Origin and Characteristics of.
I- Different Types.
In order that our readers may under-
stand more clearly the article- on
grape culture which are appearing in
our columns,-we offer a brief explana-
tion of certain terms much used by
iticiulturists, a term preferred by pro-
Sfessionals to the plain-sounding "grape-
growers." '-
When, for example, a certain grape is
-described as a vinifera, the meaning is
"'that it-is a cultivated variety of the na-
"ive European Vitis vinifera. Any La-
-brusca is traceable to the Northern fox-
"Z grape, Vitis Labrusca. Any aestivalis

.'less important riparia and vulpina

riparia (frost grape) and Vilis vulpina
The European or rilnofera grapes re-
quire more skillful management than
-the American species. Without assist-
-ance from America the European vine-
yards would have been exterminated by
that fatal d iseqse, phylloxera, and as it is,
their area has been greatly reduced.
Fortunately it was discovered that the
American grapes were proof against the
attacks of this disease. Therefore the
Europeans adopted the system of plant-
ing the American vines 'itlls riparia

S"of these with V. vinifera, thus perpetu-
ating the long-established favorites on
foreign roots. It was found that Amer-
ican roots are equally hardy if produced
from seed, and of the latter many thou-
sand pounds have been sent to Europe
fromm the United States.
Attempts have been made since the
first settlement of America to introduce
-t--e-lulropeanarieties of grape, but they
have not succee-dld in any State except
California,-though of late years we be-
lieve some success has resulted from
grafting on the Western sand grape (V.
rupestris). We would like to know how
this matter is managed by our corres-
pondent in Alachua county, and by
Prof. Dubois, of Leon. To grow vinifera

erable quantity, wohld be to invite
the phylloxera to this country, the germs
of which may be contained in any pack-
age of imported cuttings.
The Labrusca. grapes now 'n cultiva-
tion are "too numerous to mention."
They are most in favor for table use, the
fruit being large and handsome and of
fine flavor. The toughness of pulp is a
great objection and they are not consid-
ered good wine grapes. The Delaware

are the results of one or more crosses of
dTerent species Except in the case of
hybrids it I very easy to- recognize the
type or parent species of any.grape, for
they differ little in foliage from the wild

acteristics of fruit. Hence if a person

porters here have collapsed again. Their

I enclose a short account of the Sicil-
ian method of extracting essential oil
-- (essence) from the peel of tie lemon, etc.
Very truly yours,
The Sicilian'method of extracting the
essential oil essencee) frpm the peel of
the lemon,'sweet orange,' sour orange
'and bergarnot is as follows:
The operative with three strokes of a
sharp knife peels the lemon lengthwise,
then cuts-it in two and throws it into a
basket.- The peel falls into an eathern
Splatter below the chopping.block. Be-
fore the 'ssence is extracted the peels
are soaked 15 minutes in water, which
causes them to swell and offer a greater
Srsistance when pressed against the
sponge. In his left hand the operative
S holds a sponge, through which, that be
may grasp it the more firmly, runs-a
piece of reed, cane. The peel, piece by
piece, is pressed against the sponge two
S three times-in succession, simple pres-

feet in diameter; in their centre is a hole
6 inches in diameter; their' outer edge
turns back a half-foot. These mats are
filled with peeled lemons, and piled .one
on the other. A following block is
placed on top of these mats. These
presses have two wooden screws, firmly
set in masonry, about 6 feet apart.
There is a tap for each screw; the taps
are worked down by hand-lever. The
juice flows from the bed of the press
into tubs. If the juice is to be exported
raw, sound lemons only are pressed; if
the juice is to be boiled, which is gener-
ally the ease, 25 per cent. of spoilt-
lemons may be used. Lemon juice does
not keep well unless boiled. Sound fruit
when pressed yields a slightly perfumed
yellowish juice. The riper the fruit the
thicker the juice. The lemons remain
in the press twelve hours. Independent-
ly of the intrinsic quality of the lemons,
the amount of juice and its degree of
acidity varies from month to month.
The yield is 'greatest in the spring, but
of less acidity, owing to the winter
There is a machine for cutting up the
lemons, but the Sicilians are wedded to
their old methods of hand labor.
In 1885 the concentrated lemon juice
exported from Messina was valued $298,-
707, of which $49,203 worth was shipped
to the United States.
Taxes in Italy are very onerous. Man-
ufacturers, fearing an increase of taxa-
tion', should the extent of their business
become known, are so reticent that it is
impossible to ascertain accurately their
profits from the lemon juice industry.

