they are bringing a good price. In
fact, more garden, orchard and gen

place for such gatherings. Mrs. Sadie

fectionate attentions from her 29
children and grandchildren, all of
whom were present. The day was
spent in boating, fishing, swimming,
pleasant conversation, and last, but
by no means least, in partaking of
the sumptuous picnic and barbecue
dinner which was served on the long
table under the shade of the trees.
As the afternoon waned all were re
luctant to approach the end of a
"perfect day," when good-byes had
to be said, but will look forward with

Plant a Fall Garden. ,
Clemson College, Aug. 14.-A
small amount of time and labor ex
pended in the preparation and plant
ing of a fall garden will bring val
uable returns. Aside from the pleas
ure of having fresh vegetables for
the table during the "dry" winter
months, the financial saving is wor
thy of consideration. Following is a
list of vegetables suggested by the
Horticultural Division that may be
included in the fall garden:
Beet.-Sow best seed the first
part of September. The plants will
stand the winter and produce beets
for early spring use.
Cabbage.-Good plants of the
Wakefield varieties if set now will
form heads before cold weather.
With slight protection, both cabbage
and collards will carry through our
Kale.-Seed sown during Septem
ber will produce an abundance of
greens during winter and early
spring. Siberian curled is a good fall
Lettuce.-Sow Big Boston variety
for a supply of delightful salad dur
ing fall and winter. With slight pro
tection firm heads can be produced.
Mustard.-Seed sown during Sep
tember will furnish greens through
out the ' fall, winter and early
Onions.-Sets of the White Pearl
variety will furnish bulbs and tops
during the winter and early spring.
Seeds may be sown from September
20 to October 10.
Garden Peas.-Plant during No
vember for the earliest spring peas.
Alaska is a good variety for fall
Radish.-Long White Spanish or
some of the other winter varieties
sown the last of September will re
main in good condition throughout
Rape-Though commonly sown
for pasturage, rape seed sown in
September will yield excellent winter
Spinach.-One of our most de
lightful vegetables. Seed sown the
last of September or the early part
of October will produce greens
throughout the winter until late
Turnips.-This is one of our re?
liable vegetables that will produce
roots and tops for winter and spring
use. Sow seed September 1 to 20.
Every farmer's garden should be
provided with cold frames and hot
beds. They are easily and cheaply
constructed and. serve as an impor
tant factor in keping up the supply
of vegetables during \he winter
It must be remembered that lt is
very necessary to conserve soil mois- ,
ture, and to have a good firm seed
bed. Small seed will come up much
better if packed by rolling the wheel
of a garden plow over them in such
a way as to press them into the soil.
