If lnaiiure is not available in generous iuantities, a compost lieap will help to supply the needed humus, and commer cial fertilizers will provide the plant food. A compost heap should have a place in every garden, any way. It is made simply by throning in a" pile all the leaves and garden refuse which conies to hand, with the addition of some ma nure, including that from the poultry yard. It may he turned occasionally, and when thoroughly decomposed, spread on the garden. It is a waste of time for the man with a little garden to try mixing his ferti liers. Let him rather buy a complete commeicial fertilizer, relying on the ail Nice of any honest seedsman as to brand. Probably, the best way to use it is to scatter most of it broadcast and to harrow it in lightly, but to reserve a lit tie to use in the hills and drills, working it into the soil so that it will not come dnectly into contact with the seeds. Then, the young plants will have ample nourishment close at hand to gie them a good start, ami the roots will find more waiting for them as they burrow in all directions through the earth. Plants send their rootlets a surprising distance in search of food and water, and these root lets show almost human intelligence in traveling around stones and other ob structions to gain their end. Nitrate of soda is a fertilizer that acts almost immediately and is used chiefly for foliage plants and where - (piick growth is wanted. It is a fine stimulant for rhubarb, asparagus, spinach and kale. No fertilizer will atone for caie lessness and neglect. Liquid liianuio may be used in much the same fashion as nitrate of soda, but in a more general way and for all sorts of products. It offers one of the best means to keep up the flagging spirits of the garden in a dry season and when ever growth seems to lag. It is easily made by filling a cheesecloth bag with fresh manuro and suspending it in a tub or cask filled with water. Many gardens need lime occasionally; for it sweetens the soil and helps to make plant food uvnilable. Unexpected results nro often obtained from fivo bushels for n garden GO x 100 feet. Flowers as well as vegetables need feeding. This is particularly true of roses, which seldom get as much nourish ment as they really crave. It may open your eyes to rose-garden possibilities to use a heavy mulch of manure around the plants, spring and fall, lightly forking it into the soil if its visible presence seems pathetically objectionable. A sprinkling of wood ashes and bone meal added will help, and just as the buds are swelling, a little nitrate of soda may be supplied. You ean 't expect to have good roses if you starve the plnnts. It is the same with raspberries and blackberries and more especially with grajx?s. The latter are very heavy feed ers and thrive on stnblo manure, which should not bo dug deeply in the ground, but just covered with soil; and, as the roots travel far, the manure should be scattered in a wide radius. Prepared animal manures so treated as to destroy weed seeds and concen trated to reduce the bulk for convenient transportation and use can be had of most any seedsman or garden supply house. These nro perfectly safe in t ho hands of the amateur gardener and being dry, finely pulverized and highly con centrated are especially convenient and effective. They eliminate the many objectionable features of stable manures and solve, the problem of supply of this most necessary element in gnrden success where manures for the lawn and garden are often difficult to obtain. This about sums up tho fertilizer ques tion so fnr as the home gardener need to bother his head, except for one point : In September, it is a fine plan to plant rye to grow through the winter and be plowed under in the spring. The hens will enjoy it when the ground is bare, and it will help to fill the ground with humus that word to be remembered. 1L.J..1. m 1: In the Kitchen cannot be assured unless the linen used there is absolutely clean ; and is 1 any linen absolutely clean that has been used even once?
