Now Is tbe time not only to think of
what you are going to bare In your
winter window garden, but to act on
whatever decision you corns to in
rather prompt fashion.
Probably the most effective of all
window plants are the cinerarias. Some
thtuk they are difficult to raise, but
there are only a few general principles
to be applied to them. They require
a great deal more water than the
primrose, and once a week at least
they should be soaked for three hours
in water thnt covers the pot The rea
son for this Is thnt their sturdy roots
make such a complicated and Intricate
mat in the earth that water reaches
them with difficulty from above.
The shades to be chosen depend en
tirely on the Individual taste, though
If one has many other brlphtly colored
flowers In the window the white, blue
and dull shndes or red are easier toned
In than those of the vivid magenta.
Cyclamen plants are exquisitely pret
ty with effective leaves and charm
ing little flowers. Iu an east win
dow with an average amount of water
and sunshine they will bloom con
tinuslly till well in tbe spring. Then
some time the last of April tuk them
hut and plant them in the ground, pref
erably with east exiN-wuiv. till full
and they will be ready for une and
Just as pretty tbe following winter.
Snapdragons In all kinds of glorious
colors and shades. Including pinks, yel
lows, rich crimson mid rremn wMn
can be made to bloom from Nnveinlier
till well Into March. i:xMur In a
south window agrees with tht-m tne
best, watering them h ImmkIh ntly. but
Petunias slso make splendid whiter
window plants. The silvery tint pink
ones nre eHvlally preity and are
cared for In much tbe snme fashion
as snapdragons. If the plants appear
to droop and grow weary after a month
or so of steady blooming they have to
be doctored up like any human being
after a strain of hard work. Mc,ukl
manure has been proved to be most
effective as a stimulant snd brscer.
and a third of a pint given once every
ten days or so Is the dose. Some peo
ple recommend weak coffee as an ex
cellent plant tonic and have great suc
cess with their plants in allowing tbetn
to absorb it
Every almost grown schoolgirl knows
that no sort of wear Is so bard upon
tbe school frock as that which itjreta
during the hours outside tbe 1 ass
room. Tet It Is not usually' convenient
to change from that frock to some
other one. Whether a girl Is attending
a boarding or a day school she should
have to put on over her class frock an
all enveloping apron which can be
slipped off Id an Instant One very
pretty model, having tbe fashionable
straight line silhouette. Is cut In one
piece, buttons down the back from the
deeply rounded out neck to below tbe
hips and has arm eyes precisely like
those of a blouse sleeve. There are

where with a uiacbine stitched bem
broad about the feet but narrow else
where this model Is charming in white
batiste, lawn or dimity, in a colored
scrim or cheesecloth or In a figured

save the school frock from many an
annoying ink stain, and to make them
Is mere pluy.

A Thread Economy.
To economize on thread raise the
foot of tbe machine to remove a gar

with top and lower threads toward tbe
back. You cau then cut tbe threads
much shorter, and tbe foot will hold

about tbe needle getting accidentally
unthreaded. Tbe work can easily be
placed under the foot again, and yon

WHAT IS EXPECTED
Seldom do those of tbe journalistic
fraternity dwell upon the trials or tri
bulatiouB connected with the business,
but the folluwing editorial gleaned from
the Portland Journal is so fitting to the
general circumstances that we feel
the tranHgreBBlon for reprinting it will
be pardoned. The article was printed
during the time of the last meeting of
the Stste Editorial Aiaocistion in
Portlsnd, and is as follows:
The up-state newspaper men have
been in session in Portlsnd.
Much is asked of them, and little
bestowed. The man who wants free
publicity and gives nothing back in
advertising, besieges all newspapers
but none more then tbe up state pub.
Tbe mail overwhelms tbem with all
kinds of copy with a request that It
be inserted tree and marked copies of
tbe psper be sent. Stock shows, horse
shows, oounty fairs, cburcb fairs,
state fsirs, school fairs, world's
fairs. charity balls, June fes
tivals, health committees, charity com.
mi t tees, development committees,
promotion committees, publicity com
mittees, general welfare committees
and every other kind of fair, show,
exposition and committee showers the
publication office with requests for
free spsce, always holding out as re
muneration tbe aiaurance that it is of
the good of tbe community, never
realizing that white paper must te
cald, for In dollars, that printers muit
have monev for food, clothing and
shelter and that publication offices
csnnot subsist on warm wind.
Along with (he fsirs and othur free
publicity folk, ia the real estato agent
who doesn't edverllse but wants hie
nsme mentioned In every ssls, the
doctor who doesn't advertise becsuse
he ssys it Isn't professions!, but wants
his nsme as the surgeon In a case of
sceident, and the merchant who doesn't
advertise hecsuss it doesn't pay, but
he wants the reporter to drop around
and write up for the paper a descrip
tion of a newly arrsngod show window.
In, addition, there Is the profession
al prsfs sgent who Is paid a big salsry
becsuse of his venstility in working
the newspapers for free publicity. He
is the eunnlngeat, crsftlest, msn with
winning ways, chaste smile, 'polished
address and soulful eyes, and wben he
gets through with the up stste news
psper publisher there isn't much left
about the office that tho agent wants
to buy, especially In the wsy of ad
In no sctlvity In the world Is there
so much endssvor to get something for
nothing as Is Attempted on the news
paper business. No activity in the
world gives as much to the publle
gratis, and gsts as tew thsnks back.
Fur all the boosting of the commun
ity, for all tho constructive agltstlon,
for all the struggle at reform, for all
the appeals In behalf of puollo move
ments, fur ell the cheery puffs of the
prominent cltlxsns, for all the free
notices, free exploitation, free adver
tising, and free gifts ot spsce and In
fluence of every kind, the community
expects In return to Isy a few
flowers on the grave of the defunet
newspaper man when he Is dead and
let It go at that.
No public servitoi is more faithful
and devoted, no citlxsn mere sincere
and but fsw figures In the community
so generous or able as Is tbe avsrsge
