FARM AND GARDEN.
How To Gnow TunzaosS.-The
tuberose, whieh is yearly planted in th<
majorIty of flower gardens, does not al
ways reward the expectant gardenes
with a yield of sweet-seented flowers
only a mass of rank green leave6 beinq
produced from the bulbs that wer
place. in one of the choice spots of ti)
flower bed. The cause of these fre,
quent failures, florists explain, Isi
vimple one., and onice understood, mua)
prevent the repetition of a barren plant.
Tuberoses, by Deing kept in too low i
temperature during winter, decay i
the centre suillelently to destroy the
flower germ. The bulbs, to isur(
bloom must be ke)t both dry and warm
from dtober until May.-As the out
ward aplpearance of the effected bulb,
resembles healthy ones, it is advised b3
well known autlorlties that the Illiti
ated, in all making a selection Iin the
spring, reject all bulbs that do not show
signs of vegetation from the centre of
the bulb, for while they will occasion
ally flower when ule centre does not
show green, they are always doubtful.
The mode of culture Is siple. After
theground has been prepared by being
spaded and manured, ser, 1,h bulbs six
inches apart and at least four I aches
below the surface.
COnN.-This is 010 of those crops
whieh require a warmu soil an(I whielh

ground may be preparet in scason to

and this Is slinily to give sulicient taait

agricultural jourals, tile aiverage yield
of this gralii uas been doub ed. A yield
of 70 or 80 bushels is now secured
where 30 or 40 bushels used to satisfy
farmera., 'The use of fertilizers and

We assert that there is no known remedy that
possesses the curative power over these dis

cures, step by step. surely, from the founda.

sound condition. The wnstem of the body
