CORN REIfiXS AN KING.
The Sovereign I as Pretty
s He Is
Whoever may be president, corn
is king. The Board of Trade has
always admitted it, the railway com
panies know it, and the farmers
know it, and the farmers cannot for
get it All the other cereals how
allegiance to corn. Had the soil of
North America refused to yield
corn, Great Britain wonld still he
our sovereign country. Chicago
would be a desert marsh by the side
of an unknown lake. The Pacific
slope would be au undiscovered
country. The progress of Western
civilization would be retarded half a
entuiy. Corn has built more miles
of railroad, erected more buildings,
clothed and fed more people than
any other product of American 6oil.
Corn built Chicago, aud when Chi
cago was reduced to ashes, corn
rebuilt her. Yet there are people
in Chicago and many . other places
who wouldn't recognize a stalk of
growing corn if they saw it.
Aside from it3 utility, the grow
ing stalk and the ripened ear of
corn have an interest second to hard
ly anything else the soil produces.
Both the artist and the architect
use them in their creations r.3 em
bodiments of strength and symme
try. Ic might be said further, with
out stretching the truth, that the
cornstalk has a recoguized value it
the realm of music, for who has not
heard of the cortiotalk fiddle?
But seriously, the growing stalk
of corn is one of the mo3t graceful
and beautiful of all the plants nour
ished by the bosom of mother earth.
It is a little timid and shrinking at
first. It is distrustful of Jack
Frost, for it knows that Jack dearly
loves to take a passing nip at its
tender green shoots. And with
prophetic appreciation of a possible
ultimate existence in liquid form it
does not like water. If lhe soil be
wet and cold it turns yellow with
spleen, and dies untimely; but if
the sun smiles and the earth absorbs
his brightness the little plant braces
up right speedily and grows lusty
and strong. By the first of June
on the mellow ridges it is as high as
your knee, and it seems to nod its
delight as the passing cultivator
throws a furrow of soft, moist earth
over its roots. During July it
grows an inch during the night, and
during the day you can almost see
it grow. If there is no drought and
the first days of August are hot and
sultry you may pass through the
field and actually hear the corn
grow. The term has often been
used to indicate the limit of exag
geration, but it is positively true
that you can hear corn grow on a
hot day in August. The iu tense
heat hangs over the held m quiver
ing lines, and the waving blades ab
sorb it as burning sand licks up
water. Earth and air are drawn
upon to the utmost, aud they re
spond so readily that the green strlks
swells and strains at its armor-like
covering till the latter groans a
plainly audible protest. It you
have heard this peculiar rending
sound while passing through a corn
field on a hot day in August you
can truthfully say that vou have
"heard corn grow."
It has already been said that
Chicago was built and rebuilt by
corn. It may also be said that
many of our best citizens are corn
made men. The bone and the
sinew ot Luicago business me are
from Western cornfields. The bare
foot boy dropped the four seed ker
nels into the cross made by the
marker and begrudged the hired
man the sturdier business of cover
ing tneni witu a noe. lie put on
boots ' and manipulated the hoe,
burning with envy of the youth with
down on his lips who drove the
marker. -Then he drove the marker
himself, rode the two-horse culti
vator on long daily crusades against
weeks, and husked fifty bushels in a
day on a wager with the hired man,
who could only place forty-jight
to his credit. He is a progressive
youth, and suddenly discovers that
the end of corn is not to be husked
and taken to market, but that is
really the beginning; that its future
career is to build railroads and cities
and coloseal fortunes. So the youth
throws down the hoe, adjures the
cultivator, pulls oil his husking
gloves and arrives in Chicago, a sub
ject of King Corn. You see him
now every day. He is a director of
the board of trade, and is worth half
a million ; corn did it. .He is a
pork-packer and can break a bank ;
it is corn that did it, for without
corn there would be no pork to
pack. He is a wholesale grocer,
dry goods, clothing, lumber, iron,
aggricultnral implement merchant,
and lives live a prince; and corn
did it ; for but for corn there woujd
have been nothing to receive in re-i
turn for "goods. The streets are
paved with corn.
These corn-mac men and this
corn-made city are as much to the
endless Western cornfields as the
cornfields are to them. No amount
of improvement of the waterways,
supplemented by the puny railway
enterprises of a New Orleans, a St
Louis, and a Kansas City, could
provide for the marketing of the
annual product of the 72,392,720
acre American cornfield. So Chi
cago became a necessity to corn as
corn is now a necessity to Chicago,
Her lines of railroad, radiating in
all directions, like long spokes in an
immense wheel, ie etrate every
portion of the big cornfield. They
are like huge arteries in the wiuter
and spring, transmitting a warm
life current, which returns in the
fall through the main flood-gate at
the foot of Lake Michigan, a de
luge of plenty that reaches every
part of the world.
One billion, four hundred aud
fifty-six million, one hundred thou
sand bushels of corn in 1887 ; value
received, $646,000,000. This year
there will be 100,000,000 bushels
at the least, and people at home and
abroad are crying for it. Corn is a
pure type of democracy ; it has none
of the effected aristocratic whims
and privileges of wheat It is for
for the masses, and the masses are
for corn a more popular monarch
never reigned. Think of his gen
erosity ? This year the train which
conveys his gifts to his subjects, and
will pass through Chicago, will con
tain ueaaly 3,000,000 cars, each load
ed to the brim. This train will be
hauled by 50,000 locomotives, and
will reach around the globe. So
heavily loaded a train must needs
travel slowly; it will require a whole
year in which to pass through Chi
cago. And it will stop oer here
longer than anywhere else. The
engine 3 will water and coal up here,
and several million bushels will be
thrown off for the use of citizens
for even the butcher, the baker, and
the candle8tickmaker of Chicago
have contributed to the glory of
One of the chief delights of the
man who as a youth abandoned the
hoe and two-horse cultivator to come
here and help build Chicago for.
as has already been intimated, they
are the men who builed the fastest
and strongest is to make a flying
visit through the lig cornfield a
this season of the year. It is a, duty
as well as a pleasure. His practiced

