Alaike and Crimson Clover.
Atsike. said T. B. Terry at a recent
farmers' institute, makes a nice hay
and is much valued by the beemen. but
It is not as valuable a fertilizer as red
clover, because it does not shade the
ground so much. Crimson clover Is
another valuable plant It is an an
nual, and must be renewed each year.
It should be sown as a crop, and, grow
ing to a late season, will get a good
start in the fall. It begins growing at
an early day in spring, and will be
large enough to cut before June. It is
most valuable when cut and fed direct
from the land, and It Is also valuable
to plow under, as it contains a large
amount of nitrogen. If It will succeed
here, it will be found valuable to bring
land up in fertility.
Pears Made Profitable.
In answer to a question In the Rural
New Yorker, if the coming market for
pears is likely to prove profitable to the
raiser, Messrs. Ellwanger & Barry
make the following judicious remarks:
"The prospect for disposing of a crop
of pears at profitable prices is always
good; we have never had any difficulty
In disposing of ours. The autumn and
winter varieties are the most valuable
because there is never enough to be
found on the market." Tbey further
urge the Importiuiie of well-grown,
carefully graded and well-assorti-d
fruit They name the AnJjn, Clair

for the removal of Mr. Dana to Wash

being that Noyes bad been libeled In

three counts, first, that tbe Sun Print
