How TO GET AFFLKS os "OFF'' YIARR.-
To undertake to change the bearing year
of an old orchard is something of a task,
but not so great a task but what it would
pay in the long run. With an old orchard
the first thing to be done is to remove the
blossoms or small fruit. A liberal dres
sing ot manure should be applied to tiie
ground to induce a vigorous growth, and
it would be all the better if applied the
fall before, as the late fall and early spring
rains will assist in carrying the fertilising
matter down to the roots, if applied late
in the apriug it will be of but little use the
first year. Different varieties will require
Different treatment, or rather varieties that
are not very profuse bearers will require
more vigorous and thorough treatment
lhau those that are. For instance, the
Fauiuse or snow apple is a very profuse
bearer, and if the blossoms are removed
the coming spring, the tree well pruned
and manure applied early so as to get the
benefit of the spring rains, it will be very
certain to bear a fair crop the next year,
and very probably a tull crop. That treat
ment for a single year will bo likely to ful
ly established the habit, If the few blos
soms that appear the follow iug year are re
moved, it will be likely to gel the bearing
habit so thoroughly established that it will
be likely to continue without further cart.
With varieties that are not so profuse in
their habit it is frequently necessary to re
sort to more heroic treatment. With such
trees, after removing the blossoms or small
fruit, some time between the middle of
June and the 10th of July, if the tree is
growing, vigorously (but not otherwise), a
cut should be made entirely around each
of tne limbs, cutting entirely through the
bark. A second cut should be made about
a quarter of an inch from the first, and the
intervening section of bark cart, fully re
move]. A new bark will be formed in a
short time, but the downward flow of the
sap will be arrested and the formation of
iruit buds so encouraged that trees so trea
ted will be very certain to be covered with
bloom the following spring. To confirm
the habit it may be necessary to repeat the
treatment. With old orchards, containing
large trees, few farmers will want to spend
the time necessary to effect the chauge,
but with young trees it is but little trouble
to remove the blossoms, and by giving
them the treatment described for a few
years thoroughly establish the bearing hab
it in the edd years, and thus double the
value of their returns. If the ring ut bark
is properly removed no harm will be done
U> the trees, even if repeated in alternate
years for a long time. It is a fact that the
bark can be removed from the entire body
ot a thrifty apple tree duriug the laltci
part of Juue or the fore part of July with
out any injury to the tree. By taking one
half or any part of the top ot a tree and
giving it the above described treatment,
ilie part so treated will Lave its bearing
changed, and the tree made to produce a
crop of apples on one or the other part
HAVE SHARP KNIVES. —How the "men
folks" would fret and sweat, grumble and
growl, if they had to chop, mow, or whit
tle, or do any cutting, with blunt or round
edged implements! Yet nine out of ten of
the "women folks" do most of their cut
ting up of meats with dull knives—round
edged, made barely usable by rubbing
them on a stove-top—with an outlay of
unnecessary strength and patience, hard
slices are haggled into thick and thin forms
with dull, over-thick knives; long beating,
instead of cutting the hash meat fine; and
it makes one ache—as badly as their hands
or fingers ache —to see women trying to go
through or sLape a piece of cloth with
shears or scissors, loose or rickety at the
joints; and as for cutting edges on the
blades there are none, Tht< remedy.—
First, we would say, let every woman,
young or old, learn to sharpen implements
—if necessary, taking lessons of the men
folks or some one else, let every
man who is a man, having a house aud de
serving one, give personal attention to the
household cutting implements. Ten min
utes a week or twenty minutes a month,
ot an evening or rainy day, will suffice to
sharpen the shears and scissors clear to
their points, tighten tte joints to make
the blades meet through their whole length
—not 10 tightly as to strain the fingers, or
so loose as to let the cloth turn through
uncut. Also to grind off the round of the
kitchen cutting and the chopping knives,
and put an edge on them; ditto the table
BOWME SEEDS.— Joseph Harris, of
Rochester, in his new seed catalogue gives
Lis }ouDg customers some good directions
about sowing garden seeds. He says they
should be covered only deep enough to
keep moist and that small seeds sucti as
lettuce, radish, Drummond phlox, aster,
verbena and pansy, need not be covered
deeper than a sheet of writing paper is
thick, if pressed into the soil and kept
moist they need not be covered at all. Pe
tunia seeds are easily covered so deep that
they will not grow, while peas will giow
if covered two or three inches deep. We
may add to the above that for out-door
planting it is a good rule to cover seeds to
a depth of three to five times their diame
ter and no more, so that large seeds like
corn and peas will be many times deeper
than the minute seeds of the portulaca.
All must have the three requisites of
warmth, moisture aid air. (but not light,)
and if buried too deep the air will be ex
cluded, Peter Henuerson finds benefit in
covering the seeds, after pressing it into
the soil, with a tiiin coat 01 finely pulver
ized moss, evenly sifted on, and watered
with a fine hose.
SOIL FOB MAKKXT GARDEN.—A deep,
rich sandy loam is the best, having a por
ous subsoil of sandy loam A light sandy
soil with a sand or gravel subsoil is almost
useless for the growing cf late crops, and
especially onions, cabbage, cauliflower and
Celery, while a stiff clay ioam with clay or
hard-pan subsoil could hardly be made to
pay for growing early salads, melons, cu
cumbers, radishes, tomatoes, etc.. but this
kind of soil, if ui derdrained and well
worked, will be the very best for late veg
etables. Land that is worn out by crop
ping on the start is useless.
A GOOD crop ol rtd clover, when cut for
hay, removes a large quantity of nitrogen
from the land, but it nevertheless leaves
the surface soil actually richer in nitrogen
than it was before, from the residue of
roots and stubble. From whence is this
large quantity of nitiogen obtained? It
must be procured either from the sub-soil
or the atmospnere. Dr. J. B. Lawes thinks
the former seems the most probable, as ex
tended experiments have hitherto failed to
prove that leguminous plants, like clover
have Bny special power of obtaining nitro
gen from the air.
As the influence of male animals is more
strongly impressed on the offspring than
that of the female, it is important that
due care be exercised in the selection of
males for improvement. One with doubt
ful lineage should be avoided.
A* application of a bushel and a half
of plaster to the acre on clover early
will infuse new life into it. If wood
ashes are added it will be still bet
ter. Ashes and plaster aie special fertil