government nre of such weighty im
portaiice as a foreknowledge regard

traiu whirls him past mile after
mile of the triumphant, gracefully
waving plant, its utility is apt to be
forgotten. No couctry or climate
can match the view unrolled before
him. An Iowa cornfield is a pano
rama without a blemish. The ex
havsted soil of the eastern state:
yields a grudging store of "nubbins"
and the stunted stalk bends beneath
the disgrace of its fallen estate. For

Understood that she was to be
married next day. Indeed,
the lucky young man was on
the ground and waiting.. He
was a six-footer, slim as a
toothpick, awkward as a calf,
and dead in love. The girl
was more shv, but not to be
bluffed by my presence. When
entered the front door, the
young man, who answered, to
the name of Davy, ran out of
the back. He felt confused
and embarrassed, and, taking
his seat on a log ubout thirty
feet from the house, he hid his
face as much as possible be

called, but he put his finger in

The fine broadcloth whih the

not be corrected. Under the Mills

Traffic in Worms.
A number of . people in New York
city find an extensive aud profitable
business in selling sand worms to
fishermen for bait. One merchant
of this commodity has sold iu the
busy season as many as 30,000 worms
in a week. There are two varieties,
the sand worms or blood worms as
they are commonly called, and the
The blood worms are much more
plentiful than the white, runniug in
the ratio of 100 blood to one white.
The blood worms are fouud on a
rocky beach, and in sand in which
there is considerable vegetable mat
ter. This variety is obtained along
the north shore of Long Island, iu
the vicinity of Fort Hamilton and
along the shores of Etaten Island,
The white worms are found in clean,
white sand, along the south side of
Long Island, Sandy Hdok, and the
coast of New Jersey.
Both varieties are dug at low tide.
When the weather is hot they come
up to the surface, and when it is
cold they go down deeper. They
arc about six inches long; the white
worms rather flat, blunt at both
ends, and lined along the side Avith
a short fringe; the blood worms
smooth, more pointed, round, resem
bling very elosely the earth worms
found iu rich soil.
Thousands of people are engiged
in digging them, and make a good
living in supplying the market for
them. An entire family devote3 it
self to the work, earning $28 to $30
a week. A single man has earned
at times, $12 a day by digging aud
selling those worms.
There is n great demand for them,
and it so M.'Mnies happens that a
dealer is notable to fill his orders.
The dealer referred to has a box full
of telegrams and letters from Ocean
Beach, Asbnry Park, Philadelphia,
Newburg, and other places, asking
for information about these worms,
d enclosing orders for them.
The white worms command a
price of 23 cents a dozen, and have
been known to sell for $7 a hundred.
The blood worms generally sell for
40 cents a dozen. They are dug
with a hooked fork, and re found
about eighteen inches below the sur
face. They must be alive to be sala
ble, as they are not fit for bait when
dead. They can be kept alive for a
week, and n man must understand
the business or he is liable to lose a
thousand at a time.
These worms are used for catch
ing striped bass mostly. Shedder
scrubs are used for catching weak
fish. In catching bass men put on
bathing suits and go into the surf,
where the fish are larger than in
deep water. The fish are very fond
of the worms. Sometimes a man
need merely lay a worm across his
hook, toss it quickly into the surf,
