Rose Vines Beautifying This Home.
THE BEAUTY OF VINES
By JOSEFHINE DE MARR.
When in doubt as to what to plant,
plant vines, is sound advice. Vines
■beautify; they are useful; they are
easy to grow; they shade from the
hot sun; they hide old or obnoxious
features; they encourage the birds to
nest about the house; they are the
drapery nature throws over and about
with a lavish hand to soften and em-
When preparing to plant vines be
sure to spade deeply, manure heavily,
and prepare the soil carefully. After
perennial or hardy vines are estab-
lished, it is difficult to cultivate them,
therefore, do all you can before plant-
ing them. When they begin to spin
they must have supports, otherwise
they will be stunted in growth and
There are so many beautiful vines
among annuals, perennials and hardy
vines that it is hard to decide, if the
choice is at all restricted. If you wish
to blot out an old building, cover it
with vines. If you dislike tjie neces-
sary fence, turn it into a thing of
beauty by planting vines along its
A dead tree renews its youth if
vines are allowed to clothe itsbranches.
Let vines shade the porch and thus
make it a cool and leafy retreat from
the summer's sun. Curtain the shutter-
less south window with vines ana let
them grow about the home wherever
The grape is one of the most use-
ful vines. It is hardy; early in spring
its leaves are ready to cast a shadow.
Its blossoms are delicately fragrant,
and its fruit is delicious. Attention
must be given it in the way of fertil-
ity, pruning and tying.
Among wild vines the trumpet vine,
tecoma radicans, wild clematis, (vir-
gin's bower) and bitter-sweet are pop-
ular. In transplanting the latter from
the woods, be sure you procure one
that is fertile, for some of them do
not bloom. The Dutchman's pipe is
another desirable wild vine, but it is
not as common as those mentioned
The wild climbing rose has an ex
quisite flower; and once started grows
shoots 10 to 15 feet high in one sea-
The climbing roses are led by the
comparatively new rose, the rambler,
and its hybrids. However, its foliage
gets shabby aud spoils its beauty as
a porch plant. It makes a brave show
when blooming. The gooa old prairie
queen still continues to be the stand-
ard climbing rose.
The madeira vine, mignonette-
scented, has tuberous roots, which
are not hardy, grows fast and torms a
fine screen with its thick, fleshy
The honeysuckles are desirable
and popular on account of their many
good qualities. They grow quickly,
forming dense shade and are iron-clad
as regards insects and disease.
The various clematis are all beauti-
ful and desirable climbers. It is not
generally known that if clematis pani-
culata is severely cut back after flow-
ering, it will form new wood which
will bear fine flowers and many of
them next season.
Ideal plants for covering brick, stone
and rough surfaces, are the ampelop- j
sis and hedena helix—the true Euro-
pean ivy. The latter prefers a north- J
era exposure, a3 the alternating thaw- j
ing and freezing of late winter is apt '
to kill it if grown where the sun
The ampelopsis, better known as the
Boston ivy or Virginia creeper, is at
all times beautiful. The tender
growth in the spring is delicately
shaded and in the fall the leaves are
gorgeous in varicolored golds, crim-
sons and scarlet.
Morning glories, cypress pines,
sweet peas, gourds, nasturtiums,
Japanese hopB, wild cucumber, hy-
acinth bean, are among our most de-
sirable annual climbers. Seeds of
them do not cost much, and a pack-
age of one or the other will yield
shade, beauty and grace.
The Virginia creeper, honeysuckle,
nasturtiums and moon vines are trail-
ers rather than climbers. Of garden
plants the sweet potato and the dew-
berry are genteel enough to be grown
as trailers. They give edibles instead

How General Miles Handled Wild-eyed
Man With Bulletproof
When General Miles was a the head
of the army he used to be continually
besieged by cranks with pneumatii
firing guns, dirigible war balloons and
other martial inventions. But the gen-
eral would weed these cranks out with
admirable speed. An inventor in his
office one day tells of a curious iuci-
| dent in this relation.
A card was brought in and laid be-
fore the general.
"Oh, send him In," said Miles, "ills
business won't take more than a min-
ute or two.''
So in came a wild-eyed, long-haired
man twisting his soft hat nervously
in both hands.
