WORLD ROSE GARDEN AN IDEAL REALM CREATED FOR THE QUEEN OF FLOWERS. | Fifty Thousand Rose Trees Blooming in One Famous Beauty Spot Their Beauty En- j hanced by the Aid of Artistic Landscape Gardening Hardy Varieties Are Adopted, ! t So As to Give a Permanence to the Ex hibit—The Entire Four Acres Will Be Heav ily Mulched for Winter, and Spring Forth in Perfect Beauty for the Great Carnival Next Season. A million roses will bloom at once in the vast rose garden at the World's Fair. That is guessing, of course, but the foundation of the guess is this: Four acres are set in strong and vigor ous rose trees. Thirty of the largest exhibitors have sent their choicest stock and each will strive for first place in the judgment of the jury and people. This vast rose garden with its 50,000 trees lies east of the great Palace of Agriculture. The warm eastern slope has been made more fertile than your garden or mine with rich compost and it will be a sight worth traveling far to see when the glorious colors make bright the beds and fragrance spreads far beyond the bouodaries that have now been set. This rose garden, the planting of which was begun early in April, occu pies one of the conspicuous sites in the City of Knowledge. The center of the garden is at the main entrance to the Palace of Agriculture, a grand struc ture 1,000 feet long and 500 feet deep. It is on a high elevation overlooking the group of main buildings of the Ex position, and, looking to the northeast a splendid view of one of St. Louis' most attractive residence districts is spread out before the eye. When the graders finished their work and turned the site over to the gardeners, every vestige of soil had been removed, and a broad expanse of sticky, yellow clay remained. Surely to the layman a most unfavorable lo cation for a flower garden. But to the practical rose grower it was an ideal spot. The ground was platted with a series of eight collections, forming a great oval, 150 feet long and 100 feet wide, as the central picture. In the center of this oval is erected a statue of the Goddess of Flowers, in heroic size. Flanking this oval on the north and south, are two great collections, triangular in form. Scores of other collections, laid out in plots of ground in various shapes, but all conforming with the general harmony of the main picture, have been provided. Each collection, while separate and distinct in itself, forms a part of a great and artistic whole, and a belt of beautiful green lawn, from four to eight feet wide, surrounds each collec tion. Spacious gravel walks are pro vided throughout the entire four acres of roses, and at various intersections beautiful fountains, sending up streams of crystal water and cooling the atmo sphere, are to be met. Seats to ac commodate thousands of visitors have been provided and the seats are so dis tributed as not to interfere with the free passage through the gardens of the countless thousands who will revel in the glorious sight. The work of planting the 50.000 roses already growing in this mam moth gardeo, the largest of its kind ever conceived, occupies the time of scores of expert gardeners and hosts of laborers. For each collection, excava tions 18 inches deep, of the form and size required for the collection, were dug in the sticky clay soil. Then the excavations were filled in with rich top soil and sandy loam. A dressing of fertilizer, of the kind best adapted to the requirements of the particular rose tree collection, is spread and then came the work of putting the young plants in their magnificently con ceived new home. With the young plant firmly placed in its perfectly prepared bed, came April showers. The water percolated through the rich soil and was absorbed in the sandy loam. The strong and healthy young bushes sent their vigorous roots down through the soft earth and found se cure lodgment in the clay that forms the foundation. Then no matter how bard the wind blew, they were not dis turbed. While the roots were developing un seen under the ground, there was evi dence of their power in the vigorous growth above ground. The young shoots, anxious for their freedom after the winter's captivity in the cramped cold frames and the packages in which they were shipped, grew by leaps and bounds. Springing up from the ground, the pink shoots were at first almost transparent, so delicate were they. Then they became browned by the sun and exposure and soon the lit tle buds appeared and under the min istrations of the watchful gardeners, and the influence of the warm April sun, the young