Roll call was answered by naming Missouri industries and NOW IS THE TIME TO-- by Mrs, L. A. Evans As I sit by the window and look out on the once blooming flower gardens I think-o the things that must be done. The dead stems of chripathe mums should be cut off and I like to lay them over the plants to help keep the snow from packing. Also I put wood ashes over and around the peonies. This potash gives more strength to the plant and resulting in lovelier flowers. The seed catalogues are com- ing in now and peps up our ambitions for more and new'r varieties of flowers.
