Ancients Knew Use of Plaster
Plaster for building purposes has
been used for. centuries. Its insu
lating and sanitary properties were
developed by the ancients and its
decorative possibilities furthered by
the Greeks and Romans. King
John of England recognized its fire
resistive qualities after the great
London fire. Sanitary laws in many
states require all habitable rooms
to be lathed and plastered. It in
sulates against cold and drafts as
well as heat. Other materials give

Big and Small
The Coltness hybrid and Uniwiu
dahlias are as easily grown as a
zinnia, coming into bloom early,
even when planted outside in May,
and giving a wealth of single
flowers of fair size in a brilliant
range of colors.
The original Coltness strain has
been greatly improved by selection
so that it is now one of the finest of
bedding annuals and a rival of the
zinnia, the foliage being more re
fined and ornamental. It is also a
very free blooming type. There
are quilled types resembling the
cactus dahlias in the Coltness de
velopment. Uniwin dahlias are tall
er with double flowers and a color
ranse which includes red, pink,
yellow, oranso and lavender.
Even the tall giant-flowerad dahl
ias may bs raised from sead to
blooming siza the same season
without difficulty if the seed is
started early inioor3.

Peculiarities of Tortoise
If animals were historians, tor
toises would be our best informants.
For they outlive all other creatures
and are the most intelligent of rep
tiles, according to a writer in the
Washington Post. The giants of
the South Sea islands generally car
ry on for about 150 years, although
many celebrate their two hundredth
birthdays. They don't need all that
time to get so big, however. They
are fully grown in about 20 years.
Their perfect health and huge size
are the results of diet which in
cludes no meat. Lettuce, celery,
grass, clover are the main items of
their meal and for dessert they go
in heavily for berries.
First in Pier Business
The first company in Ohio in
corporated for the purpose of erect
ing piers v.as the Cleveland Pier
company, born in 1815. It was au
thorized by law to "construct a
pier or harbour, wharves and ware
houses, on the south shore of Lake
Erie, at the village of Cleveland,
for the security and accommoda
tion of ships and vessels, and for the
encouragement of commerce."

All About Squashes
Summer squashes and vegetable
marrows are becoming staple arti
cles of the summer table after a
slow progress towards popularity.
They must be cooked quickly and
lifted and drained before they dis
integrate. Served with butter they
have a delicate flavor and are
much liked when known. Another
excellent way and one which pre
serves the substance of this rather
intangible vegetable is frying in
batter like eggplant, which it much
resembles in delicacy ot flavor.

AMD VEGETABLE MARROW.
The marrows are a variety of
summer squaph growing to huge
size. They may be used when only a
few days old and a few inches long.
Boiled and served with a butter
sauce, they are a revelation in ten
derness and flavor.
The culture is the same as for cu
