Interesting Experiment Is Now
Being Made By Several
In recant years much has been writ

cultivation of ginseng, the roots of

for medicinal purposes. At three farms
In Washington, Pine Creek and Knox
townships experiments on a large scale
are now being made to test the truth of
these statements, and upon the results
may depend the establishment of a new
and important industry in the county.
One of the largest of these pioneer
ginseng farms is located near Pardus,
at the home of George B. Shlndledeck
er, and is the joint property of Mr.
-Shindledecker and John A. Weleh, of
ReynoIdsviUe. It was the privilege of
a reporter of The Star and a friend to
rvisit the place one day the past week
and Inspect the methods in use. '
' A space about half the size of a town
lot is now under cultivation, every part
of which Is surrounded by a high and
close picket fence and entirely' covered
overhead by closo wooden lattice work,

shaded, and all other conditions are
made to conform as closely as possible
to the natural habitat of the plant when
it grows wild in the shady forest. ' For

When the plants are large enough to

In the beds mentioned above and the
soil In which they thrive best seems to
be the natural loam secured from the

root to' reach full size, during whloh
time the only care required is the reg

Trouble In Changing Many
Schedules Given as the
Reason for Delay,
C The New York Central officials are
not able to say when the through pas
senger trains will start. It may be a
week or ten days or two weeks. One
thing sure, it will be soon. The delay
has been caused by; the work incident
to rearranging the schedules of the
various roads over which the trains
will pass. The first passenger train
will leave Chicago in the morning,
arriving here in the evening.
The character of the passenger ser
vice between Chicago in the west and
New York and Philadelphia in the
east was the subject of considerable
discussion by the New York Central
officials when General Miller was there.
It Ib practically certain that there will
be two trains each way each day, and
there will be a daylight ana night train
each way each day for Franklin people.
One eastbouod train, for instance, is
expected to leave Chicago at 8.25 in
the morning and arrive here at 7.30
in the evening. It is likely that local
passenger trains will be put on the new
road before the through trains start.

