WHAT 1. SNOW OF FARMING.
BY HORACE OREELY
ABOUT TREE PLANTING
I have had so little experience in
Tree-Planting that I should have pre
fared to say no more about it; but let
ters that have reached me imply_ that
the ignorance of others is oven denser
than mine. For the sake of those only
who aro not unwilling to learto yen-
turn a few timid suggestions with re•
gard to Tree Planting.
I. Ton or twelve years ago, I bought
a pound or more of Locust seed rather
late in the Spring, scalded it by plung
ing at• night-fall the little cotton bag
which held it into a pot of boiling
water, and letting the seed steep and
steam in the bag till next morning,
when the seed was planted in rows in
a newly broken bit of poor old pasture
land. This was a mistake: I should
have given that seed the richest avail
able spot in my garden, to say noth
ing of planting it as early as April 20th.
My locusts came up slo'wly and grow
feebly that year, not to speak of the
many seeds that did not sprout at all.
Still, many came up and survived, and
my place is this day the richer for them.
It might have been still richer had 1
seasonably known more:
Wbatsl would now advise as to
Locust and most other trees is .that
the bet seed be procured in the Fall,
or so'stion as it drops from the trees;
that`j tirt. of it be sown in drills, two
feet,apart, with two inches bet Ween
seedi in the drills, and that the richest
of dry, warm garden' soil be - devoted
to thi4urpose. Fill a large box with
rich:ilOarniatir - four mites of seed in
to this;titidsot the boxi'n a cool - cellar
where frost does -not enter, and here
kit it remain ti1141114.,..then take. out
ihiseed and earthtogether, and sow
in drills as above. If some one who
cuts Locusts during the Winter or
Spring will allow• you to trace the
smaller surface roots from the new
Made stumps and cut or dig them up,
cut fifty or a hundred pieces of root the
size of your finger each two feet long,
and plant these, about May 1, in the
places where you want Locusts to
come forward most rapidly. Some of
them may not grow, but .I. think many
will; and from all these sources, I judge
that you will obtain a good supply of
young trees. Let those you start from
the seeds got two years' growth be
fore you take them up and set them
where you want trees, whether in your
present woods, in rugged, reeky pas
tures, on the sides of steep ravines, or
around your buildings. You cannot
fail to obtain some trees if you follow
111. Begin early this fall to gather
Chestnuts, Hickory Nuts, Walnuts,
White Oak Acorns, &e., to plant. Se
lect the largest and finest nuts, giving
the preference to those which ripen
and fall earliest. Keep them in cool,
damp earth in some barn or cellar
where rats and mice cannot reach
them, and persist in collecting till De
cember. Then plant a part in your
garden or in any rich ground whore
they are not likely to be disturbed ;
letting the residue remain in the boxes
of moist earth whore you first placed
them till early Spring, then plant
these, like the former, in rows two feet
apart, with six inches between seed
and seed in each row, and give the
rows careful culture for two years;
after which, set them where you wish
them to grow.
I venture to suggest that he who
has a rugged, stony hill or other lot
which be wishes to surrender to forest
should plow it, if it can be plowed,
next September or October : if too
rocky to be even imperfectly plowed,
dig up the earth with pick and spade,
and sow it thickly with hickory nuts,
walnuts, chestnuts, locust and other
tree . seeds, expecting that some will
be dug up and carried off by squirrels,
&0., and that others will fail to germi
nate. Go over it with hoes the ensu
ing June or July, killing all weeds and
other infestations; and, nearly a year
later, repeat the operation, taking up
young trees from your garden or nur
sery,. and filling them in wherever
Ware is room. Plant thickly in
to force an upward rather than a
scraggy growth; and so that you may
begin to cut out the superfious saplings
for bean-poles, hoop-poles, &c., three or
four years thereafter. Cut late in
Winter or early in Spring, so that the
stumps will each throw up two or
more shoots or sprouts, which usually
grow much faster than the original
Tho process of thinning may thus
bo continued indefinitely, while the
choicer trees are allowed to attain
their stateliest proportions. And thus
a rocky, sterile hill-side or knoll may
be made to yield a crop annually after
the first two or three years from plan
ting, while growing trees of decided
value. I judge that almost any land
within fifty miles of a great city and
not more than two miles from a rail
road depot or from navigable water
may thus be made to earn a good in
terest on $lOO per acre, after meeting
all the cost of breaking up and plant
ing. I confidently assert that many
thousands of sterile, rocky acres,whieh
now yield less than $lO per acre in
pasturage, would net at least double
that sum to the owner if wisely devo
ted to forest trees.
I have a hearty love of forests.—
They proffer gentle companionship to
the thoughtful and rest the overwork
ed, fevered brain. Our streams will
be fuller and less capricious, our gales
less destructive, our climate !esti ca
pricious, when we shall have reclothed
our rugged slopes and rocky crests
with trees. Timber grows yearly
scarcer and dearer, when it ought to
becoming more plentiful and accessi
ble, and would bo if we devoted to
trees'all the land which we cultivate
at a loss or fail to cultivate at all. Let
our boys be incited to gather coeds
and plant nurseries ; let young trees
bo bought by the thousand where
they now are by the dozen, and let us
all co-operate in covering our unsight
ly rocks and making glad our waste
places by a superabundance of choice,
thrifty, healthy trees.
HOW TO CURE CONSUMPTION.
THE PHILOSOPHY OF DR. SCHENCK'S GREAT
MEDICINES.—WiII people never learn to know that a
diseased liver and stomach necessarily disease the entire
system ? The plainest principles of common sense teach
this and yet there are hundreds •ho ridicule the id , a,
and continuo in the course which almost inevitably
brings them prematurely to the grave. Living no the
majority of the people do, at complete variance with the
laws of nature, it must bo apparent to all that, sooner or
later, nature will revenge herself. Hence we find tint
persons who indulge to excess In the use of very rid: or
indigestible food or intoxicating drinks, invariably pay
a heavy penalty in the end. The stomach becomes die
ordered and refuses to act: the liver falls to perform its
functions, dyspepsia and its attendant evils follow, and
still the suffering individuals persist in clinging to the
thoroughly exploded idea of the post. Dr. SCHENK'S
medicines are recommended to all such. They bring sure
and certain relief wherever they are used as directed,
and all that is necessary to establish their reputation
with every ailing man or woman in the landis a fair and
impartial trial of them. Let those who are skeptical on
this point, and who have permitted interested perseno to
prejudice them against theoenow celebrated remedies for
consumption, discard their prejudices, and be governed
by the principles of reason and common Benue. If the
system is disordered depend upon it. In nine cases out of
ten the seat of the disorder will Ito found In the stomach
and liver. To cleanse and Invigorate the stomach and to
stimulate the liver to healthy action, use
SCHENCK'S MANDRAKE PILLS.—The daily !norm
ingdemand for these pills In the best evidence of their
value. 'Thousande upon thousands of boxes are sold daily.
Why ? Simply because they act promptly and efficiently
Invalids who may not find It convenient to call on Dr.
SCHENCK in person are informed that full and corn
plate dirt diens for use accompany each package of the
MANDRAKE PILLS, PULMONIC SYRUP AND SEA-
WEED TONlC.—These medicines will cure consumption
tmleas the lungs are so far gone that the patient Is entire
ly beyond the reach of medical relief.
' It may be naked by those who are not familiar with
the virtuesrof these great remedies,"lftstv do Dr. Schenck's
medicines effect their wonderfuhentes of consumption I"
The answer is a simple ono. They begin their work
of restoration by bringing the stomach, liver and bowels
into an active healthy condition. It is food that cores
this formidable diocese. SCHENCK'S MANDRAKE
PILLS act on ills liver and stomach. promoting healthy
secretion. and removing the bile and slime' which have
resultt d from the inactive or torpid condition of those or
gan'', and f the system generally. This sluggish stole
of the body, and the consequent accumulation of the un
healthy substances named prevent the proper digestion
of food, and.ao a natural corm mance mates disease,
which results In prostration and thirdly In death.
SCHENCK'S PUL3IONIC SYRUP and SEAWEED TON-
IC, when taken regularly, mingle with the food, and the
digestive organs, make good and rich blood. and an a nat.
oral consequence, give flesh and strength to the patient.
Lot the faculty nay what it may, fide Is the only true
core for coniumption. Experience has proved beyond
the shadow et a doubt, and thousands are today olive

