OF JAN. 1, 1863
11 TV j earn iiro on tho lut
of .lau.lary, 1803, the eman
cipation proclamation was Ih
Niied. TIiIh was the culmlnnt-
iiilf act or.Abi-nluim IJucoln'a life, the
ono for which ho will bo longest re
membered. There la abundant evi
dence to hIiow that ho contemplated
the Mop long Itoforo It wuh taken.
After hla careful muuner, he reuaoned
the (piCMtlon out from every poHolblu
Htandpolnt, velKhlnK tho effectn of hla
Tliu proceaioa of tho ujeut umaucl
lator'N mind were revealed to hla
friend I.eonnrd Hwott. whom ho sent
for to call at the Whlto House. There
Mr. Lincoln read to him several letter
eonceruliiK emunnlpatlon, then arKued
out the whole question In the preaunco
of IiIh hoanir, iih If thlnkliii; aloud. IIo
thou torinlniitcd tho interview. TIiIh
wiih lu the summer of 18(12. Shortly
thereafter, on July U2, ho called to
Ket her tho cabinet to consider the sub
ject. To Frank It. Carpenter, the art
ist who painted "The Kirst IteadliiK of
the Kuiiiuclpntloii IMocliimutloii," Mr.
"I said to tho cabinet that 1 bad re
solved upon this step and had not
railed them together to ask their ad
vice, but to lay the subject mutter of
a proclamation before them burkch
IIoiin as to which would bo In order
after they had heard It read."
It was two months to a day, how
over, heforo this preliminary draft was
Klvcu to (lie public. Secretary Howard
tinted that It should not bo ulvou out
until there wuh n Union victory. This
appealed to tho president ns Rood tac
tics, ho It was withheld till after the
battle of Antletam nnd was published
on Sept. 1".'. lu effect It proposed that
alter 100 days tho slaves of nil thone
remnliilmr In rebellion should be freed
aa u war measure. Tho hundred day
period expired on Jan. 1, and the flnul
emancipation proclamation waa Issued
on that day,
Kor this Htnp Mr, Lincoln took the
sole Initiative nnd the undivided re
HK)iislblllty. freeing the Hlaves aa a
war measure was a strateKlc move.
Merely us president of tho United
States Mr. Lincoln bud uo power to
emancipate the slave. Hut as com
tnandor In chief of the army and navy
during a war he had unqueatloued
power to take the property of the ene
my, a right that had been recognised
from time Immemorial.

Young Woody Fruits And
A great many amateur gardenors
express disappointment because their
woody fruit plants do not come Into

laled upon, Of courso thero may be
Individual lbcal conditions that, are re
sponsible for this tardiness; the soil
may lie too wet(or unsuitable, the trees
or bushes may suffer from the attacks
of insects or ot'ficr plant enemies, or
the gardener may not handle tho sub
jects properly, Perhaps, however, the
principal reason for failure Is lu the
choice of the plants themselves. Quite
opart from nny'nucstlon of soil fertll
ty, moisture supply or handling, Is the
question of age f tho stock purchased.
No doubt the.deslro of every garden
er la to have his plants como Into
bearing as earjy ns possible. In or
der to secure this desired end, there
fore, preference. Is given to large-sized
plants for setting out In the fruit plan

agent Is to blamo for overruling tho
better Judgment of the gardener, who
may know, buj. not know definitely
enough that young plants can bo trans
planted with more certainty of success
than can old and largo ones.
It fs not true, that large plants will
produce fruit-earlier or even as early
as younger plants properly taken care
of. Tho reasons aro that the longer a
plant remains In tho nursery row, the
larger its roots will become and tho
greater must necessarily bo the
amount of root surface cut off when
the tree Is dug for shipment to the
orchardlst. A's a consequence, the tree
suffern greatly, especially if tho top Is
not severely pruned bock by the plant
er at the time of planting to balance
tho reduced root-surfaco. Unproonod
trees frequently fall becauso the leaf
surface transpires water faster than
the disabled root area can gather It.
Preference should always bo given to
tho younger tree or shrub tor those
Too gfeat emphasis can not be plac

young woody fruit trees. Tho grower

much less than the largo plant. Not
only all these, but he will In 99 cases

begin to produce fruit.
It Is a good plan for tho amateur to
follow the practise of tho professional
fruit, growor as nearly as ho can. os
pcclally In thn choice of his nurecrj
stock. No commercial fruit gorwei
thinks of buying applo, pear, chorry
or plum tree oldor than two years
from tho bud. A vory largo number
prefer to buy those kinds of trees on
ly ono year from the bud. This term,
"from tho bud" means that tho plant
has been grown In the nursery row
for two seasons, after the bud of thS
desired variety has been Inserted In
a seedling stock, either ft root graft
(as In tho enuo of apples and poara)
or a young seedling (as In the case
of plums and cberrlos). There Is
no difference of opinion as to the
peach; all peach growers aro agreed
that a ono year old tree Is as old as it
Is desirable i to choose, In the South,
where ".lunn budded" poach trees can
