Dates Back Centuries.
Long before the present drastic spir
it concerning enemy aliens showed it
self in Great Britain, a shop door In
Bond street carried written large the
announcement that “no person of Ger
man birth, whether naturalised or not.
is permitted to enter these premises.”
It was of course In the nature of an
outer and visible sign of un inward
and patriotic grace, but one wondered
on reading that notice how on earth
the owner of the premises could tell
whether his order got obeyed or not.
j Curiosity, however, did not ge so
j fnr as to Impel Inquiry in fhe matter,
j but now that the spirit of the Bond
! street shopman is shared by the whole
nation, it might be quite worth while
; for officials of several of the govern-
I nient departments to get a little Inf Or
i n ation from him on “how he does It."

8ource of Timber Shifted.
1 Shipbuilders in Maine are bringing
, timber for supplying their yards from
Oregon. This, a few years ago, would
have been regarded as another In
stance of carrying coals to Newcastle.
Time was when Maine had timber
enough for its own purposes and to
spare. There is, perhaps, no occasion
for alarm at the present time, but
would it not be well, even now, for
Maine to begin thinking of conserving
soil of the Aroostook? To have to go
out of the state for timber is sad, but
to have to look elsewhere for potatoes
would be terrible.—Christian Science

HOME TOWN
HELPS.
COMMUNITY LIFE IS BEST
Under That System Evsry Citizen Hat
an Equal Interest in His
Own Heme Town.
Community life Is the Ideal life.
People have more time to spend In
and about their homes and as a re
sult take greater Interest in the de
velopment of their immediate neigh
borhood. They are more congenial and
neighborly; they take greater pride
In keeping their homes and yards In
good condition; they are contented,
more progressive and incidentally
more prosperous; thtir children are
raised and educated In the proper
moral environment; they associate
with good companions and grow up to
be sound, healthy, clear-thinking men
and women of the type that mnke the
best citizens.
Much more could be said of the
community proposition, but I believe
[ have said sufficient to prove beyond
a doubt that the development of com
munities on a broad, systematic basis
will have a tendency to increase the
number of home lovers and home
owners.
Itenl estate companies should avoid
is much as .possible the placing of a
mere allotment on the market. It
takes considerable time, trouble and
money to work on the community plan,
but the results achieved make the ex
£a efTort and expense well worth
while.—Ex change.

*lf the garden Is not neglected too
long It can be rehabilitated uguln to
some extent, but tills means a long,
hard job, which Is not a pleasant thing
in hot weather. On the other hand, If
u little Judicious work Is done at fre
quent intervals the weeds and pests
can l>e kept down—and so the garden
kept up—without burdensome effort.
Never let the weeds grow tall. Kill
them with some kind of cultivating
tool when they are little, or, still bet
ter. by stirring the ground from time
to time before they appear at all; for
you may be sure that If the ground Is
not stirred frequently they will appear.
Do not let the pests get a start. It Is
safe to use the arsenical sprays on late
cabbages, cauliflowers and tomatoes.
No part of the late cabbages thus far
grown will be eaten, and furthermore,
they develop from the Inside so
that even if arsenic Is used on them
lnte, the edible portion Is protected by
the coarse outer leaves. Cauliflower
may be so sprayed until the curd be
gins to form. Anything that Is peeled
may he sprayed. Totnntles may either
be peeled or washed and thus freed
from auy dangerous effects.
Fatal to Neglect Garden.
Neglect of the garden during the hot

W. E. Lommel of Purdue university,
assistant county agent leader. In
churge of garden work. More work In
the garden Is necessary now than nt
any other time of the year, U full
value from earlier efforts Is expected.
Enthusiasm of the war gardeners must
continue till frost.
“Vegetables require moisture and
food for their proper development, and
the food is not available for plant use
If water is not-present In the soil,” said
Mr. Lommel. “A good supply of soli
moisture in the garden, therefore, Is
of vital importance. In watering, soak
the soil thoroughly, as frequent light
sprinklings do more harm than good.

the porch. “What did you say, Ruth?”
she demanded.

playthings and smiled her most allur
