WINTERING ROSES 7TALF the batlle against win-1 ler injury is won in the plants enter the winter in well- ripened condition. Preparation for this should start in Hie spring if it is lo be successful. Insect and disease damage should he kept lo a minimum because this cit.cn results in a slow-growing busli. Fertiliza- tion should be discontinued some time around the begin- ning of August lo allow the wood to ripen or barden before severe cold sets in. In late summer, it is a good idea to cut roses with as short a stem as possible as cutting with long stems is the equivalent of heavy pruning, which tends lo Induce new growth, and this should be discouraged at this time of the year. With fall upon us and flowers nt an end, it is time for those of us who grow roses to consider ways and means of protecting them (luring the winter. No method will guarantee Ilia! you will not have any losses. Most winter injury results from the wood drying out and the alter- nate freezing and thawing which occurs in late winter and early spring. Before heavy frosts occur, roses should be well watered as they could be seriously injured if (heir roots are dry when the ground freezes. Do not put protection about your roses while the leaves are still on (he bushes as (his is inviting (rouble through various fungus di- seases. If necessary, pull or cut the leaves off the bushes Remove all dead stems and debris, raking carefully aroumi each plant. Spray tlie entire plant and surrounding soil wilh a good fungicide and insecti- cide lo prevent carrying over of diseases and Insects on and around Ihe plant. Some people prune their rose bushes in the fall, hut T prefer to do most of mine in (he spring as Ihcre is almost sure to Ire some winter kill, and you will have to prune in the spring anyway. Cut down any overly long canes to Rbout 12 inches and (hen tie Ihe bush carefully, but firmly together. Correct storage and care of guns Sraxinil only in correct of guns is I lie rcirrrct rare and fctor.icc. It is preferable tn store all guns and ammunition in a lock- ed r-abinel. However, it is also realized an open gun rack plac- ed high on Ihc wall adds mucb to Ihc decor of a den or TCC room. II is strongly recommend- ed lhat guns displayed in this manner be made completely in operative in case Ibey fall Into wrong hands and Iiccomc a danger lo llie safely of your family. You can build either Ihe cabi- net or racks illustrated out of most any wood but knotly pine has the most sporty look.

The amoiuit of insulation re- quired depends on the severity if the winter in one's locality and also the condition of the ilants at the lime lhat is, lave they been properly con- ditioned. There are many ways o winterize roses, and some may be more successful than others. As mentioned previous- y, howci-er, no method is 100 per cent perfecl. Hounding with eartli seems to be (he most lopular method. After follow- ing instructions above, when he coltj has set in and after several severe frosts, you can nound the earth up around the rushes to around 12 inches dig Ihe soil from arount the bushes as this disturbs the plant's superficial roots. It is not a good idea to use manure leaves lo cover roses as these materials could cause cane rot by keeping Ihe plants Loo moist during Ihc winler After the ground has frozen hard an adrtlional covering o slraiv flopped willi twigg> branches) or evergreen bough, may be used.

Miniatures arc quite hardy and may be treated Ihc same hybrid leas. Some rose varieties are hardier than others, so don't blame yourself if you lose a few.

But ladders do break. Check 'or splits and cracks as well as rot. The supports under the rungs may have weakened and need lightening or repairing. Never paint a ladder Paint can cover a crack. Protect the wood and keep it in good con- dition by coating ig with linseed oil. Treat a wooden scaffold or plank (he same way, checking it often for cracks. Melal ladders should be check- ed for loosened nuts and bolts, for bent rungs. Check carefully for rough spots, sharp edges and burs. File these before they injure you. Learn and maintain good safety practices in using a lad- der. Don't climb a ladder in a high wind. It's smarter lo wait for another time, even another day. Know the right anjOe at which lo place a ladder. Too close to the bouse and it could fall. Too far and il might break under your weight, the foot of the ladder should placed a dis- tance from the house lhat is about a quarter of its length. Keep the foot of the ladder on firm ground. Soft earth or asphalt require metal cleats on (he base of the ladder. Loosely filled sandbags at the foot of a ladder will keep it from slip- ping. So will a board staked across the foot. An arm's length without stretching is far enough lo reach from a ladder. If you have to let go or lift one foot off, you are reaching loo far. Face the ladder when you climb up and down. Don't stand on the top step of a ladder and never try to work from the very lop. Don't extend an ex- lension ladder lo its limit. Keep metal ladders away from wires. Keep any ladder away from a hornet's nest. WORLD ALMANAC FACTS The planet Mars has two satellites, Deimos and. Phobos, which are about 5 and 10 miles in diameter.
