THE TOLA. REGISTER, FRIDAY JANUARY 25 1901
Speaker Barker Announees
his Chief Committee
By Having Her .Member
Chosen as Chairman of
The Ways ami Menus, the Committee,
to Which Is Referred the Most
Topeka, Jan. 17 Speaker Barker
was a little slow in making up his
commlttco of ways and means, but Ills
long deliberation has given to the
liouso a particularly strong'comtulttce.
With the exception of Mr. Ilonnoll, of
Brown, and Mr. Davis of Bourbon,
the commlttco is composed of old
members, and its chairman, John
Francis of Allen county, probably has
a better knowledge of tho llnancos of
Kansas and tho real needs of tho peo
ple than any other member of tho leg
islature. Mr. Francis, besides being
:in experienced legislator, has been
treasurer of tho Stato three terms and
when it comes to bestowing appropri
ations his oxporleneo will be imalu
nblo. Noxt to him is J. B. Konfing
ton of Miami, who, himself, has been
chairman of the committee in former
legislatures. Their associates, Gies-
ser, Bigham, Keos, Lawrence, God
shallc, Harris, Spurloek, Simmons,
Sims, Watklns, Flnloy.IIlll, Ilonnoll,
Davis and Sohlejer are all activo men
of nlfnirs and will apply business
principles in passing upon appropri
ations. The only criticism of the speaker's
selections comes from tho minority
side of tho house, which gets only two
members, Schlejer and Duvls. This,
porhaps, from a party standpoint, is
a fair criticism, but tho character and
cxccllenco of tho men re-elected, makes
good for any neglect of tho minority.
Besides so much pressure was brought
to bear by Hepubllouns on tho com
mittee that tho minority Is In good
luck to get oven two places.
Summer Vacation Society.
The Ottawa Herald tolls how tho
young professional men of Ottawa aro
scheming to eaeh have a vacation tho
coming summer without losing all their
savings or having their business ut
terly neglected. As it would bo easily
feaslblo in Iola tho plan Is hereby pre
sented. "Briefly, tho Idea is this: Thero aro
a number of young professional men
In town who want to go .soinewliero
whon hot weather comes. They know
tho ovils of tho conventional summer
vacation, and wish to light shyoltheni.
They also have learned the dlllieul
culties of laying up expense money for
journeys to vacation spots, and wish
to overcomo that obstacle. Aeeoid
inglv it has been proposed and prac
tical adopted that a mutual "sink
ing" fund bo created for tho trip to
somo secluded garden of Eden, when
tho sun gets too far north. A half
dozen, or maybo a dozen, convivial
and congenial spirits will band to
gether and pay a stated initiation fee
into the association of frosh air lovers.
Eaeh month until hot weather tho mem
bers will each and sevui ally dig up u
stated sum to add to tho fund. Bj tho
llrstof Juno or perhaps by tho llrst of
July, tho storo w ill bo amply largo and
tho party will get under way. It will
probably head lor Colorado It will
rent a cabin far away In the fastnesses
of tho mountains, and with a suitably
stocked commissary will go into re
t -eat. Tho common treasury will sup
ply tho round trip transportation and
all other expenses of tho syndicate.
Tho outing will last for a month.

Tho standard grape for all purposes
as everyone knows Is tho Concord. It
comes nearer growing and doing well
In all kinds of soil than any other vu
rlcty. But for homo and tableuse thero
aro soveral kinds that surpass it in
llavor and pioduetiveness. Most how -over,

ditions of soil, and climate, and re
quire more care and loss neglect to
obtain tho host results. Among tho
varieties deserving trial aro tho Karl j

