ou. T. Ordner (rives designs and de

some useful homemade devices for pro
tecting early plants from frost and cold
winds and from bugs.
First ls the simple box framo, u box
without top or bottom, say n foot
aguare and four to elx Inches high. A
BOX WITH MU*bIX TOP-MUSLIN COVBlt
WITH KMD UOAltDH.
HQuare piece of cloth or netting may be
tacked over the top. A similar device
ls made of stiff paper, with a piece of
cheesecloth sewed or pasted right over
a square opening cut Jnto the top, the
sides being held down by pieces of wiro
bont in double pin shape. For another
devlce a piece of netting may bo tacked
in two end boards, each end board be
ing provided with a small sharpened
stake (nailed on tho outside), which
when pushed into the ground will hold
the end boards In place, with the cloth
stretched tightly between them oyer
the plants. Rven a large piece of cloUi
or netting and a few sticks will do the
business. We cnn take some pieces of
willow twigs or other pliable wood und
stick a couple of them crosswise Into
the ground In the form of a how over
the top of plants
or a single plant
and placo the
piece of cloth
over this framo,
holding the edg

ing a little noll
WILLOW Twias ANO up over them, or
MUSLIN, we may simply
push one or more little sticks slantingly
Into the ground and over the plaid or
plants and cover with netting, or tho
netting may be simply placed directly
over tho plants In loose folds. Cheese
cloth may be considered preferable to
ordinary mosquito netting. The latter
ls rather coarse und would not prove an
effective barrier to thrlps and other
amah Insects that might do dainngo.
All these devices are simple and per
haps as effective as any more elaborate
or more eoBtJy ones.

that seems to be near the end of
its career of usefullness ? Does
it skip and beat now and then

tell you what to do. Take a
bit of cotton batting the size of
a hen's egg, dip it in kerosene
and place it on tho floor of the
clock in the corner, shut the
door of the clock and wait three
or four days. Your clock will
be like a new one-skip no
more,it will strike as of old, and
as you look inside you will find
the cotton batting black with
dust. The fumes of the oil loos

The MostWidoly Read Newspaper
Time has demonstrated that the Thrice
a-.Wcek World stands alone in a class.
Other papers have imitated its form but
no i ?ts success. This is because it tells
it impartially, whether that news be po?
Utica] or otherwise. It is in fact almost
a daily at the price of a weekly.
In addition to news, it publishes first
class serial stories and other features
suited to the home and fireside.
The Thrice a Week World's regular
subscription price is only $1.00 per year
and this pays lor 156 papers. We ofter
this unequalled newspaper and the Dem?
ocrat together one year for $1.67.
