Inoculation—Not for the Small Pox.
Inoculation is so simple, tint no one
who aspires to the most comaiou place
acquirements of rural life shoild be ig
norant of the process.
In the first place it is an absolute
condition that the stock and the bud
should be of the sume genus of plants,
and '.hat the stock should be in a grow

bark, aud lhe healing ol the wound.
As a general rule all the stone fruits
will assimilate and all the 6eed fruits
of '.he same genus and species, w ith
some exceptions. The apple aud the
pear do not form a healthy granulation.
The Heart and other improved varieties
of the cherry do not wont well ou the
Kentish or common red, aud will not
grow bu ihe w ild black cherry, but free

All the Rotes work together, and no

with all the beautiful productions ol
that data of flower.

" Mr. Irving w ill give us not only the
