Besides it is of most striking:
beauty and will add a very valuable
semi-tropic touch to the landscape.
Still again it does not xob the ad
jacent orchard or soil like any
other tree especially theeucalyptus.
More hardy varieties should be
used further north . A double row
setting 10x10 feet is always
better and if one is eucalyptus and
the other the north one is one
of the conifers adapted to this
cjjuute; such as the Monterey
pine or cypress th? most ideal
windbreak will be secure.
Still hardier would be a belt of
double row of Texas cedar tall-
growing arbor vitae or Japanese
privet. The latter would be par-
ticularly adapted all over South
Texas. It grows well with little
or mo water is evergreen quite
rapid in growth and hardy. I
know of specimens in Mexico tha
are four feet in diameter at 18
years with only 10 inches of rain-
fall. Olives hackberry inesquite
salt cedar and various other trees
are suggested to plant for wind-
breaks but they are either of too
Slow or too recumbent growth to
give best results.
It should fee remembered that a
solid obstruction is not at all
essential to secure satisfactory pro-
tection. Indeed a half-solid obsta-
cle is preferable for while it
allows enough circulation through
to prevent a descending rush of
air as occurs back of a solid wall
yet the heavy sweeping currents
are deflected upwards and away.
And this obstruction must be high
enough and close enough together
to hinder the gale from dipping to
the ground between them.
The distance of the belts .apart
as recommended will give adequate
protection while these "trees are
young. Latere whctl they are 100
feet or so high it will probably be
found practical to dispense with
every second belt.
ACTrjAI PROFIT THEREFKOM.
It will be found that where the:
eucalyptus is used the timber and
fuel that can be made by careful
cultivation from year to year will
many times repay the entire cost.
of 'artificial windbreaks is incon
siderable as the trees need not be
nearer than ten feet and the same
care given other cropsshould keep
them in growing condition.
ESPECIALLY NEEDING WINDBREAKS
are all citrus fruits and indeed all
fruits to expect fair unblemished
fruit as well as for "norther" pro
tection. Truck is not .less bene-
fitted for besides the mechanical
injury mentioned there is the loss;
of moisture which is very much
greater than normal where th
wind always dry in March and
April gets unobstructed sweep at
the then succulent tender crops.
Powerful aid to successful pro-
fitable fruit truck and general soil
.culture will be given the mau who
secures good windbreaks either by
planting or by saving what is
bountifully bestowed by nature
or still better by both means.

Why He Was There.
-Mrs. Hetty Green in an inter
view in New York condemned the
excesses of modern society.
"And with all these excesses"
she said with all these swimming
parties' and monkey dinners and
horse teas what is the result?
"A fashionable hostess greeted
a young man at a dance.
" 'So glad to see you" she said
'but where is your brother? Why
didn't he come too?'
" 'He couldn't' the young man
explained. 'Only !one of us could
come. So we tossed 'Up for it.'
" 'Tossed up! How delightful!'
cried the hostess. 'Andyouwon?'
"The young man yawned. : and
" 'No I lost.' "

"I sent my little girl" writes i
correspondent ''to the butcher
with 50 cents to buy some steak.
She came home 10 cents short in
change and was sent back for the
missing coin. Presently the butch-
er's boy called with the dime and
explained that his employer had
found out his mistake although
they had seen nsthing of my little
girl- Time went on and I felt
anxious until I heard her singing
merrily in the garden. 'Did you go
back to the butcher's?' I asked.
j 'No mother; it is such a long way?
't so I asked God to send the dime.
jHas it not come yet?' " Ex.
