down the growth qf superflupu wood Another is to keep the shrub in such a shape that it will be attractive In old times it was thqught that pruning should be In the dlrecfaon pf the artificial and shrubs pf all varieties were trimmed in the same general manner The re suIt Vas a piass of shrubs nil trimmed In about the same general manner The artificial effect was not in accordance with what Is now considered good taste in landscape gardening and the natural tendency of the shrubs is now considered Every shrub has its own habit of growth and this should be encouraged His not desirable to have one variety of shrubs look like another variety of entirely differerit nature of growth 3brubs should be pruned a little each year rather than a great deal in anyone year The cutting off of com paratively large branches is as detrimental to a shrub as the cutting oft of a big limb is to a tree The prun ing should be so given that the hrub will become more graceful from year to year This means taste on the part of the pruner This is fc limi tation that cannot be escaped If the pruner has not that indefinite thing- W call good taste his pruning work will not be good but for this fault there is no remedy unless it be the securingof a pruner that has taste- KEEP THE CELLAR COOL HOW to Manage When the AppJes Have Been Stored After the apples are in the cellar that place should be kept as cold as it is possible to keep it without reducing the temperature below the freezing point With a little care the win dows of the cellar can be so adjusted as to let the cold air pour in during all the night and then shut the cellar and keep in the air during the day Even if the temperature outside of the cellar is below freezing the ad justment of the cellar windows can be such that the volume of bitl wing cold air can be only enough to keep down the general temperature to below 40 degrees This is low enough for several varieties of tipples In fact a few 9 itesoft varieties seem to keep better near 40 than near 30 though the data on this point are not yet extensive v The barrels in which the apples are stcred should be headed and kept in a dry part of the cellar farmers leave their barrels otapples un headed with the result that the air is constantly drawing the moisture out of the apples This is now recog nized as detrimental to the long keep Ing of the apples PENETRATION

International Roads Congress at Paris returned to Washington a few days since firm in the belief that in some pf the more scientific branches pf highway con struction the United States has nOth- ing to1 learn froth the Older Nations though he was willing to concede that those countries surpass this to an t Amazing degree in the percentage of improved road mileage and in the P jealous care with which their splendid highways are maintained kv Automobile Traffic Among the many thing which es impressed Mr Page during t this European trip were the methods for regulating automobile traffic in France and England the belief of a majority of the delegates to the Roads Congress that the automobile running at average speed is not det riinental to highways the splendor of French hospitality tlfe discovery satisfactoryhighways structed by mining limestone and granite after tne methods set forth in publications issued through the United States Office of Public Roads and the amusing discussion now be ing carried on by English automobii- v ists against horse traffic in city streets and upon suburban highway t Bureau of R ads It is his belief that frdm the Con gress itself at least one big result wilT flowand credit for that must go to America On a suggestion by Mr Page it was determined to ere ate an International Bureau bf Roads similar in some respects tp the In ternational Bureau of Navigation I This body will consist of two pr more delegates from eachof the 29 g governments represented at the Congress Its purpose wil be the col lecting of all possible information on roadwork the passing on it by a Committee of epertsa d its distri- butiOn throughout the world Ultimate Benefits The ultimate benefits of so far reaching a move cannot now be esti mated but the world will some day carry a heavy debt of gratitude to the government whose highwa rep jresentatives conceived the thought oft ucha Bureau and brought to its support the delegates of every civil 1izedcountry on the globe Credit must go to Air Page for the proposed erection ofa memorial to- M Tresauget the great French high way engineer who was the originator of the modern French system of road maintenance and who began tho building of the incomparable system of highways that has made France famous as a roadbuilding Nation- The resolntionto that effect was in troduced by Mr Page andunani mously adopted the Secretary Gner al Being empowered to receive con tributions with which to carry out its provisions s Plans For Visitors ASKed what plais France had vQiade for the visitors Mr Page said that lie had been amazed at the man ner in which the Republic had plah ned for the comfort and the enter tainment t of the delegates l Among the functions was an eki- bvv orate recepfiQiIat the Elysee Palace where the National delegates were re ceived by President Fallarieres The sessions of the Congress were held 4n a vast auditorium at the Sorbonne the various sections meeting in rooms especially furnished for their corn fort and convenience at the Salles du j Jeu de Paume ina corner of the beautiful garden of the Tuileries Receptionfp Besides the official reception at speciatheatricalwhich a famous French actress recit theca reception at the palace of the Ifinister of Public Works another at the magnificent Hotel de Ville side excursions to Fontauibleu ii f and Nice and a luncheon at the

