In setting out raspberries, Mr. 1'hll
briek saj s vvc should be careful nud
set the row 8 six feet apart, and the
plants two and a half feet apart in the
row. They should bo tied to stakes,
or trolliscd, In order to keep the fruit
from damage by reason of the liability
to be thrown on the ground in the
severe storms that prevail at the sea
son of ripening. Tho raspberry is a
stool plant, aud should be thoroughly
cultivated; the ground should be high
ly manured aud tho soil thoroughly
pulverized, as early as possible in the
spring, aud then mulched, in order to
retain all of the moisture.
, AN EARLY CMP IF PEAS.
There arc two distinct classes of
peas; those with small, round seeds,
and another with much larger, irregu
larly shaped seeds with a wrinkled
surface. The wrinkle-seeded, or mar
row, peas arc as much better than the
others as sweet corn is superior to
field corn. The round peas, while not
so good, arc much hardier and earlier
than the others. Unless the soil is
warm, aud they germinate quickly,
wrinkled peas will decay before they
can come up. The round peat arc
vastly better than no peas, and arc
very acceptable till the others come.
To have early peas they must be sown
early the earlier the better. After
the soil has thawed for the first (our
inches, even if it is solid below, sow
peas. If the ground was manured and
plowed last autumn, all the better; if
not, select tho richest available spot,
and open a drill four inches deep.
Peas should be covered deeper than
most other seeds. For varieties, the
Early Kent is one of the best; it lias
almost as many names as there are
dealers. Daniel O'ltourkc is one of
the names of a good strain of this jica.
CarserV First Crop is another good
variety, aud every spring new extra
early torts arc scut from England,
which usually turn out to he the old
"Early Kent'' with a new name. Tho
peas should-bc sown in tlie bottom of
the drill rather thickly, at least one
every inch, and ul first covered with
about au inch of soil. It is well to put
about four incites of coarse stable
manure over the rows. This is to be
left on in cold davs; but when it is
sunny aud warm, pull it oil' with a
rake, and let the sun strike the soil
ov er the pea, replacing again at night.
When the peas sprout, gradually cover
theiu with fine, warm soil, placing the
coarrc manure over them as needed,
until the covering of soil reaches the
level of the surface. If a ridge of soil
a few inches higher than the peaa be
draw u up on each side of the row, it
will greatly protect them from cold
winds. When tho plants arc a few
inches high, draw some fine soil up to
them aud stick in the bruli. When
the soil becomes dry and warm, the
main crop of wrinkled peas may be

SILK IN THE ARKANSAS VALLEY.
E. L. llevcr, of Hutchinson, Kansas,
who secured one of the prize at the
late silk exhibition in Philadelphia,
w rites as follows to a local paper:
"'I here were Ihirlv-threo conte-l-
auls lor the premiums oflcrcd by
Messrs. St raw bin g& Clothier, of Phil

best kind ol hedge', (an absolute bar
rier against animals) but one of the
most convenient fornn for phintiug
and gathering the fond of the silk
worms, 'iheir food supply is inex
haustible, anil they will become the
most extensive grow ei sol silk in tlie
United States. The iccoguition their
products have received fully confirms
their judgment as lo the best food for
silk-worms. They say tho Ifussian
mulberry grow s more luxuriantly here
than it docs in lEussla. It has with
stood the severe drouths of Kansas,
Nebraska and Colorado, tho extreme
cohl of Canada, and is the most rapid
grower wo have. The industry aud
experience of these people justify us
in saving that this interest can be
made a success iu this country."
PREPARING TREES FOR PLANTING.
Dr. (Jcorgc Thuiber gives valuable
advice on tree-planting iu the Ameri
can Agriculturist for March :
"Nurscri men, w bile they sometimes
deprive a tree of a huge share of Its
nols1y huriied and careless digging,
nettqlk-snml Inn mirrlinsrr the usual
h quantity of branches. The iucxperi-
j M cured tree-planter judges of the qual-
j ')' "f a nursery tree by the size of its
! loii. When he is told that at least
'm one-half Ihc top should be cut away
tieiore mo tree n piauicct, nc uiiiikb no
knows better, nud sets out the trees
just as they come from the nursery,
The many poor, straggjing orchards
all over the ceuintrv bear witness to
tho general neglect of the proper prcp-
v aratiou of the trees before planting.
I A nov ice has a great reluctance lo use
n knife mi Ids trrrs. It senilis a erent
waste to cut oil" any part of the tree
that he has bought, though he gives
hardly u thought to the roots he has
paid for, and w liich aro left iu tho soil
aa ui uiu nursery, n is iwiiiiii uuiiuua
Iffi to say that -even after the tree is dug
i f at least one-half of Its small fibrous
roots tho really ueful aud feeding
Toots arc broken oil' in tho operation.
This would be of little consequence
were the top of the tree reduced iu the
sanio proportion. Even those who
have given but little study to the
growth of plants will admit, in a gen
eral way, that the leaves evaporate tlie
water thus taken up. It should need
uo argument lo show that if one-half
of Ihc absorbing roots arc gone,
aud all the evaporating surface (the
leaves which will soon be produced
from tho buds) remains, this will bo in
excess, aud make a demand upon tho
roots which they cannot supply. Most
persons will admit that trouble will
soon come it they spend more than
their income; vet they persist iu plac
ing their trees in Ihc position of a
spendthrift. There is no one thing so
essential to the future success of an
orchard as tho proaer cutting back of
Ihc tops licforo planting. Before the
trees are taken to the ground, somo
careful person, who will use some
thought as well as a sharp knife, should
'x over them one by one! Taking

ihc secret or success in growing
cacti is to water freely while lliey are
growing, and to keep them warm and
dry while they arc at rest.

Earth-worms in pots will generally
succumb under liberal doses of lime
water and tobacco water. A florist
aUo uses successfully ten drops of car
bolic acid Iu n pint of water. Poured
upon the earth, the w onus arc killed
and the plants improved.
The Utica Obterrer says that a gen
tleman from that city in Louisville,
who wished In send some beautiful
flower buds to his vv ife, was at a loss
how to do so. A florist friend said lie
would fix them. Uo cut a potato into
tw o pieces and bored holes into them
into which he inserted the stems of
the buds, and placed I hem in a box
witli cotton to support them. A let
ter from the recipient acknowledged
the remembrance, and saiil that the
buds had developed into full-blown
flowers. There is sufficient moisture
In a good-siz.cel point to support a
flower for two w ceks in a moderately
cool temperature. Flowers from bou
quets or baskets may be preserved in
tho same way. The potatoes can be
hidden by leaves or mosses.
The wooded lands of Mississippi
comprise 20,000,000 acres.
It is computed that the forests of
Texas will supply tho whole country
with timber, for 100 years.
North Carolina has an acreage of
growing timber amounting to about
75 per cent, of her territory.
Tlie jellow pine forests of Florida
extend over three-fifths of tho six
counties of Putnam, Marion, Sumter.
Polk, Hernando and Hillsborough.
Louisiana's timber lands cover 15,-
000,000 acres. It is said that the lum
ber business of .Maine nud Michigan
will ultimately be transferred to Flor
ida and Louisiana.
A great pine belt stretches across
southern Georgia and Alabama to the
rivers that flow into Mobile llay.
The pine forests of !eorgia alone cov
er an area of about 11,500,000 acre).
There arc immense tracts of cotton
wood along the Mississippi and its
tributaries. The cottonwood tree
reaches tho height of seventy feet, and
planks from four to six feet wide are
easily cut from it. It is perfectly free
from Kuots ana pncn.
