We can beat California in rais ing pears, can raise just as attractive lod s better quality of fruit. Our trees wilt bear Jim a* early, just as heavily and just as regularly as in the climate farther south. We now have tbe facil ities for (hipping, have the soil, the climate, the everything, ready and tailing for the enterprise to plant. What is true of pear* is true as to Blums, prunes, apples, and the long list of small fruits, each of which may become a special crop aside from the kop* which have given such excellent returns John commenced drilling corn on Friday; by Tuesday there were sprouts ettlierrain an inch long; what was ■ore, the drill was covered with weeds Just peeping above ground. The wea ther had been warm; the planting had not closely followed the preparation of Ike ground, and, having pressed the ml closely down to insure the quick iprouting of the corn, we had succeed *J in starting a tine crop of weeds, and that in advance of the corn. On Tues day afternoon, four days after plant ing. we begmi the cultivation by run ning the wheel hoe right over the drills about half an inch deep. This de stroyed millions of weeds, but did not too< h the corn. Three days later we could not have done thi« without in juring the corn. We will, however, use the harrow over the row after the corn is a week up out of the ground 1 mean not to do much hand hoeing Labot is too high for that. Twenty •ii dollars a month and board counts up fast; so do potatoes at forty dollars a tou, the price they are going at now; but the difficulty is. we may reasona bly expect, when the crop is ready to 'i .

The weeds w«re sprouting under the surface, •oagh not visible yet, except by stir ring the soil; then tliev could be seen, millions of them. It was the 2ith of *»>'. should we plant? I said no; •nJ at it again we went with the disk asrrow this time, cultivating before the crop was planted lam satisfied that we ••hall have gained largely by »o «"ing. Callahan, with the old ' plug " testii, destroyed more weeds in one ■our than we could destroy in a day alter planting. That is the "time to do better part of the cultivation— be fore the crop is planted. That is the Wit we used to raise a ton of hops to th« acre the first year of planting by "•rough work, not only myself, but Maers at l'uyallupdid it.'

Fall plowing is an inveetment that pays a hundred fold. I have no doubt the actual profit on an acre of Und is a gain of more than twice the coet of the additional plowing. Sex* to fall plowing comes winter plowing. To our New York or New En*land farm ers. who live in about tbe tame degree of Utitude or south of u«, this wiiTap pear strange kind of talk, about plow ing in winter. Today Jack came to a strip of the root ground that was left unbowed last winter; it came on to rain, and was too wet to finish it. We run tbe disk harrow over it, and then we could begin to see the nyl. He took the clod masher, then the brush and Anally tbe steel barrow, each in turn to " wear 'em out," as he said. It came very near wearing us out be fore we got through with it. We finally had to band-rake it before planting the beets. But it U not roots alone that are benefited by fall plowing. All kinds of crops will be both heavier and ear lier. We can always plow here in Oc tober, November and December, if the season is not too wet; the later the better, so we do not miss it altogether. Then is when I might agree to " let up " on Uie subsoiling, as that might best be done at the second plowing in the spring. We are today rcplowmn such a piece that turned up as " mel low as an ash heap," and which I will warrant to bring a full crop, "rain or shine." I will not hesitate i« sow oats or plant potatoes or corn for ensilage even as late a* the 20th of June. I told Frank today that we would sub soil all the Und, even if we did not get all the crop in before the 'JOth of June. 1 think oats sown that late upon deeply plowed Und will bring a much better crop than that sown earlier upon shal low plowing. Anyway we will risk it, and cut either in tbe milk for hay or while in tbe dough for grain. Guthrie said today he hoped it would rain; part of the land was retting too dry. I hope it will not. Warm, dry weather is what we want. The out look >1 that we shall have a continu ance o( dry weather. We have been repairing the roller and wili go over the com, onions and sugar l>eets as quick as we can after planting. By compacting the soil we prevent the es cape of moisture rising to the surface, and. besides, press it close about the seeds. If we did not have rain for three months, our crops on the valley land would not suffer. That is the pe culiar value of this alluvial soil, where the culture has been good, and with some crops without it. the ability to stand drought. 