Edwardlones MAKING SENSE OF INVESTING Strawberries do particularly well in hanging baskets. Continued from pg. 1C mixed with rich com- post and topsoil. If your drainage is poor, plant them in raised beds. Another idea is to put them in hanging baskets and strawberry pots. This allows you to move them into shadier and cooler spots as the mercury starts to rise in the summer months. When growing them in pots, use a good soil- less potting mix such as Metro, Sunshine or Miracle -Gro. These offer both nutrients and drainage, so you won't have to mix any else into the soil. Mulching is an- other top priority. If you mulch generously around the plants, you'll help to keep those roots warm in the winter, and cooler in the summer... just the way they like it. Happy Strawberry Gardening everyone! If you mulch generously around the plants, you'll help to keep those roots warm in the winter, and cooler in the summer... just the way they like it.

Continued from pg. 1C continued to strike on the hour until 11 when the hands ceased to move and the works melted. The wind suddenly shifted a little before midnight and blew the firestorm into neighborhoods east of the burned-out business district. At four in the morning, the epic fire was finally put out after 11 hellish hours. The sun rose on smoke-shrouded ruins that looked more like a battlefield than a stricken city. The ferocious fire had burned everything in a funnel-shaped area two miles long and a mile across at the widest point. Two hundred and seventy of the 2,500 incorporated acres were a blackened wasteland with only an occasional wall still stand- ing. The people of Paris could hardly believe their eyes. Gone were the courthouse, post office, city hall, central fire sta- tion, telephone office, sev- eral churches and all but a handful of retail stores. History had repeated it- self in the heart of the city, where the damage had been the worst in 1877. The sole survivors of the second fiery act were the Elks lodge and a furniture company. A grand total of 1,440 structures were destroyed. Five thousand men, women and children- a third of the population- had no place to live. A train rolled into Paris the next day with seven carloads of food, cloth- ing and tents from Dallas, Ennis, Greenville, Bon- ham and other charitable locales throughout North Texas. Telephone and telegraph service was restored, and hundreds waited in long lines to place their allotted two- minute call. After letting worded loved ones know they had lived through the Great Fire of 1916, townspeople relied up their sleeves and went to work. Like a Lone Star phoenix, Paris rose from the ashes one more time. Bartee welcomes your comments and questions at or P.O.
