An apple In perfect preservation,
although ninety-six years old, is in
the possession of a gentleman in Ulster
county, X. V. As it rounded up from
the blossom of the parent stem in the
early Rummer of 1787, a hot tic wns
drawn over it and attached to the
branch, and after the apple had ripcu
cd, the stem wa severed and the bot
tle scaled tightly. It looks as freMi as
when first plucked.
An Ohio man has patented a grain
drill which sows the grain upon the
surface of the prepared ground in a
row six inches broad, and covers it by
shovels which throw the surface soil
over it, leaving an open furrow be
tween the rows of wheat. His drill
tubes arc one foot apart, so that half
the land is occupied by grain and half
by the furrows between. ISy this
method lie deepens the soil by placing
the seed at the surface and then put
ting the soil from between the rows
on top of it.
It is said that in Poland, where ven
tilation and drying are continued for
some time, wheat ha been kept sound
and good for half a century. Usage
never docs it iujury, and such wheat
is said to yield handsomer and better
flour than that obtained from grain
more rcceutly harvested. At Dantzic
the preparation for keeping wheat
continues for a year or longer, and
after this period it is often kept for
seven years perfectly sound in large
granaries, although Dantzic in sur
rounded by the sea. These facts show
how easily Avlicat may be preserved
if the proper precautious arc taken.
The idea of breeding com to per
petuate desirable qualities is now be
coming general, aud great expecta
tions arc now based upon the prac
tice. A farmer who for eight years
has selected the earliest ripeniug ears
of the Duttonnnd Kiug I'liillip corn,
says that by selecting the largest,
straightcst and most perfectly formed
cars he has now, as a result of the
cross, a hard, linn corn, tilled to the
tip, aud that these two kinds of corn
will ripen ready to cut tip in about
one hundred days from planting-. It
is interesting to think of at leat the
increased income which would rcniilt
If fanners could by better selection
and culture of corn add two or three
bushels even to the nverage of an acre.
W. II. Hutcliinsoii,of the Caldwell
Commercial, suggests a new plan in
connection with planting trees. After
placing the roots of the trees in the
soil, he knocks the bottoms out of half
a dozen beer bottles, inserts the necks
in the soil and tills them with water.
This luniMics suflicieut moMurc to
the roots and keeps the trees iu good
growing condition all summer. This
is the plan adopted by a number of
persons who rcw immense corn for
the centennial. Select a hill of corn in
a protected spot and insert a piece of
hickory bark at the roots. Keep this
filled with liquid mauure, and it will
bean easy mailer to have cornstalks
eighteen feet high with three or four
ears to the Malk. If you wish to take
the premium at the countv fair on big
com, try thU plan. Tho Arkansas
valley farmers have been "on to" this
for some years, aud arc always on
hand to get away with nil the prem
iums for big rorn.
The Cultivator gives the following
recipe for ridding sheep of licks: For
100 sheep take twenty-live pounds of
common coarse tobacco and put it into
aa many gallons of boiling hot water,
Jiit taken from the lire. Stir it oeca
lonally until cold, when the contents
fliould be strained. Add to the
strained liquid six pounds of soft soap
dissolved In three to four gallons of
hot water. Thou add to the whole
compound so much cold water as will
make tho quantity 100 gallons, which
liould be contained in one or two
large tubs, into which the sheep arc
dipped aud wrung out, taking care
meanwhile to hold the head of the
heep above the fluid to prevent the
auimal swallowing any of it. The
process is, of course, best' douo after
"hearing; but it should be rcmciii
Wcd that the ticks which arc not

