From the results of potato raising derived from the experience of specialista and the tests made at the various experiment stations of the country, there seems 0 be little occasion to doubt that light seeding forthe potato erop is followed by a far smaller erop than the use of large seed wouldgive. Director Sanbörn, now of the Utah station, summarizes the average of seven years' experiment work of lis own on two college farms of the east n seeding for potatoes as follows, in the jroduct per acre: f Bushels. from seed of wholo potatoes, large 224 ÏYom seed of whole potatoes, small 177 Trom seed of stem end of potato 14H rromseed of seed end of potato 188 rromono eye to liill 81 rrom two eyes to liill int From three eyes to liill 160 Later trials with seed ent lengthwise of the potato showed that system was the most economical of any tried. The Ohio station, In commenting on the above, says ita own experimenta are in general accord with it. The largest crops have come from whole seed, but the most profitable crops have come from large cuttings. Mr. E. S. Carman's experiments led him to the conclusión that the size of the seed to be planted should be determined by the habits of the variety, and not by any fixed rule. He considers the advice to use whole seed as bad, for while with some varieties it may be sound, with others it will result in small tubers every time. He advocates large pieces containing two or three eyes as a ?ood general rule. Introduclng Queeus. Mr. E. A. Morgan, of Wisconsin, writing in The Bee Keepers' Review, recommends in introducing queens the plan of first caging the removed queen a few minutes in the cage that is to be ased in coafining the new queen. The theory is that the old queen leaves a scent in the cage that the bees recognize and thus mistake the new queen for their former sovereign. Mr. Morgan stops up the entrance to the cage with good candy and allows the bees to at once begin the work, eating out the candy. He says he has practiced tbis method three years, sometimes in terrible dearth, and never lost a queen. He often fonnd a queen laying in three houre from the time that the old queen was removed. Au Important Polut in Setting; Cabbacea. 1 Many readers have doubtless been trtmblea with cabbage growing stalky and not heading well. It is told in Country Gentleman that if pains are taken in setting out the plant, to get the tap or main root set down perfectly straight, this difficulty will be overeóme, ynlike the tomato plant, which will ïhrive set down in any shape, I have never seen a cabbage head up well set with the ijjain root craxnped and twisted o. saya the anthority quoted.
