There is Real Humor in Gardening
If You’ll Only Look For It Spring, the Season When Everybody Wants to Plant Things. The City Gardener and the Suburban Farmer Both Get j}USy_How One Man Made a Success of What Was Considered An Impossible Proposition By DOLLY DALRYMPLE "Dill you know that potato peelings fan be planted and potatoes raised from them?" asked Mr. Toblots the other day, who. as all his friends know, has gone "daffy" about his new suburban honied "I've heard of planting tomato cans and raising tomatoes al! canned and ready for use." I answered foolishly. Mr. Joblots looked hurt. "i’m serious," said he. "It's the truth. You can plant potato parings and they’ll grow just as good as pieces of potato cut out around each eye, which is the usual manner of planting for potato growing. That's not the only thing I’m finding out since I’ve begun to farm.” "He swelled with great prhle as he said this, and I promptly observed: "I didn’t know you had a place big enough to farm on.” “That's a popular fallacy,” Mr. Joblots •••••••••••••••a•••••••••••••••••••••••••••■•••••••« D CLLYS HaMTI T’S | Philosophy!

C.—In an interesting fetter from this place, Mrs. Stella M. Bowman writes as follows: "Aly mother was weak and run down, and was In bed for nine weeks. She was not able to do any of her work. Some lady told her about Cardul, the woman s tonic. She decided to try It, and, after taking three bottles was able to do all of her household w-ork. You may publish this letter if you wish,- as It would bp a great pleasure to me to know that I have been of help to some suffering woman ." The best way to relieve womanly troubles, pains, headaches, backache, etc., is to help nature by taking Cardul. Cardul lias not only been found of great assistance in relieving, the nujst . serious cases of womanly trouble, but I has also proven Itself an Ideal i strength-building tonic for weak, tired, nervous women. Cardul is successful, because it Is composed of ingredients that act effec tively on the womanly constitution, I and build up health and strength In a natural manner. It Is strictly a wom an’s medicine—prepared exclusively for women. Fifty years’ success In relieving aches and pains of other weak and ail ing women is a good reason to believe that Cardul should help you, too. N. B.-—Write to: Ladies’ Advisory Dept..