therefore it may bo necessary to dip

THE GROWTH OF SORGHUM.
It may be sweet to die for one's
country, but the average Kansas pa
triot will find it more profitable, to
grow sorghum. This will soon be
come one ol our leading industries.
The Sunflower State is bound tp be
come the sweetest Slate in the Union.
The sorghum plant takes very kindly
to tho buffalo aud gramma gra6 re
gion of Western Kansas. Mr. O. Elli
son, formerly general Scandinavian
agent for the" A.,T. & S. P. R. It., says,
in reply to the question by a reporter
of thcTopcka Capital:
"Is the interest in sorghum grow
ing?" "Very good. There is no doubt
that, the stock aud mining iutcrcst
excepted, the sorghum prospects arc
more hopeful thau any others that
affect llio Western couutry. I'rof.
Swcnsou, of the chair of chemistry in
the Wisconsin University, has assumed
control of the Kansas Sugar Itellning
Works, at Hutchinson, with n capital
stock of 100,000. I'rof. Swenson is
an excellent chemict, and also an en
gineer, aud has made a thorough study
or this subject. This company will
probably plant 200,000 acres in cane
tliii year. A population i growing iu
the West that will consume a great
portion of what is raised and pay
three times what it will bring if
shipped East. There is Denver with
a population of about 75,000; l'ueblo,
20,000; Lcadville, 25,000; Tucson, 11,
000; Colorado Springs and Albuquer
que, 0,000 each; Las Vegas, 8,000;
Santa I"e aud El l'aso, 7,000 each ; and
so on, making a population of about
165,000 in tho-e nine cities."
A PRETTY FLOWERBED.
A tlowcr-bed of exceedingly pleas
ing effect, and yet inexpensive and
simple in its construction, is thus de
scribed by a correspondent of the
"The form was a circle about four
feet acro-s. A row of bricks was laid
in a circle, aud on the top of these
were laid large bits of common quartz,
which looked very while and pure
along the side of the soft, grccu gras.
The lnide wns filled with rich loam;
leaving about ten inches of Ibis for
tho outside flower-bed, another row
of the while stones was hud, aud earth

new arrange iiient, and was quite sur- '
prised to learn that it had been made,
three years, and was much easier to
keep iu order thau it was the first year. I
'In another part of the grounds
there was growing a large clump of
while pclitnia, completely covered
with pure, sweet, white blossoms.
The secret of their wonderful growth
was simply a bottomless earthen pot
suuk into the earth and tilled with old
chip dirt aud stable manure to within
six inches of Hie top, the rest being
filled wilh the earth taken from the
ground where the pot was set. I
S:ver saw so large a growth of the
ant or such au abundance of bloom,
and it kept its beauty till November."
Now is the time to cxcrcifc in the
garden. A Miial! portion of ground,
if well fertilized and deeply cultivated,
will yield many a good dinner duriug
the summer month; aud lliis is very
conducive to Iicatth aud happiness.
If it will pay to fertilize land for lield
crops, it will more than doubly pay to
treat the vegetable garden in that way.
If your garden was deeply plowed
last fall, do not rcplow il Ibis spring!
as there waa not much rain last win
ter, and il is now light and mellow;
simply stir ihc Mirface with the culti
vator to prevent the weeds from start
ing early. The coil will probably re
tain the moisture better during the
dry wcalhct; if not replowod Uiis
spring. If your garden was not plow
ed .last fall, put on a good dressing
from the stable or barnyard, and plow
it in well. The advauiagc of n narrow
furrow is that it pulverizes the (-oil
some what more; atkl of a deep one,
that it loosens more soil, and allows il
to absorb more of the spring rain, lay
ing it up for summer uc.
Put out half a dozen hills of rhubarb
if you have noue. This is suflicieut to
supply any ordinary family. Although
it is rather poor garden sauce, it is
the first grecu tiling that comes iu the
spring, is rather healthful, and will
whet your appetite for something bet
ter. An asparagus bed, n couple of rods
long aud half a rod wide, will supply
your breakfast (able with thai article
as frequently as you wish it, from
caHy spring until better vegetables
arc grown iu the summer.
Let a narrow strip in one part of
the garden be set apart for those
articles that arc best grown iu beds,
such as lettuce, onions, aud tho like;
btit let everything else be plautcd in
rows three and a half or four feet
apart, so that they may be cultivated
with the horse cultivator,
lie must bo possessed of an unusual
amount of patience and perseverance
who will keep the weeds of any con
siderable garden iu check simply with
tho hoe; ami, besides, the horse plow
or cultivator stirs the grouud moro
deeply, keeping it in a much better
conditio!! than it is possible to do with
the hoc or rake. Therefore, plaut
your garden iu such a shape that the
horse can nMt you iu its cultivation.
Beans and all small seeds, such us
beets, radi-lies and onions, should be
covered witli mellow earth and not
deeply. Low peas may also be cov
ered thinly; but the taller varieties,
such as need bushing, should be plant
ed as deeply as yon rau get them in,
and covered six or eight inches in
depth. The advantage of this is that
they will not dry up almost as soon as'
they begin to bear, as they do when
covered thinly, but will continuo to
bloom and bear for several weeks.
The lima bean is the great bean for
late summer aud fall use. They should j
be plautcd in hills about three feet;
apart in the row, and poled with;
sticks about seven or eight feel loug,
and set so firmly in the ground that a
strong wind will not upset them.
Then, if the season t not too dry, aud
the grouud is rich and well cultivated,
Uicv will coHtinuft to blossom and bear
from the first of August until frost
comes; and ihey aro n very rich- anrV
