A week or ten days longer on the plants will make firat-elass cuttings of them. Take no cuttings from the plants when the soil is very dry and the plants look wilted. The same holds good when the sun is shining strongly during mid- day. Take your cuttings in the morn- ing of clear days, or on cloudy days. "With proper foresight this can be man- aged very well. Cuttings taken from plants which have been highly fed will not root as satisfactorily as those taken from plants which have been growing on a moderate diet. Inserting: the Cuttjns;s. After the cuttings are taken from the plants they should be gotten into the sand as speedily as possible. While they are being prepared they should be kept cool and moist at all times. In pre- paring the cuttings, make a clean cut at the bottom and remove entirely from the stem all those short leaves which would sink below the surface of the sand. Cut back only the longest lower blades and leave all the upper blades intact. The sand in your propagating, bench should be about three inches deep after it is packed firmly. Set the cuttings into the sand about an inch deep and press the sand along each row after it is filled. Set the cuttings about three to every two inches and set the rows about an inch and a half to two inches apart. These distances may be modified accord- ing to the size of the cuttings, but they are a good average. Water in well after you have a number of rows set, and never allow the sand to become dry thereafter. Further instructions will follow in my next. A. F. J. Baus. A MODEL CARNATION PLANT. Those who have an interest in carna- tion growing find it well worth their while, when visiting Chicago, to make the trip to a point two miles north of Wheaton, 111., to see the model carnation growing establishment of E. T. Wanzer. Here are six houses, ridge and furrow plan, each 23×200, erected two years ago by William Reitmeier, of material sup- plied by the A. Dietsch Co. The heating IS hot water supplied by a Kroeschell holier, the pipes all being on the floor of the greenhouses. Mr. Wanzer spent a number of years on the Chicago Board of Trade and went into carnation growing because of his in- terest in the work. He selected an ideal spot on a farm where the soil is the deep, "CJi prairie loam and put up a thor- oughly well built establishment, but with- out any frills. He then turned the work of carnation growing over to R. Scheffler and became that efficient grower’s first assistant. The quality of the stock turned out from the beginning was an evidence that the needs of the carnation are thor- oughly understood and provided for. The range houses 35,000 plants. Law- son’being grown in largest quantity, but with Enchantress a close second. Lawson occupies two houses and Enchantress one and one-half houses. Victory occupies a whole house and the remaining house and one-half provides space for Winsor, Aristocrat, White Lawson and Boston Market. Each of the varieties is in ex- cellent shape and there is no sign about the place of any of the diseases the car- nation is heir to. But the visitor invaria- bly is first impressed with the splendid color in Lawson. It is much brighter than usually seen and Mr. Scheffler says it is due to the soil, which is a rather light, black, friable loam, quite different from that in use in many places around Chicago where good carnations are grown. Winsor is well liked, but fault is found with the keeping qualities of Aristocrat, which Mr. Scheffler says has such hard wood that it does not draw up water with the freedom of the more fleshy-stemmed varieties. He thinks Winsor can be grown with profit by anyone who can make money on Lawson, but Victory is his especial favorite. The first season this was grown it was full of rust and obtained a poor start, but in the end gave a fair account of itself. This year it has done splendidly, there being no special difference in the plants which were benched early and those which were housed late in August. Mt. Scheffler says it will establish itself and give a cut of good quality quicker than any other vari- ety of which he knows. Another point is that it gives a steady cut, the shoots being in all stages of growth—but this is a characteristic of all the varieties in the Wanzer place. They cut 1,500 Vic- tory flowers December 22 and realized over 10 cents each for them. It pays them better than any other sort on the place and next year they will plant 10,- 000 of it. Mr. Wanzer says he has vis- ited practically all the carnation growers around Chicago this season and has seen no place where either Craig or Beacon was good enough to compete with Vic- tory. While Enchantress is doing well with Mr. Wanzer, as with practically every grower, he is of the opinion that the vari- ety is overdone and he will grow less of it next year. Part of the space will be given to White Enchantress, o’f which he already has some fine stock from John Reitmeier, brother of the man who built the greenhouses. Visitors are interested in Mr. Schef- fler’s method of propagating. He uses about half sand and half soil and roots his cuttings with little moisture. Over the cutting bed he erects a frame of lath and wire on which he spreads newspapers for shade and says the cuttings get much better attention through the daily re- moval of the shade than where it is ac- complished by simply winding up a long sheet; every spot in the bench comes di- rectly under the propagator’s eye. That his method is an excellent one is shown by the fact that no stronger lot of cut- tings could be found anywhere than those now about ready for potting and to make room for which a fine bench of Enchant- ress has had to be thrown out. This year Mr. Wanzer is propagating more heavily than last year, it being his intention to make a specialty of rooted cuttings as soon as he can establish a reputation for his stock. The store room for blooms is worth a moment’s consideration. It has been fit- ted up with galvanized iron tanks for hardening the flowers. The tanks are deep enough to let the stems in almost up to the flower and are provided with racks dividing each tank into small squares for each handful of blooms. The tanks are emptied by merely pulling a plug as in a bathtub and are filled by opening a fau- cet, so that fresh water can always be had. Here the flowers stay twelve hours, before packing for shipment to the A. L. Randall Co., Chicago, which has sold every flower the place has turned out, ex- cept a few which are retailed from the greenhouses. Mr. Scheffler makes good use of every bit of space in the greenhouses. He has just finished cutting a crop of fine stevia grown in the walks and he has a box of sweet peas at each end of each bench. Chrysanthemums are grown as a catch crop in the propagating house and in the field there is a plantation of peonies. Gladioli will be added this season and it is expected they will do better than the 100,000 asters picked did last year, al- though asters still will be grown. Gera- niums also are propagated for wholesj^l- ing as well as for retail trade. CLYDE CARNATION HOUSES. The accompanying illustration is from a photograph of the carnation growing establishment of the Clyde Floral Co., at Clyde, Ohio, a few miles east of Belle- vue. The range was built by Arlin & Arlin, but the business is now conducted under the former name. There are four houses 21×100, erected of material fur- nished by the Foley Mfg. Co., Chicago. The up-to-date varieties of carnations are grown and the season thus far has been an excellent one.
