garden, but I do not want to go on record as saying that we could
grow Plum Farmer raspberries at the rate of 12,000 quarts,
which figured up about $2,400 to the acre the way the Sparta
people sell their berries, but I first got it down to 8,000, then

STRAWBERRIES NEW AND OLD.
GEO. J. KELLOGG, Lake Mills, Wis.
New:
1st Norwood after 2 years' trial I place at the head of the list
for every good point as a promising new variety.
Heritage, every way worthy-very early and holds very late,
wonderfully productive and fine quality.
Ozark, best large early that will be satisfactorily productive.
Highland, early, productive, ripens its crop at about 3
pickings.
Corsican, of the Jessie type and superior to that variety in
many ways.
Buster, for large size and productive.
Everbeariirg Kinds:
Pan American (H) poor plant maker but bears enormously
till snow flies.
Autumn (P) wonderfully productive and bears till it freezes
up. Repeater, worthy of trial.
Strawberries Old:
Dunlap and Warfield as best pair.
Haverland and Splendid for 2nd best pair.
Bubach and Klondike for best big berries.
Glen Mary and Wm. Belt for largest b-g berries for fancy
market.
Parsons Beauty and Sample bring top prices.
Brandywine, Gandy and Stevens latp.
Champion for best late, large and good shippers.
Best 3 for all purposes, Dunlap, Warfield and Brandywine.
