ELGIN. Keep on sending every
week; then on the ioth of the follow
ing month the ELGIN will tend you
pay for all the cream you delivered
the previous month; then start your
bank account, but keep on shipping
cream as long as you have any use
FRUIT AND FERTILITY.
' "Next to tomatoes it has been found
that strawberries make the least dc-
.mand on the soil. An acre of ground
producing 6ooo pounds of berries will
be called on to give up only eight
and one-half pounds of nitrogen, thrc..
pounds of phosphoric acid, and ten
pounds of potash. In other word 3
the land will have to put only about
one-tenth as much plant food into a
crop of berries that it would into a
crop of corn. The berries will gen
, ' crally sell for about ten times as
much as the corn, so that for the
same number of dollars of return the
s5il will have only to part with about
one-hundredth as much plant food.
There is nothing removed from ths
plant except the fruit, and this, like
tomatoes, is largely water. While it
i necessary to pay some attention to '
the fertility of the soil and to oc
cinsionally apply some kind of ferti
lizer, it is not necessary to make a
heavy application at any time. Us- '
ually the best time to make such nn
'application is in the summer or fall,
after the fruit 1ms been removed.
perhaps the best material for this
purpose is well rotted barnyard man
ure. It is necessary to have the man
ure well rotted so that the plant food
it contains will not be scattered
through too great a bulk and all the
weed seeds that it contains will be
dead. Many times the application of
tjhc rich soil, found where an old
tnatw suck had been rotted down or
where there had been a cow lot, U
preferable to manure. Make the ap
plication to the soil between the rows
and mix it in the dirt with a hoe.
