Take Good Care of the Lawn This Win
ter and You Will Hare Something
Worth While Next Summer, Says
Department of Agriculture
Washington, D. C., Nov. 7.—To stim
ulate the growth of a laiwn and to im
prove its appearance for the following
spring, no better treatment can be rec
ommended than the application of prop
erly retted manure in the late fall, ac
cording to the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture's specialist. This
application should not be made until
alter t.he frot/ts have stopped the
growth of the grass. Ten to twenty
two-horse loads should :be applied to
the acre, according as the soil is more
or less rich.
It is most important that the manure
should be thoroughly rotted before ap
plication so that all weed seeds are
killed, otherwise damage done by weeds
will more than offset the fertilizing
value of the app'ication. Manure real
ly needs cairefful handling before it is
suited for sperading over the lawn. Un
less it is properly '' composted '' it may
have most of its valuable constituents
destroyed by improper haudling. To
"eompost" manure properly it should
be treated as follows:
Pile all manure in heaps with alter
nate layers of sod or other litter. Keep
it wet enough so it will not burn. Let
it stand a whole year through summer
and winter, forking it over two or three
times during the year. lit will then be
ready for use on the lawns and danger
from weed seeds will 'be minimized.
Many people object to the use of ma
nure ait all, not only because of the
•danger from weed seeds, but because of
its unsightly and unsanitary appear
ance. These will undoubtedly profer to
use something else, and the most eco
nomical substitute is finely ground bone
or bone meal. This should be applied
at the rate of from 500 pounds to one
ton per acre, according as the ground
is more or less rich. It Should cost
between $25 and S3O a ton.
With the bone meal it is desirable to
use double the quantity of wood ashes.
These ashes contain considerable lime
in a very desirable form, as •well as
other valuable elements. However,
thev are apt to be more or less costly.
Ordinarily muriate of potash would
be found more economical thun wood
ashes, although the potash does not eon
tain the lime which the other fertilizer
imparts to t'he soil. On account of the
European war, the potash may prove
more difficult to olbtain than the wood
ashes. Only one-'ten'tih the quantity of
potash should be used as 'bone meal.
The potash may be sown separately
or mixed with the bone meal as desired.
T'he sumo i 3 true of wood ash«s if these
are used instead of potash. All applica
tions should be nvide before the ground
freezes permanently for the winter, as
otherwise the fertilizer may be largely
washed from the soil before it has a
chance to become incorrporated with it.
In regions where cottonseed meal
may be obtained at a price not over
$25 per ton it may be used satisfactor
ily in the pLace of the ground bone.
Tankage and fish scraps arc even richer
in important elements than ground
bone, but are frequently in bad me
chanical condition for handling (that is,
they contain hair or other foreign
icoarse matter). Their bad odor also
makes them objectionable.
Prepared aheep manure is an excel
lent dressing. As it has ibeen sterilized
iby drying and rendered odorless, thero
are net the objections to it thai! there
might be to ordinary manure, its one
drawback is expensiveness.
To protect worn places, if there are
any parts of the lawn which will be
tramped over when they are not frozen,
ami especially when snow is molting
there, these parts should be protected to
prevent persons from cutting across.
Tramping on tlie turf when it is cov
ered iby slush or snow is as destructive
to a lawn as almost anything else.
It is hardly necessary to say that
nothing will be gained bv scattering
gras3 seed on 'Che lawn at this season.
The Official Cotton Standards to Be
Promulgated by the Secretary of
Agriculture Hereafter to Form Bas
is of Future Trading
Washington, 1). C., Xov. 7.—The Sec
rotary of t'Ue Treasury and Secretary of
Agriculture announce that, beginning
at 11 {i. m. Thursday, Xovconber 12,
1914, ,public hearings will be ibeld in
room 43 of the new National Museum

in accordance with the terms of the
United States cotton futures act. Ten
la/t.ive drafts, of the regulation*! of both
Secretaries have been printed and will
be widely distributed prior to the hear
ings. As these regulations become a
part of the law. tlhe departments desire
to give every opportunity to all inter
ested paaities to discuss t'heni Jlllly be
fore they are promulgated, that no un
necessary machinery may be created or
needless limitations imposed upon the
trade. The Secretaries also wish to
learn the opinion of the trade as to the
best methods of enforcing the art.
While >thc act does not come into
farce until February 18 and the cotton
exchanges may make any form of con
tract they choose in the interim, the
Secretaries desire to set alt rest, as
promptly as possible, all question? as
to the method of procedure after tihat
The official cotton standards to (be

culture will hereafter form the basis of

posed standards will be exhibited at
the hearings.

Official Count Show Few Changes
Carlisle, Nov, 7.—Pinal tabulation
of the official vote gives the Demo
crats little consolation. McCormick's
majority in the county has shrunk,
Penrose still maintains his lead over
Palmer. Henry JTouck swept the coun
ty and the other pluralities remain
little changed. In fact all the conso
lation is that Slioop does not lead Bar
tier by quite as many as at first ex
pected. Thin, with the maintained
Congressional control, are the only
lights in a dark sea of gloom.

completed and this morning the totals
were sent to the State officers. The
vote this year was heavy, totalling ap

Algerian Olive Trees
In Algiers olive trees spring up wild
and are grafted where they stand. In
some regions they are so close as to
touch overhead. The average annual
yield for a tree is eighty to 11 pounds.
Some of the trees are believed to be
over 400 years old. It is estimated that
there are over 5,000,000 wild olive
trees in Algiers. The grafting of these
is being carried out systematically un
der the auspices of the government.

