that as a fact.

New Use For the Gramophone.
It has been left to the managing
board of the Moscow, Windau and Ry
binsk railway in Russia to turn the
gramophone to practical use, for the
board has announced its intention to
set up a huge gramophone at the Mos
cow station of the line, so that the ar
rival and departure of every train can
be announced clearly to the traveling
public. At the same time the gramo
phone will sound the bell thrice, as is
Usual, before a train starts on its jour
ney. As over 70 per cent of the people
of European Russia are unable to read
or write, the ordinary time tables arc
not of the smallest use to them, and
the gramophone referred to has a
splendid future before it if only it
can be made to speak clearly and loud

Oat Stalks Over Seven Pest High.
Oats rising seven and a half feet
from the ground and carrying heavy
heads are a reality. They were grown
by Henry Stenerson at Sawtelle, Cal
These immense stalks are the result of
considerable study and experimenting
on the part of Stenerson. He has pro
duced about half an acre of the high
oats this season and intends to sow
more next year. The commercial value
of the enlarged variety lies in the
great amount of hay which will result
from the increased size of the stalks.

National Organization Formed to Lift
the Flowor Higher In the World.
At last the Lady Sweet Pea is to have
the position of dignity her beauty mer
its. The other day at the Museum of
Natural History in New York city a
society was formed in her honor,
named the National Sweet Pea Society
of America. The object of the society
will be to lift the Lady Sweet Pea high
er in the world and to find out ways
of adding to her loveliness, though.
Judging from the specimens on view
at the first annual exhibition of sweet
peas, which opened recently at the
museum, the latter will be as much a
work of supererogation as gilding re
fined gold or painting the lily.
The finest collection of sweet pea
blossoms, counting the number of va
rieties, was shown by Howard (iould,
whose gardener, Harry Turner, was
elected president of the new society.
There were sixty-one varieties and as
many tints In this exquisite group.
W. Iv. Duckham, gardener for D.
Willis James of Madison, N. J., won
the prize in class 2, also for the largest
collcctlon of sweet peas. Seth Low
carried off innumerable prizes—$10 for
the best fifteen vases of sweet peas,
$10 for the best six vases and $10 for
the best ten vases, $3 for the best
vase of white ones, and so on.
Besides the sweet peas, there were ta
bles of orchids and many other flow
ers, sent not for competition, of course,
but "Just to set the place off," as one
exhibitor explained. But the flower
lovers agreed that most beautiful of
all were the sweet peas that filled the
long tables in the center—
With delicate wings,
A-tlptoe for a flight,
and sending their perfume abroad.
The vice president of the new so
ciety Is W. II. Walte. Harry A. Bun
yard is the secretary. John Craig, pro
fessor of horticulture at Cornell uni
versity, was there and at the evening
session read a paper on "Trial Grounds
For Sweet Peas." Professor Craig said
afterward that Cornell was about to es
tablish test grounds for sweet peas,
such as it has now for peonies, and
that he had come to this gathering to
assure the Sweet Pea society of Cor
nell's co-operation.
Minneapolis Man Promotes Organiza
tion of American Star Gazers.
A movement has been started by
Charles M. White of Minneapolis,
Minn., to organize a society of all as
trologers and students of astrology
and to Incorporate the society In order
to give the reputable astrologers in
the United States the dignity of a pro
fession which, Mr. White says, is as
legitimate as the profession of medi
cine, dentistry or surgery.
Mr. White is now sending to almost
every big city of the United States to
get in touch with astrological students
and prepare for organization. All as
trologers of doubtful character are to
be debarred from membership, and
any one practicing astrology In an il
legitimate manner or putting it on the
plane of fortune telling will be prose
cuted by the society and. If possible,
driven out of business.
Many physicians and men and wom
en of prominence are interested in the
movement. In New York the one
most active is A. Stevenson, and oth
ers are Ray Broughton and Walter II.

"I think intelligent men are begin

hardest kind before any one can even

and possibilities to the human race. 1