Protection Against Frost.
BY 0. H. G.
Editor Flo'ida Farmer and F-uit-Grower:
A simple, cheap.and effectual protec-
ion against frost may be had by a prop-
r use of "light-wood" and sawdust.

throughout the vegetable patch before
he field or garden is planted. Then
'hen the crop is up and in danger of
oss by frost, watch the thermometer,
nd when you see it pulling rapidly be-'
ow 40 deg. go into your field or garden,
build fires of the "light-wo6d," and when
t is burning brightly, smother' the
lames with a few shovelfuls of saw-
ust, not enough to put the lire out, but
enough to create a dense column of
moke, which will spread over the field
,nd prevent any injury from frost.
The writer has tried this plan with
perfect success. Last March, on one
old frosty night, with the temperature
at 80 deg., he saved, with twenty fires
turning, three acres of Irish potatoes
rom being cut down. Less than five
per. cent. of the plants were touched,
while in other fields whole crops were
ost that night. The pine woods are full
of "light-wood" and nearly every settle-
ment has its saw-mill.

I--Details of Work Preliminary
to Plowing.
Editor Florida Farmer and F,-it-Grower:
I propose to give my method of bring-
ing the common pine land of this coun-
try into a suitable condition for raising
fruits and vegetables suited to the
climate. To do this intelligently would
--maIke an article too long for your col-
umn&. I therefore propose to write sev-
eral a-ticles on this subject, which I
think is -of much importance to those
coming from other sections of the coun-
try, where everything is so entirely dif-
In these articles, I shall tell how I do
it here, and the reader must bear in
mind, that with different surroundings,
and under other circumstances, the mo-
dus would haye to be very much modi-
fled, or perhaps entirely changed. For
instance, I ate-within two miles of Pen-
sacola, where rtan procure large quan-
tities of oyster shells -for making lime. I
can get, from the saw mill near by,
quantities of ashes, theresuiz -f burning
the slabs and refuse lumber.
I use both the lime and ashes tio.ly
because our pine lands are deficient in
both lime and potash, which must be
supplied in some form before we can
grow satisfactory crops. Under differ-
ent circumstances I should use commer-
cial lime instead of the shells, and
kainit instead of the ashes.
I will also state, that in Pensacola
there is a good demand for cord wood
and much of the timber is sold off the
land in that shape. In other situations
it might be better to convert it into
charcoal, or make it into rails, or to burn
it on Ihe ground.
I will .,tite that mine is the ordinary,
high, dry, pine land of the country, de-
ficient in lime, potash and humus. The
growth is long-leaved pine, with an uin-
dergrowth of black-jack, white oak,
running vines, saw palmetto, and wire
grass. I am at this time preparing ten
acres for cultivation, and will proceed to
tell as plainly as possible how I shall
dol t. ..
-For the ten acres I shall want a thous-
and bushels of shell lime, which I shall
burn on the-land.- -This will require five
heaps, each containing one hundred
barrels, or. twenty one-horse cart loads
of shells.
The shell heaps are made in this way:
Selecting a spot where the pines of a
suitable size grow near each other, a
sufficient number are cut down, and cut
into lengths of twelve feet. Two of the
largest are then placed parallel with each
other and ten feet apart. Upon these a
floor of logs is laid, and upon the floor ,
wall of logs is built up three ft-et high,
securely notched down as in building a
jog lihouse. This is then filled in with
shells, ai--ii,'ill-Id off. when ano her
floor is laid as before, aud the wval built
up three feet highe;-,-again filled with
shells and covered with logs as before,
upon which a few movie loads of shells
may be thrown.
Now trim up all the tops and large
limbs of the trees which have been cut
downto form the pen, and set them up
on end all airound-the heap, throwing
the brush on thetop, and your shell
heap is finished. In a few weeks it will
S be sufficiently dry to burn, and can be
easily fired-'at the bottom.. The shell
heaps finished, all'tlek remain ingg im nber
'- is cut down, split into cord woo6d. and
S- hauled off the land and spld. -I usually
S get twenty c0rd froiaiii acr_.-anid'the
price'ib'Pensacola is about' two' dollars
and a half a cord.' .
-' The next thing Is to cut. upall the tops
and limbs and put them in suitable
S piles ready to burn, taking care not to
place any _eaps too near the fence or the
shell heaps Af'ter plowing a space at
S least ten feet wide around the fence, and
also cleaning up well around the shell
heaps, i(for we are not ready to burn
them yet), we apply the torch, and keep
things hot until all the he'al, are con-
The-land is now clean, with the excep-
tion of the bushes and such chips as were
not burned with the brush heaps. The
bushes and palmettoes must now be
carefuUly giubbed up, and gathered in
S heaps, upon which the remaining chips
and trash must be placed, and burned as
soon as sufficientl7dry. If the work
has been properly done your ten acres
now look clean and smooth, aprid seem
S to be ready for the plow; but-6ne more
thing of importance yet remains to be
done. -
k,.-- Examine every stump in the field, and
Scut close 3o the- stump every root which
S comes within four inches of the surface.
After being cut loose from the stump
the root can be ea-ily ripped up from the
ground, when they should" be bitit into
.. lengths of three or four feet and burned.
i" Now you are ready for the plow.
i In a future article I will tell how to
put the ten acres in fine condition for the
first crop, Ihe most desirable crop to
-- plant, how to fertilize and cultivate the
same; and also thie probable profits. for
the land must and will pay the expense
of bringing it up, from a condition of
sterility to"one of remunerative fer-

