Contentment Re-Discovered

A PRICE we pay for the privilege of being human-- and sometimes it seems almost a penalty-- is the ability to look inward and analyze our own minds.

Along the Garden Path

LIFE must have seemed to her just one 'no-- no' after another," said Gladys Denny Shultz in the January issue, speaking of a little daughter whose creeping period was spent in an apartment. The article was entitled, "The Case of Home vs. Child," and a score card was presented which suggested that parents check themselves as to their facilities and inclinations to make the home attractive and suitable for the rearing of children.

Homes of Outstanding American Women

WHAT constitutes a home? The latest fashion in architecture and interior decorating? An ancestral mansion, shaded with great trees, set in the midst of a formal garden, and handed down with care and pride from one generation to another? A tiny bungalow, flower-fringed, into the building of which the ardor and earnings of a happy young couple have gone?

Common Diseases of Iris

FORTUNATELY the bearded iris is a plant that is not affected by any great number of diseases. It is of some value to a gardener to know that a plant he admires or possibly is growing as a specialty is not likely to give him trouble by succumbing to disease on the slightest provocation.

A Picnic In Fifteen Minutes

ALL right. Let's go! I'll have lunch ready in fifteen minutes." Can you answer any member of your family in such fashion?

Oven Canning Is Easy

THE old adage, "Variety is the spice of life," holds true in our household regime as well as in our leisure moments spent outside of the home. Some of us like to do things by one method while others of us like to attain the same results by doing things in other ways.

Habits and Customs of Birds

MOST folks think that if they furnish feasts for the birds in winter, they can just as well give them a "reducing diet" in summer. For, of course, that is the time of year when birds are supposed to scratch for themselves. Some bird lovers who are wise, however, keep their open-air pantries well stocked during the warm months, too, so that they can attract and enjoy many more kinds of feathered songsters near their homes than would otherwise be possible.

Chimney Dwellers

SANTA CLAUS and the goblins and the chimney sweeps and the fairies are not the only ones that visit smoke flues. If you happen to know of a large fireplace, seldom used, at home or at your summer camp, you can watch out for certain other mysterious guests. Toward evening is a good time to look for them. They are likely to be seen circling above the roof.

New Porch Things to Make

A FORMAL front stoop may bespeak hospitality if the door be wide and inviting, but for summer charm and comfort it is a poor substitute for the spacious veranda where life centers for several months each year. But why sing praises of the porch? Any possessor of one knows how the baby has his sleepy buggy and his play pen in its open air; how mother comfortably entertains callers or guests on the well-appointed porch, and even father gets an occasional hour of solid comfort here in that sway back chair he loves.

Building an Appetite

THE past ten years have brought us something new under the sun-- a generation of children who will not eat. There have been many children thru the ages who could not eat because there was no food, but never before in the world's history have parents been confronted with the problem of the child who has before him the perfect diet, decided upon after years of research by scientists and carefully prepared according to expert direction-- but who won't touch it!

THERE are many recipes for old-time potpourri but here is one that is very satisfactory. Select your rose jar which may be ornamental or any good earthenware jar with a cover. It should be aired and sunned so that there shall be no trace of mustiness. A few drops of oil of rose geranium and two drops of glycerine should be placed in the jar while empty, the latter to prevent evaporation.

Tips From Garden Notebooks

I HAVE often read in the catalogs that the cape jasmine is very easy to raise from cuttings, but I have found from experience that it requires patience unlimited to get a plant started that way. Two years ago a friend gave me a cutting that seemed ripened just enough to root easily, so I placed it in clear sand with a fruit jar covering its tender head.
