PLAKTno FRUIT TBBEI.
The following suggestions by Andre w S. Ful
ler, are especially valuable:
In planting tree, of all kinds there are certain
rolea aud conditions that should be romembered
and practiced.
1. Plant early, before the spring rains are over
nit thn anil nettled and drv. Therejs little dau-
ger of doing this work too early in the spriug,
provided the eoil is in a condition to handle readily-
2. In removing tree, either large or small,
mure or less roots will bo cat off or broken; con
sequently, a corresponding nninber of the bran
ches ahonld be rcmnincd ir shortened. It is al
wa)S safe to give tbe roots tbe advantage by
reducing the branches, leaving less top than
root, esitccially with decidnona trees.
3. In removing tree like maple, bircb,- and
'similar Linda, fiom wlilrli I he sali flows freely
Nfroui tbe wonnds mado on stem or branches in
spring, always dig np and cut loose ine rooia
Trom Jho. soil before nruuing, becanie this pre
vent excessive bleeding, a it is termed. Grape
vines are no exception to this rule, nllhough
many persons think, it will not do to prnue them
in tht spring, even if they are transplanted at
the time.
4. Iu planting always pack the will firmly
nbovn the root .,f trees, and also can-fully till
np all tuterntice between tbem.
5. In removing trees from one place to another
and during the operation of planting, ke-p the
roots moist, and exclude them as much as possi
ble from drying wiuds and the direct rays of the
inn.- ,
C. Arrange the roots in a natural position, ilrs
cctjdlog from the stem outward, and pjacrjliem
ho deeper than they were originally. Of course
allowance mnst bo made for tbe lome soil with
which they are covered in beminn compact.
"7. Largo trees arith fJw brtcorioi rrqnire

push ont into tho soil.

