So off to New Zealand we shall go. OLD NATIVES KNEW It as the Long White Cloud. Six thousand miles from California. It lies on the other side of the Pacific as far below the equator as the California-Oregon line ia north. Two Islands comprise It Residents are British: chief trade is livestock and agriculture. Progressive yes. Attractions the rainbow-colored thermal areas of Rotorua, Glow Worm Caves of Waltomo, Southern Alps where glaciers melt in the lower tree ferns, and sports that include 20-and-upward-pound trout fishing, deep-sea fishing, hunting, and what have you. AND THERE YOU ARE with a travel folder In 90 words. It takes IS days, each way, by fast ship. But the real Interest, to me. lies in the native life. Days to the eastward. In the Society Islands, lies Raiatea the "Ha-waiki" of the ancients. The "Land of Spreading Heavens." It wsa from Hawaikl. legends say, that isianders traveled by great canoes to ihe ' ong White Cloud, and there established their homes Living still in the native manner, the Maoris today rank as the purest of all Polynesian strains. They use few fires. Boiling springs and mud pools keep the atmosphere In even warmth, and cook their foods, and wash their native garments. I SHOULD LIKE to take you to see them, and to watch the sunset tone the white slopes of Ngauruhoe, but "deadline" is at hand, and the wheels of land transport are calling. I go far inland today to breathe the air of pines. MY EARLIEST recollectlble that's a new 27-cent word, marked up from a dims desire was to have some printer set my name In a Una of type, just so I could stamp It on the Infantile stories I wrote. Today I wish I knew of some way to stir up ambition to.complete my work regardless of the lure of springtime, regardless of names, regard-leas of anything! THEY ALL SAY the Index of a successful man Is a clean desk. I often wondered how ' it was done. Yesterday I learned. It's the desk top they are talking about not the drawers. I looked Into two such desks, and today I'm successful also! In caaual view there are; 1 fountain pen set, 2 HHng boxes (empty), 1 reminder pad (with a notation). 2 penoils i sharpened). 1 brass ashtray, and. against the wall, 1 relief map in colors of the big island of Hawaii. THIS RELIEF MAP is primarily decoration. It's also to help me picture the terrain of an island I knew pretty well, for some day, when the mood appeals. I shall ramble in words back through an experience that happened there. I shall get the modern American atmosphere ' that's been plopped on Hawaii al) mixed up with legendary gods and goddesses, and tell what actually . happened to that rising business man who stepped into a similar combination.

ORIGINAL 'TEDDY BEARS' KOALA Park, Sidney, Austra- . lla, ia the home of about 75 Koala bears, friendly little fellows that make devoted pets. The "teddy bear" or a decade ago was a close replica of this native of Australia. It Is difficult to keep these animala alive away from the southern continent, since they subsist entirely on a type of eucalyptus leaves found nowhere else. These special green provisions come regularly to the park from distant points. SIXPENNY GREETINGS HIGHLIGHTS of the holiday season In Great Britain in ? y ' t Soap Box Sonnets manuring in the manner for Flowering Currants. PERFECTION IN BERBERISES THE new Introductions of Ber-berises, and the crosses raised of late years, good as they are for foliage and berrlea, have by no means eclipsed the popular Steno-phylla and the broader-leafed Darwlnil, These remain the two finest orange-yellow May flowering shrubs there are. These Berbertaea will do well in almost any soil which has been dug a spade depth. It pays, however, to prepare a site specially for them by digging two spades depth and working thoroughly into it rotted manure or leaf-mold. That can easily be done If you devote a bed entirely to these Berberises which Is the best plan with these shrubs wherever it can he managed. To obtain the finest possible results from the shrubs, give them a fairly sunny, sheltered position. The eouth face of the shrubbery is best, although they will do quite well in a situation with an east or west exposure. Plant the shrubs in the front row and allow them ample room to develop their graceful arching habit. CARE OF DAPHNES THE pink, dark red and white varieties of Daphne Mezereum take pride of place as the earliest shrubs to flower unprotected in the open garden. In sheltered situations and mild winters, we have had them In bloom In January, although late February and March is their normal season. Almost any soil will suit the-Daphnes, and ordinary spade-depth digging la enough preparation. They are not deep rooters and perhaps flower more freely on soil of moderate depth than they do on sites where the soil has been specially deepened and manured. Because of their early floweringthey usually have to put up with some frost and snow they should be given a sheltered position. While the leaf and branch growth are hardy, the flowers are somewhat tender. If you want to plant Daphnes in the mixed shrubbery, give them a position in front, facing south or west, so that they are protected when in flower from cold north and eaat winds. Dwarf in habit 3 feet 6 inches is the average height of the mature shrub and very slow growing, Daphne Mezereum is well . suited for planting as a centerpiece to flower beds in quite small gardens. ,. . MOLLIS AZALEA REQUIREMENTS AZALEA MOLLIS Is a close relative of the Rhododendron, but whereas the popular forms of RhcSSodendrons are evergreen, the Azalea ia a deciduous shrub. Soil similar to that required by Rhododendrons is also needed by Azaleas. You can mix them into the. sunny faces (east, south or' west) of the shrubbery if you like, and they will do passably well there. But the best place to grow these sweet and showy Azaleas is to give them a bed to themselves, excavated to two feet depth, and filled In with peat Afterwards you can plant hardy lilies between the shrubs. The bed may have anything from full-sun to half-sun exposure, but always It will be sheltered from cold winds. We specially recommend the mollis sinensis hybrids, of which there are a number of named varieties in the yellow, orange and flame colors.

