Even with the natural environment favorable he coaxes his product to grow through artificial means. The 70 acres have been sci entifically drained so that too much dampness will not interfere, and all through the season he nurses his crop. Last season everything was favor able to growing the best crop the 70 acres ever produced. Even Mr. Stam baugh was surprised when his onions began to grow recklessly. When the crop was finally harvested the result was 46,000 bushels. "It's just natural onion land," says Mr. Stambaugh in explaining his onion prodigy. "Onions cannot help grow ing there when you plant them." The "onion" king" smiles in relating how he invades even the Texas mar ket. Down in Texas they irrigate to raise onions. Sometimes they have to spend thousands of dollars to irrigate a few acres. It is this cost of irriga tion that permits the Ohio onion to compete with the Texas onion on the latter's own ground. Up in Hardin county the Scioto river gratuitously does what the Texans spend .:ens of thousands in coaxing the Rio-Grande and artesian wells to do. Mr. Stambaugh talks of his onion exploits only in whispers,^ He will not tell just how much he made on that bumper /crop last season, but some estimate that the profits amount ed to more than $15,000. Spur for Lazy Husbands. Sacramento, Cal. —Lazy husbands will find California a hard place to ply their vocation as a result of the sign ing of a bill by Governor Johnson.

DIRECTS WORK FROM HIS Scarlet Fever Victim, Quarantined in Sanatorium, Superintends Con struction by 'Phone. Portland, Ore.—Quarantined in a Portland sanatorium with an attack of scarlat fever, L. F. Brayton, in charge of the 12-story Wilcox building, being erected at Sixth and Washington streets, installed a telephone by his bedside and continued the work of superintending the skyscraper's con struction by telephone. The first diffi culty Brayton encountered when he asked for a telephone was the unwil lingness of anyone to install it in his room for fear of contagion. Finally, despite his illness, he had the equip ment sent to the sanatorium and made the connections himself. During the period he has been in quarantine a large part of the founda tion of the building has been com pleted, the base plates for the steel set and the delivery of steel on the ground begun. witness.

