A fortnightly review. From weeds. A Good mulch is of advantage As it prevent the growth of grass and weeds and renders the soil moist it is a grave mistake entertained by some that manuring is not beneficial to nut Trees. By the application of Well rotted barnyard manure the growth of Black Walnut and Butternut Trees May be increased very rapidly. Trees that have been manured come into bearing sooner and produce larger crops.

Most of our Nursery men we a till orders for Nute of All Farmer who lives within a Days lie of a locality where nuts Are in own would do Well to take his family Nutting and Lay in a Supply not Only Tor planting but for cracking during the Winter. There is nothing against taking a few acres of Good land and planting it with Nute. If this is done Corn potatoes and other Hoed crops May be Crown on the land till the Trees arc quite Large at which time it May be seeded Down to pasture. A Grove of nut Trees will prove a source of pleasure Aud profit to every Farmer. 1 he Trees make Fine fuel and Timber if it is necessary to thin them out. I erf. 13 a Good Deal of pleasure in gathering Nute and More in cracking and editing them. In All regions along the Ohio River As Well As in most parts of the South thousands of hogs subsist on Nute during several months in the year.

Extraordinary hallucinations. A should a lady a Home dress last forever p because she never wears it out. There Are a great Many persons in the world who suffering under some form or other of nervous disorder habitually see figures or faces hear threatening or insulting voices even feel blows and taste poisons which have no existence outside their own minds and neither argument nor demonstration of the impossibility of what they allege they perceive will shake their convictions in the least. You assure me a they will say a a that i am mistaken that there Are no such persons As i see no such voices As 1 hear but i protest to you that i see and hear them As distinctly As i see and hear you at this moment and that they Are jus As real to what Are we to reply i have replied sometimes a that As you Are alone in one Side in your opinion and All the world the on the other Side i must need think either that you Are an exam admit a a a a a Afri a a a Vanoe a i the re of the world or by you an a mime Long a a a a a it and As 1 done to think you to h Genius i am bound to our Moses Are disordered. Tat the argument Doe not produce the least few things add More to the attractions and value of a place than a Grove of nut bearing Trees. A Farmer May have a Grove of this kind in a few years without spending much time or Money. The soil and climate of this latitude Are Well adapted to the growth of the Black Walnut Butternut the common and Shell bark Hickory a few decrees further South the Chestnut and Pecan do admirably. Nut bearing Trees will grow quite As Well on broken land that is difficult to cultivate or even to As on that which is level. In fact the Hickory and Chestnut appear to succeed Best on Rocky hillsides while the Butternut Black Walnut and Pecan thrive exceedingly Well along the Banks of streams and ravines. On nearly every Large farm there Are Sev i Al acres of waste land that could be covered with Fine nut Trees in a few years which would add much to the Beauty and value of the place. If nut bearing Trees Are to be started on broken land it is not necessary to plow it. As the Trees should not stand nearer than sixteen feet from each other it will be easy to prepare the soil for them with a Spade and mattock. The soil should be broken to a Good depth and the stones taken out. It is a Good planto Diga Hole and put m some manure and to place some Fine soil above it. Some successful planters drive a stake or Force an Iron bar into the soil several feet fill it with one manure or Forest leaves and Plant the nut directly on top of it. By doing this the top Root has a tent downward without difficulty is not easy to transplant nut bearing Trees even when they Are quite Young on account of the top roote. Some have succeeded in removing them by cutting off the top Root the season be fore they Are to be removed which re suite in the production of laterals. Others Cut a Trench round the tree at some distance from the trunk in addition to cutting off the top Root which enables them to pry up the Earth that adheres to the roots. This is sometimes done in the Winter or Early Spring when the Earth is Frozen and the tree with the mass of Earth removed on a sled to its new location. The operation however is a laborious one and Many state that Trees so removed Are sky bearers and Short lived. Planting the nuts in the places where Trees Are wanted appears to be the Best of of taming a Grove of nut bearing Trees. The Best time to Plant Nute i in the fall As soon As they drop from i a Trees. Thev should not be panted very deep a As it is necessary to have the Frost act upon them and crack the shells. They May be planted m the Soring in which Case they should be kept Over the Winter packed a Hall boxes with Sand which Are Lef Touton doors. It is Best to Plant two or three nuts in a place As they arc not re am to sprout. Sometimes a nut Wil not sprout the first Spring after it is planted but will retain its vitality a come up the second season. If three roote sprout in one pla<e�?T., Rii Best one can be reserved and the others destroyed As soon As they Are Large enough to be out of danger. Chestnuts should not lie allowed to a flae Rgee.

They should be pm aed East Liverpool is beautifully situated about fifty Miles above Wheeling on the Banks of the Ohio in the southwestern part of Columbiana county 100 Miles from Cleveland anti Foi Miles from Pittsburgh. Its natural Gas Wells form one of the seven wonders of the world. I he Are situated in and around the City amlo Ive it a continual Supply of the finest Fiirst. The Gas is almost As free As the air. It costs practically nothing anti forms the illuminator anti Heater of the town. The City is lighted by it anti the Street lamps Blaze at Noonday As Well As at Midnight it costs nothing to let them bum and it takes trouble to put them out. Almost the entire fuel used in the town is this Gas. It is conducted nto the grates and stoves in pipes Ami but it All the cooking and heating is done. It does the business makes no dirt s easy to kindle and costs very Littou. Wrev for instance the Dobbin House where i am now writing is a three store Brick containing in the neighbourhood of fifty rooms Ami a basement. Its Light and fuel for the whole House is composed of Gas and costs on $14 per month the year round and its Light is not the flickering hockey of poorly manufactured Gas but a and which approximates in its brilliance that of the electric Light m but the question is How Long Wilt this last will these Wells continue to Send Forth their streams of Light giving Power throughout the centuries or will they die in the course of a Short time this of course no one can Tell. The prospects Are however very Good for the future. The first Well discovered now Burns As brightly As when it was first opened and for the last Twenty years has never flagged in a Ilia nay and none of those now in operation have even shown any signs of giving out. For years Liverpool used manufactured Gas never dreaming of the Rich Supply that was wasting daily under its a a feet the poor Quality of this caused col. H. R. Hill in 1859, to Experiment with and open his first Gas Well in this Vicinity. A Well was dug being some 450 feet deep and a pipe Laid l hat Well has been furnishing foe and Lief i to several houses producing the steam for a Large engine and burning Potter kilns every Day for Over Twenty years. The great Beauty of the Gas me is the entire absence of smoke and dirt and when in open grate pl10.? through a burning Iron log to de m the imitation of Wood or Over lumps of Coke or red hot fire Brick it has All the cheerfulness of an open Coal fire or an old fashioned country place with none of its , Leader.
