Tho chief theme of this paper Is to hot ter the horticultural Industry of Vermont. Tho general proposition is that of devel oping and establishing good methods which will lead to horticultural better ment. A successful orchnrdlst in Char lotte Is conspicuous because ho will prac tice what many have preache-d. A straw berry man, a peach grower or a truck gardener follow a similar course nnd suc ceed. Hut better conditions for the ma jority Is of great Importance. There nro several phases of horticul tural development that need Immediate attention. A few words may be said about each of them. 1. Apple Ind.istrj problems. Tho apple Is the chief horticultural crop of Ver mont. Our soil and cllmute nre adapted to apple culture and our nearness to mar ked emphasizes our opportunities. Scarce ly a State In the union can pioduee ap ples of better quality and yet. we havo scarcely begun to develop our orchard In dustry. Only a few people In Vermont are growing good apples In quantity. Hotter methods must bo taught, nnd demonstrations should be made In every county. The mot significant and pitiable fact at tho present time Is tho tremendous quantity of low quality fruit. There are two typos of remedial measures for low grade fruit. a. Community sprayers. It Is a gener ally accepted fact that Intelligent orchard spraying Is too technical a business fur the average nnd general purpose fanner; but spraying Is Imperative. An experi enced community sprav man might work wonders in any district. b Fruit factories are- needed. Kve.rj lare fruit growing State has Its fruit factories. Such Industries are Indispen sable as an outlet for low grade fruit. New York State bus a factory in nearly every county, fanning and evaporating factories should be Introduced. c. Orchard renovation. There aro many unproductive orchards In Vermont. The old orchards possess wonderful potentiali ties. Orchard renovation Is a short cut to oaily returns, where'as orchnrd plant ing means a long wait for crops, 2. Huslness methodi. Much if the suc cess of the northwestern fruit growing Induitry l.s attributable to business meth- ods of the orchard men. Hotter buslnos inntnodi snouiu bo introduced throughout this Htnto. We ought to know Just how much it costs to produce a barrel of ap ples, 10 bushels of plums, or nn acre of potatoes. Hook accounts are worth whllo and will be extremely valuable to plant Industry men of to-day and the future. 3. Plant Improvement. W need bet ter plants. This may mean superior va rieties or improved strains of existing varieties, jiom m um vniumim mr.nii. w tho present day are discover.,' rather than created. Desirable variations should be selected and preserved. A plant m- provcrnent noclety might he established In eve-ry town anil ir properly manimcu would bo productive of much good. (. Horticulture In schools. Tho future of the horticultural Industry rests with the developing generation. Horticulture may be so taught In rural or high schools as to revolutionize tho status of horticul ture In tho community where such sub jects nro taught, WHAT V1CRMONTERS ARK DOING IN .ORKSTRY. (liy A, F. Hnwes, State Forestor.) Forestry Is the business of obtaining permanent profits from the forcit nnd demands effort and usually Investment Just ns Improved agriculture demand work, fertilizers, hotter stock, better machinery, etc, Ho neither the man who lumbers carelessly nor the man who 3lmply holdf a forert allowing mature trees to rot is practicing foroatiy Of those In Vermont who nre doing some thing In forestry, most are planting want lands, The State nursery sold last year 370,700 trees us compared to joo.ouo n I.ii. h Mil 1100. IncltidhiB tteef fceitred from other sources, there have been planted durlnp the txvo yenrs, 'UI.O-Xi troen In Windsor county, as against S00 in Ileiinlnistnn county and 3,'(w in rtutlnnd county. Those who have planted over lO.Ofu) trees In the northern part of the State: Dr. William Stevens t.f Ht. Albans-, The Hurt Lumber Co. of Stowej D. T. Hanley In Milton: Phnrlfi R. Holden, a lumbermnn of Troy, the Hlckor I3ros, and Alfred Helle, lumbermen of Oroton. In Washington and Oramro counties: I)lx Camp of ltandolph, Nelson lialley of Wells Itlver, Ilt d I lowland In .Marsh fleld: In the southern part of the State, flen. (', C.

