Grape Culture in the Northwest. Read by Mr. A. Kckcrt, of Detroit, Wash., at the recent meeting of the Pacific Coast Association of Nurserymen. About theyear of 1878 Lambert B. Evans. () f Florida, settled on Stretch island, one of ,] U ' numerous islands on Pttget Sound, and planted a vineyard of fifteen or twenty vims, which produced their fruit about 1883, hav ing grown his vines from cuttings. They matured their fruit perfectly for which he found a ready sale in the various logging ramps in his vicinity. In the fall of 1889, intending to go to California to engage in horticulture which has always been a pet hobby with me, I visited Mr. Evans at his island home and was surprised to learn that he successfully grew grapes, which I had been many times informed was one of the very few things that could not be grown in this wonderful country; except in Cali fornia. Mr. Evans supposed he was grow ing the Concord and Isabella, with the lat ter his favorite. This caused me to decide at o...

6 Ed. F. Bogardus' Observations in the East. Ed. F. Bogardus, of the firm of Lilly, Bo gardus & CO.. has returned from an exten sive trip throughout the eastern and middle states, traveling as far as Vermont and Xew Hampshire. The Xew England States had been suffering from a prolonged drought, which threatened ruin to the crops, but re freshing rains came at the most critical per iod, bringing them out all right. Conditions throughout the East generally arc good. Notwithstanding the labor troub les so generally prevailing, together with heavy liquidation of stocks which has been going on in Wall Street for some time, busi ness remains in a very healthy state. Mr. Bogardus visited a large number of manufacturing towns in the various states ill rough which he passed, and found the factories generally running under heavy orders. At Battle Creek, Mich., there are fifteen great factories turning out breakfast foods. This is where "Grape Nut" is manu factured, which has made a fortune...

How to Apply the Spray. I'lic spray should be applied to the , ;I vps and foliage so that a thin coat lug will remain after the water has e? apor«t«d. To do this the spray should be applied with great force so ;1S to form a dense mist. At all times ih,- solution in the tank should be kept thoroughly agitated, especially if I'jiris green is used. Probably the uost rapid progress in spraying can ie made in the following way: Drive he outfit between two rows and spray lialf of each tree in each row. The mites followed in an orchard should „ governed by the position of the ftter supply. If the wind is blowing i is best to go parallel with it rather han at right angles to it, and advan :ige may be taken of the wind by ilowing it to blow the mist into the rees. Time of Application of Spray. The most important consideration n spraying is the time of the ampli ation. The time of application for the oilling moth should depend entirely upon the stage of the insect, as the reatest efficiency i...

8 Horticultural Notes By F. Walden Th.c writer wishes to acknowledge the receipt of a small booklet entitled the "New Raspberry and Blackberry Culture," by J. F. Littooy, of Everett, Wash. Mr. Littooy is the horticultural inspector for Snohomish county. The pamphlet is well written and shows an intimate and thorough knowledge of the subject treated. 1 should judge that he is a practical berry grower. The man who writes from experience nearly always has something valuable to say. Much fun has been poked at the agricultural and hor ticultural editors who have written from the view-point of the editorial chairs rather than from the point of view of the field and gar den. But that day is passed and the paper that wants to keep in favor with the practical men of this day must have men to write on these topics from experience. There is an old saying that "experience is a dear school and fools will learn in no other," but the fools are not all to be found among those who have learned by ex...

IO Systems of Farm Management in the United States. (Continued from Page Two.) Types of Farm Management. it would perhaps be premature to attempt ■ classification of the various types of faun management that pre vail in different section! of the coun try. In fact the systems followed <>n different farms represent every grads tion between tlie farm where a single crop is grown and the product is all sold off the farm, and that on which no crops are grown, but large quanti ties of feed are bought and fed, if in deed thfl latter may be called a farm. Nevertheless, certain types may be more or less arbitrarily chosen, and each farm classed under one of these types, or considered as intermediate between them. It may be safely as sumed that the development and main tenance of soil fertility is the most important problem in farming. "With soil fertility assured the future of ag riculture may be considered safe. Types of farm management may there fore be established on the basis of th...

s THE RAPE PLANT, ITS CULTURE, USE AND VALUE. Among all forage plants possible and profitable of cultivation in Canada none seems worthier of a more exten sive use than rape. It is simple of culture; it makes a strong, rapid growth; it adapts itself quite readily to different soils and to various cli matic conditions; it responds vigor ously to fertilizer and to good culti vation; and, most important 01 all its good qualities, is a palatable, whole some and nutritious green food for all kinds of live stock on the average Canadian farm. Rape stems and leaves resemble those of Swedish turnips or rutabagas, but the roots are like those of cabbage. The leaves are numerous, smooth, more or less fleshy, irregular in out line and covered with a fine bluish bloom. The plant grows to a height of from one to four feet, according to soil and season. The variety most commonly used in Canada is the Dwarf Essex. Sev eral other sorts, most notably Dwarf Victoria and Broad Leaved, have been brought...

4 CREDIT IN THE STOCK BUSINESS. By Henry Wallace. A very large proportion of the business of the country is done on credit, either direct or indirect. It must be. There is not enough cash obtainable for use in more than a mere fraction of our commercial transactions. A has credit at his bank and borrows $500, leaving it on deposit, lie buys a team of horses of 15 and gives his check for the $500. I? has confidence in A's credit, accepts the check in lieu of the cash, and endorses it over to C, whom he owes. C may or may not know A but knows I. to be a man worthy of credit and accepts the check in payment of the debt. The $500 has therefore done the work of $1,500 — perhaps more —without leaving the bank vaults. Good credit is the most valuable posses sion of the business man. It can be secured in one of two ways, either by first securing visible property upon which to base it, or by building up a reputation for never asking credit without being both willing and able to "make good." ...

8 Horticultural Notes By F. Walden The fruit crop is pretty well raised. The next step is to put it into the market. In or der to achieve success in fruit growing the latter step is as important as the first. Many fail of success at this point. There are a number of things that must he done in hand ling a crop of fruit successfully. First of all great care must be used in picking the fruit. The idea is often quite prevalent that anybody can pick fruit. That is a mistake. A careless man has no business in the or chard at this time and, in fact, at any other time. Some men have a very stiff back and seem to be unable, or more probably, un willing, to stoop down and lay the fruit in the box or basket. How often we have to correct men in this respect. Some recom mend cushioned baskets for picking. This may not be necessary in the case of apples, but would be very beneficial in handling peaches. We find that we often have trouble with our pickers, who want to put the box in which they pu...
