Some believe that if the fouiidationhof ajtree be properly laid in youth, there will be no necessity to prune an adult tree. This does'i~ot' accord wifh the writer's experience. I An intel ligent-examination, both-with the-saw-and. good. knife ini hand;, should Ibe made every winter. Real good, large healthy leaves in every part of a tree are of vast importance, and these cannot, be had whey branches are close together,' smether ing one another.

Agricultural, & c. SORE SHOULDERS IN HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 10 May 1884

SOR ,SKULDERS IN :ORSES. Farm horses-are most liable to hae. sore shoulders in early spring, when unaccustomed to work. If humanity does not lead to care in prevention and cure, interest will prompt it, for certainly a horse with sound shoulders will do more work ttan if these be swollen and lacer ated. ,Prevention isibetter than cur e. The first poinit is to secure :good, ' well-fitting collars, those of soft leather, of equal hardness on both sides. Many collars are stuffed more solidly on "oc'6 idd"ftliine oni 'th" other, and should 'be -re~:r' jected. The horse should be fitted to a collar at the shop, as two very seldom! have t shoulders .ex?tly, alike. I have often wondered that farmers doi noit have collarg'hiade especially' for-, eachi tiorse. !The cost would be amply repaid, as it is slight compared with the increased ser ivce that would thus be secured. I prefer a :. collar stuffed with hair. The leather should be kept well oiled, especially where meeting the shoulder. Pur...
