It is remarkable how the cultivation of this has increased within a short time. Twenty years ago it would have been difficult to find a dollar's worth in New York markets - now thousands of dollars worth are sold annually. As everybody raises it, and many prefer it for tarts to gooseberries themselves, I will not take the trouble to say anything about its general cultivation.

There is one hint about Rhubarb, however, that I will give, as I think it very useful. This is that everybody, fond of early spring tarts, (and who is not,) should have a small plantation near the stable yard. If it is only a dozen hills, it will be something well worth while - enough to make you feel that your garden is better than your neighbor's. These hills should be about three feet apart - so as to admit of covering each hill with an old barrel, at the beginning of winter. By having them near the barn-yard, the speces between the barrels can he filled without any trouble, (by throwing it in from time to time,) with litter and fresh manure from the horse stable. The tops of the barrels should be only very slightly covered. When the spring opens (unless the winter has been very severe) you will find the barrels quite filled with nice tender stalks and leaves - the stalks much more tender than when grown out of doors. In this way you get a good cutting of Rhubarb full one month before you get it out of doors, especially if your Rhubarb patch is on a sloping south bit of ground. The manure between the barrels keeps the frost out of the ground, while the beat forces the plants to grow inside.

When you have cut the stalks twice, the leaves should be allowed to grow, and the barrels and manure cleared away, (a good dressing of the latter being dug in,) so as to let the plants get strength for another season. A Working Man.
