Forest Fires and Impoverished Land
It appears to be a disputed question wheth
w or not animal forest tires impoverish U
and on which they occur. It can be read/
en that this question is an important 4®
t> those who live in the pine country oiebe
jouth and when every year millions ofAres
me burned over. Mr. Daniel Domttt, of
Mississippi, says it is generally belieid tlmt
hese fires do impoverish the so We,
vithout careful reflection, have that
(pinion. But what do the facts Let

Simed by these annual fires g, Upward and
mingle with the air whence t<ey originally
came, and 5 per cent., the a/tes remain on
the soil and in time mingle vith it and help
enrich it. These contain line, phosphoric
acid, potash and several ther ingredients
of less importance than tlese. All of these
came from the soil, and every grain of them,
by the action of fire, is given back to the
soil to lav used again for fertilizing purposes.
Fire cannot consume (hem or diminish their
weight. Portions of these ashes are drawn
from the subsoil by the roots of trees and
plants, and by fire or natural decay of the
plants and trees they are deposited on the
surface and make the surface soil more fer
tile at the expense of the sub-soil. Some of
these mineral fertilizers come from ton feet
or more below the surface, and jtri) taken up
wherever the roots of trees or plants extend
eutward or downward tor food.
Then if forest fires send all of these ele
ments that came from the atmosphere back
from whence they came, and the mineral
elements back to the soil from w hence they
came, how does this action impoverish the
Do forest tret?, whose fallen leaves are
annually destroyed by fire, indicate a grad
ually impoverished soil? We think not. No
me denies that if the leaves and decayed
jvood are left to mingle with the surface soil
he soil will become much richer. That is
lature's mode of enriching poor soils. These
'aves and decayed vegetation are nature’s
utilizers. Nature thus mingles the ele
lents of the atmosphere with elements
mnd in the soil, and these, properly blended
nd fixed in the soil, constitute fertility.
Does not burning the leaves, then, simply
revent nature from making the soil richer
ithout making it any poorer? Do not the
me, phosphorus, potash, etc., brought from
;low and left on the surface make the lands
imewhat richer than they were before?
oes this hold good in regard to yearly fires
1 prairies and in marshes?
Burning the leaves and rubbish in forests
mually has its good results to offset any
sadvantages that may result from it.
here fires destroy numerous snakes and
?rmin and insects in untold millions. The
rest fires sometimes occur when all of these
•e out in full blast, breeding and depositing
sgs without number. Tick bugs, worms,
icths, lizards, scorpions, spiders and a long
st of other troublesome creatures are de
royed by these fires. Then they destroy
itten and fallen timber, rotten limbs of
dlon trees and chips of the woodman, and
ivo place to the native forest grasses, that
row with great vigor in the spring, and the
attle are very fond of them. Besides, the
ires destroy the young scrubby growth of
hrubs and vines and gives the cattle a better
toanee to range through the woods in gath
iring their daily supply of food.
How to Protect the Grape Crop.
On of the great troubles of the grape
growers is the rot. Since the rot first ap
peared on grapes, says the Philadelphia
Jfrcord, many experiments have been made
in order not only to prevent its ravages but
to stamp out the disease, and, although the
damage annually reduced, yet it is still a
formidable enemy to the grape grower. As
the work around the vines must be done
early, no time can now be lost. All the old
wood—or decayed rubbish around the vines
—must be destroyed by fire, and the ground,
made perfectly clean lief ore it shnlt lie plowed
or disturbed, then saturated with a solution
of copperas, which is prepared by dissolving
one pound of copperas in six gallons of lime
water. As the disease is propagated by dis
eased berries, the work does not cease until
the end of the season, so every one that show s
the slightest signs of attack must be thrown
into the fire and completely consumed. It
a ill not do to bury the berries or attempt to
destroy them in any other manner. This
work will be very laborious, but every year
thereafter the cases wdll lie fewer and the
work will decrease. If all the growers in a
community would act together it would lie
to thoir mutual advantage. Wet weather
is very favorable to the rot, as it has been
noticed that its ravages are not so great
ni ing periods of drought. The success at
tending the bagging of grapes is due to the
fact that tho clusters are kept dry, but the
egging of the grapes must be done just as
ou as the young clusters shall have been
ormed, as it will not do to postpone the
work till later. In some sections resort is
111,1 to roofing the vines with boar ds or mus
bn, which method has proved successful.
rot is a disease which is annually
l iopagated by spores, and to dostroy these
‘pores is to prevent the spread of tho dis
but it may require several seasons
wore tho disease can be entirely destroyed,
‘he proper fertilization of the crop is also
•mother important matter as well as good
cultivation. The grape crop is a very val-
Hn d<. one, as less labor is required in the
tmeyard, when free from disease, than is
necessary for grain crops, wlillo the profits
much larger. It pays, therefore, to
make every attempt to prevent the ret, and
ad grape growers shoidd unite in tho effort.

