Wherever gravel abounds, no other I material can compete with it in qual ! ity and cheapness for building first class roads. If, now, methods may be devised for handling this somewhat difficult and clumsy material, at less expense, an impetus will be given to the cause of good roads. I want to show an idea or two in use in this town, and elsewhere, for loading and distributing ! gravel rapidly and easily 7. Anything j that will save human muscle and ecou j omize time is worth trying. Let us back up our carts to the bank i chosen and begin to open it. This must S be done right and with a purpose in i view. A few boards or planks seven 1 feet long should be ckated together. I After shoveling into the bank on a j level until an upright wall of gravel I one to two feet high is left, lay down the platform of planks, and with a bar keep it with one edge close to the bank, HOW TO LOAD GRAVEL. so all gravel will fall upon it. The ! shoveling on this flat surface is so j much more speedy and easy, that two j men will handle as much gravel in a day as three will when striking the edges of their shovels constantly against ob structions, i Let this shoveling continue, keep [ ing the bottom level, and the planks close to the bank right back eight or J nine feet, leaving the upright walls jon either side. Next set up four or j five posts on either side, five feet out j of the ground, bind them together with I 4xo crosspieces and lay down three inch planks, ne a cover. Then have a j pair of horses and scraper draw the gravel upon this raised platform. | Carts to be loaded are backed under It, and the drivers upset the floor, let ' ting the gravel fall into the cart. This arrangement is next in speed to a steam shovel, and will load gravel four j times ns fast as by hand. Wagons are superior, even to carts, if they have bodies constructed for the work. Their preparation is easy, however. Planks one foot wide are fixed on edge and attached to the stakes. Other narrower ones are fitted closely for the bottom, and the ends ®f these planks are rounded for handles so they may be turned up. lotting the gravel fall through upon the roadbed. This is as easy as dumping a cart, and. besides, it saves spreading a heap, for it may ho placed m this way just where it is wanted. These simple, home-made contrivances may mean increasing the stretch of gorxl roads at no added ex pense. in other towns as well os here, if adopted. An excellent tool to save strength and time is the six or eight-tined fork, when coarse gravel is being handled, and nowhere does it work *o easily as upon the plank platform. Another good thing is a stone-boat built with six-inch sides, if the gravel Is being hauled but a few rods. It must be rigged to dump, by hanging a strong ring at the exact middle of one side. When the road i reached, unhook the team and drive around to the side hav ing no ring. Put the chain across the boat and into the ring. Next stand up n fonr-foot piece of plank under the chain, back of the horses. When they start over goes the load. The bout is loaded in one minute by the scraper, after being drawn alongside of an eight-inch pia.uk that is kept on edge by stout pins of wood or iron driven Into the gravel. The boat, placed just be-side this, when the scraper is thrown over, catches the load. The wheel shovel or wheel scraper is a valuable adjunct where the gravel and roadbed are near neighbors, also. Somethin** where a piece of road is to far from a gravel deposit an to be deemed impossible of improvement, be cause of the. expense of teaming, it may be profitably worked when employing these simple time and labor savers. Re member that gravel is never lied tip by frost in winter, when men and teams are id!*. It is always accessible, and may be sledded during the coldest days.—Farm Journal. ORCHARD AND GARDEN. On-’ of the l>ent washes for fruit trees is made by taking two gallons of water and one of soft soap; boil well and then add one gallon of crude carbolic acid, mixing thoroughly. Asa general rule an old orchard should not Im* filled with young trees. The soil is too often exhausted by the growth of the former occupants. Bet ter start anew orchard. Generally apples and peaches grown commercially must he planted on a sufficiently large scale to be shipped in carload lots. Then buyers will he on hand to take the crop as soon as matured. One of the best ways of protecting trees from borers and other pests is to apply the modern tree protectors when the tree is planted oat. 8* e