Williamson reported today that the treasure he believes is aboard the sunken "Santa Rosa" Is protected by coral more unyielding than the weather or the gimrdlni; spirit of MonlcMima. Ordinary pneumatic Imnuneis failed to bile Into Ihe crust .iur- rounding Ihe Spanish galleon's hulk, he suid, and It was necessary tuiu lo shore for larger and heavier tools, lie planned to resume the assault on the barrier later lodny. Returning to (he vessel, which may have been bearing gold now worth S30.000.tmo when it sank In 1520, Williamson yesterday inspected all sides or Ihc hulk. In hope of finding an easy way of entrance. He decided that the narrow p.\ssnne- way found earlier was the best, but must be enlarged for safety's sake. A dead calm that lasted" for an hour shortly after midnight brought divers out of (heir bunks and down Into the water, but their tools were of no avail against 400 years' growli of coral. Williamson also said that his attorneys In Washington were .-.(ill seeking the Slate Department'!, view of reports that Mexico mas- ask that any treasure be Impounded until I Us legal ownership Is determined.

Snap beans rank \vith carrots and tomatoes as the big three among home finrdcn vegetables, which every garden should grow. They should never be sown until the ground warms up, because they will not germinate iti cold soil. Frost kills the younij plants, nnd cold winds may check their growth. But sown in warm soil, they grow vigorous and quickly, the earliest bush varieties reaching table size in seven weeks. Because the seed pods arc calcn. Ibis is one of Ihe efficient vegetables, producing heavily for the space they occupy. There are four general types of Inish benns, the green and wax (yellow) each divided into flat pod and round pod. Market beans arc ' usually flat pod, which yield better than the round pod: and the latter have the best quality. Between the green and wax beans there are slight differences in vitamin content, the former excelling ill vitamin A. ihc latter in vitamin B, but both arc among our most nutritious foods. In recent years few wax bc;ms have been seen in markets; but ill the opinion of many they arc more tender and of belter flavor than green beans. Bush beans should not be allowed to form seeds, 'limy ure ut the height of flavor and tenderness from the lime they have just begun to form, until they begin to make seeds; nnd they deteriorate somewhat after that. Both for the table and for canning they should be picked before seeds form, and not more than an hour before they are cooked. If bean plants arc kept picked clean, they will continue to bear nil summer, producing several crops, as long as the plants are healthy. But since Ihe first crop is always the largest, it is advisable lo make several sowings in succession, • so that new plants keep coming into bearing. It may be advisable to estimate your canning needs and sow a special row for pulling up. so they can be harvested for that purpose. But always be ready lo put up a few jars at a time, when there are more beans on the bushes than you need for the table. In sections where leaf hoppers ii.fest the bean plants, D.D.T. dust will be found an eflicient protection against Ihis pest, which saps the strength of the ptnnts. The Mexican bean beetle, however, is one o( Ihc few insects which D.D.T. does not hill and where it is prevalent roteiioiie dust should bs usej.
