WINTER PROTECTION OF SMALL FRUITS. 
  After twenty odd years' experience 
in handing out information, reliable 
and otherwise on horticultural topics 
we have learned   that the siniple 
things need telling often, that we are 
apt to take too mnuch for granted. 
We propose, therefore, to discourse 
occasionally on the A. B. C.'s of outr 
art. For instance, everybody who has 
a strawberry bed should know that 
it must be covered d(hring winter, not 
to prevent freezing of the ground, 
that is inlpractieal, but to prevent 
alternate freezing anlti thawing.  A 
light mulch of leaves, clean straw or 
marshl hay is sufficient. 
  Rlasp)be ,rries and Illackberrnies otught 
also to be ptrotetedtt  to insture a crop 
next yeaiir. )'oll noty get it erop) next 
year without ctoverillg or yoII may 
not. T'Ule tearth lrotietion is an ill- 
suranee. See artieli lby Mlr. IKohllr 
tin "Prottection." 
  Tender roses sltottll alsit lbe pro- 
tected. Cover the groiund witll ina- 
Mire and   tie burlap around tops.

lplant.s, such as Iris, Phlox, etc., with 
nianure.  Do)n't forget the straw- 
berry bed.

Beauty Spots in Spring. 
Now is the time to purchase and plant groups 
of the different bulbs, such as Tulips, Hya- 
cinths, Narcissus. Squills, Crocus, etc. The 
adornment of our homes can he accom- 
plished at little cost and should be looked 
upon as a necessity rather than a luxury. 
To help transform our earth to Eden just 
start a little flower planting this fall and you 
can rest assured that others will emulate the 
following year. Its a low priced hobby, but 
an interesting one to the individual and also 
the community.
