Judge Martin, as a young lawyer and on first arrival in Chicago, thought himself fortunate in gaining an intro duction to Judge Gary-the Gary who tried the anarchists. The judge took a shine to the young chap and pro posed a game of billiards, wherein Martin made a technical error that he remembered for long. Gary played an old man's game, and Martin then, as now, was particularly handy with a cue. Picture a contest of 34 points with four balls on a four and one-half by nine table. The judge (barely bend ing), with a childish bridge and a nerveless stroke, missed his first shot Martin, in shirtsleeves, crouched over the table like a jockey piloting a win ner, and applied himself to rolling up a run. He had counted fifteen or twenty when he turned and saw the judge disappearing through the door and moving with ruffled dignity. The Watts Variation. Alfred Watts, the young futurist poet, was lunching with his publisher at a Broadway restaurant recently, and while waiting for his bill he amused himself by matching quarters with his host. After several dollars had changed hands, the publisher looked through the window at one of those entertaining little DetrQitobiles standing at the curb, and said, face tiously: "I'll match you for that car, Alfred." Mr. Watts tossed back his much photographed golden mane, and re marked, with this characteristic drawl, "Aw, don't he a piker! I'll match you for two dollars." Not the Ideal. "I want a sunny lot in life." '"You'll find a fNw shade trees a great improvement." A faint heart seldom lands a fellow in a breach of promise suit. FIND OUT The Kind of Food that will Keep You Well.

New Jersey in 1S91 was the pioneer state in providing state aid for public highways.

About rk- 5,000 miles of state highways were Lte completed in 1913 and about 6,000 - I miles in 1914, so that the last two te, years have been responsible for more than one-third of the entire state highway mileage. The state highways in America now exceed by 6,000 miles the national road system of France. To have state highway departments ad placed under non-partisan, efflcient control'; skilled supervision required in all construction work; a proper or-' classification of highway to insure in am ort telligent distribution of improve ments; an adequate provision for maintenance of highways from the i day of their completion-these are among the objects for which the of American Highway association is wag ice ing a vigorous campaign. :1v; PRACTICAL GOOD ROADS TEXT :hel Probably Three-Fourths of Difficulties Experienced in Season Could Be Eliminated. ifO unt How much better to drag the roads ed in early spring than to let the roads :ed themselves become a "drag" next sum Lke mer, when heavy teams loaded with produce must be hauled to market.

U ) part in,- at of Agrwicutu,,. fecause it is a useful cr'n for both his stock and hi, own I:unily, the farmer will find that it ' ill pay him to give more attnciition to rape tlianii it usually receive:;. As human food when it is often known as smooth or spring ihale, it is quite as good as kale or collards and may be prepared in the samne way. As a feed for hogs, shoep, cows and chicken::, it is the nmost important plant of the cabbage fanmily. The seed is also cheap, re tailing usually at about ten cents a pound. The most common use of rape is as a pasture crop for hogs or sheep. M\any aninnmals do not like rape at first, but will eat it readily after they have acquired the taste. A liberal supply of salt wxill tend to prevent the purging which rape often produces. With hors there is no danger from bloating. With cattle, how.ever, this danger does ex ist to some extent and it is well, there. fore, to avoid pasturing them on pure rape. If a supply of hay or straw is kept convenient, the animals will instinctively turn to that when they begin to bloat, and when cattle can pass readily from rape to grass pas ;ture, cases of bloating are rare. Un der any circumstances, however, rattle should not be turned into a rape pas ture when it is wet with dew or rain, or when they are very hungry. Cattle eat rape readily but destroy considerable by trampling, especially where the rape is broadcasted. In broad rows the damage is less, for the animals usually walk between the rows. When cut and stall fed, rape should be given to dairy cows just after milking; otherwise it may taint the milk. As a feed for all kinds of poultry rape is also excellent. Time of Seeding. Rape is a cool-season crop, and in the South should, therefore, be planted in the fall or in very early spring. The crop is not injured by ordinary win ters in the South, but of course the growth is slow in cold weather. In the fall it is best seeded from August 15 to October 15. Later seeding is scarcely advisable, except near the Gulf coast and in Florida. In the spring it should be seeded just as early as danger of freezes is past. The earlier seedings nearly always give the largest yields, as growth is arm W~eat (ur., ! t plant li' i I'ra : one varie S.wari 1. rnw in the e t States.

ROTS HURT SWEET POTATOES ------------WHEN TO CUT SUDAN SROTS HURT SWEET POTATOES IWHEN TO CUT SUDAN~ Greatest Losses in Oklahoma Due to Two Fungi-Crop Rotation Should Be Practiced. (By C. D. Learn, Oklahoma Agricultural College.) There are several diseases which are quite common to the sweet potato in this state, but probably the great est losses are due to the two fungi causing the soft rot and the black rot. The two forms cause a very different rot, hence the names of the two dis eases. A fungus is a plant which repro duces by spores which are the same as seeds; but the fungus gets its food by sending slender filaments into an other plant, termed the host. These filaments are similar to a root of the common plant, which gathers food. The soft rot is probably less com mon and of minor importance, for it causes its trouble on bruised pota toes while in storage. Jt gains en trance through a bruised area while black rot does not necessarily need a bruised surface. The black rot has seemed to be more common in the vicinity of the agricultural college the past year than for three years. This disease is of great importance as itis parasitic and causes a rot which may not be no ticed in its early stages. It appears as a dark colored sunken area and gradually increases in size until this area is very large and very much sunken, and by making a cross-section of, the potato through such an area one may easily note the dark, diseased tissue. If the diseased potatoes are used for taking slips from they will in all prob ability be infected. The infection is noticed as a small, black area. There may be several such infections on a slip. If the slips are too badly infect ed the plant may die after being set out; or it may not be vigorous in growth. At least there is a chance of the potatoes being badly diseased when harvested. The fungus causing black rot may live over in the soil for an indefinite time. Such being the case, the best method of controlling the fungus is to select potatoes not diseased Plant the potatoes, from which slips are taken, in soils where no disease has been pre viously, and, last, set your slips out where there has been no diseased po tatoes grown o Should Be Harvested for as Plants Are Fully H Big Demand for S.lk il Sudan grass should be cut as soon as the plants are fully Immediate cutting is recom 0 the Texas experiment stati t- will insure more cuttings A, V Under fair weather condi tbe treated just like prairie; timothy-cut in the 1 Shauled into the barn or s afternoon.
