As this is the season for pruning or
chards we give the following which we
find in the Cincinnati Commercial.
- "The skillful gardener when pruning
trees will use his judgment, so that the
cut where the branch U cut from will heal
over with new bark. ' This should be
aimed at in every instance. We will
here give a general rule, though subject
- Branches from one to three inches in
diameter ahould be cut almost on a level
with the trunk or arm; larger branches
should be allowed from a quarter to half
an inch between the cut and Hush ol the
trunk or arm. If a fold of bark and
wood has formed at the junction of the
branch and arm, allow more space. If a
surgeon amputates a human arm he will
make calculations to leave enough flesh
and skin to heal over the bone; indeed it
would be ridiculous, if the bone was left
So, also, should these principles be ap
plied in amputating branches. . In the
place of leaving a dead,, ugly stump pro
truding, cut rather close than otherwise;
the bark will fold over, in most cases;
make a clean smooth cut, without crack
ing either bark or wood, and your trees
will go on as nature Intended them, rich
in productiveness, rare in beauty and or
nament. . ' Joint Quill.

The following is the plan of winter
feeding of dairy Block used by the Hon.
Harris Lewis of New York.
"At five o'clock in the morning feed
all the good hay that the cows will eat;
clean back the manure, and milk. After
milking attend to the hay; -and if more is
required, provide it After breakfast
commence watering by turning the young
stock out first, and then the older, those
in each stable by themselves, cleaning
and dusting 'the stable while the occu
pants are out. ' If the weather is stormy
however, no more are let out at once than
ean drink together, and put back in the
stable immetiUtely after drinking, where
each one finds a small lock of hav in the
manger. . " ' ' : '.
Soon after noon each cow receives a
peck of sliced roots; but not more hay
until nearly five o'clock in the afternoon
when they are all fed all the hay they
will eat up clean. ':
For old cows, and those that have
milked down thin, meal may be fed with
the roots to good advantage in quantity
tj meet the requirements of the cow.
But I am decidedly in favor, of feeding
cows bay but twice per day, leaving the
cow ample time to masticate the hay un
disturbed, which is a very important con
sideration for all ruminants. - -
We have some dairymen who believe
it economy to winter their cows very
cheaply on straw and corn-stalks,or what
is usually termed coarse fodder. - These
dairymen I pity much, but their cows
more. I have heard them fcpeak of win
tering cows through to February, and
ven March, on coarse fodder in a boost
lag sort ef way, but I tell yoa gentlemen
of the cow party, no man need think he
can cheat the cow out of her needfnl
board without being bamboozled in the
final result. ' I believe that the best way
is to feed cows all the good grass they
require, either green or dry firet.and then
as much coarse fodder as they may de
sire to eat." . "
Speech of Hon. James : Monroe
on the House Bill to Provide
Against the Evils of Intemper
ance in tho District of Colum-
, bia. ':.,. ..
, Mr. Monroe.addrussed the House as fol
Hr, Speaker, I avail myself of the few
moaeiU allowed me to explain the provis
ions of House BlU No. 5,813, which Is end
tied A bill to provide against the evils aris
ing from the sale of intoxicating drinks in
the District of Colombia.'
-1 do not propose to enlarge, on this occa
sion, upon the evils of Intemperance. To do
so, would hardly be treating with the respect
which it deserves the intelligence of this
House. The terrible character and vast ex
tent of these evils are universally acknowl
edged. AU classes admit that a large por
tion of the poverty, disease and crime of our
country, and of the world, is due to this
cause. The pulpit, the bench, the bar, the
ssedlcal profession, and the teachers of
youth, unite In voices of warning upon this
subject. There Is no civilised country which
has not attempted to provide by law, in
some degree, against the evils of intemper
ance. Any extended review of these evils
has been made unnecessary bv the thorough
and exhaustive treatment which the subject
has received la speeches addressed to this
House daring the last and the present Con-
grew by the able Representative from' New
Hampshire, (Mr. Blair.)
