It isn't what you make but what you save that counts.
If one man makes $10,000 a year and spends it all and
another man maker only $5,000 a year and saves $1,000
he is much better, off than the other.
Make it a rule to bank a certain amount of your salary
each pay day and you will take pride in watching the
balance to your credit grow.

REMEDIES OF BOY
Days of "Lung Fever," When
A friend from the country recalls
the days when a boy came home at
night strangely tired, and when moth
er looked at him curiously and said
but little. Somehow she seemed rath- J
er tender, and came along and brush
ed the hair from his forehead and took
his hand and held it as he would like t
to have her do today. But alas! The
flowers have bloomed these 40 years
above her head.
And he remembers how the family
sat around for supper and how the
rattle of the dishes made him feel sick I
and how he wanted nothing to cat,
and how he fell asleep and awoke in
bed, screaming with a dream of falling
from some great height or that the
world and the moon came together
with a crash. And no one came, and
he settled down to feel the burdock
on his head and smell catnip tea that
he had a faint memory of taking a
gainst his will.
Somehow all of my memories of
boyhood ills are associated with cat
nip, camphor, balm of gilead and parc
gorlic. And there was ginger tea for

chills and there was a "cubboard" full
of other things, I now know none of
them. A boy that had a cold then
came pretty near doing as he was told
if it were serious enough to make
him act "tired." We never heard a
bout temperature; but I suppose we
had it then as now. The boy soaked
his feet, took medicine and went to
bed and when he coughed that croupy
cough, he took some" hen's oil and
molasses mixed that was guaranteed
to clear out the false membrane from
Onion Sirup and "Lung Fever."
There was onion sirup a pretty
good sort of stuff, if you liked it. It
was a specific for a stuffed-up cold,
one of those that presage pneumonia.
We never had pneumonia in those
days, though some people had "lung
fever." Onion poultices were not so
bad. They cured lives, presumably.
Ani.janion sirup took the field against
incipient stuffiness of the lungs.
If your ear ached ever try a roast
ed apple, put right on it? Pretty good
thing. Many a little shaver's anguish
has been relieved by this application.
Poultices flaxseed? Not yet out of
the pharmacopoeia! Many and many's
the flaxseed poultices that yet allay
disturbance! 'Twixt catnip sage and
ginger tea speaking of tea there
was no chioce. Old folks got a little
honey in the sage! It is "healin' " is
Mustard had its uses how many
a use. Hot mustard plasters or cold,
they drew big houses. Mustard was
not so common as lobelia or ipeacac
provided they arc not the samel Lob
elia had the uplift. It beat all the up
lift clubs in the world. And there was
turkey rhubarb We used to keep
great hunks of this yellow root and
when we needed it, we had to chew it
from the hunk, and all 'the sport we
could get out of it was to screw up
Burdock on your hand and foot!
That was helpful. A piece of pork on
a sore throat was good and it is not
yet an exploded remedy, for one of
the finest specialists in New England,
who runs an eye, ear and throat hos
pital in Maine, prescribed it for me
not so very long ago when I had a
bit of trouble. You may never have
seen a "humsweat" given. Volstead
may be after me for mentioning it
but it was a powerful thing as admin

ailing husband or boy. Many a iman

KEEP THE GARDEN PRODUCING
ALL THROUGH THE SEASON
Ground Should Be Kept Busy All the Time, Either by Com
panion Cropping, by Following One Crop With Another
or by Successive Planting.
Southern gardens begin to look
seedy about June 10, gardens in the
Kfiitilli Sfnlfc Bpptinn ire in tlii liricrlit
of their glory, and the New England
gardens arc just getting well started.
It seems to be a foregone conclusion
on the part of most persons through
out the Southern States that southern
gardens can be grown only in the
spring and in the fall, with a few
chance hardy crops during the win
ter. The farmers of the middle section
plants his spring garden, then gets
busy with farm crops, and very little
further attention is given the garden,
unless the work is done by the wo-

