At a convention of nurserymen held
not lonq ago the question as to
whether trees and plants were dug
toe early in the fall. While it is a
question that more nearly concerns
the grower of trees and plants than
the planter, it is worthy of close con
sideration on the part of the latter.
That fall planting of nearly all trees
and shrubs is preferable to spring
planting has long been the feeling
among growers who have studied the
varied phases of nature. Unfortunate
ly, planters who set out trees, either
fruit or ornamental, shrubs or roses,
in the fall, are apt to want them so
oarly that the grower, to satisfy the
demand, is obliged to dig and ship
them before they have properly ma
tured. The result is a large percent
age of loss, which, of late years, has
had ;he effect of practically doing
awaj with fall planting, a serious
Trees and shrubs which have reach
ed a proper stage of maturity are best
planted in the fall, from the fact that
they are dormant, or nearly so, so far
as the trunk and tops are concerned.
The sap is stored in the roots and
hence the tree or shrub planted in
the fall will take hold of the soil and
make a strong root growth before the
severe winter weather sets in.
When, however, these trees and
shrubs are taken up in the fall before
they have reached the proper stage of
maturity, that is. the maturity of the
past season's growth, they are weak
ened and unable to stand the winter.
While the grower and dealer are
largely to blame for this state of
affairs, by reason of taking up these
trees and plants contrary to the laws
of nature, which, in this connection,
they thoroughly understand, "the
planter should bear tle most blame
for demanding an early delivery of
the trees and plants.
A farmer grinds his ax or scythe
and starts out to do the work for
which some tools have been made. He
carries along with him a whetstone
to keep them in good order. The
'same may be said of a memorandum
book, which may be carried along to
whet the memory and keep it in good
order. This is worth a trial and
should not be ignored.
If you find that your horse is lame
or sick, treat him at once for the
A subscriber has trouble in teaching
his young calves to drink. We con
fess that this is not one of the easy
things to do. especially if we are in a
hurry and want to accomplish the feat
quickly. A little patience is neces
sary. Bear in mind all the time that
the young calf is not very different
from what we were at an early period
in cur history, and we do not know
but what it may lie truthfully said of
some of use that this continues to be
our normal condition. Gently place
the calf's nose into the milk, which
must always be blood heat. Put a
very small amount of milk in the pail
or receptacle in which your calf is
fed. one half inch is sufficient, and
push the little bovine's nose down onto
the bottom of the pail. It will soon
learn that you are performing a
friendly act. and will get a taste of
the milk and begin to stick, sip and
bunt the bottom of the pail. Add to
the milk and continue the good work
until the calf gets enough. Do not
put in enough to cover the nostrils.
One or two such lessons and the calf
will rapidly take care of all the milk
it should have.
The past season has been another
of the profitable small fruit seasons
when almost everything T"at had rea
sonable care has yielded a good re
turn. Some five or six years ago we
had such a succession of drouthy
years that it seemed as if it was &
bad business if undertaken without
some possibility of irrigation. We
may have such seasons again and
probably will, but we have much to
encourage us in improved varieties
and methods and we are now inclined
to think that in good soils the grow
ing of small fruit may be one of the
best branches of fruit industry that
can be undertaken in the west.
ARTICHOKES FOR HOGS.
Artichokes are vtury valuable as
food for hogs during fall and winter.
They produce an abundant yield per
acre and while they are by no means
extensively grown many hog raisers
who have given artichokes a good
trial prize them highly as food for
breeding as well as for growing stock.
In chemical composition they do not
differ much from potatoes. They con
tain about SO per cent of water, 2.5
per cent of protein. 17 per cent of car
bohydrates and .2 per cent of fat. This
corresponds very closely to the compo
sition of potatoes with the exception
of protein, which exists in smaller
quantities in potatoes than in arti
chokes. Too many farmers feed away the
profit in a lot of hogs by feeding for
too heavy weight. ,
If bran is used in making slop for
hogs add a little oil meal.
Do not trust the main crop of pigs
entirely to young sows.
The onion crop must have intelli
gent care at harvest time if they are
intended for winter storage. They
cannot be handled like potatoes and
still remain in condition for winter
use. Onions must be allowed to ripen
naturally, in which event the bulbs
will remain dormant until spring and
retain their moisture inside the peel
or skin. They must also be perfectly
cured in the sun before they go into
storage, which is best secured by
allowing the crop to remain a few
days in thin windrows after they are
dug. Do not remove the tops until
the crop goes to market. If they are
thoroughly dry and cured the tops
will so protect the onions that the dan
ger of bruising will be largely over
come: also that of heating, either of
which will greatly decrease their
value as a market product. Sheep
shears are a most valuable implement
to use when topping onions. Don't
cut too close to the bulb or it will be
injured and will "leak" while in stor
age and thus cause others to become
wet and spoil.
