A letter in a daily paper says:

"The experiment of bagging grapes previous to their blooming, is being tried quite extensively this year on C. H. Smith's vineyard at Vineland, New Jersey, and there is every indication that the experiment will prove a success, both as a preventive of rose bug ravages and rot. The clusters on the Smith farm, which were bagged a week previous to the time of blooming, are filling out finely, and it is thought this method will be quite generally adopted next year".
