There never was a better time to do eithe)', than ijow. Lumber, cement anl other l|asic materials are selling al rock-bottom prices. So are electrical and plumbing and roofing supplies.

About 1,600 banks faUed in the United States during the year 1932. OVcr 5.1400 banks have faUed since Ja?iiiary l. 1929, More thaiJ 10,000 baidcB have fe^eld since 1920.' What is the.ahsw§r to the.question thefe appalling jstatlstics inspire? It wUl not d6 to say that these ba^ failed because they were dishonestly px. ine;ffii:iently managed. Mai^ of them did fail for one or the other or both these reasons, of coarse,. But the .great majority of thM Were conducted honestly and in accordance with approved bank- tag principles; and yet they failed. It will.not do, either, to say that they fkOed because of general ecp- nconib conditions. Some of them did, of cinirse, but economic conditions have been ais bad in Canada as in ithfe tfeited States, and yet we are told thjire has not been a bank failure ior more than a year in Canada, The only answer that seems to fit the case ;is that the SYSTEM is firn- dam^tally unfound'. There must be sokne stractnral weakness somewhere in the meclianjsm that renders It peculiarly liable to yield under the sl^htest unusual strain. As to What that structiu-al weak- nws may be perhaps even high au^thoritles would disagree. But that the remedy niust come through gitater centralization and more di- rett , governmental control there s^lJtns to "be a; growing consensus, lite Bank of England,«through its control over the issue of bank notes, the eiomrton form of currency, ab- Bcfetely dominates the banking^sltu- Btion In England, while its function as the manager of the; public debt oit Great Britain and as holder of the deposits belonging to the govem- nfent necessarily give it an official standing that makes it reall3 & part of the government machinery. Perhaps ;.the United States will haVe to come to sometl^ing like that. Perhaps we shall have to establish a great central bank under the-di- redt cohtrol of the govemmerit. with all other banks in reality branches ^f ft andiuhder equally strict govem: mental regulation. . ^ One thl^g the present'crisis has deniohstrated to a degree never before 'fiflly jealiJSEd. And that is ho\i coihpietely the business of the coun- jtry -'h 'bound up with the effective i functioning of the banks. In everj state in the Union business is practical^ at a standstill because the banks &re closed. The most ordinarj: and commonplace business transactions are impeded and to a great j degree completely halted' because : men cannot use checks freely. this demonstration of the absp'lutelj; essential function the b«Aks perform there can hardly be ahyiO^at froih the conclusion/that it is B-psrt of the duty of government to see to itjthat this function is not iiiterrttptedr In former times the I^aewaifovemment has not hesitat- (BA to Vesprt to the extrernest exer- , else of its powers to kisep railroad tiro^ ruirnii^ hi order that the nAfli.Jnight be delivered.

On |he list was a letter George Washington once wrote from Mt. Vernoii in which Washington spoke of 'th^ slovenly farmers of this country." i Washington was not slovenly: himself in farming or anything else and evidently a lot of the contemporarjl Virginia farmers were. At least that is what Washington thought and that is what he wrote. i j of the men editing that catalogue put in the letter: "This this description of remarkable letter. in which the first President of our country,speaks in such disparaging terms df the American farmer; is the type of letter which might well have been written by Herbert C. Hoover as the (self-deemedi) aristocrat's opinion of boi-ing classes." It is ama:zing the American la- hat any American citizen should lia |Ve gone so far out of his way jto insult the President of the Uniteid States, and it is gi-ati- fylng to know that the National Art Galleries immediately discharged him and offered profuse apologies to the President.

The city marshal stood it as long as he thought the law required him- to and then he arrested the qUartette and took them to police court where they were fined $2.50 iaplece.

It can be done us-, ually from atxiut the middle of March to the middle of April. If planted too late, hot weather Is likely to overtake them before the^ blossoms have a Sianc? to develop. S\ireet peas demand rich soil and pler^ty of fertilizer. Somewhat heavy loam, if well drained, is more sat-, isfactory than a lighter soil because it holds the necessary moisture. Careful preparation of the soil is of great importance for success with sweet peas. It is better to have it made ready the fall before, if this has not been done, just, before planting time in spring will do. First a trench should be dug. to the depth of a loot or a foot and a half, and about the width of a spade. The soil should be made quite fine and then replaced loosely in the trench with alternate layers of straw or well rotted manure to Insure its being fairly porous. Plant the seeds deep if you want good results. Sweet peas must have their roots kept cool. Through the deoter of the prepared soil area a V-shaped furrow about six Inches deep is dug. Into this the seeds are dropped two or three Inches apart and covered with .an Inch or so of soil. As the plapts come up and continue |to grow, soil is gradually filled in around the stems until the ground level is reached. In doing this, care must be taken never to cover the crown of the plant. If the trench has been prepared properly, it will be well drained so that water wiU not stand in it. WhUe the plants need considerable moisture during the early part of their growtK, any excess water must be taken care of so that the sprouting seeds will not rot. Sweet peas need plenty of nitrogen, and they do not grow well in acid soil. A nitrogen culture witl^ which .to inoculate the seed before planting can be purchased. It helps a great deal in bringing about an early vigorous growth to start the nnes on their way toward Jjeautififl blossoms. Some soils have sufficient lime. However, if you suspect an acid condition in your garden, you can make a simple test. Place a strip of litmus paper, bought at a drug store, in a glass of water into which a sample of soil from the garden has been stirred and allowed to settle. If the paper turns pink, the soil is imdoubtedly add; If it changes to a tint ^or shade of blue, the chances a,re Jt, is all right lor growing sweet peas without .adding lime.
