Top Grafting Old Trees.
I think tho subject of top-grafting Is
ono that has been too much over
looked, said' Herman Behrens before
a meeting of apple growers. Top
grafting when clearly understood and
properly applied is ono of the most
helpful moans for Improving old or
chards. It must bo borno in mind
that tho great majority of orchards
In this part of tho country planted a
scoro of years ago did not receive tho
careful attention and foresight of tho
orchards planted during tho past few
yearB. It would bo a comparatively
cosy matter to find instances where
the owners of such orchards would
bo ready to cut down the trees and
plow up tho orchards. An indifference
to proper attention and care the trees
should havo received bus allowed
many fungous diseases and other ob
structions to the growth of trees to
becomo prevalent; in fact, to seem
ingly gnln the mastering hand. Now if
tho apple growers knew moro about
top-grafting they could step in and
uso this method to the best udvantago
in such cases. Thcro are different
methods in top grafting. Some like
to cut off one limb of tho tree and
then insert the graft. Where there
aro threo strong, well preserved limbs
it would require three years to perfect
such grafting. My plan would bo to
graft all limbs on tho tree whether
thero ore threo or four main limbs at
ono tlmo and let tho caso rest for one
year. If on close examination ono
year aftor graft has been made It
is found to bo growing I then
would saw off each limb where
tho graft has inado its proper effect.
In caso tho graft, which Is something
llko vaccination, had not struck into
the life and sap of the limb, I would
rograffc and wait patiently for tho best
A Plum Orchard Village.
Ono day some years ago an enter
prising resident of tho villago of Syra
cuse, O., brought a Damson plum tree
homo with him and planted it in his
own front yard, says Country Life in
America. It grew and thrived and
In good tlmo boro fruit. It was good
fruit und he planted moro along his
garden fence from sprouts that came
up fiom tho first trco. They also soon
boro flno plums. By this time his
neighbors had their attention attracted
to his modest plum orchard. They
bought his surplus plums aud begged
sprouts from about his trees, thus ex
emplifying tho spirit of the boys who
desiro to cast their lines in productive
It was found that the locality was
comparatively freo from two annoying
plum pests black knot und insects
and tho gieut bend of the river seemed
to protect tho fruit from latb frosts,
so that two full crops every three
years might bo expected with reason
ablo certainty. The result was tnat
plum growing spread from lot to lot
and from street to alloy until the In
dustry amounted almost to a craze.
The markets grew and expanded, how
ever, and thero nover was any
difficulty In disposing of the crops at
good prices. When other localities
hud crops Syracuse had to be content
with tho ruling prices in the general
markets, but when other places failed
Syracuse niado her own prices.
Ten years ago tho leading producei
of apples was Ohio, while Michigan
stood second and Kentucky third. Ol
late years a good many other states
havo planted heavily, and it is doubt
ful what state now ranks first. Among
the states that havo planted many
millions of apple trees during the" last
few years are Virginia, New York.

Miss Gannon, Sec

"Dear Mrs. Pintciiam: I can conscientiously recommend Lydia H
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound to those of my sisters suffering with
female weakness and tho troubles which so often befall women. I suf
fered for months with general weakness, and felt so weary that I had
hard work to lreop up. I had shooting pains, and was utterly miserable.
In my distress I was advised to uso Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound, and it was a red letter day to mo when I took tho first dose,
for at that time my restoration began. In six weeks I was a changed
woman, perfectly well in every respect. I felt so elated and happy that
I want all women who suffer to get well as I did." Miss Guila Gannon,
859 Jones St., Detroit, Mich., Secretary Amateur Art Association,
It is clearly shown in this young lady's letter that Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegotablo Compound will certainly euro the sufferings
of women; and whon one considers that Miss Gannon's letter is
only ono of the countless hundreds which wo are continually
publishing- in the newspapers of this country, tho great virtue of Mrs. Pink
ham's medicine must beadmitted by all ; and for the absolute cure of all kinds
of female ills no (substitute can possibly take its place. Women should bear
this important fact in mind when they go into a drug- store, and be sure not
to accept anything that is claimed to be ' just as good " as Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound, for no other medicine for female ills hu
made so many actual cures.
How Another Sufferer Was Cured.
44 Dear Mrs. Pinkiiam : I cannpt praise your wonderful remedies
enough, for they bavo done mo more good than all tho doctors I hava
had. For tho last eight years and moro I suffered with female troubles,
was very weak, could not do my housework, also had nervous pros
tration. Some days I would remain unconscious for a whole day and
night. My neighbors thought I could novor recover, but, thanks to
your medicino, I now feel liko a different woman.
" I feel very grateful to you and will recommend Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound to all. It has now been four years since
Ihad the last spell of nervous prostration. I only weighed ninety
eight pounds at that time ; now I weigh ono hundred and twenty-three.
"I consider your Vegetablo Compound tho finest remedy made.
J hanking you many times for tho benefit I received from your medicine.
I remain, Yours truly, Mrs. J. II. Farmer, 2809 Elliott Ave., St. Louis, Mo.
Remember Mrs. Pinkham's advice is freo and all sick women
aro foolish if they do not ask for it. Sho speaks from the widest
experience, and bus helped multitudes of women.
