SMALL fruit cun be grown almost
as easily as corn or outs If It
Is gone at In the right way.
A liberal quantity grown at
home Is a luxury that Is within the
reach of every farmer. Grown on a
larger scale, the suiull fruits are
among the most prolltable crops that
tho farm will produce.
The best liked and most widely dis
tributed siuiill fruit Is the strawberry.
The best soil for the strawberry bed
Is a sandy loam. Strawberries do bet
ter on light soils, and the berries are
larger and of better quality. If yon
have no light soil that can be used
for the strawberry bed you 'Jin greatly

lowing, with thorough dlsk-
in. 'arrowing, Is necessary In or

dition. Strawberries should follow
some cultivated crop which has been
kept free from weeds. It will then
be easier to prepare the seed bed, and
the patch will lie freer from weeds mid
Insects. Strawberries nre particular
In their soil requirements, and n little
fart; In preparation will add grently
to the size of the crop. Too little at
tention Is given to this most Important
requisite. Many persons do not seem
to lo aware that the strawberry Is at
all particular about the soil In which
It Is put. As a consequence they pre
pare their beds without uny reforc.o

Varieties of Strawberries.
Varieties of strawberries are divided
into two general types the perfect and
the imperfect (lowered. The Imperfect
contain only the female organs or pis
tils, while the perfect sorts contain
both stamens and pistils. The Imper
fect varieties can produce uo fruit un
less fertilized with the pollen from the
flower of u perfect variety. It Is very
Important that attention be paid to
this point in planting. Many of the
Imperfect sorts possess points of supe
riority over the erfect varieties. They
cau be successfully grown by plant lug
every fifth row to a perfect flowered
variety. This row will furnish pollen
for the two rows ou either side of It.
In setting out a bed in this wny care
must be taken to see that the two va
rieties come Into bloom at the same
Perfect and Imperfect varieties can
not be told apart except when In
bloom. Then the absence of the row
of pistils nround the petals marks the
Imperfect sorts. Lists of varieties of
strawberries always specify whether
they are perfect or Imperfect. A reli
able nurseryman con be depended upou
to give you what you ask for. A list
of the varieties best adapted to your
locality can be obtained from jour ex
Tho strawberry Is propagated almost
entirely by runners. At each joint In
the runner a new plant appears and
takes root. Only plants less than a
year old should be selected for plant
ing. The crown should not be too
large and the roots thick and long.
The presence of large woody roots
and a heavy crown Indicates that the
plant Is on old one. If there are many
leaves it 1 well to pinch off one or
two of the largest to correspond to
the Injury to the root system.
Spring planting Is the most reliable,
but where the fall Is moist or the
patch can be readily watered fall plant
ing gives very good results. The two
Important points In planting are
spreading the roots and packing the
dirt tightly about them. The plants
should be set so the crowns are Just
level with the surface of the ground
Hills Versus Matted Rowt.
Strawberries are grown both In hills
and In rows. In the hill system the
plants me set about three feet npnrt
The runners are cut off In order to
umke a compact, vigorous hill. The
size and quality of the berries nre bet

In cold climates the strawberries
must be given some sort of winter
protection. The object of this Is not so
much to prevent freezing as to keep
the ground from that alternate freez
ing and thawing which cause heaving
of the plants. . mulch of coars horse
manure applied after the ground fieexo;
Is excellent for this purpose, as It odtls
fertility at the same time. Iu the
spring the straw can be raked up and
removed. One necessary precaution Is
to be sure that the manure Is free
from weed seeds. I have seen straw
berry beds ruined because the mulch
contained timothy hay In which the
seeds were ripe enough to grow.
Raspberries and DlacUborries.
Next to strawberries In Importance
are rauplterrl s and blackberries. The
best soil for blackberries Is about like
thet for strawberries, while for wi
berries It may lie a little heavier. The
two kinds of raspberries most exten
sively grown In this country are red
and black. The red raspberry Is propa
gated by shoots which grow up from
the roots. One-year-eld shoots are
preferable for planting. The rows
should be at least four feet apart, with
the plants two feet apart In the row.
Frequent nnd thorough cultivation Is
necessary to keep down the suckers
which grow up from the roots. It is a
good plan to plow the ground between
the rows every spring.
P.Jack raspberries do not send up root
shoots. They nre propagated Iiy bury
ing the tips of the shoots in the ground
some time In August. These take root
nrd produce new plants, which ran ho
transplanted the following sprhg. Th-
black raspberries are more rank In
their habits of growth and should !;
planted farther apart than the red va
rieties. Planting every three feet in
rows seven to eight feet apart Is a
good distance. They should receive
thorowh cultivation In the mu;o mea
ner as the red sorts.
The application of n coat f rvmnre
between the rows in the fall will ma
terially Increase the yield of all small
fruits. Pruning Is also Important,
r.lackberry and raspberry shoots hour
but once, so In the spring all those
which produced fruit th season be
fore should be cut out. Iihn k rasp
berry shoots should have the tip nip
ped off when they are nliout eighteen
Inches high. This causes lateral
branches to form and greatly Incrensos
the yield. The same treatment should
be given to blackberries. After about
four, goal crops of raspberries have
been secured the patch should be plow
ed up and a r.ew one started some
Blackberries ere usually propngutea
by suckers. The distance apart Is
about four feet In the row. with rows
seven feet apart. The proper depth to
: et tho 'plants is about four Inches. It
l-i a common practice to plant a row of
potatoes or some other vegetable be
tween the blackberry rows the tlrst
season. This can also be done with
black raspberries. About four or flv
blackberry shoots arc all that should
be allowed to grow up the first sea
son. After that the number may be
gradually Increased. A well establish
ed blackberry patch will last six or
seven years. The yields that may be
secured depend largely upon tho fro-

vere the best results cannot bo ob-

rles unless some sort of protection Is
given. The simplest method of doing
this Is by bending the canes down
along the row and covering them with
Currants and Gooseberries.
A clayey loam soil, with plenty of
moisture, is, best for currants a ml
gooseberries. They do all the "better
for a little shade and are not so par
tlcuhir about cultivation as the other
small fruits. A heavy mulch of straw
or coarse munure may be used to keep
down the weeds nnd conserve mois
ture and cultivation dispensed with
A few bushes set along a fence row
will furnish enough of this kind of
fruit for the family. They are propa
gated by cuttings, pieces of brunches
which are planted in moist earth,
where they take root. Two-year-old
plants are best for planting. Being
hardier than the other small fruits,
currants and gooseberries will stand
fall planting. Indeed, this Is almost a
necessity, since they start growing al
most us soon ns the ground thaws In
the spring. All weak and old branches
should be cut out early each spring.
Currants nnd gooseberries will continue
to yield profitable crops on the same
ground for a long time.
