GRASS IN ORCHARDS.
Whether or not grass should be grown !
in orchards, is a question which has of late
been a good deal agitated. That fruit-trees, j
and especially young ones,grow much fast
er and produce larger fruit when the
ground among them is regularly wrought, j
manured and cropped, seems to be general- \
ly admitted ; buf when ground is kept in j
grass, they are less subject to wind-waving, j
and produce higher colored, as well as bet-!
tor havered, although smaller fruit And i
their young wood, from being less luxuri
ant in growth, ripms or matures itself bet- 1
ter, a circumstance greatly favorable to the
culture of many of the fine but more deli- !
cate growing sorts. When the trees have
attained to such a size as to nearly occupy
the ground, it is generally advisable to
keep the surface permanently in grass, in
which case it is better to consume it on the j
ground, than to carry it off by haying it or j
otherwise. In Holland and other parts of
the Continent, from which our large sup-1
plies of apples are mostly derived, the j
trees are grown with high stems, to allow
of the grass being eaten off by cattle thro'- i
out the season. This is also a pretty fre
(juent practice in England ; but a more j
common and preferable mode is to with- j
draw the cattle and put in sheep, as soon |
as the fruit becomes of sufficient size to
tempt the former to injure the branches by j
reaching for it. Pasturing with sheep 1
throughout the season is,however, although
less practiced, a preferable mode to any of
the others for consuming the herbage, and
is especially applicable to orchards which
combine the ornamental with the useful,
from being planted in the vicinity of resi
dences or otherwise. The following con
cise and very appropriate remarks are giv
en by a Canadian orchardist in the Canada
Farmer, May Ist, 1865
"Allow me to give what I consider the
best way to treat an orchard after it has
been seeded to grass, that is, to pasture
them ujith sheep. They seem just fitted for
the purpose, as they remove very little
from the soil that is not returned ; they eat
what apples drop early because of worms,
together with,and thus destroy, these pests
themselves ; and they ke< p the grass down
short, making it good for the falling and
picking up of the mature fruit. I know by
my own experience, and the testimony of
observing and practical men, that trees
thrive and bear large crops of fruit, almost
free from knots and worms, when sheep are
allowed to run among them until the fruit
begins to ripen ; while other orchards that
have been mowed will only make a small
growth, and produce only second-rate fruit.
" Ist. Grass and ground surface vegeta
tion of all kinds should be kept down as
short as possible.
" 2d. All that grows in an orchard except
the fruit, should be returned to the soil.
" 3d. Trees should be allowed to branch
so low as just to allow the sheep to go un
" The above remarks refer to bearing or
chards ; of course young trees demand and
TO PRESERVE FRUITS FRESH
To begin properly, have a supply of cans
or bottles, capable of being made air-tight.
We prefer glass or common .queensware,
with openings large enough to admit of per
fect cleansing. Tin rusts so easily that
they in the end, prove least valuable. Have
a large boiler in which the cans are to be
set, in cold water, (if of glass or china,)
and brought to a brisk boil before the fruit
is put into them. A preserving kettle, in
which to scald the fruit, and another to
keep syrup hot in are necessary. ¥or bot
tles have corks that tit very tight, even af
ter dipping in boiling water. Have a wide
mouthed funnel to pass the fruit through,
and a perforated ladle to drain it. A ves
sel of melted sealing wax should be con
venient, and some bits of ice are useful.
Now take sound, ripe fruit, freshly gath
ered, prepare as if for the table. Prepare
a kettle of syrup of the fruit if possible.—
When you are sure the fruit and syrup are
boiling hot, begin your operations. Fill
your cans while in the boiling water with
fruit; till up every crevice with boiling syr
up. Close the vessel immediately and seal
securely ; smooth the wax with a knife and
lay on a piece of ice to cool it instantly,
and it you use tin cans, set them at once
into cold water.
To steal up instantly in air-tight cans,sound,
fresh fruits or vegetables white Isoiling hot, is
the whole viystery of potting.
Two parts beeswax and one of rosiu
makes good sealing wax. Plaster of Paris
mixed to a paste, small quantities at a time,
makes a good seal for pickles or preserves.
