PLANTING PBUIT TBTTF.S.
At the late meeting of the New York Horticul
tural Society, held at Rochester, a paper was
read by J. 8. Woodward, of Lock port, entitled
Facts and Fallacies of Frait growing," from
which we make an extract, as it is iunnd in
fictSs Magazine. IU suggestions are reasonable
and worthy of attention and remembrance:
0o fallacy is more commonly believed titan
that any soil is fit for apple growing. The fact
is that no land U too good, and no location too
deairable for apples, and if we can't afford the
beat Milt for them, we had much better Dot plant
at all.
'It is fallacy in a market orchard to plant too
many varieties.
It is lallacymtnc selection oi trees io rito
more attention to the development of body and
top than to the root and collar.
"It is a popular fallacy that trees may be plan
ted almost any way, so that they are got in
the groand iu comparatively ntraigbt rows. I
know one instance when three men dug the
holes and planted twelve hundred trees in two
ilaia: in some rtlaces thev nsed a nine-inch poet-
auger to make the hole, and through the aid of
a verr wet summer must or tnotw trees nveu,
they have never made a satisfactory orchard.
The land should Ihs well prepared and the holes
dug not leas than one foot further across than
the longest roots extend, and deep enongh to re
ceive the tree to the depth it stood in the nurse
tt, and the soil below should be well loosened.
The planter should place the tree in position,
taking care that the rows be straight both ways;
he should then, by hand, carefully straighten
each shot, and see that the rich snrface soil fills
all spaces between them. With the same care
should the entire hole be filled and the soil carv
fnllr naekrd around the roota and bodr. More
than half the subsequent growth atd vigor of
the tree depends upon caret ui planting.
Another Terr jrnicious fallacy is the notion
that the trees shonld le planted close; that the
more trees to the acre the greater the profit.
Thirtv-six feet, and if thesoilisesnecullr adap
ted to ore naming, iony reel ts none iw iar
apart. We not only want the snn to shine on
all parts of the tree, bnt we want its beneficial
influence on the soil as well; there is nothing
good to kill the germs of diseaae and to sweeten
the soil a lid enable it to support the tree as sun
light. A grave fallacy U the belief that orchards
should, ne prnnea only at intervals oi several
years, and that any novice, however green, can
be trusted with the prnning-knife and yaw. An
annl h dwinlil Im reftilnrlr and Rvtttemati-
cally pruned each year from the planting, and
just enough to keep an opeu and symmetrical
head, and so that no time shall be utcrasary to
remove any larger limbs.
"The greatest of all fallacies is this, that af
ter having cropied the orchard from the plant
ing to full maturity, we may apply all the ma
nure to other parts of the farm, and leave the or
chard with only the decayed leaves and weeds
to maintain itsVertility.
"The quantity of manure that may be profita
bly used on an orchard in full bearing is hard to
determine. I have never seen an instance where
I thonght too much was used; instead of piling
it about the trees, a general application on the
whole surface nuder the trees is better.
More Green Peas, if you Please.
If there is anybody who does not enjoy good
green peas in abundance, we have never met
im or her. We bate them from May to Au
gust, fresh picked daily, of uniform growth, for
a single ripening pod injures the flaor of the
whole; and from Angnst to May, we have the
canned "La Favorita" variety, which, as we get
it, is next door to the fresh garden picked. It is
little trouble now to grow one's owu peas, early,
medium, and late varieties. Given a fair soil,
with some well-rotted manure, if it is needed,
and our programme rnns thus: Ju.t as sonu as
the snow is off and deep freezing Isnotexiiected,
and tiie ground drv enough to work at all, in go
the peas, even if the firstheads starting do get
a front nip pea will utand that. We plant
some "Improved Daniel O'Kuurke," and s,me
Alpha;" also some ofthe "American Wonder,"
ami some "Champion of England," all the same
dav. The first named is comparatively oor,
but cooked in milk with a trifle of sugar added,
it goes very well fur better than none. The
"Daniel O'lEourke" is early and prolific, but
needs a little brush as it grows 3 feet stalks. By
the time the O'Konrke and Alpha are eaten, in
comes the American Wonder, and a wonder it is
for its proliticuess, dwarf stem, no brnsh need
ed, and its superior eating quality the only
very early dwarf wrinkled H.a, and wrinkled"
applied to jteas is almost Huouniuus with giMd
quality (see page lJ last mouth). By the time
these eas go, along comes he king xx, "Cham
pion of England." There are others like it,
claimed to be better; this is good enough for us,
ami seed is ahundaut and cheap almost any
where now. But after the first sowing, and tor
two weeks, new sowings of the Wonder aud
Champion should be made every 4 or 5 days, to
keep up a constant succession. After two weeks
or so, follow with very frequent sowings of the
Champion, or if without brush, the Wonder, so
ns to have a daily nupply far into summer. As
fast as the neas are oil. other croiis, as cabba-re.
turnips etc, may occupy the ground. Alwajs

