There arc a lot of odd jobs to be
done in the garden now. Separate
violets and replant them in soil that
ha« been enriched with fertilizer,
either commercial or barnyard. Few
people realize the importance of
separating and feeding: violets yet
32 EGGS IN ONE DAY?
Even a top-notch hen would have to work overtime
each month to supply you with enough eggs to eat
in one day in order to obtain the daily calcium ration
required by your system.
Here’s a tip—
Just one quart of Bay City Creamery milk
contains as much calcium as does 32 eggs!

there are many complaints on all
sides that “violets aren’t what they
used to be.”
If your wisteria failed to bloom
last spring, give it some attention
now. Cut a circular trench about 3
feet in diameter around the trunk
and add a pound of bone meal to
the soil as it is replaced. Root-prun-
ing is not enough by itself. New
weak growth should be removed
from the vine, leaving the old hard
wood on which the blossoms will
appear next spring.
Feed chrysanthemums every ten
days with liquid manure or commer-
cial fertilizer (2 tablespoonfuls to
a plant) until their buds show color.
A good synthetic liquid manure muy
be made by dissolving an ounce of
ammonium sulphate in two gallons
Aphids along the stems of chry-
santhemums (or any other plant)
will sap their strength and in ex-
treme cases curtail the devclopmt nt
of buds. Fight these pests with a
spray containing nicotine sulphate
or phyrethrum in solution or dust
the plants with tobacco dust.
Cutting of boxwood taken in Oc-
tober root eaily. Plant them in a
mixture of sand and peat moss pr
in very friable soil. Their only real
j requirement is constant moisture
Camellias should be watered often
when they are in bud to prevent
shedding. However, make certain
that thi drainage is good. Combat
! tea scale by spraying with an oil
(emulsion solution. This scale usual-
ly starts at the bottom of the plant
and works up. Control it before the
flowers appear, taking pecial care
to spray the lower side of leaves.
Do not spray after the buds b gin

Dengue is characterized by sud
den onset, headache, and pain in the
back and limbs, especially the joints.
The fever is of short duration, but
recovery is slow. While causing
great discomfort, the disease is sel
dom fatal. However, the loss of time
involved is a great economic factor.
One attack is generally followed by
immunity for a few years.
Dengue fever is caused by the
bite of the same mosquito that
transmit yellow fever. Those who
have not studied the mosquito ar-
unable to distinguish the different
species. Even though certain mos-
quitoes may be incapable of caus-
ing diseases such as D nr > • or ma-

The Prairie Center Home Demon-
stration Club met Thursday, Oct. 2,
with Mrs. Leo Johnson of El Ma-
ton, one of our former members.
The roll call was answered by each
member telling, “How I Can Save
Steps in My Kitchen.” Several good
ideas were given. The officers for
the following year were elected as
follows: Mrs. Stellu Pierce, presi-
dent; Mrs. Mabel Johnson, vice-
president; Mrs. Frank Stallard,
Council Delegate; and Mrs. Ray
Dorsey, secretary and treasurer.
Delicious refreshments of punch
and cookies were served by the
hostess to eleven members.
The next meeting will be with
Mrs. S. C. Blown, October 17.
“Rearrangement of the Kitchen,”
was the keynote of the demonstra-
tion given by Miss Alma Stewart
to the Prairie Center Home Dem-
onstration Club women September
18, at the home of Mrs, J. K. Dar-
nall. Miss Stewart said that many
times a kitchen can be made more
convenient, as well as more attrac-
tive, just by a simple rearrange-
ment of the furniture. She also told
us that one of the biggest things
to do now is to see that we have
