,1' wlMSsisiit ii SljjVfCUUUttfl. Tlio Horticulturist, for Match, has an article on Special Manures Tor Fruit Trees, from which we make the following extract '. For oM apple orchards, upon soil defi cient in lime, we would recommend a top dressing of lime for the first lime of two hundred bushels to the acre. This will, usually, if the land is in good condition, bring the trees in good bearing condition again. In some soils the effect will be im. mediate, and in others it will require one or two seasons for the lime to produce its ef fect. For middle-sized bearing trees, a peck of air-slackened lime to cacti tree is suilicient. It is, perhaps, best applied in the autumn, but it will answer very well in the spring. Scatter it crenly over the surface of the ground, as far as the roots extend. It mar be ploughed or hoed under slightly, or left upon the surface, as it will find its way downwards in the soil.
