IIow to Traln Tendcr Fruit Trccs So
Tliey Jlay bo Easily Protected.
Mr. J. T. Macouiuer writes : " The
principal diOiculty in raising tendcr sorts
of fruits, such as peaches, nectarines, ap
ricots, otc. where tho chmate is too se-
vere for the trees to stand uuprotected, is
tho diffioulty in giving them protection
when grown in the natural form, and for
the benefit of any who inay be willing to
try it, I give a method by which I thiuk
they may be grown and easily protected.
Train your tree so as to have a branch'
less trunk six to ten feet loug, in a kori
zontal position about six inches from the
ground, then allow a head to grow up
right, from the end of this low trunk,
which should be trained fan-shaped, par
allel with the low trunK. When you
wish to cover the tree for winter, turn
tho head down sideways until it lies upon
the ground (the long horizontal trunk
will easily twist to allow this to be done)
fasten the head down and cover with
Btraw, or better, with evergreen boughs,
and if you wish to make assurance doubly
sure, place a few rails around the tree so
as to insure the forznation of a enowdrift
over the whole tree. In the spring, when
all danger from frost is past, lift up the
head and tie it firmly with straw bands to
a stout stake or post which ought to have
been set as soon as the head had begun to
form, also place a block of wood under
the end 6f the low trunk for it to rest
upon. To train the tree, procure a small
one not moro than ono year old, and al
low it to grow straight up, picking off all
branches as soon as they appear. In the
fall carefully bend to the ground and
cover, in tho spring straighten it up and
allow it to grow as beforo, and so on an
tu you have a trunk long enough to suit
you, then keep it in a horizontal position,
when it will grow up at the end and form
a head. Some have objected to this
method on the ground that the horizontal
trunk will soon get too large to be twisted.
I admit that in time it probably will, but
that it will soon be too large I do not ad
mit, ior it is never to De twisted moro
than one-fourth of a circlo, and a piece of
wood ten feet long must be pretty large
before it cannot be twisted that much,
and besides the horizontal trunk can be
trained much longer, in fact it would be
well for any one trying this method to
have several trees in training, and have
the low trunks of different lengths, some
twenly or even thirty feet in length. It
should be borne iu mind that the low
trunk must be protected in summer from
the gcorching sun to prevent sun-gcald
A narrow, thm board fastened abovo it
the whole length would be enough. Let
those who lovo delicious fruit, but who
cannot raise it at home by other methods,
try this one. It is just the thing for the
boys and the girls too, if they choose."
rost-Ofllces and Secds.
From the speech of Congressmau Long
at the Marshfield, (Mass.) fair we take
tho following : " The poat-office de
partment actually addreesed me aaking
whether 1 thought it deairable to discon
tinuo the offioe at I'ondville in my dis
trict. I could not nnd any such place.
inquired of the railway mail agenl in
Boaton, then of the editor of the Old
Colony Memorial, then of one of the
oounty commissioners. Nono of them
knew of any such place. At laat I waa
told that near Barnetable county, but on
the edge of Plymouth county, there was
a post-oflioo of that name. It was a so
rious question conveyed to mo from tho
great post-offico department whether it
was worth whllo, in tho intereat of publio
convenienco and of international relations,
to maintain tho post-oilice of I'ondville in
tho commonwealth of Massachusetta. I
was also asked whether, in view of the
fact that tho terin of the postmaster at
Ilingham was about to expire, it waa de
airable to re-appoint him. I looked into
the matter, and fouud that he had served
tho town for twenty-five yoars ; that no
body romemberod any other postmaater 5
that he had been a fallhful offioial, and
that nobody olao wanted tho place. So
aftor raaturo deliberation I advised tho
department that I was sausfled that he
ought to bo ro-nppointed. The depart
ment took tho niatter into consideration,
and af ter tblrty or aixty days re-appolnted
him. But I was saved from boing snroty
on his bond. Congressmen have becomo
8hrewd, and havo passed a law that no
member of congrosa shall aervo as suroty
on tho bond of any ono who is an oflicor
of tho United Statoa. But my groatduty
haa been in tho department of agricul
turo. I received a communication that a
largo amount of wintor whoat waa at my
diaposal. I was pleased and surprised. I
thought it would be a good thing to givo
my friends a little winter wheat. But I
waa told that a fellow named Sam Cox,
formerly a member of congress1 from
Ohio and now from New York, had act
ually lost his election in Ohio by dis
tributing winter wheat. The wheat
proved to bo so poor that his constituonts
becamo very angry with him, so that ho
left Ohio and became that raost unfortu
nato of all boings on tbo earth, the repre
sontative of a district from New York
city. But I got on better with the turnip
seed. I received a cotnmunication that
eight hundred papers of turnip seed wero
at my disposal. At firat I thought it waa
elght hundred pounds. I consulted with
my predecessor, Mr. Ilarris, and with Mr.
Ilersey, who is United States agricultnral
statistician, and detormined to have tho
seed scnt to tho varioua postmasters
throughout my district and distributed
by them to persons intorested in turnip
seed. I thought I had done a good thing,
but at Weyraouth the other day, Mr.
Ilarris said that the seed had been of-
fered him, and he declined it and rec
ommended that it be put off upon mo."
Horse Gambllng.
There ia never anything but rascality
in the horse-racing of our fairs, but tho
fact was nnnsually conspicuous at tho
Loring show. Among the farces of the
occasion was the putting of the drivers
under oath " to drive to tho best of their
skill and ability." Notwithatanding this
bland and childlike experitnent, tho re-
port in tho Mirror and Farmer apeaks of
fraud in nearly every race. The follow
ing aample sentences from tho report il
lustrate the aubject :
" The iudgea were confidently informed
bv a pool buyer that Woodlake was beinc
" O.ve of the bad features attendine
the horse race durmg the lair has been
the great amount of foul driving iu
dulged in."
" It was thought by some, early in the
race, that Jiiraest u. was not being dnven
to wm, and his owners were called into
the judges' etand, when they took a sol
oinn oath that their horse would win if
" Tms turned out to be the trreat race
of the fair, though a etrong suspicion of
crooKed woris pervaded it, and a smash
up in tho deciding heat onlv served to
strengthen this impression among those
wno aouuiea its squareness.
The Mirror also saya that " as usual,