France to the visitors for it is only4 on rare oc qasibns that the water is turned into this chain of basins i Hote de Ville At the reception at the Hotel de Ville the visitors were also treated to scenes of splendor f9r ignto American ideas of simplicity Areg iment of the picturesque uniformed Chasseurs of the French army were detailed to stand at attention one on either end of every step of the grand marble staircase down which the delegates passed and thence in double rows to the state dining rooms and grand salons Gratifihgjtnd im pIessive as were these examples of almost royal hospitality the chajr man of the American delegation found more of interest in the perfec tion of the system Qf roads With which the Republic is provided and in fiie systematic methpd of maintaining them to the highest degree of efficiency He was told that on the magnificent road leadingfrom Paris to Versailles 5000 automobiles pass either way on each fine day but he noted that it was iri such perfect condition that it was practically as dustless as the carefully swept asphalt street of a large citv tI I Macadam Roads No better macada roads + built in France than can be and are btiilt in this country but the maintaining of theSe roads is attended to with the utmost care apd for that reason the highways are invariably in such splendid condition that they excite the envy of American visitors Prior to Arrival frpthe company of some of the famous highway engineers of the Empire examining roads throughout England It is his belief that England has ar rived as near to the sol tioJlof dust less roads the present day problem of all highway engineers as any Na tion Her engineers have given the use of bituminous materials for Spraying macadam1 roads the utmOst thought and care4 Spraying high ways with such materials after sci ence has been called to the aid of the highway builder bas a tendency to preserve the solidity of the roads and prevent the formation of dust land England has made such progress in this branchof road study that many miles of suburban roads are as free from the disease breed ing dust nuisance as the best kept streets of the principal cities of the world So firm are the highway scientists in the demand that these conditions not nerely maintain but improve that the first fight against the horse has been taken up by the automobists Came Into Use When the motor car began to come into use the teaming interests of the world weer strong They berated the automobile in unmeasUred terms said that it was a menace to the public and to the horse that itendan gered life and linab in fact advanced every argument against it Jhat from time immemorial hasbeen advanced against the advent of every great in vehtion or civilizing influence Early Days of Republic In the early days of the American Republic the packsaddlemen fought bitterly against the advent of the wagon They declared it would make possible the ngpfhavierl Lids and the consequent ruining of the packsaddleindustry the wagon men fought the stage coach on the the ory that it would facilitate traffic and throw wagon men out pf work the stage coach men battled against the raihoads on the theory that the running of street cars would drive out the stage coach driver and each in ttniwas forced to make way Horse Car vs Trolley The fight of the horse car meh against the trolljey ear IB remembered by all The claim was then made that 2000000 horses would be thrown rout of work and that hose breeders would starve The trolley is we nigh universal and yet more horses are raised each year than the year before and they bring bptter pricesSThe horse interests have ever fought the automobile There have been thousands of columpof argu ment published short sighted inen have adv cated

