VIEWS AND NEAR VIEWS (Continued from First Page.) when the samo trninB reach Richmond, Petersburg and other cities. I notice When 1 so to Richmond tho train is I hardly atopped In tho station bet?re the porter is at the car steps with blsj ! little stepping block to enable the dls-' ; embarking passengers to reach terra j iirma without having to make auch a! .long and disagreeable step down-' j wards, and the embarking ones to get' j aboard without climbing, but with tho exception of the ltlchmoud-Danvlllo division of the Southern road I have not seen that thing done nl any coun? try Btatlon on any rood In Virginia, innd the women are left to climb down from the last s<tep on the cur or jump, I down as best they can, or climb up us] 'the cuse may be. Men can stand it j fairly well, but 1 know as a physician' that It Is a terrible experience for a' woman, and If ono travels much she' Is sure to he injured by this long-atop. 1 do not sec why the porterH should not; havo tho stepping block In placo at country stations ns well r.s In tho city' stations. If the railroad managers can't be persuaded to look after this matter It might be a good Idea lo call the attention of the Slate Corporation Commission to it." Gentlemen of the railways and the commission, the country doctor's hint Is before you. The Drnutlful Dcgirood. Professor Charles A. Keofer. ot Tennessee, writes In the Soulhern Ag? riculturist as follows: "Every farmer, meaning thereby all j the men and women who work on! farms, should spend an hour or two in' the woods during the dogwood time and enjoy their beamy. The'Japanese make a holiday when tne cherry trees are In full bloom and the whole popu-j lace goes out along the cherry bord- j cred country roads lo admire tno beau- | t If til flowers. But our dogwoods havo' a far more beautiful setting. No road-1 wide tree can be so well placed to show' Its beauty as tho dogwood, growing beneath oaks and pines, making a sec? ond story throughout tho forest? great sheets of white bloasoms. every bloom ding its best to turn Its race up toward the sun. "To-day I have beeen out In the] woods and everywhere tho dogwood | trees brighten the hillsides. There is n thick carpet of leaves on the ground, so thick that very few bpring flowers, grow through. There Is very little j undergrowth, the shade Is loo densei for anything but the dogwood and oth-j cr shade-enduring plants, and must plants love the sun. So there Is noth? ing below the crowns of tho high oaks ?and pines and chestnuts to attract the attention but tho dogwoods." The professor might have added that it Is a good thing for city folKS as well as farmers to go out in tho wool's ut this season of the year Just lo look upon the dogwood blossoms, and I will udd that the best place on earth to enjoy them in In this good old State, Tor the dogwoods bloom no where quite so lovely as In Old Virginia. Ilualnrna Versus I'olltlcs. "A Citizen," writing to the editor of the Vox Popull column of the Pltls burgh I'ost, has this to say: "\Vould it not be bettor for the coun> try if we were to devote a little of 3iir surplus political energy to legiti? mate business pursuits? Here weare ar? rayed against each other strug tiling to elect a President?or lo ?elect a candidate for that exalted jfttei. The constant turmoil can? not but t>e detrimental to bust n*ss. !W? are Buffering from ex? cessive i>rice.-', but Instead of exert? ing all our energies to gi eater produc? tion and more economical distribution, we waste our time in politics and con? tribute to our owu dlscomforture." Of course, that fellow speaks most? ly for Pittsburgh, lie ought tu come down to Richmond and get a few point ers. Here we have politics all the year! around. If It la not a regular election it's a primary that's on hand; if It Is .not a Stato election, it'a a city select? ing its officers, or elso It's a national election, and during Die very short intervals in which some of these are not on hand and at all ether limes, us for that matter, a bee hive of small politicians are wire-pulling around the City Hull and looking after the loaves and t:i?s crumbs that may fall from the municipal tabu-, but all the while Richmond people keep right along with business. That is just Richmond's way. Siie dotes on a poli? tical scramble, but she never neglects business to enjoy it. Everybody here is watching the Roosevelt-Taft prize hght and everybody is Interested ... the Clark-Underwood, Wilson-Harmon scramble, but nobody Is loosing a minute from business on that account. That isn't Richmond's style. As to Tree Trimming. Here Is a suggestion I get from the Oh'o Stale Journal, and It read as it It had been written csnjeclolly for the consideration of the people of Rich? mond and the charming suburbs: ? There is one thing a man should be examined for. and that Is tree prun? ing. This la something all the people aie interested In?having the shade trees artistically and scientifically trimmed. "There should be a regulation Dial would prevent any person l.tit a sklll ?d and competent man to trim the trees . f a city, and to this llcenso should be '. a .I'-ale of prices, so that his monopoly may not prove u burden to the city, for It is quite certain as soon as he gels a license he will raise his price from H to or thereabouts."

