Department of Agriculture. , When maple trees are well out In leaf it is time to plant window boxes. Tender plants, such as are used frequently for box plants, cannot stand frost, and cool nights when the temperature drops below 45 degrees are likely to check their growth. Maple trees, howeyer, are good indicators of the time for planting all tender growth. 1C you build a window box, allow 12 inches for depth and at least eight Inches from front to back, the length, of course, to fit the location. These dimensions allow for an adequate reserve of both plant food and moisture In the. mass of soil in the box. Beforfe painting the box drill several one-inch holes In the bottom for drainage. Do not b'uild ornate boxes. Use an Inconspicuous paint such as dark green or gray. The plants are to catch the eye, not the container. The soil should be neither too sandy nor too heavy. Sandy soil dries out too quickly.

Soil prepared in advance with thoroughly lecomposed manure or fertilizer, or socalled potting soils supplied by florists, are recommended. Many annual flowering plants, jjrown outside or indoors from seed, may be transplanted into window boxes. Sweet alyssum, petunia, ageratum, candytuft, lobelia, nasturtium, lantana and mignonette often blossom In window boxes. For shady spots, plants that depend for their effect on ornamental foliage as well as on blossoms are suggested. Crotons, ferns, artillery plant, begonias and dracenas are a few of the effective ones. Some trailing vines that will hang over the edge of a window box are wandering-jew, bigleaf periwinkle, climbing fig and English ivy. After your box is planted make sure it gets sufficient water. The water evaporates rapidly and the supply must be maintained or the plants will suffer. 1 A SDNDAY SPECIAL. REIDSVILLE, N. C., June 4.— C. J.
