successfully but it is   always   better
to limit such experiments to only a
few.        The Black    currant,    is     not
grown to   so great   extent us is the
red,   but as the excellent     qualities
of the Black currant,   for jellies, becomes more appreciated  the demand
will increase.     It is needless to suy
that a profitable growth can not  be
obtained by treating the propagation
of these plants in a   nap-hazard, ill
informed      way  than      anything  else
which requires skill and  Intelligence.
So a few practical hints on the best
method will be   given,     Tlie Experimental Farm recommends the folloW-
ing method.     The     usual method is
by cuttings.    These  root readily and
good plants are     obtained  after one
seasons growth.    The best     time to
muke the cuttings is in the Autumn
as currants begin to grow very ear
ly in the spring     and onec the bads
have  swollen   thoy   cannot   be   rooted
successfully.       Wood of the   currant
season's growth is    used.    This may
be cut early in the Autumn as soon
as the wood    has     ripened.       They
should     be cut in    as long pieces as
possible to save    time  iu     the field
and put   in a cool     moist   cellar or
buried  in sand.    If the cuttings can
be made at once it is host to do so.
These are made   by cutting the worn!
into pieces each    about eight or ten
inches long.   The base of the cutting
should he   made     with a square cut
just below   the    last    hud.       There
should     be at least,   half aa inch of
wood left above the top  bud  of each
cutting as there   should he a strong
growth from the    upper bud.   ami it
the wood is eut too close it is liable
to be    weakened.       A sloping cut is
best for   the     upper cut as it    will
shed rain better,   hut this in not important.    When     mude the   cuttings
should be planted at   oace, whieh is
usually the best    plan or   heeled in
R heeled in they   sbu-uid    be tied in
bundles und buried   upside    down in
warm  well-drained  soil,    with  about
three inches   of soil over them.   The
object of burying them   upside down
is that by this method the bases of
the cuttings    will be nearer the surface where tlie   soil is   warmer   aad
there is     more air,   and     they   will
callus quicker than if they were further     down.    The   cuttings     should
callus well in a few weeks,   and they
may be   planted    outside   if thought
advisable.       Cuttings     may be kept
In good condition     over     winter hy
heeling ia    or burying in   sand in a
cool cellar,   or after calluslng under
a few inches of soil to prevent their
drying out.       Good  results    are obtained     with   the least     trouble by
placing the cuttings in nursery rows
as soon as they are made.     The soil
should he well    prepared and should
be selected where water will not lie.
Furrows are opened three feet apart
and   deep   enough so     that the tup
bud,   or at     most two buds will be
above the ground.     The cuttings nro
placed about six Inches apart on the
smooth side of the   furrows and soil
thrown     in and tramped well about
them.     Where only a   small number
are to Im planted a   trench    may be
opened with a spade.       It is Important to   have most     of the cuttings
below ground,   as more roots will he
made and the plants will be strong
er.      There  would   also  be  danger  of
the cuttings drying up     before root
Ing if too niiirli    of the   wood  is ex
posed.      If  the season    is    favorable
the cuttings should callus    well uml
even throw out a     few roots beforo
winter.      Where    there  Ih  little snow
in winter     It is n good    practice to
cover the tops   of the   cuttings wilh
about  two inches id soil,   which will
be a good protection for them.   Tin.;
soil should be     raked ofi iu Spring;
ln (he Spring cultivation should  lie
gin early and kept, up regularly dur
ing the   summer to     conserve mois

One More Graft.
After the various grafting
enormities disclosed in connection with the department of
marine and fisheries tho opposition made their attacks so telling
that Mr. Brodour promised reform. To inaugurate this reform he employed alleged export
bookkeepers from New York, at
a cost of 950,000, to start n new
system of accounting, while he
continued to buy goods on the
same old terms, frmu the. same
nld grafters, certified by the
same officials lit all liimls of
prices
The trouble was not a professional one of bookkeeping, but a
moral one of boodling, Mr.
Brodeur's remedy lias simply
added one to the member of
'rafting operations. There
hould be accountants in the ser
■ice who could rearrange the
system. If outside help wus
needed there is plenty in this
country. But a deal was made
whereby a United States concern
supplied alleged experts, and
ran up this 150,000 in billsall for
starting a new set of books in
a single nne of the sixteen
departments of tlie public service. Here are some of tho payments.

II. Klpwell at 415 per day  2.176.1'
So far as is known all these
but one came front the United
States, and several of them are
young men said to be receiveing
?*500 to ljl 000 a year salary from
their firm. The government paid
their travelling expenses from
New York nnd paid their board in
Ottawa. The allowance for board
was £0 per day eaclt for four men;
$■1 per day each for live men,
and $8 per day for nine others.
This is a pretty high transient
rate for clerks, considering that
one of the 85 men was in Ottawa
175 and that others were 140.257

I met these experts at Ottawa, and   n^mMMm** *W,* **-'?■ * * * *9***7 ************* ftft ftft fttjf,
boarded at the same house with! T V
suiue nf them, positively assured
the minister that while the
country was paying$J amis;, per
duy for their board, the boarders j
themselves were paving less than
*l per day. Mr. Brodeur
solemnly stated that the experts
furnished vouchors for all payments, but wns obliged to correct
liis statement wlien shown lhat
certain accounts produced had
no voucher with llieiu. It looks
as if this whole book-keeping
scheme, professedly undertaking
to protect the government from
boodlers. was a grand boodllng
operation. Mr. Brodeur found
that with this matter and his
travelling bills unexplained he
could not get his estimates voted
and though he fought two nights
and tliree days he got no farther
ahead and finds himself forbliged
to clear up the matter before he
gets llis vole.
The immediate cause of the
long silting lusi week may
be briefly explained Mr,
Brodeur's estimates had been
partially voted weeks before.
The opposition asked Iiiui before
going any farther to produce
certain information, which the
houso luul ordered uud the
minister agreed to bring, before
his estimates was again taken up
He falling to have Ihe papers
ready at the time promised,
though he claimed that this failure was through no personal fault of his own, but
wns due to Ihe absence of his
deputy. Under those circumstances opposition members
asked that the marine estimates
be postponed and those of
some other depart ment taken up.
As all the ministers have nionoy
to vote that course might easily
have been followed. Hut Mr.
Brodeur insisted that his own
votes should be passed. Conservative members stood by Iheir
declaration, to which the minister had himself assented, that
the information should be given
lirst and the vote afterwards,and
that if through any misfortune
Mr. Brodeur had failed lo get
his papers ready, some other
minister who had not failed
should lake up his estimates.
Mr. Brodour refused to allow
other work to be done. He was
thus himself the obstructor, and
is responsible for the loss of
time.
It was found that not only wns
the money to be imported bookkeepers for board and expenses
paid without vouchers, but lhat
no officer certified to the
correctness of most of the $511,000
paid for the accounting.
A large part was paid on the
mere certificate of the men to
whom the money went. It would
have suited the minister to have
this money voted before these
and other facts were known as it
suits other ministers to shut out
all doubtful matters of public expenditure. But there must be a
liinil to these suppressions.