usual" the dissatisfied exhibitors will
continue diasatiafied. By the way, we are
pleased to note that the Cooley Creamer
got firat premium, although an editor
prominent in tho management of the fair
is reported to have declared with oaths
that the Vermont Farm Machine Com
pany should have no preminms.

It is a common fault with fruit growers
that they aet too many variotiea. Three
or four well-tested varieties of applea,
pears or amaii iruus are worth moro ln
dollars and cents than twenty kinds.
ia pleasant to be able to exhibit seventy
five or a hundred varieties of apples at a
fair, but it doea not pay, nevertheless.
Enduwno labels aro made by writing
with a Boft lead pencil on soft wood, over
which a coat of white paint has recently
been spread. The paint must not be dry
when the pencil is used. The pencil
marks will usually stand up distinctly
abovo the surrounding aurface when tho
weather haa worn the adjacent parts away.
That memorizing of facts which cou

The consolidation of corporations, which

Great Itanch In Cnllfornin.
In her craphic illustrated article in tho
October Century, on " Outdoor Industries
ln Southern California, II. II. describos
one of the great ranches aa follows : " The
South California statistics 01 Iruits. crain,
wool, honey, otc, read more like fancy
than like fact, audare notroadily believed
by one uiiacquamted with the country.
Tho only wny to get a real comprehenaion
and intellicout acceptance of them la to
atudy them on the ground. By a slugle
visit to a great raucn, one is moro enlight
ened than ho would be by committing to
memory scorea ot I'.quaiization iioard Ke-
ports. One of the very best, if not tho
best, for this purpose is Baldwin's ranch,
in the San Gabriel valley. It includea a
largo part of the old landa of the San
Gabriel Miasion, and ia a principality in
itaelf. There are over a hundred men
ou its pay-roll, which averages 81,000 a
month. Another ? 1,000 does not more
than meet its running expenses. It has
8G,000 worth of machinery for its grain
harvesta alone. It haa a dairy of lorty
cowa, Jeraey and Durhain ; one hundred
and twenty work horses and mules, and
litty thoroughbreds. It is divided into
four distinct estates : the Santa Anita, of
10.000 acrea; Puonte, 18.000: Merced,
20,000; and the Potrero 25,000. The
Pueute and jlerced are sheep ranches,
and have 20,000 sheep on them. The
Potrero ia reuted out to small farmers.
The Santa Anita is the home estate. On
it are the homes of tbo family and of the
laborers. It has fifteen hundred acres of
oak grove, four thousand acrea in grain,
nve hundred in grasa lor hay, one hundf&d
and fifty in orange orchards, fifty of al
mond trees, sixty of walnuts. twentv-five
of pears, fifty of peaches, twenty of lem-
ons, and hve hundred in vines: also small
orchards of chestnuts, hazel-nuts, and
apricots ; and thousands of acrea of eood
pasturage. From whatever aide one ap-
proacnes santa Anita in luay, be will
drive through a wild garden asters, vel-
low and white ; scarlet pentstemons, blue
larkspur, monk'a-hood j lupines, white
and blue; gorgeous golden eschscholtzia,
alder, wild lilac, white sage all in riotous
flowering. Entering the ranch by one of
the north cates, he will Iook aouthward