Cannon of Itoche' tcr, W. )1. Woolson and Mr. Hnrk ness In Springfield, Miss Wooelbury of Wentherffleld, floorfro 'alte and K. 1). San In of Windsor. These larpe planta tions will soon be conspicuous features In their communities and will Interest others In forestry. Ilesldes those there are over If") smaller plantations scattered widely over the State. The trees planted are mostly white pitir, and Norway spi nee. The Hllllntjs citato of Woodstock, lone under the able mannttonicnt of George Altken, has the most interesting example of forestry In the State: several older plantations of Norway spruca, European larch and white fuh besides moro recent pl.mtlnus of pine nnd some splendid natural hardwoods which havo been properly thlnne-1. Tho International Paper company Is un ('ortnkhu; forestry on a Ibtko scale. He tides planting largo areas they have es tablished a nursery at ltandolph so as to raise their own stock for planting, and Intend to cut hereafter only under for estry pilnclples. The first privnto owner to undertake n systematic management of his tract un der a "working plan" wa.s Dr. William I. Stevens, whose land Is In Knoshurg. t'n der this plan Dr. Stevens cut during the first year SI, 42! feet of lumber and 1W cords of wood. The proceeds were used toward planting 40,i"i trees on the waste land. The Hon. T. N. Vail lias now a similar ' working plan" made by this office of his 600 acres of forest lands In Lyndon vlllc. All the woodlands will be thinned out and Tl.COO trees will he planted; white nnd Scotch pine, Norway spruce and block locust for timber and fence posts; red oak, European larch, white Mrch, hemlock and red maple for orna mental purposes. i:. A. Darling will also plant 12,tt white pines In the spring of 1911, on ills lands In Lyndon and liurke. One of the moit Interested Vermontors in forestry Is T. D. Hobart, who llve.s In Texas but ppends his summer- on his old farm In Herlln. where he Is harvesting his timber along forestry lines and planting hs wasto ian,iK to pine and spruce. Col. H. L. Foster Is doing similar work on Ills farm In Calais. Next to the International Paper com pany corporation doing the. mot forestry work Is the Vermont Marble company, which will establish a nursery In Proc tor this year and begin planting CO acres of waste land In Windham county. In the Hutland region the Country club, the Vermont House of Correction, the Vermont sanatorium and Horry Clement have had preliminary plans made for In troducing foie-stiy on their lands. At Hrandon Miss Julia Jackson has been har estlng some mature pine and oak lumber under forestry principles. In ICssox the Howe Hros. are making systematic thinnings and planting on their large area of second growth pine and hardwoods. While little has thus far been done In Hennlngton county It Is encouraging to know that the Hon. M. J. Hapgood has voluntarily bound himself and his heirs never to cut any trees on a laige tract of land except with the consent of the State forester. This spring many now plantations will bo made besides the enlargement of oth ers alre-ady started. ORCHARD SPI'.AYS AND SPRAYERS. (By M. H. Cunimlngs, Professor of Horticulture.) Insects and fungi abound every where, and In no place aro they more abundant and Injurious than In tho orchard. The orchard pests levy n heavy tax on the orchard crop of Ver mont, Generally speaking tho Iosh from Insects and fungi Is fully 50 per cent, of 'the edible fruits. All successful fruit growers must recoKnizn tne nocessu oi spraying, j i"'1 should put I-to practice tho most approved methods of the present time, A !w essentials are listed In this ar- tlele, Tho Spray. A limn and sulphur solution for the orchard Is prefernble 'to Hordoaux. To make the former, I take four pounds of sulphur, Ave pound' of unslaked Hmo and T.-0 gal lons of water. Put lime and sulphur together In a kottle, add 15 gallons of water; allow sinking lime to cook mixture IK minutes; add rest of the wntor, strain carefully and uro at onco. (Add to this mlVturo two pounds of lend arsenate for insoots). The llme-sulplnir solution Is effective against fungas diseases, and lead ar ronate Is for Inse-cts which eat tho haves nnd fruit. Spray Outfit. A good pump is ah ab solute necessity. For orchards of five acres or less a barrel pump costing 24 is satisfactory. For larger areas, power sprnyeis nro advisable. Fre quently 'two or more orchardlsta can combine nnd purchase at much loss expense to oacii, and since iwo men nr0 needed In sprnylng, the co-opora- tlon of nearby neighbors may seem desirable. A completo r,utflt includes several things In addltlun to the pump. Twen ty feet of good hos, a ten foot hab hoo extension rod, which Is tipped with a good nozzle, aie also required, A special spray wagon, simple bu't substantial in construction, Is needed where barrel sprayers nro used. The frm wngon Is