that they fit close ( to the ground and rot too close around ihe stem. NEW FRUIT VARIETIES. Their Merlin and Dranbneki Dt> ■crlbeil by I’rof. Uenoh of the New York Experiment Station. At the meeting of the Eastern New York Horticultural society Prof. S. A. Beach, of the New York experiment al station, gave an address on “New Varieties of Fruits Not Yet Intro duced.” Among the new and desir able varieties of apples he spoke of the Arctic, which is now being plant ed in the Champlain valley in a small way. It is one of the hardiest of the American apples. It somewhat re sembles the Baldwin in appearance. The quality is good and the tree is productive. Another apple now being introduced is the Bismarck. It is an early bearer, good size and fair quali ty, but is not a dessert apple. The Greenville is a very handsome apple, and seems to be worth trying. The Ingham is anew apple that 5a a anc cess in the west. It is being largely planted for the export trade. The Ontario is a seedling of the Northern Spy and Wagener. It has proved to be a good apple for northern lati tudes. The Home Beauty can be safe ly recommended for general planting where spraying is practiced. It bears annually and has an established repu tation in market. It is not a strong grower, and should be top-worked on other varieties. It is a good dessert apple. The New York Imperial is in demand as an export apple. It is an early and abundant bearer and ex cellent keeper. Among the Japan plums the Burbank, Abundance and Red June have proved the best for the market. The Wickson is the largest, but the flavor is not high. It is not an early bearer, hut is more produc tive as it gets older. Campbell’s Early grape ripens between Moore’s Early and the Worden. The flavor is bet ter when left on vines for some time after ripening; it is worthy of trial. The Vergennes grape is winning fa vor; it is edible in October and keeps until Christmas. It is not a strong grower.—Vick’s Magazine. PICKING STRAWBERRIES. \ViK<*onnln Grower (he Excellent System in Vogue on 111 m Farm. I put two pickers on each row, one on either side. Each picker has a stand or carrier which holds four boxes. The stands are light and are of lath with a handle made from an old barrel hoop. By the use of these, the boxes are easily handled and are kept clean. My berry house is sim ply a shelter to keep the sun from the fruit. It is made light and set on runners so that it can easily be 1 moved and kept near the pickers. Each picker, when he gets his stand full, takes it to the berry house, ex- PIC KERB’ STAND. changes it for an empty one and is given credit for the number of boxes brought in. I pay one cent a box for picking, but toward the end of the season sometimes have to pay a little extra. Each variety of berries is crated by itself and I try to have the boxes of uniform quality all through. Putting a few extra nice ones on top may work for a few times, hut tho people will soon find it out. My crates aye ail stenciled with my name, so that customers know whose berries they are getting, and by hon est packing the demand for our fruit is.increased.—Orange Judd Farmer. CONSERVING MOISTURE. Tills Is One of the Moat Important Proltle.i.* PreHnXetf I* the Market Gardener. Nature's method of conserving moist ure is by a surface mulch of leaves and decaying vegetable matter. Than to the soil is added humus, which is the great storehouse for nitrogen and moist n re. The uonservation of soil moisture is neofthe most important problems pre sented to the gardener. If tbe supply of moisture is deficient all the labor of cultivation and expense in the form of fertilizers count for little or noth ing. The importance of wafer to the growing plant can only lie appreciated when we understand how large apart of its structure is composed of water. The quantity of water in plants varies from 00 to as high as 98 per cent, of their total weight. There is thus a constant giving off of moisture by the foliage during the entire period of growth, and it must he made good by that which is taken up by the roots. The movement of the soil moisture brings to the roots soluble plant food, and nitrification—or the conversion of nitrogen compounds Into the form of nitrntes—can only precede in flic pres ence of moisture. Moisture may he conserved as follows: By (1) plowing or tilling; (2) mulches; (9) rotation of crops to increase humus; (4) under drainage; (5) ieasrning the influence of winds; (0) applications of lime, salt, etc. Ilnnicer In llntfrr r-oG, rt .
