Major-General Kobert Alexander.
Vollrath Strong in Praise.
Extracts from letters written by
these officers which are highly com
mendatory of Colonel May's work, are
as follows:
From Brigadier-General Vollrath,
Bncyrus, O.
"I desire to express to you my ap
preciation of your services as they
came under my observation and part
of the time under my direct command.
In the various positions held by men
in the 41st division I had peculiar op
portunities for observing the effect of
the unfortunate adverse sentiment in
certain quarters with reference to the
national guard and the officers that
came into the service from that source
and I congratulate you upon being the
only national guard regimental com- ;
mander in the division who success- ,
fully, and in an eminently satisfactory
manner, retained his position through- ;
out the entire emergency.
"Under my own observation and com
mand, while In charge of the division,
every requirement placed upon you
was met promptly, efficiently and
satisfactorily. The discipline of your
command was always good and dis
cipline was maintained without harsh
ness. T especially appreciated the easy
tact with which you handled a situa
tion In which many another officer
would have resorted to harsh methods.
The work of the division in France
was highly commended in a letter from
the commander in chief, of which I
have a copy. In this work you bore
large and laborious share.
Work Done Back of Line.
While asa division we did not get
fnto actual combat, we functioned as
the backbone of the whole fighting
line and the work we accomplished in
keeping this line at full strength will
always be regarded as of the highest
importance in connection with the op
eration of the American armies In
France. Had the war continued, as we
anticipated, into the summer of the
present year, we would all probably
have been sent to the front where I
am certain you would have given a
good account of yourself."
Brigadier-General Scott of Fort
Oglethorpe, Ga., writes in part as fol
lows: "I wish to say o you that of all my
relations with officers in France none
were more cordial or more satisfactory
than with you. While in command of
base section 2. Bordeaux, your regi
ment doing military police duty there,
it was a continual source of satisfac
tion to know that there was a well-behaved,
well-organized and well-disciplined
and courteous bunch of young
fellows. I always felt that they did
their duty up, to the handle and in a
just and courteous manner. After they
had gone I heard many remarks from
people there that they wished the 16Zd
was back.
'I recall when your regiment was
relieved .md started to the front, how
delighted you were and how 1 re
gretted to lose-you. When I was re
lieved from duty .with the base section
and sent to command the 41st division
J found your regiment there, largely
skeletonized and performing duties o?
training replacements to be sent to
the front. When a large batch of green
troops arrived from the United States
and was sent for training to your regi
ment I threw the matter off my mind,
feeling that they would be properly
. and efficiently trained.
All Want to See FlgHtlnc
0f course this regiment wanted
service at the front and often I recall
your desire to be there, but those in
authority willed it otherwise and I
Know wnat a disappointment It was
to you and the regiment. However, I
felt all the time that the work which
your regiment was dQing there was
done more efficiently than any new
regiment could have done it and for
that reason I was glad to see you re
Major-General Alexander wrote from
Camp Mills in part as follows;
"The idea that there was anything
against you in r ranee is perfectly
absurd. You were simply one of the
unfortunate officers who were placed
in most important positions in the
S. O. S. and remained there during the
active operations because they could
not be replaced. Personally, 1 would
nave oeen very giad to have had you

matter of fact I think the country at
large and myself in particular owe
you recognition for your services.

Dear Friends: The back-yard garden

corner grocery as the commissary de

most of us, especially when we know
that these vegetables were paid for by
our own lame backs, hand blisters and

