iutHOllI CONGRESS has reached the point where it is onlv waiting a good opportunity to take a hand in the coal difficulty and from the present appearances if there is a Congreseional move now it will be in the direction of compulsory ar bitration that will bear harder on the miners that it will on the operator The statement of President Dolan InJ rreMed a great deal df comment at the Capiiol and iti opens the questions of whether the labor unions have not gone so far that soire federal curb is needed The public is coming round to the point where it feels it has a few rights that it would like to have re spected Coal is one of the most absolute necessities of life in the U S any where down theborders the Gulf The consumer evetyone hut the man on a salary is the one who feels the strain most He has seen his coal bill double in past six years and now to be threatened with a second national strike when he has not vet gotten over the smart of his two years old experience comes ptetty near making the longsuffering American mad There is little excuse to be made for the operators or for the coal carrying railroads They have put their screws on the public as tight they dared But now that the miners claim the tight to throw the whole country into the bitterest sort of suffering because as Mr Do Ian says some forgotten community of miners in Michan or Nova Scotia cannot settle a local gnev ance it is a little too much Con gress hopes to do something toward curbing the coal carrying roads in the Rate Bill now before Congress But that will be a small step Vhat is more than possibility is a move to break the back of the fast or ganization in the coal business President Dolan admits that the miners have secured an advance of 100 per cent in the six years andre duced their hours at the same time And neither are the mine owners suffering any gl eat hardship for lack of piiuit in theiJ properties The householder has fcd them both fat and the householder who Oalso votes is ready to back any action of Congress be it compulsory arbitration confiscation or shot gun supervision of both mines and min eis There is no move too drastic for the average citizen to endorse when it comes to keeping peace in the coal world And Congress would welcome the necessity for making a move if the present dis cussion came to a ruptureEx A strong effort is being made by certain Legislators to put Casey county in the Eighth district the final result of which would mean kick Rockcastle in the Eleventh Mr Alverson of Lincoln county the father of the bill is on record as having said that such was the intentions Vhat is to be gained by kicking one Republican county out to put another in we cannot understand and just such legisla tion is today largely the cause of the great fall off in the Democratic strength of the State It is true that Rockcastle is the only county in the Eighth which always gives a Republican majority and it is equally as true that she has over a thousand Denipcrarts who are as loyal as ever lived To be kicked into the Eleventh by the party of their own choice where there will be neither hope nOr re ward would be a thrust which not even the most di din

in the lght of a patron saint Miss Addams is the founder and present chief moving spirit of Hull Bouse Chicago the greatest social set tiement ever known in this country Hull House is not really one house tat a series of buildings which have dwellinghichKiss Addams for the accommodation sff the citys working people The set tlement includes a museum theatre a restaurant and various other buildings which are for the sole use of people to whom lifes joys are overbalanced by ores and sorrows Hall Caine the famous author has zid that Hull House is the most corn PATRON OF HULL jiete social settlement in the world end if this be so it is a fitting monu ment to the generous heart sterling character and unbounded sympathy of Us founder Miss Jane Addams Miss Addams is now fortyfive years tld She was born in edarville Ill After graduating at a well known col lege she followed the example of her other young women friends and lived a life of and pleasure She spent ler time mostly in reading and travel and gradually the thought came to ker bat she was absolutely without a pur pose in life She saw the poor around ler got to know their cares and wor lies and cast about for a means by which she could do them some good She decided to become a physician and 1odk a years course in a Philadelphia college At the end of that time she was compelled to rest and so went abroad to study social conditions The result of her observations was her return to America and the immediate establishment of a social settlement in Chicago Hull House is situated right in the leart of Chicagos poor in Halstead street It came to Miss Addams through Miss Helen Culver a niece of its builder and the for whom the settlement is now named It had been built by its owner years ago for his wn home and in belief that the city would grow that way It did grow that way and became one of the most congested sections of Chicago but was peopled by all nations and of a cf humanity unused to the fine usages of life unused to social restrictions and wholly without pale of refined society When Miss Culver learned intended mIllHousewhich was once to have been a rich mans home the settlement has extend ed into a block of buildings and here is the genuinely happy home of Chi cagos poor One of the adjuncts of the settlement is the Club an organization of self supporting young women who are making an effort to live up to the ideal offered them in the personality of their benefactor The club is directly