Aw Anaslag Treatment That Baa

The man of the house, U he be a
smoker, ought to expend some of the
surplus smoke on the plants, writes "Gt
#L K." If he is permitted to smoke
Indoors, place his chair in the plant
window and Insist on his blowing the
smoke from his pipe or cigar among
the plants Instead of out in the room.
I have always noticed that in homes
where the male members of the family
smoke that bouse plants are remark
ably free from vermin. I am not advo
cating the use of the weed, but simply
stating a fact. A friend whose hus
band Is required to smoke out
of doors, or In the woodshed,
has a box arranged to hold her
plants when it Is necessary to give
them treatment for vermin; in the cov
er of the box 1 b a hole as large around
as a silver dollar, to which a plug Is
of the house, when
called upon for the service, takes his
place In the woodshed with pipe and
plant box and is required to expend a
part at least of his smoke on the
plants. It is quite amusing to see this
"lord of creation" with a mouthful of
smoke remove the plug from the plant
box and send the smoke among the
ual and he takes the idea somewhat

Strawberries can be raised on almost
any good farm soil, but a rich sandy
loam Is preferable. Plow the ground
In the fall, then in the spring replow
and pulverize thoroughly, planting as
goon as danger from frost is past. Cul
tivate throughout the season, keeping
a loose layer of earth on the top to act
as a mulch. As soon as the ground is
frozen so that It will bear up a team,
cover with hay, straw or coarse manure
of any kind. Leave this on until all
danger of frost is past in the spring,
then rake off the rows and let it re

is a brisk breeze, burn the whole patch.
Orchards will in time exhaust, at
least partially, the fertility of the soil,
and this exhaustion is especially no
ticeable on soils which were not espec
ially rich at the time the trees were
planted. To make young trees grow
more rapidly, a fertilizer should be
used, containing a small per cent, of
nitrogen (ammonia) mixed with potash
and phosphates. For older orchards
the nitrogen is not so necessary,
while phosphates and potash should
be increased, especially the quantity of
potash. It Is frequently a good plan
to stimulate top growth by sowing the
orchard to crimson clover in late
mer and turning it under in the spring.
Have Fine ChryMantheniuiim.
Vick says a point few amateurs prop
erly understand is that In order to have
fine chrysanthemums the plants or
clumps must be taken up and divided
every spring, starting every plant for
the next season's bloom from a single
one of the new shoots that crowd up
thickly from the roots. It is easy to
break these shoots out with a
to each one, and when potted they
grow rapidly. But if all the shoots
cf the old root are left to grow as they
spring up the result will be a crowded
masB of mildewed leaves and sickly
shoots, with a few clusters of small
flowers. Divide your plants, give away
what you can and throw the rest away.
So large a part of most fruits ls wa
that we are apt to forget their oth
eral. All fruits require potash for
their seeds, and this mineral also
is to bo uecessary to aid in ripen
ing the fruit. This it probably does
by keeping the foliage healthy. Ap

fitted by applications of phosphate.
With plenty of mineral fertilizers no
stable manure will be needed.
