rfftiwJr ww WMftti TW THE DEMOCRATIC BARKER n urn ai yxmrnmmmmmmiamm TUESDAY, APRIL 7, 1014" y e l! RV li: CHARACTER IN PLANTS; CONSIDER THIS IN PLANTING Next to color, perhaps tho most Im ""variant point to bo considered in gar den planning with respect to the plants themselves Is the habit of tho individual plant Biibject. A great deal -of tho success of a garden depends up "on placliiB plants where thoy will "Jblend properly with each otlier. Hy "habit is meant not merely shape or Ize or general nppearancc. Much 40 1ends upon tho special characters vblch distinguish one variety or spec--ios of plant from another. The most conspicuous wajj in which these char--actors are exhibited are In the method of branching, the form and toxturo of the foliage, tho shape of the flower CheaU, tho denseness or sparsenebs of Xhc flowers, the color of tho foliage, the time of flowering with respect to leal production, the character and 'color of the hark (which may be con - plcuou8 or Inconspicuous during late ' -autumn, winter and early spring), tho Appearance or non-appparanco of col ored fruits which ripen and fall during summer or autumn or remain attached to tho plants during tho winter. Trees and shrubs which produce their flowers hoforo tho leaves for In stance, Judas tree, splco bush, Japan " H.SO quince, golden boll, daphne, otc. are most valuable for early spring use because of their brilliant colors; but "tlioy need tho support of evergreona or of other plants which produce foliage very early in tho spring so as to mako nn effective background for tho flowers to contrast with. A similar romaik ap plies to thoso trees and shrubs which -havo conspicuous bark or fruits which will attract tho oyo during tho leaf lees months; for Instance, white birch, .sycamoro or butlonwood, tho red bark 1 dogwoods, tho yellow barked wll Jown, barberries and tho varieties of dogwood that boar scarlet fruits. .AH theso shoud havo backgrounds of ever creons or of somo other dark object o tho colors will show oft to advan tage. K la highly desirable that gat don -lil&nts, should bo allowed freedom of growth to develop their Individual xharacter. No plants should bo grown .merely to produce blossoms; at least 4so far as the general garden pictuio is concerned. Hy allowing freedom of growth is not meant that no piuntng should bo done, but pruning to force the plant into artificial shapes should 1)0 avoided as will tend (o tho welfare of the plant Itself without forcing ar tificiality. That border In which the plants aio allowed to develop most naturally Is the one which will glvo tho gicatest iplcasure to the oye and to tho esthet ic taste. In this tho rulo should hu to put tho taller, inoro lobust, and "log Ky" plants In Iho rear, bo as to on- -franco tho picturesiiuo churacterH of tho planting. Ilowevor, this rulo should not bo followed too rigidly bo cause it may tend lo stiffness. It should ho broken heio and tliore, elth r by reversal or by extending tho taller plants toward Iho foreground Occanloniil bald clumps of llowurs brought well to tho front, especially if at Irregular Intervals, will give va riety and character to tho border. Next to allowing plants to grow tut nurally, that Is, without shearing or mi otic clipping, Is the point of allowing tmch specimen to huo amiile room in "which to develoi) without the oncitmr-h-aucnt of its neighbois. This means that tho gardener must Know tliu habit of cnch species and uirloty and plan 10 Allow onough space aiouud each hiocl tjen no that development will be par anal and therefore bountiful. Tall lilauts may bo separated by thoso 'which grow shorter. Thus each will Biavo ample space In which to develop. A special application of this rulo may bo seou la such combinations as asparagus placed In front of holly hocks. Tho unsightly stem or the liollyhocks will bo concealed by tho ucy lingerie of the ahparagus. When alio kollycorks have reached and pus--m1 their prime, thoy mny be lomnvcd without detracting In any way from then beauty of tho asparagus. Many lml!ur combinations can bo made With other plants. Therefore, It may Sfea taken a8 a general rulo that plants wblch throw up long, narrow spikes ! flower should be necompnnled by others which have a tufted habit. llant which havo glaucous, silvery 'Hit lrony follngo should bo placed V&cro thoy will reenforco othor plants xhoao llowers best contrast with such peculiar characters