4l(Biflent Harur Plant From H
lain ol Tibet.
Horticulture is greatly enriched by
the introduction of this magnificent
apoppywort, which, according to a cor
respondent of Gardening, Is now estab
lished In one of the English nurseries,
-and plants of It In flower have received
a first class certiiu-nte of the Royal
Horticultural society and have been
.acclaimed by experts far the most at
tractive of all the hardy plants of re
cent Introduction The enterprising
sflrro who dispatched a collector all the
way to the mountains of Tibet to ob
tain this plant and the collector, E.
H. Wilson, who found and got it safe
ly home, are to be congratulated.
The correspondent writes: "From Its
behavior under cultivation M. Integrl
folia Is a biennial, as indeed are all
the meconopsls we grow, notwithstand
ing the botanists' statement that they
are perennial. The plants are from
eighteen to twenty-four inches high,
with a stout stem, surrounded by nu
merous narrow, hairy leaves and bear
ing large, drumstick-like buds and open
flowers, which In size are as large as a
man's fist, their color being the softest,
most pleasing yellow.
XiBck of Moisture Believed to Be the
Cause In Peach Tree.
At the February and March meetings
of our horticultural society we expect
to hear that budded peaches are more
or less winter killed, but natural fruit
is all right. Wo hear this report near
ly every year. The writer has held for
years that winter killing is mainly
caused by winter drying and that
more moisture Is dried out of the tree
or plant than Is supplied by the roots.
It is well known that evaporation is
going on all through the winter, even
in the coldest weather. When green
brush Is cut off and piled up early in
the winter it is dry by spring. Wood
seasons all winter. Corn In the crib
dries all winter. All trees and plants
would dry to death In the winter were
it Dot that the roots are taking up
moisture all the time. Whenever the
supply of moisture Is cut off by any
means the tree begins to dry. With a
peach tree the fruit buds are more east
ly killed than are the wood buds, and
they perish first. The life of the tree
or plant Is of more account than the
fruit buds, and nature provides that It
shall be the last to perish.
When a peach tree grows in the nat
oral way it Bends down a strong tap
root to a great depth. The taproot of
a one-year-old peach tree extends far
ther below the surface of the ground
than the branches do above. This en
ables it to take up moisture from be
low the frozen ground. Budding the
tree has nothing to do with its hardi
ness, but it is very different with the
transplanting. The taproot is cut off
perhaps eight inches below the surface
and is rarely reproduced. The lateral
roots extend In all directions, but never
to any great depth. A few days of
very cold weather, when the ground
Is bare, will freeze it to a greater depth
than the roots extend. In this case the
supply of moisture is cut off while the
branches are drying up. First the
fruit buds will be killed, and if the
process is continued long enough the
tree will perish. M. Crawford in Ohio

Two Storr Flower Bed.
There is no difficulty in arranging In
one bed plants which grow tall and
slender and beneath them a carpet of
some low, close growing favorite which
will cover the ground with blossoms.
Thus the flower bed becomes of two
stories, and double the amount of
pleasure Is obtained from It A very
pretty example of this style Is given
in the popular book "Elizabeth and
Her German Garden." She carpeted
her rose bed with pansles, and others
have followed her example with satis
faction. A bed of roses is charming;
so Is a bed of panties; a bed of them
both Is a double delight. Floral Life.

