Oi With The Blue Sox. In the two rounds with Columbus the locals gave the public another exhibi tion of the terse and rushing playing that they are rapidly becoming famed for. Both battles were of the variety named and contained enough interest ing procedure to bar fanatics from swearing at the doorkeeper. During the first bout the reins were given up to Piguo, and, birring a healthy bunch of bingles picked from his bendors that didn't count for much in the long run, the lad's work went down on the note worthy card. Three runs were all that the clan had time to dig out from the curlers of the slab-gun with the visitors, and this was just two more than Pace's Sheer Pluggers needed to place the other side against the wall. Eliott is the latest addition, and the chap figures out to be the best ever considering both his playing and hitting points. His lay out is third, whereon he made a straight 'succession of star-acts to fit in Friday's scran. Fate handed out a hard verdict to the locals in the second melee of this series when the visiting crew swooped down upon them m a rallied condition and carried off the result-act by a scratch. The concluding figures were 1 and 2 with the single parallel to the credit of the Blue Sox the two safe ones made by the other faction being strictly hon est but resulting from wild and unreason able performances. The fight lasted for twelve innings, and pramised a complete shut-out for the clan when a cold wav of hard luck struck them and upset everything in sight. Allan pitched flawless game and had the visitors his mercy from the start. Here is the way the runs fell : U. C. B.S...0 00001000006 Columbus,. .0 0010000000 The slight but counting series of er rors realized in the melee under fire made a flat ' failure when it came to crowing out features. Hawes took the whole pile in then, finishing up the round, and the kid was laying-out in new territory to boot. The position was center where Webe's long-winded catches made disloyal spectators pal with malice. There is one thing about this chap that fans can't get around and that's his mode of play. He never varies in carrying out the performance, and is always capable and competent when it comes to the needed act. He has the game just where you want it, You can count on that.

For the benefit of the farmers of Obion County, who contemplate setting and growing black locust, known also as yellow locust, or often simply locust (robinia pseudacacia), wo publish circu lar No. 64 revised and issued February 15, 1919, by United States Department of Agriculture. FORM AND SIZE. The black locust, known also as yel low locust, is a forest tree which usually attains a height of from 40 to 60 feet with a diameter of from 1 to lj feet, Under the most favorable conditions it may reach a height of 80 feet and a di ameter of 3 feet. In the forest the tree has a clear, straight stem and a small crown. In the open or when grown in plantations, the stem tends to divide early and a more spreading and longer crown is formed. Individual trees, especially when grown in the open, are likely to be crooked or twisted. RANGE. The natural range of black locust, or sometimes called yellow locust, is be lieved to have been restricted to the Appalachian Mountains, from Pennsyl- ania to Georgia, and to certain portions of Arkansas and Eastern Indian Terri tory. The tree reaches its best develop ment on the western slopes of the Appalachians in West Virginia. The introduced range is much larger. It includes the entire region between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mississippi River, from Southern Canada to Florida and extends west of the Mississippi River, south of the thirty-eighth parallel as far as the Rocky Mountains. Black locust has also been grown successfully in the valleys of Utah, Idaho, Eastern Oregon and Washington. When planted on irrigated land the black lo cust plantations in the vicinity of Salt Lake City, Utah and Walla Walla, Washington, are among the best in the United States, and recent investigations indicate that it can be grown with suc sess in portions of California. Its actual range for economic planting, however, greatly restricted by the danger of insect injuries. Black locust grows best on a deep, well-drained, fertile loam, but will grow on almost any soil except wet, heavy one. It attains an excel lent development on limestone forma tions. The tree is very intolerant and requires an abundance of light during its entire life. When overshadowed it declines quickly In its native home black locust is found along streams, on the borders of the forest, or singly or in groups on the steep slopes. On slopes its principal associates are black, red and chestnut oaks, chestnut, pignut hickory and maple. Along streams it grows with ash maple, black walnut and other trees. On forest land that has been burned over it often grows in free stands. Black locust is a very rapid grower. In good situations it may make an average height growth of one-quarter to one-half and three-quarter inch. This rate is sometimes maintained for 25 or 30 years. But more frequently the rate I of growth lessens between the ages of 15 to 20 years. After 50 years growth it almost entirely ceases. ECONOMIC I'SES. The timber of the locust is exten sively used for fence posts, ties, ribs of vessels, treenails, insulator pins and vehicle stock. Its great durability in contact with the soil makes it very val uable for use in the ground, aud its toughness and elasticity give it value where great strength is required. The tree is also valuable for fuel, though the most common use of locust is for fence posts, telegraph and telephone posts, for which purpose it is wing very extensively grown. Because of the large proportion of heartwood, the young wood is almost as durable in the soil as the old locust posts under aver age conditions. It will last from twenty to thirty-five years. PLANTING LOCUST. The use of one-year-old seedlings is recommended in establishing planta tions of black locust. Since the locust has a wide-spreading root system, it re quires plenty of room for the proper development of the tree. A spacing of four feet apart each way in the perma nent site is too close unless very early thinnings can be made. The trees should be set at least six feet apa$each way. In the Middle West they should be spaced five feet apart in rows each way. In the Middle West, careful prepara tion of the soil and cultivation for a few years after planting are essential for successful growing of the locust, to se cure a stem that will make straight posts. Poorly formed or double-head ed trees may be pruned or cut back to the ground two or three years after planting. The plantation should be kept abso lutely free from the presence of live stock a few years, at least, and care fully guarded to prevent fire from run ning over the ground. Approved.