desirable for all purposes.
Added to theso are a number of new
varieties, originated at Denison
Mr. Munson thoorlglnutor, probably
tho most scientific expert In tho world
on grapos and has produced them at
great expenso of timo and patience.
Ho has combined tho extreme hardi
ness of tho most northern grown va
rieties, with tho tender highly llavored
kinds of southern Europe, retaining
in tho new sorts, sutllctent endurance
to stand our winters, with theexquislto
llavors of grapes from Italy.
Among theso varieties wo coula se
lect white, red and black grapes rip
ening from tho earllestto tho timo that
frost kills tho foliage.
In this connection, although not
a part of the subject of arietles, a
thorough spraying of Bordeaux mix
ture will no doubt do moro to destroy
tho fungous diseases of tho 'grape, and
add many times to tho quantity and
quality of tho product.
Tho Bordeaux mlxturo Is nmdo by
dissolving (I lbs of sulphite of copper
in ."A) gallons of water and adding
theieto a mlxturo of 4 lbs of quick
linio slacked in sulllciont water to kcop
from burning tho vines, strain beforo
mixing to prevent clogglngof sprajer.
Spray early, just beforo tho leaves
start. Again after tho follago and
his plants this may bo avoided and
tho right element of plant nutriment
applied. Selonco has figured this all
out, if wo would but heed tho lessons
and learn all that wo could by inves
tigation. Wo think that some of our pcoplo
havo produced a lino growth of vines
by heavy applications of stable manure
and found n fruitless result and think
that ifacompost liadbecn applied with
more of tho clement of nitrogen in It
to sustain tho bearing of fruit that tho
results might havo been far different.
Tho soil should bo ono that will
thoroughly drain, for whllo grapes
willtakoup largo quanltles of molsturo
it will not tlirivo with too much
molsturo conllned near tho surface by
an impervious subsoil.
Father McCluro advocated placing
stones, old shoes, bones and tho like
about tho baso of tho vine.
This would In part provide for tho
drainage. As a multeh Mr. Chaso al
ways provided a covering of lino earth
on his grounds and I have examined
his grounds, when others wcro

Of pruning wo aro constrained to
liolloe that many people do not un
derstand tho purpose for which It is
done, henco mako a sad mistake whon
they attempt it. Tho vino puts forth
tho brunch each year that blossoms
and bears tho fruit. This branch Is
tho vino from which tho next j ear's
shoots repeats tho forces. So in fol
lowing an Individual vino the fruit
would 1)0 farther and farther from tho
parent vino each year, if not cut back.
Or if all this growth was cut oil' the
growth of vino might bo lino but no
fruit would bo found. A memberof our
society onco did that very trick and
"wondered why" until a friend o.x
lained It. Prune after tho oaves aro
shed, but boforo tho balmy days start
tho now life, if you can. But don't
put it oil till tho leaf has attained full
growth. Don't bo seared if you aro
delayed till the sap bus started, for
tho watery sap lost will not materially
injuro if other conditions aro favora
ble Cut back to one, two or three
"buds of last jear'sgrowth.
And when your grapes havo formed
or set, then occasionally pinch or cut
aw a long branches beyond tho fruit
and thus conscrvo tho strength of the
vino for tho fruit.
Whon grapos aro ncarlj full grown,
or at least half grown, Back them to

Our program committeohas given us

thoy arc liko an unpruned vino so
interlocked by cross branches that
they aro not easily separated., and
also tho dlseussisn of them would

it must bo continually given, "lino up

Both of theso necessary aids to tho
successful vino dresser, depends on
many other things that go oelore,
such as soil, location, variety and
tho end In view. But In all cases tho
cultivation should bo faithfully done

In tho lust six months tho work of
tho Leaguo has been carried into

doubtless tho example of Chicago will
Inspire other cities to similar legisla
tion. It is interesting to noto that In tho
symposium of opinions advanced by
prominent business men on tho ovlls
of eigarotto smoking is tho following
from Cashier: C. N. Gillette, of tho
First National bank: "Ono thing
which has broken up tho reign of tho
cignrette, as far as our boys arc con
cerned, Is the strenuous objection of
tho non-smokers to associate with
tho young men who reek of tho nico

a detriment to tho business interests

National bank, women can consider
that emancipation from tho evil