of folhtgo. I'lnnts tsuch as acanthus, paulownla and ens "tor oil bean, which have bold follago, xeed for their support plants which iJiavo more or leas laey follago; for In yrtanco, nllanthus, grevlllca and ulmll.ir .jiliwate-leiivcil subjects, Tho crucial teHt or planting Is tho rnpnassloa of a natural, Informal of- 'iect la which every Individual plant Snot merely appears to bo but actually 'is at home .in Its surroundings and In 'thus In condition to produce Its high "ipfit possible contribution to the pleas- ing effect of tho general picture, if somo vigorous plant breaks bounds and extends be.vong the edges of tho bor der for Instance, a trailer or n vino, or a drooping shrub no one should clip this back unless It Is oxtondlng al together too far, Such seeming acci dents of growth should bo counted so as to eliminate nil possibllo stiffness and informality. For this reason they should bo deliberately planned for. It is good plan to arrango the plants ol tho back row so tholr sky line from end to end of tho border will mako n distinct silhouette against either somo background farther away or with tho hky. Caie must ho taken to arrango flow ering plants so that those which blos 10m about tho same tlmo may harrnon ize or at least not contrast too vio lently. Still more important Is sue cession of bloom. Such shrubs as gol ('on bell, daphne, plco bush nnd judas teo wilt provide brilliant colors at heights of two to ten feet above tho ground. Those may bo supplemented by hardy bulbs, which, however, must bo planted, the provlous autumn. Among theso grnpo hyacinth, crocus, hyacinth and tulip aro leaders. Monotony Is Banished By These Suggestions At a recent fashionable Gathering evening gowtiB were worn which were designed to ropreaont almost ovory im portant decado from tho days of Mario Antoinette. Tho dancers, gliding and djplug to tho sway of tho music, mado an unusually effectivo picture. There is no longor the repetition of a fashion In different colors. A most nttrnctivo gown wns worn by a young French woman who is visiting Amoilcan friends this spring. Tho vhlto brocaded silk skirt had a deep hilt In tho front, rounded out at tho bottom. When the wearer danced, a ery beautiful lace and net petticoat was revealed. She wore a short crepe petticoat under tho laca ono. The sklit of tho gown was rather hhoit all around, and oven somowhat shorter In tho front. This tondoncy toward uueveuness is tho last word In fashions just now, A four-Inch band ot pourjs was placed directly on tho tullo draped a round the corsago, Tho tulle fell upon tho skirt in pannier ef fect, and was cuught over tho hips bv another ono of theso pearl bands, rais ed allghlly In tho front. Ovor each hip ilici not was allowed to puff somewhat It fell from under tho band in bouffant Inshlon. A distinctly oriental note was shuck by u loose front panel of 1 earls, toi urinating with u rich eight Inch penil filugo. During tho past season coutuilors hf.vo been facing ono groat difficulty 'iho lucniigrulo between long dance stops and .Ill-Inch circumference skirts resulted In many frayed hems. It waa nothing unusual lor a dollc-ato ball gown, which had cost weuks of plan ning and work, to bo sent buck aftor ono night's wear n wreck, Tho skirt was likely to bo torn In f.ont, at the sides or In tho hack KouietlmeH In sovernl places. Modistes planned to ovudo this riltllculty. How could a sklit ho made wide enough io liai mlt tho now dance stops and dips and narrow enough to conform with fashlou's ileciut'8? Silk inserts woro tilod. Thoy provod a little patchy lu uppearanco, and thou thoy woro con stantly becoming lipped or torn. Jlut tho latest evening gowns havo cut tho Clordlnn knot, according to n New York Tiibuno writer. Tho cou turiers solved tho problem simply by treating tho skirt as if it woro mere ly a draping. Two side slits going up to tho hips permit any movement, and display artistic underskirts. Tho pet ticoat plays a most Important part In tho garniture of tho gown. Tho silts in the side aro only ono of the means employed to glvo tho nocossary free dom to tho llmbB. Silts climbing two thirds of tho way up In tho back nnd front, w skirts looped up by a back puff, so that nothing hampers tho foot but a flowing not petticoat, aro to bo neon at every evoulng affair. lu tho way of novoltles, uomo yory etfoctlvo mnllno slinwls woro soon, in brilliant plnkB, blues and croons.

