Hon. L. E. Carne, Mayor, Dyers burg, Tenn. My dear Sir: I have your letter of January 2(i. A bill has been passed by me, providing for si survey of the river from Dyerslmrg to Its mouth, with a view of de termining whether there should be a restoration of Government work thereon. I am enclosing a copy of same. This is the course that has to be followed in such cases, as I explained in my former letter. I think I shall be able to secure the inclusion of this provision in the Rivers and Harbors Hill without dif ficulty, but,' of course, we can never know positively about these things until they have been accomplished. Will keep you advised as to the progress and results. You will understand that the word "survey," as used herein Is not to be taken in its purely technical sense REAPING BENEFIT From the Exteriesce ok Usion City People.

MILES DENOUNCES CONTINENTAL ARMY Retired Lieutenant-General Before House Committee. Washington, Feb. 8. Before the House Committee on Military Affairs Lieut. -Gen. Miles, retired, denounced the continental army. "It would be a very dangerous step toward centralization that would put a tremendous power in some future President," he said. "It is un-American. Why to Germanize the American people? You cannot Germanize Amer ican citizens." General Miles praised the national guard, declared compulsory military service unnecessary, favored three-year enlistments, recommended a regular standing army of 140,000 to 150,000 men, submitted an army reorganization plan of his own, contemplating recruit ing a force of 1,200,000 men by ex- BUSINESS MEN'S CLUB BANQUET MARCH NINTH Committees Appointed to Arrange for the Occasion.

The first sign of an approaching outbreak is the appear- mm Em 3X?.-Xl34tXt3 Kin QSffiufc'tXD Strawberries are practically in a class of their own. This particular fruit is becoming more and more popular, thus finding the public ready for it. Strawberries are be coming more profitable each year, people demanding more berries of the better quality. The first consideration in growing strawberries is whether or not you have the right variety of soil. Ground that will grow good plants will not always grow perfect crops of berries. If a person is growing strawberries for commercial pur poses he. wants them of course as early as possible. Land sloping to the southeast with just enough slope to drain well will be found best. The kind of soil should be loose and loamy, although red grav elly land produces the earliest of berries. Usually it is a hard mat ter to keep berries alive during hot summer weather. This is a big item in selecting your strawberry land. In reference to the preparation of the land, it should be as free from stalks or other matter as possible, as in early cultivation the plants are easily uprooted. The land should be flat-broken in early fall if possible, allowing a freeze on it, then harrow well with a section harrow. The rows should then be marked off the proper distance, about four feet or four feet and six inches, then list or bed on this with ordinary turning plow. At the time of setting bed should be dragged off to a level. Next thing to be considered is the variety of berries you should use Jf for home use or for market gard erting the Excelsior and Lady Thompson are among the best. The Excelsior being about the earliest of all berries is thus good for both garden and commercial purposes The variety used for commercia purposes shoud ae considered from several standpoints, as to yielding qualities, also as to shipping or car rying: qualities. Then, too, some plants are more vigorous and drouth resisting, which is a good thing to remember in selecting your variety The Klondyke seems to be the most popularly planted of commercial varieties. TIME AND MANNER OF PLANT ING. The time of year for planting varies according to climate and use, commercial or garden. As a usual thing, in the early spring as early as February 15 is all right to set. However, if planted in the fall. about October, the plants will bear a small amount the next spring. Then a good advantage in fall plant ing is that it gives the plants more time to grow and get better pre pared for the usual summer drouth. The plants should be set out about 30 inches apart In the drill, the fur row being very shallow, so that the plants will not be covered too deep. It is a usual thing to plant as near a level as possible, as this leaves them in better shape to cultivate. Always see that the crown or bud Is above the ground, as this is where the growth starts. The width of the row wanted should be well look ed after. If the runners are too thick along the edge of the row they should be cut off with a rolling coulter. The row should be kept about 16 inches across, as a row too wide is mean to pick clean, also a row too wide usually has plants that won't or don't bear. Naturally, though, the thin plants bear the largest and most berries to the plant. The cultivation Is very-important, so a person should always remem ber the expense account. They need very often attention both with plow and the hoe, the cultivation begin iag in the early spring caring for them as any ordinary plant. It is very necessary that the plants should be kept as near level as pos sible thruout the summer. The row will retain a shape or will be high enough to drain well during bearing season. Berries require more atten tion during the hot summer months than any other time. Usually the conservation of moisture during the dry months is a very important item in growing strawberries. Frequent use of the drag harrow with a board across it serves to hold the moisture. This harrow pulverizing the soil well leaves a dust mulch, also cultivating the berries. CULTIVATION OF BERRIES. The cultivation after gathering varies according to wishes or ideas of different people. The cheapest and quickest way is the best way. Plants after gathering season should be left much closer in' the drill than when set out, usually about 18 inches apart. The old row should be cut down with plow so that the berries can be chopped to a stand like cotton, leaving one in a place. This seems quite a task, though you have fresh plants to bear from the next year. If possible, the old row being wide enough, the center of the new row should be as far from the old one as possible to get a good stand. This gives practically new ground for the new plants. Culti vating berries should then continue same as first year. In this manner strawberries can be kept on the same land for five or six years with good results.

At all times should a person study the amount of profit in berry grow- ng or any other kind of farming. Fertilizing varies of course accord- ng to the nature of the ground. The most important part in fertil- zing is to get a yield, of course the size of the berry is to be considered. The plant has to be stimulated in such a manner as to be able to pro duce the- largest quantity of quality berries. Naturally a small plant cannot bear a large amount of ber ries. A large plant does not always produce just what is desired, so fer tilizing is very important. Straw berries need or use large amounts of both nitrogen and phosphate. If the plants are vigorous . then use more of the phosphate. Usually or dinary thrifty plants need from 600 to 1,000 pounds of fertilizer to the acre; three parts of phosphate to two parts of cottonseed meal is the best way to apply. If the plant growth is not sufficient in the late summer a small amount of cottonseed meal applied helps to get t he desired growth. The time for fertilizing va ries according to climate. December is about the time to fertilize for production of berries. There are various ways of fertilizing; com mercial fertilizer scattered on the top of the row gives very satisfac tory results, though too much phos phate tends to burn the tops of the plants if not brushed off. If the fertilizer is placed on each side of the row is should be thoroughly mixed. The use of barnyard manure on strawberries is very effective, as well as on any other growing plants. It produces earlier fruit with larger and better quality berries. The ob jection to barnyard fertilizer is that the vegetation is very injurious to the plants and berries. A small amount, though, to the acre will be found very beneficial along with the commercial fertilizer. Mulching strawberries is consid ered by some as being very neces sary, though by others as practically of no value. In the South the only use of mulch is to keep the berries clean and dry during rainy periods If the berries are not mulched you have sandy and wet fruit for sale without any market, though you are not out the expense of mulching However, it is Dest to mulch and keep your stock of berries as good as possible, thereby preserving your de mand as well as possible. The best kind of mulch is that which lays closest to the ground or vines, such as pine needles.

In mulching you should be very care ful not to get too much up on the center of the row, as the vines will not grow thru it. The mulch should be well shaken along the edge of the row.
