[ For this reason the grower may al low it to hang on the vine until fully ripe and can send It to a distant market and feel sure that it will ar rive in good condition. I have seen it bear crops that could not but sat isfy any grower, but It is not reliable as a producer. Its failures are usu ally attributed to a lack of hardiness, and in a way this is correct, but when we consider that the variety has borne some splendid crops in the north, we must look into the matter in another light and realize that its lack of hardiness is caused by a weakness of foliage, which in an unfavorable season leaves the vine too weak to withstand the cold of a severe winter. What we want Is a variety which has none of the faults mentioned above and the near est we have come to it, to my knowl edge, we have In a seedling at present known by the state experiment sta tions and others as Riehl's N. 10. It is a seedling of Niagara and to light about ten years ago. even more vigorous and fully hardy as Concord. Fruit is jet black I« color and just a shade came It is as smaller than Concord, ripens one week be fore Moore's Early and In quality is perfection for a grape of its color. The skin, though very thin, is tough, so that if not molested by birds or otherwise, it will hang on the vine until it dries up. Another point In its favor is that It sticks tightly to the bunch and never shatters. This variety is not yet on the market, but Is beyond question one of the good things that the public will have the benefit of.

Mr. Blatchley was strongly in fa j vor of the local institute. I A. E.

Mr. Gipson urged the holding throughout the county, and of pecially securing practical, ful men and of institutes es success women to take part. He thought attention should also be paid to the social features of these meetings.
