Federal Rose Farm To Be Beauty Spot Every Variety That Grows in This Climate To Be Planted in Arlington Garden Under Super vision of Department of Agriculture. The National Rose Garden, which is to contain every species of rose which can be grown in this latitude, has been established at the Arlington farm of the Department of Agriculture. There, under the supervision ot Government horticulturists, the plants which have been furnished by the American Rose Society will be propagated. Already more than 300 varieties of flowers are to be found in the beds, and it is the plan to make the garden one of the show spots of the city. By KENDRICK SCOFIELD. !

Jones Kixey. former president of the Virginia Safe Deposit airl Trust Corporation, has been ordered to the Southwestern Asylum for the Criminal Insane, at Marion. Va., without due process of lav.-, and that the act of the assembly providing for commitment was invalid, AUorny3 John 1. Jeffries, of Norfolk, and James R. Caton. of this !tv. appeared before the Court of Ap peals today and asked for his release on a writ of habeas corpus. The court took the application under consideration, and will set a date for a hearing. Many interesting points of law are embraced in this attempt of Mr. Rixey to obtain his release, the principal one being on the validity of the act of the assembly in reference to the criminal insaijp. When Mr. Rixey was placed in the custody of the city sergeant) Alex andria to be removed to Marlon, the hospital had not been completed, and he v.ns temporarily placed at Staunton, when; he is still confined. Another point !s that the corporation court of this, city did not have the right to h.ie a lunacy commission appointed to examine Mr. Rixey's sanity, as ho had already been judged insane by a commission held at Orange.

Cigar Stamps to Show Only General Provinces Cigar stamps furnished by the inter-1 nal Revenue Bureau, of the Treasury, j will indicate merely the general origin of the tobacco contained in the cigars j rather than the specific counties or prov inces In which the various kinds of leaf were grown. A ruling to this effect was made public by the Internal Revenue Bureau today. The question of specific or general de sciiption of the place of origin has been in icntroversy between manufacturers in New York and those in Tampa, Fla. The customs division, fortified with a decision from the Attorney General, holds that It would be impractical to show on a cigar stamp, the place of origin of all tobacco in a cigar.
