tions deductions and findings are to the effect
that Florida farmers should plant
corn this year, much more than ever
before. He says in a communication
to the Florida- Metropolis that the
corn crop in the United States on
March 1 was in round numbers about
250,000,000 bushels short of 1917 same
date; 225,000,000 bushels short of 1916
same date; 350,000,000 short of 1915
"He says there is but 60.3 per cent,
of last year's crop on hand; in 1917
same date there was 83.9 per cent,
of the.crop on hand; 71.1 per cent ni
1916 and 84.5 per cent, in 1915.
"This proves" that the crop is short,
and there is a large quantity being
"The price of corn March 1, 1915,
was 75.1 cents 1 per bushel; in 1916,
68.2 cents per bushel; in 1917 it was

Eucalyptus and Malaria.
"What is the connection between
the eucalyptus and the disappearance
of the malarial trouble? This has been
only very recently explained.- There
fs probably no tree having a greater
avidity for water than, the eucalyptus.
Experiments with seedlings grown In
water have shown that a baby blue blue-gum
gum blue-gum will take up the liquid at an ex extremely
tremely extremely rapid rate. As the blue-gums
grow at a marvelous rate (often as
much as ten or twelv feet Is added
to their height In a single season),
the consumption of moisture from the
soil goes on at a rapidly increasing
rate. Now, It Is well-known that the
malarial poison Is Introduced Into the
blood of man through the agency of a
certain "variety of mosquito (Ano (Anopheles),
pheles), (Anopheles), and the dwelling place of
these insects, when In the larval stage,
Is to be found In pools of water. With
the planting of the eucalyptus trees
the pools disappear and the marshy
land becomes comparatively dry. Thus
the breeding places of the mosquitoes
are destroyed and the insects are no
longer able to carry on their pernicious
activities." S. Leonard Bastin, in St.
Early Use of Metals.

known unknown to the more ancient people of

found. But among the Mexicans there
is evidence of red copper having been
fashioned into tools ; and although that
is wonderful enough when the usage is
seen to which the comparatively soft
metal was put, yet still more marvel marvelous
