A coKKKrtI'O.NIiENT id" the I'liiludel
pliia Kcrord calls upon the euperin
lendciits id' the public squares of
that city to destroy the caterpillars'
nests which ma}* I h? found now upon
the trunks of the trees, anil thus pre
vent the ravages of the worms next
summer. Farmers should apply the
hint to their orchards.
A "coed fhamk'' is simply a "hot
bed, 1 minus the heat. That is instead
of having a manure pile under it to
generate heat, it is placed u|on the
ordinary soil of the garden. Of
course, a layer of two or three inches
of good, rich garden compost spread
over the soil, or mixed intimately
with it, will add largely to its effi
ciency. In this may Is.* planted, in
.September, a few rows of "onion
sets," one or two of the winter va-
riclics of lettuce, a row or two of
corn salad, and even a few radish
seeds. All these will start nicely ill
the growing weather of the fall, and
if, upon the approach of cold wreather
a few wheelbarrow loads of manure
arc hanked up around the outside,
anil the sash put on—which should
be covered with a few loose hoards
during the very severe weather and
snow storms—the owner will Ik> re
watded with a taste of "green stuff"
at a time when it will Is? most highly
I'iFFoue many weeks the cold fall
storms will be upon us, and in alj
probability lieforc many of us are
fully ready for it, winter, with its de
mand for feeding and housing our
stock, will be here. It is none too
eatly to think of our preparations
for meeting these demands. In very
tnanv cases, farmers will fa- tetter
prepared with feed than with shelter,
i'he importance of warm stabling is
not appreciated as it should I*. t>c
cause of comparative ignorance con
cerning it. Prof. Sanborn, of the
New Hampshire Agricultural College,
conducted some feeding experiments
last winter in which the effect* of
proper shelter were shown to be of
great economical value to the stock
owner. He provided specially warm
stabling for fifteen cows, at a cost of
S3O, and then changed tliern from tiiis
to a cold part of the barn, noting the
amounts of food eaten, and the
changes in the milk flow. Without
stopping to give his figures in detail,
it is enough for our present purpose
to say that lie found the total of feed
saved, and milk gained by the use of
the warm stabling amounted to eleven
cent, per cow |ierday. Mr. Sanltorn
says: "These facts were carefully
taken over a period of nearly three
months, and in their results show
that I nearly got the cost of im
proving the stable for the first w inter,
or about one hundred per cent, in
terest for four months."
FROM a private letter we lewn that

This is but a fair sample of what
may Is? done by the younger and
weaker members of the farmer's farn
ily. There is neither mystery nor
hard work about joultry raising. It
docs require care and attention, but
not more than any ordinarily intelli
gent boy or girl of fourteen can give.
And for that matter we know of
nothing in which any boy or girl,
man or woman, can succeed without
care and attention. I'crhaps this
young lady had parents who were
wise enough to encourage her in her
laudable ambition, and possibly many
more farmers' boys snd girls would
follow her good example, if they

Renovating Old Orchards.
V*i< In frit*
There are many apple orchards
containing large old trees that have
been neglected which, with their dead
branches and dilapidated ap|>earance,
look as though they were worth more
lor firewood than for anything else.
If the bodies of such trees are sound
and a fair proportion of the limbs
have life enough to make a little new
wood each year, they may he made
profitable by vigorous and judicious
The worst trees, cr those past rem
edy, should IK- cut out, and one need

the chips, bark and twigs; let tlieiu
lie to rot and be trodden in, if not
too much in the way, for when they
are decomposed they are the liest ma
nure for the trees, as the decomposed
matter of any plant is the liest ma
nure to apply to it again. The trees
left standing should be severely prur -
ed ; all dead limbs cut out and boiled
linseed oil applied to their slumps
with a paint brush; the other limbs
should lie cut back aufliciently to
make them throw out new wood.
The bodies should lie scraped slid
wssbed with a mixture of one pound
of soils dissolved in each galbm of
water sufficient to make a strong

