In Germany "von" implies nobility,
and all persons who belong to the no
bility prefix "von" t their names with
out any exception. Persons who do not
belong to the nobility cannot have ihe
right to put "von" before their names.
A man who it knighted for some reason
however, has the same right to put
"von" before his family nan e as a per
son of ancient nobility. For instance,
when Alexander Humbolt was knighted
he becrnie Alexander von Humbolt.
All his descendant, male and female
take the prefix.

Manure fur Strawberries.
The strawberry plantation requires
very heavy manuring to produce Its
best yield. Kvery year on mot plants
there Is a succession of berries, the
first and second pickings being almost
always larger and finer than those tiat
rliK-n later. Hut If the later sea.son la
very wet, as It sometimes Is, we hav
kuowu the later crop to ripen up and
be very nearly an good us the first.
This suggests that In addition to the
toji dressing applied In winter there
ought to Ik' a.n additional fertilization,
while the crop hi forming, and this last
should be always dissolvl In water,
so as to be readily available. NltraAe
of potatib Is the best manure to be thus
applied. fhi Is saltpetre, and cost
five tojdx centx per pound. Hut a very
small lump dissolved In warm waiter
and applied freely will keop the vine
freh and vigorous to the last, and will

fruit. The lalxir of applying liquid ms
nure Is more thau Its cost, and in great