CONVICT REFUSES A PARDON Texas Man, Serving Long Sentence for Murder, Prefers to Stay In Prison and Make Converts. Galveston, Tex.—Paul Graynor, thir ty-seven years of age, who is serving a forty-year term in the state peni tentiary for murder, refused a pardon, FIND AZTEC RELICS Gold Molds Buried in Mexico Are Unearthed. One of Most Remarkable Discoveriei in Archaeology and Ethnology of Prehistoric Tribes Made Re cently Near Atzcapotzalco. City of Mexico, Mex.—One of the most remarkable discoveries in the archaeology and ethnology of tlie pre historic tribes of Mexico was made re cently when a complete goldsmith's outfit, primitive, yet much used, was dug up from the gravel bed of a small stream near Atzcapotzalco. Found near the site on which were unearthed numbers of finely carved idols, molds from which clay artifects Were made, and a complete factory for pottery, this last discovery leads to the be lief that there was once a flourishing city of the Aztecs or of some other ancient Indian race on the land now occupied by the suburb of Atzcapot zalco. This latest find, which Is now in the possession of Prof. William Niven, in this city, consists of a furnace, re tort and the long clay tube of the blower, the leather portion of which had, of course, long since rotted away. All these article have metamorphosed from clay into stone, so many years had they lain underground. All are In perfect condition, and easily recogniza ble, even yet some of the crude ore being found clinging to the sides of the pan of the furnace. They were buried about fourteen feet beneath the sur face, practically the same depth at which the relics previously referred to were found some days ago. With the remains of the furnace and retort were found a number of molds, evidently f<^r silver and gold. With each mold was a small image, apparently a pattern of the particular ornament which the mold was de signed to reproduce. In every instance, these small patterns, none more than three or four inches in height, con sisted of the image of a man or a man's head, wearing the particular or nament which was to be made. One set of patterns is for a head dress. The largest pattern is for the great double feather which the chiefs of the time were accustomed to wear just over the forehead, while there are patterns for earrings, noserings, hair ornaments and a fillet of beauti ful construction, with which to bind up the hair. Among the hair orna ments are designs of the fleur de lis, the first time such a pattern has been found among any of the Indian tribes of the new world, according to Pro fessor Niven, who is making an ex tensive study of the collection. Among the most interesting patterns discovered is one for a huge J^east plate, evidently of silver This is rectangular in shape, 18 by 12 inches, with a large number of places for the , inset of precious stones This is con- , sidered one of the "nest artiiects found, and éhoWs a high stage o « t in its making. ; Wrist bands, thick and wide, and made for the wrists of powerful men. ; also appear in the molds, the interiors of which show that the resultant gold and silver castings must have had ele- j gant decorations plentifully scattered over their surfaces. It is commonly understood that the gold and silver used by these Indian artisans came from the district of Zacatula in Guer rero, being carried on the backs of traders, from the far mining district, but Professor Niven believes, from the abundance and size of these molds, that the two metals must have been secured in greater quantity nearer to the home of the goldsmith. This opens an interesting field of' search for the ancient gold and silver mines of the valley or the nearby -nountains. ! I "1 did not feel so very sick, despite the doctor's warning," said Brayton t0 "I made up my mind I was going keep in touch with the work, and saw it through." FISH CONVEYORS OF LEPROSY New Orleans Doctor Outlines Expsri' ments Which He Has Made With the Baccili. Chicago.—Fish and oysters were ac cused of being conveyors of leprosy by Dr. M. Couret of New Orleans in his " " " " cili in fish, in which the germs had address before the national conven tion of the American Association of Pathologists and Bacteriologists. It was because of this, he said, that in habitants of Norway and Sweden had suffered so extensively from leprosy, as well as the fish-eating peoples of Italy and Greece. He outlined experi ments he had made with leprosy bac flourished in both cold and temperate waters. declaring he can do more good in prison than out of it, and that he purposes finishing the twenty-five re maining years of his sentence. Sixteen years ago Graynor quarreled with a woman, whom he shot to death. He made a hard fight in court, but on his second trial was sentenced to serve forty years. The first verdict carried the death penalty. At least fifteen men who served in the penitentiary were converted by the young convict and are now leading upright lives. Ha taught stenography to six of them in prison and four hold responsible posi tions, two of them being court stenog. raphers in large cities. Twenty-five other convicts now serv ing in the penitentiary have been con verted and many of these are study ing in the classes Graynor organized, in which he teaches reading, book keeping, arithmetic, stenography and Spanish. Friends succeeded in get ting the governor's consent to pardon Graynor, but he positively refused. He sent word to the governor that he was worth nothing to the world outside of prison, but could do much good for his fellow convicts. Showy Costumes & J 7, t' mX V.

Center, IMPORTANCE OF BATH SPRAY Toilet Essential That May Only Described as Absolutely Indispensable. Be A strong spray that can be attached to the faucet of the bath tub is indis pensable. It is essential in shampoo ing, as It gets out the soap quickly and with little effort. The force of a spray is a splendid tonic after a sham poo, and gets the scalp in a glow that prevents cold.

The word conjureä up an in finite variety of styles of which our mothers and grandmothers knew noth ing, and fair women to today can be doubly grateful for the efforts of mll liners. Garlands of plumes are used on broad, low hats. They are spotted and flecked with color, and some are made of layers of different shades, giving a wonderfully iridescent effect. Q n ve ] v et turbans the use of a sin gle p i urne attached at the front, and extending toward the back In a slant ing line, is quite evident. This line for the plume is used on large hats as well. And speaking of the wide flat shapes leads us to the introduction of ostrich feathers to edge the brim. Two successful Paris milliners have done this with great effect. Parasol and Bag. White cotton marquisette, yellow wool, coarse linen lace and white porcelain beads have been combined to produce a novel parasol with bag to match. The parasol of marquisette is bordered with the lace, fringed with loops of the wool, on each one of which Is strung a White bead, and em broidered with a |few large yellow wool flowers. Maifcuisette forms the upper part of the ljag. about the mid dle comes the banjl of lace, and the bottom is sewn alt over with beads. It has more yellow wool flowers and a long yellow wool cord to carry it by. Spring Wrap. For spring a wrap^of black char meuse is a serviceable addition to a modish wardrobe. It may be fashion ed as simple as a tailored coat or elab orated by broad band trimmings of basket weave silk braid, heavy lace and fancy buttons. The lining is usu allv in a gay tone—sdmetimes of plain satin, again of satin foulard, in one of the latest patterns. One such a coat seen recently was of black charmeuse and lined with emerald green. The fastening was at one side, a large but ton serving as a clasp and the revers were faced with green satin, veiled in black chiffon. The raglan sleeve is the preferred type for coats on this order.