Seeding to Clover.
OurWst Kuccess has Wn in scattt-riuz the
seed oer growing wheat, on a cool morning ear-
Iv in .April, wnen an men uepm oi irosi opens
the ground in crack, into which the seed talis
aud is lightly cohered by the thawing earth.
Both this aud the wheat, but especially the clo
ver, are usually benefitted by a broadcast sowing
of ground plaster in May. So marked is this
sometimes, that one can write his name in large
letters with plaster Mowing, aud the letters w il
t distinctly visinie iu me more luxurious green,
when the clover plants, at first protected from
the sun by the wheat plants, liave a chance for
full growth after the wheat is cut. The expe
rience of many who raise much clover is, that a
good catch is most certain, if the seed is not
sown until the soil Is warm ami mellow. The
clover starts into growth at once, aud strong
plants are quickly obtained. The chief danger
of delay is that the still feebly rooted plants
may be canght by dry hot weather and killed.
While plaster is a good top-dressing for clo er on
most soils, if one's own experience or that of his
neighbor's docs not indicete this, other light top
dressing may e useful some soluble fertilizer,
as superphosphate or muriate of potasli. Clover
responds to any attention of this kiud, and
makes a good return in the mass of foliage aud
rich material it gathers from soil aud air ma
terial which, wheu plowed in, richly prepares
tho soil for other crops. Jmiriea Jgncitltttrht

About Sweet Peas.
What is more beautiful or more fragrant than
the old-fashioned Sweet-Peas J How rarely we
see them of late! It it true that the same thing
the intense summer heat which makes our
season df"gTeeu peas" rather short, also inter
feres with the sweet ea. Those who would
hae sweet peas should plant thorn early, aud
plant them deep. Three imh s of covering is
none too much, aud they should teputin as ear
ly as the soil is in condition to work. Of course
they must have something to climb ujHin. Pea
brushj such as is given to the ordinary garde u
peas, is perhaps the best, bnt, in the absence of
this, strings, wires, or w hatever will allow the
plants to climb for about three feet, must be pro
vided. The old-fashioned Sweet Pea ( fathtfru
odorat&t) has, iu the hands of European florists,
gieu a number of fiun varieties, the names tf
which will lie found in the catalogues of the
seeduien. Some of these have beautiful colom,
but noue are more fragrant than the eld sort.
Sweet peas are excellent flowers for cutting, as
they hae long stems, andtheyretain theirbeau
tv for very many das. To have sweet (teas at
their best, plaut early and plant deep. Amcrira
Jgricttltunt.
Sorghum as a Soiling Plant.
Sorghum promises to Iks a satisfactory plant
for use in summer feeding cows, aud also, proba
bly, for ensilage. Correspondents of several ag
ricultural papers speak in warm praise of the
Early Amber caue for soiling. Iu our experience
with it last summer, we found that the cattle ate
it readily, and the results were satisfactory in
all respects. The yield per acre is leas than
com; bnt the cane is tuorp juicy and of conn,
sweeter. In our feediug it was not convenient
to rnt the stalks. They were drawn on the pas
tnres, and as a rale, were readily eaten in this
way, more readily than corn fed iu the same
way. A variety called the Rural Branching sor
ghiim. well deserves its name, as it has a great
tendency to send out branches. It also grows
more readily after cutting them than do the
common varieties. An objection to it is that a
long season is required for maturing the seed.
The Earlv Amber will make a fair sceoud
growth if cut reasonably early. We do not ex
pect sorghum will drive Indian corn out of ns
tor green crop feeding, but it promises to make
a valuable addition to our list of plants for this
purpose.
Planting Earlv Peas a i Cokx. In plan
tiug early jea aud corn, the qnalitv of the fu
ture crop may lte partly known by idwerving the
degree of contraction in theii." All peas and
corn that seem sbm eled np, with large indenta
tions, will be tenderer in flesh and contain more
sweetness andjuice than the plumper kinds. If
good table vane tit- are desired, it is advisable
to select the wrinkled kinds.
Plaxt Some Mitai:i. As oou as the ground
is warm enough, every person posj-ssing a gar
den shonld sow a patch of mustard or kale for
early use. The plants come up quickly aftrr

