SWEET POTATO PLANTS. We find there is quite a demand for sweet potato plants in our locality in the state of Washington and shall ap- preciate your courtesy if you will tell us how to get them started. W. F. C. Sweet potatoes are tender and can- not be set out any earlier than tomatoes. A hotbed for sweet potatoes can be made the same as for other purposes, but we prefer a deep one, a dug-out or pit, made by digging a hole about eight- een inches deep and a trifle larger than the size of the frame. This trench we fill with fresh horse manure which has been hauled up previously and turned and well shaken up once or twice. The manure is tramped into the pit until it is well filled and well packed. Then the fr£une is placed on top, and more ma- nure packed all around it to keep it warm around the sides and ends. If the manure is not good the hotbed will be a failure, but we are presuming that the inquirer knows something about hot- beds. If the manure is burning dry, it needs a light watering, or it will be ruined. After placing the frame on the ma- nure, spread about an inch or two of sand on top of the manure, put the sash on, and wait to see how it is going to act. In a few days the temperature will run high, and the potatoes should not be put in until the temperature of the manure falls back to about 90 de- grees. To get the temperature, put the thermometer well down into the manur