Not all. however—O heavens, ho! some of the seed simply knocked off and quit at the first sight of their parent earth. The hack yard was a marvel, and when we began to dig up fur a garden, it tt** a sight to behold. The place had evident ly been filled up before it was filled in. with old debt is. consisting of all sorts of wearing; apparel arid trash of every de scription-pieces of board wire, cans and l’ni not exaggerating when 1 tell you that on* day l pulled out a pair of perfectly good overalls, a rainy day skirt, and sev eral feet of rubber hose. As we had to dig only four feet deep for a garden I'm afraid those things didn’t go all tlie way through to China, although 1 sent them in that direction." "What an awful foundation for a gar den," 1 remarked. “Oh, there was plenty of rock—half rotted that might have come from an an tedeluviap mine,” said Mr. Joblots, “and all the cast off material that the builders had discarded when they’d finished the house. Those are things, though, that you expect when you buy property that way. But that didn’t discourage me in the least. I was there to have a garden and have one 1 would even if in my dig gings about I discovered burled beneath the earth, an upright piano or a Chippen dale sideboard.” “Of course, the fic^t year," Mr. Joblots told me, "1 didn't have a ghost of a show to have a garden. L had to prepare the ground and do a lot of preliminaries and In the gullies I only planted beans anl peas, which tlie cows enjoyed, and a lit tie bed of lettuce, which was my only real pleasures of that summer, the pet I rabbits next door made way with in short order. The radishes and beets didn't | grow and if I'd been the onions that shot I up I’d have been ashamed to have shown i my face, but onions will do most *an> j thing. At the end of the first summer I was almost ready to give up. T dug up1 all the things that were left, and boughi several wagon loads of fertilizer, and sat l back all winter and calmly waited for spring to come." “And then?" I interfupted. "My clothes were soaked in perspira tion from the first day of April up to the last day of October," Mr. Joblots told me. “1 had the time of my life. I got a boy to help me wrork and plant the garden, who knew all about such things, and when one of my friends came out one Sunday to see me, and after looking the situation oveV, told me I was an idiot to try to raise Lima beans on solid rock, I promptly got a spade and turned up a lot of rich, black dirt, and showed him how beautifully they were sprouting. J told him 1 mean to grow vegetables light through that sub-strata of stuff—that heterogeneous conglomeration of every body’s debris, and right through rock, slate, tin and all. At least I thought I had a dependable foundation to hold the plants dowm." “What else did you plant besides beans and peas?" 1 asked, very much amused at Mr. Joblots' story of the garden which seemed quite too original to lose by a 'premature ending. » “I’d rather tell you how* much I spent on implements." said he. "All right," I agreed. "I want all the documents in evidence." "I bought S3 worth of tools." said Mr. Joblots, proudly, "consisting of a hoe, a rake, a mattock, a steel fork, a com bination digging and forking tool, and a dwarf set of garden tools. I almost forgot the pick handle. I found an old pick In the debris, and only had to buy a handle for it. I got ail the seed I needed for 11.10, and potato and onion sets were only 50 cents more. The hired boy required another investment of $3 a week, and with his astuteness I planted on the little lot four grape vines to begin with and 10 rows of lima beans: a 50 foot row* of early peas and 30 foot row of late peas; a 30 foot row* of snap beans; three hills of watermelons, a lied of beets, tur nips, radishes* and a bed of onions; four 50 foot rows of potatoes and a bed of parsley 10 feet square." "A 10 foot bed of parsley!" I gasped. "That’s enough parsley to season all the soup and salad in the world." "I sold every *q>rlg that I raised that i summer," said Mr. Joblots. "It was the best money making investment I had. This summer I will have that same bed of parsley, and I’m also going to have some thing I didn't have last summer—two rows of sweet corn the entire length of the lot. I have lettuce planted in the frame* that I made for my wife’s violets and the violets have been transplanted to a shel tered spot elsewhere. Another thing I'm going to have is a celery bed* Celery grows in muck, you know', and I’m raking nlI muck down to one end of the garden and fixing things so that all the drain age of the garden will go that way What's that—I’m a niuckraker? Yes, cer tainly I am. And a mud slinger, too, if you will. You ought to have seen me slinging it around getting ready to plant strawberries. Besides all this, I’m going to have some fine cantelopes and egg plant." "That's some garden." I said slangily. "I never heard of such a crazy quilt com bination on such a little plgce of ground." "I haven’t told you all yet," said Mr. Joblots. "We’ve got 50 chrysanthemum plants and lots of roses, and nasturtiums by the wholesale, which by the way hap pen to be the only things that ever came up out of 57 varieties of seed that Cncle Sam sent me. Come out and see us and witness for yourself what an up to date farmer <an do on 50 by 150 fe**t in the suburbs. Mrs Joblots will be glad to give you any other information that you want." I’m going to get Mrs. Joblots’ side of that garden story. I dare say it will be quite different, especially about that part concerning how Mr. Joblots gets tip at 5 o'clock in the morning to watch the celery sprout ami dig*! up the com to see how much it has grown since yesterday.

