The radish patch usually hi the first

For the home garden, radish seed
should be sown In the open ground as
soon us the soil ls moderately warm.
Plant la drills 12 to 18 inches apart,

them slightly in order to provent
crowding. Radishes require to be
grown on a quick, rich soil, and some
of the earlier sorts can be matured in
two or three weeks after planting. If
the radishes grow slowly they will
have a pungent flavor and will not be
flt for table use. For a constant sup
ply successive plantings should be
made every two weeks, as the roots
lose their crispness and delicate flavor

ground. As a rule a large percent

avoid the necessity of thinning, the

Was Fought 00 Years Ago Between
Monitor and Merrimac.
New York, March 9.-Sixty years
ago this morning the Confederate
Inronclad Merrimac steamed away
from her anchorage in Hampton
Roads to attack what was expected
to be a defenseless Union fleet. In
stead she met the ?Monitor, later
called the "Yankee Cheesebox on a
Raft," and engaged In the first bat
tle between Ironclads, which changed
the whole navjal strategy sot the
world, and which has been described
as the most momentous sen engage
ment ever fought.
To-day tho cities of New York and
Stockholm, Sweden, united In doing
honor to John Ericsson, who de
signed the Monitor.
A tablet was to be unveiled under
the auspices of tho American Society
of the Swedish ?Engineers at the
house at 36 Beach street, whore the
noted (Ericsson lived, and lator an
other tablet was to be unveiled at
260 West street and the site of the
Phoenix Foundry, where the parts of
the Monitor were turned out, and
where Ericsson spont his last active
years. The latter ceremony was to

Unknown Operator /esta os His Ship
Goos Down.
New York, March 8.-The grim
humor ot a wireless operator, who
laughed at death and slashed strik
ing bits of wit into the ether as his
ship, the Norwegian sti ".mer Gron
toft, wallowed and slowly sank dur
ing a mid-Atlantic hurricane last
Thursday, was recorded on the radio
log of the Danish steamer Estonia,
arriving to-day.
Each detail of the ship's plight,
oach call for aid, was supplemented
by the jesting comment of the radio
man, whose identity is still unknown.
?He talked as if he were going on a
lark in port instead of to the bottom
of the sea. 'His last message, a dis
jointed one, was a series of witti
cisms-with death as the butt of
the joke.
The Estonia, herself hard hit in
the 110-mile gale, made a valiant
but unsuccessful effort to reach the
Grontoft, which first sent out calls
for aid at 10 o'clock last Thursday
morning, reporting her position as
about 700 miles east of Cape Race.
The Estonia at that time was 48
miles west of the disabled Norwe
gian and steaming in an. opposite
direction. Capt. 'Hans Jorgensen or
dered his ship about, however, and
sho steamed toward the Grontoft.
Meanwhile Radio Operator Hansen
engaged the operator of the Grontoft
in conversation. The latter sent out
first the following - a stereotyped
irony of the seas:
"God pity the poor sailors on a
night like this." Then followed a
series of "Ha, Ha.!"
"And say," he continued, "the old
man thinks this calm will be over
by nightfall. We sure need some
An hour later an urgent call for
aid was sent out by the Grontoft and
her operator Jested again:
"Well, the steward ls making tho
sandwiches for the life-boats. Looks
like we are going on a picnic."
Again, a half hour later, he said:
"The old wagon has a Hst like
a rundown heel. This ls no weather
for a fellow to be out in without an
"Hold on," returned the Estonia's
wireless. "We'll he alongside soon."
The Grontoft did not reply until
forty minutes later. Then:
"We are sinking stern first. The
boats are smashed. Can't hold out
any longer.
"The skipper dictated that, lie
ought to know. Where did I put my
hat? Sorry wo can't wait for you
pressing business elsewhere-"
The Estonia's operator quoted in
reply these lines:
"What dam of a lances brought thee
To Jest at dawn with death?"
But there was no answer.
Six hours after picking up the first
call from the Grontoft the Estonia
reached her reported position, and,
though she cruised about for four
. hours, failed to find even a trace of

Cotton Acreago Plans.
? "'
Farmers lu this section who have
boen 'anticipating mild boll weevil
damage the coming year should con
sider th? following statements by
Prof. Conrad!, State Entomologist,
at Glenison :
"Even throughout this section the
weevil ls more numerous than we
expected, and than it will be in or
dinary yesT. The four mild winters
just passed have brought this about.
This does not mean, necessarily, the
Impossibility ot growing (a cotton
crop, because we may get weather In
June and July entirely unfavorable
to the weevil and yet make a crop.
However, with the present weevil
abundance and the possibility of fa
vorable weevil weather In June and
July, we may well look upon the cot
ton crops of 1922 with apprehension.
Far mois may well give serious con
sideration to the reduction of their
acreage to a minim um for 1922, ac
cording to the present outlook."
Farmers' plans for 1922 should by
all means include a strict "llve-at
home" policy, producing for home
consumption everything possible for
man and beast, so that if money runs
short there will be no hunger.
Other money crops of proven value
may be gone into on a limited scale
by community co-operation, such as
sweet potato storago houses, fall
crop of Irish potatoes, soy beans be
tween rows of corn, harvested with
a soy bean harvester. Also, the ship
ping of cream to near-by creameries,
where all feedstuffs are home-grown
?lu great plenty should provide some
ready cash along. More chickens and
more hogs could be raised, and the
co-operative plan of shipping used
to bring the markets to the produc
ers. Better pastures should now be
started and plans made for growing
a larger variety of feedstuffs.
Then the acreage of cotton should
be well handled, employing the best
means of growing lt under weevil
conditions, such as good preparation
of soil, good seed, planting as early
as safety will permit, using fertiliz
ers judiciously, according to soil
types in order to make each dollar
count most, getting a good stand and
leaving the stalks only about a hoe's
width! apart, and then rushing cul
tivation fast and often, on until the
crop humado. The picking of early

sweet potatoes for bedding purposes