Silver Slople A at Shade Tree.
From its very rapid growth, and making so
qnick a shade, as well as cheapness, this vnriety
of maple is more extensively planted both in
town and conntry, than any other. It has alirn
tbo merit of being extremely hardy. In Ihn
conntry, it is not attacked by insects, aud iu the
cities is not destroyed by tbem.
Its demerit, as usually managed, is that it is
not a compact tree, beiug lose aud open iu the
head, and its long branchr and soft wood nro
often terribly injured and broken by storm's. To
remedy both these and make of silver maple a
really beautiful shade tree, with a head nearly
as compact as a Norway maple or horse rheitirnt,
it is only necessary to shorten in tho branches
with polo prnuing tdiears, not ouly early in the
spring, but twice at least afterward, when iu
leaf, and wheuever the long pendant branches
arc inclined to spread beyond proper limits. It
bears such pulling back well, and we have seen
it trimmed into an oval, round, or pyramidal
shape, and make a beautiful tree. For planting
ou avenues or io iuhko a qiucK Miaoearonmi ii'
buildings, or for protection, the silver maple is
remarkably well adapted, and cannot be spared.
Were it not so common and cheap it would be
more admired. The leaf is really very pretty,
especially the silvery appearance on the under
side, and by thorough aud repeated trimming as
proposed, it will deserveto have n place among
our finer ornamental trees.
The silver maple has alv another advantage
over the wlvcr poplar, and other fant growing
trees, in that it does not throw up suckers.
Growing IIrd;ra.
Arc our farmers paying enough attention to
their growing hedges! After several years ob
servation of growing hedges in Kansas, e are
thoroughly convinced that no good substantial
stock can begronn from osage orange without
care and attention.
We noticed many hedges hereabout being neg
lected iu culture and training both. Tbo hedge
law will not always last, it behoves every
farmer to remember. Hedge fences can be suc
cessfnlly grown iu Kansas in the course f from
three to five J cars, owing entirely- to the train
ing aud culture. Hedge rows should have as
much attentiou as rows of corn cultivated and
kept clear of weeds. Besides, to make a solid
fence, care must bo taken not to allow the body
of the hedge to get away from the ground. Keep
your hedges well trimmed down until they are
matured. Tho closer tho limbs are to the.foot of
the stalk or ground, tbe better hedge yon will
have. After a hedge b3 oneo ctowh taril and
rne-fli!. no labor will ever mako it a "nic-
tigbt" fence. There are hundreds of miles of
hedge now growing iu this anil adjoining cosn-tie-t,
but we tell the owners they uever will have
fences unless they care well for the hedge tho
first three years. Another thing, a well set and
matured osage orange fence may be killed by
freezing, or tire bnt it' will stand until the roots
have sent up among tho old shrub as good a
new fcuco as tho old ouo was. ITiclii'ii Eagle.
Tcatiuc Seeds.
Now that spring and tbe plautiug sea sou aro
approaching, it is often important to test tbn
vitality of seeds before sowing tbem. The fol
lowing is given as a simple aim easy mcinou ue
scribed: Fill a box, pan or flower pot partly
with rich, mellow earth, make tbe upper surface
perfectly smooth, and on this surface draw
straight cross lines, aud drop a seed at each in
tersection, so that they may bo easily counted.
Then take a hoop or framo, and make a bottom
to it with cloth stretched across, so as to resem
ble a sievo. Place this npon tbe seed, and fill it
with enough Sun mould to form a sufficient cov
ering for seed, which should generally be four or
live times tbs diameter of the seed fur tbe depth.
Keep the soil sufficiently mnint and iu a warm
place. The sieve can be lifted easily and tbe
seeds examined without distnrbing them. In
this way com, wheat.cluver seed, turnip seid and
many other kinds can be easily tested, which
may be of considerable importance where the age
or ircshuess of tbo seed is not certainly kuown.
IVcwepnpers as Plant Protectors.
A writer in tho EnglUK Gardcatr't Seeotd, says:
"The weather is often so variable in early spring,
that, ei en under the most favorable circumstan
ces, the gardener is frequently puzzled. Just as
the gardener is indulging in tbe comfortable
anticipation of a nights rest, the stars begin to
peep out one by one till tbe whole firmament is
slndded over with them; frost again commen
ces. Newspapers will relievo him of much of
his care, no may spreau mrm over uis piauis
at nightfall iu uncertain weather; tbo labor is
slight; and, being so light, they will uot injnre
tbe most delicate growths; aud I know, from ex
perience, that thty will exclude a considerable
amonnt of frost. Tbey are also most useful iu
hard frosts as aids to the fires and inside frauic',
with or without mats." This is not new to maiiy
of our readers, but the suggestion may be ofscr
vico to suute.
Sonklnc Seeds.
One of the best methods of preparation of
seeds for an early start is to soak tbem in dilu
ted liquid mauure. Hen dung is much recom
mended for t his purposerfiometimeo soaked seeds
IIU I1UL U'UIU ll'lllilIU, VI IHh l" ".- ,,,., vm.
frequently it is the case that tbe seeds are not
atteuneu to, uni are anoweu toiieai, or euiuo
times to get dry, before tbey are sown. Auother
point is to have, for small seeds, tbe soil iu a
warm, friable condition; if tbe seeds are soaked
aud he soil itself is pressed down close to the
seed, by rolling, or tbe hoe, when tbe sowing is
doue.it will make u material difference iu the
time which thry take to sprout; and, besides
saturated iirutecU tbem from tbo attack of

Plastiso nAsrBERRlM. A correspondent of
the London Collage Gardener says mat ne na a
method of planting raspberries which he consid
ers superior to any other. Tbe ground is tho
ronghlv prepared by the time the stickers are
about a foot or fifteen inches high- He selects
thestrougest suckers that are well rooted, and
is particular to have a good fibrous root, with a
good collar, altbongh tbe leaves are small. The
holes are dng aud three plants put in each, in a
trianle, about niue inches apart, spreading the
roots out uicelv; fill iu the soil, give a good
watering, and the work In done. He says that
be has tried various, ways of planting, bnt none
have succeeded as well as this.