1 once traced a "hop root niue feet long. This was down fully six feet deep, and within reach of moisture; nevertheless it is the surface roots that do the best work. Three years ago, 1 think it was. we had a very dry summer. I know I plowed my hops until some time in July—plowed them deep, right in the hottest weather. We, of course, broke off countless thousands of roots. 1 could follow the plow and hear them snapping. Some said I would injure the crop, but 1 did not. One could stand on the platform at my hop house and see a dozen hop yards. Not one of them in September, at harvest time, hail the rich, lively, growing color that mine had. I know we made tons of hops by the deep plowing. I once went to Dick Jeff's place late in the season and found theiu plowing hops. Dick *•« not at home. 1 asked the man I how long bad heorders tocontinue the plowing. Il<* said, when Dick left! home he told him to " plow till ii rains." I knew then that he was a farmer. " Plow till it rains" is a goo.l muxim to he in every farmer's mouth, and, let me add. " deep." STOCK. GRAFT AND LEAF. [jiewMsrw CalliMtar.] It has been supposed that the stocks of fruit trees exercised an influence upon the character of the fruit, but it is alwaya found that a sweet apple graft on a sour apple stock will pro duce as sweet fruit as if grown from the lead Nature makes no mistakes The graft has its root in the stock, whether at the bottom or top of the tree, and the fruit acquires its whole character from the leaves beyond it Whether the nurseryman sets his ap ple grafts upon whole stock* or pieces of roots, the graft must soon become the main factor, because the stock, no! producing any leaves, acts simply a* a feeder until overcome by the graft, which sends alburnum or sap wood into the roots, that thev may have growth to correspond with the trunk above ground. In short, the stock carries up the food, but the graft as similates it that it may produce »t» kind, unmixed with any other. It ia in this manner that the original stock and roots arc overwhelmed by the graft before the tree leaves the nur sery. Savs Mr. Knight, an English w-iter of many years" standing as an author ity : "The true »ap ol trees is wholly generated in their leaves, from which it descends through the bark to the ex tremities of their roots, depositing in its course the matter which U succes sively added to the tree." That the leaf is the main noariaher of the fruit as well as the bailder of the tree, let the cultivator compare the leaf of the graft with that of the tree from which it was first taken, and be will find that the same leaf under all conditions will produce the same fruit Baldwins and Greenings on the same Stock will Still be perfect Baldwins au<l perfect Greenings. l'rof. l.indlev. the great botanist, speaks directly to this point when he sav«: Of the food to be consumed in the manufacture of the fruit, a portion is derived from the atmosphere but the principal part has to be prepares! by the leaves, which obtain it from the earth through the roots." TBI HOP OUTLOOK. [Sam Fr*nei*-tt OA'eww'ie.] The hop-growers of New York ,-tate are again in trouble The two years preceding this were disa-troos. and now reports are to the effect that an other bad season i« to be added to their m.-fortune- The attacks of aphides hare ruined many a res of vines, and the efforts of the growers to find an effectual remedi for the ravage- of these insects bare prowsl ineffectual Many hare rooted up their vines and gone into other branches of agricul ture, while tho«e who did not do so Ust year but persevered in the face of discouragement hoping for a better -ea«on. now wi>h that they had gone out of the business altogether. The fact of the matter is. the F-ast ern hop grower ca:i no l->n„-er hope to hold hi-own against his V«. ifte coast competitor The hop-yard- ot Sono ma and Mendocino bounties, and oI Oreg.ni and W *«hmeton Territory are as fir superior to those of New York as the orange nr'hards of >an Bernar ditto and 1. • An;-. ;e» are to tho-e d Florida In the sittiif crops r*:-e«l in the fax of cultivation, .ai-k <■* in sert enemie< and certainty o< yield, the l*Ji' ift: co*st hotvranl is »<•> far «u --per-.or to those ot the Kastern States that the '.attcr are entirriy d.»ur.ced The sooner thev give up the costeat tn favor of the former the better it wui he for the pockets of their owners.

