AGRICULTURAL HINTS. THE JAPANESE WALNUT. A Tree That In Now Attracting Some Attention in This Country. The Japanese walnut, which is now attracting some attention, appears to have been introduced into the United States about twenty-five «yeavs ago. The oldest trees are at Tower House, Shasta County. Cal., the property of Charles Camdcn. There arc two trees. "They bore nuts at eight years of age,' 1 Mr. Camden writes. "Tho trees grow Very thriftily and are handsome in shape, and arc very full and reg-ular bearers.'' The illustration is made from specimens from, these trees. Some fifteen years ago Mr. Camden sent trees to General Bidwell, at Eanelio Chico, and they are now bearing. These and the two original trees are the only ones yet fruiting in this country. The tree is now offered by some Eastern nurserymen, and we shall soon hcpe to know something definite as to its hardiness and capabilities. The species grows in Northern Japan and is said to be as hardy as an oak. Juglans Sieboldiana is closely allied to J.'Mandchouriea, another species of Eastern Asia, though it is not recorded as a cultiratcd plant in Japan. Dr. Maximowicz, the author of both species, •says that he has often seen them growing and knows of no good distinction between them, except the characters of the nuts. J, Mandchourica has oblong and ridged nuts, while .1. Sicboldiana should have short and smooth nuts. In shape, the nuts of the specimens figured (see illustration) arc very like those of J. Mandchourica, but their smoothness A TWIG OF JAPANESE WALNUTS. places them in the other species. It is very likely, as 'Dr. Sereno Watson suggests to me, that the two species run together, and that the California trees represent a, variation towards J. Mand- chourica. The species might be called with better propriety the Japanese butternut. Tho nuts are borne iu long clusters which often hold from fifteen to twenty specimens. Nuts are shown, with the husks on and removed, in the Illustration. The shell is thinner than that of our butternut, and the kernel is sweet and rich, much as in our species. The tree itself is attractive. It nppears to be one of the most promising of recent acquisitions. According to Luther Burbank, "the species is of easy culture. It accommodates itself to the same soils as its congeners, and grows with great vigor. It is easily grafted by approach upon ouv common walnut [English walnut?], and its trunk retains the same dimensions as the stock; but it is by seed that it should be multiplied. It reproduces itself perfectly true, and if the young plants remain bushy during the first years, the tree shoots afterwards, and, thanks to its rapid growth, promptly assumes large dimensions." Prof. Wiekson says that the species first gained prominence in 1881, when the California State Horticultural Society referred the question of its botanical affinities to G. P. Eix- ford.—American Garden. SHEEP SUGGESTIONS. IF we are to te successful in producing early lambs, we must not attempt to do business in a slipshod way. Both the ewe and lamb must have the best of care. OIL meal is growing in popularity as a food for sheep, and we are glad to note the fact. It would be an excellent thing if every flock-muster could feed some. IF a sheep is in very poor condition in the fall of the year, it is better to kill and bury the animal than to fool with it through the winter. The chances tiro ihat it will die anyway. IT will be necessary to remember that roots are principally water, and that if the breeding ewe is given too much of this cold water, while carrying the lamb, abortion may result. . THE sheep is an easy animal to fatten, and the most of the fat could be laid on with less grain, if there was a little more care given to the matter of feeding 1 . So animal should be .recklessly led, the sheep especially. BOBKBT Quins, of Michigan, asserts that wool growing will pay at thirty- five cents per pound for wool and mutton will pay at four and five cents a pound, if the business is well managed. We" think that that is true, but the sheep business can not possibly pay at less prices. IT need hardly be said that a flock- master has no right to complain of the , unprofitableness of sheep husbandry, unless he has given the best of management to the business. There are a pood many failures in all lines of business that are the direct result of poor management.—Western Rural. | Largest Orchard In the Union. The largest bearing apple orchard in the United States, says an exchange, is in Leaven worth, Kan., and comprises 487 acres of bearing trees. This year the yield was 79,170 bushels, the gross ' receipts being 850,000. Yet nearly $100 t was cleared off each acre. The owner _ considers the Missouri Pippin the best paving apple in the orchard, 'ie Ben '» Bayis next and. the Jonathan third. itly set an 600-aere orchard County. BRAN FOR FEEDING. A Concentrated Food PoBHcsMng; Cousld* ernblfe Nutritive Vnluc. Wheat bran is n concentrated food and possesses considerable nutritive value. It contains rather an excess of asb, and for this reason it is good to feed to young or growing stock, as it develops bone and muscle. It is a splendid feed to use in connection with poor bulky feeds, like straw, fodder and roots: fed with them it will aid materially to make up a complete ration. Ly using it, the objection to selling grain, rather than to feed out to stock, is largely overcome. Wheat and potatoes can be grown and sold oil the farm if bran is purchased and used in connection with other materials, as bran retains a large proportion of the mineral elements. In feeding, the animals take out certain parts that contain auiuyil nutrition i5nd leave considerable plant food that is saved in the manure, and can bs added to the soil to retain its fertility. During the winter it can be mixed with corn meal, weight for weight, to good advantage, lessening the cost of feeding at the same time lidding to the fertility of the farm. It is desirable, to a large extent tit leust, if the fertility of the soil is to be kept up, to plan and carry out a good system of rotation, mul in doing this there will be more or less products that ought to be marketed to good advantage!. Hut in doing this something else