and pine straw raked and hauled from
the woods in November and December."
Oak leaves and pine straw coiId not
be rotted in an ordinary compost, such
as you mention, and in the time spoken
of, except in very small quantity. Pre-
sumably you wish to use 'hem in large
quantity; in that event it would be bet-
ter to c-impost them by themselves with
lime, ashes and salt, and in spring, when
ready to be applied, mix such compost
with the cotton seed compost. To every
six two-horse wagon loads of leaves and
straw add 'en bushels of quick lime,
slacked with water saturated with salt.
Dampen the leaves and mix the lime
thoroughly with them; put in pens and
tramp moderately firm, and cover with
rich. earth. If you can get ashes use five
bushels of ashes and five of lime in
place of ten bushels of lime.
The cotton seed may be composted in
the usuil manner, say: Twenty bushels
of cotton seed, 200 pounds of acid phos-
phate and 100 pounds of kainit. Wet
the seed thoroughly, mix in the phos-
phate and kainit, tramp ,horoughly in
pens and cover with earth. If it gets
too hot to bear the hand in it, make nu-
merous holes through it with a crowbar
and pour in water, as n-uch as it will
absorb. In spring, when ready to haul
to the field, the two composts may be
mixed. The proportion is not important;
the leaf compost may be used very free-
ly, two or three two-horse wagon loads
oer acre; the cotton seed compost in the
quantity mentioned above-say twenty
to twenty-five bushels per acre.
The high alkaline earth called Kainit,
the product of German mines, is being
imported into this country in rapidly in-
creasing'in quantities. Within a few
years it has gained a high standing
among the farmers of the South as being
the best and cheapest form in which
they can obtain that essential element of
fertility, potash. A writer for the
Times--Democrat speaks of it.as follows:
Kainit or German potash salt is now
being used extensively in all parts of
the South Atlantic States, and as a rule,
with the most -satisfactory results. The
majority of our farmers, however, are
not as familiar with its adaptation to
special crops as they are with ammoni-
ated fertilizers. The very best of these
are not complete manures and do n't
contain all the elements needed by poor
land, wherefore their use upon such land
often. results in disappointment.
Good land naturally contains so many
of the essential elements of fertility-that
beneficial results are apt to follow the
application of these manures upon them.
Many goils, although rich in phosphates,
are lacking in potash, and consequently
do not give a full crop. Peaty or
swampy ground that has been well
drained, light sandy land, and old fields
that hare been exhausted br many yeauS
of cultivation, utiuallv stIt,id mnwst in
need of potash, and will not yield good
cops unless. the element is supipli.d.
As p,,tahli us an element that is re-
moied in large propoi tius l.y riea ily all
crops, its constant restitution t, theo-loil
is imperative. An indirect gain from
using potash salts or kainit is that a soil
well manuredi with it attract- moisture
from the atmosphere and retains It
longer than it would do otherwise, and
in our dry climate, subjected to pro
traced drought., this-is a very impor-
tant consideration.
Kainit was first introduced into the
South about ten years ago, and has since
won favor, generally, among farmers.
',Wh'erever it hs been tised. it has given
mutih satisfaction on account of "Its val-
uable-'qualities as a fertilizer and ten-
dency-. to prevent rust. It principally
abounds ;n potash, and its other valuable
ingredients are soda. magnesia, and
common salt. Most of it is imported
from Germany, where it exists in the
natural state, and is dug from the mines;
but some of it thit is sold in this coun-
try is made artificially, by mixing salt,
potash, and some of the other ingredi-
ents. and there is not much practical
difference in any of it.
The average contains about seven
times as much potash as aiiy minjo-
uiated f:t'e-rtliz-r, and on that a,-':-uir, iE
especially valtible 'or use on sandy or
impoverished lands. It. may be used
very advantageously, just as guano-
that is, by being put directly into the
drills at the rate of 200 pounds per acre
-and for small grain or cow peas it is a
Smost'valuable manure. When used for
corn or cotton, stable manure or cotton
seed should always be applied with it, to
furnish the ammonia, of which it is very