beans, sweet corn, and a number of
other vegetables can be had by mak
ing successive plantings.
Grow One Crop After Another
Tlio trnrflpti is crenerallv the richest
spot of ground on the farm, and for,
that reason should be expected to pro
duce more than any other similar i
area. To get maximum production,
however, it is necessary to" keep the
land busy all the time. This can be
done in two ways; first ,by companjon
cropping, and second, by following
one crop with another or successive
There are a number of crops that
lend themselves to companion crop
ping. For example, where onion sets
are planted in rows, say 18 inches be
tween the rows, a row of radishes,
spinach, or lettuce can be drilled be
tween the rows of onions and be offi
the ground before the onions need
the space, Spinach, radishes early
beets, or turnips can be planted be
tween carrotts, parsnips, and salsify. ,
A crop of snap beans can frequently
be grown between the rows of toma
toes. Radish seeds may often be
planted alongside a row of peas, the
radishes being pulled and out of the
way before the peas begin to climb J
the trellis or brush provided for their
support or to sprea'd oyer the ground.
A little later in the season sweet corn
or late cabbage can be planted be
tween the rows of early Irish potatoes
and make considerable of a start be-
fore the Irish potatoes are dug.
In the extreme South a few crops
that will withstand the heat should
be planted for midsummer use. Swiss
chard, while adapted to a temperate
climate, does fairly well under south
ern conditions and continues to pro
duce greens throughout the gcater
part of the summer. Bussella, of New
7oolonrl rinnrli is ndanted for the
production of greens during the heat-
ed period. '
The middle section, early peas may
be followed by late cabbage, late po-i

tatoes, late snap beans, beets, or tur-"
nips. Early Irish potatoes may be
followed by turnips, late snap beans,
or by late sweet corn
Fall gardens should in no case be
overlooked, especially from the Mid
dle States southward. Plantings of
practically all the early spring vege
tables may be made from July to
September, according to locality, and
be brought to maturity before early
autumn frosts. By proper attention
to the garden, fresh vegetables may
be had through a period of about 10
months of the year in the extreme
South and for about 7 months in the
middle section. The season for the
New England and northwestern sec
tions is necessarily much more limited
but even here the efficiency of a gar
den can be greatly increased by a
careful study and altcntion to the
matter of companion croppjng and
successive plantings of certain vege
tables. Late cabbage seed should be sown
about June 1, in most sections and the
plants set in the garden June 20 to
July 5. The last planting of sweet
corn should be made about 80 days
before the first killing frost of autumn
may be expected.
Most crops mature in a shorter
period in the late summer than in the
spring. This is due to the shortening
of the days and the tendency of the
plant to "hurry up" to produce its
seed before winter overtakes it. It
pays to take a chance on late plant
ings of beets, carrots, lettuce, spinach,
snap beans, sweet corn and turnips if
von like them.
As a rule early or quicK maturing ,
varieties are best for late planting.
v ----- -- t , I
This aces not apply, however to wid
en Bantam coin which does best in
the -pring. Ev rgrcen or Mammoth
Evergreen com are considered best
for late planting.
A Few Trickc Worth Learning
Plenty of fertility in the soil and a
little commercial fertilizer will help
greatly to push the late crops to
maturity. In some sections a little
nitrate of soda is used as a top dress
ing to hurry the plants along.
There are a ereat many little tricks
flmt chmilri be learned and oractised i
by the gardner. It is not necessary to :
be a wizard to practice these tricks
but just a good, common sense gar-1
dner. One of the best of these is the
use of a .board laid over the row of
seed, for a few days after planting to
hold' the moisture and make the seeds
start during dry weather. Another is
to flood the furrow with water and
allow it to ioak into the soil before
dropping the sc'ds, then cover with
dry earth. Slightly packing or firm-'
ing the dry soil over the seeds will!
help to bring the moisture to the sur-
face and make the seeds grow. Gar-.
den tricks are easy to perform try
a few and see the results in tne torm
of fresh vegetables for the table it
means better living.
