One oi the biggest scenes in the play Is that la s which an entire Indian camp is blown t up. In the plot ot "Gold and the Wo- t man," Duskara, chief ot an Indiau t tribe, is robbed of a land grant through the trickery ot Dugald Chandos, an early English settler. t ' Chandos. after Duskara's refusal to t ' sell the land, mines a piece of ground t - and lures the Indians to the trap by a scattering bottles of gin and whiskey i about.

(Another of the aeries on howto run your own garden. what anil when lo plant, how to plant ami rare for It, and cut the cost of living). BY A GARDENER The secret of hlg crops from the lackyard garden lies in using every rich of ground all summer long! You can get two or more crops from he same ground by keeping your on working rrom early spring until ack Frost appears. Gardeners speak of this ns companon and successive cropping. They nean that early maturing plants, retiring little space are sown in the ame row or between rows of late mauring plants. That's companion cropling. When you sow seed of the same ilant every ten days or two weeks rom early spring until along toward mrly summer, you are doing succesivo cropping. That insures you a supply of fresh egetables for a long stretch. Othervise you would get too much lettuce ir radishes or onions ready for the able at the same time and a few veeks later would have none. A one-crop garden allows a lot of tround to lie idle most of the lalo ummer and fall. In extreme northern latitudes the ummers are so short that only one :rop can be grown, but even there vlntcr lettuce, late spinach and winter adishes can bo sown in rows from vhlch early lettuce, radishes, onions nd splnarh have been harvested. It goes without saying that if you vant to get two crops out of the iround you will have to furnish more ilant food than for one crop. This acans greater fertility?more manure ir commercial fertilizer. When you get manure for the first padlng save enough for later crops. When vou begin planting the first eed, peas, lettuce, radishes, onion sets pinach or endive, sow them between lie rt>ws you have reserved for late abbage, potatoes, corn, beans. Then 10 days or two weeks later ow more of these same vegetables in heir own rows, giving but a part?a bird say?of the space allotted t) hem at that sowing, ltipaat 10 day-; at?i. and a third time. New you can begin harwwiug from h-tce plants between tho rows ot Is lei uaturing crops. And by this time hesu later plants will ha/o arrived it the stage wlturc they nc.i", all the Hum tnty can getWhen vou remove the cunpanion iarts pat manure where they stood, hot is. m the ground belw-e > the allicairti vegetables, toniatcorn, ate prtatoes aud late cabudgt Soon after the first third of your arly vegetable rows will be ready for ating. As soon as they, are out fertiIze that ground and sow more of the tamo seed, which will be in eating hape about the time the last third f those rows are exhausted. Then begin with this last third and ow winter lettuce, winter radish or ate spinach. Repeat- this operation s the rest of these rows are harvestd. I plant peas front last March to une for succession crops, and spinch in March. May and October. Itadshes are planted for two crops early n the spring and in September. For the first crops use early varleics. for the fall sowing use winter arieties. Hush beans may be plant-1 id in May tor first crop and in Au:ust for a second. I'ole beans are ilanted in May and occupy the space ,11 summer. Cabbage, both early and ate. need the space all summer and iro planted outdoors at about the ame time. Between rows of the late ou can plant a companion crop. RODUCER GAS FOR GLASS MEN HARRISBUKG, March 27?A chafer has been granted to the Greene lounty Coal and Coke* company of 't.

HARDFIGHT. THE SPECIAL* Big Target Shows High Posi Great Difference Betwet Time to Ente The announcement of the six sue-! rial prizes in the West Virginian yes j terday met with the instant approval! of all the candidates and the public in general. The candidates who just missed tho Honor Roll, will thus he given nn opportunity to win an even better award during tills week. The candidates who haven't been doing much themselves, lather dependiug upon the efforts of their friends, bail, luw no ?. ujpit- uppuriuauy. An opportunlty to gain a fresh start and at the same time win a second award. The six special prizes are headed ; by $.10.00 in gold, which will bo won by the candidate who turns in the most money on subscriptions throughout the week. The second prize is $25.00 in gold, which goes to the pet i son who turns in the next highest amount on subscriptions, the third 1 prize is $10.00 in gold which goes to the person turning in the third high est amount. Then there are prizes ] of $5.00 earli in gold which goes to | the next three candidates who turn in the most money on subscriptions. This is the opportunity for everyone in i the contest to win two prizes one spe-1 clal. and one at the close. This week is the most important week of all in the Golden Festival. The long promised table showing the nine leaders in the nine highest positions of the whole campaign up to tonight, appears in today's issue of The West Virginian. This big table shows the most amaz-1 Ing situation which could possibly be conceived of. iu such a campaign.' It shows that the leadership of The West Virginian Great Golden Festival | is just as much of a conjecture?just as much in doubt today as it was two or three weeks ago when the campaign I was first announced. Nearly everyone of the nine positions, not one has enough of an advantage over the others to amount to anything, less than an hour's work would be required by ony one of the candidates to overcome what very small lead might be shown by this largoi. n sucn a icaa is really shown. | New Schedule Published On another page of this issue of The West Virginian, the entire vote schcd* I 25?VOr IN rI Great Gold OF THE WES1 For ?

This schedule is entirely different from anything of the kind ever before published in connection with such a campaign. Instead of having a new vote offer to present to the candidates each week, as is most usual, the management of the Golden Festival prefers io he original. Heitce the new schedule, which is called a ucciuttig voic scneuuie. will bo In force. This schedule is figured using tho old schedule as a basis. These coming two weeks, tho votos will count the most of the entire campaign. They will bo Just three times the old schedule. During these two weeks each ten dollars' worth of subscriptions will count one hundred and fifty thousand extra votes. During the tinal week of the campaign, it will only be double the regular schedule. There will be no more vote otters of any kind, different from the announcement. under any circumstances. No extra inducements lit tho way of different vote values will be offered under any circumstances, so you can go ahead and mako your plans for winning, without worrying about "whether there will lie anything larger next week." There will not! You have the entire schedule before you. Now go ahead and make lite thousuud dollars your thousand! rES-25 'he [en Festival t virginian.
