It is usually necessary, as it has been in Suffolk county, to m o d ­ ify these tests som e w h a t, so t h a t they will apply as closely as possible to local conditions.

The dam a g e did n o t exceed $1,- have th e ir allow a n c e reduced from 500. T h e cau s e o f th e fire is u n - tw e n ty-five to fifty p e r oent., Early peas require a rath e r rich sandy loam with good drainage I d or­ d e r th a t the first plantings may be m ade early In the spring. Fertilizers th a t are high In nitrogenous m a tter should not be applied to the land im­ m ediately before planting, as they will have a tendency to produce too great grow th of vines a t th e expense of pods. Land th a t has been manured the previous year will be found satis­ factory w ithout additional fertilizer. W h ile th e sandy loam Is to be pre­ ferred for early varieties, a good crop can be produced on alm o st any good Boll. T h e first plantings should be of such varieties as Alaska, or some of Its modifications, which m ake a small but quick grow th and may or may not be provided with supports. These should be planted about two weeks before the date of the last killing frost, or In fact may be planted as soon as the ground Is In condition. The tall-growing s o rts o f th e Telephone type are desirable for still later use, on account of their large production and excellent quality. P e a s should be drilled in rows, one to two pints being sufficient for a 100- foot row. The individual peas should be placed about 1 inch ap a rt In the rows. The distance between rows will depend upon the kind of cultivation to be employed, and upon the varieties used. The dw a rf varieties need not be any farth e r ap a rt than necessary to insure cultivation, while th e tall-grow­ ing sorts should not be planted closer than 3 to 3% feet apart. A good scheme Is to plant two p a r­ allel row s of peas about 6 o r 8 Inches apart, then leave a space of 18 Inches o r two feet and plant tw o more rows o f seed close together. Few e r strings o r less brush will be required to sup­ port them than when planted in single rows at th e g reater distance. If peas are to be grown for Immedi­ a te use only, a q u a r t will be enough to plant a t one time. However, If It Is desired to grow peas for canning, large plantings should be made. If space Is available, it is an excellent plan to m ake considerable planting a t one time of some one variety, bo th a t the peas fo r canning will be available in con­ siderable quantities. This enables the housew ife to get the canning out of th e w ay in a com p a ratively s h o rt time. Successive plantings of the various va­ rieties of peas should be made at in­ tervals of about two weeks, until the w e a ther begins to grow warm, when th e plantings should be discontinued. I t Is possible In some sections to grow a fall crop of peas. W hen .this Is done, early varieties should be used. •U. S. D e p a rtm e n t of Agriculture.
