TUE SEED END OF POTATOES,
The question whether the seed end of
potatoes should be removed before tho
seed is planted has long been mooted
among potato growers. Most of them
have decided that the seed end should
be removed, or rather that the noiato
should be 6o cut as to give each set one
to three good eyes or buds. If whole
potatoes are planted, manv varieties
having a multitude of seed eyes will
send ont far too many shoots. These
will crowd each other like so many weeds,
and a great amount of verv small pota
toes will be the result. Varieties of po
tatoes that have but few eyes, and espe
cially those that are very strong growers,
will be better with Whole seed. The
crowding in this case increases the num
ber of potatoes, and they will nearly all
grow to remarkable size. If they have
a less number of shoots, the potatoes
will be fewer and grow rough, pronged
and unwieldy in size and Bhape. We
notice that the Wisconsin station has
been experimenting with potatoes with
results that do not agree with
the conclusion of practical Eastern
farmers. It finds that the whole potato
with the seed end left on gave not only
a larger yield of merchantable potatoes,
but a larger yield altogether than the
potato did where the seed end was re
moved. The Early Rose and Snowflake
potatoes were the kinds chosen for the
experiment. The result might have been
more favorable for the cut potato if some
stronger growing varieties had been
chosen to experiment with.
OLD METHODS AND NEW.
Governor Flower in his address at the
Orange county fair urged farmers to rec

old methods to new, to get nway from
the old ideas and ways and to make

growing grain and go to market garden
ing. Said he: "The cultivation of wheat
yields about $15 an acre in New York on
an average, and that of corn about $18
an acre. How much more profit there
is in raising sweet corn for canning pur
poses at $50 an acre, asparagus at $180
an acre, beets at $150, eelerv at $00,
cabbage at $130, watermelons at $80,
muskmelons at $150, peas at $67, sweet
po-atoes at $65, tomatoe at $165, grapes
at $122. peaches at 150, strawberries at
$300. currants at $120 and so on indefi
nitely, or in using for making choice
dairy products, to sell at fancy prices,
breeding good horses or raising poultry,
the consumption of whose products is
increasing faster than the consumption
of wheat or corn, and the value of whose
product in the entire country is greater
than that of the wheat crop."
