What if the rain doesn't arrive for two or three weeks, or a month and a half in .luly and .\ugnst. the corn li 'aves roll, the ears shrivel and fail to nil. and the kernels wither and . :ise to prow.

This is wiiat Professor Roberts is in a fair \\ay to find out. Last year he crossed plants of a dozen of these western Kansas varioiies: Pride of Saline, Sherrod, Wallace, etc., wilh the Chi- ufse and vice-versa. This crossing work was done both at .Manhattan on tile experiment station grounds, and at the branch station at Hays, under his direction, and by a new and vastly improved method of artiticlal pollination which he has devised. The crossed or hybrid ears were all plant- e<i at Manhattan this season, making over forty hybrid •families." .Each hybridized ear was planted, in a separate plot and full notes and observations of its characters and the amount of inheritance of ^ th« Clil- nese blood were made. —6% Money.

The choice was made this afternoon after a spirited contest and after representatives of iialtlmore, St. Louis, Chicago Denver and New York had presented the claims of these cities in detail. The committee went into executive session to examine carefully the various offers of the cities before deciding. It then developed that St. Louis .lad offered JTD.OOO in addition to-the use of Convention Hall. It was contended that this mef the Baltimore cash offer of $100,000, inasmuch as Baltimore would have to spend part of that sum in preparing its convention hall. \Vhen the vote was taken, however, .t was found that a majority ot the committee favored Baltimore.

These and their children ate barfed from becoming Mandarins. Their grandsons, according to the letter ot the law, are permitted to hold government posts, but this permission has seldom been granted. Some years ago a grandson of Cheng Chang Keng, the most famous Pekin actor of his day, was appointed one of the secretaries of the Chinese legation In Berlin. The appointment aroused a storm of protest among official circles in China, and but for the support of the empress dowager would have been revoked. .

When the Register, iver a year ago. *as publi.shing his eriiions (you were in Washington. D.

Stewart, the .Ict- Ing editor would not publish it—lit seenis what 1 write Isn't fit to be luiblished In the Register)—yet he ad- •iiitted he was paid for publishing the ectiire.

More than me of your subscribers has complain- 'd to the writer about these so-called 5ermo :is. Very truly. .S. .M. IRWIN. 176.^; Pale St.. San Diego. Cal. , .lanuary L'. 1912. The article (o which Jlr.-Irwin refers was called out by aft editorial laragraplr which seriously reflected ilion Pastor Russell, and was printed a coiujiliance with the Register's in- arishle rule that anyone who thinks in injustice has been done to himself ir anyone else in tiiese colcmns shall lave, an opportunity to say so. The irtide was written by one of the most ilglily respected citizens of lola, :ind Is publication was not paid fofr. The recollection of the acting cdi- or. in charge of the lleglster when , he Pastor's sermons were being run n tills iiaper, is that his only reason "or not printing the letters from Mr. Irwin was that if they had been printed they would without doubt have been answered by some oftlie Pas"or's friends—of whom. It may be said, 'here are many In and about lola—and I theological etontroversy would thus have beeij precipitated upon the paper which It has always been tho policy )f the Register to avoid. The e/inlract for printing the ser- iioiis was made under the iniprossion hat Parlor Russell was tho successor >f Dr. Talniage. and when It was dls- •overed that this was not so the con- 'rac-t was not renewed. .Mr. Irwin Is quite mistaken in he- ievlnu that the Register Is uflwllllng •o .print what he writes. This paper has i)rlnted a great iriany commpni- "atlons from his pen during the past 'hirty ye.irs. and it hones It will have •be iirivilege of printing very many more. -THE SERVANT IX THE HOl'SE."
