A belt of wood or other windbreak may be sufficient protection for it even if it does blos som early. What is of more import ance is that it should be well drain ed.

Wo think ho said apple trees should not bo where the water was within four feet of the surface, while pear trees might be sot within three feet of the water level If the water was not stagnant, and quinces within one foot. Pears will, do well in a clay soil, while apples and peaches will not unless it iii thoroughly underdrained, and qysiv then peachc-. will not do as well us on light sandy or gravelly soil.

A MIDSHIPMAN'S ADVENTURE IN JAPAN. A correspondent of "To-Day" tells the following amusing story of a Brit ish midshipman's adventure In Japan: Last New Year's Day a midshipman from one of the big cruisers was "taking in" the city of Toklo In a rickshaw. There was a keen breeze blowing, hut it was prevented from howling merrily through the middy's whiskers hy-reason of the fact that he hadn't any. But if Ills faco were de void of hirsute adornment, he, by way of compensation, held between his lips a number one Manila cheroot of imposing proportions, which he puff ed with ostentatious vigor. Now, these simple facts were noted by an equally simple but sternly conscientious Jap anese policeman, who prided himself upon his entire and precise know ledge of the laws of the land of the "rising sun." When the Oriental bobby saw that juvenile naval offi cer's glowing but beardless counten ance from afar he thought of the Jap anese equivalent for the British "Ha! ha!" and ordered the coolie t...
