that there is plenty of coal in the city,

TIMELY HINTS FOR '
THE HOME GARDENER
Still Time to Plant Certain Vegetables
in This Section.
There is still time to plant all the
garden crops in this section, even if
you have not rj-eady plowed your
ground, say specialists of tne U. S. de
partment or agriculture. It is now, in
fact, the best safe planting period for
tnis region.
It is time to plant peas, beets, pars
nips, and similar crops. If you start
at once there is still time to make two
.plantings of peas at intervals of ten
days, and you will have peas for at
least a month after they come into
hearing. It is not too early to make
the first planting of string beans
Beans, beets, Brussels sprouts, cab
bage. carrots, corn, kale, lettuce, leeks,
onions, parsnips, parsley, peas, pota
toes, radishes, salsify, spinach and
turnips should all be lanted as soon
as the ground can be made ready.
Tomato plants may be set in a few
days. Lima beans, both pole and
bush, should not be planted for about
ten days. The heat-loving plants,
such as peppers, eggplants, muskmel-
ons, watermelons, squash and cucum
hers, should not be set or planted un
tl the weather is warm and the soil
well warmed up. Planting may be
done on light, warm soils at least a
week sooner than on heavy soils in
frosty pockets, hence the gardener
must be guided in making .plantings
by the location and character of his
soil.
CHIEF STANTON HOME FROM
WASHINGTON CONFERENCE
International Fire Engineers Postpone
Jacksonville Meeting Indefinitely.
Chief Howard L. -Stanton of the lo
cal fire department has returned home
after attending a conference of the In
ternational Association of Fire Engi
neers in Washington last Thursday.
The conference decided to postpone
indefinitely the October meeting of
the international association which
was to have been held in Jacksonville.
Fla., this action being taken in view of
tiie war the engineers being of the
opinion that their place at the pres
ent time and for the remainder of the
war is at home at the head of their
departments, ready to protect lives
and property. A conference on the
matter with President Wilson which
was expected to have been held Fri
day morning was delayed owing to
the late arrival of telegrams from en
gineers unable to be present.
If the war continues it is feared that
the railroads, bv October, would be
unable to provide freight accommoda
tions for the numerous exhibits that
go to make up a successful convention
and also that the absence of promi-re-t
chiefs who would be unable to
leave their home cities, would spell
failure for the convention.
Attorney Casetdy'e Farm Leased.
Attorney V John H. Caasidy, one ' of
the owners and officials of the Water-
bury & Milldale Tramway CbmpanyTi
confirmed . the report that he had

an people who will go into the hog
raising business. He said he Knew

the hogs. It is understood that the
men interested in the enterprise have
considerable money and Intend rais
ing the hogs on the western' plan,
which is to let them roam ovm con
siderable territory.. There may be as
many as 1.000 hogs, it is said.
Dairymen Are Interested.
Connecticut dairymen are taking
considerable interest in moy beans as
a food crop. The Connecticut commit
tee of food supply has disposed of
nearly all of the shipment of 30 bush
els of soy bean seed and a. large part
of it will be used by dairymen to be
planted with corn for silage. By

MOTHERS' DAY SERMON
AT UNIVERSALIST CHURCH
Mother le Entitled to the Greatest
Love end Honer, Says Rev. J. F.
Cobb.
In commemoration of Mothers' day.
Rev. Joseph F. Coblb, pastor of the
Church of the Good Shepherd, spoke
very Interestingly on the topic. Our
Debt to the Mothers, at the morning
service on Sunday. In part Rev. Mr.
Cobb spoke as follows:
Today is the anniversary of the day
when toe people of this land are ask
ed to give gome thought of their moth
er. If living to visit her if possible
to let her' know that she la loved and
revered. If not possible to visit her
and tell her, of that regard, to write
her a loving letter and let her know
that her children are thinking of hr.
If she is not living amid the earth
ly scenes, to show the reverence and
regard for her memory by some lov
ing act.
Mother is entitled to the greatest
love and honor. It is agreed that the
virtues of a true mother are purity,
beauty, love, charity and faithfulness.
The men and women who have
reached the age of maturity must
know, if they think at all or observe
at all about the love and care of their
parents, how the mother heart follow
ed them from the hours of birth on
through all the days and years.
Note now that mother is the heart
of the home. It is wel said that the
father may be the ftead of the home
but the mother is the heart. The char
acter of the home depends more on
the influence of the mother than on
anything else.
Let us note again that the mother is
the hope of the nation. It was said
long ago '"the hand that rocks the
cradle is the hand that rocks the
world."
Once more we note that the mother
is in a large measure the support of
the chiidch
We owe a debt to mothers that can
never be fully paid. The nation is en
deavoring to make some return as
there is quite a general simultaneous
expression throughout the land of the
love, and gratitude that men, women
and children as well as the nations
owe to their good mothers.
