fact that these splendid indorsements

FORMER MAYOR FRANK V. EVANS,
OF BIRMINGHAM, ALA., MAKES
O NE of the latest additions to the
large and rapidly growing list of
prominent men who have publicly in
dorsed Tanlac for the good it has done
them, is the name of Hon. Frank V.
Evans, former Mayor of Birmingham.
Mr. Evans is one of the best known
men in public lift* in Alabama today,
being at one time editor of one of the
South's greatest newspapers, the Bir
mingham Age-llerald. He was also ex
aminer of public accounts of Alabama.
In telling of ihe benefits he had de
rived from Tanlac. Mr. Evans said:
"For years I suffered with gastritis
and Indigestion In the worst form. I
was habitually constipated and had
Pains in ray shoulders and headache
continually. My appetite left me al
most entirely and everything I would
cat hurt me. Finally I got to having
awful attacks of acute indigestion, pal
pitation of the heart and smothering
spells. For a long tim«* I would have
one or more of these spells every night
and I would wake out of my restless
sleep gasping for breath.
"I bought a bottle of Tanlac and to
my surprise and gratification I began
to feel relief after the first few doses.
I kept taking the medicine and now my
recovery is simply the talk of Birming
Tanlac lias done me more good than
anything I ever tried. I now wake up
in the mornings feeling fine.
"I'm telling all my friends about
Tanlac and tint recommending it to
them, regardless of their age and

Doing things that are not worth
while is a pernicious form of idleness.
By L. C. CORBETT
Horticulturist, Bureau of Plant Industry
U. S. Department of Agriculture
Cobaea scandons is a rapid-growing
climbing vine which is easily propa
gated from seed. The dark color and
refined character of its foliage, to-j
get her with its bell-shaped flowers,
render it a very satisfactory vine for
covering broad areas. It is a less ram- I
pant grower than the moonflower, hut j
furnishes quite as satisfactory a
screen made up of much fitter leaves.
The flowers are not conspicuous, be
cause of their modest colors and be
cause they tire hidden by tin* foliage.
Their form, however, is pleasftig and
they are open during the day.
For success in the climate of Wash
ington, D. C., seeds of the cobnea scan
dens should be sown about March 15
in a rich compost. When the young
seedlings have developed their first
true leaves, they should be transferred
to ihree-inoh pots or te» tomato cans
and kept growing slowly until danger
of frost is past. In the open a ricit
border should he provided, for as soon
as hot weather comes on the plants
- , %
grow very rapidly if ample food is at
their command. A rabbit-netting trel
lis or support is more satisfactory
than cords or smooth wire for this
plant, ns it fastens itself chiefly by
tendrils rather than by twining, as
does the morning-glory.
The erinus varieties (lobelias) are
charming little plants that bloom very
quickly from the seed and continue
gay with flowers all through the sea
son. For beds, edgings, baskets, and
pots there is nothing prettier; their
clear colors and generous bloom make
them welcome anywhere.
The seeds may be sown outdoors In
early spring where the [»hints are to
grow. As the plants appear they
should be thinned moderately, or trans
planted several inches apart in rich,
open soil. Liquid manure given while
they are in bloom greatly improves
the flowers.. Many sorts are also good
winter conservatory plants of trailing
habit. The perennial or tall varieties
are handsome, showy plants, found
quite effective for backgrounds and
The aster is certainly one of the
most satisfactory of the annual flower
ing plants. The great variety in its
size, color, form, and season of bloom
ing makes it a most satisfactory plant
for supplying cut flowers. In fact,
many of the Improved sorts produce
flowers equal In form and size to some
of the better sorts of chrysanthemums.
The range of color presented in this
group Is one of Its chief merits.
Strange as It may appear, the plunt
world Is not very well supplied with
blue flowers possessing characters
which render them suited to domestic
or commercial uses. In the aster, how
ever, are found many shades of blue
and purple and for this reason, if
for no other, the aster should prove
an attractive decorative plant. The
habit of growth adapts the aster not
only to close planting for cut bloom,
but some forms are robust, tall-grow
ing plants, well adapted for use in an
herbaceous border where late bloom
and careless effects are desired. The
more compact-growing, large-flowered
forms are most desirable for cut
blooms, while the tall-growing, open
types are most useful in wild gardens
or for screens. The wild aster (aster
novae-nngllae) Is one of the most beau
tiful and most satisfactory of this
latter class. The vigor and ease of
culture of the aster are factors which
contribute to Its popularity.
Plants from seed sown in the open
ground It» Muy bloom finely in Septem
ber and October, when the flowers
are seen at their best. For July and
August bloom, seeds should be sown In
Marc i or April in a cold frame, spent

used in too large quantities sometimes
proves injurious to asters. Only thor
oughly composted manure mixed with

, In tie* gaillardias art* found both
annual and perennial plants offering
a wide selection of varieties and a
profusion of bloom over a long period.
The blooming period begins early and
continues late in autumn. They are
well adapted to mixed borders and are
very satisfactory as cut flowers. The
stems are of good length, carry the
flowers well, and Keep fresh as cut
flowers for a long time when placed In
The annual gaillardias are nil propa
gated readily from seeds sown in the
open, but earlier flowers will be se
cured by sowing seeds In a hotbed
and transplanting the plants to the
open as soon as killing frosts have
passed. In either case the blooming
plants should not stand closer than
10 or 12 inches. They grow and bloom
best when fully exposed to sun and
air, and when planted on a fertile
hut light and well-drained soil.
or Pot Marigold.
The calendula or pot marigold is a
hardy annual about a foot high. A
moderately rich, light soil is most con
genial to these plants, which should
be placed about 8 or 10 inches apart,
if planted in mass or in borders. The
seed may he sown in the open ground
quite early In spring, and the plants
will be in bloom early in summer and
continue to bloom until late in the au
tumn. The coloring of the flowers
ranges through all shades of yellow
Ivory to deep orange. The plants
hlooin freely and earlier than the
marigold, and are useful In beds, bor
ders. or backgrounds. The dried flow
ers are sometimes used for flavoring
soups and stews. There are both sin
gle and double forms of the pot mari
gold. One of the most satisfactorj
methods of propagating this plant is
from seeds sown about April 1 in the
North in spent hotbeds or cold frames.
After the middle of May, In localities
north of Washington it will be safe
to transfer the young plants to theii
permanent summer quarters.

CHINESE MILITARY TACTICS
Celestials Planned to Trip Up Foes,
Throw Water in Their Faces and
Then Cut Off Their Heads.
At the beginning of the Chlno-Japa
nese war, says a contributor to the
Washington Star, one of our military
attaches saw a Chinese regiment take
the field at a review and go through a
very curious performance.
The soldier carried long bamboo
poles like fishing rods, and witli these
they rushed at one another, yelling
wildly and making very queer gestures
"What's the game?" asked the Amer
"That regiment." a Chinese general
answered, "is one of our very oldest.
It is now practicing a form of assault
that dates from prehistoric times. The
Idea is to trip the enemy up with tiie