Onions for winter use should be
handled and stored in bushel crates
made of lath which can be piled in
such a manner as to secure perfect
ventilation: however, they will keep
in fair condition in dry quarters, when
sacked in coarse coffee sacks, such as
potato shippers use. that hold two
and one-half bushels. Don't pile
onions deeply because the mass will
be quite sure to heat and decay in a
short time. Spread thinly on a dry
floor where the damp night air can be
While gathering seeds to plant tlo
not forget the apple and plum. They
may be grown from seed in great and
interesting variety, and by so doing
contribute very largely to the work of
improving the fruits of the North. We
wish that we could also encourage the
planting of seeds of roses like the
Gen. Jac. and especially the hybrid of
Rugosa roses, which will have the pos
sibility of producing new and beauti
ful forms that are perfectly hardy in
FARMERS AT THE SHOWS.
Every farmer should attend the
fairs and poultry shows, and should
also exhibit, as any interest taken in
fairs leads to improvement of the
flocks. Many farmers are afraid to
exhibit, not knowing how to prepare
the fowls. It may require work for a
while to get the fowls in proper con
dition, but the pleasure of winning will
be ample compensation, although the
prize money is also an inducement. To
get ready for an exhibition begin
about six weeks ahead with selected
members of the flock, and twice a
week oil the legs, combs, wattles and
beaks, using a mixture of a gill of
lard oil and a teaspoonful of crude
petroleum. This will clean the legs.
Two weeks before the time for ex
hibiting feed sunflower seed three
times a week. Wash the combs, wat
tles, legs and beaks once a week and
sponge the combs and wattles with
a mixture of one part of alcohol to
two parts of water. Two days be
fore shipping the birds make a soap
suds from castile soap, and have the
suds strong and lathery. Take the
tub and birds into a room heated to
one hundred and five degrees, wash
the birds thoroughly (do not be afraid
to rub) and rinse them in another tub
ful of clean, warm water. Put the birds
in a very warm room, and as they
will puff up their feathers, on account
of the heat, each feather will dry
separately and fall into its place. If
this is not done the feathers will
stick together. Now turn them into
a cooler room so as to avoid sudden
changes. Before they start, rub comb,
wattles and legs with glycerine, which
will protect against frost. At the
show wipe off the glycerine, and
sponge the comb and wattles with j
We are glad to know that sweet clo
ver is increasing in favor, especially
in the central and southern states.
It is being found that live stock which
do not like it at first and which will
scarcely eat it unless compelled to by
hunger become fond of it after they
become accustomed to it. In consid
eration of the great power it has to
grow under poor and sandy conditions
it will certainly render very consid
erable service in sections where the
soil is poor and where in consequence
it may be difficult to grow suitable
supplies of fodder.
FILL UP VINEGAR BARRELS.
The fall of the year is a good time
to fill up empty vinegar barrels with
fresh cider for replenishing the supply
or for the market. Good cider vinegar
is always in demand and there can
be no better way of utilizing the ap
ples that are inferior in size or qual
ity than to take them to the cider
mill. Where there is any great amount
of fruit on hand it will pay to haul
them to a steam mill as the work can
be done so quickly and so much cheap
er than on a small hand press. The
rejected apples are not all fit. and
should be fed to the hogs. The great
er portion of them are but little below
second grade and by sorting out or
making a third grade or "cider apple"
pile, the sorting will require but little
extra time. There is no danger of get
ting an over-supply of vinegar on
hand and aside from racking off a
time or two there is little work in
connection with it.
