thp r:;RaJH aj to Kill Trees.
The mast of the nourishinant of our
irca." is derived from the soil by means
of the system of roots. There arc
plants which can exist solely in the
air, deriving all- their no;irihment
from the air by means of their leaves.
In tropical regions this class of plants
ij very numerous, very mauy of the
orchis family being of this habit
Thcc plants liave no roots proper, but
what arc regarded as roots are merely
irmn of attachment to the bark of
tree? and stone; and other objects.
Still another closs of plants are true
parasites; these have what answer to
rojts, which pjnetrate within the bark
of other plants and draw their nour
ishment from the juices elaborated by
the organ" of those other plants. But
these arc divided into two classes:
Those that have green foliage, by
means of which the stolen sap is fur
ther elaborated and undergoes certain
changes, and those whose foliage is not
green and perhaps live wholly off the
fap sucked from the nurse-plans.
But in the case of by far the greater
part of plants and nearly al! of those
familiar to us, the roots arc necessary
to the life of the plant. Destroy these
and the plant die?, root and branch.
This is the principle on which we pro
ceed when we root up noxious weeds.
But in the case of trees this process
of uprooting is impracticable. Can
the roots of a tree be killed without
Let ns examine the process of the
growth of plants and the nourishment
of the roots. It is a fact that ths
roots of trees require constant nourish
ment they grow as tree grows. The
nourishment and growth of the roots
come from the sime organs as the
growth and nourishment of the stem,
viz.: from the leaves. If, then, you
prevent the nourishment of the roots
you kill them. It can be demonstrated
that the material of the growth of
trees come from the leaves, descend
ing, usually, between the bark and the
wood. During the season of greatest
growth this descending sap becoming
organized into vegetable tissue, forms
that mucilaginous coat by means of
which the bark is readily separated
from the wood. A portion of this new
tissue forms a new layer or growth of
wood, of which one is formed each
growing season or year. Another por
tion goes to form a new layer of bark
to keep the proper thickness of that
If a wire be made tight around a
limb or the trunk of a tree, as the tree
increases in size it will be observed
rhat it will bulge out more below than
above the wires If any twig, which
has leaves upon it, is cut offin the
growing season, just below a leaf, if no
sprout is allowed to grow, it will per
ish down to the next leaf. If a cut
ns made through the bark into the
wood, if it hcids up, it will be noticed
that the new wood will form above
and not below the cut. The circula
lion upward is in the pores of the
wood; this is the crude sap going up
towards the leaves: this crude matcri
al is elaborated in the leaves and green
parts of plants; and then; in a con
didion to form vegetable tissue, de
scends, in the case of trees having
bark, between the bark and the wood.
To kill the roots of trees, this nour
ishment must not be allowed to reach
them. If the bark and a portion of
the wood be cut through
entirely around the trunk, it
will generally kill the trunk of the
tree, but may not kill the roots, be
cause these, having a store of nourish
ment laid up, may throw up shoots,
and by these unfolding leaves the life
of the root is maintaine 1. But if it
can be so managed that the rising sap
shall not be interfered with during one
entire season, and the descending sap
prevented reaching the root? to nour
ishing them, the tree was continued to
grow a season, making its usual de
mands upon the roots, thereby exhaust
ing them, without iheir having means
of being nourished, and the result will
generally be that the whole tree will
perish, root and branch, the following
Care must be taken to allow no
suckers to grow from the roots; if anv
make iheir appearance, tliey must lx?
destroyed early or the plan will be de
feated. The right time to girdle trees
tn accomplish the desired object of
killing them to the roots is in the spring
if the year, just before the growth com
mences, or soon afler. The girdling
must be complete s-o far as the bark is
eoacernci. indeed it i better to
scrape the soft, white filaments of bark
: o!F with a knife, so a to be sure that
no moan's remain for the sap to de
scend, as will be the cae if care be
not taken. For it not unusually hap
pens that the btrk is not all removed
when tree? are girdled. It U easy for
the thin, mucilaginous coat to escape
a cardc3ness of removal. The course,
rough bark has no relation to the cir
dilation of the sap of the tree. It is
the soft coat next the wood. And it
is often the case when a valuable young
fruit tree has been barked by a. horse,
or maliciously by a person, that there
remain? all that the life of the tree re
quires in the filamentous, mucilaginous
coat, if it is only prevented from dying
up from exposure to sun and wind.
This may generally be done by wrap
ping the part with a cloth saturated
with grafting wax, if it is attended to
in tunc. A coating of fresh cow-dung
applied and wrapped with heavy cloth
will do quite well in most cases.
In the case of girdling trees for the
object referred to, to kill the roots as
well as stem, not only must care be
taken to remove all of the bark, but
at the same time too broad a band of
bark must not be removed or the wood
will season and the ascending sap will
be stopped, thus killing the trceabove
but not the roots. No rule can be
given, which will meet all cases. In
the case of some trees to remove the
bark for the space of an inch would be
sufficient, but for some trees it would
not be sufficient, because the descend
ing sap will, in some instances, be di
verted to the wood, and will descend
through it. This is the case wiih the
dogwood, persimmon, and others,
It will, therefore, always be safe to cut
the wood to some extent carefully all
around. In the cae of the silver pop-
lar, often a troublesome tree on ac
count of suckcring, it will be necessa
ry to cut the wood to the depth of half
an inch or more. In all cases the
band bared of bark must not be suf
ficient to allow the wood to season.
The willow, 0:1 account of its soft,
porous wood, will not readily se.i;on,
and if the wood in not cut, the bark
should be peeled off for a considerable
distance. Cor. Indiana Fanner.
Preserving Wheat in the Shock.
The great loss of wheat from ger
mination during the unprecedented
wet weather of the past month brings
the subject of its pcrservation after it
is cut into prominent notice; and al
though a discussion of the subject now
ma' not help to save the present crop,
it may do some good in the future.
The only object in shocking wheat is
to preserve it from getting wet during
the dry proces which it must undergo
previous to being hauled into the barn
or put in stock. But the manner in
which much of the wheat is shocked
would lead us to conclude that the
only object was to get into bunches
more convenient for loading. If there
was no danger of rain, this would be
the object principally, and the loose,
spreading, uncooth bunches we so of
ten see would answer the purposes.
Wheat properly thocked will stand a
great deal of rain, for a long time, too,
without much injury. This has been
demonstrated the present harvest. An
intelligent farmer from the southorn
part of the State, where they have suf
fered most severely from wet wether,
told us that well-shocked grain he had
examined was not growing except
the caps while the adjoining field was
mined, perhaps, by careles i-hocking.
Wheat is usually bound in sheaves
too large to shock well, and a good
.shock cannot bo made with loosely
bound sheaves. If the .sheaves are
made small, and tight bound, they
shock better and keep out the water
better, and if they get wet they will
dry out more readily than large
sheaves. Ever farmer almost knnia
how to shock wheat well enough, per
haps, but the do notalwaysdoit well,
very often this most particular part of
the work is intrusted to boys or help,
whose only object is to get it done the
Early-cut wheat will stand more ex
posure to wet weather than that cut
later, for germination cannot commence
until the grain is mature, and wet
weather delays the process of matura
tion, so that in many instances early
cut wheat, well shocked, has pased
through an extended wet spell before
it matured and came out wholly unin
Germination requires a certain
amount of both heat and moisture at
the same time, and the effort of the
larnier should be directed toward pre
venting a union of these conditions.
When damp, foggy, hot weather oc
curs, wheat will spout in the shock
sometimes when it would not if opened
out. Atsuchlinu-s thca'r is saturated
with moisture, and it .-tuns to pene
trate everywhere. Mildew will gather

