USE BASKET FOR GRANARY

Cailfornia, Use Big Rebeptacles
Made of Willow.
(By J. MAYNE, Baltimore.)
The Pima Indians of Mendocino
ounty, Cal., for many' generations
tored their winter provisions in large
illow baskets. It was the custom to
)iace the basket granaries up on a
high rude platform supported by
poles, easily reached by means of lad
Hundreds of bushels of acorns. be
ides corn and wheat were gathered
and housed in these granaries for use
taring the winter. IEach basket was
rovided with a portable lid or top.
Huge Basket Granary.
-'Usually these baskets were compara
tively not very large.
Recently, however, the Pima In
dians living near Ukiah wove an im
mense willow basket which Is a rec
ord-breaker for size. From the bot
tom to the rim the immense basket
sneasures 6 feet, while the outside'
,ircumforence covers 25 feet. The
>asket itself when empty weighs 250

weighs 75 additional pounds, making
total weight of .25 pounds.
When filled with acorns, grain, etc.,

MONEY IN CAULIFLOWER CROP
Little Chance for Success Unless
Planted Early, as Plant Needs
Cool AIr and Soil.
(Dy WILLIAM H. UNDTORWOOD.)
I have grown cauliflower for a num
ser of sears and have found it a very
profitae 'crop, as it brings a good
price in the iarket.
Soil that will produce cabbage Is
m ritable for cauliflower, provided it is
enriched with well rotted manure. The
manurg should be thoroughly mixed
with the soil and the ground put in the
best possible condition.
When thd seeds begIn to grow I
give the plants suflcient air to keep
them from rotting off. As soon as the
plants are large enough to handle I
take them up and transplant them
t~ two inches apart each way and keep
them well watered. I expose the
plants to the open air before time
to plant outdoors so as to harden
them. I find that few plants die when
treated hr this manner.
-Several hours before setting out I
give the plants a thorough soaking in
the hot bed. When ready to set the
plants I mark off the ground thr'ee
teet each way and set the plants some
what deeper than they grow in the
hot bed and press the earth firmly
As cauliflower requires a cool at
flAOsphere and a cool, moist soil, there
is little chance of success unless It- is
planted very early In order to come
on before the heat ot summer, or it
,may be planted late and come in dur
ing the cool weather of fall.
In cultivating I use a one-horse
cultivator twvice a week, goIng both
ways when the plants are small. When
they come to maturity and the flowers
appear, I cover the flowers with a lent

Planting the Garden.
In planting your garden bear in mind
that it costs no more to grow the.best
varieties of vegetables than it does to
grow poor ones, and this applies also
to all farm crops. It pays to be care

The new governor of a western
state has two sons. One is big and
husky like his father, but the other is

of lassitude and dudishness.
The two sons and the father were
in the library one night and the name
of a prizefight referee name into the
conversation. The 'rah-'rah boy had
been sitting by, twiddling his thumbs,
but his ears pricked up at the man's
name and he drawled: "I rather like
that chap. He's all right."
