Trimming App'e Trees.
Experiences is tho rmthcr of wisdom.
There are ililljront opinions among tho
farmers nlout tho propar tinio for trim
ming iipplo tree. Tlic main object oiiRht
to lie to trim in that seaon of tho year
when the wound will entirely he.il over,
or the tree is ruined, sooner or later. If
that object is not accomplished, the water
enters and a hole i rotted into the trunk ;
nr, it becomes hollow and is destroyed.
some trim m e.iriy spring ; the wp for
ces itself out of thewound in abundance,
runs down on tho body or larger limbs;
the bark turns back and often dies, and
the trees arc permanently injured.
Another follows the opposite extreme and
prunes in August, or even in early winter,
when the sip has turned into tho wood ;
the wound does not turn black, ns in the
other case, but heals slowly, if nt all, and
a tree with holes in it is a final result. If
the bark is entirely peeled oft" the tree
from the roots to the limbs, in the longest
days of mid-summer, which are some
where from the 15th to the. 2(Sth of June,
a new bark is formed and tlio tree is not
injured, and an old tree is said to be bene
fitted by the operation. If apple trees
are pruned at this time, if any bark is ac
cidentally taken off", where the limb has
been removed ; it will entirely heal over,
if the limb removed is not too large, and
the growth is sufficient for that purpose.
The sap of the tree is not too thin to run
out and blacken the tree, as in early
spring, nor too thick and already forlned
into the wood, and the wound compara
tively dry ; both wood and bark as in later
pruning, are not-stopped in farther growth
over the wound. Many farmers, as a gen
eral thing, prune an orchard without dis
cretion, sawing otf too largo limbs, that
never can heal over, oftentimes cutting
) them off some inches from the trunk of
tne tree, or tne larger limbs irom wiiicii
they arc removed ; the stub of the limb
will die to the tody and the further decay
of the tree is sure.
In pruning off too much, the natural
equilibrium between the roots and tho top
is destroyed, and the body ot the tree will
come out in suckers or sprouts. Such
ignorant primers had better cut their
trees down and trim them afterward,
which is easier done, and with more profit
to themselves, as the ground could be em
ployed for some better purpose. If a
limb is dead there is no option ; it mut
be cut off close to the tree ; the only liv
ing limbs that should bo cut off arc the
small ones that will heal overcoming
from the larger branches in tho inside of
the top (and those that cross and gall
each other,) thereby letting in more sun
to the apples to give them a better color
and give the picker a better chance in the
tree. Evervthim: beyond this is super
fluous, and pruning hail better be dis
pensed with altogether. Many fine or
chards receive their death warrants from
such ill pruning every year. N. II. Pa
triot. Rei Apples.
The buyers all want red apples. They
say they sell the best. This fancy for
color has given Baldwins a boom, as they
are red and handle and ship well. There
is another advantage for the fruit tho
ti ee is hardy and a constant bearer. I do
not like the apple to cat but on account
of its market value, the hardness of the
tree, and its btrong bearing propensity, in
an orchard of 100 trees I would plant 75
Baldwins. Too many varieties of fruit
are a nuisance. They make an endless
amount of work, and many kinds, while
thev have a value for home use, are un
suited for keeping or shipping. They do
not pay. Tho Eiopus fapitzenburg, I
think, is tho daintest flavored applo that
grows. My mother would have no other
for her mince pies and company apple
saucethis had to to extra nice you
know but since the country has liccome
so open, exposed to the cold winds, the
trees winter-kill. Tho Spitzenburg
wants protection and a virgin soil. The
latter requirement can be made up in part
by the use of ashes, and tho former by
planting wind breaks of evergreens. I
treated a stunted Famcuso applo tree
twenty years ago with a wheelbarrow load
of leached ashes, and that tree shows tho
benefit of it to this day. Somehow we
all like the kinds of apples wo used to eat
when we were voung, and so Rhode Itland

still have a place in our hearts and in my
orchaid. '1 hey bring to mind tho times
when neightors used to "come over and
spend the evening "those old-fashioned,
informal visits, in which apples filled an

