Pruning does nqt mean butchering and mutilating them. It means the removal of the dead nad defective limbs. It means that one of two limbs that cross 'and rub each other should be cut off. It means that all branches that are removed should be cut off close to the axis of support and the wound treated with an antiseptic dressing. The practice of cutting off the ends of the branches not only destroys the beauty of the tree but positively shortens its life and invites early decay. If your trees are growing taller than you desire, it is because the trees are too close. Mature trees should not stand closer than 30 feet and if* they are planted closer they should be thinned when the ends of the branches begin to touch the tree next to it. It is qarely a shade tree grows too thick and it is safer to trust nature to do the thinning than to one who is not an expert in doing this kind of work.

It was about seven o’clock when he started out and the distance between the homes is about five miles. After he was out a short time he lost his way and was traveling in the wrong direction before long. His father lives near Blackburn. About 2 o’clock Sunday morning óra Whithead was passing near Marshall Chew’s home, north of Algiers, and discovered Mr. Miley and realized his frozen condition.

His near-sightedness coupled with thé snow storm in his face was what caused him to lose his way. He is a single man and lives at home with his father. He is a>out 68 years old.
