GRAPE AND CURRANT CUTTINGS.
Early December is a good time to
make your grape and currant cuttings,
says the department of horticulture of
the Nebraska Experiment Station.
The best grape cuttings include two
or three buds and are from seven to
twelve inches in length. Currants do
best when cut from six to seven inches
in length. The cuttings can be stored
in the cellar in bundles, packed in
sand. In this way they will callus so
that roots will form readily when they
are planted in the spring.
There are so many investigations of
the high prices of foodstuffs it gives
the cusses an excuse to boast again.

A NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION.
It is time to begin planning a New
Year’s resolution to keep books on the
business of farming, says the farm
management extension service of the
University of Nebraska.
Nothing along the line of farm
records gives so much in return for
the time spent as a farm inventory;
for it shows not only the profits for
the year, but enables the farmer to
imake a thorough study his business,
j For those who own their farms, Jan- j
' uary 1, is probably the best time to
|make an inventory; for tenants, the
date of the lease is most satisfactory.
Blanks for making a farm inventory
may be* had upon application to the
extension service. University Farm,
