care must be exercised as to
tune of planting, so as to avoid the
late treeses.
Our planting season here begins
later than in lower altitudes. Some
annuals, such as sweet peas, asters,
goditias. clarkia, larkspur, salpiglos
ais and scabiosa may be planted out
aide as soon as the ground can be
worked. They are hardy and resist
late frosts. Cold weather does not
seem to hamper the germination of
the seeds. I have frequently noted
their coming up in the spring when
their seeds laid out aU winter after
falling on the ground in the fall

Idaho's Rainbow Troot wiB
get a rousing reception this
week at the little city of
Sand point on U. S. 95 in
the northern part of the
state. This year, as in the
past, the red hatted citizens
of Sand point will celebrate
the opening of the Koote
aay Rainbow Trout season
with a week-iong festival
of special events.
Trout, dainty fish and a
mighty riser, win be in the
time light all over the West
about this time of year. He
Waitons, from every walk
of hfe, will soon be wetting
Royal Coachmans, Picket
Pins, Buddy Mites and
countless other varieties of
wet and dry flies in streams
all over the Northwest.
The flash of the rainbow
trout is perhaps one of the
greatest of fishing' thrills,
but other fish are equally
popular and plentiful in
this region. Bass, perch,
chub, catfish, and many
other finny favorites rise
to bait in the fresh water
streams of this fisherman's
Salmon fishing is another
leading outdoor sport dur
ing the spring and summer
months. Salmon derbies
1 are held in a number of '
' Puget Sound cities each
year, and of course the big
event of each is Derby Day.
The angler can find plenty
of interest in Idaho, Wash
' ington, and Oregon. Stream
waders, lake fishermen, or
salt water enthusiasts will
find plenty of sport in the
waters of the Northwest,
When you pack up the car
for that first fishing trip,
we'd like to suggest a full
tank of the new Richfield
higher octane gasoline. The
extra power in this great
new motor fuel will make
your trip a greater pleasure,
danger of freesitur Is past. They
(terminate quickly and are fast
growers, so do not take as much
time to flower as many other va
rieties do. Should they freese back,
replant them immediately and you
will still have a profusion of blooms
in August, and until frost kills the
Climatic conditions dttfer each
year, but nature sets the time to
plant when the weeds begin to ap
pear and maple trees to bud, you
know the ground is warming up and
It is time to start planting.
April showers bring spring flowers
Is always true in colder climates.
The spring rains melt the snow and
warms the soil so that spring flow
ers soon appear. Some years flow
ers come much earlier than April.
It was in February and March. 1894
and 189$, that I remember seeing the
prairies of western Oklahoma la
terally covered with what we called
"wind-flowers" a daisylike small
anemone in all the pastel shades of
blue and pink to white, producing
a fairylike effect on the landscape.
These charming little flowers seem ' oca
to have disappeared with the coming
of civilisation.
The propagation of annuals Is
sometimes difficult for the amateur
gardener. I would suggest that If
you have trouble in getting seeds
to come up. buy the growing plants
from the greenhouse and get an
early start by traiu.planllng them
to your own garden. The cost la
small as compared to the satisfaction
of getting just what you want to
create the desired effect.
The bedding plants which we find
most desirable for balcony and win
low boxes are geraniums, petunias,
verbenias. lobelia, agrtatum, pinks
and trailing ivy and myrtle. These
are not generally used for cut flow
ers, but owing to their compact
nature and constant blooming period
are most desirable where perpetual
blooming is required.
Petunias and lobelia require so
much time to germinate that they
should be planted Indoors in Feb
ruary or March to be ready for boxes
In May. I find It easier to buy them
from the store when needed. There
are three places which handle all
kinds of annual and perennial flower
plants: Klamath greenhouse. Mur
phey's Seed store and the Market
Basket. Siu Martot street.
