Tlio following timely articlo la
from the Sunday Orogonlnn of tlio
14th, and 1b by a woll known rose
When moHt othor summer flowers
nre pant and gone, and. when the
woods have already donned their
autumn tints, wo enn stilt tlinnkM to
the persistent efforts and 9 i of the
hybridizer, enjoy beautiful roses In
our 'gardens. For more than 100
yearn many noted Introducers and
ralseis of now varieties have devoted
time and skill to produce loses that
embrace the most Impoitaut chara
t'erlstli.' of giving us their flowers In
the autumn. Previous to the Intro
duction Into Huropo of the Chinese
roso (rosa liullca) towards tho (dose
of the eighteenth century tho only
roses obtainable In Hiirnpe, with few
and iinlmpurtaut exceptions, were
essentially summer-blooming vurle
lies. Orndually as years 'moved on, by
selection and hybrldutlon the trait
has been developed and established,
so that at. the present day a very
large selection of varieties can be
made, that with proper treatment
may be depended upon, to give us a
supply of these delicate and rich
colored blooms In the autumn.
Yes, even as late as Christmas we
can occasionally cut a few perfect
.blooms of such varieties as (Ihilre
do Dijon, La r-'ranco, Testout, Papa
(loutler and a few others.
Ho much attention has of late been
devoted to the Introduction and
growth of fall-blooming roses that
the National' Hose society of Kng
land has for some years past held
an annual show In September, and
that month now shares with May and
.litno the pioud distinction of being
a "month of roses."
I hnpo the litno may come with us
when tho rose amateurs of this beau
tiful Hose City, and In fad, or the
Pacific, northwest In general, may
have, a "roso day" In September as
well as In May or June,, We can
not, of coins!', expect to have such a
profusion and wealth of bloom, biit
with a judicious selection of varie
ties and a little care and attention
to cultivation the beantly of our
gardens can be prolonged and main
tained i nl II tin cold, hlool; winds

Tt the limits of this article It Is
not feasible to enter fully Into the
subject of cultivation for fall bloom
ing, because overy phase of tho sub
ject applies and leads up to the re
sult, wo desire. I will therefore as
sume that the plants have been
properly mulched In tho previous
late autumn or early winter, with
good rich manure. Also that winter
pruning has been attended to, and
that the, bushes have been brought
through their summer blooming In
a satisfactory condition.
We will now take hold of them
for fall blooms. While the forego
ing list of varieties (and many
others) are good autumnal bloom
ei'S, and while they can under ordi
nary conditions be depended upon
to supply more or less late flownra,
a grmt deal can be done to assist
nature so that we may enjoy In
greater profusion and perfection tho
properly developed charms of these
favorites of autumn. One of tho
lirst considerations and pcrhapB the
most Important Is to glvo the bushes
a period of rest after they have fin
ished their summer (lowering. In
our climate water should be with
held throughout July, giving only
mi (Helen' moisture at the roots to
keep the plants from sulTeiiug.
This will tend to ripen and mature
the wood that has been made In the
early spring and summer growth.
Kurly In August when the wood has
ripened, all weak shoots must lie ju
diciously thinned out and tho
healthy and vigorous one moderate
ly shortened. Tho bush should nt
the same time, lie nicely shaped up
for Its second growth. Special at
tention should now lie given to In
duct and encourage this second
growth. II Is upon the young shoot,
now produced that wo get our llnest
blooms, later. Therefore, keep the
ground lu your rose'beds and around
your Individual specimens loosiw and
pliable by continual cultivation with
the hoe. Liberal watorlng occa
sionally at tho roots Is now essential
If you can apply this lu tho form of
weak ltttuld inuuure so much the
heller. If this Is not practicable
mulch nround the bushes a sprink
ling of bone meal, guano or other
fertilizer, and lightly hoe lu mid
ink with the surface soil. Tho water
you apply will cany It to the roots.
Tho foregoing attention to and culti
vation of your plants should be per
sisted lu us If summer Instead of
autumn was approaching. Your re

with Greece somewhat closer and
service has not been made. We must
candidly admit that at certain times
during tho past three or four months
the supply has not been what our
customers hnve a right to expect,
but It Is not due to an Inadequate
plant nor Inefficient conduct of any
of the plants of the company, but
due to reasons absolutely beyond
our control.
Since the fire we have expended
over $1,000,000 In the rehabilita
tion of both our gas and electric In
stallations, and are continually us
ing every means In our power and
known science to correct the faults

that tho center of distribution of
both gas and electric services were,
by the exigencies of the occasion
lifted, as It were, In one night from
Kearny ami Market to practically
Fillmore and O'Fnrrell. It would be
seen that human Ingenuity had big
problems confronting It to devise
ways and means to properly -supply
such a new nnd milckly hitlhled
district. The electric mains of the
these just one Is absolutely fire
proof. That one was built In Chi
cago by the great Insurance compan
ies for a testing laboratory. There
are only four thousand buildings
about one in three thousand that

these can be damaged In a conflagra

per cent of their value. Yet the un

cent more than a building that ould

advancing fire.
In 1905, which was a "normal
year," wo spent $50,000,000 for
new buildings and burned old ones
to the value of $200,000,000. We
paid $300,000,000 for fighting fire
and $195,000,00 In fire Insurance
premiums, of which we got back
$95,000,000 from the companies In
payments for losses.
