They came from all parts of a wide district, and included a considerable continsrent front ris; far away as Guhbower.

Straw berries are seen everywhere in uie fruit shops and in the lv.-tiuirants. and it seems that fur years past tlu>y had not made such an early appearance on tables in Paris. Perhaps the early abundance of the fruit. »s explained by a near discovery, which ls already em ployed by many gardeners, namely, th*' use of warm water in loreing the plants.
