Sarbning in ountllrn Lonisiana.
FOR FEBRUARY. Gardening should now be at:ended to promptly whenever the soil and weather will justify it. Never sti- the soil when it is wet The ditches should all be cleaned out, and the water should Pot be permitted to swand in any part of the garden. The soil sh mId be thoroughly spaded to the del,:h of a foot, at least. The surface should i ;. thoroughly pulverized with a rake. During this month continue to plaut onion sets, garlic, onion plants, leeks, beets, cab bage, carrot, cress, roquette, mustard, let ta.e, parsnip, spinach, seakle, Jeruselem artichoke, and late in the month plant Irish potatoes. But the above, except the onion tribe, mustard, coin, potatoes, roquette, and let tuce should be planted sparingyv, always reserving an abundante of seed for March planting, since most tender plants are liable to suffer from beating rains, severe frosts, or cold and long continued wet weather. In the middle of this month it will do to plant cucumbers, melons, squashes, and beans, in warm, light, well-drained soil, placing a turf of green moss by cach hill, ..-.. '- '-- w-.hn a frost appears near at hand, or in vwry cold nights when there is no frost. Two or three hundred hills may be covered and uncovered in a few minutes by a sprightly hand, and early vegetables may be secured by this means. Usually they will have to be protected against not more than three or four frosts after the middle of the n xt month. Work into the ground as lmuch well-rotted manure as po:ssib e, and rotted leaves,uueck. leached ashes, rotten turf, scrapings of the yard, and droppings of hen roosts. L., sowing :eeds in a drill, may a plank, eight inch, s wide across the. beti by the list ruw, to stand and work us, to be removed as eacih drill is plItutted.

The south side should be six or eight inche. lower than the north side. A few plank or pickets should be Lid by the side of thi plant bed to cover it in case of b-ating rains, or severe freezes, or very cold, wet weather All the land in a garlen that is not tciv ered by wintr.r vege-abc .-h.u l,u1 t.e ri-l'd up by sp:id. or plus as h_.ii possible, ear y ia tihe wi't..r.

A cheap anderdrain can be made by digging a ditch two feet deep and two feet wide, placing two rows of well burnt bricks set up edgeways at the sides and on the bottom. Cover with split oypress two feet long, two inches thick and charred. Then cover with earth. FRUITS, TREES AND SHRUBBERY. Pruning.-February is a good time to trim rose bushes Prune ,off all the deformed and straggling Branches Cut the sprouts from around the roots, cut out stocks and branches that grow too thick and crowd each other, and out back the tops. If the bushes are four or five feet high cut them down to three feet, except ruur ing roses; these sbhoui be thinned out to one or two stocks from the ground, and the upper branches should be thinned out where thee are too thick" This ittagunod time for trauspla:etine rose bushes and ot her shrubbery. Fruit Trees--Continuu, to dig the grass from around Iruit tr vs to the di-tance of four or tire eet. D. unlit spak, the ground near trnit tree.-, or disturb the stti, i y plant. ing and cultivating crops t+I near the trees, ereept melons and vines that do but lithl harm in their proper sessot,, whi.e the orchard is young. If the soil a pouo around the fruit trees, manure it. Trausp:anting -Most people think orang.e tres p*twerervergremrs rrestTrf; at Splaiut them in September or October; other., wl.o are -equally successful, pref r the spring for tra.-plaustig, which, fir the 'oNr-se tree, - ...i. :e :ii t1 I. -t ti If ;i plited carettil adid wI'ti it will live aIn do cell trausplanted any tile betweo Sep ten ber and April. *'each and other trees ought to be trar.s phlated before tae buds begin to swell, or at th4 time. Februat y is a good month f r ~p~Latg any. kind of trees, vines b or bashes in this to entry. In trans 1 awor do it in a hurry, and atways well. A cloudy day is they heat time !r!t work. If the sun shines, take one p au t a time, wet its roots, and cover with earth as soon as it can be well mus. 8arve as many of the snall roots Ii.n;: thejbsdyti the tree as possibt.,, and cut :i: tepto the tree back, accordug tl the siz.e of S li ,he tree out, one person shouid b it prigh,while another straightens out aln hsiets and flls in fine rich earth nith. Setiui. or lumps; and when the space is : illed dswith earth, water should be l l d isd till tle.earth around the roots is ° b in let it alone to live and grow in due season Cuttings.-('uttings from rose-bushes, grape vines, figs, quince, pomegranste, etc., I may be mode and planted in Jamnary, but they would have done betterearlier in the season, though they mn'y do tolerably well as late as March if the season and soil are favor able. Plant cuttings in rich, melow moist, but not wet soil. Three eyes a suflicient, two below and one above ground Cuttings should be made frm well-ripened wood, last years growth. Grape cuttings, and most others may be a :,:" length, and should be three-quarters L.i- 'ieugth, or more, in the ground, the soil pressed firmly around them and mulched Cuttings are apt to suffer in the April drought if not carefully mulched, and *e times watered. Layers-Propagating by layers is much surer than by cuttings. Scoop out a hole in the earth under a vine, three inches deep and fasten part of a growing vine to the bottom, pressing the earth on it upon a level with the surface around. This will take root by the next winter, when the vine may be separated on the side next to the mother root, and the new roots and vine transplanted in another p'ace. Layers of branches of shrubs of any kind may be made in the same manner. Grafting--May be done in February or March, and even later, from grafts just cut * .... tree. or ucn ared in fall and kept in a damp, moist p.ace. The best grafting wax is made of three ,uuees of tallow, five of beeswax, and eight of rosin, melted together and worked like molasses candy. Budding is done when the bark slips, from June to Octobcr. Pruning-It is time to prune grapevines after the sap commences running. Peaches, apples, pears, plums, quinces, etc., may be pruned any time bet.,re the bud swells; but we beliete this is the best uon. b fur Ltht work. In pruning a f uit or an uornameutal tree, cut back al. strgg. inug branches, bate an eye o the syumwtur y of the tree, cut out .u|,eriluuus brauches where they are too thick, and cut out old and uuth, fifty decaying iruanches. Young trees should b. so tri;mmed 'hat it wil un.t be tnc.cs.ary to saw toff large b,iaucit., in alter year.. It is a good rule .It w.-t fruit trices f., u year to year, to .:... e'::eh winter or spring, otne-half of " ,t, ,lcvi,,*s Ie.,,'s growth. Fruit 1, aves and brauenes want air and Iruo, and where they are crowded the prun ing knife should let in sunshine and air.