in the Sov.the.ru Farmer gives
kf/tethod of making what he calls astrnw
b/y barrel, and quite an interesting barrel
to be. Hesays: “For eight years
ist I have had one in use, sometimes two.
uso a good kerosene barrel. Bore six one
and one-half inch holes in the bottom for
drainage between two Bx3 scantlings for
sitting the barrel on. Now eight inches
from the bottom, with the some auger, bore
eleven holes in true line around, six inches
up to the same, alternating them so as to
equally divide room to each plant, bore two
others in the same way, making room for
forty plants, then put six in the top. I use
oyster shells, corn cobs or broken stone in
the bottom to secure good drainage, next I
niakq my mixture using half good muck,
one quarter pulverized clay, the balance
good rich soil and some ground bone, mix
well. Now fill up to first tier of holes,
compact same to avoid too much settling.
Uso good plants, take in left hand and put
through the hole, reaching with the right
hand to help spread the roots out evenly,
being careful to keep up to the top of the
hole, as constant watering and settling tends
to cutting off the plant. Now do the same
to top of barrel, compacting carefully. I
use two staves at the bulge of the barrel;
cut just long enough to press in tightly, to
take off weight from lower plants. I leave
a depression in the top to water or feed, to
hurry and perfect berries. I have one now
a beauty, and it is really a constant joy, it
has blossoms, green berries all sizes and
fully ripe ones. I try to put on them a
bucket of water every day. 1 would not
like to dispense with them; of course they
must be renewed annually. Shovel the soil
out; I usually add a little fresh, mixing up
good and replacing just as before.
Something About Figs.
Mr. H. IV. Busk, of Orange county, Fla.,
writes an interesting letter to the Florida
Dispatch about fig seedlings. He says that
these plants are remarkable for the fat and
fleshy receptacle in which the seeds are im
mersed. In the case of the comment tig,
cross fertilization—generally so easy in mo
noecious plants—is next to impossible, the
male and female flowers being crowded to
gether inside the fleshy fruit, the flowers
being the minute bristle-like excrescences
always observable in the small cavity at the
apex of the fig. Seedlings of the edible fig
vary much in size, flavor, form and color,
and the numerous forms—upwards of a
hundred—now grown have been raised in
French, Spanish and Italian gardens.
Doubtless some of these are merely culti
vated varieties, as, from tho reason given
above, any systematic course of inter-cross
ing is next to impossible; yet, from the va
riety of fruits obtained, when seeds of im
ported figs are sown it seems to point to
hybridization having previously been ef
fected at some time or other. A good method
of cleaning the seeds of figs and other pulpy
fruits in small quantities is to cut open the
fruit and separate the seeds as cleanly as
possible with the fingers, then lay them on
a coarse towel and rub until dry; the pulp
quickly becomes absorbed by the cloth, or
they may be cleaned like strawberry seed,
by rubbing with clean, dry sand. The seed,
being rather fine, should be sown in shallow
boxes or protected beds, pressed down firmly
with a smooth board and barely covered
with fine soil, transplanting to other beds
when large enough to handle.
Major O. P. Rooks, of Fruitland, Fla., in
a Leesburg paper says: “Nature has given
this section precedence in the time of ripen
ing the peach over any other section north
of us, thereby doubling its market value.
Upon the hillsides of Fruitland Park the
Honey and Peeuto peaches and their hybrids
blush and ripen their luscious fruits two or
three weeks sooner than any other northern
section of the United States. This gives
them an enormous advantage over all other
varieties in the market.
“These varieties never fail to produce an
nual crops when properly cultivated. Then
fruit being marketed in April, May and
June, gives ample time for the new wood to
mature their fruit buds for the ensuing
.year, which is not the case with later varie
“The Bidwell, Peento, Honey and Horne’s
Hybrid are tho peachas at present most in
favor, although it is probable other hybrids
and seedlings of these varieties will be found
to equal, if not surpass them. These, we
find, producing abundant crops w-ith un
failing regularity of the recurring seasons.
“Be sure and plant stock budded upon
Florida grown seedlings. Georgia and
Northern grown stock is mostly diseased
having knotty excrescences on their roots.”
The Southern Fanner has some good
thoughts about early pasture which, by the
way, no farm can afford to do without.
Early pasture is to be secured by sowing
grasses which start early, not by turning
the stock on the grass as soon as it is high
enough to be grazed. The grass must make
considerable growth before it is fit for food,
and the more favorable the weather the
greater the growth required. Young grass
has too large a proportion of water and
when eaten by animals physics them while
affording little nutriment. It is not un
common to see animals turned on pasture
early lose flesh. The pasture also is injured.
The ground is wet and soft and all the
grasses, except possibly blue grass, are im
paired by the trampling they suffer. Grazed
upon before they have made a good root
growth and gathered considerable vigor,
grasses are slow to start up again and their
growth is feeble. Pasturing early, there
fore, is extravagant. If the animals are
kept on dry fee 1 two weeks longer they will
continue to gain flesh instead of losing. A
patch of ryo should be sown in the fall for
early spring pasture.
Farm and Stock Notes.
Colts that wore foaled in the fall will bo
no incumbrance at this season, us they can
be taken away from their (lams anil turned
on the pastures as soon as the grass shall bo
ready. It is an advantage to have the colts
on the farm foaled in the fail where the
mares are intended to do spring work.
The men who sold or gave away their
shoe]) throe and four years ago, liecause there
was more money in cattle or hogs, are now
realizing the error of rushing out of, or into,
a business with every little shade or turn in
affairs. Stick to vour sheep through thick
and thin, and in the end you will always,
come out ahead.
The gooseberry bushes do best when they
are well trimmed. They make very rank
growth. It Is a fruit that does best in par
tial shade, unit if the mildew do not attack
it a crop may always be looked for. They
are not grown extensively for sale, but
every farm or garden should have a space
devoted to them.

