Altogether these nine trees hiive home

Irani-lies killed outriijhf. Ijt year the
Uipht was liijhl, while this year there
were hut few branches u (reeled, and (hut
early in the season, which were, as in the
before mentioned cases, cut away as fust
as tdiown. Decides these nine trees of
lleramot, there are seven trees of Whito
Doyenne or Virgulion, which this year
bore, some thirty-one bushel:; t f toleiably
fuir fruit, havinj; been the three preceding;
years badly subject to mildue. (?) This
makes a totul on the t-ixteen trees of 1(M
bushels of fruit. '
Seventy-five bushels of these wore Bold
nearly as they prow on the trees (that is
without picking out iuferior fruit) for
300, or l per bushel tho remainder
being rssoncd for home use and presents
which, if valued at the nKve rate, would
mvp 1 1 the amount to the large sum of four
hundred and twenty-four dollars. This
gives an average value of Ju'O r0 per
tree, which if multiplied by ono hundred
the number reckoned to the acre fuf stan
dard pears, we have the respectable sum
of Si.fi-iO as the worth of an ivcre of pear
trees at the same rates. If we take it
unoihev way, that is, accord ng to tho
value of an acre of trees yielding similar
to one of the JVrgamot trees, thirteen
bushels to the tree, as its worth, and
one acre So,!200.
It would be readily seen that half such
crops would be largo returns, and these
old trees never fail of a fair crop. Boih

... . . ii, i
lu taking up trees, great care should be '
taken to save unbroken as many as possi
blJ uf the very small roots and fibres, even
those bo minute as to be scarcely seen.
Upou die number of tlie.se which are
really the feeders uf the tree, will depend
it? future prowl!, and viVor. Never null

H';uh, eweoj I cihnpfi, m'iho of iti longer
I Inrj.'e roots. I.eave the tnji-r.xit mudof
lately long. lb-fore lifting a tree, loo.ien
the v-oil around it well, and then lake it up
! 1 arcfuilv.
Proper care in this particular
will double the chance of its surviving,
ninl render it ton-fold more valuable after
ward. While out of the ground, the roots
should on lid account b cvpo:-ed to t;:e ?;:m
or dry w!ihL. If not sot out iuuuedcitely,
lot them be covered unci kept damp not
wet. Too much wet. warm parking is
almost as dangerous n dryness.
Dig w ide, deep holes, to be filled with
good mm face soil. He iv lies one of the
great secrets- of sue. ps-ful f.iii:-gr.v,vii,:r.
No mutter how poor the original soil, it is
always comparatively easy to dig out a
large hole, say two to (wo and one-half
feet deep, ninl live to eiht feet in diam
eter, and fill it in with pood soil for the
future bod of the tree. Tho air from
which they derive much nourishment is
just us good over :i barren, sandy field as
over a fertile one, and p ran always get
good soil enough for the tree In grow in,
even if it has to be carted a mile.
Tin; Sou.. -If the ground designed for
fruit or thade trees hn.i a good snrfueo
soil, dig the holes as follows : Throw out
a few inches of the best soil uKn the sur
face, having it itenr by. All Ih Iow this
idimild 1 e spread at a di.-iance. Then fill
in the bottom with the soil near by, and
upon this set the trees. Complete the fill
ing with the best (op soil gathered from
some distance around each hole.' Unless
the ground is already quite rich, it is well
to mix with tho filling a good pup ply of
rotten manure, muck, or decayed leave.
We know of nothing better to put in tho
soil around the roots of nil fruit trees than
ground bones. They need not be finely
ground. The finest poriions will furnish
immediate pabulum or food to the roots,
while the coarser portions will decay gra
dually, and yield an annual supply of nu
triment through a long series of years.
Remember, that after a tree has been set
out, and its roots have commenced to grow
you can not rcauily replace a poor soil
with a belter one, nor can you mix with
it a supply ef fertilizers. The after im
proving will necessarily be by means of
liquid manures. Therefore prepare u
pormanuntly rich soil at first.
Skttinc ourTar.EK Hero, also, a Ut
ile yes, a good deal of caro will pay.
Having taken up tho trees as directed
above, fill up the several holes, so that
when they have settled, each tree will
stand alout as deep as when it grew
originally in the nursery. Then set in
the trees, leaving tho root free, and ex
tended in their natural position. Do not
shovel in the soil upon them in masses,
but sprinkle it in among ami around the
roots (jarring the tree with the hand
occasionally), and press it down lightly.
This done, fill up the rest of the hole with
good soil, as directed nlove.
The ground thould be left a little ele
vated around the trees, to allow for settling.
It is wetl to add even more than this to
support the tree during the winter, and
dig away (he. surplus in the spring.
If the ground is dry at the time of sett
ing, or if dry weather succeeds, an occa
sional watering should le given, ju.-t
enough to keep the ground damp, but not
enough to bake it, or make it wet and cold
