This is especially true of the death of Edwin Booth, which had been discounted ior months and anticipated for weeka, and which occurred at hia New York residence, about an hour after thiß midnight.

OUT ON THE RANCHES E. L. Clarke says, in the Pomona progress: I am an advocate of low pruning, and have been for several years. Previous to that time, before I had sufficient experience with orange and lemon trees, I was in favor of high pruning. My reasons for low pruning may be stated briefly as follows, and I think if people will take time to con ' aider the reasons, they will be converted to the low-pruning idea. The right or wrong pruning of a fine orchard is a .matterof $100 per acre in some years, [ and there are numerous orchards that have been injured for several years by ignoramuses at work on the trees. First—There is no danger of the trunk and larger limbs becoming sun-burned and infected with borers, which will in time destroy the usefulness of the tree . if not kill it. < < Second—The fruit is nearer the ground I and does not require so much labor as when picking from the step-ladder—a saving of 60 per cent in the cost of har vesting the crop. Third—The lower bra...

12 AMONG THE AUTHORS [nv l. nunvMitn.i Funck & Wagnnils have jnst issued part seventh of their Columbian Histor ical novel series, by John B. Mnnick. The readers have already passed through the age of discovery, conquest, bigotry, colonization, reason and tyranny. In this present volume we see tbe a,:e of superstition weli-handied, the char acters and ecenee, although creatione of the author, still in no wise discredit the genuineness of the historical annals, which are presented with conscientious fidelity. The titla of this number is very appropriate and a sign board indi cative of that epoch in the history of our country, The Witch of Kslem; or, Credulity Huns Mai. It is a difficult ta r -k to go hack to ages by gone, to divest ourselves of what we know and are and from a clear conception of generations that have been, of their expe riences, objects, modes of lilo, thought and expression. It is a task better suited to the novelitt than the historian, and even the former tread...