4 The claim they advance is that the polluting of al public thoroughfare is clone not by automobilists but by horses j that if no horses were allowed todrbp organic matter on public thoroughfares the dust nuisance wciiiid soon be naught but an un pleasant memory They advance tIe logical statement that the nuisance created byhundreds of thousands of horses is detrimental to public health and a menace to the pavements and they charge that the continual cleansing of the streets bee useof this traffic imposes a vast aifd an unjust tax upon the citizens Source of Gratification It was a source of great gratification to the American chairman to be frankly told in both France and England that this Nation has stepped aliead of both those Nations in the testing of materials for building ma cadam roads Various experiments conducted by the Office pf Public Roadshave developed the fact that it is possible in road builling to obtain- a better bonded surface by mixing rocks such as limestone with sili cious rocks such as granite or sandstone oj Adopts Discovery That discovery embodied in publications sent out through the United St t Department of Agriculture had been adopted by some of the British highway engineers and while in England Mr Page was driven over a number of stretches of splendid highway built bv the blending of such material and was commended by those who built them In conjunction with that phase of highway construction Mi Page was asked if it would be possible for his dffice to receive about 300 samples of the characteristic road building rocks of Great Britian and make lab oratory tests of them v Official Invitation It jvas specifically stated r the of ficial invitation sent from France many months ago that the Congress at Paris was called for tub purpose of discussing the effect of automobile traffic upon public highways and if deemed detrimental to devise means ofovercoming the effect Asked what conclusion was reached by the Congress Mr Page said that autoi mobile traffic andits effect was very thoroughly discussed and thatmany brilliant papers were presented every phase of the question being treated of As itvas impossible to arrive at a unanimous conclusion the ques tion of damage done was left for a later determination It was the con sensus of opinonhovever that automobiles driven at ordinary rates jj speedare npt especially harmful fo good highway Especially Impressed Mr Page especially impressed by the laws regulating automobile traffic in practically all portions of France and England Unlike the laws prevailing in nearly every sec tion of tins country the motor car restrictions of those countries are framed for the purpose of stopping reckless driving and the officers responsible for their enforcement are not restricted as are American oil dais No speed limit provisions Are incorporated in the laws of France or England If in the judgmentof an officer a motor car driver is reck less even if proceeding at less than eight miles an hour he is subject to arrest If on the other hand he is proceeding at expr ssspeedon a brand new thoroughfare free from other traffic apd is not endangering the lives 01 the property of others he is well within his rights and may not be interfered with USEFUL POODLE One of the city letter carriers h ome in contact with so manypoodle dogs on hia rounds that he has often thought of what use they could be put to and at last has solved the problem and found that they can be made uspfulas well as ornamental He read this in the pitti ofa Sunday paper A lady who kept a little curly poodle lost her pet and called on the police to find it The next day one of the force came with the dog very Vet and dir ty The lady was pverjpyed and asked a number of silly questions among others

Came From Missouri In the fall of 1906 Wm E Ball qame from Missouri mid bought a tract of land adjoining Loving Ir rigation was new to him The climatic conditions were strange The soil was not like his old Missouri soil The first year Mr Ball floun dered around following this malts advice and disregarding some other mans advice His first seasons work was apparently a failure and if any man had reason to be dissatisfied with the country he had Bpt all this time he had kept his eye open He had learned by his own mistakes and by the mistakes of his neigh bors At the enaof the first year he had solved the puzzle and began to farm skillfully and profitably He planted about fifty aqres of al falfa He plowed his ground har rowed it disked it harrowed it again leveled it in short went over his Ian da dozen times or more before it was ready to plant He planted and the results were ai surprise to his neighbors who had always claimed that alfalfa would never growin that locality At the end of his second season Mr Ball has tak en in enough money to cover his original investment and the costQf every improvement that has been made on the place including a large residence sheds deep well grainary etc He has a place that attracts the attention of the passerby and is today worth over 100 an acre the original price paid being 16 ah acre Mr Ball has planted mare alfalfa this year and is otherwise improv ing his place being satisfied that the Carlsbad project is a good place to live and make a liyiiig Ottfer New Settlers There are ther new settlers that hare done equally as well To the old timer the man who has worried along for twenty years trying to make a living out of this same land shakes his head aria says it is beyond his understanding how these things can be Another

months the fifteen acres H ere beautiful to look atr In three years it has come to be a fine orchard where once the mesquite brush and the cactus ruled unhampered In two more years this Orchard will

