experiment station
has the following
to make on apple
Apple trees need
water. If the sup
ply of water in the
soil in an orchard
Is deficient when
the fruit is matur
ing, as It frequently is, the trees cannot
produce a full crop of apples, however
they may have been fed and other-
cared for. The lack of a sufficient
amount of water in the soil in orchards
often is the cause of apples dropping
prematurely and the ripening of win
ter fruit during the fall months. While
it may be impracticable to attempt to
supply water artificially In most cases,
at least, to orchards in this state, yet
much can be done by good management
to prevent the needless escape of the
natural supply, and in this way large
quantities of water may be retained
in the soil for the use of the trees
when It is needed by them. A mulch
of grass, leaves or other organic mat
ter is useful for this purpose, and tbe
ground in some cases may be culti
vated in the open spaces to good advan
tage. In this connection we must en
ter a protest against the practice of
trimming off the lower limbs of apple
trees. This allows the wind to sweep
through beneath them and the sun to
shine in and dry up the soil over their
roots. In the average orchard in Rhode
Island these limbs should be spared if
for no other reason than to retard the
evaporation of moisture from the soil
beneath the trees.
Apple Trees Use Sunlight In order
to produce ten barrels of fruit as the
product of one or two seasons growth,
an apple tree must do a large amount
of work in collecting the crude mate
rials required and in manufacturing
them into such refined products as
Gravensteins, Greenings or Baldwins.
Sunlight, by its action upon the foliage,
furnishes largely the power that runs
the machinery of an apple tree. The
amount of this power that a tree can
use in a measure determines how much
fruit the tree can bear. For this rea
son the surface area of the top of an
apple tree should be as large and as
well exposed to the light as circum
stances will allow. The natural habit
of the apple tree is to form a rounded
top with its branches bending lov o
catch as much sunlight as is possiu.e.
It is a too common practice to cut off
these lower limbs, which may in the
case of a well-grown tree represent
from 400 to 800 square feet of the nor
mal bearing surface of the top, and in
this way to permanently injure the
trees. It is as important for an apple
tree that is to do its best work to have
its top adjusted to use tha light as it is
tor a sailing vessel to be trimmed to
catch the wind. Save the lower limbs
that increase the surface area of the
top, for these when the roots are well
cared for enlarge the bearing capacity
of the tree, but th& out and when nec
essary shorten in the limbs that the
light may shine brighter on those
which are left
Sunlight and Fruit Buds. Limbs of
apple trees that are exposed to strong
light produce more fruit buds than
those which are in partial shade. In
order to prove this we secured permis
sion to go into an orchard where the
trees, although rather too near togeth
er, were on the whole well gnmn, and
cut two limbs from each of ten trees
in different parts of the orchard. The
limbs selected were about one Inch in
diameter, and in each case one was
taken that was fully exposed to sun
light and the other where partially
shaded. When the limbs were taken
to the laboratory where the buds were
counted the action of the sunlight in
promoting the formation of fruit buds
was apparent
Fertilizers oa Wbeat.
Bulletin 71 of the Ohio Experiment
Station, now being distributed, gives
the results of the station's experiments
with fertilizers for the seven years,
1S89 to 1S95 inclusive. In the average
f these seven years the wbeat grown
continuously on the same land at Col
umbus yielded twenty-five bushels par
acre, and this yield was increased by
five to six bushels in the average by
the use of fertilizers. Throughout this
seven-year test it was observed that
fertilizers carrying phosphoric acid
produced a marked increase of plant
growth in the fall, and it was hoped
that, in seasons of severe winter kill
ing, such fertilizers might enable the
plant to successfully resist the ad
verse climatic influences; but in 1896,
the yield of the unfertilized plots hav
ing fallen to less than half a bushel
per acre, the largest increase made by
any fertilizer was not more than three
bushels. In the experiments at Woos
ter, where wheat is grown in rotation
with corn, oats, clover and timothy,
three' crops have now been harvested.
The results for 1894 and 1895 are giv
en In Bulletin 71. In 1S94 there was
no increase, in 1895 the increase on the
plots receiving a complete fertilizer
averaged nearly eight bushels over an
unfertilized yield of three bushels;
while in 1896. the winter killing being
almost complete, the unfertilized yield
baa averaged but a bushel to the acre,
uxd the increase over this has been
'.ess than six bushels. The fertilisers

