The very climax of ugliness was Den

Ben was not at all offended at the im
pertinence of my question; and forthwith
began to solve the question, thus :
" Well, now, gals what's sensible ain't

You know Katy was allers considerable
the puniest gal in these parts, and all the
young fellers in the neighborhood used
to try to catch her. Well, I used to jro
over to old Sammy's too, just to kinder

at Kate. But, Lord sakes ! I had no i

with apparent regret that he had not ex

"Well, soon, one Sunday morning I

face with daddy's old razor, and put on

Ben paused again to brush the fog
from his eyes, and then confined :

such nonsense. After a while we came
near a slough, whar we had to cross on a

good-for-nothing into the water."
"Why didn't you?"' I asked, sympa

"Stop, never mind," said Ben, giving
me a nudge. "Providence done that all

A young man commenced visiting a

Prepare for Planting Fruit Trees.
From causes we shall not now attempt
to explain, apples, peaches and pears are
not grown with that success which was
common in earlier times in this country.
This fact renders it necessary that a more
perfect preparation cf the soil before
planting be secured, and more thorough
cultivation be given the trees afterwards
It is now useless to think of receiving
profitable returns in fruits of these kinds
unless the trees are planted upon suitable
H VYO)ovv prepared. Preparing the
' 1 ' " - 1 1 3
soil for an orchard is not the work of a
day; if it is worth doing at all it is worth
doing well. This is true of all branches
of farming, but nnre especially true of
orcharding at the present day. There is
a wonderfully increasing demand for good
fruit; this arises from two causes: first,
from the increasing population and the fa
cilities for sending fruit to every city and
