W The Home Vegetable (iardon.
HF The essential things to bo consid^red
in the home gard-en are; location,
planning, preparation aad cultivaIP
tion, fertilization and equipments.
In locating the garden the question
of its nroximitv to the house is
of vast importance, for naturally most j
: fcuents which could not be taken ad-j
Br vatage of if the garden were located
of the work is done during spare mor
a half mile from the house. Other
things being equal, the general lay
% of the land determines to a consider
able extent the earliness of the crops.
Well-drained land, sloping gently to
the South or Southwest, is prefera-j
ble for the production of early vegetables.
Wind barriers, such as hills,
t woods hedges, tight board fences, etc.,
on the North or Northwest produce
very much the same effect. Choose a
location that is well drained or tile
r drain it after it has been chosen.
If circumstances will permit, make
the rows long, thereby saving time
in turning and economizing land.
Grow vegetables in. rows long enough
and wide enough to permit cultivation
by horse and wheel hoe. If the rowsj
are long it may oe necessary iu piaun
more than one kind of vegetable in
the same row, in which case it is ex-J
ceedingly important that they arej
^ compatible?that is, they require the
m same general treatment and practical-1
r ly the same growing season. The;
Tv?7.ar.njoic cup/h c\c asnarasus. rhu-!
tuuiuio, ^v?v?A www w
barb, etc., should be planted at one
side where they will not interfere
with the cultivation of the other crops.
The larger growing plants, as corn, \
late cabbage and potatoes may be !
planted together on the side of thej
garden. Of course these suggestions|
F? are general, since frequently there;
are conditions over which the garden-!
er has little or no control. Sometimes j
I I there is a decided variation in the!
. j. character of the soil in the same gar- j
V den. This, as well as any other local
condition, ought to be taken into consideration
in arranging for the location
of the various crops. For example,
if a part of the garden be low.;
moist and cool, this place should not
be planted to earlv crops, which rev...
r quire a quick warm son uut suumu
"be reserved for onions, celery etc.
A rotation of crops, manures and
tillage should be practiced on the garden,
as well as on the general farm.
It is doubly important to rotate if diseases
and insects become serious on
any one crop. In a rotation to eradicate
diseases and insects, the great
est care should be take to select tnose
f crops on which these particular pests
cannot thrive. For example, the potato
"scab" will live on such plants as,
turnips. radishes and rutabagas.
There are some pests, however, which
cannot be starved out in this manner
on so small a place as the garden. In
" * ' *- ^ '?? Art r?
a case of this Kma, it is usuanj tucap-,
er to plant that particular crop and
others on which this pest would exist
on a different part of the farm until
the pest has been starved out of the
Time and labor will be saved by
making the garden soil deep, fine and
jich before planting. It is not suf
that thd land be smooth on
rJiVicav vuuv v?.v
top, but the pulverizing process
should extend as deep as the plowing,
for few things are more detrimental!
to the delicate roots of the small
plants than clods and air spaces, both
of which are results of poor preparation.
By harrowing thoroughly before'
and after plowing, the land can be putj
- in excellent physical condition. A j
? av M Vmfrtpa !
deep, tnorougn piepai ancm
. planting and frequent, shallow culti- j
ration after planting is necessary for j
The. fertilizer used influences to a
marked degree the character and
quality of the vegetables produced.
> Barn yard manure is undoubtedly the j
m? best for this purpose, but care should;
be taken to see that it is well rotted
and contains no elements that would
0 be injurious to the soil. An excess j
W of such things as saw dust, shavings,i
1 etc., which do not rot quickly, have a
tendency to produce sourness in th?
soil, which is detrimental to practically
all garden vegetable. Even j
Tvhen barnyard manure is used, it is i
usually economical to supplement it
with a good high-grade commercial I
fertilizer with a greater per cent, of
m potash than is required "by the general
J field crops. Under ordinary condiditions,
a fertilizer with an analysis
of 3 per cent, nitrogen; 8 per cent,
phosphoric acid; 8 or iu per cem.
potash, would he found to give excellent
results in a vegetable garden.
Nitrate of soda hastens tile growth of
f such early crops as asparagus, rhubarb,
lettuce, etc. Hard wood ash is
one of the best sources of potash, provided
it has not been exposed to rain.
Bp* Lime while not directly a fertilizer,
often produces beneficial results when
applied to garden soils, especially if
the ^nd has a tendency to sourness.
By use of hotbed and cold frame
(without which no garden is complete)'
the vegetable season could be
I lengthened at both ends. The hotbed
! consists of an enclosure covert J with
sash (in some case cloth is substi
tuted 1 jr glass and supplied with some \
form of artificial heat to keep the soil |
warm and in condition to favor plant I
growth. Usually fermented stable i
manure is used for this purpose. The
cold frame is a hotbed without the
artificial heat. In preparing the hotbed,
have the manure thoroughly mixed
and fined. Put in a bed of manure

about 5 or 6 inches deep with clean
garden 6oil. After the bed has been
prepared, let the heat come down to
80 degrees F. before planting the seed.
After the plants are up, the hotbed
should be ventilated during the forenoon
of warm days by raising the
sash on the opposite side from the
wind. Water on bright days during;

be grown to maturity in hotbeds orj
cold frames, while others are started
in them and transplanted to the open
when outside conditions are favorable.
There are but few things more necessary
to a garden than a hotbed.
Something1 About Storms.
On this side of the equator we call j
the storms which originate far to j
the south cyclones. They are 002 to!
1,000 miles wide. They are called;
hurricanes in the West Indies. They'
may not be violent, especially when j
they are wide. When they pass over'
the gulf they are deflected to the
northeast and often move up the At.
lantic coast. Sometimes tney lurn i
towards Louisiana and give the gulf
coast a lashing.
When they strike the mouth of the
Mississippi th-ey generally turn to the 1
northeast. That is what the last !
cyclone did. The one last Sunday.

Many reasons have been assigned as
the cause of animal and vegetable lu
minosity, but until recently none had
been put forward that were worthy of
consideration. The recent researches
on radio-activity have shown that
within the atom lies a mighty force
that man has not succeeded in utilizing.
So tremendous is the latent energy
that were it possible to loose only
a part of it. a boy, by turning a crank,
could manufacture sufficient electrical
energy to drive the engines of London's
countless workshops and factories.
Radium owes its wonderful proper
ties to the fact that its atoms are in a
state of decay, and the disintegration
produces a certain amount of energy.
It has been thought that to some creatures
the secret of using this interatomic
energy has been revealed, with