Foul brood haa been in some places a seriou* difficulty to bee keeper-. But care and thoroughness can, in most cases, keep it out or erad icate it when it appears. Some of our beekeeper* who have had to contend with tne disease tell u* that salicylic acid or phenol, used according to their direction, is a sure cure. In spring tbe entrance to all hives should be contracted to suit the sixe of the colony, and make all tight and warm over the bees. liuard all the weak colonies very carefully, and contract the hive room to accommodate the size of the cluster of bees. Take away ex tra combs, but leave plenty of honey. During cold, windv uays, discourage their flying by shading the entrance of the hives. No business can succeed in the long run which does not give a fair profit. Without going wild over the reports of the immense profits realized in a few instances from keeping be*«. there seems no doubt that when taken up as a regular business, and intelligently pursued from year to year, it will pay a profit as large as most other calling*. Possibly for a few years those alreadv in the business, anil following it with energy, may make a larger profit than most "rural industries give. But this will not continue long. Labor and cap ital will flow in this direction until pro fits are equalized. The modern improvement' in bee keeping. including the movable comb hive, the honey extractor, comb foun dation and the safe methods of winter ing. make it a pursuit which may be indefinitely develo|>ed. Indeed it may be so followed that, from its wide diffu sion over our country and from the value of its products." it may be truly called a great national industry. The products of some kinds of labor—for instance, some branches of fruit-grow ing. are so perishable that they must be sold as soon as ready for market, anil, as they will bear transportation but a short "distance, the producer is put to great disadvantage. The pro ducts of bee-keeping, honey and wax, may be kept an indefinite time ami may l>e transported to ail parts of the world. LK&DING FARM PRODUCTS I'rof.

BOW TO DO IT. [C. darkton u> /«« Reji*Ur.) A farmer with a farm of one hun dred and «ixtv acre# can easily and economically fceep twenty rows and hare yearly t* enty high grade horu calve*. For baby beef the heifers are a!>out as good as -teer calves. To make a good pile of money and make it soon these calve* should be so fed that at one year old they will weigh from •»«> to Htti pounds each, and he w,.r:h at !ea-t V"' each, or SIOOO. The following is a good way to do it: Wean the calves when thev are ihree days old but fe*>d warm fresh milk for two week's. Then feed half new milk with the aame amount of skim milk until three weeks old Then commerce put ting in boded oil meal or Hax-wred about a teaspoonful a <tay. The oil meal or flaxseed should be boiled in the morning and rooled to feed at the evening meal, when it is or should I* hke ietl» and «h >uld i>e thoroughly stirred up with the mJk. <»nce a day thi« amt-ant for a »eek. then the flax seed or oil meal can 1* fed tw.ee a day. gralualH Iwit carefully in.-reasing the amount of ou meal »o that br the time the calves are two months old it • ill be «afe to give lb en: a pint each per day. B, this t :-e they can begin to eat corn and oat- ground together into meal, riving at first a handful per day grad uallv increasing to a pint, w .lh the aid of p»d »*eet clover hay, aa much as thev wilt eat at all t:3«s they caw be fed in this wav ttnu! »U months old. I! thev are faO calves, which they shotiid be. with good pasture jtat tun ing in the »pring, the oil taeai can be dropfuvi. seeding for the !a*t an months on grass tsd dry meal, sup pjvtcf the s*»ioa ot short dry po»ture with green corn fodder. Thus at twelve mouths, hut at the time of commencing with the next lot of young calves, they will be ready for market at the highest prices. And if the hint we gave hut week to raise the flaxseed at home, nothing need be bought for their food, but aU raised on the farm. They will bring (1000 cash, while the milk from twentr oow* should yield an equal income. This would be what we would consider devoting the farm to the dairy and beef. nunnTor~rowu. [ Farm md Ftdi. ] A