The Sunnyside Greenhouse.
It is six years since John Schleider began
keeping a greenhouse at the corner of King
and Washington Sts. Mr. Schleider was
originally a tailor and began keeping flowers
for his own pleasure, but his fondness for
them led him to give his entire time to
their cultivation. Ills business has out
grown the space allotted to it and he has
completed a mammoth double greenhouse a
few rods east of the north end of Washing
ton street. Each part is 100 feet long, 2;
feet wide and 12 feet high, and by means of
a hot water heating system, has, in the
coldest weather, the atmosphere of a sum
mer day. Over 3.G0Q panes of glass, cover
ing 5,000 square feet were necesaary for the
new house. Water is supplied by a wind
mill to a 183-barrel tank, which is enclosed
in a square tower. One part of the house
contains 1,000 rose bushes and the other
has 3,000 carnations. Among the roses
were the light pink Mermets.tbe deeper pink
bridesmaids, the fragrant piuk La France
with its curly petals, the light yellow pearl
and its copper tinged neighbor, the sunset,
the deep red Gontler, the Souvenir de
Wooten, the Carnot and the pale green
tinted white Nephetos. The American

but Is not very profitable. In larger cities

There area great many varieties of carna
tions but Mr. Schleider prefers to cultivate
a few of the more popular varieties, among
which are the medium red Scott, the large,
light pink daybreak, the white Lizzie
McGowan and silver spray, the white
Ilellen Keller with edges delicately penciled
with red,' the large A Ibertlna which has a
light pink color, and the small but very
deep red Portia.
The roses are sprayed every day, but the
carnations receive little or no water during
the winter. The flowers' worst enemies are
the green fly and the red spider, but these
are kept down by a tobacco fumigation once
a week. The red spider is averse to water
and does not thrive very well on rose bush
es, which are frequently sprayed. All the

The Revolt of Nayan, a Great Chief, Against
Now this Kublai Khan is of tho right
Imperial lineage, boing desconded from
Chingls Khan, tho first sovereign of all tho
Tartars, and he la tho Eixth lord in that
succession. He came to the throne in tho
year 1250, and the empire fell to him be
cause of his ability and valor and groat
worth, as was right ond reason. His
brothers indeed and other kinsmen disput
ed his claim, but his it remained, both be
cause main tol nod by his great valor, and
becauso it was in law and right his as be
ing directly sprung of the imperial lino.
Up to the year now running, to wit, 1298,
he hnth rclgncd two and forty years, nnd
his age is about 85, so that ho must havo
been about 43 years of ago when ho first
camo to tho throno. Before that time ho
had often boon to tho wars and had shown
himself a gallant soldier and an excellent
captain. But after coming to tho thorno
he never went to tho wars in person 6avo
onco. This befell in the yoar 1280, ond I
will toll you how he wont.
Thero was a great Tartar chief whoso
name was Nayan, a young man of 30, lord
over many lands and many provinces, onrj.
he was undo to the Emperor Kublai Khan
of whom we are; speaking. And when ho
found himself In authority this Nayan
waxed proud in tho insolence of his youth
and his great power, for indeed he could
bring into tho field 300,000 horsemen,
though all the time ho was liegeman to hlsL
nephew, tho Great Khan Kublai, a3 waa
right and reason. Seeing then what great
power he had, he took it into his head that
he would bo the groat khan's vassal no
longor. Nay, moro, ho would fain wrest
ilia empire from him if ho could. So this
Nayan sent envoys to another Tartar
prince called Caidu, also n great ond po
tent lord, who was n kinsman of his, and
Who was a nephew of tho great khr.n nnd
his lawful liegeman ulu, though ho was iu
robelilon and bitter enmity with his sover
eign lord aud unele. Now, tho message
that Nayan Bent was this: That hohimsolf
wan making ready to march against the
great khan witli all his forces (which wora
great), ami he begged Caldu todolikewiso
from his side, so that by attacking Kublai
on two gidesat onco with such great forces
they would bo olio to wrest his dominion
And when Caidu heard the message of '
Nayan ho was right glad thereat ond
thought tho time was como at last to gain
his object. So ho Hunt back answer that
ho would Oo as reqticstod and not ready his
host, which mustered a good 100,000 horse
men. "The True Story of Marco Polo,"