.It Is ao doubt true that we ean attain only
approximate accuracy in the statistics of
crime and misery which the trafBe in alco
holic beverage furnishes us, but we all do
know that the calamity ia so great that it
would be difficult to find any statistics that
could accurately measure it, or any Imagina
tion, should such statistics be reached, that
could fully embrace their meaning. . The
quality of our statistics, however, win be
greatly Improved whenever the House will
consent to psss the senate bill to provide for
a commission on the subject of the alcohol
ic liquor traffic' a good work which I (nope
we shall accomplish before the close of the
session. Such a commission could not do
everything, but It could do much. It could
extend the bounds of accurate knowledge In
regard to our monster evil, and so far as It
should go, would give us a body of facta
which would be anthoritattve and which
could not be attributed to party prejudice or
to the extravagance of high-wrought feeling.
Unhappily the district of Columbia is not
free from the calamity which afflicts other
portions of the country. The evil exists
here In such proportions as to challenge at
tention and demand legislative remedies. In
say leg this I do not at all express approval
of statements which have sometimes been
published that Washington is among the
moat disorderly, intemperate and immoral
cities ot the Union. On the contrary, 1 be
lieve that the opposite of this Is true. I am
convinced that the relative character of this
city for sobriety and good order la very high.
But, while Washington may Justly claim this
relative merit, the evils resulting from tho
sale ot Intoxicating drinks la this District
are absolutely very great. As Introducing
us at once to some knowledge of the extent
of these evils, I present to the House an ex
tract from a letter which I have recently re
ceived from the excellent superintendent ot
police, who has devoted himself to the cause
of good order and sound morals in this me
tropolis with unusual courage and earnest
ness. He says:
'It is safe to say that seven-tenths of all
arrests made are due directly to the immod
erate use of intoxicants.
There are at present upwards of five hun
dre licensed bar-rooms ia this District, and
It Is estimated that there are at least three
hundred additional plavea where liquor is
sold contrary to law.
If any apology were needed tor Introducing
into this House a bill to protect the people
from the evils ot Intemperance, certainly an
ample one would be found In the fact tbat
seven-tenths of all the arrests made in the
very city where we assemble are due to this
cause. But what are the number and char
acter of these arrests? A satisfactory an
swer to this question may be found In a sum.
mary of arrest taken from the report of the
operations of the police department for the
past year, furnished me by the superintend
ent, from which we learn that the number of
arrests was 12,838; seven-tenths of which, or
8,633, according to the safe estimate of the
superintendent, were due to the immoderate
use of Intoxicants. Other painful facts are
disclosed.' Nearly one bait of the arrests, or
5,315, were of native white persons. The of
fenses against the person are 8,798, or nearly
three-fourths of the whole. Two thousand
seven hundred and sixty persons arrested
almost one-fourth of the entire number
were between the ages .of ten and twenty,
mere boys and girls. . Keeping these deplor
able facts In mind, and remembering In how
large degree they were produced by Intoxi
cating tM. ke, furnished by eight hundred
tippling bouses, three hundred of which
exUt in defiance of law, we shall see how
little excuse there can be for spa thy on this
subject InUiis House, to which, with the oth
er branch ot Congress, has been'Rlven by the
Constitution power 'to exercise exclusive
legislation' over the District of Columbia.
Facta like these have msde me feel that I
could not Justify myself In remaining quiet
la my place without attempting to secure the
passage ot some bill like that which I hsve
Introduced. ' . ' '
The regard which we feel for the virtue.
intelligence and happiness of the people.the
desire to promote the general' welfare which
Is, no doubt, sincerely felt and Is often ex
pressed upon this floor, the very pride which
we take In tbis capital of our common coun
try, should prompt as to adopt some form of
remedial legislation. "
, Some law to provide against the evils ' of
intemperance in this District Is demanded
not only by the sense of duty but by the best
public opinion. Early In the present session
I had conference upon this subject with the
District commissioners, the major of police,
clergymen, business men and other promi
nent citiaens, all of whom I found deeply
Interested in this question of good order and
public morals. At a later period a petition
was Intrusted to me signed by the accredited
representatives ot fifty-three temperance or
ganisations, secular and religious, represent
ing more than six thousand membersa peti
tion which I presented to this House and had
referred to the Committee for the District of
Columbia. In compliance with tha earnestly
expressed wish of these petitioners, and la
accord with the Judgment of many Intelligent
eltlxens, I offered to the House the bill which
has been read. No bill could be more rea
sonable and moderate and retain any con
siderable degree ot cadency.
. Its provisions will require little explana
tion. Sections 1 and 9 make It a criminal
offense to sell intoxicating drinks to minors
or to persons in the habit of becoming intox
catcd. I will venture, to say that no member
of this honse will object to these provisions.