frequently irood , , ,,ut ,m, ,,' Inllst bo t)V , uso ,f IlUtforn,, L0 lllnt 1)R ,.cacn , ,.. I ,, 0 Individual will be nble to devise his own outfit after he knows Just what Is wanted. Applications of the general orchard spray should bo Riven Immediately after the blossoms fall, nnd ton days thereafter. Particular pests may need tpoolnl nttentlon ns occasion may require. The. ireneial principles of spraying my b briefly summarized ns follows: run to spray every year, even though the ejrop he light, nnd pests apparent ly few in number. Propr sprys, carefully made and thoroughly W plied arc essential for successful re sults. Order all spray ma'tfrlal early and be sure Hint the whole outfit is In good order no that spraying may begin at short notice. Sprays nre not curative, but pre ventative; hence the necessity for timely applications. Spraying I merely Insur. nnce, but nn Investment, for work well done lncreM.4 return ritnellnoss nnd thoroughness tneun success nnd profit. Till? PASTt'RINC! OF SW1NK. (My Tt. M. Washburn, Professor of Dairy Husbandry.) There Is probably no phase of agri culture In which farm practices differ moro violently in the different flections of tho country, than in the matter of swlno culture. In the southwest tho not;s nre turned loose nnd must forage over the hills and low lands for absolutely nil thnt they get to eat, living on pasture entire ly, It being nerrssnry over largo sections of the southwestern country to fence lnrgn fields ugnlnst hogs as well as against cattle. While, the system of pasturing boss hns Its weakness wlmn carried to t.K extreme, It certainly plso has shown Its points of advantage further north where the hogs aro sys tematically pastured during their younger life, nnd mndo In build strong frames nnd muscle nnd develop constitutions upon the cheapest sort of fond muffs. The pasture most common is still, prob ably, blue grass, although It Is not as well ndnpted lo such uses in alfalfa or clover. Youi hogs on nn alfalfa pasture need only wnte- to ennblo them to make good growth nnd that very economically. Where this alfalfa pasture is not feasible, oft times low swampy ground can ho utilized to excellent advantage, there being unite n variety of weeds and grasses vhich serve ns food for these anlmnbi. In violent contrast to this "ilvcrsal pasturing system of the southwest and west, we find the eastern nnd New F.ng land farmern confining their stock vor closely, In fart so closely that for months together the animals se cure no green food except what little may be brou-bt '.hem In the form of wastes from tho kitchen. One of the most extreme cnes which I have ever seen was that of a farmer, who through out the summer seison kept his pigs in an old log house, feeding them westen middlings and water, when Jii'-l outsld the bughouse there was n broken hit of creek bottom which er!1 nlrculy v.-, is half fenced. This snmo farmer hnd sev eral ncros of old orchard which wore producing nothing of market vnlue for the reason that worms wore year after year destroying the crop. This orchnrd likewise wns partially fenied. If a smn'l portion of the feed bill of these hogs hnd loon spent upon fencing In the old or chnrd nnd creek bottom, tho pigs would have lived and thrived and grown healthy, strong, clean bodies upon the bad apples, brake roots and grasses. A better bunch of hogs could have boon grown and at much loss expense. There Is altogether too much of close housing and altogether too Uttle pasturing of swine. When It comes to the fattening process the system of confining the hogs in ;i halt dark house or basement Is perfect ly proper and along most economical linos. Hut Just as tho sunny open fields aie not conducive to economy in fatten ing, so the dark, damp, stuffy basement -are not conducive to health and strength, either In the little pigs farrowed or in the older ones being grown. The brood sow and tho growing young require light, air nnd exercise for health and strength. Our practice on our homo farm has, for years, bean to pastille the brood sows and growing pigs, confining them only when the fattening period commenced We have found that they make such good use of roughage that we have for a number of years past systematically stored for them a quantity of second cut clover to ho fed dally In small quantities throughout the winter months. Another re-aelreptntlon point which T am certain Vermont farmers should hegln to consider and practice ns rapidly as practicable Is the matter of growing upon their own farms more of the corn or barley required to make most economical