The Darlington Memorial.
We have received from the Hon.
James F. Byrnes, member of Con
gress from South Carolina, a copy,
of the Congressional Record of Sep
tember 16 containing an account, of
the consideration o:f resolution pro
viding for the- erection of a, memo
rial to Joseph J. Darlington. The
resolution was introduced by Sena
tor Brandegee, of Connecticut, and
read as follows:
"Resolved, etc.', That the Chief of
Engineers, United States Army, be,
and is hereby, authorized and di
rected to select a suitable^site and to
.grant permission for: the erection on.
public grounds of the United States
in the City of Washington, District,
of Columbia, .other than those of the
'Capitol, the Library of Congress, the
'White House, and the Mall, of a
memorial to the late Joseph J. Dar
lington, a leader of the Washington
Bar, as a . gift to the people of the
City of Washington: Provided, That
the site crosen and the design of.
the memorial Ashall be approved by
the Joint Library Committee of Con
:gress, with the advice of the Com- ,
mission of Fine Arts; that it shall be
erected under the supervision of the
Chief of Engineers, and* that the
United States shall be put to no ex
pense in or by the erection of tb?
The form of the memorial ydeter
:nuned upon by the; friends of Mr. j '
? Darlington, for w^om the Hon. Mil- 1
-ton E. Ailes was acting, and approv
ed of by the Fine Arts Commission '
is a public drinking fountain,, and. '
?the site? upon which it is to be 1
erected is in Judiciary Park. In his i
letterto Colonel Sherrill, of the En- 1
^ineers, he said :
"It is considered most appropriate I
io place this fountain in\ Judiciary J
Square. There is an excellent place 1
for it . in the center of the angle ]
made by the Court, of Appeals ^
Building and the District Supreme
Court Building. Mr. Darlington's law
office was directly opposite this place
on Fifth Street. For more than one I
third of a century his work daily 1
took him through that c?rnqr of Ju- 0
??ciary Square." ? ^ 1
The wishes of Mr. Ailes and his i
. associates will be. complied with and <
there the Memorial will be placed. <
The artist for the memorial is Mr. 1
C. P. Jennevein, of New- York city, 1

? and without objection. It was sent
to the House just on the eve^of ad
journment and too late for action
- previous to adjournment. Mr. Byrnes
"The resolution did not come over
.to the House until "three days before
adjournment. T endeavored to"\ se
cure consideration for it, but there
. was not in the City a quorum of the
Library Committee, to which it was
referred. At the regular Cession in
December I intend to make it my
business to see'that this resolution is
"I think you will agree with . me
that in the parks of Washington
there are so many heroes on horse
back, that it is well to perpetuate
the memory of a man who, in peace
ful pursuits, contributed to the wel
fare of so many of the people
among whom he lived."
Mr. Byrnes will press the passage
cf the resolution at the next session
7 of Congress and we have no doubt
that it will go through the House

A remarkable tribute ' to Doctor
Sunshine, one of the eminent mem
jers of the tribe of Mother Nature,
aas been paid by the physicians at-:
tending the annual convention of
;he New England Tuberculosis Asso
ciation. Two experts declare that the
?fficacy of pure sunshine in curing
jone, glaudular and even\pulmonary
tuberculosis, has been demonstrated
)ff the disease and become fine phy
Nature has always been the great
physician for tuberculosis, but it is
lews to most of us that sunshine is
;he chief restorative. The general be
ief has prevailed that it was fresh
iir^ that gave strength to the worn
;issues and nursed, them back to
?ealth. Perhaps the statement of the
Slew England doctors does not mean
;hat fresh air is any less indispen
sable, but simply places a new em
phasis upon the value of sunshine.
With, a sick person there is an in
stinct .that impels the presence of
sunshine, and obviously this is the
roiee pf Nature pointing the way.
Since it is true that sunshine is^ the
jest medicine for the tubercular,
sn't it logical that sunshine is also
i preventive? Does not the well per
son need sunshine to keep the body
n condition to ward off tuberculosis
;erms?i In our machine civilization
sunshine becomes less and less in de
nand. Millions rarely ever feel it
igainst their skin for a half liour a
lay, and as for sun baths, they have
jone out of existence. The informa
;iqn of the , tuberculosis experts
should be taken as a warning. People
)Ught to get out,in the sunshine.
They need it just as fresh air. It
)races them up, energizes them, and
jest of all, it builds up their tissues
igainst the ever-lurking devitalizing
jerms. An apple a day, .plenty of sun
shine, and fresh air remain the sur
ist road to health. They are the im

mills,, in proportion to spindles, ac
cording to the latest report from the

During August, South Carolina

Of activity -per spindle. The average
for the United States was 217, for

Your Next Year's Garden.
A' thought should be given to the
garden plot for next year. If the gar
den soil needs more vegetable mat
ter, now is the time to supply it.
Some time will be required for straw,
leaves, coarse manure and? other
sources of humus to:1decay arid be
come useful' in soil. Apply this ma
terial, or several if necessary, to
make the garden soil better.
Wherevthe. soil-is sour, or inclined I
to break up cloddy, lime might ?b?ne- j
fit it. If considerable straw is spread
over it, or if weeds are turned undet
lime is most likely to be of benefit to
the soil by neutralizing the. acid and
causing the clods to pulverize. If ma*
nure is used, then apply no lime; for
lime destroys the manure.
After applying straw .or other j
vegetable matter . the garden soil'
should be turned .early to permit the
vegetation to decay so the soil will j
be supplied with humus in the spring.
