' As spring -approaches the mind of
fthe farmer naturally turns towards
.the planting of seeds and the letting
put of plants. At this time .do not per
'mit the practical to entirely eclipse the
beautiful. Take another step in ad
vance In the ornamentation of the
farm and home. Put out a few trees
.and vines at least. This does not
necessarily mean a large outlay for
trees and shrubs -brought .from a dis
tance. In many places on the farm
trees will be found growing wild that
if removed and placed in a position
where they will be observed in rela
tion to certain other objects will be
'come things of .beauty and value. A
.few running vines, 'planted In proper
positions, will add much to the ap
pearance of the old place.
o According to the statement of a
prominent horticulturist, frozen apples
may be utilized In the making of vine
gar. The gentleman in mind said that
one winter he had some apples stored
In his mill that were caught by a hard
freeze. He did nothing with them till
they were thawed out in the spring,
at- which t!mo he put them into his
cider mill end ground and pressad
them. He got one-third more cider
than croal and it made first-class vine
gar, and even took css time to ac
quire acidity than cider made from
unfrozen apples. "We all know how
Juicy the apple Is that hangs on the
tree all winter and is thawed ont In
the spring. But if there la no objec
tion to such vinegar the question nat
urally rites "VThy don't they make all
Uieir cider that way. since they gain
one-third more In Quantity?"
There are many old orchards that
-might be galvanized Into life by a
.thorough pruning. When they are in
their last stage the danger of such an
operation Is small; for their usefulness
is near an end anyway, and if a few
ertra crops can be obtained by heroic
methods, they should be applied. It
is no unusual thing to see a decadent
orchard given up to the woodman. A
few issues ago we referred to some
experiments by H. A. Aldrich, in
which the results of pruning an old
orchard were snown. In his case the
trees bore a heavy crop of apples -the
following year. Whether subsequent
years will show success or failure re
mains to be seen. The effect may .be
.where a heavy crop Is secured for a few
similar to that of girdling or ringing,
years, but early death results. In the
case of young vineyards and orchards
this is not a result to be worked for;
but we con afford to take long chances
with dying orchards.
The writer remembers an old Green
ing apple tree In the East that had
lived and borne fruit till Its trunk had
been split open by some process of
nature, revealing a heart falling Into
decay. A great gale came and tipped
the tree over till it rested on its
branches. One would think that such
a tree had lived out its entire life, and
this would have been the case had not
the tree been in a place that was in
every way suitable to stimulate its
recovery. It was sheltered to some
extent by the farm outbuildings and
more by a board fence. It also re
ceived the drainage from the barn
yard, and in fact its roots extended
to the barnyard. So it continued to
live, and year after year it bore a
small quantity of very large apples,
which were fine in texture and superior
in quality. It illustrated the faeVthat
a large supply of fertility in- liquid
form is of great value as a health
restorer to decadent trees. If we would
take this lesson more to heart we
would have fewer unproductive or
chards. The- statement is probably
true that more orchards are starved to
death than are killed by overfeeding.
lMxteil l'otatoea and Corn.
Last summer I was greatly inter
ested in watching a field of "listed" po
tatoes and corn, says L. B. Pierce in
Country Gentleman. A town Irishman
had under his charge a small farm just
outside the city. He rented it, but
when plowing-time came the tenant
gave up the contract, and left him with
a piece of land of rather doubtful fer
tility and no one to work It It had
been in corn the year before, and my
Irish friend, with but one horse, set
nis wits to work to get another crop
with a minimum of labor. He ran a
large shovel plow between the rows
one way and marked with a corn
marker the other. He then dropped by
band a strip of potatoes, and planted
the rest with corn, covering all by
straddling each furrow with a Planet
Jr. cultivator, with the sweeps turned
inward. The potatoes came nicely, but
the seed corn, being taken from a lot
got at a feed store, nearly all-failed.
