Outdoor Flower Boxes.

One "of the important end of

, thing that ia Wanted, not only the
aort of thing that ia fun to do. By

wishing that in the spring that they
had, arranged some flower boxes
. and planted them. Don't wait for
the time of regrets. Get after'those
boxes now. It will soon be time to
let out the plants.
First of all, pick the place for the
. flower boxes, where they will have
'some sun, but not all day long.
,Make sure that the rain will strike
them. Do not build under an over
banging rpof. .
The boxes should be built of pine
boards, 'and should run from 10 to
1 11 inches wide and 8 inches deep. If
, .to be used permanently, line them
With galvanized line with one or
,two drains in the bottom. Fill them
(with the richest top loam, that you
' .!.ean find. -
4 A model for a .rather faacy box to
rest tfn a oorch buttress is shown in
the drawings. The board (C) that
.forms its bottom is the' same width
- as the top, but the sides (B) are
; drawn in at the Jjotiom so as to
show one or two inches of the bot
'tom board outside. ' The end pieces
(A) are cut out to match the slant
'of the sides and tnen to return to
,the width of the bottom. A flat
ledge (D), which should be 2 to 3
inches wide, is nailed to the top
' '' edges of the box. The corners
tiltould be mitred. When the box has
been placed in position on the but
' tress, nail through the bottom board
; to the buttress so that it cannot be
pushed off. V .

(Tomrrow Spring Fever.
For Boy end
Boil Water Without a Pot. '
It' a useful thing to know how
to make fire without matches, but
it's not often that a - fellow finds
himself without matches not if he's
got any sense. A box of matches; in
a waterproof case, is easy enough
to carry. But it ooes happen mat
a fellovout hiking, hunting roots
of spring flowers or the like, wants
a hot drink in the middle of the. day
and isn't toting a saucepan along.
The Indians of the Canadian tor-
ests have a trick of using birch
bark kettles. It r doesn't sound
reasonable, especially, wnen one
knows how quick a fire a birch bark
makes, but, as a matter of fact, a
birch bark kettle isn't so hard to
make." A good sheet of birch bark,
free from knots, can be bent at the
ends into a shallow trough and
filled with water. Let the hardwood
fire burn down until there are only
hot coals, and set the birch-bark
kettle on the fire, being careful that
the coal doesn't actually touch the
bark, and that any little names don t
strike the. birch-bark above 'the level
of the prater. This doesn't take
any great amount of woods skill,
and, for a noon-day halt, it is quick;
It's worm the trouble, sometimes,
to make the cornucopia style of
birch-bark kettle, twisting a piece
of ' birch bark ftnd fastening the
edges with pins or thorns. Ihe In
dian can make this water-tight with
resin, but it's a trick beyond most
of us. A dab or, two of resin will
help, but the cornucopia plan is bet
ter for a stew oot.
After it is roughly made, built a
biff fire, and heat some stones which
have been arranged in the form of
a little .square enclosure. Then, to
stew your meat, or whatever it may
be you want to cook, put the birch
bark steVv-pot into this enclosure.
The embers will keep the stones
hot for several hours and the stones
will keep the embers fom being
cooled by the wind. Between the
two, a reasonable stew can be made,
which will be cooked on the return
to camp. Remember, in all early
spring hiking or camping, be sure
of a hot sweet drink at, every halt

Do t Our Eye "Sparkla" When
We Are Happy? ,
(Copyright. 1I0 by The Whttln '
The term "sparkling," as gen
erally employed, is equivalent to
"bright" or "glistening,'? and the
latter synonym provide the key
to the question as to why peo
ple' eyes sparkle when they are
' There is . some nervous reac
tion between the feeling of mer
riment or joy, which makes one's
eyelids-move up and down more
rapidly than usual. This move
ment of the eyelids causes a tiny
drop of tear-liquid to spread over
the ball of the eye, precisely
what occurs every time we
wink, - thus washing the eyeball
clean and leaving upon it a film
of moisture which naturally
glistens or sparkles in the light.
The statement that a person's
"eyes sparkle" Is, therefore, not
strictly true. It is not the ,eye,
but the coating of liquid over,
it, which causes" the reflection
of, light and "produces the im
pression of brightness.

Tokio Stock Exchange
Closed for Three Days
'. Washington, April 20.-The Amer
ican embassy at Tokio reported to
the State department under date of
last Saturday that the principal stock
exchanges of Japan had been closed
for three day because of failure of
operators to put up additional mar-:
gins. - "
The report added that the Tokio
Stock exchange stock, regarded as a
barometer of conditions', had dropped
from 470 to 260 within the last 30
day and that there had been some
stringency in the money market.
.Unionism in labor is growing in
Japan, although it has not been
commensurate with the development
of industry there which has grown
to 25,000 mills and factories, with
2,000,000 workers. Thirty-six years
ago there were only 125 modern fac
