paoe nrcm1. GOVERIIOB HAPPY OVER AN ESCAPE Glad He Was Not Drawn Into A Factional Scrap in The Party. A BIG ROW IS BREWING MARSHALL WAS, ASKED TO BUTT INTO THE INDIANAPOLIS MAY ORALTY TROUBLE, , ' BUT HE TURNED IT DOWN. Indianapolis, July 15. Governor Marshall believes he has narrowly es caped being drawn Into the factional fight in the democratic party in this city which has raged for years be tween the Taggart faction and the antis. He is congratulating himself too, that he has been able to keep out of it. A city election-will be held in this city this fall, and the only candidates announced "for the democratic nomin ation for mayor are Charles E. Clark, a lawyer whom Tom Taggart is support ing, Charles A. Gauss, who was a mem ber of the last legislature and a grocer named W. A. Kroll. who has no more chance of the nomination than a lame rabbit. They Are Disgusted. , , . The rank and file of the democrats in the city are diBgusted with the out look. None of these candidates is ac ceptable to the party, and It is con ceded that if either one Is nominated he will be defeated as sure as the election comes around. It means a sure victory for the republicans. Even the governor has fears of this kind. Recently there sprang up a demand for former Mayor John W. Holtrman to come out for the nomination. It was a cinch that he could have the nomination if he would only announce himself and go after it. But Holtzman was not willing to go into the race un less the rest of the candidates would withdraw. A large portion of the par ty was anxious that this be done and negotiations were on for some time be tween the followers of Gauss and Clark and Holtzman looking to that end. There was a hitch some where and the aid of Governor Marshall was sought in the effort to clear up the sit uation. He was asked to bring about the withdrawal of the other candi dates. Not For Thomas. It was this that the governor re fused to have anything to do with. He said he did not propose to mix up In the local situation and get his fingers burned. He would not line up with any faction of the party, and he fear ed that if he butted in anywhere he would get the worst of it. So he refused to mix in the scrap, and the result was that yesterday Holtzman announced that he will not be a candidate for the nomination. Governor Marshall said he wished to do all in i his power to promote har mony in the . party, anywhere in the state, but that he did not propose to allow anyone to use him. ECONOMY. IND .

Two Practical and Inexpensive Plans to Prevent Ravages of Borers. The most difficult matter about growing squashes is to protect the vines from the various insects that prey upon them. This is especially true in the home garden and small plots near buildings or near where squashes or other vine crops were grown the previous year, because the insects hibernate in the buildings and in the grouud near the vines they fed upon for the winter. For the striped cucumber beetle there Is no poison or repellent that will prove effective and satisfactory at all times. The box plant protector shown in the cut is 12 by 12 inches and six inches high, cover ed with wire screen, which Is set over the hill when the seeds are planted and left on until the plants get too large. Protectors of this type may be made of old pine boxes or other odds and ends, and they need not cost over 5 cents apiece, even if the lumber must be purchased, Making a Big Hit Fatima Cigarettes offer a high-class smoke at a moderate price and smokers everywhere recognize their unusual value. Selected tobaccos, skillful blending, clean manufacture, careful inspection all contribute to the excellence of the Fatima blend. Generous quantity enables Fatima smokers to combine enjoyment with economy. THE AMERICAN TOBACCO COMPANY PAYS TO " RAISE WEEDS." BOX PLANT PROTECTOR. second cut, is made entirely of wire screen. The one showu was made by cutting a circular piece of wire screen twenty-tour inches : in ' diameter and then folding over a section, amounting to one-fourth to one-third of the cir cumference, and fastening with short pieces of small wire pushed through the meshes and the ends twisted to gether. It gives a good idea as to how these protectors are made. - At re tail prices the protectors made this way will cost 8 cents each, but they have this advantage over the box atyle the light and air hare full ac cess to the plants, as a glance at the ink bottle in the wire plant protector will prove the bottle being placed in the center of . the protector. . These pictures were taken early in April, and the ink bottle had to do duty in place of the plants. Another advantage; of this style is that the protectors may be nested together and stored easily WIBB PLAXT PROTECTOR. when no longer needed. If given a coating of coal tar or some weather proof paint o(asionally these protect ors should last for years. Some of the smallest beetles can crawl through the meshes of wire screen, but one can easily kill the very few that get Inside. The bush or sucamer squashes if taken when tender