under the supervision of Miss Addams and every employe of the house ad In fact every one of the settlement is responsible personally to her Miss Addams believes in the people trusts them and looks to them for the proper disposition of their duties and lives and in this way she has come nearer their hearts nearer their confidences and nearer making them see the big side of life rather than the one to which their eyes might other wise often turn She is always to be found by the lowliest ready to listen to an appeal for help ready to give each and every one her strength and support and as ready to see and help a stranger as the oldest habitue of the settlement Jane Addams occupies a peculiar position in public eye She has no religious creed or if she has she does thrust it on her people All sorts of doctrines are preached in Hull House but Miss Addams permits this through the fact that her generosity of spirit is big enough to allow every one his own opinion She is regarded with the highest esteem by officials of the city and is frequently asked to ad dress large meetings When she does this she is listened to with strict at tention Miss Addams is a brilliant example of a woman who having all in life has not permitted herself to be satis fied with her lot while others have suffered She has devoted time money and all the energy in her big self to the uplifting of the lowly to the spiritual welfare of the poor when that could be done through kindness alone and to the bodily comfort and enjoy ment of these people by giving them every means within her power to for THE SAINT HOUSE ease man the class the Jane their the not get when it is possible that they are poor uneducated and socially lacking according to the standards of the world Napoleon Napoleon going about like a raging lion seeking whom he might devQur Sir Conan Doyle considers Napoleon as perhaps the most wonderful man who ever lived He writes that what strikes him most frcibly is the Jack of finality in his character When one decides that he is a com plete villain he reads of some noble trait al then loses his admiration in some act of incredible meanness But here was a youj man of thirty years with no social advan tages very little edvaition his family poverty striken entering a room in company with Kings each and every one jealous of any atten tions shown by him to any one of them He must have had some private charm for his intimate friends loved and worshipped him and withal he was the most amazing and talented liar that ever lived and one who told the truth only to himself An originator of great schemes that seemed fantastic and Impossible his ir 4esty of detail brought success where another man would have failed With Kingly Courage- In Sweden a remarkable story Isi told of King Oscars courage and re solutionThe narrative recounts that a soldier a man of immense stature while lying under sentence of death secured along knife and defied anyone to enter his cell- On hearing of the circumstances the King drove at once to the prison and disregarding the warning of the officials entered the mans cell alone and unarmed locked the door behind him and then reasoned ith the convictIIt would have been a remarkable In terview even if the King had taken a pardon to the convict But far this he actually explained to the fromI demned man why he had reject any appeal for mercy yet he so worked on the mans feelings that when with a farewell handshake the King left him he was totally subdued and ready to meet his fate the next morning 1IlrQ a soldier ATTAINS TO FAME AN OBSCURE NEW YORK LAWYER RISES TO POWERFUL AND COMMANDING POSITION Beginning With Gas ProbingsCharles E Hughes Develops into Dominat ing Factor in Great Insurance In vestigations In the history of the stage it bas happened more than once that an actor not thought to be a star but with sound qualities and training has accepted a part rejected by others and by careful study and interpretation made it the most interesting portion of the play and achieved distinction as the reward of his labors And now before the country today there is an instance going to show that fortune for such fidelity is not confined to the stage legislaturemethods of the gas companion of Greater New York and the committee appointed for the work had some trouble in its search for a legal adviser and examiner of witnesses The task for some reason did not appeal to the prominent members of the bar who we approached and the choice finally fell on a man comparatively un toIstriking force and performed his duties so well he earned the applause of the whole State Probes Insurance When the legislative inquiry into the New York insurance irregularities was ordered the committee decided upon legal counsel and again difficulty was encoutered in securing it The man who had so satisfactorily served the gas committee was traveling in Eu rope and at the moment could not be reached with an offer The offer went begging for a few days until at last a Brooklyn lawyer accepted Upon his suggestion however the man abroad who was really desired Was cabled on the subject and engaged to assist in the work After the work began this assistant virtually became the load ing counsel and conducted the inves tigation which was of national inter est in a way to merit and receive national applause He has become one of the most conspicuous figures of today Man of the Hour And so Mr Charles E Hughes is the subject of no little speculation The obscure New York lawyer of the other day is a powerful man of this day He is mentioned for both political and business honors He might have been the Republican candidate for mayor in