A CHAT WITH THE PUBLISHER

NOT many days ago, I heard a speaker addressing a group of business men, pause in the midst of his remarks and ask point-blank: "What is the most important institution in our civilization? Quick! Give me the answer!" His audience hesitated; finally someone said it was the government, another thought it was business, another church, and so on.

HEY, Black Boy, what yo'-all think yo're doin'?" Daylight. Silence, save for the above curt challenge, after the dull rumble and swaying of the train all night. I raised the Pullman shade and looked out.

A Personal Letter From the Publisher

Last September when the first issue of Fruit, Garden and Home went into the mails, we were imbued with the idea that the people who live in cities and towns would appreciate a magazine which would deal constructively with their home-making problems both inside and outside the house; in other words, a magazine to serve not only as a sign-board pointing the way but also as a guide and counsellor, which expressed itself in plain, understandable terms.

The Neglected Age

UNTIL recently all of our efforts had been directed towards the betterment of the child of school age. He it was whom we were delighted to weigh and measure; remove enlarged adenoids and diseased tonsils; correct foot and posture ailments; repair decayed teeth and remove impacted ones. There was nothing too much to do for a child after he had attained five years.

A Homebuilders' Page of Real, Practical Service

IN the new series of designs for our Home Builders' Page this month we show two extremely interesting yet distinctly different types of homes; design No. 1 is an excellent example of the "Colonial," or what is generally termed "Dutch" Colonial. Design No. 2 is a popular type of the story and one-half cottage. Both houses are of frame construction, the first has the exterior wall covered with shingles while the cottage is cement stucco over metal lath.

Shrubs You Should Know

We eat about one-fourth as many Jonathan as Ben Davis apples. The Ben Davis, heralded as fair without but punk within, has its good points, but is not to be compared to the Jonathan in quality. Some of us evidently do not know the Jonathan. We grow Bridal Wreath (Spirea Van Houttei) in carload lots because the people want it.

YOU can now have a weedless lawn, according to experiments which have been conducted for fifteen years at the Rhode Island experiment station, results of which were recently announced. It is all done by making your soil acid, and we are assured that dandelions, quackgrass, dock and purslane will have nothing to do with such a lawn.

Bedroom Linens

COLORS may come and colors may go, but all-white embroidery never loses its charm and supremacy. White embroidery for bedroom linen is most satisfactory and pleasing and no color, however dainty, can ever take its place. If the materials are selected with care, the designs well chosen and the work exquisitely done, the lovely sheets and pillow-cases that we embroider today will be treasured by coming generations quite as much as we treasure the linen embroidered by our grandmothers.
