"Kitchen Efficiency"

IF you are a Lady-of-the-House and have ever spent two years on a desert island in the middle of the Pacific ocean-- as I have no doubt most of you have-- you will think as I do about your housework in general and your kitchen work in particular. You will remember how delighted you were when the ocean cast you up on the lovely tropical island and discovered that your husband could make a really lovely and satisfactory house by leaning eight of the giant leaves of the bongo-bongo palm against a stake.

Winter Protection In Cold Climates

THERE is nothing that is of greater concern to everyone interested in growing things at this season of the year, than the proper protection of shrubbery, bulbs, perennial plants and rather tender trees. All vegetation has climatic limitations in a natural state. But under artificial conditions these have been extended to a considerable extent. The vast extent of country from the Atlantic to Pacific, also north and south, makes the question of hardiness a difficult matter to consider, as practically all climates are embraced in this area.

Winter Protection of Perennials

The fly in the ointment for the average grower of perennials perhaps is the fact that he is not able to carry his plants successfully thru the winter. I know from experience that it is a discouraging spectacle to see plants which have been laboriously cared for during the summer laid low by the first frost in winter.

Winter Care of Backyard Flock

THE first severe weather of winter will bring a tendency to slight the backyard flock, because the heaviest burden is upon the attendant. But this is the time when proper and systematic care pays its largest dividends. By care we refer to regular and proper feeding, watering and keeping the quarters clean, dry and sanitary.

The Wild Strawberry

Isaak Walton, in "The Compleat Angler", makes a Dr. Boteler, in speaking of strawberries, say: "Doubtless God could have made a better berry, but doubtless God never did," to which the serene Isaak replied: "Doubtless God could have made a more innocent amusement than angling, but doubtless God never did."

Along the Garden Path

THOSE of you who love stories of the Great Outdoors; strong, virile, throbbing stories of animal and wild life, will do well to read "The Heart of Little Shikara," a volume of short stories by Edison Marshall. These stories of the wilderness are among the best I have ever read, and I have read most of the authors who attempt to speak with authority on the subject. Marshall is still a young man, barely twenty-seven years of age, but he has five novels and numerous short stories to his credit.
