Dr. J. T. Wbittaker, ot Tyler, gives
the following list of apples, peaches,
etc.: Early Summer. Charlotten,
Early Harvest, Bed Astrakan and
Rod June are our best market apples
for June. Sweet Bough, Summer
Queen and Summer l'earmain are our
best apples. Fall Pipkin, Carter's
Blue, Bradford's Best, Shannon, New-
towu, Taunton, Pryor's Red, Shockly,
Black Warrior, Stevensous and Yates
are our best fall and winter apples.

ing well and producing tine crops in

Writing of horticulture in tho Sev-
enth Congressional district -Mr. J. W.
Stu benrau, of Mexia, says :
"Until receut years horticulture has
received but littlo attention, although
by nature, climate, condition, otc., a
kind providence has favored us
"Our average rainfall per annum is
a fraction over 48 inches, more than a
sufficiency to grow our different crops
of fruits and vegetables to great per-
"Unfortunately for us this large
rainfall is uot properly distributed
throughout tho growing season, so we
have at times too much and again not
enough rain to produce the best re-
sults. * * * Just so soon as wo learn
to catch and store up the large surp-
lus of our wet spells in great reser-
voirs to he used for irrigation of our
orchards and gardens during periods
of drouth, just that soon will we be
able to reach perfection in growing all
manner of fruits aud vegetables adapt-
ed to our climate. We have in this
part of Texas fewer insects to fight
than in any othor stato in the union.
* * * In the dry climate of Califoruia
the orchardisl, in order to grow any-
thing at all, is forced to irrigate.
They can by doing so order I ho rain
when it will do most good, and-this is
about the only reason they succeed in
beating Texas sometimes."
Tho writer is of the opinion that tho
day is not lar distant when many of
our orchards in Texas will be as regu-
larly irrigated, when occasion requir-
es, as it is now done in California and
Colorado. It would certainly add
largely to our profits.

The Story oI the Way In Which Man Ob-
tained the Wci d.
A11 ethnologist tolls mi interesting
story as to how tobacco was first ob-
tained by man, according to the tra
ditions of the Menominee Indians:
"One day the god hero, Manabozo,
was 011 a journey, when he perceived
a delightful odor. It seemed to come
from a crevice in the cliffs high up
on a mountainside. On going closei
he found a tavern, which was occu-
pied by a giant. In fact, the giant
was the tenant of the mountain, and
from the mouth of the cave a passage
led down into the very center of the
hill, where there was a large chamber.
Around tho chamlier were stacked
great quantities of bags filled with
curious dried leaves. From the leaves
proceeded the delicious fragrance.
"These leaves were tobacco. Once
a year, the giant explained, all of the
spirits came to the mountain for the
purpose of smoking this exquisite
weed. But it was not possible to give
any of it way,'' said the ethnologist.
"Nevertheless Manabozo watched for
an opportunity, and snatching up one
of the bags fled, closely pursued by
tho giant. Tho thief leaped from
peak to peak, but the giant, followed
so fast as to finally overtake him. So
Manabozo turned upon him, and up-
braiding him for his stinginess trans-
formed him into a grasshopper.
"That is the reason why tho grass-
hopper is always chewing tobacco.
Manabozo took the bagful of leaves
anil distributed tlu-m among his
friends, the ancestors of the Indians
of today. Since then they have had
the use and enjoyment of the plant.''
Why He Didn't
At the home of a popular girl in
Louisville a most uncomfortable half
hour was recently spent by a modest
youth who had called to see her. Tho
youth is noted for l>oth bashfulness
and nervousness. The night in ques-
tion he went with a friend to the
girl's house. Ib' took a comfortable
seat iu a large armchair, and, as was
his habit, soon began to nervously
poke his fingers iuto cracks and holes
of the ornamental part of the chair.
He shoved one finger into a hole in
this manner, but found to his dismay
that his knuckle refused positively to
come back through the hole.
The more the young man worked
to release his finger tin' harder it be-
came, as the finger became swollen.
The youth was too bashful to men-
tion the ridiculous predicament into
which he had gotten himself, but pa-
tiently bore the pain in silence. Ho
suffered untold agony for fear that
his friend would go before he re-
leased his finger. Finally the hostess
noticed his apparent uneasiness. The
youth with many blushes then told
the cause. It was not until half an
hour later that the bashful youth and
the chair palled company. The but-
ler finally succeeded in releasing the
finger with the aid of a hatchet and
chisel, but the handsome chair is a
thing of the past. — Louisville Courier-
Didn't tVmit That Kino.
A boy of 1- years, going to confes-
sion lately, revealed to his father con-
fessor that he had been guilty of turn-
ing "flimflams" 011 the previous Sun-
day. The father, desirous to award
a suitable penance, but ignorant of
the exact character of the offense,
inquired, "WThat are these flimflams,
my son!'' "I'll show you, father," said
the boy. And he jumped up from
his knees and turned a couple of
handsprings before the confessional
box, to the utter astonishment but
the secret amusement of the priest.
The next penitent in turn, who had
anxiously witnessed this strange per-
formance, was a stout, red faced,
middle aged woman, who knelt with
evident trepidation and stammered
out, "Och, father, dear, don't be giv-
in me such a Lenten piunanceusthnt,
