Home doubt is thrown uikiii the "cavern theory" of the minor earthquakes by the pub lication of Prof. O'lleillys catalogue of British earthquakes and its accompanying map. Tlie data show that during tho period embraced in the view, Ireland has lieen less subject to earthquakes than England and Walen. In the face of this revelation is tho fact tlint Ireland is remarkably mid exces sively undermined by cavernous formations, , so that if they really givo riso to i-arthouake shocks, it should have suffered more from j them than any other country represented.

When plants are removed from tbo soil In which the need cennlnuteil, u consider' able sho k isexiierieiiced unless ureut care Is exercised in transplanting them to their ( new bed. The important ojierution of transplanting Is projK-rly perfornu-d when the equilibrium between the fuitctiona of the roota und the leave la soonest tn tablishwl. If plants are tnuisplanted to a wet and particularly heavy soil, the part preaatxl to the roots will bake nml con tract, leaving i'n paces near the roota. Tlie earth into which plants lire to be ' shifted Khould bo freshly dug, na this seems to encourage, nil curly emission of young rootlets; and it should la? as line na possible, so thut every part of the roots may come in contuct with noil and moisture. i If thu earth 1ms been freshly stirred j and Is moist enough to allow plant intr holea to lw made by tho dibble, without 1 cuving In, and the soil Is not very windy, new roots will hooh liegm to grow, una tho warm soil will push these rapidly for wurd. ntoi'KR VSK (iF THE DIIIHLK. A. Ocmler, In some very sound advice given to truck farmers of the south, furnishes directions that may la? wifely followed in any locality where vegetable mid Mriiw Urry plants ure grown. Fol lowing are some of his suggestions: In . ..... 1. ..I....... ..t. .1... L-lrnu. transplanting sucu pi.uu n.- i-ni."-lierry, the librous nsits should be opened j out as much its possible, while the root of i the tap rosited plant, as tlie ruoixigo, oeet, etc., should be placed regularly up and down and not bent upon itself. If But b risitis Is'iit, the nutritive matter in de scending from the lsixes will bo inter rupted at the bend, and new rts.tlets will be slow to appear lieyond it. In trans planting, the soil ought to be uniformly, but not harshly, pressed to the routs their entire length, from the extreme lowvr point upward. With tlie exception of asparagus, horse radish, onions und such phint.s us emit new risits nlon the lower portion of the stem, us tomatoes, cabbage, etc., it in a safe rule to put down the plant to tho depth of which it originally grew. Iu sandy soil it sometimes ln-coincs necessary, in a drought., during nu entire transplant ing season, to water the plants after they are set out. In this case the watered surface should be covered w ith dry soil to prevent linking. In a loose, tine, light soil, free from sticks, stones, pebbles, etc., the band alone Is often used in transplanting on u small scale, but either the planting stick or dibble, or the trowel, is preferable. The trowel is the safer Implement in the hands of an unskilled workman. In using the dibble, it is thurst into the soil to at least the full depth at which the plant is to be inserted, the hole is then widened by a rotary motion of the implement. 'To insert the plant properly, it is held between tlie thumb und the index finger of Ihe left band, and thus placed in the hole; the dibble is then plunged into the ground two or three inches from the plant, In a direction with its point toward and u little below the end of the nsit. The en graving, taken from Truck Farming, shows the bole, umilo by the dibble with the root of the plant within il. The dib ble is thrust into the ground, ready to fix the root in place, by using tlie point (a) as a fulcrum and moving the kindle of the dibble from b to c the soil will be pressed to the root for its entire length from u to c. If this be done with sullicient force, it will lix the delicate plant (irmly in the soil. If, on the other he. id, I lie dibble is inserted jMTpendii-.i!;:il.v or parallel with the plant instead ot at an angle, or if it be partly withdrawn Is-fore the movement from b to c Is completed, the soil will only be pressed to the root at the top, leaving its more important part loowly suspended in un open excavation of the soil. riiiidhig proceeds lno.-l conveniently from h it to right. When the trowel is employed the operation is the same, ex cept that the implement is inserted in front of the plant instead of at its side. Morses That Sell Well. There Is no branch of the stink industry (hat. with judicious management, pays better than rearing horses. Farmers may come in for their share of prolits in this iiulu-try if they will but exercise common sense. There are enough trotters; re member this und leave their rearing and training to professional breeders. The farmer's opportunity lies in the pnslnction of giHid, serviceable animals, which will sell at a remunerative price. Such horses id ways pay, and there is not half tho risk in raising these there Is with the lighter und more nervous trotters. It is only about one (rotter in 500 Hint amounts to anything ut least that makes a sufficient ly good record to pay for his trouble and brings a big sum extra. Wheu a trotter falls la-low ii certain standard he is tlK? most valueless of horses to own. There is always a ready sale for half bred pemherons, ns is there Indeed for any good shaped horse that will weigh from 1,'Jimi to l.oiH) pounds. The quick stepping ones prove excellent coachersnnd are iu demand as carriage teams, while the more i lumsy, slow going animals prove valuable as cart and truck horses. iillitHtlmi of (he 1'each. While the jicuch can 1k successfully cultivated out of doors