plants were allowed to bloom, but not sufficiently to tax too "Hew to the Line, Let the Chips Fall "Where they May." greatly the energy of the plant. Ex pansion was what the gardener most wanted, and the wood growth of the rose tree is demanded this year more than the blossom. Most of the 50,000 roses now planted are of the hardy or semi-hardy varie ties, but many of the varieties that are not supposed to stand the rigors of a St. Louis winter are among the spec imens, shown in the mammoth World's Fair garden. All during the summer months, and until the snow flies next fall, the rose trees will continue in creasing in size, strength and beauty. Then will the gardeners take precau tions to prevent the frost from inter fering with the beautiful picture pro vided for visitors to the City of Knowl edge. The entire four acres will be heavily mulched. Manure, straw and litter will be packed about the roots of each individual plant, and a top layer of straw will cover the beautiful rose garden in the winter as the waters cov er the sea and the snow covers the ground. Then no matter how low the temperature may drop, or how strong the storm may blow, the spring of 1904 will witness the awakening of the greatest and most artistic exhibit of choice roses ever collected. SOME ODD FACTS ABOUT FROGS Have Peculiarities Not Found in Any Other Living Creature. The frog's skin is so important as a breathing apparatus tbat the creature would die at once of suffocation if the pores were closed by a coat of sticky varnish, by dust or in any other way. While we are speaking of his breath ing you will notice tbat his sides do not heave as ours do at each breath we take. A frog has no ribs and can not inhale and exhale as we do, but is obliged to swallow bis air in gulps, and if you will watch this little fel low's throat you will see it continually moving in and out as one gulp follows another. I-u order to swallow his mouth must be closed; just try to swallow with your mouth wide open and you will 6ee what I mean. A frog, then, always breathes through bis nose, and if you hold his mouth open he would suffocate as surely as though you gave his skin a coat of varnish. Mr. Frog has an enormous mouth for his size and if we were to put a finger inside it we would find that he has a row of teeth in the upper jaw and that his soft white tongue, unlike our own, is attached in front and is free behind. WheD he wishes to catch any insect he throws out the free end of the tongue, then draws it in so rap idiy that it is difficult to see whether he has been successful or not. As the tongue is coated with a gummy fluid the insect sticks to it and is carried back into the mouth, which closes upon it like the door of a tomb. Frogs, however, are not limited to one mode of feeding; they often leap open mouthed upon larger prey, which in cludes besides insects small fish, mice, small ducklings, polliwogs and tiny frogs. Hill's Big Steamships. The two great steamships—the Min nesota and the Dakota—which James J. Hill is having built at New London, Conn., are neariug completion. The former has just been launched, and the latter is expected to be ready for launching in about ten weeks. These ■hips will be the largest cargo carriers in existence, having a dead weight car rying capacity of 28,000 tons and a tonnage displacement of 38,000 tons. Including the crew of 250, each ship will be able to carry 3,024 persons, of whom 2,424 will be in the steerage. The Minnesota and the Dakota are to be used on the Pacific, to ply be tween Puget Sound and the Orient, to accommodate the traffic on the Great Northern and Northern Pacific roads. Mr. Hill says that there is plenty of traffic and that it is increas ing rapidly. The speed of the steam ships is to be fourteen knots, so that they can be operated to the best ad vantage. They must meet the com petition of the heavily subsidized Ja panese line, the Canadian Pacific and other lines; but, backed by two trans continental railroads, they will doubt less make a success of the undertaking and prove an important factor of the American merchant marine in the commerce of the Pacific. What a Difference! If an editor makes a mistake he has to apologize for it, but if a doctor makes one be buries it. If the editor falls from grace there is a lawsuit, swearing and a smell of sulphur, but if the doctor does so there is a funeral, cut flowers and a smell of varnish. The doctor can use a word a yard long without knowing what it means, but if the editor uses it he has to spell it. If the doctor goes to see another