Of The Garden
To Protect Year Flowers from Jack
' HEN Jack Frost has visited the
garden and checked or blighted
the vegetation, the flower lover will
consider what shall be done for the
various plants and shrubs. Jack Frost
usually makes himself decidedly evi
dent in this vicinity about the first of
November, but farther north his ar
rival may be expected earlier. Differ
ent plants demand different treatment.
Such flowers as peonies and holly
hocks will come up again the follow
ing year if they are properly protected
during the Winter, while others like
cannas and dahlias, which are more
accustomed to warmer climes, must
have their roots or bulbs dug up and
stored in a cellar.
Hardy Perennials. Hardy perennials
that are expected to live througn the
Winter should be covered with a good
coating of manure or other litter to a
depth of three or four inches. This
will hold the frost in the ground dur
ing the Winter and keep the plant
from alternately freezing and thawing;
In colder regions the manure will keep

depth that its water supply would be
cut off and the plant would perish.
This treatment is good for peonies,
larkspur, hollyhocks, columbines, iris,
paltycodones and perennial poppies.
Cannas, Dahlias, etc. As soon as the
tops of cannas, dahlias, gladiolas, ca
ladiums and similar plants are killed
by the frost, the roots or bulbs should
be dug and stored in a cellar where
the temperature will remain about 55
degrees and should never go below 50
or above 60 degrees. No more enth
should be shaken from the clumps of
cannas and dahlias than la necessary
to remove them from the ground. The
plants may be placed on racks or in
slat boxes so the air may circulate
freely through them. No frost must
reach the roots, nor must they become
too warm or dry.
With bulbous plants, such a caladl

The vast amount of social better

THE apostle of this doctrine is still
actively practicing " what he
preaches. The latest word, from Mr.
Fletcher Is full of sensible, and whole
some, suggestions and advice for any
one who cares to eat. and especially so
to those who are guilty of exceeding
the speed limit in eating. Mr. Fletcher
"About five years ago, I gave to a
leading magazine the story of my feel
ing younger at 60 than at 40. I did not
realize that I could feel better at 65
than I did at 60, or at 50, and most
certainly better than I did at 40. For
it 'was at this latter age that I stood
practically at the edge of the grave,
with my friends alarmed at my near
ness to the human scrapheap, and with
the Insurance companies giving me
the cold shoulder. It was then that I
discovered what - has universally to
become known as 'Fletcherlsm.
"Since that-.time, and particularly
during the last five years, I have seen
one friend after another of my forty-to-fifty-year
period go out of my life,
friends who, compared to me, were
vigorous in health and alert In mind;
while I am here more decidedly here
than ever and I yield to no one In my
declaration that I consider myself the
most fortunate man alive. I am for
tunate because I . have personally
tested my theories of eating and have
translated them into actualities, and I
have seen them adopted by thousands
of others who have during these years
written and told me of the efficiency
of the rules in their case.
"I consider myself fortunate because
I am splendidly well: I rarely have a
headache, and never without knowing
the cause. I never feel tired. I can do
better work at 65 than I could at 60.
and I can relish and digest anything
my nature calls for and my appetite
"Of course It Is needless to say that
I continue to believe la Tletcherism'
more than I ever did, and I live by
"Here are some of them:
"1. Never eat except when good and
"2. Never eat when worried badly
"3. Eat only what really tastes
good to you.
"4. Exhaust all the good taste from
all food, liquid or solid, or mushy, be
fore swallowing. Don't swallow any
food until It first Is like pulp In your
mouth and has been tasted fully. When
this is so the food will swallow Itself.
"5. ' Leave a little bit of the appetite
as a 'nest egg for the next meal.
"6. Eat always somewhat less than
you can; but eat what you do a little
more, and so get far better results In
the way of both pleasure and nutri
tion. It Is not how much you eat that
does you good. It Is how you eat what
"7. If you have only five minutes in
which to eat, and do not expect to have
another chance for a long time, don't
hurry. Be just as deliberate as if you
had an hour In which to eat. Taste
completely each morsel that you do
eat. Remember that taste is the best
aid and assurance of digestion, and
digestion is the measure of nutrition.
A small amount of food thoroughly
masticated Is better than much food
which is swallowed unmasticated."
"Don't believe folks, please, when
they say 'Fletcherlzlng means that
you must count forty or fifty when
you put a morsel In your mouth, be
fore you swallow it. Or that you must
chew each morsel forty or fifty times.
Don't eat by such a yardstick: use
your own common sense.
" 'Fletcherlsm', as applied to nourish
ment is summed up In this convenient
rule: Eat what you like and when you
like; only eat it rightly: that is
"Tou must be cheerful while eating1.
Better miss a meal or two and let the
mental fog clear up as it surely will do
if you starve it. Worry and anger
will disturb digestion. But remember,
these emotions start in the mind, and
can be and are controlled by the mind.
So here are two rules:
"1. Mind the mind.
"2. Mind the mastication.
"And. believe me. nature will do the
rest. Appetite then will be able to act
in normal manner."
Cant Lean to Love Him.
EAR MISS BLAKE: I admire a
certain gentleman, but as he is
somewhat shorter than I It seems that
I cannot learn to love him very much.
Please tell me whether his height ought
to cause me to feel that way. He has
all the qualties that I wish to find in
a young man, but his height is the only
thing that I can. find fault with.
MISS R. S."
Tou surely do not love the young
man as much as you think, you do or
you would not find his smallness of
stature such an obstacle to your happl
ness. Try not seeing him a while. That
will show you more quickly tnan any
thing else the true state of your affec
tions. I think that you probably will
find that If the choice comes between
giving him up and forgetting his short
ness you will forget all about his snort
Hasn't Met Her Family.
"Dear Miss Blake: I am engaged to
a young girl of 22, whom I met in col
lege. Her parents are not in town, but
she is living with a married brother
whom I have never met. She has asked
me to go and visit her and meet her
brother. Would it be right to go and
meet him there, or would it be better, to
meet him in some other place? Don't
you think it Improper to visit her at
home without meeting the family be
fore? They are busy all the timo, and
so am I. PERPLEXED."
It depends entirely upon what you
mean by visiting. If you mean merely
that the girl wishes you to call upon
her or to come to spend the day, there
is no reason why you should not accept
her Invitation. But If you were plan
ning an extended visit of two or three
days it would be a little more comfort
able for you to meet her family before
hand. I should go and call upon her. if
I were you, and meet her family and
Borne other time make your visit.