It was replanted with a "jabber" or
hand-planter, but the soil being shal
low it failed to cover nicely and was
again replanted with a hoe. The re
sult was a long-drawn-out period of
waiting for the smallest to get big
enough to cultivate, the owner not be
ing advanced enough in his methods
to harrow or get a fine-tooth cultiva
tor; in fact, he was bound to be at no
additional expense for this somewhat
problematical and accidental piece of
farming. It must have been about
seven weeks after the potatoes were
planted before the man got in to cul
tivate, working across corn and pota
toes the first time. By the time he
got ready to cross his cultivating, the
potatoes were a foot high and alive
with bugs just hatched; but he was
equal to the occasion, and one morn
ing I saw him with two wild-cherry
boughs lashed across his cultivator.
The boughs in going and returning
swept as with a besom the high, slen
der tops, brushing about all the bugs
to the ground, and many of the smaller
when buried by the cultivator -never
got back upon the tops, whlle'all were
so distributed as to do comparatively
little injury; he had to use Paris green
on only two poor slopes where the po
tatoes, were too small to receive proper
treatment at the passing of the brush.
After the man once started the culti
vator he worked as only an Irishman
can work, and the result seems to
"point to a fine crop of potatoes, and as
good corn as could be expected with
two seed failures. I might explain that
the crop the previous year had -been
tspt very clean, and -the land not be
ing reversed there was but little
trouble with early weeds.
This is the first case or "Hating",
svhich has. come under my observation,
and the inference I should draw would
be that where corn is to follow corn
it might, with some modification, be
practiced even in Ohio. Had the man
started cultivating across the furrows
the day after planting, while the aaarks
were fresh, and put the cultivator
dowm deep close to the hills, there
woald have been but a very email spot
aot loosened. The other way, the old
cornhills would guide the cultivator
at say time before the crop came ap,
and It would be possible to have the
whole under clean, mellow cultivation
before the crop came ap. It is a quick
way' of putting in corn or potatoes, and
if I had a rush Job on hand I should
not. hesitate to try it.

From Farmers' Review: It is some
what remarkable that in the prepara
tion and the application of Bordeaux
Mixture, operations that the orchard
1st and the gardener are now pretty
well acquainted with, there should be
complaint as to the efficacy of the
fungicide. It is said that the com
pound is sometimes no more useful
than, mere water and that a substance
like chalk settles at the bottom and
will not dissolve and mix readily with
the liquid part In the first, case the
trouble is probably not in the fungi
cide, but is due to the disease hav
ing got too great a headway before
being sprayed. The disease must be
prevented, not cured, therefore, spray
early and thoroughly.
The chalky powder fs found only in
old mixture or at least in that not
freshly prepared. Its formation may
be explained as follows: When the
solutions of lime and of copper are
united in the formation of Bordeaux
mixture there is a chemical as well as
a physical combination, but the fine
particles of the combined lime and
copper commence to collect In little
masses which gradually become too
heavy for the water to hold up and
they fall to the bottom of the powdery,
chalky mass. It may be seen, then,
that if these particles are too large to
be held in suspension they will not be
as effective when applied to the plants
as if they were smaller. The follow
ing will prove the case.
Some Bordeaux was made and al
lowed to stand for a few weeks. It
was then applied to plots 'of potatoes,
as was also some freshly mixed fungi
cide. Some plots were also left un
sprayed. It was found that the plats
eprayed with the odd mixture were at
the ends first sprayed as free from
disease as were the plots sprayed with
fresh mixture, but that the last ends
of the plats were as badly diseased
as were the plats not sprayed at all.
This shows that the effective part of
the fungicide in the old mixture rap
idly settled to the bottom and was
pumped out at once, thus leaving only
water, and that in the newly made
stuff the poison was evenly distributed
and thus uniformly effective.
It Is. clear from these experiments
that this fungicide should be applied
as soon after being mixed as possible.