ASBURY BRILLIANT AFFAIR Afternoon Teas—Luncheons—Other Social Topics—Among the Hostesses—Birmingham Wom en Entertained in Washington—Mrs. William Jennings Bryan a Hostess for Mrs. Tomlinson—Other Notes » - I... T< •* marriage of Miss Mary Ware and Mr. Joseph Jefferson Asbut^’ was a bril liant event of last evening, taking place at the home of the bricfe’s mother, Mrs. Benjamin Leon Wyman, on Highland ave nue at 8:30 o’clock. The guests included several hundred friends of the family, an essemblage con spicuous in its representation of the best and most exclusive of social life in Bir mingham. The guests gathered while an orchestra, seated behind screening palms and foliage .massed in the rear of the re ception hall, played a beautiful pro gramme of nuptial music. The decorative appointments were superb. Not only the rooms but the verandas were embowered in white and softly tinted blossoms, and foliage was distributed in tlie most ex quisite .taste. The altar was arranged in the large al cove of the reception hall, where so often during other entertainments in this de lightful home a bower of blossoms and greenery lias proved the piece de resist ance in a cleverly planned scheme. Smilax was used in profusion here, and at either side great palms raised their broad leaves to form a high background of green. White roses in tall standards matched the pure white of the double rowr of white tapers high at, the back and luxurious clusters of pink hydrangeas hinted at the French motive so gracefully used through out the bridal arrangement of pink, brae,' green and white. White roses bloomed across the mantel, and in this apartment and in the library back of it, snowballs and dogwood blossoms in wide-mouthed vases helped to make it an ideal spring wedding. The dining room had an abundance of white roses and lilies of the valley. On the table, which was one of the loveliest ever seen at a Birmingham wedding, a broad centerpiece of orange blossoms, orchids ami lilies of the valley made a truly bridal motif. The drawing room was garnished with quantities of pink roses and sweet peas. This and all of the other rooms had canvas stretched across the floors, and the veranda was inclosed in canvas, which converted It into a de lightfully cozy parlor, with big snowball blossoms nodding from vasess on the tables among big easy chairs. An ice table was placed in the library. In the details of the wedding the French blue introduced into a couleur de rose and white made a novel and effective cos tume for the young w'omen of the party. As the 'processional was played the two pretty flower girls, Miss Josephine Evans and Miss Margaret Moore, advanced from the stairway and held the broad white ribbons to makd an aisle to the altar. Mr. George Yancey, Mr. Robert D. Curry, Mr. John Matthews and Mr. James Ware, the* bride’s brother, were tlie groomsmen, descending the stairway with the party alternately as bridesmaids and matrons entered. Miss Martha Robinson of Richmond and Miss Marianne Hamilton were the brides maids, and Mrs. Andrew Carnegie Ram say and Mrs. Otto II. Folley of Sumter, S. C., were matrons of honor. They were a pretty and patrician quartet of young women in their while lace gowns and tlte alternate blue and pink of their quaint ribbons. Their flowers were large clusters of white lilacs and pink roses. Miss Elizabeth Wyman, the young sls tetU-Bf the bride, was her maid of honor. She was attired for the wedding in shadow laces and a sash of blue ribbon, and she, too, carried white lilacs ami pink roses. Miss Ware was given in marriage by Dr. Wyman, and when she slowly de scended the stair to meet Mr. Asbury u» he approached the altar with his best man, Mr. Stanley Woodw'ard of New^York, there w’as a murmur of admiration from the guests who gathered close to hear the vows, for she never looked more lovely. The hand embroidered chiffon draperies of her white charmeuse gown, the grace ful arrangement of the duchess lace w'hieh embellished iw added distinction to the slender beauty of this charming bride, and her veil, shirred into a cap, caught about her head with a cornet of orange blossoms, gave an additional becoming ness to a perfect costume. Site carried a bouquet of lilies and orchids. A beau tiful marriage service was read by the Rev. Matthew Barnwau, rector of the Church of the Advent, and a reception followed. Dr .and Mrs. Wyman stood with Mr. and Mrs. Asbury as congratulations were showered upon them. Mrs. Wyman looked beautiful. Her gown was in the rose tint, which she w'ears to such advantage now that her hair is becoming silvered. A crystal robe was fashioned over the rose foundation, and her corsage bouquet nust* The Carriage You Can Safely Buy YOU need not be • mechanic to •elect a carriage which will laat through the two year* baby need* it.

April 17.—(Special.)—State Sen ator Thomas E. Kilby, who has just re turned from an extended absence from the jclty, during which time he visited Panama, Central and South American | cities, and spent several weeks in New York city, remains non-committal In re gard to his proposed race for torn lieu tenant governorship,^although lie states that he found a number of letters on his return home from friends who would be glad to see him enter the campaign. Several of'fals friends have urged him to make the race for governor, believing that in view of the excellent record he has established as a business man and as a lawmaker in the last legislature, and as twice mayor of Anniston, he would stand a good show of election. He says, however, that, even though he knew he could be elected, his business Interests would not permit of his assuming the of fice of governor at the present time. Mr. Kilby is president of the Anniston City National bank and of the Kilby Loco motive and Machine works In this city, besides the Kilby Frog and Switch com pany of Birmingham. He says that if lie tthould make the race he would stand for a strictly business administration, and would run on the same platform on which lie stood in making the race for the state senate. The chief plank in that platform declared in favor of working the state convicts on the public roads. Mr. Kilby says he believes that byr the application of backbone and business sense, Alabama has enough laws now on the statutes to meet all emergencies, and he does not be lieve the financial situation justifies an extra session of the legislature.

