Cultivating in an Orchard.
Young fruit trees greatly need to
bave the soil about them cultivated.
In working about trees, however, the
whlffletree is almost sure to bruise the
bark, sometimes quite spoiling the tree,
unless the greatest care Is exercised.
The cut shows a neat little device for
avoiding this difficulty. A bit of old
trace is tied to the whlffletree and car-
rier about its end, as shown. It Is then
tied to the trace, when it will prevent
the whlffletree iron or wood from bruis
ing the bark of any tree It happens to
strike. The importance of preventing
Injury to young trees is recognized by
but few. If badly hurt, the tree never
Harnesses to Fit Horses.
Whenever a horse is sold the harness
In which it has been used to working
ought always to go with the bargain.
No two harnesses were ever made to
Bt alike, and especially where the pres
lure comes on the shoulder or neck In
Srawing. The skin under the old har
ness has been gradually toughened by
pressure on one spot But with the new
harness the pressure is shifted, it may
be only an inch or two, but It comes
trhere the skin Is tender and will quick
ly break when exposed to the collar.
If the whole harness cannot go, be at
least sure to Becure the collar with any
new horse purchased, so that the ani
mal can work without being tortured.
The collar once used for one horse
never ought to be used for another.
Hnnse for Winter.
The cut shows a method of securing
great warmth In a house that can be
used either for poultry or for the stor
age of fruit in winter. An excavation
is made In a side-bill, as shown in the
first picture. A stone foundation wall
Is then laid and the house shown in the
second illustration erected. Not a great
amount of excavating is required, as
the earth that is thrown out helps build
up the bank that is to protect the house
on all sides. A drain laid below the
foundation, and brought around to the
south entrance, will take care of the
water that comes down from the higher
Pigs farrowed during Soptember will
got a good start before winter. Late
pigs are liable to be checked by severe
cold.' The most profitable pigs, how
ever, are those farrowed in the spring
and slaughtered late In the fall, as
they need not be kept over winter.
Farmers do no now give much atten
tion to raising pigs farrowed In the fall
unless they are patrons of a creamery
and have an abundance of material for
feeding, which only the pigs will con
sume. " ' ' : .i ; .; ;.' f

? Tie Handy Wheelbarrow.
The wheelbarrow Is very useful
about the stable and garden. tFor
wheeling out manure from the stables
the canal barrow, with flaring side
boards, Is best, as the manure can be
dumped from either side. For the gar-
den, the barrow with moveable aide
boards is the most convenient. In buy
ing a barrow, select one with a large
wheel and with a high front board. A
wide tire is also to be preferred; a
wide-tired barrow can be wheeled over
soft ground; a narrow one would cut
so deeply as to be almost impossible to
move. A canal barrow can be had fof
$2.50, and a good garden barrow will
cost from $3.50 to ?4. A strong, well
made barrow, that Is carefully built
and nicely painted, will answer every
purpose, and if carefully housed when

will pay to buy a good one at the start.

Mrs. John Tafisey, of 180 Baker

women who always know just what to

that is mother to those in distress. To
a reporter she said:
