[Written for the Transcript by one of the most exjierienced farmers, gardeners and fruit growers in the United States.] paris green on potatoes. At a meeting of a farmers' club in Elmira, N. Y., the following is a con densed report of what was said on the application of Paris Green to potatoes : Mr. Banfield remarked that the poison is of a subtle character, and we must therefore be very particular to prevent inbaliog it or bringing it in contact with the hands if the skin be broken. Last year he had a sifter made, and attached it to the end of a stick like a hoe-handle. The poison was mixed with flour, and then the person operating walked to the windward of the row to which it was to be applied, and sifted a little on each hill. The effect was immediate. John Bridgman put a tablespoonful io a pail of water, and went along with a small whisk broom, sprinkling the tops. This was his first use of Paris green. The second time he put a little flour in the water, which had the effect of making it adhere better to the leaves and he thinks was better. The two applications completely cleared out the bugs He saw many persons using common sprinklers, and he believes they were successful. Mr. Strouse had three and a half and bad to put the poison on but The rows were thirty rods long, and the potatoes planted in drills 18 inches in the rows, so it required a con siderable sprinkling to go through a row. He put the poison in water, which was supplied by a cask at each end and one in the middle of the field. Three men did the sprinkling in half a day, and a boy oarried the water to supply the oasks. He bought two pounds of the poison, and there was a quarter of a pound left. The field gave a good crop, with no further '.trouble from the bugs after the sprinkling was done. Joseph Hoffman stated that wheat shorts is better than the flour to mix with, as it will not work into lumps so readily. So is buckwheat flour. •ores, once. THE APPLE WORMS. The question how to destroy the cod ling apple worms lately came before the New York Farmers' Club, and notwith standing that its members are not the men that the writer would go to for sound agricultural information, yet oc casionally an outsider has something to say of some importance. At a late meeting Mr. Sylvester, of Lyons. N. Y. said that he recommended encircling the trunks of the apple trees with bands of twisted hay, and they had proved a suc cess. But as this method requires con siderable hay, and is a alow operation in twisting the bands, a better way is to fold straw paper, and with twine to aurronnd the trank of the trees at a height that will admit of easy examina tion once in ten days or two s weeks, to destroy the worms under the bands. This is in confit mation of What I have previously said on this snbject. He said: "The paper bandt were tried by the whole community in a small district in Michigan, and found to be very ef fectual. It has been a very common belief that the worms oause the apples to fall, and fall with them, and if hogs enough to consume all the fallen fruit are placed in an orchard the worms will all be destroyed. It is admitted that hogs are most excellent tenants of or chards and are very valuable as worm eatera, yet they do not have access to a large portion of the wormy apples, and hence cannot destroy all of them. BREAKING COLTS FOR THE HARNESS. Colts may be taught to walk fast or slow in breaking them for the harness, and fast walking horses are much more valuable than slow ones. For instance, suppose yon have a fast walking team which will plow a half an acre of land more io a day than ordinary horses can do. Then suppose that your fast walk ing team will go ten miles to market with a load, and get there an hour sooner than common walkers, you see the difference in dollars and cents read Now, to teaoh a colt to walk fast, yon hitch him at the side of a horse of good walking gait, and if he lags behind you must urge him on and make him keep up — It will take some time to teach your colt to become a fast walker, but he can be made to contract that habit, which he will retain for life, if yon do not work him with a alojr walking animal If you have do fast walker to bitch your colt beside, he cau be made to ac quire the habit of walking fast, by lead ing him daily for a few weeks, and with a whip gently urging him to keep up a lively walk. This training should be persisted iu till your colt will walk four miles so hour. ily, as "time is money FRUITS. The American Pomological Society report on fruit, not previously men tioned, as follows : The best single variety of pears for all sections of the country, is the Bartlett, then come next the Seckel, Bourre d' Anjou After these, the Flemish Beauty, Lawrence, Howell, Winter Nobs Doyenne d'Ete, Duchesse d'Angouleme, and Belle Lu crative. The following do well and are recommended in many States, but do not stand ao high in character as the preoeding: Gifford, Buffman, Osband's Summer, Tyson, and Vicar of Wink field. The Concord grape is the best for general cultivation, and the next beat is the Delaware. The best peaches that "are the most generally esteemed," aro Crawford's Early and Crawford's Late. Next in popularity are Old mixon Free, Oldmixon