1895, In this rotation made a good
catch, and maintained its hold through
out the season, notwithstanding the un
favorable conditions, and In the fall
the growth on the unfertilized plots ap
peared even better than where fertil
izers had been applied to the wheat.
During the winter, however, the clover
was badly heaved out, the destruction
being much more complete on the un
fertilized plots, and these finally gave
an average yield of less than fifteen
hundred pounds of hay per acre, a
large portion of which was ragweed,
while eight plots receiving a complete
fertilizer, used at the rate of about 400

average rate of six tons per acre, gave
an average increase of more than a ton
per acre, or a total yield of a ton and
three-quarters. In the three-crop rota
tion of potatoes, wheat and clover, the
unfertilized wheat yielded -this year
seven bushels and a half per acre, and
this was increased to twelve bushels
by the use of complete fertilizers. The
clover following the unfertilized wheat
of last year yielded nearly two tons per
acre, while the increase from fertilizers
averaged nearly six hundred pounds,
and that .from barnyard manure was
over thirteen hundred pounds, the
quantities of fertilizers and manure be
ing the same as in the five crop rota
tion. In these experiments neither fer-
tilizers nor barnyard manure have
more than partially prevented the de
struction of either wheat, clover or
timothy by winter killing. In the case
of wheat, six tons of barnyard manure
has produced about the same average
effect as four hundred pounds of fertil
izer, but in the case of the clover and
timothy following the wheat, the aver
age residual effect of the manure has
been considerably greater than that of
the fertilizer.
rrojjregslve Farming:.
Times and conditions are necessar
ily alwi-.ys changing. We cannot do all
thintrs as thev once were done. We
must watch the signs of the age and be
governed accordingly. We cannot
farm as our grandfathers did, for the
latters' practices if now followed would
result in bankruptcy. The farmer must
be progressive. He must climb out of
the "rut." use his brains to show him
the right course to follow, and not be
weighed down and burdened by tradi
tions and hoary precepts now proved
to be unworthy of credence. I do not
mean to be understood to imply that
any farmer should embrace every new
theory and follow it blindly just be
cause it is new, but rather put him
telf in the line of testing the new and
holding to that which is good, while
discarding the wrong. Nor, on the
Jther hand, should the farmer be pre
judiced against any plan or method be
cause it is old. If it is old. and has
firmly stood the test of years, all the
better. The whole labor lies In the sift
ing of truth from error. Farmers of
the old school are as a class radically
opposed to what they please to term
"book" farming. This is all wrong.
The farmer must read books, papers
and magazines devoted to his calling.
He must keep posted. Otherwise how
is he to keep up with the procession,
I should like to know. The time when
a man can keep aloof from all out
side knowledge and comradeship and
make farming pay has departed.
Grange meetings, and all agricultural
associations and institutes cannot be
too highly indorsed as mediums for
making progressive farmers. The
farmer of the next century will become
more and more a man of thought and
intellect, for only by so becoming may
he hope to cope successfully with the
ever recurring problems that arise for
practical solution. The progressive
farmer must occasionally visit the near
by city where he markets his produce.
There he is to observe and listen to
find out how to pack in best shape,
and to learn what the market demands;
but of course these excursions are mere
incidents, the chief labor and atten
tion of the farmer is demanded upon
the farm itself. The thrifty, progressive
farmer will show his character clearly
by his stock, farm buildings and fields.
The fruits of practicing modern ideas
and following the most trustworthy
light upon agricultural matters will be
very manifest All classes of stock
will not be of a nondescript standard,
but of some recognized breed. They
will show the evident results of care ,
and goad management. The farm
buildings will be solid and substantial,
and, what is more, covered with a good
coat of paint not alone for appear
ance's sake, but for the purpose of se
curing greater durability and lasting
mialitits. The fields will show the re-
nuits gi tne licerai u&e o uuaKe cou-
- .. .. sll I
!ed with fertilization witnout stmt
The progressive man's acres never
look as though they had just been
pulled through the proverbial "seven
years of Tharaoh." but rather they
support a vegetation of great luxuri
ance and abundance. Finally, it may
be said that the lands of the progres
sive farmer are constantly undergoing
some improvement; something is al
ways being done for the betterment of
the farm. There is no stagnation.

Kerosene Eraatnloa Applications,
Prof. Howard Evarts Weed, in a bul
letin of the Mississippi station, says:
Although poisons like Paris green are

