How o Secure ;uud Fruit Crop.
Tho Agricultural ' nnd Horticultural
Society of Vaucluso rocoininonds, that in
order to ensuro a Inro crop in fruit trues
the following plan should be n lopted :
A hole must . bo dug round the tree to n
certain depth in the autumn, but not deep
enough to cxposo tho roots, nnd must then
be filled up with nmnuro; the nmnuro
should be left until frozen, nnd then be
covered with the earth extracted. Thus
covered over, tho manure does not thaw
until a late period, und thereby prevents
the tree from budding early, nnd produces
the effect intended. Tho same society
further makes known thnt it is a well-as
certained fact thnt trees which yield most
(run are those whoso branches grow hori
zontally, instead of vertically ; and it there
fore ; recommends that trees should, so
far na possible, be trained to grow in that
direction ; it even declares that by such
training trees that have never yielded any
fruit previously may be made productive.
Hopping . is said to be a very healthy
operation. Alojiy nave had n complete
restoration of health by it. Though the
taste be litter, the perfume is delicious.
It is quite an attraction, and gives ono an
idea of the manner in which insects are
drawn to their own peculiar diet or com
fort by the sense of smell. Unfortunately
it is ooly to be richly perceived in tho di
rection of the wind, and after a few snilfs
it: ceases to le perceived nt nil. Hut
German' homrropnthists, who nre very
sensitive creatures, and particularly fear
ful of all sorts of smells, nre awfully afraid
of a hop-kiln. We remember a case of
a young lady, who was under German
homrfiopathie trentmont, telling her physi
cian lhat bhrt had been a hopping, and
she began to expatiate on the deliciousness
of the perfume. Rut he screamed with
horror. Ilorreeble! horreeble! mo.st
horreeble ! You could not havo done any
thing worse! You hove spoiled the effect
of all my medicine. I shall just have to
begin again !, Did I not tell you to keen
free of smells ?' I don't call it a smell.
I call it a perfume,' retorted the lady.
Veil, it is de same dins. suid the doctor.
He ' published a pamphlet on the cure of
tootnacne by smell.

A damp match will light readily by
first holding it to the arm or other warm

rubbing it gently on woollen cloth of dose
texture, such as doe-skin, or what is com

if the cotniHisition is almost as soft ns put

We have printed in this part of our
paper several times the fact that buck
wheat meul makes very much better cakes
by being composed of one-fourth of good
oatmeal. Thus: With every three bush
els of buckwheat grind one bushel of
bright, heavy oats, us if all were buck
wheat. This meal gives a crust and
lightness to the cakes, adding much to
their quality and wholesomeness.
If the following correspondence can be
relied on, a very general idea (that mules
are barron) will be exploded:
- San Marcos, Texas, Oct. 7, lS-'tG.
I havo a mule thnt 1 raised, three years
old in June last, that now has a colt by
her aide. Please say what 1 must call it.
Its ears are not like tho mule nor the
horse. In other respects it resembles the
mule, If any one disputes it, I have the
mule and lier colt in my lot ; the doubting
Thomas' can see for themselves.
