Natqr.l and Distorted Orowth.
True taste cultivates an admiration
of beautiful natural forms; falso taste
distorts these into artifleial and gro
tesque concerts. A tree possessing nat.
ural and graceful symmetry cannot but
be pleasing to a true and cultivated
judgment; out or sheared into the
shape of a stiff oone, a .hay-cook, or a
peacock or bear, It becomes at once an
object of distorted unfitness. It is,
however, quite common, all through
the country, to see trees, and especially
evergreens, tortured into unnatural
forms. Most coinon of all is to trim
the trunk up to a bare sten five or six
feet or more high, giving the appear
ance of trees on stlits, instead of at.
lowing the graceful.sweep at the lower
branches on the surface of the lawn.
Others, again, are sheared back into
the appearance of a solid nines, and
where a number of trees are thus treat
el, the door-yard appears as if filled
with a number (f small hay-stacks.
Such practices may be fitly comparod
to pinching thb human body out of
shape, as pract:ced by semi-barbarom
people. If the trees threaten to grow
to large, and any cutting back is re.
quired, let it be done with a knife and
not with shears, so as to preserve, ik
some degree it least, the natural frec
ou:line. In soie land cape gardening,
arched galtways are represented and
conimended, where trees are bent out
of shape and shoared into tin natural
forms. I an arch of venduro in ust, b
had, let it be lie made of natural cllnb
ers and twiners, so as to partly but not
wholly conceal a prol)erly and simply
formed structure of iron or wood. iii
this way there would be no incongru.

the sight of solid and IIassive struc
tures attempted with so fragile and
delicato materials as flowers. Nearly
as unfit Is the attempt to build solid
gateway arches of delicate foliage.
There is another pracice, much less
objec-lonable, but still carried too far
the abundant planting of weeping
trees. These are mostly unnatural to
some extent, and if employed at all,
tihe most graceful should be selected,
and sparingly Introduced. They some

G iOwiYa Hoitse-RADISH.-I( we look
through our marketsand see the ohun ky
stui sold for hoi4e-radish, it is clear
that not one in a'hundred knows how to
grow it. Iorse-radish well grown is
as profitablo as any garden crop, but
we think there is not much prolit in the
scrubby stuif referred to. To have
good horse-radish, a rather heavy soil
should be chosen, but by no means
wet, though one which gardeners would
call damp and cool will be by no means
objected to. It cannot very well be
made too rich, and if subsolling the
ground Is todind favor it will stiroly be
in favor with this orop. Now tile ob

have long. clean, straight roots, and
good culture Is to get these. In raising

erlly pieces an inch or so long arc set
just beneath the soll, and one or more
buds start tip to make crowns with
leaves, and others go down to make a
root or roots. These are then forky or
twisted and give the wretched roots we
see. The proper way is to make holes
with a dibble, postapitde or crowbar so
as to let the small pieces which are to
inake plants go down a foot or more.
hen till in the holes and wait. The
result is thas in a couple of months a