The Useful Mole. .
SThe mole is now chronicled as one of
the farmer's friends. Rev. Mr. Wood,
in a lecture describing the nature and
habits of ;this industrious little animal,
says that the mole is a burrower in the
natural pursuit of his vocation; devout-
ing the pupa of the caterpillars and
ground worms, he is-compelled to throw
up those little mounds of earth to which
farmers so) strongly object-because they
look untidy. Koles do not damage
crops, because they are strictly insectiv-
erous and carniverous, and utterly dis-
dain cereals or roots. They are really
benefactor.., because they supply the
farmer with a top-dressing of unexhaust-
ed earth. .The learned lecturer described
the mole as anatomically formed for
burrowing, "cylindrical and jointed at
the foremost end, with muscular fore-
arms and spade-like hands with long
claws like smart digging machines." He
has eyes, but very small ones, delicate
hearing and a pre-eminentsense of smell,
upon wHich he chiefly depends for pro-
curing food. He will bite, scratch and
fight like a fiend, and always to the
death when pitted against another mole.
The mole is rather a friend to the farmer
than an enemy, as commonly voted.-

The Agricultural Attractions of
Dade County./

Editor Florida Farmer and .-u4GOwer:
There is something so antipodal in
farming in South Florida to what the
Northern agriculturist is used to, that he
is much surprised when he comes to thi3
section and finds there is really an open
or farm season of twelve months in the
yrar, and every day's labor can be made
to tell profitably in the way of actual
progress and future development.
At the cold North nature demands and
takes a time of rest-old mother Earth
wrapped in her snowy blanket asks a re-
spite, and the faithful farmer must de-
sist from his efforts until the open days
of spring and the green robes of promise
assure him that the sleep is over, and the
process of production must begin again.
During this time of suspension the
farmer must enjoy his hard earned pro-
duce, or, if that be short, purchase his
After a selection of land is made here,
the clearing commences. Of course a
house of some kind must be erected. It
need not be too comfortable, for the life
is an out-door one and piazzas are more
sought than rooms. Keep in mind that
the thermometer seldom ranges lower
than 40 deg. or higher than 90 deg.
Fencing is hardly necessary, as by gen-
eral consent stock Is restrained, and it
will be found more profitable to do so
than to allow ranging.
A crop of sweet potatoes is the best
first effort for a settler to make. Among
these may be planted the banana,
orange, lime, lemon, alligator or avo-
cado pear, cocoanut, mango, sapadilla,
and in fact all but trees of a tropical
growth; which will in the future yield
food and revenue. Th'n pine apple
planting should receive attention. May
is the month to obtain slips and plant,
eighteen months from planting you
should have ripe pine apples.
To meet running expenses your land
should be ready by October for Irish po-
tatoes, beans, tomatoes, cucumbers and
egg plants. These will be ready by De-
cember and January for shipment.
First to Key West, thence to New Or-
leans, Galveston, New York, or Jackson-
ville, and they will be ahead of all others
shipped from Florida, except possibly
from Monroe county.
Our lands are of three kinds, ham-
mock, prairie, and pine. Hammock as
soon as cleared is ready for planting and
will need no fertilizing for three years
at least. Prairie land needs slight drain-
age, and should be plowed and allowed
to lose its sourness. Pine land must be
heavily fertilized either by natural or
commercial composts. Cotton seed