If the land in which the orchard is grow
ing be thin, plow up thoroughly ana keep
stirred without planting a crop. Good rich
soil for three or four years can be profitably
planted to some crop while the orchard is
growing. But after that the best plan is
either to seed down to clover and use as a
hog pasture, or to cultivate without allow
ing any crop to grow.
In England vetches, which grow like our
peas, arc commonly used as green manure.
They furnish a considerable a mount of vege
table matter, and in growing shade the soil,
which increases its proportion of vegetable
matter. But no crop is so good to plow
under as red clover, whose long roots pene
trate the subsoil, and thus make it fertile to
greater depth as they decay.
It is idle to think of growing a good crop
of onions unless previous preparations have
been made by thorough cultivation Jlie pre
ceding year. The crop will never succeed
on a sod, and a two years’ crop of potatoes
where sod had lieen turned under is better
than one. Onions require very rich soil,
and it is not always easv to secure this
without making it also foul with weeds.
If you have old trees that have failed to
yield profitable crop* of fruit, dig the soil
up thoroughly and then apply a good dress
ing of well-rotted stable manure and work
thoroughly into the soil. Then if yoif have
them, apply a dressing of wood ashes. If
these fail to revil e tho trees, after giving a
good pruning,it is about past redemption,
and should give way to something better.
The first planting of anvtldng in spring
should be covered very lightly. While the
soil is cold from deep freezing or ice water
during winter the sun warms it only a little
below the surface. There is always moisture
enough in early spring to bring seeds up,
and once they are germinated the plants will
give their roots ail tho needed covering by
striking down into the soil when this is bet
ter for their growth.
One of the arguments in favor of thresh
ing corn is that it also shells it nt the same
time. But it does this very imperfectly, as
the corn is usually damp when husked, and
it is not possible tor even the best shellers to
take off all the grain. But a worse objec
tion than this lies in the fact that where
corn is threshed and shelled as well as husked,
it does not keep as well ns when it is put in
tiie crib on the ear. There is much damp
ness in the grain of new corn and needs the
circulation of air which it gets in the crib
when on the cob to dry it out.
There is time in spring on ground entirely
naked to sow oats or some other rapidly
growing vegetable, to be turned under in
May as a green manure. Oats are probably
best for this purpose, and in most cases a
goi.d seeding will coast but little money. At
the height of eight or ten inches, which they
will speedily reach in fair soil, they furnish
an amount of plant food evenly distributed
over the surface that cannot be got in any
other way so cheaply, and the fertility thus
obtained immediately available. If pnosph
ate or other concentrated manure be drilled
in with the oats it will benefit the succeed
ing crop even more than if saved and ap
plied to that directly.
Onions are always grown on old ground,
and as a preparatory crop carrots are the
best. Four or five pounds of seed to the
acre is best, as much of the seed fails to
grow, from tho effect of the smut or some
cause,which destroys the vitality of the seed
before it breaks through the soil. Plow as
shallow as possible— not over four inches —
deep plowing being the cause of scullions.
The blight is caused by liee, and will show
during a spell of very hot, dry weather. To
grow the immense crops reported in this
country, the land must be very rich. It
was formerly the custom to grow onions
continuously on the same ground, bdt now,
due to the smut and maggots, the land
must be changed after a few years’ crop

Some observations made in France by M,
Cosson may throw light upon many mysteri
ous fires. In one instance spontaneous
firing arose from an air current heated at
77’ F. only. The wood slowly carbonized
at that temperature,.and being thus renderd
extremely porous a rapid absorption of
oxygen resulted, anil sufficient heat was
then produced to inflame the dry mnteriul.
In another case the warmth from the air
hole of a stove was sufficient to set tire to
the wood work.

very best thing you can do is to give LOVELL &

pretty certain that yon are getting tt at the low

thoroughly systematized to make a practice of
charging Tom, Dick end Hairy each a dlffi-rant
price, Donlikst they sell only the lending makes
and will have but little to do with Inferior goods,
as it is very unsatisfactory to sell them at any
