when other blooming- plants are
apt to be scarce; are tbe Amaryl

form a. delightful, sequel to hya
cinth, narcissi, "cyclamens ana
; other winter bloomers, and- are
'easily purchased from any large
: seed firm. All three -hare qual
ities rendering them desirable
for winter culture. They are of
easy, .rapid growth, they with
stand adverse household -' con
ditions, and they hold a high
place .- among decorative plants.
They also mar. be said to be
rare, or semi-rare for household
window gardens, at least.
- It requires very little effort to
grow them, the main require
ment being to pot them correctly
at the start.
The Amaryllis will grow In any
good soil, but If possible mix one
part leaf mold to two parts good
loan I for them, - adding enough
sand, to Insure good drainage. If
the soil requires fertiliser, do not
add too much. The method of pot-
..tlna Is a, Terr important one the
size ok the pots should be suited
to the slxret that. bulb. For In
stance; bulbs of about J hi Inches
In dUmeter may be flowered in
four-inch pots.
When potting, fill the pots to
about M inch from the rims, cor
erlng the bulbs for about one-half
their depth, leaving the "necirand
shoulders" bare. If the bulbs are
planted too deep in the pets, they
will . derelop . foliage, and the
flowering as a rule wilf be delay
ed. Tbey should be crown in an
atmosphere that is comfortably
warm. and after flowering should
be watered freely to develop fol
iage. When all danger of frost is
past, they may he taken from the
pots and planted out in the gar
n den wtere they will ripen their
foliage. Pig them up before cold
weather, and store until they are
? wanted again.
The Ismene Calathina (Peruv
ian, daffodil) i Is grown in the
same manner as; the Amaryllis, ex

Two of the
greatest mis

'using them are
plant tng the
wrong varieties
and pi Anting

the wrong' locations. .
Purpose should be your decid
ing factor in selecting conifers.
There are now conifers for every
purpose. Far too frequently the
wrong ones are used Jn planting;

such lovely little trees when we
planted them." One has a habit of
growing fond of the things that
bare been with them constantly
for a time and it is difficult to
make up one's mind to remove a
tree that on "planted when Tom
was a year old" even If that tree
is crowding everything out. For
this reason real care should be
used fn selection. The .ultimate
size must be considered.
I have tried to make a list of
evergreens and their "grown-up"

' Many a side-long glance is be

by the garage of Dr. H. J. Cle

One of the very interesting
things In the Salem Garden club
series of meetings this " fall and
winter will be the illustrated
English garden lecture . which
will be given by Mias Edith
Schryvei1 Npvember , 23 at .the
Congregational church.
The pictures were taken by
Miss Elizabeth Lord and Miss
Schryver when they were tour-
Ink Europe visiting gardens and
studying. Miss Schryver did the
coloring ot those pictures which
are tinted.
The lecture was given - before
one session of the state garden
dab convention members and
proved so popular and interesting
that Vtss Schryver, .has been
prevailed upon to i give It again
for Garden club members and the
public ot Salem that car to
corns. A slight admission charge
will be. made for this lecture and
the proceeds will be used by the
Garden club for needed expense
money. .
The Interesting travel evening
that these pictures furnish for an
audience is an appeal to all those
Interested In far-away places
even though they lit la apart
ment houses and hare no place
to put a garden.
They also have a lath house to
grow shrubs In. and th mm
frames for evergreens, in ft

THIS Is a tale ot Salem, al
though It might well bare

Distress Terrible
On this particular occasion I
groped my way to my favorite

so I became aware that some
thing wss not as it should be.
The chair seemed to havo been
reupholstered heavily, and tho
upholstery wiggled. Further
more, it made a sound which in
tho darkness was alarming. A
human sound.
It was, in short, the sound of
a female in distress. I presume
there is In aU the vast sange of
human sounds none so terrible as
that made by a female In dis
tress. A moment of agony. I strug
gled to regain my feet. My soles
