Strimbcrrlcs for Mnrkct.
It cortalnly docs not pny woll to grow
Btrnwbcrrica for mnrkct iu Ihc ordlnary
way. You tnlght mnko n ccnt n qunrt

way lo mnko markctiug strawberries

nnrne and nddrcBB on ovory packago,
nnd you will couimnud tho vcry highcat
price. Thero aro plenty of amall bcr
riea on tho markct, but you muat havo
n better articlo than anybody cUc, or
you wi.l gct tho same low prico thnt
others do. Try to accure tho nearby
local markct, ratber than ahip to strnn

give better mcnaurc, put them up in a
more attractivo ahnpe, and aro a good
Ealeaman, you may aell berrics for
twelve, aixtecn, or oven twenty nnd
twenty-flvo centa. Thia ia an cxnmple
of tho vnlue of intelligence. Aa we
said Inat week, tho man who uaea hia
intollect ia tho man who will auccecd.
It ia tho man who reada, who thinka,
who plan8, nnd who usea good judg
mcnt who will gct on in farming in tho
future. He muat work, but it ia tho
man who worka wiaely whoae worktella
the moat. A man with a mnchine nnd
& horae or two can do vastly more work
than the mnn alone. That mnchine ia
tho product of braina, intcllect, intelli
gence, nnd tho mnn who uscs tho mn
chine mnkca hia horae do what he onco
would hnvo had to hnve dono or hired

front in fnrming, nnd the mnn who haa
the beat mind nnd uaea it the best will
make the moat aucceaaful fnrmer.
Lntc Forage Crops.
Most fnrmcra gct through haying
about July 20 to 30. Then thero is
time to put aome forage crop, but few
know what to put in bo late. Few
Vermont farmera care to sow turnipa,
it i3 too late for millet or Ilungnrinn,
and they do not know whnt elao can bo
put in after July 20 or August 1. A
late bulletin of Cornell Univeraity Ex

suggeats a new late forage crop, pca8
and barley. Wo had intended to aow

It Bcems, howovcr, thnt they will, nnd
thnt we cnn get a lnte forage crop by

dried fodder of tho very beat quality,
and when grown upon land flttcd in
cropa. Threo tona or moro to tho acro
of dried fodder ia not an unuaunl crop
and thoro ia yet nmplo timo to grow a
full crop of either of tho above-namcd
plants. Tho millets bcing eapecially
hot wenthor nlauta do not need to bo

the flrat of July, and oata or narloy
will havo plenty of timo to maturo bui-
flr.lnntlv for fodder. TheBO cropa will
not nuito take tho nlace of a eood corn
crop, for that, when cured in tho ailo, is
tho ideal cron of New Eneland. Tho
ncreapo of reccnt vears should bo
doubled and tho crop mainly grown by
mnchinery. Tho next beat cropa nre

land intended for corn or potatocB
ahould bo at once aeeded to ono of
theae crona.
If theao cropa aro aown in auch a way
aa to produco a maximum yield it will
bo better to plow and aeed to graaa
after tho cron ia taken oll than to un
dertake to aeed with tho crop. A catch
of errnBB can freauentlv be aecured with
either of theao cropa when aown early
in the seaaon and aeeded thlnly, but,
except on very moist land, would not
be advisablo now. Tho extra amount
of fodder that can be grown without
any regard to tho grasB crop will go a
long way in tho expenBo of plowing
and aeeuing later in the season when
tho Btand of grass will be practically
aasurcd. In farming, as in other mat
ters, it is better to do one thing well
than to half do two things, which flnds
an application in this matterof growing
forage crops. Wo havo Been a light
vield of fodder and a poor atand of
graaa in trying to nccompliah both at

Cobn. Tbo doinand on snot la aulet. but
tbo markot IioIJb about Btoady, with buyera
paying riuotattona as auppues are neeuou.
Ciieese. Hocelnts for expott tbis week
woro 2,397 boxcs, Tbo arrivals bavo been
llboral of lato and domand bas boon so alack
tbat a Iarco sumilv baa accumulated on ro-
ceivers' bands.
Oats. Trado ls nulet ln all deDartmonts
of tbo market, but Reneral values aro about
steady. Tbo export movemout yot bolda
on well. Buyera on spot aro oporatlng
alowly at about tbo aamo rango of prices.
Eaas. Receiots bavo boon beavv and a
large proportlon of tbo arrivals bavo been
moro or lesa affectcd by beat. Tbero bas
bcon a fair deniand for cbolce frosb stock
at about formor prlcoa but for tbe general
nin ot western wo navo bau a very uuii
market for tbe past few days.
HAY. Thoro ls yot a dull demand for hay
and prices are weak In tbo face of tbe moro
liberal recelpts. Tbis doos not apply to
fancy bay howevcr, aome cars even yet be
ing Bold above quotatlona. The aupply of
tbo lower and medium gradea ls oxcosbIvo,
and prices on auch rango ln favor of tbo
Flouk. Flour contlnues slow, and tho
market cloaes easler, althougb botb wheat
and llour bavo shown bigber coat than laat
week. Buyera bavo no confldence ln future
bigber prlcen, and aro operatlng from timo
to timo in a moderate way as tbey need snp
pllea. Tbls makes somethlng doing all ot
tbe time, but the market Iacks llfe. Prices
aro not materlally cbanged.
Buttkb. Recelpts are atlll heavy, but
tbero bas been a steady fair demand for
atrlctly flne freah stock at full former prlcea.
Somo of tbe late arrivals of western cream
ery aro sbowlng up more or lesa sour and
summery, bowever, and auch lots have to
be sold at eaay prices. The market for
northern creamery has been somewbat lr
regular, owlng to the fact that comparatlve
ly higher prices are obtalned in tbe country
than can be reallzed hero.
LrjMBER, The movement in spruce 1am
ber bas been hardly any greater this week
than laat. The dealera are not very anxioua
to buy, as they aro not doing much busineaa
tbemaelves. Tbe month of June, while bet
ter than May, was, bowever, disappolntlng.
Some few yards had a good trade, but tbe
majority pronounce busineaa below tbe av
erage. What makes tbe sltuation all the
worse is tbe fact tbat so many cargoes aro
comlng here. As it 1p, bowever, tbe re
celpts aro not as largo as they were a year
ago tbis time. Prlcea, bowever, are full as
low as they were then,
Wool. The bottom of the wool market
was reacbed ln August, 189C, juat before the
Vermont electlon. At that time flne staple
Wyomlng wool was aold ln tho Boaton mar
ket at 30 eents the scoured pound. On Au
guat 29, 1806, we atated tbat prices then rnl
Ing were tbe lowest llkely to be known foi
ageneration, and expressed the bellef tbat
with tbo defeat of Bryanism, flrst in Ver
mont and then in the natlon, that wool
would steadlly improve in price. The event
bas jastified absolutely onr ludgment. Tbis
week flne Idabo staple haa been sold ln Boa
ton on a baais of 43 centa the scoured pound,
an advance of thirteon centa tbe acoured
pound over the price brougbt about by en
acted free trade and threatened free silver.
