In these words John F. Mclntyre, chief counsel [or Police Lieutenant Chiis. Heelier, on trial for the murder of Herman Uoscnthal, the gambler, today sounded the keynote of an appeal to the jurors to acquit his client, of the murder, lie told the jurors that In the first place they must find before convicting Becker that the four gunmen were guilty of killing, "otherwise the case will fall." Rose could not he helievod, he charg- ed, because he was testifying to save his own life. Sam Scheppa, "Bridgie" Webber and Harry Vallon he denounc- ed as "murderers with the same ob- ject in view." He attacked the credi- bility of the state's corroborating wit- nesses, Ltiban and Kallend, and charg- es that the district attorney "actuated had "fathered a pross- cu'don framed up by crooks." Becker sat with closed eyes during t.ho ad- dress. His wife wept. The state sums up this afternoon. OLD TIME PRESBYTERIAN CLERGYMAN DEAf Hamilton, Ont., Oct. G.

With it a hedge that formerly required five hours to trim can be clipped in cue hour, or one man can do the work of five. This ap- paratus consists of a long rod with a shoulder piece at one end and a pair of shears at the other. Along this rod is a drlvewheel connecting with the rotary pinion, which operates tlie crunk controlling shears. The de- Tlce is hold against the shoulder, by means of u handle iu the middle. Then the. drivewheel is turned, and by means of the multiple gearing it opens and closes the shears five times with each revolution, thus making the ap- paratus a saver of 80 per cent, in eith- er timo or labor. AH the operator has to do is to keep turning the wheel and moving the shears along tho hedgerow where it needs clipping. A Foreboding Fulfilled PLAN FOR TRAINING TOMATOES Plants Grow Through the Frame and Frutt Is Kept from Ground and in Clusters. A practical method of training toma- toes and keeping them from the ground and in clusters is herewith given. Set plants in straight row. When they are 12 to 14 inches high drive stakes each side about S feet apart. Nail oil A Tomato Stand. slats top of stakes, stretch any old woven wire fencing over the top. The plants will go through them, BO your fruit will be off the ground and hang in. clusters. You can prune them handily. No strings to UEQ, no sun- baked tomatoes. Must Watch the Crop. In order to determine what elements of plant food are deficient In a soil, it ia necessary to carefully study the "rowing crop. Many farmers seem to be of the opinion that a chemical an- alysis of the soil will show the amount of plant food contained there- iu. This however, is a mistaken idea. The chemist can only determine ap- proximately the amount of nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash in soil, without specifically showing what pro- portion of these elements can be falcon up by the growing plant. A large per- centage of these elements is not avail- ible to plant food. Hence the neces- sity for them in an available form. Wo Bust turn, then, to the crop, anil by watching it closely during Us growth ind by a careful examination when uatured, see whether the soil is tlcfl- ient In plant food and what el amenta iro lacking. FACTS ABOUT CENTURY PLANT Blooms Once In Hundred Years, or Any Other Time, and Then With- ers Away. "The century plant, sr -named be- cause of the popular that it tilooms but once In 300 years, In one sense malies good its name, for it blonms only once, then said H. F. Wnrron of Los Angeles, Cal. He continued: "In tbe genial climate of southern California It reaches maturity and blooms In 15 or 20 years, while In cooler climates the period may range from 40 to 50 years. There are many species of the agave family native to northern Mexico, where it Is called the maguey. Tho plant, furnishes the national drink of Mex- ico. "At the time of tbe blooming tho plant throws up a single stalk of rapid growth to tije" height of 12 to 20 feet, from which tho tassel-like flowers sprout forth. This sreat flower atalk draws all the sap and vigor from the hoJy of the plant, which noon withers and dies. At the base of the thick green leaven are found little suckers, each with a root, which, when planted, at once begin to grow. The edge and end of the leaves are well armed with stiff, sharp million, the prick of A'blch Is very painful. This ia mr ture's way of protecting the plant fcgin the nkYiiztt sleeping car approaching Chicago from the south on au April nioralni.