should be used to take the place of what is marketed. If this is not done, nearly or quite every thing that is grown .should be fed out to vigorous, thrifty stock and the manure be saved. If any is sold a sufficient quantity of other materials should be purchased to take its pluce; bran and oil meal are tho two principal materials that can be used in this way, and where this is done n good supply i.ii! coarse rough feed can be purchased said used, even if it is necessary to sell a portion of the grain. This is especially the case in feeding growing 1 stock, and with milk cows, if fed in connection with corn meal and oil meal, it will aid to Increase both the quality and quantity of the milk. One of the best rations that can be made up for the milk cows during the winter is clover or millet hay with corn and oil meal and wheat bran. Hoots can be added when they can be had conveniently, and in doing this have the value of the manure increased. At the price bran can usually be secured at, it can be used at least through the winter to a good advantage and more stoclc be kept in proportion to tho grain than would otherwise be, possible. —X. J. Shepherd, in i'urm, Field and Stockman. SHOEING A HORSE. Direction* Ilecently IKBUCII by tho Department of AVar. The following instructions to smiths who shoe cavalry horses have been issued from the Department of War: "In preparing the horse's foot for tho shoe do not touch with the knife tho frog, sole or bars. In removing surplus growth of that part of the foot which is the seat of the shoe use the cutting pincers and rasp and not the knife. The shoehig-knife may be used if necessary in using the top clip. Opening the heels or making a cut in the angle of the wall at the heel must not be allowed. The rasp may be used upon the part of the foot when necessary and the same applies to the pegs. No cutting with the knife is permitted, the rasp alone is necessary. Flat-footed horses should be treated as the necessity of each case may require. In forging the shoe to fit the foot be careful that the shoe is fitted to and follows the circumference of the foot clear round to the heels; the heels of the shoe should not be extended back straight and outside of the walls at the heels of the horse's foot, as is frequently done. Care' must be used that the shoe is not fitted too small, the outside surface of the wall being then rasped down to make the foot short to suit the shoe, as often happens. The hot shoe must not be applied to the horse's foot under any circumstances. Hake the upper of foot surface cf the shoe perfectly flat so as to give a level bearing. A shoe with a concave ground surface should be used." EXCELLENT STALL. Ono Tluit Is a Model of Simplicity unrt Kft'ectlvencHH. I stepped into a horse barn recently where the stalls had been built up with drops behind, as if for cows. Such an arrangement is not fit for horses. It is dangerous, besides useless in keeping them clean, the purpose for which it was made. Another stall elsewhere was a, model of simplicity and effectiveness. Nearly level with the surrounding floor, it was made of strips of plank two inches wide placed half an inch apart. Below this was a tight floor made of plank (asphalt would have been better and in the long run cheaper), which sloped slightly to a small trough in the rear, also out of sight. All the urine was thus drained away from the surface where the horse stood and slept and his bedding was wasted but little. A large iron hook was kept in the stable, with which to clear the long slots between the strips of plank. Over the trough at the rear a strip was hinged, so that any obstruction could be removed. The forward half of the stall floor may be boxed in and filled with clay for the front feet to rest on. Natural conditions and positions for the feet prevent contraction and many hoof diseases. The clay is easily pawed by the horse into comfortable shape and keeps the feet cool and moist.—Jlotlister Sage, in N. EL Homestead, .jj. THE ORIGIN OF PHRASES. CANADIAN NORTH-WEST NOTES. "TIIEBE is no love lost between them" occurs in the old ballad of "The Babes in the Wood'' and in a tale of the days of Shakespeare entitled "Slontchcsney." "BETTER late than never" was used over three hundred years ago by Thomas Tucker in his "Five Hundred Points ov Good Husbandry." Later on Bnnyan used it in his "Pilgrim's Progress." "Tiprrao the wink," generally regarded as a vulgar phrase, is to be found in n. grave historical romance. It occurs in "Valerius, a Koman Story," by John Gibson Lockhart, Sir Walter Scott's son-in-law. "IlAULiNO over tho coals" dates six or seven centuries Ixick, when .feudal* 1 barons often used harsh methods of exacting gold from the rich Jews by suspending their victims above slow fires until they paid ransom or died. NOT a few of _ the phrases in use at this day originated with Lyly and nro fount! in his "Euphuos," published ill 1580. Among them are: "Caught napping," "brown study," "catching birds by putting salt on their tails," etc. TIIE term "blue stocking" was originally used in Venice about the year 1400 to designate literary classes by colors. The application of Uio term to women originated with Miss Hannah More's description of the "lilue Stocking Club" in her "lias Bleu." "I ACKXOWI.KDOK the corn" originated with a slave in the. South, lie was charged with stealing corn. Having a sack with him. he was also charged with stealing that. His reply was: "No, sir; I 'knowledge do corn, but I ain't g-wino to "knowledge to de sack." "DnowJfixo tho miller" originated from the following fact: If the millstream below tho mill is dammed or stoppod the water is ponded back and the mill becomes "tailed." There is too much water, tho mill not work and the miller is said to be "drowned out."

An important feature in immigration into Manitoba during 1890 was the influx of settlers from Dakota. A number of these were Canadians who had become discouraged by a succession^ of poor crops and decided to '•eturn to their own country. Settlers from Dakota drive across the international boundary into the Canadian Northwest, all along tho frontier, being anxious to share iu the prosperity of what appears to be a marvelously productive country.
