thorough investigation The jailer Owen V Jarrett bas made a special effort since his incumbency to at least keep the jail respectable but owing to the horrible arraingment which exists it is almost an impos sibility Totally without any of the modern conveniences which a jail should have and a very poorly arranged building too the quarters furnished the prisoners are very uncomfortable and the jailer censured and criticised for things nun voidable en his his part One of the great needs is water works and sewerage which could be installed at a very reasonable cost There are many changes eeded in fact an entire renovation of the whole buildings is neccessarry but that we cannot hope for However with the additions above mention ed the prisoners incarcerated can at least have respectable quarters Only those who arefully advised up on this matter can fully appreciate the situation and we want to add that no officer in charge is in the least responsible for the conditions which exist We trust that the grand jury will carefully investigate and recommend at least a few of the necessary improvements POLITICS AND POLITICIANS Official announcement was made by Chief Justice

Eighth Kentucky District It is saying little to state that the publication of this news will Ting unfeign ed joy to Mr Millers friends the onghout the State whose name is legion and who hae been urging him for months to make this race His entry will indeed mean another Richmond in the field and the contest will assume an interesting and exciting attitude from this time forward to itsfinishOf the sons of the Bluegrass State now in the public eye none is more fitted for the honor to which lie aspires than popular brainy eloquent Dick Miller This opinion is not only our own but is con curred in by those of eminence and renown He is the logical candi date from this district as there is no other young man in this section of his qualifications who has won the prominence and honors which have come to him He is of the type wuich made Kentucky famous in the halls of Congress years ago and it should be an honor to the people to stnd to Washington one who will so ably represent them In the first place he is a gentleman by instinct breeding and edu cation Of rare social charm he binds his friends to him by his cordial friendly ways No stranger ever met him without remembering him to lasting advantage and with his friends he wears equally well as all grow more attached to him with the development of the remarkable attain ments which he possesses Secondly he has brains gitts and talents of an unusually gig order And then his eloquence is proverbial and he is conceded by all to be the first orator in Kentucky Born and reared in Madison county he is a graduate both of Cen tral University and Yale At the former school he held the position of Dean of the Law Department from 1897 to the consolidation of the school with Centre College of Danville In 1904 he was Democratic County Chairman of this county and was made a member of the State Central Committee He served two terms in the State Legislature and his ca reer since his entrance to that honorable body has been history with whichall are familiar Especially at the last session did he loom like a star on the horizon of Kentucky politics The papers were full of him and his remarkable passinghe advocated the passage of a measure requiring an accounting of the in surance companies to the proper authorities and though stating that he had been threatened with political extinction if he took this action he yet threw down the gage of battle and carried all before him in a brilli ant effort that will ever he remembered This is the kind of man that Madison offers as her candidate He is one of those whom destiny marks for her own and who is horn for distinction Ifsent to Congress this district will be represented it has not been for years Though his party is in the minority Mr Millet will be known and recognized and his influence felt It was his type that gain ed for Kentucky the reputation of The Silver Tongued The fame the Clay and Breckinridge clustered around the Bluegras will be but brightenedwhen enchanced by the eloquent words the clean life and Congressmanfrom ger who is about fortyfive years of age and popular but not so formidable a man as Senator Black burn The latter is and always was popular in the State and would probablv have been elected had he got into the fight in the State In stead he relied on his friends and the people of Kentucky to support him They failed to do so and he was defeatedIn it is not as it used to be once a man could dependup on his record and remain away and attend to dis duties at the Capitol now he must be ou deck throtih the whole fight

farm ers of the West and the South pleaded with the Government for relief They asked that the United States Treasury lend them money at the same rate of interest that the Government paid on its bonds To secure the loan they offered to givea mortgage on their lands and to deposit warehouse recipts for cotton wheat and corn liThe proposition of the farmers was rejected with a burst ofridi cule and wrath which even now seems incredible liThe whisky dealers were securing a loan of many millions of dol lars annually from the Govern ment at five per cent interest That is to say by depositing the whisky with the Government they could use in their business for three years at five per cent interest If CIJIlES RfH t ISII LU nSL lit His C I- iNEUR L h t and KiDriEY TRrDUBLE JD80PS taken internally

