Hints for the Farmer. K
"J. M.," Who Has Made a Life-Time
Study of Fruit Growing. Tells Our '
Readers a Few of the Many y
Things He Knows. R
Mr. Fdlilor I'RORF~"N: ' i.
I soe by several of your edi
tio(,m that the chldl snap about the tl
middle of March brought forth 1,
considerable dliscussion albout. the
fruit prospects. There need be no
failure in growing gscnl crops of a
fruit. if the partios who plant a
fruit trees would plant the kinds f
adapted to this climate. But most
of the fruit trees sold in this ose
tion are sold by fruit tree agents,
who come from the Eastern States I
with large slpecimens of fruit in t
magrifying glcs'w. that nttract
the eye. And tho Ipeiple buy
thlose tree-. thinkiiix t, get the
-,1 I itnd of fruit, ne',r thinking
whlether thi.v sllit thi- c'ilimxat, 'r
I not. Iut taking it fir granteI that

do, not suit this climate.
And now, Mr. E1ditor, as I have
had twenty years' practical x-,ri
erice in fruit growing in this par
ish. although I made mlany miis
takes at tirst, I can now grow fruit
successfully. A proof of this is
that, notwithstanding all the cold
weather, I have an abundance of
peaches. pears and apples, and if
you come to my place any time
I after the 20th of May I will show
you as tine specimens of fruit as
you have over seen in the niagxni
fying glasses of the Easternra fruit
tree agent.
I will giveyour readers the ben
etit of my experience. and to those
who may have occasion to plant
fruit trees, they will do well. I am
sure, to make a note of it. HBegin
ning with peaches alwa3s re
member that peach trees ho, not
like "wet feet," and location has
much to do with their suwcoss.
Where selection of loeation can Ie
made, always select a high. dry
northern expulsure, and whe.n the
winter is setting iin, have y' ur tr et
barred off, the cold striking the
roots checks the sap and the trees
bloom much later, and escape late
frosts. Always select late Iloom
ing varieties, which, among the
early fruiting kinds, embraces the
Ameden, Briggs' Early May,
Snead. Alexandria, Early Rivers,
Yellow Mt. John, Thumber, Early
Crawford and Mountain tose.
The last three named varieties
bloom a little earlier than the
others, but when they escape the
f frost they are exceedingly fine.
- Of the late fruiting varieties that
bloom comparatively late, I men
tion the Hughes IXL, Henrietta,
(Gens. Lee and Jackson; we have
two more of recent introduction
the Wonderful, a yellow free-stone
which ripens in September: Even
ing Star, a yellow cling-stone,
which ripens in October. The
latter variety, when it Ibecomes
fully known, will be the universal
favorite for an October peach.
Next c3mes pears. About eight
.years ago the fruit tree agents of
the Eastern States canvassed this
SState with specimens of LeConte
pears, weighing about one pound
in magnifying glasses; that made
them appear to weigh about three,
and they sold thousands of them.
They grow fine, making very fine
shaped trees, covering themselves
in spring with splendid white
blossoms, all to be killed by the
spring trost, and repeated year
after year, showing us that this
elimate was not good for their
health. We have, however, a few
pears which do well in this eli
. mate; they ae the Howell, Bart
lett, Opp's tavorite, Iawon and

lasit mmed varieties growing on

without any offsets. This variety
i. very little known. lut will be
come the universal favorite for
this climate, as it is a very late
bloomer. A small orchard of this
pear may be seen at Mr. V. T.
Mlonkhouse's place, one mile went
of Jewella. At this place the trees
are three years old, and have from
five hundred to one thonusand
pears on a tree. This may iemr
like another tish story. but they
are there, rot on paper. nor yet in
magnifying glasses, lint on the
trees, and anyone donbting it can
le c,,livincedl by going tlhro and
having ai lIook at thenm.

Strawlerries -Twenty years ago
we had to depend on the old \\ I
son, a very good belrry. hut it ca"n
not stllal the dry summenrs we get
here sometimes. Since that time
we have had many new varieties
springing into existence, only to
disappear again. But two of them
have conic to stay. The ('loud is
one and Michel's Early is the
other. The Cloud is a ipetulant
variety, while Michel's is a statue
nant variety, and by planting the
two in alternate rows you cannot
fail to have a good patch of straw
twrries. Last fall I planted these
kin;s in lands ot three rows to a
land. After picking the last her
ries in summer, they were left to
grow grass and berries together.
nothing being bDe t, them until
February, when I set tire to, the
patch and hurned t he grass away
from them. They are now  hite
with blooms, and full of half
grown berrie-,, with a few ripe
ones. N otber varieties could
stand such tresatment and hear a
crop of berries. These two varie
ties are such strong growers that
they outgrow the weeds. It is a
wonder there are not more straw
berries planted. They give more
and quicker returns for their out
lay than anything else.
I will say in conclusion that in
this climate, cherries, gooseberries,
currants and many other iarieties
i of fruit are only fit for people to
I buy who have more money than
sense. Yours, J. M.
