I This lovely bud. so young and fair,
Called home by early doom.

This lovely bud to heaven conveyed
And. bude it blossom there.

CONVENIENT FRUIT GATHERER
Sheets Placed on Opposite Sides of
Tree Catch Whatever Falls and
Separates Twigs.
Two of these fruit gathering sheets,
plnced against the tree on opposite
sides, catch tho fruit shaken from the
Fruit Gatherer
tree, convey lt to the chut* - , separate
the leaves and twigs by ans of
screens, and deposit the fruit in tho
shipping boxes plnced on I i ground.
PLAN TO REPAIR SPLIT TREE
Large Limbs Can Be Lifted Baok Into
Place by Use of Block
and Tackle. .
Ten to ono there are some trees In
your orchard that are spilt down, one
big branch on the ground, or perhaps
a crotch has split and the whole tree
has spread. If the tree ls worth the
effort, lt can be saved provided the
spilt ls clean. Of course, if the
branch ls splintered and cracked, bet
tor finish the job by sawing the branch
off and dressing the wound up as
smoothly os possible, applying a good
coat of white lead und raw linseed oil
to the wound for protection.
If the wound ts of such nature that
It can be repaired, lift the brunch back
Into position; large limbs cnn Le lift
ed back with a block and tackle.
Place bolts through the break In
such a manner as to draw the parts
together. A bolt may be plnced a foot
or so above the split to net us a brace,
and then the parts ol the wound
drawn together by n bolt or two
through the part split down. There
should be large washers at each end
of the holts so that tho parts may be
drown together very securely. If a
bolt end protrudes much of a dls
I tance lt can be clipped off if desired,
and within a few years the trees will
grow over the exposed bends und nuts.
A little time spent with the bruce and
blt and a few bolts may suv? a lot
of time it would take to set out and
grow u new tree.
Trees in Home Orchard.
The home orchard tis a rule includes
some plum, cherry, and peech trees,
these should have tho dead limbs
primed out and sprayed.
Spray to Kill Scale.
If scale is In your orchard there Is
; nothing to do but spray it und tho
sooner you get ut lt the better.
.*>< " Bi idyo of Success.
Spraying is the bridge over which
many a fruit grower hus passed io ih?>
shore of sue et as.
The Mexican government has de
cided to spend about $3,000,000 on