SECTION HOUSE FOR FREE SEEDS LOWER BRANCH OF NATIONAL LEGISLATURE PASSES THIS APPROPRIATION Members of Congress Haze Op ponents of Free SeedsConfusion Precedes Final Vote on BiUAgri cultural Oratory When the House of Representatives took up the agricultural appropriation bill quite a discussion arose over the elimination of the usual free seed item by the committee on agriculture The House gave to the country during the days of debate a spectacle that else where than on the floor of that parlia mentary body would have been known as rough house There was a great tendency to haze members when they spoke in defense of the action of the committee Much was said about the attempt to strike down the hardworking farmer and take from him that helping hand in the shape of free seeds which had been held out to him for so many yearsNone of the advocates of free seeds emphasized the fact that the total val ue of the package containing five small packets which forms the quota sent to each farmer cost the govern ment 1 Vi cents and that each member had the enormous sum of 150 worth of these seeds to distribute among his entire constituency The arguments advanced sought to prove that the withdrawal of this subsidy of less than 2 cents to each farmer would drive the entire agricultural voting strength of the country into bankruptcy ELOQUENCE ON TAP Some of the speeches made will go rolling down the corridors of time as specimens of that matchless elo quence always on tap in the House of Representatives when a great national issue is up for consideration- Mr Henry of Connecticut submit ted innumerable letters from his con stituents and from organized granges urging the abolishment of the freeseed practice Mr Mondell of Wyoming delivered himself of a humorous speech in which he poked fun at the Department Mr Burleson of Texas opposed free seeds because he did not believe the intelligent farmers cf the country expected the government to aid them in uieir business Farmers under all circumstances he said had supported the government and never expected the government to support Burleson paid his respects rather sarcastically to certain mem bers who advocated free seeds on the floor and then in the cloak rooms sneered at the Reubens and hay seeds who demanded them Mr Bur Buried Robert Where leson challenged anybody to show a organIizedspecies of graft Mr Mondell held the attention of the House until he had concluded and his speech was the one cool dispassionate episode of the day The question is said he Shall we to en dear ourselves to the hearts of our constituents distributing among them a few packages annually of seeds of unknown vintage and heredity of the fragrant onion the rutabaga and the humble but glorious the kind that mother used to makepie promoting pumpkin or shall we with Spartan selfdenial forego this ancient and potent promoter of our claims to statesmanship- Mr Mondell concluded by convulsing the House with a famous poem writ ten the poet lariat of State on the subject under discussion by HouseWhen Cocks the representative of President Roosevelts district on Long Island began to denounce the freeseed evil he soon had

Senate as long as he lives Yet they are preparing to hold an election to decide upon his successor The rea son is that when Senator Pettus pres ent term expires in 1909 he will be 88 years old and the

years of another term He is candidate for reelection on the platform A man is as young as he feels Senator Pettus had reached the time for chloroforming according to the socalled Osler doctrine back in 63 about the time he was performing deeds of daring in defense of Vicks burg fighting with the Confederate army It seems that the situation had become desperate volunteers were called for a forlorn

The Best Way to Get Brooms Was to Beg tbe Money and Buy Them A veteran of the civil war in com menting on the socalled Panama circumlocution office gave some amus ing reminiscences of the working of 1861iNew York regiment and had been detailed to assist in handling a bunch of recruits he said At the end of the first week I discovered that we were out of brooms and when I reported the matter to the lieutenant he told me to stop off at the ordnance store when I rode in to get the rations MRS M C GOODLETT United Daughters of the I made out a requisition for half a dozen brooms and he signed it When I got to the store I showed it to the sergeant in charge and he laughed at me You must get it signed by the major he said- I finally hunted up the major and he told me that the order must be on army form 790S07K and not on foolscap I told him that my party were recruits and we had no station ery He told me to go or to send to Washington and get some I explained that this would take long and that the brooms would not do any good if we did not get them sooner He then asked if the lieutenant was the com mander of my corps I answered that of course he was not Then I was told he must put under his name For Officer Commanding I went back to camp and after writing out a new requisition had the desired improvement made When I returned to the major he that it was all wrong Instead of saying required for such a regiment and company six brooms I should have concluded it with brooms six I scratched out the line and rewrote it I was then told such corrections were not allowed and a new requsi tion was necessary I drew up a new one and asked if it was all right The major reluctantly said he thought it would pass I then rode back to camp and got it signed Taking it to the ordnance store I was informed that nothing could be issued on such an rder It had to be registered I asked for further particulars and was in formed that this could be done at the majors office Once more I trotted back and eventually a corporal placed my paper under a little stamp and flicted a mark something like a no tarys seal Again I went to the ord nance store Is this all right now I asked Yes answered the sergeant Its a bit irregular but it will do May I have the brooms now You cant have them at all an swered the sergeant severely Why in Heavens name cant I Because he replied as he turned

