Fire Sweeps Block in Baltimore. Baltimore, Md. Nine alarms were sounded for a fire that swept the lum ber yard, mill work plant and office buildings of John F.

The flames menaeed surrounding properties, including a public school building , and the Martin Luther Evangelical church. The loss is heavy. rPapermakers Call on Foresters for Aid. New York. "Pulp-wood costs and .values have now reached a point where .foresters can prove .to paper manufac turers that they must seriously .con sider plans for the growing of their .future supp'y of timber," said JR. .43. Kellogg, secretary of the News Print ;Service Bureau of New York, in a Jre cent address at the Cosmos Club be fore the Washington section, Society .of American Foresters. "A survey of the situation shows ,the urgeut need of immediate and large rscale efforts to provide a permanent supply of raw material for the basic Industry of paper making. To say that the United States last year produced 3,800,000 tons of wood pulp means lit tle to the ordinary reader, but the problem takes on a more concrete as pect when It is realized that 6,000,000 cords of wood, chiefly spruce and hem lock, were used to make this quantity .of pulp. The magnitude of the indus try is also more fully appreciated when it is known that the United ;States in 1920 produced 7,830,000 tons .of paper, or 147 pounds per capita.

NOVEL AND SATISFACTORY PLAN BETWEEN LANDLORD AND TENANT Fixed Wages Pius a Share in (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture) "1 took the same interest in my work as-a tenant as I take in my own farm. 1 began work without a dollar and with very little knowledge of farming, but -while -I .was on the farm I learned a -good deal. I had ample opportunity to study. the. principles controlling crop growth, soil improvement, stock man agement, etc. The ' inspiration 1 re ceived was valuable indeed, and dur ing my .period .of -service I earned enough money ; to buy the small farm on which I now live." This extract from , a -statement made by a former farm tenant employee, now a farm owner, 'reviews a relation ship between owner and tenant that i great many persons on both sides of the farm-landlord -situation may well envy. There .is possibly no -subject connected with . the business of farm ing which leads to,-as many misunder standings, - dissatisfactions and mutual losses as the management- of. a- farm by a nonowner. -Somebody has said that nothing short of .application of the golden, rule would ever bring about sat isfactory arrangements between the owner and occupant of . a farm, and yet, in this case, there was nothing eleemosynary In the arrangement. Tested by Fifteen Years' Trial. The man who 'made the - statement quoted .-above was 'for :a number of years the manager-of one of. two -ordinary-sized hog farms-owned by a man in Illinois, and the plan under which he was engaged as farm manager has been followed by the owner with al most ' unfailing success for more than fifteen -years. .Briefly, the -plan was nothing more or ; less than a straight annual salary which included : tenant house and the usual garden, and poul try perquisites, and. as a bonus, a share-of the net profits. .The profit-sharing! plan has-served to stimulate the efforts of the employee and has greatly lessened the supervi sion .necessary -on :th part .of the owner. By the use of the telephone and occasional visits he is able-to keep In .touch 'with -the farm problems and to co-operate effectively with the man ager. -Since the owner was farming himself it was important that the man agement of his other two farms take as little of his time as possible. Thus far the managers have been selected from the men employed on the home farm, which, serves .as a .training school. 'How "Net Income Is 'Determined. The managers are given a regular monthly wage and . a bonus consisting of one-third of the net farm income. In determining the .net income 5 per cent interest on the valuation of the property is first taken out, as due re TOMATOES ARE BEST IF RIGHTLY PRUNED Fruit Is Larger, ttearter and Su perior in Flavor. Grown in Home Garden Staking and Pruning .Require Little Trouble and Will .Fully .Repay Trou ble, Say Specialists. