14 THE IEIHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, July 3, 1970 HOME OF THE WEEK This handsome Colonial De- 'sign would be the ideal home for a large family. All rooms are larger than average espe- cially in the four bedroom ar- rangement. However, there ii an optional arrangement for the upper floor showing five bedrooms. Note that in both plans t h e master bedroom has a separate washroom and a huge walkin closet. It will be noted that all bedrooms large closets, and in some in- stances, also a built-in dresser. Linen, towel and broom closets are conveniently placed on the upper floor. On the lower floor there is a Family Room which could be used as dining room if preferred. Named For Cry The aye-aye, a bug eyed lemur, was named for the cry it makes. The animal is about the size or a house cat. It uses its spidery fingers to reach into tree trunks to hook grubs. Bush Type Balsams There are bush type balsams as well as the taller type with which you are more familiar. These "shorties" can be used as a border or are very pretty when potted individually and set on a terrace or patio. Read the labels on the seed packets and try the bush type. TSeiv Higlnvay "Safety Shoulder' Straying Drivers Warned Highway researchers may have found a partial answer to the problem of keeping -sleepy or inattentive drivers from straying out of traffic lanes and off the highway. Engineers for the Illinois Di- vision of Highways have de- signed and tested a concrete "safety shoulder" that acts in three ways to warn the drowsy motorist he is drifting into dan- ger. The warning is produced by corrugations molded into the concrete of t'he shoulder before it hardens. The "rumble which can be continuous or placed at regular intervals, warns the driver by sight, sound, and touch if his car moves to the shoulder. The corrugations "sing" against the tire to give an audible alarm and vibrations transmitted to the steering wheel warn him by touch. Vis- ually, the corrugations make the shoulder stand out in con- 49-0 HOMOGRAF COMPANY OF CANADA 40 JARVIS AT KING E., TORONTO I. ONTARIO.

NAME ADDRESS (Lett.) Sometimes Late Swallows at the mission of San Juan Capistrano arrive with considerable regularity each spring, but certainly not always on a specific date, as often stated. Some years they may be a week or so early, some years a week or so late. Heartbeats Elephants and horses have heartbeats of 25 40 times per minute while in rats and mice the rate is 300 500 per min- ute, compared with the human heartbeat of 72 times per min- ute. YOUR GARDEN By Isabella R. Young, F.R.H.S. CHORES TO DO BEFORE VACATION COME of you may have al- ready gone on holidays, but for those who are still around there are some chores that can be done to help carry your .gar- den through this period. July is when very rapid growth takes place in the gar- den. H you have mostly peren- nials around your home there is not too much of a problem. See that they are staked and tied well to protect against dam- age from winds and heavy rains. Weeds should be elimin- ated, as much as possible, or they could take over the gar- den before you get back. If you have a good neighbor or friend who will do some wa- tering, if required, you are lucky, otherwise you will have to give a thorough soaking just before you leave, at least the equivalent of 2 inches of water. To find out how long it takes to furnish 1 inch of water place several tin cans in several places in the garden and after watering for one hour measure the depth of water in the cans. In this way you can gauge how long it will take to produce the required amount of moisture. Watering is best done in the early morning when there is the least evaporation. After watering, cultivate light- ly and mulch with chopped straw, strawy manure, peat moss or grass clippings that have not been treated recently with 24D. If there are'slugs in your area spread slug bait around plants and under the mulch. Clean up any unwanted refuse, such as dead leaves, etc. as slugs hide under whatever protection they can get, espe- cially in moist, damp places, during the- day. With all this care your garden could last a couple of weeks and with the odd rain shower, even three weeks, Spray your plants with mala- thion for any aphids, and if you are troubled by leaf miners on your lilacs or birches apply Cy- gon. Your veget a b 1 e s should be thinned out carrots to at least of an inch, beets about 1 inch and turnips 3 inches apart. If you have tomato plants tie with pieces of old nylons as this does not cut the stems. Prune off some of the blossoms so extra growth will go into the ones left. Dust your cabbage and cauliflower plants with Dcritox or any other suitable vegetable dust. Hedges should c pruned and any dead material on trees, flowers, etc. should be trimmed off. With regard to your lawn, cut before you leave and try to get someone lo mow it at least once a week while you are away. Happy Holidays! Mrs. D. How long can 1 sow radish seed? Ans. They can be planted up until about the end of July. Mrs. H. I have the zinnia called Envy, which is an apple green color. I was told if I plant- ed it in semi shade that the color would be deeper. Is this true? Ans. Yes. This is so. The strong sunlight all day tends to fade the color. Mrs. G. When can I move my Oriental Poppy? It is grow- ing quite fast aid I want to put it in a different part of the garden. Ans. K you want to move am Oriental Poppy it should be done before hardly any growth has started in the spring, oth- erwise you will have to wait until August when the plant is dormant. Any questions should be sent with self addressed, stamped envelope to Mrs. I young, 3620 Centre B. St. N.W., Cal- gary 43.

(Copyright Toronto Star Syndicate) HERE'S NEW SAFETY SHOULDER-New type of concrete highway shoulder developed by the Illinois Division of Highways has built-in corrugations to warn inattentive drivers by sight, sound, and touch. Engineers believe the new shoulders besides being perform better, last longer, and cost less to maintain. trast with the smooth pave- ment surface. Alerted by signals involving (hree senses, the driver can re- gain control and steer back to the traffic lane. The Bureau of Public Roads, highway agency lot the Fed- eral Department of Transporta- tion, has encouraged state high- way department to evaluate the design, construction, and performance of concrete high- way shoulders similar to tire Illinois design. The bureau has suggested that test sections be built in at least two states in each of its nine regions. Engineers for the Portland Cement Association, national research organization for the cement industry, also will be watching the performance of the "safety shoulder" at s i t e s throughout the country. The association reports that several states already have test sections planned. Easy To Send SOS, the internationally ac- cepted call for help from a ship in distress, was chosen be- cause it was convenient to send on the early wireless transmit- ters. Transformation Between i per cent and 3 per cent of the light that falls upon a green land plant is transformed into chemical en- ergy. Most Deadly The mushroom known as tire "death cup" is regarded as the world's most poisonous fungi. Handmade Bottles Glass bottles as containers for liquids were handmade in the United States until 1880, when a machine was invented for making wide-mouthed glass jars.
