The destruction of forest timber ty

ana nll powdered salt
petre. He then plugged up the holes,
and on examining them some weeks
afterward be found that the salt had
been entirely absorbed. He replenished
the holes two or three times and waited
to see the trees wither. Instead ot this,
to his great regret, he found that they

his opinion that he could not have read
the recipe correctly. The Canadian,
however, told him that he waa quite
right Saltpetre was the only Ingre
dient used, snd thousanda ot acres were
cleared by Its use In Canada What had
to be done, however, after the salt
had been carried through the trees was
to rlngbark them, and when they were
dead to fire them. The Woody Point
man set to work and carried out the
rlngbarklng. When the treea Were
quite dead be set them on Ore. with the
result that the trees burned completely
out even to the farthest tips ot the
roots. Before all were burned out
heavy ralna came on and awamped the

Experiments with winter wheat un
der the direction ot the Ontario Agri
cultural union give reaulta which mar
be summarised aa followa:
1. In average yield per acre, Daw-
son's Clolden Cbaff stood highest
among eleven varieties tested over On
tario In 1H93, among nine varletlea in
each of the years 1694, 18C and 186,
and among seven varieties In each of
the years 1897, IBIS and 1899.
2. In the co-operative experiments
for 1899. Stewart's Champion Boarded
Winter Fife, and Dawaon'a Oolden
Chaff came through the winter the beat,
the Golden Drop the poorest.
S. Early Red Clawaon ana Imperial
Amber were the first, and the Bearded
Winter Fife and Btewart'a Champion
were the last, to mature In 1899.
4. Dawaon'a Uolden Chaff and Early
Qoneasee Qlaut possessed the stronguat
straw, aud the Bearded Winter Fife the
weakest in the teats ot the present
6. Htewart'a Champion and Beard
ed Winter Fife produced the longest,
and the Golden Drop the ahorteat,
straw In 1899.
6. Iu the co-operative experiments
of each ot the paat alx years, Dawson's
Golden Chaff was one ot the least, and
the Early Geueesee Giant was one of
the moat, affected by rust.
7. In 1899 all varletlea were practi
cally free from smut, as tba seed used
wus so free from smut spores.
8. Stewart's Champion and Daw-
sou's Golden Cbaff produced the plump
est, and Imperial Amber and Early Red
Clawsou the most shrunken, grain In
this year's tests.
9. Btewart'a Champion and Daw-
aou'a Golden Chaff were the mo.it popu
lar varieties, and the golden drop the
least populur, with the experimenters
