Dig it up deeply—at least the full depth of the garden spade. If it is clay, handle it as mentioned above. If it is too sandy, bring in some clay and add organic matter too. For this latter you can use several kinds of materials. Peat is ‘very good; decayed barnyard manure is best of all. After these are applied it is a good plan to add a liberal amount of commercial fertilizer. Ideally, it would be best to spade the area carefully again so that all these substances are thorough- ly mixed. This turning and mix- ing is quite important.

All stations Will be manned by regular and temporary rangers during the deer season from Oct- ober 5 to 26 inclusive, and when the elk hunting season is on be- tween November 2 and 11 inclu- sive. Rangers who will have been on deer hunting duty will be switched over to elk duty, Augus- tine said. The ranger emphasized that it is contrary to park rules to trans- port guns or game across park land and he also pointed out that no camp can be established inside park boundaries by hunters who will be seeking game outside the park.

Rake down the lawn area rather roughly and then keep the soil moist by sprinkling just as though you had planted grass seed! Most of the weed seeds will germinate in a short time and they can be taken out {before the lawn is actually seed- ied. I recently heard of one man who did this two or three times, before sowing the. lawn seed. Then, of course, you need only break up. Ithc surface soil with a rake. or‘ hoe, give it a final levelling, sow your grass, rake it in lightly and. carefully, keep the soil surface: I evenly moist and watch the grassl Isprout with a minimum of com-i petition from weeds. ProvidedI you have bought good seed. The lapse of several weeks be- fore seeding with grass also gives‘ you a good chance to level out any I uneveness that has been caused by irregular settling of the spadedI areas.

RAINS MAY DAMAGE SEED GRAIN Farmers should be careful about using seed from grain which has stood in the field an excessive Ilcngth of time before harvesting, Icautions Leonard Hegnauer, ex- ‘tension agronomist at the State College of Washington. Hegnauer points out that wheat which has stood in the raiii for an excessive length of time may be damaged for seed purposes through pre- germination and also by swelling of the kernel which reduces the number of grains per bushel.

There are many and varied dif- ficult branches in which they must train themselves to be pro- ficient; one of these, for example, , is to be able to climb an 18—foot rope in 10 seconds. Others are being able to know and to be able to send various kinds of commu— nications rapidly and without mis- take.
