Russian Bear Now Up Against Truly
THE STAIDEST PAPERS STIRRED UP
A Storm of Indignation Among All

London, By Cable.-The Associated
Press interviewed many prominent
persons connected and in close touch
with the government relative to the
seizure of British volunteer fleet in
'the Red Sea.
As a result of these inquiries there
is shown to be a remarkably hostile
feeling against Russia, of a strength
and a bitterness almost without pre

a British minister compelled to defend
the interests of British commerce and
thc honor of the flag, and acting with
unhesitating firmness and prompitude
which recall the strongest days of the
national policy, he has justified the
trust of the country. While not one
rash word should be said which would
have the effect of increasing the ten
sion of anxious and dangerous inter

character or to minimize the risks of
the situation which has arisen. We
hope and believe that a solution of the
difficulty may still be found in the

Randolph's Wheat Crop.
Asheboro, Special.-An unprecedent
ed crop of wheat has been gathered
from the farms in Randolph county
this year. One r>? our roller mills
bought from wagons on Saturday last
more than 1,000 bushels, paying $1 per
bushel cash for it. The high price paid
for last year's crop of cotton has in
duced a number of our farmers to ex
periment with it this year. We have a
number of acres planted within the
corporate limits of the town that is
looking fine and beginning to bloom
that is quite a novelty in this vicinity
as very few of our home folks ever
saw it growing before.

Statements made by local cotton mills

similar action may ensue here, though
notices will not be posted this week.

Washington, Special.-General Davis,
governor general of the Panama Canal

Davis says that this wiH be perhaps-the
largest order for mosquito netting ever

them for contraband of war, is causing

rights and neither fears or anticipates
international complications. Indeed;
some of the powers may have been
sounded by Russia on the subject.

Members of the diplomatic corps

Spraying the trees aud vines should
be made a portion of the routine work,
whether disease appears or not, as a
protection to the neighborhood. An
orchard may become affected and not
show such diseased conditions until
the next year, when more work will
then be necessary to keep the trees
from attack or injury.
F. H. Bullard asks Green's Fruit
Grower to publish .1 list of the varie-,
ties of apples that.bear fruit soon af
ter being planted. Whether fruit trees
bea'r soon or not depends somewhat
upon the soil, methods of culture, cli
mate and other conditions. It is a
fact, however, that some varieties bear
fruit sooner after planting than others
under ordinary conditions. Among
those varieties that have a tendency
to beal" fruit soon after plantin?: are:
Yellow Transparent. Banana, King,
Bismark. Tiees which are grawin;
?rapidly do not come into fruiting so
quick as those trees which arc soma
what stunted in their growth.
ADVICE TO TREE PLANTERS.
Trees set out this season should have
their branches cut back move than
two-thirds. This rule applies to all
kinds of fruit trees recently planted.
Do not hesitate to cut back branches
to within six inches of the trunk, and
' in the case of peach trees cut off
the branches close to the trunk and
cut the trunk back three feet from
the'ground. The severe pruning at the
time of planting seems to the novice
to be severe, but it is the kind of
pruning that all newly planted trees
should receive. The tree you have re
ceived from the nursery has all the
top left on and it possesses from 100
to 500 buds, which is far too many.
All the buds you need on the top of
newly planted fruit trees is enough
to form the head of the tree which
should never have over four to six
main branches. Therefore, if you cut
the head of the tree back closely the
few buds remaining make a vigorous
growth, but if the buds and all the top
are left on the numerous buds make
a small ?.'owth, and the top thus
formed is thick aud dense, requiring
very severe pruning in future years.
NEEDS OF THE GARDEN.
'Are there fruits in your garden?
No garden is complete without a row
or two of dwarf pears growing through
it. Dwarf pears can be plauted three
feet apart in the row with the rows
far enough apart so the garden can be
planted without difficulty. There
. should be a row or two devoted to cur
r?nts, gooseberries and raspberries. If I
. your garden is restricted in size you
can plant the grape vines against the
house or the barn, or along, fences.
There should be a strawberry bed in
every garden. You should plant a few
/.strawberry plants'" every spring in
.April or May. Do notf'?ely--entirely
upon the old strawberry bed. IfTy??r
plant a few strawberries every spring
?you will- have a continuous supply,
[J^herwise yoii will not No garden is
complete without rows of asparagus
or without a few plants of rhubarb
or pieplant. There should also be a
few plants of sage, which may be as
easily grown as weeds. Perhaps your
garden should be enriched a little. If
you have plenty of room it may be
an advantage to let your garden patch
rest and start a new patch in another
GROWING GARDEN PEAS.
The money in growing garden peas
is in the early and late-sorts, the me
dium varieties bringing low prices, as
a rule. Nearly all market gardeners
.confine their operations in pea grow
ing to the early sorts, which is often
a mistake, and particularly so if one
has a good market for the reason that
many people will buy the late sorts
who will not eat the mid-season va
rieties because they are likely to be
tough and hard. On the grounds of
the writer the Juno, shown in the il
lustration, has proved to be by far the
best of the late varieties, although it
has been grown in many sections as
the one variety for the main crop. The
plants are dwarf and require little or
no staking, and are meit remarkable
producers. The pods grow in pairs
and are filled with from seven to nine
peas each. The flavor of the peas is of
the finest, which flavor is retained
even when a little old. This feature,
together with the fact that they also
retain their green color, rarely turn
ing yellow, even when very old,
makes the variety peculiarly valuable
to the market gardener.
Our Beacon 1.1 Rh ts.
There are 9000 burning lights and
signals stretched along the American
coasts, forming a perfect link, so that
the navigator never need be beyond
sight of one of the beacons. One
thousand of these are located on the
Atlantic Coast, 1500 are scattered
along the rivers and inland water
ways, 500 on the Great Lakes, and 200
on the Pacific Coast Of the grand to
tal, including lighthouses of different
classes, buoys, beacons and danger sig
uals, 3000 are lighted, giving forth
their warnings at night time. Of these
a score or more throw a beam of 100,
000 candle power. To maintain the
lighthouse service a corps of over 4000
men is constantly employed and a fleet
or more than fifty vessels. No service
in the world exceeds our own in com
pleteness and efficiency. A modern
American lighthouse of the first class
costs between $100,000 and $200,000.
and of this about one-third is spent for
the electric light and apparntus alone.

