Get Ready Now for Flowers.
Do not wait till the busy season is
on before you make preparation for
your flower garden. Always order
seeds early. If you wait till late in
the season it is possible the seeds
man may be out of fresh seeds and
will fill orders with those not as
Don't buy little driblet packages.
You get but few seeds and it is too
small business. One trouble with
many is. they don't have enough of
any kinds of flowers. The town lot
may be crowded but there will be room
on the farm. We know a man usual
ly wants the earth, but it is no more
than right for the wife to have an
acre or two in the front yard, and
he ought to tend it, too, to pay for his
cooking and washing, and he will get
off cheap at that.
Be sure and plant a lot of peren
nials. Some kinds will not bloom the
first year. Oriental Poppies and Co
lumbines do not flower till the second
year. Gaillardias and Dephiniums will
make quite a show the same season,
so will phloxes.
Caring for Hothouse Plants.
Plants raised in window boxes ear
ly in the spring sometimes rot off at
the ground and fall over. This is
called damping off and is caused by
a web-like fungus which grows on the
surface of the soil, envelopes the little
stems, and causes them to slump off.
To avoid these sprinkle dust of sul
phur or bituminous coal over the
ground after sowing the seeds, or dust
the surface with flour of sulphur and
give the plants plenty of air and light
but do not set them in a cold draught.
Cabbage and tomato plants as well as
those of balsams, pansies and other
seedling flowers are likely to damp
off, especially in damp, cloudy weath

The Beauty of Hollyhocks.
The Improved double hollyhocks are
glorious garden flowers when well
grouped and well grown. The plants
will reach the height of six or seven
feet and for several weeks during the
summer will show great circles of full,
fluffy flowers of all shades from pure
white to rich crimson and from sul
phur yellow to golden orange. The
best means of propagation is by seeds.
These should be carefully saved from
selected plants of a choice strain and
when started early in spring some
plants are likely to bloom the first
season. As a rule, however, it is as
well to sow the seeds in May and
when the plants are large enough
transplant them to the bed where they
are to bloom.
Salt Rising Bread.
(Fannie M. Wood.;
The evening before you wish to
bake your salt rising bread heat a
half pint of new milk almost to the
boiling point; then add a few tea
spoonfuls of corn meal to the hot
milk. Now, if you can study up a
warm place to keep this starter dur
ing the night* you will find it light
and full of bubbles when you stir it
next morning. Now take warm water
and flour and make a moderately
thick batter, adding the starter, and
put in a kettle of warm water. If the
water is kept warm this sponge will
be light in a little while. Before time
to mix the bread scald a part of the
flour with hot milk and let it cool
before mixing. Make out in loaves
at once after mixing. Unlike yeast
bread, it is not necessary to allow it
to get light before making into loaves.
Planet, Jr., Drill and Cultivator.
Salt rising bread requires more
warmth from start to finish than
yeast bread. The milk and meal
starter must be kept during night
where the temperature is about the
same as that inside of an incubator
during the hatching period, then it
will be light, and a lively starter we
must have to make a success with
salt rising bread. Don't forget to salt
you bread. Some add sugar when
mixing, but this is not necessary, as
salt rising bread is naturally sweet.
The Science of Boiling.
To boil water would seem to be a
very simple thing and yet the late
Charles Delmonico used to say that
very few people knew how to do it.
"The secret is," he said, "in putting
good fresh water into a clean kettle
already quite warm and setting the
water to boiling quickly. Then take
it right off for use in tea, coffee or,
other drinks before it is spoiled. To
let it steam and simmer and evapo
rate until the good water is in the
atmosphere and the lime and iron and
dregs left in the kettle makes a great
many people sick and it is worse than
no water at all." For water boiled
like this and flavored with a few drops
of lemon juice Mr. Delmonico used
to charge as much as for his best
liquors and he often recommended it
to his customers and friends who com
plained of loss of appetite.
