Look out for Mice, etc.
T,a=t winter great mischief was done to fruit
trees hy rui e ami moles. The snow was deep
ami lasting, and millions of the vermin won d
1m ve starved were it not for trees and shrut bery
which appeared above the snow. In the swamps
the young bushes were girdled to an immense
extent- -young maples, willows, and almost eve
ry kind of young wood was balked to sustain
this brood of animals through :i hard winter.
For many years we have not known such ex
tensive attacks on young fruit trees, and it be
comes us to repeat what we have before pub
lished in regard to the attacks of mice. In
common winters if attention is given to bent
down the first snows that tome so as to make
u hard bottom around the trunks, the mice >ir<
not apt to do much mischief. But in such u
winter us the last they would not be driven
away by such a process. They were so corner
cl that they mounted upon the tops of the
the snow-banks to avoid starvation, and lived
upon bark of all kinds that was within their
In such a winter as the last it will be pru
dent to look to fruit trees repeatedly and watch
the vermin. Trees standing near stone walls
are most exposed, and much attention must be
paid to them in most cases when* mice are p r
niitted to range the fields and barns without
a hunter. Cats are abwit as useful on souie
farms as some other sto. k. ami when a suita
ble number of cats ntn kept there will be but
little danger of mischief from mice.
But in all cases it is prudent to rake away
ail kinds of litter from the surface around lite
trees, or to bury it up with loam, gravel, or
other enrttily matter. We advise to throw up
a little bank around each young tree —for this
will not only keep the mice away but will keep
the trunk steady and erect till the proper time
comes to level the mound and leaves the so.l
more light than if nothing had been done.
The expense of throwing up a mound about
twelve inches high about the trunk of each
tree just before winter is very trifling. By
this all the litter suitable for mice nests is
buried, and the tree is better supported than
it could be bv anv stake that could be set.
But it is now too Lite to dig about trees,
nnd the course to !>.• pursued is to watch and
beat down the snotv till mid-winter,when there
will be but little datnger.
On oar own farm the cats will kill tnort m.ee
than chickens, and we find .t profitable to keep
them, lest we should lie overrun with unprofita
ble stock. In our young orchard of two hun
dred and thirty trees, not a piece of hark was
gnawed last year, though twenty of the tres
stood quite near an old stone wad. Tue orch
ard was tilled and 110 litter wa> left 011 the sur
face for mice to build their nests 11.
We see different modes recom ml d to pro
tect young tree* i.i w uter—-such as *tu ar iu
the trees with washes of an off usive iiavor—
or coitinsr them with tin, or birch bark. But
there will be no need of such trouble or cost,
for a bink of earth w.ll prove qu.te us useful
as a tin or lead sheathing—m l the cost not a
half a cent for a tree.
PRESERVATION OF FORESTS. —Whore w]|
roininj? general ions g< t their supplies of timber?
How they will latuent the bleak ami naked lull-,
and cry out against us for despoiling tliem of
their chief beauty, and leaving behind us few
or no traces of our forest scenery, except in the
painted landscapes in our parlors ? If onr
forests are so valuable now for timber and fuel,
will they not be still more so to the next gen
eration ? Then why strip them oft -o remorse
lessly? Rather let thern be husbanded. Let
them be thinned out, not nttuly demolish* d.
A careful calculation show that sixty thousand
acres of pine wood are cut every year in
New York, and that at this rate, in the year
1875, these trees will have disappeared from
this part of the country : it is said also, that
" the produce of tilled lands carried to the
title water by the Erie Canal, in one year
amounted to $8,170,000 worth of property ;
that of farm stock for the same year is given
at $3,230,000 : that of the forest, in lumber,
staves, Ac, at $4,770,000. Tims the forest
yield more than the stock, and more than hall
as much as the farm lands." Shall we tli. n ut
terly and forever exhaust this source of com
fort ami wealth ? Let as beware, lest we k.ii
the goose which lays such golden eggs ?
Forest trees should be preserved, also, lor
their beneficial influence upon the climate. It
is universally conceded that the winters of the
northern states are colder than they were thir
ty and forty years ago ; and that the weather
generally is more windy, fluctuating and d sa
greenble We have greater extremes of heat
and cold, and severer droughts. Peaches once
grew in abundance throughout Central New
York; liow.itps almost impossible to raise then).
The w eat and some are more un
certain. These things are ascribablc, not -o
much to any deterioration of the so I, as to tin
destruction of our forests. Formerly, our
farms had belts of wood land,which broke tin
force of the winter and spring winds ; our hill
tops were covered with battalions of tree;
which defend the slopes and vales. Too snow
was not blown off from the tender grain crop
in w inter, nor were the fields laid bare to the
blighting winds of ear.y sj rug.
One of the greitist drawl a ks to farm lif.
on the western prunes is the absence of forest
trees. \\ ood for lumbi r and fuel is scarce,a d
bouse and lands are exposed to the rake • 1
merciless winds in winter and spring Almost
every m lil brings uceou it of extreme stiff-riii;
at the we.-t, on the open prairies. To inak
those lands a paradise for the fanner, tne\
need uotli ng .so m .c.i as th > kindly shelter <>
lii conclusion, we earn stly plead with tin
farmer for n more considerate use of his wood.
Remove old trees, hut touch the young with i
sparing liund. Cieur up your valleys hut do
not strip hire the hill tops. L ave giuiij s
and single trees here and there in your pas
tures, lioth for the comfort of your flocks and
lords, and for the beauty of the landscape.
Plant lielts along th n north and west lines of
your grainfi. Ids and shelti r your houses. For
t!ie purposes of shelter evergreens are best ;
but mingle with these such rapid-crowing trees
as the larch, scarlet flowered maple, Dutch elm.
basswood and yellow locust. Th- time is coin
ing when they who exert themselves to save the
emnant of our noble wood-lends, and who
plant trees for the benefit of posterity, will be
co isider. d wise men and public benefactors. —

