"Six ears ago," says the Auburn Herald, "William Shillingsbiirg pur chased an eighty-acre tract of about the poorest land in the neighborhood, on one of t he hi.rhest .and driest hill tops near "Newcastle, placer county.

A writer in the Kara I New Yorker says: "My neighbor had several plum trees bearing tine fruit, and all died covered with knots, but before dying 1 had secured a few sprouts and had some line young trees of each. When they were about six feet high knots some inches in lemrtli began to break out on the trunks. Filling a small scwingmachitiooilean w ith kerosene I gave each tree a dose; the knots stopped growing, but in about a month a few more made their appearance and swiii' old ones began to swell again. Then another dose finished them. The next year last summer) a few spots appeared, and t hey weie treated before they broke out, and all the trees are now very thrifty, only scarred where large knots were, as the knots died and fell off like loose bark, leaving dead spots over which the new bark is growing, if the trees are very badly adopted it is better to cut them down. I hey are so unsightly.

Coleman's Iturai New Yorker relates the unique way a Swede has lo ward o:T fros. "A Swedish farmer in llad ley, Saratoga county, has imparted some very valuable information to his neighbors, lie advised them tohave torches made of peat soaked with pe troleum, ready for the first frost. They had no peat, so they cut jn no stakes two inches in diameter and five feet 1-i'ig. and soaked them with pe troieum. A few eve nings since the niereui had fallen to thirty-eight de grees, the stakes wort" set up in the buckwheat fields, fifty to the acre, anil lighted. It was a tinedispsay of tiro works, and every man who used the torches saved his crop, while those who did not lost half lo two-thirds by the frost. The torches cost half a cent each. No branch of agriculture demands a higher intelligence, upon 1 lie pan of its followers than does successful hor ticulture. Such as feel their ability to ri-e ab:vo the ordinary level can hardly do better than take up Ihis wo.'-..

It has been clearly demonstrated that spraying with poisonous ingredi ents is certain deaf h to the insects which prey upon the vine or the fruit tree. This raises the question whether a spray could not be discov ered which would prove as fatal to a certain class of noxious weeds which give the farmer infinite toil and trouble, as for example, Canada this tle, the horse nettle, and in general, the perronnial that have bulbous roots, and grow from year to year whenever their leaves are able to reach up to the sunlight. Mr. E. liartholetnew, of the Kansas exper iment, station, while experimenting with sprays for the prevention of wheat rust, observed that while weeds appeared on experimental plots not sprayed, none were found on the plots that were tiirayed. The mix ture he used was c imp isel of six oumcs of copperas ami twelve ounce of potassium ferrocaynide. dissolved in a small uaulily of water, thou diluted with live gallons. The hint thus given is worthy of follow ing out by thorough experimentation. It seems reasonable at first sight, but in this as in all other cases, ejperif.ice is t he test of utility. A writer in the Florida Fruit (Grower strongly argues for potash as a fertil izer, saying: "In tie- spring of 'i2 one of your cor respondent s reported an experiment with potash on two groves which went to show that a lack of potash is the cause of oranges dropping. In fewest words, and writing from memory, it was in this wise: The owner of two groves of like character and condition gave one of. them liberal applications of potash during the season: the ot her wan not s: fei t ili.M.I. The pot ash-fo:l grove held its f.-.iit: the other did not, The ne:;t year he r -versed the experiment, land the result i-;as again strikingly in j favor of potash, and the grove ihat had the potasii 1 he year be fore dropped its fruit, badly, indicating that th potash lasted bat one year, lteinem bering this early in the fall of the same year I applied potash sulphate, and there wa; scarcely anv dmpping. In the previous season the loss wan ton or twelve per cent. A ton of Hit ash has jnl been given to say MX f rees This is merely -a supplement lo the regular fertilizing. Potash is the largest mineral ele ment in the orange !t he ash containing ! hirty-seven to fifty per cent) and it eems to be not oiilv food but a tonic. IVrnaps orange split t ing may be cured or prevented by a more liberal use of lotash. After killing the Sherman silver act congress adjourned, but next month it w ill convene in regular session, when the work of destroying American in dustries: reducing the wages of Amer ican labor, and converting thousand of industrious American working mw into homeless tramps, will be resuuHd wit li renewed vigor.
