. Mrs. Rosebraugh has altogether
more than a hundred different
varieties of gladioli, which this
year began to bloom "on June 25.
They will continue : in season
through the summer till frost.
Monte Brecia is used for the most
part In. the planting as a border
to keep down the growth of the

ed her varieties largely from Die

Indiana, both famous producers.
It was Kundard who originated
the ruffled-corolla varieties. .
1 Especially distinctive among the
bulbs .now . In bloom is Purple
Glory, of a deep royal shade. One
of the choicest of th4 varieties is
Golden Measure, the stalks all
thickly set with deep, creamy cor
ollas. Rouge Torch is one of the
most interestingly marked. The
Evelyn Kirkland, with pink
blooms, carries streaked corollas.

Mrs. Rosebraugh has grown
most of her gladioli from the tiny
bulblets, the strength of the bulbs
depending largely upon the regu
lar cutting away of the flowers
before they fade on the stalk.

The pineal gland, described by the
defense; as having calcified at a

Dr. Church admitted that j the
present! ages of Loeb and Leopold
are within the 'trying period of a
young, j man's life." and that no
doctor jnor teacher could examine
youths -of their age without taking
that into consideration. The state
alienist further agreed with the
presentation of the defense alien
ists claims of mental sickness in

if Loeb's phantasy of being a de
tective had lasted from childhood
into young manhood, it would be
"abnorjmal." V '
