STRAWBERRIES. f
It is uot generally known among
farmers and village residents that there
male and female strawberry plants ;
and that the two sexes must grow near
each other, or the female (pistilate)
plants will produce veiy impèrfect fruit
little of it. One male (stauiioate)
four pistillates will suffice,
when staminates only are grown they
produce full crops of themselves ; and
most of our best strawberries are of the
male sex
sight by the blossom
having a small delicate flower without
stamens ; and the males a much larger
flower covered with stamens. It used
to be claimed that the most productive
varieties, when fertilized by staminates,
the pistillates ; but my experience
contradicts that theory ; hut it is im
portant, when one obtaius new varieties,
to ascertain the sex, and set according
ly. The fertilizing of the pistillates is
effected by bees and other insects carry
ing the pollen of the male flowers to the
female flowers. The th.ee most popu
lar market varieties in the vicinity of
New York, are the Wilson, Jucunda
and Charles Downing, all having stam
inates.

THE ACTION OF PLASTER.
The action of plaster (gypsum) is
involved in a good deal of mystery.
The theory has been held by many
scientific men, that it merely attracts,
and absorbs the ammonia in the atmos
Prof' Liebig, the noted Ger
agricultural cbimist, held this view
of its action ; but whatever its virtues
may be, it shows the best results when
applied upon the surface of the ground,
and especially on grass lands, clover
in particular The quantity may be
100 to 200 pounds per acre, applied in
the spring, avoiding sowing any on
low, wet lands. Plaster is also a valu
able fertilizer wheu applied to corn

.which were applied one year only,
and the grass carefully weighed the
following three seasons, with the fol
lowing results : On the plot to which
fertilizer was applied,
the totsl weight of hay yield per acre

pounds. Where twenty loads of horse
where laid od. the yield was
14,686 pounds, a gain of4,224 ponnds
From this statement it appears that two
bushels of plaster produced over two
thirds as much increase, as 20 loads o»
horse manure, worth ten times as much
as the plaster cost. Old pasture fields
often be made to produce luxuriant
grasses by the use of plaster; but all
lands are not equally benefited by its
application.

sweet variety being considered best by
those who have grown it. When a
small farm, and is short of
good pasturage, it is decidedly the
cheapest way to soil his cows for a few
months. He can commence on oats
sown very early, then feed clover, and
finish on corn sown at different times,
so that the last crop will be cut as late
.the season will admit. Cows that
are soiled should have a yard to exer
cise in ; and their uiauure should be
gathered daily, and placed where it will

My conclusions were that,
by having comfortable etatbles and
giving the animals good feed and care,
the product of cows by soiling could be
increased 33 per cent.
OLD ORCHARDS
In many places old orcheards exist
which bear but little fruit, and very
poor in quality. Many of the trees,
perhaps, are decaying and uselessly
number the ground. We look around
expecting to see a fine thrifty young
orchard growing up, with choice graft
ed fruit, to replace the old one ; but
the young trees do not exist on hun

farmers knew enough to renew their
fruit orchards, as it is written of barren
trees, "cut them down, why cumber
tlicv the ground." yet here in the
United States, in the nineteenth cen
tury, with horticultural papers offered
to farmers for a mere trifle, they do not
seem to know enough, in many places,
to cut down an old fruit tree, when it is
utterly useless, and plant
its place, or rather in some new place,
as it is not advisable to set a young)

HUNGARIAN GRABS
Hungarian grass, or millet, makes
excellent hay, if cut before the seed
ripens. Sow from the last week in May
June 10, at the rate of half a bushel
of seeds to the acre; and it will be
ready to cut in August. Sometimes
three or four tons of hay are grown per
acre ; and it never injures stock if cut
when the seed just assumes its full form.
It may be sown earlier, but it requires
«quick vegetation to grow up ahead of
„,'id grasses and weeds, which early
sowing does not always effect,
