Farm Notes.
—The recent rains will prove of
much value to those who have not
planted new strawberry beds. This
work should have been done last
month, but as there was a somewhat
“dry spell” in this section during
the latter portion of the month some
of the fruit growers were delayed.
Soils have such an influence on straw-
berries that it is impossible to select a
variety that will be suitable for all sec-
tions. Varieties that thrive well on
heayy, rich soils, such as the Sharp-
less and Atlantic, will be very unsatis-
factory on light, sandy locations. The
latter is perhaps the best shipping va-
riety known, as it is firm in texture
and can stand the heavy usage of
transportation, but it is rather a ghy
bearer, comes late, and does not throw
out many runners. The varieties
most generally used in the strawberry
sections at present are the Warfield,
Haviland, Belmont and Hautboy,
which are considered excellent market
kinds, but many other varieties are
used in preference where tests have
been made in order to discover a kind
particularly adapted for a field or sec-
The cause of beds running out very
rapidly is weeds. Make the rows eo
that the horse hoe can be used be-
tween them, and place the plants at a
distance of 18 inches apart in the rows.
They will throw out runners and cover
the vacant spaces. Plants set out this
spring will bear next spring. The
point is to keep down the weeds and
grass in the rows, which must be done
with a hand hoe. This will destroy
the weeds as fast as they appear and
leave but few to appear next season.
Should weeds and grass get the mas-
tery in the rows the bed might as well
be abandoned, as it will then be impos-
sible to clean the rows without destroy-
ing the plantsor runners. Just as soon
as the runners become rooted separate
them from the parent plants. It may
be laborious, but as the plants are se-
verely taxed to supply the runners the
effect of such extra labor will be found
of great advantage. In fact, there will
be no danger of applying too much la-
bor to & new strawberry bed the first
Before setting out the plants apply
wood ashes, it they can be had—about
40 bushels per acre. If not ashes, use
100 pounds of muriate of potash and
100 pounds of nitrate of soda, with 50
pounds of bone meal. Work it well
into the soil, first making the soil fine.
The ground should have been prepared
before now. In the fall apply 100
pounds of bone meal (ground as fine a8
possible), and early next spring apply
100 pounds of muriate of potash, using
125 pounds of nitrate of soda a month
later. By this method the plant food
will be provided at the proper periode,
the bone meal being less soluble than
the potash and nitrate. In selecting
varieties there must be both staminate
and pistillate kinds, or a failure will re-
sult. For family use the size of the
berry is not as important as the quali-
ty. New beds muet be put out with-
out delay, as it is nearly too late.
—May is an excellent month for
hatching chickens. The eggs will
give better results, and the chicks will
be more easily raised, owing to the ad-
vantages of the warm season and less
liability of loss from cold and exposure.
Let the hens hatch out a large lot of
chicks, as there will be quite a number
that will die from various causes, cats,
hawks, and other enemies thinning
them out.
Dairymen who wish to keep their
stock in good condition cannot look too
well to their feet and to the cleanliness
of the stalls. Cattle standing in the
stable are especially liable to that pain-
ful disease—foul in the foot. Lodged
matter causes inflammation, swelling
and discharge of pus, and a develop
ing fungoid growth, Clean, poultice
and apply carbolic acid.
When soil is firm and mellow, as it
should be, there 18 danger of setting 100
shallow. All plants should be as deep
when dirt is pressed about them as be-
fore taken from nursery rows, This
means, for strawberries, just even with
crown of plant ; black raspberries, four
to six inches ; red raspberries, currants,
gooseberries, six to ten inches ; and
grapes, 10 to 15 inches.
—Plant trees wherever a place can
be found for one, not only for fruit but
for ornament. Trees add moré value
to a farm than the buildings some-
times. Should shade be desired, time
is required for a tree to grow, and
those who purchase farms will always
take this fact into consideration.
