In some locations in Illinois Tre-f.ive
seen some beautiful fencing, or hedging,
done with the Osier Willow.' When first
introduced into the United States 'a few
years ago from' Frante, it was for its cul
tivation as a lashet willow. : Yet, after
being tested in many places in New York,
Pennsylvania New Jersey, and other
Eastern States; it has been found to an
swer remarkably well for a. lire- fenee.
And upon ihu prairies of Illinois," 'if has
made a. growth of five cr six feet in a
single season. Its rapid growth, adapta
tion to a deep rich prairie soil, and per
fect hardiness, with the very little care
required to form a barrier to cattle or
hogs, must soon bring it into general use
by the farmers of Nebraska and the
prairie States, where the timber is scarce
and becoming more so every year.
The many different varieties of 'the
osier willow will grow in any well culti
vated, rich upland, and as readily , and
more vigorously on a wet bottom.- Its
cultivation is simple: Take cuttings ten
or twelve inches long, and set them in a
well ploughed, straight row, as soon as
the frost is out of the ground ; leaving
but about two inches of the top out of the
ground, and set six inches apart. Should
the season be a dry one, mulch with' par
tially decayed straw or litter of any kind.
The cuttings treated in this way will grow
about five feet the same season ; and the
next spring should be: cut off about six
inches above the earth. ' These:again the
next season will stool, and throw up thou
sand of shoots, making a larger growth
than those of the previous year; to be
again partially cut back, and the next
season woven together, which makes a
fence that a rabbit ' can scarcely pene
trate. The cuttings will each year well
pay the trouble of pruning; while the
only actual cost is for the first cuttings,
preparing ground and setting ouU ; This,
we will say, costs twenty -jive cents per rod
certainly not more arid you' have a
fence impenetrable, durable and beautiful
Those who come here and complain of
the scarcity of timber, should set them
selves at ence about securing the . Osier
for their future fencing. The cuttings
may be had for from 2 to 3 per thou
sand ; and a single thousand or even five
hundred would be all that would be nec
essary to start with; and in five years he
might have a quaTter section all, fenced
iii ten acre lots with a beautiful live wall,
turning all unruly members of society.
Its hardiness over the Osage Orange or
Jllaclura will gi.-e it a great advantage
here on our bleak prairies. I have new
growing in fence the Osifr, Osnge Or
ange, and Honey Locust, giving each one
its proper care, and will report progress
of each another season. - .

Mn. Editor: As the object, of the
Farmer is to afford tillers of the soil an
opportunity by, or medium through which
they may give each other the benefit of
experience in farming in the "West, I pro
pose briefly to give the result of an ac
cidental experiment in plowing:
Last year I put two of my boys at work
breaking up my com ground. One a good
stout boy able to do a man's workj to
him I gave a strong heavy team, and he put
the plow in deep, turning up the soil from
below. The other boy, being "small and
not 'able to do heavy work, I gave a
light plow and team that he might the
more easily manage them. The result,
of course, was that his"plowing was'shal
low, compared with that of the elder boy.
They were at work in the same field and
plowed land about. The difference in
the corn on the different lands, from the
time it came up until it ripened, was as
tonishing. That on the lands plowed deep
came up sooner, and fairly ranaway from
the shallow plowed lands. When I
gathered my corn the difference 'in yield
was still more astonishing. The deep
plowed lands yielded fully one-third more
corn than the others. ' - - '
My doctrine is, to raise good corn, in
breaking up, plow deep. ' ';
I may state that last year I had in corn
over one hundred acres, and I thidc it
averaged Go bushels to the acre.. .. ,

Can we Raise Frnlt In Nebraska?
Such is the question asked by many,
and it is one cf t vast importance to - the
settlers of cur Territory. r
':. Unless we can raise 'fruit, we wf.l be
deprived of many, very many, of: the. lux
uries of life. We, most of us, have;been,
used to fruit all our life until we came
here, 'and to be deprived of the same, for
even a few years, is very inconvenient,
and hard to be borne; but to live' here
with no prospect of fruit, I, for' one,
would never do. But, can we raise fruit ?
that is the question. . '
: I am fully persuaded we can. To be
sure, we have a cold climate, with sudden
freezing arid thawing in winter, which is
trying to the tre-s, but not more so than
in Iowa; Northern Illinois, and Wiscon
sin. cc, where experience ha3 proven
that fruit will do well. Here the subject
has not been fully . demonstrated, for
want of time that our Territory has been
settled. We might conclude that we. can
not raise wheat here, because in''oS it
was ruined with rust; or corn, because
three years ago it was nearly' ruined by
early frost, and the little raised this year
on account of the drouth. But we have
had iio such mishaps befalling cur orch
ards. There has been fruit trees grow
ing in this county for four or five years,
and are still doing well. I have heard
of none being killed by our winters.
"But,", says one, "we have not had
one of our. severe winters since they
were of any size.'" .
True, and we may never have again;
if we do,- we will not, I think, fare worse
than: others, as trees were killed, cr
greatly injured, four and five years ago,
all over .the West, and toa great . extent
all over the Union; and this calamity
will, if heeded, be of lasting benefit to
us as it is to them, being a guide-whereby
to steer hereafter, to enable us to keep
clear of such mishaps, by setting cut on
ly such kinds aa then proved to be hardy
and able to endure our most severe win
ters. If we sit down, and fold our arms,
and cry : "Oh, we never, can raise fruit
here like they can in the Jarsies' and
other places noted for their extensive or
chards and fine fruit I admit we will
have no fruit.
We must be up and doing. We must
think, read, and labor; must battle with
all difficulties; what nature has apparent
ly withheld from us, we must make up,
by assisting her,- not work against, but