use of the skim milk pro duced. It Is n conspicuous fact that whereas otdlnary klm milk fed alone has a pork-producing value of only about IDc ppr 100 pounds It does, when com bined with corn or bnrley In the propor tion of about 1 lb. grain to 3 or I lbs. milk, have a grain saving tr pork producing value of 50c per W lbs. nnd under very favorable conditions values even higher than thnt. The vnlue i f skim milk an n pig food, then, will de pend upon the ago of the animal to which It Is fed, nnd tlie amount nnd kind of other foods fed along with the milk. 1 nder n system of farming where there are produced two or moro litters per year per sow, and tho growth on tho form of corn or bnrley to food with the skim milk, Jiich skim milk has a true value of not loss than r'e per 100 lbs. We of New England must learn of our com petitors how to produce more economical ly, and the pamurlng of hogs is one of the many points which merits present nttentlon. TABLK LINENS. (Hy S. Maria Hlllott.) AH linen Is a product of tho flnx plant ns nre flaxseed and llns-ecd oil. It ts n fibre which Is separated from the stalk by "retting" or the work of bacteria In the decomposition of eellulolse. - .i yarn made from this fibre Is a brownish yellow color, or the oloth made from It may be bleiche-d by Nature's methods-sunshine nnd molit oxygen. There Is a slow but Nifo method. Chemi cals nre nod but unlo&s well governed weaken and destroy the fibre. The unbleached, half, silver and full bleach damnsk, each have qualities of value. Primary value In dnma-sks depends upon fineness, the number of threads to the inch nnd weight per square yard. Stock patterns are those found usually at any time nnd In all large store'. The Ger man damasks ore very durable but not o varied In pattern or pure whltei In bleach. Cloths nre distinguished from damask sold by tho yard by mainly a bordor nil around. A small advance in prion covers the extra ynrn nnd labor Involved and tho cloth looks finer. Union goods or linen and cotton mixed (.eldom give efficient service through wear and laundering as all cotton. I.lnon Is the moat absorbent fibre, therefore towels which nre for purposes scientifically should not be laundered. AGRICULTURAL EXTENSION, (Hy W. D. Hurd, Director Intension Worn, Moss, Agl. College.) For about 14 yearn nftcr tho arloul turn) colloge and State universities were organized they devotod their work to the two lines of Instructing college stu dent and carrying on experimental work. During tho last ton years another and perhape the most valuable line of effort has been started, extension work, an attempt to make colleges useful to the people of tho Stato who support them through taxation. This work has grown very rapidly. Five yearn ngo four In stitution had established extension de partments; to-day there are 33. It Is n slow process to wait for these colleges to graduate enough agricultural students to teach modern methods, and a direct, speedy and straight process must be de vised to this end; and this extension seeks to accomplish. In the early days of extension work It was largely for advertising purposes; hut this haa all been done away with snd these departments nre well organ ized and carry on a. systematic, sane, useful work. The country life commis sion, the national grunge, tho various. "the golden streets of the new Jerusalem" One of our enthusiastic contestants writes: "What a grand time we had at the Corn Exposition at Worcester I It was both en joyable and instructive. In offering prizes as you did you have greatly increased the interest in corn growing and thus advanced New England agriculture. I hope you will keep right on doing so. And after you have faithfully served your generation, and dropped asleep with the fathers we farmers will adorn your casket with prize ears of golden corn, which will not be out of place in the golden streets of the New Jerusalem." We propose to keep right on, as will be seen in our book of the corn contest, out today, mailed free to any address. It tells how the 59 contestants grew their corn and how they would do it again; also the analyses of different varieties of corn, and useful tables showing their feeding values. Even if you raise no corn at all, you will find these results interesting and valuable for reference. It also contains an announcement of the prizes offered this year and rules governing this year's contest. Why not compete? You will be sure of a good, profitable crop with the Stockbridge any how, besides standing a chance to win a substantial cash prize. i KILLED CARRYING ! HOME GROCER!