—Y oung rose bughes should not be
delayed. Put them on a rich location,
but do not apply manure until they
are started. Manure should be well
rotted. It is not necessary to cultivate
deep for roses, but the surface of the
ground should be kept clean and loose.
Have you hauled aby more gravel
on the roads this fall than the law com-
pelled you to? If not you must not
complain this winter if a good roads
bill is passed that will compel yon to
pay your taxes in cath and somebody
else is hired to haul it out.
Do not be too economical with pota-
to seed. When cutting the seed leave
large pieces to the eyes. It is cousid-
ered an advantage to use whole pota:
toes, or cut them in haif by some.
not cut the potatoes into small pieces.
—Salt for cattle is more important
in summer than in winter. When the
cows are on grase, salt will be highly
relished by them, as it serves to keep
them in health.
A Syracuse Lady’
Suffered From Heart Trouble, Liver Complaint
and Rheumatism, and Was Cured.
The efficacy of Dr. Kennedy's Fav-
orite Remedy was substantially provent
in the case of Mrs. C. S. Abell, of this
Tes. Abell lives at No. 114 Roberts
avenue, where she was seen by a report-
er. She talked freely of her case and
said : “For a number of years I have
been troubled with liver complaint and
rheumatism that made me almost help-
Jess. I becameso ill I could scarcely
walk across the floor. One of our home
physicians informed me that I had
heart trouble and began treating me for
that. His treatment did no good. One
day I read of Dr. Kennedy's Favorite
Remedy which I purchased, and began
taking, and improved greatly. I have
now taken six bottles, and was never so
well in my life. I can say nothing but
kind words for Dr. David Kennedy's
Favorite Remedy, to which I owe so
much. I know of another case in which
Favorite Remedy restored to health a
friend who was thought incurable.”
Mrs. Abell also said she would be
glad to describe her case to any sufferer.
The family are quite as profuse in their
raise of Favorite Remedy as Mrs.
Abell herself.
Dr. David Kennedy's Favorite Rem-
edy is a never failing specific in disease
of the skin and blood. It restores the
disordered liver to a healthy condition
and corrects constipation. It is a cer-
tain cure for the diseases peculiar to
women. It cures scrofula, salt rheum,
erysipelas nervousness loss of sleep, or
that worn out feeling. In cases of
rheumatism, dyspepsia, Brights disease,
gravel diabetes and bladder trouble, it
has cured where all else failed. Dr.
David Kennedy’s Favorite Remedy is
sold by all dealers in medicine at $1a
bottle or six bottles for $5.
Venetian Glass.
The Workers in That City Produce Marvelous
Effects in Blended Colors.
The glass mosaics are brought from
Murano into the workshops at Venice
in the form of thin plates, and are cut
up into little cubes, or squares, in the
latter place. They are put away and
classified according to color, and this
working stock fills several large rooms.
Against all four walls of these apart-
ments stand huge cabinets, divided up
into what seem to be innumerable little
drawers and compartments, all num-
bered and catalogued like a veritable
museum. Each of the little compart-
ments contains possibly a thousand of
these little glass dises, of a particular
My guide told me, and from what I
saw myself, I am ready to accept the
statement as unquestionably true, that
over 5,000 different shades and colors
for the glass mosaics are made in Mur-
ano, and that there are from 12 to 15
tints to each color and shade. Think of
it! And then think of having this
enormous collections so systematically
arranged that any one tint of any
shade can be found without a moment's
This statement may seem startling,
but when it is considered that Salviati’s
artists are able to reproduce in exact
shadings, colorings and tone, any paint-
ing, it will be appreciated that this vast
number is hardly more than adequate.
An artist in oils or water colors can put
one color or wash over the other, de-
pending upon the opacity of one or the
transparency of another, until the exact
shade required has been obtained. Then,
by blending several shades he can soften
and tone them down by almost imper-
ceptible degrees, until actually, per-
haps, several hundred or more tints have
been produced in one bit of the paint-
ing—say that of a hand or face.—Home
