GRASS GROWN WITHOUT SEED
Best Strains Have Been Developed by
Cutting Up Runners From Thrifty.
Many good turf grasses that repro
duce by runners have lost the habit
of producing seed, and for this reason
the United States Department of Agri
culture has been experimenting with
the vegetotlvo propagation of some of
the most satisfactory strains of bent
grasses. Better strains have been de
veloped by finding spots In lawns and
on golf courses where the turf was
particularly good, cutting up the run
ners and planting these cuttings In In
crease plots. Moat of this work has
been dono In northern states, although
some good strains of Bermuda grass
have been selected which give promise
of value In the South.
A number of commercial growers
have been working on these Improved
grasses and now have cuttings for sale.
However, It Is possible for a person
to Improve his own lawn or for n
golf club to Improve the turf on the
course by solcctlng spots whero the
grass is particularly good and growing
tho cut runners In rows in n garden or
field. When tho good strain lifts been
Increased sufllclently In this way the
old lawn or turf may be plowed ilp
and the new strain established.
POULTRY LITTER HELPS SOIL
8trnw Filled With Droppings Is One
of Most Valuable Fertilizers
Toultry litter, particularly straw
filled with droppings, is ono of tho
most valuable fertilizers for gardens
and small fruits. It is particularly
worth while where clay soils are to
bo worked, because In a fow seasons
tho nddltlon of this litter will com
pletely chnnge tho character of the
soil and give ono a rich, friable and
enslly worked soil cnpnblo of produc

the United States Department of Ag

in these meetings It hns been found
that these figures are of great Hcrvlco
In showing agricultural conditions of
the county In a concise and compre
hensive wny. In one Instance It was
found that about CI per cent of the
county's agricultural land was farmed
by tenants. Discussion brought out
the fact that the federal farm lonn
was practically unknown In the county
and plans were made to conduct a
campaign to bring the bcnellts of tho

this summer meal
A DISH of crisp, delicious Grape-Nuts, with cream
or milk (some berries or fresh fruit, too, if you
like) is cooling to serve, cooling to eat and cooling
to digest with a charm of flavor and goodness that
rouses appetite enthusiasm. No preparation, no
cooking no heating of the body afterward, as heavy,
starchy meals do but well-rounded nourishment
for every bodily need.
There's a noticeable feeling of lightness and com
fort after such a meal.
Try this way out of the heat, bother and uncertainty
that usually goes with the midsummer food problem.
