Orchard Orchard, la Cok? Tallaya,
We furnished to the public many
years ago a full statement of many in
stances! iu w hich crops of half tender
fruits, such as peaches and nectarines.
were destroyed by the frosts of winter
when planted in sheltered ralleys, while
those on exposed hills escaped. The soil
was nch in the valleys and favorable to
the free growth of "the trees; and shel
tered from the bleak winds of elevated
grounds, they were erroneously supposed
oy some persons to be safer there than
on more exposed localities. The cold
air on sharp winter nights, made heavier
by the exposure, rolled down the sides
of the valleys, and filled the bottom
ith a lake of cold air, while warmer
air remained above. The accomnanving
figure represents this result distinctlv.
vi have known a difference in sixty
feet uf altitude to make all the difference
between an uninjured crop of peaches
on the hill, and its entire destruction at
he bottom of the valley. This effect is
inrreaseU. and the trees as well as the
crop sometimes destroyed on account of
lie rank and Kiicculent Rrowth in the
richer soil Itelow. rendering them liable

against the frost. I: .tnietimes hap-

and water soaked piece of ground.
In a climate of milder winters, and
where the peach crop is never killed by
weather below aero, a late English
writer aavs: ! do not bvlieve in plant
ing fruit trees in tbe bottom of valleys.
bis is often done to secure the rich
soil. But it is of little benefit to the
grower to realize n strong growth and
an abundant flowering, if his crop is de
stroyed in the flowering by the spring
frosts which has repeatedly happened
the last few years in certain localities."
This further illustrates the same diffi
cultythat of fronts in valleys for ten-
er prow tli.
In all cases, whether high or low In
situation, thorough underdrainage should
be always given to the ground where
orchards are to be plauted, unless a good
natural drainage already exists with the
soil. Tin we who are about setting out
new peach and other orchards the pres
ent autumn, or preparing the land and
trees for them next spring, will find it
advantageous to select situations least
subject to sharp valley frosts, and to pro
vide in advance ample drainage. Coun

A writer in Field and Farm opens a
rather novel line for a farmer by argu
ing that prices of farm produce are high
enough! He aims to prove it thus:
'Potatoes, bread and meat are fully
as high today as the people who con
sume can afford to pay. The laborer of
America counting the three hundred
and sixty-five days in the year, and after
deducting lost time, does not receive to
exceed one dollar and a half per day
Now, as each laborer male or female
must necessarily support and feed three
persons, it will be allowing but a half a
dollar per capita per diem to maintain
tbe laboring population of America.
"Taking this view of tbe matter, we
must conclude that the present price of
produce is as high as the toiling masses
can stand. When the prices go much
higher than they are now there will be
suffering in the workshops and bread
riots In the cities."
This grand Shire stallion won tbe cham
pionship of tbe Shire Horse show for his
owner in the spring, and we have very
great pleasure in giving his portrait, the
one we use being that given in tbe offi
cial report on the show issued by the
Shire Horse society. Vulcan 4143 was
bred bv Mr. John Whitehead, of Medlar
ball, Kirkbam, Lancashire, from whom
he was purchased by the Earl of Elli

spring, visitors hardly knew which to
admire most, his gay style and carriage.
