Some were suspected of havlnc tubercu

"It offers a flno opportunity to women,"
Doctor Haines continued. "The work Is
taiy compared with most work of a
Wa'clan. and It Is Intensely Interesting.
'.Being a comparatively new branch of
medicine, there are very few women rep

'lncreasing demand for women to Carry

'Then again It Is like all spoclallst work;
H takes a long whllo before there are

more and more.
"I want to urge women to tako up the
work," she earnestly continued. "There
will be so much rebuilding of men nnd

First Problems of Home Planting Are Explained in
Detail Plowing Should Be Done at
Possible Time
Tlin llrst problem In preparing tlic
land for a garden that has not been
used for this purpose Is to remove all
dend weeds, sticks, stones, bushcn nnd
trash of any sort. Driers und bushes
should be dug up by. the roots so they
will not Bprout ngaln.
tlood drainage la essential to u mic
cessful garden. If the land is not well
drained, this1 should be corrected as the
first step in making tho garden. Tile
draliiR may be used or the land may ho
bedded by plowing It In long, narrow
lanes, leaving the middle furrons aB
drainage ditches. In the case of gardens
spaded and worked by hand the same
results may bo had by bedding up tho
soil. Vegetables will not thrive In poor
ly drained hoII no matter how much
cars Is given them.
Plowing or spading should be dona at
the earliest possible moment, in order
that In sections of the country where
freezing occurs tho soil may be subject
ed to freezing so that It will ho broken
up by the nctlon of the frost and be
mellow and friable when planting begins.
Nothing aids In tho preparation of the
soil, and especially stiff soils, like freez
ing nnd thawing. It Is especially Im
portant that ground In sod bo plowed
In tlmo so It will freeze after plowing
and the grub worms nnd other hiber
nating Insects and worms may be de
stroyed. Where severe freezing 1h sure to oc
cur nfter the plowing Is dono llttlo harm
will be done by plowing tho ground while
wet. Otherwise the ground should not
be plowed until fairly dry, or clods will
The ground after plowing should be
allowed to remain rough until needed.
It is an excellent plan to make an ap
plication of air-slaked lime or ground
limestone to the freshly plowed soil In
order that It may have time to correct
acidity beforo planting time arrives. The
manure should not be applied with the

limn as loss of nitrogen will occur under j
these circumstances. The time should bo
applied and become mixed with the soli
before tho manure Is applied. The ma
nure should be of a good grade, stable
manure cither from horses or cattle pref
ciably. Manure that has straw bedding
material mixed with It Is best, and
should bo uppllcd at the rate of twenty
tlve or thirty tons per acre or from 300
to 400 pounds .per square rod.
It Is an excellent plan to prepare the
coll for planting us needed rather than
to fit tho whole garden at once. If the
work of lilting the ground ts done with l
a team it will not always be feasible
to follow this plan. Clround that has
not been used for gardening purposes
should, In every case where It Is pos
sible, be put In condition with a team,
as tho ground should be cut up with a.
dlbk or cutaway harrow, thoroughly
fining the soli as deeply as It has been
plowed, thoroughly mixing tho manure
with tho ?ol.
It Is, of cour.se, possible to do tho
woil: Just as well by hand, but a con
siderable amount of labor is Involved.
For small areas, however, this method Is
the only practical one. When the garden
Is to bo worked by hand It Is especially
desirable that the spading be done as
early as possible, as the sooner It is done
tho easier It will be to get tho ground
in condition. The ground should be
worked down nnlv ns needed, nn this will
distribute the labor and as the rough I
ground will dry off quicker than that '
smoothed down, It Is posstblo to get on
the ground sooner If left In the rough
than when well worked down. It Is
extremely desirable to got such crops j
as early peas, early potatoes and early ,
cabbage plants In as soon as the ground ,
Is dry enough, and It Is often possible I
to get these crops planted a week or
two earlier by following this plan. I
Well-slftcd coal ashes, unllko wood
ashes, have no fertilizing value, but aro
useful In lightening soil. I.lmo will
lighten toll und nt the same tlmo cor-
reel acidity.

floor" and "special discount."
A very proper suspicion attaches to the man who uses
such terms, for the public has well learned that it gets
what it pays for!
But we Goodyear Service Station Dealers find that in
the tire business certain fallacies prevail that are discred
ited everywhere else.
Chief among these fallacies is the belief in certain quar
ters that it pays to buy a "special discount" tire.
Let us say here and now, that when a dealer offers you a "special
discount" to get you to buy a tire, you may fairly be sure that he is
doing one of two things.
Either he is offering a tire on which he, himself, gets a special discount
from its maker; or he is withholding from you the helpful service so
necessary to get the maximum mileage from that tire.
In the one case the tire's quality is lowered at the source by compro
mised manufacture; in the other its capacity for service is handicapped
by neglect.
Remember that only the conscientious dealer who gets his fair margin
can afford to sell you a quality tire backed by the kind of service
which will insure its long life and your satisfaction.
