r'revention of the Borer.
This has been a very important point in
peach growing, in almost all sections of coun
try, for many years past. We have an ac
count of ft as early as before the commence
ment of the present century, and yet it is
making its ravages without a preventive, even
in the orchards of some of the better inform
ed and more enterprising fruit-growers, which
is very embarrassing to the cultivation of this
delicious fruit. The peach-worm or borer,
(.Xfieria exitiosa) which naturalists have so
repeatedly described, is of two sexes, re
markably different. " This insect in its per
fect state, is a slender, dark blue, four winged
moth, somewhat like a wasp. It commences
depositing its eggs in the soft and tender
bark at the base of the trunk, generally from
the middle of June to the first of October.—
The egg hatches and becomes a small white
borer or grub, which soon grows to the length
of three-fourths of an inch, penetrates and
devours the bark and sapwood, and after
passing the winter in the tree it spins itself
in a cocoon, under or upon the bark of the
tree, and emerges again into a perfect winged
insect by the following June, ready to deposit
its eggs for another generation."
For protection against this insect no remedy
has yet been found infallible, though it can
be protected to a limited extent in different
ways, of which I will describe the one I have
found the most beneficial. After plowing
and preparing the soil in the early part or
middle of May, clear away the earth from
the base of the trunk, examine the bark and
remove all insects; prepare a whitewash of
lime and water, adding plenty of lime, so as
to make it almost a paste; apply it with a
brush, so as to give the exposed base of the
trunk a good coating. When this becomes
perfectly dry, take a small quantity of clay
soil, such as will pack well, and place it
around the base of the trunk, to the height
of three or four inches above the level of the
soil first removed. This prevents the borer
from depositing its eggs in the crown of the
roots, and even lower, which is difficult to
remove as well as more injurious to the tree.
This packing of clay should be removed in
the early part of November, and if any
worms are in, they will be easily found by
an exudation of glue ; remove them by
means of a sharp knife, which is decidedly
the best instrument. After this has 'been
done, place good mellow soil around the base
of the trunk, so as to leave no place for
water to stand and freeze during winter.
This being annually repeated, is one of the
best preventives from the bores.—Cor. Gen
Planting Dwarf Pear Trees.
When it was first recommended to plant
them so deep that the point of junction of the
graft, or bud and stock, should be beneath
the surface of the ground, I conceived the
plan to be a good one, and did not hesitate to
put it in practice myself, or to advise my
friends and customers to do so ; after a trial
of some five years I regret to be compelled
to say my experience falls far behind my an
ticipations of the benefit I expected to wit
Without any equivocation or mental re
servation, I now denounce and henceforth
abandon the practice ; and it is for the bene
fit of those whom I may by my advice have
led astray, as well as others who may not
have had any experience in the line of plant
ing, that I now give and record the result of
One-half or more of all the trees I have
thus 'planted, in from one to three years,

was inserted; this is particularly the case
with all those that are slow growers on the
Nor is this all ; I have killed a few which
had been planted in the ordinary manner by
heaping the earth up around the trunk, and
all by rotting as above mentioned.
There are a few varieties which have suc
ceeded and grow very well, but they are the
hardy vigorous varieties, such as Louise Bon
ne de Jersey, Rostiezer, Dutchess D'Angou-

Those that have thus far lived do not ap
pear to grow any more vigorously than do
those which were planted at the depth they
grew in the nursery, and if there is any dif
ference it is in favor of the latter.
Al! that I can say in favor of the practice,
is, that it hides the ugly appearance in those
cases when the tree outgrows the stock; a
very small matter, when brought alongside
of the loss of a large portion of the trees
planted, as my experience testifies.
I hope others may have had better success
than your humble servant; were it necessary
I could give you the similar experience of
some others, but prefer to hear from those

