The most important things In the successful use of a hotbed, so far as construction is concerned, are: First, the proper preparation of the manure, and, second, the use of an improved style of sash. It is a simple matter to dig a' pit, throw into this some ma nure, cover with a few inches of rich Cross section of hotbed showing man ure and layer of soil above. soil and then build the frame over these. But if the hotbed is to grow plants uniformly it is quite necessary that the manure which furnishes the heat be given attention BeTcie plant ing time. Horse manure is usually the best material to use, for it contains about the right amount of moisture. It it is mixed with a little bedding that has soaked up the liquid manure, so much the better. The manure is piled in a rick, keeping the top level, to a height of about three feet. This is done a week or so before the hotbed is made j i i UP. 1 noil every turrc " pile is turned with a fork .and at the same time mixed, so that the portions which have begun heating are distrib uted throughout the pile. This done two or urea umes wui onng about a uniform fermentation In the whole pile. : The manure most not be used until this condition la brought about . Then It la thrown Into the pit dug for the DurDosa. or ft mn tut niauui on top of the ground and thoroughly tramped. The frame Is built over it ana lour ucirai (H nca sou (not too wet) is spread over for the seed bed. The hotbed u usually mad six feet wide and as long as desired. The important feature about the sash la to have the bars as small and as far apart aa possible without mak ing the sash too weak.

The manure in this case was in a pit. It should always extend a foot beyond the sides and ends of the frame. A south or south cast exposure is preferable to any other, and a windbreak is quite an ad dition to their heat-retaining powers. Church What are those English suffragettes after, anyway?

Two years ago the Missouri State Horticultural Society, under the aus pices of the Missouri State Board of Horticulture, held a strawberry Con gress at Neosho, Mo. The strawberry growers of the State have been urging the Board to have another Congress this year where they can discuss the strawber ry situation. In answer to this de mand the Board of Horticulture has decided to hold a Strawberry Con gress at Neosho April 15th and 16th of this year. The program has not been made up yet, but the preliminary -arrangements have been made, which confine the addresses and discussions of the first day to the production of straw berries. This would, of course, in- clude - strawbenysoHs, varieties, dis- eases, cultivation, etc. The speakers of the second day will take up the Commercial Side of strawberry growing, discussing under that head, picking, grading, packing, marketing, refrigeration, etc. The Strawberry Congress is held before the picking season so that the growers and shippers may have the benefit of any information gained at the meeting in taking care of their crop this season. The programs for the meeting will be distributed in a short time. The secretary of the State Boarn of Horticulture will be glad to furnish further information of this meeting to any one who is interested. Ashleigh P. Boles, Secretary. Pleasant Valley Items. , W. L.

A part of this should be used in paying postage on the answer papers and the remainder remitted here to help pay for the diplomas. Arrangements will be made for the examination at other places if the de mand is sufficient. Nine month terms will be given more time. Miss Gerda Judy of Dixie School reports the following as spelling all the words in a two weeks contest: Gladys and Pearl Blackmon, , May Fink, Ona William, Clyde and Edwin Ashbaugh, Roy Clark and Esther Dalgetty. Adriaii has just been placed on the approved, list as a first class four year high school. Mr. B. E. Parker as superintendent has made a good fight on this and we are pleased to know thst he has won and all Adrian has reasons to feel proud of him and the teachers working with him. They were not able to accommodate all the pupils who wished to attend so they fitted up a room out in the corridors. They do not solicit students but have always insisted on their superintend ent taking an active interest in all things pertaining to country work and teacher's meeting of all kinds and as a result the people in all the surrounding country is brought in close touch with the school work of the town. It is but a matter of time until they will have to enlarge their building or erect a new one. We congratulate them. The State Board of Health has passed a ruling forbidding the useof a common drinking cup and common towel in a school or school room. This applies to country schools as well as town and will do away with the water bucket aitd require a tank or fountain.