As I have said many times, I have no recipes for which X will vouch for putting up corn, x have canned corn and toma toes successfully, and 1 have prepared an excellent corn relish. I have also re ceived from correspondents directions for •yalting down" corn. But I know no way in which green corn on the cob can be satisfactorily canned at home. How to Make Pistachio Ice Cream “Can you furnish me with a recipe lor! making pistachio ice cream; also pistachio nuts? MRS. L. M. S." You are mistaken in thinking that pis tachio nuts are a “made dish." They are a pale green nut resembling an almond ami may be bought at any grocer's and at some confectionery stores. To make pis tachio ice cream blanch a quarter of a pound of these shelled nuts by pouring water over them, leaving them in this for 10 minutes, then stripping off the spins. Dry these nuts well between the folds of a clean dish towel, then grind to a pow der. Make an ordinary Ice cream (as for vanilla ice cream), omitting the flavor ing, and heat into this the ground nuts, adding enough green vegetable coloring to make it the desired shade of green. Turn into a freezer and freeze. Recipe for Dutch Apple Cake “Some time about last fall there was published in the Corner a recipe for Dutch apple cake. If you can furnish this recipe my mother would like to have it, as the one cut from the paper was lost. E. A. T." I do not know to which recipe you refer. So many directions for making apple cake have appeared in the Corner from time to time that I must ask you if you re member the initials of the person sending in the special recipe you wish. Perhaps some of our readers can supply your want. Hard Soap From Grease Scraps “I notice a recipe for hard soap made from dear grease. Can you publish one made from scraps of grease. READER OF YOFR CORNER." The scraps of grease can be used just an is the dear grease, but they must be clarified or “tried out" first. Cover th**| fat with water and let it boil bard, then | allow it to cool, and lift off the cake or j fat from the surface of the water, if not yet clean, cover with fresh water and j boil again and set ankle until cold before | removing the fat. This should be clean. | The sediment will settle to thg bottom of, the water. Recipe for a Good Cake “Will you kindly accept the following cake recipe, which Is good: First, warm crock well, then add one-quarter of a pound of butter. two cups sugRr (creamed), four eggs (adding one at a time). After the four eggs are in beat until the mixture Is light and creamy. Into three cups of sifted flour put two teaspoons of baking powder and a pinch ot salt. Add this t<> the first mixture al ternately with one cup of sweet milk and a teaspoonful of vanilla. This makes four nice layers. Bake In a medium oven 35 to 40 minutes. Beat hard for otie minute. Best iced with chocolate icing or fresh grated cocoa nut used with boiled icing. *'S. IS. B. We not only accept, but accept grate fully, the cake recipe yon so kindly send.

If too in convenient, kiqdly publish these in the Comer. MRS. W. B. K." t cannot supply you with a recipe for cooking lungs or lights of beef. Perhaps 1 am-over fastidious, but i fiave never been able to bring myself to the point of serv ing or eating “lights” cooked in any form.

Cover with cold water, put over the tire, and bring slowly to a boil. Simmer for four hours, then pour off the water, and cover with fresh milk, into which a pinch of baking soda has been stirred. Simmer gently at the side of the range for ten minutes, thicken with a paste of two teaspoons of flour rubbed into the same quantity of butter. Season to taste, and just before serving add gradually the yolk of u beaten egg and remove from the fire. To cook stuffed beef's heart, wash and clean the heart thoroughly and stuff with a good dressing prepared as for stuffing a fowl. Pack this in well and sew or tie the heart up securely. Lay in a roasting pan. sprinkle with a chopped onion and a little salt and pepper, and pour a cup of squp stock over and around it. (’over and roast until done, then uncover and brown. Transfer to a hot platter and thicken the gravy left in the pan and pour over the heart. For mayonnaise dressing have all the Incredients cold.
