tl The dandelion the bane of those who labor to make beautiful
i their lawns can be eradicated by a simple process according to one
of the professors in Colorados Agricultural college
The most effective and practicable method of clearing a dande
lion infested lawn other than by hand digging is by the use of iron
sulphate applied as a spray The writer has succeeded with three
applications in entirely killing all plants of this common lawn pest
without injuring the grass A portion of a lawn so badly infested
that hardly anything but dandelions was visible a year ago is now
without a single plant and the grass has thickened a good deal in
consequence A solution of copperas of iron sulphate made by dis
solving at the rate of 14 pounds of the salt in a gallon of water
should be applied to the lawn with a spray pump so as to wet every
plant It will not do to use a common sprinkler The solution must
be put on in the form of a fine spray applied with some force to be
most effective A common bucket spray pump or even a hand atom
izer for very small areas is suitable providing it makes a fine
forcible spray Do not try to hit the dandelions only but cover every
square Inch of the lawn In this way all seedling plants will be
v killed Put on a second application in two or three weeks and a third
and possibly a fourth later in summer if any of the dandelions start
into growth The grass will be blackened for a short time but soon
t recovers and after a water and mowing will appear darker green
E than before Do not allow the solution to get on cement or stone
walks as it produces a rather permanent yellow stain
I The above method of ridding a lawn of dandelions is recommend
1 ed by government experts for gardens where weeds are thick The
iron sulphate will adhere to the rough leaves of the weeds and de
1 stroy them while the garden stuff will shed the solution and remain
I I The treatment is a simple one and should be tried on the dande
lions in the lawns
Great Britain has a new king today George V The king of
yesterday is dead While the people mourn they also proclaim
with hope for the future their new leader
The death of a king is a more solemn serious affair for mon
archies than the passing of a president of a republic such as ours
I Here the president holds only temporary sway often only four
years there the monarch reigns for life if not forced to abdicate
The king is viewed as better than the common people and as made
of a superior clay i here presidents are made from the common peo
I ple and are not accredited with any divine rights
Necessarily in a country where the ruler is acclaimed liege
lord by the grace of God and where he is held to be the defender
of the faith religious sentiment added to the political combine to
make of the change of rulers a most momentous event
In England today the death of King Edward has not only a
religious and political aspect but it has to do with the business
interests of London the metropolis of the empire The season of
social activities and business prosperity was approaching but the
death of the monarch forbids gaieties and throws a pall over London
and as a result the country will feel the blues
Furthermore there were pending some great problems of na
tional policy which now cannot be readily solved The question
of the budget is facing parliament and the king was to have played
an important part in limiting the power of veto of the house of
o The new king a comparatively young man may surprise his
countrymen by proving equal to the occasion as he has been a stu
dent of parliamentary proceedings and all public questions and in
some respects is better equipped than his father was when he
ascended the throne
Here is a brief biographical sketch of King Edward
f He was born at Buckingham palace November 9 1841 the son
of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert of SaxeCoburg and Gotha
Educated by private tutors on a plan outlined by his father he later
studied at Edinburgh Oxford and Cambridge A long period of
travel followed during which he went over Europe and the east
In 1860 he made a triumphant tour through the United States and
The prince was married March 10 1863 to Princess Alexandra
oldest daughter of the Danish prince who some months later became
King Charles IX
Six children were born two of whom the Duke of Clarence and
Prince Alexander died The surviving children are George Fred
erick Prince of Wales Duke of Cornwall and York who now be
comes king Princess Louise who was married to the Duke of Fife
Princess Victoria Alexandra and Princess Maud Charlotte who was
married to Prince Karl of Denmark now King Haakon VII of Nor
The king was of the house of Hanover which dates from the
succession of the throne of King George I in 1714
Edward VII assumed the throne on the death of Queen Vic
toria January 22 1901
He was an enthusiastic patron of racing and was fond of yacht
ing cricket athletics and shooting
When in 1909 his horse Minoru won the derby at Epsom there
was a scene of enthusiasm at the track which was unparalleled
Twice beforo he became the king he won the derby with Persim
son in 1896 and with Diamond Jubilee in 1900 In personal appear
ance he was the typical Englishman He was rather below average
stature of strong and heavy build His ruddy face betokened good
health and good spirits up to a short time ago
He wore his gray beard trimmed to a sharp point His thin
circle of gray hair diminished until he was quite bald Even in his
latter days he continued one of the best dressed men in Europe and
was regarded as a model for quiet refinement of dress and bearing
Twice before ascending the throne Edwards life was despaired
of In 1871 he was so ill with typhoid fever that for weeks his death
was expected In 1898 he fell on the stairs during a visit to Baron
Ferdinand de Rothschild at Wad dedon Manor and fractured a
knee cap Complications ensued and for a time his condition was
dangerous His coronation originally sot for Juno 26 1902 was
postponed until August 9 by illness and was a pageant of almost un
paralleled splendor and the occasion for celebration throughout the
world His short reign was peaceful after the conclusion of the Boer
war which was in progress when he became king
Several times the kings life has been in danger from anarchists
or cranks On April 4 1900 when as crown prince he was in
Brussels Jean Sipide a 15yearold boy fired at him as he was
seated held in a railway coach The shot did no harm The boy was
mentally irresponsible
A plot to assassinate him and King Carlos of Portugal while
he was ln Llsbon in 1903 was discovered and frustrated
The king was always a great traveler and was nearly as well
known on the boulevards of Paris and in the casinos of Biarritz
and Hamburg as he was along Piccadilly

Senator Cullom chairman of the
senate committee on foreign affairs
expressed his sorrow to learn of the
death of King Edward
I think he said thero will be
more or less confusion In Great Brit
ain as a result of his sudden death
I believe the people have boon token
by surprise I bollere of course that
his son Prince George is a very com
petent man
The king has been a great source
of satisfaction to the English people
because he has been a discreet and
kindly man and suited the people of
Great Britain perfectly
Before his moth or death the
people I think feared the time when
she should pass away as they had
serious doubts whether the king would
conduct himself with that great pro
priety and consideration of the rights
and welfare for the country ho has
Although King EAanl has been
a great friend of tho American na
tion and I believe the British people
generally share that friendliness I
think there win not be any serious
disturbance between Great Britain and
the United States on account of the
kings death
Baron Uchlda Japanese ambassador
to the United States said that King
Edward was the foremost friend of
the worlds peace
It Is a great loss not only to Eng
land but to the United States and
Japan and tho whole world he said
The wisest and shrewdest stntea
man and dlplomalls I have ever
known was the judgment pronounc
ed upon King Edward by the late
John Hay And Mr Hay was no mean
judge being himself in the front rank
of scholars of statecraft and diplo
macy HP was at that time not long
from the court of SL James where ho
had been America nambassador and
enjoyed the advantage of a close per
sonal intimacy with King Edward
who was never weary of learning at
first hand of tho wonderful develop
ment of the AngloStocon race across
tho Atlantic
Then Mr Hay pointed out that the
achievements of King Edward not
only as sovereign of the realm hut as
Prince of Wales during tho long life
of his mother Queen Victoria had
been accomplished not by devious
ways but straightforwardly by appeals
to common sense and regard for the
common good He believed in plain
hoarltoheart talks with his brother
sovereigns on the continent and
sometimes to the disgust of the train

Pneumonia following bronchitis Is
believed to have been the cause of
