It is our notion that mince pie  it bad enough.for the>digestive apparatus without putting booze on it  *'. CULTIVATING THE  ROSE  Among all the flowering shrubs  that, grace the' garden or add to the  beauty of hall or conservat^ry  none can compare to the. rose. ��������� Of  diverse color,' and character of foliage of endless design and color of  blooms, it lends itself' to a wider  range of decoration than any other  singliel group of plants, being e-  qually desirable as pot plants, for  garden culture, and for cut flowers  When to these qualifications are  added ease and culture and quick  and ample .responses in flowers, it  is explained why, the rose has been  aptly termed "The Queen of Flowers." In our collection of ornamen-;  tal and flowering shrubs it occupies  first place, hence we have be'en  careTuti always'.to have on hand a  large stock of onlyjrhe' most vigorous plants and only those ' sortj  which produce freely of blooms po-  3essihg good substance and striking'  individual 'chajracteristcs. All our j  roses are field grown, thus injuring'  plans of strong constitution and  robust  growth,   gome      objections  have been expressed to'budded ro.s-  es,  owing  to   the  fact  that      the  ���������plants  arc  np't  to sucker!   This 'in  readily   overcome 'by   setting   the  junction of l.ha bud with the fjloclc  underground. If. planters will ob-  H'ei'YC to do this, much of this difficulty will bo removed These shoots  'or suckers arc easily distinguished  by their rampant growth and thorny and coarse like appearance.They  should be removed 'as fast as they  appear. Budded rose3 gi ow far more  vigorously than those on their' own  .roots and arc longer lived, so that  the slight additional expense incurred to begin'with is more than corn-  parusallfcd for fii having superior  t plants,      , , ,-',,.   ,  |' The aim has been in .giving descriptions of the different varietos  to be conservative in statement and  cliear in expression, preferring   at'  the name time to be modest in opin  ion rather than to'oVer praise. In  habit of growth, U'ooming qualities  vigorous   root'  development      our  plants arc the delight of rose lovers  and   homo  gardens.   The inexperienced aro advised to study cultural direction's", which are based on  California   conditions,   and     hence  will be quite sure to afford satisfactory results if carfully followed  The best season of the year for  planting roses is from December   1  to  March tho, 15, with the recommendation in favor of early- planting.   In   planting the   same     care  should be observed as with any oth  er tree or; plant, the ground should  be  spaded thoroughly, and if any  well-rotted manure is available, it  should be worked, into the soil. Dig  the- nolle large  enough to  receive  the- roots.   Prune the  top, cutting  back'thei branches at least one-half  and all bruised roots removed. Af-  ���������i  ter planting settle the soil around  the plant by watering, freely.  No definite rule can be laid down  for pruning roses exce'p't!that Teas  and their  allied families do not require as t-cvoro pruning as the hybrid perpotuals and others of equal  .ly as vigorous growth. There is one  fast  rule, however,  on the  Pacific  Coast, and that is never to allow  roses to  go  unprune'd  . 'The best  time is from December 15 to aMrch  1.      The first winter-.after planting  thin to three, main- shoots   and .cut  -these back  at  least .,two-thirds  In  after  years  with   the  frame  work  branches, established, -  the laterals  should be  thinned  out to prevent  o'vercrowding and those allowed to  remain  should be  cut to  spurs  of  about four buds each. If this method  is followed reguLarly each season, a  properly pruned plant wild have the  shape,  of   a .deer's   aritlers.   Witflu  climbers   the   framework  branches  should be trained against the wall  in the shape of a fan leaving^not  more than three or four, and tnese  should be  cut  back quite severely  the   first' two   seasons  to  promote  vigor and sturdiness of growth.   In  after, years shorten in the laterals  and thin out sufficiently to prevent  overcrowding, otherwise the plant  wiU   be a mass  of dead wood and  twisted branches, and its vigor will  become impaired.   When the roses  cease blooming in the early summer  the  faded buds should'be cut and  the pjlants should be given alight  pruning, or more correctly a pinching back which will have the effect  of  making  them  respond with    a  bounteaous  bloom in  the summer  and fall. ��������� "' '-  Standard roses,' commonly known  as tree roses are budded on a vigorous Manetti rose stock three and a  half feet from the ground.They are  very effective and if the head is  shortened in and thinned out the  pliant becomes very symm('tri.ca!  and responds with a wealth ol  bloom which is surprising. The first  two seasons, wrap the stem with  paper or-burlap to prevent sunburn  and cue away all suckers appearing beneath the crown.  Set the bush roses two to iwoj������nd  a half feet apart; standards f'jur ' o  six feet apart; for hedge purposes  two feet apart except' the I'o'.'yan-  tha types, which are inbred warf -.*-  their   habits  and   permit  Of   being  more closely planted.���������Better Fruit  csgagajsaaaaBaragmim^ "  ' Farm' Lands ������������������  ��������� and  '  .

I asked  you to bring stock, chickens, etc. I advertised for  you but my requests were always met with the reply  ;     BUYTHEM YOURSELF  Now take this to heart and digest it well, because I know the farmers will not like to hear it, but  never the less its true. 1  A Record of My Purchases and Resales  at the Yards    ;  And don't forget it was not more than 24 hours  after I made the purchase either: Bought 1 3 steers  for $300, sold them for $418, profit $118; bought  5 pigs for $12'each, sold them for 98, profit $3.8,  bought 2 sows and a boar for $9.0, sold,them for  120, profit 30; bought line of 22 head of cattle for  25 each, sold them at^ prices averaging 38, profit  286; bought 1 team of horses for ,4.50, sold them  for 735, profit 285, and sundry other ^things, Now  look at my commission it would haverbeen.$ 1 1.0.35  and look at my profit $733.
