. Some Varieties I llioe Tested,
To the Editor: I "am ' ery much
nleaned wilh the Suiiar prune. I have
Rnmn irraftB. top-erafted into Italian 1
trees, which bore some fruit this year.
The wood seems very vigorous and
healthy, and ripens early in the season.
The fruit is large and handsom e, and I
think much better than the Italian for
eating fresh; possibly the skin would
be a little tender for long shipment. It
ripens with me fully ten days in advance
of the Italian. FirBt specimen was fully
ripe this vear August 18, some remained
until September 10 and were in good
condition; they stuck to the tree well
when ripe; perhaps will have to be hand
picked. For drying they sf.era to be an
ideal prune of the beBt quality, very
large, good cola.- and fine shape ; dries
nkaly, mnning from 20 to 25 to the
Wills mette Prune. Of very large size
and good quality, but rather coarse
grained, and with me is very subjected
tn brown rot.
Mcintosh Red Apple. A showy,
height red, fall apple, of very n'cj
Warfield Strawberry. Is still my fa
vorite berry for quality and quantv.
Am trying now Rough Rider, Nick U.
mer and Excelsior; also Kansas and
Cumberland Blackcaps. The Kansas
made a remarkably strong and thrifty
growth. The Cumberland is a strong,
hardvlookimi vine, but not quite as
large a vine as the Kansai.
Early Aristook Bean Is a very large
prolific, white field bean.
Early Freedom Tomato An extra
early, productive, red tomato, of good
quality, medium fzo.
Crimson Cushion Tomato Very large
and meatv. wtll-named "Beefsteak" to
Early Triumph Potato Extra early
medium Bized, round, red, deep-eyed.
Prize taker onion A very large-yellow
onion, of mild flavor and good quality, a
ereat corpper. Does not keep quite as