JUST THINK, AMIE
Here I Am With a New
"All the rest of the girls that I
associate with have theirs. But I have
made up my mind that I am not going
another week without one. I was out
at the Skating Rink yesterday and saw
Mildred there, and she was so beauti
fully dressed in a Gabardine made In
Military Style, and to save my life I
could not help asking her where she
bought it. What do you think she
said? CHERRY'S. Tea, in the Pittock
Block. It was one of those garments
reduced from $25 to 114.95. And, say.
you should hear her tell about the
beautiful broadcloth suits, the velvet
combination dresses, all reduced to such
low prices. So I have made arrange
ments for her to go with me to
CHERRY'S Wednesday so I can get

could give you more pleasure and make
you more thankful than a nice new
suit, waist, set of furs or a
beautiful hat for Thanksgiving? Very
well. I'll meet you at Tenth and Wash

"No. I was not thinking of that
trait. But you have heard of the way
ostriches stick their heads In the sand
and think they are hidden, when all
the time the rest of their hideous, un
gainly body Is in full view?"
The Old Maid nodded.
"She reminded me of that trait of
the ostrich. She refused to see certain
faults of her own or else thought that
she had cleverly covered them up and
so evidently believed nobody else saw
them, when all the time they were as
plain as the nose on your face. For
instance, she really had a downright
malicious streak in her. She told a
very unkind story about some one. but
prefaced it by saying it was too good
a joke to keep. It was no Joke at all.
But she Just wanted to cover up her
desire to tattle. And so she tried to
make us believe she was entirely Inno
cent of any such intention or else so
guileless that she really thought her
story a Joke."
"You often run across people like
that," agreed the Old Maid. "I heard
a woman say the other day. It's awful
selfish of me to sit here 'and eat all

HOW PARIS STYLES MAKE .
MUCH HAIR FROM LTTTLE
You have noticed the prevailing hair
styles, which are Parisian, make it im
possible to use false hair because of
the simple lines which conform to the
natural shape of the head. It there
fore becomes necessary to make your
own hair look as heavy as possible.
This is not a difficult task If you are
careful to keep it perfectly clean. In
washing the hair it is not advisable to
use a makeshift, but always use a
preparation made for shampooing only.
You can enjoy the best that Is known
for about three cents a shampoo by
getting a package of canthrox from
your druggist; dissolve a teaspoonful
in a cup of hot water and your sham
poo Is ready. After its use the hair
dries rapidly with uniform color. Dan
druff, excess oil and dirt are dissolved
and entirely disappear. Your hair will
be so fluffy that it will look much
heavier than It is. Its lustre and soft
ness will also delight you, while the
stimulated scalp gains the health which
insures hair growth. Adv't.
