Location for an Apple Orchard. '

gonial Roll and surroundings. Thj sup
' position that any hpavy and black soil
id suitable for npplo growing, simply
becauso it is rich, is erroneous. "My
soil is rich and rather loamy, and oven
though it is low and rather cold, I can
improvo it by uudordralning," said a
farmer1 Who contemplated planting an
orchard. Whllo I would not Ioksoii
tho faitli in liberal uudordralning, I
would nevertheless urgo thoimportanco
of selecting for apple culluro soils nat
urally well drained, in preference to
tlioso artificially drained. It is rare, in
deed, that nn unguent and cold soil is
mgdo entirely Bultablo for applo grow
ing by tilo draining.
I iiavo in miml two orchards upon
soils entirely opposito in their oharao
ters. Ono is npon a rich, warm grav
el, with no hard sub-soil within four or
fivo feet of the aurfaoe, tho other upon
a clay sub-soil. Tho former orchard
has novor boon drained j it boars well
of choicu fruit, is in good health, de
mands littlo care, and lias been for
some timo the premium orchard in tho
Stnto in which it is situated. Tho lat
ter has had similar treatment ns to pru
ning and general cultivation, only more
illlligontly and vigorously applied, and
tho varieties aro nearly tho same.
To this orchard has been givch a
most thorough system of underdraw
Neither timo or expenso Iiavo been
spared to relievo tho soil of all unnec
essary water in tho least posaiblo 'time;
still this orchard is a failure,, its fruit is
not abundant dor of good quality, and
tho trces aro not vigorous. I havo
heard its manager remark, "it is impos
sible to mako good applo land out of a
low and cold soil." A positive poor
soil, if warm and naturally well drain
ed, ia certainlo preferablo to one of nn
opposito character. A poor soil can
be improved by manuring.
Of course, ap orohord on a oald soil
is preferable Io no orchard at all, but if
planted' with an idea to profit, it will
likely bo a failure. Few farms lack
entirely any high grounds. A few
trees planted about on tho knolls will
return more satisfaction than thrco
tifnes tho number on an uncongenial
soil; Good and naturally woll-draiucd
wheat- land is usually good applo land.
A rich ground is especially desirable.
It must supposed that apples are
to bo expected to dwell on an unfertilo
soil. An abundanco of vegetablo mat
ter in a warm soil is always uccessary
to applo culture. Lack of hardiness,
. lata bearing, Bhy bearing, and poorly
. -flavbred (fruit, aro commonly thoio
suits of planting on' a low and wet
soil. '
Asido from perfect drainage and
warm soil, high1 lands present other ad
vantages to 'tho npplo grower. Cold
air is heavier than warm air, nud it
settles into valloys and low Jplaces. A
difference) of several degrees is often
apparent between tho bottom of an or
dinary ravino and tho land adjacent.
Wo havo all had oxperienco to testify
to this atmospheric drainage while
traveling at night over hills.
Trees on eminences escape latef rosts,
, and, if given some protection from
hard winds, endure tho winter better
than similar varieties at low levels. Tho
importance of atrnospherio drainage to
the orchardist struck mo forcibly when
oncd visitin; in tho mountains of Ver
mont. A late frost had destroyed nil
tho" appics in tho valleys had been so
severe, in fact, as to kill all tho leaves
on tho butternuts and walnuts. On

over, and especially whero tho confir
mation of tho hills allowed tho air to
roll freely down their sides, tho apples
were abundant and uninjured; Farm

Profits of Panning.
IVoplo who think farming is a poor
business for a young man to engage in
dojjbbt'nlwaya figure correotly. It is
t?niej as compared with the successful
merchant or speculator, the profits look
small. ' Ambitious yonng men, in hot
hasto to be rich, consider tho slow pro

of tho s6il far too dilatory. Allowing
tho farmer to take out of his produce
ii-eaHOuablo wages; as a compensation
for'his labor, and his' per cent, of profit
op his laud, implements, etc., will not,
probably, exceed three percent, per
annum. "That is a very poor busi

er, ,lI expect Jo mako fifteen or twen

Every man cannot bo a banker, or a
merchant, simply -becauso if nobody

and therefore ho who commences, fre

A Literary Wearing-House.
It is tint generally known that tho
Smithsonian Institution is tho greatest
literary and scientific clearing-house in
tho world, yet such is tho fact. Its
scopo in this field is universal. Any
person can send there any number of
copies of a publication, addressed M
desired, and tho institution sees that
they are delivered without cost to tho
Sender. An American editor can tints
distribute an edition of a learned tren
tiso through all foreign countries, near
and remote, as well as his own, whllo
foreign writers can, in turn, reaolt ev
ery loarncd society and student in this
country or in othor foreign countries,
Practically the exchanges aro made in
most oases between sooiotics, rattier
tli. in individuals, and some idea can bo
gained of the proportions of tho work
from tho fact that tho institution has
now about 3,200 foreign societies or
ngpnts with which it is in regular cor
respondence. Ten years ago thcro
were only 1,985, while in 1850 tho in
stitution was in communication with
only 173. For tho sako of conventenco
the 3,200 regular correspondents aro
roached through thirty-eight "centres
of distribution," as thoy aro callod,
these being buroaus, societies, or indi
viduals authorized to act as iU agents
in tho various countries of tho world.
Generally tho agent is a government
bureau or a learned society of semi-official
In return for tho largo shipments of
American publications tho exchango
bureau receives copies of nearly all tho
scientific works of tho world ns soon
as printed, and distributes them as do
sired among our own learned bodies
and individuals. This constitutes tho
second of tho functions of tho ex
change. A thiid and final duty of great
magnitude is what is called tho govern
ment exchange. In 1863 Congress di
rooted the Smithsonian to undertako this
office, nnd tho work has grown until
now, by act of Congress, fifty complete
sets of public documents aro furnished
the bureau for distribution among tho
various governments of tho civilized
world. It might bo surmised that tho
cost of making such extensivo ex
changes would be very great, but tho
expenso is surprisingly small. Tho
cost of boxing and wrapping is chiefly

