Guest From Vancouver
How a sick woman, searching
for the health to be found in
sunshine and fresh air, developed
a good paying business, is the
story revealed at the home of
Mrs. M. M. Magee at Rickey.
A few years ago Mrs. Mageo
was a semi-invalid. Realising that
Lout-of-dopr life would help her.
she started to work among her
flowers. She planted only -one
dozen bulbs and so limited was
her strength, that she but dug
arcund them with a small fork in
her attempt at cultivation.
In a short time her health be
gan to improve for the sunshine
and fresh air were doing the
work. The flower beds grew in
size and beauty and before long
were attracting the attention of
passers-by who stopped and ask
ed if the Jovely flowers were for
Uusfne Grows Fawt
The idea of a' paying business
was born. Mrs. Mage resolved to
go into the work on a larger
scale and from the proceeds add
to that fund for educating the
two daughters, for which Mr. and
Mrs. Magee were so earnestly
working and planning. The flow
er fund was diverted into the
"Education Kund," and every
year the business has Increased
with gratifying; rapidity.
Mrs. Mace specializes in Iris,
but she grows dahlias, gladiolus,
and chrysanthemums as well.
That is she grows these for com
mercial purposes, but to me it
seemed that there is an endless
variety of flowers which she
grows "Just for the fan of it."
Moat of the many kinds with
which I am familiar, and many
of which I never have heard be
fore, I saw in the Magee garden.
Gardens Show Thought
Mrs. Magee has 76 varieties of
iris, an equal number of dahlias,
100 varieties of gladiolus and 50
different kinds of ' chrysanthe
mums. All these, with the many
different kinds of other flowers,
are to be found on less than an
acre of ground. The garden are
a marvel of careful planning and
thoughtful use of the resources
at hand.
Many interesting experiments
in flower culture and propagation
are being carried on here. Mr.
Magee is particularly successful
at hand pollenizing and although
t hi? work has not been done ex
tensively the results so far have
been very interesting.
Few people would have the pa
tience to develop iris from the
reeds, particularly when o n e
learns that it takes three years
from the time the seeds are plant
ed for the flowers to bloom. Mrs.
Msgee has planted seeds secured
from Rome and many other
places where I did not even know
that Iris grew.
Secret of Growing Given
I asked Mrs. Magee Just what
she considered the secret of suc
cess with flowers. She replied:
"Just two things, lots of water
and lots of cultivation." If re
sults may be taken as proof she
surely has found the secret and
now she has more orders for
flowers and bulbs than she can
Little Gale Smith, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Iran J. Smith, en
tertained some of her little friends
Saturday afternoon, the occasion
being her sixth birthday annivers

playing games after which ice
cream and cake were served. Those
present were Jean and Walton