"General," he said, "1 have here"—
and he took out a small parcel—"a
bulletproof army coat. If the govern-
ment would adopt this—"
I "Put it on; put it on!" said General
Miles. And he rang the bell. Tin
I clerk appeared as the inventor was
! getting Into the coat.
I "Jones," said the general, "tell the
captain of the guard to order one of
j his men to load his rifle with ball and
I "Excuse me, general," 1 forgot some-
thing," interrupted the inventor. And
with a hunted look he disappeared.
Children Cry for Fletcher's
.. ,S;\ <s
Henryetta, Oltla.—Mrs. Anna Hile-
man, of this place, says that she suf-
fered for 8 years with headache, back-
ache, and other complaints caused
from womanly troubles, and that she
had been to Colorado, Dakota. Mis-
souri, and Kansas seeking health and
never found it until she took Cardui,
She says she was given up and was
told that she had cancer and was con-
fined to her bed for three months.
She further says: "We then moved
here and after moving here, the drug-
gist here in Henryetta, Okla., told my
husband about Cardui and gave him a
Birthday Almanac, and 1 read the tes-
timonials and began taking it, and
could see after 1 had taken the second
bottle it was doing me good, and so I
have kept It up. 1 would not do with-
out it in the house. When I feel tired
and nervou9 after doing a hard day's
work It seems to rest me and make me
feel fresh . . .
Today I am a well woman and I
know that Cardui . . . has cured me
... I can do all my own work and
washing and house cleaning now with-
out ever giving out. I have several
friends right here in town who have
been unable to do their work for years
but are now up, since taking a couple
of bottles of Cardui. I weigh 146
pounds, and am always well . . . When
1 commenced taking it one year ago,
I ouly weighed 100 pounds."
| All druggists sell Cardui, the wom-
an's tonic. Try it if you need a rem-
edy of this kind. Get a bottle today.
The women who called just because
they couldn't get out of it were met
at the door by the maid.
"My mistress Is taking her beauty
sleep," she said.
"How long does it take her?" asked
one of the women.
"Oh, less than half an hour."
"She looks it," said the other wo-
man in a whisper to her friend. Then
they left their cards and trotted along.
The Whole Truth.
The reputation of children for tell-
ing the truth about their elders was
enhanced in Massachusetts recently
when Governor Walsh, attending the
dedication of a public building, ad-
dressed a number of pupils in the
elementary grades. By way of giving
his youthful audience uu object les-
son in various forms of patriotic
service, the governor pointed to his
military aid, who was lu a gold-
laced uniform, and asked: "Who is
"He is a soldier."
"What does he do?"
"Fights for his country."
"Who am I?"
"What do 1 do?"
"Nothing," chorused the children,
who, incredible as it may seem, had
! not been coached beforehand.

GROWING ONE'S OWN ROSE-
By L. M. BENNINGTON.
Nearly all hardy roses can be pro-
pagated by either rooting cuttings, or
layering shootB of the half-ripeneu
growth of the previous summer.
This can be done at any time after
flowering, but October is the season
usually selected. If layering is chos-
en, the shoot should be bent down,
and a slight cut made, slanting, into
tne wood at the bend, then the branch
should be fastened down into the soil,
and all the better if a stone or brick
be laid over the buried bend
The soil about the bend should not
oe allowed to dry out, and the plant
should not be moved until the next
nail, though, with care, it may be
transplanted in the spring.
Cuttings 4 to 6 inches long from
the half-ripened wood may be set in
sand—clean, sharp river sand, Is best
—and this must be kept in a sunny,
warm corner or window.
Usually, the cutting will be rooted
sufficiently to transfer to pots in
about six weeks to two months. Much
depends upon the kind of rose, and
the care given It, as some roses root
more quickly than others. The sand
must not be allowed to dry out or
When the roots are well started, j
the buds will begin to swell, and the j
new plants should be lifted carefully i
and potted in a soil made of equal j
parts of garden loam, leaf mold and
clean sand, given a thorough water-
ing, and the pots plunged in the soil |
of the cold frame, where the plants
will not freeze. In the spring the lit-
tle plants can be set in the border.
Cuttings may also be planted In a
warm sunny spot in the garden, as
in sand, and a fruit jar turned over
them, pulling the soil up around the
jar half its height and leaving until
ppring, keeping the soil up around the
jar moist during the fall montns.
These cuttings should not be lifted
until the following fail, unless with the
utmost care and plenty of soil about
