Don' ts' Listed For Guidance Of Bird Lover The condition of canary reflects proper . or improper ' treatment.. Here are some "dont's": Don't have him in too. light a place If you want soft sweet songs from your bird. Birds sing sweetest In the dusk. No one wants a canary that yells and shrieks. Don't leave the bird In the room In the winter when you open the windows and doors to air. Don't leave your bird in the room while you are sweeping and dusting. Dust Injures his throat. Don't keep your bird In the kitchen where there Is steam or darhp air.' Don't under any consideration give your bird any sweets. S Don't hang the cage In the sun shine, except for a short time after bath. All birds continue in better health if not near a window and too much sunshine is bad for them. Don't fall to sea that your bird has plenty of gravel in his. cage. Don't allow your bird to have any hemp seed, everything possibly two or three seeds a week from your hand to tame him. Don't let your bird bathe more than two or three times a week. This Is sufficient tovkeep him In good health, and does not debilitate him. Don't feed your bird common or uneleaned bird seed. Dusty, dry, stale, inferior seeds ruin the bird's son,", and affect his health, and while the effect does not show at oi.e, much of the severity of the mmilts that canaries have is due to Inferior food and othlng else. Don't hang sulphur in the cage. Don't feed too much red pepper. To conserve space In ths garden, sow seeds of-radlahes and carrots together. : ThS radishes will pave the waj for the carrots and may be pulled within a few weeks. You can sow poppy seed out In the open any time you get it. Merely scatter It upon the soil some quiet day so the wind won't do too good a Job of scattering it.

' The scheme is Japanese throughout Tiny arched bridges, temples and other architectural details are in harmony with the Oriental idea. " fei - - By A. M. WOODMAN " Landscape Engineer This article is written chiefly to help home , owners having small properties, with-the house usually extending from 25 to SS feet from the front sidewalk. i The front garden open to public, view should present a pleasing ap pearance. An . open lawn provides breadth and forms an Ideal setting for shrubbery and flowers. The walk to the house should usually be straight, but may be slightly curved. Straight cement ts not as pleasing as cement .flagstones or blocks of natural atone, .with moss or grass planted in between. A grass panel between me runways of the garage driveway is good. .The shrub border at the souse hould varv from five to six feet at the" corners and on euner sias i the entrance. for -double planting of shrubs; three to four feet Is good between the corner and entrance. HEDGE. SUGGESTED There are several ways of treat ing sides" of property; a formal clipped, hedge along the property line: grass coming up to hedge; shrubs planted close to boundary line, but left unpruned to form a loose hedge; an Informal shrub border bordering the lawn. The garden bordering either aide of the driveway may be treated In a similar manner, depending, of course, upon space a.vaiiaDie ior nlsntlnar. Sneclmen trees of shrub with symmetrical shape and unus ual texture of foliage may oe planted at intersections of walks and driveways, and on the lawn at the sides framing the house, never In the center of the lawn. It Is imnortant near the house to use shrubs having symmetrical nd fine texture of foliage, never using loss, sprawling shrubs -el coarse texture of foliage. It Is possible to have many fine combinations of shrubs with the wonderful resources at our command. Shrubs at the corners and at the entrance may be either of the vertical or round heaBed type. ' ; SHRUBS LISTED . Appropriate shrubs for these po sitions are: Italian Cypress, Irish Juniper, Irish Yew; Thuya bever-leyensls, with low Creeping Junipers or Erica medlMfrranea at the base: Eugenia myrtlfolia, Escal- lonla montevldensls or Plttosporum in variety, with Dwarf Myrtles or Veronicas at the base; the tall pink Heather' (Erica melanthera), with low-growing Ericas,. or Dlosma. at the base. In between such shrubs use car- win Barberry, Mabtfnia, Erica re- germtnans, . Bekaf persoluta alba. A' Mia, species or unamaecyparis fJaDsnese conifers), and Plmeua. These are a few Indications of good groupings.