Ericsson, the veteran inventor, was

others that aro received without ques

Planting a Ooooanut-
In a letter from tho West Indies wo
find tho following : To tho gentleman
who lins written mo that ho read ot
cocoanut growing nicely as a houso
plant in Brooklyn, and that he desires
to start one, and wishes to know wheth
er tho nut should be planted with tho
eyo up or down, I mast confess that of
my own observation I do not know. I
always took it for granted that of course
tho eye and stem should be planted up

his trco grow through to China, for tho
benefit of tho Mongolian unbelievers.
But I am surprised to find, in a trust
worthy work on cocoannts, tho follow

nuts aboutour inches under tho soil,
and about twenty feet apart. Caro
should be taken to plant the nut that is

Water' Supply of Tarns.
An "Agricultural Engineer" writes
to tho Country Gcntteman i During
tho past year, I havo taken pains to
noto tho situation of mora tlinu n hun
dred farm wells aud cisterns, nnd moro
than half of them aro in dangerous
proximity to ocsspoois, somo of which
havo been in use for scores of years i
most of them, however, havo been
emptied every spring for tho manure
in them but this, even, lins littlo effect
in preventing tho inevitable pollution
of tho water supply. A largo propor
tion of tho farms havo wells quite close
tq the ruanuro ynrds nud stables. In
ono of theso homesteads, of a family of
soven, but ono survived to 30 yenrs of
nge, nnd tho survivor camo very near
dying of an nbcess of tho liver, no
doubt suporinduccd by tho unwhole
some wntor supply. It is to bo hoped
that these facts will give rise to inves
tigation in such cases as may present
suspicious circumstances, and in all
oases a comparison with tho following
points and tho condition of tho wntor
supply may bo useful.
1. Thcro is no well safo that is not
porfcctly well protected from surfaco
wntor and tho cntranco of wormi, frog,
toads nnd small insects and vermin.
Tho well should bo curbod up nbovo
tho Biirlace with bricks or stone, laid
in cement, or well plastered outside
witli liino mortar, so that the ground
slopes in all directions, nud prevents
any pools of surfaco water from re
maining within 20 feet of tho well.
2. It is a common but mistaken be
lief that a well should bo open to tho
air for ventilation. The reason given
is that carbonio acid or foul air will
gather in tho well. No doubt at limes
this gas gathers in wells, but in every
caso it is in wells that aro open to tho
nir, and are fouled with decomposing
orgauio matter. Tho purest water
comes from drive wells nnd nilesian
wells, to which tho outer air cannot
gain access. Carbonio acid gas, too, is
only dangerous when breathed. Its
prcsonco in water greatly improves it,
and a person who drinks ono glass of
soda water, or a seidlit. powder, takes
moro carbonic acid gas than could
bo taken in ten barrels of any well
3. A well should therefore bo tight
ly closed in at tho top, and closely
curbed to tho bottom, and every pos
sible entranco should bo closed against
worms and all other living creatures.
4. A well cannot bo safe from un
derground drainage, unless it is dug
down below a bed of clay which slopes
or inclines from tho well toward any
barnyard, cesspool or other source of
pollution, irrespective of distanco ; for
whon a draiuago flow occurs through
tho soil, it is only a question of timo
when it will reach the well, although it
may bo 100, 200 or moro feet from the
source of the impurities, if the slopo of
tho subsoil, grav5l, liardpan or clay, is
from tho 6ourco of tho drainage to the
well. In porous, sandy soil or gravel,
tho deeper tho well, tho sooner it will
become fouled by any drainage.
5. A cesspool or barnyard should
always bo located on lower ground than
tho house or the well, or any spring
from which tho water is drawn. If this
is not possible, the cesspool should bo
mado with an impervious bottom of ce
ment, saturated with gas tar or melted
asphalt, nnd a drain made of glazed
pipes, cemented at the joints, to carry
tho liquid from it to a distant place
where it may be used in making com
post. C. A well should bo carried down
to a permanent boiling spring which
enters the bottom, and then linod witli
cement tiles, the joints of which should
lio carefully closed ; or the lining
should bemade of brick, laid in cement,
or if of wood, or hemlock plank, laid
with closo joints. Nn other wood but
hemlock should bo used for a well curb.
The common system of boring wells by
machinery is tho best and safest, and
when a good supply of water is procur
ed, tho oore should bo filled with ce
ment pipe. Where water is near tho
surface, a drivo well is tho best and saf
est. In conclusion I would remark that
the best timo to dig a well is in tho
dryest part of tho season ; and when an
existing well is dry in a dry time, it
would pay to tako that opportunity to
deepen tho well down to permanent
water, oven if pressing work is put
aside until this has been done. And
lastly, considering the serious conse
quences of any lapse in securing purity
in tho water supply, it would bo better
to spend 200 or $300 over it, and do
without a parlor organ or piano, or a
costly famishing for a parlor or a fancy
road wagon, it both cannot bo nirord
cd -, but a great deal of tho cost may
be saved by going tho right way to
work about it.
