Arrange tho chicken on n dish and

HOW TO GROW VEGETABLES,
Should Nsvsr Be 8own
After a Rainstorm.
Just nfter n rain la n poor tluio to
sow seeds. It Is bettor to wait until
tho ground can ho raited or harrowed
easily. When transplanting ii to bo
done, first wet the ground thoroughly.
Then It will be possible to tuko up a
good ball of eurth with tho pluut, und
the roots will not suffer.
Corn aud melons should not be culti
vated deeply. Tho toots grow near the
surface, uud merely stirring tho soil
sutllclently to create a dust mulch la
all the plants require. '
It Is Important to have tho garden
tools sharp. Somo people novcr think
of sharpening tho blado of a hoe, but
It Is altogether worth while.
Squashes kecl best If allowed to re
main on the vliies as long as possible
before tho season of hard frosts. Then
they get thoroughly ripened and tho
shell well hardened.
Poultry manure Is u good dressing
for tho vegetnble garden If scattered
over tho ground In tho spring and cul
tivated In. It Is particularly good for
forclug tho growth of onions.
Seeds of beets', parsnips und carrots
germinate slowly. Often weeds como
up thickly before tho plants .appear,
but tho gardener Is afraid to cultivate.
A few radish seeds sown with the oth
ers will obvlnto this dllllculty by mark
ing Jho rows within a few days.
Scmo gardeners greatly lmprovo
their lettuce, Swiss chard and spinach
by growing them under n canopy of
cheesecloth held about live feet abovo
the ground by stakes or u light frame.
An excellent way to economlzo labor
In watering plants Is to sink a tomuto
cun Into tho ground at the base of
each plant, huvlng llrst punched tho
bottom full of holes. The water ur
ed into tho can will reach the roots
directly and not bo wusted. Weak
manure water may be given this way
to excellent ndvuntugo If the plants
Generally speaking, tho depth to
plant should bo four times tho dlam
eter of tho seeds.

HOW TO KEEP BEDROOM COOL
Window Boxes Filled With Flowers Do
People who cannot afford tho country
and mountains during the dog days
arc often vexed by little troubles with
temperature in the sleeping rooms
Electric fans will do n good deal, but
one cannot have them all over tho
house. Awnings help, and so docs tbe
cool" white wicker furniture, but to
have truly pleasant and airy sleeping
quarters with imitation whiffs of coun
try air ono must resort to horticulture
In window boxes and all kinds of fresh
A window box overrun with bright
xreeQ creepers and redolent flowers
will not only Improve the prospect
from your bedroom window, but the
atmosphere ns well. Living plants ab
sorb heat and poisonous gases, nnd the
aroma of certain flowers has a salutary
Influence. Flowers of a heavy, cloy
Ing perfume should bo avoided, how.
ever, as they stimulate rather than
soothe tbe senses that ought to be
composed In sleep.
But with a general array of foliage
and flowers on the window und bal
cony you may get u taste of tbe coun

and leafless alley below. Especially
when you vote for the other altera
tlons such as bare or scantily covered
floors, willow furniture and awnings
summer life In the city may appeal to
you. Your bedroom may be as cool
and breezy as a fresh air camp.
A running faucet or u bowl or bottle
of Ice water on your table at night
will lower the temperature nt least
Ave degrees. If your room has fairly
large nnd well screened windows with
a transom opposite you can provide for
a free circulation of air even on hot
and sultry nights. If you sprinkle
your window boxes copiously lt will
have tbe same cooling effect on tho
surrounding air as u summer shower.

- How to Remove Gran Stains.
The problem of removing grass stnlns
from linen hud confronted me a long
time, said a housekeeper recently. We
were Invited to spend the duy In the
country. On arriving home I found my
children's dresses covered with green
grass stains. I feared they were ruined.
The next morning I scalded them with
boiling water, all to no purpose. Then
I laundered them with white soap and
rinsed; tho stains seemed more vivid.
In despair I laid them on the lawn In
a hot sun all day. At night I brought
them In. Not a trace of stain remain
ed. I have tried It successfully on
cambric nnd percale many times since.
How to Clean Hats.
The easiest way to keep the straw
hats of tho family as good as new Is
to buy 5 cents' worth of oxalic ncld,
a clean, soft cloth und a toothbrush.
Dissolve tho ucld, tuko the hut In I lie
left hand, dip the brush In the ucld,
rub a small piece nt n time und then
rinse off with water and wipe dry.
Work rapidly, holding tho hut so the
acid and wuter will run ofT. With
lare it can be done without tuklng off
the band nnd accomplished In a few
minutes. It la best to work near a
