8 Ht .WEEKLY DIGEST Of Experiment Station Bulletins. No82. FBUITS AND VEGETABLES. Bulletins 142, 143, and 144, of Michi gan Station, all bound in one, treat of tests of fruits and vegetables. Of the newer strawberries, Brooke, Bryant, Enormous. Kossuth, Smalley, Thompson No. 103, and Wyatt are promising. O! those somewhat cider. Aroma, Fred Stahelin Longfield, Mar Haxweli, Snowball, and Thompson Noa. 40 and 64 continue to merit the praise given them in former reports. The beat very late varieties are Belle, Oandy and Parker Earle. Of black raspberries Columbian, Conrath, Farnsworth, Gregg, Kansas, Mills No. 15, Ohio, Older, Palmer and Shaffer are excellent. Ada, Caroline, Cromwell, Ebon Beauty, Hopkinp, Jackson's May King, Progress, Smith and Virginia were unsatisfactory. Of red raspberries, Cuthbert and Turner still stand high and such newer kinds as Kenyon, Loudon and Stay man No. 1 are very promising. Of yellow kinds Golden Queen and Perry's Golden are recommended. Of blackberries, E.dorado, Taylor, and Snyder are the only good ones per fectly hardy in Michigan winterp. Some others are good if covered up in winter. All each novelties as the Japanese Golden May berry, June Berry, Straw berry Raspberry and Japanese Wine berry are found to be of no practical value in Michigan. The behavior of the old varieties cf grapes is discussed, but no new ones are treated of. Of currants, Naples was the best black variety, Red Dutch, Holland, North 8tar, London, Cherry and Fay were best red kinds, and White Dutch, White Godoin and White Grape were best white kinds tested. Cr and all, Victoria, Ruby Castle, Ruby and Select - were unsatisfactory. Of gooseberries, Champion, Industry, Pearl and Triumph are the best varie ties tested, but must be given faithful spraying and watchful care. Of cherries, Coe, Dyehouse, Rich mond and Windsor gave best satisfac tion. Of the new Russian varieties, Bessarabia. Brusaeler Branne, and a few others are adapted to cooking pur poses. Of peaches, Waterloo was earliest, followed by River Bank, Alexander and Amsden, but the best, most beau tiful and most profitable early kind was Rivers. Hyatt, Hale X, Japan Dwarf, Haas, Hale and Hynes all ripened in July. Of 68 varieties of peaches ripened in August, Champion, Eirly Michigan, Eagle and Morris White ranked high est in quality. But Amelia, Early Michigan, Bcquett, Early Barnard, Early Crawford, June Rose, Kalama zoo, Minne, Mountain Rose, Muir, Mys tery and Slump ranked highest as to productiveness. Of 92 varieties ripening in September, Old Mixon Free ranked highest in both quality acd productiveness. Allen, Bonanza, Blood Leaf, Chili, Columbia, Golden Drop, Smock, Lovett White. Marshall, Pearl and Princess rank high in productiveness Iron Mountain, Normand and Stark Heath matured early in October, Brett the middle of October and frost caught Ice Mountain before it ripened. Of the newer plums Archduke, Block Diamond, Grand Duke and Ktcgstn are very promising; also Lyon, Sara toga, Victoria and Yellow Aubert. All of the above are of European origin. The best native varieties tested were Robinson, DeSoto, Moreman and Hawk eye. Of Japan plum?, Abundance, Maru and Shiro Snaomo are much alike and all good. Burbank, Rsd Negate, Sat suma and Wickson are all highly com mended. Of newer, pears, Ansault, Barry and Ogereau are very promising. Tne older varieties art also discussed. A very long list of apples is discussed, many of which gave fatisf action. Of eleven varieties of the quince un der test, none have yet proven superior to the old Orange, or Apple quince, all things considered. Of 6 varieties of chestnut under test, Paragon and Spanish were the only fruitful ones. Almonds, filberts and pecans have failed to bear. Japan walnut has fruited finely. No variety of apricot has yet dene well in Michigan and the same may be said of nectarines. New American proved to be the beet of all mulberries tested. Palmetto and Columbian were the best varieties of asparagus tried, and Linnaeus and Biloy were the best kinds of rhubarb, or pie plant. Of dwarf beans, the following are recommended: Valentine Wax, Red Valentine, Keeney's Golden Wax, Cyl inder Black , Wax, Flageolet Victoria, Btringleas Green Pod, and Dwarf Hor ticultural, the latter being an excellent shell bean. Of beets, Egyptian, Eclipse, Bassano, Saulta Model and Blood Turnip are recommended. Of 63 varieties of cabbage tested, the beat early were Wakefield, Salzer's Lightning and Reedland Drumhead; the best medium, Vacdergaw, Mid summer and Long Island; best late, Market Gardener's Flat Dutch, Red Drumhead acd Champion Drumhead. The Chinese and Siberian cabbage tested proved to be different kinds of mustard and of no value. Of cucumbers tested, Russian is recommended for early picklea Cluster for early slicing, Eskimo both pickles and slicing, Commercial Pickle and Green Prolific for general pickling, White Spine, Long Green and Albino tor table use. Of lettuce, Tennis Ball. Boston and White Star were best for fcrcing; for open culture, Iceberg, Morse, Dwarf White Heart, Prize Head and Miguar rette gave excellent results. Golden is a better yellow onion than Dan vers. Priza winner is identical with