PIQMY TREES AND MINIATURE LANDS
CAVES. In some ways the Chinese tuul
Japanese gardeners are the most
succssful of any in the world. They
can control and direct the growth of
plants to a degree that seems really
marvellous until the principle upon
which it is done is known, when, as
in many other matters, it becomes
ThoChincsc have such a strong
liking for the grotesque, and' unna
tural, that the handiwork of their
gardeners is not so pleasing a that
of the Japanese gardeners. The
Chinese understand dwarfing of
trees ; but their best work is in so
directing the growth of a tree or
plant, that it will resemble some
hideous animal which is only (It to
exist in a nightmare.
Japanese, on the contrary, are re
jnarkablc for their love of what is
beautiful and graceful, and, conse
quently, ugly forms find no favor
with them. Every Japanese has a
garden if it be possible; but, as
space is valuable in Japan, only the
very rich can have large grounds,
and the family in moderate circum
stances must be content, witn a gar
den often smaller in area than the
tloor of one 6f our hall bed-rooms in
a narrow, city house.
Nevertheless, that small garden
must contain as many objects as the
large garden, and, of course, the
only way of accomplishing the de
sired result is to have everything in
miniature. It is no uncommon thing
to sec a whole landscape contained
in a space no greater than the top
of your dining-tablc. There will be
a mountain, a stream, a lake, rocky
grottoes, winding paths, bridges,
fawns, fruit trees, shrubs and
llowcrs ; all so artistically laid out
as to resemble nature itself. In the
lake will swim wonderful, filmy -finned
gold and silver fish, and not
infrequently the tall form of a crane
will be seen moving majestically
about the tiny landscape.
This seems wonderful enough ;
but what will you think when I say
that almost the samo landscape is
reproduced on so small a scale that
the two pages of St. Nicholas, as it
lies open before you, can covet it!
hi this case, a tiny house is added ;
delicate green mob& takes the place
of grass, and glass covers the lake
where the water should be. Coun
terfeit fish swim in the glass lake,
and a fal&e wane overlooks the
whole scene, just as the real crane
does the larger landscape. The
mountain, winding walks, bridges,
and rocky grottoes are in the little
landscape ; and real trees, bearing
fruit, or covered with dainty blos
soms, are in their proper places.
These trees arc of the right pro
portions to fit the landscape, and
they arev consequently, so 'tiny that
one is tempted to doubt their reality ;
and more than one stranger has slyly
taken the leaves or fruit between
the fingers, in order to make sure
that the dwaffsdo truly live, and are
not, like the fish and crane, mere
counterfeits. These, miniature land
scapes have been successfully
brought to this country ; and on one.
occasion a lady of ban Irancisco
used one of them as a center-piece
on the table at a dinner-party,
greatly to the wonder and admira
tion of her guests, who would
scarcely be convinced that the al
most microscopic apples on the trees
were genuine fruit..
And now comes the question
how is the dwarfing done? The
principle is nimple. The gardener
merely thwarts nature. lie knows
that, to grow properly, a tree re
quires sunlight, heat, moisture, and
nourishment from the soil. He takes
measures to let the tree have only
just enough of these to enable it to
To begin, he takes a little seed
ling, or cuttifig, about two inches
high, and cuts off its main root. He
then puts the plant in a shallow
dish, with the out end of the root
resting against a stone, to retard its
growth by preventing nourishment
entering thatway. Bits of clay the
size of a bean arc put in the dish,
and are so regulated in kind and
quantity as to afford the least possi
ble food for the litttle rootlets which
have been left on the poor little tree.
Water, heat and light are furnished
the struggling plant in justsulllcient
quantities to hold life in it without
given it enough to thrive on. In
addition, any ambitious attempt to
thrive, in spite of these drawbacks,
is checked by clipping with a sharp
knife, or searing wiln a rendhot
After from live to fifteen 3'ears of
rfuch treatment, the only wonder is
; , that the abused tree will consent
even to live, to Bay nothing of bear
ing fruit. John Ji. Gotell, in the.