Unite Various Southern State Organizations Active Worker in Many Charitable InstitutionsFew accomplished more for living patriotism as well as perpetuat ing the memory of the heroic dead of the Southland than Mrs M C Good lett of Nashville Tenn the founder and first president of the United President Confederacy explained carefully discovered solemnly campaign Daughters of the Confederacy No one but a woman of such force of character united to the social training that comes from inheritance through a long line of ancestors together with parliamentary experience could have conceived and firmly established in so short a time a society that now num bers 40000 members Mrs Goodlett is very modest In speaking of this cherished child of hers whose birth has given moan ments and loving tribute to both liv ing and dead Southern heroes Her object in uniting the women of the South was to bring them together to pull shoulder to shoulder with the Confederate veterans in extending all necessary aid to the needy survivors of protecthistoricrecord the part taken by Southern women as well in untiring effort after the war in the reconstruction of the South as in patient endurance of hardship and patriotic devotion dur ing the struggle to honor the memory of those who fell in the service of the Confederate States and to cherish ties of friendship among the members of the society She worked for years striving to organize the United Daughters of the Confederacy before even her own association of which she was presi dent would cooperate with her in call ing a convention and inviting other Daughters of the Confederacy to unite in forming a national association At this time besides being President of the Tennessee Daughters she was a mem ber of the National Conference of Charities and Corrections the rational Prisoners Association and the National Humane Association and was edu cated up to the point where she could see the advantage of consolidating the scattered forces of Confederate work ers who were few and far apart der work with the national associations showed her the great possibilities in concert of action and having time means and social influence to back her in the work she determined to carry out her plans and unflinchingly fought opposition from start to finish The result was that on September 10 1804 the Society of the United Daughters of the Confederacy was organized at Nashville Tenn When the Tenneseeans announced a little over a month ago that they proposed to have a portrait of Mrs Good lett painted and placed In the museum at Richmond Va appeals came at once from the chapter of the States re questing that they might also con tribute toward honoring their founder The requests were complied with and the portrait was unveiled at Nash

