I no cost for the planting except the ; time and effort required. Dry seed, I such ns catalpa, ash, tulip, maple and 1 box elder, will keep well over winter if hung up In hags in the barn; but wet seeds, such us hickory, walnut and chestnut, and acorns, must be stratified In moist sand and allowed to freeze over winter. These seeds sown thickly In shallow rows lu the garden In the early spring will pro duce seedlings that will he ready for planting the following spring. Many people have the Idea that to start a fen st planting requlies large and ex pensive trees. The best size of trees to plant Is a one year old seedling. Oenerally the younger a tree Is when transplanted the more likely it Is to survive the chnngo and to accommo date Itself to the now conditions. On situations wherp grass tPnds to form n heavy sod thpre Is danger of th- young seedling being dried out nnd killed. In such cases the ground should be prepared for the planting. Tin- sod should be plowed up a year before the planting Is to be made and should be thoroughly cultivated just before the seedlings are planted. Tho seedlings should be cultivated ns any other crop for a few years to keep the craSB down and prevent the soil dry ing out too quickly. As soon ns the crowns begin to touch the treea will take care of themselves, killing out of the young seedlings are not al lowed to dry out during the planting, and the soil is pressed firmly In against the roots as well aa down ward, there is no reason why there should be any great loss of seedlings In a normal year. Many pluntatlona are made with the loss of but few seedlings. Those that die should be replaced the following spring with new trees so that the planting may be kept fully stocked. It is usual to plant forest trees In rows rather than scatter them irreg ularly over the siren. The seedlings can he more easily and quickly plant ed, will In- distributed more ovenly over the ares and the regular arrange ment facilitates cultivation. It is also advisable to plant the trees closely to gether, so thai the crowns will meet in a few years and the quicker shade out the grnss nnd Breeds and protect the soil. Where the soil Is liable to dry out Quickly and become covered with a thick mat of grass the young trees should be rlnnted as closely as four feet by four feet Oftnr the rows are made eight feet aatiart and thn trees planted four feet in th rows, so that cultivation of the soil can bo eas ily carried on. It la not so essential that the trees he even'iy spaced in the rows as that the rows Be kept, straight lu many plantations crops, such as potatoes ir other low vegeta hies, can be grown between the rows for some years. In -naturally wooded regions where the young treea will grow without much tare they can bo spncpd six feet by bIx feet. Prepared Plant Food. Because there Is ofteu a surplus of prepared plant food at thp pnd of the growing season, there is danger of loss by the wash of rnlns. ThlB pre pared plan! food, mostly nitrogen, Is easily dlnsolvcd In water. The best way to hold It is to plant a crop that can mostly Btny on the ground over winter. This "cover crop" will ab sorb the excess end hold It till tho following spring, preventing loss. To Manure Pasture Grass. Ever notlco the Irregular spote in tho pasture grass? Understand why they are there, some taller thnn oth ers? You can't manure the pasture with a spreader, nnd you don't want to. But once In a season it would pay lo take n splkp-tooth harrow nnd drag the pasture so ar. to spread the ma nure evenly. It will make bettor pasture.
