Doctoring old Orchards.
Circumstances alone determine
whether it is or is not adviseable
and desirable to plow old orcliards
of the apple and pear, an no fixed
rule can be given which wdl afford
uniformily satisfactory results. The
nature and quality of the soil, as well
as the location of the orchard, has
much to do in determining the ques
tion, while the kind of sod, the length
of time it-lias remained unturned, aud
the way the trees have been handled
are important points to consider.
Some years ago the writer pur
chased a farm, on which there was
an old apple orchard of some sixty
large trees, many of which were ap
parently beyond the period of use
fulness. The orchard had been left
in grass for some eight or ten years,
the hay having been taken off as long
as it paid to cut it and nothing put
on to replace the amount of fertiliz
ing matter thus mooved annually.
As soon as I took possession of the
farm, I trimmed the trees severely,
scraped off all the loose bark on the
trunks and treated these coats to a
coat of diluted soft soap, applied with
a whitawash brush. This was doce
early in the Spring, and as soon as
the ground was fit for plowing I had
the orchard plowed thoroughly,
grubbing around the trees where the
plow could not go.
A coat of well-rotted manure was
then spread on, and the land thor
oughly harrowed. The first season,
ordinary field corn was planted, -and
a very lair crop obtained, consider
ing the shade. The apple crop, this
year, was a very good on, and said
to be the best one the orchard had
borne for several years. The second
year vegetables hoed crops were
put in with a liberal amount'of well
rolted manure, and the result was
not only a good crop of vegetables,
but an unusually large yield of ap
ples on most of the trees. I culti
vated the orchard for three success
ive years, then seeded to clover and
clover alone, keeping this in two
years and then again resorting to a
three years' course of cultivation.
I have seen th's plan successfully
tried with numerous orchards since,
and do not know of a single failure.
An old apple orchard is a capital
place for a pig run or enclosure, and
especially so where the sod is veteran
and tough, for the pigs, in search of
roots, will soon turn up the stubborn
sod, and ere long, convert the entire
orchard into a broken field. This
method of treating an old orchard,
preparatory to plowing it properly
the following season for a crop, has
some ad vant ages, prominent amongst
which is that a good coat of manure
is put on the ground by the pigs,
during the season materially adds
to the fruitfulness of the tree. Such
manure, from corn fed porkers, is
equally as good as stable manure.
D. Z. Evans, Jr., in Farmers Magazine.
B. F. Carroll writes the Texas Far
mer as follows:
My big colony is still making
some honey, and I may reach 8C0 lbs.
before the close of the fall harvest.
This and next month are the most
critical with bee keepers, on account
of moth. They have attacked- the
black bees around ms and are doing
much damage. I have not seen one
in tny 110 hives yet; in fact the Ital
ians, Syrians and Cyprians are very
near moth proof. Well 1 guess you
would like to know my plan of de
stroying the moth in box hives.
Perhaps this may be hard to do, but
it can be done very effectually by
drumming out all the bees in a small
box a la transferring, and set old
hive over a brimstone match and
thoroughly fumigate .it. After tak
ing off. the brimstone pit, let it air
about two months and return your
bees; clear the bottom of hive and
use plenty wood ashes and fine salt)
this will assist to keep away the
moth as the alkali will destroy not
only the egg of the moth, but will
destroy the larvae also and will keep
away ants; but, friends, with a good
movable comb hive in reach of every
one, that without having to pay a
nickle for a patent right to use (and
if a man comes around wanting to
tell you a patent hive, set your dog
on him) the old Langstroth, Root -
Simplicity, and the Van Dusen Nellis
simplicity hives are of the old stand
ard Langstroth, fame and are easily
and cheaply made, especially the
latter; you need not fear the moths,
for you have perfect control over
your bees, as mnch so as you would
over a pen of pigs. In cutting out
honey from box hives use plenty of
corn meal to soak up the leaking
honey and wood ashes on the floor
and this will greatly lessen the rav
ages of that terrible pest to apicul
ture. A Case of Petrifaction.
Record-TTni67i says: C. Clinch
twenty-one years ago buried at Fol
som a child that died at the age of
3 years. The little girl's body was
placed in a coffin that was inclosed
in zinc and hermetically sealed, and
that in turn placed in the ordinary
wooden grave box. The grave was
dug in high and very dry ground.
Yesterday Mrs. Clinch and her
daughter went to Folsom to disinter
the body and bring it to Sacramento
to be placed in the family cemetry
lot here. They expected to find on
ly a few bones, and took with them
a proper box in which to place them.
