The front entrance is at grade level with inside steps leading to the living room. The one and a half car garage would hold a full size car plus a small car. However, the smaller section could be converted, as shown by the dotted lines, into a workshop, den, or an additional bedroom. Behind the garage are utility and storage rooms and an extra washroom. There is a full basement beneath the Living - kitchen area.

NAME .. ADDRESS (Leth.) YOUR GARDEN By Isabella R. Young, F.R.H.S. THE BENEFITS AND USES OF PEAT INHERE are many uses for peat moss. At this time of the year when people are potting and sowing it is used in the different media such as - 2 parts loam, 1 part each peat moss and sand, or 1 part loam, 1 part peat moss and 1 part perhte, for starting seeds in. For greenhouse benches use 3 parts loam, 1 part peat moss and 1 part sand. These mixtures, and similar ones, are becoming quite popular because of their lightness and success with germination.. They may also be utilized for root cuttings. Peat moss may also be used for rooting begonia and other bulbs before they are potted up. With these soilless composts, feedings of liquid fertilizer will have to be given. Peat is valuable as a soil conditioner in the garden. When applied, it improves the humus content thus giving the soil a better texture, which makes it more easily workable, thus plants are able to establish a better root system. It keeps the soil open and also increases its water - holding capacity. It keeps particles of heavy clay apart, as most of us know, when a clay soil is wet, a sticky mass results. Caking and pack ing would result after receiving any moisture if soil condition ers were not used. On the other hand, in light soils, peat moss prevents the rain from seeping down to levels where it is useless to plant life by absorbing water and gradually releasing this moisture during dry periods. In the spring, a dressing of Modernization of kitchen easy 1 'V ,s"Jwfcfli Everyone can now economically modernize a kitchen thanks to a new, simplified method. Whether you do part, all or none of the work, substantial savings can be effected when you know how the job is done. Simplified directions and over 90 step-by-step illustrations contained in this book take all the mystery and more than half the cost out of kitchen modernization. Directions tell how to plan and equip a kitchen to provide the most efficient layout. Because kitchens vary in size and shape, and every home presents a different combination of windows and doors, illustrations and step-by-step directions show how to modernize without relocating sink, range and refrigerator; also tells how to relocate same to obtain a more efficient operation. Floor plans illustrate and explain the L-shape kitchen along ' two walls, the U-shape on three walls, as well as the best working arrangement for cabinets and equipment along four walls. The corridor type on two walls, as well as the one wall apartment kitchen is also covered. Directions explain how to handle a low window, relocate a door, build a pass-through or convert, two rooms into a country style kitchen. Send $2.25 for Kitchen Modernization Book No. 608 to Carpentry Dept., The Lethbridge Herald, Box 806. Adelaide St. ?.0., Toronto, Ont. Editor's Note - The Herald does not handle these blueprints and it is necessary to send requests for them to the above address in Toronto. Please write the address as printed. (Copyright 1971 ___Toronto Star Syndicate) peat moss may be applied around established plants and gently worked into the soil. For a mulch, it is ideal. Spreading a layer around plants helps to conserve moisture during hot, dry periods. It is recommended that the peat moss be made wet before applying. To moisten it properly and easily, if you are using a small amount, put the peat in a tub and stir while warm water is added. If you just spread the peat out on the ground it does not readily take up the moisture. The water has a tendency to run through it and out at the bottom. There are also the Jiffy pots which are made in Norway and consist of 75 per cent long fibred peat and 25 per cent wood fibre. Jiffy-7's contain a complete growing media of peat and fertilizer and are excellent for seeding, cuttings or transplants. These are only two of the many items that contain peat moss. Lawns are also benefitted by a top dressing of a peat compost either in the fall or spring. A good compost cosists of 2 parts loam, one part peat moss or manure and one part sand (coarse). Mix thoroughly and in order to get rid of any lumps, put through a sieve. After cutting the lawn apply a thin covering over the lawn area and then work down between the blades of grass. Water thoroughly. Mr. A. - I never seem to have success with growing radishes. They are always pithy and have a strong flavor. Ans.-The secret to growing good radishes is to "grow them quickly". If grown slowly they bee o m e coarse, woody and tough. Mr. H.-Would you please tell me what is a good fertilizer for house plants. Ans.