Bulbs for Spring Planting
ULBS MAY NOT liao been
devised to meet the needs of
lazy gnrden-makers, but it is
certain that no other class of
llowers can be raised with so
little effort. One merely de
posits the Imlb at tho proper
depth in good soil and waits
in liel exKetatinu until the stalks
grow and the llowers unfold. Of course,
ono can do more; a little extra care will
result in larger nnd liner llowers, espe
cially with such tubers as the dahlia,
which always likes encouragement.
Tho popularity of the dahlia has
grown with leaps and bounds. It is
grown everywhere now, and has been im
proved and made over until there are
half a dozen types and hundreds of va
rieties. )alilias may be grown from
seed with fair prospects of llowers the
first year; but the common practice is
to set out tubers in late May or early
.lime. The ground may well bo enriched
wild a little well-rotted stable manure,
nr with pulverized sheep manure an
excellent fertilizer, by the way, which
may be bought in small quantities at
the seed stores.
(iladioli should go into the ground
every two weeks from the llrst of May
until the first of July in order to have a
steady crop of llowers. They like a
rather rich soil, but will grow and bloom
satisfactorily in any gnrden. When
planted for effect, tho plants should
stand four to six inches apart ; but when
A farmer friend has just presented
our fninily with a gourd dipper that has
a knot in its handle by which ono may
hang it on a hook or nail. The knot was
literally grown there, as the string was
slipped on to tho gourd when the latter
had newly appeared on the vine. The
tying did not seem to retard the growth
of tho gourd, beyond causing it to pro
duce more neck than it would otherwise
have done. Certainly it renders tho dip
per much more useful, and the oddity
of it will cause it to bo preserved for a
long time. L. M. C, Hirininghani, Ala.
I had such fine tomato plants Inst
year Unit I want others to know my
method of starting them. Small turnips
were scooped out, leaving a thick shell,
which was filled with rich soil. The seed
was planted in this, and when trans
planted the turnips were placed in the
ground without disturbing the roots of
tho young plants. Tho shells thou made
good fertilizer for the tomato plants,
which thrived unusually well and formed
a fine, stocky growth. P. 1C, Tndianap-
olis, I ml.
A very simple and effectivo cure for
poisoning from sumac, poison ivy, or
poison oak is obtained from lioracie acid.
Unng a solution of tho acid to the boil
ing point. Wring woolen cloths out of it
nnd lay upon the affected part as hot
as can lie borne, covering with nnother
woolen cloth to keep in tho heat. When
cool, repeat. Keep this up for twenty
minutes; then, wnit two hours and re
peat ngain. This helped my husband in
a very severo caso when everything elso
had failed, and the second day wo were
obliged to use it only three times. It
does not burn as might be expected, but
stops both the burning and the itching,
and is very soothing. I. B. M., Pasa
I havo found a very satisfactory way
of holding potted plants along porch
rails so that there is no danger of their
falling off, and so that the water will not
drip down on the porch. Take a piece
of wire about the weight and length of
wire used for croquet sets. Bend tho
two ends of tho wiro under tho porch
rail for about threo inches. Then, bring
the wire up and over the porch rail and
form a loop projecting out from the
porch. Into the loop set the flower pot,
which will bo held securely. Of course
tho loop mny bo made larger or smaller
for pots of different sizes. Miss A. L.

grown for cutting, they are better in j
rows a foot apart, so that they may be i
cultivated easily. Manure water once a
week helps them along.
Mutitbretias, handsome flowers which 1
resemblo gladioli, should be grown in
masses. Among the good varieties are
Qermaiiiu, Ktoile de Ten and Itnvon d'Or.
Unlike gladioli and dahlias, the bulbs do
not need to bo lifted. With a light cover
ing of leaves, tho plants will survive the
winter and continue to bloom year after
Many of the lilies are best planted in
the Spring. They like a sandy soil, and
if such is not available, the bulbs may
bo deceived by digging a hole and filling
it with sand before planting. Lilies
need to be set deeply from eight to
twelve inches and about a foot apart.
It is best to start Tuberous rooted
begonia in the house in March or April,
and to plant them out about the end of
May. Although they do not pine for
the sun, they are exacting as to soil,
which must bo very rich and moist. Main
soils are improved by spading in sand
and old cow manure or pulverized sheep
manure, nnd plenty of water should be
given throughout the summer.
Tuberoses usually are set out about
tho middle of May, but will llower much
earlier if started in tho house in March
and set out Into in May. Liquid pulver
ized sheep manure onco a week will push
before they fade, give
freelv after midsummer
and remove a
part of tho plant with the blossoms after
the season is well advanced.
Almost any kind of bright wood ber
ries may be preserved for decorative use
in the house by dipping them in melted i
parallin and putting away in a cool j
place until needed. Treated in this way.
they will retain their brightness and
shape for months and will make an ef
fective decoration. I?. K., Jnnesville,
To prevent the soil from forming a i
crust on the top of flower pots, as it
tends to do, thus preventing the seeds or I
plants from thriving well, sprinkle a tluu
layer of white sand over the soil where ,
ever there aro seeds. This also helps to ,
retain the moisture. 1. S., Madison,
If tho garden-maker wants to keep ,
close track of plants, shrubs and trees,
he should carefully label them. Labels
mado from zinc cut into strips are per
manent, and tho name of the variety will
not lie ruhiied oil it written with an
ordinary lead pencil.
When cut worms feast on the aspar
agus, plant lettuce among the plants.
Tho worms will usually not molest the
usparagus so long as tho lettuce holds
out. This may seem like compromising
with tho pest, but it is sometimes worth
If tho sprinkling can is found to leak
just when you want to uso it, tho annoy
ance will bo great. Keep a little solder
on hand, but in an emergency use soap
for a makeshift.
Instead of pulling lettuco up by the
root, cut it off above ground. It will
grow tho second time. Miss M. M.,
Often, in baking applo pie the juice
runs out and leaves the pio dry. This
can 1h remedied by stewing the apple
skins with a little sugar and pouring the
syrup obtained from this over tho pio
If you want to utilize left-over boiled
potatoes, cut them up, add a slice of bread
cut into dice, and fry all together. Tho
resulting dish is delicious, nnd helps to
make a few potatoes ' ' go around. ' '
To remove ink stains from the handa:
Rub tho inner surface of a bannna peeling
vigorously over tho ink spots, for a few
minutes, and no trace of tho ink will remain.-
