the crop Is plowed under, through their

two or oven three crops of hay from

fertility. True It Is that alfalfa does
not do well on all soils and under all
conditions of climate and soil moisture,
but In any orchard wheie It can be

This is a sensible move and one that

If the manure has accumulated
around the barn this winter, get it out
now before the spring work com
mences. Put it on tlie knolls on the
meadow pasture. It is worth more to
the ground now than at any subse

rains wash out.
An eastern fanner succeeded iu
keeping his Jersey bull lu u very docile

animal regularly In a tread power

way Is lo pull the bulk of the straw

Home Grown Celery.
Mo vegetable that came from our gar
den the past year gave n greater meas
ure of satisfaction or proved a more
toothsome delicacy than the product of
a small bed of celery. If early celery
is desired, the seed should be sown lu
a bo Indoors or Iu a hotbed, the
plants being transferred Jo the open
ground as soon ns the weather permits.
iYnusphiiitliig gives n stocky and vig
orous plant. We have found a very
satlsfactory nrrangement for the celery
bed to be as follows: D'gJu. treucli of
the width and length desWll and to a
depth of nbout eight or ten luches;
work into tho soil at the bottom sev
eral wheelbarrow iloads of well rotted
manure, setting the plants in rows
about ten Inches apart and about eight
inches apart In the row, Being lu the
trench and below Hie surface of the
gr art, the bed does not dry out rap
idly, while tho watering of the bed Is
greatly simplified. During the period
of early growth the bed should bo hoed
aud kept free from weeds. When nbout
twelve or fourteen Inches' high hilling
should be begun, the earth taken from
the trench at the start being returned.
With this method no boards nre neces
sary. Two or three hillings should be
given, care being taken eaeli time to
keep the earth from getting iuto tho
crown of Hie plant. Celery raised lu
tho nuiniior described Is as much supe
rior to that found on the market as is
full ereiun cheese to the skinniest
skim milk product. The golden, self
blanching variety has proved most sat
isfactory. While In conversation with a lum