This will be the second wedding at the White
House since it was built for the use of tho chief
magistrate. The first was that of President
Monroe's daughter, Miss Maria Monroe, who
married her consiii. Mr. Gon venieur, of New York,
iu March, lSiO. In that delightful book, the
biography of William Wiiislnu Sealon, the fol
lowing mention of this wedding occurs iu ouo of
Mrs. Seaton's letters:
Maria Monroe is to be married on Tnesdaj- to
her cousin, young Gomrrnour. The following
day a brilliant drawing-room will be heh' mid
the immense ball-room opened. Tbe mairiagc

Under date of March 23th, 13C0, Mrs. Seaton
wrties:
The New Yoik Rtjle was adopted at Maria
J'onn.c's wedding. Ouly the attendants, tho re
lations and a few old friend of tho bride and
groom witnessed tbe ceremony; an! tho brides
maids were told that their company would bo
diapensed with until thn following Tuesday,
when the bride would receive viit"rs. Accord
ingly, all whnrvisit at the President's paid their
respect to Mrs. Gonrenieur, who presided in hrr
mother's place on this evening, while Mrs. Mon
roe mingled with the other citizens. Every vi-i-tor
was led to the bride and introduced in all
form. But the bridal festivities have reached a
check, which will prevent any further aiteiitiou
to tho President's family, ill the murder of Deca

ou so fatal a catastrophe to the man identified
with the glorious success of hiseouutry iu the
late war.
As weddings occur at the White Honso fifrv
fonr years apart, let us hnpo that nothing will
occur to disturb the festivities iu honor of tbe
coming event.
It the history ot the White House tells of but
one wedding, it tells of many funerals, 'lwo
Presidents have died within its walli. and a
third assassinated (eWewhern,) laid "iu state" to
bold his last "levee" in the east room. Several
children have died there, aud only one birth has
occurred. This oue baby of tbe White Houm
was the son. James Madisun, of Mrs. Randolph,
who was herself the danghtcr of Thomas Jeffer

at full sail a green cotton umbrella, experienced
great difficulty in getting through a crowd on
Fulton street, night before last. She left seven
men batless, raromed tbe chignons off three
fashionable youug ladies, sawed a newsboy's ear
iu two, and scalped a blind aecordenn fiend who
had just come over fmni Heboken. As'she tnmed
back and surveyed the wreck she murmnred,
"Gracious sakes! ain't yon barbarians no re
spect for age!"
A baxk-lock, which works by clock-work, and
can't be opened except at certain bonrs even by
tbn owners, is une of tbe latest inventions.

