Danger from frost ucoms almost ovo
for orchards. Tlio trees lmvo generally
leaved out so woll that the foliage can
protect tbo fruit. It is not tho frost tliat
kills the fruit but tho melting of tho
frost by tho ran docs tho injury. If the
sun strikos tho young gorm whon it is
frost bitten the effect is to destroy it,
wliercrto, if n fog Comes and tho frost
molts without tho sun on it, no harm is
done. Tlio shelter of gieen leaves nlfeo
is a protection. Tlio leaf is now so well
grown that it will keep tho sun horn the
fruit and wo ncod hardly expect harm to
como after this dato, May 10. So fur as
we have boon able to obscrvo there is a
wonderful prospect for a yield of fruit.
Already cherries aro larger than peas,
plums and prunes are well set and pears
have quite a showing. Tho danger
seems to bo that fruit will sot too thick.
May is said to bo a good timo to work in
orchards, prune and thinning tho wood
and balancing tho tree well. A roircct
eye can put a tree in such perfect pro
portions that it will bo urn sliapo or
round headed as you nlcaso and as the
nnturo of tho tico is inclined. It is now
too lato to set out trees but not too late
to tall: tho matter over. It beoms as if
tbeic was ovciy indueeniPtit for thoo
who havo a talent that way to engage in
fruit fanning. Wo havo ilcnty of
ovidonco that it can bo mado piofitablo.
OHIONS AS A CROP.
It is not too lato as yet to plant onions
and wo call consideration to tbo valuo of
onions as a ciOp for the farm, a crop that
will not reqniro much land to pay a largo
icturn if it succoeds well. Tho onion
grown for a lcgular cropcomos from tbo
seed. Tbo ccinnion onion set is meiely
used to giow young and oarly onions in
market gardens. Wo remember ovor
forty years ago spending a seasop in an
onion iiold in Connecticut, where a well
manured and well cultivated aero ofland
would produco a thoutand bushels. Tlio
land wils highly cultivated, highly man
ured, made lino as fcoil could become.
Tho seed was sown in drills and tho
wowliiiff nml thinning out ilonocmofully
by hand as wo crawled longtlnviso along
and btraddling tlio lows, with an old case
knife in hand, heated to take out tho
temper and bent f-o as to mako a sharp
hook to cut out tho needs and surplus
onions. It may bo tliatthero aro bet tor
ways of needing onions now but
half a doon of us used to woik that
onion field for a week at n timo. If land
is woll manured it will produco onioiiB
many years in buccession and it is said
to improve with cultivation. Tho crop
dopoiula on the amount of manura used.
Wo havo barn-yard manuro and to ink
with it tbo scrapings of tho hen houso
and hog pon will mako a very good fer
tilizer. Four hundrod hushols to tho
aero is produced with ordinary caro, but
heavy manuring carries tho yield up to
800 or 1,000 bushels. Guano, bono dust
and wood ashes am recommended. It is
probably possible to got guano, but liono
dust is now manufactured at East Port
land and ovory family can savo wood
ashes. If a compost was mado of com
mon Btablo manuro, lion and hog man
uro, with 8O1U0 good soil to absorb and
prcRervo tho ingredients, and a mixture.
of wood ashes and bono dust was ndtlod
tho samo ovon distributed whon thor
oughly mixed and decomposed, it would
bo likely to bring a good crop. Onions
usually bring a, fair prico, averaging a
dollar a bushel, and it would scorn possi
ble for us to produco them to good ad
vantage and considerable profit. The
demand will increase as population in
creases and wo ought to ceuso bringing
them from California, It is timo wo
raitod all our own vegetables and prac
ticed mixed funning to a greater extont.
Tho fact that to grow onions requires
lots of work and t)io genuine Oregonian
is not fond of doing exactly that lalor.
Tho ivbult will lo Ohineso vill soon got
out of other work and will rent laud and
grow guidons to supply tho homo de
mand and mako tho profit thore is iu it.
Boys can do tho work in an onion Hold,
after it is planted, and planting is easy,
boing done with n email machine that
is drawn by haud. There uro many old
beaver dams in this valley that if well
cleared and cultivated will produce enor
mous onions without much manure,
though a little manure will warm up tho
oil and mako it better.
A correspondent of tho Huhbandman
ayH as follows concerning onion cul
ture: A Held iu Ithodo latum! is said to have
Drodiiccd onions for soventy consecutive
years, and one lit Scotland claims to hae
Pevweti UK centennial year
of constant I
onion growinj;, nd it i uld that neither
of those pieces bIiow any ill effects from
this long continued cropping. As weeds
aro tbo chief enemy of this crop, it is not
policy to chango tho ground oftcner
than is necessary. Any good farm land,
properly manured, will produce a good
crop of onions. Hog manuro is consid
ered preferable to that from other ani
mals, but almost any kind ia good, pro
vided it is thoroughly decomposed.
Guano, bono dust, and wood ashes arc
excellent. It is customory U apply, sta
ble manu'c, or compost to tbo soil either
beforo or immediately after plowing, and
then uso tho commercial fertilizers or
ashes as a top-drcsing at the time of
sowing tho seed. The surface should bo
mado as mellow and as smooth as the
harrow and roller can make it, It
is verv ininortant that tho seed bo
mrrn no nnnlif no M.aolllln in tllf OriTtfifF .
T.nr nrn-ora non n onpninl nifinhiiin