Mxr.g. WASTING FROM THE TEATS.—Get from
the druggist a small quantity of collodion, or
"liquid cuticle," and when the cow has been
milked, apply it to the ends of the teats.—
It instantly will form a thin tough skin,
which will prevent the emission of milk.—
At milking time the false skin can be bro_
ken through, and the cow milked, and the
collodion again applied. In a week or ten
days there will be no necessity for further
application, as the defect will be cured.—
So imps an exchange.
Experiment in Draining
Every judicious experiment in draining,
(we agree with the Country Gentleman,)
unlike many other experiments, must always
result in success. It may therefore seem
unnecessary to record the results ; but so
decisive and striking do they generally prove,
and at the same time they aro so little.
appreciated by those who
_have never prac
ticed thorough draining, that we are always
glad to record these results for the encour
agement of beginners.
The editor of the New England Farmer
gives in a late number the details of a recent
experiment. Stone drains two feet deep
were first employed some years ago, and
their immediate effect was to increase the
product of the low, wet land through which
they were cut, from one ton of poor coarse
hay per acre to " three tons of good English
hay per acre." But the draining was not
deep enough; the ditches gradually became
choked, and rushes and coarse grass resumed
The land was then thoroughly drained by
cutting four feet deep, and laying in pipe
tile. Previous to this operation, attempts
were made to till it ; it could not be plowed,
however, till about the close of the spring
months, and even then was so wet that the
furrows were left in compact masses, which
were afterwards broken to pieces with great
labor by the hoe. The last spring (the
draining having been completed,) it could
have been easily plowed "at any time after
the 10th of April ; and, during the wet
month of May which followed, and at any
time since, notwithstanding the constant
succession of rains, the soil has been so light
and porous as to fall to pieces whenever it
has been worked. It is now covered with
the heaviest crops that have ever stood
I propose giving my mode of raising tur
keys. It is my opinion that farmers can
raise a pound of fowl easier and cheaper
than a pound of pork. Heretofore I have
been unfortunate in raising turkeys, but this
season I adopted a different mode—a plan of
my own invention—by which I have been
very successful. Others may have adopted
the same course, but not to my knowledge.
Young turkeys are apt to die before they
attain the age of three weeks. I came to the
conclusion that the fatality among them, was
caused by vermin, heavy feed and cold, damp
weather. My method this season, has been
this :—take the eggs of the first laying, and
set under hens ; the second laying let the
turkeys hatch. Two or three days before
hatching, sprinkle the nest and . the fowls
themselves with sulphur. When the young
were hatched, I took a little sulphur, gun
powder and lard, mixed, and greased their
heads and necks to keep off the vermin,
while the young brooded. If it does not re
main on, in eight or ten days put on another
MODE or FEEDING.-I took equal quantities
of wheat bran and Indian meal, and wet
with sour milk, or lappered milk, with a good
lot of fine-cut shives, once in two or three
days, in with it, and feed them till a month
or six weeks old ; then lessen the bran. Feed
them early in the morning to keep them from
rambling in the dew.
Such has been my method of feeding and
management, and I have lost only two out of
forty hatched. Ducks managed in the same
way—lost three by accidental causes, out of
thilt•i-five hatched One, only, died while
young. Chickens in like manner, with
greased heads and sulphured nests—lost three
in about sixty. This is my mode and my
success.—Cor. Prairie Farmer.
This is always an important matter to
those contemplating having a neat and tasty
garden. The materials for the purpose must
vary with the locality, as the cost of carriage
is too much to render it possible, except
perhaps in occasional instances, of supply
ing places poorly supplied with good gravel,
with that from a distance and better. Still
it often happens that the best is not done
with that near at hand. For example, it is
very rare to find good walks made from
beach gravel, yet we doubt whether that and
clay does not make the very best garden
walks of anything, if rightly done. Those
who wish to see a good walk, let them try
the following method of preparation. First,
take out the soil of the walks nine or twelve
inches deep, according to the traffic it is
likely to have, and the means of the propri
etor in doing a first-rate job. Fill in the
bottom with brick bats, coarse rubbish,
stones, or anything nearest at band similar
—if partially composed of coal ashes, so
much the better ; this should rise to within
three or four inches of the top; on this
spread two or three inches of clay ; level
down smooth, and on this spade one inch
(not more) of screened beach gravel. The
screening is very important, as it is desirable
to have all the fine particles of sand and
gravel away. More than this thickness does
not bind well enough, and the walking is
heavy. The beauty of this made walk is it
does not break up after frost, and very rare
ly washes with rain.— Cor. Country Gent.
RIIST.-A Canadian paper says that a gen
tleman recently turned five horses into a
field of rusted oats, and they were all found
dead the next morning. Rust is supposed
to be caused by a very minute insect, which
lives on the juice of the straw, and the rust
is its poisonous secretions

H E LIVER INVIGORATOR !-
PREPARED BY DR. SANFORD.—Compounded en
tirely from GUMS is one of the best purgative and Liver
medicines now before the public, that acts as a Cathartic,
easier, milder, and more effectual than any other medicine
known. It is not only a Cathartic but a Liver remedy,
acting first on the Liver to eject its morbid matter, then
on the bowels and stomach to carry off that matter; thus
accomplishing two purposes effectually, without any of the
painful feeling experienced in the operations of most
Ozthartics. It strengthens the system at the same time
that it purges it; and when taken daily in moderate doses
will strengthen and build it up with unusual rapidity.

human body; and when it performs its functions well,

woodlands, have been leased by the former proprietor of
the Learner House. The extensive Hotel buildings, Bath
houses., &c,, erected at great expense by Gen. A. P. WlLsolv,
have been completed—and the Groves have been beauti
fully laid out and adorned. The Hotel Parlors and Cham
bers are airy and comfortably furnished; and the prospect,
from the Verandahs, for Beauty, cannot be excelled.
For half a century, these Springs have been celebrated
for their Medicinal qualities, and the Great Virtue of the
waters in Rheumatic or Chronic affections. The tempera
ture of the water being 69% 2 ' degrees renders the Bathing
delightful and invigorating. In the surrounding woods
and mountains Game abounds, and the finest fish are
caught in Stone creek.
Persons in pursuit of health or pleasure will find this a
most delightful and healthful retreat; and its nearness to
the Pennsylvania Railroad, and the cheapness of the rates
charged guests, give it a decided advantage over any other
watering place in the State. The Proprietor has had years
