'WHAT TO DO WITH TIIR Tltr.ES."
Tho Intensity ol tho cold does not
seem to havo been most sorere Id the
northern part ol the state, lor In many
instances the reports show a lower do

consider that SJ to SO degrees below

bark and evrn the bodies to burst, we
mar he suro ol serlaus duruage. This
haa been the earn In thla inalance.

killed, and wit will likely havo very
few, II an), peaches in thn stnlu.
YVnrsn than this, I ho trees uro badly

stubs about al ur eight feel high. II

In other words, de-horn the trees. It
the trees havo bursted slightly then
cut on tho bursted bark and cover
with grafting waa. II the bars: has
loosened all around the tree or ao lar
arouod.tbat it caonot recover, then
cut the tree of! at the ground end 1st
a sprout grow and make a new tree.
Tho pear buds are also badly
Injured and we can expect only a
partial crop ot pears at best. Many
nl the pear trees are damaged and
they should be cut bask not quite
so severely as the peach.
Tho plum budf-Japnn variety- are
about all killed, and tho trees Injured
In some Instances as badly as the
peach. Treat them the same aa the
peach. Other plums, of the Wild
(loose typo, are all right tor a crop
Tho cherry buds ol tho Morella
variety like the Ey. lllchruood, are
In cood condition for a crop ol
fruit, and the trees are very slight'

varieties are killed, but most ol
the hardyi varlrtlea are still lo

In many localities, however, the
trees themselves are badly damaged.
caused by the rupture ol the bark,
aud semcllmes the Iree Itself, II this
bursting ol the bark is such that
the bark Is loose alt around the
tree, then the treo had better bo
cut down to the ground or lo the
snuw lino, and a sprout trained
Inr a new tree. II it bo only
slightly loosened, an Inch or so
wide, theo cut off the loose bark,
cover the part with gralting wai
and then cut back lite top nl the
tree, though not quite sn severel)
as the peach. II the wood la sim
ply discolored, then a sot ere tup

will vrry likely recover. It is
astonishing how quickly some ol
thoso Ireos will recover II they are

must do, If it has to go to the

lully on-half. The cane, have uctu
badly killed In many localities, nnd
where such is tho ca they had
better all bo cut oil close to the
ground and burned up The black
berry crop will short only about
one-fourth among our hardy varie
ties When they are killed treat the
same as the raspberry
Thn grape crop will still be good,
only excepting some ol the tender
varieties. II there ever was a lime
when the trutt grower could have
n general cleaning up In nearly all
parts ol the orchard and garden,
then this year Is tho time When
you cut off this wood burn It up
by thus dolug ou will destroy
rasny Insects, their eggs and much

us so much damage. Wo may l-e
partially treo from their destructive

In all this work this Spring let
us remember that although there

II tho top Is all cut off, yet If ll

the attempt and lliu treo dlrs.
In conclusion, while we connot as
pect a great crop ot Irult this tear,
yet we should get good prices lor
everything we bato to soil. The
great extent ol country where tho
damage has been severo gives us
promise ol a very short crop, and it
will surely pay us lo lake good care
of all vo may have. Never was there
a winter when so largo a portion of
our country was so tiauiy tiamagen
by one sliiglo storm. It extended
from the Atlantia to. the Itockles and
Irom the (lull In thu northern limit ul

in all this disttlct but Is badly In

Do not neglect your trees lint give
them the proper treatment and In
many instances iney.wm ue in enapo
