CPS FLOWER NOVELTY. 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 MECONOPSI8 DJTEQRIFOLIA. 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. WINTER KILLING. 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 Farmer. MIKE WRITES PAT. 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. Grapea, 'Win and Ralalaa. The average annual production of wine in the United States during the past ten years has been 25,500,000 gal lons and of raisins 89,500,000 pounds. The average annual shipment of Cali fornia grown grapes to states farther east is placed at 25,150,000 pounds. About 50 per cent of the grape crop In California is made Into wine, 35 per cent into raisins and 15 per cent ship ped as fresh grapes. 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 frowns. 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 ger when he gets to mixin Greek an Lattin with his already cumber some brogue. Your brother, Mike. Ten Rules For Employes. 1. Take as much interest in your employer's business as if it were your own. 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 vour work. 4. Do your work well to-day, you Won't have to do any of it over again to-morrow. 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 twice. 8. Do not let your thoughts al ways be wool-gathering if you ex pect to earn an increase of salary on pay day. 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 traveling. 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 tor for March.
