CLEANING UP IS IMPORTANT
Rubbish and Daad Plant* Should Bo

I Home gardens were boons to thop

| seem* to have become fixed with a
, large number of persons.
In most sections the late fall gar
-1 dens were killed by front and to many.
I cases the debris still Utters the ground.,
1 Bean pole# and tomato stakes, with’
| their burden of frosted vines, are

Winter Cleaning Up in Carden.
1 Deportment of Agriculture say. that
' all rubbish and dead plants he re
moved and burned to protect the crops
of next season from the Insects end
disease sporcM which infesl the debris.
A few hours of work In Ihe garden
now will save serious louse* another
year. Gather the hesn poles, tomato
stakes, and tiny removable treHlses or
wires, store the good one* until they
are again needed; then pull, rake to
gether, and burn all the dead vines
and plants left to the garden. If these
are too wet or green to burn, they may
bo gathered In small piles for a few
■lay* to dry and then plied together
and burned.
SWrad Manure In Winter.
Winter Is a good time to sjwesd
rough manure over the garden. This
serve* a double purpose. In that It
adds, fertility to the soil and also pro
tects the soil from washing and Mow
ing. Heavy clay soil* should he broken
op and left rough and lumpy before
applying tbs manure. The kind of
tusmire to use for this purpose is not
Important, so long as It I* not mind
with weed needs or iraeh of any kind.
Manure In which straw hss been used
for bedding can be taken direct, frogs
(be stable and spread on the garden
a* a surface rover during the winter,
the rough part being either plowed un
der In the spring or raked off and put
In Urn compost heap. The liner part
rerun Inltig on Ute ground ran be
worked Into the rop arrfl to preparing
lbs seed tied nest spring.
Compost Heap Helpful.
Compost made by piling up soda,
manure, and auy malerlnl having fer
tilising value will be needed in proper
I Ing special soil for seed beds and for
starting plants next spring. Mow Is
> the lime to make a compost heap. The
best method is to obtain a load of
manure, prepare a level spare 4 by U
feet, spread 2 or 3 Inches of the
. manure over this space, follow with a
layer of sod which baa been chopjied
i into pieces with a sharp stride, (lam
additional layers of manure and sod
' until all of the manure has (Ham used.
I A* s rule, the natural rainfall dur
ing the winter will be sum.lent lo
keep the pile properly moistened, and
as spring approaches a roof of boards,
or other covering, should be plkced
over (he pile so It will not be too wet
for use when needed. When the time
comes lo use It, Ibe compost should be
cut from one end of the pile with a
sharp spade, then thoroughly worked
over and screened before It Is placed
I lo seed boxes or In the hotbed.
Experienced gardeners keep a com-
I post heap going In one corner of the
garden from one year’s end to another,
and all surplus manure and sod are
placed In it. As a condequence, theae
gardener* always have a supply of
good loam for preparing spffeiel plant
beds or topdressing a piece of loud
for the growing of lettuce or-other in
tensive crop. .

BLACK-CAPPED CHICKADEES,

"Cheerfulness,” said little Merry
Chickadee, “it the greatest thing to
the world. I feel sorry for creatures
who always have something to fret
about, such a* their clothes or the
weather or the amount of money they
have in their pocketbooka for soda
waters and school books"
"Of course,” said little Jolly Chick
adee. a brother of Merry Chickadee,
“it's part of our family history to be
gay and cheery. We've always been.
Now. It's different with people.
They’ve had cross members of their
family aad pleasant one*. With the
chickadees, right down through the

of birds, we've always been gay and
bright.

Jolly continued. “It Is really differ

"Some folk* have to think of wheth
er they can afford this or that, for
the butcher and the grocer may be
charging more this weak than lost
but the cost of living doesn’t bother
na. No, no. Indeed.
“Even when prices were highest
we etlll didn't have to worry. That
wae Indeed fortunate. W# didn’t have
to buy anything or pay money for an?-
thing, end the same Is still true. W*
don't have to give out chickadee or
bird money because there isn’t euch

qA Fascinating Outdoor I
Fiction Serial 4 dfal
One of those tales which appeal to the quality in man and
woman that finds stories of human contest with the wild
forces of nature so enthralling. Possessing a high degree of lit
erary merit it is being hailed as the modem classic of its type.
Zone Grey says:
* The Voice of the Pact Is clean, fine, raw, bold, primitive; and i
haa a wonderfully haunting quality in tha repeated wolf-note."
The New York Times says: -'■>*—****
“ The Voice of the Pack* contains an intimate and detailed knowl
edge of the Oregon woods that makes the novel fascinating. The
i story in the main is a woodman idyl, rich in poetic fancy and
throbbing with a reverent love for a nature which is unspeakably
wonderful both in its majesty and in its all-pervading hospitality.
The Chicago DaUy New, son: .-i iT*
all around, Voice of tile' Pact is the best of the
stories about wild life that has come out in many, many moons"
