Gelletly addresses tho following letter to tho Yoi/ffi 1 ? Companion: In a recent issue of your most in- tores-ting paper there was an account of Mr. Gatling and his famous gun, and with your usual generosity yon ascribed the invention to purely philanthropic motives. This is not unlikely, for philanthropy takes many morbidly curious forms sometimes, as in the cases of Dr. Guillotine and Dr. Marat, not to go further back to tho thousand and one other clippers that have snipped h u m a n i t y according to their notion of its good, and probably Galling, Marvin, and their n u m e r o u s fraternity of killing-machine geniuses of the present generation, are actuated by liko motives. Furthermore, you express the generous hope that Mr. G. "may yet invent something as terrible as to render war impossible." 1 have often noticed this sentiment, lately, in the Youth's Companion and in many other publications; in fact, it seems to be the latest fad in newspaper philosophy, evidently, to put the best face on the present situation, on the principle of making the most of a bad bargain; but it doesn't seem to me to be the right idea, somehow. Now if we could go to work and reconstruct human nature on different lines, so that it would be scared by something "terrible," we might succeed in doing some- t h i n g in the frightening way. But one of the peculiar weaknesses of h u m a n i t y seems to be that it "won't scare worth a cent," so that when one puts on terrible airs and swaggers and wears fighting tools, the first thing you know some one else dons killing apparatus, goes him one better, and aches for a crack at h i m ; then the disturbance breeds and we have a general feud. Oh! the tale is old enough to be wearysome. Every barbarian and clown has played, or tried to play, the big jabber- wock act, from the Maori with his tatoo, the Indian with his paint, and the Chinaman with his paper macho false-face, down to the latest edition of the yellow journal for oh, so long, have they all been trying to strike terror, and they have ouly caused irritation and wrath. It is not so many centuries ago that it was considered necessary to enforce religion with the fagot, the. rack, tho maiden, .the thumbscrew, and so forth, and mediaeval genius expended itself in devices of this kind for humanity's salvation. How much further have we advanced when we argue that peace must be maintained with powder land shot? But if it were so why not garrison the* frontiers of these States'! If terror and threat is necessary between the States of Europe, why not between the States of America? And if the force of powder and ball must apply nationally, why not i n d i v i d u ally? Our magistrate recently had a colored gentleman before him who bore upon his stalwart person a billy, a razor, and a revolver, if I remember right, and he promptly sentenced him to fine and imprisonment; b u t if that darkie had been up to tho times ho might have made a pretty good stand, and said: Missa judge, sah, I is a peace michenary, I "is. I is inauratiu' de good time when everybody will be so afraid of everybody else dat nobody will 6te no mo." Then would ruy friend, tho squire, have replied: "Sweet angel of peace, thou has tarried too lou-g, evermore shalt thou abide ' w i t h us^ in the county madhouse, for fools of your stamp are dangerous at large," or words to that effect. Sherman said war was hell, and I suppose his ideas of hell were orthodox. Anyhow, the mature and sensible person's idea of war ought to be that it is a calamity, and tho glorification of war is another cal a m i t y almost or q u i t e as ba.d. That war is justifiable -before God and man is true, but only under outrageous circumstances, as in the present case, and then no danger ever so terrible but the brave will face. The prophets of old tell us of a time when nation shall not l i f t up the sword against nation; neither shall they learn war any more; when they shall beat their swords into plowshares and spears into pruning hooks. But that is not up to date. Tho big talk now is "armed neutrality," great navies, armies millions strong, war debts sapping the energies of the people; barracks and arsenals supplant "the vine and fig- tree where none dare to make afraid." Everything is stretched taut with expectation, and individuality is merged forcibly and furiously into nationality. Tho Youth's Companion is a good paper--in my opinion the best of its k i n d iu the c o u n t r y -- b u t it has a common f a u l t , a lack of ability to t h i n k out of the lines laid d o w n by orthodox respectability. Be tho subject as absurd as transmigration or as immoral as eternal torture, so long as it has the acquiescence of the u n t h i n k i n g 1 m u l t i t u d e it is for seii- ous consideiation, and a joke on it is sacrilege; whereas a n y t h i n g out of t h e d e c e n t l y and conventionally common is o d d , wild, and woolly, and a smile is iu order. In t h i s eon noction I recall a joke you had some time ago