May Have Lettuce
for Every Season
Popular Vegetable Should
Be Started Indoors to
Get Good Plants.
Lettuce has come to be a staple veg-
etgble on the table. It appears in
many families almost as often as pota-
toes and fills a dietary need quite as
important. It supplies in cheap and
most palatable form the vitamines A,
B and C, which have been discovered
to play so large a part in health main-
Next to Swiss chard, lettuce is the
most profitable vegetable for the home
gardener. It will be found even more
useful than chard, for it will be wel-
cemed on the table every day, which
can hardly be said of chard. Every
well-planned home garden should pro-
vide for a succession of lettuce crops
which will provide the finest quality
for the longest season, and this takes

which comparatively few will bother

den year some variety of lettuce is
There are four types of lettuce gen-
erally grown in this country—Ileaf, but-
ter-head, crisp-head and cos. All let-
tuces tend to make heads. In some
sections it takes coaxing to make any
of them head. It requires to be grown
fast, without check, io jaoduce the
tender, sweet leaves that we enjoy.
The soil, then, must be light, quickly
warmed, as rich as possible, especially
in nitrogen, and there should be a
plentiful supply of water. The richest
spot in your garden should be chosen
for lettuce and then it should be ma-
nured, if possible, and additional feed-
ing with nitrate of soda is advisable.
The first variety to sow is head let-

indoors. The plants may be set out-

such an early start, head lettuce of
these varieties should be ready in 70
days from date of sowing.
When the head lettuce is set out
sow seed of a leaf variety. This may
be sown thickly and thinned out to

plants may then be harvested halt

has been reached. All lettuce varie-

row to reach full growth, and some

Dandelions, Regarded as
Nuisance, Fine Greens
Yellow heads and green leaves of
dandelions are among the first things
to bob up on lawns in spring. They
are so early that they usually come
along in the footsteps of the robin,
spreading over the entire greensward
so rapidly that grass is frequently

early vegetables—“greens” and salads.
Experts’ tests have verified the opinion
of the practical cook. Tender dande-
Hons can be made use of in various

One way to handle dandelions, ac-
cording to Miss Katherine Howells of
the home economics division, Iowa
Stata college, is to cut off the roots,
separate and thoroughly wash the
leaves, dry them in a cloth, and “they
should be marinated a few minutes be-
fore serving in French dressing sea-
soned with a few drops of onion juice.”

SCHEME TO PREVENT
Harrisburg.—Landslides, such as
caused serious blockades on the high-
ways of the State during the past
winter will be a thing of the past,
when the State Highway Department
completes a plan now being inaugu-
rated. The scheme is to prevent the
sliding of embankments along the
highways, by planting grass, willows
or running vines to hold back the
This plan will also eliminate huge
yellow scars and cliff-like embank-
ments which will be created by the
program of highway reconstruction
which will be carried out during the
summer. Rain and the natural de-
terioration of the soil will make these
embankments menaces to the roads.
As a consequence, William H. Con-
well, engineering executive of the de-
partment plans to have seeds of both

retained this year by the quick grow-
