Ee especially careful of piaied metals, since frequent clearing and pclishing cf these may cut through the plating. Tw besi way to deal wiih plated is to give them a protective coaling while they aio siill new. Use clear lac- quer. This will protect the sur- face and make cleaning easy. Before applying lacquer, clean thoroughly with a mild polish, then remove all traces <'f the polish by rinsing denatured alcohol. Two coats of lacquer should be brushed or sprayed on. The job will be easier and neater if you can remove the pieces be- fore lacquering. solid copper, brass and bronze do not hare surfaces that wear out. lacquering is a good idea with these as well since it will prevent tarnishing. Use soap and water to clean liiem alter using a metal polish prior to lacquering. Avoid lacquer where the object might come in contact with flame or heat. Copper, bronze or brass surfaces not cleaned for soire time will become pitted. Start by cleaning with a mild kitch- en cleanser. Pinse wiih hot water.

Avoid strong cleaning agents since these discolor aluminum. If aluminum is used outdoors, give it a light coat of wax. Stainless steel, in spile of its name, will stain slightly when some substances dry on the sur- face. Soap and water will get rid of most slains. Acid-containing foods cause discoloration which can be removed with a metal polish. Allowing vinegar to stand in a steel pan that is EtrJned or burned will help. On clim.'itittm, use soap and water or a mild polish. Harsh abrasives will scratch the sur- i face. (Newspaper Enterprise Asso.)

ADDRESS YOUR GARDEN By Isabella R. Young, F.R.H.S. GRASSHOPPERS CTARTTNC- this I had intended writing on sub- jects requested by readers of the paper. However, during last week, after seeing in one of our local newspapers the ser- ious outbreak of grasshoppers that is forecast for 1S73, I thought I would pass on to you Information contained in a let- ter from tee Lethbridge Re- search Station Trhich I recently received. While the grasshopper does have many natural ene- mies such as birds, rodents, flies, spiders, beetles, etc. it is almost necessary to spray or dust if proper controls are to be established. Chlordar.e. or methoxychlor for fruits vegetables may be used, but for further information on this, consult your local depaitmerit of agriculture. The following is written by Dr. D. S. Smith, Entomologist summer of 1972. despiie a cool start and a consequent delay in hatching, wss very favorable for grasshoppers. The hatch extended over .several weefcs and the number of nymphs surviving was high. Adults did not begin ra appear in appreciable numbers until the last week of June. From then on development was rapid. Egg laying started early in Au- gust and continued into October.; "The population density was greater in 1972 than in the pre- vious year. The heavy popula- tions not only n'sre more num- erous but also were spread over larger areas. The inter- vening areas also supported' more grasshoppers than in 1971. In all. there has been a con-1 siderahlc buildup throughout! the region susceptible to grass- hopper infestations. "There are three areas of par- ticular concern. The largest ex- tends broadly from Nanton through Cannangay, Vauihall, and Taber. then south to War- ner and east to Bow Island ar.d Manybernes. A second area lies ber-veen a lir.e :rom G'ei- chcn to Brooks EM the Red Deer River. The third lies along the Saskatchewan border bervreen Schuier ar.d Alsask.
