All are epiphy- c, that is, they grow on trees other plants. The most pop- ar is Platycerium bifurca- m, which has greyish-green onds to three feet. Staghorns produce two types leaves or fronds. The sterile vegetative fronds which are iin, flat and rounded, grow ore or less flat and close to e tree or object on wliich the ant is situated thus providing home for young plants. The ges of the leaves are ruffled looed which enables them to tch and hold twigs and other janic matter as well as mois- ture, upon which the plant, sub- bearing leaves are ilat, nar- row and pendant, anil extend out from the object on which the plant is growing. They spread and fork out at the tip resembling' the flat, branching horns of a slag, hence the com- mon name The pendulous fronds produce spores on the undersides to- wards the tips. These resemble patches of irregular rust. These ferns are quite slow growers and so can be kept as a house plant for a number of 3'ears before they get too big. When growing in hanging bas- kets they are quite attractive. They are usually grown in a mixture comprising c q u a parts of sphagnum moss an osmunda fibre or peat mos and leafmold, or if this is no I sides.

For best results Ihe fern should be planted in a hanging type of container lined wit sphagnum moss if loosely con structed, with the plants grow ing out from the side inste; of the top. If you have facilities in greenhouse these ferns may be grown on pieces of cork bar fixed on the wall in such a i to form pockets, which are fill ed with the rooting medium The plant is then arranged on the surface of the compost Pieces of tree trunk or cork bark (cedar, etc.) may also inserted in large pots fillet with pebbles or crushed brick to hold it in place. The 'sterile fronds which rest against the wood are held in position by some of the compost being placed behind the fronds. It is quite often necessary to wire the plant to the support until it becomes established. Great care must be cised in applying moisture. Ovenvatering can be fatal. In the winter months water spar- ingly, just enough to keep the compost from drying out. Good light is essential, but do not give direct sunlight. From spring nnlil about mid-Septem- ber Ihe plant appreciates a humid atmosphere. Misting in the morning and early evening, on a bright day, will help. Propagation is liy offshoots or plantlels produced at the base of the plant. These are cut from the parent piant and set in compost in small containers, moving lo larger ones as Ihey grow. Offshoots arc usually re- moved from a plant which makes a more attractive and smaller clump.

Instead cf being a shelter for the fami'y automo- bile it is a storehouse, tool shed .and workshop. It is the place where bikes, wagons and baby carriages are parked. But not a place for a car. In warm weather that's O.K., but ivhen cold weather comes, you may find yourself scurry- ing to find end squeezing, scratching and damaging everything in sight. Planned properly, all the storage space you need may he there. It is just a matter using it correctly. First determine just how much space you really need for the car. Shove things against the wall or drag them out into ihe yard until you have room lo drive in easily. Open the car doors ajid make certain ran swing easily on both sides. Make chalk marks on the Poor to Hole where the boundaries are. Life will be easier if you can arrange to keep as much off tte floor as possible. If your garage has a gable roof there's usable space overhead. A floor or even a partial floor will hold more than you expect. Use 2 x Is or 2 x 8s set 16 inches apart Keep debris from Waiving In by weaUierotripptag (lie bottom of the door. Large rubber gas-i made fcr this pin-pose are available. If you have a piec of old garden hose, slit on side of it so that ycu can faste it to the bottom of the door 'at' jcists. Make as many shelves as ou can on both side walls. On the back wall of the garage you lan put up shelves above the leight of the car's hood. Simple, small shelves for mall obji iecls can be made fitliout even allowing them to ut out if Ihe walls of your ga- age are open, as most of them ire. With weed scraps, make mall shelves to fit between the tuds. They will hold small ans cf paint, containers of ails and screws and ether mall objects.