We have seen our friends, the shakers,
keep peaches in perfection in wide mouth
ed stone jars, over which a small cloth is
dipped in beeswax, was snugly fastened.
Tin cans made when it was customary to
solder up fruit, can be made very conven
ient by putting on them rings two inches
deep, and one inch larger it circumference
than the opening. A cork tits into the ring
as into a bottle, and makes the can quite
If your fruit keeps well, it will shrink
from the mouth of the bottle ; if in cans,
they will show no signs of swelling,or may
concave slightly. A cool, dry place is of
lirst importance in keeping potted fruits,
preserves, Ac., and we reiterate light is the
most active agent of destruction with which
the housewife has to contend in any depart
ment. A HoCSE-KEEI'EK.
The sons of farmers commonly think
their lot a hard one. Unlike most city
youths, they are compelled to perform dai
ly toil. Their life is not one of constant
amusement. They cannot see and hear so
much as their city cousins. They do not
dress in as tine clothes—cannot treat and
be treated at the popular saloons, or visit
the costly gambling resorts which abound
in every city. They feel that their lot is
indeed a hard one, and the highest ambi
tion of many of them is to arrive at that
age when they can go to the city and see
" all the sights'* that are to be seen.
Hut let us talk to our farmers' boys.
You are in the right place. You are learn
ing habits of industry and frugality.
Hy your daily toil you are acquiring a
sound constitution—a most important mat
ter. And this is one of the reasons that
our great men have all conic from farmer's
sons. They have grown up robust, with
constitutions that could endure a great
amount of mental labor, which youths from
the city, with weak and feeble frames,
could not stand.
If you cannot see as much as city youths,
neither are you exposed to the vices and
temptations of city life. You are then on
the right track—go ahead. Resolve to
form no bad habits Indulge in 110 intoxi
cating drinks. If you form a love for them,
it is almost impossible to subdue it. Do
not acquire the habit of chewing or smok
ing tobacco, or taking sntifl. Read good
books ; let no opportunity for improvement
pass away nneglected, and you will grow
useful, inteligent men.— Herat W</rld.
MANAGEMENT OF GRASS LANDS. 1
In a former article it has been stated j
that it is injurious to pasture our grass
lauds too close at any season of the year,
but more injurious in the spring and sum
mer than in the fall and winter. In the
spring the grasses are putting out new
roots in all directions, whose growth will
depend upon the amount of grass we leave
above the ground. All good farmers insist
that pastures should be permitted to have
a good start in the spring before turning
on the stock, and the above is the principal
reason for the practice. Later in summer, |
if the pastures are fed too close, the roots j
are injured by the heat and drouth. Not
only therefore, do stock do better on past- j
ure that is kept up to a " full bite," but a
given number of acres so managed will
support more stock and produce more grass
in a season than the same number of close
ly cropped acres.
As a general practice, grass in pasture
lands should not be allowed to go to seed, j
as it weakens the vigor of the roots, and
exhausts the soil. I know it is very difli
cult to prevent this without feeding too close
in the early part of the season, especially
with the Kentucky blue grass.
I have found the improvement of old
pasture lands by top-dressing exceedingly '
difficult. On heavy soils the application of
lime and wood ashes is recommended.—
Hut upon such lands when the grass fails,l
am satisfied that the better practice is to
plow them up. We cannot have good
grass with hard surface, and to get rid of
this difficulty, with clay lands, would re
commend an application of barn-yard ma
nure and swamp muck (where it can be
had) spread out, say in September or Octo
ber, after which, as soon as possible, plow
to the depth of eight inches.
If the soil is of fair quality, we may take
off a crop of corn the next season, thus
giving the land the benefit of the action of
the frost through the winter, and the sun
upon our fallow crop in the summer, both
of which are necessary to produce that mel
low condition of the soil without which we
cannot expect to have a good permanent
; pasture. As the corn crop cannot be got
| off" in time to sow the grass with wheat in
the fall, the common practice is to sow oats
the next spring,and wheat with grass seeds
in September. In this case we should ap
ply well rotted barn-yard manure to be har
! rowed in on the surface with the wheat.