FAVORITISM CHARGED BY SOME Announcement of Reserve Districts and Cities the Signal For the In auguration of a Struggle On the Part of Disappointed Communities to Overturn the Committee's De cision and Bring About Changes. Washington, April 4. There are In dications hero that the announcement ot the reserve districts and cities by the reserve bank organization com mittee has given the signal for a de termined struggle on the part of sev eral disappointed cities to overturn the committee's decision and bring about a rcdjfstrlctlng of tho country, or at least a change in tho reserve citlf-fc mimed. Under tho law, the decision ot the organization committee Is not subject to review except by the federal re servo board. This board probably will not bo named by President Wilson for several weeks, but In tho meantime it is believed that those disappointed with tho committee's announcement will bend every effort toward paving the way for changes. It was pointed out that both Secre tary of the Treasury McAdoo and Comptroller of tho Currency Williams of the organization commlttoc are ex officio members of the reserve board, and hardly could bo counted upon to reverse thoznsdlves. Tho president hns given no intimation as to who the other five members will be. The organization committee's plan was criticised In congress, and there wore reports of keen dlsapoplntment from several cities which weroln the race for reserve banks and which failed to secure thern. Three members of the senate banking nnd cunency committee, two Republicans nnd a Democrat, found fault with the plan Senator Weeks of Mnsnchusntts, who opposed the lav vigorously for man months but who finally voted for It, pointed out that one bank whs located in Georgia, tho home state of Air. Mc Adoo; one in Virginia, the homo state of Mr. Williams, and two in Missouri, the home state ot Secretary Houston, tho third member of tho committee. He questioned tho propriety of thetjo selections and mado other criticisms ot tho committee's action. Senator Burton disapproved the In clusion of Pittsburg in tho district of which Clovoland Is tho reserve center nnd dp-dared that it would ho Impos sible to mako trade turn westward from Pittsburg Jo that city. Senator Hitchcock pointed to the fact that Omaha had been included in the Kansas City district instead ot the Chicago district, and said trade did not flow that way. Defenders of tho committee said that there is no Justification for the charge that it was Influenced by any consideration othor than the trend ot trade and the banking advantages of cities chosen.

DELVE INTO THE PAST AND FIND MUCH CULTURE i Archeologically considered Guate mala and '.Mexico occupy Identical ground, and explorations conducted with moroor ,less frequency have brought .to light ancient rernalnB which point to the similarity in con struction that was practiced among the people of Yucatan and those of northern Guatemala. Probably no other field In America, not barring ,'Peru, with Its Inca ilory, furnishes greater Incentive for archeological research than Guate mala. It is only within recent years that historians and explorers have Joined hands in tracing, systemati cally, the links between tho Mayan past and the ytresent dwellers of Centra America. The discoveries placed to the credit oi investigators nave Deen many nnu fruitful. That the culture which ex Jbted many years before Columbus retched America was of the highest order, appears to be reflected In the ruins ofrbuHdings that wero con structed with great skill, and woro of beautiful design. Central American architecture of the past is throughout characterized by a flno feeling for constructive lines end this seems to be the case in tho matter of entlro cities, groops ot buildings, single structures or monu ments. 'The pyramids frequently fur nish many historic data, and In con nection with these pyramids are found various subsidiary structures, such as altars, pillars and sacrificial stones, finely carved with figures that in most instances lend themselves to deciphering'. There existed In those early days a sort of ball game, like that which is still ployed by Mexicans. These games Washington, 1). C, April 1 This is the season of the year when thq farmer should pay particular attention to seed potatoes, cautions tho depart ment of agriculture, and tho use of high grade seed would increase the re turns from the potato crop of the country by many millions of dollars, A conservative cstimnto of tho in crease that might be expected from the use of high grade seed Is certainly not lob than 10 per cont. Such an increase baaed on tho average pro duction of the past 5 years would amount to oer 31,000,00 bushels, having nn approximate value ot ?21, 000,000, Of the many onuses which operate to produce a low average po tato yield in this country, pure seed Is an Important one. The American potato gnlwor pays too littlo atten tion to hi peed potatoes, v The European growors, especially thoso of (ireat Britain nnd Germany, pay very strict attention to tho qaul ity and quantity of seod thoy use. This hns led to the differentiation ot the potato industry into seod and crop specialists, The seed