IN THE COUTH.
The Generation and Growth of tlio Long
DennAU Sot-ninoi Xnws. I
Crack ! crash 1 and a heavy nnd pe
culiar jarring ill ud upon tlio onrtli, arc
sounds familiar to tlio oars of dwellers
in tliu long leaf pino forest.. They nro
tlio founds of the fall of the inagnifl
cant tree?, ns they fall honeath the
slroko of the woodman's axe. As wo
hoar those pounds ami see growths of
many long years falling to tlio bosom j
of Mollt'T Earth, Iho question comes i
up, Is Nature doing anything to ro- j
place tins rapid lossr Whence uamo
tli j first sods from which these valua
ble ticoa sprung? And do Ihoy boar
anything upon themselves toroproduco
their kind? Ono question must bo
left unanswered. No nun knows
whenco came the seed from which
hnve snrunk' tho original pines. The j
other questions may bj answeicd.
Natuio is at work to recover the rapid
lois of tho grown pines, and these pinos
do boar itpnn llr-niselvcs ilia seeds to
reproduce pines. Let us study these
facia or works of Nature, and wo shall
find that she is giving us lessons of in
tercut and insluetioii.
If all vegetation dropped its leaves in
r.iitumu, iivcry largo part of the earth's
Mirfaco would bo bare and brown,
through the long winter months. Hut
Naluro h.ia given us tho evergreens;
fresh and livingovidencc of her lifo and
vitality during the apparently dead
montlu of winter. Tlio largest family
of these evergreens aio tho cone bear
ers; and in this family, tlio long leafed
pino bears tho largest cono. Thoso
cones are as much an ornament to tho
tree as a rose bloom to tho shrub; and
exist for tho same purpose; viz, to boar
tho KK'ds or mast as they are called by
the people living among tho pines.
Once in two years theso cones mature,
mid bear nakod heed in the axil of their
long, hard and paddle shaped to puis.
TIium! seals arc partially winged; ho
that tho breezes which make tho
"so(i 'liing of tho pines" through their j
gently swaying brunches, bear tho .seed
in all directions and often to great dis
tances?. Homo of these teed fall in
good places and germinate. And now
wo find Nature doing her best to re
place tho losa of her sturdy children;
tho century old trees which tho wood
man is jelling, in order that tho build
ings of our northern town.s and cities
may hsfvo hard pine floors and beauti
ful interior finish
To thoso who are not familiar with
tho young white or young yellow
pinos of the North, a young long loaf
pine proiints a now and beautiful
upp nm:iw, I'loiBO think of a small
feather duster turned handle down;
notice how the feathers droop and turn
outwards from tho con lor or o:id of
tho handle, in a graceful circular bunch.
When tho young long loaf pino fust
appears ithovo tho ground, only a
bunch of given needles is seen. Boon
that hunch is larger; tho whole length I
is above groud,and tho needles droop I

hiineh. liko the feat herd in vonr dnslor. ! ant. and to oiler evidence in rebuttal of
Jnsidc ot lliisgroou, urn shaped bunch
una ait liio imtioin is tlio inul or grow-
ing point. It is a flattened cono at!
filet, afterwards biicoming longer.
This is tho growing point of tho tree, j
and is found at the end (if every twig!
or bran.:h on the tree, and at all periods .
of i;.; g.M'.vih. On a largo tree thcao j
growing points become a pointed conn,
