Wide Variation in
Vitality of Seedi
In the past l her was perhaps no
other trade In whl< !i swindling was so
rampant as In ti ; t of the sale of
seeds. The artless dealer of half u
century ago adulterated his goods by
adding a considerable proportion of
The seed adulteration act put a stop
fb that practice, but not to the sale of
dirty and old seeds. Most seeds are
“dirty” when fresh gathered—that Is,
they contain a considerable percent

seed houses possess elaborate and
costly machinery for cleaning, says
Clover seed has to be carefully
cleaned. If this Is not done the result
will be a crop of all kinds of pernicious
weeds In the clover field. Some weed
seeds, such ns those of the dodder, are
so tiny that It is almost Impossible to
detect them except under a stroitg
Seeds vary In their powers of retain
ing life. While those of peas and
beans will retain vitality for many
years, others, such as those of the
parsnip, are useless If kept over one
season. Seeds of the willow and the
poplar are so short-lived that unless
they land at once In n moist place,
they die in a few days.
Salesman Had Answer
for Silly Old Saying
A salesman In an Iowa town called
on a storekeeper who had an old
fashioned store In a splendid location.
The salesman was of the creative type
and was urging the storekeeper to
change Ids methods, and to adopt new
The reply of the storekeeper was:
“Oh, these old methods were good
enough for my dad, and I guess they’re
good enough for me.”
The salesman answered, and he
could make this answer because of his
experience and familiarity with the
situation: “Your dad, when he es
tablished this store, was the most
progressive merchant of his time—
that’s why he won success. If he had
been content with the methods of your
grandfather he would never have es
l'Mshed any business at all. Your
'd. and I knew him well, never re
us'd to consider new ideas; he adopt
d the tilings that lmd proved success
ful with other merchants. If he were
alive today he would be the first one
to recognize that the community your
store Is serving Is grently changed,
and that new methods must be adopted
to take advuntnge of new conditions.”
The toad-stone Is generally de
scribed as a species of black pebble
of no especial beauty as an ornament.
During the Dark ages, liowevef, It was
in great demand. It was supposed to
protect children from the molestation
of fairies and to cure kidney and stom
That a common toad wears a pre
cious Jewel In Its head was a profound
belief In the Middle ages. Its pos
sessor was supposed to be Immune
from toothache, so the legend runs,
and It was a sure antidote for poisons.
These creatures were said to forewarn
against venom by transmitting a
smarting sensation to the flesh. The
toad was credited with having a natu
ral fear and antipathy for man ns well
as for all venomous reptiles, hence its
We often hear that Peter Minuet in
1020 paid the Indians only $24 for
Manhattan island. We are apt to
Link of this as a ridiculously small
mm for what is today the most val
jnhle piece of land of its size in the
world; hut we do not stop to think
hat if this original $24 had been in
vested by Peter Minuet at the rate of
r per cent per annum and compound
'd every six months to date, it would
nive earned a sum equivalent to the
issessed value of the entire city of
Ww York, so it Is said, including its
streets, sewers, railways, subways,
heaters, hotels, skyscrapers and pa
atial homes.—Thrift Magazine.
