The Glory of the Rose

THE rose has been known to man from the earliest hours of history. It has been mentioned in story and song in all ages. It is the eternal flower of love, the emblem of sentiment. "All the world loves the lover," said Emerson. And it is true that all the world loves roses, probably for the same reason. Cherished in the palaces and gardens of the rich and mighty, it is, nevertheless, the flower of all classes and stations in life.

Let's Give Our Garden a Drink

WHEN the heavens become less bounteous of their stores of moisture, and the heat from the summer sun becomes more and more intense, such are the days when a garden needs a friend. This time is usually discouraging for those who depend on nature alone for moisture in the garden. But the fortunate man or woman who has a friendly irrigation plant and who can "make" rain reaps a harvest in crop returns that pays huge interest on the equipment, both in cash and pleasure.

The Art of Transplanting

There is not a gardener but who will have an opportunity to transplant at some time during the season. Generally he will have to set his tomato plants, celery plants, cabbage plants, and so on, early in the season and then later there will be transplanting in between rows of vegetables that have already been taken care of and that permit of the second crop between the rows.

Sure a Garden Pays

For a good many years we have had a small garden on a plot about 50x100 feet and it has always seemed to require more care than it ever amounted to, so last summer we kept record to find out where we stood.
