From now until the last of October
is the best time for planting. The
strawberry plant delights in a cool
season and if set during the fall will
J become well established by spring and
be able- to resist the crought which
occurs more or less every summer.
W Many failures in planting are due to
m the fact that the plants are put out
too late in the season.
In selecting plants for the new bed,
only the strongest and best of the present
year's runners siould be used. To
HiRtin^nish new nlants from the old,
L the roots are always white in color
^L^while those of old plants are always
fclack, It is desirable, previous to
y planting, to remove all the younger
W leaves, allowing only a few of the oldf
er ones to remain, which will greatly
k lessen evaporation. Also the ends of
the roots should be sheared in to about
one-third to one-half if they are very
long. Wihile planting, carry tie plants
in a pail of water.
w. There are many methods of plantL.
ing. A common mistake of amateurs
B?is to scoop out a shallow hole and
L; thrust the plant in it, leaving the roots
W a crumpled moss with their tips near
the surface where they quickly dry
y out. To avoid this, make a deep hole
B until a spade or long-poiniea-trowei,
W insert the roots and spread them out
W fan shape, allowing them to hang, down
r full length. In this way, every part
of the root system will be in contact
with the soil and kept constantly
moist. Bo careful not to set the plants
* too high or too low. If the crown or
^ heart is below the surface, after the
;Soil settles it is smothered; if mucn
W w above, the roots are dried out. The
aim should be to put the crown just
at the surface.
In the sprirg, runners will begin to
form. There are various methods of
training thesa runners all of which
have strenuous advocates. However,
for the home grower, the? hill system
is undoubtedly the most satisfactory.
^'^.The pjaiits *are placed fourteen to
^ eighteen inches apart in the row a^u
all runners kept removed except a
few, trained with the row to produce
new plants. Tnere will not be quite
so much fruit produced as with some
of the matted row systems, but it will
be much larger and of superior quality.
The first season all the fruiting
stems are pinched off as they appear
bo that the entire strength of the plant
f will be directed to the development of
the .crown and foliage parts. By the
end of the season, the plants should
havo thir?k hroad crowns, each hold
ing tile rudiments of several stalks of
berries and containing plant food to
aid in the production of a miximum
crop the second season from planting.
A strawberry bed may bear from
three to five crops if given extra good
care, but it is better to allow the
plants to fruit only twice. As the- bed
gets older, the plants become weakened
and often diseased. For the highest
grade berries, the plants should
be allowed to fruit only once and a
new bed set annually.

was said that attorneys for the convicted

drafting a bill of exceptions, on the
strength of which they will continue
their fight before the highest tribunal

The bill of exceptions, it was said,
will embody practically the same allegations
of error contained in the motion
for a new trial. These charges,
among numerous other counts, prejudice

near the court room had influenced the
verdict. Counsel for Frank also contended
