At I Heema 88 If,the humble wheat «iru until now a nulRance "i and ;wai(to by-producfc of the wbtot growers of Hie land, 1H to como Into a new kingdom of ItH own. Long and cureriil tests which hitVe been made by the Armour Instltuto of Technology liave L-ouclualvely dem. oubtrated that wheat straw Is, au- perlor to ('very other vegetable ~ Ilbro Inmilator. I'ndir modern muthodH of con- ptrlictlou the wails and ceilings of buildlDKB are instilated with manufactured "Insplatlng boards," which not only make . such- construction warmer in 'winter and cooler In summer 1jut which add materially to the structural strength of the building. ^ In the manufacture of insulating Ijoard.s various viegetable , fibres have been used, but wheat straw bus iiroren- to be superior to thew all. The merit of wheat straw us an insulating material is in the cellular formation of its long, tough fibres which even in their natural state are almost indestructible under the corrodfng influence of the elements. When these long, tough cellular fibres arie reduced to a pulp and formed Into boards they become an Ideal insulating material becatise they are.-virttially impervious !to heat and cold and have strength which is most unbelievable. I The use of wheat straw in the manufacture of insulating material ought to prove a boon to the wheat growers of the Southwest who will be jible to dispoie of their straw -Stacks to the manufacturers at a nice^ profit instead of applying the torc^ to; them as they have been . dbiixK for .so many years. ICABV8. Emporia Oasette: The Atcblsonj dlobe . yesterday editorially j ex-i pressed the wish that Col. Charles Undbergb would "quit his ikerUouB flisbts." On the other hand, as one who wishes' Lindbergh well The Gazette hopes that he will add triumph to triumph, peril to peril until the fatal fall. It; should come quickly, trajgically, beautifnlly. Lindbergh'- is one ot those "Im- mprpil few who are llbot born to die." 'He Is'youth incarnate visiting this earth In his day of glory, which should be a; short and radiant season.

Only de^tb can save this young god. — immortal, changeleusi unconquered, ihi ideal ot an earth-bound .race. \ ^ Achillei, Ariel, Joan, St. Francis, Savonarola,—tile glprious procession of Hblniug youth that has saved thejworld by dramatizing its it^eals—all beckon' from the Elys- Iitn shored to this young Icarus of the macl^lne,' lie should hurry on his way through the dark hangar to Join the company of his peers.

There are changes from year to year.'of course, and there seems to be some ground for believing that weather runs In cycles of years.
