The Method of Producing Flowers
Out of Season.
Lilies of the valley and many other
plants are now placed on the markets
of the world's great cities months aft
er they are out of season. This is ac
complished by "plant retardation,"
holding back the development by
means of cold and darkness until what
ever time is desired. Then they are
once more subjected to light and
warmth, when they blossom. The
most prominent feature of a plant re
tardation establishment is the huge
cold storage building in which the i
plants are- stowed away. Under the
care of the guide the visitor passes the
portals. In a moment he steps from
the warmth and light of a summer's
day Into the cold bitterness of a win- ]
ter's night, the darkness of which is
but feebly relieved by the flickering
hand lanterns. The interior of the
building is divided into various cham
bers, and each one of these is allotted
to some particular kind of plant One
chamber Is full of lily of the valley
roots, the next is packed with boxes
containing lilium bulbs, while again a
compartment is crammed with small
potted plants of a4alea and spiraea.
Each and all of these varieties are in
a dormant condition, sleeping away
their time entirely unconscious of the
changing seasons in the outside world.
The walls of the chambers are thickly
coated with a deposit of frost crystals,
and millions of these flash like dia
monds in response to the rays of light
from the lamp. The degree of cold is
usually obtained by means of a com
pressed air apparatus, and the freez
ing current Is led into the different
chambers through wooden channels.
In course of time these passages get
choked with hoarfrost, and it becomes
necossary for a man to enter them and
clean the accumulation away. This is
a cold job. In places the temperature
is as low as ~20 degrees below zero.
The costume of a workman engaged
in this clearing out operation is prac
tically an arctic outfit. Every part
of the body with the exception of
small holes for eyes and mouth must
be protected with thick wool. Other
wise serious frostbites would ensue.
Retarded plants may be kept in
check for eight months or at times as
long as a year, and curiously enough
they do not seem to be any the worse
for the treatment. Indeed, the experi
ence seems to make them grow all the
faster when they are allowed to make
a start Some varieties grow at a tre
mendous rate when they are brought
into heat.-Chicago News.

A great many people do not talk

Indulge in as little fool talk as possi

Investigate and you will find that

Intermarriage and Cancer.
So little is really known of the mys
teries of cancer that the merest scraps
of information with regard to It ought
not to be neglected. At the village of
Clovelly, on the north Devon coast, a
very large percentage of deaths is due
to cancer, and the reason locally given
is the habit of intermarriage necessari
ly brouo'ht about in a place so widely
severe&from the outside world. The
tate of affairs appears to be even
worse at Buck Mills, a fishing hamlet
three miles away, where Intermarriage
has been carrIed to such an extreme
hat one surname is almost sufficient
to designate the whole of the popula
tIon of the village.-London Telegraph.
An Uncertain Obituary.
A Georgia man wrote the following
on an oak slab which marks a supposed
grave in a meadow: "This spot is
sacred to the memory of a faithful ani
mal, a white mule, born ten years be
fore the civil war and went through
that war on a rush from Bull Run to
Lee's surrender. We ain't certain 'that
the mule died here, but when last seen
the faithful critter was grazing on this
identical spot and trying to kick a
lightning flash back to the clouds."
And Then He Ran.
"Did any man ever tell you," asked
Mr. Henpeck as he edged toward the
door, "that you were the sweetest and
most beautiful woman in the world?"
"No," replied his wife.
"Gee: Men are honester than I
thought they,- were."--Chicago Record
"How do you intend to have the
study decorated, Mrs. Goldrocks?"
"I thInk I'll have it decorated in deep
brown," replied Mrs. Goldrocks. "My
usband always likes to sit in a deep
brown study."-Milwaukee Sentinel.