Originally was a Conch Shell and a Twist of CottonWestern Ingen uity Devised the Brass Burner and Regulator By EDGAR JAMES BANKS Pli D The Oriental lamp is the same now as it always has beena simple dish of clay stone bronze or glass filled with oil its wick is a rag or a twist of cotton one end of which is immersed in oil and the other rests over the edge of the dish to be lighted This was the lamp not only of ancient Babylonia and Egypt but also of the Hebrews Greeks Romans and all other early peoples Even to this day it is the com mon lamp of Mesopotamia In Saint Sophia the great mosque of Constantinople there is no other method of il luminationThe artificial light with which primitive man brightened the dark ness of night was the camp fire the same fire with which he slightly roasted his meat and warmed his naked body At just what age the idea of lighting by other means first occurred to him is no longer known but the excavations at the Babylonian mound Bismya the ruin of the oldest known city in the world have shown that it was in the very long ago per haps thousands of years before 4500 B CDuring the excavations far beneath n temple which was constructed at that remote date among the ruins of earlier ages there was found a large conch shell about 8 inches in length Its exterior had been worn smooth by constant handling and a section at its opening and half o its elongated valve had been cut away so that it formed a deep dish terminating in a long snout In its interior were slight traces of a thin black deposit At first the use for which this dish was intended was puzzling it was weeks later when it suddenly occurred to me that this seashell was the primitive lamp the ancestor of the great family of time later while excavating at a higher level in the temple refuse heap where the priests of 4500 B C threw the broken and discarded utensils of the temp service there appeared among the dozens of baskets full of polished and cut stone several triangular objects which resembled the conch shell in shape One of ala baster was entire others were frag mentary yet their original forms could be restored They were the lamps which came into vogue after the conch had passed away or when it became so scarce that it was no longer em ployed and stone was substituted in its place Although the conch was dis carded its triangular form remained even to the natural snout for the sup port of the wick which was repro duced in the stone To the early Babylonian the pure almost transparent alabaster lamp was perfect in shape the next step in the evolution was in its decoration In stead of the plain exterior it was engraved with reticulated or curved lines but a more important step in its decoration was when the lampmaker conceived the idea of supporting the wick in a hole at the sharp corner One such example from the Bismya temple refuse heap terminated in a rams head the lighted end of the wick projecting from its mouth After the discovery of the hole for the wick it was an easy step to cover the entire with the exception of an opening in the center to receive the oil Thus the lamp of classical times originated Another from Bis mya is an extremely large marble oval in shape and with vertical walls The snout for its wick is a deep groove extending out about 2 inches and with its support from beneath it the handle of a mod ern dish This lamp held about two quarts of oil and as it was found in the ruins of the temple its unusual size suggests that in the temple as in the synagogues of a later era and in some churches even to the present day a light was kept perpet ually burning Previous to 4000 B C the lamps as well as most dishes and ef fects were of stone after that time objects of burned clay began to ap Before that date lamps were templelaterdwelling houses of the people Of the latter a variety of shapes have ap peared Some are triangular the shape suggested by the conch one is a min iature boat others of a later period identical in shape and size with lampofrowed from the older civilization of Babylonia The common clay lamp of Persia and of the time of Haroun er Raschid assumed a round form with a dent in Its rim for the wick In every respect a miniature frying pan from which the handle Is missing The lamp of modern Bag dad differs from it only in being set upon a pedestal and provided with a handle feJt remained for the lampmaker tof the civilized West who would no longer rest the wick upon the edge of the receptacle for the oil to pass it through the brass arrangement which he called the burner and to provide it with a screw in order that it might be raised or lowered and the essentials of the modern oil lamp were as we have the seashell the lamp of primitive man of over 6000 years ago it would be interesting to know what kind of was burned The olive tree produces the illuminat ing oil of the model i Orient and al though in other parts of the world the fat of animals was used the customs of the East lead us to infer that olive oil was also then employed The wick was doubtless a twist of the cotton which grows wild along the shores ofI te Tigris and the Euphrates Engineering News Old Methods Succeed- It has been claimed that old methods of doing business cannot succeed in this century of ours but a striking example of where old manners maybeNew York Right in the heart of the wholesale district may be found a restaurant that is feeding more people every day of the year than any other house in New York City and doing it along the line of old methods eatinghouseis paid for in cash upon the day it is purchased and that the proprietors have never yet given a check in pay ment for supplies nor owed one dollar at the close of the day and they keep the dealers supplying this remarkable establishment deliver the necessary goods at the receiving department and then form in a line leading to the cashiers desk where each one in turn receives his money in good hard coin When evening comes whatever is left in the cash drawer is profit less charges such as taxes light fuel c A further boast of the owner of this restaurant is that its doors have never been locked since first opened way back in wartime and that no one knows where the key now is An idea of the number of people fed may be gained from the fact that table salt used exclusively by the patrons at the tables and not including any used for cooking is purchased every four months in ten barrel lots each barrel containing three hundred pounds Wanted All the Goodies Teddy was about to be ten years old

freeseed busi ness They declared the farmers of their State demanded them anyhow Mr Cocks read letters from the editors of practically every agricultural paper in the country denouncing free seeds and when he frankly admitted he had written these editors nskiu their opinion of the proposed action of the committees he was attacked by the advocates of free seeds as if he had committed some crime ALL ABOUT SEED ADS Mr Bartlett wanted to know if these papers carried advertisements of the seed dealers to which Mr Cocks af firmed that he had no doubt of it as the business of selling seeds was a legitimate one Mr Fordney did not believe the answers represented an honest opinion as the replies had been soughtMr Cocks endeavored to proceed with his argument reenforcing it with citations from a stack of letters but he spoke amid a confusion that marked the day as the most unruly of the en tire session Mr Gains shouted him self hoarseand that is a difficult thing even for Mr Gaines to do Mr Mann scolded as he often does when he fails to approve Mr Fordney Mr French Mr Sims Lo Chandler and others asked questions simultaneously and the chairman of the all but broke his gavel in a vain

