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-

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

punish the murderers of the Jews?

'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.

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.

Queeu Alexandra, of England, is the
latest to join in the war against " race

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.

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

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. All they ask is a fair and
reasonable trial of their means of cure.
They have the most remarkable record
of cure 6 made by this world-famed remedy
ever placed to the credit of any prepara
tion especially designed for the cure of
woman's peculiar ailments.