man's wife, he charges for the visit, but if the editor goes to see another man's wife, he gets a charge of buckshot- When a doctor gets drunk, it's a case OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY MORNING, JULY 8, 1903. of " overcome by heat," and if he dies it is heart trouble. When an editor gets drunk, it's a case of too much booze and if he dies it's a case of de lirium tremens. HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Good Ilouickecpiiig. A sandwich which had great vogue at New York teas the past winter is easily made. Butter three slices of white bread, two of graham. Lay light, then dark, on top of one another alter, nately; press carefully together. Then cut like layer cake in pieces half an inch wide. The thinnest of gauze suits, for un derwear, will be found to aid materially in the effort to keep cool. They should be changed daily, of course, for it is a positive discomfort to don perspired and clammy underwear when dressing in the morning. They will require scarcely more than a rinsing, and the sun will do the rest. No ironing is necessary; indeed, they are fresher and sweeter without. The union suit is cooler than the two-piece suit, in that it does away with the extra band about tbe waist. A housewife was caught in the coun try house, three milea from a store, with a lot of jelly ready to boil up and about half as many tumblers as she needed. There was nothing in the houae which could be used to hold it, but the cellar overflowed with empty bottles. She remembered an experiment her boys had tried for winter evening fun. She took a bottle, tied a turpentine soaked cord about it half way up and tied the knot tightly. Then she set tire to the cord. As it burned its way around there was a snapping noise. The fire had made a clean cut and she had a beautifui jelly glass. Dozens of other bottles were served in the tame way and the jelly making process went on. For four loaves, boil two good-sized potatoes (slicing them) in three pints scant of water, without covering the vessel used. Have ready in a gallon bowl a tablespoonful of salt, sugar and lard each, and when the potatoes are done strain the water into the bowl, also add the potatoes, rubbed through the strainer. Blend the ingredients by a little stirring and when the tem perature is lessened below scalding, add enough flour to make a medium thick batter (four or five cups), beat ing until all lumps disappear. When the temperature is reduced to luke warm (or a little over) add one-half cake of any reliable dry yeast dissolved in a cup of warm (not hot) water; stir until well blended and stand the bowl (covered) where it will not chill over night. In the morning work in flour until the dough will not stick to the molding board—which point should be attained while the mass is fairly soft and yielding, not stiff and hard as some poor bread makers fancy it must be. Work well for thirty minutes from the time of beginning to add flour. When light, work down by just a few " turns," and when it has again risen mold into loaves. Now allow to rise a third time, and then bake from forty-five to sixty minutes, according to the oven. The proper degree of each rising may be definitely indicated by the veteran breadmaker's formula: "when it doubles in bulk." It is better to raise dough in a covered stone jar (it should be warmed in cold weather) than in a tin breadpan. The bread may be begun in the morning by using one cake of compressed yeast, but it is not so fine in flavor as the over-night bread made with less yeast. It is possible that half a cake (or less) of compressed yeast might be substi tuted for dry yeast in the over-night sponge; but that is a point for experi ment. If directions are followed, the bread will be moist, close-grained, very light, deliciciously flavored, " keeps" to the limit of good keeping, is white —in short, is all that bread should be to merit the verdict" perfect." THE French Chamber of Deputies has under consideration a measure providing relief for the aged in the form of a pension or free hospital and medical care for every needy person of at least seventy years of age. Tbe committee by which the measure was reported favorably estimates that tbe cost will be 13,400,000 per annum; others insist, however, that the ex pense will reach 130,000,000. The plan appears to be very popular in France and while a great many states men seriously doubt the advisability of assuming tbe new burden, the Paris correspondent for the Chicago Tribune says that tbe goverment will intro duce the bill and tbe problem must consequently be solved either by econ omies in the expenses of the War De partment or by levying new taxes. THE Czar of Russia informs the new King of Servia that he will be expected to punish the murderers of Alexander and Draga. But who in Sam Hill is going to tell the Czar to punish the murderers of the Jews? Perfect Bread. 