Every owner of fruit trees should
plan to give them some attention in
the way of spraying There is noth
ins that will pay so well if intelligent-
ly done The very enemies that prey
on the fruit trees prove a blessing to
the farmer who sprays, as their rav-
ages on unprotected orchards enable
hira to realize prices for his perfect

crop, but it makes packing and selling
easier Fruit buyers and dealers now

The principles of spraying are few
and simple, and the work is not com-
, plex. but very easy if done with a
power sprayer. Spraying is not an
en pens* as is generally supposed It
not only pays for itself but yields a
handsome profit besides.
Or< hards are not alone benefited by
spraying. Vineyards, track gardens
and. in fact, nearly all commercial
crops return proportionately as great
dividends for money invested in spray-
ing as do orchards.
Before starting to spray, a careful
study should be made of the insects
or fungi you have to deal with, in or-
der to determine the best mixture as
well as the best time to spray
The man who would be successful
in spraying must learn to know the
Insects and diseases by their appear-
ance and their work so as to app*y
the right treatment at the proper time

TWO excellent samples of the
spring styles for misses are pic-
tured here. Braids tot the lacy
kind i. ribbon and small flowers
are the materials used. Shapes, both
for misses and children, are much
like those shown for grown people,
hut the composition of these hats so
far as trimming and making Is con-
cerned are entirely different.
Fine plaitmgs of Yal or other light
laces are used with great success. In
i a lace Tuscan braid is made up
with plaited Yal lace and finished with
a ribbon bow in a dull rose color. It
is a very fine combination in Just the
right tones. This shape is always be-
coming and always fashionable.
Innumerable fancy bonnets grow

modes as long as possible. There is
no doubt they lend a hint of the spring-
time of life to any wearer whose race

The example shown here Is made of
white hair braid with rosettes and ties
of blue ribbon. The wreath of close-
set June roses across the front out-
lines the coronet, and the crown is a

Th9 woman of small means, whose
social position obliges her to dress
well on small income per annum, de-
vises many schemes whereby she may
give her limited wardrobe the ap-
pearance of great variety. Within the
past few seasons her greatest aid in
"putting up a bluff" has been the ubi-
quitous tunic. This style admits of
so many delightful variations that the
clever dresser does not fail to niaku
the best of the advantages it offers.
For instance, if one is possessed of
a well fitting white satin frock, one j
may vary the tunic worn over it, and
a variety of effects may be obtained. J
It is certainly worth trying by the
woman who has a limited number of
frocks and many occasions on which
she must wear them. Some little al-
teration or differences in the arrange- I
ment of shades worn with a frock
gives an air of novelty and interest.
Some women are content to tish out :
the same frock and wear It continu-
ally with even the self-same spray of
flowers pinned on. It does not seem
to occur to them what an almost end- i
less variety can be obtained by little
changes here and there, with perhaps
different ornaments and waysof dress-
Ing the hair. No woman should scorn
such details, and in her desire to look
her best she may easily get Into the
habit of critically examining herself
and her clothes.
To go back to the subject of tunics
and the wonderful ingenuity which la
exercised In them, that they have a
great effect in altering the shape and
appearance of the figure Is a fact most
of us have realized. A tall, slim figure
can, of course, stand practically any
' arrangement of this overdress, but
the short woman In this, as in many
other details of her toilet, has to be
most careful that no hard line, which
may detract In any way from her
weight, or any undue fullness, should
be worn. All lines should sweep down-

ing in view the wish to add length and
take away any suspicion of width In