BENTON Continued from page oiij j from time to time during the past six months I have heard the very best substantial and representative Democrats of Clark Powell and Madison counties at various tUnes urge Judge Hays to make this race for Circuit Judge It will become necessary in refuting these charges to give a brief sketch of my political historYi which is in part as follows r I began voting the Democratic ticket when Judge JmesM Benton was a mere w eanlingy and have never cast a Republican vote and never will The charges and insinuations con tamed in these paragraphs are unjust and hypocritical The lines in which he writes These men and their followers are my political en emies because I have in every eke tioiij always voted for the Democratic ticket and made a square fight for the Democratic party and its can didates In so faras these lines refer to me I denounce them as ma liciously false For ten years I served ns elmirmafy of the Democratic Committee of this county and for about twelve years as member of the State Central Committee My fellow Democrats have never made any complaint of the way in which I discharged theduties nec essary to make an efficient member of said committees which duties included the expenditure of quite a little sum of money during those twen tytwo years Yet I have never held a remunerative office In 1895 I joined Judge Benton and others in the interest of McCreary to make the fight in Clark county in the primary between the Hon James B McCreary and the Hon J C S Blackburn for the instruction of the representative of this county as to how he would vote between them in the race for United States Senator The issue between the two can didates wasthe money questionMc Creary being for sound mOney and Blackburn for free silver at the ratio of 16 to 1 Benton was then for sound money and against free silver and assisted in making the fight qn that issue He did not change his views on this subject and has never changed theminreality When the party split in 1896 I- siipporLedJaImer and Buckner as did many other good Democrats for principle Benton took the free sil rer end of it for rev h5Ie not that he believed in It and he knows It He Was afraid to lose a chance for office for which he lias hadr hanker ing all his life Since he has lived in my county he hits held office about threefourths 6f the time By corn puting interests as bankers omput- ettall he has drawn from the people during the last fifteen years it will amount to nearly 50000 He now asks the party to put him in a po sition to draw 1800000 more He ungratefully made a fight before the last Legislature to for ethe people of this district without even asking their leave to pay him 1200000 more These are some of the side lights which may be thrown upon this loyal Democrat Since 1896 1 have Continually vot ed for the Democratic ticket with- Jndge Benton in the saddle soiong- ns have agreed with him and fav oredShim and his friends tf0r office I have been a great Democrat in his estimation In 18997Tie favored my appointment to fill a vacancy as a member of the State Canvassing Board during those trying times when a reliable Democrat was need ed he recommended my appointment without my solicitation When Goe belwas assassinated it became advisable that a few of the Democrats should go to JPrankfort to give encouragement to the members of the Legislature Iwent with Judge Benton without hesitation when jnany of his special friends declined to go on account of the danger This was three years after 96 He then thought my Democracy was Simon pure Trying times they were I JithSpeakeronets when General Collier drove the Legislature from the Hall the dark est day in Kentucky history Ben ton did not then consider me an un desirable Democrat

1904 he pledged his support to me for State Senator when many of the good Democrats were being men honed for the office He did work to get the nomination form without opposition He did not then con siaer ine an undesirable Demociat From 1896 to 1904 for eight years there was nothing too good for Judge Benton to offer me The first time my political principles became offensive to Benton was in 1904 when I fav ored Kehoe over McQuown for Chair man of the State Central Committee My convictions were then strong that the election of Kehoe vould be greatly to the interest of the Dem ocratic party of the State I then saw that his defeat meant disaster to the Democratic party of the State and I spelled defeat for Blackburni and McGreary This prediction was forcibly presented to Judge Benton and he was urged at the time by Mc Crearys friends that Kehoes defeat meant McCrearys defeat This is the vital cause which gives Braa ley McCrearys seat in the Senate Many of our Clark county friends including Judge Hays C B Fox Major Conkwright Hon Abe Renici- and others deeply impressed with this same conviction joined me in taking a delegation to the convention at Louisville thus making a ma3 ir ity for Kehoe At the same time Judge Benton was appealed to time land again by the McCreary men throughout the State who attempted to convince him that Kehpes defeat meant McCreary defeat but this had ho effect upon him My action in this matter seemed to have caused him great displeasure and since then he lias at various times and in ya rious ways attempted1to convince Democrats of

turned from side to side before stopping while the raw egg A stopped almost immediately John Was delighted with his aunts surprised expression There is another way to tell he said and a simpler way He put the two eggs on a platter and spun them Then he laid his hand on each for an instant to stop their movement and the aunt saw that the hardboiled egg stopped at once while the raw egg continued to

