A oonaider-&Ue inter'� i The, potato yields werfe sotnewhdt lighter than In normal years because of the light precipitation. The j^er; lean wonder, a variety that har^^eea grown for a number of j'earS, yielded 294 bushels per acre. The Country^ Gentleman yielded 284 bushels and the Irish Cobbler 278 bushels. The Green Mountain yielded 276 bushels per acre. This variety, although'It is a fairly low yielder, is recommendable for the fact that as high as 99 per cent of the potatoes are marlcetable, a8 against 92 per cent, of the Countrj' Gentleman. The Irish Gobbler had 9rt per cent, niarlcetable and the American Wonder 98 per cent.

They are very hardy and wheto jilhilti^d in rows four feet apart require little attention after the first year. The first year about five runners are set around each plant. The ripening season in this country is somewhat later than In the Bast. This year most ot the fruit was picked during the last weelc In July, while In the Bast strawberries ripen In June. The yields of sunflowers ranged between eleven and fifteen tons. An experiment was conducted to determine whether seeding the rows clouer together or further apart would give the highest yields. They were seeded at various distances apart, varying from 24 inches to 42 inches. Under the conditions that existed this year rows aeeded 80 inches apart resulted in the highest yields. All of,the sunflowers grown were ensiled and as yet none of the sunflower ensilage hiys been fed. Malbaih .burled In the Stem family lot tn Cen-tralla,: 111., /iMfs.y.

It is desired to get away from the idea tliat the party is a "farmer's" party exclusively. Epeaking in East Elgin week before last, Hon. T. A. Crerar declared that there is nothing in the policy of the party wiiicli applies alone to the farming community, but that it Is a doctrine to which all may subscribe .wlio desire tlie lowering of the tariff and other planks of thfflplatform. At the last session of Parliament the name National Progressive party was applied to the group by its leaders, but it was never officially adopted. It is stated that the party caucus in the coming session will put an official stamp on this name and that arrangements will be attempted as stated to contest both city and, country seats as a real third party. In the�cit-ites it would be hoped to co-flperate with Labor under the heading of Progressive-Labor.
