Pruning Notes.
Cut out the old wood among the currants
and gooseberries.
The main object in pruning is to
take out branches which interfere
with other branches, and to remove
those which are dead, or which mar
the symmetry of the tree.
So far a9 can be done, in pruning
the wound should be nearly perpendicular
as possible, so that moisture
can not remain, as it will induce decay.
Also it should be quite close to
the body of the tree.
Children Gain Weight In Autumn.
Some curious experiments have been
made at one of the royal philanthropic
inststutions in Copenhagen. For some
years back the seventy boys and girls
in the place have been carefully weighed
every day in groups of fifteen and
under. There it is proved that the
children gain weigh mostly in Autumn
and in the earlv nart of December.
From that time to tbe end of April
there is scarcely any increase in weight.
More remarkable still, there is a diminution
till tbe end of Summer.?Chicago
