Users report remarkable results when this new fertilizer is applied to lawns or gardens, and one out-, standing feature, they claim, puts it in a class by itself; it can not "burn" grass or flowers, no matter how heavily applied. Weedless cow manure Is another specialty here. A huge pile. 100 yards long, subjected to the recent weeks of heavy rain, did not germinate a single weed a strong tribute to its guaranteed weedless qualities. half filled With sand or shot.

To it they tie on the heavy hawser or cable and it is pulled in hand over hand by stevedores on the dock who have been engaged beforehand to "take lines." It the ship has come in unannounced and they can't false anyone to take a line, the mate has to put a sailor overside and on the dock. They used to jump and in this broad jump the prize for the winner was the stringer-piece on the dock and the penalty for the loser was a plunge into the water and the chance of being crushed between the ship and the piling. "Pier-head jumping" has been declardVtoo dangerous and it Isn't dOue "any more. Now -they rig out a ai'go boom and the sailor goesWlrf a rope sling. -toco TAKE A LINE.

This precious little rose, originally discovered in the window box of a peasant's cottage high in the Swiss Alps, grows only a few inches high; a mature, blooming specimen is easily covered by a teacup. Its tiny double flowers, no larger than a dime when full blown, open from the daintiest buds imaginable are borne on thin, wiry stems an inch or so in length and are double, fragrant, very lasting and of a rich pink. Unlike other miniature roses. Rouletti a i permanently a dwarf. It is easily grown as a house plant In a small pot, requiring little attention, although it Is hardy oul of doors and a-gcra in the ock garden. Because of its rarity and daintiness it is attracting great interest from horticulturists Though the plant is so small, it has a large root system that requires little or no fertilizing, and it lives to a great age. 2B.HB 27.24 Redding nil Sacramento.

MOORING A SHIP McCormick Bob and Whispering Dick have come forth with a full explanation that will be of invaluable aid to any one interested in docking or mooring a ship. Mooring a ship, they explain, isn't Bs simple as parking an automobile alongside the curb. For one thing, when a ship loses speed it also loses "steerage-way" and becomes more or less uncontrollable and at the mercy of tides and currents. A smart captain stays well, away from shore structures, remembering that a ship can become a powerful weapon of destruction if thrown with force a dock or wharf. If you have to dock a 10-000-toliller you will try to get tugs to SAN l- KANCISCO Ml I IIOROI.OIIK Al improvements. In order to supply cargoes to maintain these great sections of the land are being turned to grain, corn and seed growing. Road building machinery is another thing in strong demand as the country is expanding its highway systems. Pumps, oil, handling equipment, barrels and ether materials are also needed as major oil field developments are taking place all through South America. "The credit situation in the Argentine has improved tremendously and money is again quite free tor development purposes, There ane opportunities for young men in South America in the engineering fields. The country needs men skilled In civil, electrical, radio and mechanical engineering. There is no -demand, though, for clerical workers, as this supply iB furnished locally.