kind of which every one of the 70000000 people of the country got a piece Advocating economy in other direc tions Mr Trimble suggested less ex penditure on battle ships If we stay MANSION daughter marriage committee at home mind our own business let other people alone we shant need a battle ship any more than a burglar needs a jimmy and a dark lantern shouted Mr Trimble This sentiment

looked forward to receivingThis outburst of eloquence on the part of Mr Gaines threw the House into convulsive laughter When the members had partially recovered their composure Mr Gains rushed down

up for a vote the free seeds were continued by a vote of 153 to 82 A fight for the abol ishment of the free seed practice will continue for it is believed that the sending out of the packages are of

farmers after their fashion of laborious intensive cultivation They wretchedly poor but they chil dren of the soil and where they occa sionally do get into the same con genial occupation in this country they make good farmers and eventually good citizens immigrantsinbetter qualified for agricultural and horticultural pursuits than for any others These pursuits were theirs in their European homes and but for certain difficulties they would natural resort to them here The trouble is there is nobody ready as a general thing to offer them employment in groups on the land and transportation to the land is more or less expen sive On the other hand there are al ways contractors ready to engage them for railroad and similar em ployments in the seaboard States and sometimes in other more often they simply settle down in the big and already congested cities They take what they can get and more espe cially what will be most likely to en able them to enjoy the continued com panionship of their fellow immigrants The newcomer dreads the isolation which will usually be his lot if he accepts employment on a farm Under the farsighted plan of the men who are colonizing some Western areas particularly in California and New Mexico all these difficulties are avoided Groups of agriculturists of the same nationality are brought together and invited to become owners of small tracts sold to them on easy terms Ten acres of good land so ob tainableand the price of which he can usually pay in labor for others is a very attractive proposition to the average immigrant especially when in his new home he may be sur rounded by others of his own race The plan has been already demon strated to very to the promoters also vThe mountain In Colorado is Massive 14424 and the next is Elbert 14421

with a des perate hope like that of a hunted hare darted Into the gateand through the grounds the rabble surging after me Straight up the broad drive I ran through the front door which stood open and into the draw fug room where I sank upon a couch The next moment a woman entered the room I heard the swish of her skirts and her light footstep I looked up It was Aimee For a brief period she did not recognize me With wide open eyes her hand on her heart breathing rapidly she stood and listened to the jeers of the enraged assemblage She was dressed in blue and white the same gown she wore when first saw her Again she was my angel of comfort I arose and held out my arms Aimee I said That I was disheveled shabby hatless unshaven made no to this dear girl With a little cry of recognition she ran to me drew me down uEon the couch and put her face to mine my love she whispered My lionhearted Jamie I heard that you were dead I thought I Had lost you forever For a brief minute I held her

Juncture a harsh masculine voice Bounded in the hall then at the outer door Away with you varlets How dare you enter Back I say Away with you- Through the window I saw the villagers slink away like whipped curs They feared the anger of their overlord I drew a long breath of relief Suddenly the curtain at the door was flung aside and a tall sterntaced man strode In He looked at me first and then at Aimee How now he said harshly Vlllian what would have He came at me with clenched fists and I arose to confront this new danger But Aimee stepped in front of me and faced her uncle with her head erect and blazing eyes He Is my lover she said proudly He has come here for protection I shall de fend him as long as I have life in my sneer curled the uncles lips Your lover he said disdainfully

she led me Into the hall mid thence to the rear door where an extensive garden stretched away to a thickly wooded hill Her uncle stood seme distance behind watching us curiously Across yonder hill you will find a road that will take you to the railroad station Her voice rang out clearly She was not afraid to show her colors Though you are shamefully treated here you are no less my own Soon I shall be back at Laguna and my father and I will wel come you there Good bye my love She put her lips to mine Then In a quick whisper Hide In the woods until night Come to the gate and you will find a suit of clothes and money You can not travel in these I pressed her hand slipped away through the garden out of the gate and so to the shelter of the woods Late that night feeling like a kicked dog I slunk through the darkness to the back gate There on the ground I found a suit of clothes and a hat probably taken from her cousins closet for she had two male cousins who were officers In the French army I removed my soiled and worn uniform and In a few minutes was a fairly decent French gentleman In a pocket of the coat I found a purse con taining money which I did not need and a folded paper which I

