The war demand drew heavily upon the black-walnut timber supply. The condition became alarming, as it was reootrnized that unless there should be a decrease in the cutting, the merchantable trees would soon be gone. Fortunately, however, the war etided before the larger trees entirely disappeared. Now a reaction Is setting In. IMack walnuts are being planted In small numbers by many persons, directly in harmony with the policy advocated by the United States Department of Agriculture. A conspicuous instance of planting occurrod near Saginaw, Mich. Iast fall. W. S. Linton, president of the Northern Nut Growers association, procured .0 bushels of walnuts from titles at the home of (Jeorge Washington at Mount Vernon. Va. These were shipped to Saginaw and in the main distributed among the school children f the county and planted, two in a table. Used judiciously it will reduce the cost of egg and meat production j from 23 to 30 per cent. The garbage must be fresh ar.d free from all fer- mentation and sourness. The intrinsic j value of garbage as a poultry feed is due to the fact that it provides a ! varied ration which tits all the needs ; ud requirements of the flock. j One explanation of why the sinail flock owner, with his backyard bevy j of hens, secures heavy production of j eggs, hir.ges around the fact that he I emphasizes the use of table scraps In j the ration.

STEWARD LET DOWN LIGHTLY hill, on school grounds and along public roads and streets. Two thousand were placed in a nursery for later transplanting in one of the public parks of Saginaw. When it became known that these nuts were available for planting, very keen and widespread interest in them developed. Telephone cads for them were numerous. Automobilists drove for many miles to cull in person. Sine then, enthusiastically attended meetings have been held in various places in the state to consider the question of black walnut tree planting along the highways. The suggestion is made that in view of the known differences of hardiness existing In many species of native trees, special care should be exercised to avoid extensive planting Many a man is giveu credit for being a hustler when he Is only nervous.

Sometimes It is wise to set off a small charge In the bottom of the hole to form a chamber and after the hole has cooled tamp it full of slit cartridges. If the soil Is dry, the paper covering of the cartridges may be slit with a sharp knife and the cartridges tamped into a solid mass with a wooden stick. Cartridges may be divided by slitting the paper around and breaking. Never attempt to slit a frozen cartridge. To prime the charge, cut off the proper length of fuse, allowing at least 2 feet per minute required to get to safety after firing. Open the cap box and allow one cap to slide Into the hand. Never pick or pry out a cap with a stick or wire, as they are very sensitive. Slip the end of the fuse snugly Into the open end of the cap. Crimp the cap on with a crimper. If the charge Is to be fired in water, apply a little grease around the top of the cap. With the crimper handle, or a stick the size of a lead pencil, make a hole In the side of the cartridge, inclining it so the part to be occupied by the cap will be parallel with the side of the cartridge. If the cartridge is to be fired under water, apply ?oni water- For your daughter's sake, use Red Cross Ball Blue In the laundry.

Any straight round stick, about 11 Inches in diameter and 5 feet long, will do for tamping. Never use iron. Moist clay, moist loam, and moist sand, following one another in the order named, make the best tamping material. The material should be packed lightly for four or "six inches, and then rammed as hard as the surrounding soil. Before firing see that everybody is out of the way. In firing a safety fuse it is best to split it, exposing the powder for an inch, apply a match until the powder spits, and then run to safety. If the charge fails, let It alone until next day. For large jobs It will often be found advisable to buy an electric blasting outfit, which will fire several charges at once.

Black Walnut Trees Are Favored for Public Parks, Private Lawns and Along Highways. habit, and as nearly as possible In the section where they are to be planted. No harm Is likely to result from transferring such trees from northern points to more southerly locations in so far as reaction to temperature is concerned. The suitability of the black walnut for home planting Is now being recognised as never before. That It Is one of our most valuable American trees and that its numbers have steadily been decreasing has long been realized. To a considerable extent this tree was planted on the western prairies by the first settlers in compliance with the timber and stone act, repealed In the late eighties, which required Uiat trees be planted In proportion to land taken up from the government. Some planting has been going on In states and districts beyond the range to which the species Is indigenous. Even now the forest service of the United States Department of Agriculture does not advise Its planting in pure stands on land from which income Is necessary during the lifetime of the average planter, as no returns in timber are probable under at least 35 or 40 years from the time of planting. Department experts recommend that the walnut be included among the species for planting In public parks, on large, private lawns and dooryards, along highways, and in out-of-the-way places on the farm. It is invariably the single tree planted in the open, apart from other trees, that develops Into Uie most perfect specimen. It is such trees that produce the greatest quantity of nuts. Usually the finest quality of kernel is from this source. The Key to Success Is Work There Is no Substitute for It! In order to do your best work, you must be healthy. You must sleep soundly at night, your nerves must be strong, steady and under perfect control. If you are accustomed to drinking tea or coffee with your meals or between meals, you may be loading yourself with a very great handicap. Your nervous system may be stimulated beyond what is natural for you. For tea and coffee contain thein and caffeine. These are drugs as any doctor can tell you. They are known to irritate the nervous system by their action and to cause restlessness and insomnia, which prevent the proper recuperation of the vital forces. If you want to be at your best, capable of doing the very best work that lies in you, why not stop drinking tea and coffee? Drink Postum, the rich, satisfying beverage made from scientifically roasted cereals. Postum' contains absolutely no drugs of any kind, but in flavor tastes much like rich coffee. It helps nerve and brain structure by letting you get sound restful sleep. Postum comes in two forms: Instant Postum (in tins) made instantly in the cup by the addition of boiling water.

During the summer garbage decomposes and ferments quickly and it must be fed before it reaches this stage. The feeding of garbage is la-vored during cold weather because In the winter the refuse keeps better. Suburban flock-owners may often secure the garbage from neighboring families who do not keep hens. This source of feed may be so plentiful that the Bock -owner can expand his hen-keeping operations and even afford to pay a small amount for the garbage. Experiments in feeding garbage at the government experiment farm at Beltsville, Md., indicate that ten hens will consume about one quart of garbage daily. A suitable dry mash as a supplement to this garbage consists of three parts by weight of cornmeal, one part of bran, one part of middlings and 5 pet" cent of meat scraps. This mash Is kept before the fowls all the time. If the table scraps contain much fruit and vegetable peelings. Plan Next Year's Garden. Right now Is the best time for us to begin to plan for our garden of next year. We can get out on the ground now and see what is what better than we can in the spring or at any time until the crop is growing again next summer. Then It Is too late to make changes.