contemporary gives tbe following reapes and simple operations to be performed for some of the more com mon disabilities in fowls. But instead of burning tar and turpentine, some what dangerous, we advise sulphur and tar burned only to the point rendering it somewhat uncomfortable to the at tendant. When the fowls seem affected, or as soon as thev sneexe. discontinue immediately. The information is as follow*: You can cut off tbe combs of fowls, if you prefer. Use a sharp knife; cut off both combs and wattles. To pre vent bleeding, first wash tbe head with strong alum water and then sprinkle with powdered tannin. For swelled eyes, bathe the bead with a warm solution made by dissolving a teaspoonful of powdered boracic acid in a pint of water, and then anoint with a few drops of glycerine. Repeat this daily. For roup dissolve a teaspoonful of chloride of lime in a pint of water and give the bird a teaspoonful of the solu tion. Burn tar and turpentioe in tbe poultry house after tbe fowla have gone on the roost at night. For soft-shelled eggs, put the bens at work scratching, a* it indicates that they are too fat. Soft-shell eggs, apoplexy, egg-bound, and nearly all such diseases, are due to the hens be ing too fat. For indigestion, give the birds plenty of sharp gravel, and also a teaspoonful of fenugreek, in the soft food, for every ten hen*. For lice, dust Persian insect powder freely in every crack and crevice, and on the bodies of the bens, among the feathers. To procure eggs, avoid overfeeding and feed meat and milk, with pleatv of grain at night, omitting corn. For bumblefoot, make the roosts low. and keep the afflicted fowl con fined. For debility, keep the fowl in a dry, warm place, feed meat and give a piece of ginger daily. ADVICE TO nurr iinm, • lAlanuda Repiritr ] The necessity of thinning out fruit a* it first forms should be urged upon fruit-growers. The Lusk Canning Com pany of Oakland has men employed to traverse the .State and bring the matter to the attention of orchard is ts. The advice given is not elaborate nor diffi cult to be understood. The main point is that peaches should be thinned out so as to be not more than six or eight inches apart. The work should be carefully done by hand, so as not to injure th« tree. An attempt is made to the growers with the fact that this will pay. The President says: "This whole question of the over production of fruit amounts to this, that there is and always will be an un limited market for every variety of fruit of first class quality, while there is no market at all and never will be for any other. If the rancher will de termine to produce only the best, and will not attempt to place any other on the market, he will make money." And he was right. Some growers may succeed in palming off a second rate fruit, but in the end they will hava injured the industry and themselves. Ami proper thinning is absolutely es sential to the production of cliuice fruit, although tt is something which uine out of ten will not do. It looks like a wanton sacrifice to pluck from a tree more than half the young peaches which set from the blossoms, but it must be done to grow the best peaches. Srrrtsa STBAWBEKRY PLANTS. —The most rapid way to set plants in loamy or sandy ground is to have ground in the best ot order, free from all clumps, roots, etc. Plow straight furrows 3% la 4 feet apart, being careful not to break in the land side in walking be hind. Before setting ihem out wet the plants well and have a boy walk along carefully straightening OUT the roots of each one ami dropping them ten to twelve inches apart in the row; a man follows, placing the roots against the land side of the furrow with the left hand and with the right hand draws in the earth thrown out by the plow and presses it against the plants. We hare nad the best success planting in thi* way; the plants can nave the roots ipread out better and down deeper than when set and pushed in, with roots twisted up. as when set with a dibble. The cultivator should follow soon after, filling up the furrow with earth. A little fertilizer can bedropped in as each plant is set by the same t>oy whose business it is todrop plants.— Popular Gardening. TOOK ALL HIS PAINI AWAY. A M.
