The man of the house, U he be a smoker, ought to expend some of the surplus smoke on the plants, writes "Gt #L K." If he is permitted to smoke Indoors, place his chair in the plant window and Insist on his blowing the smoke from his pipe or cigar among the plants Instead of out in the room. I have always noticed that in homes where the male members of the family smoke that bouse plants are remark ably free from vermin. I am not advo cating the use of the weed, but simply stating a fact. A friend whose hus band Is required to smoke out of doors, or In the woodshed, has a box arranged to hold her plants when it Is necessary to give them treatment for vermin; in the cov er of the box 1 b a hole as large around as a silver dollar, to which a plug Is fitted. The of the house, when called upon for the service, takes his place In the woodshed with pipe and plant box and is required to expend a part at least of his smoke on the plants. It is quite amusing to see this "lord of creation" with a mouthful of smoke remove the plug from the plant box and send the smoke among the plants, but ual and he takes the idea somewhat In the nature of a good joke, both he and the wife are enthusiastic over the plan. the treatment is effect Growing Strawberries. Strawberries can be raised on almost any good farm soil, but a rich sandy loam Is preferable. Plow the ground In the fall, then in the spring replow and pulverize thoroughly, planting as goon as danger from frost is past. Cul tivate throughout the season, keeping a loose layer of earth on the top to act as a mulch. As soon as the ground is frozen so that It will bear up a team, cover with hay, straw or coarse manure of any kind. Leave this on until all danger of frost is past in the spring, then rake off the rows and let it re main between them until the berries are picked, after which cut off the plantB with a mower and when there is a brisk breeze, burn the whole patch. Enriching; Orchard*. Orchards will in time exhaust, at least partially, the fertility of the soil, and this exhaustion is especially no ticeable on soils which were not espec ially rich at the time the trees were planted. To make young trees grow more rapidly, a fertilizer should be used, containing a small per cent, of nitrogen (ammonia) mixed with potash and phosphates. For older orchards the nitrogen is not so necessary, while phosphates and potash should be increased, especially the quantity of potash. It Is frequently a good plan to stimulate top growth by sowing the orchard to crimson clover in late mer and turning it under in the spring. Have Fine ChryMantheniuiim. Vick says a point few amateurs prop erly understand is that In order to have fine chrysanthemums the plants or clumps must be taken up and divided every spring, starting every plant for the next season's bloom from a single one of the new shoots that crowd up thickly from the roots. It is easy to break these shoots out with a to each one, and when potted they grow rapidly. But if all the shoots cf the old root are left to grow as they spring up the result will be a crowded masB of mildewed leaves and sickly shoots, with a few clusters of small flowers. Divide your plants, give away what you can and throw the rest away. in root nilnerulN 1 So large a part of most fruits ls wa that we are apt to forget their oth chiefly min FrultN. rhich er constituents eral. All fruits require potash for their seeds, and this mineral also is to bo uecessary to aid in ripen ing the fruit. This it probably does by keeping the foliage healthy. Ap ples, pears and grapes are also bene fitted by applications of phosphate. With plenty of mineral fertilizers no stable manure will be needed. A leeful Plant. English Ivy Is one of the plants that seems able to take care of itself.

The plants stored for the winter In the cellar have now been In some time. Perhaps they need a little water or other attention. Frequent cleansing of the leaves of foliage? plants, by using tepid water and a sponge, lends to their attractiveness and is essential to the health of the plants. Just at this til when work with the flowers is very light, is a good time to consider what will be beat to plant in the garden. When the proper time comes everything must be in readiness so that no valuable time will be lost. To dean old flower pots green moss and u sort of white mold ban grown, scrub them vigorously with Band and water. This will make tho pots look bright and new.

The Body Transacts Much Business This Time. Dover, Del., May 8 —In the House of Representatives this afternoon Mr. Doinp sey gave notice of a bill providing for the establishment aud m&inteuanco of adivi siou of naval reserves for Delaware. The bill is similar to tho law In Pennsylvania, and will plaoo the marines under the oom* mand of tho officers of the National Guard of I)olaware. It is proposed to ostabllsh a division of fifty men, with headquarters in Wilming ton, and place thorn ut tho disposal of the Government for any duty which may be required of them. A party of representa tive young men have been drilling In Wil mington For some time, and If the bill be comes a law they will form the nucleus for the dlvlslou. They will probably be detailed to man one or the Government's auxiliary boats for service In the Delaware Bay and tho ocean front cf Delaware and New Jersey. In tho Senate the House bill was passed R rovidlpg for a geuoral educational law >r the Stato. It was amended so as to give the Governor the power to appoint the couuty superintendents. Tho general registration bill was referred back to com mittee, The two Houses are at logger heads over tho bill, however, aud tho shape in which it will pass is a matter of con jecture. The Senate killed the bill making the plumbing inspnorer Of Wilmington a member of the Board of Honlth The Houso passed the Kent County Levy Court commission bill and it wont to committee in the Senate. Tho Houso defontod tho bill giving tho Legislature discretionary power in the matter of tax laws, and the bill to en force the collection of the capitation tax was referred back to committee. The bill providing fora Stato Inspector of Boilers was defeated, blit the voto reconsidered. Senator Meredith gavo notice of bills clarifying real eatato In Wilmington and for municipal taxation. Ho also gave notlco of two bills which arc intended to assist the Wilmington police department. At present a warrant can not be Issued or ball takon oxoept by tho clerk of tho Municipal Court. Tho clerk cannot be present at' the City Hall all of the time, and in cousequenoo the police department sometimes loses valu able time in securiug warrants, as tho clerk has to bo called from his bed for the purpose. Tho now bills would give tbo house sergoanton duty at the City Hall tho power to issue warrauti when the clerk is absent. Ho will alHo bo allowed to take bail. Tho Houso reconsidered the voto by which tho Senate bill to allow tho Pho< ■ nix Fire Company of Wilmington nn in creased appropriation, was passed, aud re committed it. A number of people from Wilmington asked nhearing on tho matter before It became a law. There will be tnlk both for and against, and a lively time is expected when it finally comes up for pas sage. hero in tho Interest Patrick Nearv of the new city charter, and John T.

In addition to Buffalo Bill's Wild West representations, tho Congress of Rough Riders of the World will attract almost equal interest, In this congress will ap pear Vuqueroa from Moxico, Gauclios irotn South America, Arabs from the African desert nnd Cossacks from the steppes of Russia. These latter, hardy ami dexterous horsemen may bo consid ered us on tho border liue between tbo wild irregulars nnd trained und drilled military; for though they wear well known uniform, anil listed soldiers among the Cossacks of the Caucasian line, they ride with a wild,fierce dash und individuality not characteristic of any other bodies of cavalrymen. This doos not racau that they are not well drill ed iu their tactics and capable of going through their evolutions admirably; but thoy have a certain sort of spirited dom nnd capacity for independent per sonal demonstration which only perhaps tho French nnd Americans might, if couragcd thereto, display.
