Rivalry Discover i S the world on the eve of another commercial revolution due to an accidental chemical discovery? Is synthe- tic rubber going to take its place upon equal terms of com- petition with the Juice of the trees and plants which so long have supplied the rubber commerce? Just ut the present time English and German chemists are disputing over their claims to precedence in finding a way to create from certain raw materials a chemical counterpart of natural rubber. The world at large is not directly concerned in the deter- mination of this question of priority, but it has a very deep interest in the commercial practicability of these dis- coveries. Two years ago Dr. F. E. Matthews of England, then associated with other distinguished chemists, among them Prof. W. H. Perkin. Sir William Ramsay and Prof. Fernbach, was seek- ing to perfect a cheap process for the manufacture of synthetic rubber and by chance left some Isoprene and metallic sodium in contact for a period of abou...

They pro- pose that this officer shall not be elected by the people but shall be elected by the judges of the Dallas county courts.

(By C. P. HARTLET.) Great progress has been made In 'recent years in a more general adop- tion of fall selection instead of spring selection of seed corn, but there Is >room for still greater progress. Nearly all farmers should select their seed corn three to four weeks earlier than they do. As an excuse for not having good ■aeed it is customary to state that the laeason was exceptional. Such seasons will continue to occur, and the only way to escape loss la by being pre- pared each year for an exceptional year. Last year was a very adverse season in some of the corn states; consequently this past spring it was necessary to import seed corn Into these sections. Nevertheless, well ac- climated and unquestionably higher yielding seed coMld have been selected last S...
