tho Blato experimental farm near West
Grove, Chester county, Mint tho onco
beautiful place lias degenerated Into a
neglected wilderness with tumbledown
buildings, rickety fences, wretched
looking livo slock and weeds every
where This condition of affaire ex
cites all tho moro comment on account
of tho success of a private agricultural
experiment, tho Iloso nursery, which
was started in a small way In tho
neighborhood nbout tho timo tlio state
bought and stocked tho larm. Tho
nurucry has increased in size and im
portance every year, until now it is the
largest placo of its kind in America.
Its business in Beason amounts to S3,
600 a week in roses alone, and over
100 gardeners arc employed in the 70
The experimental farm contains 100
acres of good land and although it was
well managed for several 'years tho
placo was never self supporting and an
annual appropriation of $1,000 was re
ceived from the state. Many belliger
ent farmers in tho county say that some
of tho experiments niado by tho earlier
managers of the farm were of groat
benefit, particularly those made with
phosphates. So interested were the
agriculturalists of the country in the
experiments that they visited tho
farm frequently, and tho reports of tho
results of tests were published in local
newspapers and attracted a great deal
A few days.ngo a dozen members of
tho Concordvillo farmers' club visited
tho farm and wero told that thoy were
tho first, visitors that had been tliero
for several months. They found tho
placo in such a deplorablo condition
that thoy sent a report to the state ag
ricultural society. William Edwards
is tho scientist in eliargo of .the place,
and ho is assisted in his researches by
a Lancaster county gentleman, Henry
Klohr. Coforo they took charge of the
place thoy were not noted as particu
larly intelligent farmers, and Mr. Flohr
admitted to a Times- reporter that
"'sperimenls is all well enough, but this
hero farm would do a great deal better
if tho 'speriments was dropped and tho
ground put into tobaccer. The farm
house, a large, modern building of con
crete, tops a small hill a few hundred
yards from a public road. Fronting
tho house is a fine arboretum, which is
divided by a lano from tho main road
,to tho barn. Tho arboretum contains
hundreds of fine Specimens of imported
and nativo trees and shrubs, but they
havo had no caro for years. Cattle
have chewed, their shoots and robbed
tho trunks and hogs havo torn up tho
sward, until it looks as though half a
dozen sub-soil plows, had been ripping
up the earth. Tho brick barn is large
and well built, but it is in wretched
order. Its front roof leaks like a sieve
and tho stable yard is a filthy lagoon,
the waste of" which runs off into a
brook and is carried away to enrich tho
grouud of practical farmers in the val
ley. Two of tho mows in the barn nro
filled with sheaf oats and tho others
contain unthreshed wheat. Tho oats
are damaged by every rain, as the wa
ter trickles through tho roof in a hun-
, dred places. Behind tho barn stands
an old stack of straw and a stack of
weeds that wero cut and hauled there
to rot and be mixed with the manure.
The barnyard is surrounded by a
stone fence, tho rocking of which has
tumbled off in many spots and lias nev
er been, replaced. Four wretch
ed looking common cows stood knee
deep in the barnyard muck picking a
breakfast out of tho old straw pile.
Three ragged sheep, two bucks and a
ewe, wero in the field adjoining the
barnyard and an undersized jackass
brayed in a neighboring pen. In tho
stalls of tho stable M'ero two horses and
a pair of dejected looking mule, with
tails like old dusting brushes. Tho
stable is very filthy. At tho up
per end of tho barn are half a
dozen pig pens of the Quceu Anno
stylo of architecture. Tho stylo of ar
chitecture is still apparent, but tho
structures arc so dilapidated that if not
repaired thoy will soon tumble down.
In tho pens wero livo hungry, wild
eyed swine which, when Mr. Flohr ap
proached them, mado frantio efforts to
scalo tho fenco and devour him. Mr.
Flohr, as ho beat back tho hogs, smil
ingly exclaimed : "Thoy looks like wg
had been 'sperimentin' with 'era and
seein' how little they could livo on,
but it ain't so. They have lots to eat,
but.they'ro so stubborn that they won't
git fat." Tho four cows, threo sheep,
two horses, two mules, ono jackass and
five hogs constitute tho livo stock out
fit of tho farm and several animals
named belong to Mr. Edwards. Two
or three years ago the farm had a herd
of fino graded and Jersoy cattle, half a
dozen horses, a big drove of well fed
hogs and a Hock of sheep ot the best
. .blood. They havo been disposed of,
but no ono appears to know who got
tho proceeds. Tho farm had also
enough first class implements to stock
half a dozen common farms. It is all
cone. A year or so aco tho farm had
forty-threo new plows, which different
manufacturers nad sent thcro for trial.