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture) A thrifty tomato plant left .to itself will spread over a space from 4 to -6 feet in diameter and will produce a peck or more of tomatoes. If staked and pruned it will yield about the same quantity of fruit, the tomatoes will be larger, cleaner, better flavored. and superior in every respect, and enough space can te conserved to ac commodate five other plants cared for in a similar manner, say garden spe cialists of the United States Depart ment of Agriculture. The staked and pruned plants are easily sprayed, and will continue to produce fruit later in the fall than plants which are allowed to spread naturally. As a rule, also. the pruned tomatoes will mature ear lier. On the scale on which tomatoes are grown in the home garden, stak ing and pruning require little trouble, and will fully repay the effort. When the plants begin making a vigorous growth, shoots will appear in the little pockets where euch leaf joins the .stem. Later the blossoms appear on the opposite side of the stem. In pruning the plant, remove all these side shoots and those around the base of the plant, being careful not to dis turb the blossom clusters. The shoots, sometimes called suckers, should be pinched off shortly after they appear. The ma:n stem can be carried to the full height of the stake, then allowed to h&ng over. By this time six or sev en blossom clusters, on which the fruit is developing, should be set on the stem. Scours and Thumps. Scours and thumps in the young pigs must be guarded against in the first few weeks. Scours generally come from suddenly overfeeding the sow or from changing her ration abruptly. -'''itr - ' I'd Profits Give-Zest to Farm Work. turn for capital, after wnich all ex penses are deducted, -such as for thrashing, the manager's wage, extra labor, machinery repairs, 'depreciation, and the cost of fertilizers and seeds. Each of the two managed farms has a 'house for the manager, who also can use the work horses to -drive for per sonal use, has a garden, -and a cow or two for supplying the family with milk and butter. Fifty 'Chickens are fur nished, and the family is permitted to raise as many as . possible to supply the needs of the farm table, 'but on Decem ber .1 all the chickens above the origi nal number must be sold, .and the land lord gets one-half 'the receipts. The purpose .of this limit on chickens is to enable the manager :to have his own poultry supply without taking unduti advantage of his opportunity. In order to calculate .the amount of money which the manager Is to re ceive on this plan it lis .necessary to -d a certain amount of bookkeeping. This is left -to the owner, wJio keeps a set of fann accounts, and on March 1 a complete Inventory Is taken and a yearly summary of the farm business is completed. In cases .of disease, poor crops, or a partial failure which is tin avoidable, thus cutting down the In come of the manager, .the owner makes some allowance -and gives the mana ger, ;ln addition 'to the wages he has received, what he thinks is due hlra for the work he has 'done, and the re- sponsibility he has-assumed. In the period before war inflation the managers made ;from $41 to $49 per month the yearrround, in addition to having their rent, garden, milk, but ter and eggs. The manager of the smaller farm, comprising '96 acres, re ceived $35 a month straight wages for four years up to 1918, and his bonus averaged $168 :a year. The manager of the other farm, comprising 160 acres, formerly received $30 per month and was increased to $35. .Manager '.Well Paid. When the fact is -taken into consid eration that the managers employed under this system rare provided with houses in which to live and are given the privilege of raising 'their home sup plies -of -vegetables, milk, poultry and eggs, it will be seen that -their 'neces sary expenses are inconsiderable, and it must be conceded that they are well paid for their services, in view of the fact that they have 'no Investment risk, The length of time which the men re main on the farms -shows that this method of employment must have been satisfactory both tto employee :and landlord in these .eases. It should be pointed out, however, that the tenunt should have absolute. confidence in hl landlord before he would be justified in working under this system. BEST TO STICK 10 STANDARD Gardener Should Nat Be Misled :by Highly Colored and Much-Advertised 'Vegetables. No gardener Should be misled by highly colored :and much-advertised novelties, or unfamiliar varieties of vegetables. Some .of them may be good, but it iis better :to stick to the standard, well-known and approved varieties. Many varieties .of a certain vegetable may be listed pin the cata logue, but -only .a few ,may be suited to your particular soil, climate or needs. If in doubt about what to plant, consult your state college of agriculture, the United States Depart ment -of Agriculture, the local county agent or some experienceó gardener in the neighboi'hood. Carefully figure the varieties and amount of seed re quired; pta-oe orders 'befone -the est stocks of the seed firms are exhausted. Usually it is advisable to parchase "ed from near-by seed firms or dealers. W00DL0T LIKE BANK Í A wood lot should be treated as the principal In a savings bank.

It is time that the American people should awaken to the fact that it is not -eoddling by the federal government that is needed, but that the future rests with the people themselves.

