Selecting Apples.
Particular apples demand particular
places. It Is a curious fact that out
of all the many varieties we have to
select from there are only a very few
that will do very well, that will bring
out the very best qualities of their
fruit on any one farm. We find that
the reputations of all our leading fruit
districts have been built up largely on
the success of one variety. Take the
Gravensteln; It has probably done
more for the reputation of the An
napolls valley in Nova Scotia than any
other apple. And so Hubbardston in
the Hudson river valley. Northern Spy
in western New York, near Lake On
tario, York Imperial in the south
mountain region in Pennsylvania and
Albemarle Pippin in the south moun
tain region of Virginia, says a writer
in an exchange. Just one variety of
apple has built up the reputation of
each of these different fruit districts.
Being In Debt.
There is a restaurant in New York
where the waiters do their level best
to make old customers sign checks
for meals instead of paying cash. The
moment a customer hesitates at sight
of the total, or evinces a tendency to
count the money in his pocket and
sigh, a waiter is sure to shove a pencil
into his hand and actually coax him to
"hang up" the cheek.
"Why, of course you ought to sign
checks," is the way one of the temp
ters put it the other day; "nobody
amounts to anything in New York till
he owes something."
Manure the Fields.
Manure the rhubarb and asparagus
fields. Both crops do best where
there is an abundance of vegetable
matter in the soil.

Practice of Leaving Few Colonisa on
8tand All Winter Without
Covering la Coetly.
Many bee keepers who have only a
few colonies allow them to remain
on the stand all winter without any
protection, but they generally find in
the spring that their carelessness has
cost them dearly, writes Charles Per
ry In the Farm and Home. If it seems
necessary to leave bees out of doors
they may be protected aa shown in
the illustration. I place the hives in
Outdoor Wlntor Boo «bolter.
» row oast and west, with the front to
W* south, and sot thorn about a foot
I rni tha super» with rage, ploooa
of burlap and torn newspapers, finish
log with a qulR of burlap. On thla 1
place the cover. Prairie hay or atraw
la tightly packed about tho backs,
aides and tops of the hlvee. Thla
material is put on 3 feet deop, and
ovor the whole thing is stretched
roofing paper, which la held In place
by six pieces of 2x4's, which may be
set into the ground. On warm days I
place a board in front of the hives to
prevent tho bees from flying out.
Convenience and Advantage of Pott's
Cages Are Detailed—Used ae
Cell Protectors.
(By JOSEPH GRAY, Lone Baton. Eng
I use Pott's queen-cages, which can
alao be used as cell-protectors or nur
series. The difference between these
and the regular Benton cages are:
1. Tho candy-hole Is made from the
end. using only a half-inch bit.
3. A half-inch hole la made through
the side Into the center compart
3. The top and side covers are of
perforated metal, and cut so that they
do not catch the clothing.
4. These covers are put on with a
screw, which Bervea as a hinge, and
can be tightened with one turn of the
screwdriver, so that the Imprisoned
bees cannot force open the doors and
escape, which I have seen them do
when laid down temporarily.
The convenience and advantage ef
these cages will be readily seen in the
following operations:
Go to your nucleus colony and pick
up the comb with the queen; grasp it
with the left hand, also hold your
queen cage with the same hand, your
thumb over the opened side door.
Now with the right hand pick off your
queen and she will easily pass
through the half-inch door. A
through the half-inch door. A three
eighth or quarter inch is not nearly
so convenient. You can cage as many
bees as you wish. with.seldom a sting.
The covers are so cut that they will
not catch the clothing and pull open
on the way to the out-apiary.
Revive Unorofitable Colony.
The disposition of an unprofitable
colony to store honey may be mate
rially Increased by giving them sev
eral combs of batching brood from an
industrious hive.
More Pure Honey.
It would be a good thing if more
families In general would adopt the
plan to have more pure honey on their
dining tables and less glucose mo
rinced hy tight narking'
... .
A good celery fertilizer must be rich
In nitrogen and potash.
Burned lime and manure should not
be mixed above ground.
If necessary to feed bees in mid
winter, better feed candy.
Never feed scorched sugar In the
winter, as it will kill the bees.
If you do not own a good fanning
mill you are the loser thereby.
A silo 16 feet in diameter and 24
feet high will hold approximately 86
tons of silage.
It is a mistake to sow alfalfa upon
land not containing the bacteria which
live upon its roots.
Ammonia is a nitrogen compound
and the nitrogen is the most valuable
part of the manure.
If you have poor boney, say so;
never lie about your own goods uor
about your neighbor's.
A very large proportion of our soils
need to be put back in the humus con
dition they were in originally.
Nearly all bee-keepers advocate
good stock In bees, but there is a di
versity of opinion as to the best way
to get the best stock.
If manure is left in piles about the
barn It soon begins to heat, even In
winter, especially If it contains any
large proportion of horse manure.

manure heap can be materially re

A Climactic
it Is time to go a-Maylng
When ths frost Is In the air.
When the snowy boughs are swaying
And the fields are white and fair;
It Is Joy, Indeed, to wander
Through the bosky dells and glades.
For It makes a man grow fonder
Of the snow through which he wades.
TIs particularly pleasing—
Maying with your Angers freealng.
Hear the robblna' merry chatter.
Hark the songs that they repeat
While they wonder what's the matter
As they nurse their frocen feet!
See the buttsrAies leap gaily
As they dance adown the breeae—•
They must exercise thus dally
Or with asthma they will wheese.
'tls Joyous to go Maying
When the world about Is playing.
See the lambkin as It gambols
On the hillside near Its dam.
How on froaen slopes It scrambles—
Cunning, gentle, frigid Iamb!
How the honeybees are humming.
Droning music as they go—
ee, a few of them are coming
Coasting on the Aakes of snow!
How the tender leaves are shaking
As from the boughs they're breaking.
Come, we'll share our Joys together;
Welcome spring with hearts elate,
ïaré forth In the balmy weather—
We can either stroll or skate.
Going Maying thus Is Joyous
In our furs and overshoes.
With no sunstrokes to annoy us—
Who another mood would choose?
It Is pleasant to go Maying
When we have such splendid sleighing!
