from the 'fact that they bloom nine

are the ones we prefer for this bed.
The tall ones are effective when grown
as single specimens, making good sized

is the unpleasant smell of its pretty.
S EBERRY BUSH.
The New,% o
and Where o Cut.
Gooseberry fruit is produced from
lateral buds on one-year-old wood and.
also on short spurs on wood two or
more years old. The same spur may
produce fruit for three or four years if
the strength of the bush is maintained
by proper fertilizing and pruning. The
first two crops from a given spur are,
however, usually the best.
agooseberry bush each season appears
as new branches arising from buds on
the previous year's growth of the

canes already present or as new shoots
arising from the crown of the bush.
r The new branches on the old canes
will roduce fruit from their lateral
"6tlics e .-ear following the one in
which they develop. The new shoots
foom. thd crown will become fruiting
canes :when two years old if allowed
Sto grow. The new branches on a com
y aratively young cane are much stron
ger than those on an old cane. 4s soon
- - as a cane shows signs of weakening It
should be removed and a new shoot
left to develop into a cane to take its
place. If the bush is in e-normal condi
tior, he number of young shoots left
should be .-ust equal to the number of
olid canes removed.
A symmetrically pruned gooseberry
bush-will consist of from six to a doz
en or so canes of 'all ages from one to
about five years, and there will be ap
proximately an equal number of canes
of each age.
in addition to the cutting away of
old canes and superfluous young
shpots the young wood on the old canes
iCthat are left is thinned out and headed
in. The ~branches which are left are
shortened back to from eight to twelve
inches. A new shoot whieh is to be left
to develop into a cane should be head
ed back to a height of from sixteen to
twenty inches, says an American Agri
culturist writer, whose plan of pruning
is given above.

Wornout Fields - What Plows Are
Made For-Annual Subsolling.
Many fields that are worn out and
unproductive may be largely restored
by a little scientific plowing. Some
of our farmer friends will smile aloud
at the idea of scientific faring, and
yet it may be made a scienstific process
and add onet-more proof
value of sie ' farming. Plows
are m za bor the special purpose of
mee ning the soil. And deepening:
the soil and exposing more of it to the
influence of air and water make fer
tilizing elements available that were
totally useless before. The land may
be subsoiled or simply turned up from
a greater depth than before, and this
subsoil, containing large amounts of
fertility, will become a rich foraging
ground for the feeding rootssof plants.
It is easily possible to exhaust the up
per five Inches of surface soil, so that
it will produce but little more than
nothing. If a little of tig: subsoil. is
turned up each year, tMr necessity for
purchasing fertilizr will disappear.
Therefore the 1,reparation of the soil
is of greate-r importance than the after
culjyti6n, because the maximum
erops cannot be grown without proper
preparation, and no amount 'of culti
vation c-an make up for this error. I
Intensive Cotton Growing.
Our cotton growers should adopt the
plan of growing twenty bales on twen
ty acres instead of twenty bales on
forty-five acres as heretofore. Better
preparation, better seed and better
cultivation will do it, for it has done it
many times. And then the war with,
the boll weevil will be reduced to prac
tical limits; also this plan~ will leave
more acres for grain and forage plants.
True, we have had so much rain that
fall and winter plowing has been prac
tically prohibited, but the ground will
be dry enough to plow after awhile,
and then the work should be pushed
if it requires fourteen hours' work per
day, for the walking delegate does not
visit the rural districts.-Farm and
Butter Without Churning.
Butter without churning. They call-It
selective absorption. Four thicknesses
of Turkish toweling are first put into a
shallow pan,. over which and formed to
shape of pan and to fit inside~ of it
snugly down on the absorbing toweL, is
a white, heavy blotting paper.' Ifito the
paper pan the cream is poured axnd se
lective absorption does the rest. The
water, casein and salts held in solution
in the cream are absorbed by the paper
and passed through into the ~to-wel. The
butter fat not being in solution, but fat
ty and globular, cannot follow into the
blotter and remains on top to be rolled
off in a sheet of butter paste at the will
of the operator, who can ~now work in
the salt and form and fashion to his
will. Churned butter is carefully han
dled not to destroy the grain either in
churning or working, but from this but
ter paste of the new process the grain
develops as the butter is worked. The
absorption is completed insabout thirty
minutes and it is claimed for the meth
od that all the butter fat to the utter
most is recovered from the blotter,
which it has not been found possible to
do heretofore with the-6churn. The but

At thgb,,.eent meeting of the New
Tork tate Dairymen's association Mr.
H. E. Cook of Denmark, N. Y.. read a
paper on "The Development of Fancy
it Mr. Cook said that in the past decade
a rapid development has taken place In
y fancy cheese and proprietary foods
made from milk. The state of Wiscon
y sin leads today, with three-fifths of the
total output of fancy cheese. Nev
h York Is second, with one-third. The
center of the fancy cheese Industry is.
in Greene county, Wis., where the ipeo
Upie are mostly Swiss. The fancy cheeses
are In growing demand, and the Indus
try should receive more attention.
This brand of Swiss cheese comes
Wwithin the limit of ordinary expendi
dtures for cheddar cheese and therefore
hwithin the means of many factories.
'The cheese is made in kettles now
tr manufactured with steam connection.
n The curd is soaked at a high tempera
r'ure, and a large waste of fat takes
15 place, which is saved in the better
'equipped factories by passing the whey
0 through a separator, or It is hand.
Ly skimmed. The cheese requires from
d seventy-five to a hundred days for cur
ing. First It is put in a cellar with .a
temperature of G5 to 70..degrees, next
in a temperature of 630 to 65 degrees
and finally in a temperature not above
i60 degrees. It Is a sweet milk produc
stion, yet there are certain ferments ap

Lflavor and especially the "eyes," for
dwhich It is noted.
ee I am of the opinion that bacteriolog

these ferments not unlike the control
swe now exercise in cheddar cheese.