Southern Grasses.
The follow ug is 1n extra.,t from a
paper read by Mr. A. P. Farnsby at the
Interstate Agricultural and Industrial
Convention at Jackson, Tenn.:,
Even in the South, where the grasses
are least cultivated, there are more val-
uable grasses to be found growing than
in any other part qf the world. We have
nativegrasses adapted to every condition
of soil and climate, grasses that the
overflows of the Mississippi cannot
drown, and grasses that wilt not stairve
.n poor hillsides where the chemist can-
Snot find any ploint food. We have grasses
that neither heat north cold can stop grow-
ing. We have grasses for hay. for pas-
ture, for wet land, for dry larid, for rich
land, for pQorlanidl, for clay land, and
Sfor sadv' land, Thiireare no conditions
Sof soil that we hare not a grass to suit.
* There is no excuse for a single bare place
on any farm in the S6uth, for Lespedeza
will grow everywhere. If there he one
beast in the South that goes without
-enough grass to satisfy its wants, either
winter or summer, it is not because the
land will not grow it, but because man
doies *..ot cultivate it. Because the people
* of the South yearly spend millions of
money for commercial fertilizers, we
- must'not conclude thot the land will not
grow sufficient grass almost without any
expense to the planter, to Support cattle,
hogs, sheep and horses to make manure
enough to almost do away with the ne-
cessity of using commercial fertilizers.
Nowhere else" are.good lands, so cheap
and where the expenses of the farmer are
so small as here in the South. Yet
nowhere else in the world is so much
land being ruined by the plow as here.
Every State has its thousands of acres on
the eve of being ruined, Nowhere else
is there so little land subject to waste
from cultivation in comparason to the
level land, than here. Nowhere else in
the world is there less necessity fQr the
ruin of the hill line than here. We have
more level land than we can work, yet

We intend to devote a column of our
splice to communications asking for re-
,plies, but have concluded not to bring
out our letter box till a week later. Mean-
while we assure our enquiring friends
that t' ey are, if neglected, not forgotten.
'It i's not often that a newspaper is af-
fected by a spell of. cloudy weather, but
the continuous cloudiness of the past
week has materially altered the appear-
ance of thefirst page of our present is-
sue. .-The first two columns were to be
devoted to the Kelsey Japan Plum; the
.matter was in type and a fine drawing,
in the hands of Dr. Cuzner, was await-
jing the '!process," for which at least a
moment of sunshine is essential.
But Old Sol refused to come out, and
we had to lay the Kelsey on the shelf,
and substitute another fruit. The sub-
ject adopted is a natural continuance of
the previous-chapter on grapes; but "va-
riety is the spice of life" and of a news-
paper, and we-aim not to treat of the
same fruit in consecutive numbers. :
Unless the sun continues in its present
mood a week longer, we shall present
our readers with an illustrated account
of the Kelsey Plum in the next number,
and of the Japan Persimmon in the
number following. Meanwhile we de-
sire notes on either fruit from persons
who have had experience with them.

We Floridians would be quite content
to have two days of the year stricken
entirely from the, calender, namely, the
warmest and the coldest, or still bet-
ter, the coldest two, for surely our ex-
tremes of heat are not to be complained

of. To the people of the Northwest, our
coldest weather might seem, by compar-
ison, "-ethereal mildness"; but it is not
of ourselves we think half so much as
the danger to our winter fruits.'
Every winter has its period of maxi-
mum cold, and because that maximum
averages too near the danger line, our
golden fruit becomes a source of uneasi-
'ness until about the middle of January.
The-weather record' of the signal office
at Jacksonville d.s tiot represent fairly
the weather of the orange region as a
whole, but if the people of Duval county
derive encouragement from that cord,
still ifiore so can they of Enam. Or-

these thirteen years has been- reached:
once in November, eight times in Decenm-
ber, and nine times in January; and that'
with the exception of 1885 and 1872, the
lowest temperature occurred before the
middle of'January.
SThis.and other considerations lead to
the belief that- no farther danger need
be apprehended this winter, and that

