Carl, federal ststlsticsm for Iowa. -Carl predicted the production ol oats, flax, buckwheat and apples would fall below the five vear average. Prospects for a total corn production of -422,379.000 bushels places the current crop in Iowa about three per cent above the average crop of the 1S23-I32S period, Car] said in the report. He estimated Iowa's corn acreage at 10,978,000 acres this year, ;vu increase of nearly three per cent over the average acreage during the preceding five year period. The condition, of the Iowa oats crop at the time of harvest was 83 per cent, according to Carl, indicating an average yield of 36 bushels an acre and a total production of 215,651,COO bushels. He forecast the 1929 barley croa at 2Q..G1Q.QQO bushels said the spring wheat crop at 723,000 bushels. : Potato production in 1329 in Iowa will be about four per cent above the average production for the last five year period. He predicted the state's potato crop at 7,115000 tiushels.

Kitty Robinson of Spencer Graduates from Stock Show to White Way A review of the quarter's lessons. Devotional reading: 1 Tim. 4:12-16. Let^no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in ^ord, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. Till L. come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. Keglect not the gift that is in thee, v?hich vas given tliee by prophecy, ·with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery. Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that Thy profiting may appear to all. Tafee heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them; for in doing this thcu shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee. i * The International Uniform Son- i day School Lesson for Sept. 29. God's Providence in. the Essie and the Restoration. Devotional reading: I Tim. 4:12-16. .' * a T BT TVM- E. GILROY, D. D., Editor of The CongregaiionaJist, Provision for a review of the quarter's lessons, has been an eminently -wise arrangement on the part of the international committee which has selected the uniform lessons. It serves to emphasize the connecting link between the lessons of tiie quarter which, are chosen with reference to a definite theme, plan, and purpose, and it provides a fitting place for a. summary of the teachings in their full effect and import. Without such a review the lesson teachings would tend to be fragmentary. The review gives an opportunity ol seeing the studies in perspective and in all their relationship?. The -jr-^ral theme of this last qnarte:-'3 Ir-sons has been the prophetic :--.c-".ing and leadership in JmrTah, Curing/the "DeiiocL of "the Exile to Babylon, atid the'restora- tion of Jewish life in its Palestinian homeland. These lessons have had a definite Historical background in world happenings hi an ancient empire, in the struggle for power between great military leaders and in the change of dvnssties with the fortunes of battle. " The Prominence of Cyrus Great names appear in these lessons--names that are of vital significance in the world's general history. And the culminating event associated with the lessons, the return of the exiled Jews to their homeland, has to do with the" emergence to power of Cyrus, who combined with unusual military capacity the breadth and tolerance of- a. great administrator--a combination of qualities not always in erature is interpreted and enforced by wise and competent instruction. Great literature and great- teaching go hand in hand. The one re-en- lorces the other, and the one helps to create the other. Those who have studied these lessons during tht last quarter ought to carry \vith them the very vivid and dramatic picture of the whole people of the restored colonv. men. women and children, "all who could understand," being gathered together for instruction in the law. In a people thus devoted to the highest ideals as these have been expressed by its law givers, its prophets, and its saintly leaders, there lies the hope of constructive power. One can build upon such a foundation genuine nrosperity and a sound national life.* The work that these Hebrews had to ao was done under exceedin^-- difficult conditions and in th° midst of much of that- peril anc interference which has somehow z.1- nicst always characterized the con~~ ~~ ~^- "" ' - SPENCER, IA. --(Special)-- Kitt Robinson of the team of Kitty and Eddie Robinson, who started their career as professionals under the tutelage of Clint snd Bessie Robbins, Spencer's own stock company, is the second giri to achieve appearance on Broadway within the last year. She will appe»r at the Mansfield theater scon^n "Philadelphia." ^ Lillian Darville, daugber of Mr. snd Mrs. R. D.

It is an evidence of the moral force of these leaders that they stand tJday as tjeople of greater significanca and - importance than the fo_remost and best known men 01 their own time. This is in itself striking illustration of the ultimate strength of moral and spiritual reaiit^. Paul, aw a later date, reminded us that we must not despise small things, that x-rod has indeed chosen things that are j-.eak and despised, and "the tnm=s that are nought to brin^ to nc-ogni; the things that are." That fact has had inanv manifestations in history. A noet unknown and disregarded in his -day is accorded an honored place in the lit. erature of his country by future generations.
