The faeet that there is a great dif.
firesee Ia the lastag qgalties of
fece pos set ges, sad these
that are t 1 aesseud, or that there
is any preferace, a to the season
for eattlag, i tee o ofte entirely
overlooked by fhrmers; they use
posts just as they chanee to have
then; if they have them on hand all
seaseoed at the time they wish to
onue them, they set them, but if not,
and they have them growing, they
will eut them aad set them green.
This is not good economy, for a post
eat green and full of sap will not
season well in moist earth, but in
stead of drying it will soon begin to
decay. It is better to season posts
that are to be set in the earth, at
least one year before setting; by so
doing they will last nearly twice as
long as posts out at the same sea
son of the year, and set green; bnut
a post out tn September, and Net
green, will probably last nearly, if
not quite as long as one ant in
Martd or April, and seasoned a
year before setting.
There are more farmers that know
that it is not econoomy to set green
posts than there are that know that
there is a great preference as to the
meason of cutting. Timber, to be
good, should be ent soon after it
has made its growth for the season;
then the sap lias formed into wood,
leaving it comparatively dry; but if
cut the latter part of winter or the
first of spring the sap is flowing up
through all parts of the wood in
suech quantities as to make it very
diffMeult to dry it; hence its increas.
ed liability to decay.
Farmers who cat their own fence
pIsta should look ahead far ennouiglh
to enable them to ent them at the
right time, and lnave them seasoned
when they want them for tme.
For reasons that do not appear
very clearly to us, it is found by ex
periment that posts will last longer
if the top be set in tlhe ground.
Some give as a reason for this that
the moistare from the earth is more
readily drawn up in a iost set in
the natural 'ay, than if reversed.
Admitting this to be true, and that
the water thus drawn up causes the
post to decay, why will not the do
aeceding rain enter the large cnd of
the post, wheni reversed, and keep
the post even more nmoist than when
set the other enld up I ? ia a question
that has often occurred to na. But
whatever the cause, there seems to
be good evidence that a post set top
deown will .leat longer tlhan one set
the buatt end down.
The more difficult it iecomen to
get fence posts the closer shouli ihe
the attenition paid to entting, sea.
