Grapes In Cities and Tillages.
It is surprising, Mr. Editor, that so
few farmers raise grapes, even for
home use. The Agriculturist has said
a good deal on the subject, but not
enough yet, I find; for only last week
some of my friends living on a farm
of one hundred j'.cres were in ecstasies
over a nice basket of grapes, receiv
ed from my three year old vines grow
ing on a city lot of only twenty-five by
seventy-five feet, and having only 20
feet square for a garden. They had
grown no such luxury, and yet they
subscribe for the Agriculturist! Tho
fact is, they confessed that they had
always skipped over all the grape
articles as something for amateurs or
horticulturists, and not for farmers.
I showed them how easy it is to get
good grapes in abundance, and at lit
tle cost and trouble, and they at once
decided to put out a few vines vithout
delay. They thought I ought to tell
the readers of your paper just what I
told them; so here it is :
Three y ears ago last Spring, I built
at odd hours, a rude framework on
the southwest side of my house which
answered not only as a trellis for the
grape vines, but also as a serene to
keep off the sun, on hot afternoons.
Six posts, six feet above the ground,
were set five feet apart, and ten feet
from the house. Strips were nailed
across, and small rafter3 ran from the
tops of the posts slanting up against
side of the house, with strips across
them also. Such a framework, though
convenient, is not necessary, as the
vines may be trained up against the
side of the house, or on a fence, or
almost anywhere that anything can be
found for "them to run on.
Now for the vines. Four hole3, 3
feet across and three feet deep, were
dug at the outside of the frame, and
one at each corner of the house.
These holes were filled up with good
surface soil obtained from the top soil

gence who is at all acquainted, or who
has traveled but a titCc even in the
northwestern States, will tell you that
the resources of any of thesi; States
ha3 begun to Lo developed. I will
venture the assertion, without the fear
of contradiction, that west and south
of the lakes, with tlie single exception
of Ohio, no single State has more than
one t?nth of her arable land now under
cultivat'oa. Look for instance, at II
liuois, which is comparatively an old
State. I have not the late United
States census returns now before me,
but I have no doubt jt would bear me
out in s .lying that less than a tenth of
li&r fertile soil has yet been broken by
the plowshare. And if with her lim
ited acres under cultivation j-he has
such millions of surplus grains to
spare, estimate, if you can, what she
upon tbe ground at tho bottom of the
trellis, out of the way.
In the Spring, when the bu Is be
gan to .swell, the canes were tied up
on the frame or trellis. All the eyes
sent out one or more side bearing
sheots, but where more than one star
ted from the same eve, it was rubbed
off. The others mostly set fruit, of
which onlv one cluster nearest the
main stem was allowed to grow on the
same side shoot. When the fruit was
about the size of peas, I stopped the
further growth of the side shoot by
pinching off two leaves beyond the
cluster. The result was, fine large
bunches of grapes along the whole of
the eight feet ot the previous year's
growth. In the mean time the vines
extended upward over the trellis, and
enough side shoots were allowed to
grow to partly cover the trellis frame.
In November I cut off about two feet

the resources and capacity of Illinois
and Iowa, and the whole northwest,
are fully developed, who can then es
timate or tell us where to find a mar
ket for the grain,, the beef and the
pork which we cannot use ?
The best cultivated parts of New
England do not produce more than
one-fourth what the soil is capable of
doing under a proper and improved
state of cultivation.
Now, when the whole northwest,
and acre of which is naturally as good
as two in New England, comes to the
same cultivation that New Eng'and
now has, we can feed "all the world
and thtrestof mankind." 'jalk about
estimating the capacity of a country
whose navigable rivers are four thou
sand miles long, with a soil as fertile
as ever the sun shone upon, and a
population whose .chief end is to keep
what they get and get all they can as
the leading shoots. The bearing side
shoots were cut back to one bud from
the main stem. The whole vines were
then coiled up and laid down for Win
ter on the ground. In Spring, the
vines were used up, and the same
course pursued with the mainstems
and branches as with the main stems
last year. Thi3 year I have had fif
teen pounds of fine grapes on each
vine. If .all had grown without pin
ching off. I should have had fifty lbs
to the vine, but I am seeking to get
good stroug, healthy vines. The

a large crop annually, with little care

cover them with a little straw. When
there ii real danger of freezing, car

But there is a great difference in
cellars. One that is warm and damp,
is a poor place to preserve any sort of
fruits or vegetables from decaying.
Some persons maintain that a warm
and dry basement or stove room is the
best for all sorts of squashes. A
horticultural contributor to the Tri
bune hold that a dry store room, or
a furnace heated apartment, that nev
er gets eold enough to freeze, or a
closet near a fireplace, are good pla
ces in which to keep squashes and
pumpkins. They also keep well when
hung up in baskets or bags overhead
in the kitchen, cr on a hanging shelf
In our experience, such warm pla
ces or closets, where the temperature
varies much, are poor places for the
purpose. We succeed best with squash
es kept jn a cold, dry cellar, and not
exposed to too much light. Theoret
ically and practically, heat moisture
and light are found to promote rapid
decomposition. The squashes should
be placed on shelves separately, and
with a few thicknesses of paper un
der each. Agriculturist.

