This is the chief difference between re- pairs on an electrical system and other repairs. Touching a live wire is the constant dan- ger, a danger that can ho elim- inated easily. REMOVE THE RIGHT FUSE WITH POWER OFF, M AXE NEEDED REPAIRS BE SURE WIRES ARE NOT LIVE, USE NEON TESTER DO NOT LEAVE BARE WIRES, COVERTHEM-> Just maku ceilain there are no live M'ires. Either pull the main switch, or null the fuse for the circuit you arc on. The important thing here is that you remove the right (use. With Ihe power off you can handle such things as switch or outlet replacement or installa- tion of new fixtures. Vou may want to change old noisy switches for silent ones or replace a standard switch with a dimmer, These jobs are sim- ply a matter of connecting the old uircs to the terminals of the new switch or outlet. It's jusl important that these wires not lie live. Gel youreelf a neon tester two wires wilh m e t a i prohes, the wires necled lo a tiny neon lifihl.

Young, F.R.H.S. good idea if you arc not sure which fuse to pull. The trouble with this is Dial it turns off everything in the house, includ- ing Hie refrigerator. You can make electrical re- pairs even simpler by identify- ing each fuse with circuit and then placing a list on the fuse box door. Turning on all the lights and then removing Ihc fuses one at a lime will tell yon which fuse is for which part of the house. Whatever the repair, don't leave exposed wires.

They certainly cre- ate a great deal of interest and excitement with their sparkling colors In shades of red, orange, salmon, violet, pink, wlu'te, etc., either plain, striped or border- ed in a contrasting color. Many of the blooms arc over eight inches across and look like jumbo lilies. For Ihc novice, it is very easy to grow. There are differ- ent mixtures for polling up an Amaryllis. I use 2-3 loam and 1-3 sand and manure (pack- aged) mixed. Any compost that is porous, rich and retains moisture is satisfactory. Some- times it is possible to purchase planted bulbs in a pot of com- post, wliicli require only mois- ture and the proper tempera- lure lo bring them into growth. It Is recommended, that before planting, soak the base of the bulb in a saucer of warm wa- ter for about 12 hours. Do not get the top part wet. Plant in a 5 or 7 inch pot or one about twice as wide aj the bulb. Cov- er the bottom of the drainage hole with broken pieces of pot adding some fine gravel over this. FBI pot with half the soil mixture and set the bulb on (his, working the rooLs careful ly so they go down into the earth. Cover only one-third or the thickest part of the bulb Press soil down lightly around it making certain Ihcre are no air pockets under the bulb. .cr once during Ihe first week as too much moisture is not re- quired at this time. Sunlight is also not necessary while the )ud is developing. Place newly potted Amaryllis a warm temperature of 70 to 75 degrees F. in a shaded spot. During the second week, more water may be given to keep Ihe soil only slightly moist. This should he given by filling a saucer wilh lukewarm All or any water that is lefl in the saucer aller about thirty minutes should he emptied As soon as growth starts, then you can gradually increase Ihe amount and frequency of wa- tering. The flower bud usually emerges before the leaves. When it is six lo eight inches high, place plant m Ihc light, in a cooler temperature. It large bulbs are planted, it is not un- common for two flower spikes to grow. Some of the African Amaryllis bloom around Christ- mas. However, if bloom is re- quired for a special time, plant bulbs five Lo six weeks before- hand. For earlier flowering, place pots in a warmer loca- tion. To retard growth, place in a 50 degree temperature at the stage when the first bud is he- ginning to open. Keep (lie plant in filtered shine. Aflcr [lowering, put the planl in full sun to keep the foliage growing, which pro- vides food lo develop the flow er hud wilhin the bulb. Feed every Uvo weeks with a com- plete fertilizer. Set plant out- doors in the ground during the summer, in a shaded, slKllcred spot. A little manure may he worked into the top of the soil. Before a frost bring indoors and put in a cool 50 degree F. tem- perature, discontinuing water- ing. When the foliage has lurn- ed 3'ellow, cut oil. uncVs- turbed for about three months tSometime in December, bring upslairs and repeat culture as before. Mrs. P.
