Many readers who have taken stock of the past year have written us telling about the progress they have made in making better gardens and in making better homes.

Success With Rhubarb

NO small garden should be without its rhubarb, variously known as the pieplant. It is considered one of the most healthful vegetables as well as the best spring system renovator. For pies it is fine and many can it for later winter use. It is also used for medicinal purposes. A small bed of roots is a permanent investment, at a very small cost; the tonic value of the sauce in early spring cannot be overestimated as well as during the entire season.

The Household Christmas Gift

IT is fortunate for most of us that the attitude towards Christmas gifts and giving should have undergone a vast change within recent years. Until that change crept in upon us, many well-intentioned people were bestowing gifts so widely and so altogether indiscriminately that they simply could not buy judiciously. The sole effect seemed to be concentrated on acquiring the requisite number of gifts-- the quality and the suitability of the purchases really appearing to matter least of all!

Standardized Plant Names is the title of an extraordinary volume issued by the American Joint Committee on Horticultural Nomenclature.

How to Buy and Cook Meats

IN spite of the fact that lamb is probably one of the earliest of domestic animals used for food, in this country it is one of the least used meats, and few housewives are acquainted with cuts other than the leg and ribs. There is no well-founded reason for this unpopularity, for lamb is a wholesome, nutritious and economical meat to buy, providing one buys wisely, selecting from the forequarter cuts as well as the hind quarter.

Managing the Backyard Flock

THE average city and suburban homeowner suddenly decides he is going to have chickens as egg producers and for table consumption. With the thought fresh in mind he hurriedly erects what he calls a hen house. Probably he even includes a bit of a runway. The chances are he feeds the hens table scraps of every description and more scratch grains than they will eat.

I CANNOT commend too highly the enterprise and vision of The Garden Flowers Society of Indianapolis in the flower shows which it sponsors each season.
