CUTTING BACK FRUIT TREES
°«ach Can Stand More Sevsrs Prun-
ing Than Eithar Cherry or Appla
A great many fartora enter into the
determination of Juat how a tree
should be cut back. In thla article,
•ays a Colorado bulletin, only a gen
eral rule ran be given. Only three to
Ave of the best limbs should be cut
back to eight or twelve Inches, mak-
ing the cut Juat in the direction In
which the limb should grow.
All trees should be kept low-
headed. Be careful not to cut off the
lower limbs when It Is not necessary.

Everyone ought to cultivate a
friendship for trees, and along with
his animal friends have a few tree

as they are usually the very ones to
be left. Lowest limbs should be from
IS to 24 Inches from the ground If
the tree has been pruned so that the
top is much higher than this. It is
usually best to cut the entire top off
about three feet from the ground and
depend upon forming the top from
limbs which come out below this

pruning than either cherry or apple.
Peach trees Bhould generally be cut
off about IS inches from fte ground,

TRAINING THE YOUNG TREES
Work |g More Needful Than Pruning

<By W. J. GREEN.)
Training the young orchard Is more
Heedful than pruning, and should con-
sist mostly in shaping the trees or
keeping them in form and properly
balanced. Very often the side oppo-

the prevailing winds come, becomes

P. A. Talbot, Who Located Sacred

Scene of Place Never Before
Seen by White Men.
Cape Town, Africa.—Mr. and Mrs.
P. Amaury Talbot have Just returned
lo London from Central Africa, where
they had spent two years In an anthro-
pological, botanical and zoological sur-
vey from the Qulf of Guinea eastward
across the continent, ln a statement
Issued to the London press. Mr. Talbot
declares that certain territory he and j
his wife traversed had never been vis-
ited by a white man before. He said
lhat In the Southern Nigerian bush he
found evidence of the origin of the
witchcraft panic, which swept over
England, New England and southeast-
ern Europe ln the middle of the aev- j
enteenth century. Said Mr. Talbot:
"The bush, with Its soft green twi-
light, dark shadows, and quivering
lights, is peopled by many terrors, but
among these 'ojje,' or witchcraft,
reigns supreme. Should the suspicion
of witchcraft fall upon any one. only
trial by ordeal can free them. The
most usual one Is that of eating esere,
a poisonous bean which almost In-
variably kills the suspected person.
The ordeals of boiling oil poured upon
the palms of the bands and of pepper-
corns Inserted ln the eyes are far less
dreaded, not only because their re-
sults are practically never fatal, but
because the physical anguish entailed
is acknowledged to be less intense
than that caused by esere."
One of the most Interesting discov-
eries was that of the Lake of the
Dead ln the Oban country.
"The name of this lake." said Mr.
Talbot, "occurs In many of the tribal
songs, but for a long time I could not
discover the meaning of the word, and

tion. anil when I believed I was In the
