When frosts come dahlias can have the sterns cut away and be lifted. Stand clumps of tubers in a shady place out of doors for a few days, covering at night if a frost is feared. Thus exposed to the air the tubers will lose a portion of moisture and be in better condition to keep well in a box or boxes of sand that is nearly dry. Caladiums can be treated in the same ■way. The cellar should be nearly dry are quite frost proof; if damp there ia üanger that the tubers will mold.
