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
"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."

Young Tennessee Toiler, Who
Relates His Experience.
LIKE PICKING MONEY IN ROAD
Too Much Can't Be Said in
Favor of tlie Home
"Tho Times-Dispatch cannot say too
much on the subject of home canneries

the farmer, especially If he llveB clos
to town, a lot of money that he would
otherwise never see, for his surplus

"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
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

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?

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. ^

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.