At the practice of keeping manure until
fall is not to be recommended, the sod may
be broken up in fall or winter without ma
nure, and after the crop of corn is taken off,
the manure may be hauled out on the land
the next winter, (when the ground is not
too soft) deposited in heaps,aud spread out
in the spring and plowed under deep, when
we plow for oats. The plowing for wheat
will bring the manure again near the sur
face, just where we want it for the benefit
of the grass crop.
1 have been experimenting this spring
with plaster of Paris on meadows. The
application was made the 20th of April, af
ter the clover, timothy and orchard grass
was pretty well up. The result has been
most satisfactory. We sowed it in the
morning while the dew was on the grass,
at the rate of a bushel to the acre. Now
(dune 2d) the difference between the grass
where we have made the application, and
the portion we skipped, is remarkable, both
in the color and the quantity of the grass.
It seems to me that the plaster will increase
the erop at least one-third. The effect is
the most striking upon the clover, though
L; lias greatly increased the growth of the
other grasses. The land is a clay loam,
pretty stiff, upon limestone rock.—BCCKF.TK,

HOW TO KAISE AN APPLE ORCHARD
Ist. Select your trees yourself if possible;
don't allow a refuse tree to be set —it is
only wasting time and care ; determine
that every mean scrub of a tree go to the
bonfire before it finds a place in your orch
ard. See that the trees are carefully taken
up and carefully set in well prepared
2d. Let your land be carefully cultivated
for at least six years. Allow no grain, ex
cept occasionally, perhaps, a crop of buck
wheat, but never a crop of rye. The con
trast between a cultivated orchard and a
neglected one is astonishing, and the two
only need to be seen to be appreciated.
3d. Protect your trees from cattle, sheep,
mice and all destructive insects ; otherwise
your labor may be all lost. Exclude, all
domestic animals. Allow no mulching to
remain around the trees in winter to har
bor mice, and especially watch for the ap
ple borer, one of the most insidious enemies
of the apple tree. A gallon of soft soap di
luted with one or two gallons of soft water
applied to the trunks of the trees, is an ex
cellent thing for the trees, and is not agree
able to any insect. Nothing will kill an
insect quicker than soft soap.
4th. Follow up a judioious system of
pruning, leaving a good spreading, open
head. By pruning annually, there will be
no necessity of sawing off large branches,
and the result will be more prefect trees.—
Let the motto be followed—" whatever is
worth doing, is worth doing well."
REMEDY FOR KICKING COWS. —Cows seldom
kick without a good reason for it. Teats
are sometimes chapped or the udder tender,
harsh handling hurts them and they kick.
Sometimes long and sharp finger nails cut
their teats, and sometimes the milker pulls
the long hairs of the udder, while milking.
Shear oft" the long hairs, cut long finger
nails close, Uatlie chapped teats with warm
water, and grease them well with lard,and
always treat a cow gently. She will never
kick unless something hurts her, or she
fears a repetition of former hurts. When
handled gently, cows like to be milked.
\\ hen treated otherwise, they will kick and
hold up their milk. It is quite as consist
ent to whip a sick child to stop its crying,as
to whip or kick a cow, to prevent her kick
ing while being milked.
How TO LEAD ANIMALS. —CattIe, it is said,
of all descriptions,horses, calves and sheep,
may be led by making a slipping noose and
fastening it to the lower jaw, passing the
rope (which must be small) around the
neck and through the noose on the jaw. It
is a very easy way of leading a-sheep, one
not obliged to go behind and "push." After
once pulling, the sheep will follow right a
long without any trouble.
ORIGIN OK THE CARTER POTATOES. —About
thirty years ago, more or less, John Carter,
a resident of Savoy, in the county of Berk
shire, experimented for the purpose of the
improvement of potatoes by planting po
tato balls ; and at harvesting the first year,
he found that he had advauced oue step
towards bringing out a new potato. He,
therefore, the next year, planted the seed,
raised the first, and so on for several years,
till he produced the potato now distinguish
ed as the "Carter." Mr. Carter died SQon
after, and therefore did not enjoy the full
glory of his discovery.
THE amount of butter made in this coun
try last year is estimated to be not less than
514,000,000 lbs., valued at #82,270,000.
