About Fig; Culture— When
to Fertilize No I oh.
"Feed the land and the land will feed
you" was ihe maxim of the past, but
tbe latest investigations have added a
new rule, which is more pertinent and
forceful, to wit, "Feed the plant and the
plant will feed you."
This means that we should apply the
fertilizers intelligently, such as the
plant requires, and nr. such times as it
can take up and assimilate the food
offered. It would be juat as sensible to
dump a month's feed before a horse and
tell him to help himself for that period,
as to cart a year's supply If fertilizer
into the v.chard and expect the best re
sults. In both cases a large percentage
would be wasted before it could be util
ized by animal or plant, and another
large peicentage would not be utilized,
because not needed by either horse or
jplant.
Finely ground meal from unsteatned
bones ia a complete fertilizer for fruit
treea, as it contains the three principal
ingredients required, viz.: phosphoric
acid, potash and nitrogen. It is not
quite as active aa the acid phosphates,
but more permanent in ita effects.
Acid phosphate is simply bone meal
dissolved in sulphuric acid, to which ia
added gypsum, ashes or other similar
material as a drier. The practice of
adding to thia the nitrate of soda is
wasteful and unnecessary, as the nitrates
are better applied separately and in more
frequent doses.
Gypsum is not a fertilizer in the sense
that phosphoric acid and nitrogen or
ammonia are uaed. It is simply the
sulphate of lime, and, by ita presence in
the soil and affinity for water, assists in
forming chemical combinations that fur
nish food for the plants from material
already there. It is valuable as an
absorbent of ammonia.
Nitrate of coda is one of the most ex
pensive methods of supplying nitrogen,
and should be applied to fruit trees dur
ing the growth of the plant, in Bmall
quantities at a time, and more fre
quently than other fertilizers. It pro
duces a luxuriant growth of wood and
large specimens of fruit. The spongy
growth of oranges in many groves is
largely due to excessive use of sheep
manure, which is in its best estate rich
in nitrogen.
The formation of seed taxes the vital
ity of trees and vines much more than
tbe growth of the pulp, hence it has
been found of great advantage to both
trees and vinea in bearing to give a suit
able dressing of fertilizer at that time.
The cost of fertilizing the orchards ia
becoming a serious question to our fruit
growers. To help them to do this eco
nomically, and from materiala within
their own resources, shall be our aim.—
[California Cultivator.
WOUK OF THE BLASTQPHAOA.
Last year tbe Expositor noted the re
sult of an experiment tried by George
C. Boeding in fertilizing the fruit of an
imported Smyrna fig tree, by applying
the pollen from wild or male fig to it by
means of a toothpick. Encouraged by
his last year's experience, Mr. Roeding
went at tbe matter more extensively
this season, and aa a result has secured
something like a hundred fertilized figs.
An examination of tbe fruit shows
the seeds to be fully developed and tbe
meat of the fruit to be rich, pulpy aud
similar in general appearance and flavor
to the imported Smyrna fig.. Compared
with a good sample of the white Adriatic
the moat inexperienced can readily dis
cover the many points of superiority
possessed by tbe Smyrna fruit. But
inasmuch as the Smyrna figs will not
mature without being fertilized with the
pollen of the wild fig, the treea will be
valueless until the blastophaga
which infests the male fig
trees of Smyrna, and which then
conveys the pollen to the edible figs,
thus fertilizing them, can be procured.
It was announced some weeks ago that
a party at Miles, in Alameda county,
had secured this inaect, but later reports
say that they did not survive, so more
will have to be imported. This Mr.
Roeding proposes doing another season,
and until they are secured the fig
eating people of California will have to
content themselves with the fruit of the
white Adriatic.
The Smyrna fig trees are profuae bear
ers, and once the blastophaga is intro
duced and acclimated the fig problem
will be solved and Fresno county will
enter tbe field and contest with Asia for
the American market.
There are thousands of acres of land
in this county suited to fig growing.
These acrea should be brought under
cultivation and planted to figs. By the
time the trees come into bearing it is
certain that the fertilizing insect will be
here and ready for work.
There ia no tree more easily grown
than the fig. Our dry, warm atmos
phere and mild winters are juat what
the fig tree wants. The numerous ways
the fig can be put into market will make
it a valuable adjunct to our Horticul
tural resources. The fig can be eaten
fresh; it makes an excellent pickle;
preserved or made into jam it is a deli
cacy fit iot anybody; it makes a most
delicious comfit, and there is no dried
fruit that equals it. In the latter form
the fig can be grown, cured and prepared
for market at less expense than any
other fruit. There is a great future for
figs.—lFreano Expoaitor.
EXAMINE YOUR TREE CONTRACTS.