and was told, when he asked what we
did with them all "We eat what we
can and what we can't we can." Which
so delighted him as a specimen of
American humor that he retailed it at
home as "so funny. They eat what they
can, and the rest they tin, by Jove. Why
don't you laugh?"
Which reminds me that the other
day I asked for some quart cans of a
most intelligent grocer, who assured
me that ho had none. Upon my point
ing to them on the shelf he informed
me that those were glass jars so
names vary in our own country.
Now Is tne Time to Can.
But whether you speak of cans or
Jars or "tins," now is fhe time to obey
the spirit of the phrase "We eat what
we can and what wo can't we can."
Bring 'in the family washboiler and
wrnh It m. fnrfiillv that no taste Of
suds remain in it, as the water is liable
to boil into your cans. For the same
reason be very careful not to use wood
slats, etc., under the cans In the boiler,
whose sap will boil out and flavor the
water in the boiler. I have wire racks
for my cans, which serve as handles to
move them by and keep them off the
bottom. These did not cost much and
will last a generation if cared for.
Be sure your empty cans are most
thoroughly sterilized in water that is
really boiling, and that all funnels,
spoons, cups, etc., you use, as well as
the tops, are dipped into this rapidly
boiling water before use.
Buy new covers each year. The dozen
package of the "Economy" caps has
full directions for cold-pack canning of
all fruits and vegetables, and this is
the method always used for vegetables.
Do not slight any step, it is all impor
tant, especially the most careful steril
ization of all utensils in boiling water,
and leaving the cans in water that is
really boiling the full time recom
mended. Do not wait to get your full boiler
full of one vegetable. Put in a few
cans of peas, a few of beans, a few of
the last young beets, if you have some
yet uneaten, etc. As gas costs money
and you might as well get the full use
f it, if you have yet vacant space
buy some cheap beef or any other meat
and cook and process that according
to directions. It is "mighty handy-
have it ready for a picnic or un
expected company, and long cooking
renders the tough meat tender. Be sure
to put up Plenty of soup stock also.
Continuing our recent discussion or
the summer culture of vegetables, we
have considered all vegetables In al
phabetical order down to peppers, so
will begin with them today.
Raining-- Peppers.
Peppers need a well-tilled rich soiL
The general culture is the same as for
egg-plant and the plants need as much
heat to produce them. Guano, hendung
or any other bird manure hoed into the
soil when the plants are about six
Inches high will wonderfully Increase
he yield and improve the quality ol
the fruit.
They are used green at any size de
sired, in salads; as containers of mixed
chopped vegetables pickled and known
as mangoes or filled with chopped
meats, etc.. and baked as stuffed pep
pers and in other ways. If we learn to
use them more commonly we will find
them a welcome addition to themenu.
When left to mature they ripen into
brilliant scarlet and are used then
in salads, pickles, etc. They may be
canned for use in winter salads. The
little firey red peppers are dried and
used for seasoning in winter.
Potatoes In Summer.
Everyone who knows anything about
gardening knows how to raise potatoes
thinks he does. Tet the fact re
mains that many home gardens prove
to be "mighty small potatoes. The
essentials for a good yield of good
sized potatoes are, first, hoe well, keep-
ng a good dust mulch, but do not hill
up in this climate.
Second Never irrigate (or water)
after they first come into blossom. At
this time give them a good soaking
once, then loosen the top soil as soon
as possible.
Third Watch for potato hugs ana
dust with Paris green, etc, if any ap
pear. Never let them get the least
start, as this means so much to the
state and northwest generally as well
as to ourselves. All remedies given
against insects and diseases of pota
toes should be energetically applied, as
potatoes are the most valuable food
crop we raise in our gardens. Early
potatoes are ripe now and may be left
in the ground and dug as wanted, but
if they are all dug now to make room
for another crop or for some other rea
son, they will keep best if covered with
straw or dried grass in a cool, dry,
shady shed until autumn weather sets
Pumpkin and Squash.
These both thrive best in a warm.
sandy loam and a keg, pail or large
can with nail holes in the bottom, sunk
near each hill and filled often with
water to seep into the ground grad
ually Is very beneficial to the growth
of the vines.
When there Is danger of their not
maturing the vines should be pruned
as described for melons. Confine each
plant to about three runners and cut
off the ends.
If your squash or pumpkin vines
threaten to take up too much room in
your garden they can be trellised up
on the fence or other support like any
other vines, being sure that your sup
port is strong enough to hold up the
heavy fruit.
The? should be cultivated often
enough during the summer o keep the
soil loose and to retain moisture near
the surface. Care should be taken that
the plants are not injured during cul
Summer squash should soon be ready
for eating. If you have more than you
need as a vegetable, it makes good
"pumpkin pies" and may be canned to
be ready for this at any time. It is
recommended that summer squash be
harvested when they are so young and
tender that seeds and skin can be eaten
when cooked. In this state they can
be boiled or steamed or cut in slices
and fried like egg plant.
Winter varieties should remain on
the vines until they become firm and
hard. The . control of Insect enemies
has been given previously.
Radish In Summer.
Radish Is a hardy, quick-growing crop
which needs rich soil, plenty of mois
ture and a cool climate for its best de
velopment. So as you replant radish
through the summer plant It by some
vegetable that needs much water and
on the north or east side of a row of
other vegetables, where your radishes
will be partially shaded. One or two
applications of nitrate of soda worked
into the soil near the row helps their
development wonderfully. The white