Green satin belt BLACK JEWELS FOR MOURNING Really No Other Kind Is Permissible, If One Would Do the Correct Thing. A woman in mourning often misses it in her accessories. Her gowns and hats may be qyite correct, but she wears jewelry or carries bags and oth er belongings that are not suitable. For the deepest black It is good form to wear nothing but black jew elry. This means a new supply, as none of the old is permissible save one's engagement ring. Some women even dispense with that Black enamel onyx beads and cut onyx dull jet in beads and carbochons are most used. For cheaper pins there is gun metal, which wears badly and soon looks rusty, and the various com positions made to represent enamel. Women who can afford it have dog collars, chains, pins and brooches of onyx to match. The first' cost of this is offset by the lasting qualities. Twisted ropes of tiny jet beads make good looking watch chains, to which is attached a watch of black en amel links on the order of the antique silver ones. The simpler the lines of mourning jewelry the better form it Is. Little more is worn than is necessary, and long bar pins are better liked than fancy brooches, even for the front of a collar. PARISIAN MILLINERY IDEA. y Valuing Violets. Most men are fond of violets, I sup pose. They all say they are, especially when my violets are in season. I have seen a certain intelligent, well edu cated person of my acquaintance, when given carte blanche of my frames, gather a huge crowded bunch, as nearly as possible the shape and size of a cauliflower; bind the fragile stems tightly with twine; swathe them in purple tinfoil; finish the re sult with a mauve cord and tassel, fru gally saved from a florist's nosegay; skewer the whole to her corsage and complacently g» forth, conscious of the fact that "such a bunch of violets would cost five dollars." These were her words and I quote them for what they are worth.—From "The Violet Lady," Good Housekeeping Maga» zine. An Eye Opener. Always have a glass medicine drop per and a bottle of rosewater in the medicine chest and in your traveling bag. Then when you get a foreign body in your eye you will be spared much pain and discomfort if the fol lowing very simple and harmless meth od Is pursued: Put into the medicine dropper six drops of the rosewater, pull down the lower lid, float the liquid on the surface of the injured eye. After the rosewater has been in the eye for a few seconds use the emptv medicine dropper to such out the liquid and the foreign matter wiW come with It. Listing the Household Goods.

I^LDSO s4ND OTHER, Cities ARMY OF 250,000 T0ELS AT RIGHT f I BELIEVE ^ THEY'RE TRYlhC TO .STEAL MY J?FPUTATlOh NEW YORK.—With an army, conser vatively estimated at a quarter of a million of workers who are em ployed partly or wholly at night, New York city Is fast becoming as busy in dustrially and economically between the hours of 7:00 p. m. and 7:00 a. m as are other cities during the hours that from time immemorial have been dedicated to labor. The glitter, the glimmer and the glamor of the "Gay White Way" and its environs must, from their very noise and brilliancy, attract attention to the exclusion of all other consider ations, after the sun goes down and the myriad imitation suns come up. But that quarter million of workers is there—not so accessible, not so eas ily stumbled upon, and far less noisy: In every part of the city one may find these human moles. Some of them have worked at night so long that the sunlight makes them blink, like so many owls. Others do some of their work In the daytime. But with this latter class the real stride is not reached until after dark. Years ago New York began the ac cumulation of its corps of night work ers. Gradually it has added to its numbers. So easy and quietly has been this increase that It has attract ed not the slightest attention, unless it be among the workers themselves. TO TOUR EUROPE ON CAFE TIPS ETIQUETTE ON TIPPING. When dining alone 10 cents. When dining with a woman 25 cents. When entertaining a party, 50 cents or more. When in doubt 10 per cent, of bill. Add 5 per cent, when the music is inspiring. Deduct accordingly when the waiter refuses to smile. Never offer a tip until after service is over. Be liberal, but don't overdo It. CHICAGO.—John Henry William Rehm, who, with %enry von Han nison, another Chicago waiter, will pass the summer in Europe, traveling on the proceeds of tips paid him, gave the foregoing precepts, and plans to follow them in giving his own money away. Rehm will take his wife and two daughters, Adeline and Elinor, on the trip. They will sail on the Lusitania, in the best quarters available, and fer three months will "do" Europe In style. "A waiter should receive $50 a week in tips," said Rehm in telling of his experience as a Chicago waiter. "Sometimes, when politics are on, a SIVEN RIGHT TO SPANK HIS WIFE f.?