We caution our readers who may con
template setting out any trees in Califor
nia during the coming season on two
points:
First—Have inserted in your contract
that the trees ahall be delivered to yon
absolutely free from scale buga or any
insect peat of any description, each con
signment to be inspected by the local
inspector and have his written certificate
of cleanness; the expenses of inspection
to be borne by the seller.
Second—ln case the trees are of some
stone fruit variety grown on peach
roots, be sure the peach pits are of
California origin, and tbat the trees
were grown on aoil where the "yellows"
are unknown. Thus far no cure has
been found for the "yellows," and its
introduction into California will cost us
millions of dollars. The only safe way
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD. SUNDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 8, 1891
is to keep tbe pest out, and not to trust
to getting it out after once introduced.
Prevention is the only safe way.—fCitro
graph.
THE ELBERT A PEACH.
The Elberta was originated by Sam
uel H. Rumpb ot Marahallville, Ga.,one
mile from Mill Creek fruit farms. It is
a new peach and has not been placed
on the New York market for more than
three or four years. It ia a ready seller
and commands the highest price of any
peach grown, it having sold as high as
$15 per bushel. The past season the
peach crop of Georgia waa light;
aome varieties failed entirely, but
the Elberta trees were all laden
with delicious fruit, very large and
golden yellow, some specimens weigh
ing 10 ounces or 48 peaches to the
bushel, which aold in the New York
markets at $5 to $7 per box (three
fourtba of a bushel). In 1889, a young
orchard, seven-eighths of an acre, of
Elbertas, netted over $500, the fruit
from one tree, four years old, selling for
$46. It can truthfully be Baid there is
no peach in the United States to equal
or excel the Elberta as a shipper, or in
aize, flavor or color. It is a splendid
cropper and rarely ever rota. The
peaches can be pulled from trees almost
green and put in a crate or in the house
and they will ripen and color aa well as
if left on the treea. —[California Fruit
Grower.
SOMETHING ABOUT ALMONDS.
The Ontario Observer thua states the
case: "E. P. Norwood, of Cucamonga,
left at this office, Tuesday, samples of
Italian chestnuts and hard and soft shell
almonds. The chestnuts are double the
aize of the eastern variety and are of
good quality. The almonds were picked
from six-year-old tre.es, the hard shell
variety yielding one hundred pounds
and the soft shell fifty pounds to tbe
tree. The quality of the nuts in extra
fine, he being able to dispose of them at
10 cents per pound. At this price his
trees will pay him at the rate of $600 an
acre for soft shell and $1000 an acre for
the hard shell variety. Reducing these
returns one-half, a good profit would
etill be left to the almond grower."
WHEN TO FERTILIZE.
James Boyd, of Riverside, is a success
ful orange grower. The following ia an
extract from a paper of his in the Pbue
nix: •
Now is the season of the year in which
fertilizers ought to be used liberally.
The application now, at the end of the
irrigation season, is what ia needed to
give the trees a surplus of nourishment
and get the reat incorporated in the soil,
forming a part thereof before next sea
son's irrigation commences, so that
there will be as Bmall portion of it as
possible leached out of the soil with the
waste water from irrigating. And so is
it of importance that it be uaed before
heavy winter rains come that would
wash the beat part of it (the soluble
part) away. If put on now there ia a
good chance for cultivation and thor
ough mixing with the aoil before it geta
thoroughly saturated with water.
NOTES.
Those who do not know how fine a
quality of Bilk has been spun in San
Diego should see the souvenir skeins
which Mra. Carrie Williams haa on aale
at Dodge & Burbeck's. Experts say
there is no better ailk imported.
The camphor tree is a fine, handaome
evergreen well adapted to streets and
avenues. It withstands a temperature
of ten degrees. A specimen in Yuba
county measures fifty feet in height.
Easily grown from seed.—[Citrograp^.
If your orange trees have gum disease
pare down to the live wood and cover
with tar, paint or wax. Look over your
orchard and examine every tree near the
ground. While irrigating never allow
the water to touch the body of tbe tree.
—[Citrograph.
Those who have the cottony cushion
scale on their places and desire to colo
nize the vedalia or Australian lady-bird
among the scales can be supplied by ap
plication to B. M. Lelong, secretary
State Board of Horticulture, 220 Sutter
street, San Franciaco. This beneficial
insect should be kept abreast of the

At the Tejon ranch there is a magnifi
cent grapevine that has been trained
over a trellis and along one side of a
building. The grapes are very large,
shaped somewhat like the flaming Tokay
and when ripe of a very deep purple
color. Lately some bunches with leaves
from the vine were brought to town and
submitted to a grape expert, who pro
nounces them the Black Ferrara, by all
odds the best table and shipping grape
in Italy. It is presumed that General
Beale obtained the cuttings when
abroad, and in introducing this vine he
certainly has done this section a service,
for if the cuttings are saved, very many
vines can 'soon be had. —[Bakerefield

HELEN'S INCANTATION
A Halloween Sketch by Er
nest Jarrold.
