Considering the ease with which the great luxury of fresh mushrooms may be obtained, it is only a question of time when mushrooms will be as common as onions. They may be grown in an ordinary house cellar, shed or out-of-the-way place. Caves are well adapted for the purpose. Fermenting horse manure at a temperature of about 70 degrees, mixed with an equal weight of fresh sod loam, is made into beds the size required, eight inches deep. See to it that the bed is packed very solidly

Considering the ease with which the great luxury of fresh mushrooms may be obtained, it is only a question of time when mushrooms will be as common as onions. They may be grown in an ordinary house cellar, shed or out-of-the-way place. Caves are well adapted for the purpose. Fermenting horse manure at a temperature of about 70 degrees, mixed with an equal weight of fresh sod loam, is made into beds the size required, eight inches deep. See to it that the bed is packed very solidly and evenly. In this bed plant the broken pieces of spawn six inches apart, covering the wnole with two inches of light soil, and protect from cold or rain. One brick will plant eight to ten square feet of bed. The mushrooms will appear in about six weeks. Water sparingly and with lukewarm water. English Spawn.—In bricks. Per pound 12c Mustard MUSHROOM White London. Best for salads. Per pound 20c ONION. Our stock is fully equal to any and sup- erior In quality to most that is offered A strong, deep, rich and loamy soil is most suitable for this crop. The ground should be heavily dressed with well-rotted manure, and plowed a moderate depth, taking a narrow furrow in order to more thoroughly mix the manure with the soil; if possible the plowing should be done in the fall. As early in the spring as the ground is in working order, harrow it thoroughly and make as fine and level as possible; sow thinly in drills one- fourth inch deep and twelve inches apart. Keep the surface of the ground open and free from weeds, but do not ridge up to the growing bulbs. One ounce will sow one hundred feet of drill. 4 to 5 pounds per acre.
