Id the articlc last week in ref-
erence to the building of a hot-
bed the dimensions of same were
given as 16x20, when it should
have been 6x16, and those who
expect to plant in these beds
should take notice, as there is a
large difference in the propor-
tion of these dimensions. Mis-
takes in figures are often the
most difficult to avoid in a print-
President Jones' article for
this week treats of the cold
frame, and contains full informa-
tion on that point, and is as fol-
Care of tlw Miltal
My last article was on how to
make a hotbed for tomatoes, and
will say that after your seed has
been sown your bed will require
close attention. A person that
cannot stay close at home should
not attempt to grow tomatoes.
You must keep the bed moist
enough, yet too much moisture
will cause the plants todampoff.
It is better to water in the morn-
ing than in the evening. Se-
lect a warm day with sunshine,
so the moisture will not chill the
ground. It is better to have
your bed too dry than too wet;
avoid it at all in cold weather;
you can carry your plants
through much colder weather
when dry. Experienced grow-
ers say that tomatoes will stand
more dry weather than most
any plant. You should endeavor
to keep vour cloth on the hotbed
rolled up as much as possible
in the day time. Should you
have a long continued cold spell
or blizzard, set a lighted lamp in
your hotbed with chimnej taken
off; even two lamps will be bet-
ter and your plants will be safe
if you have zero weather; don't
open the bed for several days
after using lamps, give air and
MsUsf • C«M frame.
Kach cold frame should be
eight wide by forty feet long, to
plant one acre of tomatoes; se-
lect a piece of ground in the cen-
ter of place you wish to set out;
lay off 10x40 feet and remove all
trash; use about two loads of
cowpen manure; plow deep, com-
mencing in the center. Drive
down posts six feet apart on
side of bed. allowing twelve
inches to remain above ground;
nail 1x12 plank around this mak-
ing beds eight feet wide;
through the center of bed drive
down 2x4 posts every ten feet
allowing three and a half feet re-
main above the ground; to top of
this nail 1x4 laths for ridge pole;
tack rafters 1x3 or something
light, gable ends and bank,
throw dirt up around base
The covering should be yard-
wide sheeting, arranged so that
you can lower it as in hotbed
when weather is good.
Before you are ready to trans-
plant make you a marker or
guage; take a 1x4 eight feet
long, bore one-fourth inch holes
in center four inches apart,
commencing two inches from
end; have wooden pins two and
a half inches long; make your
ground in cold frame smooth;
the imprint of these pins will be
just four inches apart, and the
planto abould be set in these
very careful to select a
to do ydvr tri
planting, which ought t<> be
done about February 12.

attention to be given plants in

MtMof i MoiM,
Mr. Jannett, having had consid-
erable experience as a gardener,
and especially in making and us-
ing hotbeds, has made a small
bed in his yard, .sxlü feet, and
prepared it according t<> the in-
structions of Mr. Jones, and
savs he will be glad to show any
one who desires to see ju-1 how
it is done, and to give them any
help he can in the way <>f in-
formation. It would be well fur
those who have never had any
experience in this line to see
Mr. Jannett's work and get the
benefit of his experience.
