to New York
and east across the Atlantic to its
home port on Lake Constance.
This trip, added to its flight
around the world last year, has re
moved the last doubt as to. the prac
ticability of aerial navigation, and
American capital is rushing in to
invest in the manufacture of Zep

For high speed and comparatively
light loads the airplane will remain

The one remaining domestic han
dicap which makes women discon
tented with life in the country
towns is the necessity of doing their
cooking and water-heating with
wood or coal, which makes too hot
a fire in the summer, or with elec
tricity, which is decidedly expen
sive, or over oilstoves, which are
slow. For cooking purposes the gas
which city people use is concededly
the most satisfactory fuel.
A bank in Indiana, finding Itself
with a bankrupt gas company on its
hands, Investigated the possibility
of bringing in compressed natural
gas from Oklahoma. The experi
ment worked, and the people of
Linton are getting the new gas at
the old price, in the old way, while
the expensive production plant in
the town has been abandoned.
This seems to point a way where
by every community, however small,
can have its gas mains and use this
handy fuel as well as In the cities.
According to the American Press,
there are 160 newspapers in the
United States which have been pub
lished continuously for 100 years or
more. Of these, 65 are dailies. 95
One of the weeklies, the Annap
olis, Maryland, Gazette, is more
than 200 years old, having been es
tablished in 1727. Five papers still
In existence were published before

The next step, still some distance
ahead but being considered with
great seriousness by church leaders,
is the reunion of the Methodist Ep
iscopal church with the other off
shoot of the Church of England, the
Protestant Episcopal Church in Am
erica. And some religious leaders
are looking farther than that, to
ward the ultimate merger of those
and the Presbyterians into one
gieat Protestant body.
Air and water do not seem to
most of us like raw materials of
industry. Yet one of the largest in
dustries in America uses nothing
else but the air from above and
around its factory and the water
from the river which flows past it.
This is the plant of the Dupont in
terests in West Virginia which ex
tracts nitrogen from the air by first
compressing the air until it is a li
quid, then mixing with it hydrogen
gas obtained from the water by el
ectrolytic decomposition. The re
sult is ammonia, which is the hand
iest form of fixed nitrogen, whether
you are going to use it for fertilizer
or for the manufacture of explo
sives. A similar process is to produce ni
trate fertilizer in huge quantities as
well as explosives for the Govern
ment at Muscle Shoals maybe.
When hay is shocked for baling
from the field it is advisable to bale
it as soon as it is thoroughly cured,
says the Oregon Experiment sta
tion, rather than allowing it to
stand in the field for a couple of
weeks. If waiting for a baler is
necessary, it pays to stack the hay.