A very small portion of sprouted
wheat spoils the "grist," as the starch,
the most important material for bread-
making purposes, is converted into su
gar, lience, the caps and sprouted
portions should be separated as well as
possible from the part not sprouted.
In many cases the cap-sheaves will be
all that contain germinated grains, and
these should be tlirown off and gath
ered in bv themselves. Sprouted
wheat makes good food for stock, and
where the quantity is not too great, it
can be threshed with oats or rye which
the fanner intends to feed to his own
animals. O.'iib Farmer.
The Corn Crop.
That the United States are to have
this year an abundant crop of corn, all
reports agree. An increased average
of eight per cent, has been planted,
and the crop (although backward in
the spring) is now getting on finely,
and promises a good yield. The cau
tious Agricultural Department reports
for July indicates almost an average
yield of corn, and since the date on
which that report is based were collec
ted, the conditions in nearly all parts
of the country have been extremely
favorable for increasing the yield.
With cheap and abundant food, the
facilities for fattening beef and pork
will bo increased, thus giving cheap
provisions. "We may, therefore, an
ticipatc an abundant stock for the
coming season, and in addition to
breadstuff's, can consequently spare
large quantities of pork, beef, lard,
butter, cheese, and other similar arti
cles for ous customers in Europe, and
thus equalize the changes, which will go
further towards improving the finances
than all the pet notions of the fancy
financers. Natfirillc Banner.
Kiilimf rxcil Corn.
A renter named Smith, who had a
hundred acres submerged in Upper
Bayou, yesterday took a skifFand went
out to where the water had been stand
ing for more than a week, four or five
feet in depth. Mr. Smith pulled otF
two cars of com average cars, just
maturing and brought them to the
city, and placed them on exhibition,
and to the astonishment of the exami
ncrs of the corn, it wa3 discovered to
be perfectly sound. The probabilities
are that one half of the crop will be
saved where the water has not cov-
ored or reached the car. There are
probably thousands of acres along the
river bottoms similarly situated, and
this fact, in the midst of general dis
couragement, is certainly a hopeful
sign. Evawrillc Courier.

the public at once rallied with enthusiasm t
its support, and the result was a neat artiitia
and commercial triumph THE ALDINE.
The Aldine while issued with all of the rega-
Iitity, has none of the temporary or timely in
terests characteristic of ordinary periodicals.
It is an elegant miscellany of pure, light, and
graceful literature, and a collection of pictures.
the rarest collection of artistic skill, in black

appreciated after it is bound np at the close ol

there i the ehromo, te$ide!
The national feature of The Aid ne ranit be
taken in no narrow sense. True art is cosmo
politan. While The Aldine is a strictly Ameri
ran institution, it does not confine itself to the
peproduction or native art. Its mission is to
cultivate a broad and appreciative art taste, one
that will discriminate on grounds of intrinsic
merit. Tbns, while pleadingbefore the patrons
of The Aldine, as a leading characteristic th
productions of the most noted American artists,
attention will always be given to specimens
from foreign masters, giving subscribers all the
pleasure and instruction obtainable -from home
or foreign sources.
The artistic illustration or American rcccery,
original with The Aldine is an important fea
ture, and its magnificent plates are of a sis
more appropriate to the satisfactory treatment
of details than can be afforded by any inferior
page. The judicious interspersion of landscape,
marine, figure and animal subjects, sustain an
unabated interest, impossible where the scope
of the work confines the artist too closely to a
single style of subject. The literature of The
Aldine is a light and graceful accompaniment,
worthy of the artistic features, with only such
technical disquisitions as do not interfere with
the popular interest of the work.
