THE LIVELY EEL. ill; In UM Actlvn un<l Spry iiB lip Is Slippery uncl Bod and Gun: Young eels, ill passing up a river, show the most extraordinary perseverance in overcoming all obstructions. Thte large floodgates— sometimes fifteen feet in height—on the Thames might be supposed sufficient to bar the progress of a fish the'size of d darning needle. But young eels have a wholesome Idea that nothing can stop them; and, in cohsequpnce, nothing does. Speaking of the way hi which they ascend flood-gates and other riers, one writer says:. "Tlibse wliich die stick to the post; others, 'Avliich get a little higher, meet Avith the same fate until at last a layer of them Is formed. Avhich enables the rest to oA-ercome the difliculty of the passage. The mortality ivsultiug fi-om such 'forlorn hopes' greatly helps to account for the difference, in the number of young eels'pii their upward migration, and that jof thosiL- which return, down stream in; .-llie autumn.

One of the old beliefs was that they sprang from mud; a rival theory litold tiliat young eels developed from fragment separated from their .parents' bodies by the rubbing against; rocks. One old author not only declared that they came from May dew,., but gave the following recipe for prodxiclug them: "Out up two turfs'covered.

"VT^Y. Vi i MI tils ..-;' Mr. .Tabesj Webster of Ooutralia, 111., Avell knoAVii us a practical fruit groAver, gives the following timely and A r ory valuable suggestions iu tho Kansas Farmer: We aro once firmly fixed in the belief that elevated, rolling land Avas the only suitable placo to locate an orchard. We are not sure but such locations iAvore preferable thirty years ago. Three decades have Avrought great changes. To-day AVO prefer for an apple orchard any prairie or timber lands susceptible of surface drainage. For a peach orchard AVO still prefer tho high ground, no mailer if too poor to gi-OAV a crop of corn. For cherries or pears AVO prefer rolling, rich land, and Avould stop cultivated crops after throe or four years. Tho one thing to ! be aA r olded, especially for an apple orchard, is too rapid surface drainage, tho Avashliig away and impoverishing of tho soil. Level lands, Avhen barely .susceptible of surface drainage, do not lu average seasons contain any more moisture than is necessary under good cultivation to produce healthy trees and perfect apples. Lack of moisture ahvays follows slack cultivation during the Summer and causes starvation and disaster to the bearing orchard at other times. The work necessary Avill depend very much on the preceding crop. We prefer uiaMug preparations iq, bo necessary to keep this ground surface loose each side of the trees and to ploAv under a fnrj-oAV of tlip sod, making the strip Avider for cultivation as the development' of the trees require. Wo prefer corn for an 'orchard crop for about throe years, Avilh thorough level cultivation, taking care in planting and cultivating not Ho crowd tho frees. The trees should have the ground stirred about ilicm at loast twice after i ho! corn is ijiid by. Aftoi the throe years no crop should bo taken from the orchard ground except the center strips. Those, jf ifroppod, should be liberally'manured) At least 'half the ground surface' must be devoted entirely to the cullivatioii and the development of the trees. Leave nothing undone to stimulate a healthy groAvlh in the early Summer.- A disk harroAV passed, over the .surface both Avays, twice a month from (he first of -May to the 10th of ,August, so'fts to keep the entire surface loose to the' depth of three inches, is In my, judgment tho best system of cultivation for young bearing orchards, and such cultivation for young bearing orchards, and such cultivation is an effectual remedy and protection from the ba'd effects of long Summer and .Autumn 'drouths. If chyv- or is grown in a young apple orchard after the sixth year-, it should be left upon fhe ground to form a mulch. Unless an ecjiilvalent of barn-yard manure can be put back, no stock of any kind should be turned into a young orchard. The woods Avhich may grow in a young orchard after August. 10, cultivated as recommended, will do no harm and servo to shade (he ground during tho late Summer and Autumn. We prefer two-year-old, or good, smooth, oven- graded three-year-old trees. There is no difference in the value to planter if graded to run of even size and quality. We fail to see any economy in planting (rocs of less than two years' growth and prefer root grafted, the more roled from scion the better. A. tree of any kind of fruit so propagated as to be Avholly or in part on its own root by the time it bears fruit is unequalled by any mode of propagation ,foi- Southern door boldly, and Avheii the lady came he bowed obcisantly, says an exchange.
