Masque and Dagger Club Will Pre-
sent Popular Play
The Masque and Dagger Club of
W. S. C. will present "The Man From
Home" in the college auditorium
January 9. The play was originally
scheduled for December 13, but it
was deemed advisable to advance the
date and by so doing assure a greater
success for hte production.
"The Man From Home" was first
played at the Studebaker Theater in
Chicago with William Hodge as Dan
iel Voorhees Pike, the man from
home. The play scored such a great
success in Chicago that is ran there
for an entire year. This was in 1907.
In 1908 William Hodge, with the
same cast, opened at the Astor The
ater in New York City. The drama
met with wonderful success In New
York and was so well received that
it ran for a year at the Astor. Dur
ing the past season "The Man From
Home" was played in Washington,
D. C.i where it met with its usual
The play was written by Harry
Leon Wilson and Booth Tarkington.
It tells the story of an American girl
of wealth who has aspirations to be
come a noblewoman, but through the
wise manipulations of Pike, a shrewd
typical American lawyer, she is
brought to see that her popularity
among the English nobility hinges
only on her wealth. The themo is a
timely one with which all Americans
should be familiar, since it shows us
how vast sums of our national
wealth are being transferred to Eu
rope through international titled
marriages. The scene of the drama
fa laid in Sorrento, a city in South
Everett R. Jinnett is to play the
lead as Daniel Voorhees Pike, the
man from Kokomo, Indana. Mr. Jin
nett is well known in college dra
matic and debating circles. Students
of last year will recall Mr. Jinnett's
splendid interpretation of Bob Acres
in "The Rivals." Grover McDougall,
who has participated in several col
lege productions in the past, is to
play the part of Earl of Hawcastle.
Goldene Allen, Lee Lewis, and Jot
Wetzel are other members of the
cast who are well known to all. The
leading woman, Miss Nellie Northrup,
although appearing here for the first
time, comes to us with a very com
mendable high school dramatic repu
tation. Miss Augusta Roziskey, who
is coaching the production, is very
optimistic concerning the success of
the play and believes she has a well
chosen cast. The cast is as follows--

Olympia, Dec. 19. —When fruit
trees are sold with a warranty that
they are of a certain varfety, the
three years statute of limitations
does not commence to run until the
trees have time to come in bearing,
the supreme court ruled yesterday,
in its decision in the Yakima county
case of W. D. Ingalls versus H. E.
Angell and wife.
This decision establishes a doc
trine of great importance 10 orchard*
lsts and nurserymen. Ingalls, a
nurseryman, purchased 500-odd
peach trees' from tho Angells on the
representation, he says, that they
were of the Carman variety, and sold
them to Burt Fletcher, an orchard
ist. Fletcher found the trees were
not Caimans, sued Ingalls and got
Ingalls' expenses In paying the
judgment, attorneys' fees and costs
totaled $2306.45, and he brought
suit against the Angells for this
amount. The Yakima county super
ior court threw the case out on a de
murrer because it had not been
brought within three years from the
time the sale was made.

HOW TO MAKE STARCH
FROM POTATO CULLS
The Potato clubs which the de
partment of agriculture has been or
ganizing to teach the young people of
America to grow potatoes were pri
marily intended for boys. Certain
girls, however, became interested,
enrolled, and have done particularly
well, not only in management of crop
but in manufacturing home-made
potato starch out of the unmarket
able culls of the vegetable.
Each girl when she enrolls in this
club work, which now is being taken
up by 18,000 young people, Is given
a recipe for making home-made po
tato starch. The office of farm man
agement's specialist who is in
charge of the potato club work sup
plies each new girl member with a
printed copy, which reads as follows:
Equipment needed—Two clean
galvanized tubs, large dish pan, one
cylindrical grater, and plenty of
v ater and wiping cloths.
Take five bushels of potato culls.
Wash them thoroughly by the use of
plenty of water and a small scrub
Use one tub for cleaning potatoes
and the other for the gratings. Seat
yourself in a convenient place be
tween the two tubs, with dish pan
and grater in your lap.
Without removing the skin, grate
your clean potatoes from right-hand
tub into the dish pan, empty pan of
gratings when necessary into the
v ell-cleaned tub to your- left; con
tinue this operation until your left
hand tub is a trifle over half full.

potato gratings until nearly full, stir
well so as to saturate every particle
Remove all peelings and floatint
material from top of water; allow
nib to stand overnight, so that starch
will settle to bottom and all pulp and
potato skin will rise to the top of the
•*ater. Remove all water carefully

the dark formation and sediment on
top of the layer of starch.
Pour a fresh supply of water over
starch again; stir again so as to
rinse all particles of starch well; al
low to stand for about eight hours.
Remove water from the top, the
layer of pulp, etc. In doing so be
careful not to waste the starch.
Continue this process with new ap
plications and careful stirring, let
ting it stand each time—as many
times as it is necessary to effect a
complete separation of starch from
the pulp, peeling, and sediment of
the potatoes. It will usually take
four or five washings.
Potato starch is a healthful food
and can be used in at least a dozen
different ways for food purposes In
making puddings, salads, milk
dishes, etc. It is both an easy and
economical method of providing a
valuable food product for the aver

OLD PLANTS ADVERTISED
UNDER NEW NAME
Washington, D. C, Dec/ . —There
has recently been a considerable
amount of advertising, by the press
and otherwise, of two beans for
which highly extravagant claims are
made, and for the seed of which ex
orbitant prices are being asked. One
of these is being advertised under
the name of the Shahon pea, with the
absurd claim that on three and one
half acres this plant produced 7 0
tons of hay and 350 bushels of seed.
The Shahon pea is nothing more
nor less than the plant properly
known as the Asparagus bean, or
Yard-long bean. It is a close relative
of the cow-peain fact, by most bot
anists considered a mere variety. In
experimental tests with upwards of

20 varieties of Asparagus beans, this
department reached the conclusion
that none of them could POBB
compete with the better varieties if
cowpeas as a forage crop. The stem!
as a rule, are much more slender and
vining, and the long pods, which li«
on the ground, can not be harvest
by machinery. None of these 20 va
rieties is as productive, either in
herbage or in pods, as the better va
rieties of cowpeas.
The Aspargus bean derives its
name from the fact that the youn*
green pods, when used as a vegetable
—have somewhat the flavor of as
paragus. As a vegetable, the As"
paragus bean may come into some
what more general use than it has in
the past, but as a forage crop it has
but little merit. Seed of the Shahon
pea, which apparently 1 8 the com
monest variety of Asparagus bean—
namely, that having pinkish-buff
seeds— is offered by the advertisers
at $5.00 per pound. The same vari
ety is offered by seedsmen in France
where the bean is more or less com
monly grown, for 25 cents a pound
Another plant which has been
thoroughly tested, both by the de
partment and the experiment stations
—namely, the Jack bean—is also be
ing extravagantly advertised under
the name of the Giant Stock Pod
bean, or the Wataka bean, the seed
being quoted at $15 per bushel. This
bean has been fully treated of in
Bureau of Plant Industry Circular
No. 110. which can be obtained from
the department free, upon request.
While the Jack bean produces an
enormous amount of beans per acre,
they are not relished by stock, and
no satisfactory means of utilizingl
them has yet been discovered.