THE ELECTRO CHEMICAL BATH,

TAMES HARRIS. Elkcttiician, of Towanda. respect
fully inform* flic public that he ha* lately procured
from New York the celebrated Electro-Chemical Bath,
which his proven to he one of the most'important and
wonderful discoveries of the age. from its ability to extract
mineral* from the human sy-tcm.
Sonic eight year* ago. a physician of Cincinnati disco
vered the process of extracting mineral* from the body,
by galvanism : more recently, M. Verges, of N'ew York,
aii electro-gilder, having suffered from the introduction of
poisonous mineral* into his *y*tem in the prosecution of
hi* art. conceived the idea of removing them hy the *nme
processes, he succeeded in doing so, anil quickly' recovered.
He then applied the same means to others similarly af
fected. with like result*. His success exceeded hi* most
sanguine expectations, for not only did these Baths remove
mineral poison*, but cured many diseases, some of which
were the result of mineral*, and some were not.
More recent experiment* have fully confirmed the sin
gular power of this Bath to draw from the system all mi
nerals that may be Edged therein, to the great detriment
of health. Very often persons are afflicted hy disease*
which are iieymd the comprehension of the most skilful
physicians, and which are the effect of poisonous mine
ral's accumulating in the system for years, taken in the
shape of ral unci, lead. Ac. Ac.
The following are some of the diseases cured hy there
baths: Rheumatism. Paralysis. P.iNy, Painter's C'bolic,
Chronic Ulcer-. Clmdular Swellings, Scrofula, Cancer,

i* a great improvement on the Magnetic machine* hereto
fore in use. With the aid of tlie Bath and Machine, we
have at command all the available medical efficiency of
Electricity. The medical power of the Machine is verv
great, i i "introducing medicines into the system through
the pore of the skin—applying it directly to the parts af
fected, which give* an increase of medicinal power over
that of taking it info the stomach, rendering it particular
ly efficacious in all local diseases.
I am now prepared to apply these Baths, and also the
Machines, at mv house in tin-south part of the borough
