New Use for Refined Parafline Wax,
A new and important use for refined
parafline wax seems to have been dis
covered by a prominent resident of
Ohio, living near Lancaster, who had
two trees badly damaged by storm,
one being a maple and the other an ap
ple. In each case a large limb was
broken down from the trunk, but still
attacnea to it. 'I lie limbs were prop
ped up and fastened securely with
straps, very much as a broken Uv
mlht be fastened with splints, and
then melted refined wax poured iuto
and over all the cracks. The "surgical
operation" was entirely successful,
The parafline prevented the escape of
the sap, kept out the rain and mois
ture which would have rotted the trees
prevented the depredations of insecU,
ana tne limbs seem tnus far to be per
fectly re-attached to the trees. -x