the recent municipal campaign and had he been might likely have swept the city He is now mentioned for his partys leadership in next years gubernatorial campaign He is likewise suggested for the presidency of the Mutual Life Insurance Company And should he decline preferment in both of these lines and decide to stick to his profession he is assured of a vast increase over the practice than he enjoyed before All of which goes to show that it pays to do whatever you set out to do with all your heart and mind The American Spoke First The American in the corner of the English firstclass carriage insisted on lighting his cigar The indignant Brit isher in the other corner protested but protested in vain At the next sta tion he hailed the guard with hostile intent but the cool American was too quick for him Guard he drawled I think youll find that this party here is traveling with a thirdclass ticket on him Investigation proved him to be right and the indignant Britisher was triumphantly ejected 4 spectator of the little scene asked the American how he knew about that ticket Well explained the imper turbable stranger the corner was sticking out of his pocket

of Horticulture specified but not to exceed a certain particularimprovement has changed such bills so they appro priate a fixed amount This system is regarded by the members of the House committeeexpenditure and the members of the committee will refuse to accept such a bill hereafter and purpose forcing the Senate to indorse measures which will encourage the completion of work at the

clerks Then add to these the constant possibility of being knocked into or for life in a wreckIIthe environment for a Lomestic man nor for him who has passed the top of the hill of life and is jogging

greater accuracy Uncle Sam is proud of the person nel of this expert force and takes every precaution for their safety and comfort Their hours are fixed and overtime is required only in cases of absolute necessity A Traveling Postoffice A railway mu car is technically an R PO or Hallway Post Office It runs between stated points receiving and distributing mail through post offices along the line It is a govern ment post office on wheels and is United States territory though owned by the railroad It is as well built arid as completely equipped for its purpose as a Pullman Iron racks for mail sacks extend along each side Above are tiers of open boxes and pig eon holes Work tables sl on the racks There is neither plush nor mahogany It is built for work and Is the abode of workers Let us imagine that this car is the R PO leaving Pittsburg Pa for Cleveland Ohio over the Pennsylva nia road The Pittsburg city post office delivers to the car mail for points east of Cleveland called local mail and through mail for Cleveland and points west The train rushes out of Pittsburg The whistle blows for a station No stop here A helper opens a side door swings out the mail catcher and pieks up a mail sack from a crane by the track Now the work begins This sack contains mail from the station just passed Some of It Is for the next office some for Cleveland some for the for west The mail Is dumped on a table and a clerk pounces on it like a wolf on a Iamb He tosses letters In all directions He throws papers and pack ages hither and yon this way and that as fast as an expert ard player can distribute a deck But every piece of mall finds its mark in a particularI rack or box Thn cclt and labeled but the labels are unneces sary his quick eye catches only the name of the office Ignoring that of the addressee Though the work p highdegreelous accuracy less than two per cent of errors In the work of the whole force for a given year The whistle blows for another wayI station The door is opened a thrown off and the catcher yanks another sack about for distribution And so it goes without cessation The whole scheme Is so arranged tatthere Is just time working witu the utmost

danger is always present Yet in ten years past but 96 clerks have been killed on the roadan average of ten a year with a force numbering up to 11000 The legal representative each clerk so killed receives 1000 from the government Arrangements are contemplated for payment of an annuity to every clerk permanently disabled In line of duty The mall car Is usually next the tender and runs a greater risk In ac cidents than a passenger car But the position Is sometimes advantageous An instance is cited of a peculiar wreck near Poughkeepsie N fhe train was crossing a bridge when the engineer saw that the draw why open His was such that he could not stop But ho WM a quick thinker Reversing the for tr moment be suddenly threw the throt tie wide The comparatively light tender and mail car responded instant ly while the heavy baggage and passenger coaches constituted a drag that broke the coupling Relieved ot this burden the engine t nder and mail car shot ahead and leaped the

amiable story to the effect that when bees are taken to Australia they learn in a single year the uselessness of stor ing honey for a winter that newer comes and that they thereafter aban r r INTERIOR OF don their dearbought fame as models of industry and hilariously devote to sport or idleness all of their time ex cept just enough in each day to satisfy that days hunger No doubt this tale will shock and grieve a large number of estimable people but for our own part says the Times it very consider ably increases such little affection as we previously had for these tiresomely virtuous fowl

