at the Hull Thursday evening to an

readings Mr. J. E. Sullivan of Lake

Planting Nuts.
In planting walnuts, hickory nuts or
acorns the nuts should be kept moist
from the time they are gathered until
they germinate. If they are allowed to
dry out their vitality Is destroyed, says
a writer In the Farm and Home.
A good way to handle nuts Intended
for planting Is to stratify them. Thi
Is done by alternately placing a layer
of moist sand and a layer of nuts in u
box, being careful that the nuts do not
touch one auother. The box can be
kept lu the cellar or buried in the
ground, as preferred. The following
spring the nuts should be planted in
the nursery row or where the trees are
to stand.
