the farmer's wife and daughters more
attractive are the purpose of this new
division of the department*.
Professor John Hamilton, formerly
state secretary of agriculture of Penn
sylvania, Is at the head of the division
of farmers' Institutes.
The work of the women's Institutes
is perhaps broader In its scope than
that for the men. It Is certainly more
varied. In twenty-one states of the
Union they have begun the work al

agricultural state in the Union will

Natural Hot Water Products Near th?
What la perhaps the most remarka
ble farm In the world Is located In
Alaska on a small tributary of (be
Tauana river, only 125 milt s south "f
the arctic circle. It is owned ami
managed by J. P. Karsbner. Kurshuer
a few years ago was engaged In hunt
ing gold when he came across some
thing which astonished him very
much. It was a little stream of bol
water. lie traced the stream to a
spring, which was likewise hot. and
It presently became Obvious that a
considerable area was underlaid by
such springs. Promptly deciding that
this was a discovery more profitable
than a gold mine, Karsbner gave up
prospecting, obtained a quantity ol
vegetable seeds of various kinds and ,
started in to raise garden truck.
The temperature in that region
sometimes falls to 05 degrees below
zero In winter, but a natural system
of hot water heating, free of cost, was
Just the thing for truck gardening
near the arctic circle, where potatoes
have a market value of LT, cents a
pound and other vegetables bring
prices In proportion.
The Karsbner farm occupies a fiat
area with a convenient slant toward
the south. Hot water oozing out of tin'
.ground forms three small streams,
which empty into the nearby river.
The warm spring extends over a dis
tance of about a mile. and. as the
owner says, "the heat In the ground
has to be felt to lie believed." lie
adds: "I have never seen vegetables
grow as they do here. The place has ]

no frost when it Is freezing every

several kinds are grown, some of them

climate by starting them in tin cans
in the house. When the weather be
comes warm enough he transplants
them to the open.
Mr. Howard's market garden Is the
most successful to be found north of
the arctic circle. lie protects his
young cabbages from frost on cold
nights by covering them with beer bot
ties, the bottoms and necks of which
' have, been knocked oil'. In these "jack

In central Florida pineapples are
largely grown nowadays under sheds
of lattice. The e sheds, elevated on
posts at a height of about seven feet
from the ground usually, in some In
stances cover us much as ten acres of
land. Their main object is to protect
the growing fruit against frost, though

under them are more delicate in tex

In market gardens near Boston inel- j
ons are grown in slings so that they !
will ripen evenly. Muskmelous are
grown on arbors, each fruit being sup- '
ported by a piece of board about a ?
foot square, on which it is turned ev<
ery day or two. Strawberries are
grown in pots in greenhouses, the ? ins
tors of fruit being supported by wires.