Everybody will laugh at the following.
It is one of the good things: that Mr.
Chandler, of the Adams county (Wis.)
Independent, occasionally l.'.'gets off;"..
Our Shanghai editor is a marrit d man i

Let the land be well plowed, certainly
twice ; and a good quantity of well de
composed manure turned under the last
time, before setting out.ynur trees. And
if your land has not a natural drainage,
let it ba done at once ; for, the roots of an
apple tree will not be healthy in a soil
that is stiff and filled with an undue mois
ture. Th; size of ths tree to be selected
from the nursery rev, is the next mate
rial point. An apple tree two years from

a plum one year a cherry the same,
I would recommend to the planter in ev
ery instance ; and run no risk by getting
larger trees. When of this age, there is
but about one chance in a hundred to
lose a tree ; while in transplanting those
five and six years old, the roots are so
mutilated that scarcely ten in a hundred
When your trees are received, keep
them as little time out of the ground as
possible ; and if they cannut be set cut
immediately, keep them in a shaded lo
cation until you are ready for them. When
ready to plant out, dig your holes large
enough to admit-without cramping the
roots. Set them as deep, and no deeper,
than when in the nursery. Let all bro
ken roots, or limbs,, be' carefully pruned
off at his time ; and if the ground should
be dry, wet the roots of each tree as it is
set cut, being careful to have the earth
touch every root and fiber. For stand
ard trees, set them CO -feet apart each
way, which will be fifty trees to the acre.
The apple, as a dwarf, on the Doucin or
I'aradiie; we will not treat of here, as
they are more adapted to garden culture.
But we must not omit the dwarf pear,
which is destined to meet with success in
the West, when properly cultivated. This
fruit, mere than any other, requires a
deep, rich, and dry soil, and will prosper
in no other. Set in the earth even with,
or just covering the junction of the pear
with the quincc-sicck. And if set out in
the spring, cut off about eighteen inches
from the ground, the middle or main
shoot. Set them eight feet upart each
way, which would 1 e C50 to the acre ;
and give the very best of culture, apply
ing rotten manure every srrir.g, and
ploughing it in. Raise no crop but low
hoed onos as potatoes, beets, onions, or
csbbnges, among your fruit trees. Bruno

Let the apple tree be yearly shortened

The plum, grafted cr budded on our
wild varieties here, will, no doubt, do
best, and be less liable to the devastation
of the cvrculio.
The peach, too, we are inclined to be
lieve, will be more hardy, less liable to
winter-kill, and more stocky, when bud
ded on the wild plum.
- Of cherries, the Dukes and ?orellos
will for a time take the lend on our prai
ries, being more hardy than the Heart cr
Bigarreau varieties. B it when they can
be had budded cn the Malnleb or Maz
zard, they may succeed here. I have a
few hundred cf thse stock, to test their
adaptation to our foil and climate.
Of grcpes, raspberries, l.Iackberrip?,

How to Raise Toaatccs.
For many years we have been extreme
ly fortunate in cultivating tomatoes ; al
ways having early, large, fine-flavored
ones. We don't know that our plan cf
cultivating is different from that of any
body else who gives aHzniior. to raising
this delicious and healthy fruit. Some
of our friends who have eaten tomatoes
grown by us. want to know "how in th5
world we succeed so well" and we pro
pose very briefly to give our plan:
In the first place we arc particular
about the seed; they should be "saved
from the very first perfect tomato thirt
ripens. Then they should be started
early, in a hot bed, or box kept in a warm
stove room wiih plenty cf light. When
the frost is out of the ground and suffi
ciently warm to transplant, pui o:t'thf
plants, being careful to protect of nights
and cold days a3 long as there is any
danger cf frost ; this can be done by
placing empty nail kegs, boxes, cr two .
boards th'is over the plants. By th'j
time it will do to turn th'em completely
out-of-doors, they are beginning to bloom.
As soon as 8 or 12 healthy blossoms ap
pear, commence "pinning ;" don't allow
aiother shoot cr blossom to grow until the
fruit commences to ripen ; then yon may
allow about as many more blossoms, tut
no more vine to grow. Keep tho vine off
the ground by allowing it to run over
lattice, or brush placed close around it.
This is our plan, and by the practice cf
which, as before said, we never fail tj
have early, large and fine-flivorcd toma
toes. If any body ha3 a better modi,
let us hear from them, and we'll adopt it.

Mn. Editor : By your permission I'
will give some cf my experience in farm
ing. In the first place I practice the old say
mg uri':ir lo-p wh;ia slu-prbi st.yp,
Ar.-i you'il have corn to udl and keep."
I belivo in, and practice, deep plowing.
I also believe m, and practice, making
good fences. Bitter les3 and goal. Poor
fences breed breachy stock. What I un
dertake to do, I try to do well. To insure
good corn it must be tended; not slighted.
For the last ten years I have practiced
fall plowing for wheat and oats. I hare
sowed on fall plowing and harrowed in ;
tut that sowed on corn stubble and plowed
in with a two-horse plow wrs much lho
lest. I have found rolling the ground
after seeding cf great advantage. Xlie
ground is much smoother and in better
condition to harvest.
I am in favor nf hand corn planters!
Can any cf cur farmers give their ex
perience in regnrJ to planters through
the columns of the Fanner?
Hungarian grass I do not think m-ich
of. In the Soring cf 1SZS I sowed thrco
acres and raided a good crop. The r.ext
season I sow d again but without success.
Since t!;at time I have been tryii g to ret
rid cf it; tut cannot do it. The seed
will not winter kill bat keeps on increas
ing. My neighbors have pretty much'
quit raising it.
Now. Mr. Editor, if the above is print
able, ail right; if net, no harm dene.
