Alsace Is a great Industrial center

WORKING OF PEACH TREE
Change of One Varieiy to Another May
Be Done by Shield Budding or
by Grafting.
(Prepared hy the United Plates Depart
ment of ..,:, ulture.)
Sometimes if is desirable to chnngp
the fop of a peach tree from one va
riety to another, A grower may find
alter his orchard begins to bear that
lie has a larger number of trees of
some variety than lie wants; a Modi
of trees may prove to he some other
variety than the one ordered; or,
for some oilier reason, a variety Is not
well adapted to the needs of the own
er. In BSCS cases lie may top-wnri: the
tr. e either hy budding or by grafting
to a desirable variety.
The ordinary met bod of shield hud
ding is most commonly used for this
purpose. If the tree lo be top-worked
is not more than two or three years
obi It is usually practicable to Insert
Ihe buds directly into the main limbs
well down toward Ihe point where
they leave the trunk.
If the lice to be top-budded hns
reached the ago when the bark on the
mala limb has become too thick and
(inn to be manipulated readily for bud
ding, it is necessary first to head It
bnch somewhat, as when ihe top is to
be replaced with new growth of the
aamn variety, and biter insert buds
on the new brunches that develop
after the tree has been dcheaded.
When this course Is followed the buds
should he Inserted In the new gTOWtll
as near the trunk ns is practicable,
in order to have as large a portion of
the top as possible of Ihe new variety.
Tills is also desirable on account of
the subsequent management of the
trep.
Top-working Is sometimes done hy
graft lag instead of budding, the or
dinary cleft graft being generally
used. However, budding Is to be pre
ferred, especially as the wounds made
In grafting do not heal readily In the
case of the peach, though when SfUf
rly done the union of stock and
scion is generally strong enough to
make a fairly serviceable tree. Mut
trouble resulting from difficulties In
the healing of Hie wound are likely
to occur.
BELGIAN HARE IS SUPERIOR
Weighs More Thsn Other Breeds, De
velops Rapidly end Quality of
Meat Is Excellent
(I'm pai i'U hy the fit oil si.ites Depart

The Helglun hare is one of the best
rubhlts for table use. It weighs i e
than most breed, develops rapidly
and the iplllllly of the meat is superior
to all the others. The Flemish -unit
Is a Belgian hare bred exclusively for
large size, with the result that the
meat I coarser and less delicate In
flavor. These characteristic)! are con

FEEDING REFUGEES
American Red Cross In Paris
Quickly Answers Emer
gency Call.
HOMELESS LAUGH AM !CKE

Whom Were Refugees for Sec

Paris. "A thousand refugees fri:,.
the east of Amiens will pass thlTOSj
Acheres at seven o'clock tonight.
They will not huve had any supp: r.
some of them may not have had nn
lunch. There Is no food there und no
facilities for feeding them. Can you
help us?"
That was the telephone MBSSfJI
from the French minister of IBS In
terior which came to the American
Rod Cross at SOOO one day during the
OoVSsSa drive on Amiens, and the an
swer was "Yes. Emergency mes
sages arc no surprise to us these days."
The food was ordered out sf t'c
wan houses mid a score of vol;: ' i If
rounded up.
They started nt six o'clock the same
evening. One five-ton trurl; loaded
with tinned beef and condensed mil!-,

lime loaves of war bread; two car
loads of midnight volunteers, stenog

country where the level plains stretch
off into Infinite distance, broken only
by interminable rows of slim pop

Acheres. It was the Junction point,
wbere the thousands of refugees wine
to sion for half an hour.
Saluted With One Arm.
Lieutenant M met us there, sa
luted BtMRy with his one arm, and did
the honors of the station. A group of
WOSry, muddy "pernilsslonaires," most
of (hem over forty, just back from
the CbnStpngM front, were routed out
to help us establish our tables on Ihe
cinders between the trucks, and pile
the food where it could conveniently
be passed into the train.
They unloaded bread. scraped
cheese, epeaed tins of "bully beef,"
knocked the tops off the boxes of figs
nnd prunCS am! made plans to feed a
thousand people in half an hour, llu.1
I omewhere off in Ihe silent country
the train, pscksd full of exiles, was
-landing on ti side track. It was after
two in the morning when the ion;,
train with Its M carriages filled wit i
refugees came into Acheres.
A few windows were opened ; tired
faces looked out and voices asked, US'
interestedly, "Where are we?" nnd
were surprised to he told that they
were near Paris. The train was on
ils way, they said to Tulle in the Cor
rSUa department, in the south oi
France.
"Will they treat us well there?" an
old woman asked and they. In the full
ness of their Ignorance, not daring to
say otherwise, answered "Yes."
It was a short half hour. They
ISIlled them bread, they rilled the old
w Oman's apron with figs and prunes,
they gave milk to the children, ment
to fhe old men, cheese to everybody.
They absorbed cakes of sweet choco
late In a rapid and mysterious man
ner. Some of l hem were the much he
pottl posted women of Plcardy and
some were grizzled old farmers. Oth
ers were city folk, obviously not used
to third class travel. There were fam
alies of three generations huddled to
gether on their way somewhere.
Home clutched precious umbrellas,
some carried bird cages, some alarm
clocks. Some of them had (logs, some
had cats. But the pathos of it all
was not on the surface. Some of them
quietly told that they were refugees
for the second and third time and
laughed and Joked when they woke up.
There was no bitterness, no com
plaint, no despair.
Bread Pile Fell Away.
The huge pile of bread fell away,
the fig boxes were emptied, the tins
were all bunded into the trains. The
engine shrieked a shrill French whis
tle and the train pulled away. The
rescuers were in the silence of the
night. One of many thousands of ref
ugees hud hud one dreury midnight
SsSsI fur from hOUM one lonely meal
out of- hundreds, perhaps thousands,
before them.
A train load of wounded from the
front Joggled In ten minutes Inter. 'I he
men nurses carried water through ihe
carriages swiftly and silently. Then
the Americans bunded out the rem
nants of their stores of figs anu tho
train slipped away again. Mehlud them
could be heard the dull booming of the
harruge guns about Paris, and the vis
itors knew that another air raid was
on. They waited until the harruge
stopped, theu they headed back
through the defenses ot the capital.
There was a faint light as they rode
back through the forest. They could
see clumps of yellow daffodils utterly
oblivions of war.

National and Local
Meat Business
The meat business of the
country is conducted by various
agencies
By small slaughter-houses
in villages
By local Abattoirs or small
Packing Houses in towns
both
Using only a part of the
local live stock supply
and
Furnishing only a part of
the local demand for meat.
These slaughtering and distributing
agencies fill a well denned but neces
sarily restricted place in the distribu
tion of the products of live stock.
But only packers like Swift &
Company, organized on a national
scale, are able to undertake the ser
vice that is more vitally important,
involving
An Obligation to the Producer
To purchase for spot cash all the
live stock the producer may send
to market for slaughter.
An Obligation to the Consumer
To make available to every con
sumer, everywhere, in season and
out, the full supply and variety of
meat products, of the highest
standard that the market affords.
