POTATOES FOR SEED.
rha Belatlv Merita of Planting- Cnt or
Wsols Tabara Bincla Era Cuttior-
Considerable discussion baa at various
times occurred concerning the relative
merits of planting cut or whole tubers,
but is yet undivided, each method hav
ing its advocate a fact which goes far
prove that it is of little consequence
which way is followed. The late Peter
Henderson said on this subject that the
best rule in his experienoe was to plant
the whole small tubers if fully matured.
and cut the larger ones, but in either case
tearing enough in bulk of the potato to
give sufficient substanoe to the plant.
METHOD OF SINGLE EYE CUTONQ.
Mr. E. S. Carman, who has produced
an liia rural farm at River Edge, N. J.,
some enormous potato yields, cuts his
potatoes. His method, brief! v summed
up, is: Wide trenches; a mellow bottom:
the seed pieces covered with two inches
af Boil; the fertiliser strewn eveolv upon
this; the trench filled with the soil as
loosely as possible and heaped up
shaped, so that it will settle to a level of
the soil on either side after a rain or so;
Alfred Rose, of Penn Yan, N. Y.. an
other successful potato grower, employs
seea cut to two eyes. To insure a eood
stand his seed is cut three or four weeks
previous to planting, and dusted well
with plaster when ready to plant. All
seea not sprouted is sorted out.
To those who use the cut seed. Prairie
rarmer cautions that there is such a
thing as so cutting the tuber as to at least
partially destroy the germ vitality of the
eye. The eyes have feeder filaments
leading from the center of the tuber and
the cut is therefore best made as shown
in the illustration, so as to preserve with
the eye as much feeder filament as possi
ble. The practice of cutting the end to
two eyes is now a common one, as is also
that of making the cuttings some da's
previous to planting.
A Mushroom Myth.
An English authority says that it is a
popular error that mushrooms grow to
their lull size during a single night and
that they vanish after the sun shines
upon them. He says: "They are rapid
in growth and rapid in decay; but the
same mushroom may be watched grow
ing and expanding for two or three days,
ana then gradually decaying away,
Much depends on the dampness or -dry
ness of the season. In some seasons thev
are exceedingly plentiful, while at other
times they are comparatively rare. This
also is believed to depend chiefly on cli
matic conditions. It is not unusual for
cultivated mushrooms to become attack
ed by a parasitic mold, which renders
them unfit for food. This misfortune
rarely happens to the wild form until it
is in process of decay. The catacombs
of Paris are noted for their production
of mushrooms in immense quantities.
From the Mery caves as many as 3,000
pounds are sometimes sent to market
daily. We have beard of a crop being
grown in a fiat box.
Preparing Pool try Manure. -
The best way to treat hen manure in tn
mix it with about twice its own bulk of
ibuck or gooa sou as fast as it is gathered.
First spread a layer of earth and on this
a layer of the manure, and so continue
until the pile is finished, always leavinc
a layer of the absorbent on top. There
is no objection to keeping it moist, but if
laid out on the ground uncovered there
will necessarily be a great deal of loss.