No sane man will contend that Intoxicating
liquor should be sold to either of these class
es. Sections substantially like these have
long formed a part of our Ohio law, where
they have produced excellent results in pro
tecting those who are least able to proUct
themselves. Section 8 provides suitable
penalties for the violation of the provisions
of sections 1 and 3.
: Tbe object of section four is to break up
those places where Intoxicating liquors are
sold contrary to law. ' These places defraud
the revenue, demoralise our you'h and pro
mote lawlessness and disorder generally. To
I he evils of drara-selling they add tbe moral
degradation which comes from concealment,
evasion of the law, and attempts to escspe
the police. Heretofore the right of tbe po
lice, nnder the law, to enter these pieces for
the purpose of exposure and prosecution haa
not been clear. Thts section, properly enough
gives tbe same right to the police to enter
houses of this kind that they already have to
enter caoibling houses or plsces where lottery
tickets are sold. It trests the implements of
the trade In these unlawful d rlnklng houses
aa affording "prima fade' evidence, as In the
case of burglar's tools and the furniture of
gambling-houses, that an unlawful business
la carried on. -
Under this section the msjor of police Is
authorised to send members of his force to
enter all premises where Intoxicating drinks
are sold contrary to law, to arrest all persons
engsged In the unlawful traffic and bring
them before the police court, and to seise
the Intoxicating liquors and convey them to
the office of the major ot police. Tbe per
sons so arrested are to be prosecuted, and,
upon conviction, to be punished, and the
liquors seized are to be destroyed and the
premises to be closed. This Is a thorough
process, but It is necessary to accomplish the
object, and I do not see that any well-founded
oblectlon ean be urged against It. No
reason ean be given for making this mode of
procedure lawful against gambling-houses,
and other like places that are kept in defi
ance ef law, which does not equally apply to
places where liquors are sold.
Section 5 authorises the commissioners of
the District to revoke and withdraw licences
from all persona who keep disorderly houes
or show themselves aallt persons to continue
the sale ot intoxicating drinks. It may be
said that this Is too large a grant of power
to be Intrusted to the judgment ot the commissioners.-
But If their judgment Is ade
quate to the responsibility of grsnting licen
ses, why should it not be equal to the work
of withdrawing them? The latter seems to
me much the less difficult and delicate task
of the two.
To section 8, no objection can be urged.
Every one must approve of giving the com
missioners power to close all places, from
end to end of the District, where intoxicat
ing drinks are sold, whenever, as in eases of
riot or other like circumstances, the public
peace and safety may demand it.
Such are the provisions ot this bill. It
contains no extreme measures, but is wholly
moderate and conservative In character. If y
objection to the bill is that it does not deal
thoroughly enough with an evil which ia so
lniurious and burdensome to this city and to
the country. But if it should become a
law, it would do great good so far as It goes,
and It haa the indispensable advantage that
it would be sustained by the public sentiment
of this District, and hence could be executed.
In a visit which I paid to tbe committee-room
of the Committee for the District of Colum
bia, I was glad to And that most of the pro
visions of this blU are Ukely to be reported
to the ITouse, either in the code which has
been prepared for the District or in some
other measure. In spite, therefore, of the
shortness of the session and of the pressure
of appropriation bills, I am not without
hope that at least a portion ot these provis
Ions against the evils of Intemperance may
pass this House before tbe final adjournment.
