PRODUCING EARLY VEGE
In these short seasons I find it
an object to force plants as fast as
possible. June 16 of this year I
put in one acre of the Acme tomato,
and now, in Tess than 60 days, we
have ripe fit.- Some ripe ones
have been hanging on the vines
more than a week from which to
save seed. Of course, in so short
a peas,g the general crop is not
yet ripe. Within 30 dayt I am sat
isfied that nearly the entire crop
will be marketable. If -there is-any
variety of tomatoes in this country
that excels the Acme for earliness,
I would be pleased to hear of it.
In size- they are large enough, are
quite symmetrical, of a fine red
color, wigi an exceptionally solid
flesh, and have the best flavor one
could wish. The soil is a gravelly
one, not very rich, but phosphated
heavily with Chicago phosphate.
The plants were put in at least
four inches deep, and some plants
six inches. I tied each plant to a
stake (using cull broom handles)
not taller than thfee feet after be
ing 4.iven to the proper depth.
They were tied to the stake twis.
An soon-as they were large enough
to cordiiences falling overithey were
tied; tiii cloth strings miade
from old garments. The string
was wg donge around the stake,
so th~eweigh of vines and
frit wot nd piiil~ the strinig
down. The cultivator was run
through them every day (excepting
the 4th of July, rainy days and
Sunday) until they were filling the
spaces, and by this time they were
at the top of the stakes. They
were again. tied to the top of the
stake, simply passing the string
aro'ind the.tops of the plants. and
gathering them quite close to the
stake, but not snug. They now
stand about shoulder high, and are
still growing, but I have corn
meneedecutting off the new branches
which grow about the stakes. Get
ting ripe watermelons in sixty days
is an uncommon thing about here,
but ..b raising a large number of
plants on inverted soils, and put
ting them out into the open ground,
Junej6thpl hve had them already'
ripe r e a pe;-less than ;sixty
daya 'afteW pnting. I have also
the same report to make of cucum
bers, summer squash and musk
melons. Squashes and cucumbers
have'JMeen. on the- table for three
wee~k Thle4oil for all these vines
is a 96nyr graveRly one, over
lyingea ..porouis subsoil. I could
not say how many times vines have
been. planted there, but there have
been no weeds, and vines of all de-z
scriptions -have been put in very
deep, and not in hills. Inused a
common plow to furrow with, run
ning it as deep as one horse could
well draw it, and making afurrow
from four to six inches in depth.
The melons, squashes, and cucam
bers were put in so deep that the
ground could not be leveled off' un
til the vines had grown a few
inches higher, and now the piece
presets a level appearance. For
prodnetiveness I never saw the
equal.-Cor. Country Gentleman.

HOUSEHOLD NOTES ANID
"Americau Agriculturist for March 1.
TE MoTEs.-A word in seasor
.s the one that tells. This is no
the month for moths, but it is gel
,ing so far along towards the tim
when the precautions should b
Ased, that in giving them now
many will be saved the trouble c
writing to ask what to do wit'
heir robes, furs, etc. As strang
Ls it may seem, we meet with it
telligent persons, who do not ur
lerstaud the changes in insect lif
-all should know that we hav
irst the egg ; then the larva-soom
kind of a caterpillar, maggot, o
rub, something of the "worm
6ind; this then goes into the pups
>r chrysalis state, remains quiet
while, then comes out as the pei
feet insect-either butterfly, motl
beetle, fly, or whatever its kinc
[n the clothes moth it is the larvf
the caterpillar, that does the mih
:hief ; its perfect form is popularl
known as the "Moth Miller," and i:
due time will be seen flitting abou
the house. Now ihe trouble arise
from allowing this parent moth t
deposit her eggs upon or in th
fabric, which afterwards furnishe
the food for the young "worms.
Prevention is thus seen to be th
most important remedy. Henc
various things that are distasteful t
the mother moth, and not injuriou
to the furs, woollens, etc., are i
frequent use to keep the moth
way. Of such are Camphor Gn
Cedar Shavings, Pepper, Tobacc
tc., sprinkled on the fabrics. Bt
the best and surest method is, t
put the goods away in a place
box, barrel, or even paper bag
where the moths cannot enter
md pack the goods in it befor
there is any chance for the eggs t
Hous onD AccouNrs.-There ar
reasons why the wife or housE
eeper should keep an accoun
ook. In the first place it woul'
urnish interesting information c
~he number of pounds of sngal
~pice, floiur, meat, etc., that a fan
ly of a certain size consumes
[ow many know anything deninit
about these things ! Again, such:
ecord would suggest changes in th
iving in one way or another, an4
urnish a basis for calculation c
he requirements foi- the comini
ear. We knew of a lady whi
ent so far as to keep an accoun
f the number of extra meals whici
he furnished in a year ; and whei
t was announced the family wer<
~reatly surprised. A househol<
ccount is a startlirg revealer o
acts. As a matter of family his
ory, a record should be kept-c
~ourse, the dates of births an<
eathas will be given in the Recor<
o be found in the family Bible, bu
here are other things that trans
ire in a family worthy of note.
