ATTRACTIVE FLOWER BED. OLD-FASHIONED GARDEN A FAV ORITE SPOT OF MRS. ROOSEVELT. This Corner of the White House Grounds, With Its Blaze of Color, Attracts the Sight-Seer. Mrs. Roosevelt's Old Fashioned Gar den, as the generous collection of posies west of the south veranda of the White House is called, has been a continuous mass of bloom and color during the summer and fall, quite different from any of the other Govern ment flower displays. There are many of these, surrounding the different de partmental buildings, those of the De partment of Agriculture being particu larly elaborate and ornate, but it is the opinion of summer visitors to Washing ton that the old-time corner of the mistress of the White House is the most pleasing of all. At least it seems to strike the majority of fancies, for it recalls the scenes and times of earlier days. This part of the White House grounds has always been devoted to flowers, but until Mrs. Koosevelt's ad vent it has been rather given up to the l...

THE LEGEND OF TAHOE NONETTE V. McGLASHAN The old Indian woman glanced furtively at the distant sky line, and then centered her gaze upon the deep crystal waters of the lave. The Ong? she said. I will tell you of the Ong. • The -One was a huge bird, greater than the houses of the white men. Its body was like the eagle's, and its wings were longer than the tallest pines. Its face was that of an In dian, but covered with hard scales, and its feet were webbed. Its nest was deep down in the bottom of the lake out in the center, and out of the nest rushed all of the waters which Jill the lake. There are no rivers to feed the lake, only the waters from the Oug's nest. All the waters flow back near the bottom, in great under eweeps, and after passing through the meshes of the nest are sent forth again. Every plant and bird and ani mal that gets into tnese under-cur rents, and sometimes even the great trout are swept into the meshes of the nest and are there held fast to fur nish food for th...

Basket-Willow Growing •" INDUSTRY BEING FOSTERED BY DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE. \ I :.•.--,_■»,.-=.; ■ .'■-.-..■■ i. ■■•■;:: : ELLIOTT MITCHELL Secretary Wilson's statement that there are no bad acres in the United States is again brought to light through the efforts of the Department of Agriculture to induce more general attention to the culture, of the basket willow. There are very many farms in this country which contain some low land, and through which runs a small stream. This portion of the farm is too often allowed to run to waste, dense growths of weeds and scrub prospering in the rich, moist soil, and the locality rarely visited by the farmer except when in search of some stray cattle which have come down to the brook for a drink. Although introduced in this country as early as 1840, willow growing in America occurs only in restricted lo calities throughout a relatively small portion of the country. On account of the isolation of these groups of growers with little or no con...

UNRAVELLING WANGLED SKEIN She was sitting astern, in a pretty frock of blue and white, and a big hat shading her eyes from the sun. She was reading a book: while waiting for the boat to start. The Spray, a small pleasure steamer, tugged at her mooring ropes off Brighton pier. The Honorable Geoffrey Mannering watched, from the deck of the West Pier, this fragile figure of a girl. There was something more than admiration In his gaze. "I've been caddish enough," he mut tered. "The girl is scarcely more than a stranger to me. The loan of an um brella In a soaking downpour made us acquainted. I should not have presum ed upon such a triviality, but — but" — he broke off as the siren of the Spray shrieked" impatiently — "but I fell in love with her upon the spot" he added, "and that's the plain, sweet, madden ing truth." A band commenced to play softly under the bridge of the boat. Verna Moore glanced up at the sound, and Geoffrey turned away swiftly, moving off with long strides. . "I mus...

THE PICTURESQUE DAIRIES OF EUROPE. Government Investigation Shows Them Below the American Standard. We often hear of the model dairies of Europe, co-operative dairies into which a speck of dirt is never allowed : to lodge, of Danish butter that is in truth a dream and brings a fabulous price, of eggs guaranteed fresh and country-like, and other reports of the way they do things on the fine old farms of Europe until one begins to think that one can not be more than half living in this country. But how much of this sort of thing will bear investigation and close analysis? The Dairy Division of the United Sates Department of Agriculture is a progressive and useful institution and has done several things to destroy prevailing fallacies and incidentally establish the fact that American meth ods as a whole, in at least some phases of agriculture, are as far if not farther advanced than those of any other coun try. Not the least interesting of such in formation gathered was that collected ...
