Accord ing to the report of the commission, the planters have only themselves to blame. They have given the soil no rest for years past, nor practiced any rotation of crops. Confident of the proverbial richness of their soil, they have applied no fertilizers. The enfeebled plants have fallen a prey to a disease known as Closeporium masarum, which Is gradually gaining c foothold In all plantations. The re port closes with the observation that the disease is successfully fought by a proper application of fertilizer to the soil. Scientific American. Kew York. April S.

Call at my store, 1202 North Arno street. New York. April 8. For the first time In American turf history racing will be put strictly on the British plnn this year. The fund of $300,000 which has been raised by enthusl rsts in the sport is said to be. but a mere beginning toward putting the game on a solid basis once more. According to one of the olllcials, who stands high in the Jockey club, the plan is to have the older and more noted stakes perpetuated. Clas sics like the futurity will be kept up. The associations are not expected to depend altogether on the gate money as revenue. Instead, a system like the Knglish bookmaking method Is being developed, and as soon as the tiothum patrons become accustomed to the Idea It is believed that there will be no hitch In making wagers. The system provides for a certain sum of money to be posted In ad vance, with bets to be made "on the nod," as In Britain. The awaited decision by the Jockey club stewards as to the dates for the summer races on metropolitan tracks was announced following a meeting here today. Approval is given to five associations for meets in May, June, July and August. The an nouncement o.ssures the followers of racing of at least rive meetings this summer, but it Is noticeable that no Ualie for autumn meetings are given, and it is supposed that the fall meet ings will depend in part at least upon the success of the Hummerraces. The dates approved are as follows: Westchester Racing association, Thursday, May 13, to Wednesday, June 2. Brooklyn Jockey club, Thursday, June 3, to Wednesday, June 23.

An improved whole wheat breakfast food, cleanly made, easily digested. It supplies the nutritive wants of the body. Kansas City. April f. If John !. Kling. considered by many to be the best catcher baseball has ever pro duced, adhere faithfully to hlH firmly avowed determination to pass up the game, he will be one of the very few national pastim rs of great mer it and fame who have yuit the sport while at the zenith of their playing power. Every winter the papers are full of stories of star players who i have played their laft season. But John Kling says it's none of; the "farewell" tour game In his. It's simply a little thing of busl-j ness with John (J., a little matter ofj heaping up the golden coin a bit faster than he can see the pile grow while weurlng a mask and wlndpad. Many are the tales of ball players who have business interests to re qu'to their attention sufficiently to kc.-p them out of baseball, especially when said baseball pays them Juicy thousands, but these tabs usually llourlsh In winter and die away as the I spring approaches. John Kling Is an. exception. According to Kling's own figures he is worth In the neighbor- hood of $90,000. And he's made It i all himsef. John estimates that in the last six years he has averaged a taving of $3,000 a year from his base-, ball salary. There's a sum of $1S.- 000 in savings from six years of na- tlonal pustiming. Kling has $r.0,0"0 ( tied up in two billiard halls in this city, and he says that In the last; three years he has made at least j $15,000 in the billiard business. Five years ago Kling bought a fiO-acre tract of ground Just outside the city limits here. He paid $5,0"0 for the tract. To day the city Is figuring on extending the limits beyond Kling's property, and John values the SO acres at $30. 00ft. He has other real estate which he values at $8,000. Here's a table that Kling himself arranged: Billiard halls . $50,000 Other city real estate 8,000 Fifty-acre farm 30,000 Total '. $88,000 Kling has been seriously consider ing the passing up of professional baseball ever since his return from the last world's series. Several months ago Kling leased the second, third, fourth and fifth floors of the Houston building on Walnut street, right In the heart of the business dis trict. Ho sunk a lot of money In improvements and put in an elegant billiard hall on the second floor. He has the figures to show that the rent from the other three floors will be sufficient to give him his billiard hall free und $150 a month to boot. Kling has worked up an excellent billiard business in this place, a business that he figures will make him $150,000 in ten years. And that Is the reason he has decided to cut out the baseball. He desires to stay here, keep his trade going in the summer and watch the shekels come In. It was long about Christmas last that John began seriously to figure on remaining here. In letters to Johnny Evers and Steinfeldt he said he probably had winged his last pill to them. Iiist Saturday John reach ed his decision. He is done with professional baseball. If the proposed city league Is organized Kling will captain the Missouri Athletic club nine. Sunday ball will be played. John will catch, and he says he has a -hankering desire to do some pitch ing. So Kansas City fans may have the opportunity to see one of the greatest backstops In the history of baseball in a new position on rubber. fancy shoots. "Hut what if the Cubs should hit a bad t.Iump. ana tneir pennani chances he slipping away?" a friend asked Kling. "What if you could pull your old club out of the hole by again donning the glove and the mask, wouldn't you go back?" "No, sir," said Kling, with a nod of his head, and a faint hint of a be lying smile; "H'8 a matter of busi ness. Why, I've already bet two suits of clothes and several hats that I won't play ball with Chicago this year. I might go back next year 1 don't know about that but I'm go ing to stay out this year. This posi tion here looks mighty good to me, and I'm going to give It a try." "Hut suppose the Chicago man agement should make you a big offer. Suppose they should offer you a blg- per salary to play ball?" persisted the interviewer, "wouldn't you get back in the game then?"

It Is learned that the Italian government, realizing that the murder of Lieutenant Joseph Pctrosino will be followed by the strictest surveillance of Italian Immi grants In the United States, intends to offer to co-operate in the pro posed institution of a special police service on board all emigrant ships. It will also move to alter the pres ent passport regulations so as to pre vent forgery, and perhaps pass n spe cial law enforcing the use of a spe cial identification document by all emigrants to America, Proposals on these lines seem to have been made during the visit of the American Immigration cotumis sion two years ago, hut the Italian government did not then look upon them with favor.

For purposes of econ omy, one animal frequently serves for two or three grinning sailor boys.

"For riding or driving?" asked the liveryman. "We'll be goin' aboard of him." re sponded the sailor. "What kind of a horse d i you want?" continued the liveryman.