The death last week by hydrophobia, or what
was so called, of a lady whose professional name
was Ada Clare, has been the means of causing a
good many people to sbndder at tbe very-sight
of a dog. The lady iu question was nursing a
tiet dog, which had been sick and therefore was
irritable, wheu the animal snapped at her nose
and lacerated it with bis teeth. The wound was
dressed, but iu tbe course of a month the injured
womau, having atUmpted work on tbe stage
when her physical condition was weak, was at
tacked with convnlsiont which put an end to
her lire. Tbe symptoms of ber malady were
those of hydrophobia. Bnt it is an open ques
tion wbetberor notthebiteof the dog would
have proved fatal had tbo nervous system of the
lady not liecn depressed and bail her miud not
been harassed by ber peculiar duties as a not
over successful member of tbe dramatic profes
sion. It is a well known fact tLat imagination
is oflru tbe thief seat of disease, especially of
the kind known as rabies. Nervous persons
wheu bilteu by perfectly healthy dogs dwell
upon tbe nutter so ranch as to faucy tbey inn
late almost every symptom of hydrophobia. We
do not say tbat Ada Clare fell to ravin sitnply
becanse she bad tortured her mum wun me ap
prehension that she had contracted hydrophobia,
because we have not snfncieut knowledge of the
case to warrant a positive aserlinn to this effect.
But we would cautiou tbe public against work
ing itself into a fever over tbe report tbat ber
malady was hydrophobia in reality, aud tint
heightened ill the least by a morbid imagination.
Because a pet dog inflicted tbn bite which' pre
siimably caused her death, it is not necesiarj to
wage nn iudiscriniate war against the canine
pets of the hoiise'iidd. The chances of a person
being bitten by a dogare not very numerous, and
of those who are so bitten, it is estimated that
not over one in tweutvbve contract diease. It
is well rnosgb, however, to reflect ou tbe matter,
and to adopt a policy which will keep our xds
from madness. As a usual thing, the larger the
dog tbe Irss likely it is to become rabid, maiuly
for tbe reason that dogs of great substance and
strength are not fed on sweetmeats aud kept iu
the heated a'niosphere of onr sleeping acd sit
ting rooms. They live ont of doors, havn plcnty
of exercise and fresh air, and are fud ou whole
some fiod. Those of you wh-i love your pets aud
who value joarow.i safety, should not cram
tbem with pastry an" sweetmeats, and jealously
gnaid them from evety wiud which sighs or whis
tles aroiiudyour hours. Scud your dogs ont of
the parlor every day, and let them have a good
run iu tbe open air, and fted thsm with plain
food at.regnlar hour. One of the prime causes
of hydrophobia iu Ibis country, and especially
in the city, is the uuti-gratificatiun of sexual de
sire. Deny tbe dog a natural privilege, and it
is not strange tbat tbey should behave in an un
natural way. In Kgypt, where Ihe sun is hot
enough to mako the shade grateful at all times,
the dogs live ill tho opeu air, males aud females
herd iu such numbers as to fairly block the way,
and the rabies is an unknown malady. The
canse is apparent tn the most careless observer.
Sexual desire is gratified, the air and sunshine
are enjoyed, while food is neither rich nor abun
dant. m aa a
Cae of Phoapherns in "-fearalgia,
A valuable paper has been contributed by Dr.
J. Ashburton Thompson to the lractitoer on
the use of phosphorus in neuralgia, large doses
being emplotrd by him for this purpose, and
with marked success. He records eighteen cases,
ard arranges tbem in three classes acnto pri
mary attacks, (.utile recurrent attacks.ancl chronic
cases. Six rases occur iu each class. In the
litst class, the ages ranged between twenty five
and forty-six; in the second, between thirty and
sixty; in tbe third, between twenty four and
forty. Some of the patients suffered from tri
geminal, some from cervico-occipital, some from
cervico-bracbial neuralgia, aud one iu tho sec
ond class fiom sciatica. All the cases iu the first
tn o classes were curid; of the third class, three
n ere curtd, oue uf the patients having been afflic
ted sixteen years without a wick s freedom from
pain; two, both consumptive, were relieved; nud
ono uncomplicated caso. a woman aged forty,
with affection of the fifth nerve of teu mouths'
duration, failed to be benefited, although ehe
was treated for fifteen days. As might be ex
pected, the chronic cases took longest to cure;
but in all the cases helped, relief followed the
first few doses.
Itrd Aula.
An old lady in Connecticut, who has read the
Obtercer frou'i the.fc7gmiiil.g, writes as follows:
"Some time since the Obterrer asked what
would rid bouses of little red ants. There have
been a great many answers, none of which arc
correct according tvuiy experience. The auts
lanuot get over a chalk mark balf an inch wide.
I learned that fact from my lumber more than
fi rty years ago, and I have tested it a
great many times and always found it true. Ouly
Inst year these ants came iuto our milk room and
nearly covered oue pan of milk. I bad to throw
it to thecbickeus; but I washed off the shelf and
made a chalk mark all around it, and we have
nut had auother ant ou the milk-shelf nor in the
room siucc.
I am seventy-eight years old to-day, and iu
fair health. In this village street, within sight
and almott within call from our house, there are
living live persons who are each over ninety
years old, and tbey arc not iiilirm. We call this
a healthy place. "B."

