Wtness, JACOB PEA?. CULTIVATION OF THE OIL FOR FRUIT TREES. The impirtance of good transplantiin has already been noticed; yet very fel practice it a; it shouldr be done. There is.anbther dpartment in the care of fruit trees, still more impornt; per khaps not so much so in itself as.> from its alinostsuniversal neglect, aid the conse quent disastrous results. This is thorouglj cultivation of the soil. For, of many by - dreds of trees which the writer has gedi, transplanted by various cultivators, more hanc bCendast from NE:0LECTED AFTER-CUL TUR F., thaf from other causes 1jut -togcher. Plersoniwho purcipase young trees treat thein variously as follows:' 1. Some kill them at once by drving them in the sun or wind, or frec'zing them in the cold. 2. Others kill. t)il"m by crowding tihe roots into bminl holes ini hurd ground, where they cnn never flourish, and rarely live. 3. Others set them out' well, out thit is all. Thiidone, they consider th whole work as finished. Trho trees are sutfered to become choked with grass, weeds, or crops of grain-some live and linger, oth ers (lie under the hardship, or clse are broken off b~y cattle, or broken down' y the team which cultivates the ground." An intelligent friend puirchansed fifty very fine peach trees, handsomelv rootedl, and of vigorous growth; they w'ore well set out in a field containiing a fine emp of heavy clover and timothy. T1he follow ing summier wvas very dry; a huguriant growt'h of meadow grass nearly obscured them from sight. W~hat was the conse quece? ilfost of them nedessamrily per ishied. Another pers5on bought sixty, of worse quality in growth; lip set them out well, aanmd kept them wyell cultivated with pota toes. le lost but one' tree; and continu ing to cultivate them with lowv hiced erops, they now promlise to affomrd loads of rich peatdhes, before the (lead stubs of hi's neigh. bor, jlust- mentioned, huve disappeared f rom his groummns. Another neighibor a yeai 'ago boumght fifty goodI trees. Passing his hiousme late in summer, lie said to me, "I thought a crgp of wheat one of the best for 'young peotch trees?" Just the. reverse; it is one of the worst-al) sown crops arc injurious, all low hoed ones beneficial. "-"We)ll,' answered lie, "I havolfound it so-my fif ty trees all lived it is true,.but I have lost one year of their growth b' my iwant of knowledge." llia trees wer6 exaniined; they wvere in an excellent soil, and had b~ieen well set out. All thme rowvs but one hiad stood ini a field of whiegt; that onleewas hoed with a cemp of potatoes. Thme result was striking. Of the trees that stood among the wheat, some had madhe shoots the same year, ani inch long, sonme two inches long, some four,- and a very fewv, five or six inches. While on the' other hand, on nearly every one that grewv with the potatoes, new shoots a foot and a hamlf could be foindl, andI on some the growtb had been two feet, two and a halfe i nde teh. this sedso ee teeok 4ol o . n.ropor ion. t-Q Jon ten stav int thid Va and r 0 U U fnu an ldteih j t tiitrg rthle S9 ak we tivation would whollyingo elr-c .Lccs are'freq 6ntfy mutiat icultl ntig the ground'with a team pobbvinge a di culty, arran' the en they w rk near the 1 ePt 6,1 bfibthe other ad tandoi.1 J6yrill W' forward one, use ltisg t es,. an' -hort whipple-tree, ain'dlace thstholo in the charge of a careful'inan whekndva that one tree is wort"nr&&an Nily I li" of corn or potatoes,.an .bi'd anggn eed be feared.