while bees are brave enough they are unable to strike more than a single blow against any of their more dangerous foes dying themselves as a result of it while the foes after howling with pain for a bit calm down and hunt more honey It is almost incredible therefore that a creature incapable of seeing the futility of work carried to an absurd extreme only for the profit of human robbers should be able so quickly to draw an inference from the failure of winter to appear when expected Almost is not quite however and we too can believe what we want to believe So we will not question the story

States during the last year more than 150 million dollars worth was sugar Sugar formed by far the largest single item in this larg est importation whicn the United States has ever made in any single yearThe tited States is increasing steadily and rapidly its consumption of sugar The sugar producers at home are increasing their output of both cane and beet sugar but even their rapid increase in production Is not keeping pace with the increasing home demand and as a consequence the quantity of sugar brought into the country increases from year to year It has doubled in the last twenty years while population meantime increased but 50 per cent The annual average importation during the fiveyear period ending with 1885 was 1031149 tons and ding the fiveyear period ending with 1905 tho annual average was 2106 043 tons despite the fact that the sugar production at home had grown from 176035 tons in 1885 to approximately 600000 tons in 1905 The United States is the largest sugarconsuming country in the world though the per capita consumption in this country is not as great as in the United Kingdom The total consump A MAIL CAR tion in 1904 aggregated 2707000 tons making an average consumption for each individual for the year of about 75 pounds During the half century prior to 1890 beet sugar formed a small proportion of the worlds sugar production the percentage which beets supplied of the worlds sugar product being in 1840 but 43 per cent in 1850 143 per cent in 1890 637 per cent while 1900 showed for beets the highest propor tion in the worlds production of sugar 677

in line unconsciously moved n unisoi with the martial music The g iris over on the porch and several ydung officers who had joined them swayed in time to the infectious wishedlsecretlya the band had marched past the commanding officers quarters it took up its regular position a short distance from the guard and began Its morning program- I always love to have Mr Bates on duty Helen Farnham said He takes such a long time to mount the guard and the band has loads of time to play Just think hos going to the Philippines Katherino Markham a pretty little blonde protested We were just getting him so well trained too Well somebody else will have to con sent to mount slowly or woll never have more than two pieces in the morning Say Margery Helen added What do you think of the orders Margery Keene looked up from her tenibroiclery rather nonchalantly She hadnt been watching and hadnt really MARGERY STOOD WATCHING SOLDIER heard a word the girls had said until Katherine mentioned the Philippines Theres one good thing about it eaid Margery It will only take one officer away from the post and that ought to be some consolation Anybody would think you didnt care at all ventured Katherine and all time you know youre just dying to goNow Katherine youre getting foolish Margery answered good natured ly You know I like Mr Bates awfully well but just because Ive danced with him a few times thats no sign that I shall pine away when hes gone Oh no I Katherine grimaced ana Bven Margery joined in the laugh Lieutenant Bates only halt way Hpvra the line and the were cans ious of the closest scrutiny of their guns Each was examined with the Utmost care but only the young officers and his friends over on the porch knew that he killing time in order that the band cnuld play longer When the lit le ceremony over the men were dismissed and to the rollicking strains of a Sousa march the musicians filed to their quarters Bates crossed the parade and joined the group at the To think you ColonelsIthe Philippines erine We only and just imagine you have to go to morrowYou see Miss Katherine what It means to be a soldier Ive never been to the front and theres nothing to keep me here so I think Im pretty luckyNothing to keep you here Helen Farnham exclaimed Well of all things And this old army post flood ed with girls Mr Bates youre dis missedNow really Miss Farnham I thought I lucky when I got my orders laughed Bates but if I thought there were the slightest chance for me here I might be disloyal to colors and condemn orders to the bow bows The trouble here is that there are too many of us and not enough of you 0 you fake laughed Helen During guard mount Margery Keene had sat composedly in a ro king chair embroidering When nobody looking she would steal a look at Bates but unfortunately for that young mans peace of mind he too far off to see Now that he had joined the young people oa the porch Margery paid the gr j tIlplf TlIl1 strictest attention to Mr Somers who was telling her a story in which she wasnt the least bit interested Margery played her little game well but when Bates left with the other officers without as much as coming to her to be told she was sorry he had been ordered offMargery was not only annoyed but angry with herself for caringNobody in the merry little group knew that two nights before Bates had again been refused by Margery Nobody knew so well as Margery herself that he had made up his mind never to ask her again But that all before his orders camebefore the prospect of the great Pacific stretching itself between him and her had presented it self However his manner showed