In England tomato plants have been
grafted on potato plants, giving a crop
of tomatoes above ground and potatoes
below. Potatoes grafted on tomatoes
have produced flowers, tomatoes and a
few tubers. An experiment In this
direction waa made during the past
season in Wisconsin. Two tubers were
planted in separate pots in March, and
when about 5 inches high the plant
waa cut off half an inch from the level
ot tbe soil and a graft of a tomato In
troduced. The result was that the
potato, nourished by the tomato plant
above ground, produced a crop of po
tatoes in tbe pot, and also the tomato
plant above ground produced a fairly
good crop of tomatoes, nourished by
the potato roots in tbe pot.

discussed in railroad cl roles the' past
week. The Kansas City surety com
pany, which furnishes bonds for all
tbe S. P. conductors, is said to be the
cause of the trouble, with which the
railroad company Itself is not interest
ed. The surety company' is an arbi
trary cold-blooded association, and one
of its 'spotters' checked up Jamleson's
train and reported two fares trom

Withdrew from bis bond and of course
the railroad company could not retain
according to, its rules a conductor who

Jamlssons numerous friends maintain
that if he were given a hearing he
could easily vindicate himself. Con