chard to orchard, down half-milo avenues
through orchards akirting seeminglv end'
le8s stretches of vineyard, he begins to
realize what comes of planting trees and
vines by hundreds and tens of hundreds
of acres, and the Kqualization Board sta-
tics no longer appear to him even larce.
It doea not seem wonderful that Los
Angelea county should be reported as
having sixty-two hundred acres in vines,
when hero on one mau's ranch are five
hundred acres. Tho last Equalization
Board report said the county had 250.135
orange and 41,250 lemon trees. It would
hardly have surprised him to bo told that
thero were aa many as that in the Santa
Anita groves alone. The effect on the eve
of such huge traots, planted with a sincle
sort of tree, is to increase enorraously the
apparent size of the tracl ; the mind stnm-
bles on tbo very threshold ot the attempt
to reckon its distancoa and numbers, and
they become vaster and vaster as they
grow vague.
It seems a very funny miatake for any
body to make to call a live animal a plant
or to think a vegetablo is alive. But some
plants are so much like animals tbat even
such great scientists as Tyudall and II ux-
ley havo had disputes over them aa to
whether they belong to tho animal or veg-
oiaoie Kingaom. oponges aro very near
thedividing lino betweeu animal and veg
etablo life. Years since they were thought
to be sea plants, but now they are conaid
ered to be animala devoid ot locomotion
and having, of course, a very low grade of
life, and lesa intelligence, even, than an
oyster. When first pulled from the rook
where it grows the sponge looka like
wrinkled mass of putty. It is a drab
color, exceedingly heavy, has a sickening
ouor, ana js uiiea witn a sinngy mucns,
which drops from it in long sticky linea.
The poros are partly closed by a sort of
aea-bug which must be an annoyint.' inter
loper to the sponge-builder ; whili of ten
a rod sea-worm an lnoh or two in limgth
is found far within the fibres. What is
tho exact ofllo of the mucus lluid doea
not yet appear to be olearly sottled. But
itiacertain that when taken.from the
sponge and placed on still bottoms, new
sponges are produced froin it ; aud i. two
pleces of the samo liviug sponge, c r of
two diuerent spoug(s of tho samo spe
clea are laid sido by sido on the sea bbt-
torn, they soon grow together. Srx.nges
are found iu the warm waters in v.rious
parta of tho world, tho beat cominfj from
tho Mediterraneau Sea, whero divera

Off tho Bahama Ialauda there is also a
produotive sponjjo bottoin. The sponge
bottoms most sought aro in the coral beds,
fifty mile8 east of Nassau. Lylng on his
chent along tho boat's deck, the fifther
with his water-glass a pano of glasi aet
in a box fitted with handles, looka down
forty feet into the olear depths. When
he discovora a spongo ho sinks a alendor
pole, sometimoa fifty feet in length, fitted
at tlie end with a doublo hook. The
hook is inserted at tho rocky baso, and
by a sudden jetk tho apongo ls dotachcd
to be brought up on deck. The oye of
tho fisher has to bo trained by long expe
rience to poor into the sea and tell tlio
valuable spongea from thoso that are
worthless. Tho strain on tho eyo and

preparo the spongea for export they are
placed on deck under tho tropical sun or
hung in large festoons from tho little ves

the living organiams within tho fibro.

The oypross affords an instanco whero
tho approximato cortainty of its introduc-
tion into England enables ua to form somo
conclnslons with regard to its attainablo
age. Xhe tact ot lts being lirst mentioned
in Turner'a " Names of Ilerbs,' published
in 1518, makes it probablethat it was not
ntroduced into J'.tiglantl before the begin
ning of that century. But, at all events,
the cypresa at Fulham which in 1773 waa
two feet hve inches at three feet from tha
ground, cannot havo been planted thero
before 107-1, the year that Compton, tho
great mtroducer ot loreign trees into Kng.
land in the seventecnth century, becamo
Bishop of London. That gives a growth
ot about two teet ininoiirst century ; but
sometimes it attains a bigher rate, as in
the case of the cypresa planted by Michael
Angelo at Chartreux, which was thirteen
feet round in 1817, giving the aveiage
rate of over four feet in tho firet three
centuriea. Now tho cypress at Sorunia,
between Lake Maggiore and Milan, for
whose eake Napoleon bent the road out of
the Btraight line, ls not more than twentv
three leet in girtn, so that the tradition
which makes its planting coeval with
Chriatianity, would aeem doubtf ul ; though
if we take three feet aa the firat century's
growth, and take the third as the average,
it may evidentiy have been standlng in
the time of Crosar, as an old chronicle of
Milan is averred to attest. The Lebanon
cedar, first planted at Lambeth in 1GS3,
was only seven leet, nine inches (girth
measurements alone neod bo given), 110
years later. Dr. Uvedale's cedar, planted
at .bnueld not earner than 10 U, was lit-
teen ieet, eight inches, when measured in
1835 '. e., ono hundred and sixty-five
years atter. And the last cedar at Ux
bndge, which was blown down in 1790,
was one hundred and oighteen years old
when Gilpin measured it in 1770, and
found it to be fifteen feet, six inches
We should therefore be iustitied in as
suming twelvo leet as tho possible first
century'-d growth 01 a cedar even m Eng
land j wnence we may test the probabil
ity of the eldest cedars now on Mount
L,ybauon having been growing there in
the days 01 ivmg boiomon. ln the year
1000 the traveler Maundrell measured one
of the largest of them and found it to be
twelve yards, six Inches. Four feet
century being tlie averago rate, the cedar
measured by .Maundrell would havo re-
quired only nine centuries to havo at
tained its dimensions of thirty-aix feet ;
so that it need havo been 110 older than
the time of Charlamagne, and, allowiug
for a more rapid growth on a aite whete
it is indlgeuous, may probably have
been coimderably younger. Lonqman's
