A Device For Setting Out Tree)—A Good Way of Protecting Young Trees. When the stake which is supposed to locate tho exact spot where n tree should stand is palled up to dig the hole, it is often difficult to find the precise spot again. A device like the one shown in tho illustration here reproduced from American Gardening obviates this difficulty. Two pieces of board, one 2 feet TREE SETTZNQ DEVICE. long and the other 3 feet long, nre hinged together, a notch being out in the end of the shortest piece. An upright stick, sharpened on the lower end, is run through the center of the longest board. A peg Is also placed in the end of tho same piece to secure the device in the ground. It is used by placing the notch in the shorter end of tbe board, against tlfe stake which locates the position for the tree. It is then turned back and the hole dug, after which the end is let down and the tree placed in the notch, when it is of course in the exact position previously occupied by the stake, and if your measurements are correct in a straight lino with the other trees. The best means of protecting young trees from mischievous animals in the same inclosure, according to the authority already quoted, is to drive three stout stakes about the tree and equally distant from one another. Staple the end of some fencing wire to one of the stakes at the ground. Then wind tha A THEE GUARD. wiro around tho stakes, close enough to prevent tho animals getting their heads through until tho top of the stakes is reached. A few staples now driven in will bold tho wire iu place. This protection is inexpensive and easily constructed. It is better than one made altogether of wood, sinoo it excludes very little sun from tho troo and does not afford insects, larvae, etc., conveniently protective corners or crevices. It also protects tho trees from workmen that aro careless with plow or cultivator. When the tree no longer needs protection, tho staples can bo drawn and tho wiro bo. unwound aud used elsewhere. • Spread of the ItiigHlan Thistle. Tho division of botany in tho United States department of agriculture reports the appearance of tho Russian thistle in various new localities. Bulletin No. 16 of that division contains colored maps showing tho territory in which it had been found to tho close of 181*8. It lias boon since 1808 fouud in Hammond, Lake county, Ind.; Cannon Falls, Goodhue county, Minn,; Marshall, Lyon county, Minn.; Northwestern, Jefferson county, Neb.; Blue Hill, Webster county, Nob. j Stockville, Frontier county, Nob.; Parks, Duiidy county, Nob.; La Ballo, Weld county, Colo.; Nuuipa, Ada county, Ida., and Manitoba, Canada. In almost all these localities it has appeared only along tho lino of railroads, and with tbo exception of Nampa, Ida., is now officially reported for tho llrst time. Tho occurrence of tho Russian thistle iu Idaho is regarded as a very serious matter. Tho region already iufoHtcd by (he liussiuu thistle lies iu tbe plains oast of tbo Rocky mountains and is therefore separated by this natural barrier from the wheat raising areas of Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Novuda and Utah. Tbo only way iu which it can enter this aroa is by introduction iu impure seed and by transportation, ou- puaially along railroads. JSvory 6u- deitvor should bo used by tbo farmers mid civil authorities of this region to exterminate it along tho railroads and to une only the cloanout aud best seed wheat obtainable. If tbo HUKHJUII thistlo 01100 infests this region, its next step will bo to cross tho Bierra Nevada into tbe wheat ureas of central California. A copy of bulletin No. 15, containing directions for eradicating thin post, will bu forwarded to any applicant, uud u spooiuiuu of any plant supposed to bo llio liuKsiuu tliintlu will bo positively idwjtl/lur] upon ritawipt by thu depart- utout of agriculture.

