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
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,

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.

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"

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
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
Grafting--May be done in February or
March, and even later, from grafts just cut

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

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

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
