NOTICE in your issue of .luly Mr. Brinkley's inquiry in relation to the burning oft of old strawberry beds, writes J. H. Hale in Strawberry Cul- lurisl. I am not much of a believer in old strawberry beds, still 1 know that under certain conditions they are fairly profitable, for on old beds the fruit ripens a week or so earlier than the same varieties in new beds. In years past I had a considerable experience in burning over old beds, but il has nearly always been within two or three weeks after the fruiting season when I have a mowing machine go over and cut down berry plants, weeds grass, and everything quite close to the ground and then in a few days af ter all were thoroughly dried and there was a good fair wind blowing I have started llres on the windward side am burned the Held over rapidly; this kill- Ed all fungus diseases, Insects, weed seeds, etc., and injures but few ot the plants, although occasionally where Ihe roughage is a little heavy it may man and team filling gullies and chuck-holes, and doing a little grading of steep bluffs, would be worth' twenty dollars on a few farms with which I am acquainted. It would save wear ot wagon, team and driver's temper, and make it possible to increase the size, of loads without danger of overload- ng. This work should be done thoroughly and on time. I prefer having t done a month before harvest, so that some wear may make It smooth. These are "details," but details count. A man will spend half a dollar to go to a circus and be happy two hours, while hat half a dollar expended in permanently getting rid of some nuisance would save him from being mad a month, if all the little vexatious times could be shoved togelher and be thus measured.

If this burning ° ver can be done just before a rain storm 1 have found the plants start new leaves very rapidly. I have some times after the burning run a smoothing harrow over the entire field to loosen up the ground a little; this tears out a few plants, but does no harm to matted beds; it Is someMmes advisable after the harrowing to run a cultivalor over between the rows and loosen up the ground, which helps to stimulate a new growth more rapidly. What effect mowing off the tops and burning tho field laler in the season would do I am not sure, but the fruit crowns will be forming late in August and early in September, and I would not think that burning over at this season would be safe or advisable. I am rather of the opinion now that as far south as Norfolk, where fruitage was ended in May, that it would be bettor to defer burning until very early next spring, sometime in late February or early March, when the ground was dry enough, a quick fire over Ihe field might do some good. Some years ago I had an accidental lire get into an old strawberry field early in spring and burnt off the tops and a lot of old hay mulch and where this burning over was, the fruit was earlier and better than where left undisturbed; still one accidental success of this kind would not be a guarantee that like results would follow every such burning. Power «f AnttnnlHi The digestive and assimilative powers of animals are much more vigorous when they are young than when they have grown old, and in selecting cattle for feeding purposes this should be borne in mind. This difference is plainly shown in the tesls lhal have been made from time to time, the gain being much more rapid during Ihe first two years than it is afterwards, and the profits from (ceding correspondingly greater. U is frequently the case, to he sure, that old cattle grow very fat, but it must he borne in mind that this hns come about from long-continued feeding, aud the qtiestion is to be considered whether, when the value of tho food consumed is taken into account, there is any profit loft. In the selection ot animals it should not be taken for granted that a largo beast will necessarily cat more than a small one, for this is not always the case. Much depends on Ihe powers of asslmllalion. II has ofen been noticed that one lot of cattle will thrive and make rapid gain on much less food than another. Careful watching of the stock while being fattened, and keeping an accurate account of the cost of food consumed, will soon enable a man to make such selections as may be depended on to show good returns.—Ex.

Wo are now importing from foreign countries agricultural products of an average value of $3Sn,CDl,012, which is a little more than one-half of all our importallons of all kinds. Some of Ihese importations cannot bo profitably produced here; a large share of them can nnd ought to be produced hero by American farmers. This would give employment to labor in this country and ought to be produced here by American farmers. This would give employment to labor in this country and keep at homo the millions that go abroad to pay for foreign labor. Such diversification would also reduce Ihe production of the cereals which have been produced in lale years at a loss. It is folly for us to try to force upon consumers more of any product than their wants demand. We must learn to supply them wilh what they want and then make them pay fair prices for the same. In this way we may exercise some control over our business and realize some profit on our labor and investment.—J. H. Brigham. HOG CHOLERA r thu Prevention _____ j\NTI-TOXlNE.

The old plan ot burying, or putting cabbage in trenches during winter, or for winter use, has become obsolete, and a more simple and easy plan has been adopted. Where cabbage Is grown on a large scale for shipping purposes, the best plan is to lift the cabbage and stack them two tiers deep and as closely as they can bo placed in uu orchard, or wood if convenient, and cover with leaves to the depth of two or three inches, the leaves to be kept in place by a slight covering of earth, says American Gardening. In this way the heads will keep perfectly sound all winter, and they can be easily taken up as wanted for shipping. For family use cabbages can be kept in the same way, only It will not be necessary to make the second layer. It is quite important to keep them a little below the freezing point. It has been suggested to keep them in some convenient building, but* this plan has always resulted in failure, as the dry atmosphere is fatal; cabbage must be kept moist and cool, the slightest wilting renders it unlit for Ihe lable.

Concerning methods of keeping grapes, Consul-General Jones writes from Rome, Italy: "A recent bulletin of the School of Agriculture of Scandicci, Italy, describes experiments made by Professor Marchl for the keeping of grapes fresh during the win- er. A certain quantity of grapes (comprising different qualities) were hung up in a cool and dry place, all damaged jerries having been previously removed; a second lot was packed in dry, pulverized peat in wooden boxes. At the end of four months the grapes tha had been hung up had become decayed i and had dropped off; on the other ] hand, those that had been packed in the boxes were found to be in fine condition. This is, therefore, a simple and economical method. Another one consists in gathering the bunches with a good bit of stem attached and immersing their tips in bottles containing water and pulverized charcoal.