T~11llS COMPANY DERIVES NO IIENI:FIT FROI1M the mistortemes of its policy holher.. a, its pIli, i-. are all neolerfetahble after one years prlrriull have been paid. A policy iasued by this company may be kept is free by the amount of tl e"Premitnl eserv.r'at its crelit, and will.st lep until this reserved part of the Ipremiunlm paid has become abansted. The term during which a policy will be kept in force by the "Premiumn eserve," varies with the age of the party mnured amid the number of premiums paid. At theae of 3, the "term" is 332 days leager than tthe year for which the insured had paid. At the age of :lit two years' premaims paid, the"term" Is oae year and 30tt days longer than the two years forwhich the inr sured supposed he had paid, thus two premiums would make the s hole time of the policy nearly four years. Du)nring this temporary inarancee. a party can he fully reinstated by paying tle deferred premiums, and in case of death during the "term," the whole amunt of claim would he paid, deducting in the settlement the amornt of unpaid premiums due the company, together with six per cent added thereto. Its Policies have a fixed snrrenler value, the same en dorsed thereon, making thenm n fact a bank nrote on the company for the amount. Its Policies issued on the Five, Ten, Fifteen and Twen ty payment plans are, non-forfeimtble after the first years' premium has been paid, and not as in most rom panies. requiring two years' premium- to make them non-forfeitable. Its Policies combine the adnlvantager offered by all other companies, without any of their objectionable fea turbs. All of the popular styles of polieies are issuel. and the Rates of Premiums are as low as can be made with safety to all concerned. EQU'ITY ANDI JUSTICE TO ITS PI'OICY IIOLDERS Are the distinguishing feat'ures of the Atlas Mutual Life insurance Company. dec' tf Jyers Cathartic Pills. For all the Purposes of a Laxative 3ledi. elie. Perhaps no one medicinae is so universally required by everybody as a cathartic, nor was ever any before so aniversaliy adopted into use, in every country and among all classes, as this mild but efficient purgative pill. The obvious reason is, that it is a more reliable and far more effectual remedy than any other. Those who have triedit, know that it cured them; those who have not know that it cures their neighbors and friends, and all know that what it does once it does always-that it never falls through any fault or neglect of its composition We have thousands upon thousands of certificates of their remarkable enure of the following complaints, but such cures are known in every neighborhood, and we need not publish them. Adapted to all ages and conditions in all climates; containing neither calomel or any deleterious druE they r ma h takes with sfs5a by ulbody. Their aelag i.iroatts ei·ves them ever res and mskea them pleasant to take, while being purely vegetable no harm can amie n their use in any quantity. They operate by their powertal influence on the inter rrl viscera to purify the blood and stimtniare it into healthy action-remove the ol.stnrctions of the stomach, bowels, liver and other organs of the btoly, restoring their Irregular action to health, and by correcting, wherever theyexist, such derangements as are the first origin of disease. Minute directions are given in the wrapper on the box for the following complaints, which these pills rapidly cure: For Dyapepaia, or Indigetion. Liatleaasnesa, Langour and Loas of Appetite, they should be taken moderately to stay the stomach, and restore its healthy tone and acslio. I For Liver Complaint, and its various symptoms, tBloUs Headache. Sick Headache. Jaumndloe, or Green stoknes, Wlosss Oollo and Bllies Fevers, they should be judicionulv taken for each case to correct the diseased action. or remove the obstructions which cause it. For Dyaeatery or Dlarrhma, but one mild dose is geerailly required. For Ilhelmatim, Gout. Oravel Palpitation of the Heart, Pain in the side, Back and loinsa, they should be continnously taken.as required, to change the dieased action of the system. With such change those complaints disappear. For Dropey and DrupSical swellinga, they should be taken in large and frequent doses to produce the effect ofa drastice purge. For Suppression, a large dose should be Ltaken, as it prlestces.hede'sired effect by sympathy. As adinnear pill, take e o o.r two pils to promote diges. tion and relieve the stomach. An occasioual dose stinmulnates the stomoch and bowels into healthy action, restores the appetite, land Invigorates the system. Ilence it is often advantageous where no serious derangement exists. One who feels tolerably well often finds that a dose of these pills make him feel de eidedtly better, from their eletaning and renovating effecrt on the digetlive apparatus. Dr. J. C.
