isTKAWBEitRT Beds. A joung cultivator wish
es several questions answend. First, as to the
unantity of strawberries wUch maybe raised
from an acre. Everything dermis on good cul
tivation, and much on selectingihe ri 'ht sorts.
; It has not been very unusual to st two hundred
j bushels per acre of the Wilson, Sut one hun
! dred U more common, even from tie test man-
; agcni'cnt . Many years ago, a neigiibo- raised on
j two-thirds of an acre which we sold hit,, at the
' rate of four hundred bushels per acr The
1 Wilson nrght have possessed more vigo- anj
' productiveness at that time than at present. we
estimated that a line of quart boxes might Uve
i been placed in contact between rows aud h.-ve
! been tilled from them. Second question Wha
! is the Ijest mulch for strawberries iu fruit ? An
' swer Rye straw, which is straight, smooth, and
keep; its place. Other stiff, clean straw answers
well. Fine tut grass rots ti soon. Third ques
tionDo yoa cut the runners ? Answer The
be.-t way is to cm them. Sotns sorts, as Triorophe
. ile Gaud, for in-tance, will not do well without ;
with Wiion ii is less important ; market garden
; eis generally adopt the matted row system,
; keeping them well cultivated between the rows,
and weeds and grass carefully cleaned out in the
j row as soon as berry season has passed. Cut---
! ting the runners gives heavier crops and larger
t berries, and ia markets where prices vary with
1 quality they are most profitable. Fourth qttes.
: tion Wle-n do you remove the winter mulching?
i Answer As soon as we wish to cultivate the
i ground, usually in April. Make the row3 clean,
j aud then replace the mulch as soon as the berries
l begin to form, to protect them from thp soil.

; ivi:Kr tiik Ci:i i.ak Clean. During these sui
I try days it is particularly healthful to keep the
basement rooms of the dwelling house clean, dry
and the air pure. Old boxes, barrels, and what
ever rubbish there may be which is not needed,
should be carried out, and the floor, walls and
ceilings carefully swept, and all the loose dirt
j from the bins where vegetables have ebon stored
j should also be taken away to the stable or
; garden. Have one or more windows open near
' ly all the time. Pure air is as needful in the
cellar as in the other rooms of the house. The
; causes of many of the diseasts prevalent at this
1 reason may undoubtedly be traced to the neglect
of the cellar. A circulation of fresh dry air is
needful for the preservation of the sills and floor
joists of our buildings. We have known the
! tbers of a comparatively new house to reqnire
I , . . , . .,
replacing at a heavy expense simply because the
I cellar windows were never opened. Whitewash
made from lime and water makes an excellent
dressing for cellar walls, and there is little dan
ger of applying it too often. Fine wire screens
fastened over or in place of the windows are very
useful in keeping flies, insects, and other vermin
from the cellar. The cost is trifling compared to
their value.
To Feki a Coi.t. It is the early eare of the
eo!t which makes or mars the horse. The dan
ger is generally in starving him than over-feeding
him. The point to be aimed at is to keep
him growing. lie may be fed from two weeks
old. At that time, in addition to the milk from
the mare, he should have a handful at first
oatmeal or oats, soaked in sweet cow's milk or
water. If the mare does not give mnch milk.
this may be gradually increasod up to two quarts
of oatmeal or oats in a few weeks, .no corn
should he given to a colt at any time, and all
the oats he will eat np clean and with an eager
appetite may be given without danger. He
should be brushed daily, so as to keep the skin
clean and free from scurf. It is well to have a
closed stall next to the mare for the colt, in
which he miy ran looe when not nt pasture.
