INFORMATION PICKED UP IN THE ORCHARD
Hats With Much Distinction
The Effect of Spraying.
Plant apple trees five or six Inches
deeper than other fruit trees
It is a mistake to assume that al-
ways a big tree will come into bearing
eooner than a small one.
If too big the storms may cause
them to be seriously injured before
the roots become firmly fixed.
A new orchard should be cultivated
from the start.
A tree which is infested with insects
will not thrive any better than a pig
covered with lice.
The farmer who starts an orchard
and has not studied the effects of
spraying might as well save his time
and expense. He will fall without
The lien Davis makes a brave show-
ing on the city fruitstnnds, but doesn’t
it cause a prejudice among the ignor-
ant against all apples?
An old broom from which most of
the brush has been worn off will re-
move loose bark from the trunks of
trees, and at the same time destroy
many hiding places of Insects.
A tree which is properly sprayed
and cared for, however, seldom has
any rough bark to remove.
Do not let the pears remain on the
trees until thoroughly ripe, or they
will become soft and "mealy.”
Pears should be picked when the
fruit is fully matured and placed be-
tween blankets In a dry, moderately
warm room to ripen.
If your peach trees were loaded with
very small fruit this year try picking
ofT every other one when the fruit is
Just lorined next year, and you will
probably have much larger peaches,
and a much better quality.
In yellow apples the only test of
ripeness is the seeds. When they
have turned a light brown it is time
It is safe to leave red apples several
days after the seeds indicate ripeness,
because the warm, mellow days of au
tumn add to their ripeness and beau
Pears are likely to be spotted or in-
jured i» other ways if bordeaux mix-
ture isn’t sprinkled on the orchard.
It is not generally known that all
varieties of Japanese plums are sterile
and will not bear fruit unless crossed
by other varieties.
It Is generally true that self-pollin-
ated fruit is not as large or vigorous
as fruit from erossed-sterilized blos-
soms on tho same tree.
lo produce apples which best con-
form to the ideals of mankind requires
the best of effort und cruftiness to out-
wit Insects and diseaso.
In describing the fruit the word
"base" means the purt of the apple
at the stem end; "apex,” tho portion
at the blossom end; “cavity,” is the
depression around the flower end;
“calyx,” the so-called flower in the
apex of tlie apple. The general form
is referred to as being “round,” “ob-
late,” "conical.” and "oblong.” As re-
gards size, apples aro said to be
“small” when two and one-half inches
in diameter or under; from two and
one-half to three and one-half Inches
they are termed "medium,” and above
ANY one of the three examples of
** fine hats which are shown here Is
of a sort to make the observer of
class in millinery turn to look twice
at it. Hats are as numerous as roses
and the pretty ones inspire an admira-
tion as frank and untiring as that
given to the flowers. Here are three
totally dissimilar, each vying with
the others, as an example of excel-
lence In the milliners’ art, and all
far above the average in point of dis-
tinction in style.
The largest of the three has a
rather small crown with soft top,
garnished with a ribbon band, which
terminates in a small fiat bow at the
side. The brim is wonderfully grace-
ful, curving upward slightly and
widening at the left side. It is a
shape better suited to mature women
than to the youthful wearer on whom
it is pictured.
The two-toned, long, upstanding
plume of ostrich at the front is cal-
culated to make one w-onder at the
dexterity of the dyers and rejoice at
the discrimination of the trimmer who
has used it so effectively.
A small and what we call a
"Frenchy" shape, is a picturesque and
dressy model, combining a narrow
brim of velvet and crown of silver
lace over a vivid satin. The brim
rolls up at the left and droops decid-
edly at the right side, where an in-
dentation breaks its line and adds to
its becomingness. It is trimmed with
a single metallic rose and finished
w-ith a long tie of handsome moire
ribbon. This is mounted to the brim
at the left under an odd and pretty
The curious shape of the third
model catches one’s attention. It is
a beautifully made hat with crown
that has a sharp slope upward from;
right to left. The velvet covering Is
laid on smoothly and piped with
satin, and satin is used for the fac-
The shape serves as a background
upon which a splendid bow of rich
moire ribbon is mounted. The rib-
bon is wired at the edges and the
bow reveals how much of an art it is
to convert a straight length of mate-
rial into a trimming of such expres-
The cook is happy, the
other members of the family
are happy—appetites sharpen, things
brighten up generally. And Calumet
Baking Powder is responsible for it all.
For Calumet never fails. Its
wonderful leavening qualities insure

How Ice Man Got the Booze.
The day was hot and the patient ice
man had taken his usual care in get-
ting the ice in the box just right and
then mopping up the little water that
got on the floor in the operation. He
really was a good ice man and de-
served to be rewarded.
"Here is a bottle of beer; you need
it on a hot day like this," said the
"I can’t accept anything from pa-
trons, lady," the ice man said, as he
eyed the bottle lovingly.

Still the iceman pondered. “But,”
he added, as an afterthought, "if you
put it on the back porch I’ll steal it.

mother which is to be executed by

a statue be erected and the children
were the first to respond, sending in
an avalanche of pennies. The cen-

Cement frequently has several
shades of color after it is dried. The
practical way is to wash the entire sur-
face with cement made by mixing two
parts of Portland cement and one part
of marble dust, with sufficient water
to reduce it to the consistency of white-
wash, applying with a common white-
The wall has to bo thoroughly dried
for several hours previous to applying

wet during the work and the day after.
It is decidedly important to do the

Strawberry plants fall to grow more
frequently from being set too deeply,
than from any other cause. The
crown should always be above the sur-
face of the ground. A dibble is better
than a trowel for planting. When the
hole Is made the long, fine roots
should be placed in the hole, and the
earth pressed very tightly about them.
If there is danger of a dry time—
water may be put in the dibble hole,
and allowed to soak away before the
plant is set in
roots and spread on spaded ground In
a well sheltered corner along a fence.
Cover with straw, leaves, burlap, or old
carpets or quilts.
Another way Is to dig up nnd shake
the soil from tho roots and hang roots
up In the barn or shed.

have been recently brought out is pic-

the back and the front.

which is to be washed is done in white !
or in the same color as the negligee j
and copied from the handsome import- !

ing vines and scattered blossoms are
imitated in silk flews.
The favorites, those that are “beat '
sellers.” are made of cotton crepe dec- j
orated with embroidery that is easy to
do and rapidly worked. Great numbers :
of gayly embroidered kimonos and
