small stones scattered over the fields
and where it would be a positive advant
But It
age to get rid of
some of them in
constructing a
small loose rip
rap wall on the
line of the fence
and under the
barb wires they
become a visible
barrier and no
tread on such a wall of stones Fewer
wires are needed three Wing sufficient
where five or six are IWflied on level
ground If the wall is rather small or
if the barrier is to be rendered stronger
and more visible two or three furrows
may be turned from the foot of the
wall As no animals will wish to
crowd or lean against such a wall
strength is required in the posts and
the stones partly supporting them the
post holes need not lie dui so deep nor
are very long posts required It is
hardly necessary to add that the posts
are to set before the lin of stmes is
placed in position Fig 1 represents
such a fence
In the absence of stones a small open
ditch on each side of the team answers
equally well Tie- line of posts is first
veral furrows are plowed
on each side as near to ita practicable
and the loosened earth throwa up into
a ridge or bank A se wnd plowing and
nd shoveling will complete the
ditches and bank The wires arc then
placed on the posts nd the fence is
completed No horse or colt will wish
to tread down into the ditch in aider
that he may cliinb the bank and push
against the wir s The barrier will be
sufliciently visible If the ground on
each side is heavy turf the bank prop
erly covered with it may be more nar
row und steep than one made wholly of
loose earth which however will in
time become
well sodded
Two men with
a t w o r s e
team will plow
4ltA fiiFmitL nriii
make the bank 9
thirty rods long more or less in a day
while the reduced amount of wire re
quired and the shorter posts which may
be used will render this fence as cheap
in c instruction as the one with live or
6ix wires on level ground The
may be at least one rod apart if inter
mediate vertical cr with the
lower ends nearly reaching the ground
are used to which the wires are stapled
to keep them in position
Fig 2 represents the appearance of
such a fence and Fig 3 is a
n tion the
Kontal dotted
line being the
surface of the
ground Neither
of these fences
will produce heavy snow drifts the
winds passing through them sufficient
ly freely to prevent the accumulation
To sum up the advantages which
such fences will present- 1 They are
durable i They prevent heavy snow
drifts 3 They need fewer and shorter
posts 4 They require less labor in dig
ging deep holes They need fewer
wires H The wind does not disturb
them and animals da not throw them
Old board fences which have become
weak by age or stronger board aajeat
which are in
danger of being
broken down
by unruly
horses may be
rendered i m -passable
by the
partial barli wire aid of a single one
stretched on the top as show 11 in Fig 4
fueh animals have no disposition to rub
against a fence of this kind or to press
it and it remains safe and untouched

A Tree That la Now Attracting Some At-
aaataaa in This Country
The Iaj dnut which is now
attracting some attention appears to
have been introduced into the United
nit twenty five yean
The oldest trees are at Tower II
of Charles vuraden There ore two
They bore nuts at eight
of age Mr Camden writ -
grow very thriftily and are hand
some in shape and are very full und
r bearers The illustration is
made from specimens from these
Some fifteen years ago Mr Camden
6ent trees to General Bidwell at
Ikuneho Chlo and they are now bear
ing These and the two original trees
ore the only ones yet fruiting in this
country TVs tree is now offered by
some Eastern nurserymen and we
shall soon hope to know something
definite s to its hardiness and capabil
ities The species grows in Northern
Japan and is said to lie as hardy as an
leglans Sieboldiana is closely allied
Manilchouriea another species of
Eastern Asia though it is not recorded
as a cultivated plant in Japan Ir
Maximowicz the author of both species
says that he has often seen the Pi grow
ing and knows of no gxxl distinction
between them exuept the eharach
the nuts 1 Mandeliourica has oblong
and ridged nets while 1 SieUildiaiia
should have short and smooth nuts In
shape the nuts of the specimens figured
see illustration are very like tho
J Mandeliourica but their smoothness
places them in the other speeU s It is
very likely as Dr Sereno Watson sug
gests to me that the two sjseies run
ther and that the California trees
represent a variation towards 1 Maud
chi mriea
The species might be called with
bettet propriety the Japanese butter
nut The nuts are b rne in long chas
ten which often hold from fifteen to
twenty specimens Nuts tire shown
with the husks on and removed in the
illustratioa The shell is thinner than
that of our butternut and the kernel is
swist and rich much as in our species
The tree itself is attractive It appears
to lie one of the most promising of re
cent acquisitions
According to Luther 1 turban k the
species is of easy culture It accommo
dates itself to the same soil- a s its con
geners and grows with great vigor It
ly grafted by approach upon our
enmmon walnut English walnut and
its trunk retains the same dimension- as
the stock but it is by seed that it should
be multiplied It reproduces itself per
fectly true and if th young plants re
main bushy during the first years the
tree shoota afterwards and thanks to
its rapid grovth promptly assumes
large dimensions Prof Wickson
that the species first gained prominence
in Issl when the California State Hor
ticultural Society referred the question
of its botanical affinities to 0 P Bix