Many of them wero nerer even tested.
They wero all sold to raiso monoy to
pay tho wages of laborers and other
bills. Tho machinery was disposed of
in tho samo way,
To tho right, of tho pig pens aro tho
big Fairbank scales, o.i which every-
lliing raised on tlio place is supposed
to bo weighed at ono timo or another.
Facing tho soalcs nnd on tho upper
sido of a roadway is a carpenter shop
and tool house Tho building is in
bad repair and its contents aro a lot of
oiias and ends ot liltlo or no value,
which havo been Hung in out of tho
way. Midway between tho carpenter
slioii and tho farm houso and on a lino
with both is a pretty little ono story
uuuiiu uuuiiiug, surrouuueu oy an iron
. veranuah. This was intended for and
was onco used as tho office of tho man
ager of tho farm. It is now a store
house for potatoes. A short distance
behind tho olhce is tho hot house, in
which tho oarly managers of tho farm
raised fivo and eight pound bunches of
grapes. jno grapes wero raised tins
year and many of tho vines aro dead.
In explanation of this Mr. Flohr said :
"Tho big grapes all burstcd open nnd
dried up like raisins when wo turned
tho heat on to ripen 'em.1' Near tho
farm buildings aro ten acres of peaches
and grape vines nnd fivo acres of ap
ples. Grapes and pears were not
bo plentiful. Nono of tho trees havo
been properly cared for nnd tho graiio
vines havo been allowed to run wild.
Car loads of liartlettu nnd other fino
peaiB ripened, fell to tho ground .and
wero nlowed to rot without being
marketed, l no grouud under tuc trees
being literally covored with decay
cd fiuit. A few wagon loads of pears
wero Bold in tho neighborhood, but no
effort wus made to hud a better market
for them, Fivo wagou loads
gathered and mixed up with two loads
of apples, wero ground up into fivo
barrels or cider. Tho cranes wero sold
in tho neighborhood at two and three
cents per pound. Twenty tons ot hay
wero gathered during tho season nnd
good corn was raised on twenty-fivo
acres of giound. Tho oxpcilments
this year consisted of the sowing of
wheat on a quarter ol nn acre of ground'
divided into ten beds, different wheat
and different fertilizers being used on
In half dozen similar beds coin
was planted with different phosphates.
Tho grain was cut, threshed, weighed
nnd dumped into the granary. Mr.
Flohr says ho don't think these "'spoil
mcnts" will amount to much, as ho and
Mr. Edwards had lorgotlen tho kind
ol lertulzcrs used on each lied. "Uoi
'em mixed up," as ho expresses it.
The iVcw J'Jnrjlaml Farmer strong
ly urges tho manuring of orchards bu
fore winter sets in. The following ar
ticlo from that paper is worthy of
special attention :
"This has been a bairen year lor tho
most of the orchards in tho country,
but tho trees have mado fruit buds for
next year's bearing, which will bring
nbundant crops next year should tho
season prove favorable. Now an
over-abundaut crop is often of little
moro value than a moderate crop in a
year of less general abundance. Farm
crs who treated their orchards pro
perly havo apples to uso and to sell this
year when they bring good prices, but
they began tho treatment at least a
year in advance. A great many applu
trees that stand in grass aro looking
anything but flourishing with close,
minted top and dead oriuossy branches.
If tho laud under such tress could bo
ploughed and tho tops judiciously
thinned out, and, pleanty of manure
spread over the ground, tho trees would
take a new start, and possibly bear a
fair crop next year. If nil this should
bo done, most persons would give near
ly all the credit to the ploughing, be
cause it is usually noticeable that trees
which aro ploughed around look much
healthier and produce far better crops
of fruit than trees standing in grass,
It must bo remembered, however, that
ploughed ground usually receives all
tho manure, while tho grass laud gives
up its annual crop without tho appli
cation of any manure whatever. Now,
if wo would'npply mannro as liberally
to the trees that stand in tho grass as
to those under which wo try to grow
cultivated crops, wo should find that wo
could got equally fino fruit and iu great
"The time to prepare for a crop of
apples next year, that will bo worth
picking and carrying to market, is now,
before tlio ground fieezes. Spread a
heavy dressing of good stable manure
under such trees as are worth saving,
and dig up the poor ones and cut them
into firewood for burning these cold
winter evenings, which aro booh com
ing. After spreading, draw a heavy
bush or drag over tho ground to crush
the lumps an J spread tho manure more
over tho cntiro area, and to press it
closo down to the surface where the
rains and melting snows will carry it
down into tho soil where the roots will
find it. Apple roots in grass run quito
near the surface and will be reached by
manuro mucker than it all tho roots aro
destroyed by ploughing to tho depth of
six or eight inches.
