In speaking at grasses adopted to suc

"In general, because of the varied condi
tions of shade and moisture existing upon
a lawn as the result of trees, shrubs and
architectural objects, mixtures are more
desirable than pure grasses. The different
degrees of shade and moisture maintained
In the sell, which result from the presence
of trees, shrubs and buildings afford a
. variety af conditions under which a single
species would not produce a uniform lawn.
These obstructions to the sunlight produce
lights and shades In different parts of the
lawn, so that any difference which may ex
ist In the color of the various grasses In a
lawn mixture Is not so obtrusive as It
would an were different portions of the
area made up of grasses of different hues.
Even If there Is a variation In the tint of
the green In the different grasses used In a
lawn mixture, this will not be objectionable
unless the lawn becomes patched and made
up of one variety In one place and a dif
ferent variety In another.
"In procuring aeed for establishing a lawn
too great care cannot be exercised. Pure
seed, of high germination, la of great Im
portance In securing a good stand of grass.
Pure aeed Is the keynote to a clean lawn,
provided the work of preparing tha land
has been efficiently done. Thorough prep
aration Involves not merely the mechanical
treatment of tha soli to reduce it to a proper
eedbed, but the use of weed-free manure
and the adoption of a course of treatment
previous to preparing -fr the" lawn -'which
will aorve ta eradicate weeds. Euch prep
aration, eoualad with pure aeed, ahould give
a satisfactory stand of grass which shall
need only the usual care necessary ta main
tain a ' lawn after It Is once established.
Too much cannot be said In favor of secur
ing pure seed, and. If possible, specially se
lected seed. This is of considerable im
portance with light seeds like bluegrass,
red top and seeds of the bent grasses. In
the case of bluegrass, select aeed which
weighs about twenty-two pounds to the
bushel, while the ordinary grade of blue
grass, although it may be called pure, av
erages about twelve pounds tt the bushel.
Select or recleaned bluegrass Is, therefore.
the most economtoal to buy, although the
original cost is considerably more than that
ofthe common commercial article."

The National Council of Horticulture,
through Its press committee, discussing
good plants for a garden of annuals, says:
"Thero aire places around many home
that look dark and vacant all summer,
when at little expense they can be trans
formed Into places beautiful to look upon.
The easiest way to decorate these lone
some spots Is by growing some of the
easily cared for annuals.
"Of the tall-growing annual plants, the
cosmos, nlcotianas and cleomea are among
the most deservedly popular. The better
way to plant these Is between scattered
shrubbery, although they can be used In
beds. Cosmos blooms In the fall. It grows
gracefully to the height of flv feet,
spreading out rich, green feathery foliage
and bears an abundance of delicately col
ored single flowers on long sterna It Is
well suited for cutting. It may be planted
close to some unsightly building or fence
and will form an excellent screen, If
trained against a support. The young
growths should be pulled gently to the
supporting piece of wood' and fastened
with short pieces of rubber or cloth.
The nlcotianas are useful in obtaining
subtropical effects. Their rich foliage and
numerous sweet-scented tuberous flowers
make them vary decorative. Nicotlana
sylvestrl grow from four to five feet high
and bears great number of pure white
flower. Nicotlana sandora I three to
four feet high, with rich carmine flowers.

Davis, Insurance commissioner of
Nevada, whose defl to the. big insurance
companiea of New Tork earned-for him
the sobriquet, "The Sagebrush AJax." .Mr,
Davis Is a newspaper man first of all.
Offlceholding Is incidental to the profession
he adorns. He did considerable reportorial
work in the Missouri valley towns ta the
early '70s and swapped confidences .. and
copy with Dr. Miller when the Omnha Her

Mr. Perkins says, In part:
"Mr. Davis was born In Branford. Conn.,
In I860. He Is, as was the late Matthew
Stanley Quay and is the live E. H. Harrl
man, the son of an Episcopal clergyman.
Early In Ufa Mr. Davis manifested such
a sensational leaning toward Jocularity that
he was led from a theological school by
the ear. Subsequently he turned up at
Raclno university In the aame class with
Paul Morton, president of the Equitable.
Aa editor of the college paper In Racine,
Bam Davis got a taste for Journalism, and

of tho faculty after editing three numbers.

paring to remove his coat.
"Ah!" exclaimed Mr. Davis, rising and
extending his hand, "you are a man of
discernment. I should like to go Into part

ways an uncertainty, and it la a good idea
for us to split the purse. Give me fifty.

you must be a good man. Please accept
the political desk, Mr. Davis, I beg of
you!" exclaimed the city editor, bowing
with fine courtesy.
Bam Davis prided himself on his ability
to fill space whether anything Important
was happening or not. One day the owner
of the "Times" met him In the hall and
shook his hand warmly.
"Are you the man who manufacture
those bogus stories?" he asked.
"Oh, don't be embarrassed, young man.
They're grat. If you don't find news,
This approval turned the Journalst's head
and he went so far as to write a letter to
the proprietor In which he set forth the
fact that be was "worth more money than
he was being paid." In referring to It
Mr. Davlu remarked that it was the "best
fake he ever wrote but somehow or other
it didn't seem to catch on."
Sinking; m Stir on tho Coast.
From Chicago Mr. Davl drifted to Cal
ifornia and at once became Identified with
tha newspapers and magazines of San
Francisco. He joked with everybody and
wrote Action and biography so true to life
that much of it haa gone Into historical
worku subsequently published. Endowed
with tremendous energy and considerable
physical strength he was able to cope with
any and all condition of western society.

thi.t involved a 'capital .wveral thousand
tines greater than he was able to lay hi

to separate his serious hopes from his
piactical Jokes wa Davis himself.
He once made a wager that he could suc
cessfully imitate the style of any living or
cead poet and do it so thoroughly that the
difference 'was not discernible; and that the
public, the press and the critics would
not detect the fraud. As a result he wrote
"Blnley and 46," to which he signed F.
Bret Harte's name. The fake was put
out In a publication known aa "The Open

Another famous joke from Sam Diivl was
a yarn about a Nevada boy 'who was sup

haystack or a barn located at a distance of
one mile and, by focusing the sun's rays
in the retina of the said eye, produce a
conflagration In the said haystack or barn
with the same facility that one may make
flame from a burning glass. Mr. Davis used
hi mythical Incendiary in a speech In which
the boy was made to devastate the fiirmlng
districts because of his hatred for agri
cultural life. A sufficient air of verisimili
tude was given the story by Mr. Davis to
entice the San Francisco Academy cf Sci

and even arranged a number of attrac

When the company left Ban Francisco, and
farewells were being said, Bernhardt walked

"On the cheek," she exclaimed, with a

Some Kamoos Stories.
As a story-teller he is famous in the west.
He has written a great many short stories,

The other sale waa one by Henry Rleck,
of forty acre a half roll north of tho
