"What Garden Have Yen. ?
AmcrJca.i Agriculturist for April.
The best-paying plot 011 every farm,
aud the one yielding the most enjoy
ment, too, is the veuetable garden
"kitchen garden," as it is frequently
called, and quite appropriately, espe
cially when the kitchen folk have the
chief or sole care of it. A good sup
ply of garden products for the table
costs "less than the standard bread,
meat and potatoes, is more healthful
and nourishing than all corn beef and
pork and the small assortment usually
found on the farmer's table. Need
we add anything about palatableness,
comfort, home enjoyment ? Contrast
a table set nearly the year round with
bread, salt pork, corned beef, pota
toes, boiled cabbage, varied with hash,
mush, buckwheats, and occasionally
a few other items, with a table well
supplied in succession and abundantly
with asparagus, green peas, lima beans,
string beans, sweet corn, radishes,
carrots, beets, parsnips, celery, salsify,
turnips, cauliflower, spinach, lettuce,
egg plants, tomatoes (all the year),
rhubarb, okra, squashes, onions, cab
bage, cucumbers and other things
tilled in with currents, strawberries,
raspberries, blackberries, not to men
tion grapes, pears, etc. We do not
accept the standing excuse, "I am too
poor, too hard driven, too much to do
in my fields to bother with the gar
den." We repeat, with emphasis,
tihat every fanner can have most, if
not all, the above pleasant and health
ful variety with less labor and less ex
pense than the table can he supplied
with in any other way. Every day's
work in the garden will produce -several
dollars' worth of good things.
One-quarter of an acre, more or less,
according to the size of the family,
will suffice. Select the best soil
available, as near the house as possi
ble, but at a distance if absolutely
11 ecessary. A good rich 1 oam where wa
ter never stands is desirable. Heavy
clay will not do well without a good
deal of preparation. If not naturally
dry, underdraining is desirable, but
even an open ditch around the plot,
and one or two through it if needed,
may answer for the present. Plow
and harrow tine, working -ra-a liberal
supply of the best welt-rotted manure
that can be obtained half a wagon
load on every square rod will be all
the better, but not much less can be
got along with.
A Card to the Fiskermcn.
Gentlemen: In introducing theFish
ennens Protective Union to your notice
at our last meeting at Liberty hall.
Wednesday evening, April iith. I stated
you would hear more about it during
the sea&on. 1 should like to have said
more to you on the subject, but not hav
ing time to give it due consideration I
thought it best to postpone it to some
Having heard a great many different
versions' on Judge Shattuck's opinion
on the license law, and some of the.u
not very flattering. I take the liberty to
piesentto your notice a different ver
sion to that arrived at by our protest
cmnnittee. I think the Hon. Ex
.ludge has acted in a very impartial
honorable manner. As lie says, the law
is written as we find It; our represen
tatives in the legislature made it: and
the only way out of the difficulty is by
an anpeal to" the legislature to undo its
v.ork. Again he says: 1 could find
rrgumentsantl reasons enough against
7iese laws proper for a legislature to con
sider, but I mu.stsay franld that 1 can
not find argument against these laws
v'mcIi the courts wiil hear or act upon.
Iov w liy the opinion of Judge JShattuck
i as not accepted I must say I cannot

loresls i 111 proses me that he is an "honor
able man. Now the uuly way to grapple
litis thing is .to organize. This thing of
prying a dollar or more is to my think-
ng shere nonsense, I -would say to you
pay your license money under profot,
but keep your protest dollars in your
pocket, until such time as we-ean organize
our Union with responsible men at the
head of it, and then we will know we
are standing on solid ground. Then
and not till then should wj invest one

I have no doubt there are gentlemen in
town we can elect as officers who will
be willing to give us good security for
our money as the union will be a bene
fit to all concerned in the fishing busi
ness as the cannerymen will know then
who takes charge of their gear. I
ihink Saturday May 10th would bean
appropriate time to call a meeting, for
'he purpose of selecting officers, and a
committee to make necessary arrange
ments. 1 should think about seven,
or half-past seven o'clock, at the Court
house, so that it wilt not interfere with
our respective duties. It would not be
necessary to call a general meeting, but
of those who are in the immediate I
cinity. Koi:rt Makhiott.