The Observance of the Rites of
the Mystic Even,
When Witches Are Abroad and Faires
Hold High Carnival,
Leads to Happier Days and Brighter
Skies for a Luckless and
Harmless Human Atom.
New Youk, Oct. 26".—
The time of portents and of spells! When
witches are abroad and fairies hold high
carnival.
All Halloween had come. Down Park
row the wind swept with a breath of
winter in it. Pedestrians buttoned their
coats tightly about their necks and hur
ried homeward to the warmth and comfort
awaiting them. Before a restaurant with a
marble floor, lighted by electricity and upon
whoso walls hung Scriptural quotations,
stood Joe Mncdouald, sixteen years old,
HIS MOUTH BEGAN TO WATER.
with a violin bow in his hand. His face
was thin and pale, his clothing thread
bare. His eyes shone with hungry eager
ness as he watched the white aproned cook
in the window cut a slice from a plump
ham and place it upon a slab of iron heated
by gas jets. Then the cook broke two eggs
beside the ham. A savory odor arose from
the cooking viands, which seemed to the
Imagination of the hungry boy outside to
penetrate the plate glass window and sa
lute his nostrils. His mouth began to
water as the cook placed a thin spatula
under the ham and turned it over to brown
on the other side. As the cook ladled
the ham aud eggs upon a plate and carried
them away to a waiting customer, the boy
looked at the promise ou the wall, "Tho
Lord Will Provide," and wondered vaguely
if it was meant to be interpreted literally.
He felt in his pockets, but his fingers only
touched a nickel. 'Twas the last of th*
money obtained by pawning his father's
violin two weeks before. It was almost a
sacrilege, he felt, when the fingers of the
greedy-pawnbrokerclosed upon the mellow
Instrument, full of quiescent melody and
eloquent of tender memories. But he
couldn't part with the bow. Something
tangible must remain as a link between
him and the days of prosperity, and so he
carried the bow with him in all his wander
ings about the splendid city. Oh, if he
could only have kept the violin too! Hun
ger and contumely would be easier to bear
if he could have tucked it under his chin
and made it do his crying for him. Its
resonant voice was as soothing as the touch
of his mother's hand, now quiet in Calvary
cemetery. Since the funeral he had been a
homeless wanderer. "Be a man, Joe," she
had said just before the fever finished its
work. This he construed as an appeal to
his pride rather than to his morality. He
was trying to follow the advice, and starv
ing in order to do it. Not for a pocketful
of gold would he have asked for help. But
hunger was very hard to bear on All Hal
loween.
As Joe turned away from the, restaurant
window his gaze fell upon a scrap of news
paper lying at his feet. Impelled by some
impulse he picked it up. It was a scrap
torn from the corner of a musical weekly.
Covered with filth, one line was yet deciph
erable. It read:
" and Pagannini finished the sonata
on the E string."
To any oue but a musician this sentence
would have had little meaning. But to
Joe it meant a good deal. He had often
heard his father talk about the wonderful
Italian violinist Pagannini. With the ar
tist's appreciation he knew what it meant
to finish a sonata on the E string. As he
walked aimlessly along—there was no need
for him to hurry, as he had no money and
would to walk the streets all night—
"TWINE, TWINE AND INTERTWINE."
nr. A_ LI £~1 . I .
an idea came to him. So pregnant was it
with hope, so full of possibilities, that he
stopped under a lamppost with beating
heart to consider it. If he could only put
his idea into practice he would be able
to buy a dish of that delicious ham
and eggs he had seen in the window,
with coffee and rolls! He might even bo
rich enough to buy a winter overcoatl
While away off on the horizon of his fancy
arose visions of a job in a dime museum at
a salary of fifty dollars a week. The list
lessness had gone from his-step now. For
gotten was hia hunger, and with a flushed
face and eager eye he walked down Park
row to the store of a music dealer and in
vested his last nickel in a piece of thin
wire four feet long. The clerk, who was a
polite ycung fellow about Joe's age, gave
him a piece of broomsticit about eigne
inches long.
"What are you going to do with that?"
laughingly asked the clerk.
"Mnke my fortune," said Joe, as he left
the store and ran rapidly up the street.
* » * « • • •
There was an unusual commotion in the
house of William Bayne, the band leader,
on All Halloween. He always celebrated
the occasion in tbe old fashioned style. The
cozy room was brightly lighted. In the
fireplace the coals glowed redly. Mr.