LIKE PICKING MONEY IN ROAD - Too Much Can't Be Said in Favor of tlie Home Canneries. "Tho Times-Dispatch cannot say too much on the subject of home canneries on the farms. I mean little establish? ments that aro capable of bringing to the farmer, especially If he llveB clos to town, a lot of money that he would otherwise never see, for his surplus vegetables .and fruits nre now bMng thrown away." Thus vvrltos a wide nwako Char lotto county man and he asks me to print nn tntercslltiK story which he says he clipped from a Tennessco pap:r. the name of which he did not mention, or due credit would be given. Hero is ? the story: "Thro? years ago I paid 1600 for my little farm of fifteen acres, and last year I sold nearly $1,000 worth of stun 1 from lt. I should hate to take $2,000 1 for It now?In fact, would not." This statement, mane by an cnthu.t In Stic young farmer of Middle Tenne- ' sse?, naturally brought many ques- I tints to the mind of his intcrestod ! auditor, more especially alnco a well- . worn crutoh lying across the arm of his chair ivas slient proof of a hand? icap under which many would have ut? terly given up. The pleasant llttlj home, the bright, rontented faces of wife and children, the well-kept prom- I Igen, all spoke of success, and ot?'3 vylio knew some of the circumstances of the brawj struggle against heM-vy odds which had been modi for the past few years in that home, could not refrain from expressing a desire to know more j of thg ways In which suc.css had been won. Cripple Telia All About It. "It luis boon largely One to roy| canner," he said, "that has helped* me to turn the scale agalti&t failure." And then he told something of the how and why of the business as he had found it in his two years of experience. The little farm wan bought with the Idon of ruining truck crops for the nearby market. Having had a little experience In the canning busi? ness, the Idea naturally suggested It? self that a small outltt might help to dispose of tho surplus to a good ad? vantage, KO a medium-sized canner wan Installed 'two years ago at a cost of about $15. The first year only 2.000 cans were packed, mostly of to? matoes und green beans. These found such ready sale thut the second year tlie output wuh more than doubled, ag? gregating over ?.?b? cans. Not only wcre home-grown products prepared for market, but considerable custom work was uone for other people, who wore beginning to learn thut it wus the cheapest and surost way of put? ting up their winter's supply. So great has grown the demand, both for the market goods and for the custom work, that far more extensive plans are being made for the present year. Commonda the Situation. "By the aid of my canner 1 am able to control the local tomato market." he went on. "Bring the heaviest pro? ducer of that article in tho vicinity, the grocers look lo mo for their steady supply. Last year 1 held tho prlcu above a dollnr for all the early varie? ties, and when the demand began to lull off a little at that price 1 Quit selling and went to canning. "When the dealers saw they could not 'bluff' me into dropping on my | price they Just went on paying It, and, of course, nil the other local tomato grower? got the benefit of it as well us 1. When I take tomatoes to market I only select the tlnest ones?large, smooth, flawless beauties that look the price. All the test goes to the canner. Even for that, however, noth Ing Mit that which is absolutely fresh anil well-ripened Is used, for I try to keep my canned goods of the high? est quality. In tiiis way I do not have lo offer two grades of fruit, as one must if he has no canner. I can bold the standard up to first grade goods throughout. U 1 had to sell two grades on the market it would not be long bet?re people would be buying only the lower priced fruit for can? ning, which would soon compel me to lower the price on the fancy pro? duct." Selling Canned Goods. I The canned tomatoes found a ready sale In the loci; market nt $2 a case, and by October every can was sold. So great was the success of tho vent? ure that this year a considerable acreage for tomatoes has been secured of neighboring farmers, and plans are being made to inn tho'ctinncr through? out the season, instead of at odd I spells, as heretofore. I Although this man's specialty Is tomatoes, he also handles a grcajt many beans. ,\ great many beans aro canned for other people, who bring | Ihcm In cleaned, snapped, and ready j for cooking. For this a charge of 6 1 cents u can is made, tho cans being j rurnlshed. Tiif.se beans thatj r*?Vc | canned for market bring $1.20 per dozen cans. unly three-pound cans are used. The demand has alway? far exceeded the supply, as the product is superior to the ordinary factory-pre? pared goods. ^ Docs a t'anurr Pnyf .Ves. The cuns mid labels cos', a trlfl'of j over 3" cents ., dozen, when hough*! by the thousand As) soon as tho Ca I puclty of the H:tir> plant will warrant I their being bought in car lots this; price can be considerably lowered. So I far ns the work Itself Is concerned. It I Is very simple, and can be done suc? cessfully by any one old enough to i follow directions carefully. I "lines a canner pay? It has enabled I me to pay for my farm, nnd has given me work that 1 could do In splto of I my physical handicap. It has helped j me to keep up the market price on my ; fresh produce, and given me a profi ; table way of disposing of surplus fruU . and vegetables. I certainly have ' found It a paying proposition, and j should not think of running my farm j without it. Even for our ?mi use ! at honte It would be economy to use I h canner, besides being far more con i ver.ient than any of tho old methods of putting up one's winter supplies. Boy?'
