Tho old way of picking apples in a sack
is not tho liest. A basket is preferable,
and a hook of some kind should ho fnst

of both hands. .
An acre of land will produce five or six
times as many strawberries, in bushels,

Here of strawberries will bring as much

cost of growing tho strawberries is pro
portionately but little more than that of

Tho tatter the nropiirution of the soil
the less seed will lie required. Many
failures in the seed are not duo so much
to the vitality in the seed us to the un
favorable condition of the ground. It is
always a matter of chance germination
when seed is brcud-caHted and left to hn
covered by the washing of the rain, and
tho harder ami firmer the seed-lied the
greater the difficulty in securing a crop
from the seed. Pulverize the soil, har
row it down a flue as poesi ble and then
brush the seed in.
The tast grasses are flow naturally
adapted to the soil. In America alxiut
one dozen varieties an made sjiecialtica,
while in England the farmers select from

grass should never lie turned under to
make room for some other kind until the
new grass has Is-en tested on the farm.
Soils vary, and grass that may thrive on

The sulphuric acid employed in dis

convert them immediately into plant
food. Bearing these facts well in mind,
and having the guarantee of the manu
facturer that the article is made of raw

ployed in dissolving; that it in riot made

tatter for farmers to use strictly pure dis

The Rural is asked1 if it will pay to
arrange pipes that will. carry water from
a tank filled - with water by a wind
mill, so as to supply water for small
fruits. The same correspondent also
asks if the pines lijtyht not run under
ground with ml vantaxe. We are unable'
to answer the questions, and wo doubt ii
unylKidy can answer them definitely.
Even if some such, system worked well
with one man and we believe thero is
one fruit grower who has udopted some
such system of irrigationlie could
hardly say whether it would pay another
man or not. It is certainly very desira
ble to have water for both fruit and veg
etables. Not to havo it is to lose tho
crop in some cases. To have it artificial
ly supplied is to save tho crop very often.
We think there is no way lor anybody
to settle the question of profit, but to sit
down and give the subject his own close
study. In regard to furnishing the water
from nipes buried in the ground, there
would unquestionably be some advan
tage over supplying it to the surface. In
deed, it is the proper way to do it. It
wonld require less wafer and the soil
would not be iu danger of baking for in
stance. 'In that case, however, thero
would need.be a subsoil, of course, of
such character as would prevent the
water from going down to China as fast
as it came from the pipes. Ujkju a small
sealo such irrigation might perhaps be
practiced to advantage, but when it
comes to a largo scale wo do not know,
and if it can be mado practical for fruit
and vegetables on a large scale, then why
not defy drouth by extending the system
to all crops? It is an interesting sub
ject, but its treatment must be largely
theoretical at present,
"It seems to rue," remarked one of our
citizens the other day, "that physicians
uro allowed extraordinary lieenso in the
manner in which they jugglo with the
welfare of their patients."
"Now hero is Dr. who was attend

he died It was itHccrtiiiimd that disease of
the kidneys was the real trouble, and that

I feel a little out of sorts I take a few

"One tiling is certain, however, and