and cooked like eggplant are much superior to that well known vegetable. Of course where the bush squashes are about mature and before the borers leave the stem to hibernate in the soil the vines should be pulled and destroyed to kill the borer. Tfcto should be done about Aug. l; the time varies with the latitude. Spraying the first four or five Joints of the squash vine (not the leaves) with kerosene emulsion is a good plan, as also are catching and kill ing the adult moth, which is very con spicuous and easily found when once known. However, the trap crop plan wilt be found to be the most practical and satisfactory method of dealing with the squash borer. In using the above described screen protectors it Is well to remember that the soil should be drawn up about the edges of the box or wire screen and firmed down so as to be sure that none of the bugs can crawl under the sides. Foley s Honey and Tar not only stops chronic coughs that weaken the constitution and develop into con sumption, but heals and strengthen the lungs. It affords comfort and relief in the worst cases of chronic bronchitis, asthma, hay fever and lung trouble. A. G. Luken Co. These "Plants Out of Place" Have a Fixod Market Value. Money in weeds? To be sure. The national department of agriculture has been for many years telling the farm ers of the large money value going to waste each year in this country in the shape of pernicious 'weeds and has been issuing bulletins with directions for collecting, curing and selling the weeds. A quarter of a century ago Dr. George B. Loring, the commission er of agriculture, called attention to Another style, in the j tne fact tnat in Germany many of the commonest and most pernicious weeds that the American farmer has to con tend with were successfully and prof itably cultivated. Burdock, dandelion, witch , grass, foxglove, mullein, hore hound, jimson, mustard and water hemlock are among our commonest weeds and grow In great profusion al most everywhere In the United States. Ordinarily they are regarded merely as troublesome weeds. The trouble, of course, is in the lazy habit of attempt ing to grow weeds and cultivated crops on the same land at the same time. So It often happens that the witch grass between the potato rows Is more , valuable than the tubers in the hills. When you raise weeds yon must make a business of it. Land that will raise nothing else will raise weeds. The jimson grows in rank profusion about the feed lot, the front yard is yellow with dandelion flowers, and the flow ers of the mullein bedeck the pastures. The burdock grows in the roadside fence corners, and the waste lot pro duces an abundance of witch grass and comfrey, yet a majority of the drug weeds used in medicine in this coun try are still Imported and paid for at a high rate. j Without counting wormwood, tansy and rhubarb, all of which are weeds in favored places, and without including catnip or pennyroyal or any of the mints, the American people are pay ing out more than $300,000 a year in hard earned money for Imported weeds which are growing wild In near ly every part of the country.

B.000,000 5 250.000 The knowledge that there is money in the very common and much .de spised weeds Is spreading every year, and a very considerable industry In medicinal weeds has arisen, but it is far short of what it should be. The average farmer cannot bring himself to regard as other than a heresy the declaration that a weed Is simply a useful plant out of place. The price paid by big jobbing drug houses for leaves, flowers or roots of the commoner weeds which afflict the farmer with their presence when he lets them get out of place are as fol lows: Dandelion roots, dried; jimson weed, leaves and seeds, poison hem lock, freshly plucked, and dried flow ers and leaves and dried and cleaned seed of black and white mustard, 5 cents a pound; burdock root, sliced and dried. 7 cents a pound; dried leaves and blossoms of borehousd and wild foxglove,- 6 to 7 cents a pound; dried blossoms of the tall pasture mullein. 60 cents a pound if sealed in tight jars. In addition to the above stand ard drugs the dried leaves of coke- weed and Irilimru. gold thread and jack-In-tbe-pulpit are marketed, as well as the leaves and flowers of tansy, lobelia, . boncset. catnip and a dozen other very common plants, all of which are in demand at the market prices. Sanitary Poultry. Nest. The present day tendency to employ sanitary measures in the dairy, the stable, the dog house, etc., has at last extended to the poultry yard. The in dustrious hen Is to be provided with a sanitary nest which can be readily washed and scrubbed, as occasion de mands. This recent development Is shown In the accompanying illustra tion. The nest is made of wire and Is supported in a suitable housing, both of which can be removed from th chicken hcns vli"i flonnlp? Is neces sary. When thus removed they an be conveniently placed In a suitable re ceptacle containing bol Ing water and thoroughly cleansed of all Impuritie and undesirable insects. Money In Horey.