Eating; Halt frith .tula.
"Ono time," says a writer, " whilst enjoying a
visit from an Englishman, hickory nuts were
served iu the evening, when my English friend
asked fur salt, stating that he knew tho case of
a womau eating heartily of nuts in the evening,
who was taken dangerously ill. The celebrated
Dr. Abernetby was sent fur, but it was after he
bad become rather too fund of his cups. He mut
tered 'Salt, salt,' of which no notice was taken.
Next morning he went to the place, aud sbe was
dead. Ho said tbat had they given her salt it
wonld have relieved her. If they would allow
him to u ft e an examination, he would convinco
them. On opening the stomach, tbe nuts were
found iu a mass. Ho sprinkled salt on this, and
immediately it dissolved. I have known of a
sudden death myself which appeared to bo from
the same canse. I generally eat salt with iniue,
and I think it improves tbem."
How lo Car m lan with tbe Dorse Diaeaoe.
Tt Ike Editor of Ihe Air Tort Sun :
Silt: Tbe idea among many of tbe present
time, "tbat there is danger ahead of men (jetting
the malady now raging among horses," is no
vain talk, but founded on facts. Experience has
taught me that in such cases tbe only remedy to
rave a man from a painful death is to make him
inhale every two hoirs, through tbe nostrils, a
mixture of twenty-uinc drops of ether capsici,
(made with sulphuric ether aud the berries of
tbe Cap$ieum caceotma.) and one drop of plienic
acid, which ingredients are poured iuto a half
ounce phial, and then inhaled by the patient
through the nose, (like ladies' perfumery.) This
will check the destroying agent in mau, and bis
life will 1m saved. I am a witness to the great
virtneof tbe rrmesivJLbare mentioned above.

The Beat Medicine.
Dr. Hall says the test medicines in the world,
more efficient in tbeenre of diseases, than all the
potencies of the materia medial, are warmth, rest,
cleanliness and pure air. Some persons make it
a virtue to brave ditease, to "keep np" as long
as they can move a foot or crook a finger, and it
sometimes succeeds; bnt in others tbe iowcrs of
life are thereby so completely exhausted that
the system has Inst ability to recuperate, and
slow and typhoid fever sets iu and carries the
patieut to a prematnrn grave. Whenever walk
king or working is an effort, a warm bed and a
cool room are tbe first indispensable steps to a
sure and speedy recovery Instinct leads all
beasts and birds to qnietnde and rest the very
mvment disease or wounds assail the system.
Sbort Hair for Womes axd Childcex. The
American JgricnltitrUt has qnite a lengthy article
advocating short hair for women and children.
This seems to be tbe opposite extreme from Iba
present load of rats, mice.jnte, cnrl papers, and
frizzing pins. A less sweeping reform we might
all advocate. A woman's own hair, becomingly
arranged, is a sight we long to see again; but
we cannot willingly give np tbe old idea that
long bair upon woman is a glory nnto her.
Self Workisg Yeast. Marion Harland, in
ber "Common Sense in the Honsehnld," gives a
formula for "self working yeast." So oue can
makegiKd, lively yeast ont on tbe prairie, miles
from-neighbors, withont tbe tnpposed inevitable,
"then add a tablespoonfnl of live yeast." The
following is the recipe: 8 potatoes, 2 oz. bops, 4
qts. cold water, a pound white sugar, 2 tables
poon ful salt.
Fixsn worms. Wash yonr face night and
morning in strong cologne water, and rub drv
with a coarse towel. Also take a thimbleful o'f
snlpbnrin aghusof milk, twice a week, before
breakfast". Continue the practice a cample of
weeks.
