From London comes with almost 1
picturesque variations the familiar
story of final discovery of the ideal
steam turbine engine-this time a S.
r marvel which uses but one-third the si
steam required by the latest improved
piston engines, and scarcely half the Il
amount needed to run the Parsons hi
steam turbine adopted for British tor- h
pedo boat destroyers. The rotary
steam engine has been long in coming,
rchiefly because inventive genius for a
over a century has been directed ax
toward and exhausted in the perfec- T
tion of the more familiar and more
tractable types the essential integers d(
of which are cylinder, valve, piston re
and crank. Should the steam turbine ax
become a commercial actuality it bl
would find the field of mechanical
power quite ready for its reception. Si
High speed and ever higher speed, is th
the keynote to which modern machin- -
ery rings and resounds again. c
A curious case is reported from ar
Sharon, Pa., which goes to show that na
a knowledge of common wild plants is o1
extremely valuable. Three boys ate h
some berries which looked like wild
grapes, and in a short time were seized
with convulsions and died. The action
of the poison was so much like that of e
strychnine that a worthy farmer was
accused of putting that drug into cider to
to punish the boys for stealing it. For- th
tunately for the farmer, he had not T
bought any poison to kill bugs on his h
crops, and so escaped a serious time, TI
for nothing could be proved against gn
him. Local physicians sent specimens co
of the berries found in the boys' CO
pockets to Professor Thomas Meehan,
of the Academy of Natural Sciences in on
Philadelphia, and he identified them as tin
moon seed. In his report he said: B
"The plant is the moon seed-appro- re
priately so called from the form of the th
seed within tne pulp-and botanically sex
Menispermum Canadense. It is very Bu
closely related to the well-known -
poisonous drug Locculus Indicus of the
pharmacists. The action of the poison me
is said to be similar and almost the Ne
same as strycnnine. The leaves re- an
semble in form those of the English r
ivy, but are much smaller and thinner.
The vine is of slender growth, reach
ing the height of about ten feet in the ha
season. In the fail and winter there is
nothing to be seen but the clusters of t

But a small percentage of the pub
lic appreciates the qualifications pos

11 the remainder ue is simply an unus
II ually good gardener, or one who is
too much above menial work and de
sires to theorize. They do not believe
he can be on the same plane as men
$ of other professions, and he has to
t force his way to the front by showing
e results-and these do not come quick

Like any other profession, there are
"quacks," to use a meaning popular
term, and the true landscape artist
must beat down the barrier of distrust

limited and they will make any kind of

so far as practicable, be a secondary

increasing demand which hah come I

was the first man in the State to con
ceive the idea of propagating the root
and now has over 30,000 healthy
plants. The product brings over four
dollars a pound at the ,present time.
There are others who desire to engage
in the ginseng culture, but find it diffl.
cult to obtain either the plants or seed
at a reasonable price. The unabated
demand for the root In the Orient
keeps the pr:ce at such a mark that it
would-be unprofitable to use the roots
in starting a farm, and the seeds are
so rare that they sell for one dollar