no change from the other night when he seemed to think that ono No was sufficient tossed his head in the air gave her a curt Good night and left Didnt every girl want to be told over and over again that she was the most adorable creature in the world Margery whispered to herself She had now made up her mind that she would stick to her No if it killed her Furthermore when he came to say goodbye she would show him that he not the only soldier in the worldLieutenant Bates was one of the youngest and most popular officers in the army The prospect of active service after months of barrack duty was A ON THE REAP CAR the was men was the was was my was was was was alluring and his heart beat faster every time the thought came to him that probably here at last was an op portunity for him to distinguish him self at the front Only one thing marred his enthusiasm and that was Margery Ifs buts and girls How they have made history So all of that last day passed In the evening some of the young people came over to Major Keenes but Bates failed to appear Busy packing said Somers when somebody asked for him Well it seems to me if I were In his place and were the only officer ordered off Id come around and get my self lionized and Katherine Markham looked very much disgusted Margery banged the piano until her fingers nearly dropped off Three times Bates fairly ran past the Majors that he might not yield to the temptation to go in But the hours wore away and when the new day dawned Margery awaken ed a very unhappy but determined young person When Lieutenant Bates began his round of farewell calls Margery saw him from her window overlooking the parade ground Her little head went back in defiance and her batteries were ready to be turned on the enemy at his approach When he comes in But that was just what he failed to do for on meeting her father Major Ke ne at the gate the two officers proceeded down the row together Stung to the quick by his manifest avoidance of her Margery determined to go with the others to see the boys off and to give Mr Bates the nicest coldest goodbye he ever got Other officers were to join the regiment at the train and as they were all her friends she determined to take advantage of this last opportunity So rber to the Colonels Margery trooped an hour later herIbuckle on her belt The train was made up and the en gineer waited the sisrnal to start From every window a soldier head protruded for the men had been ordered aboard immediately upon their arrival at the yardsMother wife sister and sweetheart multiplied Into a throng swarmed up and down the platform eacn m search of a particular head The post band banged away at popular tunes as a farewell to the boysas bright jolly and happy a lot as ever donned the khaki The men who Sad received orders for the Philippines were lording it over their companions who by ruling of the Department were compelled to wait for later orders Every time a stayathome hove in sight he was made the target for a volley of chaff about his status as a son of Mars Hi there Billy called out a tousled headed soldier from one of the windows to another strolling by Theyll never send you to the Islands The Pinos would ketch you fust thingTheyll never ketch rou if you kin run fast enough said Billy Three cheers for Lootnant Bates somebody howled as the tall young of ficer hurried past A flush rose to the roots of his hair when he touched his campaign hat in acknowledgment of the three lusty cheers that rang through the yard Bates was popular with his men and his detail had much to do with their good nature in leaving for the Philippines Everything was in confusion Shouts of Goodbye mingled with the laugh ter and tears from many hearts Of ficers hurried here and there getting things in readiness to start and when the young people from the post el bowed their way through the crowd Bates was nowhere to be found He failed to materialize as starting time drew near and it was decided to institute a search for him Margery was not the only post girl who had been casting sheeps eyes at the young officer and while she absolutely refused to move saying she would wait for them to return she could not view Jbe other girls solicitude vith composure You people go ahead said Mar gery and Ill stay here Im absolutely so tired I cant go another step 0 dont be unsociable Margery come on they urged but Margery was obdurate Ill go over there with Mrs Brooks and Captain Stiles she said and then you can fl4d me when you come back All right they said and off they wentInstead of seeking Mrs Brooks and Captain Stiles Margery stayed just where they had left her and there she was when Bates dodging here and there through the crowd almost knocked her down- I beg your pardon MissMargery- he said looking about her In evident confusion Pardon my awkwardness but where are the folks Ive been looking all over for them Theyre looking for you too said Margery I was just going Going Where said Bates you were going to wait and see the fellows off Wen Ive said goodbye to all of them but youso now I guessIll TO and a little hand fluttered out to him He took it and as he raised his Lig campaign hat with the other Bates was at a loss just what to say Is that all he pleaded What have I done that you arc not going to wish me a safe return- I do though Margery said Well that helps Bates said lame ly because when a fellow is thou sands of miles away fromfrom everybody its good to know thatereverybody will be glad to see him each Im afraid I hurt you the other night Margery blurted out forget ting all her resolutions of indifference But I didnt mean to she added hastilyIm sure of