After Slftmg t hrough a piece of screen wire, the larger pieces may be used. for the tracks and the dust and fmer par ticles for making the roads and highways. The results are surpris ing." George B. Hill, 1615 Shelby Ave., Nashville, Tenn. PLASTER F O R LAN DSCAPING " I have noticed in your magazine that some of the boys are having trouble with plaster cracking when it is used for lanrJ,,aping . In place of plaster, I use lastic Pa nt which can be procured m any pamt store and does not crack after drying like plaster because it does not shrink. This shrinkage is what is giving these boys their trouble. You can pass this along if you care to." R. A . Gollings, Akron, Ohio.
