Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 5, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THE IETHBRIDOE HERAID - Friday, March 5, 1971 Save that junk! By MR. FIX Anyone can put together a good, basic assortment of tools. It isn't the tools that mark the good home repair man - it's the odds and ends of material that are the gauge of his experience. Just as the woman of the house learns to hang on to buttons, pins and odds and ends of cloth, so does the man of the house learn to squirrel away an assortment of junk into which he delves during a crisis. The garden hose that is no longer worth mending for example. Don't throw it away, When you bind young trees to stakes driven in the ground slipping wire through a piece of hose will keep it from cutting through the tree. Slip a piece of hose over the narrow tip of a hose nozzle when you wash the car and you won't scratch the paint if you get too close. Slit a length of hose and nail it to the bottom of an overhead garage door. It will absorb the shock when the door hits the cement and will serve as makeshift but perfectly adequate weather-stripping. And what about wire? Next time you snip a piece of wire that was baled around a car ton or bundle, coil it carefully and put it away. After you have finished a house-wiring job, save the odds and ends of wire. You will find wire handy for mending and fastening. If there is to be a strain on it .use steel rather than copper wire. You will find wire useful in the garden. Electric wire with insulation is great for tying up plants. �So are the paper-covered wires that keep bread bags closed. Are there a few bricks around the yard? Don't toss them in the rubbish. Place a couple in the trunk of your car, They're handy for blocking wheels while you change a tire. . Set garbage cans up on bricks to keep them from standing on moist ground and misting. If you are lucky enough to have acquired something that came in burlap bags, hang on to the bags. Use them in the garden to fill with leaves, debris or even top soil. Cut them into strips and bind the trunks of young trees to protect them from cold weather and the teeth of small animals. Old bedspreads and sheets can double as tarpaulins for such jobs as piling on leaves to be gathered and hauled away. An old bedspread or a large sheet of cardboard can substitute for a tarp when you dig a hole and you want to pile the dirt on something so that it doesn't ruin the grass. Eventually, you will want to acquire a good tarp. .Has a tree been cut down in your yard or nearby? Get a section of the trunk and save it for a chopping block. Then you can use your ax or hatchet properly when the time comes. Your wife probably has a collection of old jars with lids on them. Use them for such small items as nuts, bolts, screws, washers. Coffee cans with replaceable plastic lids are great for nails and longer bolts and screws. Use cans for cleaning paint brushes. Fill with solvent and allow the brushes to soak. Every house should have a small lumber pile. It consists of whatever you can scrounge or salvage. Avoid rotted pieces of wood with rusty nails. Knock-apart wooden crates, remove nails and bolts and store. The wood many come in handy for small repair jobs,, tomato stakes or even a little rough carpentry. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)

Toronto Star Syndicate) YOUR GARDEN By Isabella R. Young, F.R.H.S. LATE FLOWERING PERENNIALS TX) extend the flowering season in your garden, I would like to mention some of the later flowering perennials. Lavatera cachemiriana has always been a favorite in our garden. It grows up to 5 feet or so tall and has pink, mallow-like flowers, blooming from mid-July to the end of August and into September. This beau-in the garden. Our original seed and lasts for many years plant (there are several in the garden now) is over twelve years old. Although not late flowering, Dicentra e x i m a (Bleeding Heart), the fern leaf variety, deserves a place in any garden. It grows 12 inches high and blooms from early summer into fall. This is ideal for the rockery. Have you ever grown Liatris or Blazing Star? It reaches 24 inches in height and blooms from mid-summer into autumn. These beautiful plants always attract attention with their flowers of pink, white and pur-1 pie. It is rather unusual in that the flowers open from the top to the bottom on the plant, Another unusual plant is Echi-nops, ritro (Globe Thistle) growing 4 to 6 feet and bloom' ing from July to September. The foliage is quite prickly and the blue, globular heads have flowers that look like stars as they open up. Lythrum sal icaria (Loosestrife) makes a nice accent plant, growing 15 to 36 inches in height and blooms July to September. The flowers are purple and pink. These plants require a fair amount of moisture in sun or semi-shade. Aconitum (Monkshood) is an' other favorite in our garden, growing 3 to 4y2 feet with blue, blue and white flowers blooming from late summer to early fall. There is also a rare yel low variety A. lycoctonum, These grow best in semi-shade but if given plenty of moisture will also do well in sun. (Keep children away from these plants as they are poisonous). For an outstanding border plant, with their beautiful white Storage racks for guns, rods Second only to the correct use of guns is the correct care and storage. I personally prefer to store all my guns and ammunition in a locked cabinet. However, I also realize an open gun rack placed high on the wall adds much to the decor of a den or rec room. I would also strongly recommend that guns displayed in this manner be made completely inoperative in case they fall into wrong hands and become a clanger to the safety of your family. You can build either the cab- inet or racks illustrated out of most any wood but knotty pine has the most sporty look. Clear, easy-to-follow directions are provided along with pattern illustration and a list of materials. Send $1.50 in cash, cheque or money order (no stamps please) to Carpentry Dept. The Lethbridge Herald Box 806 Adelaide St. P.O. Toronto 1, Ont. for home improvement