THE USE OF WATER AS( PROTEC
TION AGAINST FROST.
At the annual meeting of the Mich
igan S'ato Horticultural Society, held
at Grand Itapids, C. 1". Schneider, sec
tion dliector of the Michigan weather
bureau, recommended the use of water
us protection against frost. Ho said:
"Tho use of water liberally sprayed
or sprinkled over vegetation is n
method of preventing frost that has
been known for many years. I re
member my father's habit of protect
ing a few peach trees by placing a
tub of water under tho tree nnd then
placing largo loosely twisted pieces
of rope from the tub to tho upper
branches of tho tree.
"In a general way I would suggest
tank wagons for orchards with gaso
lene force pumps nnd spray nozzles
to that tho trees with buds or fruit
can bo thoroughly drenched, after
sunset or before midnight. A similar
' nnd smaller nffalr might be drawn
through vineyards, strawberry patches.
potato fields and gardens and even
corn fields.
"Tho use of water may bo suggested
as n cure for frost. A liberal appll
I cation of cold water to frosted plants
' lief ore dawn may possibly draw out
j tho frost in n manner similar to rub
' bing the linuds, noo ur ears when
frosted with snow before exposing
them to the waimth of a living room,
j On fro'.y nights not only should water
I bo applied as a preventive but when
possible it .should again bo applied
early in the morning, beforo sunrise,
as a possihlo euro of frostbites.
I "In June, 1913, I was the guest of
j Joseph Horner at Newaygo Lakes.
! His house and garden nre water piped,
) and with plenty of hoso ho could reach
' all of his aero of garden and orchard.
On Saturday morning. Juno S, tho sky
cleared and tho wind veered to the

solutely no frost damage in his gar

lowing night but another thorough
drenching with water saved every
thing again.

GARDENS OF WILD FLOWERS.
Wild tlower.t should b planted ns
soon as tho frost Is out of tht' ground.
Tho demand for wild flowers Is con
stantly increasing, and one florist, Kd
ward CHIlett of Southwlclt, Ma&B.,
grows nothing else; his largo nursery
Is devoted to wild flowers. Ho can
supply almost any natlvo American
plant.
CANKER WORMS.
Canker worms begin to ascend trees
as soon as frost Is out of the ground,
attacking orclurd and rhndo trees,
particularly apple, elm, pear, chestnut,
lilokory, oak, maple, bo'eldcr, cherry
and plum. Tho canker worms are the
most common of tho measuring worms
that loop up in tho middle.
Spray with nrsenato of lead, three
pounds to a barrel of water, applied
as soon ns the follago is fairly ex
panded and before tho trees bloom,
with u second bpraylng ns soon ns tho
flowers drop. Tho flrst spraying, If
well done, will usually, be sufllclent.
Ihiclrcllng tho trees with bauds of
sticky paper which the females cannot
miss will prevent them from ascend
ing the trees and depositing their eggs.
Get the bands on the trees this month.
l'laio a band of cotton around the
treo nnd cover this with a strip of
l uildlng paper six inches wide, over
which tho sticky band should bo placed.
A .sticky preparation sold by seeds
men, called tanglefoot, may bo applied
directly to tho tree. It Is quickly ap
plied nnd thoroughly effective.
Tho amateur flower garden ought tc
lie put on a business basis, like the
kitchen garden. The plants ought to
pay lent for tho ground they occupy.
The potatoes only require aliotit
three months to make a crop and then
they go, leaving tho land to the ecl-

Wild Flowers
That Bloom Early
should be planted soon after the frost leaves the ground. What
is more refreshing to see than the early blooming wild flowers
peeping up, from their secluded haunts, in tho stillness of a
spring morning? They revivify tho memories of days gono by
when, ax a child, you lingered on your way to school to hunt
them out. Why not havo them growing close by now?
Here is my special offer for a shady location!
