With the potato the quality, as well as the quantity, is materially affected by the character of the soil. A loose, friable soil that will not bake into hard clods is best suitod to this crop. If there is no soil on the farm that is naturally of this charac ter, much may be done, in time, to improve any soil in this respect. In the* absence of sand, the quantity of vegetable matter may bo increased to improve the mechanical condition of the soil in thisrespect. This will have the additional advantage of giving a greater available supply of moisture in case of a dry season. For potato^ it is better...

Gem Photographs itself. In a very short time the iris will be extremely fashionable among well-dressed . women-all the more from the fact that it is impossible that it should become common. At present the total weight' of the gem docs not amount to more than ouc-ter.-thousandth part of that of diamonds. Hidden in a rugged muuiilaiii of Sau Diego, California, tho passes of olnVli urc guarded by armed men, are the only Known examples of the new gem, placed by connois seurs only next after tho dia mond, pearl, and emerald in beauty and surpassing all precious stones in the fact that it is believed, to contain rndiiun.
