Drawers Ihiil worked all winter did because Hie air was dry. 13ul moist air during tho summer causes woorl lo swell. Drawers are generally made o[ soft wood and left unfinish- ed, hence the problem.

If lubrication doesn't help, sand the sliding parts until the drawer works freely. If the rub- bing is severe and sanding doesn't work, yon may have to plane off a small amount of j wood.

SAVING GLADIOLUS BULBS "yHERE liave been some magnificent spikes of gladiolus in the gardens this year, I have a basket of mixed ones in Ihe living room and the colors are so bright and beau- tiful Uiey afmosl sparkle, It is worth white keeping glad bulbs or ''ccrms" as Uiey are botanically knoun, from one year to Lhe next, and il re- quires very little time and ef- Young, F.R.H.S. fort. In this way, you also build up a real collection. After the gladiolus tops have been killed by frost it is time to dig up the plants, being careful not to damage them. GenUy shake oEf the earth. Cut off the lops to 6 inches above the corm (some cut them off as close as pos- siblel. I like to leave parl nf the top on as it is easier to handle them for curing. Tie in bunches, dust with 5 per cent DDT powder, and hang in a Build a garage and save money By DONALD li. Up to recently, building a garage was a costly venture, and when completed, people stored their cars. in- creased crime and vandalism has greatly increased the need for a garage, many are still being built for other reasons. Some arc used as hobby shops or studios, others arc convert- ed for extra living space for loveahle relatives. Since the cost of materials only represents a fraction Oi ivhat a garage costs built by others, a sizeable capital gains can he made by those who built it themselves. To simplify construction, two new books now explain every step. Realizing Ihe average home- owner has rcrvrr built a ga- rage, the hook explains every step from selecting the most logical site, digging foundation trenches, laying concrete blocks, to framing walls, ap- plying roofing and siding. Con- struction of a- one car garage containing space for a work- bench is explained in Book No. MO. Over CO illustrations sim- plify construction of a n' by 22'8" garage. When completed, yon have a building worth be- tween Ihrce lo four times the cost of m.ilrrials. A fwn cnr gnivigo nir.iMiriug I 211' x 21' is explained in Hook No. re. Goth garages provide ample space for a six foot workbench. The one car garage provides space for a garden tool slorage closrt a srparale oul.sidt! door. We recently had n Idler from one book buyer who adapted the directions outlined in Book No. 680 to build a stable. They raised the left side one foot, then used IhLs frame for both sides. By extending the overall length 6', they obtained space for a small Lack room. A box stall measuring 10' x 10' was built into one corner. A tack room measuring G1 x 8' was built adjacent to the j stall. This provided space for! a four foot stall doer opening into a T1 passageway that open- ed up into l.T x 10' hay slor- age area, A Wheelbarrow, ma- nure basket, forks and oilier needed tools were hung or stored in Ihe over 3 ft. wide area outside the box stall. The stall door, hinged on .side adja cent to lark room, ponnillcrlj cross-lying the horses in 7 ft. wide passageway. A A' x n' out- side door in back wall adjacent to hay slorage area provided a convenient entry for horse, rid- er and loading hay and oal.s. Another horse owner built two stalls measning These were accessible through dutch doors on the sides. This family extended the garage lo .10' in lenglli to oblam a in' x l.T feed room. Itegnrdlcss of its end use, I his building can help solve many problems. lOach hook is Scud, cash, or money order for One Car (larage Book No lillO or Two Car Carngc Book fto. Wi.1 to Carpentry The ULhbndgo Herald, Box Adol.-vdc St. P.O. Toronto, Ontario. j Toronto Slav Syndicate) 1 warm, airy place to dry, which takes from three to four weeks. If a real high temperature of around 05 to SO degrees F. is used it will take only about a week to ten days. When using the dust, put conns in a paper bag and be careful as this ma- terial is poisonous. After the curing period, remove the rest of the stem, some of the outer husk and the old corm. Dust again and store in a tempera- lure of 40 to 45 degrees F. There are many methods of storing the corms. If you have a successful method, stay wilh it. I have good results by put- ling them in paper bags punch- ed with holes to allow for air circulation. You can also store them in shoe boxes, punching holes in the sides, top and bot- tom. Some people use trays with wire screening on the bot- tom, reinforced wilh thin strips of wood to prevent sagging. When the trays are filled, they are stacked on Lop of each oth- er. By uskig the wire screen- ing, there is good circulation of air. If you grow exhibition glads, do not forget lo label your varieties at the time of digging. Some time around the mid- dle of January, inspect the corms for disease, and also peel off some more of the husk and dust again as before. Remem- ber to wash your hands thor- oughly after using the dust. If, for some reason, the corms should start to sprout before it is planting time, place them in a single layer, base side down to ensure the shoots uill grow straight and strong. It i? possible to grow nire glads from Ihc little bulblels growing around Ihc mother plant, but it takes approxi- mately three years lo reach flowering size. These are treat- ed the same as Ihc larger conns. I would appreciate hearing from you the Headers if you would like to see an article written on a subject of your choice. This could prove lo lie quite interesting. Mrs. We art- taking out one of our flower beds in the back yard and arc going to grass Ihis in. Is il loo lair, lo sow the grass seed at this time? Ans. Some do seed new lawns at this time of year, but I personally would not rec- ommend il. Seed sown at this time of the year will give dis- appointing results and lucre will probably have lo be u lot of palching done in Ihc spring.

You may damage it. If you can get it slightly open and (here is room in the drawer, place a lighted electric hull) on the end of an extension cord inside Ihc drawer. Make sure there is nothing burnable near the bulb. A few hours of this treatment and (he heat should shrink the wood enough lo get the drawer open. Then sand lightly and apply lubrication. If you can't get a bulb in or if Ihis treatment doesn't get re- sults, remove the back of the piece of furniture. 'Hie back of a bureau is generally held en with screws or small nails. With the back ofl you might be able to maneuver the draw- er and open it or at least get a light bulb in from the back side. Prevention is better than a cure. Prevent swelling of wood in Ihe future by giving the wood a coat of shellac. Then they'll not absorb moisture. Drawers also will fail to open because of loosened joints, Look out for these and repair [hem at the first opportunity. Examine the drawer for joints that are coming imglucd, for loose nails and for a bottom that has slipped oul of its groove. Remove nails. Clean off all the old glue. RcgSue and use a slightly larger nail. Do not glue the bottom of the drawer in place. Tins must be left free to expand and contract. Drawers will open easier i f pulls arc kept tight. Loose pulls also mar the surface of (he fur- niture. Keep nuts and blots tight. If there are not enough threads on the bolt to tighten the nut any further, add wash- ers. It the drawer is held on wilh a wood screw and is starling to wobble, use a larger screw or fill the hole writh plastic wood and make a fresh hole. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)