Tlielr Principal Eourucs — The Cheapaat Form In Wlilcli to Purchase Them, The cheapest form in which to buy commercial fertilizers is an important question, and intelligent farmers will be interested iu tho following, from American Agriculturist, bearing on the subject: Of materials furnishing phosphoric acid, South 'Carolina mid Florida rock phosphate and bones are tbo most largely used. Tho rock phosphate contains about GO per cent of phosphate of lime, which is about tbe same as is contained in bones. When this rock is ground flue and treated with sulphuric acid, it resolves itself into two substances. One is a soluble phosphate of lime called su- perphosphate; tbe other is sulphate of lime—that is, gypsum, or land plaster. These two substances cannot well be separated, so they are sold together uu- dor the name of superphosphate. This usually contains 14 per cent of soluble phosphoric acid and can be bought for from $15 to $18 per ton, making tho phosphoric acid cost from 6 to 0^ cents per pound. Ground bone or bonemeal contains about 23 per cent of phosphoric acid in an insoluble condition. It also contains about'4 per cent of nitrogen, also insoluble. Both tbe phosphoric acid and nitrogen become available as plant food by chemical action iu the soil. The rapidity with which these changes take place largely depends upon the fineness of the bonemeal. Calling the phosphoric acid iu the fine bonemeal worth 4% cents per pound and tbe nitrogen worth 15 cents per pound, bonemeal is worth $32.70 per ton. Another source of phosphoric acid is a phosphate of lime produced as a product in the manufacture of steel. It is called by various names, among which are "Thomas slag" and "odorless phosphate." This phosphate contains about 20 per cent of phosphoric acid in a condition that is insoluble in water, but when ground very fine soou becomes available to the plants. This is particularly true on low or mucky ground. It is claimed that phosphor! acid in this form is more easily token up by the plants than in the form in which it occurs in bones. Calling the prospborio acid in this phosphate worth 4% cento per pound, its value is $18 per ton. The principal sources of nitrogen are nitrate of soda, wulphato of ammonia, dried blood, tankage and yard manure. Nitrate of soda contains about 16 per cent of nitrogen, or from 810 to 320 pounds a ton. As a ton of nitrate of soda can be bought for $40 or $47, nitrogen in this form costs 15 cents per pound. Sulphate of ammonia contains about 30 per cent, or 400 pounds per ton. It costs $70 per ton, which makes nitrogen in this form cost \iy 3 cents per pound. Tho amount of nitrogen in dried blood is somewhat variable, 10 per cent being, I think, about the average. The prices aro also variable. If it contains 10 per cent of nitrogen, there would bo 200 pounds per ton, which, at 15 cents per pouud, would make the blood worth' $30 per ton. Potash can bo bought in the form of muriate of potash, which contains 50 per cent actual potash, for about 4% cents per pound. In the form of "high grade" sulphate of potash it costs b% cents per pouud. t* ——-~— —~~~ Portable Houso For Poultry. There is always moro or loss grain lost in harvesting, shelled oil the heads or broken down out of reach of the reaper. When grain was high in price, farmers coulil afford to ignore this waste and let it seed the land with a volunteer crop. But iu these times every little counts, and even tbo waste in tho Kraiufiolds must bo picked up and utilized. But 1IENIIOUSK OK WHEELS. whoso labor is so valueless that it will not cost more than tbo grain is worth?

Henry Watterson and Ex-Governor Uearei W«r« Preient—Many Regimental Re. nnloni Held—Four Candldatei For Com- mander-in-chief—Lontivltla and St. Paul After the Next Encampment. PiTTSBcraa, Sept. 11.—Of. the first day of the 28th annual encampment O. A. B., nothing but the best can be said of it. The weather was superb and the crowds large and no accidents happened to mar the day. The marching event ot the day was the parade of the naval veterans, who went over the father long route with a precision and excellence of drill that called forth the heartiest cheers from the spectators. The veterans numbered, 1,000 and were led by Bear-Admiral Osborne. Social Brent of the Day. In the afternoon the ladies of the G. A. R. and Women's Relief corps were through the city suburbs in carriages, following which a reception was held at the Mouogahelit house. The social event of the day was a reception by Mrs. George Westinghouse at her suburban residence "Solitude" given to the visiting ladies. Some ot the delegates' who have attended similar affairs on many occasions pronounce this the most gorgeous they have ever witnessed. The floral decorations were the finest ever seen in this city. Henry Watterson, ex-Governor Beaver and all of tho prominent national officers of the G. A. R. were present. Many reunions were held during the day and weiring by members of the different regiments and many were the reminiscences exchanged. The sidewalks were inadequate to accommodate the crowds that thronged them and tho roadways were used along the main streets. Street cars and vehicles were blockaded. Tnkon altogether Pittsburg has never before enjoyed such a soouo of animation. Innumerable bands niurelietl through the down-town streets, serenading the newspapers and prominent men. One of the features dedicated to thu first day of the encampment was the performance of Fred N. Itinis' now composition of "War and Peaoo" at the Exposition ball Monday night, and bis musical spectutsle, dedicated to tbe encampment, was given by the Thirteenth regiment band of New York, a grand chorus of 400 local singers, a company of the Pennsylvania National Guards, Ransom post No. HOO G.

His annual report showed a very encouraging condition of affairs. During the past year all the old accounts have seen settled, as well as all bills of the present administration. In dosing, Rear Admiral Osborne stated that, having served four terms, he would like to be relieved from duties of his office. Second Vice President Francis B. Allen of the northern Ohio department proposed a resolution asking congress at its next session to so amend the law regarding enlisted men in the navy that those competent may aspire to higher positions. The resolution was supported by the hipmates and it was decided to memorialize congress. As the law stands, enlisted men cannot rise above the rank oi warrant officers. After the reading of reports and presentation of a large number of resolutions, which were referred, Francis B. Allen of Hartford, Conn., was elected commander. The "Tars" brought their day to » close by holding a "dog watch" in the old city hall. A number of distinguished speakers were present, among them Governor Pattison, M«yor R. McKenna of Pittsburg:, Mayor W. Kennedy ot Allegheny and Admiral Osborne. Traffic Better Than Kait r«ar.
