HIGH-HEADED GARDEN TREES
They Permit Working Ground Under
Them and for Growing Crops
That Stand Shade.
(Prepared by th? United States Department
In tho small home garden, where
it ls necessary to utilize overy foot
of ground, trees with the heads formed
5 to 7 foot high are desirable. They
allow for working the ground under
them and for growing certain crops
that will thrive In partial shade. Yeors

ago lt was the common practice of
American nurserymen to head young
trees at 4 to 6 feet high, but the
demand for low-headed trees for com
mercial orchards forced a change and
now nursery fruit trees are grown
with heads formed at 4 feet or lower.
The United States Department of
Agriculture says that many of the
English and French nurserymen, who
supply local trade, grow trees with
tall, bare trunks especially. for gar
den culture. American nuserymon
Similarly sltunted might find profit in
producing such trees.
Gardeners who cannot find high
headed trees are advised to buy tall
yearling whips and form the heads nt
such height as they desire. After set
ting the tree cut oft the stem at six
or seven feet above the ground and,
ns the buds break, rub oft' all those
to within n foot of tho top. Leave
three to five buds spneed evenly
around the trunk to form a well-bal
anced head. It ls possible to grow

SELDOM SPRAY BUSH FRUITS
Raspberry and Blackberry Canes
Should Be, Cut Out and Burned
Soon as Fruit Is Off.
Most of tho diseases of raspberries
and blackberries cannot bo satisfac
torily controlled by spraying, says n.
A. Cardlnell, of the Missouri College
Plant only those varieties which are
moro resistant to disease, such as
Kansas black raspberry, etc., for Mis
souri conditions. Gut out and burn all
old canes ns soon ns tho fruit ls off.
If caterplllors appear on leaves af
ter plants ore In foliage, spray with
arsenate of lead at the rate of ono
pound of tho powdered form to GO gal
lons of water.
It has not been found practical to
spray currants and gooseberries for
leaf spot. If the importod currant
worm appears, spray or dust with
paris green and lime. (Uso hellebore
or pyrethrum ; one ounce to two gal
lons of water after fruit ls half grown.)
If mildew, a grayish, powdery fun
gus, appears apply potassium sulphide
(liver of sulphur) at tho rate of one
ounce to two or three gallons of wa
ter. If plant lice (aphids) appear uso
nicotine sulphate before they curl tho
leaves. Plowing under dead leaves or
burning them will aid greatly In the
control of leaf spot
RASPBERRY PATCH DISEASES
AnthracnoBo ls Most Serious Ailment
and Gives the Canes Scabby
Raspberry patches aro subject to
two or threo quito serious diseases.
One ls blight, which causes thc canes
to die, and tho burk becomes un
healthy. Anthracnose gives the canes
a scabby appearance. This perhaps ls
the worst disease of all. If these aro
the real causes of tho unthrlftiness,
spraying with bordeaux mixture will
be effective. However, If the patch
bas become badly diseased, do not fool
with lt. It will be more profitable to
