She Loved Him Into It!

WHEN big, bluff Sam saw Kate, he reported that he "fell for her like a ton of bricks, and was a goner." Her snappy black eyes, quick decisive voice, and trig little figure spelt for him Romance, with a capital R. And in honeymoon days she settled herself into the curve of his strong arm and discovered there a new and wonderful peace of spirit.

Garden Understudies

AS THE garden pageant moves across the stage some tried-and-true leaders step forth each season. But just as every leading lady requires adequate support, and just as each first violin demands a second fiddle, so in the orchestra of the garden many plants must play minor parts.

California Colonial

A SMALL home which, because of its simple, beautiful lines and quiet dignity, immediately attracts the attention of the most casual passer-by, is this one designed by H. Roy Kelley, well-known Los Angeles architect, for Mr. and Mrs. H. W. McGowan, Better Homes & Gardens readers of that city.

Crazy Quilts and Gardens

I STARTED my garden in much the same manner everyone does. I wanted flowers. I had my back yard spaded into beds of various and sundry shapes and sizes, planting them with whatever annual, perennial, and biennial met my fancy in the seed catalog.

Flowers That Fly

OF ALL the beautiful subjects in the beautiful kingdom of Nature the butterfly is the most beautiful of all. Along with the moths they give us flashes of joy and colors that can be captured only by the soul. In our own North America about 9,500 species of butterflies and moths glorify the land, of which number about 650 are butterflies. We find them, in their different species, from the lowest valleys and the hottest tropics to the highest peaks and the frozen Arctic. Emerson left us:

Have You Ever Sown a Cover Crop?

SINCE the introduction of the automobile successful vegetable-gardening has become annually more and more dependent than ever before upon what is done during hot weather; in fact, many failures may be traced to the neglect of simple, inexpensive attention that anyone can give at this time with the full assurance that the garden will improve and maintain a high standard of excellence.

Old-fashioned but New

THIS beautiful little house, a water color of which is reproduced on the cover this month, illustrates several points in favor of combining the architectural flavor of the past with the necessities of the present without sacrificing too much of either. Fundamentally this is a story-and-a-half house, a type that is frankly economical.

Miss Argy SNUBS THE FAMILY

THERE are times when those who fraternize with the creeping things of the earth are compelled to lay their dignity upon a sacrificial altar in an effort to satisfy their curiosity. Take, for example, my experience with a very small friend who occupied a residence near the ceiling. Whenever I wished to pay her a call it was necessary to climb upon the dining-room table.

ARE They WEATHERING THE DOG DAYS?

AT ANY time now I expect to be receiving tales of woe from the Better Homes & Gardens family. Amiable children have become obstreperous. Boys and girls who have always eaten are turning up diminutive noses at wholesome food. Babies and toddlers are refusing to sleep, developing other problems so fast their parents can't keep up with them.

Salads FOR MEN

MANY a wife who wails that her husband loathes salads might sing a different song were she to learn to cater to masculine taste in this important branch of the cuisine. Those airy structures that start with marshmal-lows and boiled dressings and proceed to a grand climax of whipped cream topped off with a cherry do very well for festive feminine gatherings.
