So do slup- pccl-up drains. BuL with water coming out of a pipe, speed is essential. Don't panic, but move quickly, 'flic first thing lo do is turn off Hie water. Now that may seem, clcmen- l ary but people have IMJCII known to wrap rags, tape and the liku around a pip? with the water spurting away. No repair, temporary or per- manent, is possible under such a condition. Most water lines have sep- arate shut-off valves. If this one doesn't, turn off the jnain water valve. You will find it where the water line raters the house, pncrally at the front. Seme emergency repairs arc temporary. A wad of I flit1 wing gum and a few layers i of for example. One Hint will last indefinitely is a E-JIC- j t-iai pipe clamp Most hard- w a re and plumbing supply houses carry clamps made just, I for this Two metal halves, lined with rubber, fit around Uie pipe. Nuts and bolts draw Hie clamp tight aflor you I have it in place. Think what else you might use. An old piece of garden liose can be used. Never throw away an old garden hose. Save a pieces any way. For a leaking pipe, slit the hose and place it around the pipe. Hold it, in place with hose clamps. If you don't, hnve a hose clamp, use wire, twisting tightly with a of pliers once you have it around Lhs patch. 1 A piece of rubber from an old inner lube can substitute 1 for the hose. Use plenty of electrical Sometimes lay- a point, and then pound it int- of t a p o, wrapped in the hole. Wrap l.rpu aixuiii opposite dim-lions, will do the those trick all Another temporary repair can be made by pulling a plug in the hole in the pipe A wood screw (or any si'lf-lapping screw) can U> inserted in the hole and lightened until it grips A little pipe compound or even glue around the screw tin-ends first will make it that Nevrr turn on the water un- til after you have your pale: securely in place.

It grows C to 9 inches in hcighl. making an ideal plant for pols, or as an edging for vegeLabt or along a path. The finely cut, dark j green, grass-like tubular fo-! liagc is followed by pale mauvo flowers, should be re- moved as soon as they appear. This herb will grow in sun or semi-shade and requires a fair amount of moisture. Sow the seed in early spring and if more thaji ens p'.ar.t is required i thin to sland 10 inches apart. i New" planls may be established by separating the off-shoots from original clump and re- planting. Eventually, the clumps attain a large size and i so should be separated about I every four years by culting with a sharp knife, with each piece containing a portion of Lhe roots Cut the tops as close lo the ground as needed they will soon grow again.
