This. shade troa (u stioo in pastures lias been very ably disous8ed in ncarly all of our ngricultuial papers ; but the humane farmers ave all in the affirmative, and wo beliove that tha fact in regard to profit - to say nothing of the comfort of animnls exposed to the scorching raya of the Run in summer - will be fonnd on the samo side. Tiiogo farmers ivho have made the too conimoo mistako of cutting down every tree when the land is cleared should now endoavor to repsir tbe Iops by planting out a few treus this f all.