Cling, Large Early York. Grosse Mignonne and Cooledge's Favorite. The following are most highly esteemed at the sontb and southwest: Colombia, Eaton's Golden, Heath Cling, Lady Parkham, Lemon Cling, Oldmixon Cling and Susque hanna. The best cherries are consider ed to be the Early Richmond for gen eral cultivation, followed by Black Tartarian, the Morellos and May Duke The best strawberries are the Wilson first as a generally popular variety — Next in order are Triomphe de Game, Charles Downing and Longworth's Pro lific ; and after these, Agriculturist, Downor'a Prolific and Green Prolific In regard to raspberries and blaekber ries, the Society says the Mammoth Cluster (Seneca) takes the lead. Pbila delphie, Franconia and Clarke are also : recommended At the East the Orange | and Knevett's Giant are two of the best : vanetiea The Kittatmny Blackberry is the best variety, and the Wilson comes next. But no Fruit Growing Society can do more than to recommend certain varieties of fruit for certain of localitiei, to far as its information ex tends. , There i< no man clever enough to know all the evil be doee. i inmorous. A Mean Advantage. There were a score or more of women gathered together at Mr. Johnson's house. Mr. Johnson is a gocd-hearted man and a respectable citizen, though be is rather skeptical about some The women had just organize Foreign Benevolent Society" wL Johnson entered the room. He once appealed to to donato a few cm. lars as a foundation to work on, and Qrabam added: "It would be so pleasant in after years for you to remember that you gave this society its first dollar and its first kind word." He slowly opened his wallet, drew out a ten-dollar bill, and as the ladies smacked their lips and clapped their hands he asked: "Is this society organized to aid the poor of foreign countries ?' "Yes—yes—yes!" they "And it wants money X "Yes—yes !" "Well, now," said Johnson, as he folded the bill in tempting shape, "there are twenty married women here. If there are fifteen of you who can make oath that you have combed your chil dren's hair this morning, washed the dishes, blacked the cook stove uud aride the beds, I'll donate this ten dollars. "I have," answered two of the crowd, and the rest said : "Why, now, Mr. Johnson!" "If fifteen of you can make oath that your husbands are not wearing socks with holes in the heels this money is yours," continued the wretch. "Just hear him!" they exclaimed, each one looking at the other. "If ten of you have boys without holes in the knees of their pants this "X" goes to the society!" said John son. in : chorused a. a. p. "Such a man!" they whispered "If there are five pair of stockings in this room that don't want darning I'll band over the money!" he went on. "Mr. Johnson," said Mrs. Graham, with great dignity, "the rules of the society declare that no money shall be contributed except by members, and as you are not a member, I beg that you will withdraw and let us proceed with the routine of business." in at A Touching Romance. The following is the hitherto unpub lished romance connected with the life of one of the most prominent officials of the signal service bureau He was en gaged to be married to a lovely, charm ing and wealthy girl. The eve of the wedding had dawned—if an eve can dawn—and they were occupying the same rocking chair and talking as in anely as only lovers can talk, when the fair one said : "Albert, duckey, there is one thing I wish yon to do when you are married. " "Name it, lovely," he replied "That is, petty, to have do rain on Mondays, because, you know, darling. in on — that Monday is washing day, aDd if the things are not washed and dried then the week's work is so fearfully put back. You will, won't you, my owoy ?" This young man's heart was torn, bat he replied: "Maud, dearest, my doty to my bleediog country demands imperatively that I shall whoop her as the precise sort of weather that Heaven will probably send impartially during the next twenty-four hours upon the just and the unjust, without regard to age, sex or previous condition of ser 8 8.33 am, age, sex or previous condition of ser vitude If an area of barometric dis turbance exists in the Middle States on Monday, how can I consistently with my duty declare that the probabilities favor clear weather with light winds from the southeast?

The reader will readily understand how they progressed to a quarrel and parted enemies.

"Ah, sure, yer lordship, didn't meself and me fawtber and me grandfawtber all vote for yer lordship when ye waspnt up for Tippery? And, begorra, did't we carry yer lordship to the head of the poll?" "True, true," murmured the judge, and he was visibly affected by the reminiscence. He looked kindly at the prisoner at the bar, and in sum ming up directed the jury to acquit him, though the evidence was very strong for a conviction. The jury felt the pressure put upon them, and the foreman, in giving the verdict, said, "Well, yer lordship, I suppose we must call him'not guilty;' bnt faith, yer lordship, there'll not be a sheep at all at alHoft in the county ." To which his lordship complacently replied, "Ab, never mind gintlemen—never mind the mutton. Acquit him, and ate beef." And acquitted he was.