Last Stronghold of the
Native Grey Wolves
A Description Of the Famous
"Wolf's Den" in Washing
There is a hill northwest of Sherwood
from whence may be viewed a splendid
panorama of rural scenery. Thirty
miles away, where the faint blue hori
zon blends imperceptibly into the leaden
sky, lies the uneven crest of Boone's
Mountains, while nearer, and plainly
visible to the eye, Luthersburg, the old
pioneer village perched on the top of
the bills, shows as a spot of varied color
on the rolling surface of the landscape.
Here and there a column of smoke ob
scuring the bills In haze, betrays the
location of a mining plant and village
In the valley below. It Is a beautiful
spot and is doubly Interesting from the
fact that this hill, according to the old
er settlers of the land, was the last
stronghold and hunting course of the
gaunt grey wolves which have now
been utterly exterminated in the county.
Half a century has passed since the
last of these terrible marauders was
killed In this section of the state, but
there are yet living men who encount
ered wolves in their boyhood days, and
tracked them to their lair in the rocky
leages of the wilderness which then
covered the hills of Washington town
ship. As the ridge of the hill men
tioned above retreats to the north, Its
east side becomes extraordinarily wild
and broken. Great rocks, fully as large
as an ordinary dwelling, lie embedded
in the hillside, often towering like
jagged and Irregular cliffs which cannot
be scaled from below. The oak and
chestnut which are prominent nearer
Sherwood, give way to the pine and
hemlock, and the growth becomes more
dense in the region of the ledge. It
was in this Impenetrable region that
the wolves made their trysting place,
and In the fissures of the great broken
rocks that the young were brought
forth and protected until able to join
the savage chase for prey.
Save that the original forest fell be
fore the woodsman's axe almost a score
of years ago, and that the hill is now
covered with a tall seoond growth,
there Is little change in the place from
the time when it was the chosen haunt
of the wild. Except for the occasional
visit of hunters in the pheasant shoot
ing season, the spot is rarely seen of
There la one rock, or group of rocks,
in the region which was of old given
the distinctive title of the "Wolf's
Den." It was there legend states that
the last of the race existed, 'and the
appearance of the openings, the worn
path in the sandstone base, and the
location of the stone would seem to
bear mute evidence of the truth of the
Near the spot the growth of scraggy
pine and hemlock becomes exceedingly
dense. It seems designed by nature to
guard the den of a tribe of animal Ish
maelites. Penetrating the jungle, one
comes suddenly upon a great perpendic
ular mass of rock, ten to twelve feet
high and extending In broken stratas
forty feet or more. In front are many
Irregular boulders over whloh one must
clamber to see the base of this rook,
where, between smaller stones, open
ings lead into the den which apparent
ly exists. under the massive rock. The
largest of these entrances is from fifteen
to twenty inches across, but leads
in such a winding course that it is ex
tremely difficult and dangerous for a
man to attempt to penetrate the cave.
The northern face of the rock is even
more picturesque than the eastern.
About thirty feet in length, it has in
its middle a deep cleft in whloh smaller
boulders haye fallen in such manuer
that it forms a giant staircase, leading
to the moss covered top. of the atone.
From the oleft to the west end of the
monolith, along the top, a strata of rock
three feet thloks extends seven or eight
feet Into the air, forming a roof over
the smooth stone leige which runs be
low, and beneath which a man may
walk erect or oould, if he desired, build
a snug camp secure from rain and snow.
Along the base there is another en
trance to the den, apparently the "back
door" for escape in case of trouble.
On top of this huge rook a thick moss
has grown undisturbed for many years,
and just enough soil has been deposited
there to support the roots of saplings
and bushes. Here also may be observed
a thing which is extraordinary. From
a narrow clef t in the side of this hard
rock springs a tree, the trunk ot whloh
at its base Is fully ten inches In diam
eter, and whloh towers fifty feet above,'
erect and rigid. Yet the roots of this
tree seem' to penetrate the rook Itself
and the grey color of the stone and the
bark of the tree are so nearly alike that
one cannot . detect where the stone
leaves off and the tree begins;
Altogether it is a remarkable spot
and all it needs to make it positively
enchanting is the presence of one of the
pioneers to relate how, in the primeval
days, the savage grey villains whose
rendezvous It was
" . howled through the moonlit woods,
Loud answered by kith and king"
And to tell you bow, with a craftiness
almost human, the wolves. hungry and
desperate, would deliberately plan to
rouse and run down a deer for food;
how they would station sentinels at tbe
crossing-places along the trails usually
followed by the deer, and how, when
one wolf had run the frightened deer a
short distance, the ambushed sentinel
wolf, fresh and eager, would take up
the chase, until the animal thus ever
pursued by fresh wolves, would finally
fall exhausted In its tracks.
Philadelphia School for Nurses
Offers Free Scholarships
Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly
Love, has an exhibition of practical
benevolence in the work of the Phila
delphia School for Nurses which Is of
surpassing interest to every one inter
ested in the care of the sick, the educa
tion of nurses and the promotion of pub
lic health and sanitation.
The annual report showed that dur
ing the past year ten thousand, two
hundred and seventy-five patients were
supplied with nurses, who otherwise
could not have secured skilled cursing
care. Four-fifths of this service was
rendered gratuitously. It was shown
also that In teaching facilities, available
workers and number of students, the
school ranks as tbe largest school for
nurses In the world.
Several large classes of students are
enrolled in the Philadelphia School for
Nurses, who will, doubtless, witness the
extension of the work of the institution
in accordance with plans now develop
ing. A large number of free two year
scholarships are available to the young
women living throughout the entire
oountry, preference being given to
those from the smaller cities and the
rural districts. These scholarships in
clude room, board, laundering, uni
forms, all necessary instruction and
railroad fare paid to the student's home
town upon the completion of the course.
A preparatory Home Study Course and
a Short Resident Course are also avail
able to those who desire to quickly pre
pare themselves for self-support, but
are unable to devote two years to study.
Any reader of this paper who may be
interested in the general subject can,
by addressing the school at 2219 Chest
nut street, Philadelphia, Pa., get full