and he may as quickly pull it out
again, with a fish on the end of his
line. It is not an uncommon thing
to pull in a fish that weighs twenty
five pounds. At Ocean Beach a
short time ago a man landed a strip
ed bass weighing forty pounds.
Along the Hudson this fish is often
found, but not as large as the beach
es. .Bass weighing three or four
pounds are also caught from the
Women are quite enthusiastic
over the sport of fish.ng, and the
dealers frequently receive orders
from them. A woman will visit a
worm store iu I he course of her fore
noon shopping and leave an order
for one or more dozen, in view of a
fishing trip the next day. New

How ths Farmer Aees lu
When Gen. Hariison was telling
some Western farmers, a few days
ago about the richness of their land
and extolling the beneficial effects of
protection, he studiously avoided all
reference to the fact that the farmers
of those States paid last year ninety
millions of dollars in interest cn
mortgages. If there are in those
States one-third of the farmers of
the country, or about two million
five hundred thousand, and if those
of them who have their farms mort
gaged number only one third, they
pay each more than one hundred
dollars intent on these debts. Yet
these burdens have fallen upon ttio 1
farmer in a period in which he. Via
told that protection was benefitting -him.
If lie could have bonght un-
taxed clothing, sngar, rice, and all
the articles of iron and steel he uses
and saved also the taxes cn steel he
pays when he ships his products
over the railroads, he wonld have
had far more money in his pocket
every year than he now pays in in
terest on his mortgages, and his
mortgages also might have been un
necessary. Since the protective tariff was laid
and the 'o v tariff of 1876-'30 w. s
abandoned the farmers have seen
the price of corn go down from an
average of 93 to an average of G3
cents and wheat from an average of
$1.83 to an average of 83 cents per
bushel. He has thus lost 30 cents
on his corn and $1 on , his wheat,
and iu addition, by the raising of
duties on much that he buys, on the
uverage from 23 to 47 per cent, ho
loses more than 10 cents on every
bushel of corn at 63 cents, and he
loses 1 4 cents on every bushel of
wheat at 83 Cent3. This is a total
loss on his corn of 40 cents per bush
el and ou his wheat of $1.14. 4 Thus
his corn, so far as its buying power
is concerned, is really reduced from
93 cents to 53 cents per bushel, and
his wheat from $1.83 to 67 cents
Yet it is claimed for protection
that it raises the price of the farm- .
er's products and that at the same
time home competition prevents the
raising of the prices of the necessa
ries he buys. On the contrary, as
every intelligent, observant and well
informed man ought to see," the
prices of the farmer's products have

Another man gone wrong!
Brother Bulkhead, late of the
Durham Tobacco Plant, is re
ported to have gone over to
the third party, so-called. . It
is said he is to become the ed
itor of the third party organ
to be established at Durham
It is evidently his desire to be

of Democracy and his vigorous
shelling of the Republicans

avoid hari-kari. There seems
to have been a mistake, how
ever, in this respect, also, for

"been and gone and done it."
He has fallen by the wayside.
Alas, that one, so fair, so fresh,
so fond of fun should have
so soon been led away into the
riaths of distinct opposition to
all the best interests of the
people among whom he was
horn and has so far been bred !
As he himself might say, in
his youthful, sophomoric way,
Yale, vale, longa vale !
