Strawberries In almost continuous
upply I'rniii early summer until
frost occurs art- now a possibility for
truckers and home gardeners In the
Northern Stated. "Everbearing"
varieties developed by growers In re
vent years from long-fruiting plants
of short reason types and from hy
brids havo passed a successful trial
period, and now recommended by
specialists of the United States De
partment of Agriculture for planting.
The best varieties and culture prac
tices somewhut different from the
culture of common strawberries
are described In a publication which
haH Just appeared from the Depart
ment of Agriculture, Farmers' Ilul-
letln 001, "Kverbcarlng Strawber
ries." Iteslstiint to IHsra-c
llesldes their long fruiting stason,
some of the new varieties are very
hardy and resistant to disease. The
southern boundury of the territory
in which the everbeurlng types can
lie grown most successfully Is de.icrl
bed by the specialists as the northern
part-t of Virginia, Kentucky, Arkan
sas, and Kansas. South of these Urn
Its points may be found where they
will grow with some degree of suc
cess, it is said, but they are not defi
nitely known to thrive there.
The two leading varieties of
the everbearing types are the
Progressive and the Suberb. The
progressive has been found to with
stand the winters of the Middle West
better than most other varieties ex
cept the Dunlup, one of its parents.
The Superb also Is hardier than most
of hogs especially declined, due to
the fact that the heavy feeders have
been practically exhausted and the
lighter animals are being pushed
onto the market.
At a meeting of food administra
tors of a number of states recently
was the unanimous decision, after
surveying the situation carefully,
that a concerted effort must be made
to Increase the breeding hogs and
cattle, and each state represented In
the conference was given Its per cent
of Increase to be attained.
But It Is right at this point that
the difficulty Is encountered. The
high prices have not only caused tho
immature animals to be sacrificed
hut thousands of valuable females
have also been slaughtered which
should have been kept on tho farms.
There Is not a particle of doubt that
the country Is alarmingly short of
There Is but one remedy. No
owner of hogs or cattle should sell
or kill females capable of reproiluc
lug their kind. This should be made
an Iron-clad rule on the farms and
randies of this country for some
time to come. Certain It is that If
the past, or even the present rate
of consumption of females Is con
tinued for another twelve months,
the country will face something lit
