So ef fective was it that it was the fourth inning Lefore a single Washington man saw 'first base. In the whole game only one man succeeded in reaching third base. The support "'Pat" received helped some of course but there was never a time when he was really in the hole. Chicago got all of its runs in the first two innings and Washington was not able to score at all until the eighth when Schlafly got a three bagger at the beginning of the inning and was brought in by Stahl. Chicago's runs were due to Isbell's effective hitting One two bagger in the first inning after Jones had walked and the other in the second with Tannehill and Patterson on bases.

Emery comes from the island of Naxos, In the eastern Mediterranean, whence it has been exported for tha last two centuries or more. The beds are in the northeast of the Island, the deposit descending into some of tho neighboring islands, the emery being iound in lenticular masses, resting on layers of schist in limestone, almost identical with Parian marble, the fin est marble known, which comes from the island of Paros, close by. There are about 300 men engaged In the trade, all of whom have to be married before they are admitted to the fra ternity. The material Is much too hard to be dug out or even blasted. Great fires are lighted round the blocks till the natural cracks expand with the heat, and levers are then inserted to pry them apart ; This system la continued until th blocks are reduced in size to masses of a cubic foot or less, and they are then shipped as if they 'Were coals. There are said to be 20,000,000 tons yet avail able at Naxos. It is one of the hard est substances yet known, coming next to the diamond, and among its crystal line forms knownto the jeweler? ire the ruby and the sapphire. Caelly Explained.

Some persons advise xakinir nftpr each mowing. I do not, because, the clippings drop down into the grass and form a mulch, which I consider of great benefit. They also heln to fer tilize the soil. The lawn that is; not mowed often enough will not loot ttpH after you have been over it with the mower, because there was growth enough to partially hide the sward up on wnicn it falls. This will wither anA turn brown in a day or two and most ly detract from the beauty of the lawn. Jiut ir you keep your lawn well mowed and that means goinc over it at least three times a week in ordinary sea sons tne amount clipped off at each mowing will be so slight that there will not be enough of it to show.