'SOME QUEER FARMS. NOT ALWAYS SOIL THAT IS A BA SIS OF FARM OPERATIONS. One it the Result of an Individual's Hobby for Pet Fish—Another Runs a Worm Farm —Still Another a So-Called Ostrich Farm- Ginseng as a Drug and Mushrooms for Food, Enlist the Attention of Others—A Gentleman Near Troy Has Seventy-five Acres in Gladioluses. From ostriches to worms, from birds of the air to fish of the sea, the farm ing instinct and ability of this coun try's citizens to turn every one of its advantages to account has given the United States a reputation for unique farms unequaled by any other country on the face of the globe, says the Chicago Tribune. A partial list of these odd cultiva tions comprises goldfish, pigeons, for culinary purposes exclusively, worms, ostriches, ginseng, mushroomß and gladioluses, and most of them carry tbo monopoly of the world's trade. The goldfish farm near Waldron, Ind., was tho result of ODe man's hobby for pet fish and the disclination of bis ground to yield a profitable in come, William Sbov.p, the owner, tried first to farm bis land in the accustomed way of tilling the soil. The result he considered not worth the work involved. Fet stock claimed bis attention and be gave up his ex tensive acres to rearing them. In one small pond he kept his goldfish until he found that they were multiplying HO quickly as to crowd each other out of their preserves. In order to get rid of them he sent to the East to find a sale for his super- Sous fish. Mr. Shoup's especial hobby iu his love for pets has always been goldfish, and as his were among the finest specimens to be had anywhere, he received a prompt request for more until he decided that it would be worth while to devote additional farm ing space to bis fish. So from a mere pastime sprang the biggest goldfish industry in the world. At a rough calculation, out of his 150,- 000 fish, this goldfish farmer realizes every yesr about 120,000. Worm farming is the strange hobby of another man, William Griswold, a public official in St. Louis. His whole farm is encompassed in two good-sized packing boxes, yet, despite its limited accommodations it counts about 10,- 000 " head" of stock. In order to be ever ready for the sport on a minute's notice, Mr. Gris wold conceived the idea of cultivat ing his own bait instead of having to grub for it as occasion demanded. The tenants of this stock farm are earthworms, not a strange or rare breed, but the ordinary, common, every-day, wriggling earthworm. There are four species—black, red, sulphur and blue clay worms. Tbey are di vided into classes, according to their kind, and carefully nursed in separate enclosures. Pigeons form a means of revenue for a Los Angeles man, who found that to meet the demand of deal ers and satisfy the appetite of the public he must raise at least 15,000 of the little feathered creatures every year. Fifteen thousand little white and gray pigeons, called squabs, in the vernacular of the produce market, go out to all parts of the United States from this farm, for T. Y. Johnson, the owner, has no rival in the country. His fsrm which is the only one in the world, covers an area of eight acres. Three gigantic lofts contain almost 10,000 rooms. The menu for each meal is: One wagon-load of screenings, two sacks of wheat, 12 gallons of boiled meat, and about half a barrel of stale bread soaked in water. This costs on an average of 1300 a month. At South Pasadena, Cal., lives Ed win Cawston whose fame as an os trich breeder is world wide. His farm is the parent farm, the headquarters of ostrich culture in this country. The beautiful sweeping plumes that tdorn tbe Gainsborough of the stately society dame and the feathers form ing the long boa, light as thistledown, that milady wears around her neck and the snowy fan which the coy maiden uses to such advantages as she knows how—all these come from Mr. Cawston's huge farm, from birds so ugly that even their plumage scarce redeems their lack of beauty. The hundreds of ostriches which Mr. Cawston breeds to meet tbe enor mous demand for feathers have sprung from a single cargo which he brought from Africa. Here are displayed the processes of ostrich cultivation from the beginning. Incubators filled