Haddock, Remember last summer when you had so many beans ready in your garden at one time that you couldn't handle them? Or was it a surplus of radishes you had, and then wished there were more later? You can prevent that happening again this year. Just do your gardening on paper first while it's too early to start the outside work. That's the suggestion of Lany Grove, garden specialist at Iowa State College. Your wintertime gardening equipment need be only paper, pencil, a few seed catalogs and perhaps a copy of the 1940 Iowa Garden Guide, which you can get from your county* ox- tension director. That, plus a good memory of last year's gardening. You can figure the amount of seed you'll need so you can order it now. You can plan successive plantings so you won't have too much of one vegetable all at one time. Plan to (It your family food needs— for use fresh from the garden and *or conserving for next winter. And plan, too, to plant the vegetables your family likes. Oiling hogs in winter may be inviting trouble from pneumonia. Lime sulfur spray or dip is safer, says Dr. K. W. Stouder of Iowa State College. Castalia: Sunday School at 10 a. m. Worship Service at 11:15 a. m. Prayer and Bible study every Thurs day evening at the parsonage. Postville: Sunday School at 11 a. m.

Peterson and his staff, like all county treasurers' offices, when it comes time to issue automobile licenses, are confronted with the statement: "I want the same number I had last year, so I won't have to memorize a new one." When asked what the number is, the purchaser advises he can't remember. Peterson and his fellow workers advise that they fill all such requests— they have the advantage of former files—and everyone is happy.

Christian Science Churches The subject oi the lesson-sermon in all Churches of Christ, Scientist, for Sunday, February 10, 1946, is "Spirit". Tho goldni. text Is "The Spirit s<- rcheth all things, yea, the deep thlnt,. of God". (I Corinthians 2:10) Selections from the Bible and from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy comprise the lesson-sermon. One of the Bible citations reads: "No man; hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God' dwelleth in us,! and his love is perfected In us. Here-' by know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us. of his Spirit" (I John 4: 1 .2,13) From the Christian Science textbook la the following: "Spirit, God, is infinite, all. Spirit can have no opposite. That matter is substantial has life and sensation, is on" of the false beliefs of mortals, and exists only in a supposltitioi . mortal consciousness. Hence, a* wo approach Spirit and Truth, we lose the consciousness of matter". tr>. 278> PICTURE FRAME SHOULD FLATTER ITS SUBJECT Just Received—A shipment of U. S.

ASK FOR BIG GAIN EGG MASH ClIAS. TATRO, Castalia VERN HUI'FER, Guilder Store, Poslvllle - L. F. PUTNAM, Postville Choose a frame to flatter a picture as you choose a hat to dramatize your face. This is one of the rules to follow when framing pictures, according to Emma Kitt, home economist at Iowa Stntc College. Simple, natural wood frames or frames made from molding may be the answer for many types of pictures. If unpointed, the frame should be waxed to preserve the wood and facilitute cleaning. Painted frames may be used satisfactorily, too, Miss Kitt points out, and the color may be used to accent n color in the picture, Be careful, though, to paint the frame no darker than the darkest shade in the picture and no lighter than the lightest tint. A.too- dark frame seems to jump out from the wall, while one too light may be lost against the wall covering. Vying for importance, with the frame's relationship to -the picture is the tie-up of the picture and frame to tho whole room. To be most effective, pictures, should be scaled to the room and to the spaces delegated to them, Small pictures scattered over the walls look lonesome, • TURN YOUR Used Car Into Cash OR Sparrows carry lice und mites to chickens, so keep them out of the chicken houses.
