An average wheat crop in the United States is j&ii# 400,000,000 busl els, that of 1880'^H^feg- been one-fifth larger than that: xhe consumption is about five bushels per capita .of population, or 250,000,000 bushels, so that, making a liberal allowance for seed, we have on hand at least 100,000,000 bushels a year for exportation, and probably one-fourth mora than that. The population of Great Britain is 35,246,562, but the consumption^ wheat is not quiteas great per capita jas in the United States, although the! whole amount consumed cannot be Iqss than onr annual sprpl W 100,000,080 bushels.

"Really, Mrs. Coleman,] the prospect is quite di^fidiful." "Helen Lawrence!" cried ^[rs. Pay-son, ifL handson'e young widowf "Why, I used to know a Helen Lawrence. She has grown literary, has she?" "Oh, I see it all," cried pretty, sentimental Grace Clair. "You were both rivals for Mr. Payeon; and you won; and ttiat blighted Miss Lawrence's heart, afid turned her into a literary woman." "But you are wrong," interrupted the widow, though with a simper. "It was not Mr. Payson; but quite another man, who," blushing and looking down, "did not plead his suit quite as successfully-a man who has, however, made a great name since.' Tlieonly Bitent person at the table had been Donald McLean^, who had been at Idlewood but a few days, yet long enough to have won the fancy of Grace Clair, Jhe bellerpf the season. Alas! how little i&b 4re^^4 ?i&fe he . h^come to Idlewood, eolelj^ecause he had'learend it was to be thWWestination of Helen Lawrence. ? He was at the station when Helen arrived the following day. "Why, Donald," she cried. "You hereP Ah," she added, shaking her head "you oughtn't to have come." "I came because I learned you were coming," he said, stoutly. "Foolish boy," she said; but smiled as she saidto. "You know I came down here to WP q met, and write a book." "I will he content with a dozen words a day," he i^aid, "and a sight of yok at the table. /1 do not expect mpch more." , That evening, as Grant Brown paaed Mrs. Coleman, on his way to the placable, he said: ; "Has the ogi*ess COEIC^, "Yes," Mrs. Coleman''^)swered^Kit I have placed your Chair closc own at my right.

"I mustn't play, even for one day. ^ut I thank you for the invitation."| j* Helen, when everybody had gone, moved her little desk out through the open French window upon the verj for it was cool and shaded there. Glancing back, as he followed in train of the picnic party, John Fost saw the figure all in white, on thejpx anda. "I—I have forgotten something," said, "and will have to go back.

I can't stand-it," said GWant Brown, and he also left; no one, not even Helen, dreaming why he went. When Mrs. Coleman realized how her family was being rcduced, she said, snappishly, to Mrs. Payson: "I told you she was a sharp one.

' " Bafaria has been callod the home of the corset, and although England France, Germany, and Adferica are manufacturing them largely, Bavaria still'holds her own in the market, There were imported to this country in 1881 about 15,000 dozen corsets, valued at not less than 86 per dozen, and over .50,000 dozen of an average value of $9 per dozen. O n these there was levied and collected a duty of $187,600, or about thirty-five per cent. The cost price of the best quality landed in this country was a fraction less than seventy-five cents per corset, which, adding the duty, made the cost over $1 each. One-third pf the total value of all the exports of Wurtemberg to the United States since 1865 has been in woven corsets. The total annual production of corsets in the kingdom was 1,250,000, valued at $750,000, and requiring 40,000 pounds of cotton yarn. The industry requires sixteen distinct processes in the change of the raw material to the finished corset.
