without manure.
flea why will it not pay ? Because

rains of this land far above this price,
j isw pear orchards in California that
were rained at a thousand dollars an
acre. 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

art in them all toe .awie, whether hiKh
or low. *

the crop was planted lam satisfied
that we ••hall have gained largely by »o

■our than we could destroy in a day

Wit we used to raise a ton of hops to

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

BKZ NOTES.
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.

leave the value of the products of the
country, other than butchers' meats,
at over *3,250.000,000. Comparisons

agricultural products,except those just

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.—
