GOVERNMENT WAS WORSTED
In the Building Rented for Use as
an Executive Mansion.
Washington July 10. It de-
veloped today that the government
got the worst end of a real estate
land rental bargain when the tem
porary White House was recently
rented for the use of the president.
On authority of cabinet officers it
is stated that the building is un-
sanitary tbat the plaster is ready
to fall from the ceiling and that
it is almost untenable. The presi-
dent as soon us he discovered its
condition refesed to stay longer in
the place and accordingly took up
his summer residence at Oyster
Bay. The improvements on the
White House will be rushed and
1 the building made ready for oc-
cupaucy bv the president when he
returns to Washington in October.
In the meantime the clerical force
in charge at the temporary White
House have been instructed not to
speud any of the government's
money in making repairs. Post.

WILL TRY QUAIL RAISING.
pAih Indiana Farmer.Has Arranged
to Devote His Farm to It.
Harley Smith a wealthy . farmer
living near Portland Ind. has
found a new avenue for his en-
terprise and his farm of 400 acres
is to I.h :iveu uver in the near
future entirely to raising quail.
He has been experimenting for the
l'al three years aud has come to
the conclusion that quail can be
domesticated and can be made de-
cidedly more profitable than any
other kind of fowls both on ac-
count af the rapidity with which
they multiply and the little trouble
and expense ir will require to pre-
pare them for market.
As a means uf starting his new
industry he has not permitted a
gun to be fired on his land for four
years and has seen the good re-
sults of this policy in the gradual
tamiug of the quail till now they
will come aronud his barnyard und
eat with the' chickeus. He says
there is a marked difference in the
coveys out in the fields und near
the house for wllen they are ap-
proached in the fields they appear
to be very wildj but iu the barn-
yard they come about him and
pick up the grain and appear to
have lost all their wild nature.
This applies to the birds that live
out in the fields and that he terms
wild but the experiments with one
brood which he raised by setting
the eggs under a hen and bringing
them up with the barnyard fowls
have convinced him they may be
as completely domesticated as chick-
ens and ducks and he has decided
to enter the business on a scale
that will test its practicability and
prove whether there is really any
money in it.
In order to do this he willsecure
the eggs of the quail on his place
this summer and hatch them in an
incubator and thus begin the
domesticition at once and
before the birds Lave become
wild. He will keep females
for future broods and sell only
a part of the males and he
hoped to have not fewer than 1500
egg-producing birds when theseas-
ou of 1903 opens. These broods
will be raised for market but the
stock will gradually be increased
if the results are satisfactory and
iu time he will give his entire time
to the industry.
have investigated the subject
thorough ly" said he recently
"and am convinced that there is
more money in a good quail farm
thau there is in cultivating the or-
dinary crops. The broods average
'anywhere from twenty to thirty
the birds are easily raised and
there tis always a greater de-
mand than supply. Iamin direct
communication with the markets
of Chicago Indianapolis Cincin-
nati and many jther cities and it
the domesticated birds can be sold
when the wild birds are out of sea-
son I can get a much better price
thau is paid now. I find that the -dojuesticated
bird is larger also
than the wild bird and this will be
in my favor. I believe I can have
2000 or 2500 ready for market in
January 1903 and lean more than
double that amount by another
