ARTISTIC PLAN OF HOMESTEAD.
Keep the Place Beautiful by Setting
Out Shrubs and Trees.
In the adornment of a arm house
by the planting of shrubs and trees
little expense need be incurred. The
labor of preparing a lawn or grading
a driveway can be done by the farm
er himself, and $10 or $20 will buy all
Layout of Farmer's Home.
the ornamental trees required from
It Is to be borno In mind that trees
grow handsomer each year and will
add hundreds of dollars to the value
of the home. Notice the place the
man of means picks out when he goes
to look for a country home. He doesn't
drive up to some tumble-down farm
stead with the trees aeglected and
half dead. Of course net He tries
to buy a place with beautiful shrubs,
trees and lawns. If our farms were
more beautiful the boys and the girls
"wouldn't be so anxious .d leave them.
The Best Method of Securing a Pay
Clover seed will be a high, light
crop this year owing to the dry weath
er. Good heavy seed will be scarce
and high in price next year. Those
having a good stand of clover that
will yield one bushel of seed to the
acre would do well to save it. One
hundred pounds of plaster spread to
the acre will be a help Id increasing
the growth of the clover. Sow it
early next month. Those having a
mowing machine and & reaper plat
form can easily and cheaply save the
seed. A light platform of sheetiron
may be made to fit the mower. Bolt
the platform to the cutter bar, letting
the rear end drag on the ground. A
man should walk behind the mower
with rake to draw the clover on the
platform and when full It is pulled off
If there is a large growth of clover
and little seed, cut when Eeed is hard
and cure as for hay. The seed should
be threshed out in October and the
straw saved for winter feed. If seed
only is wanted, let the cut clover re
main in the windrow for several
weeks. The seed can then be thrash
ed out cleaner when the chaff is thor
oughly dry and partly rotted. If put
in the barn the clover must be free
from dampness or it will heat. If the
seed is stocked, make small stocks
and cover the top of the stock with
long hay to prevent rain from enter
ing. It is much better to thrash the
seed soon after It is stocked. If this
cannot be done put it under cover,
j Keeping Fruit
That It is possible to keep fruit and
vegetables in cold storage without ice
In a mild Southern climate has been
successfully demonstrated by one
North Carolina farmer. He is an ex
tensive applegrower, and has erected
a house in which he is able to keep
his apples long into tha spring and
summer months without the use oi
ice. As described in the Market
Growers' Journal, his nouse has dou
bled, deadened walls, and overhead
ventilators are open at night summer
and winter, and tightly dosed in da;
time, and in this house, when unaf
fected by the external heat, he retains
the night temperature, and even keeps
ripe peaches for weeks. The whole
Idea Is to have thick walls with a
dead air space and means for totting

Care of Pot Plants.
All potted plants should have good
drainage. As has been said before,
the soil should not be too heavy and
retentive of moisture. The roots of
plants should never be allowed to be
come dry, but they can use only a
very small amount of moisture at one
time. Roots never do well if they
are forced to lie in water. The sur
plus water not needed by the roots
should be quickly drained off. To
facilitate the rapid passage of water
through the pot the soil is made sandy,
In pots of four inches across the top
the water does not drain off fast
enough and it M Moaasary to put one
inch or so of drainage material in the
bottom of the pot. The beat material
for this purpose is broken pots or

ECHOES OF HOME WEEK FETES
It Is Predicted That the Vote at the
Coming Election Will Emphasize
Loyalty of Keystone State to Cause
Harrlsburg, Oct 5.
There has developed in the present
political campaign in Pennsylvania a
remarkable condition which will un
questionably result in the polling of a
large vote for the nominees of the Re
A sentimental phase of the canvass
which has been the subject of wide
spread comment is the outgrowth of
"home week" celebrations which have
been held recently at different points
throughout the commonwealth.
It is manifested in an unusual dis
play of state pride, of love for the
grand old commonwealth of Pennsyl
vania and admiration for its traditions
and glorious record.
The home coming of so many former
citizens of the state at the gatherings
held during the last few months gave
an opportunity for the people to con
trast conditions in Pennsylvania with
those of other states of the Union.
There were comparisons made which
could not but reflect credit upon the
administration of affairs in this state.
Upon every hand there were heard
words of commendation of the splen
did administration of Governor Stuart
and of the conduct of the various de
partments of the state government
which do not come directly under the
Jurisdiction of the chief executive.
Pennsylvanians Point With Pride.
Pennsylvanians are pointing with
pride to the many wise and useful
measures passed at the last session of
the legislature, among which may be
noted the strict laws to prevent the
manufacture and sale of adulterated
food stuffs and drugs, and for the
protection of retail dealers from the
crimes of such manufacturers as vio
late the law, the continued appropria
tion of the magnificent sum of $15,
000,000 for common schools, liberal ap
propriations for hospitals, charities
and public roads, ample provision for
the care of the indigent insane, pro
visions for carrying on with vigor and
effect the fight against tuberculosis,
and the careful and business-like ex
amination and investigation of insti
tutions receiving state aid.
The passage of the "Jones dirt road
bill," giving the respective townships
a liberal portion of the road tax paid
in cash, and the appropriation for the
payment of the 15 per cent formerly
allowed, has been the subject of favor
able comment in the rural districts.
State Without a Debt.
The fact that Pennsylvania Is the
only state in the Union which is prac
tically out of debt has been the source
of gratification to every citizen of the
It is also the only state in the Union
which collects no state tax upon real
estate, horses, sheep, cattle, farm im
plements or other personal property
of any kind save only money at in
terest. These and the many other conditions
in the administration of state affairs
commanding general approval are be
ing considered by the voters in the
present political canvass.
A Power In National Congress.
When former Pennsylvanians upon
visits home from other states, particu
larly some of the western states, dis
cussed the recent exhibition of the
power of Penlsylvanla in the national
halls of congress in the shaping of the
tariff legislation, they could not but
speak in terms of admiration of the
work of Senators Penrose and Oliver
and their Republican colleagues In the
national house of representatives in
protecting the great industrial inter
ests of Pennsylvania, in fostering the
farm and dairy interests, in giving spe
cial safeguards for the tobacco grow
ers of Lancaster and neighboring
counties against foreign competition,
and in other ways guaranteeing to the
wage earners, capitalists and business
men of the state a condition which it

