What Farmers want to Know
Tho "Puro Seed Man's" Now Book Is cor
talnly different from the many other seed books
that como to our desk. When a book or letter Is
written by a man who has a thorough personal
knowledge of his business and adds to that knowl
edge his boat painstaking effort, the result Is In
tcrosting reading. In this particular seed 'book
ono roads living, breathing pages. Not tho usual
stereotyped technical terms of tho need trado, but
tho heart to heart talk of a man who talks and
writes of bis seed business, his long experience
and his life In genoral, in a way that mnkoj you
at once feel and coo that profit in business is not
tho only consideration a man may havo lor living.
There aro many things in tho tei'd business that
aro important for ovory farmer to know. Many
of these things do not show on tho outsido and
neither is it easily possibly to learn thorn. Many
of theso very important things aro put into under
standable English in tho Puro Seed Man's now
book. To got a froo copy of It writo tho Shenan

The Strawberry Bed
If you have never had a straw
berry bed, you havo missed a great
deal, and if you have one, and
let it "run down," you are very culp
able. Get the ground ready as
quickly as possible, and reset for a
new bed, if the old 1b falling. Some
contend that it is better that this
should be done the previous autumn;
but no matter; if you neglected it
then, do not add to your neglect now.
Set the plants early and give them
good culture. They won't (or should
not be allowed to) bear very much
of a crop this season, but they will
give you plenty of fruit next spring.
Then, this autumn, try to make up
for last year's neglect, and have
plenty of strawberries. There Is no
better fruit. If you have no knowl
edge of the strawberry plant, get your
nurseryman to choose for you, and to
advise you as to what varieties to get
and how to care for them. There
are scrubs among plants, just as
among animals, and they are just as
worthless. Novelties are not advised,
except In small numbers as experi
ments. Stick to the recognized
standards, but be sure to plant
something worth while.

Hardy Ornamental "Vines
Nothing is more beautiful about
the home than the hardy ornamental
vines or climbers. Tho fruit-bearing
vines have a place of their own;
but nothing can supply the place re
served for beauty except the flower
bearing kind. For tho porch or
trellis, there Is nothing better than
the ampelopsis quinquefolio, the dif
ferent clematises, and the Japanese
evergreen honeysuckle. The cle
matis may be made Into a pillar
climber, while the Bignonio radicans
or (trumpet-flower vine) can be
trained Into a tree form. These
are all hardy, and fine plants of each,
singly or in quantities, can be had
of the nurserymen at . .reasonable
nrices. Once established, they can
be multiplied by- division of roots,
or layering, or cuttings, and some
of them by seeds. For clinging on
brick or stonewalls, and less securely
on wooden walls, there is nothing
better than the ampelopsis Veitchii,
SI in nothinc more beautiful,
though there is no bloom. .

mistaken notion that a dense growth

by using the rooted plants instead

A trellis should be built a few inches

Give the boy a garden spot of his
own; give him time and tools to
keep it cultivated, and let him sell
his produce, either to your own self
or the market. Treat him fairly, and
let him havo what Is justly his. Let
him have a few flower seeds, too, but
Insist that he realizes tho responsi
bility of caring for them.
Peas will stand frosts, and even
light snows. Sown early enough
they should begin to bear by the
first of May.
Grass plats need attention; all the
old, dead grass should be well raked
off, the little holes and hollows filled
In with soil, and the naked places
re-sown with seeds. If the growth
of grass is scant, sow the best seeds
you can get, and sow early.
A dressing of wood ashes is a
good thing for a lawn. Newly seeded
lawns should not bo trampled upon.
If you are going to have isweet
peas, you must plant them just as
soon as you can get them into the
soil. Plant in trenches, cover lightly,