llow TO CLEAN Kin Gi.oVEs.--Kid
gloves and slippers, when soiled, may
be renovated by the tollowing process:
Take a little sweet milk and a piece of
white or brown goap. Fold a clean towel
three or four times, spread it over your
dress, and spread the glove smoothly upon
the soap, and rub the glove downward
toward the Augers, holding the wrist of it
by the left hand. Continue this process
until the glove, if white, looks of a dingy
yellow, but if colored, looks dark and en
tirely spoiled. Now let it dry, and then
put it ou your hand, aud it will soon be
soft, smooth, glossy, aud clean. Take
c ire, however, to omit no part of the
glove in rubbing it. and see that all the
soiled parts are thoroughly cleaned.
This process applies only to white colored
kid gloves. For black gloves that are
soiled, turned white and otherwise injured
take a spooaful of salad oil, drop a few
drops of ink into it, and rub It all over
the gloves with the lip ot a feather; then
let them dry in the sun. White kid boots
aud slippers can also tie cleaned by the
first process to look "as good as new,"
and black kid boots aad slippers can be
restored to their pristine gloss by the
latter method. White kid gloves can be
died yellow or brown by steeping saffron
leaves iu boiling wafer for eight hours,
and then wetting the gloves with a spouge
dipped into the decoction. The color eau
be graduated by the strength ot the dye.
A handful of saffron leaves steeped in a

CLEANING BRASS.—' The Government
recipe for cleauing brass, used in the arse
nals, is said to be as follows: Make a
mixture of one part common nitric acid,
and one-half part sulphuric acid in a stone
jar, then place ready a pail of fresh water
aud a box of sawdust. Dip the articles to
be cleaned in the acid, then remove them
into the water, after which rub them
with sawdust. This immediately changes
them to a brilliant color. If the brass is
greasy it must first be dipped in a stroDg
solution of potash and soda in warm wa
ter; this cuts the grease so that the acid
has the power to act.
"SAI:* SYSTEM' FOK HI,OWKK C'cr
TIKCS. —Common saucers or plates are
used to hold the sand in which the cuttings
are placed. Make the sand one or two
inches deep, and put the cuttings close
enough to touch each other; water the
sand until it becomes in the condition of
mud, and place in the greenhouse or on
the parlor window sill lully exposed to
the sun. To make this system a success,
the sand must be kept wet ss mud until
the cuttings have taken root, or they will
wilt and be a failure.

scalleps of tlannel on the edge, A border
or centre piece, or even a vine worked in
some bright color across the ends, is a
pretty addition. A pretty bedroom set,

WASHING CREWEL WORE. — Make a lath

and rub the article to be washed in It. Do
not put any soap on the work. Rinse in
clear water but do not wring -only fqueeze.

Tony Prtator In Troublo.
Tony Pastor, of New York, who Is now
with his inimitable Tandy combination,
making a lour of the principal cities of the
Union, is recognized as the leadiag char
acter vocalist ami variety performer of the
Uuited States. He owns and runs a flrst
class theatre on Broadway, New York
City, and has gathered about him the best
troup of variety artists that could he ob
tained. The company has just completed
a brilliant engagement at the Walnut
Street Theatre, Philadelphia, and after the
present tour they will reappear in Tony
Pas or's own Theatre in New York City.
Mr. Pastor is the onginator of hie peculiar
school of character singing, and has made
himself immensely popular, having realiz
ed by his talent an immense fortune.
The writer of this article met Mr. Pas
tor recently at the Binghaui House, in
Philadelphia, and found him as genial iu
private as he is amusing before the public.
Dining our conversation I inquired as to
his physical health, and he replied that,
notwithstanding the strain upon him in
the discharge of his professional duties, it
was excellent. Hehad occasionally severe
pains, either the result ot rheumatic attacks
or colds, but any complaints of that char
acter never troubled him long, as he had
found out a remedy for all such annoying
affections. 1 asked him what the remedy
was, and he replied, "St. Jacobs Oil." I
then learned from .Mr. Pastor that he con
sidered the Great German Remedy an ex
cellent preparation for the cure or relief
of rheumatism, ami tha f it was about
the only thing used among professional
people for that distressing complaint. He
took bottles of it with him whenever he
went traveling, and would not be without
it, anil knew that it was very popular with
a number of members of bis own company.
A conversation held subsequently with
vaiious members of the organization re
vealed the fact tiiat St. Jacobs Oil had
bean performing most invaluable service
for them in the way of curiug them of
rheumatism. Nearly every artist in the
troupe used it, and was enthusiastic in its
praise, and the writer was really forced to
the conclusian that Tony Pastor was cer
tainly in luck in having so valuable aa
article kuown and employed by his in
imitably go<Kl company of performers, tor
it enabled every ouo to be always in his
place, thus insuring comfort to the mana
gement and genuine satisfaction to the
public. Tony Pastor would certainly be
in trouble without St. Jacobs Oil. At
least, other managers whose artists have
been temporarily misapplied, have noticed
the difference between St. Jacobs Oil in
stock and St. Jacobs Oil out of stock—
among the members ol their companies—
