'Some of them, but not all. I ju?t

Mrs. Gardner was one of Mrs. Hayes'

Sir Isaac Newton was pronunced a
dunce in hisarly school days. He stool
low in bis elasso?, and seemed to have
no relish for study. One day the 44 bright
by" of the school gave him a kick,
which caused him severe pain. The in
suit stung .-young Newton to the quick,
and he resolved to make himself felt aud
respected by improved scholarship. He
applied himself resolutely to study, and,
ere long, stood in his dauses above the
boy who kicked him, and ultimately be
came the first scholar in school.
Newton owed his pre-eminence in his
philosophical studies more to persever
ance and application than to any marvel
ouse natural endowment.
Oliver Goldsmith, than whom no boy
could appear wore stupid, was the butt
of ridicule at school. A school-dame, af
ter wonderful patience and perseverance,

Jir. Millivan Hutchinson, of Ttrl-ti v-
.wriTvu leuera patent last May or a
new and novel invention for making pro
ductiye fruit trees iu a single year from
fruit bearing limbs. Limbs that r. k
spared from trees that bear desirable fruit
which bear right alonir. ust u. ilmi.o-l. .l.
had not been severed from thp r..r
stock, and in a short time become fine
thrilty trees, retaining ihe habits of the
trees from which they were taken. Thi,
is what Mr. Hutchinson claims bis invci -tion
will do. From the imperfect descrip
tion we havo bad of the process, it i. im
possible to give a very'clear idea of bow
the thing is done. Into the limb however
which is intended for the future. irM
small roots are grafted ju.t above where
we urao ia severed. Jielow these roots
the branch is girded. About and below
the roots is placed a box filled with .arft.
This operation is performed in the spring.
During the summer the roots grow aJd
life is thus established between them and
the limb above. In the autumn the limb
is severed at the place where it wa. gird
ed, and set in the ground in the same
way any young tree would be. The ne.t
year, according to Mr. Hutchinsou'i .uto
ment, this new tree will bear fmit just as
if it had not been cnt from the parent tree.
To what extent this operation may be
carried, and how successful it may prove,
remains to be setu. We have no doubt
Mr. Hutchinson has demonstrated that
the nw trees will produce fruit at onee,
but we suppose sufficient time has not
elapsed since the experiments to deter
mine what effect early bearing mav have
upon their future growth. That a young
cn oe.ir iron to any extent and at
the same time put on a vigorous and tbrif-
lv trrnwlli i A ...
'j b'w"" " in accoruance wiin oar
oWrr.tku. And we suspect that Mr.
Uutchiusou will fail to produre very
healthy trees from the application of hi.
new di.covery. We .ball expect in a few
years to bear that they have becomu so
feeble that ibey will cease both to pro
duce fruit and to grow. If it shall prove
oiberw ise, tbe discovery is an important
Experiments to a considerable extent
have been made in Rri.tol and New
Hampton, and we hear that farmers iu
various part, of ibe Stte are bu ing farm
and town rights with the inteution of
testing the practicability of producing
early bearing fruit trees. If .nccessful,
a complete revolution in onr manner ot
obtaining applt trees will be the result.
Instead of buying trees from tbe nursery
which require from ten to twenty yi are
to come into bearing condition, the limbs
from our eld trees will be converted into
new ones that will give us fruit at once.
While wo have, no great expectations ia
regard to this new process, we have
thought it of sufficient importance to call
the attention of our readers to it, who can
for theraselv. make' snch inquiries and
investigating a the subject would seem
to merit. 2'Jie People.
