Few People Appreciate Importance of
Preventing Bruises While Pick
ing or Packing.
Few people realize the importance
of handling apples with care while
picking, pufking and marketing. Ap
ples ure bruised very easily, and es
jiecially those varieties having a ten
der flesh or skin. Bruises mean not
only an unattractive appearance, but
a real waste ot fruit by having to
eui out the bruised tissue. Probably
the greatest damage from bruises,
however, results from the fact that
the bruises furnish an entrance for
fungus or rot spores. These upores,
or 'fungus seeds," are as flue as
dust and lloat in the air. If they
happen to lodge on a bruised or
broken spot ou the apple, they take
root and grow and spread through
the apple, causing It to rot. Wrap
ping or covering the apple may not
always protect It, as the spores may
have lodged on the apple before It
was picked. However. If the skin
and flesh of the apple can be kept
Intact and not bruised or broken,
there Is not much danger of the fun
gus or rot finding Its way Into the
To prevent bruising, apples should
not be dropped or thrown into a
bucket, box, or barrel, and In pour
ing from one vessel to another care
should be taken that the apples are
as close as possible to the bottom
of the vessel In which you are plac
ing them before the pouring begins.

instrument, scraping the bodies of the
trees at least two Inches from the sur
face of the ground.
A small diamond or half-diamond
shaped hoe, with a handle not over
two feet long, la another tool you
must have to get over the trees
In the late fall, most all eggs have
hatched out, and most of the little
grubs will be between the earth and
bark, within a few Inches of the top
of the soil. In scraping the rough bark
or outside of the bark of the tree,
you will get 95 per cent, of them.
In the spring go over the trees
again. In three or four days after
going over the trees the second time,
go over them a third time. Then
you can readily see all you have
missed the second going over. In the
third going over draw the soil back
to the trees, leaving the dirt a little
the lowest at the base of the trees.

It is usually better to protect rasp

If you have not already done so you
should go over tbe orchard and rake
up every rotten apple on the ground,
haul them away from the orchard and
destroy them.
The secret of dwarfing la to starve

that they can be held In one hand like
an ordinary houae plant.
If dead and unsightly limbs have
not been taken off the trees, now la
a good time to do BO. Paint with
white lead the place from which the
limb came. Cut cloae to the tree, aad
do a clean, smooth job.
In the northwest the state experi

for the pralrl* reglona. Stand

such as very amall growth
or wild aoDle.
Hera Is a Case Where Municipal Con
trol Would Seem to Bo a
Uniformity may be obtained only
through municipal control, for when
planting Is done hv property owners
individual choice will naturally have a
wide range and fall upon a great va
riety of subjects, resulting lu the least
desirable effect possible except bare
streets. Where the building lots are
of varying widths many of the trees
will be too close together, while none
are apt to be too far apart, as we very
generally overplant. Here Is another
bad feature easily remedied by muni
cipal control through arbitrarily giv
ing the proper space to each tree. On
narrow streets home owners will per
sist In planting trees suited only to
the wider thoroughfares, until a tall
furniture can can scarcely pass
through the green tunnel.
Where sidewalks are narrow and
buildings close up to them, the trees
will have to be planted close to the
street curb, no matter how wide the
parkway, else the tops will have no
room to spread and all the trunks will
lean toward the street. Here a small
tree Is necessarv, not onlv to avoid
the last-noted effect, but also to pre
vent overshadowing the front win
dows of adjacent buildings. In such
districts as the one under discussion
owners are also overfond of filling in
the parkway with cement, leaving
too little breathing space for trees.
With parkings already too narrow the
whole space Is Insufficient to allow of
best growth of trees and therefore
parkings should not be unnecessarily
reduced. Some eastern cities require
not less than six square feet about the
base of each street ^ree.
When trees are to be bought one
should be able to sharply distinguish
between young, thriftv stock and de
formed, root-bound cripples which are,
unfortunately, more common with our
nurserymen than vigorous, healthy
subjects. What use Is It to plant
trees whose roots have for years been
playing merry-go-round in a gallon
fruit can? Habits and forms fixed
while young are apt to endure, even
though somewhat modified, to the end,
Such trees should be dug around after
being in position for a year, and the
top roots cut close to trunk, allow
ing a deeper and better root system to
develop. Do not forget that all condi
tions may be Improved and much bet
ter results obtained by digging large,
deep holes for all trees.
Formality In Laying Out of Publlo
Park* Seldom Productive of th«
Desired Effect*.
The absence of a general plan or a
failure to comprehend and follow It
will result in the hodge-podge of In
congruities too often seen In parks.
The portions which should be natural
are often artlflclallzed unnecessarily
by gardening operations, or by the in
troduction of buildings, fountains and
all sorts of artificial ornaments, while
the portlons'whlch might, In harmony
with the uses to which they are put,
be improved and decorated In a formal
style are too Informal. On the other
hand, in the portion of a park actually
devoted to extensive and conspicuous
formal beds of tender plants and flow
ers, the drives and walks, lawns,
shrubberies and tree plantations will
often be strikingly Informal. A gen
eral plan may provide places where
the beauties of formal beds of tender
plants and other gardening feature*
may be enjoyed individually and col
lectively and places where those which
are incongruous with each other may
be separated by a systematic arrange
ment of plantations, which, while
forming contrasting or harmonious
backgrounds, separations, enclosures,
screens and the like, yet will them
selves form part of a complete whole.
Beware of Town Row.
town row Is to a town what a
heavy frost is to vegetation," says ex
Governor Hoch In the Marlon Record.
"Nothing wilts a town like a town row.
Better have a cyclone or an earth
quake or most any destructive visi
tation than have a town row, for when
these calamities are over they are
over, and the people, cemented togeth
er in closer fellowship by the com
mon calamity, begin at once unitedly
and bravely to repair waste places
Such a people under such conditions
are Invincible and absolute masters
of destiny. But a town row distracts,
disintegrates, destroys. It under
mines the foundation of things. Its
sores heal slowly. Its soars last"

At the time the old sprinkling sysi
