CEEP UP FERTIUTY OF SOIL When Trees Begin to Show Signs of Starvation Nothing Is Better Trhan Application of Manure. A great many farm orchards have -een left in sod for many years and ire in sod at the present time. Many ire cultivated each year and the crop aken off the land, says Farmer's luide. In most cases no effort has een made to keep up the fertility of he soil. Apples are as profitable as ny crop grown cn the farm. If the rees are not taken care of, a farmer Las no reason to expect that they will ive good yields. You do not expect togs and cattle to thrive without reg slar feed, and just as truly the trees will fail if you starve them. The only lifference is, that because of a store f food in the earth, trees will live a ong time between feeds. This is so rue that young trees growing on rich and need no feed until after the fruit ng years begin. But after a tree has orne three or four crops, it Will be nuch less vigorous. The leaves will be smaller and of a lighter color, and hey will be noticed to drop quite larly in the fall. The leaders will nake but slow growth, perhaps none it all, where a few years earlier they ?xtended ten or twelve Inches a year. Fhe difference will be noticed in the rize of the apples, for they will be small and imperfect. All these changes are danger sig ials. Your trees are feeling the ex haustion of starvation. The remedy a manuring, and nothing is so cheap ie the barnyard manure for it contains natter which the soil needs to restore ts primitive condition. Do not feed n a half-hearted way, for when a tree reeds only once in eight or ten years t. needs a good big feed. Manure ap plied at the rate of 15 to 20 loads per ecre is none too heavy. 300D PROTECTION FOR TREE Nhere Splitting Is Threatened as Re suit of Storm or Heavy Fruit Screws May Be Used. When trees threaten to split down is a result of wind storms or the bar len of fruit they can easily be pro ected by the use of ordinary lag icrews which can be bought at any hardware store. They should be six or eight inches ong and your blacksmith will turn the hekds into a hook as shown in the pieture.