Buy Small Trees.
The averago American is in a great
- hurry to realize on his investments. Thw
tendency crops out very plainly when he
purchases trees. He finds them described
as "second-class," "medium," "fin-t-class,"
and "extra." Tho differences in theso
claaees is principally, if not wholly, in the
size and height of the trees. Tlio larger
the tree tho higher the price j but the far
mer "don't care anything about that."
He wants good trees or none, and gives
his order for thosoof extra size, and winch
are four or five vcars old. In doing this
he thinks that he U acting wisely, hut tho
nurseryman knows and the farmer will
find before long that, with equal care, the
small tree will grow faster and (if a fruit
tree) como in tho bearing condition sooner
than the large one.
In half a dozen years tho tree that was
small wiien planted will be larccr and
liner than the other. The reason for this
is obvious. The larger the tree the larger
uiu iuuu tvnmii n nag, and tlio larger the
roots the le-s fibres there will to upon
them. A tree that has (plenty of fibrous
roots will grow readily if proper care is
used in transplanting ; but no amount of
skiu can coax a tree to live and flourish
which is destitute of these little fibres.
The roots of large trees are always more
or les mutilated in the process of taking
up, while the small trees sustain little in
jury irom tins source. Dealers in trees
assert that experienced men buy small,
thrifty trees, while those who lire jut
starting are anxious for the largest to to
had. Those who are to set trees the com
ing season will do well to learm from the
experience of thoo who, at considerable
loss to themselves, have demonstrated that
small trees are the ones to buy. Xew
England Homestead.
It is not possible to givo tho strawtorry
patch too much water, provided always
that the land is so well drained as to give
the water free escape. This is true of
nearly all farm crops, though barley is
more sensitive to excess of water than any
other small grain. Corn is injured by
excessive moisture, but it is more from
chilling the soil than from the effects of
water itself.
Farmers should experiment with all
kinds of fertilizers within their reach.
Quito often there is found on some farms
muck that can be prontably drawn to land
adjoining or on tho near neighborhood.
The quality of muck varies so widely
that lack of success with it in any place
is no evidence that other muck will fail
elsewhere. The tost muck contains lime
and phosphoric acid.
Wherever wood ashes can to had an
excellent fertilizer may to made by any
farmer. Let him purchase pure ground
bone ; mux with its weight of nshes and
saturate with water. The alkali in the
ashes takes hold of tho crease in the
bones, and the mixture is a valuable one
for any grain crop. When dried with fine
ground gypsum it can be drilled m with
the seed.
The evidence recently supplied by the
Scottish Chamber of Agriculture asserts
that the effect of lime is most durable on
pastures that are grazed. It lasts longer
upon good than upon bad land, and
longer ujxm clays and light land than on
light land. A good dressing of lime lasts
for a number of years. Except on old,
mossy land, lime is best used upon grass
land in the form of compost.
Gypsum, charcoal and lime are some
times added to manure heaps with the
view of fixing their ammonia ; but where
the management of the manure is other
wise good, these are not much required.
Chalk and lime are found to have a very
good effect in preventing the escape of
ammonia from farm yard manure, pro
vided it is fresh manure. Applied to rot
ten manure cautic lime causes a great
loss of ammonia.
Tho cultivation of apples is growing
into immense proportions in Arkansas.
The crop grown in Bentoe county this
year amounted to about 2,000,000 bush
els, nearly the whole of which wa ; dried
and thus shiptod in barrels, because there
are no convenient railroad facilities there
to enable growers to ship the green fruit.
Drying kilns were put in operation in the
orchars where the fruit was grown, one
concern having facilities for (hying one
thousand bushels a day. A Xew York
firm has permanently located in Benton
county and engaged in drying apples, the
barrels in which they aie packed being
branded Rochester, N. Y. The fruit is
shipped to Europe.
Many complain that their tomatoes
are sour. All tomatoes are sour, n we
may judge from our own observation,
that are grown in rich soil. e want a
maximum of fruit and a minimum of
leaves and steins, if we would have sweet
tomatoes by which is meant not sweet
literally, but less acidity. Tomatoes raised
in light rather jwor soil, in a sheltered or
warn situation, arc always sweet in favor
able seasons, whilo those raised in rich soil
or in partial shades are always sour. A
rank growth of foliage shades tho fruit
densely and interferes with the develop
ment of tho saccharine principle.
An English agricultural paper, London
Farm and Homo, recently declared that
"tho reason why such numbcrsof farmers'
sons in America abandon farming is en
tirely owing to the extreme severity of
the toil they havo to undergo when on
the farm. The American farmer is a very
hard task-master, and as a rule tho sons
dislike tho laborious occupation at home,
which they leave to go in search of 'some
thing lighter.' American farming has
lecn developed not so much by native
Imrn farmer.-, as by the millions who have
gone there to bottle during the last 10 or
20 years."
As to the immediate future of wheat,
the low range of prices prevents British
India from being as great a competitor as
last vear, navigation in Northern Russia
is closed, tho fall sowing wheat of England
has been delayed by floods, and our farm
ers generally are in totter condition for
holding their crops, whilo tho present low
prices tends to increase tho demand over
tho civilized world,
It is estimated that tho wholo produc
tion of sugar grown in tho world
amounts to atout 3,700,000 tons a year.
Of this atout 1,500,000 tous arc manufac
tured in Europe from the beet. China,
India, Egypt and tho Islands of tho
Southern Pacific produco about 700,000
tons; Cuba, 000,000; Brazil. 200,000;

