Herefli'P a few fruit tree pruning rules: Trim a little every ye, r» rather than much in any one year, p, trees require more pruning than most trees; at least one-half of the new growth should lw removed each season. Cherry trees require the least pruning; moiely cut out dead, broken or ''crossed" limbs. Other trees need a judicious thin ning out and, sometimes, cutting hack. If two branches interlock, remove the smaller one. Avoid cutting so as to leave "stub" ; make neat cuts close to union; paint all large wounds. Be chary of cutting off large limbs; if it must be done, aaw on under side first, partly thru, and then saw from above. Prune now or in June. Spring trimming induces wood growth; June trim ming induces fruit growth. Which do you want? (Note: On young trees you should'• want only wood growth until they are of good size and fully able to endure the strain of fruit bearing.) —From Farm Journal.

Havana, March 15.—While the first n.on',h i t the life of the restored Cuban republic has not been one of achievement, it has at least not been marked by any incident calculated to confirm the prediction that the ex periment of Cuban se!f-govjriiment was destined to speedy failure. On (he other hand, the govern ment ot General Gomez has still to present assurances of its ability wisely and firmly *u direct the desti nies ot the i.-.!aad. Cubans of all PRESIDENT GOMEZ parties seem for the time being de termined to forget their political dif ferences and pull together to avoid another American intervention. The general amnesty bill, which was signed by General Gomez a few days ago, gave liberty to hundreds of convicts throughout the republic, all but the perpetrators of the most atrocious crimes being included in its provisions.
