To- matoes must be grown under glass If they aro to bo ripened, and frost comes too soon for corn. But'people will not take thc trouble to grow vegetables for market. Why should they, when by a few weeks- work. a year, a fortune is made in grain? That is, if frosts, rains, hall, drought, a shortage of cars, will permit. Why bother about gardening, even for more than moderate returns' when it means a summer's work? Oh no! Lot's stake everything on thc grain. Thai's a glorious gamble: rood year will tide over several lean ones, and the grain almost grows tsclf. Such is the maxim of most Western "farmers." Chinamen Do It All.