"Wo aro not at this timo arguing
against ploughing apple orchards, but
to ask those of our readers who aro not
prepared to plough under their trees,
to givo tho top dressing a trial, even if
it be only upon a lew trees In our
own experience wo havo been surprised
to notice how quickly a treo will re
spond to manure spread upon tho snr-
lace, even when thatsurlaco is in grass.
J. no trimming out ot the over-denso
tops is work that may bo commenced
at any time, and lontinuo through tho
winter, as leisure is found. In thinning
out it will better to tako out many small
limbs by several cuts, than to remove
large ones by cutting onco oniy. Large
wounds do not heal as readilv, and
taking out largo limbs leaves die treo
less well balanced. The aim should be
to diminish tho number of fruit buds by
thinning out tho small twigs and thus
thinning tho fruit after it is formed It
would have been better to havo begun
this work a year earlier, but something
can be done even now to ensuro a crop
that will bo salable next year, whether
tho general crop is large or small.
Eow Diamonds are Out.
"Tliero aro three processes necessary
to bo gone through witlr between tho
rough stono and tho diamond as you
sco it here,'' said a Cleveland jeweler to
a reporter. First a pieco of stono tho
required size must bo cut off. To do
this wo use a circular saw mado ot
sheet iron and without teeth. It work
ed liko a woodworker's saw, and
two men stand at tho treadle. Ono
man holds tho stono to be cut tightly
against tho edgo of tho saw, while the
other, using a small leather dipped in
oil, applies diamond dust to tlio edgo
of tho saw. Tho Baw is mado of very
ductilo metal, and tho particles of dia
mond dust, becoming firmly set in,
soon wear through tho haiuest stone.
Now tho piece of diamond passes to
tho cutting table, upon which is strap
ped a wheel running parallel to tho top
of tho table. Tho Btono is fastened by
cement to tho end of a stick six inches
long. Tho lapidary takes his Btick in
his right hand and holds tho stono
firmly ngainst the wheel until ono face
is ground down. Diamond dust mid
water aro constantly applied to tho
wheel. Tho tablo and upper facets of
tho Btono aro cut this way, and tho
stono is then removed trom and read
justed to tho stick beforo tho lapidary
ems tuo under sides, cadets and remain
ing facets. Tho stone is manipulated
the same in the third or polishing pro
cess as iu tho cutting process. Tho
wheel, however, is composed mainly of
tin, nnd tripoli and rotten stono are
used in the polishing process.'
Fi.oun Soup. Put somo dry flour m
a fryingpan, nnd shako it lightly over a
clear, not too hot, lire, until it becomes
o golden brown. While still hot, pour
over it a sufficient quntity of milk to
lorm tho soup, it will ot course, en
tirely depend on tho number of persons
to partake of it. Add pleanty of whito
sugar nnd powdered cinnamon. Uook
tho mixturo very carefully, turning it
round gently, always in ono direction,
with a silver snoou, liko u custard. At
the moment of serving, this soup must
bo tmcKcncd with tho yolks ol eggs i
fried croutons, fingers of bread toasted
brown, or crushed ordinary captain's
biscuit, aro eaten with it. instead of
browned flour, plain rice flour can bo
used: which need not bo treated.

THE COLUMBIAN AND
Printing a Newspaper Without Type.
A now lyno-scttlngmachlno is invent
ed. If tho claims for it nro trite, tho
day of tho printer is drawing to a close.
It will further help tho cheapening of
mo prico ot newspapers. Tlio maclnno
has tho capacity of setting 10,000 ems
a day. It works with ironc! lad accuracy,
find avoids tho fault of tho present
tjpo setting machines in that it can
"justify" tho lines as a compositor can
now with tho hand method. No typo
is necessary with this maohino beyond
a few alphabets of tho vnriotu kinds
nnd sizes required in tho make up of a
newspaper. Thoro is a key board to
tho machine liko that of a piano.
Thcso keys represent letters nnd punc
tuation marks. Playing on them im
presses theso forms into a paper matilx
similar to that now employed iu mould
ing tho metal forms employed upon tho
Uullock press. Instead of setting up
lypc by tho old method and taking a
matrix from tho locked form as a wholo
tho impression is mado direct from the
machine, o:k letter at a time, so that
when tho typo setting machine is
through tho matrix is instantly ready
for tho moulding of tho cylindrical
forms employed upon tho modem
press. Tlio valuo of this ono feature
in tlio mero saving of time is great, be
cause tho gain of ono minutu in tho
stereotyping of the forms of a great
odico is experimented with iu the olliuo
of tho Philadelphia 2'imes. Tlio in
ventor says the machines can bo itir
