IMPORTANCE AND IMPROVEMENT OF VARIOUS NATIVE NUT TREES —_ —r - ■ ... ; . Second-Growth Black Walnut Trace, Well Spaced to Permit Nut Produo tion. (Prep&red by the United States Department of Agriculture.) Native nut trees, such as the black walnut and members of the hickory group Including the pecan, have a po tential value not generally realized. Aside from the well-known value of the timber of the walnut in the mak ing of furniture, gun-stocks, and air plane propellers, and of the white hickories in the manufacture of auto mobile wheels, tool handles, and many other articles, and even of pecan wood In Its variety of uses, particularly for harness hames, these trees, when rightly selected and placed, form most attractive ornamentals. But, in addi tion to these uses, which alone are of enough importance to justify the care ful preservation of existing trees and the planting of others, they have an economic value in the nuts produced. These native nuts, eyen though un cultivated and unimproved, and, per haps, inferior in shell thickness and cracking quality, are preferred by many to any of the cultivated kinds from Europe and Asitn Nut Crop Adds To Income. On many American farms by-prod ucts or small crops make Important ddltions to the income, and in many localities nut trees planted about the farm buildings, along the highways, or In other unoccupied spaces, or old trees that have been left in the clear ing away of the original forest, are depended upon to add noticeably to the bunk account. Forward-looking fanners want to make their trees pro duce the best nuts and In the greatest possible quantity. First of all, every tree intended to bear nuts In quantity needs ample space, 60 feet being none too great an Interval between trees of equal rate of growth, and larger trees, unless on the shady side, should be 100 feet apart. A fertile soil that is reason ably moist is best fur nut trees, well drained clay loam being the most de sirable. Variety is next in importance to soil and location. Experienced observers know that nut trees do not come true to seed, and that the only w*ay to reproduce a variety or an identical type Is by grafting or budding, as Is done with apples, peaches, pears, and other fruits. Nurseymen in the north ern part of the country are now propa gating several varieties of black wal nuts, pecans, hickories, and butternuts by these methods, but due to the fact that active Interest begun only a de cade ago. none of these varieties has Well Developed Black Walnut, Highly Prized for Its Ornamental Value and the Nuts It Produces. been given much opportunity to demonstrate its usefulness ns a money-crop producer. However, sev eral varieties are promising. Mature native trees that are well situated may be made more valuable by top-working. By “top-working” is meant the replacing of the original top with a new top of another variety. It has been practiced for a long time by fruit growers to increase the value of seedling trees and trees of inferior varieties, and owners of nut trees are now adopting the method. The steps to be taken are: (1) The selection of trees, taking into account the things just mentioned; (2) the choice of varieties to be used, and the making sure of scions or bud sticks at the proper time; (3) the cutting back of the tops during the latter part of the dormant period or very early in the spring; (4) the actual process of grafting or budding; and (5) the! subsequent care of the new growth. Cutting Back the Tops. In cutting back the tops preparatory to budding or grafting, certain rules should be rigidly followed: (1) No cut should be made where a limb is mere than six Inches in dliimeter, and a limit of three inches is preferred; (2) all chts should be made so they will lien! of themselves If. by chance, they receive no further attention; (8) cu’h should be made in late winter while the trees are still dormant, or, at the latest, Just before the leaves appear; (4) cuts should always be made slightly above a bud, which will as sure renewal In case the graft should fall. Grafting may be done by the com mon cleft method or tne slip-bark method. The former Is usually em ployed when the tree is still dormant and the latter at any time during the growing period, but the scions used must always be dormant, and .as scions in that condition are seldom available after the first of April neither method Is of much interest just now. It is now too late to top work trees this season, but those that have been cut back and small trees that may be budded without cutting back may be left until late summer or autumn, so that scions (then called bud sticks) of the better varieties may be obtained and buds from them in serted In the bark of the new shoots. Specially devised tools for remov ing frpds from the bud sUcks and for removing pieces of bark of Identl cal size from the stock are on the market. Several are illustrated In Farmers’ Bulletin 700, Pecan Culture, which contains much information of Interest to nut propagators, and which may he obtained by writing, to the Department of Agriculture. Washing ton. D. C. Budding by the “patch bud" method may be done at any time when the bark of the stock slips readily. On trees of rapid growth the bark will slip at almost any time in the summer. On young trees not cut back budding may be done in the first half of the growing season, whereas new shoots grown from below cut-off tops should be of sufficient size for budding during the latter half of the season. Dry spells frequently cause the bark to tighten, but rains will loosen It later. The season for bud ding sometimes extends until the trees begin to go dormant. During the lat ter half of the season buds may be selected from those formed at the hase of the present season’s growth. Most of them will remain dormant until the following spring. DEATH WARRANTS FOR ALL INFERIOR SIRES Farmers List Stock and Agree to Use Only Purebreds Liv® Stock Owners Show Determina tion to Put Herds of Entire Com munity on Better Paying Basis—Many Enroll. (Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) The determination of groups and as soclationa of live-stock owners to put herds of entire communities on a bet ter paying basis is shown by records of the United States Department of Agriculture in connection with its bet ter-sires activities. Participation in the federal-state campaign for “Better Sires-Better Stock” Involves the sign ing of a blank in which a farmer lists his breeding stock and agrees to use purebred sires for all classes of farm animals kept. The blanks are dis tributed in most cases by county agents and are virtually death war runts for grade and scrub sires. In one day recently the department received 182 such blanks signed by farmers In Rockingham county, Vir ginia, and Indorsed by Charles W. Wampler, county agent. Other large numbers received In one day from in dividual communities were 39 from Green county, Ohio, and 37 from Guernsey county, Ohio. Purebred sires of inferior quality are often disposed of along with scrubs and grades in accordance with the requirement that the purebreds listed must be of sufficient merit to be worthy of heading herds and flocks. COLLAR OF BIG IMPORTANCE Should Fit Neck and Shoulders of Horse to Prevent Sores—Bathe in Salt Water. Since the power of a horse is ap plied through the collar, it is of nt* most importance that the collar should tit the neck and shoulders. Careless ness In using badly fitting collars not only develops sores and ugly scars but many times causes horses to become balky. Horses’ shoulders should be bathed in salt water every evening in harden them. &f>e HOOVER J Be»t Vacuum Cleaner on EZ>e MarKet SHOSHOWE ELECTRIC light and power co.
