BURKE h cK __ ;, | a A v, afc. />*vv Jf5 ir . i f * ** •&«* GREAT many persons who are trying to grow straw- berries do not know that there is a question of sex In the plants. This is also true of many nurserymen, arnd scores of growers are disappoint- ed every year because the plants they fcuy do not bear fruit. The male plant in strawberries is %hat is known as the staminate or bi- sexual, a perfect flowering plant. The lemale plant is known as the pistillate, and unless it is planted along with the ki-sexual, or male plant, so that they *an be pollenized they will yield no truit. In the illustration it will be seen that in the center of the bl-sexual Cowers the pistils are surrounded by anthers, or bulb like protrusions, wfeich are filled with the flower-like ■ubstance called pollen, which is car- ried tb other pistils all over the patch, and this fertilizes them and thus every blossom becomes a berry.

"'There ain't no ham In this here sandwich,' a man growled, seated on a high stool before the marble bar of an old-fashioned railway restaurant. " 'Oh, you ain't come to the ham yet,' the attendant answered easily. "The man ate on a while longer. Then he growled again: " 'There ain't no ham yet.' " 'Oh,' said the attendant, 'you've bit over it now.' "—New York Tribune. Procrastination.