way in time for some otlier vegetable to go on
the same ground. m

How to Avoid Dyspepsia.
We have had occasion to notice two of Dr.
J. F. IM wards contributions to the Blackstone
Aeries of Health Primers, and we are now offered
a third treatise, which discusses dyspepsia In a
popular yet uesfal way.
The significant fact that laboring men are al
most Invariably free from dyspepsia suggested a
very simple remedy for that disorder, which ac
cording to Dr. Edwards was actually applied by
a Philadelphia physician. The patient, a rich
merchant, was informed that if be would consent
to leave his business and be at great trouble and
expense be could obtain immediate relief. The
suffererprofestsed perfect willingness to makesuch
sacrifices; whereupon he was told that in San
Francisco dwelt a physician who had made a
special study of his complaint, and who could
unquestionably cure him. The patient hastened
to San Francisco, where he spent a week in the
vain effort to find the physician, who was, of
course, the creation of his adisors brain. With
a mind too fall of wrath to leave any room for
thoughts of business, he hurried back to Phila
delphia, and bitterlv reproached the man who
had sent him on a fools errand. But, my friend,"
retnroed the other, howls your dyspepsia f"
The tnerrhaut had not thought of that, for the
doctor's ruse had been successful, and the man
was well. This story, for whose truth Dr. Ed
wards seems to vouch, may be taken to mean
too much. So doubt the patient was relieved
through the doctor's device from the particular
cares which had engrossed his mind, but it
should not be overlooked that the long journey
by rail gave his body a thorough shaking np, and
stimulated all its functional activities.
Dr. Edwards, of course, does not prescribe for
dyspepsia, 'but he offers a good many hints as to
the right sort of food to be taken by those who
would avoid it. In summer, fur instance, it is
better to drink skimmed milk, because the cream
contains little else than carbon, which is of no
nutritive value, and whose generating power is
not require! at that season. In warm weather
all oily and fatty elements of food should be
eliminated as far as nosaible.
Touching the question oi supper, in. .u warns
declares against it, because be would have ns
tkake onr last meal at7 and go to bed at 10. For
those who neer retire before midnight, and sel
dom itreakiast bet ore IU a. ni., tnere is reason to
think that some food should le taken in the large
portion ofthe twenty-four hours which has elaps
ed since dinner. It is true, as Dr. Edwards says,
that the destruction of tissue does not goon
with the same intensity during sleep as while
we are awake, but, so far as we know, the ratio
of intensity has not been accurately measured,
and we are surprised that Dr, Edwards should
state it as four to one. Perhaps tho most inter
esting chapter of this little haud-book is the last,
which includes a good many comments on famil
iar kinds of food, which the reader may do well
to rememlier. A very savory dish, for instance,
is made of chicken liters, to say nothing of pac
defuiegra; but the author points out that In er
of alt auimals is apt to be infested with a parasite
w hich is iu isible to the naked eye. It is further
noted that tho blood of fowls contains much less
iron than of red-blooded animals, bnt three time
as much phosphorus. Chestnuts, it seems, are
much les indigestible than other nuts, all of
whloh, ho we er, like the different sorts of cheese,
though not easily digestible themseUes, aid the
digestion of other food. It is, we need not say,
an American habit to use butter at every meal,
including dinner. It is not improbable that our
varied climate, entailing the necessity of main
taining at all timesa store of caloric in the body,
is accountable for the custom. It is well to bear
in mind that a given quantity of butter will pro
duce ten times as much heat as the same quan
tity of fresh lean meat. Sufferers from consump
tion, who iisnally exhibit au aversion to the fat
of meats and to end-liver il can usually le
tempted with first-class butter. Snch patients
caii also le induced to take, iu the form of salad
dressing, a good deal of olive oil, which is one of
the niotd easily digested of the food fats. Of
mushrooms w are tola that, winie iiiey are not
totally dfoid of nourishment, jet they are so
jHHir iu nitrogen that we should need to consume
seven pounds of them per diem in order to obtain
the minium requisite amount of nitrogenous
elements. Lentils are more nutritious than (ea,
and the itntrithe value of eggs is great. .V. 1.