When out of the body the soul is sent,
As a bird speeds forth from the open tent,
As the smoke flies out when it finds a vent,
To lose itself in the spending-
Does it travel wide? does it travel far,
To find the place where all spirits are?
Does it measure long leagues from star to star,
' And feel its travel unending?
And caughtby each baffling, blowing wind,
Storm-tossed and beaten before, behind,
Till the courage fails and the light is blind,
Must it go in search'of its heaven?
I do not think that it can be so, -
For weary is life as all men know,
And battling and struggling to and fre,
-Man goes from his morn to his even.
And surely this is enough to bear
The longday's work in the sun's hot glare,
The doubt and the loss which breed despair,
The anguish of baffled hoping.
And when the end of it all has come,
And the soul has won the right to its home,
I do not believe it must wander and roam
Through the'infinite spaces groping.
No, wild may the storm be, and dark the day,
And the shuddering soul may clasp its clay,
Afraid to go and unwilling to stay,
But when it girds it for going.
With a rapture of sudden consciousness,
I think it awakes to a knowledge of this,
That heaven earth's closest neighbor is,
/And only waits for our knowing.
That 'tis but a step from dark to day,
From the worn-out tent and the burial clay,
To the rapture of youth renewed for aye,
And the smile of the saints uprisen;.
And that just where the soul, perplexed .and
Begins its journey, it meets the Lord,
And finds that heaven, and the great reward,
Lay just outside of its prison!

Study Your Plants.
To grow plants well it is necessary to
study them. If you do this you will-
soon find -out what treatment -they.
need, and you will do this if you :love
flowers. If you do not love them, and
try to grow them simply because it
is "the style" to have plants- in the
house, the sooner you give up the "at-
tempt the better, for you will never suc-
ceed in having good plants. Be sure of
that. House plants are generally put
out -of doors-in the summer. Some
turn them out of their pots into the open
ground. Here, they make a vigorous
growth, but when.it comes time; to take
them up. and get them into pots for the
house, it will be found 1 hat the roots
have made a rampant growth and a:
large share of them will have to be cut
off. This necessitates a corresponding
cutting-back of the top, and the plant is
greatly injured at the very time when it
should be strong and .vigorous. I pre-
fer: to keep my plants growing in pots all-
summer, on a veranda, shaded from the
hot 'sun of mid-day and afternoon.
When-it comes time -to take tIhem into
the house they are not injured by any
violent change, anid are ready to begin
their winter's work.- Hammond's

The Euchee Valley.
BY "G."-
,Editor Florida Farmer and jfrui-Gr-ower:
If a tired and dusty traveler, wornout
with the fatigue of railroad travel and
the monotonous view of pine woods,
could be suddenly transported to the
Euchee Valley, he would be tempted to
exclaim, "Surely this is Paradise!"
No wonder the hardy Highlander who
first beheld these wondrously beautiful
scenes went back to the Scottish colony
in Alabama and tempted them to come
farther on in their search 'for a goodly
Ou the east flowed the Choctaw-
hatdhee river, and through the centre
of the valley ran a large creek, the
waters of both teeming with the finest
fish. The woods furnished game in
abundance. Wild deer and turkeys
roamed in almost domestic tameness
everywhere. The lands were rich,
easily cleared and cultivated, and yielded.
a variety of food crops.
Though sixty-five years have passed
away since the first settlement, and two
generations of Scottish descendants have
subsisted in this lovely region, large
tracts of the best lands are still un-
cleared, and much of the pristine beauty
yet remains. Here are vast acres cov-
ered with a magnificent growth of
beech, hickory and oak trees. Some-
times one comes upon a clump of large
water-oaks, overhanging a spring of
-clear water, their -branches gracefully
festooned with long, waving mos. On

