story is from the old German fable.
The show received a Parents mag

It is a story of long ago when
there lived on the edge of the great,

endlessly at chores while their par

BOZEMAN — The use of dried
plant materials lend themselves to
the construction of attractive ar
rangements that will bring color into
the home throughout the winter
Some garden plants, especially
in the everlasting flower group, hold
color well when dried. Gomphrena
and Helichrysum are two of the
more popular flowers of this group.
The plants can be gathered from the
garden when the flowers are fully
formed, tied in bundles and allowed
to hang upside down in a dry cellar
or shed. No other treatment is nec
essary in handling them.
Other garden flowers can be dried
but care must be taken in handling
these so the flowers retain their
original color, form and shape,
Many garden flowers are
fully dried in clean, moisture free
sand. Care must be taken when
placing the flowers in sand so that
they do not become distorted and
put out of shape,
Many interesting seed pods and
gra ss spikes of native plants make
interesting plant materials for dried
arrangements. Ripe wheat barley
and oat heads make interesting sub
jects, as well as the spikes of native
grasses. Seedpods of yucca bur
dock, poppies, milkweed are only
a few of the interesting native plants
that can be used effectively in ar
rangements. Dock seed heads
found in rich green, brown and red
shades and provide plenty of color.
Dried sagebrush plants add interest
ing greys, blues and greens to the
dried arrangement. The late sum
mer blooming purple liatris or blaz
ing star, if properly dried, is an
other good native wild flower to add
color. Colorful autumn foliage from
trees and shrubs is another import
ant source of color for the fall ar
Containers which match or com
plement the colors of the dried plant
materials are most suitable. They
should also be of a texture related
to the plant materials used. Since
no water is used with these arrange
ments, flat containers are very suit
able. In fact slabs of wood of ir
regular form, or irregular pieces of
flat stone, highly lacquered serve as
fitting bases or containers for fall
arrangements. Copper and brass
containers fit in beautifully with the
color scheme of many fall arrange
ments, so are very useful.
Pin point holders are useful for
holding the plant material, but even
more useful is a small amount of
floral clay, or plasticene, fastened
down to the container. Use enough
clay so that the plant material holds
up well without falling over because
of its weight.
The same principles of design
used for fresh flower arrangements
can be employed with dried arrange
ments. Dock, grasses, sagebrush are
useful in developing the fine or form
in the arrangements. Seedpods, dried
berries, rounded forms of dried flow
GREAT TEST FOR EXPLORERS
The greatest test of endurance for the Lewis and. Clark expedi
tion crossing Montana in 1805 on its way to the Pacific Ocean, came
in the month of September.
This test was the two-week trek across the Bitterroot mountains
by way of Lolo Pass into the Idaho country. The Idaho country
south and west of Lolo Pass is a jumble df mountains, ridges and
spurs, slashed with deep rugged gulches and canyons.
Game was scarce and food supplies ran dangerously low. The
men ate bear grease, horse meat and even coyote before they
emerged from the heavily forested country to reach the Clearwater
River in Idaho.
As the result of their fasting, privations and partial diet of
roots, most of the men were sick and exhausted. Nevertheless they
started at once to build canoes and on October 7 of 1805 took to the
water once more and were on their way to the Columbia River and

Water in Sub-Soil
Aids Spring Growth
BOZEMAN—It pays to apply wat
er in the fall in most irrigated areas
of Montana, says H. L. Dusenberry,
extension irrigation specialist.
His recommendation follows a sur
vey he made with county agents in
most of the irrigated areas.
The big reason for fall irrigation
is that it puts moisture into the sub
soil. Rains rarely put moisture any
deeper than a foot. And moisture in
the top foot of soil evaporates
quickly. Plant use of moisture in
the top foot also Is heavy during
the growing season but is light dur
ing the winter.
Moisture in the second and third
foot of soil does not evaporate. It
remains there for early spring use
of plants. This is an advantage.
The longer irrigation can be de^
layed in the Spring, the better, be
cause early spring irrigation with
cold water may retard plant growth.
Good fall irrigation means spring ir
rigation can be delayed from two
weeks to a month.
Other reasons Dusenberry cites for
fall irrigation are: It puts the hay
crop in good condition for the win
ter. It may save stands of legumes
and grasses and give them a quicker
start in the spring. It ! keeps crops
growing long after the spring rains
stop. Where fall plowing is necess
ary, fall irrigation puts the soil in
better condition for plowing. It
strings out the labor load.
about fall irrigation apply particu
larly to soils with fair to good mois
ture holding capacity. Gravelly or
sandy subsoils benefit the least from
