If a man ihas a heavy load to draw, he lowers his head , by bending forward, and tiusows the whole weight of his body against g0 does a horse if he is peraaitted to doo. But if the man's head were so tied bacV that h" could not bend forward, he would lose the advantage of his weight; just so with the horse. By taking off or loosening the check rein on a horse at work, you not only increase his muscu- , lar power, but abandon a fashion which i is both cruel and foolish. Small Grain In .Orchards. It not unfreqently happens that wheat . or oats are sown in the orchard. This, although censurable, is nevertheless often done. The stubble, after t,li grains cut, should the weather be dry , and wam, is capable of reflecting the heat to such an extent as to endanger the lives of the trees, especially if they be young." To guard against this, the Btubble should be plowed under just as soon' as possible. .' By so doing the risk of injury from the reflection of heat is not only avoided, but the soil is in bet ter condition to retain moisture, thereby causing the treei to make Bore rapid growth.

No stock will do so well if confined to one thing all winter, and this, if nothing, else, should lead to the cultivation of a greater variety. ' - .. ' Iteclpen.
