Tempting List of Prizes Is
Hung up For Lucky
Unless it rains again today the
Albany baseball team will be in
Salem to play the Salem Senators
at the Oxford street grounds at
3 o'clock. The Salem batteries
will be Lund and Edwards, and
for Albany, Coleman and Gill
will be the battery. Gill is the
well-known Salem player who is
now in college at Corvallts.
Another tempting. list of prizes
has been hung up for the game
today.-. Blessing- & Boone will
give a carton of cigarettes to the
first Saem player who makes a
two-bagger. The Spa will give a
box of candy to. the fjrst player
who bats in a run. For the first
home run a pair of silk socks or
a necktie will be given by Kafoury
Brothers. Jeffreys wJll a photo
graph album for the first two
base hit, and the Clark tire shop
will give an inner tube for the
first three-bagger or home run.
Luther Burbank has added a
new nut to the world. If they all
get together they will elect the
plants which are more expensive.
For garden planting it Is best
to make the rows three feet apart
and set the plants from 18 inches
to two feet apart in the rows. It
is important to set the plants at
proper depth. The crown of the
roots should be level with the
surface of the soil and each plant
should be firmly pressed into the
ground. In the northern states
the plants should be mulched in
There are several ways of grow
ing strawberries, but the best
plan for the home gardener is to
develop each plant to the limit of
its capacity. That is done by
pinching of the runners, which is
easy to cay but not easy to do. In
the growing season it keeps yon
busy putting a stop to the efforts
of the strawberry plant to repro
duce itself. But persist, and yoa
will see the parent plant concen
trate its strength in the produc
tion of berries, much to your de
light. Senator Dunlap is a favor

A Square Deal for Sweet Corn
Five rows of corn 10 feet long
will produce more sweet corn
than the same number of stalks
in a single row 50 feet long
Every strand of corn silk repre
sents a potential kernel of corn
on the cob from which it issues.
It becomes a kernel ot corn pro
vided the dust from the tassel or
pollen falls upon it. The pollen
dust must be deposited on the
silk or there 'is no kernel of corn.
The corn depends upon the wind
to drift the pollen dust upon, the
silk. Other plants depend upon
bees, but the bees do not find
corn so much to their liking. The"
tassels give off clouds of dust. All
it needs is direction.
In a square of corn, whicnever
way the wind comes, it drives the
dust through the planting. Most
of it is bound to fall upon the
silks. In a long single row or a
double row, the pollen is blown
away In great quantities and
strikes no silk that it can ferti
lize. This explains the basis for
square planting of corn rather
than in long rows.
Two feet apart in the row and
rows three feet apart is about the
right distance for corn. Three to
four stalks in a hill is plenty.
Three is better than four for ful!
development. Another system is
to plant the corn in rows with
single stalks about a foot apart.
Corn loses its sugar within
four hours after it is picked. It
can't be kept overnight and re
tain its sweetness. A chemical
change takes place, which changes
the. sugar in the corn to starch.
So corn is one vegetable that must
be home grown or grown very
close to home If it is to be placea
on the table really sweet.
Corn is the shallowest rootins
large growing vegetable. Its
roots radiate like the spokes of a
wheel, but they do not go deep.
This is one reason why it is so
easily blown over by a high wina
If not hilled up.
As it is hallow rooting, too
deep hoeing disturbs the root sys
tem and hampers growth.
This doesn't mean that it
shouldn't be hoed, by any means,
hoe lightly and do not dig too
deeply. If the soil is in good con
dition. 6tirrlng the soil with a
rake or a cultivator toothed ho?
is a better system.

There is no more practical use
for a tiny patch of ground than
to make of it a herb garden, a
patch of taste and smell to glad
den the soul. The great secret ot
foreign cookery and a department
in which the American cook is
too often lacking in flavoring,
particularly for sauces. The
French or Italian chef uses quan
tities of herbs, dried or fresh,
often to add tang or zest to a
vegetable which has no very pro
nounced flavor of its own?
Stuffing for fowls is dependent
for its palatableness upon the
herbs which flavor it. Three or
four herbs enter into some of the
dressings an accomplished chef
will turn out.
Only a few plants are needed
of each herb. It is a great con
venience to have them handy in
the kitchen, for when they are
needed they are needed badly. A
fresh home-grown supply is worth
double the dried product obtain
able from the grocery store.
Sweet basil, a favorite of French
cooks for soups, stews, dressings
and sauces; marjoram, used for
the same purposes; thyme, often
used in combination with basil
and marjoram or alone or with
sage; chervil, a flavoring akin to
parsley: mint, to keep the lamb
from being lonely and to cook
with green peas or to make into
jelly (no longer for juleps);
summer savory to flavor soups or
stews and to cook with string
beans; sage, the inevitable herb
of the Thanksgiving turkey, and
if worse comes to worse, usable
as a hair dye; annual lavender,
the dried blossoms of which make
scent bags to be placed among
the linen for the dainty fresh
fragrance it imparts; a few plants
of dill for the pickles; all these
in a small space may be growa
readly, and all except the thyme
will grow from seed. The leaves
may be dried and put away in
cans, boxes or paper sacks and
some housewives merely cut down
the whole plant and hang it to
dry, protecting it from dust.
A few plants of tarragon will
furnish leaves for flavoring the
salad vinegar and this aromatic
herb is also used in cookery.