Growing; Rhubarb.
If you set out your rhubarb this sea
son you have only to keep It growing,

the" first summer. None of the plants
should be allowed to produce seed, how

the hill, thus compelling them to reach
up for light and eend up tender, well
blanched long stalks.
It is always in order to enrich the
rhubarb with a good dressing of
manure, working some of It in around
the roots. The richer the soil and the
deeper it 1s stirred the better your
rhubarb will grow. In general, it re
quires the same care you give potatoes.
Ihe vigor and fruitfulness of the
plants of one season depend upon the
spread of the leaves of the preceding
season. For this reason, after the cut

Swiss Chard.
Swiss chard, also called spinach beet
or sea-kale beet. Is another of the pot
herb plants used for "greens." It is a
variety of beet having large, thick, ten
der leaves and a broad, white midrib.
This midrib is cut out of the leaves and
cooked and served Just like asparagus.
wnne tne remainder or the leaves are
cooked like spinach.
The leaves may be blanched by tying
mem togetner wnue they are growing,
which makes them more tender. Thev
grow like beets, maturing about the
nrst of July, but the larger leave
should be removed and eaten as wanted,
so they will give a succession of leaves
through the eummer, fall and the fol
lowing spring.
Growing; Tomatoes.
Tomatoes need a warm, rich soil, but
must not have too much manure, as
that produces rank vine growth and
is the fruit we want instead. They
should be cultivated like all other gar
den crops to maintain a soil mulch and
not hilled up. With especial care plants
may yet be set out of early varieties
and will bear this fall. Mulching with
straw, grass clippings, etc.. Is also often
recommended, but it increases the
tendency to rot. We will discuss the
mulching of vegetables later.
Pruning tomato vines, especially
after the fall rains set in and during a

long season of cold, wet weather. Is
very beneficial. If the large leaves
that shade the fruit too much are cut
away the sun has a better chance at
them. However, the 'tomatoes do not
need the direct sunlight to ripen; often
the finest fruit is produced in the
shadiest places.
The little extra leaves which come
out between the large leaves and the
stem will never amount to anything
and should be pinched off. They are
simply suckers and take the strength
from the plants to produce them.
Pollenizing tomato plants by hand is
recommended where the vines do not
seem to be setting enough fruit early
In the season. One method of doing this
Is by shaking the plants, or flowers
that have recently closed petals may be
tapped with a lead pencil. An O. A. C
letter says:
"Pollen may be collected on a spoon
or a glass slide from flowers with
petals expanded. The pollen receptacle
Is then held up to the stigma of the
pistil protruding through the center of
the flower so that a slight tapping of
the blossom la sufficient to bring the
stigma into contact with the pollen."
Staking; Tomatoes.
Staking tomatoes is often recom
mended and some go to the extreme of
pruning off all but one or two shoots
which they force to grow upright by
tying them to a stake. I always feel
sorry for them, they seem so tortured
and unnatural, and I do not believe the
results will warrant this in the usual
home garden.
Staking is usually practiced for In
tensive cultivation where very early
and very perfect fruit is to be forced.
This Is usually In greenhouses for the
out-of-season market. While early ma
turity and superior appearance (and
perhaps superior quality) are assured
by this method. It cuts down the yield
out of all proportion to the benefit ob
tained. We who want an abundance of
tomatoes to eat on our own tables and
to can are not so interested in the per
fect, shape and size of the fruit as we
are in having plenty of them, especially
as our' local climate is not the best for
tomato culture and we must use especial
care here to secure an abundant crop.
However, it is an advantage to keen
tnem up a little off the ground if you
have the time to do so, as the sun and
air can reach the fruit better and they
will not rot In the wet weather of fall.
though I have found very little trouble
with this here even where tomatoes are
left to grow naturally.
A trellis may be made by setting
stakes and tying string or wires along
the rows over which to train the plants.
but the strings will break with the
weight when the vines get heavy
enough to really need the support, and
tne wires cut the tender vines. The
best support I have found is a frame
work of lath tacked on top of stakes
around each plant, or a barrel stave
may be put around each plant and held
up rjy three short stakes nailed to it
and driven into the ground. I would not
nave tne eupport over a foot or so
high from the ground and it will be
some time before your vines will be
grown long enough to need it. but
when they are it does help a good deal
to ripen your fruit and keep it in per
fect condition. Tour racks should be
preserved and used each year In the
Turnips la Summer.
Spring turnips should be forced to
quick maturity and eaten young be
fore they are full grown, like early
beets. They do not do well in the heat
of summer, though they may be grown.
Use "Carco" for root maggots.
winter turnips are sown in August
and September and can be left In the
ground all winter here to use as de
sired, so I strongly advise you to plant
them for use next winter. This is much
better and less work than canning the
early ones now. Tour garden neighbor.
Many Evidences Seen of Bettering
