THE PIANO CONTEST.

We never hear a man boasting

growers and nurserymen it is hard
ly worthy of even a passing notice
—the very fact that there is ab
solutely no certainty us to results
from seedling trees should be a
knock-down argument against
them. It is argued by those who
arc advocates of seedlings that
the) arc longer lived. No real or
scientific tests show this to be a
fact—planted side by side and
watched carefully so ns to make a
test case and demonstrate beyond
a doubt whether seedlings live
longer than budded trees the re
suits have shown that compara
tively there is no dill’crenee.
Then as to time saved: Suppose
you plant a seedling tree (tho
pencil for instance), you must wait
at least three years to obtain re
sults; and then in all probability
disappointment. Plant a free stone
and get a cling stone or vice versa.
Suppose on tin* contrary you want
a free stone early or late as tin*
case may Is*, aud when your tree
fruits you have precisely what you
bargained for. Then again, do
men who are in the nursery Inisi

trees? They would simply Ik* at

and those who deal in or sell trees
could promise you nothing; chaos,
confusion aud disappointment
would Ih* the result, and all con
fidence destroyed in promises or
statements made by those who sold

Those who favor planting seed

elderly people, who can assign no

peaches or other fruits can be
grown from seedling trees we will
admit. Hut the uncertainty re
sulting from seedlings should deter
all intelligent cultivators from
risking time and money on trees

not Ik* charged against nurserymen
or dealers in trees that they are
actuated by mercenary or sinister
motives in selling budded or graft