Prizstaker, except that it is white. Both are highly recommended. Nothing new was developed as to peas, squash, radishes, sweet corn, po tatoes or tomatoes. Spraying potatoes proved effective against both early blight and the Colorado potato beetle. Squash bugs were trapped by placing boards on the ground. The bugs sought shelter under these at night and were killed in the early morning. DAIRY FARMING. Bulletin 47, of Maryland Station, is a popular treatise on Dairy Farming. Tne low prices ruling the markets for staple farm crops is causing thousands of men to think of turning from these to some such line as truck, fruit, or dairying. In dairying, success depends upon three factora the man, the cow and the feed. Probably the most important factor is tha man himself. The idea generally prevalent that a man who has not suffi cient capacity to do anything else suc cessfully can succeed at farming, is a f alia cy. No other calling re quires such varied talents and knowledge, and successful dairy farming requires a high degree of intelligence, industry and integrity. It requires constant and regular attention to important de tails. It 'alio ws of no holidays or Sab baths. The successful dairyman must be a keen and close observer, a lover of animals, a good business man, instinct ively neat and clean. One such man can take entire care of at least 25 cows, and if hired will command 130 to 40 per month and free house rent. This makes the cost of care and attention about 1 17 per per cow per year. The feed will cost about $31 mere, making the total an nual cost $48 per cow. Next to the man, the cow is the most important factor in successful dairy ing, and if it costs $43 per year to feed and care for. her and attend to her calf and products, she must give a yearly return of more than t48 to yield a profit. If she yields 200 pounds of but ter per year, at 20 cents per pouad, she costs 8 more than she brings in If she yields 300 pounds at 20 cents, there is a pre fit of $12 a year, exclusive of the calf, manure and ekim milk and butter milk. This shows how easy it is for one half of a dairy herd to eat up all the profits from the other half. In selecting a dairy herd, buy eolely on test or guaranteed performance, and accept no cow that will not yield 300 pounds of butter a year. Buy the best native cows and grades. Pedigree is a good thing if it belongs to a good performer, but performance is the main thirg in the dairj. Get a thoroughbred dairy bull from a good butter strain, and raise your heifer calves, conate.ntly weeding out all nut c:ming up to the standard. To do this weeding out, open an ac count with each cow, charging her with her part cf the feed and carp, and credit hor with her products. To get at the value of her products, weigh her milk once a week and teet it by the Babcock machine, and multiply this by 7 for the whole week. It is not easy to bay good dairy cowp. Those who offer cows for sale usually offer their poorest ones, and no dairy man can afford to keep suchcows even if given to him. Having gotten good cows in charge of a good man, look well to the feeding. Study the principles of correct feeding till you master them. Under the general practice of pas turing in summer and feediDg in win ter, it requires an average cf 4 ceres of land to each co; but by the best man agement of good land one acre may be made to carry a cow, and under the green soiling system 90 cows have been kept on 4 ceres. The best system is a combination of rich pastures in the nusa season, green eoiling crcp3 cut and fed aa tho pastureu fail, silage in winter, and purchased by product of oilmilla, a mr mills, starch factories, breweries, etc. For eilage no crop equals corn. For S fin& P. corn, sorghum, millet, clover, rve harW ;J ture of oat a and peas should be grown in succession and rotation, each grower selecting such of these crops and such varieties as are best adapted to his par ticular coil and climate. As to whether the purchased feed shall be wheat bran, linseed meal, cot ton seed meal, or gluten meal, will de pend ofl"market prices. Most dairy farmers may economically produce their own meal and their own hay. Cotton seed meal, wheat bran, linseed meal and gluten meal are all rich in protein. A good mixture is 200 pounds each of corn meal and wheat bran to 100 pound3Tf cotton seed meal. Where linseed meal or gluten meal is cheaper, either may be substituted for cotton seed meal. Feed each cow 10 or 12 pounds of this mixture per day, with 20 pounds silage and 5 to 10 pounds of good hay or fodder all fodder to be shredded or cut This is for winter feeding, with good shelter from storms. While the man, the cow and the feed are the most important factors, location and market are also important. The right sort of man will produce goods that will command good prices in al most any market. Dairy products are staple necessaries of life, and if first class in quality they may always be sold at fair prices. If located near a good town or city, Belling milk may be most profitabla. If a long ways from market, it may pay best to make cheese, as it may be kept longer and carried awry in larger loads than butter. If within moderate dis tance of