Bayne's three daughters—Mary, Jane and
Helen— together with a dozen girls and
boys fmm the neighborhood, were present.
Such larks as they had! Upon a table
stood three white bowls, one of which was
empty. The second bowl was filled with
clean, and the third with dirty water.
Each one of the party went into an adjoin
ing room and was blindfolded. At last the
turn of Helen — pretty sixteen-year-old
Helen—came. She was blindfolded and
led out to the bowls arranged in a row on
the table. She groped to dip her fingers
In the bowl of clean water. In the event
of success she would secure a bachelor for
a husband. If she touched the dirty water
her future partner would be a widower,
and if her hands dropped into the empty
bowl she would not be married at all.
And while Helen groped blindly the
bowls were changed silently to em
barrass her, while each one held her breath
in suspense. Suddenly Helen's hands
dropped into the empty bowl, and a shout
of laughter saluted her. But there were
tears of vexation in her eyes when the
bandage was removed, and she exclaimed
confidentially to her dearest friend, "Oh, I
did want to touch the clean water!" Then
the young folks wound apple parings
around their heads, and when the parings
broke with their own weight and fell over
their left shoulders the party eagerly
rushed forward to see if the parings had
fallen so that they formed the initials of
a prospective lover's name. They burned
nuts on the grate, the brightness of the
flames being typical o£ the ardor with
which the girls were fated r*> be wooed,
while the ashes were carefully kept to be
placed beneath their pillows.
But late in theevening Helen grew tired
of the sport afcd went up stairs to try
a little spell of her own. Her heart beat
with hope as she entered her room and
took from a vase two roses with long
stems, which she had bought at a Broad
way florist's. One of the roses she named
for herself nnd the other for her un
known lover. Kneeling beside the bed,
she twined the stems of the roses close
ly together and repeated the following
lines, gazing meanwhile intently on thts
rose named for her lover:
Twine, twine and intertwine.
Let my love be wholly mine;
If his heart be kind and true,
Deeper grows his rose's hue.
When Helen arose from her knees her
face was flushed and her eye 3 shone like
jet. She went to the window, and raising*
the sash looked out into the street. The
stars were shining brightly. A cool breeze
THE MISERERE.
caressed her cheek. Suddenly a long, low
musical strain fell upon her ear. It seemed
co far away that Helen at first thought it
was an echo. It was like the note of a
thrush in a wood. She listened more in
tently and at last recognized the "Mis
erere." So sweet yet mournful was tho
music that Helen's eyes became wet as she
listened. By this time she had located the
music. It came from an ash barrel that
stood near the cv rb. She could dimly discern
the form of a boy seated on the curb, with
his back against the ash barrel, apparently
playing a violin. "That must be my lover,"
whispered Helen to herself. "I've conjured
him with the roses." Running down stairs
she burst into the parlor all aglow with
excitement. "Papa," she cried excitedly,
"there's a boy outside playing a violin in
the gutter. Won't you bring him in?" Of
course Mr. Bayne could not resist such an
appeal. Five minutes later JoeMacdon
ald stood under the chandelier, with a
flush on his pale face and a broomstick
violin in his hand. He had driven a nail
in one end of the broomstick. In the other
end he had cut a V-shapod notch. Through
this notch he had inserted a clumsy key
,made with his jackknife. From the nail
to the key ran a piece of zither wire. The
instrument was passed around among the
party, exciting exclamations of wonder.
"Now, let's hear you play!" said Mr.
Bayne. Joe tucked his instrument under
his chin as lovingly as if it had been an
Amati or a Stradivarius. He played the
aria "Spirito Gentil," from "La Favorita."
Then he swung off into the rippling rou
lades of the "Casta Diva" from "Norma,"
and finished amid a tempest of applause
with "Annie Boonev." And after the lit
tle performance was over Mr. Bayne took
Joe into the library and there he listened
to his story. How he had made his in
strument, thinking that on account
of its novelty it might attract atten
tion and enable him to make some
money. He had been wandering around
the city, and as he passed Mr. Bayne's
house he heard the laughter, and looking
in the window saw the children celebrating
All Halloween. The Bight had reminded
him of similar occasions in his own home
when his parents were alive, and to ease
his heartache and his hunger he had seated
himself in the gutter and played on his In
strument.
When Joe left tbe house that night he
had a five dollar note in his pocket, a por
tion of which he spent for a dish of ham
and eggs at the Park row restaurant. As
he ate his gaze fell upon the sign on the
wall, "The Lord Will Provide," and his
doubts about the literal translation were
all gone. Joe plays the first violin lv
Bayne's orchestra now, while Helen really
thinks that "his heart is kind and true,"
and that her incantations to the roses
brought him to her father's door.
