Impressive results from the applies
tlon of science to practical agriculture
are shown In a report recently given
to the county commissioners of Idaho
regarding the extension work In that
state fer 1919. A saving of $10.27 for
every dollar expended in the exten
sion activities was made. The total
expenditure was $274,509, including
&e amounts the counties provided
'Awn their own funds and the money
aewlved from state and federal
mrces. The savings resulting direct
ly from this outlay were figured at
In all more than 2,100 demonstra
tions were held during the year and
'were attended by more than 22,000
.persons. In calculating the savings
Unseated above only the Increases re
volting directly from these demonstra

taken of the large benefits arising
from the spread of Information to

They Will Return Abundantly In

Big Vegetable Gardeners See No Way
of Obtaining Enough Labor te

(Prepared by the United Stat is Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
One way of reducing the cost of
living Is open to every man, woman
and child who can get the use of an
Idle plot of ground. That way Ilea
through the planting and cultivation
of a home garden a Thrift garden.
War gardens played their part In the
great mobilization of resources In
wartime Thrift gardens now have
their own big Job In helping house
holds to feed themselves.
The reasons for Thrift gardens are
many and various. The same reasons
that existed last year and the year be
fore still are present. Thrift gardens
will produce food where nothing other
wise would be produced, they will re
duce family food bills, they will return
abundantly In proportion to the time
and effort devoted to them. But add
ed to these reasons is another one pe
culiar to this year.
Less Commercial Planting.
Reports to the United States de
partment of agriculture indicate that
the plantings by commercial vegetabla
gardeners will be materially reduced
this year, because the commercial gar
deners see no way of obtaining enough
labor to conduct their usual opera
tions. The commercial gardeners
claim that tliey have paid high wages
in endeavors to keep up production,
but now have reached the point where
the returns will not Justify the con
tinuance of this expense. At least,
that is the report reaching the depart
ment of agriculture from seed mer
chants, whose operations at this sea-

to the Tillers.
son are regarded as a good Indication
of what conditions will be a month
or two from now.
If the reduction of commercial gar
dening becomes fact, the obvious re
sult will be fewer vegetables and
higher prices. The logical remedy
lies partly In home gardens. This Is
a remedy, moreover, that will work
no harm even If the commercial acre
age should be up to normal, as any
surplus of fresh vegetables may be
saved by canning, drying, and other
means of conservation and the surplus
kept so that It will be useful next fail
and winter.
Many More Gardens Needed.
Thousands of families learned the
value of home gardens In wartime.
United States department of agricul
ture specialists believe It essential
that these families Interest be main
tained and that other thousands be
added to the home-food producers. .
"Now Is the time to begin making
plans for your 1020 Thrift gardens,"
these specialists declare. "First, lo
cate a piece of suitable land; second,
make your plan ; third, get your seeds ;
fourth, start work at the earliest pos
sible mement."
A request to the. United States de
partment of agriculture, Washington,
D. O., will bring a booklet that will
tell how to plan your garden, how
much seed to buy, how to get the land
In shape for cultivation, how to take
every other step In the process of
making your back yard or some other
vacant lot help feed you.
Noxious Plants Cut Down and Turned
Under Excellent Fertilizer
for Garden.
Weeds In the back yard or on that
vacant lot next door are an asset to
the gardener, for he knows, or should
know, that these weeds, cut down and
turned under In the garden plot, mean
fertilizer for his soil. Turn the rank
grass under with the wheel hoe and
cultivate ft once to destroy the

Six of the finest native musicians in
all the Hawaiian Islands sailed from
Honolulu on May 19th on the steam
ship "Maui," to fill their first Ameri
can engagement. They will appear
on the Coit Alber Premier circuit in
Indiana, Michigan, Kentucky, Ohio.
The company is a hand-picked
(roup of unspoiled native instru
mentalists and vocalists, all of whom
are prominent in musical circles of
the Islands. They were chosen for
the especial tour by Mildred Leo
Clemens, cousin of Mark Twain, who
visited the Islands early this year, and
following the Instructions from the
Colt-Alber offices, engaged the finest
musicians ' available. A cablegram
from Miss Clemens on the day of de
parture stated that her company will
be the finest organization which has
ever toured America. They are real
Hawaiians and real musicians.

The company sailed from Honolulu oni
the 19th of May, and Miss Clemens,'
who is an authority on Hawaii and!
its people, frankly states she has the
finest company which has ever left'
the Islands. 1

"Aloha" had a new meaning for
Miss Clemens. The final concert took

The engagement is a splendid fea

lived in the United States most of
their lives. The continuous popular