about Dr. Cuniniiugs, the celebrated London preacher, w h o , it was said, preached that tho end of the world would be iu ton years, and leased his house for twenty years. Now, I do not claim to remember m u c h of this man or his doctiine, although I once r'-ad a p a m p h l e t of his,'"The Coming Struggle," when I was a boj', but if my memory serves me right he was a millenarian--that's a believer in the m i l l o n i u m -- a n d Ib the m i l l e n a r i u u I he end of this world is o n l y the beg i n n i n g of a now and b e t t e r one, not the destruction of the planet ou which we dwell. The end of Span ish rule iu Cuba will not destroy the island--won't hurt it m u c h , iu fact. Some will suffer b u t let us hope it will be better for what's left. A n d so, in the ousting of tyranny and wrong that will usher in a new, a better "moral atmosphere," on a greater or universal scale, q u i t e a bit of a crowd Vfi\l have to be swept and yet'it is a "consummation devoutly to be,wished." I don't t h i n k , and I don't believe that C u m n i i n g s thought, that the end of such a fool world as would depreciate the value of real estate any, 'tut rather that t r u t h , justice, and equity would really enhance the value of property. The popular notion that the end of tho world is tho destruction of the planet like a rocket when the fuse burns out, belongs to quite another school of thought. Things that are different ought to be kept distinct. There was a man numod Miller who, iu this country, about "the forties," capped the .climax of "orthodoxy" by preaching that .this bad end had come and ou a certain date a grand display of national pyrotechnics would be in order, but beyond the mere fact that Millerism and millenarianism begin to spell tho same way there's nothing common between them. The one is hopeless extinction, b'lack danination; the other is the hope of Israel, tho angel song, "Peace OD earth, good-will to men." J. F. GELLETLY. WHAT CORN"GOSTS. The University of Illinois has been trying to find out what it costs the farmers of Illinois to raise corn. It had replies from-300 fanners in all the corn-growing areas. Up to husking the items of expense as given in the replies do not vary greatly, but subsequent expenses are absurdly reported to vary from 11.3 cents in one county to 38.8 cents in another. The average cost of raising corn was found to bo for tho State $8.72 per acre, or 16.1 cents a bushel. Including interest on the farmer's equipment and the cost of cribs, shelling and hauling to market, the conclusion is reached that in 1896, which was an average year, with an average yield of 54 bushels per acre, the cost from breaking tho ground to delivery of the corn at the elevator was 19.5 cents. This covers rent of tho ground, or interest on the value of tho laud, interest and depreciation on plant and wages for tho farmer himself aud others engaged in the work of raising corn. The average farmer worked 60 acres of corn. At this rate, if ho got 29.5 cents 'per- bushel, ho cleared over $300. He^'-got this clear; fn addition to wages, interest, depreciation and other costs. Some years ago in Kansas a like estimate was made, with a different result, owing to the fact that manure, which cost nothing, was figured in at a big price; the farmer's teams were charged for at-'Kvery stable prices; the farmer's fafho'r wag valued above the local rates. 'Naturally the cost of producing corn in Kansas on this inflated basis was something tremendous. The estimate of the cost of producing corn iu Nebraska was estimated seven yeats ago by the Statobureau of labor at $6.40. an acre', including cribbing, making the cost per buslie'l, -on an average'yield of 40 bnshels per acre, cents." At the experiment station the cost ,was 15 cents per .bushel. It is desirable that the cost and profit of raising every crop should be worked out earefully-in every State. Delightful Summer Tourg. For the convenience of those "who seek the ; most attractive way .of spending a Summ'or' vacation, the Pennsylvania Railroad Company has arranged two d e l i g h t f u l tours to the North, under the personally- conducted tourist system, July 26 and August 16. Tho points included in the itinerary and the country traversed abound in nature's beauties; Watkins Glen, Niagara Falls, Thousand Islands, Quebec, Montreal, A.U Sable Chasm, Lakes Champlain and George, Saratoga, and. the Highlands of tho Hudson are all rich in interest and replete with natural attractions. Each tour will be in charge of one of the company's tourist agents, assisted by an experienced lady as chaperon, whose especial charge will be unescorted ladies. The rate of $100 from New York, Brooklyn, Newa'rk, Trenton, Philadelphia, Earrisburg, Baltimore and Washington covers rail way and boat f a r o f o r t h e entire r o u n d t r i p , parlor-car seats, m e a l s on l o u t o , h o t e l o n l e i t a i n m c n t , I r a n s l ' o i charges, eari iagu hire -- in t'aot, every item of necessary expense.
