bearing of the bunch grape make It
easy to prune and the work can be
done much more systematically than
with most other fruits. Furthermore,
it will stand very severe pruning with
out injury. The fruit is borne on new
shoots from the preceding year's
growth and unless the vine is con
tinually cut back, the fruiting area
will become farther removed from the
main stein each year and will produce
long, naked canes, which serve no
purpose other than to convoy plant
food to the more remote fruit-bearing
parts. Moreover, if the vine is left to
itself, more fruit will form than the
plant can properly develop. The im
portant objects in pruning, then, are
to get the most bearing wood in the
smallest space and to limit the bear
ing wood according to the ability of
the vine to produce well developed
fruit. Not infrequently vines are al
lowed to retain too much bearing wood
and there is a consequent waste of
energy in the production of many
small, inferior bunches. For best re
suilts. our common varieties more than
four years old should be pruned so as
to bear not more than from seventy
to one hundred clusters.
The method of pruning is determin
ed in part by the kind of training
practiced. There are several good
systems. One of the simplest, which
is also one of the best for the South.:
is that known as the double Kniffin
system of training, in which are de
veloped two trunks, each of which
carries two arms trained to a two

SPRING ONION POINTERS
Some Practical Suggestions About
How and When to Plant Seeds
and Sets for Beat Onions.
Onions may be growni in spring from
seed1 or from sets. Hlowever, spring
planting of seedI is not generally so
satisfactory and sets are recommend
ed for the man who neglected to plant
in fall and wvho wants early onions.
For best results with seed, plant
them In October, In order that the
plants may become established before
severe winter- weather begins and that
the onions may grow off rapidly in
spring andl mature early in June.
Still, if seed are planted very early
in spring andl conditions are favor
able, they will make good onions, al
though they will be smaller and later
than those from fall-sown seed.
Onions should be planted on ver-y
sandly loam, After the land has been
thoroughly prepared by deep plowing
and repeated harrowing, apply ferti
lzer- andl manure biroadcast and har
row into the first three or four inches
of soil very thoroughly. Lay off rows
fifteen inches apart, plant the seed in
the drill, and cover the seed to a depth
of one-half to three-fourths of an
inch. When the young seedlings ap
pear, cultivate frequently in order to
dlestroy weeds and maintain moisture.
Thin out the onions so as to leave
them standing three or four inches
apart in the row.
To grow onions from sets, prepare
and fertilize the land as when plant
ing the seed and plant the sets just as
soon01 in spring as soil conditions will
permit, Plant them three to four
inches apart in rows fifteen inches
. White Pearl and Prizotaker are the
two most reliable varieties for this
Sets are more convenient for the
\home-gardener,. but for a commercial
onion planter, seed-planting is to be
preferred, because onions grown from

injured. The following winter (after
constructing the trellis) remove the
weakest of the three, canes and cut
back those remaining,.one at the first
wire and the other at the top wire.
Securely tied to the wit'es, they form
the permanent trunks of the vine.
In the third year, select two strong
canes coming out near the extremity
of each trunk and train them along
the wires in opposite directions to
form arms. Then shorten them back
to a length of two, three, or four feet,
this depending on the vigor of the
vine. All other canes are cut off close
to the trunk.
Pruning in the fourth and subse
quent years consists in cutting back
new canes to two buds or entirely re
newing the arms by cutting them out
and training new canes to take their
places. It is not always _possible to
renew an arm, because of the prob
able lack of a strong cane to take its
place. On the other hand, the prac
tice of cutting back canes to two
buds, continued a long time, will
cause a thick, objectionable mass of
spurs to accumulate along the arms.
The most desirable way is to combine
the renewal plan with the spur meth
od and thereby suit the pruning to
the vigor and general form of the vine.
In cases where it sems best to prune
an arm to spurs, thin them to a dis
tance of six to eight inches apart to
prevent the setting of more fruit than
the vine can properly develop.
The best time to prune the bunch
grape is in spring, just before the buds
come out. Do not delay until the
season is too far advanced. That
pruning produces results is shown in
the accompanying illustration, the
only difference between these two
bunches being that the vine of one
was pruned, while that of the other

REPAIRING FARM MACHINERY
Don't Walt Until Spring Rush Begins
But See to It Beforehand That im
plements are In Good Condition.
Have you forgotte about that brok
en piece, lost bolt, or loose nn't on one
of the implements that you intended
attending to durinug winter? There is
still plenty of time for such things,
but it will be unwise to let them wait
until the spring rush of work begins
and hurr-y calls for the machinery
come with it. Remember the "stitch
in time" andl use the cold, rainy (lays
for overhauling broken implements
and sharpening dull blades.
Why wait until your oats are ready
to cut before pulling out your binder
and finding that there- is a new piece
to be ordered? This may cost you a
week or two of valuable- time and af
ter you have waited impatiently
through several days of fine weather,
it is as likely as not that rain will be
gin to fall. When you order repairs
at such a time, you will find that oth
ers are doing likewise. The manufac
turers are rushed with orders and the
delay is often such that you are driven
to purchase a new machine. Now
is the time to inspect your equipment
andl put in your orders for necessary
Keeping a machine well repaired

After inspecting an. implement,
tightening nuts, renewing broken
parts, and sharpening dull blades, a
coat of paint should be applied. It
will prevent the iron from rusting and
the wood from'decaying and will pro.
long the life of an implement several
years. For painting, there is nothing
better than red loadl and linseed oil.

Chester Boy Enjoys Stay.
Chester.-A letter was received
from J. L. Glenn, Jr., by relatives
which gives an interesting account of
his doings since he left Oxford uni
versity at the beginning of the
Christmas vacation. le has been in
France during that time with head
quarters in Paris and has been operat
ing a motor car for French army bur
geons, his duties being mostly to
transport surgeons from one hospital
to another. He writes that he has
had several splendid trips and has
enjoyed the scenery and the oppor
tunity to become intimately acquaint
ed with the French people. He was
provided with a car of one of the
leading French makes, and with the
splendid roads that France possesses
has greatly enjoyed his work. He
wrote that he would return to Oxford
between January 20 and February 1 to
resume his studies.
Revenue Officers Busy.
Greenville.-R. Q. Merrick, internal
revenue officer with headquarters in
Greenville, has with his assistants
raided 27 illicit distilleries during the

the total value of this property
amounting to a considerable' figure.
In addition to breaking up the Mutfits,
thousands of gallons. of .beer or' liG~or

stills Jocatedt was large, the number
of' men arlrested was small, not more
than five having been caught. Since
