Woodland Flowers of the Prairie Region

IT may be surprising to those who are unacquainted with the prairie region to know that it contains a great amount of woodland. The greater part of these forests are adjacent to the watercourses, which give variations of drainage, elevation and exposure to suit a great variety of plants. Where farm animals have not been pastured, the original woodland flora is still abundant. The entrance of animals for any great period not only destroys all perennials but prevents any development, of the wood lot from a forestry point of view.

The Well-Ordered Guest Room

SUMMER is a time when the vacation spirit reigns; when all the world goes jaunting; when company comes for a day, a week or a month. Unfortunately, however, summer sometimes arrives with its almost inevitable guests before the long-projected guest room is ready to extend a welcome; with the result that various emergency measures are necessary before any sort of accommodation can be provided. Such a condition is, of course, neither complimentary to guests nor creditable to householders.

Assuring That Vacation

WELL, next year we will go somewhere for our vacation, but this year we will have to pass it up, we cannot afford it." The same old story is it not? All of us have either said it or heard it said, and why-- simply because we merely make the remark without any definite idea for the next year until it arrives.

And the lilacs are getting as tall as the garage, and the vines won't stay inside the fence! A garden always slops over; first, you work to get a good one, then you work to keep it within bounds!"