In fact, some growers are this year go
ing to mix only what can be applied
in one day. It Is believed by some of
them that the'throwing away of what
ever is left at the close of the day's
operations would be an economy in
If. G. KAINa
We notice in a contemporary an as
sault on clover hay. The writer of the
article in question seems to think it
an impossibility to get clover hay in
good order, and says he had "rather
raise three babies than one clover hay
crop." That is an odd comparison,
and we are inclined to think that he
knows about as much about raising
one as the other. The complaint is
made that it is difficult to get a catch,
and after the catch is made it is diffi
cult to know when to cut it. After
that the rain always comes, with him,
and soaks the hay, making it moldy
and unfit lo use. Well, we would ad
vise a little experience in the matter.
It is indeed often difficult to get a
catch, and in some years no amount
of forethought can prevent a failure.
Many of our best farmers succeed in
getting a start by sowing on the snow
As to cutting clover, it has long been
a settled tenet with our scientific
farmers to cut at time of the earliest
blooms, unless the field is a small one.
when it may be cut at time of full
bloom. The reason for mowing at
time of first blooms is to get the whole
field cut and In process of curing be
fore the blooms begin to fade. This
prevents the stalks becoming woody
and gives us the fodder in the best
possible shape. The curing of clover
hay is not such a difficult feat, with
good weather. If foggy New England
can cure clover hay, we see no reason
why it should be a difficult task in the
West, where the amount of sunshine
per month is much greater. In recent
years, too, we have the help of a new
invention the bay cap. These caps
can be made for a few cents each, and
are a complete protection against
storms that may come at time of cur
ing the clover. They will last a long
time, for some years they will not
have to be used at all.
For Girdled Trees.
About five years ago I had about
fifty trees girdled by mice, caused by
some heads of wheat that had fallen
among the mulching, carelessly left in
cutting the wheat I inquired what
was best to do; most advised to re
plant with new trees. This did not
suit me so I concluded to experiment
on them, writes a contributor to Na
tional Stockman. My trees were about
eight years old, good and thrifty. They
had been eaten some time before I no
ticed them, some were eaten part way
round and others all the way round.
I took a sap sprout or straight limb
of tree that had plenty of sap, cut it
long enough to reach across the en
place and entered above and below
one-half inch or more Into the sound
bark. This piece I mostly, split and
shaved the end so that when I took
a very small chisel or anything that
would raise the bark, i could insert
both ends under bark. On some I put
grafting wax, on others I used clay
and cow manure, and covered all over
with earth. I lost only one tree out
of about fifty and I think I saved
$300 and it took less than two days to
do it I should have said when eaten
all around took four pieces according
to the size of tree. When split it is
easier to bend. I would use both the
split and the round, and fit In so that
it will make a good conductor ta carry

Millions op "Women Use Cuttcuba Soap exclusively
for preserving, purifying, and beautifying the skin, for
cleansing the scalp of crusts, scales, and dandruff, and the
stopping of falling hair, for softening, whitening, and
healing red, rough, and sore hands, in the form of baths
for annoying irritations, inflammations, and chafings, or
too free or offensive perspiration, in the form of washes,
for ulcerative weaknesses, and for many sanative antiseptic
purposes which readily suggest themselves to women, and
especially mothers, and for all the purposes of the toilet,
bath, and nursery. No amount of persuasion can induce
those who have once used it to use any other, especially
for preserving and purifying the skin, scalp, and hair of
infants and children. Cuticura Soap combines delicate
emollient properties derived from Cuticura, the great
skin cure, with the purest of cleansing ingredients and the
most refreshing of flower odors. No other medicated or
toilet soap ever compounded is to be compared with it
for preserving, purifying, and beautifying the skin, scalp,
hair, and hands. No other foreign or domestic toilet soap,
however expensive, is to be compared with it for all the
purposes of the toilet, bath, and nursery. Thus it com
bines in One Soap at One Price, viz., Twenty-Five Cents,
the best skin and complexion soap, the best toilet and
best baby soap in the world.-