your market, make butter, and if the market becomes glutted in summer, sell ice cream instead. Whether frozen cr ready for freezing, let the cream bo of high quality, and you will find ready sale among the best families acd the high class hotels, res taurants and soda fountains. The bulletin discusses creameries and advocates only the co-operative plan. Not less than 350 to 500 cows within 3 to 4 miles are necessary to success. The officers should be patrons and serve without salary. The manager should be an expert of known integrity and skill. The c ffioers should visit one or two successful creameries and make a memorandum of such apparatus and buildings as they may need and get bids for those from various factories, but refuse to listen to the advice or schemes of any agent or promoter. Every dairyman should take a first class dairy paper and should purchase and study Gurler's "American Dairy ing," a $1 book of great value, DIPPING CATTLE. A number of Texas Btcckmen have found chloro naptholeum, at the rate of one gallon to 500 gallons of water, to be the best and cheapest dip yet tried for killing ticks on cattle. The U. 8. Government now has an inspector at the Fort Worth stock yard 8 to teet dipping as a means of freeing Texas cattle frcm ticks and thus preventing the spread of Texas cattle fever. A hundred thousand head will be dipped, examined and shipped. If results are satisfactory, all cattle accompanied by a certificate that they have been dipped, will be permitted to cross the quarantine lines. A Kansas City authority estimates that if this is done it will add $5 per head to the value of Texas feeders acd that $350,000 of of them "will find their way to Northern feed yards this fall. THE DAIKY. UPWARD TREND OF DAIRYING. Correspondence of the Progressive Farmer. The old proverb, that he who makes two blades of grass grow where only one sprang up before is a public bene factor, ought to be widened in its scope eo as to take in the dairymen who, by careful management iacreasea the value of his herd. It is no slight achievement to have been able ta take a lot of poor cows which scarcely paid for their keeping and bring them up to the point where tho quality of milk produced is from one fourth to one half greater than at first, and the value of the product increased instill greater proportion. This is what many herds men have done and are now doing. The man who is satisfied to drift along in the old way is unwilling to bo lieve the reports of those who have built up their dairies from small be ginnings to a place of profit. "Stuff and nonsense I" he toys. "I know that no cow can be made to produce four hundred pounds of butter in a year. Why, that is mora than any f our of my cowa will do, and they are good ones, too." We may well believe this latter statement if wc visit his farm and note his methods. Cows selected with no idea cf their true value ss milk or butter maker? ; poor pastures ; scanty supply of water ; unventilated stables ; out of date appliance in the hmse; slipshod ways of caring for milk nd butter; no dairy paper on the table can't afford to take it these indicate truthfully the state of this man's buei nees. And still, we do know that many men have brought their dairies up to the point of perfection spoken of above ; and they are not yet satisfied. It fa possible to start with just such a herd rut haa been described, and by making it a study so to elevate the capacity of the individual members of the flock that in a few years it will bo a source of profit instead of an expense to the owner. This is what we must aim at, and the first point to be gained is to open the eyes of the easily satisfied dairyman to the possibilities of his profession. This tho dairy press is in some degree doing. Once a good liv8 dairy paper, or farm paper with a well-conducted dairy de partment, is placed in his hands, the trend is upward. The dissatisfied dairyman is the one who will'soon be gin to work upward. Deliver us from drifting I Of course, it is easy to slip along; but it is manly, courageous and full of promise to take the oars in hand and turn up the stream. There lies the fountain of success. Wake up, brother dairyman 1 Wake up ! E L. Vincent. Broome Co., N. Y. MILKING. Hoard's Dairyman says : Milking is an art. It can be learned only by practice. All the elaborate in etructiona that were ever published as to "How to Milk," all the lectures that wero ever given on this subject at farmers' meetings, or all the talk given by the dairymen to their hired help, never yet made a good milker, Many persons cannot, though they try ever so faithfully, be good milkers. Some, in giving instructions, will tell all the particulars of how to handle the teats; another will say, milk the two teats next to the milker first, then the other two. Another says, milk the two front teats together, then the two hind ones, and still another insists it is the beet way to milk diagonally; We remember the statement of one man who was suro ho had discovered the only good way the way that would, every time, with every cow, insure the most and besUmilk and that was to milk the streams with both hands at the same time, and not alternatefas