HAVE YOU HEARD?

If you like dwarf plants, a new discovery by the U. S. Department of Agriculture may turn out to be just what you're looking for. Scientists treated bean seedlings with compounds of the chemical nicotium, and found that it shortened the internodes or sections of stems between leaves, reducing final height of the plant. It isn't known yet how permanent the effect is. If it turns out to be only temporary, you might use it to spray seedlings to make them less tall and spindly.

That afternoon, he talked back to Mrs. Brown when she asked him to run an errand. That night he argued with his father about doing his homework.

Pick the right roses

When you say rose, the chances are that what you want is a hybrid tea rose.

Can today's mothers nurse their babies?

Old farmhouse goes to town

There was good material in the 75-year-old farmhouse that Mr. and Mrs. Henry L. Thomas bought in Clear Lake, Iowa. Built of stone dug from a rocky island in the lake and of timbers felled nearby, it was the product of a period when houses were constructed to last a long, long time.

First, buy a muzzle that fits. Any dog will fight an ill-fitting muzzle because it's uncomfortable or painful. Cheap muzzles often have sharp projections such as points of wire or poorly clamped rivets. But any dog will learn to wear a comfortable muzzle if you start him early enough with it.

Pacific Northwest

In this region roses are easily grown, and winter hardiness and sun fading are not problems. Selections are based chiefly on the shape, color, and appeal of the flowers, and the foliage and general growing habit of the plants. In all cases, roses should be located well away from trees and shrubs so they'll get hours of full sun.
