IS HIS WEDDING ANNIVERSARY ^ MAMIE. 4. Nature's Children By LILLIAN COX ATHEY MEADOW BUTTERCUP. (Ranunculus acris.J Have you ever seen a meadow carpeted in gold? The buttercups, given an opportunity, will take over meadows, fields, roadsides and grassy places. They are naturalized citizens from Europe in Canada and the United States. In the north, they fW <-1 are more golden end larger than those we find In the south and east. Some call the buttercup the cuckoo flower; others, kingcups, and still others, blister-flowers. By any name, these wildlings are lovely and may be found blooming from May until September, though not very abun dantly in the late months. In a wildflower garden where the charming flowers of the open spaces grow', these gay children were gath ered and placed where they would receive loving care and extra food. Did they respond! They doubled in size. They lasted longer and they were so attractive with other wild flowers of a contrasting shade. Each spring they come up and spread. We go to so much trouble to plant flowers each year when our native wildflowers would be ready to move toward the sun as soon as the frost left the ground. The buttercup is shining yellow and about an inch across. They are numerous, terminating in long slen der footstalks. The stem is erect and branched, and may reach three feet in height. The roots are fibrous. From a tuft at the base, the stem leaves add their fern-like beauty to the plant. Because of their acrid juice, these plants are left alone by cattle. The brilliant syrphidae flies call on the buttercups, and so do the wasps, beetles and bees. Someone counted over 60 species which came to sip nectar and take away pollen. The buttercup stores some food in her bulbs, but not so much as her bulbous cousin, which arrives first in the spring. But the common meadow buttercup is thrifty, and she has many children added to her group every year. It is wonderful to see how quickly your cloth of gold spreads, once you have established buttercups in your garden. The low growing species has been found very acceptable in rock gardens. The higher ones are a wonderful con trast to violets and purple iris. They fit in with cultivated flowers. When they die down, other plants with shallow root systems may be planted over them. Electricity Use Increases Despit blackouts and wartime scarcity of household electrical ap pliances, use of electricity in South Africa has greatly increased this year.

O Susanna! Oh, there is no "lug” in luxury; No “sup” is in surprise. No "cull” in culinary, And no “con” in recognize. An ignoramus doesn’t "ram.’’ Vagary is not “vague." Oh, take the "grum” from telegram; Remove the "rog” from Prague. 0 Susanna! In all sincerity 1 recommend you mend your speech; So take the hint from me. Correct pronunciations: Luxury: LUX-shoo-ree. Surprise: sur-PRIZE. Culinary: KEW'll-NAIR-ee. Recognize: REK-ug-nize. Ignoramus: IG-noe-RAY'muss. Vagary: vuh-GAIR-ee. or: vuh-GAY-ree. Telegram: TELL-e-gram. Prague (best choice): rhymes with “vague.” Beachhead—Bridgehead. There is a tendency to confuse the terms beachhead and bridge head, although there is a real dis tinction between them. Originally, bridgehead designated a fortified barrier erected at the end of a bridge. By extension, the word came to mean any spot taken on the enemy 's side of a stream. But bridges are not built across seas and oceans. To speak of our “bridgehead” on the Italian coast south of Rome is in accurate. To designate such a land ing place, the terms “beachhead” has been coined, and it is sure to appear in future editions of the dictionaries. (Released by The Bell Syndicate, Inc.)