cation of wood ashes or manure will
soon make a remarkable change in

many farmers allow to accumulate
around the wood pile is excellent to
apply as a top dressing on an orch
I had an apple orchard come into
my |M>ssession forty years ago, with
very large trees, ami which were said
to tie seventeen years old. Their
dead limbs and mossy sides pntent
ed a dreary look for an orchard. The
apples were natural fruit. I trimmed
it heavily, plowed and planted it with
fodder corn for two or three years in
succession, manuring it moderately,
and as tlie trees threw out vigorous
suckers, I grafted them ; then I grad
ually cut away the old wood as the
scions grew, and so gradually formed
new tops of good fruit. 1 lost a
very few trees during the process,
hut I gathered much good fruit from
the orchard for twenty years, and am
told that aome of the trees are livius
A neighbor of mine had an apple
orchard in a similar condition, and
he proceeded to renovate it in the
same way. He gave it a liberal ma
nuring with wood ashes, but instead
of plowing it he fenced it and used it
for a sheep pasture. He grafted the
suckers and thrifty limbs as fast as
- • ~.^v
their appearance would warrant, and
UH it is well known tliat sheep will
improve the land they run on, the
orchard grew thrifty and I saw many
pood crop* grown from it. <! rafting
suckers in not the nurseryman's a|-
proved sty |c of managing an orchard,
hut HI a cane like this it is better
than cutting it down. Kvcn if the
treen are old, they will furnish good
fruit sooner tlian newly-set trees will
do; hut in the meantime it is ad
visable to net out young trees to take
the place of the old orchard when it

Let him drive fast or slow, it is the
farmer who makes the pace for the
country. The good crops of 1878
and ls"'.i were the inducing cause of
the good times in 1880 and 188 J.
The shoit crop of 1881, following
upon the great drought that burnt
up the life of the fields in the last
half of the year, operated to slow up
ami slacken the development of busi
ness in every branch of enterprise.
There was no department of trading
or manufacturing industry that did
not feel the pressure of the brakes.
If the yield ot cotton and oi the
eailicr grain crops had iieen as de
ficient last year as the yield of corn
there would probably have be<n as
sudden, general ami disastrous a col
lapse in business operations as there
was in 187 U. Hut the cotton and the
surplus of more plenteous years pull
ed us through. We are now, in all
human probability, upon the verge of
another season of plenty. There will
be scores of |iolitical philosophers
running around the country ascribing
the bounty of Providence to the pro
vision of public functionaries or to
the operations of the tariff. Hut the
lesson of 1881 should not be forgot
ten. It is no longer to be reckoned
among the imjiossibilities that some
wide reaching calamity may not blight
the harvests from the Atlantic to the
Pacific coast. When the farmer suf
fers, the foundations of the structure
of society are disturbed. "You take
my life," cried Shy lock, "when you
do take the means whereby I live."'
Men must eat, and it is high time
that the great industry of the coun
try that upbears upon its sturdy
shoulders all the others should no
longer lie made a packing-horse to
carry unnecessary burdens. The sole
bread producer should not be the
chief of taxpayers. The farmer asks
for no protection, He fearlessly en
ter* into competition with the rest of
the world, and takes his chances in
the open market. Hut it is about
time that be should have recognition
for what he Is worth in the federal
economy, lie will soon demand the
freedom and fair play which he readi
ly accords to men of all other occu
pations at home or abroad. He has
the [lower to enforce his demand.
Hut those who believe that the ox
should lie muzzled that treadelh out
the corn ought not to stsnd upon the
order of their movement in advocat
ing such changes in the revenue laws
as are necessary to put the farmers
of the country upon an even footing
with their fellow-citizens engaged in
other occupations.
An Experiment with Fonco Posts.
Sixteen year* ago I experimented
with fences, and find seasoned oak
posts oiled and then tarred with boil
-1 ing coal tsr makes thorn last the
: longest. 1 took grecu posts that
were sawed five inches square at one
end and two by fire inches at the
other, and seven ft long. I tarred
half as many as would build my
fence, nnd the other half 1 put in
ground green without tar. In five
years after the tarred jtosts were
nothing hut shell under the ground,
all the inside lieing decayed. Some
of the other posts were about half
Two years after I built another
fence with seasoned oak |>osts, same
size as the first, giving them all a
good coat of oil, and in a few days
nfb-r tarred them as I did before with
coal tsr, heated in a can made for
t hat purpose, four feet deep and large
enough to hold four posts set on end ;
left ihcrn in the boiling tar al>out ten
minute*, then look them and sanded
them. And now, after fourteen years,
not one in ten needs replacing. 1
••hall never build a fence requiring
|>ost* without first thoroughly sea
soning, then oiling and then tiarring
them. If they are tarred when green
the tar does not penetrate the wood,
arid in a short time will all scale oil.
When the wood is seasoned the oil
[renclrales the wood, and the coaling
of coal tar keeps out the moistnre,
thereby preserving the wood from