witb eggs about to be hatched, young chicks and full grown ostriches ready to be plucked. The owner has the world as his market place. J. G. Osborn, of Westfield, Pa., has a hobby for raising ginseng, the Chin ese drug which has found such favor in this country. Until Mr. Osborn took it up, ginseng users had to con- tent themselves with taking chances of gptting the favorite root from " sheng" hunters, who seek it in the woods, or pay euormous prices for the imported article. It requires about eight years before the first crop of ginseng rout can bo dug, and during all that time the growing plants require constant watch ing and a great deal of care. Chicago has the largest mushroom farms in the United States and its farmers are women. In several low brick structures, standing partly un der and partly over ground at North western and Bowmanville avenues, are 7,000 square feet of beds from which during the height of the season is taken a ton of mushrooms a week. The most beautiful American farm is on the estates of Mr. Arthur Cowee, known as " Meadowvale farm," near Troy, N. Y. For years Mr. Cowee, who is one of the country's bituminous coal barous, has taken a keen interest in the cultivation of gladioluses, his favorite flower. Seventy-five acres of his farm are devoted entirely to the growing of these blooms. Nowhere else are to be found the fine varieties and colors that this farm displays every season. From all parts of the world, at enormous cost, Mr. Cowee has gathered gladiolus bulbs of the most expensive species. STATE NEWS. A Brief Summary of News Gathered From All Parts of the State. Linemen at Tacoma are on a strike. And now the barbers are going to test the Sunday law, which they %o strenuously demanded for closing their shops. One of the biggest sawmills in upper Michigan is being dismantled, pre paratory to its removal to Fuget Sound. Its owners have closed con tracts here which will keep the mill running the next ten year*. The machinery for a new creamery has arrived at Gig Harbor. The plant will be in active operation by July Ist. Ai the start, the creamery proposes to pay twenty-five cents for sufficient cream to make one pound of butter. J. D. Farrell arrived at Victoria by the Empress of China, this week, from an inspection tour in the Orient for opening up trade for the mammoth Great Northern ships soon to ply be tween Puget Sound aud the Far East. The flow of the artesian well on the Blalock fruit farm near Walla Walla is so satisfactory that another well is to be sunk in the near future. The present flow is becoming stronger and is now running about 125 gallons per minute. Upon the arrival of the steamer Mainlander in Seattle, Col. T. M. Fisher, Immigration Inspector, took into custody Suzane Goudier and Marie Foicote, two young French girls, whom he suspected of coming for immoral purposes. Mrs. W. B. Fetterm.in and Mrs. O. O. Beardsley, of Aberdeen, are report ed to be heirs, with fourteen others, to a fortune of $2,000,000, left without will or known descent, in 1852, by a miser named Nield, in England, and which had escheated to the Crown. The Western Iron and Fuel com pany, composed of Tacoma and Spo kane men, has been organized and has secured four claims of 120 acres each, located near the Nicola coal fields, owned by Spokane men. The new company has sent out a crew with a diamond drill to thoroughly explore the property. Several Walla Walla business men • are regretting the sudden departure of Perry Heath, a barber, lately in the employ of Salem S. Twist, a local bar ber. Bills to the amount of several hundred dollars are said to hare been left unpaid, including a SIOO bill for diamonds and nearly SIOO for expen sive clothing. A gas plant franchise has been asked at North Yakima, not so much to sup ply an illuminating service as to in stall gas ranges at a saving of fuel and increasing the comfort of the kitchen during the hot days of summer. The company propose installment imme diately of a SOO,OOO enterprise if a fran chise is granted. N Snohomish has aHyu Wawa Club, very properly composed of women as the name signifies Much Talk. The yearly officers lately elected were: Mrs. Harriet J.

