My body was broken out all over with pimples and sores; and my flesh constantly itched. I heard of YAGER'S SARSAPARILLA WITH CELERY, and the wonderful cure it had made for others, and concluded to give it a trial. The results are most satisfactory.

My house for storing fruit is one that was on the premises and not built for the purpose. But I find it quite convenient. It is a stone build ing 26x34 feet, with good walls two feet thick, well laid in mortar, as shown in the illustration. To make it so I could hold fruit through the win ter, I lined it inside with matched lumber, making an air space of about ten inches between the wall and lin- IfL'wli EST BP FT I VERMONT FRUIT HOUSE. ing. It is a two-story house. I pro tect from cold by putting straw on upper floor about four feet thick when settled. It kept the fruit well. I make a fire in it only three or four times through, the winter, on account of extreme cold. I could, with but little expense, make it good for cold storage by put ting eight or ten 12-iach galvanized iron pipes through the upper floor, letting them down three or four feet, and filling from above with crushed ice and cheap fertilizer salt. I have used it as it Is, opening the doors nights to cool oft and keeping it closed during the day, except when putting in more fruit. I pick and put In barrels in the orchard and store them open. In rainy weather I can sort and pack for market. I usually sell to buyers, so they are off my hands and in market or cold storage, near market, by November 15. I have leldom kept a crop over.—Orange Judd Farmer. PLUMS FOR MARKET. There Are Hundreds of Varieties, Bnt Only a Fen Are Adapted (or General Cultivation. The number of known species of plums runs up into the hundreds, but smong those hundreds there are only a few that it will pay to do much with. But it requires a great deal of experimentationto find out the best that is in each species. Each species In turn is made to produce innumer able varieties, which may be in turn crossed with the seedlings of other species. If all the new varieties were named we would soon have chaos in the nomenclature. In addition the Dumber of would become so preat that the longest life would not suffice to become acquainted with them. It is, therefore, fortunate that tutting out of varieties is continually g-oing on. Recently in walking through a block of 500 seedling plum trees with Prof. Goff, of the Wiscon sin experiment station, he made the remark that of those 500 trees, all fruiting and bearing fairly good plums, not more than • dozen trees would be saved. The rest were to go Dnto the brush heap. He says we have too many varieties now, and that most of the varieties men are at tempting to grow should be discard ed. This phase of the subject is of interest to the plim student and is in encouragement, for it justifies the course of passing lightly over most of the varieties or forgetting them altogether and fixing the attention on the few varieties that have been proven to be good. For all practical purposes, therefore, it is possible for a man to become a plum expert with out devoting an entire life to the study.—Farmers' Review. Australian Fruit in Europe. Consul General Guenther writes from Frankfort that, according to German papers, South. Australian ap ples are now sold in the Vienna mar ket at from fiv« to ten cents each; choice ones even higher. The apples are juicy and of fine taste; they are packed and shipped in small, long boxes containing each 100 apples. Each apple is wrapped in tissue pa per, and they are packed in wood wool (excelsior) and the leaves of corn husks. They stand the sea transportation well and also the transport by rail from Hamburg to Vienna, which takes from five to six days. The apples are well-selected ones, and show no spots or damage from pressure. The History of Selection. It is plain that selection was not at all times done with such thought and skill as it is now. But ever since plants have been cultivated an evident improvemant has been going on for our benefit and fixed and valuable races of field plants, vegetables, flow ers and fruits were known to the old est nations and are mentioned by the oldest writers. Experience In Bean GroTvinn. In an experiment in the east bush beans were grown on the same land successively for 14 ytars, and In the last year the check crop was grown on new land. The yield on the old and new land was as 80 te 131, being that much in favor of the new land. It has been supposed that "white beans" would grow on any kind of soil.

HARSBERGER'S Christmas Carol. WINTER VEGETABLES. Sustentions fsr Constructing Cold Fiames Watch Will Answer All Ordinary Purposes. The frames should be In the warm est possible situation, facing south, or In that general direction. I con struct my hotbeds on a different plan from most others. I build a more permanent frame. First I set cedai posts the width of the bed, then nail on boards with an elevation of about eight inches on the back. The soil is dug out to a depth of 18 to 30 inches from the glass, to suit the crop to be grown. The earth is banked around the frame for protection. I construct frames as near air-tight as possible. It requires less protec tion during the severe freezing weather. The sash are thoroughly glazed and every crack Is puttied. The crack across the glass is run with mastica. My sash are mostly 4xß foot, with four rows of ten-inch glass. A bar 2x4 inches is placed between each sash. It is put down a little be low the edge of the top board, but even with the top of the lower edge of frame. I use a strip one inch thick the depth of the sash; it is nailed on top of the 2x4-inch bar, overjets the bottom of frame and is even with the top edge. I put on a cap board eight inches wide along the top. It is nailed to the back board of frame and the bars between the sash. This forms a perfect shelter for the sash to slide under, the frame being built about four inches wider than the length of the sash. I find this a great protection, as much heat escapes and much cold enters the crack between the back board and the sash if con structed in the ordinary way. I find there is very little necessity for mats or straw for a bed so constructed. Frames built after this plan will cost about five dollars per sash. With care they will last for years. I think every farmer ought to have a frame, if only a few sash. He can have let tuce, green parsley, celery, etc., all winter. If any surplus he can al ways dispose of it at a good price. I do not think a farmer k half living who does not have a few fresh vege tables on his table from his own frame at all times. We do not use as much manure in our beds as some other growers. I use leaves, as they retain the heat much longer than, the pure straw manure. My mixture is one load of manure and two loads of new oak leaves.—X. Vincent, Jr., in American Agriculturist. SPRAYING A SCIENCE. AU of Our Agricultural Colleges Are low Teaching: Hew to Do the Work Hlarht. The time has gone by when spray ing of fruit trees is considered a task that can, be successfully performed by any novice. When fruit growers first realized that their trees must be sprayed it was currently supposed that any hired man could take a spray pump of any make and cover the trees with a spray solution destruc tive to the insects and fungi, but harmless to the tree itself. This be lief was the oause of the many fail ures that were early recorded against the operators. Spraying is now recognized as a science, and all of our agricultural colleges are teaching how to do the work correctly. The advice is now given: "Do not trust an inexperienced man behind the noz zle of a sprayer." Most of the men that spray are mere bunglers at the business, having no complete concep tion of the great principles underly ing the operation. Spraying is rapid ly becoming a profession, and we pre dict that it will not be long before men skillful in spraying trees will be in demand both in the city and coun try. It is becoming evident that the owner of a small orchard can better pay an expert owning his own appa ratus to do the work than to himself invest in an outfit and trust his own experience.—Farmers' Eeview, Hornskrger's Racket Store Dazzling Display of Holiday Goods.

WERMAN, OF BALTIMORE, BAYS: Baltimore, Md., March 30. 1901. Gentlemen : — Being entirely cured of deafness, thanks to your treatment, I will now give you a full history of ray case, to be used at your discretion. About five years ago my right ear began to sing, and this kept on getting worse, until I lost my hearing in this ear entirely. I underwent a treatment for catarrh, for three months, without any success, consulted a num ber of physicians, among others, the most eminent ear specialist of this city, who told me that only an operation could help me, and even that only temporarily, that the head noises would then cease, but the hearing in the affected ear would be lost forever. I then saw your advertisement accidentally in a New York paper, and ordered your treat ment. After I had used it only a few days according to your directions, the noises ceased, and to-day, after five weeks, my hearing in the diseased ear has been entirely restored. I thank you heartily and beg to remain Very truly yours, F. A. WERMAN, 730 S. Broadway, Baltimore, Md.
