two-thirds of the people would vote
for the third party candidates, or
language to that effect. Mr. Wil
liams has been an advocate of the
third party movement to sonic ex
tent for some time, but the Gakhttb
is ii.fotmod that the political dis
cussions at the meeting served to
greatly soften and modify bis view,,
on the third party qilestion. The

Every reader of the Gaxettk who
owns any land should grow at least a
fow of the choice \ irietics of (leuehes.
We may safely assume that a large
number already have trees growing,
und to such the matter of pruning is
important and require! attention.
Pruning accomplishes several im
portant results. It gives a symmet
rical shape to tho tree, removes su
perfluous und dead wood, hikes; out
brunches that oross and oliitf,, other
branches, givrs a favorable opportu
nity to examine for and renij-re
borers, aud, in fact, do anything that
the tree nay require.
If should be kept in mind that
the fruit is produced on word of the
previous year’s growth, and also that
in favorable sensors much more fruit
will sot than the treo should be al
lowed to carry; consequently we
must grow new wood for next year’s
fruiting mid. also thin the fruit
for tlie presell*crop, botii rf which
are accomplished by pruning.
In • pruning, all Bp. on to, oross
branches and dead wood should be
removed entirely by a olear out
close to the tree, so us not te leave
a snag. All tho main branches
should then lie shortened in, or cut
book as it is commonly ciillod, from
one-lmlf to two thirds their ntire
length, This will leave miiiiie limbs
for all the fruit the tree suould be
allowed to bear, besides the fruit will
he closo to tho body of the tre on
strong branch instead of tho tip end
if a long branch, which would bond
easily, or ho vhjbpod about by tlie
wind to tho severe detriment of the
Another advantage is that Up
growth of 1KW wood is greatly iu
voted by tho pruning, while the
cliitnietor of fruit is greatly im
proved, and the prospect for regular
crops is much enhanced. A tree
that is allowed to overbear is inca
pacitated for making mother crop,
until it has had a year or two to re
gain sufficient strength.
While prtipjiig, the trunk of tree
should be examined tor borers,whioh
are easily located by the oxudation
of gum, generally near the ground.

It is refreshing, these da;i, eaya
the Albany Herald, to meet a Geor
gia farmer who is making farming
pay, and says so.
The Herald met such a man in
Albany yesterday iu tho person of
Mr. Ed. Mcltee, son of Mr. Geo. it.

Imd a long talk with li.tn. Al
though Mr. Mcltee knew lie was

“I)o yon find a ready market for

“Principally right there at home. --
