IZearÜt and Home says boue dust mny bc sown broadcast over strawbcrry beds ia eavly spring or at any othcr time during tbc nummer. It is better to apply in rainy weatlier, os íiien tlie soluble portions an: mmedi&telj carrid down to the rootg of tho plants. If the strawberriea are cultivntd in huls, tben a handful of bone to each will be eufficient. We ueually apply it on the surface, and t'nori work it witli a hoe or cultivator. The quantity to be applied per acre sho'uid bo var'ud accordiiig to tho richness of the snil ; if poor, a balf ton, or even a ton, will do no harm, but much good. We consider bone a valuab!c fertillzer for all kinds of bou, and there is littlo danger of applying too much, providod it is mixed with the soil. There are somc men who will wolk u to tbc carmon's ïuoulh, and somc women wiio will walk up to a loyer's, without hrinking.
