' - live Fences . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 4 April 1868
- live Fences . In some places timber is so scarce that wooden fences are a serious tax upon the farmer , and according as the forest s disappear fencing becomes more expensive . It is probable the time is not far distant when wooden fences must be abandoned and live fences adopted . Farmers should begin in time to familiarize themselves with the latter mode of fencing , and procure such hedge plants as are most suitable for this purpose . The European Hawthorn Is perhaps the best hedge plant ln the world , but we have never seen a good fence made with it in this country . The Osage Orange , the Locust , and the Barberry have been used with good effect . Any healthy , thorny plant that will grow to a sufficient size , and bear trimming well , will be found suitable for a live fence . Farmers should use live fences for dividing their farms , and in every other place where a permanent fence is required . Little nurseries of hedge plants should be made on every farm , and when the plan...

Garden Tools . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 4 April 1868
Garden Tools . A set of good Implements greatly facilitates garden work . The garden spade Is an institution in itself which cannot be dispensed with altogether , althongh in many places it is superseded by the digging-fork , which is a better implement , as with it the ground can be tilled more effectually and with less labor . Hoes of different shapes and sizes are a necessity in every garden . The Dutch shuffle hoe is an excellent lm element for cutting weeds and grass on gravel walks , as with it the work can be done without injuring the walk . A reel-and-line is indispensable in laying out walks , borders , or rows for vegetables . • A set of drill-markers of different dimensions will be found useful . Rakes of various sizes , sprinklers with fine and coarse roses , wredlng and transplanting trowels , a bandroller , a water-cask , and a wheelbarrow are also necessary .

The sets should be cut two or three weeks before they are planted , and kept in some dark , warm place where they will sprout . This forwards their growth considerably . The sprouts should not be broken when being planted ; they should be set ln an . upright position , and slightly covered with soil . - ¦ . « -. L __ W R . A .
