While carrots are definitely a health food, ranking second only to the tomato in the quantity or vita- mins they are likely to contribute to the family diet. when grown in your Victory garden and served young and garden fresh, they are one of the garden's most delightful treats. Thinning out can be left until.the young roots are finger size, and these are so sweet and tender, they seem like another vegetable. Trav- elers who visited Paris before the war tell of such carrots, as one of their cherished memories. But here, it seems, only home garden- ers can have them, as they do not keep well enough to market. Sow the seed thinly. three or four to the inch, in. a shallow drill. Be- cause they germinate slowly, mix in a few pinches of radish seed, be- cause the radishes will come quick- ly and mark the row, so you may avoxd disturbing it in cultivation.

Not the least of its com- ,forts were the low footstools to be used with the most frequented I chairs. These were covered with I bright carpet or other heavy mater- ial and ,if you examined them, you found that inside there were cans filled with sand for weight and then bound together and padded. Such a stool cost not a cent. Nor did it require any carpenter work. Mother or the girls could put one together in no time from things on hand and there it was ready for i years of service. You can do the same. The diagrams in this sketch show exactly how to go about it NOTE: This footstool is from BOOK 3 of the series offered with these articles. This book also con- , tains more than thirty other things to make for your home from odds and ends plus inexpensive new ma- terials.