Abundance of food in a liquid or
semi-liquid form is necesrary for the
TREATMENT OP GOOSEBERRIES
The best time to plant both goose
berries and currants in the middle
states is in the fall, and the earlier
the better, after the close of Septem
ber. Both of these fruits prefer a
deep, rather damp soil to any other,
and to be in a partially shaded place,
if possible. It is always possible to
shade the soil about the roots even
if but by the placing of stones there,
and this the plants show their appre
ciation of. Even the English varie
ties, with their large fruit, put up
with our hot summers when so treat
ed, which they will not do when plant
ed in a hot sunny place. In some gar
dens in our cities where but little
direct sunlight finds its way, thriving
plants of the English gooseberry and
the currant fruit on the small twigs
of previous seasons, hence it is well
to prune back some of the shoots of
every season, to induce a growth of
twiggy nature. During winter or in
very early spring this pruning should
be done. Sometimes there are to
many shoots in the center of the
bushes, and in this case it is better
to cut some clear away. 1J0 not cut
them to leave an eye or two behind,
as these eyes would break into shoots
again, making the plants even more
bushy than before. Regarding sorts,
of all the red currants tried none has
pleased me better than the Cherry,
Red Dutch and Fays. In white the
White Grape does the best in our soil.
It would seem that taste for the
black currant has to be acquired. But
few of them are planted in our coun
try, while in Europe, it leads all
others, so much of the fruit is used
in the making of preserves. In the
line of gooseberries, our native sorts
and their improved varieties have still
to be our main reliance. Of the old
sorts Downing and Houghton are mucji
grown. Downing is a green one,
Houghton red, and both, though rather
small, are -er3- productive. Both the
gooseberry and the currant are satis
factory fruits to grow. What insect
enemies they have are easily con
trolled. Although fall planting is to
be preferred, the plants do very well
set in early spring.
Fertile eggs should be gathered oft
en, as with a very little heat they
begin to incubate. A number of hens
laying in the same nest sometimes
furnish heat enough to render the first
eggs laid unfit for table use.
WHICH IS THE BEST ALL-ROUND
We are often asked which we con
sider the best general purpose fowl.
I can say to the person that wants
to keep one variety that the Barred
and White Rocks and the White and
Silver I-aced Wyandottes are in my
estimation ahead of all other varieties
as general purpose fowls. Of course
there are many other breeds, but the
above named varieties are hard to
beat, especially when they have been
bred in line for laying by selecting
only known good layers each year ana
breeding these "in line" year after
year we can be sure at least of hav
ing a strain of persistent layers.
A general purpose fowl must have a
plump carcass when dressed; a qual
ity and quantity of meat that will
meet the demands of the market, and
to be profitable they must be of a
heavy laying strain, quick to mature
and easy to raise. You should pay
particular attention to selecting and
breeding for the qualities necessary
to produce the most prolific layers, as
well as those noted for their vigor,
hardiness and standard markings.
A reader asks: Can pines be plant
ed in the fall? They cannot. There
are none of the coniferous trees which
embrace the pine, spruce, etc., that
can be planted with success in the
fall. Experience has demonstrated
that spring is the best time for this,
just as the growth starts.
KINDNESS TO SHEEP.
No animal will so quickly respond
to the kindly care and interest of its
owner as will the sheep, and you
will notice that the successful shep
herd has the fullest confidence of his
flock. Kindness pays in the handling
of any class of stock and if animals
dread the approach of the one who
takes care of them, as is sometimes
the case, then something should' be
done in the direction of securing an
The apple is not a luxury, but a
staple article of food. It fattens the
lean, cures the dyspeptic, gladdens
the heart, and makes the doctor's vis

HEAD BACK KEIFFER PEARS.
Those who are growing Keiffer
pears may find it necessary to head
them back so that the wind will not
whip off the fruit. It is a good plan
to head back to a short thick top. In
this way fruit may be gathered from
trees ten or twelve years old without
the use of a ladder.
The heading back of the peach has
always been a success. Apple trees
are disposed to grow a heavier part of
the body on the northeast side because
of the pressure of the wind bearing
against it and- leaning it away, and
for this reason one should head back
considerably on the northeast side so
as to balance the top.
Keep account of your crops and con-Kignments.
NEVER HEARD OF BEN BUTLErt.
Incident of the Rebellion Recalled by
If it had not been for history relat
ing the silverware incident of a cer
tain federal general in New Orleans
during the occupation by union troops
one of Tartown's most prominent citi
zens would not now be doing time on
the chain gang, says the New Orleans
Times-Democrat. As it is, Ben Butler
is suffering partly because of the
odium attached to his name and partly
because he followed the well-known
example of that military martinet and
drank deep of the rosy wine slightly
mixed with "coke."
"What do you think you've got to
say for yourself, Benjamin Butler?"
said Recorder .Marmouget. "Are you
the Ben Butler who took those
"Lordy, boss, dej- ain tringin' up
dat ole matter, is dey?" exclaimed Ben
with a startled look. "I done mer time
fer dat too long ergo ter talk erbout,
jedge. I onderstan'in I ben charge
wid bein' drunk, w'ich I wuz, boss, but
dem spoons am er nudder matter."
