-A. Seedless, Coreles
Everyone is familiar with the seed
less or navel orange, but the seedless
apple is a new fruit on the market.
This marvelops improvement iu the
common apple; fulfilling in letter as
in spirit the jest of the schoolboy,
who proclaimed that ''there ain't
going to be no jcpre," would seem to
indioate that the new apple will event
ually monopolize the markets of the
world, for reasons which the append
ed data clearly point out.
By way of illustration, it may be
paid that the seedless and coreless ap
ple follows closely the analogue pre
sented by the seedless orange, and is
in fact a prototype of the latter. Whoa
the Boedless orange was introduced to
the publio, it was regarded in the
light of a horticultural wonder, for if
there were no seeds, by what uncanny
method was this kind propagated.
Shrouded in a mystery such as this,
it required some little time for the
matter-of-fact virtues to impress them-,
selves ao3 the real merits of the frnifc
to become known; but once eaten, its
subtle qualities ".were forgotten, and
its advantages were quickly appre
ciated) and from that day to this the
old-fashioned variety, with its multi
plicity of seeds, has suffered severelyj
aviog been almost driven from the
market, and lofi, all but out of the
raoe. Now let us ascertain the real
difference between the two varieties
of the oranges, as the comparison will
serves useful purpose when, the old
and the new species of apples are
being similarly considered.; * The rea
son seedless oranges are universally
preferred to those that contain ovules
is not because any saving is effected,
but simply that the seeds are in the
way. The ordinary apple presents a
-wholly different aspect, for the seeds,
are inclosed in'hard pocket a that rep
resent at least one-fourth of the apple,
and whioh cannot be utilized in any
way as an article of food, whereas iu
tho seedless vnriety these disagreeable
features are entirely eliminated.
Still, what is more to the point of
economy, apples without seeas are
aiso wormless, for it is well known to
growers that worms in apples' obtain
their sustenance not from tho meat,
but from the seeds, hence it is evident
that if a worm was hatched in a seed
less apple, it could cot live.
The beginning of the seedless apple
dates back only a few years, and there
forests history is. necessarily brief.
All the. credit for the propagation of
the apple thus far belongs to Mr.
John F. Spanoer, of Grand Junction,
Gol., who Struck with fche success of
the( seedless orange, believed. that
similar results could he obtained with
After several years' exp?rimenta)
research he succeeded in producing
five trees"that bore seedless, careless
and wormless apples, and from this
little group there has ? budded two
thousand more trees, which at present
constitute the entire. seedless, apple
s took of the world; and from these two
thousand trees all. tho rest of tho
world must be supplied. It is esti
mated that these will have produced
about three, hundred and seventy-five
thousand nursery trees by the /fall of
1905, and that the following" year at
least two muliou five hundred thous
and'trees will furnish the supply.
Thare are many striking peculiar
ities in the development of the seed
less tree, as woil as in tho fruit. Ab
an instance, it.may bo cited that the
tree is blosBomlessj and while there ie
a stamen and a, very small quantity p)
pollen, exactly as in the blossofroi
the ordinary apple tree, yet the blos
som or flower itself is missing. The
photograph show? tho only bloom,
flower, or blossom that ever appears
on the seedless nppls tree.
The only thing that resembles c
blossom comes in .the form of oevera"
email green, leaves that grow around
the little apple to shelter it. It if

The origin of red hair has been dis
ouEsed more or less by scientists, but
without reaching a oonolusion more
definite than that concerning the ori
gin of man.
The Saxons and other northern
tribes were flaxen-haired, while Gauls
and those further south wore darker
haired. That red hair may have
been due to the blending of these two
types is quite possible. This is the
view taken by some who have given
the subject careful consideration.

Still Paying the Cost of War.
Port Arthur, tho Russian strong

The foi-t was besieged 217 days by
the Japanese, and the story of what
took place during that time is an
other fearful illustration ox the brutal
ity and costliness of war.
It appears from the latest dp; a at
hand that iu the ooutest for thin fort
the combined forces lost in killed and
wounded all of 150,000 men, while
there died from starvation, exposure
and disease over 10,000 in the two
The cost of this particular part of
the campaign it is almost impossible
to estimate, but sb near as can be ap
proximated, all of $50,000,000 has
been uBed by the two armies in the op
erations about the fortifications.
While there have been longer sieges
in modern history, none have been so
bloody and apparently so useless.
Port Arthur belongs neither to Russia
nor Japan. It is owned by China, and
is an integral part of that empire.
Even with victory renting upon thti
flag of Japan, there is neither legally
nor morally a single title to the fort or
the land on whioh it stands that ahe
Why then the bitter war and the
frightful loss of life? It is said if
both the warring nations would have
consented to arbitration, there is no
question but that the judges would
have ordered Japan home and Russia
to leave Hanohnria, and given to China
that whioh is her own. Under all the
ciroumstanoes does not the loss of more
than one-tenth of a million of brave
men seem pitiful?

Elton T. Thurber of Detroit, who
was once a newspaper man in that
oity, but who has abandoned that field
and taken to the prosaio occupation of
"selling flavoring extracts, was at the
Plankington bouse, the centre of a
story-telling group. ?
"Tho head of out firm had a trying
experience last Fourth of July,"' said
E?t. Thurber, as the conversation
slackened. "He thought he would
play a funny joke on hio family, so a
day or so before the holiday he bought
one of these candy boxes made *n imi
tation of acao??? cracker. He se
creted this in the pantry, where he
thought it would be safe.
"But his little-son, about 8 years
old, discovered the fireorakor, aud also
discovered that it was filled with can
dy. So he helped himself to the con
tents and finally finding the box emp
ty, he made way. with it and substitu
ted a real cannon cracker.
"Fourth of July oame and the head
of the family, smiling broadly at his
approaching joke, oame down stairs
and placing his big firecracker in the
middle.of the breakfast table. Then,
regardless of hiB wife's expostulations,
touched a tnatoh to the fc^e, never
thinking bot what it was the candy
box on the table.
"His son and heir astutely vanished
from the scene about this time. In
about thirty seconds there.was an ex
plosion that wrecked a once happy
breakfast table, and one hour later the
^vorei spanked boy in Detroit bad sob
