by budding
, It will bo quite in place to describe
?ere bow, in France, tbey propagate
, heir groves of grafted trees, which is
the same mode as first employed with
the Mayette. Franquette and (Jhaberte
ever sinoe these varieties were origi
nated over 100 years ago. The very
first thing they ao is to secure
"mother" trees of the kind they de
sire to propagate by grafting, so as to
have large roots to give them, by
pruning them back every year, tbe
budding wood of the proper size they
will need when ready to do their bud
ding. Then they plant seedling trees,
generally grown by them, but which
are also obtainable in nurseries, with
tbe tap root severely cut back, to make
them grow lateral roots, the very Jife
of tbe tree ; and they do not under
take to bud before tbe trees are of the
proper size, any not lees than six in
ches in diameter, as nothing, I repeat
It, is gained by being too hasty in
budding or grafting walnut trees.
The trees to be top-budded are first
cut back ijefore spring, only a few
side limbs, to be subsequently out off,
being left to shade tbe trunk and as a
valve for tbe escape of the rising sap;
this prunlugback causes the throwing
out of young and vigorous Bhoots.
Such shoots are also produoed where
branches havo been out back for graft
lng, and when the graft fails to grow,
tbey may be utilized for bnddlng.
Quito a number of shoots, after tbe
top is out back, will start around tbe
remaining stumps, but after baring
become woody enough, a certain mini
ber only, tbe straightest and nicest
ones, are allowed to stay, all other be
ing removed. When ready to bud, say
from July to August, rings of bark
containing a bud are. on tbe preced
lng night, and at a table in the house,
taken from the solons, the best ones
being those right at the base and
wheie the wood is perfectly round
(Indeed, they are tbe only ones fit to
be nsed), being very careful in remov
ing the ring of hark not to bruise in
any manner the coroulo, which cor
responds exactly with tbe eye proper,
otherwise the budding would be blind.
Tbe rings of bark on the scions, which
are wrapped up in a wet cloth till next
day's operation, thus saving much
time and rendering more perfeot the
removing of tbe rings of bark. The
larger the shoots, the hotter. Tbe
ring of bark to be inserted is applien
on a portion of the shoot woll spaced
between two buds, but as near the
base as possible, and tbe kuife run
horizontally above it, and a vertloal
cut made back of it, the ring of bark
being then taken from the stock and
the one containing a bud being in
serted in its place. It la a very sim
ple operation that every Htell'ignnt
person can perform without the id
of a skillful grafter, if the ring of
bark inserted is too small to reach all
around the stock, a strip of bark is
left on the latter; in that case it tuny
be oalled plute, instoad of ring bud
ding. If the shoots so budded are ol
the proper size, and above all the
riugs of adroitly removed from
the scions, five buds out of six should
succeed. It is more safe if shoots are
too lung and too heavy, and so as to
Prevent accidents, to out thorn buck
o two or three feet. The ensuing
spring the shoots are out back right
above the budding and the out waxed.
Whea th(j;iiid grows up too rank, it
may be tied to a stake, itsulf tied to
the stnmp, to prevent breaking oft as
is often the oase ; the same with gruf ts.
King budding and budding by ap
proach may bo regarded as the very
strongest ways of propagating by bud
ding or grafting the walnut; no dan
ger of the grafting bieaking olf after
wards under the weight of the nuts
or from other (muxes not so with cleft
grafting. Felix Ulllet in I'aoillo Ku
ral Truss.
For Prevention of Scub.
The Vermont Experiment Station
bus been quite successful in treating
seed potatoes with formaldehyde gas
for the prevention of soab. For
those who plant potatoes on a largo
scale the gas method is more conveni
ent than dipping the seed potatoes in
a dilute solution nf formaldehyde.
The gus treutmoot requires a room or
Ida wliioh can be closed up tightly.
Tun outices of formalin are needed fur
every 100 cubic fuet ot space in the
room. The gas is generated by mix
ing in an earthurn jar formalin and
potassium permanganate iu the pro
portions of eight parts of formalin to
three parts of permanganate. The
jar should have a capacity of about a
gallon for each plut of.formallu used,
i'he permaugauate is placed in the jar
and the formalin poured over it , after
which the person who does this gets
out of the room as soon as possible
closing the door tightly after htm.
