Decorating how to go about it

IF WE'D ask 10,000 of you to describe your ideal home, we'd get 10,000 different answers. True, some of you would agree on a general type of house: Cape Cod, ranch house, or modern. But that word home means vastly more than the architectural design of four walls and a roof. Home includes colors and patterns you like to live with... furnishings and fabrics that fit your way of life... space for hobbies... comfort and convenience for every member of your family.

How to help your child be orderly

"I KEEP at Tommy all the time, but I just can't get that child to hang up his clothes!" wails the mother who fancies she can teach orderliness by preaching.

AUGUST GARDEN GUIDE

ANNUALS show their worth this month. The hot, dry months force them into full bloom. Help keep the show in good order. Pick off the faded flower heads as regularly as you can. Making seeds puts a big drain on the strength of your plants. Many gardeners don't realize that they can get a second big display of blooms if the old flower heads are kept cut off. There's also less chance that your plants will self-sow. Seedlings seldom come true to their parent variety when winds and insects can cross-pollinate the parent plants.

Your dog and mine

In view of your desire for the experience, we'd say go it alone. Then, too, presence of a stranger is often upsetting to the female. Be calm and 'comforting. Most important thing is to break sac at each pup's nose as it makes its bow into the world, to allow for immediate intake of air (the moment a youngster leaves its mother, it's on its own in every way, including breathing).