PARIS GREEN ON POTATOES
Most potato growers use paris green
too strong wheu spraying potato
plants to subdue the beetle, declares
the indianapolis News. Experiments
have shown thut one-half pound of Hie
paris gre. : to eacb barrel water is
sufficient and will be strong enough for
the season through if the season is
started early enough to destroy the
beetles while they are small and com
partively tender. If the paris green is
combined with Bordeaux mixture for
spraying double the quantity may be
used. There can be no injury to the
vines if the proportions applied are us
' Cowpens are easily grown and will
do well on any well prepared soil
that is not t. > sad and wet. The crop
is especially suited to the loams and
to the clay soils that are high, well
drained and well worked.
Soils that fail to produce profitable
crops of corn, clover, wheat or timothy
will often yield a fair crop of cowpcas.
Break the land deep; workthesoi.' clown
fine; get the seedbed free from clods;
make it compact and be sure it con
tains abundant moisture to germinate
the peas at once. Plant after corn
planting is over this season, hear tue
middle of June. By that time Hie soil
is warm and the peas will grow at
once. This late planting gives oppor
tunity to destroy the annual weeds
that appear, thus preventing their in
terfering with the cowpeas later in tue
If the peas are intended for hay the
last cultivation should be followed
with the drag. The surface should be
perfectly level and no clods should
be allowed to be scattered to interfere
with the mower when cutting. If tho
surface is not made level, cuttir.g and

saw about twenty or twenty-two inches
long. Then lf.y the stick down on the

end of the twine through the hole and

that when the string is drawn tight
around the fodder one of these knots
on the other end of the string may be
adjusted into this notch to bold it
there. The string should be about
three feet long. When the bundles are
in their proper place in the mow, re
lease the tie and the tie is ready for
use again. If several of the ties are
used a person can put away a wagon
load of fodder at one time. If the ties
are taken care of properly they will
last for several years, then new strings
may be needed. We have used those
ties for several years and find them
handier than twine strings.-Walter E.
Reed, in The Epitoinist. ...
TREATMENT OF THE SOIL.
Just how far one may be able to
crop the soil and return to it the mini
mum amount of fertilizer and do it
profitably depends upon the soil. It
is known that certain plants'will sup
ply the needed nitrogen to the soil
much cheaper than it can be supplied
by fertilizers; it bas also beeu demon
strated that the almost unlimited sup
plies of potash in the soil may be re
leased and made available to the plants
by a proper system of soil cultivation.
Hence, by these methods, the cost of
supplying fertilizers to the soil is ma
It must be confessed, however, that
the usual way of fertilizing is to sup
ply the soil what manure the stock
make during the winter with, perhaps,
a small quantify of commercial fertil
izer. Further, too often it is the case
that the fertilizer which would be
only a fair quantity for a dozen acre?
is spread over twenty. A bushel o:?
shelled corn will take from the soil
about one pound of nitrogen, one-qnar
ter of a pound of potash and something
over half a pound of phosphoric acid
besides what'is consumed by the foli
age of the plant, yet the usual appli
cation of fertilizers, in any form, is
hardly as much as this to the area of
soil which produces the bushel of
In other words, most of us take
from tn.* soil more than we give lo it
in. the form of fertilizers, when we
should furnish enough fertilizer to
grow the plant complete, seed or fruit
and branch and enough more to allow
for leeching and evaporation and the
keeping up of the fertility iu the soil.
When we begin to fertilize on that plan
then t.ie crops will pay well.
There would appear to be no longer
any doubt that rays are giveu off by
active muscles and nerves. Dr. Hugh
Walsham and Leslie Miller point out
that experiments are remarkably easy
to perform and are absolutely convinc