REPUBLICAN VICTORY CERTAIN
Representative Citizens of Philadel
phia Will Be Important Factors In
Rolling Up a Big Republican ' Ma
jority. Special Correspondence.
Philadelphia, Oct 5.
Within the last few days the so
called reform movement in this city
has been given a serious setback and
there is now no doubt that the entire
Republican ticket will be elected by a
The business and professional men
of the community have entered into
the campaign and have lined up sol
idly for the Republican candidates.
Some of the most representative
merchants and manufacturers have
taken the lead in a movement started
by the Republican Business Men's as
sociation and are calling upon alt who
desire honest and efficient administra
tion of affairs to support the Republi
can nominees. Not only will they send
out a special appeal to Phlladelphlans
to vote for these candidates, but they
are planning for an immense mass
meting, at which prominent men will
Following the action of the mem
bers of this association, there was a
meeting of members of the bar, the
largest meeting of the kind ever held
in this city, at which resolutions were
adopted strongly indorsing Samuel P.
Rotan, the Republican Incumbent, for
re-election as district attorney. Over
one thousand lawyers have signed an
indorsement of Mr. Rotan.
Rotan's Election Conceded.
The effect of the aggressive atti
tude of the business men and the
lawyers was shown in the editorial ut
terances of the independent newspa
pers, which have all Indorsed the can
didacy of Mr. Rotan. The only news
papers backing Glbboney, who is Mr.
Rotan's apponent, are the Wnamaker
newspapers, with which hlB political
fortunes have been linked ever since
he entered the game.
The large registration of voters is
explained by the fact that the suppprt
ers of the Republican nominees have
been unusually active in the several
wards and have succeeded in getting
a larger number of stalwart Republi
can voters registered than at any time
since the registration law went Into
While the Glbboney men are making
claims of strength upon the returns
from the registration, they are not
based upon facts and are part of a
campaign of misrepresentation that
has been under way since the primar
ies were held.
Mr. Rotan's public call upon the
men who are charging election fraud?
to submit their evidence that the bal
lot boxes might be opened, has not
been answered, and that issue has
ceased to be a factor In the campaign
The candidates on the state ticket
have been receiving ovations wher
ever they have gone. They spent last
week In the northeastern tier and in
Mifflin, Union and Snyder counties.
They are booked for the opening rally
of the campaign in this city tonight,
and tomorrow night they are invited
to attend the reception to be tendered
Senator Penrose by the Workingmen's
Protective Tariff League.
Party Lines Are Drawn.
The opposition to the Republican
nominees In the state campaign is ab
solutely confined to the old-time Dem
ocracy. The lines are sharply drawn,
and Republicans and Democrats are
rallying about the standards of their
respective parties. There is not a
trace of factionalism within the Re
publican organization. The lines are
unbroken and the stalwart Republican
hosts will march to the polls in solid
phalanx on Nov. 2 and vote the full
Judge Robert von Moschzisker, nom
inee for Justice of the supreme court;
Senator A. B. Sisson, candidate for
auditor general, and former Senator
Jeremiah A. Stober, the party's choice
for state treasurer, are all men of high
standing and command the respect of
all who know them.
While the election of all of them is
conceded, there is a demand from
those who have studied the situation
from a broad standpoint for the exer
else of special vigilance to guard
against the dangers of over-confidence
or indifference in ttie matter of getting
out the party vote.
While this is what ordinarily would
be classed as "an off year," it is, in
fact, a very important year in the po
litical history of Pennsylvania.
With the tariff revisionists already
opening their campaign to carry a ma
Jorlty of the next congress, even if it
shall be necessary to do so with the
aid of Democratic votes, it behooves
Republicans, who believe that the
present tariff is going to greatly ben
eflt all branches of industry, to by
their votes enter an early protest
against any and all schemes to reopen
the tariff discussion, with the destruc
tion of business Interests that would
