Vineless Potato a Complete
Success <
A half bushel of sawdust a dash
of chetnical solution and fifteen po
tatoes carefully enveloped with the
sawdust will enable the average
householder to grow a bushel of
tubers on his housetop or in his
eel ar within sixty days This pro
cess has been discovered and elabor
ated by W D Dart of Great Falls
Mont Moreover the grower will
have no potato bugsto contend with
he will have no turning but of the
soil at certain intervals and there
will be no contest with grubworms
The product of Mr Darsts process
is termed the viheless potato from
the fact that grown under these
apparently unnatural conditions
there is no surface vegetation Be
cause of this each potato in the saw
dust is enabled to produce at least
leasto
At the Oakland Plaza in the rear
of the Oakland hotel in Chicago
Mr Darst disclosed the methods of
growing potatoes by his system
Operating on the theory that the
presence of surface vegetation was
only a method of securing nourish
ment and in reality sapped the vital
ity of the tuber Mr Darst experi
mented more than six years and
found he could overcome this seem
ingly natural course on the part of
the plant by supplying it artificially
with its needs
By employing sawdust peat
straw or any other i earth product
that would permit of the circulation
of air moisture and heat and the
application of solutions of various
salts he discovered that a single po
tato would multiply itself by attach
ing to itself from twelve to sixteen
other potatoes of approximately the
same dimensions without throwing
off any of its energy above ground
Packed in loosely arranged bins
permitting the free access of air and
arranging in rows six inches above
each other with an allowance of one
cubic foot of sawdust to the seed
ling Mr Darst has demonstrated
the rapidity of growth and the pro
portions that the potatoes may at
tain by showing that within sixty
days fifteen potatoes will produce a
bushel In the character of his
experiments and the success that has
attended upon them Mr Darst has

cision establishing the entire inno
cenceof the accused man and the
Ministry later deciding to present
an urgent bill in Parliament re
storing Dreyfus to the army with
advanced rank and otherwise giving
reparationI
The decision of the court was a
foregone conclusion Exhaustive in
quiries had completely demolished
the i accusation against Dreyfus
showing that the real culprit was
9Major Count Esterhazey The de i
cisioir therefore annulled the con 1
demnation of the Rennes court 1
martial and ordered that the ac
quittal Be posted and published
throughout France

tract dspecial session
special at the Elysee I
Palace under President Fallieres andJ

course Two bills were formulated i
which will be introduced in the