generally dying from neglect soon after
planting. They require a deep, good noil,
nmnnrativelv moist, stiff and clayey

vated. For the first three or four years
they demand good attention, after which
time that ordinarily given to other fruit
trees will suffice. They should to pruned

The canned fruit product of California
has largely increased since the last de
cade. The product of 1875 aggregated in
value about .f 500,000. In 1880, f 1500,000,
and in 1882 tho product is set down with
a value equal to .$2,000,000. For the
futnro wo have every reason to believe
that the rate of increase will be even
greater than for the past. And there is
110 question but that California is des
tined to become the largest and finest
fruit-producing country in tho world.
The great curse of the American farmer
is too much land. In trying to spread
over too much ground he is compelled to
do things by halves and only gets half
returns. Une acre of land that produces
four tons of hay is better w orth $,100 than
ten acres that produces a like quantity is
worth $25 an acre. The cow that averages
two pounds of butter a day is totter worth
$200 than is the cow that only makes one
pound a day is worth $20.
Mr. Morton, of Tularo City, has tried
nn experiment with a new sort of grass,
which he affirms will to the coming grass
of that section of country. It resembles in
some resects the bunch grass on the salt
marshes on the sea coast, and at first sight
it docs not look as though it would to very
palatable. It grows in huge bunches
from six to ten feet high, and produces
over three tons of first-class hay to the
acre, btock are very fontl of the grass,
and it is better for them than any other
grass of which Mr. Morton has ac
knowledge. Unlike other grasses the roots
may to utilized to fatten hoes and vield
enormously, as much as 3,000 bushels to
the acre. Hogs cat the roots eagerly, and
may to turned into a field before and
after the hay is cut to root and fatten.
The farmers of Missouri may to Grati
fied to learn that of fourteen Congress
men from that state they have elected
thirteen lawyers, not ono of whom could
have been chosen without their votes.
Tho election of tho fourteenth is as yet in
dispute, but no matter which of the two
disputants may to declared elected, the
one successful will bo a lawyer, or a manu
facturer of patent medicines a doctor.
Three-fourths of tho voters of Missouri
are farmers and not a single representa
tive of their class in Congress.
Three-quarters of the highest-priced
butter in New York and England to-day
is made from Jersey cows ; it brings from
40 to 80 cents per pound, and the demand
is greater than the supply. The greater
part of tho butter dealers to not handle
this, and it is not known in the newspa
per market reports. As a rule it goes
once or twico a week direct from the
dairy where it is made to the house or
club, or hotel in which it is eaten. It has
less than one-quarter of an ounce of salt
to tho pound, and thus none of tho
aromatic odors are lost.
Above all. however, a farmer should be
free from debt. If he wishes to bind a
millstone round his neck, to sink him be
yond tho possibility of hope or rescue, to
keep him constantly restless, and strug
gling for subsistence if not for existence,
let him keep in debt ; if ho would to able
to call what he has his own, and breathe
tho air of a freeman, let him religiously
eschew debts. I would almost go so far
as to say that nothing excepting the pur
chase of land can justify a farmer in con
tracting a debt ; and tofore he sells him
self for more land he will do well to in
quire whether he has capital to work it
profitably, and whether what ho now has
is brought to the propcrdegrec of fertility.
The Texas State Grange, at its annual

