ON STORING ApPLEs AND PEARS, AND GROWIN G STRAWBERRIES.—If you wish to mature your fiuit for immediate use put it into heaps that it may sneat, and your object will be attained; hut should you desire to keep your fruit a 10llg time, [dace il in an under-ground room, one apflle or peClr rieep, upon shelves of flag or s:a:e, or any other material which will rapidly conduct away the heat generated in the fruit during its sweating, or which will check its fermentation so as to postpone its c'.ecny. Do you aim at growing a luxuriant crop of leaves on your strawherry-beds? then manure Ihem without mercy, as advised. But if fruit should be prefetred to leaves, yon may get an abundance of it by devoting a moderately rich and rather stiff piece of ground to such good bearing sorts of strawberries as Keen's seedling Grove-end scarlet, aud Elton seedling', pro- vided you plant" ithout manure, and, having planted, permit the runners to mat over the bed without let or hinrlrance. If after th. ee or four creps the plants should show signs of poverty, you may then scatter some manure upon them. Should early fruit he desired, Keen's seedling or Grove-end scarlet may be grown, with the plants eight or nine inches apart, on II steep sunny bank faced with rubble- stones or pieces of brick and it no natural bank can he bad convenient!), au artÎficiitl one would he readily made, the back part of which might be planted with the Elton seedling, which would pro- long the strawberry season till the beginning of August.