that the young officer said Ho was so near and his very near ness made her deliriously happy Bates saw the others returning from their search for him and his last hance slipping away His determina tion to never again speak to Margery of love took flight and he began another hasty plea When she showed no sign of even interrupting him he told it all over again and begged that she would not send him away without at least one word of encouragement Ive been fighting so hard to make myself believe I didnt care but It wont do Margery Its so hard to go away from you dear andbut here I am saying the whole blooming thing againWell you mean it Margery poutedMean it Mean it little girl I mean it so much that I You awful man chimed in one of the girls as the post crowd came up the trains about to go and we havent a minute to talk to you Im mighty sorry said Bates 6but Ive been busy How busy asked one of the party and everybody looked at Margery Youd better get aboard Bates said young Somers one of the officers left behind Shes about to go Take care of yourself old nan and dont get the fever- Lieutenant Bates had eyes only for one Heedless of everybody and every thing he took Margery in his arms and she clung to him for one brief happy moment Amid the cheers from hun dreds of throats Bates leaped on the rear platform of the last car as the train moved swiftly out of the yards The bell clanged hats and handker chiefs were waved vigorously and the post band burst forth with the stirring strains of The Girl I Left Behind MeMargery stood with both hands pressed convulsively to her lips watch lug a soldier form on the rear

which increase and multiply without hinderance but snakebites are very rare Treated so well the reptiles become docile t nd harmless and children play fearlessly in the groves where the snakes abound When however as sometimes hap pens the neighborhood of a shrine be comes so overrun with reptiles that there is danger of treading on them the surplus snakes are reverently removed by the priests to

the succeeding crop is greatly diminished in volume and deter iorated in quality so that if applied to the country as a whole the loss would be enormousThe magnitude of the American seed business is little appreciated said a prominent seed dealer in describing the carloads of field and garden seeds which he handles each spring The producing capacity of the seeds quickly deteriorates in most instances and the most successful farmers buy large quan tities of seeds The farmer is a somewhat cautious individual and although he buys on an average double the amount of seeds he did ten ago be has not in every instance reached the point where he recognizes that the greatest economy lies in getting the best and patronizing only those houses whose reputation forbids them to sell poor and adulterated seeds Seeds Apt to Retrograde The deterioration in many seeds is Very marked and large seedmen go to treat lengths to produce the best pos sible seed and to have various establishments in different parts of the country where the conditions arc the best for production It is not possible that the best results can be attained in produc ing a great number of seeds on any one farm or in any one locality however favored The soil and climate which may be the best adapted for producing cne kind of seed may result only in very inferior seed from some other kind Courtesy A J Fitters Department of Agriculture of plant So that seeds as they are handled by the big seedsmen are gath ered in by them from all parts of the country from Maine to California In the latter state some of the vastest seed fields of the world are found where the eye ranges over unbroken rows miles in extent at least as far as the eye can reach If all this industry should cease gardenerbecamecrop on the seeds which he would him shrinkageinwould amount to tens of millions of dollars In the Olden TimesI eachfarmerneighborsproductionthe support of the family and the farm supplied practically all the necessities and even the luxuries of life UnitedStatesby David Landreth the originator of wasbefore cityfover 250000 acres including land in probably every state in the Union are now devoted solely to growing seed crops and some of the largest growers plant annually as high as 2eoo acres Get Good Clover Seed The advantage of securing good germinating seed is manifest Take for instance clover seed which is sown on wheatstubble in the spring It is al ways possible to secure it at 50 cents or 100 per bushel below the market price reputableseedsmenWhat It must be considered a foregone con clusion that such seed is poor worth even less than the reduced price at which it is offered The land has been prepared for pasture or hay some of the fertilizer used on the wheat crop still remaining in the soil for the use of the clover and timothy and the grass and clover seed is sown to become the de pendence of the farmer for his hay crop He buys cheap seed SO 40 50 or 6b per cent of it is an adulteration of seed which has been killed or is old deador weak clover seed The re mainder is good fresh seed If he buys this seed likely putting off purchase until the eleventh hour and uses it qualitiesstand In other words half his land AMERICAN SEED GROWING Cheap Seeds the Most Expensive GUY ELLIOTT MITCHELL lies idle and he curses his luckwhich has thus shown itself against him whereas the fault was his own and he was simply penny wise and pound can be said of many different kinds ef seed Or suppose he buys expensive early cabbage or radish seedit is an easy matter for the unscrupulous dealer to mix this seed half and half with very cheap late cabbage