GARDEN ADVICE GIVEN BY
THE CITY GARDEN DIRECTOR
Mr. C. P. Dleterich Has Something ot
Interest to all Gardeners In Itc.
enrd to Their Crops.
Mr. C. P. Dleterich, City Garden Ad-
viBor, yesterday Issued the following
bit of timely advice to war gardeners:
The prolonged drouth has injured
the growing crops but as we are hav
ing rain now, we hope for a better
season from now on. ,
The be'uns that have dropped their
blossoms should bo left as they will-
send up more, blossoms and will pro
duce beans later.
Turnip and kale Beed may still be
sowed as the fly and drought has de
stroyed the early planting. Lettuce
for fall use may be sown now.
Your early potatoes had better be
dug as they will make a second
growth if left in the ground. Store
them In a cool dark cellar and do
not waste them, for potatoes have
been damaged in some sections and
prices will be high during the win
ter. The small ones can lie used by
boiling them as the skins will come
off readily and It will be best to use
the small ones first and the larger
It Is to be hoped all gardeners have
taken care of tho surplus vegetables
during the summer. Tomatoes and
corn have been plentiful and every
family should lose no time in canning
a full supply.
Watch your cabbage as the worms
are bad this time of the year and by
killing the white butterflies you will
save much trouble.
L.tlM.'E PLATE ULASS MINIMMV
A jack stone was thrown from the
brick street against a large plnte
glass window at the Omar Dodson
wholesale grocery yesterday by an
automobilo with such force as to
break the thick glass. A clause In
the traffic ordinance requires all wag
ons hauling sand and gravel to have
tight beds and this clause should be
strictly enforced as several valuable
windows have been broken by gravel
spilled from loose bed wagons , and
thrown against the glass by passing