anywhere south of 4J degrees north latitude and under nu altitude of !t,(KKI fc t. yet it is not a sure crop north of -ID degrees. But south ot this, even to Florida and Texas, it nour ishes with the greatest lttxurianoe. The dif ference of latitude must deturmine to con siderable i-xteiit the value of a variety, yet experience has proven that some varieties do well w herever tho la ach w ill succeed at all. These varieties are justly regarded as most valuable tor general cultivation, l're-emlnent among these hardier sorts Uiud the Craw fords aud Mixon, high ! HI I I P' II type of tho white and yellow vurletlos, respectively. A divenity of opinion exist among In telligent growers iu regard to tho height of the bead of a peiuh tree, or rather nt what bci,-lit the bead should bo ii Cowed to ls'.'ii to form. The arguments ad vanced by advocates of low heads are two: First, that the fruit Is nearer the ground and more easily picked; accond, thut the low h.Mits withstand tho storms better und are not ko easily blown down. Crow ers opposed to low heads claim that the lower branches die for want of nufilcicnt air and sunshine, nnd that low heads pre vent convenient cultivation. J. A. Ful ton, a will known authority In tho peach growing district of Delaware, thinks three feet the proper height from which to start the bead, as this admits of room enough tocultivuto around the trees with a luulo or low horse. I'eeiliiiK Com for Milk. Trofessor L. It. Arnold, who is con sidered high authority in till matters per taining to the dairy, advises, when milk Is the object, the following us u profitable fissl for milch cows: ) Munds of bran fl 00 uiiiiuls of coin in. -nt 3 CO 100 xjiiiu!s of cvtton si-tsl meal 1 43 $s n which gives st 1.Q1 as the cost of 100 pounds of the mixture, or if any or all the materials can be purchased ut lower Ugures, the cost of tho compound will lie proportionately less. On the Biibject of how to feed ground rations, lWcssor Arnold says that there Is no advantage in simply wetting ground feed to give to (tittle. "It Is quite as well for them to eat It dry, and it U better to feed it so in w inter, unless It can 1 fel waini. When the weather is suitable there is some advantage In wetting the hay or straw to tie fed, und mixing tbo ground feed with it. Fed In this way the meal and coarse fishier go Into the first stomach, or rumen, together, and all are remastituted. If the meal is fed alone, It is liable to miss the first stomach and go directly into the third or fouith stomach, wheu it is not chewed over again, and hence it is not digested us noon or as well. One pound of the mixed food for each 100 iHiunds of live weight, mixed with straw, would Ik? u suitable ration for milch cow s. If fed to store cattle or dry cows, 25 per cent, less meal would suflice." A Convenient rigger?. Farmers ought to provide for pwine protection from the heat of summer and the cold of winter a place where the young pigs can Ik? fed by themselves, nnd where fattening as well ns breeding stock may receive proper treatment. A good pasture in summer and u sunny yard In winter are the U'st places for pigs the greater part of the year; but during cer tain seasons some kind of a bouse Is quite necessary for sw ine where most profitable results are required. Fir.. 1. OVTSIDE VIEW OF PIGOKHT. This bouse may be cheap or exjienslve, to suit the taste and means of the owner. A very good piggery Is shown in the ac companying illustrations, sketches of which were furnished by an Iowa corre spondent, to The American Agricultur ist. The building, a prospective view of which is given in llg. 1, is twenty feet wide and may be made as long as neces sary to accommodate the ntmilier of swine to be kept. Vet it is not advisable to keep too large a nuinlier in one bouse; when more than seventy or seventy-five are to be raised it is advisable to build additional houses. 1 1 LI Ll U U L TTll rro. 2 issidk pi.ax of 1'Ic;gki:y. A width of 20 feet admits of a central alleyway 1 lect wide, and pens 8 feet wide on each side of it, ns seen in Fig. 2. Kne.h sow should have two pons (i by 8 feet, one to sleep in ami the other for use during daytime. The long outside walls are -1 feet high, with a door for each pen leading into an outside inclosure, 12 by Hi feel. The center posts ure W feet high. Over each pen and under the center roof are small windows to admit light and air. One or two of the pens may Ik; used for storing corn nnd bran. From a never fail ing well, situated on higher ground a short distance away, water is couveyed into the bouse in pipes. I acts Worth Knowing. One thousand women own and manage farms in Iowa. All fowls that feather slowly are, it la claimed, hardy. Too large pots account for many fail ures in Mower culture. The 1 lerefonls have proven a popular breed on the western cattle ranches. Progressive growers no longer feed lit tle chicks an exclusive diet of corn meal. Fine butter is a luxury and -vill always command a good price in every city mar ket. The Augusta Rattlesnake water melon is favorably known iu liotli northern and southern markets. Tomato, cal bage and other tender plants tire often saved at time of trans planting by dipping the roots into manure water and rich earth mixed to aliout the consistency of thin mush. Profitable culture requires that care be taken in setting out plants to give sunny esjiosure to whatever delights in heat and sunshine, reserving partially shaded spots to plants that will thrive in the shade. No lawn can be long maintained in good order without successive rolling. Mow ing alone will not secure a (nasi bottom w ithout that compression whic h the roller tends to give. Boiling ought to Ik? done early, la-fore the ground becomes dry. W. D. Philbrick believes that soaking seeds, as a rule, does more bairn tbnu good.
