A Beautiful Lawn Not to Be Forgotten in Present Plans for Future Beauty.
PRESENT PLANS FOR FUTURE
By EVA RYMAN-GAILLARD.
Wo who grow plants in our rooms
do so for the beauty of their foliage,
flowers, or both, and get pleasure from
them to just the degree that we can
bring them to their utmost perfection.
To attain this (with plants of any
kind) one must know their character-
istics and requirements and consider
whether available conditions in the
home are adapted to the plants de-
If a plant standing in the open beds,
or in sunny, southern windows, is
making a grand showing of flowers,
or brilliantly-colored foliage, do not
get one like it expecting the same re-
sults unless it can have similar con-
ditions. The same results cannot be
secured if the plant is put into a
shaded or northern window.
On the other hand, primulas and
other plants tliat produce perfect flow-
ers in cool, semishaded rooms, will not
prove satisfactory In a place adapted
to those needing more tropical condi-
tions. The plant-lover who expects to
have all sorts of plants grow and
bloom in the same window will cer-
tainly be found wondering why some
of them do not come up to expecta-
Even the texture of the foliage
needs to be taken into consideration,
for rough-leaved plants that are injured
by frequent washings have no chance
to develop beautful foliage in a room
where furniture needs dusting every
Space is another factor that makes
for satisfactory window gardening, for
certainly half a dozen plants developed
to perfect form and good size are vast-
ly more beautiful than twice that num-
ber of deformed specimens crowded in-
to the space.
The question as to whether plants
should be turned or not is frequently
asked, and some people say: ' Oh,
don't turn them, they will not bloom,"
and so on. After years of working
among plants I hold thi3 opinion on
the subject: Tlants grown solely for
beauty as seen from ttie outside will
serve the purpose better if never
turned, leaving foliage and flowers
drawn toward the glass, but ordinarily
they are grown for the adornment of
the room and the enjoyment of those
inside, and should be turned often
enough to keep them symmetrical in
shape, for a lop-sided plant showing
all its stalks (to those in the room),
is not very ornamental.
Very often plants are bedded out
for the summer and then petted for
the winter garden window, and almost
as often the potting is delayed until
the plants must be taken in or fro-
zen: and the result is a lot of plants
that need a good share of the winter
In which to recuperate. i
August is none too early to aecido
which plants shall oe taken into the
window garden, and their treatment

will clean your sluggish liver better
than nasty calomel', it won t make jou
sick and you can eat anything you
want without being salivated. Your
druggist guarantees that each spoonful
will start your liver, clean your bowels
and straighten you up by morning or
you can have your money back. ( hil-
dren gladly take Dodson's Liver Tons
because it is pleasant tabling and
doesn't gripe or cramp or make them

If they are growing where crowded,
sacrifice a few branches from the sur-
rounding plants in order to give them
Bpace for shapely development, then
pinch out the ends of the branches on
the selected plants to force the forma-
tion of lateral branches. These lateral
branches furnish the blooming points
on geraniums and most flowering
plants, and the more of them that
can be forced to start, the more flow
ers one has during the winter.
Do not select plants that have
bloomed profusely during the summer,
for It is against nature to expect them
to keep it up during the winter. Above
all, after deciding which plants shall
be potted for the winter display, keep
all the buds pinched out. Do not let
a single blossom develop until the
plants are established in their winter
Do not leave plants in their beds
until forced by cold weather to take
them in. Plan to pot them while the
weather will permit having the house
open, making the change a gradual
one, for plants lifted and taken at
once into closed, fire-heated rooms
must show the effects of the treatment
and will need weeks and weeks in
which to regain their beauty.
Another thing to be considered is
this: Plants grpwing in the open
ground make a root-growth that very
often goes far beyond the limits of
an ordinary pot or tub. To crowd these
roots into a pot too small for them
is to bruise them and cause decay.
The better way, by far, is to cut down
all around the plants with a sharp
knife or spade, ten days or two weeks
before the plants are to be potted.
The sharp, clean cut heals quickly,
and if the soil is well watered (soaked)
before attempting to lift the plant,
one gets a complete ball of sound
roots, well-covered with soil that goes
into winter quarters with very little
evidence of having been disturbed.
Each of these plants taken sepa-
rately will seem like a little thing, but
each has a decided bearing on the
beauty of the midwinter floral display,
and for that reason each is, in reality,
an important point.

MIGHTY POWER OF LOVE
Great Truth In Words Which Emer-
son Is Put on Record as
It was Emerson who said, "An ac-
ceptance of the sentiment of love
throughout Christendom for a season,
would bring the felon and the outcast
to our side in tears, with the devotion
of his faculties to our service. Love
would put a new face on this weary
old world, in which we dwell as pa-
gans and enemies too long, and it
would warm the heart to see how fast
the vain diplomacy of statesmen, the
impotence of armies and navies and
lines of defense, would be superseded
by this unarmed child." Alas that
the sentiment has not been accepted,
but instead the world and the indi-
vidual have been laying their plans,
and directing their action, by a calcu-
lation of chances which, of course,
can be no bigger than the human
mind that does the calculating. That
love has not been tried is proved
by the collapse of commercial civili-
zation, but the things of commerce
and of calculation perish, while the
sentiment of love endures, because it
is of God, and being of God, is sure
in the end to triumph.—Universalist

a gardener was kept it used to be
the custom to keep a cask of lemon-

opportunity to speak to him on the

"No. mum, I don't," replied John.

Evidently Mr. Jimso Was to Get a
Plentiful Quantity of Fresh
Air That Night.
Mr. Jimso was in the habit of at-
tending meetings which often de-
tained him after the usual hour of re-
tirement. One night he was exceed-
ingly late, and his wife, after fretting
herself into a temper, went to bed,
determined to give her husband a
lesson. When she had been upstairs
about ten minutes she heard a knock,
so, putting her head out of the win-
dow, she inquired:
"Is that you, Tom?"
"Yes, Kate; come and open the
door," was the answer.
"What has kept you out so late?"
asked his wife.
"We have been discussing the real
benefits of fresh air," answered he.
"Well," returned his better half,
"you can lecture tomorrow night from
experience," and down went the win
dow with a bang.
