By SalTridge Hennegan. (Copyright, 1919, By The Interna tional News Bureau. Inc.) The British authorities are to be congratulated on the . rapidity with which they are clearing out the scuta of the German and other nations who found refuge in Great Britain in pre war flays. No city In the world has ever had to tolerate what London sub mitted to before 1914, and the pass ing of the Aliens' Bill will make It impossible for expelled foreigners ever to aet foot on English soil again. Amonj the latest of the deportees fs a German waiter who played many parts in his time, his most successful role being that of "Baron von Brocker," a cousin of the ex-Kalser. His real name, was Strett, and Into his three-and-forty years crowded more adventure and episode than many men do in a whole lifetime. Well Bpoken, with nice manners and rather handsome features, he had a passion for women, and in the space of a few years he claimed no fewer than a hundred wives and sweethearts all over the country. Whether he ever went through the actual form of marriage with half this number of his victims lawfully, I cannot say, but it is pretty certain that many of his victims lived with him at some time or other. He spent money to make money, for robbery was the real motive which Inspired his amorous enterprises. In the West End he held jobs at several restaurants, and in this way he became acquainted with those on whom he had designs. Unsuspecting visitors to London feVl Into his hands, and he had no difficulty in establish ing friendship. Poured Love Into Victim's Ears. Like Landru, the French Blue beard, he spoke loftily of his family's wealth, and of estates to whisti he was heir In California and other dis tant lands. If asked why it was that 'he followed the mental occupation he replied that this was the easiest way of acquiring the language of any country. His methods Of fleecing the unpre pared of their savings and valuables was not original. He simply poured love into their ears and captured the hearts of his victims. Then he pitch ed the usual tale of the family cheque which never arrived, and by a variety of plausible excuses and' apologies solicited aid from his girl friends. Domestic servants fell an easy prey to his stories and fictions, and from time to time he amassed considera ble sums, which he took care to bank. Jewelry, too, found its way Into his safe, and he had a tidy bit put away when he was thrown Into prison. " Like all adventures, Strett believed In fashionable dress, and those who met him outside his working hours could never believe that he was one and the same individual. He usually wore a morning coat, silk hat, patent boots and spats, while a dazzling imi tation pearl pin was conspicuously displayed on bis tie. Never Wrote a Letter. How he managed to masquerade as a modest German waiter one week and the next as Baron Brocker, a cousin of the ex-Kaiser, is his own secret, for through all his escapades he managed to stear clear of the po lice. . It was in his own country, that he first started on his career of decep Iton, and after putting paid to the accounts of numerous women In Ber lin, Frankfort, and other German towns he tried his luck In Paris. Strett was a great traveler, and a cautious one at that. His courtships were invariably con ducted on fairly legitimate lines. His promises, however, were always oral and, unlike the majority of suitors, he never wrote a letter. Thus he depriv ed his dupes of an Important clue for identification purposes and when he disappeared nobody bad the slightest! idea as to his whereabouts. When he came to London he work ed first of all in Soho and afterwards in the Strand. A striking feature of his methods was that N he never had any use for women without money no matter how prepossessing their ap pearance. To gain confidence he fre quently entrusted his victim with sums of money which he asked them to mind for him till he wanted It. Then when the moment came to carry out his plana he would borry a hun dred or two and in this way regain his own cash with substantial interest. There Is a story told of how ha decamped with the life savings of one lady to whom he told a pitiable tale of unfortunate speculation. He said he had gambled heavily onvthe Stock exchange, but his expectations were disappointed, and declared he lost every penny. Forged documents were produced to support his story, and the woman in the goodwees of her heart advanced him 500 pounds to recover his fortunes. Then Strett dis appeared. After living some time in London he appears to have made his way to Lancasshire ant then Scotland, not in the guise of a German aristocrat, but as a Swiss waiter. Everybody who met him was Impressed by his genial disposition, behind which he cloaked his native caprice and cunning. No body ever doubted his sincerity, and his campaign was so cleverly en gineered that when he vanished after his usual custom, having enriched his pockets, it was generally thought that he had gone on some business engagement abroad and would turn up again in due course. A Victim's Experience. One of his London Victims to whom he was engaged for several months, and who found herself very much poorer for the attachment gave me a picture of Strett and his tactics. "He seemed," she said, "to be a very decent fellow, good looking and jotly. and the sort of man you could trust. I first met him in Shaftabury avenue where he was employed as a bead waiter In a