Greeiisburrow, N C,
Feb 21, 1906.
Deer Pat: Tbe last outrage on
the Digger race was the mutterins
of that old scaly-rinded nigger
bishup Turner down at Macon
Georgia, who says that the United
btaits Has: is a dnrty and contempti
ble rag, an "Hell is an improvement
on the United otaits when the nig
set is involved." Now, your broth
er Mike does not object to any man's
braggin about his own country, be
he white or black, but I dont like
for that old scaly-rinded, pitchy Ace
of Spaids to be savin his country i
an improvement on our Uncle Sam
mr. If he thinks he's a tellin the
truth he ought to go back home, an
stay with his fokes.
All the quiet, industrious niggers
can hud profitable employment, an
our fokes are triad to get their ser
vices and pay em well for it; but, as
far as that old alligater they call
Turner, is concerned, he is thrice
welcome to emigrate to his chosen
country, and take advantage of the
improvements he mentions, to iaui.cn
his bark, black as the hinges of
midnight, on its Stygian flood, while
his old heart is made glad by ihe
presence of his associates who pre
ceeded him and his scaly, smutty,
pitchy carcas add is fanned by sul
phurous breezes which delight only
demons of his caliber.
Sumhow or other I kindly hope
them niggers that were listenin to
him when he made these vile, con
temntible staitments will have more
sence than to pay any attention to
his ravins, an will not all try to
toiler him when he desides to emi
grate to his boasted improvements
All the eeoerafies speak of that
country down there as a mity dark
abode, but if that old scaly-rided,
perfiidious hater of white men, who
tax theirselves to educate his race,
ever darkens their dismal gates the
inhabitants thereof will think that
the endless night is jist beginnin to
set in m earnest, an tue improved
country of which he boasts will be
made a hundred fold darker by his
ihe industrious southern niggers
are content with their environments,
an they'd get along alright :f it
were not that sich old eruptive
mzers as old smutty, pitchy iiishup
turner take an occasional spell of
hidrofobia and bite em. What nig
ger is it that the white people re
spect? Not the old fool that thinks
Greek an Lattin good for niggers,
not the dingy dude that thinks say-
in "heek, hike, hoke" suits his" hus
ky voice better than "gee, .haw,
Buck;" but the honest, truthful, in
dustrious nigger that works six days
of the week, and stays at home at
home at night while the "heek, hike,
hoke" niggers are out pillagin sum
farmer's chicken roost, or robbin
bis smoke house, or brakin in some
store, an landin onto the chain-gang.
What woman would not stand up
for the faithful old black mammy
who rocked her babies to sleep an
with heart an voice sung tender
lullabies to the little ones entrusted
to her care.' W hat man would not
ate for the faithful old darky who
hitched hes horses, cut his fire-wood,
done de turns without a murmur,
an never forgot to be very polite to
white fokes? No power on earth
can blot from the memories of white
people them good old darkies who
were never spoilt with "eddication,"
who were never too lazy to "wuck."
What about the modern nigger
boy that wants to get an "eddica
tion" so he can live without "wuck?"
Its a plain case. He gets to walkin
the streets of sum town with his
britches rolled up at the bottom,
his hat on one side of his head, a
big high collar an a red tie around
his sable neck, an a sigaret or segar
stump in one corner of his big
mouth. He tries to be a dude, an
enckseeds mity well in makin the
biggest fool in the whole ape family.
That night he will visit sum far
mer's chicken roost or smoke house,
or corn crib, or some other place
where he can steal sumthin; for then
them that live in high style have
got to manage sum way to keek up
expenses. If they dont work you
may expect to steal. Next thing
you know he is caugnt witn tne
stolen goods, then by the sheriff, an
then he lands on the chain-gang.
Or perhaps he steals without bein
caught, an does worse than gettin
on the chnia-gang by makin a ragin
fool like old Bishup Turner.
But people ought not to mistreat
'liggers that behave at. work an lay
up sumthii g for a rainy day jist be
cause sum old Dauuon wants io
slander everything and everybody
thats desent, an insult the national
flag, an try to make fokes believe
that his country is an improvement I
on Uncle Sammy. The peaceable. ;
quiet niggers cant help what sich
upprobious scalawags say. an tne
white fokes is a goin to stand by all
the niggers that s worth anything
to the world.
It uster be in this stait that the
niggers was made to believe they
ought to be poloytishms an publics
offisers, but since they desided to
let the white people do the votin
and take care of the polyticks the
best or em is a doin fairly well.
But sum of the old sore-backs tre
awful mad because they can't de
liver the more ignorant of their
race to the polytishin who will yank
out their price, as uste be the case,
An industrial education will do
good for most of the niggers, but
when they get to tryin to warble off
Greek and Lattin words all hope's
gone, an it would bo better for sich
niggers if a millstone were tied
about their necks an they were cast
into a alligater 8 mouth.. 1 tell you
there s no hope for the average nig

Lattin with his already cumber
Ten Rules For Employes.
1. Take as much interest in your
employer's business as if it were
2. Do not expect to get all yo'i
can and give nothing. Do a little
more work than is demanded.
3. Be prompt. Show that you
have an interest in your work above
a desire for an exta half-hour in
bed in the morning. You can't come
down a half-hour late every morning
and impress your employer with the
idea that you are a wide-awake active
man or woman with an interest in
4. Do your work well to-day, you
Won't have to do any of it over again
5. Be cheerful and willing. A sul
len countenance is not pleasant to
look upon by either an employer or
a customer. Remember your pull
ing power with a customer is one of
your assets. J he reverse, will be
your loss. Be courteous. Do not
thrust your own troubles ana in Har
mony upon those around you. It is
a poor investment.
6. Be conscientious. Don t take
too much interest in ball games,
theatres, parties, etc., or you may
find that yrn have not much time
left to give to your work. Don't
have a relative die too often. Fun
erals some times grow monotonous
to an emp'oyer during the base ball
season or on matinee afternoons.
7. Do not make the same mistake
8. Do not let your thoughts al
ways be wool-gathering if you ex
pect to earn an increase of salary on
9. Do not shirk your worK ana be
always thinking of the money side
of the proposition. Give good value
for the nioney you receive and yon
will he sure to succeed.
10. Put yourself in your employ
er's place and figure out what kind
of an employee you would hire to
get the most out of your business.
Then set yourself to try to be that
employee. There is no short, easy
road to success, but it is well worth
Something About An Egg.
The everyday world is full of won
derful thiugs, yet when you give a
moment s thought to an egg well,
a chemist would tell you it contains
so much proteid, phosphoric acid
and iron. But one should think of
it as a
Treasure Louse, whereiu lie
Ijcked by angels' alchemy
Milk and hair and blood and bone.
An egg contains in concentrated
form everything that is required to
develop a chicken, and it can be
cooked in so many ways that it is
palatable as well as digestible. That
is why eggs are chief among the
foods allowed an invalid. Though
chemists have tried for a hundred
years to discover it, nothing in
science or in all our wide variety of
foods can be transformed into a
substitute for egg. Of course one
could if necessary, cook without
them, only it would mean going
without a Bcore of dishes we think
of as everyday necessities, Buch as
custards, cake, puddings, griddle
cakes, to say nothing of the abun
dant use of what we might call pure
ly egg dishes. i?rom The Delinea