"So you did steal spoons, eh?" ex
claimed his honor. "You followed the
precepts of your distinguished name
sake and swiped the silverware. This
is where history repeats itself."
"Yasser, I did stole dem spoons,
jedge, dat were fo yeah ergo, but I
doan kno nuttin' 't all 'bout dat
yuther Ben Butler. Dat mus'er ben
some yuther case, jedge."
"Yes, I expect it was, Ben," replied
his honor, "but that does not dispose
of the drunk case, and I'll give you
ten days in the workhouse. That will
afford you time in which to read up
history and become posted on the
only and original spoon thief whose
name you bear. Take him out."
HIS EARS HAD DECEIVED HIM.
Examination Proved Boy's Mind Had
Lusty boyhood, as a usual thing,
cares little for poetry and philosophy.
But it does gaze longingly toward the
college campus whereon it may disport
its sturdy masculinity. To attain that
devoutly wished end, a modicum of
knowledge concerning writers and
thinkers whom he regards with indif
ference bordering on contempt, is de
manded of the high school boy.
How deep that knowledge goes and
how wide a difference in sense may be
given by words very like in sound, was
shown in a recent examination in Eng
lish literature. One of the questions
asked for the name of a poem by Wil
liam Wordsworth, expressing a belief
in a previous existence. That one of
the boys taking the examination had
been present in the schoolroom when
the poem was discussed and that his
ears, though not his mind, had been
open was shown to the astounded
teacher who in correcting the papers
found that he had written, not "Inti
mations of Immortality." but what
looked and sounded much like it, "Imi
tations of Immorality."
Mrs. B. Got There First.
"This," said the jeweler, "is what
happened here last month.
"Mr. B. drove up in his hansom and
entered my shop, accompanied by his
valet, who carried an oblong box of
steel. Mr. B. asked for a private in
terview and I took him into my office.
There he opened the box, exposing a
splendid array of diamond and pearl
necklaces, earrings, tiaras and stom
achers. "'Mrs. B.,' he said, 'is now abroad.
Before she returns I want you to ex
tract all these stones and to replace
them with good imitations, selling the
real jewels and giving me the money.
This, of course, is to be a confidential
transaction. Mrs. B. is to know noth
ing of it.'
"I looked at Mr. B. I think I blushed
" 'My dear sir,' I said, 'I should be
glad to do what you ask, but it is im
possible. Two years ago Mrs. B.
called here on the same errand that
now brings you. and this errand, in
her case, was successful. The paste
jewels that you offer me are worth
little more than the hire of the han
som awaiting you outside.' "
One About Ducks.
Here seems to be a nice, cool stream
for one of Frank N. Busch's duck
yarns. Mr. Eusch was up in the Fox
river country, staying at a farmer's
house. One morning the farmer held
up two live ducks in his hands and
"Ain't they fine canvas backs? Gee,
but I had to pay for 'em, too cost $4
apiece. But they are raisers. Next
year from these I'll have ducks
enough to stock a marsh."
'Canvas backs, your grandfather,"
replied Mr. Busch. "They are blue
mud hens, both of them."
"No, no. I know the man that
raised 'em; sold him the corn that he
fed to them I know."
The dispute grew thick and furious.
Mr. Busch happened to have an illus
trated book on ornithology in his
trunk. He brought it out and showed
the farmer the difference in looks.
The man of the hoe and the ducks
shook his head ruefully for a moment.
Suddenly his face brightened. He
said: "Your book sho looks like I
done been cheated; but, may be, they
done issued a later edition."
Tact in Reproof.
Advice or reproof does more harm
than good when it is so rudely or
roughly given that it brings humilia
tion or indignation. If from your real
affectionate regard for a relative you
wish to point out to her or to him an
error or correct a fault, do so as gent
ly and as cautionsly as you know how,
and do not try to correct mistakes or
point out shortcomings too often, says
the Washington Star. Give your ad
vice in private and always give less
advice than sweet, complimentary
speeches. A compliment is not less
but more relished when it comes from
a member of one's family than when
it is a tribute won from a stranger,
and these signs of appreciation that
you give of some dear one's wit, wis
dom or beauty are little home truths
that are ever affectionately remem
bered and come ever like gentle dews
to refresh the seeds of affection and
loving kindness that are planted in
