' Many of our deciduous shrubs
and plants may be easily propagat
ed by means of hardwood cuttings..
Examples are spirea, crape myrtle,
forsythia, ; jasmine, figs, bunch
grapes, privet, gooseberries,, cur
rants, and many others. - .
This is a good time of the year
to make deciduous cuttings. Good,
strong wood of last summer's
growth is (best . for this purpose.
The cuttings may be made in leng
ths of eight to ten inches and tied
in bundles of ,25 to 50 cuttings.
If you have access to cool storage
(38 to 40 degrees) the cuttings may
be stored in boxes of moistened
peat or sand. Otherwise, they may
be buried In a mound of sand or
sandy soil out-of-doors where they
can be shielded from the sun's
rays. Before growth starts )n
soring, the cuttings must be taken
up and planted in rows or beds for
rooting. - . ,,
About two-thirds of the base. or

be inserted below the surface of

ANSWER: ! If you do not have
any control over the manufactur

to prevent sugar crystallization is
to mix a little water with the mol
lasses .according to George H. Wise,
head of the animal nutrition sec
tion, department of animal Industry
at W. C. Bute College.
Wise points out that sugar for

when too. much water has been

ing the cuttings over winter in bun

they are cut from the plant. Us

gives a higher percentage of root

Although bunch grapes are eas
ily propagated by means of hard
wood cuttings, this is not true of
most varieties of muscadines. . The
scuppernong is' especially difficult
to root Jn this manner For these
it is better to .layer the vines
that is, to cover a young vine with
a shovelful of earth while it is
still-attached to the parent plant.
In one growing season roots will
usually form and the new plant may
be detached from the, parent and
moved to the desired location.
Dipping the basal end of the cut
ting in rootone powder just be
fore planting out in the nursery
row or coldframe will often cause
Quicker rooting and a better set
of roots. Rootone may be obtained

crystallization, but the thickness

way of determining the extent of

or from the dilution, spoilage may

-El Camlno' Real-4he Royal Highway stretAes from San Diego
to Sonoma, The old road is now approximately the same as U. S.
Route 101 travelled by thousands of. cars daily. ? The first man
to travel this road and it was not 'a road then but a trail an
much of it fraught with danger was Don Caspar De Portola, the
first governor of California. The road linked the twenty one
missions established by the padres and later confiscated by the
Spanish, government and most of them were founded by Fray1.
Junlpero Serro-who lies burled at Mission San Carlos Bor
remeo en Carmel. Many of the other missions are better known,
the ruined San Juan Capistrano, the splendidly preserved mission
at Santa Barbara, the restored one at San Gabriel. ; But none . ,
has the setting of Carmel where sleep Father Serra and his faithful
padres who did so much, to found the missions of California..
IK commands one of the most beautiful views in all the state, on a
little knoll -overlooking the river, within sound of the booming ;
surf as it crashes against Point Lobos, and sheltering mountains
to the north, 1 east and south. The water is bluer here, the break
ing surf whiter and the agless cypress and pines greener than
any place along the coaste z:'-''!:!?' 'M-tH-J'Vfli
' With all Us splendid history, there are, shameful and bloody
chapters along El Camlno Real. The Indians were far worse than
slaves of the missions if they attempted to .escape they were
dragged back and whipped into submission. C ftW s S v;
It is no wonder that most of the, missions were very wealthy
so wealthy that the Spanish government became envious and
took them away from the control of the Church. One of the
first eyewitness accounts was written by Jean Francoise de la
Perouse who came to Monterey in 1766. . He was In port only "
ten days and introduced the potato to California. He wrote:
The Indian population of San Carlos consisted of seven hun- '
dred and forty persons of both sexes, Including children. They
live in a miserable condition, worse than the animals. The mom-,
ent an Indian allows himself to be baptised that moment he re- -lidqfuished
every, particle of liberty, and subjected himself, body
and soul, to a tyranny from which there was no escape. His spirit
was entirely broken, and the Indians are driven to their work like
cattle.' ft-- v. ;:'.v. &f,'
, It is interesting to note the consequences of the so-called sal
vation of the Indians under MIssIonizatlon. From a total of 30,000
In 1769, the number of . Indians toSouthem California declined
to approximately 1,250 by 1910. The seeds of this decline were
sown by the Franciscans. So far as the poor Indian was concerned
contact with the missions meant death.
; , If you have a highway, you'll have highwaymen.' There were J
several famous, or Infamous ones who operated .along the Royal
Highway in the period following the gold rush. All three were
Mexicans and all three hated Americans. The most romantic, one .
the man whose name struck terror in the hearts of the people up '
and down El Camlno Real was Joaquin Murrleta. The details of "
his career are lurid and legendary, but it is known that he was ,
born in Mexico, and came to California with .his very attractive '
young wife named .Carmen in 1849. He was an excellent shot, ,
skillful with a lariat, was a superb knife thrower and a supreme
horseman. f. A-.-.. t;; v'i:;,.';;,,::''', .
f At first he operated alone. He haxl a devilishly cool manner
and a highly dramatic ability he disguised himseld as laborer, .
a priest a cowhand or even a woman. He waited in ambush for
a solitary traveler, then he, would lasso him, cut his throat and:,
ride away with whatever wealth the victim possessed. Soon he
became a leader of a gang, as evil a bunch of tough bombres as
any In criminal history. His most dependable killer was a beetle-1
browed, pock-marked sadistic hall-breed called Three Fingered J.
(Jack. e. -';..:V. ;!;',.-,a ; v iil-v---' U j--
Burrleta was evidently a man of great daring and courage
and would play cards for hours in a public saloon, defying the
danger of recognition. If his, name happened to be mentioned
in a derogatory way, ha would upset the table, scatter the cards
and draw a gun saying, "Be more careful of your words, senoraC
for I am Joaquin Murrleta,. Than he would light a cigarette and '
calmly walk out the door. for all tola romantic tradition, the end '
of Murietta and his chief Heuteoant was grisly enough. He was
eventually captured ,after"a seWom-equalled career of rape1 and
arson robbery and murder by Captain Harry Love and Us rangers
and bis head was cut off so the rangers could claim the reward .