Pitt had answered a speech of Sheri

"Not. at all," said Sheridan, instant

"I am content with having had the
last argument,'.'

Text, "Is the young man Absalom
»afe'."'—Sam. xviii, I?.
Of all tbe tender touchinc tales thei'f
fs none more appealing than that of
David waiting at the sate for tidings
of Absaloui. Absalom was David's old
est and favorite boy, the son of a
Ueatben mother, handsome, winsome,
marvelous hair. Jolly, reckless, uitig
netie, resourceful, crafty, hfs wits
sharpened by exile for the murder of
bis half brother Amnon. "Handsome
is as handsome does" applied to Absa
lom. He was an Apollo from tip to
toe. but be was a demagogue, a leader,
a "jollier." "He stole the hearts of the
men of Israel." Wliat a political vote
getter he would have been—a great,
hand shaker, great proroiser. skillful
flatterer, a good set of teeth in his
smile, a cordial, interesting manner:
Now be was in rebellion against his
father, the king. The father had sent
soldiers against the young renegade.
David had given orders. "Deal gently
with the young man for my sake."
But that long, beautiful hair caught in
an oak as he was dashing by. General
Joab was glad of a chance to even
things up with the young prince, and
he pushed his spear In between his
ribs. When David hears the news his
heart is broken. Many a fond father
has uttered Ihe same woil. "Ob, iny
son Absalom, my son, my son. would
God I could have died for you!"
A Chip Off the Old Block.
1 pity tin* father. Many a man see
lng the weed# by the roadside of his
life recognizes the place where he him
self scuttered the seed. Absalom was
a chip off the old block, and David
knew it. If you would train up a child
In the way lie should go, go that way
yourself. Many an indifferent father
says, "Preacher, I wish you would do
Boiuething to reach my boy." Poor
fool! The boy's greatest preacher is
his father. No use preaching truth if
you He yourself. The same with drink,
or cards or women. Did David know
what Absalam had been doing right
along? It would pay some fathers to
learn to ride a "bike," or take a "hike"
with their boy. David had been guilty
of some sins that shut his lips to his
boy's sins. God, that's awful! poe*
any ghost rise in your home when
you chide your boy, my friend? When
you learn of Tom or Harry's downfall
don't always blame the "gang" he
went with. The mother v ill sing
"Where is my wandering boy tonight?"
a* she watches the clock and the
pendulum beats against her heart
"Juck never went to sleep without
kissing me good night. I'll wait for
him." God help her. she'll smell to
bacco and whisky. Here Is the flame
that never dies out
"la th« Young Man 8af«?"
No, he isn't! The devil's at the stile.
My church is on the edge of the tender
loin of a great city. Oh, the mothers
who inquire and the letters that come
to my desk! "I know you are a busy
pastor, but won't you look up my boy?
He and father had words. He left
home in anger. Tell him to come back.
We love him still." Say, mother, I
•aw your boy, Absalom, last night in
the city mission. He spoke of you with
tears. He was grimly reticent when I
mentioned his father. "The old man's
all right, but he wanted me to walk
the path toward the church while he
walked in the opposite direction." No,
the young man is not safe. Drink, reck
less spending of money, debt, wrong
companions of men and women beckon
him. One letter I got I'd rather write
back that the boy was drowned or
killed. The man who carried the news
to the mother here In Philadelphia that
her boy was the first one killed at Vera
OTUB had better news than I'vs had
when I mid the boy waa living. I
wrote to a dead soldier boy's mother:
' "There are things that are worse than
death. A past Joy may be better than
a future sorrow." Say, father, with
boys still at home, set a good example.
Everyday dealing with prodigal sons
and daughters makes me say, "Preveo
tion is better than cure."
Absalom's Tomb.
In life Absalom had raised * lofty
pillar in the King's Dale. Instead there
is a great pit in the forest of Epbraini
with a huge heap of etones cast in
upon his bloody and dishonored corpae.
Sin brings folks to strange grave*
One half block from where I preach
and write is the city morgue. Mr
clothing still gives evidence of my
visit there this afternoon, but noth
ing can take from my mind the horrid
pictures I see every week. Absalom
is in pauper's colfln in Potter's field
or on a dissecting tablfe at the medical
school. You've stood at Burr's grave
at Princeton and Irvlng's at Tarrv
town. One Is in the pit in the woods,
the other in the King's Dale. Down
Broadway beneath the guardian spire
of St. Paul's 1 stood where General
Montgomery sleeps in bis perpetual
fame; then at the Metropolitan Muse
urn of Arts I looked on the cenotaph
of Eilgnr Allan Poe. erected by the
charity, with its mournful in
scription: "He xr'.is great in his genius,
unhappy in life, wretched in his
death.'* It Is not far over to Green
wood to the mound where alone Tweed
found refuge from outraged justice,
which had pursued him half way
around the world. When the angel of
justice stands nt the tomb of Absalom
I wonder if be does not glance over to
ward the magnificent temple where
King Devid sleeps;
Placing Him.