specialist makes a business of producing high-quality seed, whllo tho crop specialist pro duces a high grade table potato. No such differentiation, at least to tho same, extent, occurs in this country. While It is true that in cortaln sec tions there Is well dovoloped seed po tato growing Industry, but compara-i tlvely few Rrowers in theso sections aro paying suilleient-attention to tho domination of diseased nnd unpro ductive strains, or to kooping the variety grown free from mixture with othor varieties. Ily far tho simplest and most prom ising means of developing high grado seed potaoes Is that of tho tuber unit and hlll-solcction methods. Tho former consists in selecting from the seed bin before planting: time a con sldeablo number of tho most per fectly shaped tubers of from 0 to 8 ouncoa in 'weight. ' When planted these tubers are quartered, as drop ped, into 4 as nearly equal parts as possible. This la done by splitting tho bud-eye cluster )n each direction from seed to ttom end ot the tuber. Tho 4 pieces cf each tuber aro drop lied consecutively in Uto row at a dis tance ot from 10 to 12 fnthoa apart in the furrow. Ail tubors showing dis coloration of tho flesh or other, evi dence of disease should bo rejoctod. By allowing an additional space between each bet of fours, tho four plants from each tufier are definitely Isolated from adjoining ones, nnd tho f grower can readily ob'sarvq uny var- iatlon in vigor and uniformity bo-' twoen the units planted. This method ' THE SEED POTATOE AND HOW PRODUCED took placo in courts, always running north nnd south. Tho courts woro parts of tho pyramidal structures nnd evidently wore tin essential feature of tho period. Investigations up to the present tlmo Would indicate that the most im portant tulns ot Guatemala are to be found In the district on tho Usumaclta river. Hero tho fnost noteworthy sites are Pledra Negrns nnd Mencha Tin nmlt or Yaxchllan, as it Is often called. There are many temples here covered with sculptured reliefs and hieroglyphic Inscriptions. In the Peten district Tlkah Is famous for Its mag nificent sculptutes representing Ku kulknn. It is, In fact, not necessary to go further from Guatemala City; than the extensive ruins of Guatemala-Mixco before the searchor finds much that is of absorbing Interest. Tho scries of three pyramids at Chncula and Qucu-Santo, between the Chiapas and the- Locantum livers, are covered with characters which indicate that Mayan culturo lind penetrated into what was perhaps, originally the homo of Lacantum civilization. There is no denying that the an cient ruins of Copan, on the other side of Guntetnaln, m Honduras, is one of the most remarkable antiqui ties In existence. But this sldo the Honduras border lios Qulrlga, the re maino of which In elude splendid tem ples nnd gigantic stone htclte of ex qulBlte' workmanship. It 1b apparent that tho plans now under wajK for n further delving into Guatemala! historic past will bring to the surface much which tho present tlmo 1b only guessed at as belonging to the ramarkable Mayan period. also enables him to detect an mix tures that may occur In the variety. At digging timo the product of each unit is separately harvested, and a further selection mado from tho rnnrked units of all those which most nearly approach tho size, shape and smoothness desired. Tho selected tubers should bo numbered with both Held nnd unit numbers, and separate ly placed In small encks. Prom each of tho units retained, 10 of the best tubers should bo solected for the next bonson's plnntlng. It Is desltnblo lo maintain the study ot each selection on tho tuber-unit basis tho following season becauso it permits a moro ac curate comparison of tho behavior of each. The hill-selection method consists in marking tho mobt promising plants during tho growing season. At har vesting time savo only those which glvo greater promisne. Keep tho progeny of oach hill separate, and tako tho Hamo data as outlined for tho tuber unit. Plant on tho tuber basis tho following season. For sake of uulformlty, a definite number of tubors 5 or moro should bo plant ed from each hill selection. Prom this point on Uto methods given In tho tuber-unit work should bo follow ed, Tho only requirements for the suc cessful practice of tho two methods of sebd selections are a reasonable degree of painstaking effort on the part of the grower, somo 12-lnch gar den labols, a small pair of balancos, n oulllclent number of suitable small sacks and a safe place In which to 8toro tho selected tubers until re quired b ytho next season's planting. In addition to this, tho grower should havo a brooding plat in which each Boason'8 selections can be developed up to the point ot field-planting stock. Tho selection of breeding plat need not nocosaarlly bo divorced from tho general field plat. In most casos it can be more conveniently handled if it Is a part of tho regular field. All to plant tho solected tubers. Theso should bo preferably on one Bide of tho field so thnt they can bo moro readily obsorved. The planting fur rowo may bo open, and a fertilizer distributed with the potato planter by removing tho disks and sotting tho plow u trifle deeper.