But though love will always find a way as the old song the cherub is some times balked Before we could enter our carriage we observed bright lights in the windows of the chateau and heard shouts and the sound of wheels in the stable yard It was evident that the uncle had somehow learned of the elopement Aimee was terrified She informed me that her two cousins had but the day before re turned from the army and were loud in their abuse of the German officer who had won her affections Her life had been a burden since my visit We applied whip Fleischmann driv ing with me at his side while Aimee and the maid sat behind The road was smooth and for some miles we pushed on without sign of pursuit The night had been dark but now the heavy clouds broke away and wo went on through the brilliant

pursuit trlghtbutregained her composure and we drove on leisurely without fear of further In terruption Shortly after dawn we stopped at a small town breakfasted and after con sultation decided to leave the team and take the train for Paris At the station another surprise awaited us As the train from the south rolled In a dignified and handsomely uniformed French officer came from one of the

END 1Mrs Jennie C Taylor The increase in the number of women engaged in the banking business is very noticeable especially in the middle West and so far as known not one woman entrust with a sponsible bank position has failed or betrayed the confidence reposed in her One of the most successful of these banker women is Mrs Jennie C Taylor prin cipal owner and manager of the Bank of Melvin Indian Territory It is said that Mrs Taylor who by the way is a Cherokee Indian holding some stock in the bank and not satis fied with the management quietly bought up a majority of the stock and then took affairs in her own hands How well she has succeeded is proved by the standing of the institution not only in the vicinity but in the territory JUNE FORETHOUGHTS Some Suggestions for Summer Dresses for GirlsThe Graduating Frock By MARTHA DEAN With the rare days of Juno at hand there are many questions con cerning the wardrobe which interest both maid and matron June is the mouth for school and college gradua tion as well as for numerous weddings and anniversaries It is also the threshold of summer and many lads and lasses are looking forward to the time when they will board the train for shore or countryside June is sure to be a busy month for there are frocks to be fashioned for both old and young and everything must be thought out beforehand so as to answer for practical needs and summertime com fort The graduating frock is always a topic of interest to the girl for this is the day of all days her who is to leave her school life behind and it must be quite the finest gown that the family can afford Fashion has decreed that this dress must ue white and all white with not even a sash or bow of color It should also be simple but this does not mean mat a great deal of beautiful handwork may not be lavish ed upon it In fact in this day of exquisite effects one could scarcely imagine a graduating frock which did not show a little elaboration of some kind But these dresses are not elab orate on the scale of mothers gowns nor are they very fussy in design The mulls and Swisses were never more charming and sheer than this year and even the batistes lawns and mousseline de soies are very attractive and not expensive Silks are little used for the young girls wearing this year but the simpler fabrics are far in the lead for popularity The plain swiss resembles thin organdie but is much preferred to the latter as it wears better and launders well If this is inset with a bit of fine lace it makes the daintiest frock imaginable A FAVORITE GRADUATING DRESS The princess is the favorite style for the graduating dress and is usually made in a separate waist and skirt and joined when finished The joining is quite inconspicuous and does not mar the beauty of the whole The fullness about the waist is regulated by shirrs or tucks extending from hips to bust line or a bit below Many dresses are made in the round waist and skirt style as it is one always becoming and sure to be worn The girdle is of wide louisine ribbon shirred in front and back to pieces of featherbone of the desired width Some of the dresses have round yokes of insertion or allover lace while others are embroidered in some simple design The round and Dutch square necks are very popular and immensely becoming The skirts of these dresses are round and full sometimes trimmed high with narrow ruffles edged with lace and again inset with a wide panel of embroidery or tucking and lace The double flounce skirts are very youthful and pretty and especially so when made from wide embroidered flouncing This is inexpensive and makes very attractive frocks They are fitted about the waist by tucks or gathers Sleeves are of elbow length or longer to suit the wearer and may be finished with a deep cuff or a nar now ruffle of lace While many of the thin summer dresses for girls and older people are being worn over a colored slip this year this is not allowable for the grad uating frock although it may be worn over the tinted slip after the eventful day is passed MOUSSELINE DE SOIE Mousseline de soie is coming into popular use this year for gowns be cause of its soft texture and inexpensive quality It wears well and launders passably For these frocks the narrow Valenciennes laces are generally used being inset Into the waist skirt and sleeves without stint The mousseline is excellent for making simple afternoon dresses in princess style and many such are being worn by the elect of societyiIn summer robe by all means first in importance is the suit of linen madras or pongee which gives so much pleasure and comfort to the wearer from the fact that it can be fresh and dainty for each wearing This frock sometimes takes the form of the shirt waist suit and more frequently this season the coat suitLINEN ALWAYS POPULAR Linen is the most popular fabric for the summer suit and the little bolero will figure widely in the fashionable wardrobe To one with any pretense of following the fashion this little suit will be indispensable during the coming weeks It is light and cool easily washed and not expensive to make Linen of good quality which will wear and look well may be had for 25 cents a yard and that 2 inches wide The skirts of these suits are gored or circulargored meaning that a straight edge meets a bias one at each of the four seams This last named skirt will not sag like the cir cular one and yet has its advantages The skirts are little trimmed save for a stitched fold or two though some of the more elaborate ones show bands of embroidery set in With this suit is worn the lingerie blouse or one matching the suit A good supply of these thin blouses will be necessary this summer for they will appear upon every sort of occasion and will be worn incessantly They are far more dainty nan ever before and not more expensive If desired they may be made at home of fine batiste or lawn and prove very dainty and fetching Where the Nickel Got

