For Share of "Atten-'W-

I Iq the early spring the
jtaoufhts of sjardeners tarn to

flowers and as this pare; la pri
marily devoted to the develop
ment of the beauty of thehome
and tta surroundings a few sug
gestions are throws out in the
following remarks whjch jwill. It
Is hoped, lend a bit of Inspiration
In punning- the vegetable garden
for this spring so that It may be
a thins of: beauty as well as a
joy for the hungry folk whom it
will feed with the perfection
which only good vegetable can
The garden should be placed
as advantageously as possible
with regard to sun and good
drainage. Often as a matter, of
necessity It la at the rear of the
lot or In one corner. It ; should
have an - aproach fitting the
promise of the good things it Is
.to yield. A neat pathway; either
of well-trimmed lawn, flagstones
or crazy paving will make an ex
cellent approach. The garden
should have a distinctive bound
ary of soma kind and the gate
way will be a center of attraction
In the rear portion of the prem
ises. -Li- -y i i i
There are all manner"" of orna
mental gates both In wood and
metal to be purchased ready to
hang. A home owner with a little
skill at handling carpenter's
tools can make a handsome gate
himself. An arched gate with
clinging vines or shrubs trained
over it la one of the most Attrac
tive devices. If this can be made
Into a small arbor with a! bench
on either aide shaded by vines or
shrubbery, furnishing a j place
where the housewife, after gath
ering vegetables, may alt! down
and shell peas or snap beana. It
is an added attraction. f
But whatever form of gate J
csed, it need not be a rickety;
unsightly affair such as are too
often seen.
A pathway from the kitchen
door bordered with flowering
plants and terminating In an attractive-gate
will add much to the
Joy of vegetable gardening and
the production of first class high
quality vegetables Is one of the
most satisfying feats of garden
ing. With a good approach, at
tractive gate and good boundar
ies, the making of an ornamental
vegetable garden Is half i done.
The next point is the design of
the garden. This lends Itself to
as great a variety of treatments
as the flower garden on formal
lines, for the vegetable garden la
naturally a formal garden.! It Is
planted In straight rows, j
Many of the big estates of the
country offer object lessons that
may be well learned by the own
er of a small vegetable garden In
the way of making his vegetable
patch attractive. This la-the way
of architecture" of the garden. It
need not be expensive, and! much
of it can easily be made at home.

. Lattices to surround the garden
or to ehut off. the most unsightly
part of it are easily made, the
lumber of the right size being on
sale at realers, or it can be cut to
any desired measurement. Lat
tices painted white and support
ing climbing roses or other vines
offer one of the finest garden
Rustic ' fences from branches
cut from forest trees which have
been felled furnish another at
tractive feature. The rustle trel
lis for grapes and on smaller scale
for tall peas, pole beana and cu
cumbers Is also extensively used.
Trellises for peas are easily and
neatly made at practically no ex
pense so that they become an at
tractive feature of the garden and
much more pleasing to the eye
than brush or chicken wire so
often used, but put up so that it
presents various bulges and curv
es Instead of being tightly stretch
ed. It Is a simple matter to frame
it attractively and to put down
firm posts so that It ! may be
stretched and not be In danger of
being dragged over by the weight
of vines, particularly after a rain.
In many of the school gardens
where tbe idea of beauty in the
vegetable garden is Inculcated, a
sun dial or bird bath is ttsed as a
central feature of the vegetable
garden. This is an excellent idea
to add ornamental qualities, and a
small bed of flowers about it will
make of it a feature that redeems
the entire vegetable garden from
commonplace appearance.
If the rear fence which bounds
the garden happens to be a plain
board affair, it can be easily trim
med up with a little lattice work
or fitted with wirea for "vines so
that by midsummer it will be an
ornamental feature of the garden
Instead of remaining unsightly
the year around.

Inquiries concerning r this and
have been told that there are
some house plants that do not

However, this primrose is not
fond of too much heat and

well in a room of a temperature
above 70 degrees. January is a
good time to make your fuchsia
puttings from your old plants.
Make them two or three Joints
long. They root in water or sand
and should be potted in a compar
