NSARLY every farimer has to provide
himself with extra help during the
haying season. Of course the almost
univerdal introduction of labor-saving
machinery has made a vast difference
in this regard; nevertheless one or
more additional men are still required
upon any farm of every considerable ex
tent through haying time. Such being
the ease it is expedient to look out in
season and secure such help as is prolit
able. One good man who has his heart
in his work, who is eareful, industrious
and intelligent, knowing what to do
an I how to do it, is worth -two or
tnree half-hearted, shiftless laborers,
whose only care is to pass away the time
and secure their wages. In fact, the
less of the latter kind one has about
him the better oir he will be. It is bet
ter to pay a good hand two dollars per
day foi his services in haying than two
poor ones a dollar each, setting aside
entirely the little matter of board,
which is something of an item, as it
will invariably be found that the man
who Is a shiftless laggard in the lei
wilt "keep his end up" and a little more
at the table. It Is best, therefore, to
look out in season for good help. If
you know of the right man secure him
at once, even if his price is high, rather
than wait until haying is right upon
you and then bc compelled to take up
with any strolling Frenchman or
worthless tramp who happens to come
TitEE PRUNmN.-The0 tree butcher,
who passes himself off for at pruner, de
serves imprisonment the remainder of
his days. In pruning fruit trees there
are several objects. One of these is to
have the top proportioned to the
strength of the trunk and roots; anoth
or Is to mako the tree shapely; a third
Is to remove injured, diseased and
chating twigi and alibs, and fourth to
improve the quality of the fruit by pro
venting, as ctie trees are apt to in this
ellimate and country, an over-produc
tion. Tho butcher to whom we refer
has no Idea of any of these things.
With his saw and his prunin4 knife lie
cuts and whittles until the object of
his apparent wrath Is neither tree, bush
nur anything else. Tie whole top is

Ltwoiny or thirty feet that a fifteen or
twenty-year-old tree should have, it li
reduced to eight or fen; and in place of
far-reaching, graceful limbs it is loft

le.alless stumps, reachlng out from tbe
trunk from six inches to three feet.

iight was coining on, and he was in
milnent danger of being swamp d
md finding a watery grave. What
ould he do? Evidently, nothing of
imself; so he knelt down and prayed
ong and fervently for deliverance.
le placed himself in the hands of the
ord, and so was saved. So he passed
rom one tilng to another, and at last
he sermon was, finished. lie raised

Shellac from Oaltorn(a.-At a recent
neeting of the California Academy ol
3cience, Professor Stillman read a pa.
mer on the gum and coloring matter
'ound on the Acacia Greggit and the
5arrea.exeicana or creosote plant. The
gum which exudes from these plants Is
rery abundant, and is the product
inown to commerce as shellac. The
iame plants produce lao dye. Profet.
ior Stillman suggested that Californh
night compete watn British India ir
iupplylig this valuable product. Mr
B. Ls. Redding said that these lao-yield
4ag plants were as plentiful as sage
brush from Southern Urth to New
Uexico, and from the Colorado Deser
o Western Texas. The lao is moia
Lbundant around stations on the Mo
ave and Colorado deserts, and exulea
is the result of an insect's sting. Cal.
)utta exports a million poun(s sterling
,n value annually of snellac, selling
it 25 to 35 cents a pounds, and alimces
ts much more of lao dye, selling at 3(
;o 40 cents a pound. In 1876 the Uni
;ou States imported 700,000 pounds o
Ihelac alone. To collect this is simpil
vork for boys, and m-ty prove an impor
