AH INCEEASE OF WAGES PEOPOSED With More Money for Ttetter Work—CT- fanlzecl Labor Cnjten Agnlnit a ChlnfHU Jjuiudryrrmn and He Will Have to Ouit — How u Mother Found Her Boy Aftor Eighteen Years' Separation—KnocU Arden CIU.B at Evansville. Muncie, Ind., Oct. 25.—Thomas Halt, Vice president of the American Windciv Class company, has announced that the company has submitted a scale to the workmen which Is regarded as very acceptable and which may lead to theeariy resumption of the factories throughout the country. The scale proposes 12 p-r cent, increasa each to the blowers, gat> orers, cutters and flatteners. and an additional 5 per cent, to the blowers and gatherers toward paying- the snappers. The sLuic provides for better rates than j-fciivcd under, the McKinley tariff Jaw. The manufacturers also propose to pay more for good or dass A glass and less for clasM B or poor glass, the aggregate beins the same as if there was no such quality scale. This is to encourage the blowers to make better glass, which will Tier.efit them and manufacturers alike. Boycott on a Chlnumiin. Sam Sir.g Lee, a Chinese laundryman, has a boycott on his hands. Muncie is B. labor union town, and Sam doesn't understand American methods. He would not employ union labor, and the result is that he is losing money everyday and will finally be driven out of the business. The other day Sam thought he would capitulate to the labor people and presented a proposition to them to take his employes into a union. His offer was rejected, and now he threatens that he will put prices down so low as to demoralize the laundry business. The situation is interesting and the outcome Is being- watched closely.

Purity >"o« the Lending Watchword " f the Great W. C. T. U. Toronto, Ont.. Oct. 25.— The first day's proceedings of the World's W. C. T. U. fourth bennial convention .brought out in sharp relief the fact that purity out now the leading watchword of the followers of Miss Frances E. Willard. Tiie huge polygot petition for the abolition of the liquor traffic was used to decorate the hall where the session of the convention was held, but the attitude of the union towards intemperance was taken for granted to a large extent, while emphasis was laid on social reform as the live, burning issue. Here, too, the fight is on between those who would regulate and those who would prohibit. The issue v:as stated squarely by Miss "Willard in her opening address. She and the overwhelming majority of the delegates think social impurity should beat- tacked with the same weapons which they are seeking to employ against iht liquor traffic — the strong arm ofthelaw- I>ady Henry Somerset, the world's vice president at large, has placed herself on record as favoring the British cantonment acts, which are designed to minimize the evils of vice among- the British soldiers stationed in India. Miss Wil- rard's address disposed finally of all talk of censuring Lady Somerset. She disagreed with her ladyship but would not hear of any sort of censure. At the meeting- of the executive board of the union the officers were all reelected. Reception to Miss Cisnei-os.

Oct. 25.— The Journal desDebats, commenting on the answer, of the B,-;t- ish government to the proposals of the United States monetary commission, says: "The British reply has completely decided the question ot free silver, which was brought to the front in such a way that in spite of the probability of a different solution it produced a feeling of uneasiness in the business world. We rejoice that the matter has been finally decided.". ABBREVIATED TELEGRAMS. The new congressional library will be formally opened to the public Nov, 1.

With Stored Wheat, Oat» and Corn. Forty years ago this statement was published in an agricultural exchange: "Wheat from thrashing time for the next six months shrinks 6 per cent That gives the shrinkage about two quarts per bushel, and the shrinkage of car corn is 20 to 30 per cent in six months." Last -winter the same account of the shrinkage of grain ^as published in an Ohio exchange, not being changed a particle from the article published 40 years ago. A correspondent of The Prairie Farmer, after calling attention to the foregoing, wites: I have always claimed that any article written for the press should be known facts to be of any valne and based upon tested experiment for a series of years by weighing when stored and weighing when sold. For the past ten j-ears I have been experimenting to learn the facts as to tho exact amount of shrinkage in weight of grain by storage and find the following facts by weighing: Clover seed from time of thrashing, if in good condition when stored, will in 12 months gain 1 per cent in weight. Two years ago I weighed three sacks of wheat as it came from the thrashing machine. The wheat was in good condition, and the three sacks weighed 405 pounds. They were placed in the wheat bin where nothing could disturb them, and they were reweighed April 1, making eight mouths in storage, and they weighed 405 pounds, showing no shrinkage. There may be a loss by wastage, but not in weight. The first day of August, 1894, I filled ten burlap sacks with oats as they came from the thrashing machine. Each sack was weighed separately, a card was sewed on each one stating weight, and the total weight of the ten sacks of oats was 1,2 72 pounds. The ten sacks of oats were reweighed Jan. 1, 1895, and weighed 1,316 pounds, a gain in weight of 44 pounds, showing a gain of 3}^ per cent. I assure you this was a surprise to me, but I called to mind that there had been no rain from the time they were heading until they were thrashed. In years of abundance of rain during growth and • ripening I think there would be less gain. It is the general opinion that corn shrinks more from time of husking in the fall up to May than any other farm product, many farmers say from 10 to 20 per cent. lu the fall of 1895 I commenced my experiments to test the shrinkage. I filled a large sack full of ear corn the 9th of November, 1S95, the day it was husked. A card was sewed on the sack giving date of weighing and weight, which was 153>rf pounds. I reweighed it April 1, 189G, making nearly five months, and it weighed 154 pounds, showing one-half pound gain in the five months. The fall wu.s a remarkably dry fall, and early varieties of corn were fully matured and dry, especially the small cob varieties, and this corn was of that kind. Large ear corn, *ad especially large cob varieties, during a wet fall will shrink from 5 to 0 per cent. This has been my experience by weighing. ^^___ Inexpensive Corncrib. The accompanying sketch from Conn- try Gentleman shows au end elevation of a building, which if built 13 by 80 feet, 8 feet to top of plate, will allow an alley 5 feet in width and give storage capacity at either side for corn and grain. It might be well to carry the slatting across the back end of the build- ELEVATION OF COENCKIB GRANARY. ing and thus allow for filling in more ear corn should more space be needed. It is suggested that the corncrib be provided with a false bottom, built in sections to be taken out as the com is removed, for this will allow circulation of air under the corn. Steps may be provided which will pull out and drop down into place or may be raised or shoved under the building to allow a wagon to drive close to the doorway. If in building you use several ties, a light scaffolding placed upon them would enable you to store away many empty potato crates and the like, which might take considerable space and yet are light This special crib >vas made to meet the requirements of a farmer who wanted an inexpensive crib to hold en one side sufficient corn on the cob to produce about 12 tons of cracked corn, and to have on the other side bins for whole corn, cracked corn, cornmeal and a small quantity of wheat, rye and buckwheat in separate bins. In the cut the shaded portion is slatted; the rest is in- closed with novelty siding. Wintering Be««. R. F.
