Ola Apple Tree.
Th theory I quit prevalent
among many farmers that apple trees
should be cut dowa when they cease to
be productive In consequence of the
deny of the branches writes E. XI.
Shaw in N. E. Farmer. Oftentlmet
and In most caset iucu treat can be
restored to a vigorous growth and
htalthy condition by cutting away tb
eld decayed portion and allowing new
branchsa to take their place. Thlt
will nearly always fellow when trees are
well cared for and a liberal supply of
potash be given them. I jaw aa apple
tree recently on Orchard hill la tb
town of Kensington. In thla atat that
waa the remaining tree of an orchard
set out ninety years ago. All of tb
other treea wer cut down thirty-five
yean ago. Thlt one bearing a favorite
apple by the pleadings of a large fam-
ily of children waa allowed to remain.
Of late year the ground around It has
been cultivated and It la a constant
bearer. It Is now covsred with a dense
green foliage and the limbs bave made
a growth thlt year of over a foot. Itt
condition to-day shows the folly of cut
ting down tree aa soon aa they cease
to grow and bear fruit. Plow around
them or where tMa csnnot be done use
a spring tooth harrow. Mulch them well
and put on a good supply of muriate of
potash cut off the old decaying mots-
covered brauchas. grow out a new top
of smooth wood and you will have the
pleasure of seeing large tmoota frutl
growing where once were only small
Inferior applea. Age baa but Utile to do
with causing a tree to decay. One of
tbe apple trees set out by the Arcadians
more than 150 years ago. Is still stand

Flne Soil Within certain limits the
finer the soil Is the more available be-
comes tbe plant food It contalna In
the rase of stiff rlsy aolls. Professor
Corbett holds that tht state of dlrlsloa
of toll partlclet ran be carried too far.
To pulverise It Into dutt make It
park and If rain occur It becomes
adhrtlve and upon drying loses Ita fri-
able consistency. In general however
the danger doe not He In too much
cultivation but from the contrary side.
With sandy gravelly and loamy soils
the more thorough the cultivation the
more available food will be utilized by
the plant. The primary requlrementa
for success are deep plowing followed
by a thorough harrowing aa a prepara-
tion for a suitable seed bed. Ex.
The Dandelion. The dandelion Is aa
OM World flower not native In Ameri-
ca sav far to th north and on aome
ot th highest of our western moun-
tains. Hut somehow it waa brought
here perhaps from England In old
colonial time. Now w see It golden
beads and feathery balls at every
grassy roadside the "clocks" the boys
and girls blow to tell the hour. A tew
years ago farmers In the northwest
found a new weed a vile prickly weed
tn their wheat fields. In a very short
time this weed the Busalan thistle hat

Marketing -'ot Easy. After the car
ot the cows and the making ot the but-
ter have been mastered the marketing
cf the product proves a stumbling
blotk to a great many of our dairy-
men. It Is sad. but It Is true that the
average dairyman exercise lutle or no
business faculty In the marketing ot bit
product. Too many persons seem to
think that as their puieuts and grand-
parents milked cows and made butter
and took It t the grocery atore. where
It was dumped Into a b-irrel with the
good bad vud indlffereut. and traded
It for a few groceries that they must
do the same tnd that there Is no other
legitimate market fur their butter.
Feeding Intelligently. Every dairy-
man should study tbe condition and re-
qulrvmenta ot each Individual cow In
order to teed lutclllgently. When he
has done this then be should lose no
time In purchasing aomo icale and a
Hancock tett and begin the weeding
out process. It may cause aome pangs
ot aorrow to lean that aome ot th
favorite cows have only been paying
halt fare. But they should be disposed
of for In no other way can a high
standard be reached. In all the va-
rious departments ot tbe dairy bual-
ntss system should reign supreme
there ahould be a certain time tor
doing everything and tl ahould be don

of its denouement. Aa la well known
a ray of light It exceedingly complex

green yellow orange and red which
are visible to the ordinary eyesight
besldet at least two Invisible rays
namely the X-ray of Dr. Roentgen on
tbe violet end of the spectrum and th
Infrared ray discovered by Prof. I-axg
ley of the Smithsonian Institution.
Each of these invisible raya haa a spe-
cific chemical effect which Is chiefly
manifested in the procesa of photo
graphy. It Is. therefore reasonable to
In'er that each of th dSerent coloi
rays may have Itt own peculiar office
chemical or otherwise. Ity a eerie ol
experiments Dr. J. Mount Eleyer of
New York who has been working on
this subject for many yean boa been
able to show tiut certain color rayi
are more efflracloui in killing germi
than othera. He bat found that tht
blue red and orange raya bave a pro-
nounced chemical effect upon organic
matter and of these the blue la the
moat powerful. Now there la ol
course a certain proportion of blue la
every ray of light but It the amount
ran be Increased It Is natural to sup-
pose that Its beneficial effect will be
greater. For thlt reaion it waa at first
believed that an entirely blue atmoa-
rhere speaking literally would be
the best destroyer of germs. By exper-
iment upon ta 11 v leg body however
it was fjund that tbe undiluted blue
was too powerful and finally Dr. Dley-
er bit upon the plan of alternating it
with streaka of white. This treatment
wat at first used upon patlenta af-
flicted with nervout disease and tht
effect produced waa very beneficial.
Hut owing to Its known chemical ef
fects upon germs Dr. Dleyer tried It
upon various infectious disease and
with such good results that he pro-
poses with the aid of a stock ooupany.
