"While firmly convinced that many
flowers indicate, a happy people, the
chamber of commerce is equally cer
tain that a well-appointed and care
fully tended kitchen garden is a po
tent 'factor in the happiness of its
townsmen, especially of the possessor
of such a 'garden. Here, too, a love
for the gentle art and innocent de
lights of kitchen gardening, is ,best es
tablished in the more youthful of our
kind, and accordingly the. Hamilton
Chamber of Commerce has instituted
the chamber of commerce prizes f6r
the best kitchen gardens grown by lads
and lassies of not to exceed 16 years of
age, who reside in Hamilton and its
"The prizes are $10, $6 and $4, being

over 16, who have with their own
heads and hands produced the gardens
submitted, and who submit stories of
their experiences of not to exceed 100
words, and plans of their gardens, at

"Finally, the Hamilton Chamber of
Commerce will divide the sum of $30

the city limits, who have, during the.
period from April 1 to Labor day, of
this year, maintained the best kept-up
residence. Judge and awarding of
prizes will occur on Labor .day, and

"The $30 will be dlvided as follows:
First prize, $15; second prize, $10, and
third prize, $5.00. Details of this
contest will be announced at an early
"These prizes are the beginning of
a list of pirizes which the chamber of
commercie and ottlers hope to see es
ti.lisheid as annual .prizes. They are
offered this year more or less tentn
tively, and the idea will be on trial,
as it were. The success of it depends'
on the enthusiasm of the contestants
and the spectators.
"Incidentally, the chamber of com
merce may do a little by vway of beau
tifying its own grounds. Watch it."
