The kitchen located in the front area, housewives convenient a feature .many appreciate. It is to both outside doors and basement stairs. All kitchen doors are of the single sliding type with a corner sink, and the cofee nook is gen- erous. One step down to the side entrance landing is a con- venient washroom. The prtective overhang of the garage rot provides shel- tered access to and from the garage. Another added feature is the recessed storage closet in the garage. The basement has laundry facilities, a fruit room with shelves, roughed in plumbing for a future toilet and plenty of space for a future family room. Construction is frame with brick accent but details for building in brick are supplied with plans. Repair those cracks liy FIX Sidewalks are not indestruc- tible. They crack. They brc.-ik. They sink hetow the level of surrounding slabs. The result makes for awk- ward walking at best, unsafe walking at worst. Especially bad is a section of that has sunk about an inch or so. Sidwalks like that trip walkers and bring on lawsuits. Repairing small cracks early csn help you avoid major re- pair work later on. Water seep- ing into and through a crack will loosen the earth under- neath. Subsequent freezing and thawing will cause the concrete slab to heave. To repair a crack, first en- large it with a hammer and cold chisel. Make the opening la-ger at the bottom than at the surface. Remove all loose material. Wet thoroughly and fill with fresh concrete. Use a ready-mix concrete patch to which you add water. Make the patch slightly higher than sur- rounding surfaces, then level it off. A sidwalk can be perfectly sound yet sink because of earth settling below it. Or subsoil may have washed away. You can make repairs if you work on only one section at a time. Do not try to raise an entire slabe, particularly if you are working alone or wiUi mini- mum help. If the slab has not cracked along one of the cross lines already, use a cold chisel and break the walk along the score line. Keep working until you have broken all the way taough. Before you raise Uie section of walk, measure the depth to which it has sunk and you will jet some idea how much ma- .erial you will need to fill. If adjoining sections are sloping, figure on raising them as well, one at a time. Loosen the soil around the edges of the walk and remove a strip of dirt several inches wide and as deep as the sunken walk. Use a pick or crowbar to raise the edges all around. Don't lilt just free the slab. With a crowbar hit one edge. HARVEST BIG VALUES Get in on the big Harvest Time Savings at Safeway this week Prices effective through October 16 FRESH TOKAY GRAPES YOUR GARDEN By Isabelle R. Young, F.R.H.S. By ISABELLE K. YOUNG F.H.R.S. WINTER PROTECTION FOR RASPBERRIES important factors for successful production of raspberries are satisfactory varieties and adequate winter protection. It is these last three words I wish to comment on. Most raspberry canes winter- kill unless given adequate pro- tection. There are some that can survive if grown in favor- able locations. Two good varie- ties that are quite hardy are Boyne and Killarney. Boyne is quite a heavy producer yield- ing as much as 27 Ibs. to 30 feet of row. These, perhaps, might be worthy of a trial. Preparing canes for winter should start around the end of October. This is what part of a weekly newsletter from Lethbridge He- search Station states: "Rasp- berry buds only require a short period of cold weather to break dormancy and be ready to re- sume growth if warm weather returns for a few days. The canes can therefore lose their cold hardiness quite rapidly if exposed to high temperatures such as we experience during some chinooks. Consequently, cold spells following chinooks in late winter can kill the canes. New canes will develop from the old rootstocks, but in most, varieties will not produce any quantity of fruit the first year. "To ensure a crop, the canes must be protected from the dyring effect of Chinook winds and from the warn winter tem- peratures. This protection can be achieved by bending the Jigsaw patterns Regardless of whether a child uses a fifty-cent coping saw or a more expensive elec- trical jigsaw, full size patterns simplify and encourage his making eight handsome, build- it yourself projects.

NOW IS THE TIME FOR FAIL PLANTINGI Wt have a good selection of trees, shrubs, and Perennials at LACOMBE NURSERIES LTD. One mile west of Coaldale en Highway No. 3 We tire also taking orders for spring planting We will prune your trees and shrubs LACOMBE NURSERIES Ltd, S One mile west of Coaldale on Highway No. 3 Closed Sundays canes over a mound of soil and then burying them, with 3-4 in- ches of soil. The latter half of October is a good time to do this. Tlie plans should be un- covered in late April when tiere is little danger of severe cold." The foregoing method of win- ter protection should ceceive consideration in any area where Chinook winds are likely to remove snow cover. Grow- ing the plants sufficiently close to shelterbelts or buildings where snow drifting is likely to occur will help to ensure ade- quate snow coverage. Experi- ence mil, of course, dictate the best method. In well sheltered locations, the hardier verities can often be grown successfully without any winter protection. Where canes can be left stand- ing, it is often a good practise to delay the removal of the dead canes until spring as the extra canes will help to hold snow about the plants during the whiter. W. What can I do to prevent the tops of my Birch trees from dying off in the spring? These are fairly old trees and were quite nice. Ans. Tire Birch trees must have an adequate supply of water, as in their natural habi- tat they grow in most, shaded forest soil or along the banks of rivers and lakes. If not given suitable growing conditions, es- pecially ample water, you wil' find the Briches mil suffer from dieback of the tops. Most trees do not receive sufficient moisture when sprinkling the lawn. They should receive a thorough soaking by letting the water run from the hose with- out the nozzle. Sometime in October, water the trees in throughly in order to provide sufficient moisture during the winter. This should be not only carried out with Birch trees, but all your trees, rose bushes and shrubs would benefit from this treatment.

Work blocks under When you get it high enough prop it with a length of two by four. Get it up about a foot so you have room to work. Shovel gravel or cinders under the slab. Spread tile fill with a rake. Never reach under the slab. Spread evenly and don't leave any chunks. Lower this part of the side- walk, move to nother edge and repeat. Shoving scrap lumber under a two-by-four will give you the leverage you need once you have loosened the slab. With the slab level, repair the crack between the slabs and refill the excavated area around it. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)
