Market Gardening. ] The truck farmer is rapidly' becoming a prime factor in the economics of a great city, and' the nearer he comes to under standing the art of gardening the greater his profits and more extended the benefits de rived by the community from his industry. It is not all of truck farming to plow and plant, to hoc and weed, but the farmer must know how to maintain the fertility of the soil To this end. a good gener al knowledge of the use of cither natural or artificial manures is essential, and then be must have; full appreciation of the rotation of crops and of the benefits to be derived from an occasional green ; manuring to put the soil in good tilth, and he would be a poor op erator, indeed, did he not know something of the relation that water holds to the plant creation and of the best means of conserv ing that relation. In market gardening we first have man himself as the most imjH>:tant factor, for upon him rests the responsibility of select* | ion of a suitable site, the prepar ation of the soil, seeding, grow ing and care of the coming crop, and finally of its marketing, with • the hundred and -nc details that enter into these operations. The field for market gardening is a Urge one, and ;s as yet hut partially occupied; this to the : man who is equipped w ith a good knowledge cij plants and their re ' quiremeitls, of soils and what is needed to keep them abundantly ‘supplied with plant food with the -lightest outlay of capital, the field is a very inviting one. The agricultural colleges of the : land are now equipped to impart this information, and their facili-j lies for teaching arcconstantly in creasing. It is corning to be i recognized more that theory and practice, science and art, must go hand in hand if we would haw strong all-round men; there fore the prospective gardener should supplement his pactical iexperience with the scientific training afforded by a good agri j cultural college.—Mississippi | Journal- I No More Blind Horses.—For Specific Optbalmia, Moon Blind ness and other Sore Kyca, Barry Co., Iowa City,Iowa.
