Child should know Poison plants by Henry Pree written for Aba service City bred folks moving to the country in order to provide their children with better recreation facilities Are often disturbed by the presence of plants which they believe might be poisonous.

Plants classified As poisonous May be divided into two those like Poison Ivy which cause irritation of the skin and those poisonous like toadstools when eaten by mistake for an edible species or by experimenting children. There is no Sharp line of distinction Between toadstools and mushrooms. In the botanists Lan Ipaige the former is poisonous and the latter is edible. Neither is there any popular test by which the poisonous Toad Stool can be distinguished from the edible mushroom. The Only Rule to follow cat any mushrooms unless you Are absolutely sure that it is not poisonous. If you must eat Mush rooms buy them from the store. For one who is not familiar with identifying mushrooms a description of Fly Amanita and death cup tiie two poisonous toadstools is no their description is omitted. The following plants several of them Gro n commonly May or May not cause trouble but should be looked upon with enjoy their not eat them Snow on the Mountain Euphorbia Marg Inata its Milky juice irritating the skin.

Transplant the entire division after removing any Rhi Zomes that Are decayed or of poor Quality. It is not necessary to Cut Back the leaves if but few roots have been destroyed. Neighbor has told me that the Lawn should1 be mowed closely so that one need not mow it so often. However i have noticed that his Lawn looks Brown a Good Deal of the time even though he Waters it. Does he Cut the grass too Short that is probably the reason Why it looks Brown a Good Deal of the time do not Cut the grass Shorter than about two inches and it will look hotter and grow better. After All the Plant must have some Leaf surface in order to grow As the roots have very Little Reserve food at this time of the year. Here again food for growth is made in the Green leaves.

Thus the american housewife will find herself deluged with recommendations to serve up beef Stew boiled dinners and various other dishes that require the appetizing combination of beef and vegetables. The meat Institute said the Campaign to boost beef sales was Dic ated by predictions that cattle Slaughter will reach an All time Ligh a the fall because of a record High number of cattle on farms at Jie beginning of this year and be Ause severe drought conditions Lave made it unprofitable for farm ers and ranchers to maintain their cattle on pasture.
