SWEET POTATO CROP
THREATENED BY WEEVIL
Now it is the sweet potato crop of
Florida that is threatened with de devastation

structive destructive insect pest. The sweet potato
root weevil has been found to occur
in four widely separated areas in the
state and in each locality where it has
been established for three years or
more.it has made the profitable cul
ture of the sweet potato impossible.
In fact, in the infested localities the
f Ermer finds it impossible to raise
even enough sweet potatoes for the
use of his family.
This menace is bein? regarded with
the gravest concern by the state plant J him a valuable acquisition to any in inboard

cipal principal food supply: The adoption, by
the government, of the sweet potato
as one of the regular articles in the
menu of our troops also makes the
preservation and increase of the sweet
potato crop one of the most important
steps in the national defense.
The pest is not new to the southern
states, having been known in the
southern portion of Louisiana for the
past twenty years. Experience in that
state and in Texas has shown that at
all infested points within sixty or
seventy miles of the gulf coast the
pest continues to destroy practically
the entire sweet potato crop year
after year. No satisfactory measures
of controlling it have been found.
There are also infested areas of
greater or less extent in Mississippi,
Alabama and Georgia and the cest is
evidently very abundant in Cuba
State Plant Commissioner William
Newell has been active for several
months, investigating the extent of
the infested areas in Florida, the

ment, department, to finish the work. The con contractor
tractor contractor made a very good job of it un until
til until the work was nearly complete and
then jseemed unable to do the compar
atively easy but very important work
of bringing all the parts together. It
is not exactly understood what the
trouble is, but it is probable that he
was unable to obtain competent work-
Imen. The firms that put in the var-
ious units, tne steam engine, on en engine,
gine, engine, pumps, switchboard, etc., sent
their own skilled men here, but the
outbreak of the war seems to have
made it difficult for Mr. Thompson to
secure men of the required skill just
at this time. He seems to have tried
to do the right thing, but circum
stances have been against him. Mr.
Caldwell is a skilled mechanic and well
acquainted with every line of the
work, the plant has been built under
his eye and he knows just what is
needed. Me is confident that he will
have ; the work complete, in a very
short time. The city will not. lose
any money, and it is probable that
the contractor will lose little if any.
lhe greatest harm done has been the
delay,-which has been annoying, but
not vital. The city is obtaining very
good service from tne plant as it is.
Among its advantages is the most
powerful water pressure in the state,
and the few disadvantages due to in
completeness will soon be remedied.

When Brodie Bluffed Mitchell.
Once when in England Steve Brodie.
the famous bridge jumper, was in a
party which included Charlie Mitchell,
the prizefighter. .Mitchell made some
remarks derogatory to John L. Sullivan,
to which Brodie rejoined with some
sarcastic observations on the sprinting
ability Mitchell displayed while in the
ring with Sullivan. This angered the
prizetighter. who knocked Brodie flat.
As he scrambled to his feet Mitchell
made another rush at him, but by then
Brodie had a pistol in his hand and,
thrusting it under his assailant's nose,
remarked: "You think you're goin to
make a reputation on lickin' Steve Bro Brodie,
die, Brodie, don't you? Well, you Just hit me
once and there'll be a lot In the papers
about it, but you won't read it." That

MEANING OF HORSEPOWER.
And How Parson In Lifting Weight
May Expend That Fore.
.It has been estimated that to lift 550
pounds one foot In one second requires
what Is known as one horsepower.
Similarly a horsepower Is able to raise
twice that weight one foot In twice the
time' or one-half foot in Just that time.
Moreover, It can raise half 550 pounds
one foot In half a second or two feet in
a second, and so on. Therefore, if
you lift one-quarter of that weight,
137 pounds, four feet In one second
you are exerting a horsepower.
-Accordingly, when a person who
weighs 137 pounds runs upstairs at
the rate of four feet a second he is ex
erting the equivalent of a horsepower.
For a man weighing twice that much,
275 pounds, It would be necessary to
climb at the rate of only two feet a
second- to exert a horsepower.
It Is possible to do much more. As a
matter of fact, a horse often exerts
many times a horsepower. The aver
age horse can draw a wagon up a hiil
.where a ten horsepower engine with
the same load would fail, A horse
power does not represent the greatest
momentary strength of the average
horse, but is a measure of the power
which he can exert continuously.
At the late date of 1S27 a wish ex
pressed by General Washington in his
will was obeyed. He had called at
tention to his selection of a spot for
a new tomb for himself and family
and those of the family already burled
in the old vault. The bid tomb was
dlsadvantageously situated on the side
of a hill which was subject to land
slides. For "the new vault he specified
not only the spot, but also dimensions
and materials. According to .these, his
own plans, a tomb was built, and his
and Mrs. Washington's bodies' were
transferred to it, along with the re remains
