To Use Three Horses renst.
As it is becoming quite common to ,usc
.three horses cow instead of two, perhaps
it would b.c of advantage and a savin;; to
some of our young .farmers to tell tiiein
how to Jiitch up three .horses, with an
equalizer that, instead of costing five dol
lars for a patent article, can be inado for
a few cents. I take a piece of two by
four, or two by five, scantling and bore
. a hole near each end, as I would for a
double-tree ; but the pieces need not be
over nine to twelve inches long; then
.bore a hole one-third of the length from
one end, and two-thirds of the length from
the other end, and attach the piece by a
clevis and ring to the plough clevis, the
.longest endup; then hitch my middle
horse to the top, and the team to the bot
tom end, or short end of the equalizer,
using a long double tree for the team,
long enough for a horse to work in the
middle. y using this simple device a
saving can bo made of five dollars, and
the equalizer is, I claim, better than any
other, for the simple reason, that it brings
a team nearer the noso of the plough beam
and consequently nearer the work.

French Method of Raising Tomatoes.
As soon as a cluster of flowers are vis
ible, the stem is topped down to the clus
ter, so that the flowers terminate the stem.
The effect is that the sap is immediately
impelled into the two buds next below the
cluster, which soon push strongly and
produce another cluster of flowers each.
When these are visible,tho branch to which
they belong to is also topped down to
their level, and this is done successfully.
By this means the plants become stout,
dwarf busjics, not above eighteen inches
high. In order to prevent their falling
over, sticks or strings are stretched hori
zontally along the rows, so as to keep the
plants erect. In addition to this, all the
laterals that have no flowers, and after
fifth topping, all materials whatsoever,
are nippcd.off. In this way the ripe sap
is directed into the fruit, which acquires
a beauty, size and excellence unattaiued
by other means.
The Depth of Trees.
There has recently sprung up some
.controversy as to the proper depth that
trees should be transplanted, and as is
usual in controversies of this kind among
practical men, there is not the least hope
m their ever coming to it common opin
ion on the question. And this is natu
ral and perhaps as it should be. Differ
ent kinds of trees frequently require dif
ferent modes of culture, beginning with
the planting. For instance, dwarf pears
ehould bo planted deep, two or three
iuehes below the union of the quince
with the pear, in all soils where a dwarf
pear ought to be. A fir or spruce should
be planted shallow, and so, as a rule,
should standard pear as well as apple
trees. This exception should, however,
be made in light, porous soils, they may
be gauged deeper than in clay moulds. -Thus
the heavier the soil, the shallower
should the trees be planted. Such is our
lYhcu to sow Grass Seed.
It has been the practice of most far
mers to sow grass seed in the spring, with
wheat, barley or oats. This will do if the
land is top wet to work until lato in May
or early in June, it is better to sow grain
without grass seed, and when the grain
is taken off, plough in the stubble, put
on the manure, sow on the grass sped, and
lay the land down smooth. It is better
for the following reasons :
1st. The youoji grass will mak,o a more
vigorous growth ihan'when sown lato in
May,with grain, because the grain will
grow up quick and overpower thc.young
grass which will' be but feeble ' at best.
And when the grain is taken off, it will
sometimes die out by drought and the
heat of the sun, and if it does not die it
will make but a sickly growth.
2nd. Tho land is generally dryer in
August, and in bettor condition to seed
down, and it puts the stubble out of the
way, and farmers have more time to do
the work well.
3d. Farmers can grow their own seed
for less than half the present high priCb.
Therefore, farmers that have ' land in
grass, and no grass seed on hand, would
do well to wait until grass seed grows be
fore seeding down, and let speculators
keep thqir seed for their own use until
they are glad to sell at a fair price. N.
Co.n'sidkh able Dangkii. A conva
lescent invalid, Mr. J , brought a
suit lately against hifl doctor, and alleged
that the said Esculapius had persisted in
calling on him personally alter ho was
cured, which foes he now refused to pay.
Dr. F denied the fact and called in a

" Is it true," a.tked the Court, " that
Dr. F coutinucd his visits when Mr.

witness " as long as I saw the doctor
with Mr. 13 thought he was in con
siderable danger," which naive opinion
caused the Court to burst into a fit of
