and steped to the side of the road
to let the car pass, when Louie
Kleiner was coming up behind
them and the bright lights from
the approaching car blinded him

Handling of Grape Vine
Cuttings Important Job
The handling of grape vine cutting*
Is an Important job before they are
ready to be set out. states A. E.
Sehllletter, extension horticulturist,
Clemson college, who gives below
In pruning grape vines, many cut-
tings can be made from the wood that
Is cut away.
Cuttings from the new wood are
best. They should be made with two
or three buds, on wood about eight
Inches long, the bottom trimmed close
to the bud beneath It.
The cuttings should be tied in small
bundles, about three or four Inches in
diameter and placed in dana* sand
In the cellar. They should be com-
pletely covered with sand.
In the spring the cuttings should
be set in earth that has been made
deep, mellow, and fine, in rows three
feet apart, spaced six inelies apart in
the row. so that only the top bud of
the nittlng will ai l r above th*- sur-
face. The first year the cuttings
should be carefully cultivated, then
they will he ready for p!nn*'ng.

It Is not uncommon to hear com-
plaints about the unsatisfactory re-
sults of setting out trees that have
been purchased through agents, and
this we have found to be the case, es-
pecially with trees that have been
shipped from a distance. Our ex-
perience has been that it is best to
patronize the home nurseryman, if he
is reliable and sells stoclt at a reason-
able price. It is true that many peo-
ple appreciate something that comes
from a distance more than that which
Is purchased at home, hut when it
comes to buying trees one should allow
his better judgment to overrule. If the
trees purchased near home do not
turn out to be as represented, the
buyer can go direct to the nursery-
man, state the grievance, and general-
ly get satisfaction, provided your home
man is an honorable dealer, who ad-
vertises what he has and sells what
We have always made a practice of
getting our supply of trees as near
home ns possible; they are then apt
to lie better adapted to the soil an<1
the climate, and not so likely to be
damaged by long railroad journeys and
much handling in transfer. It is gen-
erally possible to ‘make a trip to the
home nursery in a car and return in a
day. A person may he able to gain
considerable information about trees,
end besides, make a personal lection
of stock, rejecting the Inferior or un
desirable tn s. The nurseryman will
gladly show «my prospective customer
about, .and give all the information
possible, as it advertises his business.
The more persons he can interest in
horticulture, the better will be his
sales. At least gh
man a chance. 1!