the United States This timelyhadeven if it can be remembered for next growingthepensated since for at least small tomato patches the plan here sug gested has been proven by him to have several advantages Some years ago I attempted to grow SouthernFloridaPolkern winter market The tomatoes were planted in November It was the sweptFloridaated all frost linesthe first oc curred December 2Sth just on top of a balmy Christmas Eve spent on the thatdayproof region descended to 1SF with a biting northwest wind Thousands Of acres of tomatoes and eggplant were cut down to the ground For tunately for my partner and myself we Were from the region where JackFrost holds annual sway and we had main tained a seed bed in spite of the jeers of our neighbors By the use of fertilizer sacks all the bed quilts sheets and clothing we had and half a dozen fires to windward we managed to save some seven or eight thousand young tomato plants and thus when the frost king had passed on his way we had a start over our neighbors of from eighteen to twentyfour days in growth A SECOND FREEZE We had visions of wealth Instead of seven acres it is true we had plants for only about a single acre each but we expected eight ten or twelve dollars a crate for our toma toes instead of two or three dollars because all Florida had been wiped out Unfortunately in this instance the lightning struck twice and in February just as our plants were blos soming and beginning to form fruit a second and equally severe freeze struck into our midst and again the entire agricultural section of Florida with the exception of a very small acreage on the southmost keys was frozen to the roots However in this instance the Weather Bureau was on the lookout and about nine oclock in the evening we had information that a severe northwest blizzard was rapid ly moving down the State Necessity as usual proved itself the mother of invention and my part ner Mr C G Stephenson of Herndon Va and myself strapped lanterns to our left legs and with a big cotton hoe each tramped up and down ou long rows of tomatoes and with a single dig and pull for each plant cov ered the blossoming tomatoes with nearly a square foot of the loose Florida upland sand in which the winter tomato is grown By two oclock we had finished bur task and we thought we were somewhat tired but this effort was nothing to the job of digging out the plants on the two succeeding days The small of my back still creaks in remem brance of the straightening up periods at the end of each row Finally after the two freezes had done their worst and the genial sun of Southern Florida began to warm the air as upon a rare day in June we each found ourselves with about of an acre of rather dilapidated but still thrifty and little damaged tomatoes far advanced over those of the sur rounding fields- PRUNING TOMATO VINES The tomatoes were beginning to throw out numbers of axillary suckers just above each leaf It was my turn one day to drive the white mare to town and get a supply of grubwe were camping By chance I ran across an old stager who had drifted down to South Florida from the region of Crystal Springs Miss He told me of the methods in that vicinity by which tomatoes were not only ad vanced in ripening from five to seven days but increased in yield Much more labor was required but the re wilts were more commensurate ffhe consisted simply in staking aa PraD1IItach plant v We tried the scheme and it repaid us Ihavealthough it has been applied simply to a garden of tomatoes It is somewhat revolutionary and whether it is practicable or profitable where you are raising ten or twenty acres of this Ringlet PIYtmouth Garden New York Poultry Show j vegetable I am not prepared to say pruning and cultivating that of an Ihadgarden proposition where you are rats ithasculture The directions are these simple in the extreme but requiring rather close attention as once well growerByblossoms have a slim stake six feet in lengthin Florida we used pine sticks about one inch squarewith a crow bar or a heavy mallet stake your to mato firmly Take an ordinary piece of grocers soft cotton twine and tie exrbut found that the ordinary fivecent a ball white twine sufficed and that there was no danger of injuring the throughtheleaving of course the blossom stems In other words simply train the tomato vine to a single stem and as need be tie it up close to the stake During the season of growth three or four ties will suffice We tried using a sharp knife to cut off the suckers in the belief that yanking them off by the fingers would injure the main stem but event ually came back to the Crystal Springs method where