GROWING RASPBERRIES IS NOT DIFFICULT

A Splendid Specimen Cluster.
(Py W. H. UNDERWOOD.)
y Tho raspberry can bo cheaply grown;
with proper care and management It
Is as sure a crop as corn. Its period
of ripening covora a greater length of
time than any other small fruit, last
ing from four to five weeks If early,
medium, and late varieties aro grown.
Any soil that will produce 40 to CO
bushels of corn to the acre is suffi
ciently rich for raspbeirles. The
most essential point Is to secure a
line, well-pulverized soil, In which tho
roots can grow below the effects of dry
Tho more there aro of the- fine, or
working roots to each plant, tho larg
er tho growth, and tho hotter will bo
tho crop. As these roots, require a
loose soil In which to work, It Is never
best to plant on ground that cannot
be thoroughly pulverized.
Plow tho soil for a depth of about
six Inches, harrow it well and then
level It down smoothly with a roller.
Then mark it out by stretching a line
whore tho row Is to bo made, making
tho rows eight feet apart.
Dig wedge-shaped holes with a long
narrow spade, by inserting It-in a po
sition about eight Inches from the line
In such a position that tho point will
reach almost under the line, then with
draw it without romoving any of tho
soil, again inserting It at the lino near
ly perpendicular, so that tho point will
reach tho same placo reached the first
timo, removing tho soil between the
two cuts, as yqu withdraw the spade,
making tho holes ?i feet apart.
Before they dry out set tho plants,
holding them against tho sldo of the
bole where the line is with tho left
hand, and draw tho mellow soil in with
tho right, pressing it firmly.
Use only flrst-clasB tlp3, covering tho
roots three or four inches deep, which
prevents tho bushes from being blown
over by heavy winds. I am confident
that more failures aro due to tho lack
of cultivation, than to any other cause.
If the best results to be attained are
desired, a row of corn, potatoes, or
some garden crop Bhould bo grown in
every space between tho rows the first
year, and the patch cultivated every
week or ten days, from tho time they
are planted until tho first of August.
After tho first year they should bo
cultivated five or six times each sea
son. I use only a five-toothed cultiva
tor and horse-hoe in cultivating. For
largo bushes the handlo of tho culti
vator can bo set over one side, thus
Blackberries Trained to a Ten-Foot
enabling the shovels to run as near
bushes as necessary. I enrich the
ground from timo to time, as tho good
of tho bushes requires.
When tho young plants are about
four inches high, thin out to one cane
In each hill. When tho cane Is about
12 incheB high, I pinch out tho bud.
This can be done with tho thumb and
linger, and will cause the plants to
throw out laterals.
After pinching out tho bud, do no
more trimming until the next spring.
Then cut the laterals back to about
eight Inches in length.
HINTS PICKED UP

Set Trees Trifle Deeper Than

Avoid All Air Spaces.
(Dy U M. BENNINGTO'N.)
In transplanting your trees set them
the same depth, or a trifle deeper
than they stood in tho nursery row.
Sun-scald Is death to trees. Valu
able young trees can be protected by
a cylinder of heavy paper; not much
trouble and it pays.
Of course, you will spray your trees
at least once, and perhaps twice this
spring, but how about your neighbor
who sprays not at all? How can you
protect yourself against tho pests thnt
aro driven from his orchard into
Applo trees that have been long neg
lected should not bo pruned too se
verely the first season. Too much sun
on branches that have always been
shaded will Injure them.
It Is not necessary to slash away at
your trees every year. Prune Just
enough to keep them In shape and
prevent useless sprouts from sapping
tho treo'B strongth.
Never chop off a limb that is more
than one inch thick. Use a saw. Al
ways leave a smooth surfaco on tho
It is all right to cultivate some low
growing crops between young trees.
Early potatoes and early cabbage
would do woll for this sort of work.
When theso are out of the way sow
clover as a cover crop for winter and
turn it under in the spring.

Of all the fruits which aro so boun

"scarcely a mouthful;"

"Fragarln," bocauBo of
Its exqulslto perfume; poets have sung

nnd at banquets under the shadow
of tho Acropolis It held tho placo of

Saxon who took tho poetry all out
of the beautiful name of Fragarla and
hamed it strawberry, because of tho
custom of placing straw under tho
vines to raise tho berries from tho

Tho Looce-Novlllo Starting and Lighting Soparato

This system is dusj-proof and has provon itsolf 100 effi

Whllo tho electrio gear shift ia a great invention, it la
