To many persons tbe fruit of the
raspberry in the fall Is a luxury, com
ing as it does when no other fruit of
this nature is to be had. There are but
two sorts that have proved of any val
ue of about a half-dozen kinds tried—
tbe Catawissa and tbe Belle de Fon-
tenay. To have these f ¡ill-bearing sorts
produce well they must be cut down in
the spring, so that vigorous young
canes will grow, as from these the crop
of fruit is to come. Tbe stronger the
canes, tbe better the crop of fruit,
hence the importance of applying plen
ty of manure to the ground, and of
keeping up a cultivation of the soil
while the plants are growing. It is not
impossible to have fruit on ordinary
raspberries when treated as these are,
though there is something In the na
ture of the two kinds mentioned which
seems to fit them especially for fall

lawn mower or a scythe. Rake tbe
weeds off and chop out all of the old
plants, leaving runners about a foot
apart in the rows, and hoe between the
plants, as well as cultivate well be

to have the ground deep, soft and per
fectly clean of grass and weeds. The
runners (which should be those sent

Newly Cleared Land.
If any oue wants to know what difll
cutties the early settlers in wooded sec
tions had to encounter, let him make a
clearing iu some wood lot and then try
to grow a crop among the stumps. He
will break more plow points and har
rows working this land than the crop
will be worth when grown. *Btit the
early settlers had at least one advant
age, and that was that their newly
cleared land was free from weeds. In
all the older settleu parts of the coun
try there are many bad weeds among
the trees in the woods, the seeds of
which have been carried there by birds
or other animals.
The animal here shown is a typical

it was recognized as a valuable beef
breed. Records of sales *-om 171*1* to