The Kellys Or the Sullivans do, "It's another kid And a pity, too!" When the Montmorencys Or the Vere de Veres Take a trip to Reno The whole world hears. When the Cohens, Th Kellva tural soils, If It Is remembered that they are fairly shallow and bulky rooters and also that they want plenty of water at all times. So your preparations should be two spade-depths digging, with leaf-mold, or rotted manure in the planting holes. Rhododendrons will do well in half sun or even with less than that So you may plant the dwarfs on the eaat or, northeast facea of the mixed shrubbery. Another good idea la to fill a bed entirely with them. The coarser forma of the species Pontlcum will grow quite well with shelter trees branching over them. Or, If you have a damp spot, you might well plant these taller Rhododendrons in it or around the edge of the bog garden or lily pool. FLOWERING CURRANTS YOU can have Flowering Currants, or Ribes Sanguineum, in color varieties of white, pink, bright rose and crimson, and all of them are hardy, free-flowering shrubs that will do well anywhere. The yellow form, Ribes Aureum, is not quite so showy a bush. It grows more strongly than the varieties of Sanguineum, however, and Is suitable for mixing in the general shrubbery. Spade-deep digging with a layer of leaf-mold placed in the hole at planting time is suitable preparation for all the Flowering Currants. They are not particular as , to exposure; they are quite con- . tent with a little direct sun, though they will not do well In dense shade under or near evergreens. FACE FORSYTHIAS SOUTH THE Golden Bell shrubs, or For-sythias are lovely flowers, and very ahowy they can be. There are several forms of them; Suapensa has large, full yellow flowers; Viridlssima has rather smaller flowers, definitely tinged with green, and the cross between the two, Intermedia, has also a little green tinge In its blooms. If you want one form only we recommend ' Intermedia as the best. All the Forsythiaa flower on the leafless branches (the leaves come later) produced in the previous summer. They are all moderate growers only as to height and thus are suitable for small and medium-sized gsrdens. The place for Forsythiaa is near the front of the shrubbery and facing southeast, south, south-West or west. They are good mixers with other shrubs. The ground for them should be prepared by deep digging and I DOUBT IF I EVER CANI I WISH I had the nickles and dimes. The quartets, the halves and the dollars - I've given away to ambitious young men, To make them most excellent scholars! I wish I had the hats and the coats. The shoes and the old umbrellas, I've packed up in bundles and sent away,- To those cannibal-Island dwellers! I wish 1 had the paper and stamps. The money I've sent with the hope Of winning a car or a thouaand for life As first prize, in a contest for soap. I wish I could start some kind of a racket.

The ruffles edging the demure collar and youthful puffed sleeve add charming feminine touches to the draped blouse. While the low-placed pleats on the skirt are very new and are designed for ease of construction and slender lines. With daisies tripping gaily over Its dark background, the model pictured is made of a soft, smooth rayon crepe which drapes beautifully and Is especially endearing to the fastidious In that It can be washed often and easily with no fear of fading, running or pulling out at the seams. A tiny cluster of daisies high at the throat Is an amusing trimming detail of this youthful style. Five Star Fashion No. 30;i0 ta -designed for slsea 12, 14, IS, 18 and 20.

The picturesque ceremony of weighing the ruler was one of the featurea of his recent Jubilee celebration In Bombay. The city was filled TEDDY WHKN we hear of Theodore Roosevelt in Brazil, we usually think of him hunting big game. As a matter of fact, Col. Roosevelt led an expedition on a hazardous trip down . an unexplored river. Vp until this time the river was referred to as "the River of Doubt," because no one knew just where it did have its course. When the trip started, there was a party of men and seven dugout canoes. Several of the canoes were lost and most of the trip was made with great hardship. But what Roosevelt planned to do, he did. In honor of the Colonel, the river appears on the maps of South America as . "Rio Teodoro." Cut out fat meats you don't need them eat sensibly of lamb, lean beef, fish and fowl.
