Vote by Congregation
At the meeting of the General Assembly wheu the returns to thc remit
on Church Union where presented, the
Clerks of Assembly were directed to
prepare an additional return showing
thc number of congregations in which
by a majority of those voting, the
union proposals were approved or
disapproved respectively. This return
has been prepared and will be includ
ed in thc Assembly blue book. It is
of considerable interest, iuuBinuch as
it was in this form that thc vote was
taken in the union of 1875, and he
tween tbc Republican leaders, there
is good reason can lie made. The return presented to tbe General Asscm
lily of the Canada Presbyterian
church in 18-74 showed 168 congregations in favor of union and 87 op -
posed. After further conference and
readjustment the basis was resubmit
ted and at the Assembly of 1875 the
vote was reported as 2iil congrega -
gations in favor and 7 opposed. In
connection with the present returns it
is interesting to note that in only
one I'reshytery—I'ictou—did a major
lty of llie congregations vote against
union. The table which wc print is
based upon the vote of elders and
members in euch congregation. Two
Presbyteries are not im-luded— Winnipeg and Wdmonton—as the necess -
ary returns were not forthcoming:

Munching Early celery is usually
blanched by means of boards, us there
is less danger of disease during the
warm weather, l.ni.- celery mny be
blanched by the use of boards, or by
banking up with earth. There is much
less labor required when boards are
used I'm' blanching, bul if the celery
is lo I.e lell in Uie ground ill the fall
there is more danger from frost than
when   il   is well   bunked   with  earth.
Digging and Preparing for Market
111   Uu-  lield   llic  celery   should   be loos
rued only us required for removal to
lhe storehouse or washing house, ,-im
a short exposure to Uu- sun after the
roots  have  l n  disturbed  is     vory
Injurious nnd detracts from iis keep
ing qualities. When ready for market lhe celery is washed free of adhering ml. lie- out aide leaves are rernov
e.l and Ui,- roots trimmed, and il is
packed In boxes or crates. A lining
of papei is usually placed ill the box
before  packing  the  celery,
Storage When only a smnll quantity of celery ,s kept for winter it
may In- ll 11 hnnked in Uie Held un.l
covered «ii li -traw, or put in a tren
cn and covered, Tins method is, bow
evei, too. laborious for application on
a Inrge commercial  scale.
Celery may be safely stored in eel
lars ui- storage houses provided the
temperature is kept low and plenty of
ventilation maintained, Make bins '.i
or 1 feci wide 2 feet high and any
desired length and put iu aliout ti
inches of Btrong soil. Plant the celery, leaving tbe roois on, close together in rows about 3 inches apart
After the plants are set iu water
heavily without putting uny more
ihan necessary on tlle tups. Leave the
bin open until the plants are dry and
then cover,
