January Crop Report. December was a warm dry month, the mean temperature being above and the precipitjaion below, the normal. The snow fall inithe lower peninsula was light. The ground was not covered December 15 in the southern and central counties, and on December 31st the average deptb in these sections was less than one inch. The total number of bushels of wheat reported marketed in December is 1, 494,736, The number of bushels reported marketed in the five months, August-December, is 6,235,103 bushels which is 1,693,932 bushels less than reported marketed in the same months last year. The average condition of live stock in the State is reported as follows, comparison being with stock in good healthy condition. Horses 94 per. cent; sheep and cattle, 95 per cent, and swine 97 per cent. , The average price of wheat January 1,1895 at the usual places of marketing by farmers was 50' cents per bushel; pf corn 46 cents, and of oats 32 cents and the average price of hay $7.95 per ton. The average price of fat cattle was $2.94 per ewt., of fat hogs $3.96 per cwt. and of dressed pork $4.97 per cwt. The average price of each class of horses was as follows: Under one year old, S18.19; between one and two years old, $28,42; between two and three years old, §42.58; three years and over, $60.77. Milch cows were worth $27.91.- Cattle other than milch cows under one year old were wdi th, per head, $6.78; between one and two years $12.18; between two and three, $18.99; and three and over $25.61. The average price of sheep under one year old was $1.32, and one year old and over, $1.64; and hogs under one year old were woith $4.32, and one year old and over, $8.79. The prices here given are for the State. For each class of horses and for sheep they are higher, and for milch cows, each class of cattle other than milch cows, and hogs, lower than the prices ruling in the southern four tiers of counties. The difference, either way, however, is in no case large. Compared with January 1, 1894, there has been a decline in the prices of all farm products named in this report, excepting corn and oats. Corn averages 3 cents and oats] cent a bushel more now than one year ago. Tbe loss, qii wheat is 5 cents per bush- el- The decline- on fat cattle is 16 cents; fat hogs, 73 cents and dressed pork, $1.10 per cwt. The several classes of horses have declined in values as follows: under one year old, ■ $.1.68; between one and two years old, $7.29: between two and three years, $10.07. and three years old and over, $15.06. Milch cows have declined SL62 per head. Sheep under one year old have declined 3$ cents per head, and those, one year old and over, 52 cents per head. Hogs under one year old average 94 cents less, and those one year old and over, $1.40 less th;a.n a year ago. Washington Gardner, Secretary of State. TURF TOPICS. The sulkies drawn by Alis and Azote weigh only 29 pounds. Iago's 2:15 is the fastest mile gone on the Pacific coast this season. . George E. Smith has bought Thurston from Gideon & Daly for $2,000. Stambonl is.in training for this fall, and a fast mile is expected from him. "..Belle Hamlin, 8:ia}£, is caring fox her first f pal by Mambrino King at Vil- l«gft JPfttm.. , She stride of "sweet little Alix" when - extended is .tremendous, being over 23 feet. Riley Grannon, the famous young plunger, is said to have won $12,000 on Lissak recently. The average life of a London omnibus horse is'five years, while that* of a team horse is only four." _ Kentucky Ban; a well known runner of a'-few.seasons age, dropped dead re- oentlv at Morris park. Asote, 2:09^, was first put to a plow on the Palo Alto farm, where, a field- hand discovered his great speed. C. J. Hamlin, tho owner of some of the fastest traitors alive, has announced that te \fill"race no more 2-year-olds. "driver William Portescne was heavily fined by the judges at a race recently at Toronto for keeping a sick horse on the track. Friends of Taral excuse his poor showing" at Saratoga with tho statement that weights were* "kept down so low that he conld not gut a decent mount. Budd" Doble, the driver of trotting horses, has been sued for not driving Vera sufficiently to develop her speed. Ten thousand ■dollars is demanded. - Is Too Much. Land Cultivated? The Rural New Yorker is one of onr-. siost esteemed contemporaries. Its head Is as level as the great corn belt We tee surprised' therefore, when The Rnral ■ cries ont to stop the irrigation move-' tneht because there is too much land tin-' ler cultivation in this country already.' This is foolishness. Can there-be too much land -under cultivation, when t, 000,000 men are tramping the conn-< try, ont of work, today? The food that would fill the mouths of them and their families would occupy in its cultivation many thousands of the acres that would* be brought -under cultivation by irrigation. Go to a meeting of workingmen in the slum districts of The Rnral's own Bity of New York. Cast your eye oyer the 3ea of heads. Yon will see that the faces are pinched and sharp, the complexions pale and tallowy. The hands and bodies ore often lean and shrunken. There is not a plump man among them, with the rarest exception. What does this prove? It proves actually that these men do not get enough to eat. Look again at the children in these slum districts. They look like little withered old men and women. They, too, are insufficiently fed, plainly enough. It is true, the price of some farm products has been low the past two years. It -was not because people did not want and need to buy and eat them. It was because they did not have the money to buy them. Nol When the food the farmer raises is bo low in price that he can hardly make a living at all, at the same time that millions are in sore need of the .very things he raises, it is a sign that something else is the matter than too much land under cultivation. Xale's Irreparable Loss. The public will sympathize prof ound- ly with Yale college in the loss of her most promising student. He did not die, but he left the college to enter on a business career. Eager eyes have watohed him from the time he entered the varsity to the day he left it It is not quite sure whether the young man, Mr. Sanford, would have been a Shakespeare or a great statesman. Which way his surpassing intellectual talents would jump had not yet developed.' Was Mr. Sanford a great Latin scholar? Well, no, he was not Then the elegant and poetic Greek, the French of ancient tongues, must have been his specialty? No, not exactly. Somehow he never took to the dead languages at all. He only knew one living one well, his own. He was not the college prize orator. His forte did not lie in mathematics, and he was not the class poet. Still his loss to Yale is irreparable and more bitterly felt and sadly commented on by the remaining students than if he had been prize orator, poet, master of dead and living languages all in one. Mr. George Foster Sanford failed in his examinations in the varsity law school. But in the varsity athletio games he was simply great He is 6 feet 3 and weighed 193 pounds, and Yale had hopes that he would beat the fellows from all the other colleges out of their boots. Therefore all Yale wears crape for the loss of one of its greatest sons. A Cincinnati man has shown himself almost as unsophisticated as the youth who was asked by a woman to hold her baby a minutti in a railroad station. Mr. Casimir Werk built what the architects assured him solemnly was a fireproof house. The funny part is that Mr. Werk solemnly believed them. A fire broke out in the mansion. Mr. Casimir Werk, the Cincinnati man who pinned his faith to architects' assurances, shut up the room in which the fire appeared, so as to let it burn itself about. He would not let the firemen in, so entirely did he pin his faith to the architects. There is something touching in this childlike confidence. The room and the fireburn- ed themselves out. Bnt when they stopped Mr. Casimir Werk's house had utterly vanished from this earthly scene, with everything in it Loss, $50,000. Frances Power Cobbe shows herself in her biography, just published, a more remarkable woman than even she has had credit for being. She would be willing to live her life over again just as it was. She writes, "I would gladly accept the permission to run my earthly race once more from beginning to end, taking sunshine and shade just as they have flickered over the long vista of my 70 years." Miss Cobbe is certainly one of a very small number of persons in this respect, almost alone, in fact New Jersey has a unique dog law, according to a decision made by one of her judges. A man was sued for keeping a vicious dog. It was put in evidence that he had bitten one person, no mora The judge decided that one bite did not make a vicious dog, and that, therefore the bitten one was not entitled to damages. Jersey canines are therefore entitled to one good bite at a mem* ber of the human race. That ever was inaugurated in Saline.