say some other diet is best. The fact is,
any food. properly cooked and rightly
eaten, in proper quantities, and at sea-
sonable hours is conducive to health. In
the abuse of food, ill cooking, over-eat-
ing and eating at improper times, is
where all the trouble originates. A rare
beefsteak, a good mutton chop, wll
masticate-.d in proper quantity, can
scarcely fail to agree with a, healthy
There is an inquiry for the best diet
for brain workers. The digestive organs
being s6und, give plenty of well prepared
meat, eggs, fish, vegetables, milk, cream,
and butter, with good bread (ah article
not easily found). Fish is especially val-
uable as a brain and nerve food; it. is
rich in phosporous and nitrogen, and is
good diet, for those suffering from ex-'
austed brain and nerves.
The brown bread of New England
should be used by all classes (rich and
poor), in health, as it is one of our best
heat-producing foods. As an article of
diet it is as good or better than Graham
bread. The Boston Indian pudding is
also one of the best culinary productions
from corn meal, and should te on every
table. Fruit should be -freely taken in
the morning or at dinner, but not in the
I cannot leave the fruit subject with-
out saying something about the apple.
It is par excellence our best fruit. A
good mellow apple will digest in an
hour and a half. Baked apples at the
morning meal, with brown or Graham
bread, butter and milk, with fish or soft-
boiled eggs, constitute a diet conducive
to health, and one which has an excel-
lent effect on the digestive organs, cor-
"recting acidities, removing constipation,
and leaving the intestinal tract in ad-
mirable condition. The attainment or
preservation of good health consists in
observing the little things, the minutiam
of dietetic science.
The Use and Care of Lamps.
A contributor to the New York Ana-
lyst says:

secure the proper tension; and one or
more strands should be used if sheep or
swine are to be kept inthe'pasture.-Ex.

Home Hints.
Clean straw matting with a cloth and
salt water, wiping dry. This keeps it
from turning yellow.
To remove paint splashes on window
glass, moisten the spots with a strong
solution of soda, then rub hard.
It is said that red ants will never be
found in a closet or drawer if a small
bag of sulphur is kept in those places.
The lime in a tea kettle may be
softened so that it can be scraped off by
boiling a piece of alum as large as a
walnut in the kettle full of water for
half an hour or more.
To stone raisins easily pour boiling
water over them, let them stand a few
minutes to soften, then drain off. The
seeds can be readily pinched out at
the stem end; a knife will expedite mat.
ters a little.
To keep butter hard without ice, take
a new earthen flower pot, wash it clean,
wrap the outside of it in several thick-
nesses of wet cloth and set it over the
dish containing the butter, where there
will be a free circulation of air about it.
The best way to brighten a carpet is
to put a half tumbler of spirits of tur-
pentine in a basin of water and dip the
broom in it and sweep over the carpet
once or twice, and it will restore the
color and brighten it up until one would
think it new.
The bane of many a home is the kitch-
en slop pipes, emitting a death-dealing
smell. Now, harm from this can be in
a large measure prevented by an occa-
sional wash-out of the pipe with water
in which chloride of lime or copperas
(sulphate of iron) has been dissolved.
These soultions will kill all bacterial life,
the one thing to be aimed for. The cost
is almost nothing; the saving may be
beyond, computation. Take the only
safe course.-Ex.

Farmers often fall over a stumbling
block in regard to fertilizers by thinking
that barnyard manure costs them noth-
ing, since it is a natural income from the
keeping of stock. But when it comes to
paying out .the direct profits of the farm
for commercial fertilizers, you touch the
main point upon which they base their
opinion.-New England Homestead.
Groves where Williams, Clark & Co's

Seed Irish Potatoes.
The best potatoes for planting in this
State are those brought from extreme
Eastern points. Acting on this belief,
we imported last year from
large quantities of Early Rose, Chili
Red, Beauty of Hebr'mn and other varie-
ties, and the potatoes raised from this
seed, were the finest we have ever seen
We willreceive, in a few days another
cargo of the same potatoes, which we
will sell at the following prices:
Chili Red........per barrel $8.50.

Every barrel guaranteed as represented.

Mr. R. J. Broad, of Welaka, Putnam

have used Williams, Clark &.Co's High

and Vegetables, with the greatest satis-
faction and profit, and in using their
goods I believe I have received full value
for my money. I most-heartily recom-
mend their fertilizers."
"We Know by Experience."
For three years we have used Brad-
ley's Vegetable" Fertilizer. After test-
ing along with.other high grade fertil-
izers, we pronounce it better than any
sold in Florida. We shall use it again
this year.
We do not hesitate to say to the vege-
table growers of Florida that they can-
not use anything so good as Bradley's
Florida Vegetable Fertilizer. We know
by expe-ience what we say regarding
this fertilizer.