remedies, and store restored to permanent health by

Ono of thri first . steps-the physician' should take a ith
it consumptive patient is to inn (garde the system. Nest
bow is title to be done t Certainly not by giving - medi
cines that exhaust and enervate—medicines that impair
instead of Imp.r'e the functions of the digestive organs

or weaken thum. They ciente an' appetite—promote

quence, they invigorate and strengthen the entire eye.

Haas cannot be done, then the case must be regarded as.
a hopeless one.
It the ph) RiCi , •ll limb it impassible to make a patient
feel hungry, lithe. deceased person cannot partake of good
poet ishing fond and properly digest it, it Is impossible
that he eau gain in flesh and strength; and It Is equally
impossible to bring n patient to title amid ition so long ns
the Herr is burdened milli diseased bile, and the stomach
laden with unhealthy slime.
Almost the that remomet made to the pb.lebin by a
consumptive patient Is that he will prescribe medicines
that v! ill allay the cough, night sweats and chills, which
aro the cure attendants on consumption. lint this should
not be door, as the cough is only nit effort of panne to
relieve itself, and the night sweats nod chills are calmed
by the diseased lungs. The remedies ordinarily premed!,
ed do more harm than good. The 3 impair the functions
of the stomach, Impede bealtny digestion, and aggravate
rather than cure the dig...
. . . .
There is, niter all, nothing like facts which to subston
tinte a position, and it Is upon facts that Dr. Schenck's
relies. Nearly all who have telt, n his medicines in nc
:ordsoce with his directions have not only been cured of
consumption, but, from the fact that these medicines act
with wonderful power upon the digestive organs, patients
thus cured speedily gain flesh. Cleansing the system of
all impurities, they lay the foundation for a solid, sub.
stantial structure. Restoring these organs to health,
they create an appetite. The food is properly assimila
ted ;the qmintity of blood is not only increased, but is
made rich and strong and in the face of curls a condition
of the system nil disease must be banished.