-You do not say what kind of house plants you are growing. You can use 20-20-20 for most plants except tropicals which require more nitrogen. For these you can use 18-12-6. All questions should be sent with self-addressed, stamped envelope to-Mrs. I. R. Young, 3620 - Centre B. St. N.W. Calgary 43. Something new for the gardener Who says that there is nothing new for the Canadian gardener. McKenzie Seeds, who sell Garden Seeds from Coast to Coast through selective dealers, are introducing a new product for Spring 1971. The product is known as "Fleuro-bel" and provides a combination of easy handling and planting with a package that protects the seed from deterioration so as to provide the gardener with "harvest - fresh seeds." For ease of handling and planting, each seed has been "pelleted." This means that each seed has been coated with a special coating material that will disintegrate upon contact when the right moisture is provided. Each seed is built up so that it is the size of a small ball-bearing, so that there is no difficulty in planting your seeds just how you would like them spaced. Just imagine, no more thinning and no more misses in your planting pattern! Another tremendous advantage for this new product is that each seed has been individually packed under environ- ment - controlled conditions, so that it is protected against the elements that cause seed to deteriorate. Sometimes seeds are distributed or displayed under poor conditions so that quick deterioration could take place, thus causing poor results for the consumer. However, with the Fleurobel package, deterioration of this nature can not take place so that the consumer can be assured that the seed is "harvest fresh." Another big advantage with Fluerobel Is that each seed has been individually protected in the foil and plastic pouch so that if all seeds are not required for the initial planting, no deterioration on the remaining seeds will take place, as long as the foil protectant back of these seeds has not been broken. Fleurobel pouches have been enclosed within colorful picture cards, showing how each variety will eventually perform. Each card has a circle cut out so that the moisture -proof pouch is exposed for view and each card provides full planting instructions.

'Persuaders' for clogged drains Ananias club The Ananias Club was formed during the administration of President Theodore Roosevelt. It was an expression employed by the press to avoid the word "liar" in connection with certain disputes, By MR. FIX When water goes down the drain slowly it won't be long before it doesn't go down the drain at all. Over a period of time there will be a build-up of foreign material in a drain. Grease and soap may cause a drain to fill up, and lint, hair and other bits of material will become trapped and eventually interfere with the flow of water. While chemical drain cleaners can be effective, they are the most hazardous household chemicals you can have around. Most of them are extremely caustic and must be used with extreme care. Milder solvent types also must be handled carefully. Using them in small amounts at frequent intervals is often recommended to prevent stoppage, but you can do just as well by occasionally pouring some boiling water down tire drain and allowing the hot water to run for a minute or two. Before going to work on the trap under the sink, check the drain opening itself. The strainer may have caught too much material and need cleaning. The underside of the metal stopper, the kind that is part of a bathroom sink, often has material clinging to it. The lavatory sink stopper that is in place permanently may be held in place with' a nut above or a coupling below, just above the trap. Careful examination will show you what must be loosened or removed in order to free the stopper. Once you have it out, scrub it well. Stoppage generally occurs in the trap, the U-shaped pipe below the drain opening. Purpose of the trap is to hold water which prevents sewer gas from I seeping back into the house. Most traps are equipped with a cleanout plug at the bend. Place a pail underneath to catch the water and then remove the plug with a wrench. Poke a wire into the drain to loosen the stopped - up material. If the trap has no plug you will have to remove this section of pipe. It can be done easily with an adjustable wrench. Protect the chrome with adhesive or masking tape. Clean the pipe with a brush and hot water. If the problem is minor (and sometimes even if it isn't) you may be able to handle it without taking the drain apart. Use a plunger (plumber's friend) which you can buy at any hardware store. This is a rubber cup with a wooden handle. Place the rubber cup over the drain opening first, making certain there is some water in the sink. Pump the handle up and down. This will generally loosen the obstruction. Repeat until you have the drain running free. If this doesn't work, try a flexible metal tool called a snake which is made for this purpose. This is along piece of spring steel with an auger on the end, Force this down through the drain from above. For toilet bowls there is another type of auger, shorter and sturdier for opening up a stopped drain. Try the plunger for toilet bowls as well. Floor drains in basement and garage floors sometimes close up because of sand and dirt accumulating in the trap. Tie an old spoon to an end of a stick and clean out some of it. Put the end of a garden hose in the drain and wash away the rest. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.). Woo�c4> SAVE .24 to .96 BOYS' AND GIRLS' HOSIERY CLEARANCE Orlons, Nylons, Wool-Nylon blends.
