What to Do With the Ston69.
We have n.11 liea r J the oM witticism
about the farmers of New Hampshire
being compelled to plant corn with a
rifle on account of the superabundance
of stones. There are many farms,
and good ones too, in these United
States, on which, if the stones are not
quite so abounding as that, they are
nevertheless so thickly distributed as
to be a real nuisance. And the worst
of it is, the number in the fields seem
to be just as createvpry year, no mat
ter how thoroughly they were gather
el up the previous season.
We once knew a good old Baptist
deacon, who sturdily insisted that
Btones grow. "I know they do," he
would say, "because after I've cleaned
'em all out of my garden one year,
there's just as many there next year,
an' more, too," We won't quarrel
with the deacon's logic; it's as good as
many a more fccientific thenrv thnt
has had itB day and departed. The
met remains mat me supply of stones
on many farms is apparently inex
haustible; and what to do with them
is a serious problem.
There is a limit to piling them on
top of the ground, either in the form
of stone wa'l or cf big mounds, like a
Biblical monument. Stone fences are
a pood deal of a nuisance tliemsolvps.
Unless laid in cement which would be
rather too expensive for the ordinary
farmer they become harbors for un
desirable "small deer" of various
sorts, and through them and longside

this seems to be the readiest,
way to dispose of a, vast quanity of
loose stone picked from cultivated
Another plan is to bury them in
drains which is a useful method, but
lil cviso limited. They may also be
utilized in filling up swampy spots;
and some wet holes will absorb an
immense lot, especially if, as is desir
able, the valuable muck is first
removed and composted for fertiliz
A good deal of stone might be made
ase of, with the aid of a neighborhood
stone breaker, in improving the con
dition c ' ho roads. In stony locali
ties, it ife -lie, there are apt o be
more sto. s in the road UAn are
wanted a ;ady; but there are almost
always stretches of low-lying road
that need improvement, Wolle a
smooth roadway of broken stone is
I't-tte everywhere than one made up
These are some of the ways in which I
atones may be disposed ot. And yet,
when all is done, in stony regions they
ore apt, like the poor, ''always with
ns," a problem as unsolved and un
solvable as the origin of evii.
The story comes from El Dorado
County, Cal., of the discovery of a
hw and uncommonly delicious variety
1 er ry. It was found severai
-i :,i i j a wild state, some 3,600
m sea level on tho Sierra
ul;i Mountains. The plant yield
,p! d -i ntly berries of medium size
juisite flavor, and the finder
!'.h d that he had lighted upon a
c i)i e'ry bonanza.
Is ;i transplanted a few plants
r 1 J 9 thfm thorough tri&l. The
vsults were so satisfactory that lie
ol .-lined three hundred more, and
unbse.piently enlarged his patch t a
total of 3,000 plants.
This wild mountain berry is a per
fect liowering variety. It h is proud
to be all that it promis.. 1 in its wild
state as an abundant yi-.ider, and the
berries are described as exceedingly
sweet; juicy, aromatic and delicious,
melting in the mouth without leaving
a particle of hard core, and as filling
the ahnospherearoundthepatch with
a, deligntful sriicy strawberry aroma.
No lewer than sixty live ripe berries
were counted on one plant, with
numerotV young shoots load.-d
with blossoms and all sizes of berries.
So numerous were the rijH berries
visible in tho plantation that they
gave a beautitul ruddy tinge to the
surface of the patch.
The berries of t his remarkable va
riety are not large, but their abund
ance makes tin for lack of size, and it.
is thought that bv Kroner cultivation
the size can be increased.
On their native heath, in tho upper
Sierras, t hese plants bear fruit eiglit
months in the year, and would con
tinue longer but 'for tho fact that they
are "nipped untimely" by frostv anil
snowy weather. On lower levels it is
expected that ten months will be the
least period of their continuous bear
ing. We sttsjioct that there is just a
touch of the breezy hyperbole of the
glorious West in the description of
this new candidate for popular favor;
but we are readv to welcome tIip
"honey strawberry" to the list and
recommend t he trial of it i, indeed
it will llourish away from its Sierra'
