SOCRAPING TREs -Do we approve of
scraping Trees? asks a friend of ours
Certainly we do, provided they need It,and
one can rarely find an old tree that does
not. Aside from the fact that that the
removal of the old bark-scales breaks a
refuge for various insects, including the
Woolly-aphis, the increased beauty of the
tree repays the trouble. There are scrap
ere made for the purpose; one of these has
a triangular blade, another a long .>lade,
with one flat and another slightly concave
edge. An old hoe is quite as good a tool
as any; cut off the handle to about 18
inches, and do not grand the blade. too
shtrp, as a cutting Implement is not need
ed-only a scraper. On a very old trunk
some force may be needed to detach the
scales that are partly loose, but on young
trees be 3areful not to wound the healthy
bark. Whe there cones a moist, drizzly
spell, go over the scraped bark with good
soft soap, made thin enough with water to
apply.with a brush, Paint over a thick
coat of this soap aud leave the rest to the

CONTROLLI TnR HomIs.-The reins
may guide the horse, the bit may inspire
him by its careful maniplilation, and tire
wip may urge him forward to greater
ainbition; but the huuan voice is more po
tent than all tiere agencies. Its assuring
toms will more quickly diepel his fright;
its severe reproaches will more effectually
check his insubordination; its sharp. clear
electric commands will more thoioughly
arouse his ambition, -ml its gentle, kindly
priics will more completely encourage
the intelligunt roaa horse than the united
forces of the bit and reins and the lash.
