THE NATIONAL TRIBUNE: WASHINGTON, D. 0., THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1382. FARM AND FIRESIDE. Some Practical Suggestions for Our Agricultural Headers. Much interest is now being given to the forestry question, and, as frequently occurs when jnatters of this kind become popular questions, much of vague and crude specula tion is indulged in by those who have but little knowledge of the subject, but feel called upon to promulgate their ideas, which may bo right or wrong, according to the lead they happen to follow. The correlation existing between trees and rainfall is one of the popular themes in this connection, and while there is no lack of asser tions, there is a notable lack of facts upon which assertions must be based, in order to make them valuable or worthy of consideration. While there are those who hold that the destruction of forests diminishes the rainfall, there arc others who maintain that the existence of for ests is altogether dependent upon rains, and that the cause of rainf...

True, wo did not offer our lives for our country, but wo gave iu many very many instances all clso that wo had, and there are cases whero offering of life is rather to bo preferred to a continual waiting, watching, and anxious care, if we could but make that sacrifice.

The ordinary method of fastening glats in window-cashes is to lay in tho glass, fecuro it with small triangular p;eces of tin, aud then filling tho outside of the sah-bar with putty. Whfn this method was applied to greenhouses and pla-t frames it occasioned a great deal of tronble in the annual necessity of replacing loose putty and stopping leaks.

THE NATIONAL TRIBUNE: WASHINGTON, D. 0., THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1882. FARM AND FIRESIDE. Some Practical Suggestions for Our anv Agricultural Readers. Whoro bedding, so-called, is practiced, which means the employment for summer decoration of tender plants, which are renewed annually, tlie ground should be cleaned up after the frosts have destroyed the plants; then give a heavy dressing of barn-yard manure, and dig up the ground so as to leave it hi the roughest possiblo state for the action of frosts. The rotation of crops is quite as necessary in the flower garden as it is in the farm. No flowering plant will exemplify this better than the common verbena, which, if planted in the same bed for three successive years, will become diseased and per fectly worthless as a flowering plant. Manures will help tho soil to some extent, but nothing short of a change of crops for three or four years will restore its elements so as to fit it again for the growth of verbcna3. The same is applicab...