WHY YOU SHOULD TDO SO Encourage Your Local Dealer and Thereby Enhance the Value of Local J ofProperiyWhy Help toBuild Up an TalkIrsending the money away fromI t home the person who patronizes the mail order house impoverishes his local merchant prevents his local merchant from bringing on well assorted stocks or large stocks of merchandise pre- ventS the local merchant from employ ing more help which usually comes from the ranks of his patrons pre vents his local merchant from assisting worthy local enterprises either the church lodge factory or political movement that are nearly always for thebenefittof his community says p Up to Date Farming published from Indianapolis The paper continues with tills strong argument for home trading It prevents the growth of population in the community in which the patrons of the mail order houses live and in that way reduces the value of land in which the farmer in particular Is interested The greater number of people in the community the better should be the price of land By patronizing the mail order houses the person patronizing such houses is often deprived of the privilege of buying many articles that he needs im mediately that would be of great ben efited him and whose cost could prob ably be saved many times over if he could butbe supplied at once By refusing and failing to buy from his local dealer he loses the opportuni ty of buying goods which he actually needs and which by comparison he could pick out as the best and the cheapestIt uwell known fact that mall order houses get the most of their business based on low priced goods and when a low price is named invariably low class goods are furnished- It is also a well known fact that mall order houses seconds and goods of low qU311ty Asa rule of course they keep some standard goods that they offer at less than legitimate profit which blinds the mail order house customer and makes him believe that everything the mail order house offers Is good quaUtyand low in price which of course is snot true ttIt behooves every person whether he be farmer mechanic professional man or capitalist to buy everything that he needs from his local merchant when it Is possible to do itto do everything that he can to encourage the local dealer and local manufacturers The sympathy of your own people is a thing much to be desired and very much needed It isa fact and can be proved that many former successful merchants in communities that were prosperous pre advent of the mail order houses pave been bankrupted and re duced to poverty and the people in ouch communities can get only the bare necessities and have to make fre quent trips to nearby towns in order to make selections that they formerly localmerchantsWe appeal to all persons to patronize their local merchants always and never to let the small difference in price on a few articles stand In the way of pat ronizing the local merchant fightithe trust with one hand the trusts that have reduced the price of labor and farm products to such an extent that your calling is the poorest paid in the land and help form another trust with the other hand because these trusts are willing to sell to you in some in Iistances at a price slightly lower than your local merchant can sell the goods to you for and get a living profit You wills find that your home merchant will sell you the same quality of goods just as cheap if you pay him cash and the freight and you get the goods without waiting from two to three weeks for them Temporary Park Planting It Is often advisable in park plant Ing to set out a secondary set of trees for immediate effect these to be cut out later For this purpose nothing r surpasses the eucalyptus for If well watered the first year the trees will provide for the second summer shade sufficient for picnics and like gather- Ings In the third year they have Lformed a young forest providing shel ter sufficient for any purpose besides giving a decided parklike effect to the tract Not later than the fifth year they should in part be removed and this policy continued withby the tenth year not one should be left If the fundamental planting has been r skillfully done a single decade of growth should give some good shade and permanent landscape effects J Novel Tree Preservation iAsubterranean tree may be seen in vfront of the ElmhUrst grounds Jn Kansas City It Is a

produced the tithe setting an example that was fol owed by his staff But said Sheridan as he passed through the gate I cannot Vouch for my army When the common soldiery came the girl again lowered the toll tar and demanded toll This was met by jeers from the guard All day the dusty troopers passed through and all day Charlotte Hillman stood at her post For every ten soldiers who passed through the

At a cost of from 25 to 50 cents anyone can make one of these milk bottle ice boxes Any ordinary wood en box about 13 by 18 inches with a depth of 12 inches can be obtained from your grocer In the bottom of this box place plenty of sawdust and on this set a tin pail or can that is eight inches in diameter and high Keeps Milk Cool and Sweet enough to take in a quart bottle of milk The pail must

of the top of the pail Fasten withnails or tacks about 50 layers of newspapers to the under side of the box cover The milk bottle Is set in the pail and broken ice packed about it An ice box of this description says Popular Mechanics will hold two quart bot tles of milk It will take about two cents a day to operate this cooling device Not Wholly Careless Thomas Chett was a meek but careless clerk
