In planting IMK Mr «ron «n more
common Mian tW one of crowding the
plot with too many plants. We nave
■cea peach orchard* planted at the dis-
tance* of twelve, ten, and even eicht
feet. The reason viven was that tney
" wanted to shade the gronnd."
Now there may be other crops for
which shade is desirable, and what
wonld the same men think of planting
these "close enough to shade the ground f"
They reply that fruit and field crops ire
different. Yes, theyjtre different; but
the same general principles apply in
each caso. The crowded orchard will
nover give a prodnct equal to its varie-
ties, neither will a crowded field of corn.
And a very dry season will show the
difference between the crop at proper
distances and the crowdcd crop, whether
it be peaches or o«rn.
Whenever the rootlots of one tree
minglo with those of another feeding
upon a common gronnd, then the trees
so mingling their roots are crowded, and
will injure each other just in proportion
as the roots of ono tree take up the
•/Nourishment needed by the neighboring
WW the rootlets of two. or mofo
tréos havp come to the same spot1 in the
soil to obtain the elements of nourish-
ment for their respective trees, it is
evident that whatever is talccn by one
cannot be obtained by another, and
therefore each gets a short supply.
"But," says the advocate of close
planting, " T want the trunks of the
trees shaded." So do we; but we let
every treo shad' its own trunk, which it
will do if you give it a fair chance.
Wo have heard the owner of an
orchard, planted ten feet apart, com-
plaining that his trees did not shade the
ground, nor shade each other enough,
and thorefore he reasoned that tho trees
ought to have been planted stt'U closer.
His fruit in that dry year was not worth
gathering. He had a corn field planted
. very thick during the same dry season,
but did not propose closor planting as a
remedy for it.
At the same time, otr own trees were
/rom sixteen to eighteen feet each way,
and the boughs of the different treea
were, in some cases, interlocking, show
ing that a still greater distance would
have been better for tjtie. trees.
shaded their own trunks abnndantly,
and oar fruit sold at a handsome figura.
While trees are young they Wy no
be crowded with close planting, but
with advancing age and increased r&
auirouients, they must have room or
tney will yield poor crops and die pre-
We would never plant- a peach
orchard less than sixteen feot each way,
and we would prefer a still greater dis-
tance. . ■ §f -•

Knnm Faith.—Sir William Napier
was one day taking a long coaniry walk
when bo met a little girl abont five years
old sobbing over a broken bowl. She
had dropped and broken it in bringing
it back from the field to which she had
taken hor father's dinner, and said she
would be beaten on her return home for
having brokon it. As she said this a
sudden gleam of hope seemed to cheer
her. Qhe innocently looked up into Sir
William's faco and said, " But you can
mend it, can't you!" Ho explained
that he could not mond the bowl, but
the trouble he could overcome by the
gifl'of a sixpence to buy another. How-
ever, on opening bis purso it was empty
of silver, and ho promised to meet his
little friend on the same spot at the
same hour next day, and to bring six-
pence with him; bidding her mennwhilo
to tell her mother she had seen a gen-
tleman who would bring her the money
' for a bowl next day. 1 ho child, entirely
trusting him, went on hor way oomforted
On his return homo he found an invita-
•iKm awaiting him toj dine nt Bath the
following evening, to meet some one
whom he cspccially wished to see. lie
hesitated for somo little time, trying to
calculate, tho possibility of giving a
meeting to his littlo friend of the broken
bowl and still boing in time for tho din.
ncr party in Bath, but finding that this
could not be, ho wrote to declino ac-
cepting the invitation, on tho plea of
41 a previous engagement," saying, u I
cannot disappoint her; slio trusted me."

AN infinite multitude of diseases wait
upon woman's footsteps from the era-
Ale to the grave, and so long as she exposes
herself to the various vioissitudes of weather
and ever-changing «cones of life's fitful fol-
lies, so long will she be the recipient of
troubles peculiar to her sex. But few ladies
are exempt from some form of female com-
plaint. The diseases and symptoms of some
of those affeotions alluded.to, are as follows:
chlorosis, or green sickness, all irregularities,
hysterics, palpitation, siok headache, diffi-
culty of breathing, smothering sensations,
prolapsus uteri and ulceration, cold feet
and hands, giddiness and swimming of the
head, pain in the side and baok, low spirits
and melancholy, mental and physical pros-
tration,^wakefulness,indigestion, constipa tion,
torpid liver, and all that elass of chronio
complaints peculiar to the female sex. The
inliar and valuable combination known as
English Female Bitters,
cures the above female complaints, and all
other troubles that affiiot old or young, mar-
ried or single females.
It at oace arouses and invigorates the fe-
male frame, giving strength to the weak and
feeble, building up the emaciated, quieting
the nervous, imparting life and buoyancy to
the dull and listless, relieving pain, regula-
ting' the liver and bowels, and otherwise
gathering up and restoring the shattered fe-
male constitution. Sold by merchants and
