^^^it^ARD. RXNGUfG'THE GRAPE VINE. At the. Massachusetts Experimental Station, where the ringing of grape vines has been practised since 1877, very careful experiments have been con ducted to Bhow the effect ot the process on the chemical composition of the grape. The tabulated results of thcxe experiments are referred to by, Protcs sor Bailey, of the Cornell University, one of the best known writers on horti cultural subjects.

POTATO GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 18 December 1907

POTATO GROWING. By H. 8. Chamberlain, of Irvlngton U.S.A. The potato Is partial to good soil, per haps more so than any otter farm crop. Although it rapidly adapts Itself to al most all kinds of soli It is highly im portant that one of a Ught nature Ebould be selected. The light soil permits the potato to attain a larger 'size than It would in heavy ground, because the re sistance to growth is less in the former case. A fertile sandy loam, well supplied wtth decayed plant material and with a good natural dialnage. Is quite deslraDte for. a good yield. Heavier soils may 'be readily made available for potato raising by proper drainage, by a generous appli cation of barnyard manure, or by ploughing under green crops. Heavy clay land is the poorest for growing tbls crop, end should not be used if the /arm has a tract of lighter soils. Experts . claim that a better quality potato can be grown before a sandy soil than upon any other; to be sure there must be sufficient organic matter pres...

POISONOUS PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 18 December 1907

POISONOUS PLANTS. It Is really a matter for surprise, con sidering the vast number of plants which are destructive to human life, that fatal accidents from their Inadvert ent consumption as food are not more frequent (observes 'The Globe'). It Is seldom, Indeed, that even children, de spite their propensity to eat anything which looks eatable, are poisoned by the products ol the garden or hedgerow. The. instinct of domestic, animate Js not an infallible preventive, for the clippings of ^£n? hedfwn hftVfi'nnt fnfrfinnpnfiw .i*aa« eaten by horses with deleterious effect Savages appear to possess a greater Im munity, but this may probably be. traced to careful Instruction from their Infancy with regard to dangerous plants.

LAYING WORKERS IN THE HIVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 18 December 1907

LAYING WORKERS IN THE HIVE. When a colony of bees is without a queen, or the means to rear one, laying workers will make their appearance sooner or later. It seems strange that one or more worker bees can develop the abUlty to lay eggs when a queen Is not present. Still more singular (writes a beekeeper In the 'Michigan Farmer') is the fact that the eggs will hatch. But the resulting bees are drones. Of more Interest than the fact that workers can lay eggs are tbe means of getting rid of them. The bees regard a laying worker— or workers, for more than one bee may be doing the mischie vous work— as their queen and will of tentimes obstinately refuse to accept a perfect queen. . ' ? ? If a colony la found that has cells filled with five, six or more eggs, laying work ers may be present. (Sometimes a young queen will lay more. than one egg in a cells/also queens of a very weak colony will deposit several egga la one cell.) It there are drone cells that have more xnan one egg in mem one...
