MARYLAND SH ADPASSINU AWAY The Maryland shad is passing away. The big pound nets at thr mouths ol the rivers and in the Bay are fast clear ing our waters of H*ii? best of Mary? land table fish. It is impossible for the shad to get through the miles and miles of nets set in the bay and in the lower psrt of the rivers and get fresh water to ceiHKsit their eggs. The rosult is thst the shad are oaught up by the thous ands down the bay before they have deposited their spawn and milliona upon millionsof eggs are destroyed and the schools of fish get snallet and smaller aa they come in from the ocean.?

Did you read that indictment of Vir? ginia road overseors last week by Pres ident Johnson of the N. & W. Railway.' He says: "The split log road drag ha? been the mcans of accomplishing more elTective results in the building of good dirt roads than any other implement," "and sofarnscan be ascertained, there areless than twenty-tive of then in Virginia." What an indictment oi iunoranre or indifference on the part ol our road oflicials. Tho best implemenl for road making cvor invented, one giv m free to the world by its inventor, one that costs practically nothing hul an hour or two of work. and ytt nol twenty.fiveof them in all the groai State of Virginia. that neetis them good roads thatwe arepaying for ?ver\ year and not gettin^! Presldcnt Johnson wants the farmers to try these drags and ollers to loar them one for a trial. We hope manv will try them just to make the road of? licials "sit up and take notice." Just to show how they have been wastinR the people'a mooey by refusing tolearr from tbe experience of others. other communities, and other States. Let our supcrvisors recognize the road drag as a road implemcnt, and through the road superintendent, if the law requires, pay the farmers for this work. They will thus leave the road money right at home, get the roads worked at just the proper time for the farmer will be rjght on the spot and could spare the time from his other work better before the fielda are fit to work and the roads in just the proper :ondition. MAY FLOAT OYSTERS. What aeema to be a compromiac ruling, and one that can be eaailj evaded, ia a deciaion iaaued Monday bj the U. S. Department of Agriculture. It waa announced that the floating ol oystera would be permitted by the de? partment if the water in whieh the floating waa done was of the aame saline content as the water in whieh the oyatera were grown. According to the testimony given at the hearing of the oyster ahippers at the department aome time ago, this will not plump up the oyater and make it atay fat, as in the caae when it ia Hoated in freah water. The departnient ruled that if oysters for interstate ahipment are given a drink of fresh water, they muat be marked on the container "floated oysters." ij tfiey are floated in water that ia polluted, they will be considered adulterated wfthin the meaning of the pure food law. All this militatea againat the sale of oyatera from Vir irinia. We do no floating here, yet it will continue to put in active compe tition with the favored Cheaapeake oyatera the oystera of the north that may be in poor condition but brought ip by floating. MEN WHEN OCCASION DEMANDS It was to this truth that Governoi Mann addressed himself in his Memo rial Day address, when he said: "I used to think, as a boy that thert could never be another Washington in the world's history. But I was mis taken. From tho. very county in which Washington was horn, in Virginia, there was called Robert E. Lee to make a name in the world's history. And from the boys of today, if the country ever needs another Washington or an? other Jefferson or another Monroe or another Marshall or another Lee, Vir? ginia will*be ready to produce him." It is an encouraging retrospect to consider that the War Between the States developed so rapidly so many men of really large stature. -Richmond Virginian. A DISTINCTION OVERLOOKED. Occaaionally a corre8pondent will attack with heat as the opinion of the paperto whieh he writes aome view whieh the paper itself may not hold and with whieh it in fact diaagrees.

Hundreds of acres of abandoned oys ter beds in New Jersey are being plant ed with shells, under lease to smal planters, made possible by a special aci passed last winter. Thirty thousant bushels of shells have already beer spread upon barren grounds, ruinekl bj lack of care, and $20,000 will be spenl in developing the industry as a resultol the new legislation. Northern oyster growers are wonder ing just now whether or i.ot there will be a set this year. If nature does not Jo its work this spring there is a grave possibility that by 1914 there will be an syster famine. The last really good oys? ter set in the east came in 1904. Since then there has not been anything of a let to speak of?just enough to keep Lhe market supplied with smal! Iots of ?eed, much of which has been shipp?d to other points. If there is not any set this spring, it will not make rnuch dif Ference with the industry during the 1910 11 season. The 1911-12 season will ?ee aBcarcity of oysters which will ;row more marked during the following ?eason and which may find entirely de aleted beds in the fall of 1914. - Fish ng Gazette. ajaa*auanarraD naa commission.

Corn is backward, yellow, and much of it needing replanting. Th? cut worm is also getting in his work. Fruit and vegetable crops throughout the eastem shores of Virginia and Ma? ryland have been seriously affectcd. The fields just now are evidencea of the harm that has been done by the cool nights and the wintry winds that have blown from tli?? ? ???!_a *_ . Warm weather in March and an al most total absence of the high wind; that usually mark that month encour aged truckera to plant early. fftnaa quently many crops were well abovt ground when thecold weather set inand atunted them. Reana and cantaloupea eapecially show the effects of the wea? ther. Warm nights are especially fa vorable to the development of early vegetable crops, and without them the yield ia almost certain to be ahort. Strawberriea, thjugh now nearly over, have been slow in ripening be? cause of the cold. Peas have been pretty well gathered and the yield has not been heavy. Sweet potatoea set out several weeks ago are just as they were when planted. They have grown tione, but on the contrary have died from the continued cold Notwithstanding the backward sea? son larger crops than usual have been planted, and some harvested, this sea? son than ever before. A New York reg ular liner took on one trip from Nor folk 5,000 baskets of early cabbage, 3,000 crates of kale and thousands of packages of other trucks. Prices have kept up fairly well. i maio smpmema msc year trom (Jap* Charles amounted to about 300,000 bar rel8. The crop this year is believed tc be about 25 per cent. heavier, whieh will bring the output for that Virgioia port this aeason up to at leaat 375,00(1 barrela. About two-thirds of the crop of Northampton county goe8 out from there. The output from the whole county will run over 550,000 barrehj. Delaware'a greateat atrawberry aea? son is now on. Reports from the rail roads show that to date 14,260,711 quarts of berrie8 have been shipped from points down the State, as compared with a to tal ahipment for laat year of 9.576,221 quarts. A million quarts are being shipped every day. ARRAIGNING THE LAW. The system under which the law h administered in this country is a hun dred years behind the age, the proce dure in equity cases is a scandal to oui jurisprudence, many cases are decided not on their merits, but purely on technical questions; and not only has something got to be done about it, but someLhing will be done about it. This is the sum and substance of a itatement given out by a joint cornmit? tee on reform in legal procedure of the National Bar Association and the tfational Civic Federation, at the con dusion of a conference held in the Law /ers' Club in New York last week at he invitation of former Judge Alton i. Parlc*?r *'Ninety per cent of the proverbial law'a delaya," saya the atatement, **are due to the system under whieh the law is administered, rather than to the in tention of the attorneys interested in delayed auits or the benefit resulting to either aide from delaya. Aa a raatter of fact, it is to everybody's interest to have law auits quickly and cheaply jiaposed of."