The Reconstruction of Every Living American to America's Cause. 1 By COL. F. W. GALBRAITH, JR., There never has been a time in the history of this great country of ours when the need of an understanding among loyal Americans was more needed. Tonight in this great hall Americans outside, we worship at the We worship here and give answer destroy this country, who would alienate us from our own and from our .allies with whom we are cemented by the blood of our fellows. This meeting in itself means more than sages from every 6tate in this great ;triotic men and women who have said, "Thank God that in that great city ;f New York there is tonight a reeonseeration of Americans to this great country and to American ideals." Tonight we hear the voice of our heroic dead who seem to say, "I have seen the coming of the Lord ; fight on, my America, fight on." My friends, this is a night for the reeonseeration of every living American to the cause of America. Life of the Typical in Her Thirties ) By W. L. GEORGE, To me, the lif -. of the American When the novelty of married life is gone she instinctively begins to want something else to fill her life. What she desires above all else is love and companionship, and these are the only things on earth her husband denies her. One hears of the devotion of the American husband, slaving from early riiorning until late at njght, denying himself all social pleasures and directing all his energies to "making his pile." It is usually between the ages of thirty and forty-five that his "pile" is made. He loves her no less, but, like the Russian peasant and his ikon, he forgets his adoration in his business and consequently the wife suffers. Until the American husband .realizes this essential and overwhelming desire of his wife and gives her love and companionship at the same time she will continue to suffer. Brig. Gen. Douglas MacArthur, TJ. S. A. The most vivid recollec-, tion that we of the Rainbow division have on St. Mihiel day is of those who went two years ago to their last charge. We cannot forget. Blue lipped, smudged with sludge, chilled by the wind and rain of the foxhole, they drove through to their objective and to the judgment seat of God. We will not say that they had died. They have but passed beyond the mists that blind us here and come to the end of the rainbow. Walter P. Harris, Havana The greatest gambling center in the world will be placed in the western hemisphere if plans for "palaces" in Cuba -develop as given out. Unfortunately we are accepting the unsound view that the people are incapable of looking after their own affairs, that they have become so enervated and devitalized that governmsnt officials and government flunkies and government bureaus are needed for their guidance and protection. There is an effort to apo theosize the federal government, to degrade the states, and to destroy the confidence of the people in them selves, in their own powers, and in their capacity for self-government- Individuals under this meretricious doctrine lose their identity in the general mass.

BACK OLD TIMES Familiar Phrase Touched Responsive Chord In the Breast of Former War Comrades. A jostling, heaving crowd was strug gling for the few vacant places on the last bus home. A' tired-looking conductor, wearing on his breast the 1915 ribbon, regulated the rush. "Full up!" he cried at length, effec tually barring further progress to a sturdy built young man who had swung himself on to the platform. The latter stepped off "reluctantly, exclaiming, "San Fairy Ann." The conductor turned quickly and laughed, and the demobilized soldiers on the bus who recognized the barbarous but familiar perversion of "Ca ne fai rien," laughed with him. "Come on," he said, and the man jumped on the moving bus with a smile of under standing in his eyes. A catchword, universally used in France had revived something of the army ! spirit of camaraderie. London Chronicle. Swiss Lakes Disgorge Relics. . The recent drought in Switzerland has lowered the lakes so much that archaeologists are having a great op portunity to examine the old lacus trine or pile dwellings which date back to the stone age. Old pottery ls be ing discovered in two lake dwellings revealed on the shores of Lake Neu chatel, says a cablegram to the New York Times, and hundreds of piles in perfect preservation and on which these dwellings originally rested are now clearly visible. Many persons have volunteered help for excavating the remains of these ancient dwellings, which, according to Doctor Kellerchief, the Swiss authority on the subject, ceased to be Inhabited about the first century of the Christian era. Nuraer our boats, which apparently were wrecked and sunk In past times, are now visible. Not So Encouraging. "Your father merely grunted when I told him I wanted to marry you."

They are so close in some parts of Scotland that the lakes can't get enough water, and have to go dry. A visitor tells the story of a Scots man, a prospective marine engineer, who was being examined by the cap tain. The skipper asked a number of diffi cult questions In order to confess the applicant, but the latter was always ready with an answer. Finally, In a tone of deepest con cern, the captain asked : "Now, suppose the water in your In jector was working properly, your boiler check was not stuck, or your pipes clogged, but you were not get ting any water In your boilers, what would you do?" The engineer looked puzzled for a moment, unable fully to grasp the sit uation ; then, with a knowing smile 00 his face, he answered : "I'd go up 'on deck and see whether there was any water in the lake. "You'll do." said the captain. Chi cago Daily News. Cement-Coated Naila. Approximately one-tenth of the wlre nails manufactured are now cement coated, according to H. A. Knight, who writes on the subject to the Iron "Age. The nails are coated by shaking them up in a hot tumbling barrel with a compound consisting mainly of resin, from which they issue with a thin, tough coating which greatly Increases their holding power. The friction of the driven nail with the wood melts the cement and forms a glue, which, cakes fast the nail. Literary Digest. Copper Mining in Alaska.
