Canada is the paradise of raspberry culture. They talk there about Antwerps and other choice varieties as amongst the most profitable to cultivate. The thickets and wild places abound with delicious fruit, and" going a raspberrying " is the favorite summer pastime with Canadian lads and lasses. The writer of this has delicious recollections of "hand fulls" that have served for dinner in botanical excursions through Canadian Tama-rac swamps; and altogether he is sure that if there is one thing more than another for which a fruit lover might be pardoned, it would be the wish to be around in Canada during raspberry time.
