THIS IS THE TIME TO

audacious air as It pops up through tho
snow to greet the spring, now is the time
to plant them all.

The earth should bo spaded for eight
or ton Inches; It should be enriched
with a fertiliser of soma kind at that
.depth, and if a llttlo sand Is placed be
neath the bulb Itself, so much the bet
ter. This will prevent the bulbs from
rotting. If heavy rains should follow too
soon on tho planting.
Six Inches deep and six inches apart Is
the rulo for planting hyacinths.
Tulips can bo planted four Inches deep
and four Inches apart. They both need
sunshine, but the snowdrop nnd tho cro
cus can bo scattered over the ground or
along hedges, or even between evergreens,
and yet como up smiling.
There aro many varieties of bulbs, and
some of the Dutch kinds aro especially
expensive. But ciocus and narcissus
bulbs can bo bought for 10 and 13 cents a
dozen. Single tulips and tho Roman
hyacinth aro to be had for V cents a
dozen. The price of tho double tulip and
the double hyacinth depends on tho na
tionality of the bulb nnd tho fame ot it3

In these days when cold storage, 'he
employment of preservatives lu foods,
and tho adulteration of food products are
being subjected to the most severe crlll

liiitlsh Medical Ofllcers of Health on the

Dr. Hauna, who opened the discussion.
eferred to the fact thut the United States
was not only no longer sending cattle to ,
ilreat Hrltaln, but was taking for Its
1 own supply cattle from countries widen
had hitherto exported ulmost exclusively
to (irmt Britain. He went on to point
out that the methods of refrigeration of
foodstuffs depended chiefly on the sclen-tni.-
fait that expanding air or vapor

i.iilj.nte acid ur ammonia. In assuming
the gaseous form abstracted heat fiurn

autun;inea damaged the cellular and
fibrous structure of the meat unless spe-
uai tare was taken In defrosting. Hanna
gave It as his opinion that meat when
thawed would keep with proper care as
well as freshly killed meat after being
taken from the refrigerator, even In
high temperature, a view not In accoid
ance with popular opinion.
Of course, refrigeration or ohllllng of
foodstuffs Is necessary when these have
to be conveyed for long distances, as for
example, from North or South America
to Kurope, but great care must be exer
cised both in the process itself and the
defrosting. That, however, animal food
thus treated does not undergo a certain
amount of deterioration Is a view op

certainly the suggestion that refrigera

one not borne out by experience.
AS YOU sit down to the nice hrcak--
fast of fruit and cereal, and may
be a poached egg on toast, did
il ever occur to you to wonder what
the birds are eating for breakfast at
this very minute? Of course, you
know they cat worms and grubs and
insects, but perhaps they like cereals,
too. Xotice sonic time when you arc
walking where birds are and sec if
you can find some that cat grains and
seed as well as worms.
The pretty little scarlet cardinal
that makes such a gay streak as he
flies across the garden likes seeds
very much better than gnib- and
worms, and if you throw out wheat,
lie will surely visit your garden. In
the seed time of the year, when every
plant in the garden has its own Utile
pods of seed, you need not throw out
any bait, as he is wise enough to come
there and help himself of the feast
that Nature has spread for him.
All summer long a certain rardinal
had kefpt his eyes on a very beautiful
garden. Some day he was sure he
would get sonic extra fine food from
that garden. Above all, he had his
eye ou the big tall sunflower way back
at the end uf the yard, liarly in sum
mer, this sunflower was a lovely big
blossom, so big and cheerful and sun
ny did he look that he made the
whole garden seem like one big smile.
But now the sunflower's, big goldy
petals were all dried up and blown
away, and the soft velvety centre was
dry and hard with big fat seeds.
You would think the flower was
prettiest when in blossom but the
cardinal wouldn't agree with you. He
didn't care a bit about a blossom
but a dead blossom full of seeds
that's different that's about the eiy
best thing to cat he know.- ot.
"Well, well," said the puzzled car
dinal, to himself and he began plan-
flower was young was now old and
frail and easily bent. '
The bird slid off into the air.
Even the weight of the dainty car
dinal bent the face of the old flower
so far front that the bird slid off into
ml, to h
uing what to do.
At last he decided to get them on
the fly, so he made a quick dash,
passed the flower, pecking out a seed
as he went.
Without stopping to even taste it,
he dropped the seed and got another,
and then another, till several seeds
lay on the ground by the flower.
Then he daintily alighted on the
ground and ate his fine breakfast in a
leisurely and gentlemanly fashion.

For days he watched the seeds dry
up vjth a soft peel; he would test
them, but no they is ere m,t juite
right, and with a whisk anil a song
he flew away.
But finally a morning came when
the seeds were just right and he de
cided to stay for bieakfnst.
Round and round the flower he cir

that tho artistry of the designer Is shoun.
There Is always a charm about a mater
ial that conceals and roveals, and a,
white skin never looks whiter than
through filmy black.
These long sleeves aro graceful affair?,
and aro flndlng favor as a fashion for
afternoon frocks In place of the elboir
sleevo worn so porslstontly both winter
and summer and spring and autumn for
Not but that the elbow sleeve will bars
Us devotees, for It means a freedom and
comfort that the full length sleeve and
tho revived knuckle, Sarah Bernhardt
sleevo can never give.
The new glrdlo that comes up above th
bust and well below tho waist Is made,
In the Instanco of the evening frock
shown, of jetted net, slightly draped.
The jotted net Is neither too stiff nor
too heavy to show tho outlines ot lh
figure, for the uncorsoted figure is et
ceedlugly popular still, and nothing fitllt
that would confine it too closely could
hope to have present-day approval.
Tho satin of the skirt is repeated at ths
top of the girdle, very much after tl.e
fashion of a binding of wide ribbon. Tlio
girdle Is further ornamented with a
bunch of gardnlas nt tho waistline and
at the left side.
The satin skirt 1h veiled in net, funic
fashion, and Is banded with jet spanslis.
The effect of the dress is nltogttlipr
charming, and It has a value for the
womankind lu tho fact that It could be
so easily copied.
Tt could be reproduced just as It stand,
black satin, veiled lu net, Jet-spatiuled
basque girdle nnd Jet trimmings, or II
could servo ns a model for other ma
terials. Tho distinctive fashion notes are, ot
course, tho long sleeves and the basquj
girdle. The.'e should be preserved, or
the gown would loso its modish cffict
But the jet might be icplaced by s
number or things il' the stv lc or fis
frock wax developed In another color or
Gold nnd silver tissue would .'one it?
well for this purpose. They are lilelily
decorative nnd would make the basijui
glrdlo most effectlvo.
And apropos of these tissues, they an
seen In colors this season nnd in the soft
shades that strike a responslie chord
In all beauty-loving breasts.