Their surprise can be imagined when
they found that the coffin, from
which the grave box had rotted
away, was exceedingly heavy at
least three or four times as heavy as
when placed in tf.e grave, One
small hole had rusted through the
zinc. The metal was cut and the
coffin opened, and the body found to
be completely petrified. The child
lay before the mother as natural in
form and feature as when she con
signed it to the grave twenty-one
years ago. The features were per
fect and the face, arms and hands of
alabaster whiteness. After exposure
to the air a 6hort time this perfect
whiteness changed to a light yel
lowish or tint with a shade of brown.
The body was solid stone and to the
blow of metal gave response as
would marble. Tue clothing was
petrified likewise, and the boquet of
flowers upon the child's bosom, and
a little doll that had been placed in
the hollow of one arm was also turned
to stone, as was the hair also, and
indeed everything in the coffin and
about the body. Large numbers of
people viewed the body at Folsom,
and the unanimous judgment was
that a more perfect specimen of pet
rifaction they had never seen.
Save the Oood Brood Bows.
Corn is high, pork is high. It
costs much more to winter a full
grown sow than it does a spring pig.
The old sow, if she has reared a
litter of pigs, probably is not so at
tractive looking as are the best of
her sow pigs. All these things may
tempt one to fatten the sow and keep
one of the pigs for breeding purposes
To all contemplating this course we
feel like giving Punch's celebrated
advise to those contemplating matri
mony. This was summed up in the
one word, "don't."
As a rule with few exceptions a
matured sow will rear more, stronger
and better pigs than will an unma
tured one. In case a sow shall have
proved herself undesirable, there is
no question that she should be
slaughtered; but if her past perfor
mance has been satisfactory, the fact
that she is two years old is not a
sufficient reason for sending her to
the butcher. Some of the best brood
sows A'e have known have been in
active service until they were half a
dozen years old in some cases even
Persistence in the custom of breed
ing from young and immature pa
rents can hardly fail to tend to
weaken the constitutions of the stock.
It may tend to further develop ear
ly maturity, but this may be gaiped
at too great a cost. lireeclers Gazette.
Facts About Sheep.
The sheep is to be considered' as a
producer of wool and meat. On the
plains of the far off South and West,
where there are no markets for mut
ton, wool of the hardy Merino will
be most profitable to the producer.
In the densely populated States, and
in all places within easy reach of
great markets, mutton will be the
leading consideration. The people
of our cities are fast learning to like
good mutton, and sheep having a
dash of Coiswold or Southdown
blood upon a Merino basis, make
very desirable food when properly
prepared for market. Early lambs
are in great demand, and grade wool
from such sheep is called for by our
manufacturers. The low prices of
wool are fast driving all the owners
of high-priced land out of its pro
duction, but mutton may profitably
be raised in connection with wool
and certain other branches of farm
ing as has been shown in England
and other countries. Some very val
uable flocks of Merinos are still pre
served with sreat care by breeders
in the Eastern States, to supply rams
and some ewes to improve the great
flocks of the. far off and low-priced
lands of the new States. It would
bedifficul and very expensive work
to form large floeks of pure-blooded
mutton sheep. But rams can be
readily purchased which, crossed upj
on common, or, better still, upon
trade ewes, will soon produce valu
able sheep, belter suited to the
tastes of our people than the flesh of
the large breeds of sheep so much
approved by the English strong
stomached laborer. Our people have
not learned how to use with profit
or pleasure the two or more inches
of thick fat that often covers the ribs
of thoroughbred Leicester or Cots
wold well fatted wethers. Our peo
ple like the smaller Southdown bet
ter, bat he does not, when pure in
breeding, give a satisfactory fleece
of wool, and his tendency to put on
fat will bear toning down by a cross
of Merino blood that will help his
fleece. I know that the idea of suc
cessfully mingling and combining
the good qualities of such breeds as
Merino, Cotswold and Southdown is
not believed in by many high au
thorities. But when as great skill
and as many years have been given
to this object as Bakewell and Ham
mond have to their work, I confi
dently believe that a new family of
sheep will be produced, having more
real value than any now known for
the temperate and genial climates
found along and each side the forty
second degree of latitude, from the
Atlantic Ocean to the Rocky Moun
tains. The trial is now going on,ou
our own farms. A flock of Merino
ewes were bred to a Cotswold ram.