It will be observed that they have pre served a consistency in enrolling their names by using hyu wawa to establish their identity. GROSSLY INSULTED. COLONEL J. HAMILTON LEWIS MISTAKEN FOR A BOER. His Auburn Whiskers the Cause of the Em barrassing Error—The Man Who Offered the Insult Apologized and J. Ham Was Happy Again —An Intended Compliment That Was Lost in the Colonel's Hirsute Adornment. A special to the St. Paul Pioneer- Press relates this amusing happening (.and when are tilings not happening to him?) to James Hamilton Lewis, lately, in Chicago. It was a fancied insult to his whis kers, au unpardonable assault—in the mind of J. Ham. His tribulations lasted two hours, when the man who offered the insult apologized and our modern Beau Brummel fairly bowed to the ground in gracious acceptance of the amende. It transpired that the insult was unintentional. Mr. Lewis was strol ling through the corridor of a hotel when he encountered Col. William D. Snymann, the expatriated Boer, who is in the United States completing plans for the colonization of Chihua hua, Mexico, by those of his country men who refuse to submit to English rule. The Mexican government has promised to assist the Boer exiles to pay for farms, and Colonel Snymann is making the tinal arrangements for the transportation of his countrymen to Chihuahua. " How do you do, sir?" he' said to Mr. Lewis. " Have we not met be fore?" The Hon. J. Hamilton Lewis could not remember that tbey bad, but he is not the man to say " No." " Delighted to see you," he remarked suavely, offering his hand. The two men fell to talking and matters pro gressed swimmingly. Before they had conversed five minutes, Colonel Snymann decided that it would not be amiss to offer his new friend a farm at Chihuahua. Mr. Lewis received the offer good naturedly, although it piqued his pride that any one should think he had the " makings" of a farmer beneath his glossy coat. He thanked the stranger, and was about to I ask for an explanation when the in sult came. "Do you know," said Colonel Snymann, and his tone was warm with good fellowship, " do you ; know I recognized you as a Boer the moment my eyes fell on you. I think it was your whiskers that first drew my attention. No one but a Boer could grow whiskers like yours." Mr. Lewis did not wait for more. He sharply turned on his hsel, raised his hat and marched away, indigna tion showing in every stride. It was until late in the evening that a mutual acquaintance brought about an under standing and a reconciliation. CAUSE OF FLOOD AND DROUTH It Is Attributed to Denudation of Forests Which May Produce Either Extreme. Just now the West is witnessing the devastation caused by floods produced by rains which, falling upon a defor ested region, rush unhindered down the watersheds, gathering a volume whose force sweeps everything before it, says the St. Paul (Minn.) Dispatch. In the East the effect of denudation of forests is seen in a prolonged drouth that is threatening entire loss of crops. In the West the exceptional rains over limited areas prevented recur rence of the drouths, from which its agriculture frequently suffers. In the statutes of the nation stands a pre mium of $2 a thousand to those who will exterminate our forests of pine and hardwoods, while another addi tional premium is added in case an exporting country lays an export duty on the products of its forests. Even the poplar and spruce, which may be used in making paper, are not exempt from this law whose effect, whatever its purpose, is to facilitate the destruc tion of forests that retain rainfall and prevent either extreme of flood or drouth. Congress should promptly make some provision for the protection of the forests at the headwaters of our streams, otherwise within a very few years the country will suffer damages from which it will take a hundred years to recover. Much of the loss of life and property in the floods of past few weeks can be traced directly to the denudation of the forests. Children to the Front. Queeu Alexandra, of England, is the latest to join in the war against " race suicide." The Queen, it seems, has set the pace by riding through the streets of Loudon holding little Prince Henry of Wales in her lap and now the " sassiety" leaders are falling all over themselves to be in the swim, and may be seen parading the streets with any old aort of a baby. The poodle lap dog has been given a black eye. OABTOaXA. Bears the BflUgM WHOLE NUMBER 2,247. ssoo®?° WHO OAMStOT BE OUREO. Backed up by over a third of a century of remarkable and uniform cures, a record such as no other remedy for the diseases and weaknessess peculiar to women ever attained, the proprietors and makers of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription now feel folly warranted in offering to pay SSOO in legal money of the United States, for any case of Leucorrhea, Female Weakness, Prolapsus, or Falling of Womb which they cannot cure.
