THE CITIZEN", FRIDAY, SKIT, no, 1010.
IN THE WORLD OF
Danny Maher, Who Will Quit
Danny Malicr, tlie phenomenal Amer
ican jockey, will retire nt the end of
tlio present season, duo to his steadily
increasing weight.- Mnhcr, like 'Winnie
O'Connor, is going In for cross country
weight. Malior likewise will follow
the hounds and do a little gentleman's
ridinc, but the turf In the future will
see little of hi in save as a spectator.
"I am getting to the end of my rid
ing days quickly now," said Mnherv "I
have- risen in my profession, and I
thiuk I may say without egotism that
I have got about all out of It possible.
For over ten years I have been riding
steadily. I have amassed a fortune,
and I now own a magnificent country
home and am ready to leave future
turf honors to the youngsters."
Beaurepairo Breaking Records.
Along with annexing most of the
big English titles at swimming, Beau
repairc, the Australian, has started to
make history in the record line. He la
not attacking any obscure marks by
mediocre performers-, but is going for
the records of the cracks. A few
weeks ago he wiped off three previous
marks at the Exeter baths, London, la
one night. He first attacked tho 200
meters, which ho swam in 2 minutes
30 seconds. The 300 yards was the
next to receive the attention of the
Australian, and ho swam it In 3 min
utes 30 seconds. Tho best English rec
ord for this distance was 3 minutes
31 2-5 seconds, by T. S. Battcrsby last
It was In the 300 meters that Beau
repaire gave his greatest display of
speed, and he knocked a big sllco oR
all world's records. His time was 3
minutes 50 1-5 seconds, and nothing
like this has ever been achieved, even
with a tide or Indoors.
Searle Wonderful Single Sculler.
Coach Jim Wray of Harvard says:
"I think Howard Searle, who succoed
ed Beach as the sculling champion,
was the greatest single sculler that
ever sat In a 'boat. He rowed rings
around Beach in Australia after Beach
had beaten Edward Hanlan and Jake
Gaudaur. Then Searle went to Eng
land and rowed William O'Connor on
the Thames. O'Connor was the best
man Eughind ever produced, and
Searle'a Australian backers had no
trouble betting ?50,000 on their man.
The Australian won the race handa
down. Searle died a few months after
this race. Searlo was succeeded as
champion by .James Stansbury, anoth
er Australian. Sure thing gamblers
queered professional rowing In Eng
land just like they did In this coun
try." Shrubb Coaching Harvard.
If Harvard fails to win tho intercol
legiate cross country championship this
year it will not bo due to improper
The Atlantic association has engaged
Alfred Shrubb, the noted distance run
ner, and If he can Impart to the Crim
son runners some of tho things he
knows about the game Harvard will
clean up in November.
In 100S Shrubb coached tho narvard
cross country squad with success, Har
vard making a much better record
than previously or slnco In tho inter-
collegiates. It was under bis tutelage
that Herbert Jacques showed such
good promlso as a cross country run
Ottawa Crew Going to Henley.
It Is possible that the Ottawa eight
oared crew will go to nenley next sea
son in quest of tho Grand Challenge
cup. The Ottawa council has already
voted $500 toward the project It was
understood that this would be dono If
tho Ottawa eight won in tho senior
event at Washington. Tho Canadians
wero successful, and tho trip Is to be
In the nature of a reward.

Shriners Plan to Use "Bevii's
Slide" For Initiation
"Devil's Slide" is known to every
Union Pacific railroad In tho stato of
that they will Initiate a largo class of candidates In Weber canyon, using the
"slide" ns a part of their paraphernalia. Tho "slide" is about 300 feet long,
lying at an angle of about 00 degrees, with a shallow stream of water at the
lower end, while nwir the top of tho mountain which hems in Weber canyon
will bo found the commencement of tho freak of nature. The formation of the
ledges forming tho two sides of tho "slide" is most peculiar. While other
rocks and bowlders in that section of the Btato Ho in a general parallel man
ner with the surface of the ground, these project directly through the soil to
heights varying from one to ten or more feot from the grass tops. Between
the two rows of rocks or ledges thoro Is a comparatively smooth bed much
lighter in color than the sides, thus giving the impression that tho word
"slide" is trie most appropriate. Just how the Shriners propose to utilize this
much advertised canyon for initiation ceremonies Is unknown, but it Is certain
that n more unique place could not bo selected.

FKUTILIZKUS FOK THE GARDEN.
Soino of the Various Kinds Which
Cnn Be Used with Success.
Stable manure is rolled on by many
gnrdoners. but It is very liable to In-
troduco the seeds of weeds. Novor-
thelcss oxcollnnt crops can bo and
i aro grown with stahlo manuro alono.
I At any seed storo you can buy a
completo fertilizer I. o., ono con
taining nitrogen, phosphoric acid
I nnd potash. For ordinary gnrdon
crops from throo to twelve pounds to
ft sriuare rod Is about tho propor
' nraount. A good fertilizer for corn
, contains three per cent of pltrogen,
six of phosphoric acid and eight of
Turnips, cabbages, cauliflower and
lettuco requlro a largo amount of
field phosphate (superphosphate) ;
i commercial fertilizers used for these
crops should contain nearly twelve
1 per cent of avnllablo phosphate acid.
1 These crops also requlro a largo
amount of nitrogen, which can bo
added to advantage after the plants
are partly grown, in tho form of nl-
i trnto of soda scattered light on tho
ground near tho plants and rakod
in. Tomatoes and other crops may
also bo stimulated by the uso of
nitrate of soda used In the samo way.
It should not bo allowed to touch tho
plauts, and if used Just before a
rain, so- much the better.
Ground bone and wood ashes mako
an excellent fertilizer for fruit trees,
Bhruhs, and small fruits of all kinds.
Bone and wood ashes should be usod
In tho spring and thoroughly dug
Into the soli. When wood ashes aro
not obtainable use bone meal and
muriate of potash.
Asparagus should should have a
. dressing of salt in tho spring, and
j after the crop has been secured
! should bo given n liberal amount of
i ground bono, muriate of potash,
' and nitrate of soda.
Potash or wood ashes should nov-
or bo mixed with ground bono or
with poultry droppings, or thero
will ho loss of valuable ammonia..
Making n Burn Grain Chute.
..In barns where tho grain is kept
on the upper floor and fod out below
it is verv convenient to havo grain
chutes leading from each bin so that
tho grain may bo drawn near where
fed out. In our barn we havo ono
bin in tho basement, but I find It Is
very handy to havo ohutos loading to
each bin to Jraw out grain whon not
convenient to fill the largo hopper.
The cut shows a chute we havo In
uso In ono of my barns. We con
structed It some ton or twelve years
ago and havo used It more or less
The interior of tho chute should
not be less than six inches square
nnd for oats I prefer 8. The inter-
A BARN GRAIN CHUTE,

tion so that tho grain will pass down
by Its own wolght.
The hoppor shape device Just un
der tho bin Is quite necessary with
oata and especially ground feed. The

supportod by two cleatB on either
side. A small projection is allowed
In front for holding a bag.