Tbe room should remain closed for 24
Hints ou Pruning Trees.
When the objoot of pruning is to re
move superfluous branches, the proper
time to trim is when the tree needs
trimming. Pay no attention to tbe
month, season or moon, but if a
branch needs cutting off, out it off at
once without fear of injuring the tree.
You will do the tree uo more injury
at one season than at another.
If you want a tree to seud out new
limbs in order to (ill a vacant space or
to alter the shape of tbe tree, trim
jast as the leaf buds are beginning to
swell in the spring. It a tree has a
habit of blossoming profusely, but
not bearing a corresponding amount
of fruit, trim just as the blossoms be
gin to make their appearance. 1( a
tree has a vigorous growth of foliage,
but liears little or no fruit and but
few blossoms trim severoly just as the
leaves have attained their full size.
It you do not want uew branches or
suckers to start trim iu August or
early September. If you want to plan
your work so as to do it to tbe bust
advantage, and to do the most work
in a given time, do your trimming in
the fall when tbe trees are bare of
leaves and the weather is not too cold.
It you wait until spring the bark
will be loose and you will run a good
risk of making abrasions which may
injure the tree.
Raspberry and blackberry bushes
should be trimmed as soon as the fruit
is picked, at which time the canes
that have fruited should be removed
and the most vigorous shoots cut
Currants bear most on wood of the
pievious year's growth, and on canes
not over four years old. They should
be trimmed about the middle of June,
at which time all suckers but a few of
the most vigorous root shoots should
be removed. After frost comes all
canes and branches that have not
made vigorous growth i f new wood
should be removed. Bulletin.
(iood Prune Crop.
Reports from the leadiug prune
growing districts of Oregon aud Wash
ington are to tbe effect that mote
prunes have set this yeai than in any
previous year for a long time. There
is, of course, no telling bow many ol
the prunes will drop iu the course of
tbe next few weeks, but tbe present
ontlook for tbe crop is unusually fa
vorable. It also appears to be a good
year in which to have a large crop.
The prune supply of the United States
hat been reduced to practically
nothing, so that there will ho no old
prunes to interfere with tbu market
demand for the new crop.
" O Recommend the Pact He Ilex.
At a recent metin2 of Canadian
fruitgrowers it was recommended that
a law be enacted which would permit
only one size of closed apple boxes to
be used In the Dominion of Canada,
ine size recommended is the one
which is already stsudard Jn the Pa
oiflo Northwest, viz.. 10 by U by
inuhes, inside meaMiirernent. Those
who sell in local markets in open box
es are to be allowed to use any sort of
a box they choose.

The Dalle; I nn ! Mill ( reek Falls.
The Dalles is now the owner of Mill
creek falls, a deed having been filed
in the clerk's ofllca transferring from
P. C. Fagan and wifo to Dalles City a
parcel of 160 norm of land about eleven
miles south of tbe city on which is lo
cated a 120-foot fill of water capable
"f generating an immense water pow
er. wblob mar In the future he used
for furnishing power with which to
light he oity and also for mauuractur
lug purposes.
As stated in the Chronicle some
weeks ago, tbe water commission jIihh
for some time been considering tbe
advisability of taking advantage of a
proposition to purchase land in that
vicinity. Doing in doubt, however,
as to whether or not tbe fall was situ
ated on t' e land in question tbey em
ployed .1. I). Ooit to make a survey
and determining that it was, at once
made the deal for ltxi acres at a cost
ot $1000 and thus seonred the fall.
Investigation proved that by con
structing a dam eighty feet at its
highest point and about 2.10 feet
across, tbe water can be raised eighty
feet and an Immense reserve force be
secured. In this manner an amount
of water suttlcieut for the needs of
the city during tbe summer mouths,
to any nothing of the extra power,
may be husbanded.
In semiring this water power the
commission feels that it has opened
to the city possibilities which may in
tlie future prove Invaluable.

Wick's place nine miles np Mill creek,
was purchased from Mrs. Husau Fox