How Diphtheria May Be Detected.
Physicians in prhatc practice ns well as in
public employ say that almost etery ailment
noticed in a child is taken for diphtheria, aud
that ditditlieria treatment is often hastily admin
istcred by anxious parents in innocent ca.sesof
cold.
There are frequent calls at the ofllreofthe
Hoard of Health for a circular intended for free
distribution, and which contains instructions as
to what shonld le done when diphtheria enters
a honKeliold. An employe of the Board of Heath
sas that the most important part of this circu
is its description ofthe early symptoms ofthe
disease.
"Gieheed," he says in his interpretation of
this part oi the circular, "the moment you ob
serve signs in votir child of unwonted weakness,
fatigue or physical debility, particularly if it is
accompanied with a little fever. Make the child
frequently open its mouth, so that 3 on can ow
ner e iM'throat. It is in the throat that the lay
observer will first discover auy signs of diphthe
ria. Never mind how red and how much inflam
ed the throat appears. That does not indicate
the disease. But tho instant ou see a white
Ht and detect a bad odor, run for a doctor.
The white spot will grow. Other white spots
will appear, ami win eventually run xogeiner in

Felons Boils. Simple Kemedy.
"Felons," which are Usually termed "Whit
low" by physicians, we believe, are very iain
fill and ottui a very serious affection of the fin
gers, generally of the last joints, aud often near
or uitoiviug the nan, as tne lingers are niucu
exposed to bruises, felons are quite common
amoni: those who constantly use their bands at
hard work. If allowed to continne, until mat
ter (pus) forms, and the jienosttam or bone
sheathing is affected, lancing is necessary; but
if taken 111 time, a simple application of Copal
Varnish, covering it with a bandage, is highly
recommended. If the Varnish becomes dry aud
unpleasantly hard, a little fresh Varnish may
lie applied from time to time. When a cure is
effected, the varnish is easily removed by rub
bing into it a little lard, and washing with soap
and water. Dr. A. II. Ishaiu details, in Mnlical
Acir, a number of cases of its application with
uniform sncc.es, where formation of pus had
not previously occurred. Iu two cases, there
was apparently a combination of the "ran-
around' with the icion, ami in au 01 them tnere
was swelling, redness, heat, aud great pain.
He suggests the use of Copal Varnish for felons,
"run-arounds," boils, and any local acute in
flammatieu of external parts. American Agrt-

An Off-Hand "Way to Measure an Acre.
Few fanners know the size of their fields or
how many acres they contain. Afield of the
writer's, before it came into his possession, had
been plowed and reaped by contract for fifteen
acres. On measuring it, it wasfotiu'd to have
bnt tnelte acres. It is desirable, in fact, indis
pensable for good work, that a fanner shonld
ki ow how many acres each field contain, for
otherwise lie rannot apioriiun seed or manure
for it, nor can he'tell how much time it should
require to be plowed. A measuring cord should
be rart ofthe furniture on everj fann. To make
one, procure sixty-seven feet of strong rope, one
inch around; make a loop or fasten a ring or a
bar at each end, and make these precisely sixty
six feet apart. Then tie a piece of red rag in
tiie centre. One arre of ground will be a piece
four of the cords (chains) long and two and one
half wide, equal to sixteen by ten rods, making
160 square hmIs te oue acre. The advantage of
the ring or loop is mat one. person can measure
alone, by drhiug a stake in the ground to hold
the rope while he stretches it out. The rope
shonld lm soaked in tar and dried, which will
prevent it from shrinking when wet.
It is a oinlar error to stipposethst ivy grow
ing on the walls of a house makes it damp. The
attachment of iy to walls, so far from injuring
them and causing dampness, is au advantage.
If the walls are dry when planted, ivy will keep
them so. If damp, a the plant overspreads
their surface the dampness will disappear.
Where dampness prevails iy sucks out the
moisture, and its thick foliage will prevent the
access if rain to the structure; aud thus it is
not ouly a remover, bnt apreieutie,of damp
ness. The only danger attending the planting
of ivy ou bnihluigs is where fisures occur in the
wallS, in which case the shoot and roots will
enter, and, if left nttdistnrled, theirgrowth will
soon begin to tell niton the building, and will,
by increase of grow th, "push against the sides of
the opening, thereby enlarging it, and eventu
ally so weaken the wallas to cause it to fall.
Where the wall is souud there is no snch dan
ger, for the plaut does not make fissures, al
though quick to discover them.
Most Hkaltht Heatixg. In forty govern
ment schools in Saxony, observations have latrly
been made as to the temperature, carltonic acid,
and iMnisturettf the air with different kind of
beatiug hot water, air and stove. It is proved
that air heating gies the best results; the least
variation of temperature, much the least pnqMtr
tion of carltonic acid, as measnred iu the middle
ofthe room, at the height of a table, and the
smallest variation in both of the other ynteiu
was unsatisfactory.

Liuirr axt Liqciim. It has lately been no
ticed that liquors kept in colorless bottles expo
sed to the light soon acquire a disagreeable taste,
while those contained in brown or green bottles
remain nnehaoged even if placed in direct sun
light. The effect Is dne to the chemical action
of light, and liquids liable to similar change
shonld be preserved in red, orange, yellow or
green bottle the colors excluding the chemical
rays.