or radish seeds pre viously killed so that they will not come untrue to name and unless the buyer is particularly observant it may never occur to him that he has been buncoedTricks of Some Dealers Another method of defrauding the seed buyer practiced by cheap seedsmen who never expect to do business a sec ond time with the customer is to sell him outright the cheap seeds of some plant such as a muskmelon for instance under a label of some new or high priced variety He puts ina hard sea sons work trying to raise good musk melons and at the end he finds he has a heterogeneous collection of inferior sorts Still another practice which the reputable seedsmen will not counten ance is to sell seeds which may be true germinatebuttmple of this was noticed by the writer in the Colorado muskmelon fields The Rocky Ford cantaloupes had for some years attained a countrywide fame through their sweetness and fine flavor They were shipped all over the United States Then came a great demand for A Field ff Seed- Lettuce Parsnip Growing For Seed- California Scenes Rocky Ford seed At the end of the cantaloupe season various individuals RockyFordboweling immature and frosted canta loupes for their seed This seed it is true was genuine Rocky Ford canta loupe seed and it would probably ger minate 95 or 98 per cent but it is ob vious its sale as firstclass seed was an imposition Nevertheless thousands of packages were annually foisted upon buyersSo are going to buy seed and buying seed to a eater or less extent is advisable not tosay necessary it becomes a foregone conclusion that it pays to buy good seed and therefore to know from whom you are buying The Government Seed Business The Agricultural Department is busier than usual sending out millions of pack ages of free seeds for Congressmen It should be understood that this free seed theSecretaryof hisbut is a Congressional affair pure andsimple In every session there is one or more bills introduced abolishing what has been termed by more than one Congressman the free seed farce and speeches have been made annually de riding the practice showing it is unnecessary and unprofitable and a waste of public money yet when It comes to voting for a measure which = r abolishes a system whereby the Con gressmen who wants to keep in touch with his constituents has an opportunity to mail out a little package of garden seeds to his entire list of voters he cheerfully votes against the measure and insteadvotes for an appropriation of over a quarter ofa million of dollars a year for free garden and flower seeds If somebody would introduce a bill even with urejlshould SEED LETTUCE AND plants as may be of real value to the farmer in a Congressional district new and improvedvarieties even though only one package could be sent out where now a score or two are sent the expenditure would be defensible This would be building up our agriculture and there would be cases where the entire agricultural output would be changed greatly to the advantage of the farm The Secretary is in fact employing this idea as far as he is left any discretion in the matter of seed distribution He is allowed by Congress a small appropriation of this free seed money and where his explorers in the broughtinlieved will be an improvement on those already grown by American farmers he sends these out in sufficient amount to admit of a rational test by a farmer Time to Abolish the System As it is now carried out the free seed distribution should be stopped and the work of supplying the ordinary farm and garden seeds the results of which are known to everybody should be left to the regular seedmen The seed business of the United States is one of great magnitude While there are of course unscrupulous and fake seed houses who do not hesitate to adulterate the seeds they supply the re putable firms take great care in seeing that their seeds are not only fresh with good germinating powers but true to name The oldfashioned way was for each grower to save his own seed but in many of our principal crops it is found that the seeds grown in certain lo calities produce heavier yields andwhile if the planting is done a little out of the original habitat of the plant the first crop may not appreciably deteriorate the second year the crop from that seed willshow a marked falling off in yield It is for this reason that some of the wisest farmers and planters send regu larly considerable distances for seed The seed catalogues always carry a number of pages of novelties and new varieties which are described in an ex tremely attractive form It is well enough to try these novelties but it is good advice to consider them as such and have the main crop to fall back upon from the standard or welltried varieties which have stood the test of years An examination of many of the seeds ofcommon vegetable and forage re veals the fact that an immense amount of poor seed is sold to American farm ers and gardeners Farmers as a rule are responsible for this condition since as has been said many of them buy the cheapest seed in the market and trust entirely to luck for it to produce the entire crop Sum seed is dear at any price and is withal one of the principal source of the hosts of bed weeds which are to be seen upon many farms For the last few years there has been a constantly increasing outcry against t AN OCEAN OF SWEET PEAS Flower Seed Growing is an Extensive Industry that the seeds sold by unscrupulous dealers and with ita demand fer legislation Congress and a few states have passed laws regulating the trade in seeds The Secretary of Agriculture under an Act of Congress has authority to and does purchase in
