Watch slippery floors and frayed cords Make your homes accident proof By MR. FtX By now it comes as no sur- prise to be told the average home is a very hazardous place, that you are likelier to have an accident at home than you are away from home. But in spite of this common knowledge we are likely lo pay more attention to hazar- dous road conditions and the safe working of our autos than we are about the dangerous conditions .right around the house. The conditions to be correct- ed ere generally small and quite easy to take care of. Many of them require little more than applied common sense. Since falling Is the most com- mon cause of Injury at home, do something to prevent falls. Slippery surfaces underfoot, things that make you trip and paths not kept clear are all easily changed. Throw rugs have a way of flying out from under you when the floor is slippery. New rugs have rubber Backing on them but that's only when they are new. Before the backing wears away, either treat the backs to prevent slipping or put the nigs on skid-proof pads.

BEGONIAS FROM SEED fUBUBROUS begonias shoul be grown by everyone Their beautiful m a j e s t i blooms, coming in a wide rang of colon, are a sight to behold Most people grow them from tubers, but for those who hav never propagated them from seed, it is a fascinating an challenging experience, and can be less expensive by this meth od. If you purchase good qua" ity seed you will be assured o excellent results. Seed should be sown early in the New Year if you are te have blooms from the early part of the summer. The be- gonia seed is very, very fine (two million seeds to the almost like dust, so i you have a cold, and are in clined to sneeze a lot, be care- ful! Plant in a compost of 2 parts loam, 1 part peat moss and 1 part sand, all put througl a fine sieve. I have used this combination for years with good success, but there are other mixtures one can use such as equal parts of loam, pea moss, sand and vermiculite Whatever gives you the best result, stick by it. Fill flat or container with compost so thai when it is gently tamped down ft will be about one half inch from the top of the flat. Sow seed in furrows rather than broadcasting over surface ol soil as this helps to prevenl "damp-off" (a sudden wilting and dying of young should it occur, from spreading too rapidly. I always like to water the flat first before sow- ing fine seeds to prevent them from being washed out of place. Mixing begonia seed with silver sand will fascilitate easier planting. Then, carefully press them into the soil. Cover with glass to prevent from dry- ing out, but nothing else as they require light to germinate. Keep in a temperature of around 65 degrees F. making certain they do no dry out at any time. Germination usually takes place in from 10 to 14 days when liny pin points of green src barely seen. Remove glass and from now on give all the light possible (not direct It is a good idea to put the flat in a plastic bag to provide UK humidity that is required. As the seedlings are shallow rooted it is most important they do not suffer from lack of moisture. Apply dilute fertilizer, 10-52-17 at the rale of 1 Ibsp, to a gallon of water every 5 (lays. The secret of success with tuberous begonias is they must not receive any check in growth at any lime. This moans giving them Iho proper tem- perature, moisture, and nu- In about six to eight weeks, or when large enough to han- dle, the tiny plants may be pricked out into flats, spacing them 114 to 2 inches apart each way, setting them only as deep as they were originally grow- ing. Tire same potting mixture as for seeding (only coarser) may be used, with the addi- tion of a little bone meal and some well-rotted manure or de- hydrated manure. It is not an easy bask picking out as they i so tiny, but if left to grow in original container they will not develop properly. You may need a pair of tweezers to han- dle the plants. From now on, with the lengthening days, they will grow quite rapidly. Before they get to the stage where they are crowded, transplant into S inch pots and then fin- ally into 8 inch pots. Make sure they are well watered and shaded from the bright sun- light. Don't forget to add a lay- er of small gravel for drainage in the bottom of the pots and some charcoal to keep the soil sweet before filling them with compost. Last January 29 I wrote an article on growing begonias from tubers. 1 will not repeat this at this time, but because of a number of enquiries received throughout the year I would like to write my next article on questions and answers con- cerning tuberous begonias. NOTE: All questions should be sent with self addressed- stamped, envelope to Mrs. I. R. Young, 3620 Centre B. St. N.W., Calgary 43. Due to the number of letters asking more thau one question It la requested in future enquiries that only ONE question be submitted each time as it IB impossible for Mrs. Young to reply to all correspondence and do her practical garden- ing as well.

The result is a cheerful greeting of myriad colors from day-potted flowers fabric is a perfec solution to and the color mood change witj the seasons.

Use of fabric is a perfect solution to minimize architectural defects such as a sloping coiling ant accompanying low walls. For this problem, line walls with patterned fabric and make a tent of the ceiling with the same fabric. Narrow entryways and too- high ceilings become an asset by covering the walls with light-colored fabric and using a darker material on the ceiling. A nature buff can create an ecology wall, too. Use extra- strength adhesives and apply green velvet or shag carpet tiles to the wall areas. Dis- play plants, mineral specimens and animal figurines on tiny glass shelves against this grass- like backing. Those who want lo set an Oriental tone, perhaps with an indoor garden alcove, now may select from an array of handcraflcd bnlik designs.

Newspaper Enlcrpriir Larger rugs should be fasten- ed down. Rug edges that may be curling should be tacked in place. Repair torn spots in car- peting or replace. Use a rubber mat in the bath tub to prevent slipping. If you can, install handrails so you have something to hang onto when you climb out of the tub; Keep paths clear. You should be able to walk from one door- way to another without detour- ing around anything. That's es- pecially important at night. Watch where you run electric cords. In order to avoid trip- ping over them, some people run cords under a rug. So in- stead of tripping, they walk over them enough to wear out the insulation and cause a fire hazard instead. Replace cords that show any sign of fraying or cracking. Don't run cords through a door- way. The door closing against it .will cause damage. Watch out how you handle appliances. Don't probe a toast- er with a metal object while it is still plugged in. Don't at- tempt repairs or internal ad- justments on any electrical item while It is connected. Use only heavy-duty extensions on large appliances. Watch out how you things. Piles of newspapers and magazines are a fire hazard. Don't keep oil rags in the house. If you must do so, store them in closed metal contain- ers. Inflammable materials should be kept in well-stoupered metal containers and away from the house if possible. Wherever you have them should be a well- ventilated area or a fire could start from spontaneous com bustlon. Have a locked cabinet for poisonous items, notably clean- ing solutions and solvents, so that children cannot get at them. Keep medicines well out of their reach too, even those that seem harmless. Too much aspirin for a child is not harm- less. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)
