Pine lawn grasses all to stop growth in midsummer and their energy revives as fall ap- proaches. This is believed to. be governed by the length of the day- light. Prom late August to the first of October, the earlier the better, is :the most favorable time for the germination of lawn grass seed and the establishment of seedling plants. The growth urge is at its maximum, the weather is cooler, with more plentiful moisture, and with shortening days there is an apparent effort on the part of the plants to achieve maximum strength in preparation for the The earlier seed is sown, the longer seedling plants have to grow in this favorable period be- fore the ground freezes. After Oc- 1 there is considerable haz- ard due to the possibility that freezing will come when the seed- ling plants are too young to stand it. Seeding should never be de- layed so long unless it Is impos- sible to sow earlier. Seed sown on established lawns repair purposes at this season .requires more careful treatment in the early spring. There must be assurance that the seed Is covered with earth, since other- wise it is likely to wash off the bare spots. Loosen the soil in> the bare places, sprinkle on the seed and rake it in, or If seed is broad- cast generally over the lawn it should be accompanied'by a light top dressing. This should be pre- pared of sifted soil, which may be mixed with a complete plant food. should not exceed a quarter of an inch in depth when spread over the lawn and should be care- fully and washed .off. the aves. Throughout the cold-wealher states of the United States, Ken- tucky blue grass Is considered very satisfactory. It is sown us- ually in a mixture which includes considerable red top. and some white clover and bent. Red top Is a fine lawn grass which germ- ates more quickly than blue grass and becomes easily, but it is not so permanent. It Is used as a nurse crop to the blue grass, which, while slower in germ- Diva Relearning Her Do-Re-Mi's Cheerful after an operation for removal of a goiter which for 15 years half-blocked her throat, Mme.

White clover thick- ens, the turf and enriches the soil. It is a good plan for gardeners to have a ready supply of good grass seed for the lat summer and fall reseeding; and where new lawns are to be made, a supply of plant food will also be needed.

SUCCULENT FEED Garden beets, carrots and man- gles can be used as a succulent feed to supplement winter dairy rations and can be quite easily stored, points out the state col- large dairy department. Chopped garddn beets and carrots can be fed at the rate of about 40 pounds a day. Mangles, containing a low- er percentage of dry matter, may be fed at ttte rate of 45 to 50 pounds a day. And dry root crop should: be supplemented with a legume hay. High producing cows also should receive grain.

Eight thousand Granges In the United States will hold meetings on that night-September 30. A network of cars will be travel- ing toward Grange halls in all parts of the United States at one time. If it were possible to look down upon, all of the communities represented by Granges, what a picture it would make! Cars filled with families would be seen leav- ing their homes headed for Grange halls. Not only Grange members, but. their neighbors also are includ- ed to this picture. On this night set every Granger and his neighbor are urged to 'hear and take part in a well-rounded Grange program. In this state 470 such meetings will be held. In the well rounded program of the Grange, its legis- lative, cooperative, ritualistic, edu- cational, home, community, wel- juvenile and other features will be set forth. Those outside of Grange will get an idea of Grange value and ser- vice today. Medals are to be awarded by the National Orange for the best five Booster niijht programs in the na- tion, and two prizes in each state, one for Granges with a member- ship of under 200 members and one for over 200. A score card and detailed information will be sent each Grange lecturer early in Sep- tember by the National Grange. Each Grange hall will look its best. There will be decorating, pub- licity, membership attendance, greeting and refreshment commit- tees especially for this event. Ar- rangements for a special officers' drill, flag salute and other such features will be effective. Booster Night is the one special night when a neighboring Grange is not Invited, for each Grange is host to is own neighborhood population. The home community is the guest of honor. Old members will be invited to be resinstated and new ones so- licited. Each lecturer and committee will check over his feature program to make it the best of the year. Spe- :ial music by the best talent, short plays, pageants, tableaux, speaking, the very best procurable will be had for this big night.

A possible Increase of Income for farmers of Western WashlnUm lies in the practicability of ship- ping flowers by air express to destinations ns far ns the middle west, according to E. B. Slookey bulb grower living near Olympla. Stookey believes thai by this practice Washington's flower mar- ket can be greutly extended. Stookey also made another dis- covery, that of obtaining flowers in 30 days. This Is accomplished by placing Uie bulbs in a bowl with rocks and water, tlie same as Chinese lilies are handled. "At Christmas time we had flowers which were produced in 30 said Stookey. "The bulbs had been cured about the last of September, after which they were placed In cold storage in a 'sharp' or cool room Jus! above freezing. Last year bulbs held in this manner until the last of January produced blos- soms in 20 days. "For long distance shipping of flowers, we pick In the tight bud and generally ship by express. It is surprising how they come out and how they last after reaching their destination. "Western Washington soils and climatic conditions are second to none for the production 'A hardy narcissus and daffodil Through the efficient work of inspectors of our state depart- ment of Agriculture we have re- duced insect and disease pests to a minimum.'

Mossyrock, Morton and the new- ly organized Packwood garden circles will join with lUahee cir- cle of Randle in making it a success. The dahlia will be the featured flower, but others, in- clnuding gladioli, will also be en- tered for competition. HARVEST CUCUMBERS The Snohomish County Fruit Growers' association is harvest- ing 30 acres of cucumbers. A nationally known company is packing the crop. Given suffi- cient water no part of the world excels western Washington for this crop. Starting as an experiment this year in 10 counties, results of hatching pheasant eggs under do- mestic hens by boys' 4-H clubs are encouraging, Henry M. Walker, state agent for 4-H club work for the state extension; service, says. Walker believes that when all reports axe in it will be determ- ined that the experiment was suc- cessful enough to warrant contin- uing it next year. This is the first year that an attempt has been made In this state in the opem. field method of rearing game birds as a part ot the 4-H club program. Hggs were received from Bay James, state game department director, and sent out to 84 members of game bird clubs in Franklin, Yakima, Walla Walla, Columbia, Whitman, Spo- kane, Kittitas, Lewis, Cowlitz and Clark counties. The young birds were to be kept by the club mem- bers for 12 weeks and then, turn- ed back to the game, department for distribution. It has not yet been learned whether they will be released in the counties in which they were hatched, or whether they will be turned loose before or after the 1935 hunting season. The game department has agreed to pay club members 75 cents a bird for all they accept. The record of the Clark coun- ty club is interesting. There are seven boys in the club and they received a total of 350 eggs. Ac- cording to latest reports, from this number of eggs there are 172 liv- ing birds. Most of the loss which was sustained occurred before the eggs were hatched. Only ten birds were last after hatching. Some of the eggs were broken by the hen, and in some cases the hen left the eggs before they were hatched.
