Careful Use A Help Garden Hoses Can Be Fixed NAME ADDRESS (Lett.) Found Yarn's Effects John Mercer, an English cElico-printer and chemist, dis- covered the effects of mercer- ized cotton yarn in 1844 and was granted an English patent in 1850. By MR. FIX Garden hoses would last a lot longer if people would let them. But folks persist on dragging them over rough con- crete, driving over them, leaving the water turned on at the faucet while turning off the nozzle, crimping them to stop the water momentarily, crimp- ing them accidentally because someone didn't make certain it was unwound properly, and doing all sorts of tilings that torture a hose designed for no- thing more than carrying wa- ter. Even Just leaving the hose alone could destroy it. If you leave a hose out in the hot sun with water in it, the water can start to boil and a garden hose wasn't intended for boiling water. Fortunately a hose is not dif- ficult to repair so it isn't nec- essary to throw a damaged hose away and start with a new one. Cut out the damaged section and either measure the opening or take the piece with you to the hardware store. Hoses come in different diameters and you will have to know the right size to get the proper mending equipment. You can get a conventional coupling with male and female ends and in effect make two small hoses out of one big one. Unless there is some special reason for doing that, get a solid mender that restores the hose to one piece. This is cheaper. Rubber and plastic hoses take different style menders and couplings although you may find a few described as suitable for both. The mender for the rubber hose is usually a short tube or nipple with claw-like metal flange around the middle. The tube is inserted in both ends of the hose and the metal prongs pounded down. Some menders are nothing more Uian the brass tube held in placo with separate hose clamps. For a plastic hose the mend- er consists of the metal tube and threaded screw clamps that go over1 the hose and then tightened, the threads biting in- to the hose and holding it tight against the tube. New couplings for rubber hoses consist of the coupling parts mounted on tubes insert- ed into the hose ends. The prongs are then pounded down or a clamp is used. The coupling parts for a plas- tic hose are a little more com- plicated. The coupling tube is slipped over the hose and not into it. With the sleeve over the hose a bushing is placed inside the hose at the end. The bushing is threaded and, when turned with a special key, seats itself inside the hose and ex- erts pressure on the wall of the hose against the metal sleeve. Couplings often need re- pi a c i n g because they get smashed by someone driving over them, or the threads get damaged by being dragged over rough surfaces. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)

CANADIAN WHISKY Guidelines For Do-It-Yourselfer Use Right 4Recipe5 For Concrete If you're planning a new con- crete patio, driveway, sidewalk or other home improvement, it's a good idea to work with your ready mixed concrete producer to be sure you get the kind of concrete you need for your job. Concrete, like any other pro- duct made by is only as good as the ingredients and their proportions that go into it. Concrete that may be adequate for a foundation might not work too well for more rug- ged service. Here are some guidelines sug- gested by the Portland Cement Association to help you decide the concrete mix that's right for your job: -PAVED AREAS For most exposed paved areas, ask for a concrete mix containing 6 sacks of cement per cubic yard and no more than 6 gallons of water per sack of cement. And for extremely mild exposure, you can cut the cement content to 5 bags and increase the water to a maxi- mum of 7 gallons per sack of cement. For easy placement, order a concrete with a medium or "mushy" consistency (about 3- inch Above all, don't add water to make the concrete "flow" into place. This will weaken it considerably. For almost every home use, it's important to order air-en- trained concrete. By using air-entraining ce- ment or an air-entraining ad- mixture, the ready mix produc- er can supply concrete that con- tains billions of tiny air bub- bles. The bubbles prevent dam- age from freezing and thawing by providing room for the water to expand when it freezes. Most air-entrained concrete contains 4 to 7 per cent air. Your ready mix supplier can recommend the right air content for your particular mix. Ready mix is sold by cubic yard. Find the amount you need by computing the volume in cubic feet (length X width X depth in feet) and divide by 27 (cubic feet per cub Al- low about 10 per cent for waste and overrun. YOUR GARDEN By isabelle R. Young, F.R.H.S. PEONIES By ISABELLE R. YOUNG FRHS "OEONIES are one of the hardiest herbacious