To this end I ak the candid consideration ot
members of this body for a bill which, in the
language of the major of police. Is an effort
to diminish crime and aid the cause of good
' Scarcely a week passes that some new
and tuccassful swindling dodge does
not come to our notice, practiced by
traveling agents who should be consid
ered and treated as highwaymen. The
papers are continually exposing their
methods and warning the too confiding
farmers to have nothing to do with
tliem, but still the advice is unheeded
and each fresh returniug swindle calls
to mind the old adage: "Experience
teanhes a dear school." Xot long ago
the patent spring bed -bottom man per
suaded Walter Soules to take an agency
for that very desirable piece of furni
tnre and induced htm to sign an order
for a bill of the same to sell on commis
sion. It will not take the reader long
to guess thai that paper was either a
note or such a contract as made it bind
ingon him to take and pay for the num
ber sent. But Walter loan "smelled a
mice" and promptly advertised them
and his note, relused to take the goods
from the express office when sent, and
when agent No. two came around in
tho ph.ipe of a guilele8 limb of the law
to collect tbe money for those bed-bottoms,
was not only too sharp to be
caught by any of bis well-laid device
to innke him acknowledge himself in
debted to agent number one, but when
threatened with legal prosecution had as
the boys say, "and enough" In him to
openly defy and beat him at his own too
often successful . game of LloflV This
enterprising company of manufacturers
got discouraged and gave It np, ordered
their bed-bottoms shipped back and
Walter is once more happy. Not so
lucky were two of his neighbors who
were frightened into a compromise and
gave in settlement a fair note of hand
for an amount something less than that
originally agreed upon but still over
$100, and kept the bed-bottoms which
will henceforth do service in some un
occupied hay-loft adding to the comfort
and repose of sundry broods of chickens
or other feathered bipeds. Martlu Ca
vin of Spencer advertises a note in this
issue which be says was fraudulently
obtained and given without considera
tion and though we have heard no par
ticulars there is no doubt be Is a victim
o this or some other equally transpor
The'moet recent case that has come to
onr notice Is that of Mr. Abel Daugher
ty In Penfleld who was called npnn by
a wahing-niachine agent and persuad
ed to take the agency for this latest,
patent improved and best of all appli
ances to lighten the domestic hardships
of woman. The thing was lovely and
indispensable in every well-regulated
family and not to burden them at all or
allow them to take auy risk, he would
send them three machines, one of which
he would give them If they would sell
the other two for him. This Ihey could
do as slick as oil. The thing would run
itself, almost; would do an ordinary
washing while tbe lady was getting
breakfast. They had only to show It
to their neighbors and they would be
crazy for it and fairly spoiling for an
opportunity to purchase. It was so
essy that a blind man could not fail to
see it. He saw, and signed an order for
the machines. In a few days a pair of
these precious scamps came along to
settle with their purchasers and exhib
ited an order for two or three dozen ma
chines which they said were already at
the depot and by the conditions of the
contract the money was due. In vain
Mr. D. insisted that there wa some
mistake; they blustered and bullied;
talked shoot and one. of tbe party who
claimed to be a sheriff threatened to ar
rest the old man and take him to Cleve
land for trial and so worked upon his
fears that be signed a note for $140 or
more, and they went their way trusting
to sell It to some simple fool who does
not read the papers, before the transac
tion should becomo known. A note
obtained in tbat way is not worth the
paper it is written upon, but all tbe
same a liberal shave nine times out of
ter. stimulates the cupidity of some one
aud victim number two is added to the
list. We are informed that no washing
machines for Mr. D. have been received
at this station.
, And now my dear friends, for whose
benefit we are writing, it ia needless to
warn you to be ou your guard when
genteel strangers approach you with
business propositions. Experience
shows that such advice is wasted. Men
would rather be humbugged than ad
mit their own lack of business sagacity
and ability to care for the Interests of
Bather let us say that when the next
travelling man comes along and sets
bis trap for you, go right in with no
unnecessary delay, and do not stand on
the order of your going. ' Your knowl
edge and experience will be increased
if your pocket is depicted and that Is
certainly as good a reason as your great
grandparents could give for eating the
forbidden fruit. Go in, certainly. ' If
you do not you will miss some of the
most exquisite sensations of your lire.
You will know then bow it Is yourself,
aud it is knowledge that yoti cannot af
ford to take second hand. It will make,
you happier and wiser certainly the
latter and will furnish you a I leasing
toplo for contemplation by day and by
night. By all means, go in. Consid
erations of philanthropy i will comtort
and sustain you. ..Your, genteel ageut
must live and this manner of contrib
uting to his support is better than doing
it at the muzzle of the revolver or hav
ing him help himself while you sleep.
Now we think of it, we should prefer
this method ourselves and doubtless if
they could not succeed lu this way they
would adopt the other expedient.
Don't yon see this is legitimate busi
ness, the other is robbery. Don't fail
to go in. It will advance tbe good or
der and security of society ; to stay out
threatens ruin. You cannot afford net
to go in. Everybody else whom they
approach goes in and you don't want
ty be singular. ' Your reputation is at
stake. A man is a fool who does not
embrace a good opportunity to engage
in a genteel and lucrative occupation
when it is offered him. Just take an
agency every chance you have. The
honor of the thing will go far to com
pensate you. for any. pecuniary rUks
you may incur. Who wouldn't be an