Cost of Tobacco and Strong Drink.
There are in the United States thir
ty millions of people. We will sup
pose one-third of these chew tobacco,
smoke, or take snuff. A few consume
a dollar's worth daily, others 50 cts.,
others 25 ct3., other3 10 cts., others 5
cts., others 1 to 2 cts. The average
is, say 5 cts. each daily. Ten millions
at 5 cts. each, is $500,000.
Half the people of the United States
drink other beverages than water, milk
tea, cocoa and coffee. The wines and
brandies of manv cost dailv S3, others
$2,50, ethers 31. others 50 cts., others
25 cts., others 10 cts., others 5 cts.,
others who buy whisky by the gallon,
1 to 2 cts. The average is, say 5 cts.
each daily. Fifteen millions, at 5
ct3.,' make daily, 750,000. Total
We thus see that these accursed
poisons cost the people of the United
States, day by day, as much a3 the
war. Do they not cause a3 much
misery, and are they not quite as de

So much has been said respecting
the extent and success of the vine
yards at Kelly's Island, that som3
persons may have concluded tint tha
limestone clayey soil of th.it region
(and of Cincinnati) is the only kind
upon which grape can be successfully
grown. It is undoubtedly truo that
the lake atmosphere ha3 a very bena
tk-iai influence in preventing frost and
the rotting of the fruit, bat from what
I have seen, I am led to believe that
many localities along lake shoro will
be found nearly or quite as favoralld
for vineyards, and in somo respect
the sandy S'dls which predominate
eastward of Erie county mav be found
more suitable for this purpose than tho
heavier lands of the limestone districts;
While spending a few days in Cuy
ahoga aud Ljake counties the first of
the past month, I visited a numbsr of
vineyards and gardens, and was pres
ent at the county fairs in both coun
ties, and nowhere h ave I ever seeu
more abundant crops of the finest
grapes than was here exhibited. At
the fair at Cleveland, especially, thf
atawbas and Isabellas were finer anil
more abundant than I ever beforo
witnessed; and the Catawbas growa
in that vicinity were finer th in thos
exhibited there from tho Island, by
Mr. Kelly. It is true that all tha
samples of this variety were somewhat
deficient in flavor, at that time, owing
to the lack of sunny weather to impart
perfect ripeness, hut this wa3 as per
ceptible in the Island fruit as tha
others, and as no frost occurred for
some weeks afterwards, I presumed
that all ripened well before the ga

the fruit was not as well matured. . It

varieties, some of which arc tho seed
lings of the foxy order, and of not
much value. The vineyard' of Dr.
Ensign and Son, at Madison in Lako
county, is also quite successful; it
embraces both Catawhas and Isabellas.
At the end of Fairs at Painsvillo
and Cleveland, I observed apparently
two varieties of Isabella ; the olo
with a berrv of medium size, and oval
form, as usually seen ; the other of
larger size, round berry, and mora
musky cdor. I measured somo of
these berries at Paineville almost tlirco
inchc3 in circumference, and should at
once have declared they couul not bo
Isabella, if I had not seen specimens
from different localities exhibiting guch
diversity of size, shape and order, Ls
to lead me to suspect that tho soil and
culture, cr the season, had, perhaps,
produced the result. Still, I would
suggest tho inquiry whether thero are
not one or more seedling varieties cf
the Isabella in those regions.
The Taylor or Bullet Grape, (of
Ky.,) as shown to me by Dr. Taylor
of Cleveland, doe3 not scca to merit
the praise that has been bestowed on
it at the East. The berries are small
and q'uite too stony for the safety of
teeth, whjle the flavor i3 no better,'to
say tho least, than several other light
colored varieties, which arc superior
to it in manv respects.
The Lydia, (Seedling cf Charles
Carpenter.) as exhibited this seasou.
does not seem to improve in size cr
flavor as much as wa3 expressed, and,
as compared with Cuyahoga and Re
becca, will hardly gain, much noulir
