SETTING FRUIT TREES.
Since trees in vcooked rows are un
sightly and make trouble In plowin
and cultivation of any crop put in
rows it Is just as well to set them
straight. While there Is more than
one way of doing this, there is no bet
ter method than the running of three
rows of sighting stakes both ways
across the area to be set. Of course
if the tract Is very large or the sur
face quite rolling more rows of stakes
should be set. it is well to begin at
one side, measuring off the distances
for the stakes and at the same time
sighting them, so that they mn1 set
true and straight. A row should then
be run in the same way on one of the
other sides at right angles to the one
aleady set. Two rows should then be
set near the middle of the tract paral
lel to the rows already set, and, lastly.
two other rows should be run through
on the two edges of the field not al
ready staked. These last rows may
be quickly set by sighting those al
ready In. From this point on no mens
mring stick is needed, it being possiWe
to quickly determine the location of
all the rest of the trees to be- set byI
sighting from the rows of stakes al
ready plaked. While the work of
planting ts expedited If two work to
gether, one person can sight both ways
alone and do vcry gotJ work. Anoth
er aid in setting the trees true Is a
board about four inches wide and four
feet long, in the middle of both ends
of which notches have been cut about
an inch squ-e and a third cut in one
edge at the middl and exteading half
sn inch beyond the exact center of the
board, so as to make an opening about
an inch sqae at the -enter. A long
straight stake should be used for the
center-the one which will mark the
location of the tree-while two pegs
considerably shorter sbould be used
for the ends.
When the tree stake has been prop
ecly set the board described should be
spped on to It so that the stake will
,e at the middle.The end pegs should
then be put in the nothes reterred to,
when the middle stake may be pulled

The field set apart for this purpose
should be by itself and separated from

thirty rods, which would reduce to a
minimum a pollination of the breeding

1The Dest Kiteflier Ia Tow.
Some years ago there died In Ne
braska a man named Walsh, who, as
a boy, started a suspension bridge.
When Walsh was about ten years old
the irst steps for the construction of
the suspension bridge at Niagara were
aken. The first thing necessary was
h stretching of a single wire across
the chasm. The engineer in charge
had thought of a way to-get it across.
"What boy Is the best kiteflier In
town' he asked.
The Walsh boy was named as the
best kiteflier In the town of Niagara
Falls, and the engineer accordingly1
asked that he be brought to him. He
was made to understand that he must;
fly his kite across the Niagara river.
e flew It across and allowed It to
come down on the other side. Men
were there to seize It. Then the en-1
gineer attached a wire to the string'
on his side, and the men on the other
side detached the kite and by means
of the string drew the wire across. By
this, In turn, a cable was dra win across,'
and the bridge was well begn.-Har

For planting in northwestern states
the Norwy poplar gives promise of
being a most valuable tree. It Is a
quick grower, making a diameter of
from six to ten Inches in eight or nine
years; Is hardy, does, well under a
great variety of conditins, possesses
a smooth and straight grain and can
be used for a variety of outdoor and
Indoor purposes and for butter work
ers, ey boots, wagon and' buggy
boxes. The tree may be propagated
by soang the cuttings in water for a
week 'before planting. They .should
be planted large end down about five
Inhes deep and In -rows 5 by 7 feet
apart .In mellow soil and cultivated
during the .first two or three years,
after which the trees will shade the

In view of the present scarcity of
corn of suf~cient vitality to justify Its
use as seed, the farmers In the north
er part of the corn belt, which was
visited by the severe freeze of last
October, are up against a very real
proposition. If they cannot secure
seed which will give them at least two
thirds of a stand they would better
put in small grain in piace of the corn.
They will be tempted to use seed
grown farther south because It will
gernlpte. but this is almost as seri
ous a mistake as using pobr seed, for
In all probabIul&corn from such seed
would not mature in time to escape
the fall frosts, In which case they
w~ild fare no better. If good seed of
the proper type can be secured at a
cost of even $12 per bushel it would
be better to use this than to use seed
that will npt germinate or mature a
crop of sound corn.
Taste and SmelL
Physologists have song known that
many sensions ordinarily ascribed
to taste are in reality due to smell.
but this fact has been made clearer;
than before by the investigations of
German savants. Air enter-s the ol
factory chamber, where the nerves
onnected with the sense of smell are
entered, both through the nostrils
and through an Inlet leading from the
mouth. In consequence a breath of
perfumed air manifests its odor not
only when it is breathed In, but when
It is breathed out. For this reason we
are sometimes deceived as to the
source of the pleasure we derive from'
things taken Into the mouth. the agree
ableness of the impression being due,1
in some cases, rather to smell than to

the Spaniards on the island. There
.was much doubt, however, as to
whether or not it was possible to kill
a Spaniard. Many of the natives in
sisted that it was not. Finally it was
decided to make an experiment.
A young Spaniard who was passing
through an Indian village was hosp!ta

his journey. When he arrived at a

that they stumbled by accident and
calling upon him to arise and continue
his journey. But the young man did
not move, and finally the natives were
convinced that he was actually dead.
