you should use dynamite to mane
holes ifor your apple trees, I beg to
say that this depends entirely upon
the conditions. If there is imper
vious hardpan beneath your soil, or
if there 1b a layer of rock, or any
thing that will prevent the penetra
tion by the roots, or the proper aa
cumulation and retention of mols
ture, it would be a good plan to shat
ter the hardpan or bed rock by the
use of dynamite. If the subsoil is
loose, and there is no impervious or
Impenetrable rock immediately be
neath it, as is found in the strata bo
low shale soil and gravel soil, and
certain other conditions, it is not at
all necesasry to use dynamite, and
this may even result in some Injury

I believe it possible to make the
subdrainage too complete for the
good of the trees under certain cir

more about this. At the present
time I would not advise our friends
to rush tashly into the dynamiting
process. It is "best to try it only
on a few tree places, and watoh the
