Tils is the spirit that seems to ani

So far as one can see, this is no pass

This is an inspiring and cheering

one denomination alone has opened an

increase this in the year now entered

educational branches realize it, and
new schools are springing up every

from the United States alone last year,

VarUUaa ar Strawhorrlev
From Farmers' Review: It seems
to me now, after twenty years of ex
perience, that there is nothing more
Important to the strawberry grower
than choice of variety. In the raising
of grain, or vegetables or fruit of any
kind, much depends on the proper se
lection of varieties, but in strawberry
culture almost everything depends on
it With a pretty general knowledge
of the well tested varieties now grown,
gained both by observation and read
ing. I do not hesitate to say emphatic
ally that for this latitude and for a
number of degrees north and south of
the latitude of Chicago, the one great
berry, worth more than all the others
together, is the Warfleld.
Speaking of strawberry culture in
the past I think it is true that there
have been just three great berries,
each of which had Its day "and gave
way to the next, and these are the Wil
son, the Crescent, and the Warfleld.
Growers who raised the Wilson in Its
day and who at the proper time sub
stituted the Crescent, and then after
the Warfleld was well introduced
planted it and gave up the Crescent,
have done the best for themselves and
for their customers that could be done.
I think most practical growers will
agree with me when I 6peak of the
expense and disappointment which
have attended our efforts to secure the
best varieties. What a time indeed we
have had with the highly praised new
comers, the BIdwells, Manchesters,
Jewels, Lady Rusks, Cbas. Downeys,
Big Bobs. Ht Vernons, Bubacbs, Jes
sies, Parker Earles. and a host of
others whose names I will not men
tion, all introduced with a great flour
ish and often having some good quali
ties but as practical, business berries,
utterly worthless. It seems strange to
me that so many writers and even ex
periment stations speak of some good
point in very many of these varieties,
without adding that in the summing
up they have no value at all.
I know that some growers will pro
test against my judgment of some of
these berries, but I believe the best
conclusions of practical men are in line
with my own. Some would probably
defend the Bubach and Haverland,
which are of good size and productive,
but I never ate one of the first without
regretting It, and the second I would
net permit my pickers to gather, so
wretchedly soft and tasteless It is.
Parker Earle Is solid and productive,
but of bad color and unreliable. Beder
Wood Is productive and has been high
ly praised, but I have always felt guilty
for picking it at all, so soft and In
sipid and colorless It Is and I am glad
to see in our latest station reports that
it is not recommended as it was.
Doubtless some of the new berries
will prove to have value, and some,
like the Marshall, are certain to be of
use for fancy market, but I repeat in
conclusion that for the climate I have
mentioned, for real value both to pro
ducer and consumer, there is no well
tested berry which is worthy of com
parison with Warfleld. In my view
the most important problem for prac
tical growers now is to find the best
and most reliable fertilizer for the

The Valae of Weed.
Weeds have a value. The writer
once heard Professor Bailey say that
the weed is the friend of the farmer,
and no man should want to get rid of
a farm because it is weedy. He him
self had purchased a good farm at a
low price, because it had ail run to
weeds and the former owner believed
that they were so numerous as to
greatly reduce the value of the land.
But these same weeds had been keep
ing the fertility of the soil from leach
ing out, and had kept the ground in a
condition where it would not bake,
but would readily yield to the plow.
He simply turned all the weeds under
and got back the fertility they bad
taken from the ground. Then he
planted to other crops and had a re
Were it not for weeds, say after a
clover crop, the nitrogen in the soil in
readiness for plant use would disap
pear. As it is, the weeds take it up
and hold it for subsequent crops. The
cultivation that is necessary to keep
down weeds Is not time and effort lost
The benefit to the crop cultivated is
more than enough to pay for the out
lay. The additional effect of conserva
tion of moisture is not to be forgot
ten. Weeds are also valuable for the work
they do in keeping the land In the
hands of the many. Were there no
weeds the cultivation of the land could
be undertaken on an immense scale by
men of wealth and a monopoly in land
would be possible. If such a monopoly
were attempted at this time, the coat
of keeping the land clean would make
it Impossible to keep it under control.
Abbobs; the Wladow Plants.
From the Farmers' Review: At
this season of the year most
plants In the window will begin to
make strong, vigorous growth, if
properly fed. As soon as they begin
to grow, but not before, give them lib
eral applications of some good fer
tilizer. Many persons whose plants
are not growing -satisfactorily think
to "give them a start" by feeding
them rich food. This is all wrong.
The plants are not in condition to
make use of such food until they be
gin to grow. It Injures them if given
when they cannot assimilate it There
fore, wait and keep close watch of
them, and when signs of growth are
seen, begin to feed them. Give weak
applications at first increasing the
supply as the growth of the plant in
creases. The proper time to train plants Is
when they are growing. If a branch
shows a tendency to outgrow other
branches, thus making the plant un
symmetrlcal, nip off the end of it at
once. Keep it from making more
growth until the other branches have
had a chance to catch up with it thus
giving the plant proper balance on all
sides. Most persons neglect their
plants in this respect beause, they
say, "It seems such a pity to Interfere
with them, when they are growing so
well." Growth Is not all we aim at
We want well-shaped, symmetrical
plants, and such plants we can not
have unless we give them proper train
ing. Very few plants can be trusted
to train themselves. Whatever train
ing they get should be given while
they are in the early stages of de
velopment The old saying that it is
bard work to teach an old "dog new
tricks applies here. When a plant has
been allowed to grow to suit itself
until it has reached Its prime, it is too
late to do very much for it Take It
in hand, then, while growing, aad
make it understand that it most corns
to your terms. Plants are tractable
things. They will do as you tell them
to if they see you. "mean baa wees.'

