Design T45-1634 Sq. Ft. For lovers of the traditional, the home il- lustrated shows the New England "salt box" in the grand manner but modern as tomorrow in conveniences for family living and enter- taining. The family room fireplace is popular today but of course any builder could locate it in the living room or even build fireplaces in both rooms. The centre hall plan has never been bettered for ef- ficient traffic circulation. The main floor laundry will be appreciated by the homemaker and the den is effectively isolated from the busier areas of the home. A famous make refrigerator is advertising as one of the features of its top model that it is equipped with wheels so the housewife can move it easily when she cleans. It's an ancient device, the wheel, but it isn't used nearly enough. If it were, there would be fewer sore muscles and bad backs. Even though you are com- fortably settled in a house or apartment it isn't likely that your furniture is. Furniture gets moved short distances for cleaning and all over the place simply because someone wants to re-arrange the room. Heavy pieces of furniture are simple to move if equipped with casters. Some items, of course, you wouldn't consider having casters on. Sofa for example. For those heavy items that don't have permanent casters, get yourself some temporary wheels. They are called three- wheel caster dollies and they are not cheap. But they are worth every penny if you can avoid a pulled mucle or a wrenched back. A caster dolly is a triangular shaped metal plate with a dip in the middle and a wheel on each corner. The leg of the object you are moving fits Into that dip. If it has no leg, the entire comer can rest flat on the top surface KNBS1QIK CHARGEX Red is for Valentines By ISABELLE R. YOUNG F.R.H.S. Happy Valentine's Day. I am going to write on something red for the occa- sion and the flower I have chosen Is the salvia. This is quite a lovely bedding out plant, but there are many peo- ple who are not familiar with it. There are quite a number of varieties annual, perennial or biennial, in various colors, but all are grown in this area as annuals. Red salvias are so eye catching, producing a blaze of color either in the garden or for pot work, and grow approximately six to 24 inches high. The flowers are dense tubes of vivid red or orange red with equally red bracts. These plants show up to best advantage if planted in a bed of their own or combined with white petunias or alyssum, or yellow marigolds or snaps. The foliage itself is most attractive and interesting. Some excellent varieties in- clude Jet inches, an early blooming strain, un- iform and vigorous. The flower spikes are intense dark red, offset by medium green foliage. Scarlet Pygmy grows six inches and is one of the earliest varieties, producing many spikes of brilliant scarlet. One of the most pop- ular and very early is St. John's Fire, 12 Inches, starting to bloom when quite small with scarlet flowers nearly hiding the foliage. For a taller specimen Hot Jazz at 14 inches stands up well in summer heat. The dark green leaves and the deep scarlet of the flowers make it an out- standing salvia. For an even taller plant and extra long flower stems, grow Titania, 16 inches, with red flowers of a lovely rich color. Early Bird is 12 inches and has dark green, leaves and the color is blood red. It is base brandling, husky and blooms all summer. Another ex- cellent one is Blaze of Fire, 14 inches, with vivid scarlet flowers, making an out- standing display in the gar- den. A new introduction is Red Hussar, 13 inches, the first dark leaved early red strain. It stands up well under hot spells or rainy weather. To complete our Valentine scheme, we should include a white variety. Farinacea White Bedder is a per- ennial and grows 2Vz feet high. This is a very lovely one and each year I try to include it in various beds in the garden, usually as an accent plant to offset darker or brighter colors or heavier looking plants. This is made possible because of its light, airy appearance. The flower spikes are much different than regular salvias, being slender and delicate with smaller blossoms. The foliage has a silvery look, which is most appealing. There is also a blue variety, Farinacea Blue Bedder, 2Vi feet in height, almost identical to the white one, except for the color. Perennial varieties should be sown around the middle of February and the others about March 1st. The seed requires light to germinate so after planting, do not cover. Ger- mination may be quite slow in some cases. The soil temperature should be around 70 degrees. Be careful when transplanting as the roots can be easily damaged. Do not put outdoors until all danger of frost is over as these are very tender plants, Salvias do best in full sun or very light shade in a well drained soil. The perennial varieties may be dried for winter bouquets. HINT: If you are growing any palms in your home or of- fice, they require a cool temperature at night, a fair amount of light but not the hot, direct sun. Feed once a month with a high nitrogen fertilizer such as 18-12-6. of the dolly. They are built low and you can slip one under the corner of a heavy object without too much difficulty. Get yourself ,a set of lour. A heavy chest, a stove or a refrigerator without wheels can be moved from one spot to another .with them. Permanent casters are available in a wider variety than you might imagine. They are made of wood, metal, rubber and plastic. They are attractive, made to be seen as well as used. One type isn't a wheel at all. This is a ball caster, the type in which a metal ball revolves in a socket. There's no ques- tion of a fixed direction with these they move smoothly in any direction. Sometimes mobility is something you want only now and then. The rest of the time you want the object to remain rigid. Power tools are an ex- ample. For this there are locking casters so that you can move the tool where you want it, then lock the wheels so that the tool remains rigid. When you buy casters, figure first how they will be mounted. For furniture with slender legs, use a stem caster. The caster comes with a metal socket. Drill a hole large enough for the socket, deep enough for the stem. The socket at the wide end has a turned up lip with teeth that bite into the base of the leg and hold it in place. Plate casters are casters, mounted on a metal plate for use on a flat base. There are holes in the plate for screws. Carpentry Corner Easy-to-build kayak The 17 foot kayak illustrated is easy to build, light, yet ex- tremely sturdy.

Watch guinea pig's food There is no secret in the fact that eating is a guinea pig's main interest in life. But how and what you1 feed your pet can make a big difference to his health. All leafy foods are welcom- ed by guinea pigs grasses, dandelions, lettuce and so on. Yet, strangely, cabbage is not too popular with them. Clean ordinary grass forms the staple part of his regular diet. As well, he'll really enjoy nice crunchy carrots and beets, or a bunch of celery leaves. His nibbling habits can well be satisfied with a supply of fresh hay, greens and rock salt. He may not make any great show of being a big drinker, but always make sure he has lots of clean water. Meat, insects, tomatoes or oinions just don't appeal to a guinea pig, and he isn't likely to enjoy potatoes either. His simple tastes are easy and inexpensive to satisfy, but some care is needed in the preparation of food for him. Plant sprays and insec- ticides can be very harmful to your pet, so don't take any chances with his food. Wash all fresh vegetables before feeding them to him. The same hazard can be on hay you pick yourself. Best be safe and purchase small bales of hay from a pet or feed store. Some pet owners prefer to use hay as both food and bed- ding. They find that by the time the hay is ready for changing, the guinea pig has thoroughly picked the stems clean of all edible seeds and leaves, so nothing's been wasted.
