Virtue That Abides in Clean Linen MtBlT FERTILIZINQ DRY LAND. The Moisture Content of Soli Muit Bs Considered. Tho problem of fertilizing dry lind Is not tlio same as fertlllilng moist land or land In the humid regions where the soil contains n fair supply of moisture nt nil seasons of tlio year. The writer Is Informed by Mr. T. C. Wallace of California that In tho dry rolls of California the roots of tho Krnpo vines are very deep In the soil, and that, where Irrigation Is or Is not practiced, It Is found to be very dlr Ilcult to properly fertllizo tho vineyards and orchards. It Is a problem on which many are working, but It Is doubtful If any have fully solved It how to get the fertilizer that Is put into tho surface soli to decompose and yield up its plant food for the roots In tho moist layer of soil far below. It might be suggested that the Irrl gallon water would do tho work, but the irrigation water is not at the top of the soli for a long enough period to accomplish very much In this regard. It is not a question of dissolving what Is soluble but se'ems to bo a question of establishing a moist medium In tlio vicinity of tho fertilizer In which moist medium the soil organisms can work. The problem of fertilizing grape vines nnd fruit orchards Is tho greatest because theso do not permit of tho turning over of the soil for tho purpose of working fertility Into it. The problem that exists In California all tho time exists here In the Mississippi valley part of the time. We have dry seasons In which the effects of the fertilizers applied to our vineyards and orchards Is not greatly felt. The moisture conditions of tho soil have a very large Influence on tho decay of manure. For this reason many of tho purchasers of fertilizers complain of not getting results from the fertilizers, without ever taking Into account the fact that tho availability of the plant food In the fertilizers depends on tho perfection of the wa, ter supply. Land habitually dry Is exceedingly difficult to fertilize, for the reason that the fertility remains. In the soil without being submitted to the agencies that would change It Into materlaJs that the roots of trees and vines can use. In the fertilizing of orchards aid vineyards, the fertilizer should bo gotten Into the soil and should be applWd at, times of the year when the moisture supply is likely to be good but is nnt t. J)! Tho nntlon's In Its crtiRado for cleanliness, and promises to prove herself a worthy example to the other cities of tho land. Tho activities of Dr. W, C. Woodward tho past week havo centered In tho effort to reform tho laundry business of tho city. Every person who launders for pny the clothing, sheets, pillow cased, tnblo cloths or similar nrtlcles belonging to any other person will be required to register with the health odlcer. "What tlio health department de sires," says Dr. Woodward, "Is to bring under better control tho many homes of tho poorer clnsses In which washing Is done for hlro to supple ment tho scant wage of the head of the household. Too often theso houses are in an uncleanly condition. "And there Is reason to believe that In many cases, especially In tho summer season, when heating water for washing not only diminishes tho profit of tho operation, but nlso adds to tho WASHINGTON'. discomfort of tho household, tho used is not properly heated, nnd clothing from various souccs is passed successively through tho same , dirty wntor; and, moreover, that which, when efficiently done, Is a reasonably safe disinfecting process.

"And finally, during rainy days In summer, nnd particularly during Inclement weather during tho winter season, clothing Is him up or spread about within tho living rooms of tho premises, often amid foul odors which effectively permeato it, nnd occasionally on promises occupied In part by patients suffering from conimunlcablo diseases.

Ho has linen, sliver and glass wiso SAM UNCLE and is getting forclcnon one coun that Is that If barnyard manure Is to be placed In the. surfaco soil of an orchard,' It should be gotten In In the fall, the coming of the fall rains If possible. If it is to be applied to the surface, It should bo put on In the winter, that the rains and snows may wash tho soluble portions Into the soil. If the fertilizer is a highly nitrogenous one, like drh'd blood. It should lie worked Into the soil In the spring as early as possible. If it Is applied In the fall, a large part of the solublo plant food will disappear before spring. The part of this that will bo most lost will be the nitrogen, tho very ingredient for which the blood is applied. Yet If It Is applied too lato In tho spring to get the benefit of tho spring moisture, tho nitrogen Is likely to bo largely dissipated Into tho air. Thus, In dry land fertilizing, the moisture supply must be closely considered, and because It Is not closely considered Is tho reason that some of our fruit growers do not get the results from their orchards they have expected. bo-fo- Are Turning from Whisky to Beer 0, of the FROM tho preliminary reportrevenue of Internal It Is apparent that the consumption of whisky and other- ardent spirits Is on tho decrease and that tho consumption - PROTECTING TREES.

Every step is haunted by a goblin or a ghost, and every dark and gloomy corner has been the scene of a tragedy. The castle is well keot and Sir George Colthurst, the owner, makes it as pleasant as he can for the thousands of tourists who come here every year from all parts of the worlu. and of course a large major! ty of them are Americans. No tourist thinks of visiting Ireland without seeing Blarney Castle, and aside from the legends and the satis faction of having been here it is well worth the trouble. JIhe tower of "Keep," which was the fortified part of the building, is almost intact exept the floors, but the residential portions have crumbled and fallen away, the castle was built by Lormack McCarthy, prince of Dcs m nd, who ruled all of Ireland south of Cork, in 1173.

The famous Blarney stone is as well known as the King of England and the superstition is that whoever kisses it becomes instantly endowed with wonderful persuasion of speech But very few people and only th most daring athletes have ever trltd the experiment. The miraculous stone Is the sill of a window, which projects from the main wall near the top of the tower. As it is eight or ten Inches below the level of th floor and across an open space of about twenty four inches, it is not only difficult, but dangerous to at tempt to reach it.

The whole family died. Then across the street, in the home of a poor laborer, who was absent all the week, returning only on Saturday to bring his scanty earnings, the disease next began. The wife felt herself attacked in the night by the fever. When morning dawneJ she was worse, and before night the plagued spot showed itself, She remembered the terrible fate of her neighbor. She knew she must die, but, as she looked at her dear boys, she lesolved not to communicate death to them. She therefore lock ed the children in the room and God himself for it is nothing less snitched the bedclothes, fearing than this and should put a seal up on lips that are wont to speak they were already Impregnated with the dreadful germs, and with them slightingly ot women. is It recorded left the house. 1 She even denied I Gome when Iw-y- homejiroperty Iruured r It hould ou may lw next Ut bum out. eiy.vt.-il- , In your Take Out a Small Fire Insurance Policy Now and be Safe !

Plain words should be spoken on this point, for the evil is a general one and deep rooted. It young men are sometimes thrown into the society of the thoughtless, they have no more right to measure oth er women by what they see of them than they would have to estimate the character of honest and respect able citizens by the developments of crime in out police courts.