peren- nials blooming year after year from late spring to early sum- mer. They come in double somi-double and single varie- ties in a wide range of colors. Once established, they .require very little attention, and if planted properly in the first place can remain undisturbed for 25 years or more. Since they become such a permanent plant in the garden, purchase only the best. Even when through blooming the foliage of the peony is qm'tc attractive, taking on a broniy tone in the fall. Planting is usually can-led out in September, but may also be done early in the spring when they get lot of sunshine and air, and are not crowded with other perennials in the border. As they eventually grow to quite a size they should Stiff Drinks Help Prevent Mental Retardation MIAMI, Fla. (Reuters) A couple of stiff drinks downed daily by a woman in her last few weeks of pregnancy can prevent one cause of mental retardation in the infant, a medical researcher has report- ed. Dr. Richard Waltman, asso- ciate professor at the Brooklyn Cumberland Medical Centre in Brooklyn, N.Y., reported at a University of Miami medical conference that hyperbilirubi- nemia, an excess amount of a liver product which produces jaundice and nerve system damage, can be prevented by alcohol in moderate amounts. But he said that drinking any alcohol at all before the last few weeks of pregnancy can be risky and the unborn baby can easily become intoxicated. To prevent the liver condi- tion, Dr. Waltman cd the "pleasant oral consump- tion" of reasonable amounts of aicohol at the proper time. "What's reasonable? A cou- ple of martinis a he said.

Set the plants in the hole so there is no more than 2 inches of soil above the crown of the plant. Allow for settling of the plant or you may discover later on it is 3 inches instead of the required 2 inches below soil surface. You can extend the blooming period by selecting early, medium and late varie- ties. If dividing, dig up plants, remove soil and then wash with hose. With a sharp knife cut the roots into three to five eye divisions and replant as above. Any good garden soil pro- vided it is well-drained is ideal. If your earth is heavy it may be lightened with the addition of sand and a small amount of peat moss. People obtain good plants and then wonder why they fail to bloom. One of the biggest troubles is setting them too deep. Dig a hole 18 to 20 in- ches deep and from 24 to 30 in- ches in diameter. Prepare the hole by mixing in sand and gravel or peal moss to provide the drainage they require. A little bonemeal and a complete fertilizer or well-rotted manure is worked well into the bottont of the hole, making sure it does not come in direct contact with the roots of the plant. Peonies are their showiest and most impressive when dis- played as specimen plants, or in large beds in a wide border up against a fence they show off to good advantage. Normally, pcsiuca require no winter protection, but like all new perennials they should be mulched (lie first winter. A light covering of peat moss is usually sufficient for this pur- pose. After growth commences in the spring, a feeding of 11- 48-0 at the rate of 3 tbsps. per plant or 1 tbsp. of Vigro may be used. Driving around the city this year I sav: some beautiful bushes of peonies but so many of the flowers were lying down on the ground. They would have looked twice as nice had they been tied up. You can pur- chase special wire hoops to support the plants but good strong stakes and twine will serve the- purpose. Do not in! Hie plants suffer i from lack of water, tapeeially when they are growing and blooming vigorously. Cut off all faded flowers and when us- ing for indoor decoration, al- low as much foliage as possible to remain on the plant to store up food for next year's growth. If cut when about one-half open the flowers will last much long- er. REMEMBER if your peo- nies fail to bloom it could be because of 1. Planting too deep. 2. Too much shade, poor drain- age and lack of moisture. 3. Botrytis Blight which causes the stems and buds to turn brown. Cut these off and spray in early spring as soon as the new shoots appear, using Zineb, Captan or Maneb, according to directions, repeating in ten days. When the plants die back in the fall, cut back the stalks and dispose of them to help prevent botrytis blight. Do not be disappointed if your peony does not bloom the first year as it takes at least two years before they become establish- ed. Mrs. K. I started some Ice- land Poppies in the house this spring but soon after putting outside, they all died off. What did I do wrong? Ans. Iceland Poppies do not like to be transplanted. Sow them in the garden where they are to grow. Although they are a short-lived perennial, they self- sow and once established in a bed you will always have them.