If the land is rich

lent hand cultivators aro now made with
tho help of which a careful man can do
almost tho work of weeding. By means
of levers operated by tho hand, a sharp
blado is run along each side of tho row at
tho time, and with a careful man to
oporalo tho tool, only a fow weeds aro
left to bo nulled by Hand, w ncn tno
tons fall down tbo cror is ready to har
vest. Tho bulbs should be pulled at
once, as if allowed to remain during a
hot and wet timo, a portion of tlicmmay
sttu t to grow again, winch will injure
their keeping. Some growers pull the
bulbs and allow them to remain on tho
ground. about two weeks to dry. Others
pilo thorn in boaps after they have lain
a day or two, leaving them in this con
dition a fortnight, after which they aro
again spread out for a day or two, when
thoy aro ready for storing. An excellent
method is to pieparo bins having a bot
tom sufficiently open to admit tho pas
sago of plenty of air through it, and
raised a few inches abovo tho ground. It
is better to storo them in rather thin
layers, but in a cool and woll ventilated
placo, they may bo piled three or four
feet deep without damage. Moderate
freezing does not injure tho bulbs, pro
vided they do not freeze and thaw often,
and aic nover handled while frozen.
Kilitor Willamette Farmer :
With your good will I will say a few
words of some of our now strawberries.
Hero let mo say it is much to be regret
ted that to many now and untested
kinds aro thrown upon the credulous
peoplo ; for, it seems, as Uarnum Bays,
"pcoplo lovo to bo humbugged, and aro
willing to pay for it, too." If this is
trno it exhibits in a rcmarkablo degieo
tho status of our intelligence. "Love to
bo humbugged I" Buy eomo now thing
becnuso it is puffed, praised and petted
all over with slobber and stuffing. Tell
a man something new out of which ho
can mako monoy and ho will go deep
down into his pockot for tbo last "red"
and pay for it fieely. A lust for monoy
is at tho bottom of this, both in tho tra
ducer and traduced. Out of tho immense
number of now strawberries vory few
havo proved worthy. How many ber
ries, to-day, that aro better than tho old
Hovoy's Seedling! How many aro bet
ter than tho old Wilson? That thoro
has been. improvement in strawborrios is
true ; that wo havo nioro good strawber
ries than wo bad some years ago is vory
true. But what I complain of is thero
are to many now and untried kinds sent
out with a great flourish that they are
"better, hardier, more productive, more
vigorous in plant, tho best on earth, tho
best in tho world," to., etc., and yet
when "triod aro found wanting." "With
in tho last quarter of a century I, have
bought, nt a high prico, over forty new
kinds, and thirty-flvo of these I have
plowed under as poor, or having some
bad qualities. Tho Wilson, Jucunda
and Sharplcss I still retain. I am now
testing twenty-three kinds, bought at
a high prico per dozen from one to
two dollars a dozen. Will I got half a
dozen worthy T If I get three really
good ones I will be in luck, and consider
my3olf amply paid for my trouble
I fear I shall havo to in our damp,
cool springs discanl all pistillate vane-
tic; I had to discard the-old Hovoy's
Seedling becauso it did not bear well, it
being a pistillate. Ool. Cheney, Park
Boanty, Crescent, Big Bob, Jersey Green,
Daniel Boono, Windsor Chief, Green
Prolific, Golden Dcflanco and Manches
ter, are all pistillate varieties, and whon
pistilized aro among the best strawber
ries we Jiavo. liut hero with mo nt
least thoy do not do as well as hernia-
phrodito kinds. I am giving them n
good trial, and if they prove a failure,
away they go. In California, too, "the
pistillate do no good." East of tho

Lincoln, Prince of Berries, Atlantic,
Jumbo, or "Latest of All," and some oth
ers of loss note. Tho last three I have
great hopes of.
Listen to what Durand says of his
new borry, the Princo of Berries : ''Su
perior to any borry known in Jlavor or
quality, possessing in a greatpr dogroe
than tho wild borry itself that peculiar
aroma for which it is so celebrated. Bril
liant and beautiful in color, abundant in
bearing, large size, texture exceeding
fine and melting, no hard or unripo
spots or tips, coloring evenly and per
fectly, unsurpassed as a carrier and
invariably perfecting its largo crop of
fruit, desirablo in form, perfect in bios
som. nover realds either in foliage or
ff rait, lemains a long timo on the vino
, wjth0ut injury, a superb plant, and a le
liable fertilizer of all pistillate vario-
Whow! Hurrah for Dm and and his
Prince of Berries. What more do wo
want in a borry? The other two, I wont
give thoir description as it would rob us
of all the descriptive words in our lan
guage. The Atlantic is Eaid to bo tho
best market berry, tho Jumbo, "The La
