Early Morning Best Time.
The whole affair Is very much easier
done than described, and with flowers
fairly numerous an ordinary hand will
fecundate a hundred or so per hour.
Early morning, from 7 to 9, Is the best
time for fertilizing; but the work may
be started with sunrise and carried on
well Into tho afternoon, though about
midday floncrs begin to close some and
the work goes slower. Most plants In
full crop produce many more flowers
than It Is advisable to fertilize, for
other parts of the vines, besides tho
checked hanging branches, blossom In
favorablo seasons, and tho number of
pods which a vine is able to mature
properly mutt be estimated from tho
plant's size and condition. In the
course of four or five years, though by
that time the planted cutting will be
spent, If well cared for It will havo
grown a large quantity of vine; and nj
each new shoot, when long enough,
sends down aerial roots In Its own be
half, it becomes, so to speak, an Inde
pendent plant and tho parent of oth
ers. If nono ot tho shoots from a
strong growing vine have been removed
tho mass of growth In time becomes
enormous, and may be equal to matur
ing a hundred or more good pods.
When the supporting treo Is stout and
furnishes forks enough to admit of tho
vine being spread out so as to let plenty
of air through It the vine may bo al
lowed to accumulate to this extent.
and If It gives, say, twenty clusters,
each yielding ten or more flowers, (Hu
or six might bo fertilized on each.
Thirty Pods to a Vine.
But. generally speaking) about thirty
pods to a vine Is as many as should bo
left, nnd he would bo a lucky planter
who should average that number. In
selecting flowers to fertilize, those
should be chosen which spring from tho
lower part and fromHhe sides of tho
flower BtalkB, from which position they
grow stralgbter pods than those com
ing out on top. In favorable weather i.
e moist but not heavy rain (which
latter often washes the pollen grains
away before they germinate), only a
smalt percentage of flowers will fall
of fecundation. In case of failure, tha
flower drops off In three days or less,
but otherwise remains attached to Its
stalk and slowly withers; tho gynos
tcmlum adheres to most pods till they
begin to ripen; thus it is easy to see
u is advisable to cut clean on with i
knife the flower stalk a quarter ot an
Inch or so beyond tho last fertilized
(lower. Some planters plaster a bit of
sticky clay on the cut surface to pre
vent It rooting back. Dry lime Is per
haps better; this may bo dabbed on
with a picco of cloth dipped In tho
Altitude and Shade.
Tods grow to their full size in fho
or six weeks, but tako some eight
months, more or less, according to tha
altitude at which they nre grown, or
tho amount of shade over them, before
they ripen. The Indication of ripening
Is a slight yellowing ot the whole pod,
which Is more mnrked near Its free end.
When under too much shade tho cliangn
In color Is less noticeable, and many
pods grown In such plnecB split before
they arc gathered, and for that rea
son lose In alue. To guard against
splitting, and yet gather them at per
fect ripeness, they should be gono over
oery other day. In removing them
from tho flower stalks tho pods are
grasped ono by one near their attach
ed ends, very slightly twisted, and at
the same time pressed aside with tho
thumb. They must bo taken off qultH
clean. If a bit of the flower stalk comes
away with a pod, as sometimes will
happen, It should he cut off smoothly.
Any break or crack In the pod Itself
however, near Its butt, ranks It as an
Inferior quality. Buyers aro very par
ticular In this respect After each
day's gathering, before tho pods are
started on their first stage of curing,
it Is well to sort them roughly Into
four classes: 1, long; 2, medium; 3
short, and 4, spilt.
Curing the Pods for Market.
There are many different modes of
preparing vanilla, but for brevity's
sake ono alone will be described; It is
probably the simplest, and appears to
bs as successful as any other. About
100 ot tho longest pods arc placed In a
basket and plunged Into hot water
(190 P.) for ten seconds; this Is re
peated twice, the dips being Increased
to twclco to fifteen seconds respec
tively, with Intervals ot half a mlnuts
between each two. After tho third dip,
when most of the water has been drain
ed off, the pods are placed In a wooden
box or barrel lined with blankets, and

of the Chicago Inter Ocean. ilut
rarlsicnnes, not to bo daunted where
their taste and convenience are con
cerned, have rcsohed to replace It by
something else. It Is so very conveni
ent to hae a smart skirt, so that les
elegantes have taken to wearing a sort
of Louis XV Jacket, which may be
mnde of any color or material unlike
the skirt, and which Is Infinitely smart
er and more dressy than the demode
The very latest model I have seen of
this kind, which was Ineffably smart,
was of maize-colored taffeta, made
with a short basque and cutnway
fronts. The short elbow sleeves had
a large turned-back cuff, the rccrse ot
which were embroidered with one-
sage was cut tery low, and from tht
shoulders fell a sort of stole of thick
cream Venetian guipure, richly em
broidered with Jet and pallettes. This
stole framed the dccoletagc on the
sides and falling loosely over the bust
It covered the wholo of the front ot the
I bodice and fell to a few Inches below
tht waist where It ended In a deep V
shaped point. This stole If Btolc It
can be called was removable so that
It could be replaced by another loose
stole cut higher near the neck, thus
transforming the robe to a dinner dress
or a theater gown. Of courso other
stoles ot tho kind could be Invented
for this gown ad libitum, and provided
the steeveB were made long and the
corsago were not cut too low It could
be transformed Into n very smart day
gown. The long pointed stole of gui
pure and paillettes was most effective,,
but a finer kind of lace Incrusted with
turquoise cabochons and crystal unci
golden beads would look equally well

course, seen only In front, as it dis
appeared beneath the basque of tha
coat at the sides.
For theater wear for smart G
o'clocks these small coats arc most
charming. Made In velvet and edged
with narrow bands of fur they look
extremely well, or, again, when fash
ioned of thick Venetian or Irish point
lace, over white or colored satin, they
make most effective theater corsages.
Made of some gay colored panne they
arc also very smart. One that was to
seen at a very swell dressmaker's es
tablishment recently was of nme

nway basques, which fell rather flat
anl smooth on the hips and opened In
the front over chemisette of plaited

color. At the waist the coat was se
cured to the Inner vest by means ol
four large old paste buttons, which
presumably held It tight to the waist
band of draped white satin, only visible
In the front of the corsage. The coat
was decollette en rond, according to
the mode which was de rlgueur In the
days of La Pompadour, and was drap

the bust was a butterfly bow of lleht

as If the new hat trimmings had been

bloom of fine sugar which the best
kind of rnlslns generally have about
them Is remarkably well reproduced, as
are also the delicate brown wooden
looking stems. Strange to say these
raisins are rarely, If ever, used entirely '
alone as a trimming. They are usual

used In conjunction with pale pink
