1NTItODU110 MiW VAlIETtES.-The
reedamen and nurserymen are annually
introducing to notice now varieties of
fruits and vegetables, but such work
should not be left entirely in their
hands, as it is the duty of farmers, gar
deners and fruit-growers to experiment
in such matters in order to increase the
hardiness and yield of all plants that
are cultivated for profit. Perhaps the
reason why the introduction of now va
rieties is not interesting to farmers is
because they consider the matter as
something difficult, which, no doubt, is
true, but is'as easy to them as it is to
seedsmen. If we coasider whest, for
instance, the work of improvement con
sists of nothing more than the selection
of the piumpest grains from the largest
heads and best stalks, which plan, if
continued for a few years, results in a
variety hotter adapted to the locality in
which it is grown, and which will yield
more and producJ a better quality of
gram. Vegetables of all kinds may be
improved by this melhod (selecting the
best) but even the growth, shape and
other characteristics may be changed.
The greater number of our varieties of
fruit comes from seedlings. The apple
is one of the best and hardiest fruits we
have, the numerous varieties all coming
from the one source-the crab apple
and though each variety is distint in
habit of growth, shape, size and period
of riiening, yet if we plant the seeds of
the best of them we may not get any.
thing resembling that irom which the
seed was taken. . The young trees may
all prcdueo crab apples, or there may
be among them something superior to
any thing heretofore known. Of ten over
one thousand trees have been used in a
single expel intur, td, among vegeta
bles, a certain seedsman could only find
one good potato Irom 8000 plants; but
that particulsar kind amply rewarded him
for ail t,,o time and labor th-rt had been
emptlo3 cu in toe task of selection.
Fa Iners are not inclined to try expe
rinienta witu Iruit trees, as time and pa
tiniice are requir.d, while iturselymen
aue particular to tuko advantage of all
oppoi tui,ities; but farmers can, at least
wN ot vegetabies, select the most perfect
seeds irutm the best plants. So far as
the snali fruits are concerned, hey have
better oppoituniiies, for it is not re
quired to wait a long time for results.
The strawbeiry can be grown from sced
but tne najority of the best kinds are
due t. chance seedlings, which, grow
ing in some unobserved locality, are ae
ciueitatlly discovered to be of superior
quality. and receive the proper care aid
attteution necessary to propagation. As
a snglo stratwuerry will produce a large
nuiuber of plants irom seed there can
be no possible limit to the improvement

Lkatou Stfautnwr.--The best lemoiis
come to us from Florida, and the next l;
in quality from Palermo in S3iily. U
Choose those having a thin, smooth f,
skin, large and solid, in preference to t
thick, rough-skinned ones, which are ti
almost sure to prove spongy and dry. r
Select from those that have never been t
unwrapped, wash them lightly in cold h
water, wipe dry, wrap in clean, soft o
paper and keep in a cool, dry place.
This treatment removes any stale flavor '
communicated by decaying fruit or the y
odor of the box. The best oranges for
this purpose are those from Jamaica, y
and next the Floridas, Buy them, like d
the lemons, in their original wrappers; fc
wash and repack in like manner.
The materials and proportions for the ri
syrup are follows:, Three pints lemou
juice, one pint orange juice and six
pounds granulated sugar, This wiil T
require about three dozen lemons and h
half a dozen oranges, all of large size. ai
With a flue grater rub off the thin yel- f<
low rind of the fruit, but none of the
white; the lemons and oranges separ
ately, of course. Mix the gratings well
with four times their weight of pulver
ized white sugar and put into bottles, ,
which keep corked when not in use
You have two excellent, pure, over- J
ready flavorings for cakes, pies, pud- n
dings, blanc-manges, ices, and whatever n
else you like. I
Now pare off the white rind, scraping I
it clean down to the pulp. Out the I
fruit in half, pick out all the seeds, 1
squeeze out the juice with a wooden t
squeezer and strain it as fine as possible
through a flannel jelly-bag. Measure il
it, add to each quart of the mixed juices t
three pounds of sugar; stir it until it is B
a perfoetly clear sirup. pour into wide
mouthed bottles or jars, brimful, and ,i
keep in a dark, cool place until they r
are clear and free from spooks; careful
ly rnmove the soum, cover tightly and
keep in a cool cellar or in an ice-chest. r
Thus made the sirup will retain its b
freshness for any length of time. The a
aboe recipe should yield about four 0
quarts, or suflicient for sixty glasses of i
very rich sherbet. It may be mixed s
either with ice-water, as a cooling drink, h
or with hot water as a night cap. Made ?
in the large way the last trial by the f
writer was as follows: One box lemons,
300 large and line; 50 oranges; yield, a
12 quarts lemon juie; yield, 4 quarts
orange juice; add 48 pounds of sugar;
product, 30 quarts sirup. It is always b
wolcome and popular at ladies' Fairs ?
especially when served by a pretty '"Re
becca at the Well," in turban and flow
ing robes, with a rockery, ferns and a
never-failing bowl of the sherbet at her t
side. If you desire to give it an Orien- 1
tal, Arabian Nights' flaver, add to each t
quart a teaspoonful of rose water or
orange flower water, to your taste.
All this may seem a needless amount -
of labor, but it is amply repaid by the
superior yield and quality of the tyrup.
''he seeds are bitter, and if any are
crushed in the selueezer, or remain a
short time in the juice, they impart
their flavor to it. So of the poel; if the
truit is pressed without removing it the s
juice is embittered ly it, moreover, it
absorbs a portion of the juice andi soI
causes waste. Lastly, the oil of ihe t

The use of white-lead paint has long
been known to involve injuriotls efleots.
The only substitute for this material
until recently, has been sine oxide.
Among the recent inventions in England

The natural sulphide of zino-blend-is
commonly rather translucent, anu vari
ous in color, from a dingy white to a
atone color, shading off to a reddish
brown, sometimes appearing opaque,
with yellow, green or black tinges. The
excellence of the chemically pure white
sulphide, however.induced a lengthened
series of experiments to accomplish ar
tificially the chemical process of making
zinc suiphide of the purest white, and
with the most satisfactory results. In
vestigations of this zinc sulphide, or
rather oxy-sulphide, show that it has a
highly preservative action in preserving
*od, etc., from decay, and it unites
with the fibres with which it comes in
contact, forming permanent bodies with
them. The peculiarly small affinity
witich zinc has for combining with car
bonio acid prevents to a great extent
the formation of carbonates, and also
arrests the saponification of the oil long
before any such reaction with carbonate
of lead can take place.