is usually done. He knew that was so because he had tried it with all his cows. In our opinion, all this kind of talk is for the most part useless. All the instructions we care to give, after in sisting on cleanliness, of course, is to urge each milker to milk in such a way as to get the most milk possible in the shortest time, and in such a way that the cow will stand quiet and contented, and seem to enjoy it. If the milker tries, and is anxious to c xcel in the arr, he will succeed, unless he should be one of these who, not having natural gumption and sense enough, can never learn. The best milkers do not milk every cow in the same manner, by any means. Tney practice till they find out the bf-st way for each cow. One, perhaps, has very short teats which milk easy, but one of such a peculiar shape that the milker finds stripping with thumb and finger, for most of the time, is beet for her. Another cow he finds, milks better by taking hold wi;h the whole hand, jast equefzing the milk out by closing the forefinger around it first and the other fingers in succession, then open the hand and let the teat fill up, and so on. Another cow he finds does bett r by pushing the hand up against the udder each time, or putting the thumb and fore finger up onto the udder, and giving a little pressure. When the milker finds cut which is the best way for each cow, he should milk her the same way each time. It wiil be seen that there should bo no change of milkers if the cows are to do their best. H. B Gurler relates in h"s Ameri can Dairying," how he c flared priz s to those who would have the least shrinking of milk with tho cows ihey milked for a certain numbecol months. Hi cows held out their milk that year vastly better than ever before. His milkers, under that stimulus, learned to milk in a manner which brought the most miln, aDd yet we have no idea they milked each cow in the same manner. A good milker ia a very valuable man for the dairyman, whilo a poor milker may causa his employer to lose more than the amount of his yearly wages. The milker who can get the most milk from a cow is worth a great deal more than the man who gets only just a little less, because his cows will keep up the flow much longer, and be sides that, the one that gets the mcst milk, gets the richest milk. .

' Tn the KnTTnp T u AVtcliif A r s w I i ti L 1 I 1 is H II mi Hi 1 Hlkfffll HB if A ROMANCE OF THE PENSION OFFICE. Divorce court records contain no case more peculiar than that of Mrs. Sarah Alley-White, now a resident of the Indian Territory. It seems that in 1842 this lady, who was then some years younger than she is at present, allowed her affections to be won by a certain William White. Where the winning was done is not made clear in the account now at hand, but it was undoubtedly a charming romance, and unconventional in that it ended, so far at least as the preliminary stages were concerned, in a wedding, to whose sol emnfzition nobody made any objec tion. After a while Mr. White myste riously disappeared, a fact which his wife, who knew her own value, took as clear proof of hia death, and in due course of time she set her affections again and on Mr. G. D. Alley. That was in 1858 Mr. Alley, remained viai ble until 1881, when he too disappeared, not mysteriously, however, but under a ccffio lid, and was buried in the re gular and respectable way. Years went on and Mrs. Alley remained faithful to Mr. Alley's memory as a good provider and a man who observed the conven tionalities of life. Last summer Mrs. Alley learned that Mr. White did not wither away in loneliness quite so quickly as she had supposed. Instead tie had lingered along rather rcbastly, in some out-of the way place, until the war broke out He enlisted, fought more or less nobly, and was finally killed in battle. Instantly Mrs. Alley remembered that if she had remained Mrs. White she would not be entitled to a pension. Almost as instantly it occurred to her that she had ever really been Mrs. White, and she flew to the United States Judge at Muscogee to have her second marriage declared null and void, in other words, non ex istent. The Judge took his time, but reached a decision this month. It was in her favor, and now the rehabiliated Mrs. White had applied for her pen sion, with every chance of getting it, so her lawyers say. N Y. Times. It requires good management to keep fertile soil in its original condition and at the same time grow good crops every year, but it requires much better man agement to grow good crops on land which has been cropped down, and then attempt to bui d it up. Millet makes an excellent hay crop, and should be sown this month. The best variety to sow is German millet. Sow a bushel to the acre, on well pre pared, fertile land, and harrow in lightly, and, if the ground be dry, roll after harrowing. The crop should be cut when in bloom and before the seed forms. If the crop is allowed to s:and until the seed forms and ripens, the feeding cf the hay to horses is attended with some risk, as the seed sometimes become impacted in the stomach, and and may cause trouble. We have never experienced this'trcuble ourselves, but have heard of cases. THE ALLIANCE PICNIC.
