LEMON FOR GRAFTERS.
Government Fruit Kxperta Expected
an Oranne From Ciraftlns; Teata.
Seeretary of Agriculture Wilson has
been banded the lemon, according to a
special dispatch from Washington to
the Philadelphia Press. It came from
his own experimental nursery. Much
to the surprise of officials of his de
partment they have on their hands a
tree filled with lemons when they were
Several months ago Professor B. G.
Galloway, chief of the bureau of the
plant inelustry. and Herbert W. Web
ber, his assistant, began experiments
in grafting a Florida orange upon a
Japanese orange tree known as La
Foliata. Their object was to get an
orange tree that would grow in a cli
mate cooler than that of Florida and
southern California. The Japanese La
Foliata is barely and produces orauges
in cool climates, and it was believed a
hybrid might be proeiuced that woulel
be just the thing to introeiuee orange
growing in states farther north than
Instead of orauges the hybrid has
producevl lemons, a fruit almost equal
ly valuable anel one of which Cali
fornia, accoreling to statistics, has pro
eluceel more than 00 per cent in the
Unite'd States. When the fruit was
ready to pick the other day several of
the supposeel oranges were taken off
the tree anel peeleel. It was found that
they were thin skinned, and they gave
every appearance of an orange until
one of the assistants just one the
puckering of whose lips told the tale
plainer than his words, exclaimed: "It
isn't nn orange at all! The blamed
tree has handed us a lemon!"
Frofessor Galloway was much Inter
estetl. He, too, tasted of the fruit and
found It was as sour as a lime. He hur
rienl to Secretary Wilson at the discov
ery and maele him a glass of lemonade.
The fruit looks like an or:wge in
shape anel color, anel only in its sour-'
ness is it different from the sweeter
product. This tree, it is believed, will
grow lemons as far north as Tennes
see, North and South Carolina, Arkan-'
sas and other states in the same lati-1
tude. The tree resists a temperature .
of 15 degrees above zero, in such a test '
only a few buds on the topmost limbs '
The department scientists are puz-
zleel and are investigating the cause.
The Japanese orange is not as sweet
as the Florida or California orange.
but no person around the department
expected such a result.
NATION OF REDS.
We Are Becoming; So Became of On

D. S. Marvin, aged eighty-one years
and a student of nature, of local celeb
rity In Shelby, O., says, according to
the Cincinnati Enquirer: "I sit in my

note that about 75 per cent of those

thajt in Europe we find white men, In
Asia yellow men and In Africa black

mainly owing to the climate In which
they live. But deeper and beyond this

Hundreds of lady scalp specialists and hair elressers use and recommend Newbro's Herpicide, instead
of products of their own manufacture upon which a much larger profit could be made. They claim that Her
picide makes friends fer them and gives much better satisfaction. Some hair dressers use Herpicide for ob
stinate cases only, but why not use the best first?
Herpicide is a delightful diessing that can be used when there Is no disease of the hair or scalp, and
as an actunl remedy for dandruff, itching scalp and falling hair it stands in a class singularly its own.
Many ladies objejct to a gummy and sticky hair dressing, er one that is full of sedimentary chemicals
intended to dye the hair. The marked preference for a cle-an and dainty preparation, particularly one that
overcomes excessive oiiiness and leaves the hair light and fluffy, is reflected in the enormous sale of New
bro's Herpicide. Discriminating ladies become enthusiastic over its refreshing quality and exquisite frag
rance. It stejps itching of the scalp almost, instantly.
