EVIL MOMENT FOR BOASTER Worst of It Was That He Fondly Thought He Had Been Making an Impression. The cheap swell in the railway com partment was airing his superiority to the unutterable disgust of bis fel low travelers. "You know," he remarked, "I don't often ride third class. One meets such frightfully common people." One of his victims groaned. I generally travel by motor, con tinued his "bragship," "but my chauf feur is laid up at present, wretched fellow." Thus he piled on the agony. "All tickets ready!" shouted the col lector, and our hero handed up his with an air of condescension. "Sorry, sir," said the porter, with a grin, "but this is your uncle's, I pre sume." Amid the jeers of the other passen gers, Mr. Boastful changed compart ments with alacrity, taking his pawn ticket with him. London Tit-Bits. All Boys and Girls should write to Wm.

Stock must be fenced off the yard House Plants Used to THE VERANDA BOX An ideal veranda box Is planted with roses down its center, and the remaining space filled with standard, climbing and drooping annuals. The veranda box should be 15 Inches wide, ten inches deep and as long as desired. Bore an Inch hole through every square foot of the bot- oin of the box; then put in a layer of broken crockery, pebbles or cinders for drainage. -Roses thrive best in a rich but firm soil; therefore, stiffen the soil with clay, and enrich with well rotted cow manure. Plant the roses, If teas, six inches apart, and if hybrids, twice that dis tance, and firm the soil well about them. Place the boxes where they will get the sun most of the day. AMONG THE FLOWERS Mixed hyacinths answer for the out-door planting but separate colors are inexpensive. The Roman hyacinth, for early pot ting, will give bloom for the holidays, and is satisfactory for out-door plant ing. The sooner you send in your order for bulbs, the better bulbs you will get, as the florist's stock 1b full, and choice can be made. Tulip bulbs are inexpensive, and should be ordered by the hundred.

When the roses bloom cut back to a strong and well developed bud, and In a short time this shoot will grow, and develop into a rose. Water thoroughly when the soil is dry to the touch, but never sprinkle roses when they need watering. Give them plenty of it. Late In the fall carefully remove the roses with plenty of soli, and pack them together in a well drained cor ner of the garden. Bury them in strawy manure and leaves held down by cornstalks or thick brush. Next spring, when the roses start Into growth, cut back to within five or six Inches of the ground, and plant into their boxes with new soil. Dis turb the roots as little as possible.

Tulips for indoor blooming must have a cooler temperature, or the buds will blast. They are apt to fall a prey to anhls, if care is not taken. For outdoors, they are simply gor geous in color.

THROUGH COURT LITIGATION Bill to Protect Wives and Children Against Desertion By Husbands. Bill For Commitment of Drug Users. Nashville. When the legislature reconvened Senator Ashcroft of Shelby, chairman of finance committee, introduced the revenue bill, which carried increased revenues to the state amounting to nearly $300,000. Under new provisions, the great bulk of this will come from court liti gation. Every defendant in court must pay higher fees than he lias been paying heretofore by about $2.50 each. This will affect Shelby more than any other county, because of the amount of litigation. The state tax commission is ready with its report. A surprise will come, it Is said, in that a recommendation will be made whereby the great bulk of intangible property will be brought out of hiding in the form of stocks, bonds and notes. "I expect to fight it to the finish," said Representative Stanton. "Shelby county is already paying the state too much taxes in proportion to other counties." Among Shelby county bills intro duced were four companion bills by Representative Straus, protecting the wives and children against deserting husbands. The most important of these makes it a felony for a husband to desert his wife by leaving the stau This enables the state to have way ward husbands returned. Another of the Straus measures pro vides that while husbands are in the state or after they have been brouglr. back, they must support their wives. It is a misdemeanor for failure to do so. The remaining two bills carry the same provisions for the children as the other measures carry for wives. Inspection of Militia. The annual inspection of the organ ized militia of the state of Tennessee under the direction of Capt. W. N. Hughes, Jr., U. S. A. officer and in spector and instructor of the national guard of Tennessee, was held in Knox ville. Capt. Hughes' tour of inspec tion will consume practically the en tire month of March. On this inspection depends the amount of government funds which will be appropriated for the aid of the Tennessee militia. This appropriation is to be made for the fiscal year of 1916 and it will be based on the ac tual and total attendance. Income Tax Penalty Effective. Penalties for failure to file income tax schedules are effective in the in ternal revenue department. The mail has been so heavy at the collector's office that a large force was kept busy, t'he work continued Sunday so as to have as much as possible finished by March 1. As announced a few days ago, it is necessary for all persons de siring a few days' extension of time to make a written request for same and many such requests have been re ceived from individuals and corpora tions having overlooked the depart ment ruling. Drug Users' Bill. Representative McLaln of Shelby has a bill providing for the commit ment of drug users to insane asylums as the insane are now committed. He also has a fellow wservants' bill, mak ing railroads liable for death or injury to employes. A bill of this nature is also pending which makes railroads liable for the death only of the em ploye.

Bills dealing with tuberculosis are now being considered in 32 state leg islatures, according to an announce ment made by the National Associa tion for the Stud;' and Prevention of Tuberculosis. In six states Alabama, Arizona, California, Iowa, Tennessee and Wash ington bills are being considered which call for the reporting and regis tration of all living cases of tubercu losis. Alabama, Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and the District of Columbia are working for laws which will require that consump tives who refuse to observe sanitary regulations and are a menace to oth ers may be removed and detained in hospitals. In Alabama, Arizona, Cali fornia, Illinois, Maine and Missouri, legislation permitting the establish ment of county or local hospitals for tuberculosis are being discussed, and n California, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Missouri and New Hampshire state subsidies of $3 to $5 per week pe patient are being asked for such in stitutions. A more or less complete reorganization of the state health work is sought in several states, espe cially Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Texas and Arizona.
