Tojsome ofiour advertisers, especially those
who have paid for their advs. in advance, we owe
an apology for the nonappearance of the Union
t- - since June. We also owe an apology to our few
i exchanges that have been continued to our ad-
f dress and hope their proprietors will accept our
""" thanks for the same, and we shall aim to merit
t'tcir approbation hereafter.
jOw There are various reasons why we hiive thus
kj delayed, and perhaps an explanation will be ben-
I " ' eficial. After completing the old volume of the
Union, we desired to make some changes in
'B? --. - . the style of headings etc., and delayed a month so
K jfmi' - to do. Then, as we were making ready to com-
f ' mencc the new volume, the managers of the Sil-
' - j rer Reef Miner desired us to go and work n that
office; and, as wc had not received enough from
. , M . ' m nr Publishing to meet our cash demands, we
"'m " ' thought it advisable to go there and labor for a
1 while to gain a little of the "riches of this world'1
j " . to make us square in this broad, free land!
L '' M Now we commence anew, and we shall aim to
WRfy -.' make the Union the Newspaper of Southern Utah

PINCHING THE RUNNERS OF MELONS, 1
A practical gardener makes the following im
portant'statcmcnt: uAs a test of frequent prac
tice among fruit growers of melons and squashes,
I pinched the ends of the long main shoots of the
melons, squashes and cucumbers, and left some
to run at their own will. One'squash plant sent
out a single stem reaching more than forty feett
but did not bear any fruit. Another plant fwas
pinched until it formed a compact mass of inter
mingling side shoots eight feet square, and it bcre
sixteen squashes. Also a musk-melon plant thus
pinched in, covered the space alloted to it, and it
set twenty-three specimens of fruit. The pinch
ing causes mnny lateral branches, which latter
produce the female or fertile blossoms, while the
main vines produce only the male blossoms. The
difference in favor of the yield of an acre of mel
ons treated by this pinching process may easily
amount to 100 barrels." Ex.
Not long since we had -a melon plant that bore
51 melons, 45 of which matured beferc frost came.
Some of the runners were pinched and some were
I not. We know that the pinching process, prop
erly managed, will add about 50 per cent, yield to
the farmer's crop.

HE THAT HTH EARS, LET HIM HEAR.
We have greatly marveled why there should be
so much evil dwelling in the hearts of the sons
of men. i'omeofour exchanges arc rife with
glaring accounts of all manner of wickedness
stalking abroad in the land, insomuch so that the
head turns dizzy and the heart sickens at the
thought, and to quell our feelings and to find the
cause of all this wickedness, we have searched in
all the records that have been written here on
earth, that we might come to a right conclusion
satisfactory to our own mind.
In our researches we find it is n,ot
because mankind have not intelligence
enough to know right from wrong, or good from
evil, butbecausc the sons of men sufier themselves
to be deluded by persons standing forth as mes
sengers sent from the great Eloheim, to teach us
how to be saved in the Kingdom of God, and also
how to organize political and civil governments
here on the earth, who were impostors, who
taught lies for truth, and thereby deceived the
great mass of mankind from the morn of Creation
to the present day. Vet, a correct knowledge, or
information, of the true and living Gor has been
on the earth from the first to the last, ami if man-
kind had been as eager to obtain this knowledge
as they were to obtain the riches, honors and glo
ries of this world, they would have escaped near
ly all the sorrows and misery that have been en
durcd. And now, after so long a time, in the end
of the-world, in the "last days,1' if men will seek
the true and living God, in good earnest, they -,"-,"v-"
shall find Him, to the great joy of their souls.
We shall, as time permits, examine into the
records given by the great Eloheim and those
written by priestcraft.
About the first teachings of old Lucifer that wc
read of, was soon after the flood, by which the
first great idolatrous church was instituted, known
as the Sabiati, then followed the Magi an, and then
came the Mahomcdan, and last, but not least, the
Modern Christianity, as it is falsely called. We
will examine all of these systems and show the ;
contrast between them and the holy order of our j
great God, creator of hcayen and earth.
To be continued.
Any farmer who baa been accus
tomed to raising apples and other
fruit, and have been uniformly
successful will doubtless say that
if he expects to get good crops he
jfej treats the orchard as he does for
B any other crop. He manures it
II and he finds that a manure that
p will do for most other crops will
f do for the crop of fruit. It is the
H neglect to manure orchards at all
g that cause them to bear so poorly
and the trees to look in bad con-
U dition. Nothing is better than wood
P asheR for orchards. Next to wood
B ashes there is no fertilizer better
j than Barnyard manure. A liberal
g application of this, if only once in
mm two or three years, "with careful r
H pruning and scraping of the trees
18 and ferreting out the borers and
all other insects which lie conseal
ed under the bark, will soon make a t
change in the productiveness of the "T
orchard. November and December I
are the best months to apply the ma
nure and to give the trunks of the i
trees a good scrapiDg off of all old
bark. If the trunks were washed with
whale oil soap, say one" pound to a
bucket of water, there would not be i
many insects left alive after the operation