restaurant. He asked me to see him again, and I agreed to do so. After a while we became close friends and appeared to spend a fair amount of money. ."When we had known each other about a month he asked me to marry 'him. but Z thought tt was rather PROTECT PLANTS FROM INSECTS THREE SIMTIiE RULES. By F. F. ROCKWEI.Xk. (Author of "Around the year In the Garden" and "Making a Garden of Small Fruits," etc.) How often have you seen a perfect blossom, for which you have per haps been watchfully waiting for weeks, come to maturity only to be disfigured, if not destroyed, by some pernicious visitor to your garden. Or you have carefully set out and tended some day that the leaves are showing favorite flower, through to the early stages of growth, only to discover come day that the leaves are showing fine White spots and curling up, and to find on close Inspection after the damage is done, that thousands of little green plant lice whose presence you had ' never suspected was the cause of It. The lover of flowers Is often discouraged by the number of new bugs, worms and beetles which turn up. There seems to be something to attack every plant that grows, and as one has got the better of one trouble another one appears. Success In the war against worms and bugs, however, as in everything else, is largely a matter of "knowing how." The great majority of the Insects attacking your flowers, or flowering shrubs, or fruits, can be controlled by two simple remedies. That may sound "so easy" as to seem suspiciously like a patent medicine advertisement but it is a fact. No gardener can, however, hope to be successful in fighting the garden pes until two definite things have been learned. First To become familiar enough with the various insects first as to be able to tell what class or type they belong to, so that ths proper material can be used against them. Second To watch constantly and carefully ta detect the first sign of trouble, and to be prepared to act immediately. Ninety per cent, of the insects at tacking your flowers belong to one ot the two general classes of eating in sects or chewing insects. When some new pests appear in your garden the first thing you want to determine Is HOW HE TAKES HIS MEALS! If he eats holes in the leaves, petals or flower buds of the plants, then it will be possible to kill him with an inter nal poison. The most effective of the Internal poisons, and the most con venlent to use under any general conditions, is arsenate of lead. This may be obtained in either paste or powder form. It is mixed with cold water, according to directions, to make a poison spray, that is effective against eating or chewing .insects. Calcium arsenate, a light white powder, is also mixed with water to make an effective arsenate poison spray. Either of these materials will leave a slightly noticeable white de posit on the foliage, which some par ticular gardeners object to. Paris Green, which is another arsenate poi son, does not leave any deposit; but it is not as effective, washes off much more quickly, and is not so safe to use as the foliage may be burned if the spray mixture is mixed too strong. Either of these poisons must be applied to the plants to be -protected when the bugs or worms to be fought first appear; that is, the poi son must be applied IN ADVANCE to what ever they are expected to teed on. As the sucking Insects, which in clude the various forms of plant lice or aphids, ARB NOT AFFECTED by arsenate of lead, Paris Green or any other Internal poison spray. If gardeners would ony learn this simple thing it would save many hours of work, soany plants, and many dollars each season. The sucking Insects get their nour ishment from Inside of the leaves of stems of the plants. Although they may appear at first to be Aoing little damage, they are really much more injurious than most of chewing in sects. Unless immediate steps' to fight them are taken, they are likely to ruin the entire plant or bed in a short time. While many things have been recommended for the control of plant lice, scales and sucking insects, the one. which has proved the most convenient and the most efficient under ordinary conditions is nicotine sulphate, forty per cent, strong. This is put out under various trade names such as "Black Leaf Forty." Nicotine Extract, containing as little as twelve per cent, nicotine, with other ingredients, are effective but the brands containing forty per cent, being stronger requires less to make a good quality of spray material and are really cheaper, although they may cost more per ounce or per pint. To use they need merely to be mixed with cold water. On some plants, especially those with smooth shiny foliage, it may be necessary to add a small amount of soap to the spray to make it spread and stick better. One teaspoonful of forty per cent, nicotine sulphate to the gallon of water will make a strong enough spray to control aphids, scales, etc. Nicotine is called a "Contact Poi son." In other words to be effective, it must be applied DIRECTLY TO THE INSECXTS to be controlled. There is no use putting it on the sur face of the plant in advance, as is done with arsenate of lead and other "internal" poisons. As the plant ap hids and other sucking Insects gen erally work on the UNDER surface of the leaves, in applying nicotine spray it is desirable to use a spray with considerable force, and also with an angle or side outlet nozzle, so that the under surface of the