their food hr Mekinc, yet as external
Irritant, like kerosene, ia Applicable ta
all, and it Matters net hew they take
their food. Kerosene can be used
against all Insects except those living
in confined places where they cannot,
be reached, such as tomato worms;
those living in stored grain, etc. The
amount of kerosene which should be)
.used will vary with the kind of Insect
to" be treated, some requiring a much
larger proportion than others. Nearly
all plants will bear-one part of keror
sene to ten of water, but when a strong
er application Is to be made, it should
first be tested on a few plants to see
If the foliage is affected. For the treat
ment of ordinary Insects the following
proportions are recommended: -
Plant-lice, of all kind, 1-20.
Caterpillars or other larvae exposed
on leaves, 1-15.
Scale insects on leaves. 1-10.
Scale insects on bark, summer treat
ment, 2-10.
Scale insects on bark, winter treat
ment, 3-10.
Lice on domestic animals, except
hogs. 3-10.
lice on nogs mu ucw on cattle, 5-10.
The mixing of the two. liquids takes
place partially in the pump, but more
largely in the nozzle, where they are
divided into very fine particles. Of
course a mixture made in this way is
not a permanent one, nor is it neces
sary that it should be so. What is
needed is simply a dilution of the kero
sene so that it will not cause Injury
when applied, and the attachment ac
complishes this object fully.
Uow to Bee-
Somebody ought to establish a hoeing
school and teach our young people and
1 our hired men how to use a hoe, is the
opinion of a writer in Pomona Her
ald. It makes me sick wnen 1 see how
our help do this important work. The
fundamental error with them is to
think that the purpose of hoeing is ta
kill weeds and nothing else. Conse
quently they just skip over the surface,
trying to hit the weeds, and if no weeds
happen to be there the spot is skippe
over untouched. When the job is.done
our man or men think the weeds are
done for; but in a few days the ground
is again well occupied. The fact la
this scraping over tbe surface is not bjj
any means the best way to kill weeds,
and it amounts to nothing much in
other respects. A good hoeing should
touch and stir the whole surface, and
freshen It, and give the weeds such a
set-back that they will not recover
from it in a long time. When I hoe
I let the hoe go in cornerwise, and
when I get done there Is no spot that
is left with the old crust on. whether
there were weeds or not The fresh
ground, soon after hoeing, looks smooth
and clean and attractive. There is an
inch of well-pulverized soil all over the
whole surface, and the plants, thus
surrounded by fresh, moist, loose soil,
seem to be grateful and respond with
quickened growth.
Exhibition Coops.
When some months ago there sud
denly confronted the poultry fancier,
the glad tidings of the concession in re
duction of express rates on poultry
breeding stock, he flattered himself that
at show times, by re-arrangement of
his exhibition coops he should be able
to save to himself many dollars, as
compared with past transportation
charges, writes Nellie Hawks in Prac
tical Farmer. But this dream proved
to be a delusion after a time. Some
among the prominent breeders of this
section had made over, at considerable
expense, the coops they had exhibited
their fine specimens in heretofore. For
the new law required all shipping
coops to be of wood entire if the ship
per would receive the benefits of half
rates. So far, the new law worked ad
mirably. Everybody was glad, and
many more sales and purchases were
made upon the strength of it. But
when it came to express rates on exhi
bition coops and specimens, therein the
fancier found himself none the better
off for having had his canvas-covered
frames converted into heavier wooden
coops. With the canvas coops we were
charged double first-class rates whej
sending fowls to exhibitions. Bu
birds and coops sent out for exhibition
purposes were returned free when such
rates were paid, and, of course, light
weight coops saved much in expense in
such a case. The exhibitor, calculating
upon saving half the express charges
by having his exhibition coops remod
eled and more firmly constructed, had
not counted that the additional weight
of said coops would equal or exceed
in transportation charges the charges
made upon canvas coops. Under the
new ruling, the exhibition coops and
specimens sent to shows at single rates
must be paid for at same rates upon
return of them over the road, while
birds sent in canvas coops and at dou
ble first-class rates were returned free.
Thus was the remodeler of coops
nut to all this additional expense, ho.
gjgg adding to, ratner man diminish
. . . .. '
ing transportation charges to and from
the places 01 exnioiuon. One promi
nent exhibitor of many fowls, without
having investigated thoroughly, but
having in reality "jumped to conclu
sions." had bis exhibition coops all
remodeled at an expense of more than
50. Imagine his disappointment up
on learning that coops sent out at sin
gle rates must be also returned at sin
gle rates, whereas he bad concluded
that at those single rates they would
be returned home, free of charge, just
as were coops upon which double first
class rates were paid. To "live and
learn" is the only way. And such a
dear teacher does experience some
times prove.

A writer ia am English paper asserts
that: "It waa my good fortcae to
innch in the company of several poets
.of faste aad repute. There waa pres
ent at this delectable and memorable
banquet one of the most charming and
.witty American women that the world
has ever known. The poets were re
'cording various good stories, and one
related a tale he had heard of Words
worth, by one who bad known him in
timately. It seems that this' bard was
in the habit of writing at night and in
'the early morning, and that he used to
rouse his wife about 4 o'clock and ex
claim: 'Maria, get up! I have thought
of a good word I' Whereupon his obe
dient helpmeet arose and recorded it
on paper. About half an hour after
ward a new inspiration would seize up
on the poet and he would call out
'Maria, get up! I've thought of a better
word.' We listened to this story with
admiration, but the bright-eyed Ameri
can woman remarked, with a wave of
red rose in her hand: 'Well, if he'd
been my husband, I should have said,
Wordsworth, get up! I've thought of a
bad word!"
