Why aro there no more tipple for sale In Vermont this year? Some folks say It Is on off year. Mr. Kinney says It Is because tho farmers don't know how to raise them. One reason why farmers don't know more nbout such matters Is that no effort has been mado to teti"h these things. In other Slates liberal cash assistance Is given to horticultural educa tion by the support of horticultural so cieties, etc. Vermont ought to do some thing In this lino, Mr. Kinney then spoke of tho breeding of pedigreed npnle Mock.