foliage can easily be reached. If the rush Fuggestion, and I told him it would be better to wait for a little while longer in case he changed his mind. "Shortly afterwards he told me he had had some bad luck, as he had put his money into worthless shares. I sympathized with him, whereupon he appealed tot me to try and help him. I gave him all I had, 50 pounds, and a week later when I went to call on blm, I found he had left his em ployment and., gone to another part of England. "While I was making inquiries I met three-other women who were also searching for Mr. Strett, and I learn ed for the first time that he was an lm poster, and had been robbing girls 8T7BTJRBAHS AND CHICKENS. Poultry an Asset for Thrift and Health. Mrs. Lorence M. Woodside of Win chester, Blasa is exemplifying in her home garden the advice she gives to other women through her lectures. She advocates conservation, not only of food and money, but of health and energy, thre'Jgh contact with Mother Earth. To nse an old-time simile, Mrs. Woodside does not "keep all her eggs in one basket," though she does keep a basket especially for eggs. In addi tion to the cultivation of vegetables and fruits and flowers, she finds time to attend to the needs of a busy flock of chickens, believing that fresh eggs and chicken meat augur favorably for SPRING CHICKENS both health and thrift. Suburban and village dwellers may not only augment their supplies ot table delicacies In an era of prohibi tive prices by keeping poultry, but the necessary care of the fowls fur nlshes the best ot opportunities for Interesting children in all dumb crea tures, and many, like the little fel low in the picture, learn to love them as pets. From the sale of surplus eggs come many a Thrift and War Savings Stamp; indeed, raising poultry as a method of acquiring loose change has decided advantages. Mrs. Woodside also believes that the pig, when kept under sanitary conditions, has its good points as a promoter of thrift and good living. THRIFT IN THE SCHOOLS. What One Boston School Is Doing'. Since Jan. 1 the pupils of the Quincy School in Boston, Frederick W. Swan, master, have Invested about $1700 In Thrift and War Savings StampB, aver aging about $2 per capita. In itself, this may not seem a great deal, but the fact becomes significant when it Is known that probably not one of the pupils is of American parentage. Some 20 odd nationalities are repre sented In the school, and one whole class ef non-English speaking pupils Is made up of Chinese. All are whole heartedly for America, and most of them work for the money they put in to stamps, both as an Investment and ar a patriotic duty to the ratotry that stands vividly in theirjnds as the land of Justice and opportunity. There's a "V in every War Savings Stamp. If you don't believe it look gain. Or hold-W. S. S. until maturity and be shown. insects have become numerous enough 'so that some of the leaves are tightly rolled or curled up, and the insects "cannot be reached with a spray, pick off AND ' BURN all such leaves carefully before spraying. Where the plants are badly infested, it may be necessary to repeat this spray two or three times at intervals of a few days to clean the plant thor oughly. Applying clear cold water with considerable force twelve hours or so after spraying will also help to clean the plant. Nicotine sulphate rightly used is absolutely sure death to aphids and other similar insects when it is brought into direct contact with them. So you can keep your plant clean if you just do the job thoroughly enough. Root Maggot and Borers. Some of the insects attacking plants and flowers though fortu nately not many of them work In the roots in the soil, or inside of the stems or stalks of the plants .them selves. The latter are called "Bor ers." Their presence is indicated by the wilting of the top of the stalk at which they are at work, or by turn ing in color and putting forth im perfect' leaves; or, in the case of or namental trees or shrubs through a discoloration of the bark and usually a small hole at which a sawdust liko deposit appears. With fruits and pe rennials, cutting off and burning the Infested top is the simplest remedy. With fruit and ornamental trees the Borers may be dug uot with a sharp knife blade or reached and killed with a stiff copper wire. When plants wilt, or "do not act right," without any apparent cause, it is time to suspect some root worms or root maggots are at work. This can only be determined by taking up one of the affected plants. Then the affected plant should be taken up carefully with the roots and burned. If not fatally injured they can be put back and reset, especially if the large white grub has caused the trouble. Root maggots in the soil can be killed with the use of bisulphide of carbon. This is a liquid which. when exposed to the air, forms a gas that Is heavier than air and will cfc culate through the soil. , To use ic, make a small hole a few Inches deep Into the root of the plant, and pour in several drops of the carbon bisul arsnate of lead may be combined Ftar effective protection of your garden, you should keep constantly on hand a quantity of arsenate of lead or calcium arsenate, and also forty per cent, nicotine sulphate.

Look over your plants carefullv every few days for the first sign of trouble from injurious insects. It will take only a few minutes, but it ma be the means of saving some of youi precious1 possessions.