Book No. 630., Gun Cabinet and Racks. (Copyright 1971. Toronto Star Syndicate) \ flowers, Chrysanthemum maximum (S'hashta Daisy) never fails to please. There are singles and doubles, growing 15 to 36 inches and bloom from July to September. Consider the, lilies! The Day-lily is one flower that should be in every garden. They bloom over a much longer period than most perennials - from spring to fall. Although the individual flowers, which come in many beautiful colors, last only a day or two, a fresh new one opens almost every day. These grow in sun or semi-shade. Cimicifuga (Bug-bane) is another unusual perennial rarely seen in gardens. It grows 5 to 6 feet and is very showy with its slender spikes of creamy-white. The foliage is quite thick and dense and so the plant requires lots of room to grow. These do best in semi-shade, but if given plenty of moisture will grow in sun. He-lenium (Sneezeweed) grows 18 inches. A lovely flower to brighten up a garden with daisy-like flowers of yellow, crimson and bronze. Blooming period is from late summer to October. Physalis alkekengi (Chinese Lantern) grows 8 to 24 inches and is a valuable addition to any garden, but is especially prized by flower arrangers. The calyxes or pods turn a briliant orange-red color in the fall, looking like small red lanterns, which are best picked before a frost. Most people do not think of Goldenrod as a very attractive flower, but Solidago is a most colorful, late blooming pernnial with its golden-yellow, feathery flowers. Last, but not least, we have the Chrysanthemums which bloom in late summer and fall. In the garden they are very showy and as a cut flower they are invaluable. There are many different types and forms from the dainty pompons to the larger specimens. Most nurseries carry a few varieties. The Horticultural Guide carries a list of the Lethbridge introductions and introductions from other sources. This guide is obtainable from your department of Agriculture or from the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta. � * * Mrs. A. -I have a small plot that I would like to grow some vegetables in.

TAX TIPS This column has been prepared by. the Calgary District Office, Department of National Revenue, Taxation. It includes answers to some of the most commonly asked questions. Where unusual circumstances render the answers Inadequate to your needs, use your Income Tax Guide. If you are still In need of help, write to NATIONAL REVENUE, TAXATION, 205 ath Ave. S.E., Calgary 21, Alberta for additional Information. Questions and Answers Q. I have not received a T4 slip from one of my employers. Should I file my tax return without it? A. It is your responsibility to file your income tax return on or before April 30th each year. However, before filing your return without necessary information slip you should make every endeavour to obtain this slip. Write to your .employer and ask for a T4 slip. If you do not receive a reply to your letter, and the time comes for filling, then in order to avoid being penalized for filing late, send your return with the income from this employer estimated. Do not leave this income out when calculating your total income and attach a note to your return explaining that you do not have the T4 slip and giving the name and address of your employer and, if you have one, your employee number. Q. My wife and I both receive the old age security pension. Can we file one return for both of us? A. No. In Canada it is not permissable for people to file joint tax returns, every person who has a taxable income for the year must file his own income tax return. When filling in your income tax return you should remember that your wife's old age security pension is part of her income when you are 'calculating your married exemption. Q. My wife has Interest from bonds that I purchased for her in her name. Is this interest my wife's income or Is it my income because the original payment for bonds was made by me? A. The interest is your income because you purchased the bonds from your funds. The same rule would apply to dividends on shars, interest on savings accounts and so on. It is the person who had the money to invest who must report the income earned. Q. Last year I won a scholarship. Is this taxable? A. If the scholarship is a prize for academic achievement and has nothing to do with your job, it is not taxable. In other circumstances, you should take up the question with your District Taxation Office. Q. Is a gain from sale of shares taxable? A. Unless it is considered that trading in shares is part of your business, a gain made by buying and selling shares on the stock market is ordinarily not taxable. Q. Is there a limit below which interest does not have to be reported on my income tax? A. No. Interest income should be reported whether the amount is $1 or $1,000, even if no T5 slip has been received. Q. I am a resident in Canada and I receive a. retirement pension from the United States Company I worked for, and also U.S. Social Security. If this is subject to the Canadian income tax, is the tax calculated before deductions are taken out in the United States or on the amount that I receive here? A. First of all, both the pension from the American company and also your United States social security are income for taxation purposes in Canada. When calculating the amount of your income you should convert both these amounts into the Canadian dollar equivalent. If you pay income tax in the United States you will be entitled to a foreign tax credit on your Canadian income tax return. In all probability you will need to file a Tl general tax return, and in the Tl general tax guide there are instructions on how to calculate the tax credit. Q. My personalized income tax return is made out in my maiden name. I was married last year and I do have to file an income tax return now, but what do I do about my change of name? A. Be sure to make the necessary changes on your income tax return by striking out your maden name and entering your manned name in the "Correction" area immediately below the label on your income tax return.
