If you want native cedars to
grow, go yourself to the tree,
taking with you a gunny-sack or a
square of muslin, dig around the
tree, disturbing the roots as little as
possible, lift the tree, put it tightly
in the gunny-sack or muslin, take it
home and plant it thus, aud it is
said that there will be scarcely any
doubt of its good growth thereafter.
This is about the method of Jacob
Ernst and Judge Higgins.
The following local was omitted
from last week's Journal. Judge
I. N. Taylor of Oakdale was in the
city Monday. The Judge is about
to enlarge the Pen and Plow, and
desires to engage the generous busi
ness men of Columbus to assist him
with a share of their patronage.
They have always been exceedingly
liberal with our neighboring news
papers, and their aid has been duly
appreciated by him.
Two of the best practical jokers
of this city are F. Brodfuehrer and
Geo. Wandel. We are informed by
one who learned of their last prac

couple, even to a cooking -stove,
pictures on tho wall, a clock iu

three times as great as any busi

what he has to sell, in brisk times
he ceases not to herald the glad tid

A most valuable, and it is claim

can definitely learn the needs of his
soil, and how to largely increase the
profits of his labor. There is also a
great variety of timely, practical
articles for the field and garden,
with a full hundred original illus
trative engravings, large and small.
Among the note-worthy articles are :
Caponizing, showing how any one
can easily aud safely perform it, and
thus greatly increase the quality of
his poultry; Grapevines for every
body ; Guernsey Cattle fully describ
ed; Prickly Comfrey, an important
fodder crop. The work of the
mouth laid ouf, with numerous
hints ; An interesting breed of fowls ;