everything is done by the fingersSINGLE STEM PLANTS There will be strong temptation should the vines get three four or five days start and one of the suckers or branches becomes almost as big as the main stem to let it grow in the belief that it will injure the vine to remove it but such mistakes should be ruthlessly remedied Once well started the tomato is one of the toughest and sturdiest growing vegetablesa horse can step on one without much damag ing itand there need be no fear about tearing out even the large suckers which have developed four or five TOMATOES TRAINED TO SINGLE STEMS After Photograph than plot leaves and even incipient blossom clusters However it is of course better to keep the vines pruned down closerADVANTAGES OF THE METHOD The result will be that the vine will grow up to the top of the stake stocky and strong The single leaves will de velop hugely and a great amount of moisture and sustenance which the roots collect instead producing ten or twelve pounds of useless growth will go largely into the formation of hangthicklysecure the full benefit of the suns genial warmth there will be no rot ting the ripe fruit can be seen at a glance the tomatoes will be larger and there will be few if any very small ones the yield per vine will be plantIngvines can be set considerably closer as the moisture requirement will be far less than under the usual method White Wyan dottes First Prize Pen at Boston 1005 k wproduceIf the ground is rich and the plant grows luxuriantly its entire strength pinchingreached the height of the stake Another advantage of this method of culture is that for a couple of weeks after the ordinary tomato crop even if CHICAGO AT SYDNEY tied up in the usual method is laid by the gardener with a wheel hoe can pass through the rows of staked tomatoes and with his hoe set very shallow can keep down any weeds which may rob the plants of their full share moisture Rows of tomatoes grown in this manner present one of the most at tractive sights Rather than a tomato patch they look like a young orchard laden with a plethora of ripening or green fruit Growing Korlb and West- T F McGREW The chief center of poultry growing upon the farms and by small establish producingis located in that portion of the coun try now called the North and West in which we must include Missouri Kan sas and the great Northwest- It is not usually known that Mis souri Iowa and Kansas are the great est producers of poultry of all kinds including waterfowl and that Michi gan and Wisconsin are becoming the greatest of all gooseproducing sections of the country Upon the vast wheat fields of the uponthousandshatched and cared for with reference to having them of the proper size for ranging over the wheat fields as soon as the harvest is in and are later gathered up by the of the great poultrykilling establishments of Kansas City and other centers These young fowls are taken away and shipped to the killing rlaces prior to the beginning the cold rigid weather of the North only leaving for the care of the farmers during the winter months a sufficient number to produce eggs for the next summers crop producelarge awaytofattened and sold to the City markets Missouri and Kansas have become great eggprOducingccnterSof the West It is claimed that more eggs and more dressed poultry are shipped from some of the gathering stations of Mis souri than from any oUer locality in this country Iowa has for many years ranked among the foremost states in the producing of both eggs and market poultry of kinds The last census figures for Iowa area surprise to many of those best in formed on poultry matters More ducks were reported as being grown and shipped to market Out of that State alone than Lad been credited to the whole West People imagined that the great duck farms of Long Island New Jersey and Pennsylvania had produced the duck supply of the coun try The future census will be closely scanned at its finish for a more careful study of these conditions So far as can be learned at present the in crease in poultry culture through these states has almost doubled in the last six years The West Is more largely interested In the Plymouth Rock and Wyandotte breeds than in any other The Eastern States seem to be more given to the cultivation of Leghorns than are any of the Western localities The eggs having the brown shells seem best suited to the West The brown shelled eggs stand shipment better from the fact that the shells are heavier and stronger than those laid by the Mediterranean breeds The Brahma and Langshan fowls were formerly most popular in these sections The Plymouth Rocks and the Wyandottes being
