Fruit, Garden and Home

IN these columns in April I said: "It (the home) is the hemstring of our universe. Draw it out, and our whole civilization will fall into ruins; break the home, impair its integrity, and every hope and aspiration we have will be in grave jeopardy ... From the earliest times, the home-- the family unit-- has been the basis upon which every relation has been built."

Growing Dahlias From Seed

MANY flower lovers have never realized the pleasure of growing dahlias from seed. Dahlia tubers may be purchased from florists or flowering plants may be secured the first year from seed sown early in the spring. If the gardener wishes to be absolutely certain of the trueness to type of the varieties he plants, he will do well to order tubers from some reliable firm, but if he enjoys a game of chance, then he may buy a package of seed, plant them, watch them grow, and have something to live for from day to day.

Taking Care of Your Lawn in the Fall

ALONG in August, many a lawn begins to look "sick." Either the summer's dry spells have killed off much of the grass, or the lawn has become so worn down in spots that it is sadly in need of repair. Or the weeds have made such a Jack's Beanstalk growth that they are entirely crowding out the grass. If, therefore, you would have a smooth velvety surface of green about your house again when spring calls all growing things to life, it is wise to take inventory of the lawn's needs, and to plan some repair work before frost comes.

Homes of Famous Americans

NOW and then men are born who give great promise of reaching the most sublime heights of usefulness and fame.

Transplanting Trees

AN authority on the subject claims that trees should be transplanted in the dead of winter. When a tree is moved from one environment to another the plant receives a severe shock. If this moving is done during an inactive period there will be less danger of death and certainly less molestation of tiny roots.
