Among the ideas presented by

gardening; the need of a definite

the longest growing season and
hence the facilities for having a
variety of fresh vegetables such
as asparagus, greens, roots, etc;
the desire of O. A. C. to assist in
building up the quality of the
different kinds of seeds; the
money unnecessarily lost by in
sects such as the cabbage worm
and others; the practicability of
ionserving gardens by the use of
spray and the definite control of
cabbage worms by shaking over
the plants a dust composed of the
following: 40 per cent Tobaccv

per cent Arsenate of Lead.

EIGHTY-SIXTH ST. TO
AND GRADED STREET
Residents along 86th street, between
Woodstock avenue and 65th avenue,
have started the ball rolling by pe
titioning for concrete sidewalks and
other street improvements, and it is
to be hoped their example will be
speedily followed by every other
street in the district. The Mt. Scott
district is the worst off in the way
of streets improvements of any other
part of the city, and many country
towns put us to shame. Lack of
sidewalks and paving is the greatest
hindrance to progress and growth in
this part of Portland. Real estate
dealers say many people come out
with a view to buying or locating
here, and return in disgust after
viewing the vista of mud and water
between 82nd and 92nd streets.
The council has already approved
the petition for the improvement of
86th street, which is to consist of
grading the street to the proper sub
grade, constructing concrete side
walks, concrete curbs, wood cross
walks concrete driveways and laying
concrete gutter pipe.
G. K. Howitt was the lowest bidder
on the work, his bids being as fol
Excavation, earth, per cubic yard,
fl.15; concrete sidewalk, per square
foot, 20 cents; concrete curb, 55 cents
per lineal foot; wood crosswalks,
three feet w*ide, per lineal foot, fl;
gutter pine, concrete, per lineal foot,
fl.75; concrete driveway, six inches
thick, per square foot, 35 cents; wood
crosswalk, two feet wide, per lineal
foot, 75 cents. The engineer's esti
mate of the probable total cost of the
improvement is »7385.
The cost of the improvement will
be assessed upon all lots, parts there
of and parcels of land lying within
the following boundaries:
Beginning at a point on the south
line of Woodstock avenue S. E., 100
feet west of the west line of 86th
street S. E.; thence east along the
