subject to tlm firmer, I submit to y uu the
result of an experiment mado by uie two

I hive seven old apple decs which bad be
come' hide bound, the haik being haul and
scrubby, lo such a degree as to prevent the
circulation of the sap, in consequence of
which lltey bore very li.ilo fiuit and that of
an infeiior quality. Around these trees I
dug a trench about six feet from the trunk,
and applied dung, plaster, ashes, and salt,
mixed well with earth, and shaved the oilier
bark from the tnlitu trunk of eath. The
trees blossomed full, and to my surpiise,
bore better fruit llitu bad ever biirno before.
I have tried this experiment on other fiuit
trees with equal success.
