Pump Not Working Well.
J. I. Met), A well 31 feet deep
contains iz icet or water. A plpo 1'4
Inches In diameter leads from tho
well to tbo stable, a distance of 110

wun tbo pump?
In thla Instance It appears that
either tho cylinder la too amall or too
high In tho wheel or that tho valve
Is looso In tho cylinder and leaking
air. ir tho latter Is the case, tbo plpo
empties after each operation, and tho
wholo has to bo refilled wl'h a looso
valve, which accounts for the Isrga
number of strokes nccesssry. It the
cylinder la too amall, It would rcqulro
a largo number of atrokea to bring
the water up to that point In the well,

Transplanting Bearing Apple Trass.
Sub. What la tho best tlmo of year
to transplant apple trees that have
been Leurlng about four ycara?
Tho best tlmo to transplant apple
trees Is early In tho spring, as soon
as tho soli Is dry enough, I fear, how
ever, that to transplant applo trees
which havo been bearing for four
jcara would not bo a very successful
undertaking and 1 would not adtlie
doing so. It would bo much better to
leave tho trees whero they are, even
If It wero necessary to uso tho ground
about them for something else, and to
plant joung trees on tho spot Intended
for these bearing onca. If, however, It
la determined to transplant tho trees
at any cost, tho work should bo very
carefully dona and as many roots as
possible kept on, The trees should b
headed back severely, at leaat twi
ycara' growth bring taken oft al

Transplanting Rhubarb,
I A. 0. What Is the best llmo to
transplant rhubarb which was grown
from seed sown last spring?
Tthubarb may bo transplanted at
any tlmo after the leases die down In
the fall; but with young tecdllngt I
hould advise you to wait until spring
to move them. Thero la danger of
small roots being thrown ahovo tho
ground by tho anion of frost, and If
planted. this fall they might havo to bo
set again In, tho spring, l'rennro your
ground this fall by plowlug under well
retted manure; or, still better, plow
out trenches four feet apart. Fill tho
trenches to within tlx Inches of tbo
top with manure, throw In two Inchea
of flno dirt and act tbo plants, having
mem tnrco feet apart In tbo rows.
Mulch each fall with manure, which
should bo forked around tho plants

W. II. C How mucn power can 1

Tbo amount of power supplied In
this Instance Is to trifling as 'not 'to

22 or '23 rods, together with a amall
also of plpo, reduces tbo original bead

Two Ideas of Farmlna.
In tho United Slates there aro two
opposite Ideas of farming. Ono It tn

Tho western Idea of farming Ii to
own great tracts of land, and this Idea
becomes moro extensive as ono goes
wesL Cven In Western Canada a
farmer thinks himself poor unless he
owns several sections of land. Tho
Idea la ono that bad lta birth In tho
daya when land wao cheap, it haa
lived on In splto of tho changed con

tbo great farm was a neccaalty, as
Intensive operations wero not pos

stock abundant, and tho animals could

of tho crops, eating them aa they
gathered them.

In tho eastern rart of tho country
tbo Intensive farming Idea Is In tho
ascendency. Aa a result tho farms
aro largely owned without mortgages.
Tho Intensive Idea Is making Itself
felt to somo extent In tho Wcit, but It
Is yet slight, except near tho grcst
cities, whero farming takes on tho
character moro of gardening. Could

sold too land would bo benuflttod;
tho landleas man that purchased It
would bo benefitted ; and tho general
public would bo benefitted.
