Grass For the Lawn.
We will nupgose that the Kprinp plant
ings of trees nave been made with open
rmces reserved for the favorite games.
Now the cround can be prepared lor
grass seed, for it need not bt trampled
over any more. If certain parts have
become packed and hard, the should
be dug or ploughed deeply again, then
harrowed and raked lxirfectly smooth,
and all stones, big or little, taken from
the surface. The seed may now be
own, and it should be of thick, fine
growing varieties, Mich as are employed
in Contral Park and other pleasuro-
f rounds. Mr. Samuel Pan-ons. Jun.,
uporintondeat of Central Park, writes
me: "The best gram eeds for ordinary
lawns are a mixture of red-top and Ken
tucky blue-graK". in equal part-, with
tmrlikps a bmall amount of whit cloyer.
On very sandy ground I pn-fer the Ken
tucky blue-gras.s. as it is very hardy and
vigorous under advere rlrcnmtanccs."
Having .sown and rakrd in the seed
very lightly, a great advantage will be
gained iu passing a lawn roller over the
ground. I have tucceedd well in get
ting a good "catch" of grass by sow
ing the seed with outs, which were cut
and cured an hay as ?oon as the grain
wue what i termed "in the milk." The
strong and quickly growing oats mak"
the ground grc-n in a few daj'3 and
shelter the aiowcr-maturing gra-n roots.
Mr. Parsons says. "I jref.-r to sow the
E-ass seed alone." As soon as the grasa
igins to grow with some vigor, cut it
often, for this tnds to thicken it and
Croduce the -.elvety eflVet that In .o
eantiful. From the very first the lawn
will need weeding. The ground con
tains seeds of strong-growing plants
such as dock, plantain, etc., which
should be taken out as fast as they ap
pear. To some the dandelion irf a weed,
but not to me, unless it lake.-, more than
itA share of space, for I always miss
thee little earth stars when they are ab
sent. They intensify tho sunshine. shim
mering orTrlio lawn, making one smile
involuntarily when seeing them. More
over, they awaken pleasant memories,
for a childhood in which dandelions
had no part is a defective experience.
In late autumn the fallen leaves should
be raked carefully away, as they tend to
smother the grass if jwrniittcd to lie un
til spring. Now comes the chief oppor
tunity of the year, in the form of a lib
eral (ojMlressing of manure from tin
stable. If this in spread eenly and not
too thickly in November, and tho
coarser remains of it raked off early in
April, the n-niilt will be astonishing. A
deep emerald hue will be imparted to
the grans, and the frequent cuttings re
quired will soon prouuee a turf that
vicldrt to the foot like a Persian rug.
If tho stable manure run be com
posted and left till thoroughly deeaed,
line, and friable, all the better. If sta
ble manure can not be obtained, Mr.
1'arsoud recommends Mapes's fertilizer
for lawns. A'. I'. Hoc, m Harper' Mag
azine for April.
One of our chief Minn is to form an
evenly balanced, open, symmetrical
bead, ami thi.s can often be accom
plished betUr by a little watchfulness
during the .season of growth than at any
other time. If for instance, two branches
start mi closely together that one or the
other must be removed in the spring
pruning, why let the Miperlluoiis one
grow at all? It is just - much wa-ted
dibit. I5y rubbing off the pushing bud
or tender shoot the .strength of the tree
is thrown into the branches that we
wish to remain. Thus the rye and hand
of the uinMir become to the young tree
what hint ruction, coun.-cl and admoni
tion ate to
o a growing not, with luc
that the tree is casilv and cer-
tainly managed v. lien taken in lime.
Trees left to themselves tend to form
too much wood, like the grapc-iine. Of
course, tine fruit is impossible when the
head of a tree is like a thicket. The
growth of unchecked branehes follows
tho terminal bud. thus producing long
naked reaches of wood devoid of fruit
spurs; Therefore the need of .shorten
ing in. so that side branches may be
developed. When the reader remem
bers that every dormant bud in early
spring is a possible branch, and that
even the immature buds at the nil of
of lite leaves in early summer can be
foroed into immediate growth by pinch
ing back the leading shoot, he will .-co
how entirely tin young tree is under his
control. These simple facta and princi
ples are worth far more to the intelli
gent man than any number of arbitrary
rules a.s to the pruning. Reason ami
observation soon guide his hand in -uni-mer,
or his knife in March, the season
when trees art' usually trimmed.
Ileyond shortening in leading branch
es ami cutting out crossing and inter
fering boughs mi as to keep the head
svmmetrical and.ipen to light and air,
the cherry docs not need very much
pruning. If with the lapse of wars it
becomes necessary to take off large
limbs from any fruit-tree, the authori
ties recommend early June as the best
season for t lie operation. K. l Hoc. in
Harper a Magazine for April.
Two College Stories.
Some interesting situations- have eomo
up at Harvard apropos of the enforce
ment of "involuntary prayers." The
other day a party of four young men.
with dark hair and slightly aquiline
noM'j". picked fellows among the stu
dents, waited upon the dean of lite
faculty ami asked to be excused from
chapel in the morning, on the ground
that they were .lews and had religious
scruples against attending I'hritian
son-ices. The good doctor "knew the ap
plying students- by sight only, and, as
lie made a memorandum of their re
quest, casually asked their names. Aft
er he had put them down, his tablet
run something like this- Solomon Isaac
liOwe, Abram (Jreenbauer. Moo .1.
Stern. Jacob l'riodburgor. It truck the
cotiscrver of moral 'discipline that it
was a little extraordinary that lie had not
heard of this Hebrew quartet; o. though
he granted them the required leave of
absence from prayers, he looked into the
matter, and found, of course, that this
was only another expedient of godless
youth to "cut chapel."
This reminds the historian of a -torv
of his juvenage. A young collegian of
his acquaintance was called up for a
reprimand before his college president.
He had made up a concatenation of
words to explain away the misdemeanor
for which he was reproved, but his
statement had not the desired effect on
"Young man." said that worthy sol
emnly, "is it passible that you really ex
pect me to believe such a lot of non
sense? Can you look me in the eye and
repeat what you have boon saying?"
The graceless youth looked up non
chalantly, ami inquired: "Which eye.