LOUIS.—On Fourth of July, at harvest home dinners, when a new railroad is completed, or a canal is dug, or a new mayor inaugurated, florid-faced men get up and talk elo quently of the nation's great progress. "We are. living in an age of marvel ous deeds," they exclaim, and we truly are, for in St. Louis a jury found that a man had the right to spank his wife. Rebecca Yowell, the mother of six children, sued Jacob Yowell for a di vorce, charging that he spanked her. He confessed to the crime, but claimed as a mitigating circumstance that she talked from ten one night till two the next morning, and he couldn't sleep. Mr. Yowell did not tell the court what she talked about and the court WILL ENFORCE DRASTIC GAMING LAW MONTCLAIR, N. J—The open sea son for bridge whist and poker ended here when a committee of prominent clergymen called upon Re corder Henry L. Yost and requested that the provisions of the air-tight state gambling law of 1898 be put in force at once. Copies of the law will be posted in prominent places throughout the town and the local papers will publish the full text of the gambling act, with a warning to all whom it may concern to put away cards, dice and other gaming implements or take the con sequences. Lawyers say the New Jersey gam bling law is one of the most sweep ing ever put on a statute book. Its three sections include every form of dallying with chance. Poker players, euchre players or shakers of dice for drinks may be sent to prison. "What's this I hear about putting an end to bridge?" a lawyer asked the police chief. "My wife has ar ranged for a bridge whist party to night, but I'll call it off if there's any danger of a raid." The chief's proxy hurriedly con sulted a copy of the gambling law and then advised that the bridge party be cailed off. Ask the average person what he knows about the people who work while lie plays and sleeps. He will answer, first of all, "the milkman." Then he will grope around vaguely, and after a while it will occur to him that the street railway employees— on surface lines, elevated roads and in the subways—take him to and from the theater. It is hard to complete an accurate list of all those occupations which are carried on at night. But here is a list, which gives an idea of the enormous number of people who earn their bread in a manner that our staid fore fathers would have considered "out lardish." Milkmen, postoffice employees, po licemen, firemen, railway employees, employees on the surface, elevated and subway lines, night watchmen, waiters and cashiers in the all-night "hash houses;" then comes that other class of waiters and attendants in the fashionable restaurants, who only begin to bustle about at night; news paper men, printers, telegraph opera tors, bar tenders, hotel clerks, bell boys and the "raft" of other hotel em ployees; hackmen, chauffeurs, all night dentists, physicians, surgeons, barbers, cigar store clerks, drug store employees, telephone girls, newsboys, news dealers, actors and actresses, crews of the ferry boats, certain sorts of structural workers, tunnel work ers, musicians, nurses; there is a small army of men and women who enter the big department stores after they have closed for the night, and work the night long cleaning and fix ing them up ship-shape for the next day's trade.

Had there been a woman judge and Jury at the trial Mrs. Yow ell's reasons for talking four hours at a stretch would have been made known. But this is sure: Those four hours were not devoted to singing Mr. Yowell's praise. Time flies rapidly when one is hear ing compliments; in no other circum stance does time fly so fast, and had Mrs. Yowell been praising her hus band there would have been no spank ing. She talked four hours. That wasn't long if she had chosen the right sub ject. But she talked of the six chil dren, the house, the hard work, the growing needs <?f a growing family, and in that particular she did wrong. P'or the more she talked, the an grier he grew. Had she spent those four hours in a lullaby of his praise he would have dropped off to a sweet sleep and handed her his pocketbook next morning. Every man who complains that his wife talks too much makes the admis sion that her soliloquy isn't a song of praise. jTuJrry Put those CARDS AWAY, THE POLICE ARE COMING »-7-I I » Bridge has taken a strong hold on Montclair, with high play as a result. A young Montclair woman, prominent socially, was Invited recently to an afternoon tea. Bridge was proposed, almost as a matter of course. No money was staked, courfters being used. The girl plunged. When play was ended the girl was informed calm ly by her hostess, "I find by the count ers that you owe me $40." "Why! I didnt know we were playing for money,' gasped the amazed and then deeply mortified girl. But the hostess persisted in her claim, and the girl handed over a brooch as security.

The brooch was sent back within an hour, without bill or comment.
