Hardy annuals are set out in O re
gon from April 15 until it is too late
for them to make a good grow th, the
experim ent station says. Tender an
nuals are not planted outdoors until
May 10. These dates are used at the
college in m aking plantings of ann
uals for the season.
Lime is needed in many Oregon
gardens, says the experim ent station.
The soil is often too acid for good
grow th and an addition of lime re
medies this trouble. Some plants re
quire soil conditions different from
others. Find out w hat the plant
needs and try to make the soil the
best for th at plant, is the advice of
W. S. Brown, professor of horticul
ture at the college.
Straw berry crown borers in O re
gon are controlled by burning infes
ted plants in the spring. Old plant
ings th at will not produce a crop this
year serve as breeding grounds for
the moths. These are plowed up and
the plants burned. New plantings
are located as far away as possible
from the old field.

will tell you it is a new kind of luxury
—one that doesn’t cost more to enjoy.
Of course you have always appreciated the ad
vantages of cooking by electricity. You know that
it means no more fuel to carry; no more ashes to
lug. You know that electricity is the ideal cook
ing heatjeconomical because it is turned on \\ hen
you need it — not before; turned off when you’re
But perhaps you would like to know exactly what
it costs — in dollars and cents. The 1S00 satisfied
families who now use elec tric ranges served with
electricity by this company would gladly show
you their bills, if they could.
Wc have made an average of these bills, so that
we may give you the facts. The average cost of
electric lights alone in all homes served by this
company in Oregon is $2.20 a month. The aver
age cost of their electric lights and electric cook
ing together is $5.62 a month.
For the difference, could you buv ordinary fuel
for cooking? And if you could, would you want
to? Whenever yon decide to investigate this ques
tion of electric cooking closely, your nearest deal
er will tell you many interesting things. And he
is prepared to instail your new electric range at
once, on convenient terms.
