How to Eradicate Sassafras Bushes.— It is a well-known fact that many farme are infested with sassafrus bushes, and that many plans have been adopted for their destruction with little success, the trouble being that when they are grubbed up every small root left in the ground will, in the ensuing spring, produce a separate shoot, aud thus the numbers increase. Thirty years ago a practical farmer, who bad seen four-score years, told me that if the hushes are grubbed the day before and the day after the full of the moon in July and the day before and the day after the full of the moon in August, the small roots left in the ground will never germinate again. After thirty years experience, I am prepared to say to all who are troubled with them, suspend all other work, em brace the opportunity offered during the four dayrf*I have named, and in the com ing spring you may see one in a thousand ; trat follow the same course the next sum mer, and you shall see your enemy no more. I speak from experience, 1 shall leave others to philospliize and theorize up on it.— Geo. Lemy, near Rcs's Corner , Kent county , Md. Don't Go to Extremes. —Agricultural writer« are inclined to run to extremes. Farmers often cure their hay too much, and to guard against this mistake, some writers urge us to put it iuto the ham be fore it is cured half as much as it ought to bo. I have found, to my cost, that it is not safe to follow their recommendations. Detter dry it too much than not dry it enough. And so in cutting grain. There is undoubtedly a loss in lettiug it get dead ripe. Dut there is a still greater loss in , cutting it before the grain becomes firm.— Prof. Joseph Harris. Drying Frcit. —A correspondent of the üural World finds an ordinary hot-bed a capital place for drying fruit. A floor is laid. iauiiie on which to place the fruit. 'Then put on the sash, hut be sure to raise Loth the upper and lower ends about two inches, to udmit of a free circulation of j»ir, or the fruit would bake as it would in an oven. Here the fruit will not be wet in a shower, nor will it he troubled with insects, which will be kept away by the hovering and the intense heat. Parboiled green corn has been sufficiently dried in ouc day in this way. The black knots on plum and cherry .trees have been decided un good authority to be neither the production uor the spe cial nest of any species of insect, but a little parasitic plant of tho class Fungi. The only cure is to lop otf and burn the jMfocted branches, as if left until late in the .season they throw oft innumerable spores, which lodge ou healthy brunches and there vegitate. Dwarf orange-trees from China have reached California in good condition. They are not over two feet high, and an acre of ground would contuiu over four thousand. Although each tree will not ^produce over half a dozen oranges, yet the yield per acre would greatly exceed JLhat of stuudard tries. Correspondent of the Journal of Agri culture says lie finds his clay loam grounds iucrcase more in productiveness by the use of eight bushels of plaster per acre, than front the application of barnyard manuro. Wood-ashes contains all the inorganic ingredients which growing trees extract from the soil, aud in consequence arc just ly regarded as the best fertilizer for Up jilus. pears, peaches, plums, etc. Why arc «beep the most dissipated ani gpi&ls in creation? Because they gambol in their youth, spend most of their days on the t\irf ; tho best of them are bhiokicgs, and they ar,e «Aire to be fleeced at last.