To the ewe Iambs we propose to
put South Down rams, and from this
last cross select such as appear to
combine the desired qualities. The
future must decide how the stock
should be managed after the first
mingling of these three breeds. It
must be admitted that material for
a most valuable breed will be in the
flock, and the only question as to
the practicability of preserving and
combining their desirable qualities
in proper proportions. If a tendency
to revert to any of the three original
breed appears too decidedly, it will
be easy to make a new cross from
one or both of the others to correct
the tendency. New York Tribune.

"Pride of ancestry is a good thing.
A young man has a right to be
proud of a noble father, but the dan
ger is that he generally leans on him
too strong and don't do anything for
himself." So says the Elmyra Hus
bandman. This was gruffly illus
trated in the comment of a sturdy
old farmer upon the sons of one of
his acquaintances. It occurred on a
local railway train passing through
a fine region of country. One of the
passengers was making a spectacle of
himself after too free a use of liquor
in the town he had been visiting.
In response to an inquiry as to who
the intoxicated one was. The old
farmer answered. "He is old John
Blank's son. He has six boys, that
is the only one of them worth a con
tinental cent, and he is not worth
more than half a cent." Thi- re
mark may be truthfully applied to
many a man of worthy ancestry to
many a noble farmer's son, and the
sons of many professional or mer
chant men in the towns and large
cities. When theyoung farmer takes
more pleasure in visiting the towns,

store, where strong drink is to be
bad, at times when there is nothing
Shorthorns for Dairy.
For many years the breeders of
shorthorn cattle have devoted their
entire energies to the breeding
of animals, matchless in form and
symmetry of proportions, and the
result produced a class of animala
well nigh approaching perfection in
the points aimed to be attained.
This high state of excellence has been
attained at the utter sacrifice of dairy
qualities which have been entirely
ignored. In the earlier years of thi
industry this was an item of far less
importance in a business point of
view than at present. At that timet
there was a broad field for the com
paratively few breeders, aud which
taxed their energies to the utmost,
to meet the demand for stock from
those who were entering into the
Of late years, however, a diffsrent
class of purchasers has sprung upr
those who have gone to work to im
prove the native stock of the country,
and who have a laudable ambition
to place a higher class of animals in
the markets than the common "na
tives." The dairy also has become a fix
ture in almost every township in the
state, but an uncertain tenture in
only isolated places. The dairy in
terest has become to be lightly re
garded as the mucleus of the stock,
growing business in a general way
until the present time there is ne
class of cattle in the land suitable for
dairy purposes, but they must be
gathered up promiscuously from the
"scrub" stock which the country
affords with a great amount of un
certainty usually attending the pur
chase of each animal, as to whether
she vv-HI prove of any great value in
It is a well established fact that
among Shorthorns there is so often
a strain of blood which is certain to
develop good milkers, but usually
this tendency has developed in ani
mals of "plain breeding," and as pro
fessional breeders have been work
ing in an entirely different field, bat
minor importance has been attached
to this quality, and but little or ne
pains taken to breed a lino of milk
ers that could be relied on to a cer
tainity, and at the same time their
progeny be what the ambitious stock
grower would desire to rear for
The fact that the lordly Shorthorn
stand without a peer as a beef pro
ducing slock stands well founded.
The further fact that among them,
there is an occasional fine milker, is
equally well founded, as well as the
additional fact that no well directed
efforts are known to have been made,
to "fix" this milk producing quality
as an established trait that will be
transmitted to the oft-spring with
the same unerring certainty that the
beautiful outline of form and majestic
size ar held and improved upon
from one generation to another,
where care is taken in the breeding.
The dairy is a fixed industry inth
northern prairie states, and its im
portance is each succeeding year se
curing a better recognition in almost
every prosperous community. Al
ready the demand for what may be
technically termed "dairy cows,'
whose progeny shall be such as to
fill the demand for beef stock, is the
most urgent one existing among ad
vanced agriculturists. The attain
ment of this desired result can only
be reached by an earnest endeavor
on the part of breeders in that di
rection, and must be slow to appear.
To the writer this seems to be the
mos desirable field now ready for the
breeders to occupy. When Short
horn breeders shall take the same
pride in the performances of their
favorites at the milking pail as the
breeders of Jerseys and Holsteine
now do, and work as hard to reach
such results, but little doubt exista
that their labor will be crowned
with the production of the large,
well developed dairy cow, whose
offsprings will oe equally famous for
lifting the beam at a heavy weight
when matuied for the market. JL
