Too much cannot be said of the Natural Rasp
berry. While it is classed as dry berries, it is not
strictly such, being more moist, sweeter and more
like fresh berries. It may be eaten from the hand
like raisins. It makes a sauce as nice as canned
berries. I guarantee one package of berries to
make one gallon sauce if the directions are care
fully followed. You can't make a gallon of sauce
from any other kind of dried fruit nor buy can
ned fruit at that price. Besides it is the richest
and nicest sauce made especially for pies. The
Natural Raspberry is king of piemakers.
In order to introduce this delicious fruit, I am
offering 10 one gallon packages of Natural Rasp
berries by mail postpaid, upon receipt of $2.50.

Causing Great Loss
That there's at least six well de

The experts have devoted their
attention thus far mainly to a
survey to discover the extent and
distribution of potato diseases,
but it is planned in the future to
study each of the six principal
diseases in detail with special ref

Co-operative work is under

potatoes for disease resistance.
The seed for these tests is furn