derful resources, the attention of enteiprising
men has of late been largely diteo'ed. The
nearer completion of the Northern Pacific
Railroad, then bringing a liithuto isolated
region into direct ccirimunieation with the
east, has increaiel this interest to a ten-fold
decree. The form of the lat discovered and

iUsalulrinus air, its undeveloped resources
ant wonderful possibilities have surposed a
mere local reputtti n and now floods of letters
from nearly every Sti to of the American
Union and from Canada are daily received.
It is in answer to tome of the mostimportmt
of these inquiries that the following brief
and necessarily imperfect sketch las been

this nbvions. The track of the rai'road runs
alonj a nirr.iw rocky ledgs which forms a
natural road bed ; in few places does the beat
lmd comedown to the track of the road.
But only a short distance on either tide and
we reach a bouodlet s realm of tbe choicest
wheat land. To tbe south lies the famous
Palouse country of astonishing fertility, free
from rock, well watered and armewhat rolling.
To the wot and north stretches for nearly 100
miles the famous Big Beud country, equally
fertile with the P-louie and not o Idly, while

Soil. The soil for tbe moat put is a dark

soil which deserve mention i First its re
markable capacity to resist drouth j second,
its seeming incapability of exhaustion. In
Minnesota, oh-ro the virgin soil two years
ago produced thirty bushels of wheat, it is
now difficult to poduce ten lushels. The

Products. Tho whole region is covered
with a rich growth of bunch grass which cures
itself nnd which fattens cattle better than the
blue grass of Kentucky or corn of Illinois. It
has become a proverb that where bunch crass
grows wheat will. There is no better stock
country w hether for horses, cattle or sheep,
than Eiatcrn Washington : hut its chief celeb
rity is a w heat country. The pr deletion of
wneat is simply marvelous. Wheat averages
thirty-five and forty luuhels to the acrr, while
crops ot sixty and seventy uushcis are not

portions 1 10 bushels to the acre. Pi tatoes
and garden vegetables of the finest quality art
lavishly produced and no country ain produce
better apples Pears, plumi, peaches and
cherries are successfully raised, and this eems
the natural home of the small fruit. In favor
able locations timothy produces three tons to
the acre.
Climate. The climate is by no means so
severe as the latitude would suggest. Like
the eutiro Pacific Coast it is modified by the
warm Jpan current which bathes the west
ern coitt. In the spring, summer and au
tumn the climate is delightful, the niuhts are
always cool, and although in winter the trier
cuary sometimes for a tew days take a low
range, we nave no dreadful storms as on th
western prairies. The colder it is the less air
there is in circulation. On winter morning',
when the cold is most intense, the smoke from
a hundred chimneys may be seen rising fifty
feet in tho air as straight as an arrow. Then
are no ice-laden, death-dealing " blizzards,"
as in Nebraska and Kansas ; no northeasters,
as in Texas ; nor California sand storms.

speak of the value of the timber which would
be in itself a small fortune when the timber

therefore I cannot tell the price of railroad