Fertility la Potatoes,
Bulletin 57 of the Maine Experiment
Station giving some figures of the
chemical contents of a potato crop
says: Assuming these figures to fairly
represent potatoes as grown in Maine,
a crop of 200 bushels, weighing six
tons, would remove thirty-seven
pounds of nitrogen, sixteen pounds of
phosphoric acid and fifty-eight pounds
of potash. If the amounts and pro
portions of fertilizing elements re
moved by a crop could be taken as a
guide in preparing a field for that crop,
the problem of supplying the proper
amount and kind of plant food to the
soil would be much simplified. To
manure a field for a crop of potatoes,
nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash
would have to be added in about the
proportions given above and in suf
ficient quantity to supply the vines
and tubers the land was expected to
yield. A formula made up on this
basis would be very materially differ
ent from any mixed fertilizer on the
market and would contain the fertiliz
ing elements in about the following
proportions: Nitrogen, 5 parts; phos

No Dark Stable.
I want my stable above ground; no
cellar for me, as I do not believe cows
relish being confined in a dungeon any
more than a man does, said C. D. Hess
in a paper read by him at the recent
convention of dairymen at Columbus.
Give them all the sunlight possible. I
never saw a stable with too many win
dows to suit me. If you are building
by all means look well to your water
supply, ir possible to do so, build
where you can have the advantage of
running water in your stables. If you
cannot do this be sure you get a sup
ply of well water at all times in the
year at a reasonable der'.b. After you
have fitted up your str.ble with mod
ern devices for watering those cows,
go one step further ar.d arrange to heat
that water up to a temperature of 70
degrees. You say this means a great
deal of trouble and expense, but if
there is a man in this room who has
ever tried warming the water for his
milk cows that did not think himself
fully repaid there is something wrong
with the man or else he has the wrong
kind of cows.
The state of Michigan has begun pro
secutions, in Jackson county, that
state, against Armour ft Company of
Chicago for the selling of process but
ter without labeling it as such. The
fact that the Chicago packer named Is
engaged in the manufacture of process
butter is not perhaps, generally
known. It was supposed that the Chi
cago packers made butterine as a side
issue, mainly as a means of disposing
of their by-products to the best ad
vantage. The making over of rancid
butter, however, is something of a de
parture for the meat packers, and it
will probably not be long before we
find the same factors at work In other
lines of dairy effort It seems likely
that the firms that make and sell pro
cess butter in Michigan will be com
pelled to sell It under the name of
"process" butter. Not till recently has
the dairy and food department of that
state been able "to distinguish process
butter from fresh butter, but now a
way to distinguish them has been dis
covered. The dairy and food commis
sion of Michigan has set a good ex

limited to 230. Kief to 200. Charkow to
173, Dorpat to 150, Tomsk to 120, and
i Kasan and Warsaw to 100. Thus the
total number of medical freshmen in

include the students of the St. Pcters-
