of blanching is by means of boards

A horse that has been worked 12
to 15 hours during the day is entitled

oats, divided into three meals, and
from eight to ten pounds of hay, given

Tho apple maggot is one of tho
greatest menaces to the apple culture
and is one of the most difficult pests
to eradicate. It Inhabits the Interior
of tho fruit and to destroy it means
the destruction of the apple itself.
To exhaust the land as little as pos

Fall is a good tlmo to give tho
